Laura K. New York, NY

Whether you need tutoring for a class or a basic explanation of the nuts and bolts of music!

About Laura

Music is definitely the universal language, and there isn't a genre I don't love; it's important to me that that aspect be brought to lessons, as well! From humble New Jersey beginnings to an opera career, I've seen the power of what music can do! Whether it's opera, musical theater, folk, rock, or just public speaking, anything YOU love to do, I would love to teach you! Having taught all ages and levels, from first graders to adults, from someone who's never sung a note in his or her life to semi-professionals, I cater my lessons to what YOU as a student need and are interested in. Lessons shouldn't be a chore - I like to foster an environment you look forward to being a part of! I also think that music, like any sport, is hard work, and takes seriously practice; even hobbies take ...

Awesome teacher! patient, knowledgeable, & creative

I'm a complete beginner, could barely sing in tune. I decided to take lessons for fun. but whoa was i surprised at the progress I've made with Laura in just a few short months. She has catered to my individual needs, and has made my learning experience fun. She works at my pace so i never feel rushed or bored. She teaches singing lessons in a way anyone can understand. Her background in opera means she can sing and teach her students amazing vocal range. She taught me anything is possible with hard work and dedication! I've learned so much with her, it's hard to put it all in a short review. Pick her and you won't be disappointed! Thank you Laura!

Great teacher

Laura is a really good and nice teacher. She is patient to answer all of my questions.I improved a lot in a short period of time with her tips on singing. She's not only just teach you how to sing, she also talks some histories of music and different examples or even her experiences to me. She can make an exercise into a fun way to do. I learned a lot from her and I gain more confident on singing. I'm always looking forward to take lessons with her. She's such a great singer and vocal coach!! Laura is a great choice for those of you who want to learn singing in a comfortable, no pressure and fun environment. ^_^

Opera Voice · In home
Chelsea aside from her amazing operatic voice, happens to be an excellent teacher. She has studied and trained with some of the top names in the business and has been able to incorporate these various professional coaching techniques into her own style. Chelsea has performed, soloed and auditioned and knows the drill. She is patient and offers excellent and professional guidance. I would recommend her to anyone considering voice lessons for the first time, or looking for a new teacher.

Jim T. New York, NY

Some musicians love the study of music theory and some dread it. I believe the knowledge of intervals, scales, chords, rhythms, structure, instrumentation, and compositional technique is a powerful tool for opening up one's musical potential. Composers, arrangers, performers, engineers, and dancers all benefit from a deep understanding of musical language. We develop this understanding through ear training, technical and creative exercises, and analysis of great music, and we focus our study on those areas most relevant to the students interests. I taught advanced placement and beginning theory classes at the high school level for 12 years, wrote a textbook on the subject. Some of my students could not read music when they started and were prepared for collegiate music study by the end of the year. Some came to the class with knowledge of the subject, found new challenges they had never experienced through our studies, and went on to study composition at top tier music schools. I look

Composition · In studio
Jim is not only creative in his own work, but also incredibly inspiring. As a young composer who worked with him for almost two years, I can personally say Jim is as great a teacher as he is a composer. He can work with any type of music and is always energetic in his approach to teaching. He also integrates theory into his lessons and works to help you grow both as a composer and musician. My compositions developed and grew in my time with Jim as I'm sure anyone else's will as well. I would absolutely recommend Jim as a teacher and mentor.

Jim is very easy to work with. I have watched him work with students of all ages and he is very patient and nurturing. I've also hired him to write some original compositions for my school. Jim is very talented and his work is thorough and always on time. He will also schedule time to work with your students. Jim is very open to ideas and suggestions. If you are thinking about learning about composition or improving your writing Jim is the composer for you!
