Private Classical Voice Teacher

I am currently pursuing my doctoral degree at the Eastman School of Music in vocal performance and literature. I believe in empowering my students so that they can sing in all styles of music that interest them with ease and freedom. Good singing is good singing and I am comfortable teaching classical, musical theater, pop, jazz, country etc. I like to set up my students with a strong foundation for singing so that they can practice efficiently and overcome vocal obstacles without my instruction.

About Michael

Hello everyone, I am Michael - I am currently in school at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY pursuing my doctoral degree in vocal performance and literature. I have sung all over the world in operas, musicals and with professional choirs. I enjoy teaching all levels of singing and love to inspire my students to reach their full potential. Singing should be fun and it can become even more exciting when the fundamentals start to fall into place. I am a casual but professional teacher and like to tailor my teaching to each one of my students. I like to make singing a very concrete and sensation based learning experience so students can rely on more than just their ears to guide themselves. Good singing is good singing, period - any genre ,any style... it all stems from the basics and setting up a strong foundation on which t

o build the voice.

American baritone Michael most recently performed the role of Lieutenant Audebert in Silent Night by Kevin Puts with Buffalo Opera in New York. Other recent credits include: Sam in Trouble in Tahiti by Leonard Bernstein at the Aspen Opera Center, Marcello in La Boheme by Puccini in San Diego, CA and Tom in Gershiwin’s, Blue Monday with Opera de Tijuana in Mexico. Michael will return to the Aspen Opera Center this summer to sing Frederick Egerman in Sondheim’s A Little Night Music. Most recently on the concert stage he was the baritone soloist for the Monteverdi Vespro della Beata Vergine at the Cathedral of the Madeleine in Salt Lake City under the direction of Dr. Craig Jessop and Haydn’s Seasons with the Eastman Philharmonia in Rochester, NY. In 2016 Michael received the second-place award in the Palm Springs Opera Guild Rossini Competition adjudicated by the famous Rossini tenor, Rockwell Blake. Michael is currently pursuing a doctorate in music performance and literature at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY where in 2019 will sing the title role in Mozart’s Don Giovanni.

Great teacher - funny, patient and understanding. I look forward to more lessons with Michael in the future!

I started lessons with Michael having done both contemporary voice and years of choir. But prior to training with Michael, I'd never really been coached as to how to properly sing in a classical style. He's allowed me to find an entire element of my voice I didn't know I had and made it incredibly straightforward to progress. I now absolutely love singing in a way I didn't previously think I would.

Michael is knowledgeable, funny, and thoughtful. I am a wind instrumentalist, and Michael tailored voice lessons to discuss topics specifically related to my areas of experience. I would highly recommend Michael for voice lessons!

Lessons will consist of a 30 minute warm up, 20 minutes exploring classical repertoire, and 10 minutes of Music Theory and Sight Reading.

About Rebecca

My name is Rebecca and I am a Classical/ Pop singer living in New Orleans! I received my Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from Chicago College of Performing Arts , and am currently in the second year of my Master's at Loyola University New Orleans. I have sung numerous operatic roles, recitals, have appeared as the guest artist for the St.Luke's Concert Series and the Stahl Family Theater, and perform in two local New Orleans bands. In lessons, students don't only learn how to control their voices with tension free techniques, but also about the insider music industry tips and resources that are available to them. Students don't only learn the knowledge that I have collected over my 10+ years of vocal training, but also benefit by having access to the knowledge of my professors that I study with in school as I pursue higher educati

on!

I believe that singing is about so much. It is a way to express yourself, it is a way to gain confidence, and it is a wonderful discipline. I want to help you find YOUR voice. It would be so much fun to get to work with you on anything you might need: sightreading, Choral solos and music, your favorite pop of country song! Anything that interest you!

