As a professional teaching artist and vocal coach, I have been helping students of all ages and abilities find their voice for over 20 years. My goal is simple: to give you singing lessons that will change your life forever. You can uncover your voice, build unshakable confidence and have fun while learning techniques professional singers take onto the stage and into the studio. And, you can have a great time doing it!

About Michele Denise
As a professional teaching artist and vocal coach, I have been helping students of all ages and abilities find their voice for over 20 years. My goal is simple: to give you singing lessons that will change your life forever. You can build unshakable confidence and have fun while learning techniques professional singers take onto the stage and into the studio. And, you can have a great time doing it!

About my vocal lessons/coaching:
Most students come into lessons with the same question: "Am I any good? Is there hope for me?" Well, here's the thing... The vast majority of professional vocalists never went to school for singing! Most professional vocalists had family and friends that told them they were talented and that they should pursue singing. Most professional vocalists started out copying the sound of other recording artists
, struggling for years to find their own unique voice.

The KEY difference between professional vocalists and average singers is (9 times out of 10) the presence of an influential teacher/mentor!

The right teacher/mentor pushes you to grow continuously; beyond what you think is possible. The right teacher/mentor has wisdom and information to share from inside the music industry. The right teacher/mentor genuinely cares about you as a person.

I teach so that I can be that life-changing mentor for my students, giving them that missing link for success.

About me:
I grew up in NYC and "cut my teeth" across a variety of genres: rock, jazz, R&B, gospel and choral/classical. You name it; I've sung it. In addition to being a vocal coach, I travel the nation as a musician/performing artist, professional speaker and author. Please take a moment to watch the video clip below.

Unlike most teachers that take on any/all students, I limit my roster to 15 students at any given time. During our first few lessons, I commit to offering you honest and professional feedback about your strengths and weaknesses. I want to help YOU find YOUR own voice. I want to take a look at YOUR goals, YOUR dreams, and figure out what makes you tick.

During lessons, I draw on my dual B.A. degree in vocal performance & music business as well as industry experience. I offer insights on what works and what doesn't as a vocalist, whether you are looking to pursue singing vocationally or just as a hobby.

I can help you:
- Stop feeling nervous
- Develop impeccable technique
- Learn the “ins and outs” of being in the music business
- Assemble a press kit, record a demo and start to get gigs
- Much more!

I would love the opportunity to meet you and hear where you want your singing to take you. Please, get in touch!

Other Notes:

Studio Equipment:
I teach out of my residence-based studio in downtown Minneapolis. It's centrally located with free parking and easy access to skyways and public transportation. Do you work downtown? Consider taking lessons over your lunch break!

I have everything we need for lessons in my studio: instruments, laptop, mics, etc... I will provide you with all audio files and any written materials for our lessons.

Michele is not just a very gifted teacher, but a coach/mentor who truly understands my individual vocal abilities and how to get me to the next level. I am a Jazz Vocalist in my country and have been taking lessons with Michele through Skype for some months now. With all the skills and knowledge I have gained from doing her classes so far, I have propelled into a professional singer where I am sought out to perform at different events. A couple months ago, I had performed at a tourism awards event in my country -a huge event- and it was the first time in all my years of performing anywhere that I got standing ovation with people screaming while I performed. I can tell you it is such a gratifying feeling when people show that level of respect and love. In past years I did get nice comments after I performed, but never at this level. I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who truly wants to grow in their musical journey.

Los Angeles, CA

I teach "Mix" - which is a vocal technique which teaches singers to transition smoothly from chest voice to head voice and receive the full benefits of "both voices": the natural and powerful sound of the chest voice, and the range of the head voice.
Mix can be used for any style of music.

About Radina
I am a dedicated vocal coach, musician, singer, songwriter and founder of "Vocals on Stage".
At the age of 6 I started playing Cello and discovered my passion for music but my main focus quickly became the instrument voice. I studied for years at the Unique Voice Studios - a private school for contemporary singing in Vienna and have studied Jazz vocals at the Schubert Conservatory in Vienna as well as private vocal coaches Rocio Guitard, Romana Caren Lakinger, Sandy Cressman, Monika Ballwein and others.
I have a Master of Science Degree from the University of Vienna and speak English, German, Bulgarian and French.

Since 2005 I have been studying and teaching "Mix" - a vocal technique which teaches students how to transition smoothly between chest voice and head voice and receive the full benefits of “both worlds”: the natural and p
owerful sound of the chest voice, and the beauty and range of the head voice.
I teach contemporary music, Pop, Rock, Soul, Blues, Jazz, R'n'B, Country and Musical.
For the past 8 years I have been working as a vocal instructor in Vienna, San Francisco and Los Angeles, giving private and group lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
During a lesson we will work half of the time on technical exercises and half of the time on a song which the student can choose or I will make a recommendation.
All lessons are recorded and given to the student to conveniently practice at home between each lesson.

