Rick hosted a master class with our a cappella group and it was excellent! Thanks for your help, Rick!
Yup, these are my clients.

I forgot to mention it when the tracklist was first announced, but now that it is finally available for download/streaming on your favorite digital music platform... I’m so honored to have my mix of “Rise Up” by Osa Vocal Rush featured as the OPENING TRACK on the 2018 edition of BOHSA (Best of High School A Cappella)! Their entire album was an absolute joy to work on, so it’s great to see it receive some much-deserved recognition!

Hey college a cappella groups! Did you all see this contest that was posted recently? In honor of the contest, and to show my support for the It's On Us campaign, I am running a very special promotion.

This song has become an anthem to support survivors…

Just wrapped up a phenomenal Skype masterclass with Brandeis No Singer Clef Behind! Unfortunately my plans to be there in person changed, but it was a pleasure to work with them and hear them grow musically over the course of an hour and a half. I can't wait to work with them again, hopefully in person!

Is your group looking for some feedback on your set, or just want to learn more about how you can achieve your goals in the best way possible? I'd love to work with you, whether live or over Skype! Shoot me an email at and let's talk!

Best of luck to my clients RIT Encore as they compete in the ICCA Quarterfinals at Syracuse University! Break a leg, girls!

I'm so excited to be teaching alongside my close friends and incomparable colleagues this weekend as I make my first trip to St. Louis!

Just think about what it would be like to work closely with this core team of ... individuals in a few days!

And if that's not enough, imagine a showcase perfor...mance featuring *nine amazing groups*: After Dark, the Amateurs, Missouri State Beartones, Beyond All Reason (Saint Louis University), DePaul Women's a Cappella (DWaC), Mosaic Whispers, Staam, The Stereotypes, and The Xtension Chords!

And if _that's_ not enough ... then: costume party?

Are you making a BOCA or BOHSA submission? Please be sure to follow the guidelines on the application page. Label each track with your group and school name as ...the artist name (not the original artist you are covering!) and with the song name as the track name (not "Track 1, Track 2," etc). Then put all the files into a folder labeled with your group and school name (not "My BOCA Submission" or "Album Name"), ZIP it up, and then upload that one file! The point is, we should have ONE click to download a folder that is labeled with your group name, and the tracks inside it are also properly labeled with the song name and your group name! This is super important with thousands and thousands of tracks coming in at once. Thank you!
