Voice Lessons

Through his own experience of vocal discovery, thanks in large part to the talented and dedicated mentors he has been fortunate enough to have, Sam has come to fall in love with the process of teaching others how to sing. Whether your goal is to boost your karaoke confidence or prepare for auditions, he will guide you through a gradual and positive exploration of your voice with a foundation in vocal health.

Drawing on his educational background, Sam believes in an approach that includes a clear understanding of how your voice works, an enjoyment of practicing, and reducing the fear of "wrong notes" so that you can discover what your unique voice is capable of.

He is excited to offer lessons to students of all ages and levels of experience. Sam is a believer that if you can speak, you can sing! Most lessons take place in Manhattan or Jersey City, but it is possible to arrange for him to travel to your home. Skype lessons are also available. 

Sam also offers tutoring in ear training, sight-singing, theory, as well as preparation for Undergraduate and Graduate level placement exams. Students can choose between tutoring sessions, voice lessons, diction/speech, or a customized combination.

I am an actor who lives in Washington Heights. I was looking for an accompanist and coach in the neighborhood and found Sam Fujii. What a find! I have used him several times now to prepare for auditions. He was able to learn my music very quickly and correct mistakes immediately. Sam is a very pleasant, easy going guy, and I highly recommend him!

I’m very pleased with the vocal techniques and music reading my daughter has been learning in her lessons with Sam. He is a patient and encouraging teacher who explains musical concepts in ways that are accessible to children and makes the lessons fun for them.
— Jeni, parent
My 12 year-old began taking lessons with Sam about 6 months ago. Sam has been amazingly patient in helping our child focus and grow as a singer. He has also been very flexible about letting our child pick music that matches his interest. Not only has our child grown as a singer, but Sam has also developed a trusting relationship that has boosted our child’s confidence, allowing him to really shine on the stage! Thanks Sam!
