Having  a career focused both on performance and education, he has taught singers that appear in roles with regional and international opera companies, musical theatre companies, and symphony orchestras. A dedicated mentor and technician, he's in in demand for Master Classes and workshops with emerging and professional artists, presented by Opera Companies and Universities around the US.

"My teaching is rooted in dissecting and building kinesthetic awareness, and leading singers toward a complete understanding of how mental intentions and physical actions impact sound. Efficient and stable breath mechanics lead to greater resonance, range, volume, and vocal freedom - which is empowering to singers of all genres. The end result is technical security and a voice that is truly their own.


Musical and dramatic coaching is a part of this study, weaving all these essential parts together to build a confident, whole-hearted, and generous performer. I'm open to working with motivated singers of all levels, from beginner to established professional, and have experience rehabilitating singers from vocal crisis.


I can also collaborate with you on piano and harpsichord in the studio, on recital programs, audition recordings, and help you fully prepare for a specific upcoming role or audition." - ZG
