Five Questions with our Instructor Raymond

Five Questions with our instructor/coach Raymond in Virginia

What’s your name, what instrument or discipline do you teach and how long have you been teaching.
Raymond teaches voice, piano, guitar, conducting, and recorder.

I’ve been teaching in some form off and on for thirty-plus years. Levels are beginning to intermediate in voice and piano, and beginning in the other areas.

When did you know you wanted to be a musician?
From pre-school years. I grew up in a musical home as my dad was a church music director. We sang and played as a family. I also participated in choirs and musical activities in school.

CDS, shows, upcoming tours?
None now. I will be directing a local community chorus this year in Staunton, VA. We’ll be scheduling concerts in the autumn and spring.

Your number one practice tip
Just get started.

What are you listening to RIGHT NOW?
Christmas choral works, to get repertoire ideas.
