Singing is one of the most challenging and rewarding areas of musical performance. It's so personal and expressive that a lot of us feel uncomfortable approaching the voice at all. I've been singing and performing for over a decade. Using proper breathing technique and customized warm-ups I can help you become the best possible singer you can be!

I had the best time taking voice lessons with Josh! I always felt like he was able to meet me where I was and allow me to learn at the pace that made sense for me, while also pushing me a bit where it made sense. I was able to grow as a vocalist without even really realizing it, because I was having so much fun!

Josh and Niki B.
Josh has been teaching our son (14 years old) piano and voice for over a year. He is an exceptional teacher and musician. Our son is really into musical theater and pop music. Josh has done an amazing job getting him playing and singing the music he loves quickly and successfully. He incorporates vocal and piano technique, music theory, and style into the context of pieces of music our son is motivated to learn, practice, and perform. Josh is incredibly smart and personable. He relates well to our son and has built a strong, trusting teacher-student relationship with him. We have also hired Josh to perform at family events for us. He was incredibly talented and professional. We cannot recommend Josh highly enough. He is fantastic!

My lesson plans are designed to be musical and fun. I want my students to understand the language of the music by studying their favorite bands and understanding the theory behind it. I have a strategy for everyone starting from beginner, intermediate, to advanced. I remember picking up a guitar for the first time and what a struggle it was to play my favorite songs. There is a method for achieving these goals and it is different for everyone. The one thing that will allow you to succeed is having a desire to learn and a passion for music. If you have those two things then I can direct you to the right path to achieve your musical goals!

About Robert

It is my experience that no matter what kind of music you end up playing a solid classical piano background is invaluable. I was privately trained in classical piano from the ages 5 - 17 in Los Angeles, California. My teachers were Mary Brady, Mae Gilbert Reese and Jeane Weiss. I graduated from Har

Stop wasting your time - take Robert.

I only had the pleasure of taking piano lessons with Robert for two months since I got into Harvard and had to move to the East Coast, but I can confidently attest that he is a phenomenal teacher. To begin with, Robert brings to the table not only his classical training but also an open, creative, out-of-the-box approach. He is extremely knowledgeable and seasons lessons with fantastic facts about composers and pieces which makes everything a lot more interesting and memorable. lessons are versatile and designed to develop several key skills simultaneously. I never really played the piano before but after only two months with Robert I could read notes, develop my technique and actually play two beautiful pieces! If you are looking for a well-rounded, brilliant, cool teacher - search no more.

My teaching approach and vocal studio embrace the singer's personal and professional journey.

Many teachers conduct voice lessons using a series of preconstructed warmups and vocalises. This is rigid and ineffective, as each singer's vocal journey is unique. My teaching approach embraces the individual strengths of the singer, catering to their specific pedagogical needs. Every lesson is different. Creativity, playfulness, curiosity, humor, exploration, sensitivity, and respect are held in a safe container during lessons, acting as fundamental collaborative elements of my studio.

I am joyful to have extensive experience collaborating with:

*singers and dancers performing on Broadway and national tours

*contemporary recording artists

*actors in film and television

*voice over and audio book talent

*university and conservatory musical theater and voice majors

*performing arts middle and high school students

I take pride in working with any person who has ...

It's rare to find a voice teacher that is honest, constructive, kind, and encouraging all at once, but that is Desiree! She is incredibly warm but is still upfront and gives truthful and beneficial feedback. She is playful and up to try anything, always welcoming ideas from students. I feel I've grown immensely as a vocalist through my time working with her. She has equipped me with tools and exercises I can do on my own when struggling with a piece of music that I constantly use. She is also so generous, and I have always felt that she genuinely wants me to succeed. Do yourself a favor, and work with Desiree!!!!!!!

"Amelie loves Vanessa, We started Amelie taking lessons online due to not being able to find a local Voice teacher. We have since been contacted by locals to teach Amelie and each time she has chose to stay on-line learning from Vanessa. Amelie does not get much time to practice singing, but absolutely loves to sing with Vanessa. Amelie has came a very long way in her voice ranges, also her breathing while singing. We will stay with Vanessa until Amelie can sing as well as she wishes! Amelie has Aspergers and is a quiet soul, Vanessa brings out the best in her."

50+ Best Acapella Songs for Girls, Guys, Groups & More | TakeLessons

Every singer should have a few traditional and contemporary acapella songs under their belt. Many times, singers are required to sing acapella at auditions - without an accompanist or background track. Music directors often ask singers to sing acapella in order to hear and test their musicality and stamina. (Acapella singing requires that these skills be sharp!) It also shows that you’re able to be a leader, and that you're comfortable having the spotlight on you as a solo singer. I …
