Mr. Neal has been Kyle’s Voice Teacher as of February 2022, and has shared his thoughts on teaching Kyle:   

“My favorite part about Kyle is that he is always ready to do work. He is a very focused listener which helps him to quickly manage new musical topics. He is never deterred by challenges, and is patient in overcoming them. He did a splendid job on his Summer Recital performance, and I’m looking forward to watching him continue to improve.”
