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.

Great 1st lesson! Looking forward to continuing and learning more

Serena isn't only a talented pianist, she's a skilled instructor as well. She teaches everything you need to understand piano theory, improve finger strength and agility and acquire the best hand posture.

Serena tailors her lessons towards her student. Depending on my weekly progress, she recommended a detailed routine to consolidate my weaknesses and push me to improve.

Finally, Serena is eloquent and friendly. She explains things in a simple manner and does her best to understand you, your lifestyle and your objectives, all to provide the best experience . And she totally nails it.

Thank you Serena! :D
Alexandria Franklin
Serena is great. She is patient but pushes you just enough to see results. She helps you with singing technique as well as with techniques to make the song more genuine and authentic.

She is a great teacher. She gave me several tips and exercises that were very helpful. She was very understanding when I had some computer glitches. Very friendly also. Highly recommend!

I want people to feel included and seen, no matter what you believe "your type" is. There's room to look and explore with your repertoire and book. You'll be surprised what you find in just going with something less well known or not known to be for you.
I want to explore what you vocal range can do but also your power and what you seek within the moments and words. I have many great tips and tricks to get you inside the room, rock an audition, or just simply figure out pieces to get you prepared and trained. I have ways to open the potential so there's less constriction and stress within your voice as well.
Even if you just want second opinions, I'm always completely open and honest, constructive to every minute. We can work on warmups and a couple pieces, or come as ready vocally warmed up and we work on pieces the entire time. OR I answer questions you might have about the unknown or what you're looking to aim towards.
Can't wait to work with the incredible super stars in the ...

Veronica Estigoy
As a trained actor but a novice to auditioning for musical theatre productions, Mike was a lifesaver to work with. I always felt insecure about not knowing how to read music, yet Mike was able to simplify and translate the intimidating material. He also helped bring out my inner self to the work. Will always go to him if I find myself in a musical pickle! Of course, what do you expect from a teacher who carries the music in his soul wherever he goes...
Maria
There have been so many times Mike has helped me with my vocals. Not only for audition prep, but even for times when I felt like I was struggling with my vocals during a show. The great thing about Mike is that he makes you feel so comfortable. Not only does he know exactly what he’s talking about, he is an excellent teacher and is incredibly encouraging as well. Any time I need an instructor, someone to help me prepare for an audition, or someone to give me feedback on a performance, he is the person I turn to.
Kayla Rodriguez
Mike is such a talented singer/teacher. For many years I have been lucky to have around when I needed someone to explain any type of music for me. They have such an ear for music, successful finding music for you within your range, and some challenging ones that they know with practice you’ll be able to sing. There loving nature and patience makes them the best instructor. Making you feel safe and warm, with a lovely smile and a voice for miles. I cannot read music but while working with mike on a personal level I was able to pick up a few tricks of the trade, while gaining confidence in my own singing abilities. All around an AMAZING person to work with.

"Nino teaches my 14-year-old daughter Paloma hip hop and break, and was amazing! He is thorough, making sure she understands the choreography, step by step. He is super patient, giving her the time she needs to absorb the moves. He builds confidence and inspires Paloma to get better and better at dancing. And he’s a lot of fun! Nino inspired Paloma so much that she’s now preparing to audition for an arts high school! And this with very little formal training beforehand. Thank you so much Nino!"

"Rebecca has been the most helpful coach I have ever worked with! Some of what she has guided me in was tricky to do online but she always finds a way to make activities work. It is a fun class, and I can tell my skills are growing a lot from working with her.

We've been doing a lot of work on accent training that is going well as she can pick up on things I didn't know existed; as well as helping me work through the little things you wouldn't think about in commercial and monologue work; as well as basic concepts that I needed more practice in.
All around great instruction."
