Excellent!

Two months of lessons have proven very productive. I have seen great improvement in my daugher's abilities and confidence. Barbee is mild in her ways yet tenacious; always pushing to the next level. I like that I am able to sit through the lesson. The classes run on schedule. Barbee is responsive to calls/texts and is flexible with schedule changes.

Laura K. New York, NY

Opera is my first love, and I love helping students learn and experience their voices for the first time in this beautiful art form. I also have a keen ear for experienced singers, and have a holistic approach to singing and breathing to help iron out problems in the voice.

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 ...

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. ^_^

Briana S. New York, NY

Hello prospective student! =)

Here are the basics about my lessons:

Singing should always be a rewarding experience for the singer. The freer the voice is, the better the singing feels. But how do we find vocal freedom? Self-knowledge, technique, practice habits, and attitude, for starters...

Some of the areas of singing we'll work on are
- relaxation
- body awareness
- breathing
- resonance
- articulation
- intonation
- rhythm
- style
- stagecraft

We'll use exercises from my background in general music and studies of the "Italian School" of classical singing. We'll also draw from the Feldenkrais Method, yoga, acting and theater techniques, and what I've learned as a certified Music Together teacher.

Other topics we can cover are:
- basics of Italian, German and French language, and lyric diction for these languages and English
- concentration and overcoming nerves
- healthy lifestyle habits for performers

About Briana

As a voice teacher, I draw on my experience as a professional opera singer and actor, my teaching background in various areas (music, theatre, yoga, fitness, literature, etc.), and my training in classical singing, musical theater, acting, and various methods of body work. I strive to create an environment of mutual respect that is fun and safe, where students can take risks, learn to challenge themselves productively, and find increased joy and freedom in expression. Self-awareness/body-awareness, relaxation, and nurturing of individuality are emphasized above all.

My teaching philosophies and techniques draw primarily from my study of movement and mindfulness through disciplines such as yoga, and especially the Feldenkrais Method, "a remarkable approach to human movement, ...

In what is surely a testament to her teaching ability, Briana's passions for music and learning - independently or in combination - are infectious. Briana understands the importance of treating and training the complete singer, addressing both the student's both physical/technical and personal/artistic capacities. She is versatile, open-minded, empathetic, and always delightful. I am honored to be her colleague and happy to recommend her.

Briana is an excellent and inspiring teacher to work with. In my experience, she brings a sense of excitement to the subject of singing that is contagious and motivated me to put my best foot forward not just in our meetings, but also in my practicing at home. Beyond repertoire and technique, her expertise extends into the physical and emotional aspects of singing. She is incredibly sensitive to where the student is coming from, and is able to meet him/her at that level. The ideas she shared have stuck with me and continue to help me as I develop further.

Classical Voice · In studio
Cabiria was my studio vocal instructor for three semesters at Binghamton University and I consider myself extremely lucky to have had her for a teacher. She is not only a captivating performer but also an extraordinary vocal coach. I am a Broadway belter at heart and did not think I could ever learn proper classical technique. After struggling for years, I had stopped performing classical pieces because I was not confident enough in my abilities. After working with Cabiria for only a few weeks I discovered that much of the difficulty I had been experiencing was the result of bad habits that I wasn't aware of (such as improper placement, breath support, and pushing). Cabiria transformed me from a alto belter with limited range into a lyrical soprano with a three octave range up to the D6! I would highly recommend her to beginners and professionals alike.

Vocal Training · In studio
I sing in some community groups and have been singing all my life (not professionally). I decided I wanted lessons because I was feeling like my voice was strained and not flexible. Cabiria was really great. I took a set of 8 lessons. She put me at ease and helped me limber up my voice and increase my range while working on voice placement. She kept it light and fun and still gave me the basis of good vocal technique. I now feel I have tools to work with on my own. I totally recommend her.

An exemplary performer

Cabiria is an outstanding performer, musician, and colleague whom I regard as one of the finest people I have had the pleasure to perform with. She is extremely dedicated to her craft and has been noted for her nuanced musicianship. In addition, she is a hilarious person who brings her personality to each character she embodies. I have seen her work as performer and know her as a person off stage, and I truly believe that she is the type of person who is able to communicate to others how they can improve their singing.
Cabiria is a person whom I recommend without question, and whom I look forward to singing with for years to come.
