Michael I.

Bronx, NY

About Michael

Michael is an artist/songwriter with a broad background of
experience from live performances and studio work across the US and
Europe. He has sung for many labels, publishers, and on jingles. As a
songwriter, he has songs recorded internationally by other artists and
in film. He has a Bachelors of Music in Commercial Vocal Performance
from Belmont University (Nashville, TN). As a vocal instructor, he held
a Masterclass of commercial Voice for the Royal Academy of Music in
London in. Michael works with singers of all levels from beginners to professionals.

*** Lesson Details ***
Michae
l covers all modern styles of music; pop, soul, jazz,
r&b, country, rock, and on and on. Michael works with all levels
of singers, from beginners to professionals, who want to work on
specific areas.

Michael will help you improve your...

Technique- We will help you improve breathing, phrasing, improving tone, projection and develop range.

Artistry- Some singers already have a sense of "who they are" and
have found their "sound" as artists, and others need help refining it.
We'll look at what songs are great for you, (maybe you write your own)
how to style songs and make them your own and even experiment with
different genres.

Performance skills- It's one thing to sing in a room one on one
with a vocal instructor and quite another to be onstage with an
audience with all eyes on you as you stand in front of the mic. How do
you connect with your audience? How do you handle nerves? How do you
talk between songs? Some of these things are learned best from
experience. Most singers are working on their voice because they want
to perform. Michael will provide opportunities for performance
experience for each artist when each individual is ready.

Be an Intelligent singer- Learn how to be ready for an audition.
How to communicate with a band /accompanists. How to know what keys you
need your songs in. Learn about singing harmonies/backing vocals. Learn
about recording vocals in the studio.

This is what one new student had to say about their first lesson with Michael...

"I had SO much fun
this past Sunday, Michael. I already feel like I learned a great deal. You are
such a fun and easy going teacher. Can't wait for the next one. Thanks!"

Michael has been a savior for me, both in terms of expanding my vocal capacity and helping me develop my artistry and songwriting! He is encouraging, kind, fun, motivating and professional. He has truly been a caring teacher, mentor, and guide for me as I move forward in my music career, and has gone above and beyond his job as a vocal coach, taking the time and energy to invest in understanding my artistic vision, and helping me articulate and execute each step along the way. I would recommend him to anyone looking for guidance in a talented vocal coach and all around professional music mentor!Thank you Michael!

Michael is the best! Right from the start he picked up on the weak areas of my voice and we've been working on it since. He goes through the exercises such that I'm singing the way I wanted without even thinking about it. And he doesn't miss a thing. If I miss a note he's right there having me do it over again until I get it right.

He also explained in detail what the problem areas were and how to fix them. Describing with words how to use the human voice is no easy task, but he knows exactly how to get the point across.

I was originally pessimistic about online lessons, but I thought I'd try it since I couldn't find anyone with credentials and experience like Michael's in Atlanta for less than a gajillion an hour. I was pleasantly surprised. I can sing in the comfort of my own home, and it's just like he's right there with me.

Thanks Michael!

Improving every day w/ Michael!

Michael is amazing! It is my first time doing a Skype lesson on Take Lessons, and it exceeded all expectations.

This is about the seventh time I've worked with him, and I see progress every lesson with the his vocal technique. He usually does a vocal warm up the first part of the lesson and then we go over a song of my or his choosing depending on what my goal was. When I was working on performing the Star Spangled Banner, he helped me become comfortable line by line and tailored each phrase to my vocal range. He is a 100% effort teacher, putting all of his passion into the lesson. You can tell that he loves what he does, from the patience and willingness to complete the task at hand even if it is over the allotted time, to the extra tracks he records and sends to me so I can practice on my own during the week. I appreciate his sincere and honest constructive criticism and I look forward to working with him in the future.

As far as logistics goes, not counting the times when Skype skipped a few seconds of speech, working with Michael has been seamless. He is very professional yet very down to earth. He is very flexible with the times of the lessons and is easy to get in contact with if there is an issue with the schedule. I recommend a Skype lesson to anyone not only because of the convenience, but also the range of expertise you can get. Michael lives in Brooklyn - and there is no way I could have worked with him living in San Diego before this! Thus, the teaching environment is a 4/5 simply because of errors of technology not by fault of the teacher.

