About Elise

Hello! Thank you for stumbling across my profile. I offer voice lessons in multiple genres to students of all ages! In addition to teaching privately, I have worked on developing curriculum for and teaching an after school music and theater class for under-served high school students in the Bronx. As an experienced nanny, I am very comfortable with and love working with young children! As a soprano trained at the Manhattan School of Music and McGill University, I have had the great pleasure of working with leading teachers and directors in the opera world. I have performed in various venues on the east coast including NYC's Lincoln Center, and the Brevard Music Center in North Carolina. Throughout my performance career, teaching has always brought me great joy! I look forward to ...

She is a joy to work with

I started taking voice lessons with Elise in August 2013 and she has just been an absolute joy to work with! I learned so much from her and she is friendly, positive and encouraging me when I was worried about one thing or another! I will continue to work with her for as long as I need to. She's great!

Builds my 6-year-old's confidence and celebrates her imagination

On a whim, I signed my daughter up for private acting lessons with Elise. I had and still have no intention of turning my child into an actor--no performance goals at all. I just wanted to give Sophie an outlet to express her imaginative self and to show her that creativity and storytelling bring life-long joy.

Elise is as pleasant as her picture. She has a natural warmth and 'speaks kid.' She is highly receptive to ideas and we are able to reinforce what Sophie is learning in school, like identifying the beginning, middle, and end of stories.

I highly recommend Elise for anyone who wants to give their child a unique, confidence-building experience.

Elise is so supportive and positive! She puts you at ease!

I am new to take lessons, and one main reason I wanted to start was to get my courage to sing in front of others and find out professional feedback if I had any talent. Elise was so warm, and positive. She gave me honest feedback. She is so bubbly and kind and really knows what she is talking about! She's honest with her comments. She also gave me great breathing tips and helped me warm up with singing techniques that really helped me!! She put things in terms I could understand. She was also very understanding when I had to reschedule an appointment and was running late. I am grateful to God for her help with my singing and I hope to capitalize on what she has told me so I can achieve my singing dream. She is wonderful! I highly recommend her, you won't regret it!!!!

Allison P.

New York, NY

About Allison

Hi! My name is Allison and I'm an opera singer. I fell madly in love with music and singing as a young child and was bitten by the opera bug at age 15. Ever since seeing that first opera, I've never looked back. I did lead roles in my high school musicals, then got my Bachelor of Music and my Master of Music degrees in Classical Voice and Opera Performance both from competitive conservatories. Ever since graduation, I've been lucky enough to make my work as a professional singer. I've traveled all over the country and even internationally bringing this amazing art form to audiences. Now I feel like my dream has come true because I get to do what I love: sing! Pavarotti said, "I think a life in music is a life beautifully spent and this is what I have devoted my life to." I feel ...

Allison was able to identify my natural vocal range in the first lesson. Never thought that I would be comfortable singing in the soprano range, but she has given me week by week goals to build vocal technique and help me see my progress. She has an outgoing and enthusiastic personality! Lessons are a pleasure.

Laura K.

New York, NY

About Laura

Music is definitely the universal language, and there isn't a genre I don't love; it's important to me that that aspect be brought to lessons, as well! From humble New Jersey beginnings to an opera career, I've seen the power of what music can do! Whether it's opera, musical theater, folk, rock, or just public speaking, anything YOU love to do, I would love to teach you! Having taught all ages and levels, from first graders to adults, from someone who's never sung a note in his or her life to semi-professionals, I cater my lessons to what YOU as a student need and are interested in. Lessons shouldn't be a chore - I like to foster an environment you look forward to being a part of! I also think that music, like any sport, is hard work, and takes seriously practice; even hobbies take ...

Awesome teacher! patient, knowledgeable, & creative

I'm a complete beginner, could barely sing in tune. I decided to take lessons for fun. but whoa was i surprised at the progress I've made with Laura in just a few short months. She has catered to my individual needs, and has made my learning experience fun. She works at my pace so i never feel rushed or bored. She teaches singing lessons in a way anyone can understand. Her background in opera means she can sing and teach her students amazing vocal range. She taught me anything is possible with hard work and dedication! I've learned so much with her, it's hard to put it all in a short review. Pick her and you won't be disappointed! Thank you Laura!

Great teacher

Laura is a really good and nice teacher. She is patient to answer all of my questions.I improved a lot in a short period of time with her tips on singing. She's not only just teach you how to sing, she also talks some histories of music and different examples or even her experiences to me. She can make an exercise into a fun way to do. I learned a lot from her and I gain more confident on singing. I'm always looking forward to take lessons with her. She's such a great singer and vocal coach!! Laura is a great choice for those of you who want to learn singing in a comfortable, no pressure and fun environment. ^_^

Natalie L. was wonderful to work with. She really helped me with sight reading and tempo (which I sorely needed). She also helped me build my audition repertoire and play with my voice to find new ways of singing. I highly recommend Natalie! She also plays the piano very well, which helps when you're learning new material.

During high school I continued my studies with Jack Chaikin , a graduate of the Juilliard School. I attended Hofstra University where I received a B.A. in Music in 1979.

I also took a few lessons from Adam Aleksander, concert pianist, in Miami. So all together, I took lessons for 20 years with six different teachers! I started teaching piano when I was 18 years old and taught all throughout college. After enjoying a successful career in data processing for 22 years, I ...
