Vocal Coaching & Artist Development

I have been teaching singing for 10+ years. I've enhanced singing lessons into a complete program of vocal mastery/songwriting/production.

I am an active music artist, music production/audio engineer college graduate, "The voice" ex-participant and vocal producer with vast experience in online music marketing.

Today's music industry requires to be prepared and aware of its fundamentals. Voice mastery, digital distribution and streaming, producing, audio recording, royalties, interpretation, social media, songwriting, copyright, are all random pieces of a puzzle you must put together in order to succeed.

I've been making music for over 22 years and I've felt the pain of figuring out this puzzle by myself. I've been copyright stolen, false magic lesson invested, lousy contract scammed, paying to perform, falling short of budget, trading soul for fame and many other beauties of this industry in my journey to try to make a living out of expressing myself.

My goal today is to use my experience to shorten the learning curve of others. My scope is on keeping you focused on your craft and introducing you to technologic tools that will allow you to keep expressing yourself purely and make it a sustainable lifestyle or an empowering hobby by seeing progress and results.

FAQ

Can anyone sing?

Yes, singing is a practice that involves muscle development, coordination, and flexibility as well as musical understanding through ear training. I have effective methods to identify issues and solutions to achieve your singing goals.

How long will it take to see results?

It depends on where we stand and where we want to be. Goals should be set depending on the strengths and limits of each persons voice. The time of improvement can vary form the first lesson to years ahead depending on that goal. Normally 6 months with consistent training will get the muscles used to the exercise to perceive improvement.

Is online better than in person?

Online is bringing great benefits to my students: no cost or time of transportation, sing at your personal space, set your singing spot with the tools you need. I have identified more focus in online sessions. On the other hand, in person allows us to record at the studio and play music live.

Will you take me to stardom?

I am a professional singer with experience in major record label deals, touring, live performance, songwriting, music production and TV appearances. I made many mistakes in my career and some very good decisions as well. All I can do, if that would be the path you’re pursuing, is to cut the learning curve for you, support your efforts and warn you about the consequences of your choices.

Am I too young or too old to sing?

I’ve had 70+ years old students still achieving results as they learn that music has its logic behind it and not only raw talent. I would recommend starting lessons not earlier than 6 or 7 years old unless the kid is super interested and focused and has evident natural ease but I’ve also seen 5 year olds who have a clear vision for this. Beyond age, interest and focus makes you the best candidate for my program. Uninterested people tend to have slow if any results and goal driven people prove to have better results even if they don’t perceive themselves as naturally talented.

What genres do you teach?

I don’t teach genres, I reinforce them. I try to use the best singers I know as reference regarding technique, creativity and style but If a singer has a very unique style I try to encourage their uniqueness.

What comes after I sing well?

Songwriting, producing and releasing music. Collaborating with other people and performing live and I will assist in all those areas when we get there.

Am I too bad for singing?

I believe anyone can find themselves in music. The minute you sing to express and not to impress the game changes. It is true that some people have more ability and ease for singing, call it physical attributes or innate understanding of music but success lies in what you do with what you have and celebrating your uniqueness and identity. Not all great singers are great artists and not all great artists are great singers.

Am I too good to get a vocal coach?

Vocal coaches not necessarily are better than you. Like athlete coaches, vocal coaches are there to assist you, know about your voice status, range, capabilities and weaknesses. They assist you to find the best key for the songs you perform, keep track of your trainings, accompany your songs, assist in producing, arranging and songwriting and know you at a personal level where you can express openly. They are honest and objective with you both when you feel like you’re a voice God and when you’re feeling worthless.

Do I need to dream about stardom to get singing lessons.

No. You set your own limits. I have many clients from real estate, finance, technology and many unrelated industries which just love music, want to develop their emotional expression or simply have a personal challenge. I’ve even coached people to improve their verbal communication skills for sales. I’ve seen some impressive talents that will forever remain hidden and I respect that. (If you ever change your mind I can still help though)

About me

I have been teaching singing for 9+ years. I've enhanced singing lessons into a complete program of vocal mastery/songwriting/production with a blend of wellbeing techniques.

I am an active music artist, music production collage graduate, "The voice" ex-participant and vocal producer with vast experience in online music marketing.

Rodolfo is excellent. He knows his craft and spent the first lesson listening to my daughter sing and developing a plan that will help her become a better singer. So happy we found him!

Rodolfo is super talented and really knows what he’s doing. I had absolutely no experience with singing when I first came to him, and after not even a month I’m already noticing improvements!! He’ll make you feel comfortable and confident in your ability to become a better singer, I'm really enjoying my lessons with him :)

Rodolfo is not a music teacher but a consultant and mentor. He has coached me online for more than a year now. I am a professional singer/songwriter and he has helped me to get to the next level. From music business to marketing, songwriting, distribution and release strategy. I’d recommend him to anyone who wants to take music seriously.

Rodolfo is the best vocal coach I’ve ever had, hands down. I was invited to perform on Disney’s Freeform Network with only 2 months to prepare and needed someone take me to that next level. I was very fortunate to find Rodolfo when I did. He was able to meet me exactly where I was at and set the bar for what I could be if I worked diligently. Rodolfo takes the time to get to know his students and finds out what motivates them. He is flexible with his schedule and goes above and beyond so that your needs are met. He has a vast knowledge of singing techniques and can work with all skill levels.

I’m 35 and had never taken a single music lesson in my whole life.
A few weeks into practicing with Rodolfo, and I already see changes in technique as well as in self-awareness.

He’s a skillfull teacher, and truly sensitive for music. Through his classes, I’m realizing what type of voice I have and how I can best use it.

He takes as much time as I need with each exercise, gives me tips to practice in between classes, and even chooses songs that will work best for my voice.

My experience with Rololfo's lessons were fantastic. He is highly skilled in singing, songwriting, and vocal training. He is amazing at working with students on an individual basis, and personalizing the lessons for their goals. He is great at working at all skill levels in any area, and is able to seamlessly build up from lesson to lesson to bridge the gap from beginner to expert.

Rodolfo is as good as it gets. He is a highly experienced teacher who has been studying the voice for years. He knows the ins and outs of every component of the voice, and strictly focuses on technique, and his training regime reflects this. More so, he has worked with students all across the music spectrum in all genres, and cares GREATLY about your future as a musician, and works selflessly to help you achieve your personal goals with music. I've taken 3 lessons with Rodolfo, and my voice has improved incrementally already. LOOK NO FURTHER, trust me!

As a stage performer whose always wanted to learn how to properly sing, lessons were always on my mind. The decision to pick Rodolfo is one that I don't regret. He does a great job at interacting with students and tries to use real world examples to explain the instrument that we can't see, our vocal chords. This making the learning process much easier. He always comes set and ready with a lesson plan for the session. He also likes to check up on your progress in between session to ensure that you're executing the exercises correctly. Rodolfo is a person that cares about your success and progress. I would highly recommend him to anyone who's looking for vocal coach.
