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.
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.
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.

Zara
Classical singing and piano lessons for all levels and ages
Dear parents and students, I am a professional singer and pianist from Hong Kong, having more than 10 years of experience in music teaching. Having graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor degree in music and Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with a Master degree in classical singing (cum laude), I am currently pursuing my postgraduate study in singing at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel, under the tutelage of Valerie Guillorit. I am a holder of Licentiate Trinity College of London (LTCL) vocal and piano performance certificates, both with distinctions. Besides, I am a holder of ABRSM Grade 8 music theory certificate with merit. I have performed as soloist at a lot of occasions in Hong Kong and Europe, and the repertoire includes opera, Lied, oratorio and new music. I have given singing and piano lessons to students ranging from 2 to 40 years of age. Very happily, all of them had obtained distinctions in their ABRSM exams and some of them had won prizes in competitions. However, I do not teach them for distinctions and prizes. No matter what they get on their music journey, I love them with all my heart and I always believe that encouragement is the key. For beginners, I focus a lot on basic techniques. During the lessons, I also like to share my knowledge about history and theory, which are important building blocks to shaping a musician. For advanced learners, I would teach more about musicality and music presentation along with basic techniques. Of course, the actual teaching method depends on the personality and ability of student too. I grow up in a top English school in Hong Kong, so I can communicate in English fluently. I am confident that I will give my students the best learning experience. Please feel free to contact me if you would like a trial lesson:)

I then wanted to improve my vocal technique and it was through the vocal programs of Brett Manning (Singing Success) and the advice of his associates that I could improve my voice considerably. I am currently a member of the IVTOM International voice teacher of mix to train me more precisely on the scientific aspect of the voice.

Jules
Vocal technical coaching (all styles) and singing (lyrical) on Lausanne and its surroundings
How to learn to sing? To sing just and well? To answer these complex questions, I was interested in phonatory mechanisms, with speech therapists and phoniatres, I studied singing with a dozen singing teachers, I participated in many Masterclasses and trained myself in different institutions: first at the conservatories of Vaulx-en-Velin and Mâcon, then at the Regional Conservatory of Montpellier, and finally at the Haute Ecole de Musique in Lausanne where I am currently studying with Leontina Vaduva. It is first of all through passion that I want to convey what I have learned. This is felt, according to the words of my students, in my way of teaching which reconciles the rigor of art and the pleasure of singing. In my pedagogical approach, I clearly separate the vocal technique and the art of singing, that is to say the management of an objective mechanism, physical and physiological, of sound production (articulation of the language, management of the pressures subglottic and supra-glottic to achieve a pneumo-phono-resonantial balance), and the shaping of this sound to achieve musical beauty (make a beautiful "legato" line, tempo variations, nuances, etc.). ). When I start with a new student, I first make a diagnosis to determine the range of the voice, the level of resonantial passages, and check the health of the larynx (tonicity, endurance, flexibility). The typical course begins with vocal technique exercises and ends with the work of a musical piece. I adapt my course according to the needs of each one (for example, I can start with a Feldenkreis or Alexander technique exercise, relaxation, breath, or a physical warm-up), but also according to the desires and tastes of the student (the technical part will last more or less long). Considering that the stage is important for personal fulfillment and to set goals in music, I propose to my students to participate in the auditions and group lessons of the music school where I work in Lutry.
