Private Singing Teacher

You should expect to learn all vocal techniques just the same as any student but we fine tune your technique balance to suit the desired sound for different genres. We cannot just stop at the sound, the full performance has to be explored so we go over musical tools to enhance performance vocally as well as acting though the song, staging, guestures, and facials.

About Marissa

My musical journey started in high school when my algebra teacher saw me in the hallway, grabbed my hand and brought me to the choir room to sign up for The Sound of Music auditions. To this day I cannot believe my math teacher unknowingly sent me straight down a path that I would walk the rest of

Marissa is amazing. She has been guiding my daughter through improving vocal techniques, building confidence, preparing for auditions, and navigating the ups and downs of life in the performing arts for a few years now. She is a wonderful teacher and mentor.

Private Singing Teacher

While instructing private voice students, I teach the functional approach to singing. This mindset allows the vocalist to focus on singing freely in all genres. I believe it is important to not only teach a wide variety of repertoire, but to also inform my students on vocal health. Along with a functional approach to the voice, I promote a safe and welcoming environment to make music in. If a student does not feel comfortable in the space they are in, then they will not perform to their fullest potential and I would not have completed my job. With some instruction, anyone can sing, and I provide the tools necessary to do so.

Sarah was energetic, positive, and kind with my daughter, age 11, who was really struggling to get a handle on a song for a play she has been trying to train for. This was her first voice lesson ever. My daughter was drawn in immediately by Sarah’s practical and happy approach and felt more capable and comfortable at the end of the session and is definitely looking forward to the next one. Hard to ask for more than that in a first lesson!

This is not a singing lesson. These are lessons on how to express yourself through song. A lot of people can sing/carry a tune and we WILL fine tune those skills! But it takes a lot to be someone else while you are singing. Tiger Woods doesn't just hit one golf shot, Roger Federer doesn't always hit the drop shot over the net. Being an actor is liking being an athlete. You need a bag of tricks. So let's find what YOUR tricks are in a safe zone where you can fail. Because when you fail, you learn! My lessons will consist of acting and vocal training being taught coincided. I will never promise you a part/a role/acceptance into a large scale school. But I do promise that if you put all the work in, you WILL improve. Let's get started!

About Tristan

I'm a NYC based Actor fresh out of Graduate School. As auditions are closed for a while, I'm going to be teaching lessons to help keep my skills AND YOURS sharp for when that audition season rolls up! I graduated in 2018 with two BA's from the Crane School of Music and SUNY Potsdam; One in Music

Regina
I’m a very shy and timid person when I first meet people and it’s something I’ve always struggled with. From the moment Tristan became my teacher though his warm and friendly demeanor helped me get past this struggle almost immediately. He was always willing to teach at a pace that best suited me but also made sure to push me when I needed it. While the lessons with him only lasted for a short period, the experience was worth it. He helped me tune my singing practice to a higher standard and helped me better express the emotions that were being portrayed in each song. Beyond that, he also found moments of fun where we could goof off and relax, even for just a moment, to help calm my anxieties and get me out of my head when I started getting too frustrated or upset with myself for messing up. Despite being on the younger side, Tristan helped me with not only my singing and acting, but helped me better break out of my shell and have more confidence in myself.
Jonathan Stinson, DMA
Tristan was my voice student for 5 years. He has a extensive knowledge of voice technique. He has a very healthy approach to his own singing and he demands the same of his students!
Kim Marie Lesso
Tristan was employed by my Academy as an Assistant Summer Camp Director. His position required him to teach both acting and singing to our students. He also stepped up and took the Director's position staging and choreographing the skits/extrapolations from Musicals the students performed their last day before an audience.

Tristan has a real great intuition as the to style of learner he works with. He is very quick to taylor his lessons to the needs, performance level and learning style of the student.

I highly recommend Tristan Lesso for your Acting or Vocal lesson needs! He just finished Suma Cum Laude with a Master's Degree in Vocal Performance in Musical Theatre at the Number 1 University for his degree...NYU Steinhardt.

Online Singing Teacher

I am an experienced Vocal Instructor. I have trained singers of all ages including: elementary, middle school, high school and adults. I was musically trained at the University of California Riverside. While studying there I was a soloist/vocalist for the Andean and Mariachi Ensembles; also I was a choir member of the Choral Society. Further I played several instruments in the Gamelan, Taiko, and Rondalla Ensembles at UCR. I am patient and enjoy the challenge of working with different personalities and backgrounds. I am bi-lingual in Spanish.

About Cynthia

As a soloist and teacher I have sung and taught many different genres. I don't believe in forcing a specific genre on my students. We work together to find songs that will help them grow while having fun. I love to see my students grow in technique and ability. When I hear their range grow as well

Shes very very patient and such a nice teacher. I never knew how high of a note i could hit till she taught me. Shes just such an amazing person and teacher. I highly reccomend her.

"I had been singing for a few years before meeting Josh and he is by far my favorite singing teacher. Not only has he helped me find my own sound and style but his unique take on teaching has made me a better singer, songwriter and overall musician. He also prepared me for my Berklee audition in the winter and I got in because of all his help and advice. Amazing teacher, I highly recommend him to students of all ages, whether you're just starting out or need help songwriting he is definitely the man for that!"

"Improving every day w/ Michael!

Michael is amazing! It is my first time doing a Skype lesson on Take Lessons, and it exceeded all expectations.

This is about the seventh time I've worked with him, and I see progress every lesson with the his vocal technique. He usually does a vocal warm up the first part of the lesson and then we go over a song of my or his choosing depending on what my goal was. When I was working on performing the Star Spangled Banner, he helped me become comfortable line by line and tailored each phrase to my vocal range. He is a 100% effort teacher, putting all of his passion into the lesson. You can tell that he loves what he does, from the patience and willingness to complete the task at hand even if it is over the allotted time, to the extra tracks he records and sends to me so I can practice on my own during the week. I appreciate his sincere and honest constructive criticism and I look forward to working with him in the future.

As far as logistics goes, not counting the times when Skype skipped a few seconds of speech, working with Michael has been seamless. He is very professional yet very down to earth. He is very flexible with the times of the lessons and is easy to get in contact with if there is an issue with the schedule. I recommend a Skype lesson to anyone not only because of the convenience, but also the range of expertise you can get. Michael lives in Brooklyn - and there is no way I could have worked with him living in San Diego before this! Thus, the teaching environment is a 4/5 simply because of errors of technology not by fault of the teacher."

"GREAT TEACHER

My son who is 7 yrs old now loves his teacher, Ms. Kristina. I see my son enjoying every lesson with her. He is learning correct breathing exercises while doing vocalization. After, he sings a song that likes. Sometimes, it is difficult to teach children because of their moods but Ms. Kristina can make every lesson for my son fun and enriching. He's been doing great for a 7 yr old."
