Singing Lessons

I've been taking lessons with Anna for four months now. She is an amazing teacher! I started without any singing experience and I've come a long way. Anna is a joy to work with and really skilled at pinpointing areas to improve on

Singing Lessons

I have worked with Craig at Michael Karl Studio over the past couple of months, and couldn't be happier with my voice/singing lessons. Craig is extremely effective, passionate, and reliable. He tailored a program to my goals: first half of lessons on vocal drills to develop my skills and habits; second half of lessons singing and breaking-down specific songs (e.g. House of the Rising Sun, Sitting on the Dock of the Bay, Free Fallin'). Craig exudes positivity, and he encouraged me to find "my voice."

Singing Lessons

My son was a little nervous about starting voice lessons. Once he spoke with Aaron he was completely comfortable! He looks forward to his lesson every week. You can tell Aaron loves what he does he takes personal interest in my sons voice and gives him excellent advice and confidence to work on things that are not in his comfort zone. My son has improved tremendously in just one month of lessons. It is not only the improvement but the excitement he feels each week. Aaron is AWESOME and I highly recommend him and Michael Karl Studios!!!!

My virtual voice lessons with Michael Karl Studio have been amazing! Michael is not only a wonderful singer and performer, but also a great teacher. I've been studying voice with Michael for 8 months now, and from our very first lesson, I've felt that I could trust in Michael to help me sing more healthily and develop more confidence in my voice. I've already noticed that I'm more comfortable singing at home - I'm applying the tools that Michael and I work on in our lessons, and I hear and feel a difference! In every lesson, he listens and reacts based on how my voice is that day and how I'm responding to the exercises. Michael always brings positive energy to our lessons and offers much-needed reminders for me to reconnect to the joy of singing which helps me feel heard, understood, and encouraged. I enthusiastically recommend working with Michael Karl Studio!

I had a wonderful time working with Anna. She is supportive, kind, and knowledgeable! I felt very cared for during my time at the studio, and I’ll miss taking lessons here!!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    At Michael Karl Studio, we combine the latest research in vocology and vocal science with an individualized approach — helping professional singers and beginners find real, tangible improvements in their voices. By using the foundations of vocal technique, and song repertoire, we help students get the most out of their voice. Our methodology is built around a personalized roadmap that helps vocalists achieve technical and artistic mastery. That's why the very first lesson that you book with us is about capturing your artistic profile: this includes baselining, goal setting, and targeting specific problem areas. In other words, our method stems from capturing the full picture - creating long-term solutions rather than short-term fixes.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have over 14 years' experience in classical vocal and acting training, coupled with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Musical Theatre and Voice from Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. I also hold a Certificate of Vocal Pedagogy from BAST.
