About Barry M.

Hello! A little about me... I have a Bachelors Degree in Music, 15 years of performing experience, and 10 years of teaching experience. I would love to share what I've learned to help you find your authentic sound. I try to approach each student individually vs treating everyone the same, catering to learning styles and willingness to learn. I hope to see you soon!

*** Lesson Details ***
I think everyone is born with the capacity to sing, with their own unique voice. I think often times we "get in our own way" and hold ourselves back from truly realizing our potential. I would love to help find your true voice so that you can do anything you want, whether it's singing in the shower or in front of thousands of adoring fans at Carnegie Hall!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Practice rooms with upright pianos.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If there is no piano, we can work from the mp3 player or a cd player and make it work!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Jazz voice, improvisation (scatting) and Broadway singing. I am also trained in Acting.

Barry was polite, insightful and wasted little time in getting to work. Truth be told I was running behind due to traffic and he was professional and patient. So far a joy to work with.

Barry is a gifted and talented individual who urges his students to step out the box. If you ever receive and opportunity to work with Barry understand you'll be put to a challenge and be expected to challenge yourself. I was able to experience and learn many things in Theater acting, Speaking voice, Singing and Music theory and I could never be more grateful for everything he passed on to me as knowledge .

Barry is amazing! He is very kind and patient. I am a vocalist seeking to gain more control over my voice. I don't feel rushed during the lessons; He really takes his time and meets you where you are. thanks Barry!!!!

Barry is a very skilled and patient teacher. He has helped me with the confidence I needed to embrace my natural voice tone. I have regained a love for singing after working with such an inspirational being. I thought that after smiling I have don't irreparable damage to my vocal chords but Barry showed me that was not the case! For that I am forever great fun! Anyone who is really serious about singing should have just one class with Barry and your ideas about the craft will be immediately transformed!

I found a whole new side to my voice as well as a performance quality in acting out a song. I highly recommend Barry!

I love working with Barry! Barry helped me (and continues to help me) overcome my fears and find my voice. He is so understanding and patient. It is obvious he loves teaching music.
