"Samuel is the best teacher I've ever had for anything, ever. He breaks down singing in a very articulate and accessible way, and gives incredible helpful and personalized feedback every time we meet."

Hadar Dor

I have taught singers who are male, female and transitioned.

Students of mine have ranged in age from 6 to 86 years, and in musical tastes including rock, pop, folk, opera, country and more.


For adult beginners, I help students overcome their self-consciousness and anxiety to reveal their healthiest authentic voice. For any style or genre of singing, I can help you to develop freedom, power and sustainability.  
For children, I focus on developing safe, healthy, sustainable singing habits through instilling mind-body connection, musical literacy, and foundational vocal technique.
For adolescents, I help guide their voices into maturity and strength, providing a solid technical foundation that will last a lifetime of singing in any genre or style.
And I also help aspiring performers who love to perform on stage in musical theatre, opera, and choir address technical shortcomings in order to earn more roles and solos.
 

Premium Voice Mentorship

This is an intensive program I developed to help new singers develop quickly into confident performers. The program involves a mix of pre-recorded content and study aides, along with one-on-one voice teaching and vocal coaching. I have streamlined decades of private, weekly instruction, college level music theory, and a lifetime of mindfulness and self-inquiry into a system to achieve results quickly.

This is not for everyone! This premium service requires dedication and daily practice, and is an investment. In return you receive priority individual attention, and abundant accountability and resources.

Voice Lessons

During a typical voice lesson, we will spend a portion of time on technique, and a portion of time integrating that technique into songs. Bring a recording device to every lesson, as the instruction will serve as your self-study between lessons.

NEW STUDENTS : 
I offer new students a discounted, 30-minute introductory lesson ($25). This intro lesson is intended to give you, the student, a sample of the process and how I work, so that you can make a decision about how you would like to continue. 

PRICING : 
You will find pricing information for continuing lessons below. You can also use my CONTACT FORM to send me a message with any questions or to sign up for my email list for future offers and information.

FREQUENCY : 
I recommend that beginners subscribe to weekly lessons, which recur on the same day and time. More advanced singers may require less frequent instruction, and schedule-as-you-go with drop-in lessons or discount packages.

Please see the table below for a breakdown and links to my online scheduling platform.

ONLINE LESSONS : 
Online lessons occur using Zoom if you use a laptop (recommended) or FaceTime if using an iPad or iPhone. Your confirmation email will have the Zoom link in it. No extra equipment or software is needed for beginners. Professional singers may benefit from a mid- to high-quality USB microphone, and I am happy to consult on your options.

IN-PERSON LESSONS:
In-person lessons are currently suspended due to COVID. When they resume, my home studio is in Nevada City CA.

 
 

Vocal Coaching

In my studio (online or in-person), vocal coaching focuses on the artistry of interpreting songs.

If you want vocal coaching in preparation for an audition, performance or recording, it is important that you provide your own accompanist, karaoke/backing track, or lead sheet style sheet music.

Often, an hour long drop-in is sufficient to coach a single song. If you have several songs that you want coached, consider a 4-lesson package. See the table below to purchase and schedule, or USE MY CONTACT FORM if you have any questions.
