American Style Singing In Popular, Jazz, R&B, Musical Theater

I use a very safe but effective vocal technique that helps singers to sing without a break in the voice, to have the endurance, flexibility and power required for modern singing in every style. I teach proper effective breathing techniques to give you the control you need.

I teach musicianship for singers so that they can sing better in tune and to do phrasing which is stylistically appropriate to the genre they choose.

I work with beginning singers, intermediate, and all the way to advanced or professional level singers.

I am a professional singer.

About Me

Composer – Musician – Singer
Growing up, in a very small but quaint town in West Virginia, Chuck was inundated with music from the forties— the musical era of his parents’ teenage years and twenties. He became a fan of 40s music right after a famous rock group had a song on the radio with a double negative in the lyrics. Radio no longer gave him satisfaction, in and of itself.
Chuck’s sister is literally a prodigy and, to this day, she’s a truly phenomenal pianist. His great aunt, a graduate of Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, played piano in silent movies way back in the 1920s. After Chuck put in his time at Marshall University, he continued his music studies privately with some of the finest teachers in the world in Philadelphia and in Las Vegas. He then went on the road with his own eight-piece band.
Chuck has been singing all his life; he began piano lessons at the age of eight, and trombone at the age of nine. He played trombone in his eight-piece band, touring the entire Midwest and Southeast U.S. — a total of twelve states. From there, he moved to Las Vegas and lived and performed there for eighteen years.

Acting and Directing
There is more. Three years, Chuck wrote, directed, and acted in radio plays, which were aired on public radio. Previous to these, he was a Thespian in high school, accumulating the highest number of Thespian points (for performances) of anyone from his school, having acted in plays and performed around 300 times as a singer.

Commercial Production and Voiceovers
Then there were several voiceovers, radio commercials, and jingle production. Doing radio commercials, he delivered in the markets of Las Vegas, Nevada and in Orlando, Florida. Here is a commercial Chuck produced in its entirety, which was on the air in Orlando.

Musician, Singer, and Bandleader
Not only did Chuck sing in Las Vegas shows, but he also played trombone in some of the big bands of Las Vegas. His wife, Sheree, a dancer, singer, language teacher (French, English, and German) and he decided to form a duo in Las Vegas and worked in major hotels. In recent times, they have worked many venues in Central Florida (Orlando area)

Vocal Coach
Along the way, Chuck also has done extensive vocal coaching, production, arranging, and composition. He has worked with several thousand students in Florida and in several foreign countries via the internet. Some of his students have been on Broadway, some have had recording contracts, and some have been on television in singing competition shows such as The Voice and Sing-Off.
Chuck believes in the old-fashioned way of developing an artist, but definitely doesn’t object to talented people being able to get a leg up in the business, as long as they are prepared. It’s part of paying the dues and earning the right to be on stage. Many singers cannot sing a chromatic scale, a cappella. Chuck can show you how.

Education

Marshall University, majored in music, extensive private lessons with professionals in Las Vegas in vocal technique (Debra Bonner-now in Hollywood and Greg Enriquez and a day with the guru of those gurus, Seth Riggs), arranging (With Don Hannah), and performing. Studied trombone in Philadelphia with Dr. Donald S. Reinhardt and learned breathing techniques beyond what is required for singers.

Experience / Qualifications

Professional singer and trombonist in my touring band in 14 states in U.S., sang in shows in Las Vegas and did performances in the Orlando, Florida area, produced commercials in Las Vegas and Orlando, have written over 2500 musical works and still writing most days.

Very knowledgeable and easy-going! I can testify he will not be laugh if you sing off-key! Be kind to yourselves and get a lesson!
Studies of scales, modes, and chords and how they function together. Music manuscript and/or midi sequencing may be used to assist in the understanding and use of music theory. We will apply what we study to songwriting, composition, and to arranging.
I started playing trombone at the age of nine. I have been a professional since 1972 and have played in many bands, including in Las Vegas, Nevada. I had a band in the 1970s, which toured in 14 states. I studied trombone with the famous Dr. Donald S. Reinhardt, in college, and also with Art Sayres of Las Vegas, who studied with Tommy Dorsey's teacher.

Florence
Piano and Singing Lessons/ Master's Degree holder/ 15 years of teaching experience
Music classes are tailor-made based on student's requirements and goals. Florence has 15 years of music teaching experience. She has taught music in international schools, pre-schools, private music schools and privately. She also performs internationally as an opera singer. She has created unique teaching syllables for students of different age groups as well as for students of different goals from her many years of experience. Florence connects with children easily; children usually feel at ease to play for her. She thinks it is important that there is a connection between the teacher and the student especially in learning music. Great musicians play from their heart and this made them vulnerable, therefore choosing a right teacher is crucial for their music development.
