I believe that learning music is one of the greatest gifts a human being can obtain and achieve in life general. As a music instructor in voice, I believed that this wonderful natural instrument has the power to move people through the power of the text that singers must deliver efficiently during each of their performances. With that in mind, I always like to have my students achieve this valuable role. I also would like to encourage and uplift my students through the very best of their capability learning wide variety of songs while maintaining a healthy singing throughout their instructions.

About Lester F.

I am a Classical-Trained Singer hailing from the Southern California area. I graduated with a Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance at the California State University, Long Beach under the instructions of Steven Kronauer. I moved to the Boston Metropolitan area to pursue my Graduate Studies in Historical Performance in Voice at the Longy School of Music of Bard College and enhanced my training under the mentorship of Ryan Lee Turner.

Through my previous training in Undergraduate and Graduate studies, I had received voice instructions with thorough understanding of the human body and its function in singing. From the basic level of singing such as proper posture, breathing, and phonation of the voice, up to the advanced level such as interpretation of various songs and its musical aspect.

In my private lessons, I usually conduct demonstrations in my lessons and explain its reason to my students. I also frequently ask questions to my students if they feel any sensations in their body while singing, whether it may be good or bad. I usually condition and advise singers when experiencing some bad sensations in there singing. I train my aspiring students to develop muscle memory in their voice. I felt that this concept of teaching is more on point and essential for my future students to understand the concept on how our body works while we are singing and to promote vocal health for longevity in their singing.

Excellent teacher. Very aware of anatomy and how best to fix issues. Lester really allowed me to find my voice and allowed me to express myself without any strain. Highly recommend!
