Elise J.

New York, NY

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 venue
s 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 meeting you and getting started!

*** Lesson Details ***
Whatever your goals may be, I am here to help you reach them and have a great time along the way! I believe that with a solid and healthy vocal technique, the sky is the limit! My lessons are highly individualized. At our first meeting, we will discuss what you would like to accomplish in the coming months. Maybe you want to land the lead in your school musical, maybe you want to get accepted into your dream conservatory, or maybe you simply want to learn more about the art of singing!

With a strong background in opera, I will spend a lot of time teaching the importance of breath support and proper placement of the voice. Together, we will choose appropriate repertoire that will help you grow as a singer, and that you love! There is such a wealth of vocal music in this world, there is no reason to sing any piece that you don't absolutely love!

I am also available to teach basic sight singing and music theory, and for audition consultation.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upright piano in living room

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching classical voice, as my primary training is in opera. I have spent two summers studying the Bel Canto method in Italy and use this as I teach.

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!!!!

Barbee M.

North Bergen, NJ

About Barbee

NOW OFFERING LESSONS IN BERGEN COUNTY!

Welcome to my teacher profile! My name is Barbee and I am an active professional classical singer with over eight years of piano and voice teaching experience. I enjoy teaching both children and adults. Check out my specialities and see if you think we'd be a good fit! Then, feel free to click "Ask Barbee a Question" if you'd like more information from me!

Both voice and piano lessons are based on a foundation of healthy technique while incorporating musicianship skills and encouraging the student to develop their own creativity. While my focus as a
performer is opera and other classical music, I am experienced in teaching Broadway/musical theater, pop, rock, R&B, folk, and other styles and genres. I encourage my students to explore new styles and apply good technique to any style they may choose to sing or play.

I also specialize in helping prepare singers for auditions for college, performing arts schools, choirs, musicals, and competitions. As an active performer myself I have auditioned many, MANY times for different organizations. I have also been on "the other side of the table" and I know what qualities audition panels are looking for. Several of my current and former students have been accepted to college music programs, performing arts magnet schools, audition-only choirs, and theater programs to continue their studies. Let me help you show your best qualities at your audition!

As a member of both NATS (National Association for Teachers of Singing) and ACDA (American Choral Directors Association) I am constantly working to improve my teaching skills by keeping up with the latest pedagogical research. I love sharing new tips and techniques with my students!

I strive to create a lesson environment that is open and honest, where my students are never afraid to ask questions or try something new. I am always happy to explain concepts in a different way and I encourage improvisation and creativity in addition to healthy technique and strong musicianship.

I teach from a church in Bergen County, NJ; I am also available for in-home lessons in Hudson County, NJ, and Manhattan, NY.

Studio details:
Small chapel space
Grand piano, music stands
Waiting area for parents/siblings
Limited lot parking, plenty of street parking
Accessible by NJ Transit bus from New York (Port Authority Bus Terminal) and nearby areas of New Jersey

In-home lesson equipment requirements:
Voice: Piano (preferred) or keyboard; music stand(s); full-length mirror (preferred).
Piano: Piano (preferred) or keyboard; desk or table nearby for written assignments and assessments.
Music theory: Piano (preferred) or keyboard; music stand(s) (preferred); desk or table nearby for written assignments and assessments.
Note: Students are expected to purchase all music, curriculum, and other materials as appropriate. In many cases I can obtain the necessary materials prior to the first lesson and the student/parent can reimburse me at the lesson.

Barbee made my daughter feel at ease and free to express herself. Even though it was only the first lesson, Barbee already gave her so many pointers and bits of helpful criticism. She is pleasant and professional, and my daughter is looking forward to more sessions.

So far with Barbee has been a fantastic experience, she is a really talented and patient teacher and performer, she is humorous which is good, you don't want a teacher that is serious all the time, although she can get serious when needed.
A really good person to work with, in general great! I truly love her teaching and her dedication to students.

Excellent!

Two months of lessons have proven very productive. I have seen great improvement in my daugher's abilities and confidence. Barbee is mild in her ways yet tenacious; always pushing to the next level. I like that I am able to sit through the lesson. The classes run on schedule. Barbee is responsive to calls/texts and is flexible with schedule changes.

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.

Less
ons 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 concentration and application! I understand and can work with many schedules and work loads, but I expect my students to put at least half the effort into their lessons that I do!

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. ^_^

My review is basically the same as the one below - my son is a little slow at guitar and Nelson is SO patient with him. You can tell he loves music and he really enjoys the teaching process. What a great find.

I have taken 8 lessons with Nelson and I'm very happy with him as my teacher. He is an accomplished guitarist, but more importantly, as a teacher he's very patient and allows me to learn at my own pace (which is slow). I would recommend him to anyone wishing to learn to play the guitar.

Gio A.

New York, NY

About Gio

I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums.

I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrume
nt takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put some time into practicing, then I will help them go far!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have several guitars, a drum kit, djembe, mandolin, clarinet and full-size keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar: Classical, jazz, American or Irish folk, rock and pop; lead or rhythm.
Drums & Percussion: All genres
Piano: Classical (includes sight reading)