Music styles thought: Pop, Rock, Musical Theater, Soul, Country, R'n'B, Blues, Jazz

Working with Radina is such a pleasure! She is extremely patient and kind. I truly enjoy the different methods she provides to help me improve my voice. Another great thing is her recorded lessons. I can always go back and review our lesson and go over things I needed help with using the recordings. She's also incredibly flexible with my hectic schedule, which is such a huge plus! I highly recommend her. Thank you so much for everything, Radina. You're amazing!

This is it!

I've been taking lessons with Radina for a few months and I'm super happy with the progress I've made so far. I didn't know anything about head voice, chest voice, mix and now it's all starting to make sense. I'm not afraid to sing higher notes which I always wanted to be able to do!

Radina is a highly professional and nice teacher, she really understands what is going on in a singers voice and mind and she hears everything.

I always look forward to my next lesson :)

We will do vocal exercises to warm up, extend your range, and improve the quality of your tone. I use a variety of techniques that are applicable to the styles of pop, rock, opera, musical theater and jazz - pretty much every genre! I will work with with you on material that you are inspired to sing, both the technical and creative aspects. In addition, I can help you prepare for auditions, build your repertoire or get your material ready for an important gig!

About Lynn
I have been studying voice and piano and performing on stage in various capacities since I was a small child, acting professionally on stage, in films and TV for most of my adult life. I've been blessed to study with countless music luminaries in varying genres, from jazz and classical to rock n' roll and blues.

I studied music at the university level both at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA and The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in NYC. I received my BFA in Jazz Vocal Performance from The New School in 2008. I was given an incredible foundation in ear-training, music theory, composition, arranging and song-writing through these institutions.

My diverse music education and experience means I am able to teach music in many different styles and music of many different genres. I can accompany my students on piano a
nd help them to prepare for auditions. I can teach how to read music, to play classically on the piano, to read jazz charts, or help you figure out parts for a chord progression for a pop or rock song.

My acting training is equally many-faceted and I have an incredibly strong foundation based in the teachings of Sanford Meisner, Stanislavsky, Lee Strasberg and Larry Moss. I use the knowledge of these great teachers along with the wisdom I've accumulated from MY mentors over the years in my teaching and coaching.

Lynn is stellar. Her background and training are substantial and impressive. She is prompt, courteous, calm and absolutely wonderful with our daughter (Age 9) who has challenges focusing and staying on task. Lynn is kind, but navigates the lessons confidently, fluidly and with a focused energy. She works with our daughter's playfulness, incorporates humor and positive, encouraging energy into every lesson. Our daughter has shown signs of great improvement with Lynn. Lynn assigns tasks and practicing points each week for our daughter to work on which are balanced and also bring in a component of improvisation, which is SO helpful for kids who have challenges with focusing. Lynn is awesome, highly recommend!

Brooklyn, NY

JdC Voice is a singularly run vocal studio in Brooklyn, New York. It's founder, Jenisa de Castro, is passionate about teaching singing techniques that strive towards discovering the unknown. Each voice is different, and unique, and it is our job to uncover the mystery and fly beyond what we think we are capable of.

As a graduate of New York University's Tisch School of the Arts with a major in Drama, Jenisa has discovered much about her own voice, and has continued to study and explore with renowned vocal instructors such as Seth Riggs, Michael Goodrich, and her own father, Gregg de Castro.

JdC Voice is dedicated to providing quality lessons for any age that guarantee optimal growth and success in singing in any style. We are proud to offer a space that is patient, kind, but most importantly, fun!

About JdC
Please contact JdC Voice for availability.

Founder, Jenisa de Castro began vocal and dance lessons when she was only six years old, becoming a professional Polynesian performer at the age of 12. She quickly became entranced with the world of theater and film and discovered that nothing provides the spiritual fulfillment that comes with exploring the life of someone else, experiencing the world through their unique perspective, if only for a short while. After four rigorous years at NYU Tisch School of the Arts, where she earned a degree in drama, she found that, in addition to theater and film, there is personal fulfillment in any form of art, as long as you invest your whole self into the process. This discovery led Jenisa back to where she started: a small voice studio - but, now Jenisa assumes the role of teacher, eager to share her
gifts and insights with students of her own.

Jenisa is enthralled and inspired by the sheer amount of different voices that come to her, as well as the unique abilities of each student. She believes that learning from her students is an integral aspect of being an effective teacher and discovers more about humanity, as well as herself and her own voice, with each student she has the privilege of working alongside. Jenisa is eager to teach others, both in building a solid technical foundation, as well as to share the joy and fulfillment that she, herself, feels when she sings from within.

Strategies for Sight Singing
It may seem like instrumentalists have it much easier when it comes to sight reading music; by simply pressing a key or a string, the notes are immediately available to them without any additional thought, and all that’s left to them is to work out duration, dynamics, and tempo. Singers, on the other hand, don't have an instrument to rely on. Taking a song previously unknown to you and delivering a reasonably accurate performance the very first run-through isn’t a talent that everybody has.
