I have competitive experience in both art song and opera. Whether you are a total beginner, or have polished material in every romance language and want to add more rep, I will help expand your technique and understanding of classical singing and the voice.
Nicole is available to teach lessons for students of all levels. Beginning her singing career when she was 7, she most recently sang at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, was a winner of the international CS Competition in musical theatre, and is a Chicago F.A.M.E. finalist for Jazz and popular music. Combined with her training and professional experience, Nicole teaches singers to switch gracefully between multiple styles. She practices what she preaches: one night she might be singing Beyoncé, and the next morning she might be singing Handel's Messiah!
Nicole has been a young artist for Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre, Metropolitan International Music Festival, and for Tiroler Opern Programm, under international instructors, including Elizabeth Bachman (from the Metropolitan Opera), Kim Josephson (Metropolitan Opera), Sharon Cheng (Caramoor),
Michael Fennely (Carnegie Hall), Wei-En Hsu (Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra), and Candace Evans (Santa Fe Opera). Nicole earned her Associates in Theatre from Brigham Young University ('12) and went on to acquire her BM in Vocal Performance from Illinois Wesleyan University ('14).

Originally from Israel with Artist Diploma from Cleveland Institute of Music and Bachelor degree in Voice Performance from The Buchmann-Mehtah School of Music in Tel Aviv. I've been enjoying teaching for the past few years, giving private voice lessons and helping my students reaching their goals. I've worked and learned from some of the best singers and teachers out there including Mark Oswald, Ana María Martínez, Barbara Bonney, Mary Schiller and Sandra Lopez. My favorite music to perform is contemporary music and so I've collaborated and premiered pieces by numerous living composers. I also love sin
ging bel-canto and baroque music. New and cool projects are what I love the most! and I hope to inspire for a creative use of your voice.
Our first lesson will be all about getting to know you and your needs. We will start with some breathing and vocal exercises that you can also do on your own in between lessons. It is especially important for me to know what are your expectations and goals for the short and long term. I will tailor our lessons according to your goals and interest.
I believe that with good technique you can be in charge of your own instrument which is crucial for any style of singing. That’s why my prime goal is to help my students build a good base of technique that will allow them to approach any musical genre they'll ever wish to.
In our lessons we will work on the strength and flexibility of the muscular system we need to engage while we are singing. I will give you unique exercises to strengthen the different registers of your voice. We will work on coordination and make sure you have as many tools on hand as possible. I will concentrate in our lessons on the musical genre/s of your choice. We will learn the specific style, the different trends that are out there right now and I will help you develop your unique signature. Looking forward to working with you!
After several years of being out of practice, I was very nervous to start lessons again. Merav has been wonderful... we are bringing my voice back to life! I feel more confident with every lesson. My favorite part is the vocal exercises which really polish all the fine details. I look forward to many more. I'm lucky to have found her!

Merav is truly gifted at explaining difficult concepts. She helped me so much in our last lesson that I had to continue. She’s the best!
Lessons will consist of a warm up and repertoire work! I am a firm believer of a strong foundation for singing, meaning creating a good breath support system, working on consistency in the voice, and doing what makes each singer comfortable. I want everyone to truly enjoy what they sing, and so choosing repertoire will be a very collaborative process! My main goal is for growth in the singer, as a person and as a musician. For more information, give me a call, shoot me an email, or even a text. I look forward to working with you!
Hi! My name is Kate! I am a vocal performance major at Baylor University. In high school, I was a member of the all state choir three times, and I was awarded 1-Superior Solos at state solo and ensemble. Post-high school, I’ve won various awards, such as placing at the NATS conference. I am a member of the Baylor Opera Theater department as well as Chamber Singers and the A Cappella Choir. I am very passionate about what I do and I encourage an attitude of optimism, no matter what the outcome! As for my personal life, I am from Denton (north Texas) and live in Waco currently. I have two sisters and a brother in Denton as well as 4 dogs! My house was always a loud one so I’m used to a little chaos (and controlling it). I’m really easygoing and encouraging. I’m also a huge history nerd and am working on a minor in history. I know a lot abou
t music theory and have some basic piano skills if you’re ever interested in learning any of that! Overall, I’m here to help and encourage!
Ever dreamt of being on Broadway? Ever wanted to study with a Broadway star? Want to work on your technique? Have an audition (or College audition) coming up? Do you just love singing and want to do more of it?

I've been teaching private voice and acting coaching for over 5 years and LOVE seeing my students improve! I am a working singer/actor, and writer/musician in NYC, but I love teaching so much that I do it even while I'm working on projects!
A little bit about me: I graduated from University of Michigan's musical theatre program (one of the top musical theatre programs in the world!) and went straight into playing Ariel in THE LITTLE MERMAID at Chicago Shakespeare theatre, and then directly on to playing the lead in PHANTOM OF THE OPERA on Broadway for several years! I also recently returned from China, where I played Scarlett O'Hara in the musical version of GONE WITH THE WIND!
I've trained in all kinds of different techniques and currently have all different types of students and voices in my s
tudio! I teach all levels and ages, from beginners to professionals, and a wide variety of different of styles (Broadway, opera, pop, singer-songwriter, and many more). Together, we'll find the right techniques for your voice, and the concepts that click for you and make your voice soar! Now, any voice teacher worth their salt will be able to work on your technique with you, BUT in MY studio, we will go farther than that! Not only will your technique improve rapidly, but we will work on telling the story, and performing the song. Two major components that often get forgotten! And most importantly, we'll have fun while doing it!
Whether you're looking to push your audition technique over the top and BOOK that role, or NAIL that college audition, or if you're just looking to have some fun while singing, together we can make it happen!
My daughter dreams of being a professional actor/singer, and Rachel is both the best teacher and role model we could hope for! Rachel helps her with her vocal technique, helps her choose songs that are age appropriate but that enable her to expand her repertoire, and I am absolutely amazed at how much she has learned about acting and character/script analysis. My daughter eagerly does her "Rachel homework" each week :) Rachel also gives her great advice about auditioning, college, and the industry in general. She is truly a wealth of knowledge and talent! We were fortunate to see Rachel perform as Christine Daae in a performance of Phantom of the Opera (my daughter's favorite musical and dream role), and we were absolutely floored by her performance! We are so grateful that our daughter has the opportunity to train with an incredibly talented, enthusiastic artist and teacher. Thank you, Rachel!

Literally couldn’t ask for a better instructor. Honestly, she has been so patient with me since I have anxiety and I’m pretty shy in front of others. She has been nothing but supportive and I really can’t thank her enough for anything.

Rachel is a wonderful teacher! My daughter loves her lessons with Rachel! Rachel is very insightful and observant. She also has a wealth of knowledge on singing and musical theater. My daughter is very serious about having a career in musical theater someday and she really appreciates how compassionate and dedicated Rachel is to making her a better singer. After many talks with my daughter, I can tell you Rachel has a great sense of humor, great knowledge, wisdom, industry insight and she is very caring. You could not find a better teacher! My daughter plans to keep taking lessons from Rachel for a long time. Don't walk, RUN to get your lessons with her! She is that awesome!
