Justin Montigne

Justin Montigne offers vocal training to singers of all ages, ability levels, and voice types, with an emphasis on opera, art song, early music, and musical theater. Body awareness, breath, and communication are central tenets of Dr. Montigne’s vocal pedagogy and his own singing. Everyone has a voice worth developing in lessons, and most students find their singing skill and confidence increase dramatically in the first few months of training. Voice training can improve vocal ability in many areas of life, from public speaking, to interviews, to interpersonal communication. In 20 years of teaching, Justin's students have sung with Chanticleer, the San Francisco Symphony Chorus, Opera San Jose, Philharmonia Baroque, American Bach Soloists, Minnesota Opera, and many other companies. Former students are currently studying at Carnegie Mellon, Vanderbilt, San Francisco Conservatory, NYU, Berklee College of Music, USC, Oberlin, and other major conservatories and universities in this country and abroad.
