A Note From Jon
The foundation of good singing in every style, from classical to rock, remains the same: solid function. I work with clients to improve breathing, body alignment, development of tone, and reduction of tension to meet the demands of a professional career. For students interested in studying classically, I work to develop a cultured sound, grounded in balanced function and blended registration. For clients who prefer to focus on contemporary styles and musical theatre, we work to develop flexible resonance and registration strategies for legit, mix, and belt vocal qualities.
