Michael G. Brooklyn, NY

Subjects Taught

About Me

Michael is a rising star in contemporary and jazz vocal music. His rich tones and subtle phrasing of jazz standards, pop ballads and multiple voice arrangements have already earned him top honors (including three Downbeat Awards) and a loyal following of listeners. As both a performer and a teacher, Michael enjoys collaborating with all levels of musicians (especially first-timers) and strives to help every student grow in musicianship and love of their craft!
At an early age, Michael felt a powerful attraction to jazz music and was soon studying at Seattle's Roosevelt High School, one of the top jazz schools in the country. His musicianship and fresh interpretations of standards like "I'm Beginning to See The Light" and "Body and Soul" won him the "Best Male Vocalist" award at the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival two years in a row; in 2008, he was just one of four male vocalists in the country to be selected to perform in the exclusive Gibson/Baldwin Grammy Vocal Jazz Ensemble, where he was a featured Vocalist and Vocal Percussionist, performing at the 2007 Grammy Award Show and in some of L.A.'s top venues.
In 2009, Michael turned his attention to Big Band music, touring the USA and Canada as the Lead Male Vocalist with the Glenn Miller Orchestra, delighting audiences with his elegant interpretations of classics like "White Cliffs of Dover" and "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square."
As a scholarship student at the University of Miami's prestigious Frost School of Music, Michael had the opportunity in 2010 to work with legendary procure, Phil Ramone (Tony Bennett, Ray Charles, Natalie Cole, John Legend) when cast as a young Sinatra in his new musical "Lanza." He graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Studio Music and Jazz Voice. Michael is currently based out of New York City where he performs both as a soloist and in various groups including Choral Chameleon and Trouble & Bass.

*** Lesson Details ***
It is my goal as a teacher to provide an extremely comfortable and positive environment. As a performer, I know the joy and release that comes with using your voice, a part of your body, as your instrument. Singing is fun! I know from first hand experience that lessons with a new instructor can be daunting so I make sure to keep a very fun and light vibe going.
Every student is different, and after an introductory conversation I will craft a personalized lesson plan to suit your needs and goals. Are you a beginner who is just finding their voice? Have you performed here and there but really want to hone in on your instrument? Maybe you're an adult and have an audition coming up, or maybe you're only 5 years old and just want to explore the world of music! The diversity of people all united by a love of music is really amazing for me and something I look forward to every day!

About Me

In 1998, upon college graduation, I began teaching private vocal lessons. I have taught for two schools of music, First United Methodist Music School in Texarkana, Arkansas and Burbank Music Academy in Burbank, California. In 2007, I began offering vocal lessons online through Skype. My current home studio is located in Manhattan.

I have the honor of working with some amazing students in my studio including, American Idol finalist;Rachel Hale, Singer/Song writer, Sara Skinner: Actress Molly Quinn; Actor, John R Colley; Ark-La-Tex's country star Klancy Johnson; singer/actress;Tara Clem and many more.

I am dedicated to helping people explore their vocal talents and skills in the entertainment field. My focus centers on treating your entire body - not only your voice - as a tool for performance. This not only includes lessons for voice (speaking & singing) but career and life coaching.In performance often your body will want to work against itself. Your body become tense, you over think, and worry. My motivation is to help you move to a place where you can over come your insecurities and fears by giving you an understanding of vocal production and its connection to your body and mind. My desire is to lead you to being your best.

Here are some examples of how I can help: increasing vocal range, eliminating "breaks" in your range, supported sound, natural breathing techniques, body alignment, conquering performance anxiety, stage presence, song interpretation, college preparation, smart goal setting, increased creativity, and positive internal reprogramming.

I've been a member of the National Association of Teacher's of singing for 6 years and am also a member of Actors Equity, SAG-AFTRA, NARAS (the Grammy's) and a lifetime member for the music fraternity Sigma Alpha Iota. I hold 2 Fine Arts degrees in Music and Drama as well as a Bachelor of Applied Arts; Sciences in Administrative Leadership with an emphasis in Psychology.

*** Lesson Details ***
In your lesson, I start where you're at. I identify immediate problems and then put you on a regimen to move you toward your vocal best. I am a stern but encouraging teacher. I expect a vocalist to practice.

Whether a beginner or seasoned performer. My goal is to get your voice to a place of ease in production and to articulate your performance in a way to connect with your audience.
Each lesson is recorded and emailed so you can listen and practice. Practicing is imperative to building your vocal muscles and performance skills.

Here is a list of other benefits that I provide: ear training, finding your true voice - not just an imitation of your favorite vocalist, smart career goal setting, overcoming stage fright, audition/interview techniques, positive self-programming, finding your acting "type"career marketing strategies, how to work "where you're at", scene study, monologue preparation, and a building basic musical theatre audition book.

The following is available in my studio:
-an Mp3 of your warm-ups either on CD (you provide), flash drive (you supply) or a download via website,
-music track editing (includes cutting, tempo changes, key adjustments, etc. (I usually do music editing outside of a lesson.),
-stage choreography/blocking,
-microphone training,
-and studio recording training.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Yeti microphone, H4n Zoom recorder, Audio Technica AT 3035 microphone. 
-Music Editing Software: Pro-Tools, Cubase LX, Audacity, Garageband, Sony Sound Forge
-Video Editing Software: Final Cut, Sony Vegas, iMovieI
-I also utilize Sing & See in my studio for vocal analysis when needed.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I currently do not travel to homes.

*** Specialties ***
Along with the guidance and genius of Dallas-based vocal teacher and composer, Bill Bauer, I have developed a safe, powerful technique in the art of vocal production for all vocal genres. Some of which include supported belt singing and Bel Canto-style singing.

I am also a trained Opera singer and jazz vocalist and have trained in Vocal Pedagogy both in college as well as with the National Association of Teachers of Singing of which I am a full member.

I am a former Miss Louisiana and talent winner at Miss America. I have judged numerous local, state, and national pageants across the country.
