Great Piano Teacher!

I've had a few lessons with Randy, and I'm very pleased with my progress! He is extremely knowledgeable and does everything possible to make a student feel comfortable. With Randy, learning the piano is exciting and fun! I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a teacher that will work with you to be the best musician you can be.

Randy is a great songwriting coach!

I have the highest recommendation for Randy as a songwriting teacher and coach. I walked into his studio less than a year ago, having recently started writing my own songs. With remarkable patience and understanding, he picked out the parts of my work that were working well (he always points these out), and he led me, step by step, through a process of learning how to improve both my lyrics and my music composition. He has an excellent approach of knowing where I am as a student, and exposing me to just the right amount of new information to take me to the next step. Randy is organized, has a good mix of theory and practice, and his teaching style matches my learning style very well. Through many systematic steps, I feel I have become a much better songwriter in the last 9 months or so. He is always encouraging, and added to my motivation for creating an album of my own work. Randy is now coaching me through the creation of this first album — a cumulative process that I’m enjoying thoroughly. Again, I wholeheartedly recommend Randy as a guide for your songwriting journey.

Excellent teacher with varied backgrounds!

Randy has been a wonderful teacher! I have worked with him for many years as a musical theater coach and now am venturing into improving my piano skills. He is so knowledgable about theory, music history and just playing his instrument that I always feel wholly enriched after my sessions with him! He really helps you to understand the how and the why that when you get into the piece itself, it all comes together and makes sense! He also is a strong advocate of finding an artists' authentic voice. This is wonderful because when you learn to play the instrument, he helps you to reveal your own signature! You are not just playing songs anymore. You are making music.

Fred is a top notch teacher

I took voice lessons with Fred for about 2 years when I was 11 years old. I remember always looking forward to my lessons with him. He was not only a great voice teacher, but such a kind soul. He always knew what I needed on any given day, and would tailor my lessons for that. Lessons with him were always a highlight of my week. Aside from his kindness and relaxed energy, he has a unique creativity in teaching voice. He is extremely keyed in to each individual's vocal quality and tailors his exercises for them. I would highly recommend taking lessons with Fred.

Deep understanding of singing

I took lessons with Fred Rice for one year, and it was perfect for a beginning vocalist. I could tell that Fred understood every aspect of what he taught me, and communicated those ideas in an accessible fashion. I highly recommend Fred for vocalists at any level; I personally guarantee that you will learn from him and get more than your money's worth.

Working with Fred was truly rewarding.

I was a student of Fred's for a year and I found it to be a truly wonderful, positive experience.
Fred learned what was important for me as a singer and focused on my voice as an individual.
More importantly, working with Fred was a joy. We had fun and I never stopped learning.

A great experience!

I highly recommend Marni for voice lessons. She is an extremely talented teacher in both the mechanics and creative aspects of singing. Often, she explains concepts to me in a visual manner because it is familiar to me (I have experience in visual art). I'm amazed at how much I've improved my vocal range/quality in a short time, and how much more comfortable I feel when I sing (both physical comfort and improved confidence). Marni is a gifted artist who will help you find your unique singing voice.

Gina is a wonderful friend, but more importantly, a singer with a strong understanding of the principles behind healthy vocal production. Having known here for years and performed with her, I can attest to her enthusiasm, strong knowledge of the vocal arts and willingness to go the extra mile! If you're looking for a partner in crime for vocal study, Gina is most certainly worth a try!

Studying with Shellen Lubin is a holistic experience and definitely not just about the voice. Each lesson was a life lesson for me and even though I have not had a face-to-face lesson for several years now, I continue to learn from Shellen. My experience is that she is the gift that keeps on giving. Shellen provided me with the necessary tools to improve vocally in music, in speaking and in presentation and as I have continued to practice with those tools, I find my voice getting stronger and more flexible than when I was studying with her in person. Additionally, I find I am becoming more of the person/performer she was endeavoring to expose in our sessions.

I would encourage anyone who is willing to be open and receptive to indeed study with Shellen. You will find there is more in you to bring to the stage (and the world) than you ever thought possible, and you will receive “food” that will nourish and enrich your life for years to come.

Shellen Lubin is the strongest vocal teacher it has ever been my pleasure to work with. Her years of successful teaching and volume of satisfied students are a testament to her abilities and professionalism. She is wonderful at diagnosing vocal issues and then consistently supportively working through them, without a hint of judgment or impatience. I would highly recommend her to anyone at any stage of training who is seeking to improve their technique in a friendly safe environment. She is also a terrific coach, directing character, text, subtext, and story in song so well. When I have taken her workshops, I have been so impressed how well all her students present their material, professionals, aspiring professionals, and non-professionals.

After only two lessons with Shellen Lubin, I have realized the benefits of professional vocal training. She provides practical exercises that can be done any where at any time; in addition, she is extremely supportive and prepares meticulous individualized exercises to do between lessons.

I highly recommend Shellen to anyone who’s been singing professionally and also to those fearful vocalists (like me) out there who want to overcome that obstacle. Shellen’s knowledgeable, supportive, super-warm style puts you at ease and gives you the confidence to sing with joy!

Thank you, Shellen, for all your help!
