I am a professional actress/ singer/ songwriter and directer. I employ my many years of experience as a performing artist, to help my students develop what is unique and compelling with in them. I believe that everyone has something of value to express. The key is finding creative ways to unleash it.
I have been a voice teacher for over twenty- five years. My background includes ten years of classical training with Maestro Julio Berrocal as well as vocal training through the Feldekrais approach with Marcy Lindhiemer. In acting I have studied with renowned Stanislavsky scholar Sonia Moore and Master acting teacher of the Strasberg Method, Marcia Haufrecht. I believe we all have something distinctive that can be developed and expressed through the voice. I work to help the student discover their individual and unique sound. I give them tools to gain the ability and confidence to achieve their goals. I empathize deeply with the challenges that students face both in studying voice and performance since I have been a professional singer for many years. Through my personal experience in ...
My philosophy is that good actors do not "act", but "do" - the key to an effective portrayal of a character is to figure out what he or she wants, and get it!
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 ...

NYC teacher, director, producer - Founder of Nicu's Spoon Theater Company. Have taught audition classes, techniques, dialect and accent coaching, acting classes, etc. for 14 years in NYC.
Have taught literally ANY dialect and can teach it to you too. Also can work with you remove an accent. Worked with kids and adults on preparing an audition that works for you! Have extensive experience working with disabled and special needs artists.
I have been coaching and directing productions for over 20 years. I have a studio set up in my home to avoid the claustrophobic nature of a "closet" studio in midtown to coach and assist people with bettering their auditions and fleshing out songs and materials so nothing new is presented at an audition.
I am a stage director, pianist and acting coach. I can prep nearly anyone to make an audition more successful and have sat through countless auditions for musical theatre and opera. I think everyone needs a second opinion, or third, or fourth on how their auditions look and sound and, most importantly, HONEST advice on what to do better.
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
