As a teacher, John’s mission is to bridge the gap between vocal possibility and self-expression by instilling a variety of technique-based skills into your own vocal arsenal.

John studied under the MFA Musical Theatre Voice Pedagogy program, as an undergraduate BFA student--earning his certificate in the study. Additionally, John has continued his post-collegiate studies with Estill Voice Training--completing both levels I and II, while furthering his knowledge of Communication Sciences and Disorders, and Speech-Language Pathology research. His studies at The Pennsylvania State University were overseen by Dr. Wendy LeBorgne and Raymond Sage--two spearheads of the MT Voice Pedagogy world.

In addition to John's private studio that focuses on a variety of goals, such as: college audition prep, vocal technique, anatomy and physiology, repertoire selection, etc., John also serves as the Musical Theatre and Pop/Rock voice specialist at San Ramon Academy of Music.

By studying with John, you will obtain the fundamentals of:

   - Vocal Technique

   - Music Theory 

   - Repertoire Selection

   - Acting Through Song

   - Anatomy and Physiology


John places a large importance on designing his education toward the individual rather than viewing voice and acting as a universal monolith.

To my fellow Queer Artists of Color:

You have space, autonomy, and an individual voice in my studio space. As a Queer Artist of Color, I understand how easy it is to be put into a box, have an identity decided for you, or worst of all, be stripped of your own culture, sound, and truth. Throughout my years of studying vocal pedagogy, I have ensured that to be the forefront of conversations for artist’s training, as well as declared my senior vocal pedagogy final project/thesis on the decolonizing of vocal training in relation to Eurocentric standards and procedures. If you ever need a space to feel free and liberated to explore sounds with no judgment, there’s a place for you here always.

In an effort to make artistic training more accessible, if you are unable to afford these prices but are excited about vocal training in this studio, please contact John to discuss an individualized plan.
