  • Joaquin Evans

    Very experienced vocalist, great atmosphere in the learning environment and she's a woman who loves music and her clients as well. I absolutely loved taking lessons with Michele and I adore her

  • Victoria Noyes

    She hears every single thing. It may not be noticeable to a regular person listening but she can hear if you're not using enough air, if you didn't take a big enough breath, or if you're larynx isn't stable... she hears it, and knows how to address it. She has helped me strengthen many aspects of my voice in ways vocal teachers have never addressed. She's incredibly knowledgeable, honest & can take you to the next level if not levels!!

    I’ve worked with Michelle for many years and she really takes the time to understand your voice and make sure you nail every goal you are trying to achieve. She is an amazing human being, teacher, and friend and I am fortunate to have had her support through my career!

  • Milana Malec

    I have been working with Michele for the past 7 years and I can without a doubt say that she is the reason I am the singer I am today. She does not sugar coat, and gets right to the point, making lessons extremely beneficial and productive. She has an impeccable ear and does not allow for you to reach anything short from your best. She has pushed me farther than I thought I could ever go, and for her immense support and care I am beyond grateful. She is as real as it gets and I can’t thank her enough for the singer she has helped me become.
