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

Interpretation in any instrument is an important part of good music-making - I coach instrumentalists and singers of all levels on how to make the most of their performance!

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.

I've known Christian for a few years. We went to school together and have done a decent amount of playing together. He's very professional, talented, and knows what he's doing. Hes a top rated teacher and player. Anyone studying with him will learn a lot from him. Very highly recommended.

My 11 year-old son is taking beginner tuba lessons with Christian. He was getting very frustrated in band but even after just a few lessons has improved significantly and is much more confident during band practice. Christian has shown a lot of patience with him and encourages him to progress rather than hang out and play what he is already comfortable with.

And as a mom, I LOVE Skype lessons. I was a little worried that the lack of 'hands-on' could be an issue but it is not at all. We started with just 5 lessons, but I anticipate many more:)

I had my first lesson on Saturday the 13th, I was in a lot of doubt about taking lessons on line. I was not setup for it all the way my lab top was not putting out no sound. I was saying to myself here we go half of my lesson spent on fixing mechanical problems, but that was not the case. Christian figured it out with no problem and before you knew it I was into my first lesson. Christian was great we went over some different things and I was playing again. It felt really good to be playing notes with someone there to critique your performance good or bad. My goa is to get better each week. Thanks Christain
