Ted is extremely knowledgeable about music theory and is a talented guitarist. We had talked briefly before our first lesson so he could assess my goals...and he literally managed to fill in the missing pieces and get me the information that I needed in the very first lesson to be able to achieve my goal. It's an overwhelming amount of information, and now it's on me to silly what I've learned and practice, practice, practice! But in five short lessons my understanding of music has changed dramatically, and as a result, my playing has improved as well.

Thanks Ted!

Do you want to find YOUR voice? The process of discovering your own voice can be enriching, fun, and even therapeutic! Whether you are working towards an audition, expanding your skills for your career, or wanting to learn how to use your voice in exciting ways, voice lessons can help you reach your goals. I have been teaching voice lessons to people of all levels for 10+ years, and I take pride in being able to help you discover your vocal capabilities in the healthiest and most enjoyable way possible. My technique starts by providing students with a solid, healthy foundation to vocal production, whether for singing, acting, or other kinds of public speaking. After the basics, we work together to find the learning path that is right for you, arming you with tools and resources to continue to develop for the rest of your life. Everyone has a voice, sometimes it just takes a little work to find it. So, let's hear yours!

Michael has gone above and beyond helping me to find my voice! It's incredible to hear how far I've come from some of my earlier recordings to now. Unbelievable!

He can do lessons online or in-person, but I highly recommend doing in-person lessons to be able to hear the more intricate sounds of your own voice and to learn from listening to his.

Then you’ve come to the right person!

I am determined to make each and every one of my students love and appreciate music and playing the violin! After years of teaching, I thoroughly believe that the student must come first and that their growth and happiness are the most important.

About Paulo

My name is Paulo Carmelo and I would love to have you as part of my violin studio and our musical family! I have been teaching for almost 6 years now and have worked with incredible teachers from Juilliard, USC, and Colburn. Now it’s my time to pass down their knowledge to you! Whether you want to

Simply put, Paulo is an outstanding instructor. He himself is so driven and is constantly working to improve his musicality, which directly translates to his excellent teaching! Learning with Paulo is a great step for younger musicians especially. He dedicates a lot of time and detail into ensuring the students are developing correct playing technique and aids them in exploring a variety of repertoire! Always great things coming from Paulo.
Sharon
Paulo is a well rounded person who has a phenomenal passion for music and a gift for making friends and helping others. Paulo is energetic as well as patient and has a knack for personalizing the lessons to fit the students in order for them to grow musically.
The ideas that Paulo offers help the student break out of the “learning boredom” and think logically beyond what they are use to doing in a school program. Paulo is professional, punctual and experienced. He brings fresh, new ideas that are fun and that bring positive attention to the art of the violinist.
I would definitely recommend Paulo for any level of learning, and of any age. If you are in need of refresher lessons or your child is starting from scratch, Paulo undoubtedly can bring an exciting ease to learning the violin while teaching good, professional skills that have been proven a success.
Jasmine
So, Paulo was my first lessons teacher and I honestly couldn’t have asked for better. He taught me most of the basics and helped me create a strong foundation to improve upon: relaxed bow hand/arm, vibrato, positions, 3-octave scales, some sight reading, expressiveness. (sprinkle in some music theory) He taught all this while being patient and pushing me to be my best. 10 out of 10 would recommend for anyone who is considering.

I've been playing the clarinet for 15 years and teaching private lessons for one year. I have loved helping my students improve their tone quality, technique, and rhythm on the clarinet. My students have developed a passion for music and become more advanced on the clarinet by taking lessons with me. I use rhythm, technique, and tonal quality exercises, and a specialized program to teach simple to advanced rhythm. I'll share the "tricks of the trade" to help you master difficult music with ease.
