TESTIMONIALS

"Michael has played such a vital role in my career. Coming from the opera world and wanting to be a crossover artist held its intimidation for me, and Michael was the first voice coach I worked with to help me with that transition. He helped me find the fullness of my voice, in all of its shades, and I’m incredibly grateful to him. I owe him big time for the success I’ve had thus far."

Jonathan Kirkland

George Washington in Hamilton (Chicago Company)

"Having a lesson with Michael Mott is like spending the hour with your best friend, who happens to be a comedian. Michael helped me with finding my breath and keeping a steady support of air not only as a singer but also as a dancer. He has helped me with numerous auditions

and his coachings led me to booking many theatre gigs. His teaching approach is always with kindness and uplifting guidance.

I am so grateful for my time with him."

Lauryn Ciardullo

Jasmine u/s in Aladdin on Broadway

"When I started with Michael Mott I was afraid of singing. Michael helped me build up my technique, my confidence and my rep so that I

could go into a room more confident in my abilities and what I had to offer."

“I have been taking voice lessons with Michael over Skype for the past year. He has helped me address a lot of my concerns around technique – specifically breath support and vocal placement. Even over a computer, he is able to diagnose and adjust my approach to be a safer, stronger singer. He is fun, smart, and experienced and if you want to get better, build a book, and laugh a lot – book with him!”

Films: Broken Dreams, Table for Four

"I have been working with Michael for a year now mostly through Skype and when I am not busy in person. Since working with Michael, my

vocal technique has steadily improved. The lessons I’ve had with him have not only helped my singing but my confidence when singing. 

He is an amazing teacher and I am so grateful to work with him."

David Kaid

"Working under Michael's guidance has been nothing short of a privilege. His commitment to the health of my voice has allowed me to explore and develop safely. He demands dedication but always understand my current capabilities, this creates an environment in which I expand myself and achieve goals but in a time that is achievable and realistic. To put it simply- I could ask for no better."

"Michael Mott is a top notch voice teacher. He is a true professional who listens and really cares about his voice students and their goals. His passion, knowledge, and love for what he does is evident in every lesson. He is patient and thorough in this teaching and encourages you to let go of any self judgement by creating a relaxed and comfortable environment. As his student, you get to really know your voice. From personalized warm ups, to building a professional music book, to healthy technique, to expanding your range, and more. I am thankful for his teachings."
