    He is patient but pushes me to be the best I can be. He is always encouraging and has the best tips for the things I need to work on. He has helped me tremendously with my confidence, which was a major problem I had to begin with. He makes every lesson fun and honestly reminded me why I began and loved singing in the first place. He also makes me feel like I can do anything I want to if I work hard and stop being hard on myself 24/7. Working with him has been one of the best decisions ive made as an artist but also as a person because he has that much of an impact.
