This was my first vocal lesson and it was the best experience. He taught me how to match pitches and he was very patient. He told me a lot of new things that I didn’t know about singing. I can’t wait until my next lesson.

This was my first introduction to singing lessons with Dr. David. David has inspired my overall confidence in one consult session. He has the ability to encourage not to look behind but forward, and to have fun with singing. David is passionate and loves what he does. I believe he can help me move forward in many ways (e.g. confidence building, stamina, useful advice and professional vocal education on how to sing properly but have FUN with it) Sing everyday…enjoy it. I highly recommend David, such an inspiration!

I am in my 50's, love to sing and never got around to getting professional training. David is a superb teacher. He is so motivational and energetic. He makes the lessons fun by contextualizing the exercises we do to sound sequences I am familiar with - Use in theater, movies, the stage.... We do both voice exercises and songs. After just a couple of lessons, my musical heritage is coming back to me, I am projecting my voice, and have so much confidence. Having the time of my life with these lessons and am looking forward to surprising a few folks when I burst into song whilst talking to them! David is a total gem !!

I met David for the first time. He is a pleasant person with whom to work. I was apprehensive but he took care of that. I haven’t had any formal training other than the classes i took from Richard Purvis when I was a boy at the Grace Cathedral School for boys. David took me from someone who lost their singing voice to someone who recovered his desire to sing again. David is calm and very professional. He inspired me to step up and take responsibility for my goals. The lesson was fun. He brought back, in one lesson, my voice and resolution to succeed. His manner of teaching is casual and he made me relax and make the training fun I am committed to training with David. You can’t find anyone better. His manner will encourage young people to look forward to classes and enjoy learning from him. He’s taken a 77 year old man and got him serious about changing his life. He allows me to live, at least, another 20 years. I now have something to wish look forward. I recommend anyone who wants to learn singing to take classes from David. He’s the best.

Details: 65 years or older • No, the student cannot read music • 2 - 4 yrs of formal training • Classical • 60 minutes • Remotely (phone or internet)

David is wonderful and made me feel at ease after years of not singing. He shows professionalism, passion for music and teaching. He made the lesson fun, challenging and different exercises to warm up. I am looking forward to continuing singing lessons with David.

FAQs

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

    The first session is always free and I can offer discount if the student wishes to pay for lessons in advance.

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

    New customers are always offered a free thirty minute session, in-person or online, to discuss their goals and vocal aspirations, as well as history and previous vocal and musical challenges.

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

    I hold a Doctorate in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy with over ten years experience teaching at the college level. I also have a twenty year professional career, and still perform regularly at such venues as Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall.
