Vocal technique for the speaking voice. Improve your public speaking, speech for acting on stage or screen, pronunciation and projection and get confidence in front of an audience.

About Liza

I have been professionally singing and taking voice lessons since the age of 9! I went through various styles in my love and performance of music, starting with the Beatles, Aretha Franklin and all of Motown, Jazz (Ella Fitzgerald), R&B, and Classical/Opera (starting when I was in high school and attending Interlochen Arts Camp)...

Having received a Bachelor's of Music in Voice (Music Theatre Performance) from NYU, I stayed in NYC after graduation performing in musical theatre and theatre, mostly in the city.

In 2009, I decided to apply to the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, with the intent to broaden my range of skill and opportunity as a performer, but also with the intention to teach, with the higher degree strengthening this possibility. I began to teach ...

Liza is a fantastic teacher! I hadn't sung in a long time and was nervous to get back into it. Liza not only made me feel very comfortable at my first lesson, but also made it a ton of fun! During future sessions she was also very good at helping me develop goals and determine what I wanted to accomplish during my lessons. When I had a chance to sing in front of people, Liza was incredibly supportive and quick to respond to any questions I had over email to help me prepare outside of lessons as well.

Liza is an incredibly dedicated voice teacher and is extremely knowledgeable. In just the first few lessons, the corrections she gave me helped me improve my vocal range, strength, and technique. I would definitely recommend Liza as a teacher!

Excellent Vocal Coach. Highly recommended.

I have been taking weekly lessons with Liza for over a year and would highly recommend her. I looked for a vocal coach after my first club gig as a front-woman for a rock band. Apparently I was not using my voice correctly as I was extremely hoarse following the performance. Liza taught me how to breath, stand & 'place' my voice (be aware of all of the muscles that create one's speaking & singing voice). Using her methodology, I am able to get through a full set without any vocal strain. She is a good communicator and a pleasure to work with. Thanks Liza!

Teacher's Rating

My main concern for taking lessons with Take Lessons is to improve my singing voice, able to hold my breath for a longer time and not strain my vocal chords after an hour of singing.

Liza was very patient with me and she really guided me on the preparations before singing, and it helped me a lot. I feel the improvement I made even for few weeks of lessons.

I highly recommend Liza for people who wanted to improve their voice skills.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to Liza M. and the Take Lessons staffs,

Adam is a great teacher. My daughter really enjoys going which is great when your only 11years old. Adam is wonderful at explaining to my daughter why she has to do the exercises and how everything will affect her singing voice. So much more then I expected.
Marjorie K. New York, NY

For anyone that needs to have their breath and vocals working properly under the stress of public speaking will learn how to breath property, speak with confidence and conviction, resonance and a sense of commitment.
I teach what it takes to be prepared for that special speech. These skills eradicate stage fright and performance anxiety.

About Dr. Daniel

He has sung the roles of Sharpless in Madama Butterfly, Sid in Albert Herring, Figaro in The Marriage of Figaro, Belcore in L’elisir d’amore, Jupiter in Orphe aux enfers, Dr. Falke in Die Fledermaus, Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Masetto in ...

Dan is a very gifted teacher, and a wonderful person. He is intelligent, super punctual, and has a flair for explaining the most intricate details of music and voicing in a way that a 5 year old can easily understand.

He encourages you to sing in the proper way, and break out of bad habits at an early stage. If you are looking for an awesome music teacher, look no further!!

Dan is extremely knowledgeable, patient, focused and funny! A singer my whole life, but mostly untrained, Dan helped me to get back to my passion by asking good questions upfront about my goals and using lessons to strengthen / expand MY voice (rather than shaping it into something else). Unlike any other coach I've seen, Dan actually keeps track of my progress by taking notes and actively revisiting them. He's great and I'm looking forward to continuing our work.

Daniel is a wonderful instructor. I had not sung opera for over 10 years, and felt very unsure about trying it again. In just 8 weeks of lessons with Daniel, my voice has gotten stronger and richer through his guidance. As an instructor, he is very patient and understanding, while still pushing to get the best possible sound. When describing vocal techniques, he can explain them in many different ways in case it’s not clear on the first try. Daniel has also always been a reliable communicator and is flexible with his schedule.
I have left every lesson with Daniel feeling more confident and I am always looking forward to the next one!
Cindy H. Brooklyn, NY

About Cindy

Me being a contemporary vocalist(pop/r&b) with previous instruction, Cindy has been a much needed breath of fresh air. I've trained with other instructors and she is by far one of my favorites. They say a great singer is a great listener and Cindy proves this theory by attentively listening to your concerns and providing you with practical solutions. Her warm, energetic and passionate personality helps you feel more comfortable with trying new techniques without feeling embarrassed.

I studied classical technique with previous instructors and I found that it wasn't very effective for my style. Cindy immediately noticed this and has began to re-work my technique with challenging exercises that I can feel and HEAR the results from during studio sessions and live performances...which is where it counts honestly, and that makes me very happy.

I love to constantly push myself to be better and I feel like Cindy understands exactly how to do that, which is why I feel confident in my decision of choosing her. I would definitely recommend her with glowing stars to any one in any style that is in search of an excellent teacher.

Six words describe Cindy. I WISH I DISCOVERED HER SOONER! She is exactly what I was looking for in a music theory teacher for my son. The chemistry between them is fantastic. She customizes the lesson to my son's needs. I have seen a major difference in a short period of time, with his sight reading, playing by ear, playing scales and chords. I would definitely recommend her and will be taking lessons as long as she is teaching.

Active spoken word poet in high school.

About Alexandra

While my resume is attached, I'd love to tell you a little about myself. My education is in Theater from both Boston University and The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. This includes extensive training in acting, directing, writing, Meisner, Alexander Technique, production, dance, and entertainment history. After moving to New York, I quickly learned that my passions lay more in teaching performing arts rather than performing myself.

Teaching and helping others find tap into their creativity is a long rooted passion of mine. It began in Middle and High School when I was asked to choreograph the musicals in my town. I loved the challenge of visualizing a performance piece and explaining it to others. Witnessing a young person finally succeed in being free with their ...
