I have working with Michael for several
weeks, and I hear noticeable improvement in my singing after my
stroke with Michael's vocal training.

I would recommend anyone who serious in vocal training to contact
Michael.

Michael is the best singing teacher I've ever had. He has done a wonderful job of helping me to reach the potential that I knew I had as a singer.

His unique and innovative approach to vocal warm ups has helped me to find and define my vocal range.

He also happens to be an excellent vocal arranger, having helped me to add vocal accents to my songs that have given them new life.

Thank you for everything Michael!
Lissy N.
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!

Veronica was great, she came prepared with worksheets and fun little tricks for young learners to remember the notes on a keyboard. My son loved his lesson, he's looking forward to lesson #2.

She was the great teacher for my son. She has helped my son to build up strong foundation on voice. She is kind and pleasant as well!

My 6yr old just took his first lesson and is hooked. Gigi is very sweet and stirred up an excitement in him. My son definitely liked the "idea" of learning the piano but is now confidant and actually writing his first song! Who knew, 5 notes and you can become a composer! BRAVO GIGI:)

Online Music Theory Teacher

I teach applied jazz theory to guitar players and all other instruments accept piano. You must know how to play your instrument and know you basic scales. From there we take you into a wonderland of melody making patterns, scales, and an understanding of jazz theory that you didn't even know existed. This is the thrill of a life time when you hear notes that you already know extending over the chords like silk threads from a golden treasure. You will love this study.

Justin is the quintessential professional in every way. His approach is to make you a better student of music not necessarily just learn guitar. He is patient with you and very positive and reinforcing. The passion he has for music is obvious from the first time you meet him. As with any good manager, just by the way he teaches, makes you want to be a better student.

Eric is a great teacher. He know when to push me and when to ease up. He made the work fun and rewarding. I saw real growth in my vocal abilities in a short time. Thanks Eric
Julia
Eric is the greatest. I enjoyed the experience working with him, how he took me to the another level with my voice. He is a great musician and teacher. Looking forward to working with him again.
Chelsea
Overall I had a good experience with Eric. I was hoping to learn more technical skills about the voice and breathing tips and tricks which I feel like I didn't get much of. For me, that was a miss but he has some really great warm-ups that I have still been utilizing. I feel that most of the lesson was just about getting through songs versus understanding areas of difficulty within the voice and why that issue is occurring.

"I had the opportunity last week to take a piano lesson from Richard. Growing up I took piano lessons, but never really practiced. I did the bare-minimum to get by, so that my teacher wouldn't be upset with me. After I stopped taking piano lessons, I lost a lot of my ability to play. I went to Richard hoping that he could help me grasp the basics again including: chords, major and minor positions, chord inversions, and a little about composing my own music. First off, Richard didn't make me feel stupid for not knowing how to play. He patiently explained concepts to me, and then showed me through examples. Then he let me practice and offered encouragement as I played. He also did a great job simplifying the teaching. It was very easy for me to follow and understand what he was teaching. I would highly recommend Richard to anyone who wants to either learn or improve their piano skills."

"Tomoko is a fantastic tutor. I had a lot of trouble understanding music theory because it had been a topic I hadn't seen before. She was able to explain things to me in a very clear and easy way. She was also able to help me with ear training lessons which was also surprisingly easy, considering it was a topic I felt I had a lot of trouble with at the time. She's one of the best, no doubt.

Also, if you happen to get piano lessons from her, I'm sure you'll get more than your money's worth. She's an amazing jazz, classical, and overall pianist."
