experienced teacher for singing. And he is very patient and nice.

Nicholas has been teaching my daughter vocal lessons for about 11 months and he’s fantastic!

She’s improved so much in 10 months! He’s awesome and delivers results! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and she’s just 9 years old and has developed so much due to his mentor ship. My daughter also has an aptitude for singing and tends to catch on to his instructions quickly.

I specialize in Singing stage performance.
Being able to sing well is not enough to perform well.
Student needs to bring to stage at least 85% of what he is able to do in the classroom. Better - 150%.
In my class students meet in small groups, perorm in front of each other, and then we exchange notes. We do 2-3 rounds of performing and discussing to make sure it all works.
In my classroom student learns how get rid of stage fright, how to make stressful situation to work for his advantage, not to stand in a way of best performance.
I also use Stanislavsky acting method for singing performance.

Specific & clear in her instructions, open to feedback, patient and encouraging, courteous and respectful - not to mention a great singer. Looking forward to future lessons with Deborah.
Jeeyun
I was pretty nervous about taking a singing lesson, as it's something I've never done in my life. I'm so thankful I got connected to Deborah. She's a fantastic teacher and taught me so much about how our body works to produce sounds when singing and what I am doing. From the first lesson I was already given helpful tips and ways to practice things on my own! I'm looking forward to more lessons with Deborah.

I have participated in a number of singing groups and chamber groups. I am currently in a chamber group in California where we will premiere a composers new song cycle in July and August of 2020.
I have also sung in (and am a member) in a number of opera choruses and local chapter university groups. I was also invited to lead the Birmingham Chinese Choir in Alabama and create and lead choir classes at local schools in California.
I assisted in directing and leading a number of performing arts summer and spring camps where students would learn and perform several pieces in less than a week!
To say I have been around the choral setting for most of my life is most accurate.

Music lessons are all about expression, education, and creativity.

During our vocal/choral lessons, we will explore techniques from basics to advanced. Whether you are interested in becoming a better singer or performer in classical, opera, theater, jazz, blues, pop, or rock, you have come to the right ...

"Nick is an excellent teacher. He has already improved my creativity and communication skills so much in the few sessions I've had with him. I've been able to step outside of my comfort zone and am a better actor for it. Thank you Nick for such encouraging words and your kind spirit. I can't wait to work together again very soon."

"I am a dentist and my wonderful assistant was having trouble communicating with patients. Her voice was flat and monotone and she would freeze up when asked a question. Outside of work her voice and personality was completely different, and I wanted to see it come out when she worked with our patients. She did 5 online lessons with Eulis using Skype. I noticed a difference immediately, she was more confident and her personality began to show in her voice. I am very happy with the results and my assistant has stated that this has helped her in both her personal and professional life. She is no longer freezing up when asked a difficult question and is speaking in a more direct and purposeful way. Thank you Eulis!"
