Techniques such as breathing, diction, pitch, tone, posture, rhythm, smoothness, and stage presence will be practiced. I do my best to develop lessons that are tailored to each student based on their individual needs. Lessons start simply with gentle vocal exercises based on humming and open vowel sounds. Each student can expect to be challenged through exciting stimulating exercises. I also teach techniques to improve posture, poise, and vocal performance. I enjoy using simple scales to improve pitch and volume while also working on clarifying the students voice.

A students performance, whether they aspire to be a performer, teacher, or just enjoy performing should have a positive self-portrait of themselves. We will work on building confidence so we as performers can take pride in ourselves and what we represent. My students are expected to practice outside of the lesson. I also encourage them to keep a practice journal of when and how long they have practiced. It helps the ...

Great. Very personable and easy to relax with. Great exercises and homework I feel is doable as my first ever vocal lesson. Can't wait for my next session :)
Junie
My 5 year old daughter has become a stronger dancer with Ms. Kelly as she builds up for her recital. We are truly lucky to find such a dedicated and talented teacher.
Tracey
I was very lucky to have found Kelly. I had always dreamed of having artistic talent but I am not a naturally good singer. Within two years, I have gone from singing in the shower to having developed to stage performance. Kelly has taught me so much from the artistic expression of singing to the mechanics of turning my voice into an instrument. She has an incredible ability to listen to my voice and pinpoint the exact adjustment I need to make it sound great. She's such a fun person to be around that I always look forward to my next lesson. Her positive attitude and approach is also a testament to her high level of professionalism. She provides feedback that is positive. but also helps me improve She is the perfect combination of teacher and coach and I would highly recommend her for anyone interested in singing.

Students will work on vocal technique, both through vocal exercises and through application to repertoire. Genres covered include anything to classical repertoire to musical theater to pop-style singing. All of my training will be from a classical standpoint, because it is my belief that this is the basis for all healthy singing, regardless of the genre.

My wife and I took 2 months of lessons from Eric and they were all great! We were both basically beginners (I had some memory from lesson that I took as a kid) and Eric helped us get started and off on the right track. He has a great/fun personality and is a great teacher. Unfortunately we were unable to keep taking lessons with him due to a conflict in scheduling. I would totally recommend him as a piano teacher though.

Singing is joy and my approach uses positive physical, psychological and emotional feedback to unlock the potential a free voice can realize. The exercises are clear and accessible and they lead to gains in power, clarity and range. After earning my teaching degree (in high school math of all things) I embarked on a 30-year career that took me all over the world. However, it was not until I discovered the work of W. Stephen Smith that I truly began to see the true possibilities of my voice. I want to give to students what I never had all those years - a reliable technique and a way to give voice to all the beauty of the music we want to share with the world.

Michelle & Robert were amazing & worked so well with my daughter for her first lesson! They are very organized & make her “homework” easy for me!:-)We look forward to the next lesson!
Faith
I have been a student of Michelle and Robert since August of 2016. I originally
reached out to them to help my performance in school musicals as well as start the training process to one day become a professional musical theatre actress. What I ended up getting was that and so much more.

Whatever opportunity I took, they were there supporting me every step of the way. They made sure I was prepared for anything: auditions, performances, competitions, solos, and much more. Each year I am astounded at the chances they give me to become a more well rounded performer, and at the high level of progress I make with them in a small amount of time. They helped uncover amazing things about myself I never dreamed of finding out.

As a student on the autism spectrum I had a lot of insecurities about working in a
different and more private setting. Michelle and Robert’s care and dedication almost immediately wiped away those fears. Every lesson I felt encouraged to show my true self and was supported during the more vulnerable moments. The work they have done with their students with disabilities is something beyond praise.

4 years have passed with these amazing teachers, and I feel more prepared than
ever for my future career in performing. I would highly recommend Michelle and Robert for any students with disabilities, aspiring musical theatre actors, or any general music fanatics with a strong will to learn!
Liangyu Z.
Love Michelle and Robert's class. They are super encouraging and very knowledgable. I have been taking vocal lessons with them for two months and already seeing a lot of improvements. Really enjoy the classes! I am normally a 'afraid of teachers' person, but taking classes with Michelle and Robert has been so much fun that I feel absolutely comfortable! Love it! Recommend to everyone!

Lessons will consist of a warm up and repertoire work! I am a firm believer of a strong foundation for singing, meaning creating a good breath support system, working on consistency in the voice, and doing what makes each singer comfortable. I want everyone to truly enjoy what they sing, and so choosing repertoire will be a very collaborative process! My main goal is for growth in the singer, as a person and as a musician. For more information, give me a call, shoot me an email, or even a text. I look forward to working with you!

"I was honestly speechless during my first lesson! Daniel G is the person I have been looking for in a long time. Daniel G is a great teacher! He has such a powerful and controlled voice and what a great personable guy! I just recorded a song tonight and I can already hear and feel a difference. After my voice changed, I kept getting frustrated trying to find the right teacher. I actually think I learned and improved more from my first lesson with Daniel than weeks with others. I'm almost hesitant to write this review in fear Daniel will have less time with me. 8-)"
