Jordan M.

Seattle, WA

Lessons begin with stretching, vocal warm ups, scales, and extensive breath work, as well as resolving any tensions that may be hindering your vocal production. I then through collaboration with the student, work on beginning repertoire that is suited for the voice, and challenging at the same time. I record all lessons, and email them to the student so that one has the opportunity to review the warm ups, and hear the improvement in the voice, I also write a review of every lesson, with notated warm-ups and a list of "To Do's" for the week so that the student will have a structured practice week. I provide music, and if needed recordings of the pieces so that the student can take the materials back to their homes and practice them on their own.

Lessons begin with stretching, vocal warm ups, scales, and extensive breath work, as well as resolving any tensions that may be hindering your vocal production. I then through collaboration with the student, work on beginning repertoire that is suited for the voice, and challenging at the same time. I record all lessons, and email them to the student so that one has the opportunity to review the warm ups, and hear the improvement in the voice, I also write a review of every lesson, with notated warm-ups and a list of "To Do's" for the week so that the student will have a structured practice week. I provide music, and if needed recordings of the pieces so that the student can take the materials back to their homes and practice them on their own.

I track the range of the voice, and usually within a month it will have improved by at least 4 notes either higher or lower.

For some students learning music is just as much a part of the lesson as learning to sing. I love teaching people of all ages how to read music, so that the student can be an independent teacher for themselves and learn music on their own at home, this I think is very important in order to improve skills for singing, the faster the student can learn music, the more time can be spent working on technique and improving the sound of the voice.

It is important to note that learning voice is a highly individualized journey, each person will have their own set of strengths and weaknesses, as a teacher it is my job to asses this in a person and craft a curriculum, and style that will fit those individual needs.

There is no feeling in the world than the freedom and beauty of singing, it is a joy to hear in my students, and very fulfilling to teach this kind of wonderfully positive experience to people of all ages!

I received my B.A. in vocal performance from San Francisco Conservatory of Music in 2009. I am a classically trained singer, however I enjoy all genre’s of music and firmly believe having a classical base in a singing technique will enrich any style of music you wish to work toward. I am devoted to healthy singing, and unlocking your true timbre and voice with extensive breath, and vowel work. As a graduate from a highly competitive music institution I can help in guiding students along the right path of pursuing this art form at a collegiate level.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a recording device, a piano and keyboard, a music stand, lots of music of all genres, a copier/printer, as well as access to making recordings of pieces so that the student can take it home (whether that is CD's or Mp3's).

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a recording device, piano, keyboard, piano accompaniment (usually a recording), as well as copies of music.

If I travel to a lesson they would have to have a piano or keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in unlocking an individuals true singing voice,

Jordan has given me nothing but positive experiences. I came in with enormous apprehensions and insecurities about singing; in only a few lessons, she made me feel comfortable and confident. I noticed remarkable improvements from the very first day. Any time I hit a wall, she knew exactly how to bypass them and keep me encouraged. Most importantly, she is exceptionally flexible and devoted to you as the student. Lessons feel catered to your own development and she is always willing to work with you on scheduling. As well, she is quite amiable and pleasant to work with. I distinctly recommend her to any student of any style.

About Matthew

Hi.. My name is Matt. I'm a very energetic, friendly, understanding & passionate music coach who has worked with students & clientele throughout the US. Possessing more than 25 years of music training & music industry experience, I've been able to take people's Playing to amazing levels.

I've networked and/or shared the stage with many famous NW music legends:

You got to know the rules 1st, before you can then break the rules. This is how you develop your own unique style. And it's what separates the Pro Players from the rest of the pack.

I welcome every level and style. I always learn something from my students.
That's what music is all about. Learning & trading tips and licks from other musicians.

Let me be the Music Coach to get you there!

My daughter has been performing vocal lessons with Mathew over the last 7 months and I must say both my daughter and I have thoroughly enjoyed our time with Mathew learning the finer details of singing. Mathew has great knowledge in all areas of music and has helped my daughter grow as a singer. He is patient, detailed and connects well with my child. I would also add that he has also been more than flexable with rescheduing lessons when needed, which has made our experience even more rewarding. (: Kids and their sport!

Lake Stevens, WA

With voice, I have studied and incorporate the Alexander Technique into my teaching -- which works on proper posture through upper spinal control for better natural timbre and breath support.

I have also studied and incorporate the Bel Canto vocal techniques which involve modifying the vowel your singing depending on the pitch you are singing to gain maximum resonance.

Excellent in both instruments and voice

I took voice lessons from Michael C. and he was very easy to work with. He always provided excellent feedback and knew my strengths and weaknesses and where to focus. He provided each week a lesson with detailed tasks and wanted to keep me on track. He didn't waste any time and was prompt and professional in all dealings. I highly recommend him.

This Berklee grad knows his stuff!

I had already been playing guitar for about 10 years or so by the time I started taking lessons with Michael (so definitely not a beginner), and although my playing techniques were already pretty decent, I knew my knowledge of music theory paled in comparison and needed some work. Michael was able to easily assess where I was at and start me on a path of further music enlightenment. Before the end of my first lesson, it became clear just how much I had to learn and that Michael's musical prowess went beyond what he was teaching me.

Rather than just giving me pre-made handouts, Michael would have blank manuscript paper with which he would walk me through the theory as he was writing it out. This was extremely helpful in understanding the lesson. Michael can be flexible with his lesson plans, so if there's something specific you want to get into, he will teach if he feels you're ready.

Michael’s extensive knowledge of music theory was a big help in developing me more as a songwriter and composer. Even if you’re already an advanced player, I would definitely recommend this teacher if you are looking to broaden your musical literacy.

I specialize in finding the student's unique voice, and helping them to understand its natural operation in order to set it free to be used in any style they choose to sing. The Italian Bel Canto method describes the basic singing technique, and is the foundation from which a healthy and versatile voice can be developed. My upcoming book, "All God's Chillun' Got A Voice" How To Find It, and Release It As A Creative Tool”, discusses both the technical and esoteric sides of the singing voice, its operation and purposes.

Larry's dedication to his students is unbeatable. He is determined to find the best way to teach each student, and changes his tactics for each individual singer to make sure they are getting the most out of their lesson and having fun while improving quickly. I work in the musical theatre industry and have filmed audition videos with Larry, done audition prep, and worked general singing technique and have found him to be loyal, encouraging, and extremely talented. He believes in his students and the results show!

Larry is very talented in keeping students engaged and best of all his teaching style is molded around the students needs. Since starting with Larry I have delved into so many different styles including Broadway, classical, blues, rock, music performance, songwriting, and even audition prep. Over the past fourteen years Larry hasn't just become my vocal teacher, he has become a lifelong friend, and I look forward to every lesson I have with him.
