Elliott A.

New York, NY

With students who have a classical focus, I spend considerable time developing a firm technical foundation. Lessons are adapted to the needs of the student on a weekly basis so that the knowledge gained is cumalitive. I believe that it is essential for a classical singer to be wholly aware of how their voice functions, and to have the tools necessary to gain full ownership of their singing.

About Elliott

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.

In need of a vocal coach, I searched the Takelessons website and by what I call devine guidance I selected Elliott A. He has been my coach for a little over a year now and I would highly recommend him for his qualifications, passion for singing and his incredible teaching gift. Elliott provides a comfortable environment and really goes extra miles to ensure that concepts he teaches are practically understood. I started with many bad singing habits and poor technique and now I can definitely see great improvement in my technique and vocal freedom. I look forward to continue working with him until and beyond reaching my goal of greatness. In my opinion he's simply the BEST.

Elliot is a gem! He is everything I wanted in an instructor!

I met Elliot through a friend who is also taking lessons from him. As a beginner I was very specific in what I wanted in a teacher--someone who is patient, kind, structured and has no problem starting with the very basic fundamentals in singing. Elliot took me on as a student and has proven to be everything I could have hoped to find in a teacher! Lesson after lesson I feel more confident and capable. I feel stronger in my voice and become more and more excited for singing. Elliot's knowledge of singing technique are showcased throughout the lesson as he explains exactly what is needed to be adjusted in your technique and his patience is key to a full understanding of what is needed to be done. I highly recommend Elliot to any singer looking to train their voice, maintain technique, or broaden their range!

The total package

I have been studying with Elliott for almost two years now and I could not be happier with the progress that we have made. Not only is he very good at communicating what I need to improve upon in the lesson, but also to help me to understand myself so that I remember and make it a habit. He's very reliable and professional, but also he makes a comfortable environment where one feels at ease and never afraid to voice opinions or concerns. I cannot wait to see where this next year takes us. :) He's also great with giving a healthy balance of encouragement in addition to critique.

Nina R.

New York, NY

ce students have ranged from beginners, to advanced classical, musical theater, r&b and rock singers looking to learn how to sing with a healthy technique.
To learn more of Nina's performing experiences please visit her website at ninarileysoprano.com

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons vary from student to student depending on age and level, and interest of repertoire.
Ages 6- 12 voice lessons are kept fun but also with a firmness with pitch, breathing, and rhythm and vowel usage details.
The older the student, the more detail on technique.
The start of all lessons begin with warm ups, and afterward we will sing an appropriate song and learn how to apply the warm ups to the song.
After 3-6 months, voice students will sing songs easier with a freer sound, knowing better how to approach high notes, and building their repertoire. If the first lesson was starting from scratch and learning simply to sing in tune, the student will be able to sing a song in tune within a year.
For piano students there would be the same steady progress. A little more homework to practice but an understanding and flexibility with different practice situations.

*** Studio Equipment ***
weighted keyboard, sustain pedal, music stand

*** Specialties ***
Classical voice, Broadway, Pop, R&B. There is a focus on healthy technique that will apply to any style. Ear training is also a focus.

Chelsea aside from her amazing operatic voice, happens to be an excellent teacher. She has studied and trained with some of the top names in the business and has been able to incorporate these various professional coaching techniques into her own style. Chelsea has performed, soloed and auditioned and knows the drill. She is patient and offers excellent and professional guidance. I would recommend her to anyone considering voice lessons for the first time, or looking for a new teacher.

Sara's experience in vocal training allows her to identify what would benefit your voice. She has different warm ups and techniques that will aid you not just in the sound you are looking for but prepare you for all types of singing. What I really like about these lessons is that I have pinpointed the weaknesses in my technique, that I myself could not identify, and that I leave with the ability to work on those weaknesses . Sara is really cool and down to earth making it it a comfortable environment to work in. Lastly, she has a singing cat which you need to see...I kid you not.

About Luis

I have been teaching privately for twelve years. I enjoy teaching students of all ages. My school-aged students have earned awards pertaining to their instrument at school and district music competitions. Lessons are normally once per week for one hour. My time in music school has given me the skills and confidence to teach so many musical subjects. I like to inspire students to achieve their goals by giving them the tools to succeed. There is a lot of hard work, but most importantly, we have lots of fun. Please send me message if you have any questions. Thanks!

Luis was a wonderful colleague to have. As music education majors we both had to learn multiple instruments. Luis took the time to teach my bass and helped me practice for performance exams. He would break down lessons to a beginner's level for me and always remained patient during my lesson.

As a colleague I feel that Luis's strongest point is his clear communication skills. I was constantly impressed with how well able he was to communicate his thoughts and feelings openly and forwardly to other. He was clearly able to do this without feeling vulnerable and while maintaining respect for himself others. I highly recommend him for teaching based on his interpersonal skills and musical knowledge.
