About Danielle

I have been taking the world by surprise since the age of 4. I began studying at Queens College at 6 years old and was a recital pianist by the age of 12. I was a consumer of music, from the Music Theory lessons on Saturdays, piano lessons on Thursdays and voice lessons on Saturday afternoons, my life was filled with music.

It is to no one's surprise that I completed my first demo at the age of 13 and was performing for Queens Colleges audiences at 14. I went on the rank high in the NYSSMA series in both piano and voice. I also went on to study music in college and began touring with gospe
l troupes nationally. Since then I has done many workshops, Master Classes, tour dates, theatre shows etc. Too many to date. I am a sought after teacher for voice, piano and broadway singing. I train public speakers, actors and teachers as well.

April S.

Bronx, NY

I'm a 'classically trained' voice teacher with extensive training in dance and drama;
a liberal arts degree from Columbia University/Master of Arts Education from City College of NY.
Before settling into a music career, worked as a dance instructor, for the City of NY and received congrats from John Lindsey, then mayor, for outstanding achievement.
As an actor, performed in several off-Broadway plays and was a principal in the “Broadway tour”, ”Pulitzer prize ” winning play, “No Place to be Somebody.” I've performed through the years as a vocalist with a trio and as a ONE WOMAN SHOW at various night spots, concert halls and social events. As a voice coach I've had the good fortune to teach the skills and techniques of the art of singing.
Singing is the joy I share as a performer and as a teacher. Anyone can learn to sing; and do it on a superior level. It takes desire and the willingness to practice the skills necessary until the goal is achieved.
The journey is worth it!

*** Lesson Details ***
WORKSHOP FOR LEARNING TO SING
COMPETENCY: A SOLID FOUNDATION IN THE BASICS OF SINGING
OBJECTIVE: Students will learn 5 Basic Components of Singing and demonstrate via public (by choice) performance; at the end of course.
1. Pitch
2. Rhythm
3. Breath
4. Voice
5. Diction
Pitch
Tone is the use of pitch in language to distinguish words. All languages use intonation to express emphasis, contrast, emotion, or other such nuances.
Pitch refers to the notes and sounds that we hear when someone sings, and it determines if the song is going to sound great or not. The singer will have to hit various pitches in a song with a relative amount of accuracy in order to be in tune with the overall music accompaniment and harmonies.
RHYTHM
Every song has a certain beat, and it is essential that we keep to the basic rhythm of the song, or else we might find that we are constantly trying to catch up with the lyrics or always lagging behind. Rhythm also determines the groove of the song, and this is what gets us on our feet and dancing when we listen to upbeat or fast tempo songs.
A great sense of rhythm begins with learning to recognize various beat duration, to vocalize notes with different beats, as well as to be able to keep to the basic tempo of a song.
BREATH CONTROL
Breathing is an essential component of singing, and is what most singing instructors would introduce to students during their first lesson for singing. It is also what most people would want to learn about and also ask questions about.
Breathing is a natural process, and it is not difficult to achieve better breath control for singing. A great breath foundation is needed for singing!
VOICE
To produce great sounds when singing it is essential to adopt beneficial singing habits in order to produce sounds that are more relaxed and healthy.
DICTION
Learning how to produce sound with our voice is not enough. We still need to shape our voice, and form words in a language that our audience will understand.
This is why diction is also one of the vital basics of singing, because it determines whether our audience understands what we are singing, and whether we are able to connect with them through our song. Diction is also a key factor towards hitting the correct pitches, especially for the high notes, and this will be explained in detail.

COURSE OUTLINE:
Lesson 1 PITCH
How to avoid the most common singing mistakes that prevent singers from producing a clean and professional vocal tone.
Objective: Students will learn warm up exercises that strengthen vocal cords and loosen the muscles needed to produce a professional sound./ the importance of singing ‘scales’ to achieve this objective.
Lesson 2 RHYTHM
Rhythms often used in various standard songs.
Objective: Students will listen and learn to identify rhythms used in songs. CD player provided.
Students will learn to tap out the various types of rhythm.
Students will sing a favorite song; using rhythms learned in class.
Lesson 3 BREATH
For the purpose of voice projection, students will learn to breath more from the diaphragm, the muscles beneath the ribcage, as well as the abdominal muscles.
Objective: Students will learn vital techniques to create a connected voice blending head, chest and diaphragm.
Lesson 5 DICTION
How to use the emotions, enunciation and clarity.
Objective: Students will learn to sing a favorite song with focus on elements of singing.
Lesson 6 Review of previous 5 lessons.
Lesson 7 Group/Individual Performances
Objective: Students will show confidence in employing elements from training.
Lessons 8/9/10 Rehearsal for recital TBA

I just completed my 3rd lesson with April and is impressed with her dedication to ensure I achieve my goal. She takes time to breakdown the lessons and how each will help me in its own way. She loves what she does which is a consolation to anyone wanting to improve their vocal ability. I have started to become area of how I breathe and ways in which I can improve. I would recommend her highly to anyone wanting to take singing to the next level.

