I went through 4 voice teachers here in NYC before settling on Mary - been taking vocal training with her for about a year and half now and it's been worth every penny.

Mary is an excellent communicator, with a great sense for analogies and concrete descriptions for abstract concepts (esp crucial for things like singing). She's a gifted vocalist, having been classically trained with an Opera and Jazz background, but more than that - she has the ability to enhance someone else's sense of style and natural voice. She is of course also an amazing human all around, with a great attitude, style, and general "lust for life." Highly recommend Mary as a vocal coach
Jon
My decades long musical history was moving toward something new - singer-songwriter-guitar performer. I needed help. Mary is shockingly amazing in all three, which says nothing for her piano and tech skills, which says nothing for her really beautiful ear and professional easy demeanor ... I can't recommend her enough. She has transformed a part of my musical world into something, for which I am both eternally grateful and waiting for my next lesson.
jon R.
I began taking lessons with Mary after I heard her sing. Besides having a terrific voice I really love how effortless she makes singing look. I've been taking lessons with her for about a month and she's been helping me connect the dots. I appreciate her method. She works with me to build my voice and doesn't push a style or direction. Her descriptions give me directions on what to think and how to feel when I sing. I look forward to the coming months!

Michelle and Robert are a remarkable team!! If you are looking for voice teachers who not only bring their considerable skill and knowledge to the table, but also a sense of fun, then look no further!! Our daughter has been taking voice lessons with Michelle and Robert for the past year, and we have been so delighted with her vocal development since she began her lessons with them! Michelle and Robert have customized lessons to address what our daughter needs, and always take the time to explain vocal techniques clearly. As a parent, I have appreciated their timely communication regarding scheduling, competition deadlines, and music repertoire. Most importantly, Michelle and Robert genuinely care about our daughter and her music goals. We could not be happier to have Michelle and Robert as our daughter’s voice teachers!!
Morgan
Very new to voice lessons and loving my experience with Michelle and Robert! They are excellent teachers and as dedicated to my knowledge as much as my sound. I know I have a long way to go but I'm feeling so encouraged by the increase in vocal stability and sound.
Taylor
Michelle and Robert have been amazing teachers and such a joy to work with. They've been welcoming and approachable from the get go, patiently helping me to grow as a singer and get more comfortable stretching my range. I've enjoyed every lesson with them, and appreciate the mix of experience, professionalism, and fun they bring to every session.

"Since I was in high school, I’ve always wanted to develop my skills as a piano player, drummer, or guitarist. I had a ways to go, and Greg was assigned to help me grow in our youth worship team. Out of the years I spent there, Greg was the best teacher I had! Hands on training, coherent instructions, and constructive feedback from our sessions were what made me into the musician I am today. Greg Campbell is the best!"

"I hired Danny early this year 2016 at my home studio in Austin,TX. I have been working on a recording studio project. With 6 songs I needed to record. I did three songs on my own. That took a week and a half and at least 5 to 6 hrs each. I looked around and hired a local coach who was very classical and just didn't get it. 3 hrs I will never get back. I found Danny online, hired him, and it was perfect...We warmed up with scales and light cardio. Very different I will say but effective. Anyways, we finished the 3 songs in just under 2 hrs. Wow! Straight to the point. So I sing Gospel music and had so many techniques wrong. A little bit of good habits goes a long way."
