Performing

I have been arranging a cappella music for various size groups in differing styles for 8 years. I've learned the ins and outs of competitive a cappella and how make the most of the individual voices in a group. Want more info? Click below!
I have 3 years of voice teaching experience and I am currently pursuing a Master's degree in Vocal Pedagogy at The Boston Conservatory at Berklee. I teach beatboxing both privately and in workshops. Find out more by clicking below!
You can find me performing with The Hexachords as a beatboxer in the greater Boston area and beyond. As a singer, I have performed professionally in operas and Christian church holidays, and semi-professionally in musicals. Click below to watch and listen to my performances.

Craig and Blacklight
Blacklight is all about taking a cappella music to new heights, pushing the boundaries of what can be done with the human voice. They perform high energy dance music, including original songs written by Craig, and split the set up with songs that have a chill vibe-y groove. Craig's beatboxing skills are used to their full potential and are always improving as he continues to work at his craft. His arrangements highlight the skills that already exist in the singers and are always pushing them to find new and exciting ways to use their voices. 

As a pedagogue, Craig's primary focus is ensuring the vocal health of his singers and every new sound Blacklight experiments with is workshopped to ensure vocal freedom and expression. 
See me in action
Blacklight does amazing things with vocal music and I am so excited to see how we grow. Check us out below performing my arrangement of Dua Lipa and Martin Garrix's "Scared To Be Lonely" and hear the fabulous lead vocals from The Vocal Company's Shannon McNulty. (Remix inspired by Gigamesh)
