About Alfredo Murillo
Get to know Alfredo Murillo
Alfredo has been singing since he was four years old and playing the piano since he was eight years old. He began teaching piano at the age of 13 under the direction of his teacher Claude Herndon, who was a master teacher and a student of Tobias Matthay, the pedagogue from London known for having armies of teachers and concert pianists come from his teaching studio. Alfredo's college work has been primarily choral, but he gives the biggest credit for his love for the piano to his professor Dr. Stefan Bardas, who, though he was a student in a direct line to Beethoven and Haydn, also loved to play modern music, just like Alfredo. Alfredo began teaching voice at the age of 23. Alfredo says he had so many great and wonderful teachers of voice and vocal pedagogy but he gives the biggest credit to Dr. Jerry Gordon of Baylor University, a student of Berton Coffin, who studied the harmonics of vocal sounds from a scientific perspective. Dr. Gordon, he says, helped him appreciate both the art and the science of vocal performance and pedagogy. Alfredo enjoys singing and teaching most every style of music from classic to rock.
