What Our Students Are Saying About Us
“I was quite nervous and self conscious going into the studio for the first time; however the studio was warmly lit and allowed for the most comfortable of atmospheres. Serge aided to my relief through his introduction and discussion, and explained with much confidence that I can learn how to sing, expand my range, and do things with my singing voice that I couldn’t conceive of doing previously. He then told me his story, about how he never considered himself a good singer but was determined to learn. Even his first vocal instructor told him that he had a very limited vocal range and lacked vocal technique. Every obstacle appeared to only motivate him further and now, after years of training (which he himself continues to attend) he has a strong and envy worthy singing voice that is both technical and authentic. He is a prime example of how one does not have to be “born” with the vocal talent in order to achieve it.
Personally, I have experienced gradual and consistent change in my vocal capabilities and I am overjoyed with the results that I have experienced over this short amount of time. Serge has been an amazing vocal instructor and his knowledge and capabilities allow him to diagnose exactly what your voice needs and he makes it clear that every singing voice is different and is subject to daily changes. To that point, he takes much care and puts much thought into what your voice specifically needs. The fact that the voice lessons are private allows for you to feel the most comfort and gain your money’s worth, seeing as this allows every lesson to be honed to your needs and skills. Additionally, he is adept in letting you know what is best for your vocal health, and is quick to inform you and the technicalities that are present in the discourse of singing. Further to the aforementioned features, Serge is a down to earth, warm hearted instructor whose personality irradiates any intimidation that you may experience. This allows for you to automatically feel comfortable and makes the common anxieties that exist over singing to dissipate. It is clear that if you are looking to learn and/or to better enhance the voice you have, Pro Vox Studios is the place to go!”
“Working with Sergio has been GREAT! I love music and didn’t realize I had potential until Sergio brought it out during my first few singing lessons. He is patient and gives positive and constructive feedback, so my singing voice can always improve even beyond my expectations.”
“I had a lot of tension in my voice for a long time and I always wanted to sing the higher notes with power. I never could do that until Sergio gave me the guidance. Now I can sing way higher! I also have more control, so my high notes don’t sound unpleasant but more professional. I am so grateful for his teaching methods. He always makes me walk through my voice lesson, knowing exactly what to do and they’re always so much fun!! Thanks Sergio!!”
“My wife and I had been searching for a vocal teacher for our three children and signed up with Sergio. My children were comfortable as soon as they met Sergio. Sergio has a gentle demeanour and a great sense of humour. He has a good rapport with children and is always very encouraging with their accomplishments. Sergio focuses on vocal drills and training. He spends a great deal of effort on laying a strong foundation to strengthen the student’s vocal ability. Learning vibrato, understanding proper posture and form are repeated in every lesson.
Students are introduced to various types of music and are able to choose a song to sing that reflects the students’ musical taste. Rather than simply teach proper form, Sergio always gives detailed explanations during lessons. Often, he shares his own experiences of when he was learning to sing and how he overcame various challenges along the way.
I would recommend Sergio to anyone young or old who is interested in learning to sing with proper form. His energy and enthusiasm will inspire you to continue to learn and realize your true vocal potential. Sign up with Sergio!”
“Personally, I’ve seen a huge difference in my voice after only a few lessons. Sergio is teaching me voice control and vibrato which I asked for specific assistance with and it’s great! He understands what I’m trying to achieve and he’s helping me get there. I’m really excited to see what else I may learn and experience with him as a great teacher.”
“It’s always a really comfortable environment doing lessons with Sergio! Together we have seen a dynamic change in my abilities due to practising some techniques that to most would seem strange, like for instance Tibetan throat singing! See you next week Sergio!”
“We are extremely happy with your vocal training and our daughter Rachel has learned a lot in a short period of time. We have been amazed with Rachel’s performances in few weeks’ time and she has more confidence than before. She really enjoys coming to your class as you make the teaching with more fun. We are glad and lucky that we were able to find the right person to teach our daughter. Thank you!”

“If you’ve never experienced a person with infectious enthusiasm, then you need to experience Sergio at Pro Vox Studios.
I went in initially with zero expectations. Becoming a better singer was something on my mind that was matched only by my curiosity of what a singing lesson would actually do for me. I am only a professional singer when I’m in the shower – aside from that I have no training. I had wondered if Sergio could teach a complete newbie like myself and I was prepared to frustrate him. I’m glad to say that Sergio at Pro Vox is a super patient, experienced and cheery guy.
He was able to teach me a lot based on the first lesson and from there I wanted to do more. I’ve been hitting notes that I didn’t think were possible before. He has a very thorough approach and actively records/takes notes to really tailor the experience to each individual student. Sometimes there is a pause in the action just so we can have a few laughs. Everything feels natural and he’s always been very upbeat even when I feel I’m blundering through the notes.
That first lesson turned into a second lesson. Later on that second lesson turned into a third one. I’m the “do-it-yourself” kind of guy who would rather study Youtube videos on how to sing rather than take a lesson. I can testify that a lesson, in-person, is better than trying to copy a Youtube video. I’ve learned more in my short time spent at Pro Vox than I ever would have trying to read how to sing on the net.
Overall, I would recommend this course to anyone interested in singing. No matter what level you’re at, you will benefit. I can’t wait to woo the ladies with the skills I’ve picked up from Pro Vox Studios!”

“Sergio is an incredibly talented and enthusiastic music instructor that has a knack for engaging students with meaning and relevance. I had the privilege of watching Sergio work with large, and small groups of students. Being able to see the students performance, tone, and confidence in themselves transform each week was such a positive experience for not only myself but our classroom community.
His teaching style seamlessly adapted appropriately and efficiently to each application he took on. Sergio’s approach to teaching vocals is smart, scientific, but retains relevance and easy-accessibility for anyone who is interested in starting, improving, or maintaining their singing voice. Without a doubt, Sergio is hitting all the right registers with his vocal lessons!”
