From an early age Angel Vazquez was exposed to music and to different Latin genres such as Salsa, Merengue, Pop Ballads, and Spanish Pop Rock among others. Angel started his formal music training at the age of 13 at the School of Fine Arts of Puerto Rico, even though he had been singing since he was 8 years old at different talents shows and events in Puerto Rico such as weddings, school programs, private and charity events and events sponsored by the Government of Puerto Rico. Angel graduated with honors from the School of Music of Puerto Rico in 2000 and was accepted to and attended the University of Puerto Rico, Bachelors of Music.

    Angel is charismatic, artistic and the best voice teacher I have ever have. His teaching technique not only help you master your instrument, but he makes it really easy for you to understand music, helping you give your best in every performance.

    Angel is a dream! At our first lesson I told Angel that I couldn't even sing Happy Birthday, he calmly and patiently assured me that I could and by the end of our first lesson I was singing a Gloria Estefan song. It was kind of magical. Angel makes you feel 100% at home and comfortable so you can focus on the singing.

    I started taking voice lesson with Angel 2 months ago, his technique and drive motivates me to improved my vocal technique and to work harder in cultivating my talent. When I think that I can't do it, whether is a song or an exercise, he always reassures me that I can do it. I couldn't ask for a better voice teacher, than Angel. He is worth every penny!!!!

    Punctuality, offers, pricing, dedication to students progress. Angel is the man! I started working with him last November and it’s has been the best investment I have ever made. I always wanted to sing and follow my passion in music and Angel have helped me make that possible. My singing has improved and I am a lot more confident when I sing at friends events and the occasional Karaoke night.
