About the author

James Walker

My name is James Walker, and I consider myself to be a true and profound music lover. I was one of the best students at Music Academy where I graduated and was one of the youngest to earn Ph.D. in music history. I have quite rich experience in music theory, piano playing, and singing, but at some moment in the past, I’ve focused all my interest onto vocal powers and choral singing. I am a co-founder and a co-director of several choirs, as well as tenor and countertenor in many performances. Several years ago, I decided to establish this vocal studio, work as a vocal trainer and help singers and other artists master their voice capabilities and talents. My studio cooperates with many theatres, including NYC theatre where I work as the vocal trainer of actors and performers.
