Lesson Details

Broadway Singing

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I address classes according to student's needs and interests. Fun, instructive, creative and with a strong sense of good taste while performing. My interest is to guide students to find their personalities while doing what they like the most. With about 12 years of experience in the field, it is vital to me to create a connection with my students, so they can understand the depth of the knowledge I teach by passion. I would like to offer exposure for those ones interested, and I like to record and produce my students, so they can appreciate progress and to take proud of their achievements. Music creates and shapes personalities. It develops the inner world and can become a powerful tool in these times that run. We all need music, is not a lie. We all were born with its MAGIC!

Teaching since:
2005

I am a professional Pianist, Composer, Choir Conductor, and Vocalist who also write songs, orchestrate, and make arrangements. Cuban who studied primarily in Cuba (ENA and ISA), and finished studying in the USA. I have played in several important Concert Halls, among them, it is included Carnegie Hall in NY. I have worked on several projects including music for TV and Musical Theater.

Even though I studied Classical Piano, I love Pop Music, Jazz, and I am always open to new genres, as long it is done with good taste and makes a positive impact on others. Creative, fun, professional and knowledgeable is the way I define my ART.

I have won several awards since I was younger after starting studying music at the age of 15, and since then I have had an intense career performing and creating music for endless different projects, such as playing music alive for a play, composing music for Symphonic Orchestra, Contemporary music for different formats (like piano, violin, and clarinet), or even Musical Theater.

Teaching is one of my passions, and I have seen some of my students to be successful in National Musical Contests, such in Jazz in WorldStrides on Stage in New York City.

Waldo is an excellent instructor, very attentive, patient and is helping me a lot with the theoretical part, which is my main goal with the classes. Strongly recommend him, also because he's teaching me how to sing (which I'm terrible btw LOL) as a bonus.

My 8 year old son had his second lesson and it is looking promising! Waldo is able to capture his attention and motivate him to learn! My kid is quick to tell you when he doesn’t want to do something anymore and when it comes to his piano lesson he’s ready to go! Looking forward to seeing his progression and love for music grow! I think we have the right teacher!
