Lesson Details

Singing

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

I view our voice as the most powerful tool we have. From speaking to singing, our voice is what connects us with those around us. I take a holistic, dynamic, and singer-specific approach that is well grounded in the enduring bel canto technique to enable singers to access the full palette of expressive capabilities in their individual instrument. Whether you are looking to be on Broadway, sing at the Met, improve the clarity and presence of your speaking voice, or just want to sound better in the shower, I can help you access the beauty and power within your own voice, As you learn the many tools professional vocalists use, you will be free to sing in any style at any venue with confidence, and will have a blast doing it!

I am a baritone who loves all vocal music from Pop to Musical Theatre to Opera. I have sung all over the U.S. and Europe in Musicals and Operas, and I love sharing my joy of singing with my students.

I have experience teaching classical, musical theatre, pop, worship, and country styles, and love helping students to gain the facility, strength, and artistry inherent in your own voice. I have no interest in making you sound like anything other than yourself--healthfully!

I hold a Master of Music degree in classical voice performance from the Manhattan School of Music and a Bachelor of Music in Voice and Opera Performance - Honors from Northwestern University.

Michael is a fantastic teacher. He is patient and knowledgeable. He clearly describes concepts and technique with a friendly tone, and goes above and beyond in his explanations. I would highly recommend him to anyone of any skill level.