Foteini M.

Flushing, NY

Whether you are interested to sing in a belt, mix, head, chest voice or all of the above, I can help you! By using well-thought scaffolding methods, based on research, experience, and clinical training my students are given the opportunity to project their voice in a healthy manner and with an extensive vocal range up to five octaves. I train students and professionals for all types of auditions and performances.

About Foteini

Personal Statement

I believe that progressive teaching must employ constructive pedagogical strategies to foster meaningful musical experiences for students to build and to exhibit competence. My pedagogical model is comprised of a student-centered approach to produce attainable challenges and to affect affirmative changes that will physically, technically, and emotionally enrich each student's performance.

During instruction, I exercise scaffolding methods to facilitate the students' zone of proximal development and innovative questioning to augment students' cognitive thinking and cri
tical thinking skills. The process of musical learning is purposeful when it is facilitated within a nurturing environment to motivate the students' intrinsic interests and that is my goal!

Currently, I prepare my students for singing auditions on Broadway and off-Broadway productions, CCM Singing Competitions, Commercials, Musical Theatre Productions, The Voice, X-Factor, American Idol, Specialized Performance Schools, College Music Performances, and Choirs. A number of my piano students prepare for the NYSSMA and ABRSM examinations. As a clinical trained Vocologist, I also work with students to correct vocal fold injuries and to prevent further trauma, as well to improve phonatory production during singing.

Education / Training

As a music professional, I specialize in Voice (Contemporary Commercial Music), Vocology, and in Piano (Classical). I am certified by the New York Singer Teacher™s Association and the Somatic Voicework The LoVetri Method. In addition, I am a City/State Teacher Certified in Music (K-12) and a member of NYSTA, NATS, and MEANYC.

I am a graduate of Columbia University in Music & Music Education, M.A., Ed.M. I have a comprehensive background and training in Piano, Voice, Vocal Pedagogy, Vocology, and General Music. I studied music at Hunter College and I obtained a Bachelor Degree in Italian from Queens College. As an instrumentalist, I attended Fiorello LaGuardia of Music & Art & Performing Arts H.S. and the Center for Preparatory Studies in Music at Queens College.

My professional development is comprised of studies in Vocology at Keidar Voice Instititute, in Voice Management Techniques at Westminster Choir College, and in Dalcroze at Lucy Moses School.

Over the years, I studied with acclaimed vocal professionals such as Dr. Anat Keidar, Dr. Jeanne Goffi-Fynn, and David Sabella-Mills among others.

*** Lesson Details ***
My pedagogical model is designed to benefit students' aspirations and strengths in voice and piano. The outcomes are based on each individual's commitment to the process.

*** Studio Equipment ***
KORG Digital Keyboard, iMac, Macbook laptop, Cd player, iPod recording device, grand mirror

*** Travel Equipment ***
Piano is a must!

Fay is such an amazing teacher! I got into Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School thanks to her. Best Teacher I've had, she helps train your voice and goes through the vocal anatomy so you understand techniques such as proper breathing, posture, coordination, grounding, acting, diction...etc. I've been her student for about a year three years now and I have to say that my voice has improved so much as a performer all thanks to her! If you get the chance, at least take a class, you will not regret it!

Marcelle D.

Forest Hills, NY

Here we will focus on exactly what music you love! Have a favorite artist? Favorite musical genre? Bring in your ideas and we will work together so you can perform as you've always wanted to.

About Marcelle

Hello Singers! I am an experienced teacher with a Bachelors and Masters Degree in vocal performance and offer a wide range of vocal expertise. I have been teaching voice for more than 12 years in the New York metro area to a busy studio, including celebrity clients. My students have done exceptionally well, with a many individuals going on to score very highly in NYSSMA, perform solo recitals at Carnegie Hall and attend prestigious music schools such as Laguardia High School and The Manhattan School of Music. Further, I have had several students go on to audition for Broadway shows and land p
arts with great success. I have extensive experience in a variety of singing styles, as I have performed in many musicals, sang for a jazz big band and auditioned for opera houses around the world.

