An Excellent Vocal Coach
"Over the years that I have known him, Anthony has developed into a fine vocal coach and teacher. He has proven to be able to apply the information that he has learned from his own studies to help his students grow as stronger performers."
Learned a lot in my first lesson!
"Anthony's instruction has helped me to experience more vocal freedom because of his emphasis on using the natural use of the breath in singing and has helped me through the story telling of the song as well. I no longer feel the need to rely on musculature to hit a note nor do I feel self-conscious about the quality of my voice. I have enjoyed a great deal of success through his teachings."
The Mark of Quality Training
âAnthony Fontana is a very talented and very professional instructor. After just a few voice lessons I have seen significant improvements in myself and gotten tangible results in performances and auditions. This is the mark of quality training."
A Superb Colleague!
"Anthony is a fantastic colleague of mine and has a deep passion and desire for teaching - it is very exciting to see how dedicated he is. I am always amazed at his insatiable curiosity and thirst to understand the voice. He is a force to be reckoned with! He is a fantastic colleague of mine and any student that is seeking to train with him is in great hands!"
