What happens when a professional singer, musician, composer, arranger, and producer are also a vocal coach? Well… he hears more than most and also knows music more than many vocal coaches. What does music have to do with singing? Think about it.
I have been informed that I should be charging $250 per hour because of my knowledge, experience, and success. I do know vocal coaches who are charging $500 per hour and $350 per hour. I’m different because my background and education are different.

True Or False? Anybody Can Sing. True, if they have at least one vocal cord (nowadays they are called vocal folds). An African proverb says that if you can walk, you can dance and if you can talk, you can sing. Okay. But how well can you sing? The answer is partially subjective but is …
