Overview

I found out early on (age of 13) that I had a facility to teach and help friends understand music concepts. Some said it's a gift, others said it's vocation. To me it was just sharing what I loved. Since I had already decided to make music my career I made it a point to learn more and all I could in this field. Three degrees later (B.M /Berklee College of Music, B.M and M.M. /University of Miami) having studied under amazing Masters and years of performing, touring, producing and recording I have a lot to offer anyone, any age, any level when they choose me as their music teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
My students would describe our lessons as fun and enjoyable. That's because I want everyone to learn the basics of music in a relaxed and comfortable environment. I'm easy going and encouraging in character and make it a point to explain in the simplest manner the many concepts of music. I help students develop good habits of practice so they can improve their skills by giving them personal tips. Each student is unique and learns at a particular pace. I'm in tune with the student and move accordingly helping him/her navigate thru the music lesson while providing assistance towards reaching their specific goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano /keyboards/ protools in my studio with living room seating for parents. Coffee/water always complementary. Protools recording studio available for my student singers at discounted rates. Affordable and competitive rates for amateur-professional singers looking to record/produce a demo.

*** Travel Equipment ***
None. Currently not traveling to students homes. Lessons available at my studio only.

*** Specialties ***
Studied Jazz & Classical. Performed Pop, Rock, R&B and Latin musical styles.

Axel is incredibly friendly! I'm 23 and working on my singing voice, and stage performance. Axel's lessons are informative and appropriate to whatever skill level you're at (I'm a beginner). I was relaxed the moment I walked into his studio. I'm happy with the lessons.

I am really happy to have found Axel. I have no singing experience and recently joined a church choir. He was able to show me how to get the best out of my voice and build self confidence. His teaching style is well organized and after every class my voice sounded better to my ears than before.

Very happy student!

AMAZING!!!

Axel is an absolutely wonderful instructor. He has a wealth of knowledge to offer including classical training techniques, how to preserve one's singing voice, and how to maximize on your personal style. He is disciplined but also unafraid to allow you to take risks. Axel stresses artistic freedom and performance power. My vocal range as well as my breathing improved under his instruction. Most importantly, Axel is willing to go the extra mile for his students. He is very supportive and puts in an extraordinary amount of time and effort in order to help his students succeed. I highly recommend him!
