This year’s guest instructor is Peter Lake. Lake is an international opera and musical theatre performer currently working on finishing his doctorate in vocal performance and pedagogy. Lake welcomes students of all levels of vocal experience and tailors his lessons and style of teaching to the individual needs and goals of each student. Lake works from the basis that everyone is capable of learning and thus his method works to instill intuitive muscle coordination and mental concentration to produce a technique that will feel natural to the singer. His ultimate goal in teaching singing is to help the singer communicate, to use technical training to allow the singer to reach their own goals, and to develop a strong love for music as one of the great joys in life.
