Veronica C.

Philadelphia, PA

About Veronica

With a voice that has been described as €œexquisite, sublime, and pure beauty, soprano Veronica has performed with opera companies and orchestras across the country while keeping firm roots in her hometown of Philadelphia. She has performed with small choruses and full orchestras, in intimate outdoor venues and major opera houses. She is an Artist in Residence at Temple University and has sung as a core member of many local choral ensembles, but frequently travels outside of the area to perform.

Recently returned from Shenandoah Bach Festival€™s Mozart C minor mass, and her first Countess w
ith the Shenandoah Bach Festival€™s concert version Le nozze di Figaro. 2010-2011 season also took Veronica on tour for the Northeast Louisiana / Union Parish Arts Councilâ™s Amazing Grace (featuring music of various religions, time periods and styles).

In 2008-2009 Veronica sang the role of the High Priestess for Opera Birmingham’s Aida, and added several new roles to her repertoire, including Liu (Turandot) with Opera Birmingham, the title role in Lakme with Concert OPERA of Philadelphia and Nedda (I Pagliacci) with Sycamore Opera and The Cousin (Madama Butterfly) with the Opera Company of Philadelphia. Of her finessed and dramatic portrayal of Liu, the press remarked that (she) sang passionately in the tear-jerking Act 1 aria, "Signore, ascolta," her final high pianissimo notes suspended in pure beauty. In Act 3, she provided one of the opera's most startling and poignant moments when she stabbed herself at the end of "Tu che di gel." She also performed a recital of opera and Broadway favorites to open Opera Birmingham€™s performance season and traveled to Louisiana to celebrate the holidays as a soloist for the Northern Louisiana / Union Parish Arts Council€™s I™ll Be Home for Christmas concerts.

Veronica performed two roles in Porgy and Bess in 2008, singing Clara with Opera Birmingham and Lilly with Lyric Opera of Chicago. She also appeared with Opera Delaware as Gianetta in The Gondoliers and won fifth place and audience favorite in the Opera Birmingham Vocal Competition.

2007 was a year of rave reviews for Veronica on both the opera and the concert stage. Of Opera Birmingham€™s production of Cenerentola, Michael Huebner of The Birmingham News remarked "The role of Clorinda was engagingly sung, Veronica milked the sister's arrogance and ineptitude for all their worth. This was a five star production!€ Her recital performance with famed mezzo Marietta Simpson and bass Kevin Maynor was praised by the Birmingham Times, €œVeronica'€™s agility and confidence in the upper register created some of the concert's most sublime passages. Her embellishments in 'Ride On King Jesus' were exquisite." Additional concert performances took her Muskegon, MI for performances with the West Shore Symphony, to Tennessee for the Memphis Symphony€™s televised Home for The Holidays€ concert and to Spoleto, Italy for the invitational Festival di Due Monde.

During 2006 Veronica performed Sandrina in La Finta Giardiniera with Elysium Concert Opera of Philadelphia and Fiordiligi (Cosi fan Tutte) with Delaware Valley Opera Company, and the title character in Little Red Riding Hood with Opera Birmingham. Michael Caruso of the Chestnut Hill Local called her a romantic and pearl voiced Fiordiligi. She also performed several musical theater selections with Bristol Riverside Theater for their Summer Musicale and then their holiday-themed Winter Musicale. Anita Donovan of The Trenton Times remarked, œVeronica'™s €powerful version of Summertime€™, €˜I Loves You Porgy€™, My Man€™s Gone Now€™, and (the duet) €˜Bess You Is My Woman Now€™ makes one long or a full-scale revival.€

2005 Veronica performed Edith in Pirates of Penzance with Gulf Atlantic Symphony of Florida, Violetta (student matinee performance) and Aninna (main stage production) for Center City Opera Theater€™s La Traviata. That summer she returned to Ash Lawn Opera Festival and appeared as Dolly Tate in Annie Get Your Gun. She was also chosen to be Gretel in Opera Birmingham’s educational tour of Hansel and Gretel. After leaving Birmingham she sang Donna Elvira with New York Opera Project, in which Debra Banerjee of the Scarsdale Inquire called her performance €œvery emotional€¦ very dramatic presence.€

Veronica spent most of 2004 away from her Philadelphia home performing with Opera Colorado as Gretel in Hansel and Gretel (outreach ensemble) and Berta (student matinee performance) in Il barbiere di Siviglia. She also performed the roles of Susanna (one performance) and Barbarina in Le nozze di Figaro with Opera Theater of The Rockies in Colorado Springs, and performed with the Colorado Symphony in their €œOpera on The Rocks€ concert at Red Rocks. That summer she was chosen as an apprentice at the Ash Lawn Opera Festival singing the Boylen Sister in Annie and Berta (cover) in The Barber of Seville.

