With extensive training in classical music, Michele teaches his students proper vocal technique so that each student learns to sing with ease and freedom, to attain and experience that magical moment of the totally coordinated vocal instrument. Michele appreciates the necessity for him to present a practical, intelligent approach to teaching the vocal student about his or her vocal instrument so that, with concentrated effort, the student can attain the desired goal of becoming a singer who can sing any style of music with ease and freedom and with their own unique voice.
I am passionate about giving my students the tools to become knowledgeable musicians, confident, healthy, versatile singers, and expressive human beings. I use a sequential approach to developing the voice that includes aligning the body, releasing physical tension, understanding and awareness of proper inhalation, developing greater breath capacity, breath energy and control, and creating warmth, clarity, freedom and evenness in the tone throughout a wide vocal range. I believe that anyone can sing. However, it takes dedicated, detailed instruction, along with ongoing, mindful practicing to develop beauty, maturity and freedom in the voice. Whether it is vocal pop, musical theatre or 'classical' music, it is a joy for me to share my passion for healthy, expressive singing.
