I will help you choose repertoire and develop it for optimum vocal health, and beautiful, pure tonality.
I am a professional vocalist with a broad range of experience. With a Bachelor of Music (Musical Theater) from Belmont University I am more than qualified to teach with a well supported vocal foundation. As a true lover of music and arts, I encourage my students to sing as much as possible! My confident and exciting approach to singing brings out the best in my students, which translates beautifully to real life situations. *** Lesson Details *** Each person is different in nature and each performer has a personal style and goal. My goal is to get to know what kind of voice and style each student desires, and base the curriculum off of that knowledge. A basic lesson looks like this: 5 minutes of breathing exercises 10-25 minutes of vocal technique exercises (e.g. scales) ...
I specialize in classical singing and know a great deal of opera repertoire.
I am a performer and teacher residing in Brooklyn, NY. Although I am classically trained, my unique methods apply to all kinds of singing styles--even to speaking! I believe that music lessons should be fun and flexible. I work with my students to find exercises and songs that are most suited for their learning styles and tastes. *** Lesson Details *** My approach begins and ends with the breath. Breath creates pitch, rhythm, musicality, and emotion. If you think about it, each way we show our emotions begins with breath--laughing, crying, sighing, etc. I use a very natural approach to singing, exaggerating the noises we and the animal kingdom already make every day to sing in a very healthy, sustainable way. Have you ever wondered why a dog can bark for hours without tiring? Why a ...
I love teaching! As a lyric mezzo soprano and I have over fifteen years of experience teaching students of all ages. I especially enjoy working with students who are excited to learn about music and singing. The thing I enjoy most about teaching is helping my students take risks and watching them grow as performers. I'm a hands on teacher and I encourage an open dialogue in lessons. Recent performances include performances at Carnegie Hall,with the San Francisco Orchestra and Vienna Philharmonic, the Metropolitan Opera, Santa Fe Opera, and Central City Opera
I completed my Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance with a certificate in Music in Education from the New England Conservatory of music and completed a Master of Music in Opera Performance from the University of Maryland Opera Studio. I have performed in places such as the historic Jordan Hall, Avery Fischer Hall, Carnegie Hall, The Cornerstone Arts Center, the Academy of Music in Philadelphia, the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center and the National Gallery of Art. I serve on the music teaching staff of both Highbridge Voices and the National Children's chorus in addition to maintaining an active private teaching studio and a busy international performing schedule.
With opera voice, one experiences the ultimate in the "sport" of singing. This involves exploring the full range of one's instrument with the most glorious freedom and energetic connection. Opera singing blossoms from a completely organic coordination of breath and communication. I stress attention to honest, sincere dramatic interpretation (every bit as much as other forms of musical theater!) and joyous exploration of the lush musicality of this art form.
Every student is unique, and I tailor my lessons to best meet their individual needs. It is important to me that students learn through lessons that are insightful, interactive and fun! :) I began teaching in 1999 and have students of all ages and experience levels. Most recently a student of mine booked a contract for the national tour of "A Christmas Story!" In addition to being a voice and piano teacher, I am also a professional performing artist, singing on stages both in NYC and all over the world. I have a graduate degree in music from the Peabody Conservatory. My musical training began in 1982 and has encompassed voice, flute and piano. I am happy to discuss pricing packages and the possibility of having lessons in your own home, as well as any additional scheduling ...
Master's degree from the Juilliard School.
Nina K. was born in Nashville, Tennessee. Her father and mother were concert pianists and professors of piano, as well as serving as director and accompanist for the Fisk Jubilee Singers. Nina gave her first complete piano recital at nine years old, and appeared as piano soloist with the Nashville Symphony playing Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue at age 13. She has appeared in concert and as piano soloist with symphony orchestras internationally. A conducting apprentice under Maestro Kurt Masur, she holds a master's degree from the Juilliard School. As a filmmaker and producer, her films have been selected for screenings at the Berlin International Film Festival, as well as international film festivals in New York, Los Angeles, Frankfurt, Jerusalem, London, Munich, Oslo, and Philadelphia.
I've been teaching in NYC for four years and am also a professional, working soprano in New York. I work with students of all voice types and levels.
The classical technique I teach incorporates consistent breath management and consistent, pure vowels. The combination and synchronization of these allow the singer to access all the resonance necessary for classical singing in a healthy, stress-free way. I also work with students on diction in the operatic languages (French, Italian, German and English) as well as help them understand stylistic differences across the history of classical music.
I teach classical/operatic singing to singers as young as 15, and you're never too old to start singing classically! Try something new with your voice, prepare your audition for that musical or for your college auditions. We will work together to create a free sound that is individual to you in a fun environment.
Can't wait to meet you!
I'm a professional singer and a passionate teacher of voice and beginning piano. I have been singing since I was five, and studying voice since age 14, going on to complete a Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Voice Performance. The classical technique I teach gives my students the tools to sing in a variety of styles, whether opera, broadway, pop, or rock. I also teach beginning piano for both children and adults, as well as ear training and musicianship. Everyone can make music. Even if you think you can't carry a tune, come learn with me!
