Frequently Asked Questions
How long is a lesson?
Lessons can be a half hour, 45 minutes or an hour.
How often should I take a lesson?
Lessons should be taken once a week, ideally. Combine your lesson time with additional home practice, including warmups and songs for a good hour a day five to seven days a week. Although, that second part is up to you!
What are your fees?
I prefer to speak to you in person or on the phone to discuss fees. Give me a call at (516)997-8339!
Can anybody sing?
I believe that to a degree, anybody can sing. Some people are naturally talented, but most people can learn to sing to a certain degree.
How long will it take me to become a great singer?
That depends on how often you come to lessons, and how much time you dedicate to practicing voice at home.
Do you work with beginners?
My personal motto is, “I like to work with nice people that want to improve their voices”. I’ve had students on Broadway and international tours, as well as students on major labels. I also teach hobbyists who simply enjoy coming to a lesson, warming up, and singing songs.

Yes…everything. I have performed in original rock bands, as well as Blues, reggae, Top Forty, jazz quartet, and presently the Out of the Box Big Band (a 17 piece big band). I also have a background in musical theatre, and I was a wedding and church singer for many years. I teach, Rock, Pop, Musical theatre, jazz, R&B, Classical, Blues, and more.
Do you have any accreditation?
Yes. I have a B.F.A. in music, as a voice major and piano minor. I have over thirty years experience as a student of voice. I am a member of New York Singing Teachers Association(NYSTA). Don’t let my words convince you, come in for a lesson and let my teaching convince you.
