Ken Helman

Though having a long and varied career as a performer and teacher, it was always my custom to seek further study throughout my life. I discovered Brian Gill at NYU, and began a two year intensive program as a private student with him. Though my voice wasn’t presenting specific problems, Brian opened a whole new world for me in terms of tone and acoustic balance, passaggio and range, and even more ease and flexibility in my voice. I felt as a tenor, he knew and felt himself, what my instrument was actually feeling, sensing, and responding to, that was unique and very valuable. I have since gone on and employed his work with my own students with great success.
