Really great stuff !!
Ashleigh S.
It was only a first lesson but I can already tell I'm going to be taking more lessons with Daniel. He's very knowledgeable, patient, and dedicated. He detailed a specific plan for me to work on that isn't too rigid or boring, I'm looking forward to relearning the flute with him.

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A MUSIC TEACHER- just take the dive and book with Monica!!! She is the absolute best. I am so self-conscious about my singing voice and Monica put me at ease immediately. She is so approachable and friendly. I've been in lessons for a few months and have already learned to so much that I can hear it in my voice. She is the absolute best.

I just had my first lesson with an acting teacher besides a high school theatre teacher. I didn’t know what to expect but I’m glad I decided to try. I’m excited to see where I can go from here.

I teach singers of all genres (country, classical, jazz, 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 vocal training. I teach an open throat technique (appoggio) 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. I have extensive stage experience and teach my students how to have confidence while portraying a character on stage.

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. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology, where I extensively studied the anatomy of the voice. I am th

I am currently pursuing my doctoral degree at the Eastman School of Music in vocal performance and literature. I believe in empowering my students so that they can sing in all styles of music that interest them with ease and freedom. Good singing is good singing and I am comfortable teaching classical, musical theater, pop, jazz, country etc. I like to set up my students with a strong foundation for singing so that they can practice efficiently and overcome vocal obstacles without my instruction.

About Michael

Hello everyone, I am Michael - I am currently in school at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY pursuing my doctoral degree in vocal performance and literature. I have sung all over the world in operas, musicals and with professional choirs. I enjoy teaching all levels of singing and love

Madeleine
Great teacher - funny, patient and understanding. I look forward to more lessons with Michael in the future!
Elizabeth
I started lessons with Michael having done both contemporary voice and years of choir. But prior to training with Michael, I'd never really been coached as to how to properly sing in a classical style. He's allowed me to find an entire element of my voice I didn't know I had and made it incredibly straightforward to progress. I now absolutely love singing in a way I didn't previously think I would.
Abby
Michael is knowledgeable, funny, and thoughtful. I am a wind instrumentalist, and Michael tailored voice lessons to discuss topics specifically related to my areas of experience. I would highly recommend Michael for voice lessons!

"I've been rapping for 15yrs...and when I met Prophet, God took my game to a whole new level., When it comes to stage performance, there is so much more to think about than just what am I going to where, and what songs will I peform. Prophet has helped me track my breathing and make sure I'm not too winded off stage when I'm finished with my set, he's helped me understand how to hold a microphone properly and consider how something sounds to the audience not just to me. He's also taught me about utilizing the monitors and speakers the house provides to my benefit and paying attention to the sound the stage gives off. These things, are rarely considered by performers and rappers, but have proven vital to how I perform onstage. Thus giving me the ability to minister properly off stage as well."
