"Best vocal teacher in Miami! I studied with Oscar from when I was 15 until I was 21 and the strides I made as a vocalist, musician and performer were tremendous. I cannot speak highly enough of Oscar as a teacher, mentor and person and South Florida is truly lucky to have the Performer's Music Institute! If any of you are interested in or know of someone who is interested in starting vocal lessons, this is the place" -(Carolina) LINA GAUDENZI -of NBC's THE VOICE-Season 5

"Studying voice with Oscar was my entry to the professional singing world. Oscar is extremely well rounded and gives a student all she/he needs to perform at a professional level. He is a great musician and so you have the bonus of having it all - a voice teacher, a coach and an accompanist. I warmly recommend" -Cantor Netanel Hershtik, (Tenor) of The Hamptom Synagogue in New York
