Coaching and Workshops

“Robert is one of the most personable and knowledgeable people we’ve worked with. His ability to connect with young people, his enthusiasm for a cappella, and his flexibility make him an excellent choice for an adviser.  I can’t say enough wonderful things.  He will truly make your group BETTER.”

– Denise Childers, Director, LPHS Unplugged

Over the years I have had the pleasure of presenting workshops and working with groups all over the United States, as well as internationally in Canada and Singapore! Some workshops I have presented include:

  • A Cappella Arranging (Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced)
  • Vocal Percussion (Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced)
  • Movement as a Rehearsal Tool
  • Solo Delivery, and Connecting with an Audience
  • Set List Planning
  • Album Production and Visioning

Below is a video of my presentation on Vocal Percussion/Beatboxing as part of a series of lectures presented by the School of Music and the Arts (SOMA) in Singapore. As part of the series, I also presented a half-day intensive lecture on A Cappella Arranging, during which I facilitated a cooperative class arrangement.

Here is the promotional video that I did to advertise the workshop.

  • Planning a set for the ICCAs, or another vocal competition, and need a set of experienced outside ears to help maximize the impact of your music…
  • Looking to introduce your choral students to new possibilities in vocal music…
  • In search of new ideas or energy in your regular rehearsals…

I can help!
