Introduction: Try taking lessons remotely! I can work over Zoom, Skype or Face Time! * Please note: I am ONLY taking serious and committed online students right now. And my only open slots are Mondays at 11am and 12pm Easter Time (US). Please do not contact me about any other times. Experienced and dedicated music teacher, offering lessons in voice, piano music theory, and songwriting. Comfortable in most styles, I work with students of all levels. I've had several students get into the voice programs at LaGuardia and other arts high schools in New York City, and have had a lot of success coaching band front men and women. A theater artist myself, I've also worked with lots of actors. And I'm a Thumbtack Top Pro! I love working one-on-one with talented and motivated students. Every person approaches music in a different way and I enjoy figuring out how each student thinks so I can tailor my approach to his or her learning style.

Singing Lessons

The lessons are very informative and help me to improve on a daily basis. He gives great visuals and it is easy to follow instructions. I now have a very different perspective of how to sing (technique, breathing, etc.). Even though I just started, my voice has greatly improved. Also my confidence has improved. I am comfortable to mess up, be off pitch, and make other mistakes because he made it comfortable to do so and explains how it is part of the process. Cannot wait for future lessons and see how far I can take my voice lessons.

I’ve been with Dave for a little over a month now and he’s done an amazing job at transforming me into a better artist week by week. Whether it’s taking the time with me to really nail something, or him pushing me out of my comfort zone he always has me in his best interests. I can not recommend him enough if you want to learn about your own voice and how to use it like a pro Dave is your guy.

Singing Lessons

Dave Hall is not only an exemplary vocal coach but has also become an inspiring friend. If you're looking for someone to listen to what you want while pushing you to your full potential - Dave is your guy. Since working with Dave, he has supplied me with invaluable tools that are now ingrained in my vocal arsenal. My vocal range has expanded and my technique is now strong thanks to him. I'm a touring musician in a rock band and before working with Dave, my voice would be strained by the third show. In gearing up for a summer long tour, I decided the best idea to fix my reoccurring vocal issues would be to hire a coach. With Dave's expertise and guidance, I successfully completed the four month long tour with ZERO vocal strain and accolades for a noticeable improvement in the strength and quality of my voice. I look forward to our weekly lessons to not only improve my voice but to see a friend I can trust who only wants the best for me. If you're looking for a vocal coach, please look no further. This coach will not only help you FIND your voice but he will also enrich your life.

Singing Lessons

Dave is lovely! I put out a request here I really wanted to take singing lessons to add to my tool box as an actor, and that I would love to sing in my native language, Arabic. Dave reached out, we had a phone call soon after, and our first free test lesson was the week after! I have been doing singing lessons with him since then for almost a year now (Feb 2019). We experimented between English and Arabic songs (since he is of Lebanese descent), and I have definitely seen an improvement in my vocals! I was a beginner and felt really nervous, but I really enjoy the classes. I would absolutely recommend Dave to anyone!!!

FAQs

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

    I charge based on a sliding scale. I have a preferred hourly rate but am always happy to work with a student's budget.

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

    When working with a new student I try to get to know where they're coming from: What musical knowledge do they already have? What are their fears about learning music? How do I make them comfortable?

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

    I have a Bachelor of Music in Composition from the Manhattan School of Music, and I've studied voice and piano extensively.
