My first session with Stephen was both technically and emotionally rewarding. He was both able to pass-on his musical expertise (his tips) and patiently encouraging my understanding of vocal technique.

I love music and especially singing, but I never knew how to sing correctly. Stephen has taught me how to use my voice, and sing properly to a tune. He is very proactive and has a really good ear, so don't expect him to not hear when you are making a mistake or improperly using your voice on a particular note. I have confidently began to sing songs I thought I would not sing, and have surprised myself astoundingly. If your dream is to sing well, then this is definitely the instructor for you!

About Barbara
I graduated with my Bachelors in Music and Psychology with a focus on opera voice in 2009. In my performance program I really grew as a vocalist and learned how to overcome my own obstacles and improve my vocal technique for myself. I feel confident now in sharing my experience and my education with my students so they are able to really grow and improve as well. I started professionally and privately studying vocal technique when I was 17 and prior to that I was performing musical theater in school and in community performance groups. I really found my passion in classical repertoire and studied with numerous private teachers who were professional opera singers such as, Carol Yahr, Maria Fattore, and Annelise Von Georken. Wanting to share my passion for music and help others reach their full potential as a singer I went back for my m
asters program in music education at Hofstra University where I am currently finishing up my degree. Hofstra has really broadened my knowledge of teaching styles and pedagogies. I am also currently student teaching in public schools as well so I am teaching young adults and young children everyday and I know how to accommodate for different learning styles and help all children.

*** Lesson Details ***
I really want my students to enjoy singing and find a passion in performing. I truly believe that singing should be a combination of passion and also technique. My lessons will focus on the fundamentals of singing in order to provide healthy vocal technique and a beautiful tone. It is extremely important in all genres for singing to have support, be able to use breath properly and have an understanding how of use the voice as an instrument properly to achieve a beautiful tone. After a few I would like students to not only have improved their sound and have songs they are confident in performing, but an understanding of how to read music and sight singing at the level of the student. I also focus on performance and making sure that my students not only sound beautiful and gain the proper vocal technique but that they perform to the public and have great stage presence. Being able to convey meaning and emotion to a song while performing is equally as important as singing properly. I also love to help students be creative and write and create their owns songs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room w/ piano seating for parents. I also recommend students bring their own recording device to record their vocal lessons. An iPhone or smart phone works just fine.

*** Specialties ***
I really enjoy and teaching classical music and opera voice. Although I teach all different styles and genres, from broadway to pop, to classical, and jazz. It is extremely important to have great breathe support and ability to create resonance in order to have a beautiful legato tone. With piano I teach beginners how to read music, play in tempo and basic right hand and left hand coordination.

I love opera and I love to teach it. I know the repertoire intimately. I am a retired opera singer myself and my students do really well with me!

About Rebecca
I specialize in teaching technique. Through the correct, high placement of vowels and deep breath support I can teach my students to have free, powerful and controlled voices. I teach all genres but I specialize in opera. I was an opera singer myself and I particularly enjoy preparing students for applying to schools to be a voice performance major. I have a student now who is applying to all the top music schools.

About Angela
I am a freelance classical singer in the NYC area. I have a Bachelors and Masters degree in Vocal Performance and a minor in English Literature. I've been teaching off and on for the past few years and have enjoyed helping students better understand classical music and improve their vocal technique. I am also happy to teach musical theater pieces, though it would be through a classical background as I believe the technique it calls for sets a great foundation for performance in any other genre. I work to help students find a freedom and ease in their vocal function that allows the voice to work to its full potential.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide music, unless students have pieces of their own they'd like to work on. Students must provide piano.

*** Specialties ***
I feel am best suited to teach female singers, as I
am one and have a better understanding of the instrument. I am qualified to teach music in English, French, Italian and German.

View Full Profile

With over 10 years of teaching and performance experience, I can help you reach your goals. My teaching is very much influenced by my certification in Somatic Voicework™ The Lovetri Method. It is a body-based method of vocal training which is based upon voice science and medicine, traditional classical training, and various bodywork approaches. If you're struggling in a particular area of your voice, I can help you work through those issues.

About Cindy
Regardless of where your musical interests lie, I can help you improve your skills! Growing up, I fell in love with playing and singing all styles of music! I've delved into classical, jazz, R&B, soul, gospel, reggae, soca, pop and musical theater, and I can teach you how to apply proper technique to the genre(s) of your choice!

If you're looking to become a better singer, we will focus on finding the beauty and power in your voice in a healthy manner. Vocal health is an important component of everything I teach, and I work to eliminate strain and vocal fatigue. We will work on balancing your vocal registers to give you control over the troublesome middle range. With a healthy foundation in place, we will fine tune your skills by addressing pitch accuracy, vocal control, phrasing, dynamics, expression and microphone technique.

If y
ou're interested in playing piano, you will learn how to read music and/or play by ear. You'll learn scales, chords, arpeggios, sight-reading, and basic music theory. For singers who are interested in piano, I've developed a great technique to teach you how to accompany yourself.

For songwriters, I can help you write stronger lyrics and set them to music appropriately.

In general, I'm pretty upbeat and fun. However, I expect you to practice. When you practice, you hear and feel the difference and everyone's happy! If you don't practice, you'll remain in the same place, and it's frustrating for everyone. :( Please, please, please practice! :)

My degree in music education and wide range of experience allows me to accommodate different learning styles. I have a knack for breaking down seemingly difficult or mysterious concepts in a way that's easy to understand. I also understand the demands of being a full time musician, and can offer advice to students who are interested in going that route.

