Had my second voice lesson with Maxel. He takes the singing lessons step by step. He encourages and makes sure I am hitting the low or high notes. He is very patient. Definitely recognize for someone who wants to be an aspiring musician.

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.

  • 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.
