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

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."

I found Michael Karl studios on Thumbtack two months ago and have had weekly lessons with Maxel since. My initial experiences were already positive - when I sent in questions about voice lessons, I was responded to in under ten minutes and had two different people follow up with me in under 24 hours to make sure I had all questions answered/got connected with a voice coach that would be a good fit for what I was looking for. They were both personal and professional and I immediately felt at ease with them and this company. There are also multiple ways to save money on lessons/get discounts/have free lessons, which I get e-mailed about frequently. Personally I think the price is well worth the quality of services - but discounts are always very nice ;) Otherwise my experience has been with Maxel, which has been tremendously positive. As a vocal coach Maxel makes sure I have a full voice lesson experience every week - I see him for 30 minutes at a time and he makes sure to provide vocal education/warm-ups/tips where I'm singing the bulk of the time, which is a nice change from previous vocal coach experiences - I feel I've learned and developed my singing voice more with Maxel in two months than I had with other instructors that I saw for much longer. There have been schedule hiccups but even when that has happened, Maxel has been very prompt and flexible and always makes sure to work with me and my schedule. He has great time boundaries and if we have a late start he makes sure I have my full 30 minutes with him. He's very personable, knowledgeable, fun, and genuine and I can tell he cares about his students and what he does. Maxel also gives lots of positive affirmations and makes a point to acknowledge areas of progress/things I am doing well every lesson. I would recommend Maxel as well as Michael Karl Studios in a heartbeat to anyone that is looking for good quality vocal instruction with genuine people that value not only music but also their students.

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!!!!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

  • 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.
