Introduction: Leandro Lacava is an accomplished vocal instructor and professional singer with expertise in several different styles of music, including opera, musical theater, rock, and Brazilian music. At home on both the musical theater and operatic stages, the tenor has performed roles ranging from Don Ramiro in Rossini’s Cenerentola to Schroeder in You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. A native of Brazil, he is fluent in Portuguese and English, speaks Italian, and has coached many students in singing diction in English, Italian, French, German, and Portuguese. He possesses a Masters degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Wyoming, and has worked as a vocal director/Adjunct Professor at the University Dulcina de Moraes in Brazil. His 16 years of teaching experience has included private lessons both at home and in several studios and music conservatories, as well as group lessons and master classes with students of all levels, from beginners to established professionals. Working in these varied environments was fundamental for the development of his teaching method. Each student is unique, and different approaches are needed to help different voices. It is his firm belief that anyone can learn healthy vocal technique. Mr. Lacava’s students in Brazil have performed in numerous professional productions including Miss Saigon, Crazy for You, The Lion King, Zorro, and Godspell, among others. His own professional performance experience in Europe, Brazil, and the U.S. in a great variety of shows, from plays to musical theater to classical opera, allowed him to work with countless professionals in the fields of theater, vocal and instrumental music, and dance, where he gained invaluable knowledge and experience that he hopes to pass on to his students as well. I have a passion for helping all my students develop their voices and their musical potential while having fun in the process. Every student is unique and I love helping them to find their true voices and to accomplish their goals.

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.

Leandro is a great vocal instructor! I started lessons with Leandro with a good foundation in music because of my years of playing piano but I had zero singing skills. In the months that I’ve been studying with Leandro I’ve felt my voice and singing ability greatly improve. Leandro knows a lot about proper technique and is very good at helping me identify what I need to improve on and what specific vocal exercises will help resolve any issues I’m having. I thoroughly enjoy my lessons with Leandro and would highly recommend him to anyone considering taking vocal lessons.

I can't say enough good about Leandro! He is such an excellent voice teacher. I had some initial qualms about doing lessons virtually, but I truly find that my singing improves with every lesson. Not only does he have an exceptional understanding of the mechanics of voice/ singing and the ability to recognize and hear what is happening with his students when they sing, but he is also able to communicate these things clearly with his students. Each lesson is so fun, informative, and in line with my singing goals.

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!