With proper vocal technique you can finally use the voice you never knew you had! Learn to vocalize, use proper breathing technique, sing with more ease and agility and overcome the fear of singing in public. I teach students of all ages with beginning to advanced knowledge of voice technique in most styles- classical, Broadway, jazz, pop, rock, gospel...etc. Looking forward to hearing you soon!

Audition ER available.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons with me are exactly what you need them to be-- Auditioning for something? Want to improve your technique? Weekend Karaoke warrior? Or just singing for fun? I'm here to help!

My style is mostly laid back and fun, always full of positive encouragement and the right amount of strictness (usually close to performance and audition crunch time!)

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upright piano, music, stand

*** Specialties ***
I'm very versatile- happy to work with students in all genres (opera, Broadway, rock, pop, gospel, folk...etc) I specialize in audition ER, work with all students to help with stage presence and performance. All students will work on ear training and some sight reading-- this will always make you a better musician.

I've been singing for quite a number of years with no formal training. Learning with Marcelle has been quite literally a breath of fresh air! With my first lesson she immediately pin pointed my bad habits and things I've been doing wrong. Our lesson was conducted via Skype and it was easy and convenient, and it felt like she was right there in the room with me...so if you are hesitant about Live Online learning don't be! I look forward to applying what I've learned thus far with Marcelle and can't wait to learn more from her! Top notch, professional, kind and courteous!

Indigo S.

Brooklyn, NY

Establish healthy technique, undo bad habits, and free your natural voice, enabling you to sing in the style of your choice.

About Indigo

Indigo has been working in the performing arts since she was biting ankles, first as a dancer and vocalist, and later as a guitarist. She's composed music for and/or sung dozens of international television commercials, spots on Law and Order and songs in Films premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, and as a lead guitarist and vocalist, toured the US, Canada, Europe and Iceland, extensively, performing in hundreds of theaters and rock clubs around the world, including-- Madison Square Garden, BAM, The Beacon Theater, Music Hall Of Williamsburg, The Bowery Ballroom, Club Nokia (LA), The Chicag
o Theater, Baby's All Right, The Mercury Lounge, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass (SF), Pickathon (Portland)

As a teacher, Indigo's method has, at it's core, a commitment to the idea of teaching a man to fish rather than giving him a fish, and every student, regardless of age or experience will be taught to understand, first and foremost, how music works, so that he or she comes away, not only with the skills to play the material covered in the lessons, but, eventually, the ability to teach themselves any other material they're interested in.

With an emphasis on ear training, her natural approach to learning theory, makes even the most wary or challenged student understand with ease, and find pleasure in the process of learning. Rote memorization is eliminated and replaced by a deep understanding, which grows naturally, while technique improves alongside it. Students quickly find themselves able to play, sing and understand things they'd only previously dreamed of.

These building blocks of music are the same regardless of the style of music you're interested in, but technique will be tailored to your specific interests and from the start, a portion of each lesson will be devoted to learning the material of your choice.

Indigo also specializes in coaching songwriters, and can, in a gentle and non-invasive way, help to guide you through the process of both mastering craft, and establishing your own individual voice as a writer.

Special for new students in 2016 - $5 discount for new Skype students!

I wrote on the wall years ago that I want to be, "a working, living, joy," and know it is important to be around someone who is working, practicing, and living the subject matter of which you desire. For one can read, watch, visualize and theorize for a long time...and so much more. But being around someone is different.
Indigo has helped me across the board, directly and indirectly. Directly, in that she has shown me some fundamentals "I need" to work on in order to achieve and generate the ideas within the self. Indirectly, in so much that a student can see her familiarity with her instrument (instrument being guitar and self) and a more proper persona to take on in order to facilitate being musical.
Furthermore, I have been to some of her shows since taking lessons, and seen her play with different bands (as a leader) in a very short amount of time. Indigo is working, writing, practicing, breathing, and ultimately living that joy right in front of my face. And she shares it with a strong diligence and patience. I can go on and on...But I'm Ticking Like a Time Bomb! Louie

Indigo is amazing! Extremely supportive, talented, and warm. As a super beginner, I noticed a dramatic change in just 5 lessons. She intuitively knows just what to do to open your voice and guide you. I felt immediately comfortable with her and she's very professional. She's a magic one! Couldn't recommend more highly.
