Michelle Shuttleworth Towler is an enthusiastic and patient professional voice teacher as well as a performer in New York City. Her adult students have been cast in shows, tours, film and television. She has considerable experience preparing young students for NYC arts programs such as LaGuardia High School of the Performing Arts, Frank Sinatra School for the Performing Arts, The Professional Children's School, Manhattan School of Music Pre-College Program, The National Children’s Chorus and CAP 21 as well as the prestigious Interlochen Arts Program.

In addition to teaching, Michelle is a co-founder/owner of Footlights Entertainment, an NYC-based company providing entertainment for high end private and corporate events, as well as director of the Buck Hill Sky Top Music Festival Educational Outreach Program. Michelle is a member of AEA (Actor's Equity Assiciation) and NYSTA (New York Singing Teachers' Association)

Michelle specializes in creating highly customized lesson plans centered around your individual voice and goals. Focus is always placed on breathing and vocal technique, but your objectives may vary:

* Basic - Intermediate - Advanced Vocal Technique
* Healthy Sound Production
* Expansion of Range
* Breath Support
* Building Audition Book Reperatoire
* Audition Prep
* Performance Techniques
* Ear Training
* Harmonization
* Reading Music
* Various Music Styles

Convenient location in Sunnyside via 7 train! Easy access to highway!

**Discounted monthly packages available**

www.singingvoicenyc.com

From the very first time I met Michelle, I felt comfortable and completely at ease. Not only did I find her personable and professional, but I felt confident that she would actually be able to help me attain my vocal needs and goals. From extracting self confidence to exploring strengths and weaknesses, to uncovering the perfect audition song, and pinpointing placement of sound, she has been a focal point of knowledge. Her expertise in the physical areas where sound is produced will amaze and inspire you--and you'll be shocked to find that knowing those things makes a difference! Michelle's patience and passion for helping is evident in every lesson. She is firm but fun. The ability she has to mold the human voice is astonishing and at times I have found I don't even recognize myself! She pushes you to do your best and will go to great lengths to ensure your comfort and overall happiness. - Mandy TV/film/theater actress New York, NY

I had always wanted to sing. But I didn't have the confidence that I could actually sing, and I remember being scared to death to go to the first lesson. The fact that Michelle was so warm and welcoming right away allowed me to relax. She made a point to stress what I was doing right when we began our basic exercises. My confidence increased, and after only the first four classes I noticed improvement. Michelle remembers your tendencies and can get you to see and correct things that may be holding you back. She knows how to get you to produce sound in a way that will further your development. Three and a half years later, after maybe 100 lessons or so, the improvement I have noticed is dramatic. I have sung for my mother, my father, complete strangers, and friends. I have developed the awareness to correct myself when I practice on my own. This is invaluable because, as Michelle has told me repeatedly, the more your practice, and practice knowledgeably, the greater your improvements will be. What it has done for my confidence and how it has changed my life is impossible to put into words, but you'll understand it after your first month of lessons. - Tony, Casting Director, New York, NY

LEARN HOW TO PLAY ACOUSTIC GUITAR


If you would like to learn how to play acoustic guitar, my name is John, and I'm a longtime guitarist and teacher offering organized, step-by-step lessons for aspiring guitarists and music students, from absolute beginners to experienced players.


Structured Lessons That Will Teach You:

  • NOTES
  • CHORDS
  • STRUMMING PATTERNS
  • FINGERPICKING
  • MUSIC THEORY
  • HOW TO READ MUSIC
  • HOW TO READ TABLATURE
  • HOW TO READ CHORD CHARTS
  • HOW TO PLAY SONGS
  • HOW TO ACCOMPANY YOURSELF WHILE SINGING
  • HOW TO PLAY IN THE STYLE/S OF YOUR CHOICE
  • HOW TO WRITE YOUR OWN SONGS

    ...and much more.

  • Here's what some of those who've taken lessons with me have said:

    "Thanks John - I'm playing right now - I just LOVE my guitar and playing.. Thanks to you! I will try to come on Monday night after work if that is OK with you. Thank you - you are really a great instructor.... it really inspired me once again. :-) "
    -Mary L.

    "John is a great, patient teacher. As an adult with absolutely no experience, I was hesitant to start learning, but John has taken me much further than I thought I'd go. After just six months, I've learned songs, and my guitar-playing friends have been amazed at the depth of theory and technique I've picked up. I highly recommend John to beginners, and his depth of knowledge would be great for practiced guitarists!"
    -Bob C.

    "Man, you wouldn't happen to have any of your famous chord progression sheets laying around would you? I am looking for new material and your lessons always clicked with me. I figured out my first song today!"
    -Brandon W.

    "All the printed chord charts and explanations you gave me are really helpful, I am starting to understand some of the theory that you talked about in class, it's kind of awesome."
    -Nitika N.

    "I enjoyed our lesson today, and would like to schedule another one for next week. Does Wednesday at 8 work again for you?"
    -Rob E.

    "I liked your training. I will reschedule for next Saturday, August 7 @ 12pm."
    -Diana B.

    "I just wanted to let you know that I liked your lesson, thank you very much, and I would definitely like to continue having you as my teacher...you are a great instructor."
    -Eric
    [Comments used by permission.]


    At the end of each lesson, you'll retain access to what you've learned through take-home materials you'll be given that you can use to practice with at home.



    Over 30 years of playing experience, and more than 6 years' worth of teaching. Lessons take place in my Lower East Side apartment, with afternoon and evening classes available. $30.00/hr. Contact me to schedule, or to find out more.

    Do you sing Rock, Metal, Pop, Punk but don't want to go to a vocal coach with an Opera, Jazz or a Musical Theater background? Are you a Classically trained singer looking to do contemporary music and having trouble transitioning style? Are you a beginner or musician and don't know where to start to learn how to sing?

    Don't be mislead by voice teachers or coaches touting their degrees in "Music". That doesn't qualify them to teach voice! A piece of paper means nothing if you haven't proved yourself in the real world singing in front of thousands and know how to actually teach someone what you know and can do. Learn from a professional not only out there singing, but an expert in the field of vocal science and an innovator in contemporary extreme singing techniques.

    My name is Kevin Richards and I'm a currently performing, professional Rock singer with over 20 years experience in the music business. I've sang to over 80,000 people in my career. I'm also the author and creator of the "Breaking the Chains" CD Vocal program sold in 90 countries worldwide. I help contemporary singers learn new, extreme singing techniques. Unlike other teachers, I don't want to change your vocal style - I want you to sound like you - only better!

    * Extend Your Range
    * Eliminate Your Break - no more cracks or breaks between notes
    * Increase Your Power - deliver every song with conviction & presence
    * Develop Stamina - sing for hours without losing your voice

    Don't be content to just be a great singer - Become a great performer.

    The absolute best way to become a great guitar player is to study with a guitar teacher who:

    1. Will show you how to apply and integrate everything you are learning into your guitar playing, so you can become a more creative musician

    2. Will NOT simply ‘give you things to play/practice’ and instead will design your lessons to be 100% based around improving the skills that will move you towards your goals

    3. Will help you to get serious results from your practice time, instead of just ‘going through the motions’, so that you can become the guitarist you want to be much faster than you ever imagined possible

    4. Will show you precisely what YOU must learn and practice to learn guitar the way you want

    5. Has a long list of happy students whom he has already taught to reach their musical goals
