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 to 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 toolkit 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.

Elliott is a magnificent teacher! I have been taking lessons from him for about a year now, and I don't believe I have ever made as much progress with any other teacher than I have with Elliott. Not only is he an incredibly skilled teacher but I feel he has a genuine interest in helping me succeed in reaching my goals as a singer. Perhaps his greatest asset as an instructor is in his approach. His teaching methods have been tailored to fit the skill level that I am at and are specific to the goals I wish to accomplish. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to advance their skills as a singer, whether it be for writing and performing your own songs to preparing for a broadway musical.

I have just completed my first five lessons with Mr. Archer and I must say that I made the best choice when I chose him as my vocal coach. I have no formal vocal training and Mr. Archer was able to work with me at my level. His lessons are productive, and with patience and encouragement I am begin to truly enjoy the experience.

I would highly recommend him as a vocal coach. He is a great person to work with.

I have been working with Elliot for the past five weeks, and just renewed my membership with takelessons to continue working with Elliot. He is a wonderful, energetic teacher, who takes the time to work with his students: with regard to where they are vocally. Moreover, has been very instrumental in helping me find the correct vocal placement, with emphasis on support: while using my entire body. This has been a wonderful experience thus far!!

Asuka U.

New York, NY

My students can increase the breathing capacity and vocal range. We will work on improving the quality of sound and proper vowel placement.

About Asuka

I started my musical training as a pianist at YAMAHA institute at age 4 in Japan. I was selected to enter perfect pitch class. It was designated for students who have perfect pitch and potentials to be professional musicians.

I enjoyed playing piano and electric piano and won the 1st prize at Kitakantou Electric Piano Competition hosted by YAMAHA institute. Because of the intensive training, I have been accompanying my students' recitals and performance exams.

As much as I enjoyed playing piano, I discovered that I also love singing, so I started to take singing lessons and majored in vo
cal performance during my college days.

Since I have graduated, I have been performing opera professionally. My career highlights include roles as Dorinda(Cantanti project), Pamina (Die Zauberflote) with Opera Manhattan Studio, Frasquita (Carmen) with One World Symphony, Zerlina (Don Giovanni) and Clorinda (La Cenerentola) with Capitol Heights Opera, Alice (Le comte Ory) with West Side Opera Society, Adele (Die Fledermaus), Susanna (Le Nozze di Figaro), and Myrrhine (Lysistrata) with Opera Avanti, Gilda (Rigoletto) with Academie Internationale d'Ete de Nice, and The First Spirit (Die Zauberflote) with the Opera Company of Brooklyn.

My international credits include studies at the Academy Internationale d'Ete de Nice, France; the Daniel Ferro Vocal Program in Chianti, Italy; the International Vocal Arts Institute in Tel Aviv, Israel; and an appearance at the Young Artist's Concert in Tokyo, Japan.

As a versatile singer, I was presented as an aspiring opera singer on the website of Maybelline New York. My voice was featured in short films for NEC, the Japanese technology company.

I was also selected as a finalist at the Opera Idol Competition at Lincoln Center, the Hariclea Darclee Voice Competition in Romania, and the Mario Lanza and Elaine Malbin Vocal Competition. In the summer 2014, I received a scholarship to perform at The Savannah Voice Festival that is founded by Metropolitan Opera/Grammy Award Winner Opera Star Mr. Sherrill Miles. My upcoming engagement includes singing the title role of Madame Butterfly with Snob Opera in Montreal and Quebec that is supported by Quebec City.

Besides being an opera singer, I have been teaching piano and voice for 11 years. I have been fortunate to study with the world renowned teachers. I continue my vocal studies with Mr.Gerald Martin Moore who teaches Tony award winner Kelly O'Hara, Met star Renee Flemimg and Mr. William Hicks who was a coach for Luciano Pavarotti at The Metroplitan Opera. I would like to share my skills and experience with you. Since I perform often, I can coach you how to perform on stage in addition to building solid technique and languages. Also, I have taught various kinds of music, such as Rock, Broadway musicals, Pop music, so we can work on all kind of music.

I look forward to teaching you soon!

*** Lesson Details ***
My students can expect to improve their skills and start to enjoy music more as we work together.
I believe that learning music is fun and enjoyable. However you also need to be serious and focused.
I can demonstrate various and specific techniques, phrasing, and interpretation and will always coach on how to develop your skills. However, I feel it is important for students to think critically on their own and take the first try at solving a problem themselves. I cannot emphasize enough that primarily it is you who find the ways to improve. Leaning music is a collaboration between teachers and students. I hope that through my lessons, students will become more self-sufficient and confident as musicians.
Let me help you become a better musician.

It's my first time taking voice lessons in NYC and Asuka is just great. It's only been two lessons and I'm singing much louder than I ever imagined. She helps you to reach your limits and then go beyond that. She can always precisely point out the things you should work on and if you do as she says you'll sound like a new person. Also, classes are fun and efficient and she makes you feel so comfortable too.

Asuka has been teaching my son to play the piano for a few weeks. He is now able to recognize pitch by ear. I was very pleased that she was able to develop his ear while he is learning to read and play. Since then my daughter has also been taking singing lessons with Asuka. She is very excited to perform in a recital. Both of my kids love her and they have a lot of fun during the lesson. We are very happy to have a teacher with such a beautiful voice.

I teach my students how to extend their range, increase breath control and the freedom of their body in order to enable a free and easy produced vocal tone. I teach song repertoire to the student's particular musical style choices. I also work with students that wish to write their own songs so that their musical ideas can be heard clearly and precisely. A guitar is available for students if they wish to use it to accompany themselves. I teach my students how to deal with performance anxiety . Students are presented in recitals twice a year and performance classes are held once a month in addition to the private lessons.

Deborah C.

New York, NY

Hi future students!!!

We all know to be an opera singer is hard work and very difficult. However, it is not impossible. Technique is key and I am here to help you build technique in order for you to reach your goal. Also, we will have fun learning and singing because learning is fun! We will study breath support, and breath control, as well mouth positions, forward sound, the larynx and how to keep and open throat. I will also teach you and help you strengthen your registers as well as blend them.

About Deborah

I have so many different things I teach. If you are looking for a voice teacher, I definitely can be of help. I have been singing all of my life. I sing in many different genres like pop, gospel, R&B, and classical. I can even help if you want to be an opera singer, as I am studying to be one myself at the Aaron Copland of Music. First things we would start to do is learn how to breathe. After the student understands good breath, then we will apply it to actual singing.

I also teach Italian, and have taught the language for 3 years in a private school. I lived in Italy for a while and I jus
t love the language. If anyone needs a tutor, I can help!

I also teach art history, and art as far as drawing and painting. So if any parent wants for their child learn how to express themselves through painting or drawing, I can do that as well!!

I love to do all of these things, as I have a great passion for them! I hope I can inspire someone else.

Ms. Deborah is the best!! I've only had three lessons so far but within that short time I've learned so much. This is my first time taking lessons and I was very nervous in the beginning but Ms. Deborah's warm and friendly personality combined with her positive outlook put me at ease. She is helping me build my confidence and teaching me how to improve my vocal range. Even when I feel like I can't do it she pushes me and I achieve what I thought I couldn't do. I'm happy that I found Ms. Deborah.
