Find Your Singing Voice with a 45+ year experienced Teacher/Performer/Musician/Music Director
I love teaching voice and piano, and over these many years I have had the privilege of working with hundreds of students, from 5-yrs-old to 65-yrs-old, helping them to achieve their musical goals: for budding pianists in teaching them how to play or for seasoned professionals helping them to improve their playing/reading skills. The same goes for voice/singing lessons: learning or reinforcing all the skills it takes to be a singer and applying them to song to create our version of “magic!” I take what I've learned and experienced for these past 45+ years and apply that to a fun and productive learning environment. Most importantly, I love seeing the looks on my student's faces when they realize the improvements that they've made through our time together and their hard work. Their accomplishments, either finally mastering a piano piece that we've been slaving over, or breaking through a vocal brick wall that's been in our way from achieving that goal. There are very few things in life more beautiful than witnessing this kind of success; it's just a great feeling that we share and celebrate. I started playing piano at the age of 10ish, starting acting/singing on stage at 11, and began working as a professional musician when I was about 13-yrs-old. I've been teaching privately for over 40 years, and have been a Music Director/Accompanist for over thirty-years for school, community and professional theater, and as well as several current and past Broadway stars.

I love teaching Voice and Piano, and over these many years I have had the privilege of working with hundreds of students young and old alike, from 5-yrs-old to 65-yrs-old, helping them to achieve their musical goals: for budding pianists, teaching them how to play or for more seasoned professionals, helping them to improve their playing/reading skills.

What you should know about me is that music has truly been the biggest and longest part of my life. I started playing piano at the age of 10ish, starting acting/singing on stage in school in 6th grade, and began working as a professional musician when I was about 13-yrs-old. As a pianist/keyboardist and singer, I worked every gig and venue possible: weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, Sweet 16's, proms, birthdays and anniversaries, dive bars, restaurants, high-end nite clubs like the Palladium NYC, concert venues including Lincoln Center and the Central Park Band Shell, street festivals . . . anything you could think of. I've been a Music Director/Accompanist for thirty-years for school, community and professional theater, and most recently with several current and past Broadway stars. It's all this combined experience that gives me a huge edge over many other teachers as I have put everything I teach into practice and then some. Additionally, I use professional recording equipment in my home studio for which to make demos, backing tracks CD’s for auditions and performances, and recordings that my student can use as a learning tool or to play for friends and family (maybe there’s another YouTube star in you?!) Some of my students even recorded holiday albums as gifts! Also, I have access to an enormous library of music that helps us to expand our repertoire.

Marty is the best! I have been going to him for voice lessons since April 2019, and I can say with confidence that I am a better performer and person because of him. He tailors the exercises done in lesson to each students’ abilities/struggles and gives helpful and clear feedback. He provides a 15 minute vocal track to practice daily and helps you choose really fun songs to work on. He teaches almost any singing style you can imagine, but I go to him for musical theater style singing lessons. I always have such a great time singing with him and I’ve learned so much in these two years. Beyond that, he is such an incredible and down to earth person. I think any performer or human being can learn from Marty. He is just truly the Greatest of All Time.

Marty was a lot of fun to work with and completely changed my vocal ability and helped give me more confidence in my talent.
