I'm comfortable teaching all levels, ages 7 and up... I use techniques from bel canto for my singing students applied to diverse styles, be it rock, pop, jazz, R n B, etc... I'll help you improve breathing, range, interpretation, sight reading, ear training, etc... For pianist my strength are classical (legit) and jazz piano. But I play more styles like rock, top 40, salsa, merengue, pop, bossa nova, samba... I will help you improve reading, technique, improvisation...
About Axel O.

I found out early on (age of 13) that I had a facility to teach and help friends understand music concepts. Some said it's a gift, others said it's vocation. To me it was just sharing what I loved. Since I had already decided to make music my career I made it a point to learn more and all I could in this field. Three degrees later (B.M /Berklee College of Music, B.M and M.M. /University of Miami) having studied under amazing Masters and years of performing, touring, producing and recording I have a lot to offer anyone, any age, any level when they choose me as their music teacher. *** Lesson Details *** My students would describe our lessons as fun and enjoyable. That's because I want everyone to learn the basics of music in a relaxed and comfortable environment. I'm easy going and encouraging in character and make it a point to explain in the simplest manner the many concepts of music. I help students develop good habits of practice so they can improve their skills by giving them personal tips. Each student is unique and learns at a particular pace. I'm in tune with the student and move accordingly helping him/her navigate thru the music lesson while providing assistance towards reaching their specific goals. *** Studio Equipment *** Piano /keyboards/ protools in my studio with living room seating for parents. Coffee/water always complementary. Protools recording studio available for my student singers at discounted rates. Affordable and competitive rates for amateur-professional singers looking to record/produce a demo. *** Travel Equipment *** None. Currently not traveling to students homes. Lessons available at my studio only. *** Specialties *** Studied Jazz & Classical. Performed Pop, Rock, R&B and Latin musical styles.
