I've had experience working with both beginners looking to sing for enjoyment as well as coaching aspiring professionals to refine their craft and move ahead with career goals! I tailor lessons according to your goals while also helping you discover and fulfill your maximum potential. I establish and maintain a calm, safe space for us to explore your voice without pressure or judgment, and encourage your insights and creativity.

I also emphasize the importance of overall musicianship for singers so that they have deeper understanding and appreciation for their musical selection. This can include learning to sight sing, transposing songs to your correct key, accurately communicating preferred tempo and rhythmic feel to other musicians, writing charts in order to work with live bands and so on.

Rachel has taught our son since first grade; he's now in third. She's tailored lessons to his musical taste (the Beatles) while providing a strong foundation on which to build. She's been very flexible and accommodating throughout the switch from in-person to remote lessons, and he really enjoys the time with her. Knowing that so many kids are motivated by short-term goals, she's planned even more recitals during this remote time than when they were solely in-person, and that's been a great motivator for our son to practice.

DO NOT BOOK WITH RACHEL PANAY RAZIEL
It is with deep regret that I have to report that Rachel was clearly INTOXICATED during her lessons with my children today (ages 14 & 11). We will not be using Take Lessons again. There is no way an app can sufficiently vet all these teachers. Please don’t put your children in danger and learn this lesson the hard way like we didi.

Rachel is a great teacher for my 12 year old child. Rachel builds her confidence and meets her exactly where she is at. I highly recommend her.

Hi, I'm Zak! I'm guessing you're here because you love singing. Well, so do I!

Small world.

I've played piano on Broadway for Wicked, Mean Girls, Motown, and The Color Purple, and have vocally coached multiple Broadway actors. What makes singing lessons with me unique is that I am also a vocal coach. I focus not only on healthy technique and exciting repertoire; I also focus on Acting While Singing. This is a skill that often falls by the wayside - we act until the song starts, then just stand there singing. I've heard many top directors say they'd rather cast an actor who sings than a singer who acts (meaning, they prefer acting talent to singing talent). Acting While Singing is what takes a performance to the next level. Like Lin-Manuel Miranda in Hamilton and In The Heights, and Ben Platt in Dear Evan Hansen, truly transformative performances come about because the actor is so fused with the character that we can't tell who is who.

Please reach out if you're curious to learn ...

Private Singing Teacher

I've been teaching chorus and doing private voice lessons for almost 10 years. For the past years, my students in private singing lessons have gained a basic understanding of vocal anatomy and become more skilled in correct breathing technique, moving between vocal registers and producing balanced tone. I usually select an age appropriate song for my students to learn for each session, and each skill the students learned during the lessons will be applied to the singing of that song.

"My daughter has been with Ms. Kelly since September 2014 and in that time friends and family have noticed her singing is stronger, she has better range, and she's able to hold notes longer. My daughter has 30 min sessions but within that time, she's learned alot and has better control over her voice. The location is convenient for us. Ms. Kelly is absolutely wonderful with children and adults. A joy and blessing to work with. I look forward to working with her in the future."

"In addition to being a fantastic performer himself, Ashot is a brilliant person to converse on any subject and has been a mentor for me and my vocal trio for many years now. Our repertoire grew immensely and has been very versatile because of Ashot's vast knowledge of Jazz, pop, classical, rock and therefore, the rest of genres that are a combination of the above styles. His passion for music and calm character has almost healing powers, which he so gracefully combines with the type of demands/assignments that one always completes with pleasure! My love and development in singing, piano playing, compositions for my performances or film scores have been influenced and encouraged by Ashot from a really young age and for many years now! Anyone who has the chance to sing or play even one piece with or in front of Ashot B., is a lucky rascal!"

50+ Best Acapella Songs for Girls, Guys, Groups & More | TakeLessons

Every singer should have a few traditional and contemporary acapella songs under their belt. Many times, singers are required to sing acapella at auditions - without an accompanist or background track. Music directors often ask singers to sing acapella in order to hear and test their musicality and stamina. (Acapella singing requires that these skills be sharp!) It also shows that you’re able to be a leader, and that you're comfortable having the spotlight on you as a solo singer. I …

Practice Tips: Vocal Warm-Ups & Technique

Structuring your vocal warm-ups and practice between lessons can make a huge impact on your success. Here, Bloomfield, NJ teacher Zachary B. shares some helpful tips... In my experience, many students make progress during a lesson and often return to the next lesson with the new skills forgotten. Merely practicing songs, without specific structure usually leads to singing the song repeatedly. While this does familiarize you with the song, it does not help you improve from a technical st …
