William Stoker enjoyed teaching voice and would travel between San Francisco and Los Angeles during the 1940's through the 1970's. He was a highly sought after vocal teacher and coach who taught some of Hollywood's finest vocalist such as Johnny Mathis, Merv Griffin and Shirley Temple. With a full load of students in each city, he teamed up with a speech specialist and started to develop the Stoker Method for Popular Singing. For thirty years he refined his approach and when I started studying with him in 1981, he was finishing the 10th edition of his teaching method.
