Where do I start?? He's patient, he's beyond knowledgeable, he's simply everything I could ask from a vocal coach. From the very first lesson he taught me things that I never even considered before when it came to singing. He really teaches you the absolute bare minimum of what you need to learn, but in a common sense, easy to understand way. It's been three months with him and I'm already making great progress. How do I know this? Because he also gives compliments where compliments are due. Easy 5/5

I would give Leandro a 6/5 if I could! I have been taking voice lessons with him for a few months now and to say they have been phenomenal would be an understatement. I have really felt and heard my voice evolve over this time and so have my friends and family. Leandro really puts the needs and wants of the student first and teaches musical techniques in an easy to understand manner. He is really flexible with the songs we work with and is fun to talk to! Working with him has given me confidence in my voice I never knew I had. I highly, highly recommend him for your voice and musical journey!

Working with Leandro has been simply amazing ! I came to him almost a year ago seeking a vocal coach who could help me develop my voice. He’s extremely patience, fun to work with, knowledgeable and truly cares about his students! Compared to a year ago I have noticed a big change in my voice. If you’re looking for a vocal coach who can truly improve your singing I strongly recommend Leandro !

A first class instructor with a big heart. Leandro really becomes your music partner and his experience in the industry is accomplished and extensive. As a singer who hasn't had lessons in decades, he met me at my level and every lesson, I feel my voice getting stronger and stronger. Thanks, Leandro!

I have been taking lessons with Leondro for several months now and I have nothing but good things to say. I could hear my voice improving even after the first lesson. He not only helps with my voice, but he helps me understand music conceptually. I have always been nervous about singing in front of people, but he immediately put me at ease and my confidence grows each lesson. Leondro is truly a great teacher.
