I just completed my second week lesson with Gary on Monday, and let me just start off by saying how exceptional of a teacher he is! I had trouble in the past looking for a reliable teacher in this town who could not only give formal training but someone who not only had the experience but had patience in their teaching methods with beginner vocalists. Though I have experience in string instruments, I had absolute zero experience in vocals. I discovered within the first few minutes of my first lesson that vocal music is a whole different world entirely; It was one of those eye opener moments and you'll know when you have your first experience with him.
Gray sings along with you as he guides you down your unique vocal training, as he doesn't teach each student the same exact way. Upon your first lesson, he can analyses your strengths, weaknesses and then goes from there, strengthening you physical core before heading into learning actual music. He told me, "Humans were the first instrument; our voices came before the violin." and stressed that everyone can learn to sing. All it takes is time, dedication and most of all 'work'!
If your in doubt or can't seem to find a teacher to help build your strengths or repair your voice, Gary is the guy for you; Look no further! And best of all, he is affordable if you can't spend hundreds of dollars each week on a voice lesson! ~
