I can’t say enough wonderful things about Dan. He was even better than I expected! He is very personable and my son really enjoyed working with him. He worked hard to help meet my son’s goals and continuously kept me informed about my son’s progress.

Dan shared his own experiences with my son to help build his confidence. My son felt much more confident and prepared for his audition thanks to Dan. We are looking forward to continuing lessons with Dan. I highly recommend him!

Private Singing Teacher

I have been singing since I was a baby, according to my mother, my first music teacher. I thought it was mother's pride till I held a 10-month old baby, sang to her and she sang back to me. I have been teaching since the age of 14 and have over 40 years experience singing professionally. With my university chorus we traveled 2 months throughout the States and culminated with concerts at the Kennedy Ctr Washington D.C. & Lincoln Ctr, NY. I sing in 34 languages covering most genres from classical to musical theater, choral to folk-rock, Brasilian jazz & standards to alternative & world music. My approach is holistic, incorporating multidisciplinary subjects with lots of fun ways to learn, explore and express yourself. Tune in!

Private Singing Teacher

As a former teacher of voice at the University of Southern California and having worked with singers of all styles and levels including the voices from the Met, LaScala and Liturgical Services singing I can help you in finding your voice and expressing the music you feel.

I can teach you in any style of singing and all styles of music. My specialty is Classical Music, but a healthy foundation is a must for all music and for all singing. I will teach you how to warm up your voice professionally so that you will never hurt yourself. How to develop the power to be heard at the back of a large theater without blowing out the flame of a candle in front of you. I can teach you the art of circular breathing which is beneficial not only to players of wind instruments but also to singers as well. Control and awareness of your breathing, vocal chords and your muscles are vitally important for technique and the expression of colors in the sound your produce. This is wonderful to have ...

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.

Joseph shared his composition at the bedside of a dying man. Everyone listened and stopped crying for a moment. We were transported from the terrible tragedy into his world of beautiful music. His compassion and sensitivity of spirit touched us. When he teaches this gift to others, the world becomes a better place.

A great teacher and an amazing pianist! This was an experience of a lifetime for me. I have studied for many years but have never met anyone who can explain and demonstrate with such depth and clarity. In one lesson I learned more than I have in the past year! I am so grateful and would recommend this masterful teacher to everyone.

I have been singing professionally for almost 18 years now, plus done quite a bit of vocal recording. My experiences range from choirs to bands to a capella singing in a series of different environments. I try to work with each person to explore their strengths, plus increase their discipline.

About Joe

I absolutely love teaching music! After over 20 years of teaching, performing, writing, and recording in all styles/genres, it continues to be a great adventure. It is a joy to pass this on to others...especially seeing my students that never touched the instrument going on to be very proficient

Private Singing Classes Near You

If you've ever watched a musical, attended a karaoke party, or listened to a choir harmonize and thought, "I wish I could do that," then singing lessons are the best first step. Singing brings people together, whether in choirs, concerts or music festivals, but it also intimidates a lot of people. 

Many mistakenly believe they're tone-deaf. Although tone-deafness is a real, physical condition that prevents the brain from distinguishing different pitches, most people who believe they're tone-deaf just need more practice. In fact, only about three percent of people are truly tone-deaf. So you might as well jump in and join the chorus by signing up for voice lessons near you!

Why Take Voice Lessons Near You?

Taking singing classes near you will develop your ability to confidently participate in the joy of music, whether by joining a choir, singing at a karaoke bar, or landing a gig in the music business. Studying music with a voice coach also imparts a whole range of non-musical benefits for both adults and children. Keep reading to find out more. 

Benefits of Singing Lessons for Adults

Music is often used for healing purposes in music therapy because it imparts positive emotional and mental benefits. Adults who participate in music display sharper cognitive abilities and a better memory function. It's also been shown to improve your posture and breathing. 

Benefits of Singing Lessons for Kids

Several studies show a clear link between children who take music lessons and increased intelligence, better grades, and improved focus. Studying music uses a variety of brain processes related to reading, memory, listening, synthesizing, and coordination. 

Practicing music in childhood appears to improve mathematical ability, memory, cognitive function, and spatial intelligence. Studying music also benefits children later in life. Adults who studied music as children show a greater capacity for hearing and understanding language. 

What You'll Learn in Vocal Lessons Near You

Singing is a much more complex art than it first appears, so if you want to learn to sing, private lessons are the way to go. You'll benefit from prompt feedback and personalized instruction that you just can't get in a larger choir or simply watching video tutorials. 

A professional voice teacher will be able to see any weak points that a director of a choir or group class may not notice. This way, you’ll avoid developing bad habits that can impede your progress down the road and even lead to damaging your voice. 

In vocal lessons near you, you'll learn to match pitches, carry a tune, and more. You may also study music theory, different musical genres, or work on specific songs in order to perfect your technique. Most students will begin to hear improvement in just a couple weeks. Below, we’ll go into detail on more of the specific learning topics at each skill level. 

Sample Curriculum for Singing Lessons for Beginners

Your first voice lessons focus on evaluating your current abilities, establishing a foundation of skills, and setting you up for success. In beginner singing lessons, your vocal coach may choose to cover the following:

  • Proper posture
  • Breathing techniques
  • Vocal warm-ups
  • Vocal health
  • Tone, range, and vocal qualities
  • Intonation (matching pitches)
  • Introduction to reading music and music theory

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Singing Lessons

Intermediate singing lessons are designed to further develop your basic skills. If you already have some experience or a musical background, intermediate lessons will probably be the best choice for you. During lessons, you may work on the following:

  • Vocal exercises
  • Sight reading
  • Practice pitch changes and control
  • Introduction to vocal diction and singing pronunciation
  • Develop vocal tone
  • Develop singing technique

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Voice Lessons

In advanced lessons, voice teachers focus on improving a well-trained student’s technique, ability, and range. If you’re hoping to be a professional singer and see your name in lights someday, this is the right level for you. Advanced lessons include the following topics:

  • Improve power
  • Extend vocal range
  • Mixed voice
  • Vibrato
  • Ear training
  • Composition and songwriting
  • Audition preparation 

Regardless of your skill level, keep in mind that our private vocal teachers customize lessons to your specific interests, goals, and learning style. Lessons for adults will include more challenging practice and theory, but for younger children taking singing lessons for beginners, the curriculum will be more centered around sparking interest and making music fun.

In addition, if you’d like to focus on a particular style, we have coaches who specialize in teaching classical, jazz, opera, gospel, R&B, rock, pop and more.

Learn to Sing with a Vocal Coach Near You

When you're ready to start voice lessons, you'll need to find a qualified vocal coach near you. A simple search for singing teachers in our directory will provide a list of candidates who are available locally and online. 

You'll find a variety of vocal teachers with years of experience, both teaching and in the music industry. Our instructors are vetted and background checked to ensure you have the best learning experience possible. 

To narrow down the list, be sure to read through reviews left by other students. Before your first lesson, think about your goals for learning to sing and any special interests you have. Discuss these with your teacher so you can enjoy lessons customized to help you reach your goals!
