About this pro
Michael is an excellent voice instructor! Would highly recommend.Jul 24, 2016
Lessons from Michael are great. He is great about tweaking sessions to your personal needs to specifically target and prioritize what someone may be struggling with most at that time. He is very encouraging and his experience really shows in the lessons.Jul 15, 2016
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I do have a standard pricing. Of course, circumstances can shape the prices accordingly. (Whether I travel, or other circumstances.)
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like for the first lesson with a new student to be meant for grasping where the student is, and assessing the goals of the student. This is done through a conversation of the history of the student, and the intentions that the student has for their path. In the second lesson I take a more pro-active role in assessing the student, and discovering what kind of a plan best suits them. By the third lesson, I begin to implement the steps toward success.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Masters Degree in Music with an emphasis on Voice from North Park University (Chicago) and a Bachelor's Degree (same emphasis) from The University of Nevada Las Vegas. I have also joined The San Francisco Opera's Education program, and have gained from being able to join their Professional Developments. I have also taught with Chicago Opera Theater, East Bay Center For The Arts, Village Music School, and Casa Italia (Chicago).
