Singing should feel effortless. So why am I struggling?

Sometimes we force our voice to do what we want, and it blows up in our face. The high note didn’t happen, we ran out of breath, or our vibrato didn’t kick in. We forgot about technique, and our voice didn’t show up.

Other times our voice brings its fiercest A game, but we have an extra minute to obsess over the “perfect audition,” to envy our frenemy’s shoes, or to wonder who’s sitting in the audience that night and splat! We lose our focus and we’re a bug on the windshield.

A trainer doesn’t teach you how to sing. A trainer shows you how to be a singer.

That’s what it means to train.

I invest in each of my clients and do everything I can to see them succeed.

I can say, without a doubt, that I would not be where I am in my career without Ric. Each job in musical theater that I have had has been with his coaching and tools. I have been with him for six years now and recommend him to anybody and everybody looking for a voice trainer. He has been instrumental to my success on Broadway and beyond.
