Ivan is an extraordinary instructor. I first came to him because I was struggling to perform a solo for a piece I had been asked to audition for in an upcoming show. I had gone back through my past coaching, met in-person with a couple of coaches, and just about exhausted myself working through different online tutorials. Everything I was trying either created unwanted tension, or wasn’t generating enough progress. When I first met Ivan he created a safe and supportive environment, and immediately gave me the confidence that we’d succeed together. His approach had me quickly hitting high notes without tension, and his methods helped me to understand exactly what I needed to work on and overcome to sing with confidence. I can’t recommend him enough.