About Rosie

I am an opera singer and voice teacher. I received my bachelors in vocal performance from Oberlin Conservatory of Music, where I taught secondary lessons through the conservatory. I have performed all over the United States and in England. I am currently studying at The Eastman School of Music as a master's student.
After graduation from Oberlin, I began my private studio in Texas. My weekly lessons numbered around 60. Over the last 4 years, I have taught students with a variety of interests and goals. It is important to me to find the one thing that excites my students, be that a certain song or style, or maybe how to be more comfortable singing in their church choir. In lessons, not only do we work on vocal technique, we focus on what makes their voice unique, special, and all their own. Students will always have a new building block t

o practice each week. My intention is to inspire my students to have a discerning ear and to appreciate all that goes into making a voice work.
My students have been accepted to major college voice programs, as well as participated in competitions and summer programs around the United States.

Talvez a maior dificuldade que exista para um aluno é ter uma referência real de sua voz. Referência que engloba aspectos técnicos vocais; musicais; cênicos como também aspectos de posturas, compromisso com a carreira e com cada trabalho proposto. Hombridade. Tive a oportunidade de assim de conhecer uma das minhas melhoras referências: Luiz-Ottavio Faria. Em todas as aulas que tive pude receber um conteúdo técnico refinado, embasado e experiente pois não se tratava somente da postura vocal, da técnica ali trabalhada ou de notas certas e sim um contexto completo do que você está cantando como também interpretando. Toda aula com ele é aula para ser um artista em todos os sentidos. Grato professor e amigo. Bravíssimo por sua carreira e por sua conduta de sempre.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr Faria in Brazilian Theaters where we song a few Óperas toghether. Now I´m living in NY and I am having the opportunity to improve my technique with this excelente teacher who gets with all his profissional experience and a lot of sensitivity, explain and identify the erros of the voice and posture of the body. I can say that Mr Faria is on of the best Bass currently, as well as one of the best teacher I met. Congratulation and a lot of successs in you profession.

Mr Faria,
is a complete opera singer, with a great background and stage experience. Is awesome the way he conducts the lesson, explaining all we need, how many times we need. When he gives an example, we can feel this solid technique, and art of singing.
Thank you Maestro

Aria
"Truly a gifted singer and teacher- I have had many music instructors in my life - as a child and as an adult - she is the best of all of them - easy, thou
ghtful, kind - and oh so talented in her approach and skill ---"
...
Derek
"Melissa is not only a gifted voice teacher, but an amazing singer herself. She is also very personable and reliable. I can always count on her to help me
in a pinch, before an audition to help me with a particular song, or even help me pick out a song that is appropriate for the show for which I am auditioning. She has a large breadth of musical knowledge and experience, which makes me feel confident, and trust the notes she gives during the lesson.
Melissa's techniques with breathing and execution the best I have ever received, as a trained actor myself. Although she is extremely professional, Melissa also finds ways in making the lesson fun. I highly recommend her for both kids and adults and hope you get as much out of her classes as I have!"

"Robert Aaron Taylor

My husband and I are both musicians and have studied music for many years. We were looking for a qualified voice teacher for our da
ughter, to prepare for an important audition. She wanted to sing opera and did well learning the arias and studying various opera singers on You Tube; but sometimes her throat would hurt. She needed to learn healthy vocal techniques.

Robert immediately, gave her several exercises to develop her breathing, an increase her volume. They also worked on her diction in Italian, French and German, always enthusiastic an encouraging. Robert went above and beyond to help Ashley gain the confidence that she needed and to bring out the best in her.

We highly recommend Robert Aaron Taylor"

"Lara is the most passionate teacher I have ever had. She goes above and beyond the technical parts of singing and builds confident performers and musicia
ns. When I first started with her, I was preparing for auditioning for my high school talent show and thought I was going to pass out (or worse!) . She prepared me so well and I felt a huge change in my voice in the first week, I've been studying with her now for over 2 years and am working on preparing my auditions for college. I recommend taking lessons with Lara no matter what you're looking for, she will support you 110% and work through every single step with you. I went for one lesson and stayed for as long as I could!"
