Judy is very compassionate, kind, and talented. She has such a positive way of uplifting and instilling confidence in her students.

Highly recommended.

Judy is not only an incredible teacher but a master herself in regards to her craft. I studied with her for eight years and it is her wonderful balance of knowledge, encouragement, personality, and technique that pushes her students to develop to the best of their ability. She is such a well rounded teacher who embraces her student's interests and still maintains a structured lesson plan in regards to musicianship and vocal technique. I can't recommend her enough!

I learned so much from Judy!

Judy Tomsko is the best voice teacher I've ever had - I learned so much about my vocal potential and music theory with her. She is such a sweet and caring person, which made it an amazing environment to learn and grow. I can genuinely say that Judy taught me so much of what I know today about vocals and she is a great mentor and friend. I highly recommend that you take lessons with her!

About Gregory

As a younger brother at the age of five, I began studying the piano because my older sister did. After my foundation in music strengthened I fell in love with the trumpet. At first, each note took time to develop and I enjoyed the challenge. The trumpet allowed me to travel all over the Southeast later in life and even to China with a 1940's Radio Show. I enjoyed many top-level bands the kindled my love and passion for good music. I want to share that kindling with my students in a nurturing and guiding situation, just like my teachers gave me. I used to go to lessons and become so motivated and inspired that I thought I could change the world. I always knew that I would want to give back exactly that. As my performance opportunities grew into venues like Churchill ...

I have studied music since I was seven years old, and I have a real passion for sharing music with others. I have 2 bachelors degrees in music, (one in music education, one in performance) from Brooklyn College, and a masters degree from Manhattan School of Music. I perform regularly around the world, and I use my real world experience to hone in on what you need to accomplish your musical goals. I have spent substantial time in New York City Public School music classrooms assisting and teaching with fellow instructors, and my private students have gained awards and admission to regional and state honor groups.

I have had three classes so far with David, but already from the first class I knew he was supreme! He is an excellent teacher and an excellent musician. What keeps impressing me is his ability in understanding exactly what I am doing wrong while I play just by hearing the sound of the trumpet. Super!

Besides being a fantastic vocalist, Monica is also a great teacher. She is very creative, patient and calm (no drama), but is still disciplined and persistent. She managed to get basic music theory into my thick skull and help me with sight reading, and did not yell at me when I didn't do my homework! The only downside is that she is so talented and well trained that she makes singing look effortless.

Monica is such a fantastic teacher. She is one of those people who really listens to the needs of the student, and gives her all at every lesson. Through her knowledge and experience, Monica has rebuilt my voice and my confidence from the bottom up. I highly recommend working with her!

Monica is a phenomenal teacher! She is incredibly affable and brings both joy and grace to each lesson. Her vocal knowledge and credentials are astounding! Monica has an incredible voice and her ability to demonstrate is immensely beneficial. I would highly encourage any singer, from beginner to advanced, to consider lessons with Monica!

About Michelle

Every student is unique, and I tailor my lessons to best meet their individual needs. It is important to me that students learn through lessons that are insightful, interactive and fun! :) I began teaching in 1999 and have students of all ages and experience levels. Most recently a student of mine booked a contract for the national tour of "A Christmas Story!" In addition to being a voice and piano teacher, I am also a professional performing artist, singing on stages both in NYC and all over the world. I have a graduate degree in music from the Peabody Conservatory. My musical training began in 1982 and has encompassed voice, flute and piano. I am happy to discuss pricing packages and the possibility of having lessons in your own home, as well as any additional scheduling ...

I can't say enough good things about Michelle! I've taken voice lessons for years, but since graduating college any formal study had fallen by the wayside. Then a friend asked me to sing in her wedding and I needed help getting ready. In just two months, Michelle helped me get out of my head and into my body in a way that I hadn't been able to get to before. Even though Michelle was helping me prepare specific pieces, her strategies and insight helped me to re-solidify my foundation for how I sing. With Michelle, I've been able to find a freedom and ease in my voice that hadn't been able to achieve before. She's skilled and effective, and just a lovely person on top of it all!

Michelle and I worked together on the National Tour of Oliver. When not on stage or traveling, we spent our hours talking vocal technique and working together on exercises conducted by Michelle. I was especially impressed by Michelle's ability to speak my language when it came to accessing my voice. She used her Alexander Technique training to get me out of my head allowing me to trust my own voice. The vocal freedom I was able to access with Michelle was so valuable and I am excited to work with her again.