In 2003 Veronica made her professional debut performing the title role in the Savoy Company€™s production of Princess Ida, and appeared with the Young Artist Program at Natchez Opera Festival performing the role of the Princess in Fair Means of Foul. That same year she also performed at Shaker Mountain Opera as Gianetta in L'€™elisir d'€™amore and Barbarina in Le nozze di Figaro.

She has also been a soprano soloist for the Charlotte Symphony, Choral Arts Society of Philadelphia, Mendelsshon Club of Philadelphia, Ursinus College, In Clara Voce, and Orquestra Sinfonica Municipal de Caracas to name a few. She is known for her very versatile vocal abilities. Some demonstrations of her flexibility include her appearance with the Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia as the voice of Joan of Arc (a part that previously was only sung by members of the well-known group Anonymous 4) in Richards Einhorn'€™s Voices of Light and her appearance as soloist in the Monteverdi Vespers 1610 with Choral Arts Society of Philadelphia.

Veronica’s upcoming engagements include First Lady in Opera Delaware's production of The Magic Flute, covering Pamina in the same production, and Soprano One in the solo quartet of Opera Company of Philadelphia's production of Manon Lescaut.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching piano/music reading and voice lessons of all ages since 2003. I really enjoy exploring the journey of learning about music with my students.

With voice lessons we learn the fundamentals of singer (breath, "placement", pitch accuracy, rhythm accuracy, and diction) Most students see a marked improvement in their singing ability in about 3-6 months. Singing is not always easy, but in a nurturing, safe environment I allow my students to realize their true potential.

In piano/music reading lessons I teach beginners. At these lessons you will learn basics of music reading music, rhythm exercises, and the basics of music theory. My attitude about playing piano is the same as singing, it may not be easy all the time but the time invested in learning will be worth the reward of being able to play an instrument!

Veronica is a really superb instructor in every way. Because of her skill as a teacher, her ability to diagnose problems and correct them my singing ability has grown beyond my expectations.Veronica is so knowledgeable, talented and gifted as a teacher and singer.

Galina S.

Huntingdon Valley, PA

I teach voice using the Bel Canto technique. This technique concentrates on breathing, proper placement and open space, making sure students produce a free and relaxed sound.

About Galina

Born in Moldova, lyric soprano Galina S. has emerged as a young artist of remarkable versatility and great vocal beauty.

“Galina possesses a most glorious soprano voice… her contributions to music have always been of the highest caliber, amply demonstrating her vocal and intellectual flexibility and accomplishment… she is a great singer and performer.” (John Shirley-Quirk, International baritone)

Ms. S’s impressive voice and sensitive musicianship has lead to performances in numerous cities in the United States as well as Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Israel, Moldova, and St. Petersburg, R
ussia. Her repertoire encompasses a vast gamut and includes lieder, chamber music, oratorio, and opera, sung in various languages, including German, French, Italian, Russian, Czech, English, and Spanish.

Galina will be next heard as Amelia in Un ballo in maschera with Concert Opera Philadelphia, in March 2013. She will also sing the title role in Suor Angelica with OperaOggi NY in 2012/2013 season. Her most recent roles include Donna Anna in Don Giovanni (New York Lyric Opera Theater), Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte, Nedda in I Pagliacci, Mimì and Musetta in La Bohème, and Lauretta in Gianni Schicchi. Some of the other roles are Violetta in La Traviata, Tatiana in Eugene Onegin, the title role in Iolanta, Marfa in Tsar’s Bride, Pamina in Die Zauberflöte, and Konstanze in Die Entführung aus dem Serail.

In oratorio Ms. S. has performed as a soprano soloist in the Lord Nelson Mass and Theresa Mass of Haydn, Handel’s Messiah, J. S. Bach’s Magnificat, and the Neue Liebeslieder, Opus 65 by Brahms. Her recital and chamber repertoire include songs and song cycles by Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Mussorgsky, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Dvořak, Manuel de Falla, Poulenc, and Messiaen.

Ms. S. has been the recipient of several awards and scholarships which include Washington International Competition in Washington DC, Center for Contemporary Opera Competition in New York, Giulio Gari Foundation International Vocal Competition in New York, New York Vocal Artists Competition, Peabody Conservatory Graduate Performance Diploma Scholarship and grant, and Mayor’s Scholarship from the University of Pennsylvania where Galina received her undergraduate degrees in music and computer science engineering. Galina has also been chosen to participate in the International Music Competition of the ARD in Munich.

Galina is a graduate of Peabody Conservatory of Music where she received a Master’s Degree in Vocal Performance, and University of Pennsylvania, which she finished with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music and Computer Science Engineering.

Ms. S. is a dedicated and enthusiastic voice teacher, who has been teaching for the past ten years. Many of her students have become soloists in their schools’ musical productions, and several went on to continue their studies at major conservatories. She has taught at Cabrini College, Settlement Music School, and is presently teaching at Leopold Mozart Academy. She also offers lessons out of her private studio at her home.

