Very knowledgeable. My daughter enjoy learning from him.
Isabel Z.
So far, I have had only one lesson with Dr. M., the only singing lesson I've had in my entire 66 years of a lifetime. My only regret, is that I did not take them sooner. Dr M. is patient, an expert, and motivational. What more could you ask for when working with a teacher. He thinks he can make a singer out of me; I'll have to trust his judgement. It would be awesome, if he achieves our goal.

Gary did a great job of getting me started on my first piano lesson. Learned a lot on my first day...hope I can measure up to my practice plan for the week! Bravo!
John R.
Gary's just fantastic. He has the knowledge and the attitude that makes learning both effective and fun. He's working with me to help learn the kind playing I want (mostly modern songs) but knows when to reach for other material to help learn important techniques.
Sarah
I can not say enough good things about Gary. Currently three of our children are taking online lessons with him. I will admit that I was very nervous about online lessons but Gary has been amazing. He has a way of communicating with our children, who range in age from 10-16, that gets his point across and inspires them. If you are looking for a brass teacher Gary is the one you want!

Awesome overall. Very enthusiastic and extremely helpful to our son. Highly recommended.
Laura
Keith is fantastic! He expects the highest level of preparation and performance from me at all my lessons and thus pushes me to be a better performer every time. He tailors my lessons to exactly what I need - specific work for upcoming auditions as well as more general work to expand my repertoire. His lessons are also not not limited singing coaching - he also provides coaching in acting and movement. I feel like I have presented some of my best work to auditors as a result of working with Keith! And he does all this in the friendliest manner possible so that my lessons are always a great combination of fun, hard work, and inspiration.
Yi
Keith is a knowledgeable and great teacher. He will let you feel comfortable at singing and doing all the practices and make you realize what the correct postures and things needed to make you feel confident. Also, he is pretty easy-going with scheduling and just let him know in advance and he will reschedule the class for you. Definitely recommended.

Do you LOVE to sing? Do you struggle with some parts of it, like finding your unique voice? Learn to improve your vocal range, your confidence and your enjoyment in sharing your music.

I've worked with all kinds of students and their personal goals. My syllabus covers 50 lessons with quizzes and a vast array of theory, workable exercises and the tools to open your own natural talent as well as improve challenges.

I've taught for over 25 years and had experiences all over Europe and in the Sacramento Choral Society, the Boston Pops and the Sacramento Ballet as well as performances at Carnegie Hall and countless other engagements. I have a dozen CD's with choirs I've been associated with, which only means that I've had the privilege of working with many wonderful conductors and learned at their hands.

My philosophy, is that anyone can learn to sing and enjoy doing so. It does take some dedication, a lot of excitement, sometimes some length of time to retrain your ...

"I have always loved to sing but other than some choir classes in middle and high school, I never had any formal training. I always said "someday I would love to take singing lessons". Last May, my husband bought me singing lessons with Randy as a Mother's Day gift. It's November and I am still doing it. I briefly looked over the other reviews and would absolutely agree with all the other comments about Randy's patience, humor and flexibility. He is very understanding about my limited time to practice outside of lessons and has a great balance of knowing when to push a little more and when to let me find my own way. Ultimately, though, I keep going because even though I may come into a session with the weight of the world on my shoulders, I always leave feeling lighter. And that has been a true gift for me both from my husband and from Randy."

"My 11 year-old daughter has been taking voice and piano lessons from Corinne for about two years and she loves it. Corinne is so encouraging, but doesn't push too hard, so my daughter really enjoys the lessons. For voice, Corinne is always open to letting my daughter sing the songs she's interested in, but has also broadened her interests with new and classic pieces. My daughter had taken piano before, but her skills have improved so much since she started working with Corinne. I highly recommend Corinne for voice and piano lessons!"

Start Your Singing Career in Grand Rapids, MI

By Kelsey P. - Grand Rapids Singing Teacher

My name is Kelsey, and I teach guitar and singing lessons in Grand Rapids, MI. As a voice coach, I am always encouraging my students to get out there and find places where they can start performing. This is understandably a terrifying idea to most beginners. They say, “I’m not ready yet!” or “What if I mess it up?” And the truth is, you may mess it up. But that’s not a good reason not to start trying.

Let me ask you something. Is it possible to learn how to sing without singing? Would it make sense to sign up for guitar lessons and not intend to ever pick up your guitar until you feel “ready”? The answer to both of these questions, I hope, is obvious. No.

So it is with performing. It is impossible to learn how to perform without getting yourself up on stage. And, like anything else, chances are, the first couple of times you do it, you will make mistakes. This is how we learn. You won’t be a perfect singer or guitar player before your debut performance. But guess what? That’s not required.

Grand Rapids, MI is my home town and the place where I am proud to teach my 35 or so voice and guitar students every week. Many musicians choose to relocate to more well-known, artsy places to launch their performance careers like L.A, Nashville, or Boston. But Grand Rapids has plenty of opportunities to get your feet wet and then some as an aspiring performer.

Open Mics Grand Rapids has a plethora of open mic nights. Some of them are great experiences, and some of them make you want to crawl into a hole and never get on stage again. When you check out an open mic, make sure you check out lots of reviews before you go and always bring a support group of friends and family who want to see you succeed! My top picks are Tuesday nights at Founders Brewing (great food and a good crowd), and Friday nights at Lantern Coffee Bar & Lounge (a more intimate setting and really good coffee). I have personally played both of these open mics and can say with confidence that you will have a good experience. There are so many others to check out, so do some Googling and read some reviews, and plan out your performance practice!

Gigs Once you and/or your band have played many open mics, talent shows, coffee houses, and the like, and you feel a bit more confident in your set, you can venture out to some more professional gigs and start getting the word out there! Some of my local favorites are One Trick Pony, Founders, and college campus coffee houses like Aquinas College, Calvin College, and Cornerstone University. I like these venues because they are a bit more family oriented; that’s just my preference. They treat the artist well, and will pay you a fair amount for your talent and time. If you’re involved in a church, this may also be a great place to set up a gig.

Listen and Learn No matter what level you’re at in your singing lessons in Grand Rapids, you should always be attending concerts of other artists and learning whatever you can. One of the best ways to check out local music is to check out Local Spins Live at Speak EZ Lounge on Wednesday nights, and you can check out Local Spins Live blog for reviews on local artists to find out when your favorites are playing!

The most important thing to remember is that you won’t become a performer until you start performing! Find some venues that welcome beginners like local open mics. Then, branch out to more professional venues once you’ve got your groove. And always find shows to attend so you can listen and learn how to get better!

Have fun!

How "Breathy Voice" is Created | The Danger of Breathy Singing

Singing in a “breathy voice” has a mixed reputation among singers and educators, and for good reason: it can be risky. In this article, we’ll discuss the mechanics of singing with a breathy voice, if it’s harmful, and how use to the technique safely. Remember the spectacularly cheesy film “A Walk to Remember”? In this 2002 film, Mandy Moore sings a pop ballad called “Only Hope” using excessive breathiness to create a fragile, emotionally charged aura for her character. …
