Michael is an amazing instructor! I've always wanted to be a better singer. I've been working with Michael for four months, and I can ACTUALLY SING NOW! I still have a lot of work to do but I'm making progress every lesson. He has a thorough understanding of both the art and science of singing, well trained professional, and he's very flexible with meeting my weird schedule. Our lessons are FUN, I Definitely recommend!

Since I started lessons with Michael two months ago, I can already hear and feel the difference in my voice. Michael's really good at coming up with clever vocal exercises that pinpoint my weaknesses as a singer so I can work on them effectively. He's also great at explaining exactly what each exercise is meant to accomplish, demonstrating what they should sound like, and helping you diagnose how you could do them better. Sure, maybe it could be possible to learn how to sing well on your own. But having a teacher like Michael saves you an enormous amount of time and stress by helping you avoid blind alleys, and giving you hints that help you find good habits more quickly.

I started working with Michael a couple months ago, and I already notice a difference in my singing and my technique. Michael has a comprehensive knowledge of the voice mechanism and a wealth of tools to help address issues in vocal technique. In many of my lessons with him, I would come to him with an issue I was having, and he had just the right exercise or adjustment to help me fix it. On top of that, he's personable and a joy to work with. Highly recommend!

FAQs

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

    I provide a sliding scale based on the needs of the student. If more lessons are booked in advance and purchased in bulk, I can offer discounts.

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

    We will have an introductory lesson in which basic principles and concepts for our work will be laid out. I will assess the goals that you yourself want to achieve and determine how I can help you reach them.

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

    I have degrees from two of the most prestigious music schools in the world. I have also guest taught at major universities and have applied my technique in my own performing career which has taken me all over the world.
