Gerald Martin Moore
Yale School of Music
Director, Yale Opera
” My passion for teaching voice is rooted in the desire to foster a healthy vocal technique, specifically tailored to each student, based on the solid foundation of the 19th century masters combined with the most current understanding of voice science and physiology. In the time-honored tradition of vocal pedagogy, it is rewarding to share knowledge I have gained listening and working closely with great singers performing at the highest level of achievement, and to impart and inspire that enthusiasm in the next generation of singers “.
