After Teaching voice for the past few years it's clear that one thing is universal no matter what kind of singer you are: It takes an impressive amount of courage and self awareness to be heard through song. The Voice is one of the highest form of emotional expression, taking the whole body; as the whole body is the instrument. In these lessons we will focus on breath, bring attention to tension, support, and placement of the voice. Giving you the freedom to be heard. I'm excited to work together with you to find your voice.

"The best singers are relaxed in performance. That is they have no extraneous tension. Their muscles are ready to receive the impulse necessary to fulfill action and will ripple with energy."
Kristin Linklater

My personal pedagogy is a combination of the basic technical and theoretical aspects of the instrument and what music the student is interested. It is paramount that students of all levels are learning their instrument through performing their favorite music. All necessary technical exercises can be adapted to a specific genre of music. I have many resources and a vast library of literature available for my lessons that I have compiled through my years at Berklee studying with the world's greatest bassists and theorists.

My main goal in every lesson is to be as time efficient as possible. We start with introducing new warm up exercises or new approaches to playing the instrument with confidence and facility. This is important for students of all levels so we can learn the correct ways to execute our favorite music in the most efficient way possible. From there I always spend the most time on the student's goals, like learning a new song or perhaps theory and improvisation. My ...

Excellent technical knowledge and teaching skills, and very encouraging and complimentary. Really enjoyed!!

Kandyce is beyond amazing. She is able to teach me with her experience yet let me be myself and have my own style. Her teaching has allowed me to become more confident and comfortable with my vocals, and start to learn not to just sing but ti feel the songs you’re learning. Hope to learn from her for a longtime!

I have played music for over 25 years. I studied at California State University, Northridge, where I earned a Bachelor of Music degree in performance. I have been tutoring for over ten years, teaching students of all ages and levels. It is important to me that I get to know my students on a personal level, so I can cater lessons to their individual goals/learning styles. Auditioning can be tough - one of the best things you can do for yourself is play for as many people as possible. Let me be your mock adjudicator, and we will work through ways to ease nerves and play your best!

"Very clear and passionate about the instruction he teaches! Lorenzo has won many musical competitions and is not only an exceptional violinist but also a great teacher. Taking lessons from Lorenzo has helped me be able to get in Brevards music festival program in 2019 and also make it to the semifinals in their solo competition. I would also like to add that with Lorenzo’s help I also was able make it to the finals at my universities solo competition later that year. Lorenzo is great at teaching bow technique and left hand finger technique but he is also amazing at teaching the heart and soul of the music!"

"As a young, low voice, my son was struggling with singing until he started taking lessons with Matthew. Since then, my son has developed a passion for opera and has decided to pursue a vocal performance degree in college. Matthew has not only helped him develop his voice, he has also had discussions about what to expect as a professional singer and has coached him through the college application/audition process. I can't recommend Matthew highly enough. He truly cares about his students and strives to help them achieve their own personal goals, whatever they may be."

"Fantastic Journey

I decided to take both piano and voice lessons. She has helped me in detecting areas that I needed to change. She isn't forceful or critical. She is positive yet firm. She is also very pleasant to talk to and very professional. I've been taking these lessons for two months and am planning to continue on. I also love that her location is in the heart of the city where I can get to easily. So far, I am very happy with the progress and excited about what else I can learn."

Her understanding of proper singing technique and phrasing and her ability to evoke same in her students is exemplary - in other words, I love my voice teacher, Stacey!"
