Faculty: Theory, Composition & Orchestration


All teachers at OMS teach music theory to their private students, and it is also taught in the Music for Little Mozarts, the 4-6 year-olds. 

Leonard Higgs, B.Sc., Theory

LEONARD HIGGS, B.S., Baritone was a psychology major at Howard University and graduated from the former Federal City College (now the University of the District of Columbia). He studied voice with the famed coloratura and master teacher, Charlotte Wesley Holloman for more than 10 years. He is in demand throughout the Washington, D. C. area as a sacred soloist. He is presently a professional member of the Heritage Signature Chorale in Washington, D. C. under the baton of Stanley Thurston.Mr. Higgs performes arias of both opera and oratorio from Handel's Messiah, Rossini's Petite Messe Solonelle to name a couple, and played the role of Simon, the conjuror in Scott Joplin's opera "Treemonisha" with the Nevilla Ottley Singers, and Ned, the father in the same opera with the Municipal Opera of Baltimore. He sung the Priest in Carlos Gomes' opera, "Colombo" with the NOS. He had sung the role of King Melchior in Menotti's Christmas opera, "Amahl and the Night Visitors", and most recently sang King Balthazar in the Ottley Music School's production of that opera. He has also served as a choir director for several years, teaching the music and developing the voices of his youth and young adult choirs and has been a fine addition to the music voice faculty at OMS since 2003.
