About Me

Born in Moldova, lyric soprano Galina S. has emerged as a young artist of remarkable versatility and great vocal beauty.

“Galina possesses a most glorious soprano voice… her contributions to music have always been of the highest caliber, amply demonstrating her vocal and intellectual flexibility and accomplishment… she is a great singer and performer.” (John Shirley-Quirk, International baritone)

Ms. S’s impressive voice and sensitive musicianship has lead to performances in numerous cities in the United States as well as Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Israel, Moldova, and St. Petersburg, Russia. Her repertoire encompasses a vast gamut and includes lieder, chamber music, oratorio, and opera, sung in various languages, including German, French, Italian, Russian, Czech, English, and Spanish.

Galina will be next heard as Amelia in Un ballo in maschera with Concert Opera Philadelphia, in March 2013. She will also sing the title role in Suor Angelica with OperaOggi NY in 2012/2013 season. Her most recent roles include Donna Anna in Don Giovanni (New York Lyric Opera Theater), Fiordiligi in Cos fan tutte, Nedda in I Pagliacci, Mim and Musetta in La Bohme, and Lauretta in Gianni Schicchi. Some of the other roles are Violetta in La Traviata, Tatiana in Eugene Onegin, the title role in Iolanta, Marfa in Tsar’s Bride, Pamina in Die Zauberflte, and Konstanze in Die Entfhrung aus dem Serail.

In oratorio Ms. S. has performed as a soprano soloist in the Lord Nelson Mass and Theresa Mass of Haydn, Handel’s Messiah, J. S. Bach’s Magnificat, and the Neue Liebeslieder, Opus 65 by Brahms. Her recital and chamber repertoire include songs and song cycles by Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Mussorgsky, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Dvořak, Manuel de Falla, Poulenc, and Messiaen.

Ms. S. has been the recipient of several awards and scholarships which include Washington International Competition in Washington DC, Center for Contemporary Opera Competition in New York, Giulio Gari Foundation International Vocal Competition in New York, New York Vocal Artists Competition, Peabody Conservatory Graduate Performance Diploma Scholarship and grant, and Mayor’s Scholarship from the University of Pennsylvania where Galina received her undergraduate degrees in music and computer science engineering. Galina has also been chosen to participate in the International Music Competition of the ARD in Munich.

Galina is a graduate of Peabody Conservatory of Music where she received a Master’s Degree in Vocal Performance, and University of Pennsylvania, which she finished with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music and Computer Science Engineering.

Ms. S. is a dedicated and enthusiastic voice teacher, who has been teaching for the past ten years. Many of her students have become soloists in their schools’ musical productions, and several went on to continue their studies at major conservatories. She has taught at Cabrini College, Settlement Music School, and is presently teaching at Leopold Mozart Academy. She also offers lessons out of her private studio at her home.

*** Lesson Details ***
My style of teaching is very straight forward. Students will first learn a proper breathing technique which is essential to good vocal production. The lessons always start with simple vocalizations, followed by repertoire appropriate to each student. The development and progress will greatly depend on students initial level and the time they spend practicing at home.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Steinway Grand Piano, Music Stand, Vocal Literature. Large room with hardwood floors, which provides wonderful acoustics for singing.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The student must have a piano or keyboard. I will bring music books.

*** Specialties ***
I have the most experience teaching classical voice - bel canto style of singing which concentrates on proper breathing technique and production of healthy unstressed sound.

Rosalind H. Coatesville, PA

Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, Classical Voice, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing

About Me

Hi, my name is Rosalind H. and I began my musical education at the age of ten, when I first started taking lessons. Since that time I have performed professionally as a singer in churches, cafes and at weddings and in venues including the Kimmel Center and Carnegie Hall during my college years with the renowned Westminster Symphonic Choir. After spending a year teaching children and adolescents aged 6-17 voice and piano while completing my Master™s of Arts in Music Therapy at Drexel University, I am now looking to take on private students in Chester County and surrounding areas.

I am a Westminster Choir College '11 Alum who graduated with a Bachelor's of Arts in Music, summa cum laude. I am also a Member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing and a Board Certified Music Therapist.

*Please be aware that I teach Beginners Piano. I do, however, teach all levels of voice, as long as the interested voice student is over at least the age of 8. Singing lessons for students younger than this age can be detrimental to a child's vocal development.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am available to travel to your house (piano students must have a piano or keyboard) or host you in my home

Piano students can expect to learn the basic music theory knowledge, including reading staff notation and lead sheets. I will also focus on fingering techniques and coordination.Students will be expected to practice theory knowledge and songs outside of lessons to help improve finger coordination and music-reading speed and accuracy.

I offerbeginning to advanced singing lessons for students interested in classical, operatic, Broadway and popular music and beginning piano lessons.I try to provide my students the opportunity to practice a wide range of skills when learning music.

Voice students will learn exercises to practice good breath control, posture and diction, all of which form the foundations of good singing. Students will be expected to practice these exercises outside of lessons, prior to practicing vocal literature, so as to develop good singing habits. About fifty percent of lesson time will be dedicated to technique, and the other fifty percent will be dedicated to learning vocal pieces. Dependent upon their level of knowledge, students may also be asked to watch videos of professional singers outside of lessons, so as to expand their musical understandings and aural sensitivity. These practices will enhance muscle coordination and breath control when singing, helping to enhance and improve pitch, timbre, expression and vocal range.

As a board certified music therapist, I often draw upon those skills I learned during my master's degree in music therapy, which taught me that music can have a profound effect on the human brain and upon cognitive development. My skills as a music therapist allow me to better understand a student's cognitive strengths and areas for improvement, and to develop individualized teaching strategies which utilize student strengths.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My home studio is equipped with keyboard, guitar and piano, as well as a sizable repertoire of classical, broadway and popular music. I am more than happy to help students find any music they may need for lessons that is not already in my library. I also own a portable keyboard that I use for out-of-studio voice students.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to provide a piano if they are receiving at piano lessons as it is needed for practice. I have a portable keyboard for voice students, but I strongly recommend that voice students record their lessons for reference during practice.

I recommend the following books for piano students (listed by age):
Ages 5-8:
My First Piano Adventure, Lesson Book A with by Nancy & Randall Faber
Ages 8-12:Piano Adventures - Level 1: Lesson Book [Book]Faber Piano Adventures

Ages 13 and up:

Adult All-In-One Course: Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course, Level ...by Willard A. Palmer

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical and operatic music (arias and art songs), but I am comfortable with a wide array of singing literature, as I believe that the technical foundations of good singing remain constant, regardless of the genre. I also have performed with a gospel/spiritual choir, as a soloist, during my college years.

General
 I have a dog. She is Hypo-allergenic, 4 pounds full grown, and very friendly.
