Michelle feels it is incredibly important that all vocal/singing students have at least a basic understanding of music theory, reading music and ear training. This greatly assists them as they mature as a singer and as a performer, giving them the confidence, skills and knowledge to thrive in their musical endeavors. Michelle designs a specific curriculum for each student’s goals and needs so that these important music skills can be fun and accessible to anyone.
About Michelle A.

I believe that everyone can sing, it is just a matter of learning how to use your own unique instrument. From a very young age, as a performer, I was sharing my love of the arts with others. I grew up with an immense appreciation for the self-expression and creativity that result from all forms of art and music, to me, felt like my ideal way to express myself. Music inspires me and I always knew I wanted to help others connect with their inner musical ability as well. *** Lesson Details *** Michelle’s intention for each student is to support him or her, to the best of her ability, in finding and cultivating their voice, as well as their musical and performance abilities. As a teacher, she keeps a healthy balance between professionalism and making learning fun, inspiring and experiential. She designs a specific curriculum for each student based on their specific goals and intentions regarding their voice so that each lesson focuses on them and their unique needs. It is extremely important to her that students of all ages have a positive experience of music in their lives and she provides fun and encouraging performance opportunities for those students who wish to participate. Michelle’s goal is to recognize and support each student's potential, helping to give them confidence, direction and motivation on their unique musical journey. *** Studio Equipment *** Piano, music stand, microphone, mic stand, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, guitar and mic amplifier, recording equipment. *** Travel Equipment *** Portable Keyboard *** Specialties *** Musical theater, Jazz, Classical, Contemporary, R & B, Folk, Alternative, Contemporary Christian and Popular Music.

I highly recommend Michelle - she's so upbeat and knowledgeable, I feel like a advance a significant amount with every lesson. I've already recommended that friends study with her through TakeLessons, and I'm looking forward to continuing to work with her.
