Hi! I'm Charlie!

Musical theater has been my passion and my profession for over fifty years.

I’ve created a wide variety of original work
and trained several generations of artists for the musical stage.



I’m a composer and lyricist whose work has been heard throughout the U.S., as well as a music director, pianist and arranger.


I’m a stage director whose work has been seen on professional and university stages. I also have experience as a performer, writer and producer.


I taught at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia for over thirty years, and my book The SAVI Singing Actor documents my unique teaching methods.

I’m always looking forward to my next project.
