Let’s find some fun and joy by working on technique, performance, and letting your personality and individuality come through!

Audition coming up? Want to work on new material? Now is the perfect time to do it all while we are staying at home! :)

I am a native New Yorker (West Village!), graduate of Emerson College's BFA Musical Theatre program, and have been working in professionally and continuously in the business for 10 years. For the past year and a half I was performing in "Fiddler on the Roof (Yiddish)" directed by Tony and Oscar winner, Joel Grey.
I love connecting with students and passing along some of the passion and knowledge I have acquired from working in this industry. I am straight-forward, compassionate, and I have a good sense of humor when coaching. I want my students to feel EXCITED and CONFIDENT about the material they are doing and their approach to the work.
Most importantly, I strive to provide a supportive and encouraging environment for all!

About Abby

Abby is freaking amazing and you should 100% take lessons from her. She’s funny and talented and so knowledgeable about singing! I took lessons because I love musicals and wanted to learn how to manage breathing, etc. I have definitely improved and feel so cool & happy :) for real though, she doesn’t judge you at all and she totally gets everything you may be feeling. With her I was able to get my voice warm and feel comfortable enough to let it out! And she tailors her lessons to YOU. We sang what I was interested in. I am a teacher in real life so I know what good teaching is, and Abby is IT. Having lessons with her during quarantine has been a godsend, too! Take lessons with her & support artists— you won’t regret it!!

Amazing talent and even better teacher! I highly recommend her to both children and adults!
Lacy
Abby is amazing! I've been singing for over 30 years and have always wanted a voice coach. I looked through many profiles in my search. When I can across Abby's profile, I instantly wanted her to train me. I've always loved Broadway, and I wanted an empowering coach like her. Abby is a star, and she will make you feel like one too. I needed help with technique, daily habits, and confidence. Abby is very patient and really listens to her students. She always encourages me and gives feedback in a positive way. She finds songs within my voice range that challenge me, and also works with songs I choose. I look forward to classes every week. In the short time I've been working with Abby, my voice and confidence have improved. Abby also taught me great daily exercises and breathing techniques. I highly recommend Abby for anyone seeking a positive and skilled voice/musical theater coach.

I like to be super-customized with my lessons! If there's a pop song your student wants to learn, GREAT! If they're getting ready for an upcoming orchestra piece and are struggling with their part, let's work on that! I am super flexible, and just like my students to ENJOY their time working on music with me!

It was only a first lesson but I can already tell I'm going to be taking more lessons with Daniel. He's very knowledgeable, patient, and dedicated. He detailed a specific plan for me to work on that isn't too rigid or boring, I'm looking forward to relearning the flute with him.

Your time and money is too precious to waste on a mediocre teacher. My students get results from the very first lesson. For over 20 years I've helped students of all ages go far beyond their goals; whether it's learning a favorite song, getting in a band, winning music scholarships, or learning music for school ensembles. My lessons are tailored to your interests and taught at your pace.

About Gerald

Not all teachers are the same. I've had great success as a student and a teacher; making me the best choice to help aspiring drummers reach their goals.

HIRE GERALD NOW! I've had online lessons with several teachers before Gerald. He is absolutely the best! Even over the internet he can immediately zero in on what you're doing right, wrong, then show you the quickest and easiest way to get better. The sound quality of his studio is better than any other drum teacher. Instead of using the horrible mic that's built into a laptop or iPad that distorts and sounds terrible, Gerald using a dozen professional mics to give you superior sound during every lesson. He simply gives the best experience.

"Fantastic Teacher!

Alex is an awesome teacher! His ability to communicate information in a way that is easily understood no matter the complexity is a rare thing. Alex is obviously extremely passionate about teaching and music. Alex goes above the expected level of effort from a teacher, making sure every lesson has new and interesting material to be covered, as well as staying in contact as needed outside of lessons to answer any questions that may arise while practicing. If you are looking for someone who is dedicated to your learning process, as well as doing everything they can to keep material interesting and fun, I would suggest Alex."

"I've been taking lessons from Chris less than a year (I think), and it has been a very positive experience. He is well-versed in many styles of music and has a excellent grasp of music-theory, which he is happy to share and apply to my style. I've been playing guitar for several years, and the fact that Chris will adjust his teaching methods to fit my style is invaluable.

On a professional-level, these lessons take place in my home, and Chris is super-punctual, and is never late, which helps with my hectic schedule. His communication is excellent, and he responds quickly to all messages via text and email.

Great experience. Great guy. Highly recommended."
