Samuel
My son is quite shy and anxious about performing below what he develops as an expectation for himself - in everything, from sports to school work to music. Nicole's combination of professional excellence, efficiency and warmth made him immediately feel comfortable and open to constructive feedback . Nicole's teaching style is excellent. He is improving noticeably with every lesson.
Daisy H.
Daisy very much enjoyed her first lesson with Nicole and said she was very encouraging and gave her great pointers about how to improve. We are so pleased and look forward to more lessons to come!

As a vocalist trained in Classical, Jazz, and popular styles of music, I have come to understand that the art of singing is inherently a highly emotional, physical and intellectual experience. With precise discipline, motivation and perseverance, music can seemingly fall into place. When these elements are united in preparation for a performance, the voice becomes free and the possibilities seem endless. My goal as a an artist and teacher is to discover these boundless possibilities for myself and therefore my students.

To best do this, I have adopted an adaptive and collaborative style of teaching. At the start of each semester I assess each student’s unique strengths, goals, and expectations. Once this is done I am able to create a personalized lesson plan that will evolve as each student progresses in his or her training. A focus on instilling the foundational skills of discipline, stamina and creativity in accordance with functional voice technique, results in the growth of ...

Kasey is a wonderful, talented, and encouraging teacher! She knows her craft and provides excellent instruction in a warm and friendly manner. She is extremely patient yet challenges her students to do well to meet their full potential. She is a lovely and hard working person and I so enjoy taking lessons with her!
Joseph
Kasey has been working with my daughter for 3 years now. I have watched my daughter gain confidence while making tremendous progress. Kasey is organized, caring and confident in her teaching. My daughter respects Kasey and enjoys going to her weekly lessons. I highly recommend Kasey as a voice teacher
Sheila
Kasey is a wonderful teacher. Before taking lessons with Kasey I had to stop singing for more than 5 years due to illness. She was amazing at safely bringing me back to vocal health. I am now able to sing light opera and folk songs even better than I used to. I am impressed with her level of knowledge and she really motivates me to work hard at my craft. She is truly the best teacher that I have ever had and would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to be the best singer that they can be.

I love singing and I love teaching! I encourage my students to be open and honest with me about what they want in lessons so we can always be on the same page. I make my lessons unique by giving my students the chance to learn technique and learn all the fun things that they have always wanted to sing! My students learn the proper techniques and mechanics of singing (breath support, posture, anatomy of the voice, etc.) singing multiple genres of music (classical, musical theater, jazz, etc.), performing in front of others, how to walk into an audition, and more. My students are given pieces to hone in and focus on one or more technical skill, and two which they choose whether it be something they have always wanted to learn, something they consider for fun, or something they want to use to build their repertoire.

I have studied Composition at Juilliard and have an M.M. in Composition from Brooklyn College Conservatory of Music, and also am a prolific musical theater composer, interested in Tin Pan Alley standards, folk and popular genres. I will work with you to go from idea to notes on a page, and can also help you get started inputting your music into a computer program for clear notation and playback.

I took a songwriting class that Kit taught at Schenectady County Community College, and it was a lot of fun and extremely helpful! She knows tons about all sorts of song genres both as a composer and a lyricist, and helped me understand a lot of basic ideas about music composition that I'd never really grasped. I would study with her again if she were back in town!

Introduction to Proper Guitar Posture

As a beginner, proper guitar posture is one of the most important beginning steps before you learn about chords, picking, and strumming. Sadly, learning proper guitar posture is often an afterthought to learning to play. Although whether you choose to sit or stand has little effect on your tone or technique, proper guitar posture is important for many other reasons. Why Is Proper Posture Important? Proper guitar posture makes the work of your hands and fingers easier, conserving your energy. …
