Marissa R. Sunnyside, NY

I will help you choose repertoire and develop it for optimum vocal health, and beautiful, pure tonality.

About Marissa

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) ...

Sarah G. Brooklyn, NY

I specialize in classical singing and know a great deal of opera repertoire.

About Sarah

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 ...

The perfect teacher

Sarah G. has been my voice teacher for some months now. She has had only my untrained, rusty soprano to work with. But with patience and an expert knowledge of the way the body works to produce sound, she is retooling my voice into something that resembles a musical instrument. She knows both the limits and potential of my voice, pushes me into places I didn’t think I could go, and supports my attempts to go there. In other words, the perfect teacher. She is pleasant, prompt and professional, while being warm and encouraging. Her own beautiful voice is almost motivation enough for a student like me; if only I could sound like that.... Some day. Maybe.
Sarah’s own training has been exemplary. Julie Simson was her teacher at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where Sarah earned her bachelor’s degree in vocal performance. Moving on the McGill University, she received her master’s degree in opera performance under the tutelage of Aline Kutan. With her current coach, Gary Norden, Sarah is extending her training not only to create a singing career for herself, but to rebuild and refine voices like mine. I am lucky to have found her.

Knowledgeable and Patient!

I have been working with Sarah for almost 6 months and every time we meet I learn something new. She is extremely patient and knowledgeable and has a way of explaining techniques that make it understandable to someone with minor knowledge. I always look forward to our lessons because I always leave with a positive experience. I'm so thankful I found her because she truly is a wonderful teacher!

Amazingly patient!

I just stated pursing my career in singing and only wanted the best voice teacher. My search led me to Sarah. She is amazingly talented and super patient. I was worried at first because I knew I had a lot to learn. Especially being that I spent years singing in my room and acquired many bad habits. Sarah is helping me through this and I'm so greatful. I am learning notes, piano, and everything else that will help me excel in singing. Anyone would be lucky to have her. She is not only a great teacher but a great person as well. I look forward to more times with her.
Mary A. Brooklyn, NY

About Mary

Find your true voice. Lessons are catered to your individual needs and will help you to build a strong foundation in vocal technique and creative expression. We will practice breathing fundamentals, posture, tone production, diction, and delivery, which will enable you to increase your range, stamina, and overall vocal facility. I like to keep things simple: Singing better simply means to be able to do more of the things you want to do with your voice and to do them reliably. True, it usually includes things like singing with more range, better tone, stamina, passion, volume and power as well as singing in tune and without pain. But most importantly, that you can use your singing voice freely and express yourself musically in the ways you intend. Since your body is your instrument,

I began taking lessons with Mary after I heard her sing. Besides having a terrific voice I really love how effortless she makes singing look. I've been taking lessons with her for about a month and she's been helping me connect the dots. I appreciate her method. She works with me to build my voice and doesn't push a style or direction. Her descriptions give me directions on what to think and how to feel when I sing. I look forward to the coming months!

I started training with Mary about a year ago to get my voice back in shape. After my first lesson with her, I felt so happy and inspired. Her positive and passionate energy is so powerful. I learned so much after only one lesson, and as we continue, my voice keeps getting stronger and my range is expanding. Recently, she coached me through a few pieces I had to prepare for an audition. She helped me stay disciplined and positive. With her help, I totally nailed it. I sincerely appreciate her enthusiasm and vibrant spirit along with her support and encouragement. Mary's an all around unique, talented and genuine person that I'm lucky to have stumbled upon.

I came to Mary as a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter who wanted help with singing/vocals. A few things were apparent from the beginning: she is a creative, patient, yet demanding teacher with a razor-sharp ear and an endless bag of similes, metaphors, and visual and mental techniques to get across the point she's trying to explain (which is all aimed at coaxing the best out of you in each lesson). I've had many music teachers over the years, and it is rare to find one who combines vast knowledge of music theory and the fundamentals/techniques of their particular instrument with the ability to translate and teach all of this effectively. Mary is exactly this type of teacher. I also appreciate that her passion and enthusiasm for music and creativity practically oozes out of her pores, and in the year+ that we've been working together she's challenged me to not only improve my vocals but develop my songwriting skills using Logic. I recommend Mary without qualification to anyone from the casual singer/strummer to the advanced musician or studio geek who wants to up their game to the next level.
Monica S. Astoria, NY

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

Monica is an outstanding voice teacher. She customized each lesson, from warm ups to repertoire choices, to fit the age, skill level, vocal strengths, and interests of each singer. Watching her work with high school age students is a joy--she loves what she does and the students respond very well to her. They are enthusiastic about going to their lessons and beaming when the lessons are over. Monica brings her strong vocal pedagogy knowledge, along with her own talent and passion for teaching to the voice lesson. She is a wonderful instructor. Highly recommend!

Besides being a fantastic vocalist, Monica is also a great teacher. She is very creative, patient and calm (no drama), but is still disciplined and persistent. She managed to get basic music theory into my thick skull and help me with sight reading, and did not yell at me when I didn't do my homework! The only downside is that she is so talented and well trained that she makes singing look effortless.

Monica is such a fantastic teacher. She is one of those people who really listens to the needs of the student, and gives her all at every lesson. Through her knowledge and experience, Monica has rebuilt my voice and my confidence from the bottom up. I highly recommend working with her!

Nina Kennedy has increased the range and power of my voice via a series of vocal exercises, which also improved my sense of pitch. Our use of the Solfeggio system strengthened my ability to harmonize and to solidify pitch memory. I find her mild-mannered support to be very helpful and encouraging. I didn't know that I was capable of performing the repertoire she suggested!

I am very grateful for her faith in my abilities!
Claire M. Woodside, NY

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!

About Claire

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!

Claire has been my daughter's piano teacher for two years and she's excellent!
Her knowledge and patience with kids make the lessons interesting and fun. I can see improvements week after week, not only in music-playing but also in my daughter's confidence. Claire is instilling a passion for music that I hope my daughter will keep forever.
