Rachel H.

Jersey City, NJ

About Rachel

I have performed at multiple venues in New York City, including Carnegie Hall and Off-Broadway. I studied opera performance and musical theater at Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ and acting at Primary Stages. Along with these qualifications, my positive spirit and belief in my students has yielded outstanding results in their musical accomplishments.

I've been teaching voice, guitar, and piano lessons for the past four years, as well as coaching students for specific auditions (school plays, national tours, honors choir auditions). Let me aid you in achieving your dreams!

***
Lesson Details ***
As a performer, I have learned that "learning" is never done in this field. Even as a professional, I still take private voice lessons, dance classes, and acting classes. As well as the occasional piano, guitar, and dialect coaching.

My teaching style is based off of my many years of being a student to some of the finest performers in the world. I am direct and focused, but like to keep my students relaxed. My key to teaching success is adapting to each student's specific needs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
At my home studio in Jersey City, NJ and at my studio in midtown Manhattan I have a: Keyboard (piano at studio in Manhattan); Guitar; Pitch Pipe; Laptop with speakers; Mirror

*** Travel Equipment ***
If travelling to your home, I would require you have a keyboard. I can bring my guitar and pitch pipe.

*** Specialties ***
Classical Music (art songs, opera)
Traditional Broadway (Rodgers and Hammerstein...)
Contemporary Broadway (Stephen Schwartz...)

My first vocal teacher and the best!

Ms. Rachel was an amazing vocal teacher! We would always start off with simple and fun warm-ups, breathing techniques, and would practice singing songs from musicals. My first couple lessons she taught me how to sing I Feel Pretty from West Side Story and we both had so much fun with it! After a little while we learned Cups from Pitch Perfect and then we got into the Vaccai book and I learned a couple songs from there. Overall Ms. Rachel was the best! She even offered to Skype a lesson with me since she moved. She cared about me and always helped me improve my voice in every way she could. I love her!

Amy C.

Weehawken, NJ

About Amy

I have been a voice, acting, and teacher of creative arts for over 25 years. My background includes ten years of classical training with Maestro Julio Berrocal, as well as vocal training through the Feldekrais approach with Marcy Lindhiemer. In acting I have studied with renowned Stanislavsky scholar Sonia Moore and Master acting teacher of the Strasberg Method, Marcia Haufrecht. I received a B.A. For comparative literature and creative writing at the State University of New York at Purchase and I am currently studying for a masters in social work at Walden University.
I believe, within al
l of us, Is the ability to express something distinctive and original. I work to help the student discover their individual and unique voice, weather it be through singing, acting or writing. I share with my students tools to gain the ability and confidence to achieve their goals. I empathize deeply with the challenges students may face when pursuing a life in the creative and performing arts, having worked professionally in those arena's for most of my adult life. I believe, it is the teachers job to respect each students individual process of learning.
My students have gone on to become recording artists, Broadway performers, movie actors, blues and cabaret artists and published writers.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice
I am an empathetic teacher, sensitive to the students individual process of learning. My singing lessons usually start with breathing and relaxation exercises. Vocal exercise come next, then when the student is fully warmed up, we will begin to work on songs. It is important that the student be part of the process of picking material since the more they personally respond to the material the more apt they are to be engaged in their lessons and the more quickly they will learn. After three to six months they will understand the fundamentals of breathing and relaxation and its importance to proper vocal training. They will have begun the process of extending their range and will understand the principles of performance in song.
Acting
As an acting teacher and coach, I tailor my classes to the needs of each student. I utilize improvisatory and sensory techniques to help unleash spontaneity. I also encourage the students to use their personal experiences as a way to access a full range of emotions. I enjoy working with the student on script analysis, so as to discover the underlying motivations of the character the student is working on.
Creative and Lyric Writing
I use prompts as a way to get the student writing. Often, I will ask the student to write for stretches of time without editing themselves. It is important to unleash imagination before beginning the process of editing. Many times it is the unexpected that is the must compelling.

*** Studio Equipment ***
home- 10 minutes away from Manhattan with piano, seating for parents
-practice studio seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a piano, cd/mp3 player and an large library of songbooks to work from. The student should bring sheet music of songs they want to work on and a recording device.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching how to sing rock, pop, musical theater, jazz, and blues without hurting the voice as well as method acting instruction.

Dr. Collins is a deeply caring, skilled, and knowledgeable voice teacher who, for the past month and a half, has helped me formulate and reach toward my operatic goals.

Very patient and flexible in my scheduling our lessons. In addition, he is extremely thoughtful in choosing and creating vocal exercises for me to work on.

He is an absolute pleasure to work with. Looking forward to many more lessons with this fine singer!

Dan is a marvelous teacher.
His wealth of information, dedication and patience are a true gem. He is passionate about teaching and has a wonderful, positive, uplifting approach. We worked on various aspects of technique, such as strengthening the voice improving pitch, range, breath efficiency and vocal power.
We worked hard but there was always levity in our lessons. He is classically trained, but his instruction applies to all singing styles, including my own (Bossa Nova). Thanks, Dan. I am grateful and I will definitely be back for more!

Dr. Collins is a fantastic teacher! He takes time to listen to your voice then comes up with specific exercises, suggestions, and encouraging comments to bring out the best sound. I heard results after my first class and every class after.

I also learn best by example and he's patient enough to sing verses along with me in a beautiful baritone. We've even practiced pronunciation for other languages and will go over translations to help with the emotion of a piece.

I'd highly recommend Dr. Collins for any level vocal student/performer/hobbyist. Your voice will only improve under his coaching.

Angela M.

New York, NY

As a professional singer with experience on the theatrical stage, I can assist in the basics of pronounciation and announciation of the English Language.

About Angela

I am a professional opera singer and voice instructor living in New York City. I have an opera, musical theater, church and choral background. I am comfortable teaching all styles of music, but please note that my training is in Classical Voice so my focus will be healthy tone production, breathing and support. It would be my pleasure to work with my students on basic music theory. I can also help students prepare their voices for public speaking engagements.

I studied with Angela for a year when I lived in NYC. She was a fantastic teacher! I took lessons to improve the quality of my voice, especially my higher range. I only stopped because I moved, but I would have continued. Angela really gave me confidence while improving my overall technique! I would recommend her to ANYONE!

Kent has the ability to do or teach drama, comedy and improvisation. He has wisdom, talent, intelligence and integrity. I know of his abilities to teach, direct and to create a performance of the highest level. He's one of the best, as I know from having been taught by him. Try him out and judge for yourself. You'll be better for it in more ways than one.

I was honored to have been guided by Kent J. during a historic presentation in honor of Malcolm X in Las Vegas. His patient and motivating spirit makes him an excellent teacher and mentor. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and look forward to the opportunity to be under his leadership once again. Because of Mr. J, I have decided to seek additional acting training for my own career.
