Fred is a top notch teacher

I took voice lessons with Fred for about 2 years when I was 11 years old. I remember always looking forward to my lessons with him. He was not only a great voice teacher, but such a kind soul. He always knew what I needed on any given day, and would tailor my lessons for that. Lessons with him were always a highlight of my week. Aside from his kindness and relaxed energy, he has a unique creativity in teaching voice. He is extremely keyed in to each individual's vocal quality and tailors his exercises for them. I would highly recommend taking lessons with Fred.

Deep understanding of singing

I took lessons with Fred Rice for one year, and it was perfect for a beginning vocalist. I could tell that Fred understood every aspect of what he taught me, and communicated those ideas in an accessible fashion. I highly recommend Fred for vocalists at any level; I personally guarantee that you will learn from him and get more than your money's worth.

Working with Fred was truly rewarding.

I was a student of Fred's for a year and I found it to be a truly wonderful, positive experience.
Fred learned what was important for me as a singer and focused on my voice as an individual.
More importantly, working with Fred was a joy. We had fun and I never stopped learning.

Excellence!

Matt La Von is the epitome of a great teacher. He is patient, allowing you to understand things on your own time. His instruction is clear and easy to understand and his knowledge of music seems to be endless. Above all else he is an accomplished musician and I trust that under his watchful eye I will be able to improve and refine my own abilities.

A great experience!

I highly recommend Marni for voice lessons. She is an extremely talented teacher in both the mechanics and creative aspects of singing. Often, she explains concepts to me in a visual manner because it is familiar to me (I have experience in visual art). I'm amazed at how much I've improved my vocal range/quality in a short time, and how much more comfortable I feel when I sing (both physical comfort and improved confidence). Marni is a gifted artist who will help you find your unique singing voice.

Gina is a wonderful friend, but more importantly, a singer with a strong understanding of the principles behind healthy vocal production. Having known here for years and performed with her, I can attest to her enthusiasm, strong knowledge of the vocal arts and willingness to go the extra mile! If you're looking for a partner in crime for vocal study, Gina is most certainly worth a try!

About Nick

Welcome, my teaching philosophy is that a concrete musical foundation can be transferred across any musical genre. Having witnessed the misleading "strict classical" only foundation, I make sure all my students are introduced to composition, theory, jazz and world music within their first year. As a piano/vocal teacher I’ve been privately and publicly coaching for the past 8 years. I have a roster of students on the Upper East Side and have worked with studios such as Piano Power, Kidville and Acting Like a Kid, where I’ve privately taught over 25 students piano and voice. My approach encompasses combining technical exercises and stylistic technique alongside popular and standard repertoire of the student’s choosing. I’ve found that students respond well when techniques ...

My Piano Lessons with Nick were unlike any lessons I've ever had. He incorporated Music Theory, Composition, Sight Reading, and specially tailored exercises right for my weak areas. I'm able to understand music in deeper ways then simply reading what's on the page.
