I use vocalizes to teach change in the voice and also different types of music to attain a better sound. I try to make it as physical as possible since so much of the effort depends on the brain. I want to help each student achieve their goal. Together we can get to that sound which is uniquely you.

Experienced teacher of 20+ years, specializing in the beginner/intermediate piano student! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be playing songs in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more. Let's get started!

For beginners, I highly recommend starting with a 30-minute lesson. Intermediate and advanced should consider 45-minute lessons. 60-min lessons are available but are only recommended on a case-by-case basis. Please take into consideration your student's current skill level when deciding on the lesson length.

In our lessons, we can cover anything you'd like (your enjoyment of guitar is my top priority), ranging from basic technique all the way to advanced fretboard maneuvers. I can teach you anything from simple strum patterns or fun classic riffs all the way to the technical mastery of great guitarists like Joe Satriani and Steve Vai. I'm well versed in music theory and can give you insight on how and why ideas work and how they can easily apply to your playing (such as scales, arpeggios, etc.)

"Michelle is an exceptional teacher that has helped our daughter develop and protect her voice.

Our daughter came out sining when she was born. Though we were told that she was too young to take singing lessons (9 y/o), we were concerned about protecting her vocal cord. Regardless of the fact that she wasn't taking lessons she was singing all the time and would often choose broadway pieces or long winded pop songs. For the most part as a biased parent we felt she had talent, but could tell when she was straining or belting out a long and high note. So against advice we tried singing lessons. We had gone through 2 different teachers and finally found a wonderful instructor in Michelle. Our now 10 y/o is still singing, but with more control, expression, and more important with knowledge and techniques on how to protect her voice so that we can continue to enjoy her singing.

Recently on a whim AP tried out for the local children's theatre in a musical. First audition and she got a call back and by the third day was casted in the musical. She has a very small solo, two other small group pieces, and also part of the major cast for the big group singing. We are very proud that she achieved this. But all the credit, confidence, and preparation goes to her singing teacher Michelle. We highly recommend this instructor. She makes the sessions fun as well as technically appropriate for the age level of our daughter. She is very knowledgable and communicates well both to our daughter and myself as a parent. This has been exciting and we hope to continue with Michelle for our daughter loves her lessons and continues to grow and develop."

"Mr. Thomas is an outstanding vocal coach! He is patient, understanding, passionate and positive. I've been with him for about 5 years now doing Classical music. I started out as alto and now I am a mezzo soprano. Mr. Thomas never gives up on you and always make sure that you are having fun on what you do and improve on your technique but also to be apart of the piece and understand where it's coming from. I am still doing lessons with him to this day! He gives you many opportunities to expand and learn."