Guadalupe P.

New York, NY

About Guadalupe

Professional classically trained singer, Master in Music (Performance Practice) with more than 10 years of all-ages teaching experience and vocal pedagogy studies.

Lyric mezzo-soprano Guadalupe P., a native of Mexico City, has performed internationally on both concert and opera stages. With the Cedros, Arteus and Bellas Artes Chamber Orchestras in Mexico City she has been a soloist in Vivaldi´s Gloria, Pergolesi's Stabat Mater, Mozart's Requiem, Coronation Mass, and Missa Brevis, and Josep Gaz’s Letanías. In New York City, she created the title roles in La Llorona by Hector Armienta and th
e short film Maya´s Ark by David Wolfson, both international premiers. She was a featured artist at the Inaugural Gala Concert of the Union City, NJ Performing Arts Center and she sang a concert of arias and duets from zarzuelas, a form she champions, at Merkin Concert Hall. She has also been a soloist with the New York Virtuoso Singers, performing the John Corigliano song Forever Young in a concert of music by Corigliano and Mark Adamo, prepared with the assistance of the composers, and has performed in Denmark and Sweden as a soloist with the same ensemble. Other favorite opera roles include Charlotte (Werther), Ottavia (L'incoronazione di Poppea), Romeo (I Capuleti e i Montecchi), Annio (La clemenza di Tito), Proserpina, Speranza and Ninfa (Orfeo), Augusta (The Ballad of Baby Doe) and Cherubino (Le nozze di Figaro).

One of Guadalupe's passions is for the performance of works of great artistic value by composers that through the years, for reasons of fashion or accident have been ignored or forgotten. The American Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Leon Botstein is devoted to that cause, and for five consecutive years (2009-2013) at the Bard Summerscape festival, with Botstein conducting and the ASO in the pit, she has been part of the ensemble the New York Times has characterized as “simply exceptional,” in fully-staged productions of Les Huguenots by Giacomo Meyerbeer, Der Ferne Klang by Franz Schreker, Die Liebe der Danae by Richard Strauss, Le roi malgré lui by Emmanuel Chabrier and the Oresteia by Sergei Taneyev.

Guadalupe is also an ardent educator, with a teaching method based on the technique and exercises developed by David Jones, who is also her teacher. She has been involved with musical and vocal training in many different venues, developing and teaching vocal technique seminars and private lessons to more than 50 individual students in Mexico City, at institutions including the National University School of Music and the National Superior Conservatory of Music. She has also served as a vocal coach and/or conductor for multiple children's choruses, including for the Children´s Chorus of Tepozotlán, Mexico, at Trinity Wall Street in Manhattan and at Grace Theatre in Union City, New Jersey. She is continually looking for ways to develop her pedagogical skills as an integral part of her professional singing career.

Guadalupe has been the recipient of scholarships and grants from the Mexican Fine Arts Institute (Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes) and the Mexican National Institute for Culture and the Arts (FONCA), including the Award “Creadores Escenicos” in 2012. She won first prize in the fifteenth annual Francisco Araiza Voice Competition in Mexico City, was a finalist in the International Competition L'Orfeo in Verona, Italy and semifinalist in the tenth Julián Gayarre International Competition in Pamplona, Spain. She also performed as a semifinalist in the thirty-seventh Lyndon Woodside International Solo Competition of the Oratorio Society of New York.

*** Lesson Details ***
Develop and improve your vocal technique.
Get a bigger sound and wider, fuller range through specific exercises for your voice type.
All styles and levels welcome.

This approach to singing will allow you to comfortably and confidently express yourself musically.

When it comes to private lessons, I adjust to different vocal needs and personalities. Some people need to have fun in the process, some people are more serious . Some people focus and understand music and exercises easily. Some others will need more patience, further explanation, graphic examples and even games. I will do what it takes for someone to get things right and I won't be condescendant, but I'll always be respectful and will recognize and point out every little achievement and step forward. Not only for encouragement proposes, but also for people to realize for themselves what's well done and what path to follow to become better and more independent after every lesson. I like using images and analogies to help the sound and the music happen, but these will be always backed up with objective knowledge on the subject. I believe that everybody (children and adults) is able to understand and achieve a challenge, even though every person might need a different way to get there. I also think that this can be accomplished on the basis of respect by approaching one another in a friendly and why not, fun way too.

