"My teaching philosophy is about the student's long term vocal health. I am very patient! I work to build a strong foundation of both musicianship skills and vocal skills. I truly believe in creating a well rounded musician. I think what sets me apart as a voice teacher is that I work to make myself obsolete to my students. I want them to have the tools to identify why something may feel difficult and be able to troubleshoot it for themselves eventually. After all I only see them once a week!"
Matthew Giallongo is now accepting students for FALL 2016. Previous students of Nathan Hickle (who is relocating to Iowa) will have priority scheduling with Mr. Giallongo.
