I’ve been taking regular voice lessons with Sam for a couple of years now, and I always leave a lesson feeling energised and inspired.
Working with Sam has helped me achieve vocal progress I never thought I was capable of, which is deeply fulfilling.
Having Sam encourage me, guide my technical progress in a way that really clicks with my learning style, and coax me out of my creative comfort zone with deep empathy has changed the way I see myself, and I’m so grateful for that.
The introspective process of learning rhythm, emotion, character, and narrative in music—and putting that into practice—has been the most effective form of therapy I’ve ever experienced.
I’m more in tune with music and singing on a technical level, but also on a deeper intuitive level. I feel more grounded within my own mind and body, and more confident in my creative identity and expression, even beyond music!
I would absolutely recommend working with Sam for anyone with an interest in not only improving vocally, but also creatively overall!
I’ve learned a couple things.

I love Sam’s energy! I sought out vocal lessons because I received feedback from my worship pastor; he advised that I seemed to tense up a bit in my vocal cords and wanted me to round out my vowels. Having never received any training before, this feedback totally went over my head. Sam not only helped me develop a better understanding of the feedback, but also validated my confusion which made me feel so comfortable! This past weekend I sang again and my worship Pastor heard a notable difference! It was so encouraging! A true teacher, Sam is so generous with his time and skills to help cultivate progress with his students. Super thankful for him!
Even from the very first lessons I took with Sam, I felt immediate improvements in many aspects of my singing. He is very patient and thorough when explaining techniques, and helped me develop both my voice and my understanding of the voice. Within a week, I felt myself make more progress with his direction than I had with months of practicing alone!
Sam is a gifted and passionate vocal coach, and I’m thrilled to have had him as my teacher. His in-depth knowledge of vocal technique helped me improve my voice and sing with much more ease and power. His lessons were fun; i have had the pleasure of working with him.
I learned a lot and had a lot of fun taking lessons from Sam. In helping me improve my technique, he emphasized what I was doing well and my natural strengths more than just correcting what I was not doing properly. We also explored and identified my habits outside of class that were helping or hindering my condition for singing. The range of music that I was able to work on with Sam made lessons very enjoyable – Sam clearly has deep knowledge of specific genres such as musical theatre, but he is able and happy to teach everything from pop, R&B, to jazz and even rap. I would strongly recommend Sam as a singing teacher.
Sam has been a very helpful teacher. He has given me a lot of examples of how I can improve my singing and makes them easy to understand. He had studied under a lot of different teachers providing him a well rounded, open minded education giving him a lot of experiences to pull from in his teaching.
His training technique is quick and efficient without making the experience intimidating. He never wasted time in our sessions, and also kept it at a pace that was easy for me. Since studying with him, in two months time I already feel the strength and technique required to sing any song I want. He gave me the confidence I needed to sing all of my music and to be proud of my own personal sound.
I am 45 years old and had wanted to take lessons all my life, and finally made the time to do it. Sam was recommended to me from a friend and I have enjoyed taking lessons from him. He is great teacher who thrives on technique. Although you might not always think the technique is helping, as some of the exercises are weird at times, and makes you wonder how this is helping you sing, the technique that Sam teaches works. I have been surprised at how far along my voice has come in three months. Simply amazed. I can actually hold a key. My range has gotten better, and I actually know when I am off key. The technique he uses is amazing and with practice I actually feel like I can sing. I still have a lot of work to do, but Sam has given me a great foundation. I would recommend Sam to anyone for singing lessons. He is great teacher and has been blessed with a talent that I’m glad he is sharing with other’s.