I have offered workshops at the Fine Arts Institute in Mexico City with over 50 privet voice students from the music and theatre fields. I have also taught at Greenwich Music House and Third Street Music School in NYC, and I have taught privately in NY for over 6 years. Both, beginners and advanced students show great improvement through the lessons.
I'm currently teaching voice and choral conducting to a group of 60 children 7 to 15 years old at Union City Grace Academy.
I previously coached the adult chorus at the Croatian Church of Saint Cyril & Methodlus located in Times Square, New York, and several children choruses in Mexico as well as performed seminars in vocal technique and its anatomy at institutions such as Fine Arts School of Music, National School of Music and Children's Chorus of Estado de Mexico.

Also available:
Sight Singing lessons for singers

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, full keyboard

*** Travel Equipment ***
Piano or full keyboard needed at students' places

*** Specialties ***
My specialty is Vocal Technique. I approach the understanding of a healthy and advantageous use of the voice from the basic anatomy functions that influence directly the production of the voice. I know a great number of exercises that will put this in practice and reach the utmost beauty and flexibility of each voice depending on individual needs and body disposition.
I also have a life time experience on music theory, especially to start and/or develop sight reading skills for singers. Other instrumentalists welcome too.

Excellent instructor with an impeccable understanding of vocal technique.

After a ten-year hiatus, I decided to take vocal lessons again. I am amazed at my improvement after just three lessons. Guadalupe is patient, understanding, and very knowledgeable when it comes to vocal technique and how to execute it properly. She can teach vocalists of various styles and backgrounds with great ease because she truly understands the physiological, articulatory, and functional properties of the voice. Guadalupe also has great ears. She suggested I see a throat doctor because a few minutes into my first lesson, she heard what she thought was slight vocal information. The following week her suspicions were medically confirmed and now I am getting the proper course of treatment to eliminate this condition. I am very lucky to have her on my side as I get my voice ready for conservatory level study.

Adrian B.

New York, NY

About Adrian

Music has played a big role in my life ever since I was 4 and heard The Beatles' "A Hard Day's Night." From that point on, I committed myself towards a life in music, soon after beginning lessons on classical guitar. Through high school I studied classical and jazz guitar at Philadelphia's esteemed Settlement Music School, and I subsequently attended New York University as a jazz studies major in both guitar and composition for a bachelors and masters degree.

As a teacher, I love to pair my academic knowledge of music with my decades of experience listening to and playing popular music ra
nging from rock and funk to bluegrass and hip hop. I've performed in settings ranging from jazz clubs in Italy, to theater in New York, and rock clubs in Philadelphia. In my lessons I like to bring that diverse experience to create a curriculum that compliments the interests of the student.

*** Lesson Details ***
In a private lesson setting I like to say, "What you put in is what you'll get out." Students who show up having practiced a lot, who are eager to dive in depth into a subject, will grow immensely in a short amount of time. Those who are interested in practicing guitar as a casual activity also have plenty to gain, and I try to push my students in accordance with their interest level.

As a teacher, I like to support my students' personal ambitions on the instrument and with music on the whole, drawing on a wide range of materials. My goal is to put the proper resources in front of my students and ask them questions that will push them to discover the elements of music they knew they were looking for and some they didn't.

Every student has personal goal, and I like to draw on my diverse background in music to help each of mine achieve theirs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Common space seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my students to have an instrument, paper, and a pencil. I can bring a music stand if necessary.

*** Specialties ***
I have been playing various styles of guitar, from classical to jazz to rock and beyond, for most of my life, so I feel comfortable showing all students the style they are most interested in.

Fun and Inspiring

Adrian's teaching style has helped me to understand the music pieces in an intuitive way. His ability to breakdown a complex concept into simple ones makes the learning fun and natural. Adrain makes the lessons interesting by discussing the music piece in length and also by sharing the music history behind it. He lets the student decide the pace of learning, but at the same time nudges him to take the next step. I will recommend Adrian to anyone who is interested in learning music.

