THE ART OF RECORDING From silence and a blank page to a commercially viable release.

Methodology

I have been very fortunate to have enjoyed a successful career in music, performing, recording and producing. As I expanded my interests beyond being a recording artist (Platinum Award) into production, non profit fund raisers and musical theatre, I realized that projects that gave back to the community, in whatever way, were the most satisfying experiences. From projects like Denver at the Apollo, for inner city youth, the Children and Music Project (“CHAMP”) and producing and recording Zubin Mehta at Lincoln Center one constant thread has sewn these experiences together, the power of the arts and music to build self esteem and develop discipline in young people. This is the primary focus of how I teach.

Experience

I have been teaching the ART OF RECORDING for over 12 years. Classes have ranged from in the 20's to just three. Most average around 10. I also offer one on one private lessons.
Two students have recorded songs that reached the national charts.
