Learn proper and healthy vocal technique, and have your lesson catered to your goals. Many voice students come with various goals and interests in music. As a seasoned and versatile singer and educator, I ensure that all my students' goals are met and that their joy for music increases through each lesson.

In high school, she graduated as the valedictorian of the Orange County High School of the Arts where she majored in Musical Theater. In addition the school's conservatory program, Jaclyn continued to excel her piano studies after school and during the weekends. She was selected to perform in numerous Honors Recitals and Festivals under the Music Teacher's Association's Certificate of Merit in the Los Angeles and Orange County area.

Jaclyn both studied and graduated Cum Laude from California State University, Long Beach

Students of all ages are encouraged to learn and reap the benefits of music education." - Jaclyn, Voice & Piano Teacher.

Testimonials:
"My students really look forward to each lesson. I'm enthusiastic, patient, and I always motivate my students to believe in themselves. My students thoroughly enjoy learning music, and I ensure that each student progresses every week. " - Angela, Parent of Andrew (11 years old) and Julianne (9 years old).

"I had a great great learning experience with Jaclyn! She is creative, patient, fun, like to challenge - it has made my piano learning journey so much fun! Till date, I have about 1 year learning experience with her - my skill has improved tremendously! I still remember my first lesson was "where is Middle C note/key?" Today, I can play a Minuet music piece! All great work and encouragement from Jaclyn.

The greatest thing that I learnt from Jaclyn - you can be great pianist to read music sheet, but that doesn't means that you can play a piece of good music. Almost every music piece, she taught it with a different style, phrasing and expressions! Every lesson is a new world to explore and she made it so enjoyable." Denise (Age 30)

Weehawken, NJ

View Full Profile

I have been a professional singer for most of my adult life. I love teaching and sharing my knowledge with students as they discover ways towards self-expression through the voice.

About Amy
I have been a voice, acting, and teacher of creative arts for over 25 years. My background includes ten years of classical voice training with Maestro Julio Berrocal, as well as vocal training through the Feldenkrais approach with Marcy Lindhiemer. In acting, I have studied with renowned Stanislavsky scholar Sonia Moore and Master acting teacher of the Strasberg Method, Marcia Haufrecht. I received a B.A. For comparative literature and creative writing at the State University of New York at Purchase and have recently completed my Master's degree in social work at Walden University.
I believe, within all of us, Is the ability to express something distinctive and original. I work to help students discover their unique voice, whether it be through singing, acting, or writing. I share with my students an array of tools to gain the ability
and confidence to achieve their goals. I empathize deeply with the challenges students may face when pursuing a life in the creative and performing arts, having worked professionally in those areas for most of my adult life. I believe it is the teacher's job to respect each student's individual process of learning.
My students have gone on to become recording artists, Broadway performers, movie actors, Blues and cabaret artists, and published writers.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice
I am an empathetic teacher, sensitive to the student's individual process of learning. My singing lessons usually start with breathing and relaxation exercises. Vocal technique exercises come next. When the student is fully warmed up, we will begin to work on songs. It is important that students be a part of the process of picking material since the more personally they respond to the material the more apt they are to become engaged in their lessons. After three to six months beginning students will have gained an understanding of the fundamentals of breathing, relaxation, and basic performance skills. With more advanced students the focus will be on range extension and the on-going development of vocal style through song interpretation and performance related exercises.
Acting
As an acting teacher and coach, I tailor my classes to the needs of each student. I utilize improvisatory and sensory techniques to help unleash spontaneity. I also encourage the students to use their personal experiences as a way to access a full range of emotions. I enjoy working with the student on script analysis, so as to discover the underlying motivations of the character the student is working on.
Creative and Lyric Writing
I use prompts as a way to get the student writing. Often, I will ask the student to write for stretches of time without editing themselves. It is important to unleash imagination before beginning the process of editing. Many times it is the unexpected that is the most compelling.

*** Studio Equipment ***
home- 10 minutes away from Manhattan with piano, seating for parents
-practice studio seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a piano, cd/mp3 player and an large library of songbooks to work from. The student should bring sheet music of songs they want to work on and a recording device.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching how to sing rock, pop, musical theater, jazz, cabaret, and blues without hurting the voice as well as method acting instruction.

learning how to use your voice, range, and style for both male and female. Sing songs and how to work on key and pitch.

About Vincent
Dr. Vince is a musician, guitarist, songwriter, vocalist, and a producer.
Vince has three cds out with one in Germany.
Dr. Vince has two master degrees one in music and in education with a PhD in Music
Vince was produced by" Badfingers" Joey Molland, which was the Beatles first band signed to Apple Records. My band VitalpointRocks was also recorded by Ron Thal aka Bumblefoot and is now playing guitar for Guns and Roses I also performed with the Del Vikings, Ben E. King, and many local groups
Vince wrote two instructional books one for guitar and vocal and is currently writing a book he also plans to record more music.

