Professionals often need help with their speaking voices; they are either "low talkers" or speak with loud monotones and bore their audiences.

Let me help you learn to modulate your speaking voice to advance your career or to help you with a speech problem.

Great teacher. Gets you started from the first lesson!

Amber is simply the best. She has a knack for determining my level and knows how far to push me in practices and recommending homework. Her experience serves her well. She is inspiring, motivating and blunt which goes a long way because she is very directed at her constructive criticism and points that need to be improved.

Amber is an amazing teacher who is kind and appreciates the student. She teaches with great passion and makes the student feel the music. I could see my son progressing already and his confidence level has gone up. He shows great interest and practices more than before!

I am not one to take the time to write a review, but my experience must be shared and voiced. I met Professor Candid in early September. Hesitant to start, she immediately provided me with the safest space to be myself, to express my doubts, and to expand on the craft of music with her guidance. She exceeded my expectations time and time again, giving me endless tips, daily practice routines that not only incorporated vocals but mind, body and soul altogether. She did not hesitate to keep me in mind throughout the week, sending me clips of artists, helping me envision my own personal voice. She is always attentive, extremely patient, and has such grace when communicating with you about everything. I have been a music student for most of my life, have been with a handful of music teachers and she is 1 out of 2 teachers that have fully created a 100% non-judgmental environment for me to grow and learn. She always has a great listening ear and always keeps in mind what your personal goals and intentions are, guiding you with any small or huge dream you have your mind set for. If you’re looking for a professor that will not give up on you, will constantly be available to help you throughout the week, someone that shares her joy, teaches you not only her limitless knowledge on music but her wisdom that will forever leave you with such joy and peace every time you end your class session with her, then do not doubt to take your lessons with her! She is the best out here! Forever giving amazing quality lessons! You won’t regret it, I promise you!

Candida is an incredible music teacher and I feel lucky to be her student.

I started taking lessons with Candida since March this year. With some background in guitar (mostly self-taught, mixed with learning from different teachers on and off), I wanted to create a more solid music foundation. I wanted not just to play guitar by following videos and tabs, but become a “musician”, that can improvise, play by ear, compose my own pieces eventually. My goals included learning how to read sheet music, training for a better ear, basic singing and piano skills. Candida created a personalized learning plan with all the above goals in mind, gave me homework each week that was catered to my strengths and interests. Her vast knowledge in music education also allowed me to learn tactics backed by research to accelerate my memory and overall learning. We focused on the following topics this year: For singing, correct placement of head voice and chest voice; practices to soften head voice in higher notes and gain a smoother transition. Ear train that focused on singing (not just listening) melodic and harmonic chords (triads and different extensions). Sheet music reading and playing for several classical pieces (Mozart, Chopin, Tchaikovsky). Basic chords voicing, cadences, inversions, and accompanying singing for some classic songs (Elton John, Cold Play for example). I was amazed at how much progress I made in just 9 months. I am able to sing confidently several songs I loved (including Bohemian Rhapsody) while accompanying myself on piano (I had only touched piano probably only 3 times before March). I also added couple of classical piano pieces into my repertoire (including a beautiful Waltz by Chopin that dumbfounded my friends). I can “hear” melodies better and locate notes with much ease. Candida also encourages her students to show their progress and perform, and I even participated in two student recitals this year, and was quite proud of the performances. I can't recommend Candida enough!
Melissa
My 11 year old worked once 45 minutes weekly with Candid for approximately 5 weeks practicing a couple English songs she was familiar with and two Portuguese songs that were new to her (she does not speak Portuguese). It was incredibly rewarding to witness her skills develop in such a short period, as well as her self-confidence and self image. She is half Brazilian, and she was so proud to relate with her Papai—Daddy—in his language. I also had the pleasure to virtually attend an online concert of Candid’s adult and younger students. Her rapport was beautiful with the patchwork of her student body—an eclectic group whose skills filled the spectrum, but whose passion burned bright as one. I highly recommend Candid as a teacher. I will note that she did classes online, and I encouraged practice between classes. She did not solely rely on the weekly classes as a means for learning and improvement. Her skills improved steadily over the five weeks with the guidance and careful coaching of Candid’s classes. Practice between classes was essential to make the most out of all Candid has to offer.

"After years of acting training in both Undergraduate and Grad School I thought I was prepped for the professional world. Unbeknownst to me, auditioning is actually a completely different skill than acting. They are related but are in no way the same. You can actually be an incredible actor who is a terrible auditioner. This is where Joe comes in--he's spent countless hours (probably close to Malcolm Gladwell's 10,000) learning the skills it takes to give not just a good, but a great and memorable audition. He can take an audition side that I'm working on and give me a completely unique take on it after seeing the script for a mere 2 minutes. His insight and creativity is uncanny, as is his ability to see holes in my game that I don't even know exist. Truthfully, every time I've had him coach me for an audition (film/TV or Theatre) I have at least gotten a callback. His ability to come up with unique and memorable ideas are enough alone to use him. I know that after he's coached me that I am nothing but prepared for what's to come. I stroll into audition rooms bursting with confidence. I cannot sing his praises enough. I feel bad for stealing his creative ideas--the ideas he comes up with for me--but hey, all the best artists steal! Use Joe!"
