I don't just train the voice, I train the singer. We won't do 37 scales and exercises. We will learn how to isolate muscle settings and recreate.

You'll learn how to create any vocal blend you desire, and you'll be able to do it on cue. No more mystery. No more wondering how things work, and hoping they do when you get on stage! If you really want to understand your voice, or you're a beginner and need help starting from scratch, we can do it here. :)

You will learn music that interests you, as well as, be exposed to genres and music styles you might not be privy to. Your vocal health is of utmost importance to me and we will focus on developing a resonate tone, free of unnecessary tension; In addition to, strengthening your diaphragmatic breathing techniques and aligning your body position. All while developing your sight-reading, music theory, and acting/performance skills and working together to overcome any obstacles you may face in the process.

I've worked with students who came in struggling to find pitch and they've left with powerful voices. I've worked with professionals looking to open a new opportunity and they did. This isn't rocket science, there's no secret formula. But, I do work very hard to help you discover the unique and powerful qualities of your voice. This and proper technique are key.
You can include other instruments in these sessions.

Hello! It's a pleasure to 'meet' you. I'm David and I've been teaching voice since 1988 from the college level all they way down to little kids! My main goal is to see you singing songs you love, using great vocal technique. I am very supportive and work with beginners through advanced students. Your outcome from lessons with me will be having vocal freedom and confidence in what you are doing. And it will be fun along the way.

Jazz is my specialty (I work constantly as a professional singer in this field), but I am comfortable in musical theatre, 'Classical' and pop/R&B. I am also an expert with young voices (and it's important, because they're different).

Ready to shine? Let's get started!

About David

I'm a professional classical singer and I came to David to learn how to sing jazz. He changed my life: I use his vocal tips not only in jazz but also in my classical singing. I became more confident in my work and in my life in general. David is an experienced musican, singer, and teacher. He is a wonderful and responsive person.
Alexandra
David is an incredibly professional, kind and caring voice teacher. Just the first lesson with him helped me make a huge improvement in singing - he made me feel relaxed and finally break my inner blocks so I started to sing with much bigger confidence than before. David has a lot of valuable knowledge and techniques to share with his students. And what is also important he is an extremely friendly person, always willing to answer your questions and help you achieve your singing goals.

Russ is a straight up musical genius that has decades of experience playing the guitar. He will make you think of music in an entirely different way and his unique approach to the guitar makes learning so much easier. Definitely worth it!

Milton is a great teacher, he identified key areas of improvement and had passion for what he did. I would hire Milton again as a teacher in the future and highly recommend him."

Eventually, I decided to start taking lessons from them and I am so glad I did! I learned about music theory, different styles of singing, and how to healthily use my voice. I have vocal scarring/damage that causes me discomfort and some pain, especially while singing. Saturday was able to teach me ways to sing comfortably as well as improve my overall sound! It has been and continues to be great!! :)"

"I took voice lessons from Mary Ann at Groovin' On Music from 2007-2009, and they were worth every penny. I was a background singer in a worship team at church and I was shy to sing lead because I didn't know how to sing vibrato or navigate the falsetto break in my range. I had always wanted to take lessons as a kid but never was able to until adulthood. I was a bit nervous when I first came in, but Mary Ann put me at ease. She is a beautiful spirit who inspired me, challenged me, and made me laugh. She is not only amazingly talented and experienced, but she genuinely loves people and makes the lessons an enjoyable experience. Mary Ann definitely took my voice to the next level. Many people have commented on the difference in my voice and my confidence level before and after the lessons. I now sing lead, am at home with my vibrato and know how to use all the notes in my range. I would absolutely recommend Mary Ann as a voice coach for people of all ages!"
