About Charles

I have played piano for over 50 years and have taught hundreds of students; from giving beginners a great foundation to coaching doctoral students. As a pit pianist, I have played over 1,500 shows on every level from High School to professional. As a composer l have written music for 7 shows including adaptations of 'Tom Sawyer' and 'Alice in Wonderland'.

As a music student I studied in Europe to be a conductor and as such have a cursory knowledge of every instrument in the orchestra. This has given me a complete working knowledge of music.

As a vocal coach, I've had hundreds of students during a 21-year career in children's theater including Sutton Foster, Celia Keenan-Bolger and David Burtka (husband of Neil Patrick Harris). I have also served as Musical and Vocal director for over 40 groups and as Vocal Director for over 1,500 shows.

I have an extensive historical memory and relate-ability to current music. My extensive and wide-ranging musical background including personal acquaintances with some of the 20th centuries most notable musicians.
