Before my first class, I knew nothing about opera singing. I have had 10+ classes with Vanessa now and have learned a lot in techniques. She is very patient and knowledgable. She is able to tell instantly what's right or wrong which is super helpful.

Vanessa is amazing teacher!!! The best I ever had!!!!
Vince M.
I am a professional speaker and I decided to pursue some speaker voice coaching. This was my first lesson and Vanessa was friendly and great personality. I felt comfortable with her
immediately. She provided education, demonstration, observed me apply the techniques, and offered constructive feedback. After the class, I was excited to practice what I learned. I will definitely continue to go back to Vanessa. I highly recommend her.

I am a professional opera singer, active performer, and avid teacher of voice. My teaching focuses on exercises that strengthen your voice so you can sing (and speak!) clearly, beautifully, and resonantly. These exercises will help reduce fatigue, raspiness, hoarseness, and strain in your speaking voice. Through our work together, you can expect to build confidence in your speaking voice and to more freely express yourself. I hope to hear you soon!

About Joshua

I am a professional opera singer actively performing across the country. I graduated from Columbia University cum laude with a B.A. in Sustainable Development, and then focused my music studies at Manhattan School of Music, where I received the President's Award and graduated with a M.M. in Voice.

Josh is a wonderful voice teacher who happens to also be an amazing human being. I feel comfortable enough to take risks and grow in my voice every time we have a lesson together. He has truly helped me expand as an artist and learn new information about singing!
Leya
Josh is such an amazing and caring teacher! Singing can be a vulnerable thing, especially when you are working on parts of your voice that need improvement and might not currently sound the best. However, Josh really made me feel comfortable when we were working on those parts of my voice and I could definitely see improvement even within the span of an hour! He is very knowledgeable when it comes to all the exercises that help you bring your sound forward, sing without tension and control your breathing. His enthusiasm for teaching is incredible and I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants try classical singing!!
Anthony
An awesome teacher that makes me feel self assured and excited to work on the next level of singing! Very positive but also constructive, encouraging me to grow. Incredibly experienced performer as well

Emma is a wonderful teacher. She was genuine and gentle when giving feedback. She was very relatable to my daughter who is 13 and made her feel completely at ease. My daughter learned a lot in one lesson and thoroughly enjoyed it.
AriDy Nox
Emma is an incredible performer, artist, song-writer, and educator! She is incredibly patient, kind, welcoming, and warm. She is extremely talented and attentive, which results in invaluable knowledge being imparted on a constant basis and encouraging critique on areas where one is more challenged.

Worth every penny!

Emma is a great and patient acting teacher. While my other teachers rarely dived into my characters' objectives, Emma never fails to work with me on character development, script analysis, projection, breathing, and stage presence. I learned so much from her, I recommend her for everyone.

Introduction to Voice Acting: Books & Resources to Check Out

When it comes to the performing arts, voice acting attracts some of the most fiercely dedicated enthusiasts, despite the relative anonymity compared to acting on stage or on screen. In the old days, radio dramas were the most common inspiration for aspiring voice actors. Today, it’s animation. The key component of voice acting, even more than secrecy and seclusion, is versatility. An in-demand voice actor may be called upon to provide the pipes for a cartoon rabbit in a kid's show on Friday, …
