Taylor Masamitsu, Tenor

“He’s a marvel. I am really astounded by the progress that I have made since we began working together, and I put most of that down to Taylor’s ability to patiently iterate on new approaches with me, looking for ones that fit my voice, my place in my singing journey and my learning style. I feel like this is the most progress that I have made in a long while, and now I have all of these new areas of my voice to continue to explore. This is exactly what I was looking for. Highly recommended!”

Ellie here!  I want to introduce you all to Taylor Masamitsu.  Taylor has an amazing, positive vibe and loves working to help people find the joy in singing — but he also has the chops to help you develope skills for professional singing should you dream of going pro.  He was the official production vocal teacher for many seasons of NBC/Universal’s La Voz Kids show and gas students on Broadway and in some of the finest performance programs in NYC and LA.  If you’re an amateur, Taylor has the teaching chops and a joyful attitude to guide you in your vocal journey.  If you’re already an established artist,  he will help you fine-tune and problem solve to get you where you dream of being.
