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.

Lessons will cover proper breathing and vocal placement (navigating vocal breaks), how to modify the voice depending on the style you want to sing, and how to find your own unique voice. I aim my lessons towards younger singers because I provide a more contemporary take on singing. I teach in a way that is beneficial to the new generation of singers that want to be unique, and break free from past ways of doing things.

About Connor

Music, in every sense of the form, is a bridge to our emotions. Performing it sends chills down our spines, while listening to it causes us to feel whatever we need to feel in that moment. Music has always been a part of my life, I have 10 years of experience on violin, 8 on guitar and piano, and I

Every voice is a unique "living instrument", strongly influenced by so many physical, emotional and psychological factors. In my classes I love to help students exploring their own voice beyond the simple concept of learning a melody and repeating it, showing them how to use their instrument at its full potential of musical expression. I like to teach the technique together with the interpretation, going through every musical style, pop, rock, R&B, soul, country, you name it! I firmly believe that there is something to learn from every genre, and I think that the listening process is an essential step to find our own personal voice. Throughout my career I worked with students of all ages, from 5 to over 60 years old, with different levels of music preparation, from complete amateurs to professional singers.

About Marco

I'm a singer-songwriter, voice teacher and Berklee College of Music alumni. I started my career in Italy, winning national competitions like the Tour Music Fest, and participating to the first edition of the talent show “The X-Factor”. I graduated at the University of Pisa in “Music, Cinema and The

Marco is a very thoughtful, attentive, and experienced vocal coach. I've started to become a lot more aware of how to delivery songs through my voice. Highly recommended!
Brent
Was quickly able to find areas of improvement and provide excersises to fix the issues.
Ben
First of all, Marco is a tremendous singer and musical artist, as evidenced by his amazing vocals and songwriting in his original music. He has years of experience singing and performing professionally, and it shows.

Even more importantly, Marco is a spectacular teacher. He is a student of the voice and knows more about the anatomy of singing than anyone I've ever met. He can describe where you should place your sound, pinpoint how your body is affecting your voice, and immediately show you several exercises that target your specific challenge spots.

Marco has also helped me improve so much as a performer and musician; he has challenged me to sing songs that are slightly out of my comfort zone and given me countless tips on how to pay homage to an artist when covering them while still making the song my own. Finally, he has also helped me develop my own musical style as a cover artist and original artist.
