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
