I am a graduate of the Manhattan School of Music and I am here to share my knowledge of technique and style. I have been studying voice for almost 9 years with some of the finest teachers in the country. My method is straightforward, intuitive, and gets great results. My goal is to give you the tools to unlock your voice and sing joyfully with confidence!

About Samuel W.

I am comfortable teaching many styles of music and singing, namely opera, music theatre, country, and R&B. I will fine-tune your voice to fit the style of singing. After all, technique only exists to serve the style of the music in a healthy and beautiful manner. I grew up on these types of music and I understand the vocal demands of each one of them very well. I sing them all the time!

I am an experienced singer and I know the voice well. I understand its potential and its limitations. If you take lessons with me I will not only improve your singing, but I will also improve your vocal intuition. I will give you the tools to self-diagnose your vocal problems with good technique. Learning how to sing with good technique can be a difficult process, but I have had many teachers and perspectives on teaching voice. With these, I can teach you to sing in a way that you will understand and find fulfilling.

I've had a great experience working with Samuel. He took time to understand my musical and personal goals, and then struck a great balance of finding my comfort zone and pushing me forward. He's an experienced performer that has a great knowledge of repertoire for all voices, too. I would highly recommend lessons with him!

Sammy took the time to understand my exact range and current abilities. Because of this he was able to give me some great starting exercises which were specifically tailored to my current abilities and natural vocal characteristics.

Also, the lesson was fun and he was very animated and put words and visual understanding to vocal concepts in a way that was fascinating and helpful. I've had lessons before but his education and experience really stood out in the way he understands the biology and process. We will be meeting again for sure!

Samuel is an excellent teacher! I have performed in singing groups for several years but never had formal training. I highly recommend Samuel for singers of every level looking to work on their vocal technique.
