Legit, one of the coolest people I've ever known. Deeply vested in getting you where you want to be. Eric helped me identify exactly where I wanted to go and a game plan to get to there. While our focus has always been voice, we've touched on guitar and even music in general (theory, production, business, etc.). If you've got a question, Eric has answers or deets on where to find them. He helped me organize and focus years of experience and practice into an effective and fun program, both in the studio and back home. Best part: dude leads by example. Rock on! \m/

Val is amazing! He helped me achieve breath control and resonance with voice drills. He is a wizard on the piano - can transcribe any song into different keys. Lastly he is an encouraging coach and tutor and can help you get to the next level if you want it. I highly recommend.

Vocal Coaching & Artist Development

I have been teaching singing for 10+ years. I've enhanced singing lessons into a complete program of vocal mastery/songwriting/production.

I am an active music artist, music production/audio engineer college graduate, "The voice" ex-participant and vocal producer with vast experience in online music marketing.

Today's music industry requires to be prepared and aware of its fundamentals. Voice mastery, digital distribution and streaming, producing, audio recording, royalties, interpretation, social media, songwriting, copyright, are all random pieces of a puzzle you must put together in order to succeed.

I've been making music for over 22 years and I've felt the pain of figuring out this puzzle by myself. I've been copyright stolen, false magic lesson invested, lousy contract scammed, paying to perform, falling short of budget, trading soul for fame and many other beauties of this industry in my journey to try to make a living out of ...

Rodolfo is amazing. I started with singing and after 6 months we started writing my songs together. We produced my idea and he is teaching me how to put my music on Spotify soon.

He knows how to keep you motivated and focus. Thanks for all this time together man!

Singing Lessons

Singing lessons are one of the best ways to increase your confidence and lead the way to singing opportunities, either professionally or as a hobby. Our teachers are here to help you whether you are a complete beginner or are looking to improve on your current vocal skills.

Singing is a much more complex art than it first appears. It is near impossible to learn proficiently when just singing along to songs or looking at online resources. Private singing lessons will give you total attention from your vocal coach, in order for you to improve your voice quickly and effectively. Your voice teacher will also be able to see any weak points that a trainer of a choir or group class may not notice. This way, you will avoid developing bad habits that might impede your progress.

In your voice lessons, you will learn how to warm up, extend your range and strengthen you vocal cords just like professional singers. You will work on specific songs in order to perfect your singing, and most students will hear improvement in just a couple weeks.

Our certified vocal instructors are all experts in their field and can teach any level. We will find you a teacher who best suits your requirements, and your lessons will be customized to fit your needs and goals. If you would like to focus on a particular style, we have coaches who specialize in teaching modern, jazz, opera, gospel, R&B, rock, pop and more.

Singing Lessons for Kids

When should kids start taking singing lessons? There's no single correct answer for this. However, it's more important that a child loves to sing and develops a passion for getting better at it than it is for him or her to get a private vocal coach. Kids have unique learning needs, so if you do decide to hire someone, the vocal coach should offer tailored vocal techniques and exercises, as not to put too much pressure on a child. The worst thing you can do is over-coach, and negate the child's passion.

In addition to nurturing a child's passion for singing, it's important to keep his or her voice healthy as they grow and get stronger vocals. The main purpose of children's singing lessons is to make the learning process fun. As a student begins to enjoy the learning and improvement process, the instructor can work on advancing the fundamentals, techniques, and practice of singing.

Singing Lessons for Teens

TakeLessons also offers vocal coaching for teenagers who tend to be the most receptive to learning and improvement. As a teenager experiences the changes that result from puberty, their motivation, their techniques, their overall ability and potential for development drastically improves.

As a child matures into a teenager, it becomes increasingly more important for them to get private lessons, because this is when they can realize they can pursue a career - full-time or part-time gigs - in singing. Having a well-seasoned instructor coach the teen and give him or her the right guidance and support can help make their hopes of singing for a living more practical and realistic. A good coach can refer the student to the right information and people resources.

Singing Lessons for Adults & Seniors

It's never too late to get private lessons in order to cultivate your love for singing. It's never too late to pursue a career in singing. Our coaches can help adults and seniors take their singing skills to the next level so that they can earn paid gigs at bars, parties and weddings, or even teach singing as a private instructor.

Most adults are too busy with family and career to dedicate as much time to learning or improving their voice like when they were younger, so a private coach can help accelerate their learning in the limited time they have. Senior citizens can also benefit from singing lessons as a way to maximize enjoyment as they settle into retirement.

A new study on the long-term benefits of music lessons reports that older adults who took lessons at a young age process the sounds of speech faster than those who did not, regardless of whether it was a violin, a harmonica, a ukulele, or any other instrument.

The study found that participants who had four to 14 years of musical training had faster responses to speech sounds than participants without any training — even though no one in the first group had played an instrument for about 40 years.

Another study showed that practicing a musical instrument can slow down the aging process. The study of adults ranging from ages 60 to 83 revealed that those who played music regularly had better verbal and non-verbal memory, verbal fluency, visuomotor speed, and cognitive flexibility.

Even if you’ve never played a musical instrument or shown any interest, it’s never too late to start. Even latecomers can fall in love with something as timeless as the Violin. Age isn’t a relevant factor, when it comes to curiosity, pleasure, and determination.
