Finalist in Showtime at the Apollo 2017
I am a passionate, optimistic and hardworking person who loves teaching music. I believe music is a great way to express oneself. I always want my students to feel comfortable in their lessons as it is a safe place. I also encourage them to reach outside their comfort zones and challenge themselves. My experience performing and teaching has shaped me into who I am today and I have learned so much from my own mentors. I have students who take lessons for many reasons, to build technique, music therapy, or just for fun. Whatever your reason may be I hope you choose me to be your coach.
I have had the opportunity to perform on various stages all over new York city and in other states /countries. Every experience has shaped me into the individual I am today. I don't various genres and also write my own music. I have a band and are currently working on our SO to be released soon. I have worked with many individuals from various Broadway shows and who have also been on camera in tv and film. I had the opportunity to be a finalist in Showtime at the Apollo I'm 2017. I am currently in grad school to pursue a career in music education as I love teaching others the knowledge I have acquired over the years to help them be the best performer they can be!
I start off lessons with a brief chat to know your goals. I want to hear your weaknesses and strengths as a performer as well as your experience level from advanced to none. Tell me about yourself! Then I go into vocal warmups and breathing exercises to find the connection between your diaphragm and your voice. I want to know what artists and styles you are drawn too and some of the songs you have sung and or want to learn. I like to do listening activities to strengthen your ear and may even dabble into some music theory so you can learn basic knowledge on how to read music.
I want to see my students grow into the artists and individuals they want to be. I learn just as much from you as you do from me. I am very easy going guy can be firm when needed. I will give brief homework assignments to help you learn and keep up with your skills. I expect respect and for my students to out forth the effort. If I am teaching them I ask for their dedication and drive. I am open to questions and encourage my students to reach out to me. I am not only a voice teacher but a coach.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
