Rick's personal and encouraging approach to coaching and teaching bring out the best in each student or performer.
In addition to a customized focus on individual vocal characteristics, students / performers may expect to learn (or
relearn) all the essential basic techniques crucial to optimal singing such as proper breathing, diaphragm support
exercises, correct singing posture, throat relaxation, minimizing the break between ranges and much more.
Once the basics are covered, attention is turned to whatever matters most to each client, be it increasing vocal
strength, widening range, enriching tone, interpretation of a piece, preparation for performance, perfecting a song
or learning recording techniques. More »
