Mr. Alan teaches voice because every person has a unique voice and he wants to improve their ability to sing more beautifully and share more expressively. His goal for each student is that they feel valued in the classroom and confident in performances.
At the Wheaton Yamaha Music School, Mr. Alan teaches a group class called Songbird Singers, where boys and girls learn to sing with and from one another. His private students have gone on to study voice and musical theater at major universities and conservatories.