I would highly recommend Adrian.

Adrian's passion for music really comes through in his lessons, always making lessons both informative and fun. Having no prior experience with the guitar before taking lessons from Adrian, he really catered to my strengths and passion points to find a teaching method that suited me well. It wasn't long before I was able to play a song and all the while, in addition to learning the very basics, Adrian also tuned into music theory and songwriting, which gave our lessons great depth. Additionally, Adrian was always very accommodating with my hectic schedule. I highly recommend Adrian to anyone seeking to begin or advance their guitar skills.

I had Adrian as a teacher in group lessons and was always impressed by his ability to connect with each student on a personal level. Adrian is helpful and understanding in his teaching and extremely talented to boot. It was always a treat to see him demonstrate and he always made the students feel like he was equally happy to be there.

Matt L.

Brooklyn, NY

About Matt

Matt has enjoyed working and teaching as a professional musician for at least 15+ years. He began studying music and playing the saxophone at age 11. He currently lives and works in the New York City area after moving there from Philadelphia in early 2001, after graduating from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia in 1999 with a Bachelors in Music.

Throughout his musical career, Matt has performed and worked in a variety of capacities including as a composer and recording studio engineer. His main area of expertise is performing as a jazz saxophonist on alto, tenor, and soprano saxoph
ones, and he regularly plays throughout New York City in restaurants and jazz clubs.

Matt's area of expertise in teaching is beginner to advanced studies on the saxophone, beginner to intermediate studies on the flute and the clarinet, music theory, and jazz improvisation for any instrument. Whether he is teaching saxophone, flute, or clarinet, his teaching approach places emphasis on giving the student an in depth understanding of his or her instrument. He puts the utmost importance on explaining advanced concepts in the simplest of terms in order to insure that the student fully comprehends the objectives of each lesson. Such concepts that he covers regularly and places importance on are sight-reading, ear-training, and creativity.

As a regularly performing musician in New York City, Matt can be seen every Sunday night at Ba'sik (a new and very popular bar in Williamsburg Brooklyn) where he leads the open jazz jam session. A few of his adult students have even been able to reach a level in jazz improvisation that they've been able to come out and sit in with the band.

In addition to teaching woodwind instruments and jazz improvisation, Matt also has experience teaching Sibelius music writing software, and audio engineering with Pro-tools LE and Logic Pro.

PLEASE NOTE: Because the NYC area is very different geographically from other parts of the country, especially in terms of transportation, I may appear outside of your area in terms of where I am available to travel. If you are very interested in taking lessons with me, but you are outside of my travel zone, please feel free to follow up with a Takelessons counselor and have them contact me personally to see if we might make an exception. I am available to travel to virtually all areas of Queens, Brooklyn, and Manhattan as well as Jersey City and Hoboken. if my location in Williamsburg Brooklyn is not convenient for you, and you are unable to have lessons in your home, then there is also an option where I can most likely find a very affordable teaching studio in an area that is more convenient for you that we may rent by the hour and split the cost for your lesson.

*** Lesson Details ***
Matt believes that any student, regardless of age or experience level, learns best when engaged in an activity that he or she understands and enjoys. Part of his success as a teacher can be attributed to his willingness to take into account every student's particular musical interests and strengths, and in tern, he teaches directly to those areas. For instance, in the initial stages of developing a student and teacher relationship, Matt requests that the student compile a "wish list" of approximately ten pieces of music that he or she would like to be able to play. This list may include pieces in such genres as classical, jazz, and popular music, just to name a few. It is through this list that the student can begin almost immediately learning exactly what he or she likes, and by default, Matt can then teach the student all of the technical components needed to perform on his or her instrument, as well as determine the specific areas where the student needs to receive more focused instruction. More importantly, this "thinking outside of the box," customized approach provides a fun atmosphere and enables the student to enjoy learning the art of playing music by not being solely dependent on instructional booklets which many students, regardless of age and experience, find boring and tedious.

Chelsea aside from her amazing operatic voice, happens to be an excellent teacher. She has studied and trained with some of the top names in the business and has been able to incorporate these various professional coaching techniques into her own style. Chelsea has performed, soloed and auditioned and knows the drill. She is patient and offers excellent and professional guidance.
