Specific & clear in her instructions, open to feedback, patient and encouraging, courteous and respectful - not to mention a great singer. Looking forward to future lessons with Deborah.

I was pretty nervous about taking a singing lesson, as it's something I've never done in my life. I'm so thankful I got connected to Deborah. She's a fantastic teacher and taught me so much about how our body works to produce sounds when singing and what I am doing. From the first lesson I was already given helpful tips and ways to practice things on my own! I'm looking forward to more lessons with Deborah.

Singing can be lots of fun, but the study of voice can seem obscure and even mystical to the uninformed. Some pieces of the puzzle are completely beyond our conscious control (i.e. the larynx), some are accessed indirectly (i.e. the breath), and others are readily available and right in front of us, but we don't think to target these (i.e. our stance). My lessons link student goals with positive outcomes by developing understanding and application of healthy vocal habits, production, and presentation of repertoire that fits and flatters the voice.

About Matt

I am a professional singer who has proficiencies in piano, organ, choral directing, musical analysis, and ear training/playing by ear. I currently teach both high school and college students.

Just starting lessons with Matt, but he seems very to have great knowledge about how to teach students to grow in their vocal skills. He is very enthusiastic and positive, but honest in his assessment of skills which is important to vocalists who truly WANT to improve their skills. The initial lesson experiences have been really beneficial. Looking forward to continuing lessons with Matt!

I worked with Michelle for a little over 2 years. As an adult student, I was super nervous about singing in front of anyone - it took me this long to just sign up for lessons! She was patient with me and gave me lots of tools for dealing with my nerves and stage fright. Michelle helped me to choose songs that I not only wanted to sing but that matched my voice and range. I was hesitant about performing in a recital but Michelle pointed out that it was like training for a marathon - doing all the work but not performing just seemed silly. It wasn't perfect but it was definitely something I'm proud to have crossed off my bucket list.

Hi, there!

My name is Sarah-Kate, and I have been teaching vocal lessons for many years. My goal is to make learning fun and productive. I know that singing in front of someone can cause anxiety, so I aim to make my lessons as laid-back and stress-free as possible (while still learning!). I tell my students that their lessons are a "judgement-free zone."

I teach proper singing technique (including breathing, posture, tonality, etc.) and how to read music if the student doesn't already know. The styles I teach run the gamut from pop to musical theater to classical. Especially for younger/beginning students, I like to let them choose what they'd like to sing (while offering guidance if necessary).

I have taught people from age five up through adults. Whether you want to be the next American Idol or just sound better in the shower, I'm your teacher!

I have a degree in music (voice and cello) with additional certification in music therapy. Looking forward to hearing from you!

"Pedro Tirado is a gifted, insightful voice teacher/coach. He knew exactly what was hindering my vocal development and how to correct it. His explanations were clear and on point. Within only a few lessons my voice was significantly healthier, it was bigger and more flexible. He got me to sing up to an E6, five notes I didn't know I had after a lifetime of choral singing, mostly as a soprano. Although I had taken voice lessons before, I made more progress in three months with Pedro Tirado than I made in an entire year with another teacher. If you want to uncover your voice's full potential, go to Pedro."

"I am absolutely delighted to have Nancy as my son’s teacher. My son is a high school student in Hastings on Hudson. He has been studying with Nancy for the past 4 years. We have seen him grow as a singer develop his vocal skills and his confidence, under Nancy’s patient and experienced tutelage. With Nancy, my son has excelled, playing leading roles in his school musical performances and more recently, auditioning successfully for the NYSSMA all state chorus performance in Rochester. We we were lucky to have crossed paths with Nancy. We highly recommend her as a teacher."

"Michelle is an amazing teacher! I have had 8 lessons and am so happy with my progress. I am 53 years old, and have been singing since high school. But, I have never taken voice lessons, and therefore, have not been singing correctly all these years. She and her husband Robert are teaching me a whole new way of singing. It is like teaching an old dog new tricks, but they are so good at explaining things and are so supportive, encouraging and fun! It is my one hour of therapy a week. They are helping me find my new voice, and I am loving it. Highly recommend."

"I’ve been working with Carla for several years. Over that time, I’ve had the opportunity to explore several vocal styles - jazz, musical theater, classical - and have performed on stage and even won a competition.

She’s patient with my desire to learn different ways of singing. She’s taught me how to control my voice so I can sing straight tone or float my high notes. I am always impressed by how well she can explain techniques to the average person so you can actually translate it into a really cool sound.

I’ve been so impressed, my children now take lessons and are having success at community auditions. I highly recommend Carla for her ability to work with all ages, levels, and styles."
