Lewis Ray, a multi-talented singer and songwriter, studied music at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA and Audio Production at the Art Institute of Atlanta. He plays piano and guitar and loves all styles of music! When he’s not teaching at Sing like a Star studios, he enjoys recording and performing his original songs. In January 2014, Lewis announced the release of his debut single and music video, “Light it up”, receiving favorable reviews among fans and critics.
He credits Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and his family among his many musical influences.
Lewis is very passionate about singing and bringing out the star quality in each student he encounters. “I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of an amazing team and teaching a revolutionary singing method!” says Ray.
Lewis teaches VOICE, PIANO, SONGWRITING, and GUITAR. Many of his students book hour-long sessions weekly, dividing the time between singing and piano, guitar, or songwriting. He also engineers and produces RECORDING SESSIONS at the SLaS recording studio. If you need a demo, or an amazing teacher, book with Lewis!
Lewis has been a valued member of the SLaS staff for six years! He is by far our most popular and most requested teacher!
Here are a couple of examples of feedback from Lewis’ clients:
I have been very happy with the service that I have received at Sing Like a Star. Lewis is my teacher and he is really amazing. I have grown so much under his guidance. I had been to 3 other companies/teachers before I came to SLAS and I wish I would have come to you all first. Every lesson has provided me growth. I look forward to this upcoming year and continuing to be an SLAS client.
