The Best!

Jon helped me do exactly what I'd been trying to do for years: increase vocal stamina, produce a fuller sound, and improve my overall vocal health. He also helped me find great audition rep for my voice. I can't say enough good things about him!

Excellent instructor with an impeccable understanding of vocal technique.

After a ten-year hiatus, I decided to take vocal lessons again. I am amazed at my improvement after just three lessons. Guadalupe is patient, understanding, and very knowledgeable when it comes to vocal technique and how to execute it properly. She can teach vocalists of various styles and backgrounds with great ease because she truly understands the physiological, articulatory, and functional properties of the voice. Guadalupe also has great ears. She suggested I see a throat doctor because a few minutes into my first lesson, she heard what she thought was slight vocal information. The following week her suspicions were medically confirmed and now I am getting the proper course of treatment to eliminate this condition. I am very lucky to have her on my side as I get my voice ready for conservatory level study.

Asuka U. New York, NY

About Asuka

I started my musical training as a pianist at YAMAHA institute at age 4 in Japan. I was selected to enter perfect pitch class. It was designated for students who have perfect pitch and potentials to be professional musicians. I enjoyed playing piano and electric piano and won the 1st prize at Kitakantou Electric Piano Competition hosted by YAMAHA institute. Because of the intensive training, I have been accompanying my students' recitals and performance exams. As much as I enjoyed playing piano, I discovered that I also love singing, so I started to take singing lessons and majored in vocal performance during my college days. Since I have graduated, I have been performing opera professionally. My career highlights include roles as Pamina (Die Zauberflote) with Opera Manhattan ...

I had an audition for a musical and I had to learn a lot of songs to sing. I took singing lessons from Asuka. This was my first time taking singing lessons in NYC so I was a little nervous but she was so friendly, kind, and fun. Asuka plays the piano very well and her teaching skills are extremely professional. She makes you feel very comfortable. And guess what? I got the lead role in Cats!! I couldn't have done it without her help!

I have been taking classes with Asuka for about 10 months and It has been a wonderful experience. I started of as complete beginner & it is amazing to think about how far I've come with Asuka's help. She allowed me to double up and learn both piano and singing in the same lesson and it has been great. The perfect balance useful critiques & helpful encouragement.

Dr. Daniel C. New York, NY

About Dr. Daniel

Dr. C. was most recently described by Tim Page with the Washington Post as a “funny, exuberant and enormously likable” Papageno during Summer Opera Theater’s performance of The Magic Flute. Previously, the Post critiqued Daniel in Opera Theatre of Northern Virginia’s Barber of Seville as a “bright and bouncy” Figaro who delivered his lines with “aplomb.” Daniel has performed as a young artist in the Studio Programs of El Paso Opera, Kentucky Opera and Portland Opera. He has sung the roles of Sharpless in Madama Butterfly, Sid in Albert Herring, Figaro in The Marriage of Figaro, Belcore in L’elisir d’amore, Jupiter in Orphée aux enfers, Dr. Falke in Die Fledermaus, Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Masetto in Don Giovanni, Schaunard in La Boheme, the Clock in L’Enfant et les ...

He is a great teacher and is very patient with someone who had no experience in singing or receiving lessons. My favorite part of each lesson is seeing his genuine excitement when there is improvement or when I hit a note I didn't think I could before. On top of his excellent teaching he is overall a very nice guy and someone who I enjoy talking to before an after each lesson about general things going on in the world and in each other's lives. A great experience overall and I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to be more confident with singing.

To be more clear. The time wasted was on discussing things that were not related t o vocal lessons. Credibility was given to was learned. As a student wanting to grow my vocal abilities I would have liked less chat. Simply wanted more focus on music less focus on anything else. The review is based upon on my personal experience. Dan wasn't a terrible coach, I just wanted just a little more focus on singing.
Cândida Luiza B. New York, NY

About Cândida Luiza

I'm a Brazilian musician around 30 years old, Master in Piano Performance, Professor at a University in Brazil. I love interacting with private classes of piano and Brazilian singing, for kids and adults. I have a big repertoire of classical music, pop, musical theater and all the Brazilian songs. Also, the practice can include some harmony studies, ear training, improvisation and composition. The concept of my methodology is using creativity, technology and good music to make the students play all the songs they want and develop skills. I can teach in English, Portuguese or Spanish.

Candida is the greatest. She is a knowledgeable professional and is very understanding and patient in her approach. She also "keeps it moving" providing feedback continuously with her questions and precise observations ( I am a retired school administrator and school principal ). If you want to learn the piano and have a lot of fun while doing it choose Candida. Of course I won't let you take my instruction time with her away from me.

I've know Sara a long time. She is a joy of a person and a delightful singer. We actually met as kids at Interlochen Arts Camp when we were in middle school. Her passion for singing shined bright that summer. Our paths crossed again when we were at McGill University for our Masters of Music in Vocal Performance. There we had the chance to perform side by side in a number of projects that spanned opera, musical theater, straight theater, and baroque music. Everyday Sara brought a positive attitude and enthusiasm to all she did. I know she will be an awesome teacher for you because I have learned from Sara myself. Watching her perform Susana from the Marriage of Figaro was an absolute lesson in beautiful singing, truthful performance, and shockingly beautiful recitativo.

Sara is a wonderfully fun person. She will always make sure that lessons are productive, and informative, but also fun! She is absolutely amazing at teaching kids of all ages (and kids at heart). I know Sara will be a great teacher for you.

Sara and I did our MMus in Vocal Performance together at McGill University in Montreal, QC. Sara is an amazing colleague, always encouraging, down-to-earth, sincere, and smiling. Her performances are always a pleasure - she has a stunning voice, solid technique, and is extremely versatile (musical theatre, pop, opera.... you name it!). I highly recommend Sara's studio to any young singer who wants a well-rounded vocal training program.
