Your own personal Ph.D Professor of Music
Take lessons from a Ph. D of music! I've studied vocal performance for 15 years now, singing and teaching all styles. Aside from my performing experience, I've carefully studied the anatomy and physics of singing well, and how to get that knowledge across clearly in a one-on-one session. In these lessons, I guarantee that you will notice improvements quickly, no matter what style of music you want to sing.

Dr. Russell is a fantastic teacher. He is very patient, talented, and capable of teaching multiple styles of singing.

Dr Lance has been a great instructor, as an adult student he is teaching me to have very strong foundations and basics down. I am learning slowly but surely, it has been a very productive journey so far! Would definitely recommend!

Lance is great! Super kind and helpful. I wanted to take voice lessons to honor my grandma and he has been great at helping me improve my vocal quality. I like that he explains different aspects of how the vocal cords work and visualizing tricks to reach higher notes

Society for Music Theory
Aug 2012
The Society for Music Theory promotes the development of and engagement with music theory as a scholarly and pedagogical discipline. We construe this discipline broadly as embracing all approaches, from conceptual to practical, and all perspectives, including those of the scholar, listener, composer, performer, teacher, and student. The Society is committed to fostering diversity, exclusivity, and gender equity in the field.
Barbershop Harmony Society
Aug 2008
It’s music in a very pure form created with nothing but human voices coming together to create a rich and satisfying texture that is pleasing to the ears and invigorating to the soul. Barbershop allows you to find your voice and be a part of creating something that is greater than the sum of its parts.
