I first crossed paths with Sergey when I was pursuing a degree in classical voice and I was struck by his amazing knowledge about vocal technique and how to transition between singing opera and musical theater in a healthy way. He helped me to pick musical theater repertoire that fit my voice, work on belting in a healthy way, and preparing excerpts and monologues for several auditions. Sergey is so patient and intuitive with all his students, and his calm demeanor always made me feel comfortable and supported. Singing for other people sometimes makes me nervous, but Sergey's studio is a place that I have always felt safe trying new things without worrying that I sound bad or might make a mistake. I ended up going a different way with my career that doesn’t give me much time to sing anymore, but I still sing at home for fun and often come to Sergey for advice. I really appreciate his amazing support and how he always makes me feel confident in my singing.
I really enjoyed feeling like I can sing anything after having a lesson with him. I’m on the way anxious and stressed thinking it won’t be a good lesson but once I step through that door, he makes it all go away. I appreciate how I never feel intimidated but always comfortable to sing and make all the choices while learning. Sergey definitely creates an environment where it’s just him and me and there is absolutely no judgement but only encouragement to keep going and be my best. He has taught me more than I’ve ever learned anywhere else. I love how he breaks down the techniques and science of it all. He demonstrates using visual and audio examples. I’ve received many callbacks and landed several jobs because of his lessons. I can confidently say I am a better vocalist because of him. I highly recommend 10/10! He also has a great assortment of teas !!!
Sergey has the strength and energy of a young person combined with a lot of education and experience which he has greatly applied towards bettering me. He works well with people and knows what works with me. He is very patient and intuitive. Thank you Sergey.

Find someone who will invest time in you personally. It takes vulnurability to tell stories with your voice so it is important to find a teacher you are comfortable with.
Students should consider their own goals for taking voice lessons, asking themselves what they are most hoping to get out of the experience. Many singers would say their number one goal is learning how to "sound better," but I like to challenge my students to think beyond that goal - no two singers sound the same. How can we work together to find your special, individual voice?
