About this pro

I LOVE singing, creating music and helping others learn to sing and bring out their own special voice or learn to play piano or guitar! I studied classical music since I was 11 years old and then went on to study Opera in College. This gave me a solid foundation for music and music theory but it wasn't where my heart was. Since my decision to leave Opera studies I have experienced many different musical incarnations. In my professional career as a musician and artist I have performed, written and recorded in many genres such as folk, blues, pop, indie and americana. I believe there are no limits to what one can do if there is passion and excitement behind it! I have been in music a long time now with many ups and downs and still love (almost) every minute of it :) I truly enjoy teaching and watching my students grow and surprise themselves. I had the most incredible teachers growing up, they supported me and help shape me as a artist and musician, I strive to do the same with my students. I genuinely care about each individual student I teach and want to help them achieve their highest potential! Lesson Details I approach each lesson catered to the individual. We all have different ways of learning. I studied classically as a child and Opera in University but I professional years have been spent doing a range of pop, musical theater, blues, indie, folk and Americana. I have had many years in the music business and use that experience to help my students discover what they want to do with their voice. Are you an Artist? Do you just want to sing or play piano or guitar for fun? Are you an actor preparing a particular song for an audition? Are you a speaker and want to help your stage presence and projection? Do you want to rock a Karaoke song? Do you want to see what beautiful voice is in there?  In all lessons we will focus on the connection of your breath. Basic to advanced warm up techniques, pitch control, projection and full connection to the words you are singing. All music is telling a story and in my opinion that is one of the most crucial elements to a good singer is being able to successfully convey the story. And you will also notice a difference in your speaking voice as well! Most importantly its FUN! I also offer beginner piano, guitar and theory lessons. I believe its great to learn the fundamentals of music and its always fun and exciting to learn something new! Studio Equipment Guitars, Keyboard, ukulele, latest protools, amps, sound booth, recording studio and other fun magical instruments!Specialties I primarily teach popular music styles. I do have a background in Opera. My students have ranged from young children to adults, artist, actors, professional speakers and lovers of music of all kinds that want to learn the fundamentals of proper singing techniques and explore their OWN wonderful instrument or learn piano or guitar! Make 2017 your year to learn something new! Why not music? IT IS THE BEST!!!

    Heart of gold! Michelle is a bright light of love and technique she teaches with positive reinforcement and insightful personal feedback that gives you exactly the direction you need to get to where u want to go!

    Always wanted to take singing lessons? Try with Michelle! Michelle is is an all around awesome person.Im in my 20s and decided to take some singing classes. I've always loved to sing but really had no clue where it comes from or what I could do to improve. Michelle really enlightened me about the inner works/mechanics of singing and had me practice regularly and push/find my limits. Understanding the theory and practicing are really key in getting to know what you can do and where you can go. Michelle would try all sorts of exercises at different levels to guide me towards that. Michelle really encouraging and gets the human/real/emotional side of singing. She is a singer, musician, song-writer herself.Michelle is so easy going and reliable. Scheduling has always gone really smoothly.The lessons would take place in her home music studio -- which really worked for me, because I can't go singing out loud where I live.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

    Michelle Carter has a lot of knowledge of what she is teaching (singing), always makes time for lessons, very involved in the student's goals and helps to achieve them, knows the students limits but pushes them to get better and surprise themselves.

    After ending a four year relationship I decided to take singing lessons with Michelle in hopes of pulling myself out of a funk. Singing with Michelle was THE greatest decision I could have made! Michelle challenges me to set goals, learn to fearlessly express myself with my voice, and encouraged me to develop my own style. She has great tips and provides helpful and challenging exercises. I lost track of how many times I surprised myself during her instruction! If you're seeking to better your vocal talents, or lift your spirit/confidence, working with Michelle is where you should be.
