Simon L. , Voice Teacher , Dupage County
I have dedicated my adult life to a balanced career focusing on performance, teaching and choral conducting. All are equally important to me. As excited as I am about my recent engagements and future opportunities at regional and national opera companies and festivals, I am equally passionate regarding sharing the pedagogical skills I have learned from studying with major vocalist / coaches and pedagogues in the United States, Europe and Asia. I care about my students, and many of them have applied and been accepted at major Music Schools, Festivals and Apprentice Programs. This gives me great pleasure.
10 years experiences teaching wide range of ages (teens to 60s) and levels of student; strong background in
performing, conducting and organizing skill
Intensive professional performing experiences (Performed more than 15 opera major roles
with professional opera companies worldwide and appeared over 300 recitals, concerts.
