Private Opera Voice Teacher

My teaching method focuses on good breathing, vocal support, forward placement, clear diction, and freedom of sound. This technique has a classical base, but can be applied to a variety of musical styles. In addition to exploring contrasting musical styles such as classical music and musical theatre, students also learn to read music and study basic music theory. Students receive a well-rounded education in vocal technique and good musicianship so they will be able to sing all types of music.

About Jonathan

Teaching philosophy: Taking voice lessons can be a very exciting and wonderful learning experience. It does take dedication and hard work, but can be quite rewarding in the long run. There are many different genres of music and therefore various styles of singing. Although there are no set rules

An expert in Vocal coaching. He is able to customize his lesson plan to best suite your goals as a vocalist! I have done 3/5 lessons with this guy & I have gotten more than my money's worth. I can hear the improvement in my tone & breathe control already!
Marc
I have been studying classical voice with Jonathan for well over two years. His knowledge of vocal production and technique is superb, but more importantly he is a humble and approachable teacher. We've added a lot to my opera repertoire as well as my musical theater book for auditions, and my voice has discovered real strength and power (I've always been told that I'm a bass-baritone, but with Jonathan's instruction I've found safe ways to hit the top notes I need in MT and the power I need in my middle register for opera). Plus he's got a fantastic apartment on the upper east side overlooking gracie square park and the east river, with a great space to sing out, an upright piano for accompaniment and a great vocal music library. Highly recommend!

I love teaching and I have been doing it for 14 years. I started teaching as an adjunct professor at Florida State University while receiving my Masters degree in vocal performance. I have gone on to sing with small Opera companies, Universal Studios, and cruise ships. However, teaching is something that I remain passionate about. For me it is rewarding to see my students grow as performers and become stronger singers.

My daughter (12 years) had classes with Alexsandra 5 days this week. Alexsandra was very accomodating with her schedule and helped us fit in 5 lessons this week. We were very happy with the instruction she provided. She is a good teacher, knowledgable and did a great job helping my daughter prepare for an audition.

I love Roberta. She is so knowledgeable, professional and friendly...a wonderful combination to have in a teacher. She is patient and thorough. I would highly recommend her.
Beverly
Roberta is everything you would want in a teacher. She is exceptionally talented herself and knows how to share her knowledge with others. She is especially very kind and nurturing in an environment which could be quite intimidating for a beginner like me. You can tell she truly enjoys teaching and gets excited to see her pupil learn. I have learned so much in a short time.

Online Opera Voice Teacher

As a bass opera singer and professional voice over artist, I am dedicated to creating a healthy and beautiful sound with my own voice and the voices of my students. I will not come into our lessons saying there is a single way to sing. In fact, many genres require a great deal of varying vocal techniques and stylized voices. What I will do is help to lay a foundation in healthy singing so that you feel comfortable singing any genre. We will start by ensuring that your breath and vowel placement feels comfortable and from there move into repertoire of your choosing or some that I recommend based upon your interests. You will leave your tenure with me empowered to continue your passion and career for singing long after your lessons end. Music is meant to be shared. Together, we will help you to share the music and passion that you hold so dear.

Our 13-year-old son sings in the Philadelphia Boys Choir. He wants to transition into musical theater and Matt has gone out of his way to help my son with this singing, but also accessing opportunities to grow as a performer.

I can’t say enough great things about Matthew! He has been an amazing teacher - his technical expertise, his tremendous patience, and his ability to explain in simple terms and help me understand proper vocal technique has been instrumental in my development. I’m grateful to have found Matthew - he has shown a level of support and commitment to my goals that I haven’t seen in other teachers and I am excited to continue working with him, as I know that with his guidance I’ll achieve them.

"If you are looking for someone to not only teach you how to sing, but how to perform, Lauren is your woman. She is someone who not only has an extensive knowledge about the human voice and the art of singing but also knows how to command a stage. If you have any doubts, just look at her performance resume, and you'll see she's no stranger to a stage. She has taught me so much about performance and can teach you how to own the stage. She is a kindhearted person and will work her hardest to help you succeed in whatever musical path you choose."

Although it may feel like baby-steps, you can hear and feel changes in your voice almost immediately . Studying Opera Voice is a long road of very hard work, so much to remember. There is a reason 4 year degrees are offered in it. But it is well worth it for those who have the stamina."

"I am a retired professor. It is always my dream to be able to sing some day, but I was intimidated by the technical requirements involved in singing until I met Linda. She is a wonderful singing coach, knowledgeable, honest, patient, and inspiring at the same time. Not only she has amazing voice, but also has very good ear and can immediately tell whenever one is off tune or not. Linda combines rigorous demand for perfection with warm encouragement and repeated demonstration of how to improve. I am blessed that I had her as my coach. After having just taken a course on bel canto offered by her recently, I feel that I really have learnt enormously about breathing, resonance, vibration, Italian pronunciation, and several beautiful songs, among others. I most strongly recommend Linda without any reservation to any one who is thinking to learn how to sing."

8 Beautiful Opera Arias for Beginner Singers

It is always exciting when a vocal student is ready to start studying his or her first operatic aria! One of the best things about being a classical singer is knowing you have so many great years ahead of you. After all, you’re considered in your prime in your 40s. That being said, realize that the voice you have now and the repertoire you’ll first study will be very, very different from what you sing later on in your career. It’s absolutely crucial that you sing repertoire that is …
