Singing is my specialty. As the vocalist for Sony Records band Atom Smash I toured for over 1000 shows and have found tricks to keep your voice up to par while singing aggressively. Most coaches focus on classical methods that would'nt stand up to the modern market of music. Using my methods and coaching your voice will be healthier, more stylized, and you will have the stamina to play 200 shows per year like I have. Im a passionate coach that takes my students under my wing.

About Sergio S.

Hi, I'm Sergio. I am a producer/songwriter and I teach voice and guitar in Nashville, TN. Ive been teaching voice and guitar for 7 years. I was previously on Sony Records. I'm an experienced touring lead singer/musician in an internationally recognized rock band called Atom Smash. I've had several top 40 singles and a #1 Sirius/XM single. I write for both WWE & CBS. My mentor is Greg Drew, vocal coach to the stars (Avril Lavigne, Lenny Kravitz, etc.) My clients include country superstar Morgan Wallen and alternative artist Briston Maroney. Several of my clients have gone on to be finalists on Amercian Idol, the Voice and have signed record deals. Now enough about me and let’s get your passion for music rolling. I work with beginner to advanced vocalists and also have a fun lesson plans for kids as well. All ages and levels welcome. Lets take you to the next level!

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons plan is detailed and I use affective methods such as recording. At the end of every lesson, we video/record what you need to work on. It doesn't stop with technique, you will learn performance and songwriting as well. A singer will have the tools to create their own custom warmup routines. Music is supposed to be fun and expressive. Let me help you do this at the best level you can!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio room, guitar, recording equipment, seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a guitar

*** Specialties ***
Hard Rock, Blues, Country, Metal, and R&B.
I have played 1,000 shows over the years and using the skills I've learned and developed I've only had to cancel 2 shows because of losing my voice.

Great first lesson with Sergio. As a beginner, he quickly understood what I’m looking to accomplish and already gave me some useful info on making improvements. Looking very much forward to our future lessons.

As mostly a backing vocalist in my band, I needed a teacher who could take me from an intermediate level to advanced. The result is the lead singer noticing my improvements to the extent that more lead vocal parts are now being assigned to me. Sergio is patient and non-judgmental, creating a space to start wherever I am at the time and climb the ladder of skill at my own pace. His astonishing insights of the areas I was struggling with helped me laser in on them. So glad I went weekly with him for three months of improvement that would have taking me years on my own or with marginally helpful Youtubes. Go pro! Go Sergio!

I engaged Sergio to learn how to do metal vocals. I found him knowledgeable and personable, and I made a lot of progress learning from him. I would have liked to continue, but life had other plans :)

I've had 2 lessons so far and I couldn't be happier. I'm been playing for a long time but I haven't really learned how to play. Sergio teaches at a nice speed and the information is really relevant to improving my ability to navigate the fretboard. I'm actually excited about playing again. Thanks Sergio.

I always wanted to learn how to sing, but I was really nervous about singing in front of someone. Serg’s professionalism and comfortable environment immediately got rid of my nerves. Serg is a very experienced musician who has done everything from writing and performing to producing other people’s music. In just a few months, he was able to patiently teach me the correct way to sing, essential music theory, and even how to play the guitar. Me being able to pick what genres, and even songs, I wanted him to teach me was well worth my money. Whether this is your first time learning music or you are an experienced musician, I highly recommend giving Serg a call.

Sergio is very understanding when needing to reschedule. He definitely takes the time to listen to your needs and to figure out the best way to help you reach your goal. I'm definitely glad I was connected to him and would definitely recommend him to anyone.

In need of specific exercises to strengthen my voice, increase my range, and improve my tone and interval accuracy, I took a chance on takelessons.com for the first time and found Sergio S. in Mt. Juliet TN, who immediately began to help me with all of my goals. Lessons are efficient and effective because Sergio has a plan, knows how to teach the plan, and then knows how to make sure that I understand how to eliminate bad habits and replace them with correct singing and breathing techniques. In less than five lessons, I've already begun to see significant improvement in my voice.

Took 5 lessons with Sergio to get me over a playing hump. During each lesson, we worked on a specific area. Toward the end, we went over practice routine, recorded it and he supplied source material for reference. This helped me maintain rhythm, improve chord changes, and to generally have a better grasp of theory (it really helps for speedy progress in my opinion).

By any nature, you should always practice on your own as well, but he will guide you to what needs to be done to further your ambition of playing guitar, no matter the age (i'm 35).

Really great experience that was fun. Serg explained everything in a way that a nine year old could understand. For preparation for next week Serg made a video so Ashton could practice everything just like he taught him while in class.

He was the best, he took the time to understand and get to understand what exactly you want to do. And will tell you the things you need to work on in a very kind way. I would definitely recommend him to others.

My son has zero background in music with any instrument. He decided he wanted to play guitar after finding one in a yard sale. He gets intimidated very easily, but is loving the lessons. This says a lot about the approach and patience Sergio has had with him.

Sergio changed the way I sing forever. I've been a vocalist my whole life, but Sergio showed me how to control, and shape my sound so that it is unique to me. He will help you with not only the basics, but also to develop the specific style and genre you sing. I'm forever grateful to him!
