I have been working with Michael for several months to help improve my vocal technique. Since I started, he has been nothing but supportive and knowledgeable. I have had people actually comment to me how they have heard a difference in my voice (without actually knowing I am taking lessons!) The best part for me is the confidence I have gained throughout my lessons. I highly recommend him for anyone looking to grow vocally!

Michael has gone above and beyond to help me reach my goals as a vocalist and I thoroughly enjoy each session! It's incredible for me to hear the transformation from my early recordings to now!

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

    Lessons are offered in 30, 45, and 60 minutes sessions. -30 Minutes = $30 -45 Minutes = $45 -60 Minutes = $60

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

    When working with new customers, I will start with an Introductory Lesson. Introductory lessons allow the student and teacher to get to know one another and determine if they are a good fit. We begin with conversing over basic information, likes, dislikes, and discussion of your goals and dreams. We then will move to some basic exercises that will allow me to get to know your voice, acting, or presentation skills.

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

    I graduated from the University of Akron with a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance. Outside of my school training, I have been coaching and teaching children and adults in singing and acting for 10+ years. I have also maintained a heavy involvement in personal performance in choral ensembles, theatre companies, and solo concerts.
