I’m a male voice specialist as I only teach the male voice. With over 8 years of experience, I have a deep understanding on the many strengths and the the common pitfalls of the male voice. From child to adult, opera to pop, I believe that a strong classical foundation is the key to total vocal freedom and health. Teaching concepts from the Italian and Swedish Italian singing schools, I work with singers to maximize the range in a healthy powerful way while treating each unique voice to what it needs most. Lessons are meant to be a fun learning experience and singing, a joyful way of life. Experience the difference.

About Chaim

i always wanted to be a singer but i was born a teacher. nothing gives me greater pleasure than teaching and watching my students not only succeed but often in ways they thought were impossible. i am 32 years old and I"m a male voice specialist. i have been studying the male voice for over 8 years

I have suffered from vocal problems since I was very young. I was always hoarse and experienced frequent vocal pain. I have been to three reputable voice coaches/specialists which turned out to be a waste of time and money.
When Chaim Fisgus first heard my voice he was confident he could help me, and from the beginning I saw he was different than the others. He has a passion for voice, a professional ear, and a unique talent of teaching. He doesn't just "do" exercises, but takes the time to learn the students voice and create a more personal approach. He himself is a student of some prominent voice trainers, including David Jones.
Even after I gave up on my voice Chaim did not, and I have come a long way. For the first time in my life, I started receiving compliments on my singing. Thank you Chaim!

Chaim Fisgus is a gifted voice teacher that coaches our son Dovi. Not only is he an amazing singer, but also a kind and intuitive teacher, that brings out the best of his students’ potential.
Dovi has made amazing progress since we started, his ability to sing on pitch, keep the rhythm, and perform, has improved immensely.
Dovi looks forward to his lessons as they are also such fun, we can’t recommend him enough!!

Chaim is an exceptional voice teacher. Our son has been going to Chaim for over a year now on a weekly basis and we see the progress after each session. We would highly recommend Chaim. He is very professional, great with kids, extremely patient & friendly and very accommodating. (Eli and Faigy Baumhaft)

A typical Miss Kirk music lesson is unique because it includes movement, acting, drama, music theory, stage presence practice, singing and fun! I tailor each lesson specifically to the student. When students feel a sense of joy and excitement then learning and expertise follow.

As a public school music teacher, I believe in educating the student as a whole learner. I believe music education helps us learn not only what can be seen, such as music notation, but also what can only be felt. I believe music and the arts connect us to one another and our deepest, truest selves. I believe in music education because it helps the student recognize beauty in the world. I believe music has the power to help and heal oneself at any age. I teach music so that the world we live in becomes a more peaceful and loving place for us to live in solidarity with one another. Let me help you in this journey!

"I found Michelle and Robert on the internet, looking for a local voice instructor for my kids (ages 15 and 10). My kids were willing to give them a try and started in May 2019. Per the kids: Michelle and Robert are so kind, supportive, and have high energy; they are never bored. Mind you, going in, these kids were scared of voice lessons - they were very concerned about "opera" (or what they thought opera was). Both kids now look forward to lessons: it's fun, they get to express themselves, and they really appreciate the learning environment created by Michelle and Robert. They even learned a couple of Italian art songs. I can see their CONFIDENCE in performing/singing get stronger and more secure. I think the key is the great rapport they have with Michelle and Robert. I am delighted with the children's progress and am grateful for these great teachers."
