About Me

I am a classically trained singer living, working, and teaching in NYC. I have a degree in vocal performance from The University of Maryland at College Park. While in the D.C. Metro area I performed as a chorister and soloist at The National Shrine, Metropolitan A.M.E Church, and the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. My exposure to a wide range of music, from baroque to contemporary gospel and musical theater, has strongly influenced my teaching. My goal is always to help a student develop their own understanding and experience of singing in a way that is fun, interactive, and personal while also progressively building a strong technique.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are generally split between technical work/ warm-ups and repertoire. I like to adapt my concepts to a students individual personality and capability, in that sense I am flexible about the approach taken achieve optimal results. Every singer thinks and communicates differently and I see it as my job to figure out what will work best for you. I think that a foundation in a classical approach gives students the biggest tool kit with which to work. Once the fundamentals are firmly established, that singer then has the ability to approach any style of music in a way that is healthy and secure.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Programmable Digital Piano and Recording Equipment.

*** Specialties ***
The approach I take to the voice is based in the tradition of classical bel canto singing. It is always my goal to help students understand how to use their breath and body to produce sound that is free of tension and, therefore, beautiful.

About Me

I started my musical training as a pianist at YAMAHA institute at age 4 in Japan. I was selected to enter perfect pitch class. It was designated for students who have perfect pitch and potentials to be professional musicians.

I enjoyed playing piano and electric piano and won the 1st prize at Kitakantou Electric Piano Competition hosted by YAMAHA institute. Because of the intensive training, I have been accompanying my students' recitals and performance exams.

As much as I enjoyed playing piano, I discovered that I also love singing, so I started to take singing lessons and majored in vocal performance during my college days.

Since I have graduated, I have been performing opera professionally. My career highlights include roles as Pamina (Die Zauberflöte) with Opera Manhattan Studio, Frasquita (Carmen) with One World Symphony, Zerlina (Don Giovanni) and Clorinda (La Cenerentola) with Capitol Heights Opera, Alice (Le comte Ory) with West Side Opera Society, Adele (Die Fledermaus), Susanna (Le Nozze di Figaro), and Myrrhine (Lysistrata) with Opera Avanti, Gilda (Rigoletto) with Académie Internationale d'Eté de Nice, and The First Spirit (Die Zauberflöte) with the Opera Company of Brooklyn.

My international credits include studies at the Académie Internationale d'Eté de Nice, France; the Daniel Ferro Vocal Program in Chianti, Italy; the International Vocal Arts Institute in Tel Aviv, Israel; and an appearance at the Young Artist Concert Series in Tokyo, Japan.

As a versatile singer, I was presented as an aspiring opera singer on the website of Maybelline New York. My voice was featured in short films for NEC, the Japanese technology company.

I was also a finalist at the Opera Idol Competition at Lincoln Center, the Hariclea Darclée Voice Competition in Romania, and the Mario Lanza and Elaine Malbin Vocal Competition.

Besides being an opera singer, I have been teaching piano and voice for 9 years and would like to share my skills and experience with you. Since I perform often, I can coach you how to perform on stage in addition to building solid technique and languages. Also, I have taught various kinds of music, such as Rock, Broadway musicals, Pop music, so we can work on all kind of music.

I look forward to teaching you soon!

*** Lesson Details ***
My students can expect to improve their skills and start to enjoy music more as we work together.
I believe that learning music is fun and enjoyable. However you also need to be serious and focused.
I can demonstrate various and specific techniques, phrasing, and interpretation and will always coach on how to develop your skills. However, I feel it is important for students to think critically on their own and take the first try at solving a problem themselves. I cannot emphasize enough that primarily it is you who find the ways to improve. Leaning music is a collaboration between teachers and students. I hope that through my lessons, students will become more self-sufficient and confident as musicians.
Let me help you become a better musician.

