Nick coached my daughter, Ann, through her South Bay Teen Idol Competition, in which she was a finalist. Ann was competing against singers with more years of experience, but the superior quality of Nick's instruction enabled her to be competitive.

Private Classical Voice Teacher

I am currently pursuing my doctoral degree at the Eastman School of Music in vocal performance and literature. I believe in empowering my students so that they can sing in all styles of music that interest them with ease and freedom. Good singing is good singing and I am comfortable teaching classical, musical theater, pop, jazz, country etc. I like to set up my students with a strong foundation for singing so that they can practice efficiently and overcome vocal obstacles without my instruction.

About Michael

Hello everyone, I am Michael - I am currently in school at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY pursuing my doctoral degree in vocal performance and literature. I have sung all over the world in operas, musicals and with professional choirs. I enjoy teaching all levels of singing and love to inspire my students to reach their full potential. Singing should be fun and it can become even more exciting when the fundamentals start to fall into place. I am a casual but professional teacher and like to tailor my teaching to each one of my students. I like to make singing a very concrete and sensation based learning experience so students can rely on more than just their ears to guide themselves. Good singing is good singing, period - any genre ,any style... it all stems from the basics and setting up a strong foundation on which t

o build the voice.

American baritone Michael most recently performed the role of Lieutenant Audebert in Silent Night by Kevin Puts with Buffalo Opera in New York. Other recent credits include: Sam in Trouble in Tahiti by Leonard Bernstein at the Aspen Opera Center, Marcello in La Boheme by Puccini in San Diego, CA and Tom in Gershiwin’s, Blue Monday with Opera de Tijuana in Mexico. Michael will return to the Aspen Opera Center this summer to sing Frederick Egerman in Sondheim’s A Little Night Music. Most recently on the concert stage he was the baritone soloist for the Monteverdi Vespro della Beata Vergine at the Cathedral of the Madeleine in Salt Lake City under the direction of Dr. Craig Jessop and Haydn’s Seasons with the Eastman Philharmonia in Rochester, NY. In 2016 Michael received the second-place award in the Palm Springs Opera Guild Rossini Competition adjudicated by the famous Rossini tenor, Rockwell Blake. Michael is currently pursuing a doctorate in music performance and literature at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY where in 2019 will sing the title role in Mozart’s Don Giovanni.

Great teacher - funny, patient and understanding. I look forward to more lessons with Michael in the future!

Elizabeth
I started lessons with Michael having done both contemporary voice and years of choir. But prior to training with Michael, I'd never really been coached as to how to properly sing in a classical style. He's allowed me to find an entire element of my voice I didn't know I had and made it incredibly straightforward to progress. I now absolutely love singing in a way I didn't previously think I would.

Michael is knowledgeable, funny, and thoughtful. I am a wind instrumentalist, and Michael tailored voice lessons to discuss topics specifically related to my areas of experience. I would highly recommend Michael for voice lessons!

I've been teaching singing for 6 years and my students have gone on to improve their singing, and become more confident in their daily lives. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to apply aspects of a healthy singing technique to your favorite songs, and as time goes on you'll be able to sing more easily and efficiently. I specialize in all styles of singing. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Lauren

Hi, there! My name is Lauren and I can't wait to hear you sing and play! I've been teaching private lessons since 2009 and have loved helping my students sing with a healthy technique and increase their self confidence. I am currently an opera student of the world renowned vocal pedagogue, Manny Perez. I went to Shepherd University and The Longy School of Music and earned a BA degree in Music and an MM degree and GPD in Opera . I'm a fun and down to earth person, and my teaching style is based in proper technique, as well as helping you to find what works for you with a personalized lesson plan. I look forward to helping you reach your goals and full potential!

Studio has a baby grand piano, and an upright piano, several music stands, and some varied repertoire for use. It also has a nice seating area for parents that wish to observe

lessons.

Piano beginner repertoire for children and teens: John Thompson's Easiest Piano Course and the Piano Adventures series. Supplemental music also used to aid in development

Older teen and adult beginner repertoire: Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course. Supplemental music also used to aid in development.

Voice repertoire, will be tailored to each individual student but I recommend the 24 Italian Songs and Arias book, as well as the Teen's Musical Theatre Collection or Kids Broadway Collection for beginners.

Private Classical Voice Teacher

With 10 years of training and experience I am able to help students reach their potential, no matter what level they start at. I have received training from Nina Yelisheva, Marcia Swanson and Lucy Davis among others.
I am trained in classical, musical theatre and jazz singing. From the age of 14 I have been trained through a groundbreaking Italian voice technique that will help students expand their vocal range, gain confidence in their singing abilities and learn to control their voice.

About Artem

Hello dear students! My name is Artem and I have been playing violin since I was 4 years old and am a freelance musician, composer and pedagogue.
I am passionate about teaching because I believe education and willingness to learn is an extremely important factor for personal development and success.
I was born and raised in Saint Petersburg, Russia and underwent intensive training in voice, violin, composition and piano. After winning the Frieburg Intenational Violin Competition in 2010, I was offered a full scholarship to study music at Dalhousie University at the age of sixteen. After moving to Canada I went through a 9-month intensive english learning program, so I know first hand how difficult it can be to learn a new language. This experience helped me understand the struggles that any ESL student goes through and discover new way

s to teach Russian and English to others.
I am excited to get to know you and share my knowledge with you!

My coaching is unique in that it focuses on the entire performer, not just part. How is the voice produced in a way that is healthy and natural? What sets you aside from other performers? My students have high success rates in musical theater to commercial and classical styles. My focus is tailored to the individual with a healthy, firm understanding of technique and style.

About Jeff

Jeff has performed lead roles with the Mississippi Opera, Belmont University Opera Theater, and was selected in 2018 to perform an American Premier in Nashville, TN of a South Korean Work accompanied by choir and orchestra. In 2014, Jeff was granted the opportunity to study at the Juilliard School through private instruction and later studied at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music with performance emphasis in voice and piano. Jeff currently works with students from beginner to advanced levels in voice and piano. He specializes in jazz, musical theater, and classical styles of singing and is happy to cater needs to the individual student.

Lara is seriously the best. Makes practicing fun and easy and makes things that seem really hard not so intimidating. I've only had her for a few months and already sound and feel so much better singing. I'm excited to learn more from her and recommend her to anyone else trying jazz or commercial singing.

"Keith is a wonderful voice teacher. Very professional. So happy I found him. Could not have food a better teacher."

"Mr. Thomas is an outstanding vocal coach! He is patient, understanding, passionate and positive. I've been with him for about 5 years now doing Classical
music. I started out as alto and now I am a mezzo soprano. Mr. Thomas never gives up on you and always make sure that you are having fun on what you do and improve on your technique but also to be apart of the piece and understand where it's coming from. I am still doing lessons with him to this day! He gives you many opportunities to expand and learn."

"In just a few short months I can't believe how much I've learned from Jessica. My technique has improved; my tone in the upper part of my range has impro
ved; how to keep my tongue from getting in the way / impeding the sound; so many aspects of singing. When I started my lessons I was particularly concerned that I might be doing something that was tiring my voice and causing it to lose volume. Jessica's knowledge of and ability to demonstrate proper singing technique helped me through that concern and I know I am a "healthier" singer now. Knowledge and ability aside, her approach is also very patient and very encouraging. I highly recommend her to anyone interested in improving their technique, tone, range, artistic ability, etc."
