She is energetic, funny, and enthusiastic to work with her students. Our son had his first lesson tonight and enjoyed it very much,

I worked with Michelle for a little over 2 years. As an adult student, I was super nervous about singing in front of anyone - it took me this long to just sign up for lessons! She was patient with me and gave me lots of tools for dealing with my nerves and stage fright. Michelle helped me to choose songs that I not only wanted to sing but that matched my voice and range. I was hesitant about performing in a recital but Michelle pointed out that it was like training for a marathon - doing all the work but not performing just seemed silly. It wasn't perfect but it was definitely something I'm proud to have crossed off my bucket list.

I've been interested in astrology for a long time, and
finally decided to take a leap of faith and take a class.
Jennifer is a complete stranger to me, yet we started off
our first session, not as strangers, but more as a casual acquaintance. She leads, listens, and makes the class very interesting. I made the right choice.

Okay, we've worked on your voice and you have begun to show progress. Now, how do you take that to the stage?
Working through anxieties, audition specific problems, and how to choose what roles to audition for, this course is specifically for those who have performance as an end goal (especially as a soloist!)

The best!
She's intelligent, detailed, funny, and understanding. She really works with students on a personal level to ensure we are improving in a safe, efficient and fun way. I'm a beginner singer but she works with me and makes lessons structured but comfortable and enriching. I've really learned a lot from her. Highly recommend lessons with Mrs. Melissa. You won't regret it.

My name is Maryanne Dymond Fiorentino. I started taking lessons with Melissa a few weeks ago. I have to say she is a very good voice instructor. She is kind, patient, and always wanting to help keep improving my craft. She pays close to eye on any mistakes and loves what she does she is very knowledgable and easy to talk to about anything regarding the voice singing and repertoire. I would like to say I give a 1 star to the take lessons online site Melissa and I have been working together on skype which is a zillion times better in being able to communicate.

This is a subject often thought of as akin to magic! Michael Jackson gliding onto the stage, Vladimir Horowitz shuffling to the piano producing as much static electricity as the lightening bolts falling electrifying the audience at the age of their seats....

What is that secret ingredient that makes the actor on the silver screen the lead role and identifies without a doubt a relationship to the audience that can not be easily defined. Is it leadership? Self awareness of greatness with no false modesty or ego? Is it the experience the audience have had before to know this is going to be a memory of an experience they will never forget? No, it seems these fantastic individuals have that effect on the audience even before they were heard or seen or experienced in performance before. When Barishnikov leaps or walks onto the stage, that energy is a cloak around his shoulders no matter what costume he wears. That super hero cloak of amazing energy is the material we will be ...

Joseph has a wealth of knowledge about speaking, listening, vocals, etc.

He created a welcoming environment in our online lessons that made it easy to be vulnerable and get right to working on new skills.

I highly recommend for others looking to better understand their voice and communication style, and learn to hone them.
Catherine K.
Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.
Donna
I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

"I feel so honored to speak on the behalf of Christine, she has truly helped me with my own small business. I'm a professional real estate agent that enjoyed good old fashion family fun, which includes karaoke. I was never a singer, but always enjoyed singing. I figured it was worth an effort to take a few lessons with Christine and see if I liked it. Well, I loved it!

I've been enjoying music and singing every since I started taking lessons with Ms. Christine. I now give monthly dances and include karaoke with prizes; I'm a featured singer/host and it's been WONDERFUL. Never would have thought voice lessons could bring so much meaning to my life. Forever grateful. Thanks so very much :)"

"My son takes beginning band with Nick. This group of very young players is learning how to hear a piece of music, break it down, play it together, and make it their own. Along the way, Mr. Nick teaches them theory, technique, and joy in playing music. Nick has the patience of a saint. His expertise is in guitar and banjo, but he knows his way around the whole band, and can teach rhythm and technique on a wide range of instruments. I highly recommend. Note, we’ve done lessons both on line and in person. Both were good."
