After graduation he continued his musical studies in voice with Mr. Richard Chapline and is currently a student of Metropolitan Opera baritone Theodore Lambrinos. Larry continues to teach voice privately. He is also an adjunct faculty member of the Communications Department of Luzerne County Community College.
