Joseph Michael Voice Studio
About this pro
...To sing well, a singer needs to be able to hear well. To teach someone to sing well, by default, implies that the teacher also needs to be able to hear well. Not just to that someones voice, but to the their individual needs. This, above all else is Joseph's skill. His patience and encouragement is noteworthy. ...And then to be able to guide that voice (perhaps in tiny steps, as was necessary with my skills as they first arrived) to a place where it ought to be heard; where I am happy to be heard. and such was my experience.Nov 25, 2014Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Although it's not complicated, there are two different rates for lessons. 1. The Basic Lesson. $90 for a 60 minute lesson. The fee includes studio rental or travel to your location. 2. The Full Lesson. $115 for a 60 minute lesson. The fee includes studio rental or travel to your location AND a skilled accompanist for the second half of the lesson. (*Subject to accompanists' availability.) I work with highly skilled professional pianists who regularly play for coachings, auditions, and performances around NYC.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I regularly attend voice science conferences and symposiums, as well as bi-monthly meetings with top NYC laryngologists and speech-language pathologists discussing recent cases they've treated.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I was unhappy with my current job at the time and wanted to get back into the arts. When I thought really hard about what I was good at, teaching was the obvious answer. So I went back to school to get trained in voice science and vocal pedagogy.