I would love to help you enhance your enjoyment of music by making it fun and easy for you to learn!

When I first started taking singing lessons, I thought there was no way I could really ever be able to sing. Cindy has helped me to do things that I didn't think possible - sing in key, sing different notes, and relax and enjoy it. I would give her 6 stars if I could!

Cindy is no doubt the ONE when it comes to piano and voice lessons. I have had piano and vocal lessons with other previous instructors in the past, but often felt discouraged, misunderstood and frustrated. However, Cindy literally brought my passion for piano and singing back to life! She's extremely knowledgeable and passionate in her expertise, and she's FUN! I look forward to each and every lesson. I have been taking lessons with Cindy for almost a year now, it's the best decision I have made, and looking forward to many more. I've seen the improvement in both my piano and singing techniques, and learned so much. She is an inspiration to work with and committed to helping you achieve your goals as long as you put in the work and practice. Cindy is invested in your results and growth, once you start you can't stop.

Hi future students!!!

We all know to be an opera singer is hard work and very difficult. However, it is not impossible. Technique is key and I am here to help you build technique in order for you to reach your goal. Also, we will have fun learning and singing because learning is fun! We will study breath support, and breath control, as well mouth positions, forward sound, the larynx and how to keep and open throat. I will also teach you and help you strengthen your registers as well as blend them.

About Deborah
I have so many different things I teach. If you are looking for a voice teacher, I definitely can be of help. I have been singing all of my life. I sing in many different genres like pop, gospel, R&B, and classical. I can even help if you want to be an opera singer, as I am studying to be one myself at the Aaron Copland of Music. First things we would start to do is learn how to breathe. After the student understands good breath, then we will apply it to actual singing.

I also teach Italian, and have taught the language for 3 years in a private school. I lived in Italy for a while and I just love the language. If anyone needs a tutor, I can help!

I also teach art history, and art as far as drawing and painting. So if any parent wants for their child learn how to express themselves through painting or drawing, I can do that as well!!


I love to do all of these things, as I have a great passion for them! I hope I can inspire someone else.

My focus in lessons is on healthy vocal production with an emphasis on physiology. Because singing is very technical I want my students to feel comfortable in their understanding of their instrument. In this way, during performance situations they are able to let their musicality and acting shine without being hindered by vocal difficulty. Depending on the students need diction, music theory, and sight singing will be addressed.

Natalie was educated in voice performance at the College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) where she received her BM in 2011 and MM in 2013.

About Amanda
I am a professionally trained opera/classical singer, and I LOVE to teach. I have more than 5 years of teaching experience working with students of all ages and levels in both New York and Los Angeles. I love bringing the gift of music to everyone, and truly believe that music heals and brings happiness to all who partake in their own musical journey. I also bring with me 5 years of experience working for an opera company in Los Angeles where I managed the education and community engagement department. Through this opportunity I was able to work with diverse groups of students to teach them about music.

My teaching technique focuses on giving my students the proper tools and techniques that they need in order to build their instrument and preserve their voice for longevity. I have a Bachelors degree in Music: Voice Performance and a Ma
sters degree in Voice Performance and Pedagogy. I have also taken several seminars on vocal health and development.

In addition to singing I also teach beginning to intermediate piano lessons. I have been playing the piano for many years. In fact it was my first instrument! I find that the piano is a wonderful way for students of all ages to really understand music as a language while learning an instrument simultaneously. I have a wonderful method and book that I use which I have found to be incredibly effective. I also teach and work with my students on their aural skills, pitch development and recall, music theory, and diction.

I am excited to meet you future student! Please don't hesitate to drop me a line. I look forward to having you in my studio!
Best on your musical journey -Amanda

My son Alexander was in 6th grade when he began to receive lessons from Amanda. She was able to get my son ready within 3 months for his audition to the Orange County School of the Arts. Thanks to her dedication and professionalism and my son's perseverance, he was accepted to the Classical Voice conservatory. She continued visiting our home on a weekly basis for four years. Amanda was always prepared with lessons which she pulled from music books that were appropriate for his age. She tailored his singing lessons in conjunction with his conservatory expectations. When Alexander was in 9th grade, she provided piano lessons as well. With piano lessons, he was able to practice his songs with more feasibility. It is with great admiration and respect that I highly recommend Amanda as a classical voice and piano teacher for she is an example of great talent and inspiration for the youth.

Amanda is not just an outstandingly talented singer (seriously) but also a gifted and inspiring teacher. As a beginner, I had no idea what to expect from my lessons, but she blew me away with her warm, fun, professional approach to singing. Her magic is that she is equally a scientist and an artist. She is a singing expert at the highest level, and she knows how to guide your technique with laser-focused, detailed feedback. When she is explaining abstract concepts, she does a marvelous job of breaking them down into understandable and concrete tasks for practice. Most importantly, she prioritizes healthy technique and you can trust her to protect the longevity of your voice. After singing with her for a little over a year, for the first time I have discovered my voice's natural, free vibrato, and I truly enjoy hearing what my own recorded voice sounds like. Amanda is the best. She will point you to the stars and help you reach for them. Call her!
