Professional Vocal Coaching-Taught by Disney/Universal/National Tour Vocalist and Music Director
Hello- My name is Michael Dashefsky I have worked as a performing arts professional for over 8+ years. My Training: I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre Performance from California State University Fullerton. I am a member of Actors Equity Association My Professional Experience: I have performed as a vocalist and piano player for : Disney, Universal, Holland America Cruise Line and Princess Cruise Lines. I also sang on a Broadway Style Christmas National Tour and also performed in several regional theatre productions in Southern California. I have also worked in Chicago as an assistant music supervisor for the Beatles and Shakespeare production of As You Like it where I played piano, sang, music directed and played a character in the show. I am a member of the Actors Equity Association. We can come up with an action plan to work on your current strengths and areas for improvement. All ages and all skill sets welcome. I tape every lesson and you get access to a dropbox folder with all of your sessions for further practice and growth. Why study with me? I am directly working in the performing arts industry and I am not just a teacher who solely focuses on teaching students. I am an active performer myself and I bring my experience as a professional in the industry to each student I work with to teach them industry specific techniques. Lets make some music!
About Michael D.

Hi my name is Michael- I have been lucky enough to travel to over 60+ countries singing, playing the piano and acting professionally. I have worked for Disney, Universal, Chicago Shakespeare, Princess Cruises, Holland America, and the Christmas Wonderland National Tour. I love working with new talent to help them discover their true singing voice. Through extensive warm up, vocal placement, pitch accuracy exercises and breath work, we will work towards singing with ease and confidence and build a custom warm up for your specific voice and strengths. I pride myself in being down to earth and taking the time to truly get to know my students. Unlike most instructors, I am currently a working professional and I am a member for the actors union and represented by several talent agencies. I also take the time to respond to students concerns, questions and truly wanting them to succeed. My students end up becoming extended family and I cannot wait to help you on your vocal journey. Lets make some music!
