About Me

I have been a professional voice, music theory and piano teacher for the last ten years, and have loved every minute of it. I am originally from Canada, and went to the University of Windsor to study vocal performance. I was given an opportunity to the study principals of classical singing and musical theater. From there, I began to work as a featured classical soloist and choral singer throughout Canada. I came to New York to continue my studies, and earned a Master of Music degree in Classical Voice from the Manhattan School of Music.

I believe that singing lessons should be a lot of fun. With good technique, my students and I can team up to accomplish anything from singing classical songs and even some opera arias to popular songs and musical theater. It is my goal to help you discover your own personal voice, and build confidence in your individual gifts. My students have gone on to study voice in college and university, perform in musical theater, sing in rock bands, children and adult choirs and even win a competition or two. I love hearing my students perform, and feel that an opportunity to sing in front of others builds confidence and ability. I take pride in arranging recitals for my students who would like this opportunity.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons with always begin with warm ups and technique. We'll also focus on an important principal topic, such as breath and support, vowel placement or expression. We'll use some exercises that I have already, or perhaps a new one just for your needs (once I get to know your voice) to help you achieve our goals. We'll then work on 1-2 songs. You'll probably have picked one, and I may have picked one. The concept that we worked on in our technique session will be applied directly to the songs you are working on. You can learn so many different things in each song, we may practice your songs, using a different goal in several different lessons.
All of my students get a chance to perform in occasional "vocal class" settings, where you can sing your favorite songs for one another, in a fun, laid back environment. All students are welcome to participate in an annual recital for their family and friends too! Piano lessons are designed to suit your needs. We can work on the basics for classical playing, read chords, jazz improv and more.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have my own music studio set up in my apartment. On teaching days, my living room can be a comfortable waiting room for parents/guardians. You are all most welcome to relax, have a cup of tea or coffee and listen to our lessons. I do ask that you do not sit inside the studio (at least not after the first lesson) as this can be distracting for your child. My studio is equipped with a music stand, upright piano, work sheets for theory, pencils and crayons. I also have a full Broadway and classical music library that students can borrow from, CD/DVD's that can be borrowed, and a New Grove Reference set.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring some music, until we assess the student's needs, then they may buy some books, while I provide the rest. I bring theory worksheets, stickers, pencils etc. If a student would like to sing/play a particular song (Broadway/pop etc) I may have it in my music library.If I do not, the student will need to purchase the music they would like to sing. The student would need a keyboard/piano in their home should I travel. I have a piano in my home.

*** Specialties ***
Classical singing, Musical Theater, Jazz, music for young children, , pop singing, audition preparation, beginning music for adults

Amelia L. New York, NY

Subjects Taught

Acting, French, Music Performance, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing, Speaking Voice

About Me

I am a freelance opera singer in New York City. I am a double Canadian-American citizen and I speak French and English fluently as well as being well versed in Italian and German. I have a B.F.A in music from Concordia University in Montreal, QC and have pursued diploma studies at Mannes College of Music in New York. I do not have a Masters degree, but my level of expertise is, in the least, matched, if not above a typical masters student in voice. I am happy to provide references of established musicians and teachers in the field that can attest to that. My own teacher, Metropolitan Mezzo Soprano, Heidi Skok, would certainly agree that I can really sing and I feel it is my responsibility to pass on the knowledge I have to others.

I am able to teach opera, classical, pop, jazz, musical theatre and rock.  In addition to piano and voice, I play guitar.

In terms of teaching, I have taught mostly privately in Montreal and a little in New York City. I would like to teach for a school as it provides a little more stability. I am a people person and a natural teacher. Everyone in my family works or has worked in the Education field, so it runs "in my blood"- I am able to explain concepts in multiple ways and tailor explanations to the students needs, so they can understand and feel happy at the end of the lesson. I generally use a "praise-criticize-praise" approach in corrections, as I find this positive technique delivers the best results.

I also have a ton of experience with children and am excellent with them. I have worked in the past as a part time nanny while attending school.

I would be delighted to work for you.

*** Lesson Details ***

French

About Me

Hi,
In addition to tutoring, I have been teaching French and other subjects in public schools for many years. I am certified to teach French in both New York and New Jersey schools. I have studied in France and visited many times.

I enjoy working with individual students in the tutoring environment. We always discuss what exactly what the areas are in which you need help.

French to me is much more than vocabulary and grammar. It is the essence of the cultures of the countries where it is spoken. I try to convey something of that fascinating culture as well.

Subjects Taught

Accompaniment, Classical Piano, Classical Voice, Ear Training, English, French, Music Performance, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing, Vocal Training

About Me

I have studied various genres of music under amazing teachers from the University of Oklahoma, SWOSU, St.Olaf, Eastman and Northwestern. I have completed 2 Bachelors Degrees and a Master's Degree in Vocal Performance and Church Music. My work over the last 10 years has been focused on collaborative piano for singers, church music, vocal and piano pedagogy and performance. I coach modern language diction for singers, and help with style and interpretation. If I'm in a coach/accompanist situation I know how to aid in the development of proper vocal technique without infringing upon voice teacher boundaries. I'm seeking students who desire to take their skills to the next level. All that is required is a passion for music and a willingness to learn. I offer a fun process that gives results, catering to the needs of each individual student.
