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 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.
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.

Guitar lessons for all ages and levels in Maastricht
Hello! I’m offering guitar lessons as a home tuition in the Maastricht area, for all ages and levels. I have specialized in the classical guitar performance, and I can also guide you in accompaniment and techniques for that. Naturally, besides the playing I can help you with learning and reading the notes, and to overall connect more with the written music and it’s indications. Some examples of the general topics we can discuss to help your playing: -Sitting and positioning with the guitar -Hand positioning (left and right) -Control: how to use the fingers and the hands -Ideas for practicing efficiently -Eliminating tension -Giving a personal touch to a musical piece: sound, rhythm, articulation, phrasing, dynamics, vibrato -Learning to listen yourself and what you’re doing The guitar is an instrument full of colours and it possesses a resonance very similar to a human voice. With guitar it’s equally possible to play just simple and beautiful folk melodies, a complex fugue by Bach, or arrangements of your favourite songs. The guitar can be everything! I’m also eager to give guidance in music theory- related topics, something that we can easily connect with the guitar to make learning of those things more fruitful.
