“For more than a decade, I’ve listened to Tim Bruneau performing music ranging from Handel arias to jazz standards by Duke Ellington; from French art songs to musical theater gems by Rodgers & Hammerstein. The joy of his gift is that, no matter what he sings, his voice sounds at home, he backs it with solid musicianship at the piano and the message is always from the heart.”

Vocal Instruction

I’ve been a voice teacher for more than twenty years, and I’m proud of the fact that I have a number of students who’ve gone on to successful performing careers in opera, concert music and musical theater.

  I’m even more proud, however, of the fact that I’ve helped numerous aspiring singers, young and old, to develop the confidence to sing from the heart, with a physically healthy, breath-based technique.  Please, look below to read comments made in regard to my teaching.

“What you’re doing for these students  is so important!  It gives them such great focus and discipline in their lives, and it keeps their hearts and minds open to new things.  It was great fun singing with you, too.”

Frederica von Stade, Mezzo-Soprano
International Opera Singer

“ If it hadn’t been for the time I spent with you working on my voice, the past four years would have been truly empty.  Thanks for giving me the courage to be who I really am and the confidence to let other people hear my truth as I sing.”

Jessica Halliburton, Alto
Theater Major, Smith College

“Not only do his students sing with beautiful tone and excellent intonation, they also sing with an emotional intention that is almost never found in young singers.  That, to me, is a sign of great teaching.”

Vance George, Conductor
San Francisco Symphony Chorale

 "As I stood backstage waiting for my entrance, I listened to Tim's students and found myself completely impressed by, not only the quality of the singing, but also the depth and variety of the music being performed.  He has obviously created a terrific vocal program for his students."

Rod Gilfry, Baritone
International Opera Singer
