William NeelySan Francisco
I've been teaching voice lessons privately for the last 15 years, At Santa Rosa J C, beginning voice classes as well as advanced, ranging in style from pop to musical theatre to classical. I have also taught diction for singers in Italian, French, German and English.
I have performed with many companies around the Bay Area, such as Cinnabar, Berkeley, Livermore, West Bay, North Bay and Pocket Opera, as well as Broadway-by-the-Bay and Santa Rosa Players, in such roles as the title role in Sweeney Todd, Scarpia, Don Giovanni, Almaviva, Jack Rance, Sharpless, Escamillo, Papageno, Don Quixote, and Petruchio. With Lamplighters, I've sung most of the baritone roles in the Gilbert and Sullivan repertoire, as well as Danilo (The Merry Widow) and Carl-Magnus (A Little Night Music).