About Me

Hi everyone! My name is Ben and I recently moved to New York City after completing my Masters of Music degree from Georgia State University in Atlanta, GA. While in the Southeast, I had incredible success performing leading roles in musical theater and operatic repertoire. At the same time, I held a voice and piano studio of 10 students and each student saw marked improvement within just a few lessons. In the summer of 2010, I worked in Red Mountain Theatre Company’s production of The Sound of Music based out of Birmingham, AL. I performed Rinuccio in Gianni Schicchi and Tamino in Die Zauberflöte at the Harrower Summer Opera Workshop, both directed by Carroll Freeman in 2011 and 2012, where I also participated in opera scenes from Pique Dame, Lakmé, and L’Italiana in Algeri. During the Harrower Summer Opera Workshop, I received private coachings from faculty at the Juillard School, University of the Bahamas, and Maestro Frank Hube from Germany. I have performed with the Georgia State University Opera Theater as Kaspar in Amahl in the Night Visitors, Don Basilio in Le Nozze di Figaro, Laurie in Little Women, and Peter Quint in Turn of the Screw. I also appeared as Don Ottavio in Don Giovanni directed by W. Dwight Coleman at Valdosta State University. I am a recent Grand Prize-1st Place recipient of the GA-NATS Musical Theatre Award and the Graduate Level Men Classical Voice Award and I have recently returned home from a musical exchange program at Renmin University, China.

As you can see, I am well versed in many different styles of performing and I will do my best to share my knowledge that I've gained from my experiences. I promise that in my lessons, you will discover your voice and have tons of fun doing it!!!

*** Lesson Details ***
For all lessons, I focus on a foundation of technique that starts with freedom. In all forms of performing, you have to let your body go and free yourself of any unnecessary tension. In singing, for example, we will work on freeing up tension in the throat, jaw, neck, etc. by making sure you are singing pure vowels, taking a deep and expanded breath, and letting the voice do its thing. Once we build on that foundation, we will work on artistry techniques to make you stand out as a solid performer to become the best you can be and start making your dreams come true.

It is important to me that when you leave a lesson, you feel like you've accomplished something and that you have fun doing it. That is a mission of mine and I know that I can make that happen for you. In my lessons, there is no pressure to do anything you do not want to do. I want to cater to whatever you would like to accomplish in lessons. That means we can work on anything you would like to work on! Hakuna Matata!

*** Studio Equipment ***
At Ben's Private Studio, there will be a Yamaha Grand Piano to use. For Private Lessons, I suggest you bring a voice recorder, pencil, a bottle of water, and a three ring binder for handouts.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Private Lessons will only be offered at Ben's Private Studio

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in musical theater and operatic singing. I also specialize in choral technique.

About Me

Hi! My name is Allison and I'm an opera singer. I fell madly in love with music and singing as a young child and was bitten by the opera bug at age 15. Ever since seeing that first opera, I've never looked back. I did lead roles in my high school musicals, then got my Bachelor of Music and my Master of Music degrees in Classical Voice and Opera Performance both from competitive conservatories. Ever since graduation, I've been lucky enough to make my work as a professional singer. I've traveled all over the country and even internationally bringing this amazing art form to audiences. Now I feel like my dream has come true because I get to do what I love: sing! Pavarotti said, "I think a life in music is a life beautifully spent and this is what I have devoted my life to." I feel so lucky to have a life in music and now I want to share everything I've learned with you.

*** Lesson Details ***
During a voice lesson with me, we'll warm up and do vocal exercises for the first half, then we'll learn new music together or work on music you've already learned. I love teaching all styles of classical music and working in many different languages including French, German, Italian, English, and more. I teach lyric diction of all of these languages and the styles of each composer. Above all, lessons with me are relaxed and really fun!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room w/ electronic piano and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students must have a keyboard of some kind, whether it be an electric keyboard or piano.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Classical Vocal Technique. I feel very comfortable assigning repertoire of any difficulty and I am especially confident in my lyric diction knowledge of Italian, French, German, and English. I can teach audition preparation and audition technique, as well as acting and stage technique for singers.

About Me

I began singing before I could even walk. I started choir when I was eight years old and never left. In high school I was part of the auditioned jazz choir, Soprano I section leader, assistant vocal coach and vice president of the TRI-M music honor society. In my senior year I was president of the drama club and played Mrs. Potts in "Beauty and the Beast". I have performed several times in the All-County chorus as well as at the Kennedy Space Center and Universal Studios in Orlando. Now I am a Music Education major at Adelphi University where I participate in the Opera Workshop! My students always come first and I strive to give them everything they need to succeed as musicians.

*** Lesson Details ***
I understand that everybody is unique and create a customized lesson plan for each student. Whether it is NYSSMA season or drama auditions, we will work on what you need in order to have a successful career as a musician. At the end of each lesson there will be a sight-singing example. I will give you several easy tips that will not only make sight-singing easy, but fun as well!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in opera! Diction is very important to me. Before singing I have my students talk through the piece they are working on to make sure their Latin and Italian is 100% correct! I also strive to make my students musically literate. I give them a sight reading example with three easy steps to follow that always results in success!
