Derek
Dennis has been a mentor and friend now for nearly 20 years. He is a knowledgeable and passionate advocate for the arts who gives his all to each student. Working with him is always challenging and fun.
Elizabeth
Dennis Johnson is extremely passionate and knowledgable about every topic relating to acting and voiceovers. His classes are friendly, warm, funny, inviting and are always very positive. Although his classes may be challenging, he focusses on preparing his students for the real world and is passionate about putting his student's best foot forward. A few things he covers in classes are improvisation, analyzing monologues and analyzing film. He is reliable and flexible with busy schedules and makes an effort to teach life lessons as well. I feel extremely lucky to have found him and to have access to his classes and film and voice over editing skills. He is a gem.
Christine
Working with Dennis has been incredibly beneficial to my growth as an actor. His ability to dissect a scene, work through the nuances of the character, and the sub-text and communicate this on camera with techniques that set you above the amateur actor, has helped me tremendously and opened up not only opportunities but my confidence as well. Dennis approaches the actor as a whole and understands there are parts to this whole and each part—the body, the speech, the mind—is just as important as the next. I wouldn't be the actor I am today if it weren't for Dennis.

Welcome to my studio!

As a teacher, I believe it’s my job to learn along with the student. Each student’s voice is like a fingerprint, completely unique! There is no “one size fits all” approach to discovering your voice, but I would love to help you find the techniques, exercises, and methods that best help you meet your goals!

Our job as singers is to tell a story. From my experience as a performer, I guide my students through the process of creating music that is, not only, technically proficient, but also fun, interesting; and moving.

Singing, in any style or genre, requires a solid foundation rooted in technique, emotional connection, and physical awareness. By helping you cultivate these three things, I aim to help you love your voice and share your talent with the world.

No matter what your singing goals are, you deserve to be confident in your singing! I want to help! Please reach out to me to ask questions, go over policies, or book your first lesson!

I’m excited to

I have started online singing lessons with Michaela 6 months ago and I am located in Europe. I did not expect online lessons to turn out so effective! Learning singing with Michaela is a journey to discover my voice, to learn how to use it properly and freely. She created a great space where I try, improve, and finally grow more and more confident in singing. She provides knowledge as well as good atmosphere, shares tips and focuses on the needs of the student. I wholeheartedly recommend her lessons.
Alexis
Michaela is an excellent teacher, and I highly recommend contacting her if you’re looking to learn about vocal techniques and singing! I started taking voice lessons with Michaela a few months ago and I have learned so much already. Michaela is very patient and has offered so many different tools to help me accomplish my goals. Anytime I start to feel frustrated or like I can’t do something, she offers a different technique to try to correct the problem until we find something that works for me personally. She’s also extremely versatile in her singing ability. Michaela and I have worked on country songs, pop songs; any song and any genre of music that I’ve been interested in learning Michaela has been knowledgeable and helpful with. Michaela is also super easy to get along with and just an overall very kind person which makes working with her even better!
Angela S.
Michaela is such a great teacher. She really cares about the progress of her students and makes sure the student is learning in each lesson. Very easy to work with. Michaela is an exceptional teacher because I can see a lot of improvement with my voice and find it much easier to sing Opera than before. She helped me remove the strain and expanded my range.
Michaela demonstrates exercises very well and helps you understand how singing works from different aspects - how it mechanically works and how you feel different notes and vowels. I could feel improvement very early in my lessons. Michaela can definitely help you learn how to broaden your range and have a rich sound while maintaining healthy voice/vocal cords.

My lesson plans are designed to be musical and fun. I want my students to understand the language of the music by studying their favorite bands, reading music, and understanding the theory behind it. I have a strategy for everyone starting from beginner, intermediate, to advanced. I remember playing s piano for the first time and what a struggle it was to play my favorite songs. There is a method for achieving these goals and it is different for everyone. The one thing that will allow you to succeed is having a desire to learn and a passion for music. If you have those two things then I can direct you to the right path to achieve your musical goals!

Ukulele is the perfect instrument for young students learning their first instrument. It's incredibly easy to get off the ground and start making music right away. For that reason, it's one of my favorite instruments to teach, and it's the instrument I recommend to first-time music students, even if they eventually want to switch to other instruments.

She has helped me finally understand my verb conjugations (probably because she teaches young children and can reduce the information to the simplest terms - thanks Gabrielle). She’s also patient and lovely and wonderful to work with. Honestly, I couldn’t be happier."
