A Note From Jon
The foundation of good singing in every style, from classical to rock, remains the same: good function. I help students work on their breathing, body alignment, development of tone, and reduction of tension. In lessons, I apply these technique fundamentals to whatever style of music the student is interested in. For students interested in studying classically, I work to develop a cultured sound, grounded in balanced function and blended registration. For students who prefer to study Contemporary Commercial Music techniques, I am comfortable teaching all professional styles, including "legit", a CT dominant mix (head mix), a TA dominant mix (chest mix), and belt as part of an integrated, functional technique.
