I tried 4 different vocal coaches to fix my vocal cord problem. A combination of anxiety and lack of technical understanding led me to cause tears in my vocal cord without yelling or belting.

My job requires a lot of talking... also I love talking, so I was determined to solve this problem.

After seeing a speech therapist, a clinical laryngologist, and a reiki healing specialist, I found Michelle.

Michele is patient with her approach and helped me learn how to technically and mentally protect my vocal cords from harm.

She is very perceptive: even through video lessons she is able to give me specific exercises to fix problems as they arise, and they are not always the same problem.

I have recommended Michelle to my friends and family and look forward to gifting voice lessons for holidays and birthdays because of the immense value they have added to my life.
Irene
Michelle is great! I have been hesitant about doing online lessons, but she makes them feel natural. I can hear and feel the difference in my voice after only a few meetings, and I always look forward to the next.
Matt A.
Great first lesson. Very knowledgeable and focuses on fundamentals and making sure you understand the actual inner workings of your voice, throat, and diaphragm.

Dr. Chaz is a very knowledgeable and patient instructor. He is an incredibly adept musician. He can identify what exactly you need improvement on and provides the most helpful advice on how to attain that improvement. I have studied music (flute) for 10 years with numerous teachers and band/orchestra directors, all very skilled and incredible themselves, but I never received clearer instruction than with Dr. Chaz. He explained concepts that many young musicians (like myself) struggle with and he beautifully portrays the relationship between theory, practice, and performance. Additionally, I appreciate his emphasis on ensuring vocal health and meditation- meditating pitches so that one can internalize the pitches to sing them more accurately. I was planning to remain his student for as long as I could but due to personal health and scheduling reasons, I had to discontinue and hope to return soon. I 150% recommend taking his lessons. Get ready to learn so much and expand as a musician!
Mark
Really great vocal teacher. He's very patient to his students. He goes on all the topics about singing. He's really good at helping his students prepare for a song. He doesn't waste time on any unnecessary practice. He teaches his students how to practice at home. I learned a lot of singing terms from him as well. Overall, I think he's a great vocal coach.

"Roman is a wonderful teacher. Can't say enough about what a great teacher Roman is—not only when it comes to French learning but also learning in general. He embodies a perfect balance of being observant, always noticing where your weaknesses are and being encouraging, always making you feel like you can do it. He's patient yet always pushes you to do better. Not everyone who knows French is a good French teacher. You need to know how to teach. And Roman knows how to teach. This sets him apart from all the French tutors I've had in the past. I feel much more confident and, for the first time, I come to believe if I put in the work, I can really speak French."

When it comes to foreign language studies, most students choose to learn Spanish, French, or German before they even consider learning an Asian language. When they do think about Asian languages, they usually choose Chinese or Japanese first, and then maybe Korean as a distant third. This is unfortunate, because there are many great reasons to learn the Korean language. There are many benefits to learning Korean, and if any of them resonate with you, find a Korean tutor to help you master …
