” Over the years I have taught many students including adults and kids – women and men, folks with guitars, rock singers in bars – dudes with gigs on boats, and altos with sore throats. Tenors with tattoos and Bob Marley’s nephew. That singer from Las Vegas – the one with the red dress. That emcee who entered the insanity plea (we won’t mention any names). A muse with the blues and opera singers with debuts. . .
So . .
Basses with an attitude – contraltos that are in the mood – don’t just stand there, you can blues it. I will teach you how to use it. Call me.
