Ariella is an incredible teacher! In under an hour, she guided me through just about every area of vocal training: we worked on breathing, vocal positioning, different volumes, and singing across the break. I was amazed by the ease with which she integrated my own goals and her pedagogy. She is a kind, compassionate, professional, and extremely skillful teacher. I hope many people get a chance to study with her!

After 12 classes and a lot of practice, I was much more confidant with my speech and pronunciation. Nicole was very professional and knew exactly how to help me improve.
