John Punt

Seven Oaks Classical School (Ellettsville, Indiana)

Tenor John M. Punt received his Bachelor of Music in classical voice at Idaho State University and his Master of Music degree at the Jacobs School of Music. His choral work and solo studies have given him a repertoire of several hundred works in 38 languages, with performances as a featured soloist in Italy, Austria, Spain, Portugal, and the Vatican. His compositional works include dozens of art songs, vocal chamber music, and a commissioned opera based on the life of Lady Jane Grey. John lives in Bloomington, Indiana with his wife and two daughters, where he is in his fourth year of teaching at Seven Oaks Classical School.

"I love to teach because I love to share. I love to share in learning, in knowledge, and in experiences with others; teaching —especially teaching music —is one of the few things that celebrates all of these.”
