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.
