I've been in your shoes, and I won't pretend otherwise. You have things you can't sing, can't imagine singing, and can't seem to get the courage to try-- so do I. What other teachers don't often get is that it's not that simple. I needed a helping hand, now let me help you. Book a lesson today and I'll show you that whatever you're dreaming, you can sing-- guaranteed.
About Tristan N.

I am a person who has always had a secret longing for creating art. I looked at people of every field and wondered how it felt to be up there on that stage, or in front of that canvas painting those strokes. I kept these desires from anyone else out of shame, but I never lost the passion. I am here, today, because I made the choice to stop waiting for people to accept me. I went on my own way. A few years ago, I decided to take my first singing lesson, on a whim. After months and months of trying to understand it all on my own, I accepted my passion. Through thick and thin, I kept at it-- even when it was a dying spark... I realized I needed to teach. I realized that there were people out there, like me, who had struggled and wrestled with hopes and dreams. I always felt like my voice went unheard, when I talked about how hard it was to get on stage, or sing for a crowd-- or sing for anyone, for that matter. No one truly understood what it felt like to be in my shoes, but I feel like I understand the people who want to sing despite every voice or circumstance that says otherwise. I studied with a great opera singer-- my teachers have been some of the best in the world-- but I found that the person I had to study the most was myself. I think that is a singer's greatest challenge. I am a poet, a composer, a singer, and a performance artist, but first and foremost, I am myself... And every singer would do well to be themselves.

Really helpful and open minded. Took time to listen to and analyze the types of singing styles I wanted to learn and really helped me understand the techniques behind what made their vocals work. I don't really know a lot about music but Tristan helped me understand what I needed to know to learn consistently. Also took a lot of time to record things that I had a hard time understanding so I could go over them again during the week. Excellent teacher.

The advent and culmination of my studying and training has put me at the forefront of my own musical project, Summersong. This is my own personal artistic outlet, through which I express myself, but also challenge and make use of my vocal prowess. An upstarting project, but it will grow in repertoire in time.

My greatest help. My greatest friend and confidant, who took me in as a student and showed me the world I thought I knew completely, but didn't; the world of singing. His stringent, definitive, and masterful technique taught me how much I didn't know, and fed my lifelong curiosity regarding the foundational inner workings of it all. An opera singer of nearly 40 years, and a Grammy nominee, David was an intimidating force, but he showed me that small beginnings can grow to become master crafts. I aim to be like him every day.

My first teacher was and is one of the greatest mentors I've had along my journey-- always had a strange method to solve my problems; everything outside the box-- a solution for every style. It was a miracle that I met him. His teaching was the foundation of my knowledge and my methods which I still employ and continue to foster to this day. Were it not for him, I would likely not be the teacher or the singer that I now am.
