I want people to feel included and seen, no matter what you believe "your type" is. There's room to look and explore with your repertoire and book. You'll be surprised what you find in just going with something less well known or not known to be for you.
I want to explore what you vocal range can do but also your power and what you seek within the moments and words. I have many great tips and tricks to get you inside the room, rock an audition, or just simply figure out pieces to get you prepared and trained. I have ways to open the potential so there's less constriction and stress within your voice as well.
Even if you just want second opinions, I'm always completely open and honest, constructive to every minute. We can work on warmups and a couple pieces, or come as ready vocally warmed up and we work on pieces the entire time. OR I answer questions you might have about the unknown or what you're looking to aim towards.
Can't wait to work with the incredible super stars in the ...

Veronica Estigoy
As a trained actor but a novice to auditioning for musical theatre productions, Mike was a lifesaver to work with. I always felt insecure about not knowing how to read music, yet Mike was able to simplify and translate the intimidating material. He also helped bring out my inner self to the work. Will always go to him if I find myself in a musical pickle! Of course, what do you expect from a teacher who carries the music in his soul wherever he goes...
Maria
There have been so many times Mike has helped me with my vocals. Not only for audition prep, but even for times when I felt like I was struggling with my vocals during a show. The great thing about Mike is that he makes you feel so comfortable. Not only does he know exactly what he’s talking about, he is an excellent teacher and is incredibly encouraging as well. Any time I need an instructor, someone to help me prepare for an audition, or someone to give me feedback on a performance, he is the person I turn to.
Kayla Rodriguez
Mike is such a talented singer/teacher. For many years I have been lucky to have around when I needed someone to explain any type of music for me. They have such an ear for music, successful finding music for you within your range, and some challenging ones that they know with practice you’ll be able to sing. There loving nature and patience makes them the best instructor. Making you feel safe and warm, with a lovely smile and a voice for miles. I cannot read music but while working with mike on a personal level I was able to pick up a few tricks of the trade, while gaining confidence in my own singing abilities. All around an AMAZING person to work with.

Successfully teaching current students with clear, concise lessons.

All of my current students have developed confidence and enthusiasm to learn all materials presented in an easy to comprehend format.

Each student learns at different levels so all lessons are customized to challenge them but also insure they learn and retain all materials presented to them.

Currently have 16 students ranging from beginners to advanced level.
When selecting a teacher, make arrangements to meet in person to review short and long term goals of learning a musical instrument. Pricing should only be used as the last criteria before making a final decision. It's important to insure your instructor is patient and willing to challenge students to setup a practice routine that will fit their current schedule.

If a student needs an instrument, have instructor give recommendations based on the musical styles they are interested in learning.

Students often ask how long it will take to learn to play a Guitar.

About Alejandro

Alejandro is a great instructor, really knowledgeable and motivational. I started lessons with him as a beginner and I have made a lot of progress.
Elizabeth
Alejandro is a marvelous teacher of music, the guitar specifically, to my 3 grandchildren every Saturday and now for getting onto a year. They love it and are learning ever so much! He is a most talented musician, himself, and has a way of transferring all of that to the 2 boys and my granddaughter. He is reliable and punctual and a treasure to have the opportunity to have him teach the children. I studied the piano for 15 years when I was young, so know a lot of what I speak

I teach singers of all genres (country, classical, pop, bluegrass, rock…) to sing with confidence and freedom!

I have a M.M in vocal performance from the Chicago College of Performing Arts and have extensive operatic training. I teach a technique that allows the singer to sing with freedom, and access their entire range evenly. I also work with students to develop style, interpretation, languages, and acting ability.

About Benjamin

I have extensively studied vocal performance for many years and continue to add to my own technique. I have a Master of Vocal Performance Degree from the Chicago College of Performing Arts.

Ben - You can't expect to be an excellent singer over night

Me - Oh yeah I can (in my mind)

(end of lesson)

Me - I'm done (I quit)!

Ben - You're getting it; it takes time and practice (learning your voice).

Six month update: I am still very much pleased with my lessons with Ben. My confidence is growing and I'm actually starting to understand how to use my voice. I may not be where I want to be Yet, but I'm moving in the right direction; it takes time and practice.

Incredibly knowledgeable and cute right to the chase. Great for any student looking to progress quickly and start singing as soon as possible.

Patrick
Jamila's a good listener and could help anyone from a novice, like,myself, to someone whom is more classically trained.
Dee
Highly recommended! Jamila offers guidance that translates well for someone like me who does not play any instruments and does not have any experience distinguishing notes. I learn something new each time I attend a lesson. Though I have been singing at karaoke bars for years, in the car, and at home, I am now gaining a better understanding of how to sing in a more consistent way and work with melodies to bring out the best in my voice. Jamila has given me a lot more confidence in my vocal abilities. My goal is to branch out from karaoke in bars and be able to sign up for an open mic night with live instrument accompaniment instead of using karaoke vocal guidance.
Sarkis
Jamila was gentle at turns, and assertive as that need arose. I’m both uplifted, and informed. There are things I’ve learned I didn’t know I needed, or even did not know could be known. It is these subtle passages per lesson that have aided my growth immeasurably. Thanks, Jamila!

John, Is a knowledgeable and friendly drum teacher that is eager to help you reach your drum performance goals. Being a guitar player first, my lessons with John have been at a sporadic beginner pace as I attempt to generate time for both worlds. That being said John has been very patient and accommodating, and I'm sure he will help me dial in my drum skills.

"Excellent Instructor

I highly recommend Benjamin! I have had several instructors and I can honestly say that he is the best I've had so far. He doesn't stick to any rigid lesson plans. His teaching style is very dynamic, he will taylor the lesson to fit your interest and level of playing. He keeps things fun and interesting and is good at coming up with creative exercises to try and challenge you. He also knows a lot of different music styles from what I can tell. I highly recommend him."

5 Easy Songs for Kids to Play On Guitar

Are your kids looking for easy songs to play on guitar? Get them started with these great suggestions from guitar teacher Willy M.... That first guitar lesson is critical for establishing a love of playing in our students, but most of the time teachers approach the instrument as though we need to prepare the student for the worst. "It will be difficult... You have to put in a lot of practice... Your fingers will hurt, etc." These things only serve to discourage the student and the parent, who …
