Lesson Details

Classical Voice

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
My focus is to help each student find the easiest and most comfortable sound they can produce, and my goal is to always be supportive of students' individual needs so they can be confident in their progress and artistry. As someone who started out with little singing ability (an octave range, difficulty matching pitch) and who ended attending college on a music scholarship and now sings professionally and competitively, I am a firm believer that anyone can be a singer if they have the right instruction and are willing to work.

My son was excited to have a real singer as an instructor, and hasn't stopped bouncing and singing scales since! We're looking forward to growing with Mr. B's help!

I hired Bruno to help me comprehend my book for class. He showed up and genuinely cared that I was getting it. He showed me a note taking idea that to me seemed that if I just wrote a couple of ideas down I’d go back and know where I was as far as going back and studying. He asked if I needed to write this point down and basically showed how to do the job. Great work.

Mr. Barbosa is a very outgoing person who always checks in on his students before we begin the lesson. At the
beginning of the lesson, we start with warm-ups so our voice is
ready to sing high or low notes. When you first start with Mr. Bar-
bosa, he will have you sing multiple songs and scales so he can
learn your vocal range. Mr. Barbosa makes sure that you understand
the content and if you don't, he is helpful and explains it in a way we
can comprehend. Lessons are a great way to improve your singing.
I’m becoming more comfortable performing in front of my peers.

Bruno has been a great inspiration for my daughter. She's gaining confidence after every lesson. She likes the encouragement that Bruno provides. It greatly helps her to strive even harder to meet the challenges he tasks her. My daughter says, "Bruno explains things very well. He also makes you feel good about yourself".