*** Lesson Details ***
My style of teaching is very straight forward. Students will first learn a proper breathing technique which is essential to good vocal production. The lessons always start with simple vocalizations, followed by repertoire appropriate to each student. The development and progress will greatly depend on students initial level and the time they spend practicing at home.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Steinway Grand Piano, Music Stand, Vocal Literature. Large room with hardwood floors, which provides wonderful acoustics for singing.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The student must have a piano or keyboard. I will bring music books.

*** Specialties ***
I have the most experience teaching classical voice - bel canto style of singing which concentrates on proper breathing technique and production of healthy unstressed sound.

Great vocal lesson experience!

Although my association with Galina was brief, the information gleaned was infinite. She really made me feel comfortable, tailored the lessons for maximum result, and quickly identified my bad habits while guiding me on how to avoid them going forward. To be a good teacher, you have to be a master yourself in that field... I can tell you Galina has a beautiful voice in her own right which really helps her lead by example. In closing, I would strongly recommend her services to anyone interested regardless of level of experience.

Ryan H.

Haddon Heights, NJ

About Ryan

I began singing when I was seven in a school choir. After that, I joined a boy choir in Florida that allowed me to travel all over the United States and Europe, exposing me to many different genres of music. When I entered college, I decided to start training as an opera singer. Since then, I have gained a Bachelor of Arts in Music with a Minor in Theater Arts from the University of Miami (FL) and a Master of Music in Vocal Performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music. I have been fortunate to perform extensively and have become passionate about performing. Having recently graduated
from the Cleveland Institute of Music, I am dedicated to building a studio in the Haddon Heights area.

*** Lesson Details ***
Learning to sing should be fun and exciting! It's a personal talent that I love and enjoy and am excited to share that with my students. I teach a classical technique focusing on breath, posture and a natural, healthy sound. From this technique, anyone can sing any genre of music healthily and for a long time. If you want to audition for some big part/company or if you just want to beat your friends in a karaoke competition I'll be happy to help! Piano students will be using technique books, and once a grasp of the fundamentals has been gained, the next step is to work on some basic repertoire of your choice. Learning technique is essential but of no use unless it's applied to music. 

*** Studio Equipment ***
Private studio in a comfortable common area with great acoustics in my home. A keyboard, music, internet access and street parking are all available. I recommend recording lessons but it is not required.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a keyboard and some music. If you want to record your lessons I encourage it.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical singing technique which is the basis for any genre of singing, basic piano technique and classical music theory.

I have a Bachelor's and Master's degree from Florida State University in Voice Performance and I studied for my Doctorate in Musical Arts in Vocal Pedagogy from The University of Miami. My education has provided me a great understanding of how the voice functions correctly and how to relate this to any level of student, from completely inexperienced singers to advanced singers. My teaching style focuses on making sure that the different p
arts of the voice are working correctly then focusing on the coordination of the entire system working together. Whether you are preparing for an important singing engagement or just trying to improve your skills, I would love to help you achieve your goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every voice lesson will consist of equal time instruction through vocal exercises and instruction through song. I have a very laid-back and fun approach to singing and teaching. I feel that the studio should be an enjoyable place and the voice lesson should be a time of the week to which the student looks forward. During the first lesson the student and I will set achievable goals in achievable time spans specific to the level and skill of the singer. I will give the student all the tools to achieve their goals, including weekly skill and muscle training exercises tailored to the student's needs.

Jeffrey rocks! I'm 59 and after a lifetime of not properly singing, I'm finally learning how to correctly sing and protect my instrument. It has been about three months and I've improved exponentially. Jeffrey accepts you at whatever level you are at and brings you along from there. He is knowledgable, patient, and always positive!

Excellent teacher! I couldn't be more elated with my decision in choosing Jeffrey for my singing instructor. Not only does he possess highly impressive credentials but he has an amazing way of combining his highly trained teaching ability with his wonderful ability to make you feel comfortable, confidant and at ease. Each week I am amazed at his teaching technique, his engaging personality and his obvious eagerness in helping you achieve your goals. Have had a couple of vocal coaches in the past however Jeffrey is by far the most outstanding teacher I've had and feel privileged to have found him. Thank you, Jeffrey!

Aaron K.

Haddon Heights, NJ

I began studying opera in college when I was 18. I have been studying it ever since and am pursuing it myself. I can help students with good technique and to understand what the field entails should the student wish to pursue it. Otherwise I can help students gain an understanding and hopefully an appreciation of it.

About Aaron

I have a bachelor's degree in music from University of Miami with a minor in acting and have just finished my Master's degree in vocal performance from Texas Tech University. At Texas Tech I held my own private studio for two years. During that time I taught students of all levels in various styles ranging from classical to music theater, to rock and pop. I have helped students of advanced levels and also students who thought that they were tone deaf. I enjoy working with and getting to know all of my students. Teaching really is a great pleasure for me.
