I bought a guitar!

I got tired of having to borrow a guitar just to check a few fingerings, so I bought an inexpensive guitar just for that purpose.  Who knew I would be playing it so much!  No doubt you will see new music for overtone singing with guitar soon.

Covid Update

I am still working.  Keep singing, and let me know if I can help.

SONGBOOK album now available

My new EP album SONGBOOK, is now available in my website store.  I want everyone to hear it, so I am offering it at a reduced price for a limited time.

SONGBOOK features an eclectic mix of musical styles, from art song to jazz ballad, all featuring my amazing polyphonic overtone singing.  In two of the songs, I actually bring out discrete overtones on vowels in the lyrics.

I am joined by Jerry Serrano on guitar and Isaac Rivera on percussion.

Group Singing with Overtones

One of my preferred publishers has expressed substantial interest in my new book “Group Singing with Overtones” and I have offered it to them for publication.  This will take some time, so I am making the book available to teachers and directors now (pdf only) so you can begin using the many lessons and activities provided.
