Introduction: I have been named among the best voice trainers in the country, working with beginners, advanced and professional singers, building technique and a 3-5 octave range in all my students. My students love their lessons and I enjoy seeing their voices grow quickly. These lessons build confidence and open up new worlds for each student. I also love helping my students perform and get paid for it!

Singing Lessons

I have been working with Gary for about 3-4 months. He is kind, punctual, and alters the sessions for what he thinks I need that week. He works on the muscles and figuring out how to make the best of a person’s voice. I’ve noticed an improvement in my voice and always look forward to my singing lessons!

Gary is incredible. His knowledge, personality and his teaching technique is really unparalleled. He makes you comfortable in your skin and teaches you to discover yourself. Besides that he teaches you how to sing, he actually makes you better as a person.

Singing Lessons

I started learning how to sing the beginning of this year. I met Gary early June, and he has helped me tremendously in the past 3 or so months I’ve known him. He helped expand my range past C5 as a tenor - a note one of my past teachers has told me I’d never be able to hit. My tone has also improved a lot too under the techniques he has taught me and I’ve learned a lot of other things about my voice too such as how to bridge the gap between head and chest voice. I’m glad I was able to find the right vocal instructor for me! Sometimes, you really gotta keep searching until you find the right guy for your voice! I look forward to improving even more under Gary’s teachings.

Thank you Kevin. It is a joy to teach you and it always blesses me when my students grow and as I hear this technique transform your voice into a beautiful instrument!

Very professional vocal training. It's real lucky to work with Gary. My son always enjoys the lesson time. Fun and joy. Highly valued & high commodity. Good teacher :)

Thank you Viga. Your son is very talented indeed. I look forward to our lessons each week and he is growing leaps and bounds. The vocal technique is increasing range, power and tone and he is often amazed at what his voice can do!

FAQs

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

    Lessons are $60 per hour or $40 per half hour. I require that the student bring a recording device to each lesson, record the lesson, and repeat the lesson each day. This ensures the fastest growth possible. The voice is made of muscles that must be trained and developed and strengthen and released. Prices in New York and LA for the same service are $150 per hour.

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

    I evaluate their voice in the first lesson and design a specific game plan to reach target goals. It is my job to listen to a student, identify the problems they are having, duplicate that in my own voice and then design exercises to address those problems. I can build a voice from the ground up, or rebuild a damaged voice, and set a student on a lifelong vocal growth process.

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

    I trained in New York City under a student of the great Cornelius Reed, the foremost voice teacher in the world while he was alive. He is also The author of the Reed trilogy which brought Belcanto back into vogue in America. I have now passed on that vocal technique to hundreds of students throughout my tenure.
