An amazing teacher! He is able to transform a raw talent in a person into a voice which is almost pitch-perfect very quickly. Aligned with the ability to put people at their ease, he can then encourage them by the use of vocal techniques, to greatly increase their singing abilities. This ability in my view is a gift which he has been given.
Vasili understands very quickly the weak points of a singer and then can help them improve by gentle encouragement.
I thoroughly recommend him.
Vasili is teaching our youngest son of 9 years old for 9 months to date. He is the most stimulating tutor who respects the pupil and at the same time encourages him to open his best. The quality and standards of teaching are very high and our son is waiting for every class to come.
Our son qualified for Blind Auditions on Voice Kids, Channel 1 Russia, being selected to final 67 out of original +16,000 candidates.
His professionalism from day one is really admirable.
His training is very holistic and for my daughter, she has been truly transformed and became very confident. She now finds it much easier to sing the difficult songs. She can hold her breath much longer.
I already have recommended him to couple of friends.
We have found a treasure and I am sure my daughter will be working with him for a long time .
I highly recommend Vasili Karpiak for vocal education