*** Lesson Details ***
Through my methods of teaching a student could excel, learn, and become an accomplish musician at any age. I work within the age group that is, to teach in the level of that student in
stead of above them.I have help students to get into bands and become songwriters. I show students how to practice within 15 minutes and become productive in ideas and have fun in the process all ages could have fun. I am one of those individuals who love to teach music and my reward is when you learn and feel good about your studies in the instrument so my last words to conclude in all of this is “have fun and enjoy the beauty of music.”

I am emphatic about learning music I cover all the grounds in music such as theory the basics to harmony and my favorite songwriting and get you to play what you like
I have worked with all ages and the one thing I know in the beginning is to make that student feel comfortable and to get the attention from that student so they can learn, play, and most importantly have fun with it.
I show students time management in their studies how to practice in such a little time I plan each lesson and if the lesson is not right for that day I quickly go into a second plan. I can always detect if the plan does not go well because there is one thing a teacher must know and that is to teach in the level of the student and not beyond so they can succeed properly and move on to the next level.

*** Studio Equipment ***

About Kathryn Z.

Profile_305481_fy5msl8j8j57ck2mmzr6
New York, NY
View Full Profile

All levels of voice are taught, geared to whatever is your musical specialty but using a technique stemming from classical voice.

About Kathryn
Kathy believes that variety is the spice of not only life, but also music. Raised singing folk music with a musical family (think accordions, guitars and lots of vocal harmonies), she learned guitar and piano at an early age, but began singing even earlier.

Her quest to give the world the best her vocal cords could offer led her to obtain an undergraduate degree in vocal performance from the University of Nebraska (where she graduated honorable mention, named with the vocal department's Outstanding Senior in Music award, and also obtained a minor in theatre) and a master's degree in music from the Cleveland Institute of Music. Both of these degrees emphasized classical singing technique, and through this study Kathy gained a solid foundation for her musical craft.

Once out of school, Kathy then sought to begin creating HER music
and HER sound, a challenge which continues to manifest itself even today in a variety of ways. Kathy is now a singer/songwriter and performs often with her own band in which she sings, plays guitar, writes her own songs and arranges them for intricate backup harmonies and multiple instrumentation. A variety of influences are apparent in her music, including the musical genres of folk, pop, jazz, and yes, even hip hop. She has recorded three albums of her music and all have been received to critical acclaim.

She sings as a professional cantor at St. John the Baptist Church in Manhattan, and teaches private voice, guitar and piano lessons throughout the city of New York. She served for a time as the general music teacher for St. Dominic's School in the Bronx, where she was responsible for Pre-K through 8th grade music classes, and, true to form, she is often called upon in a multitude of situations to perform in a variety of musical genres. She is always pleased with the ever-changing musical scenery around her.

*** Lesson Details ***
A lesson with Kathy equals half of the allotted time being used to learn good technique (i.e., learning healthy vocal habits, singing vocalizes, learning to read music, playing scales, etc.) and the other half of the time singing and playing repertoire. The repertoire includes both pieces chosen by Kathy (always approved by the student) which excite and inspire the student's particular musical tastes while providing a new challenge in technique to be conquered, and also pieces brought in by the student; for example, if a student is working on music for a specific performance, etc., or if they just really like a piece and want to learn how to play or sing it, Kathy is always ready and willing to lend a hand and an ear!

Vocally, Kathy believes good basic technique is the same for every genre of music. Therefore, great emphasis is placed on learning to breathe and support your sound correctly as well as maintain good posture, rid your body of unwanted tensions, etc.; musical styles beyond that basic technique change only in small stylistic ways, and Kathy is knowledgeable in quiet a variety of most musical styles.

With guitar, Kathy focuses on learning to read and play musical notation and chords without using guitar tablature. Again, a variety of musical styles are used for instruction, including everything from classical to punk!

And with piano, Kathy focuses on learning to read and play musical notation as well as mastering scales and chord progressions, inversions, etc. She loves opportunities to combine voice lessons with guitar lessons, or voice lessons with piano lessons, as one instrument feeds into the other in interesting and helpful ways.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I travel with my travel guitar and music for lessons. I expect guitar students to have their own guitar, and piano or voice students to have some sort of keyboard, even a small one.

*** Specialties ***
all-levels voice, beginning guitar, beginning piano
I specialize in a classical voice method, which I believe is a good foundation for all styles of singing. I have experience with classical singing, music theatre (I have a minor from my undergraduate education in Theatre) and folk. I'm an experienced songwriter and am able to guide students in that area.

I teach notes and chords for my guitar students. I don't teach guitar tablature; instead, I teach basic guitar music on the staff.

Also, I teach beginning piano, including basic music theory, note spelling, etc.

A NOTE TO THE STUDENT
I am so glad that you are looking into finding a voice teacher who fits your unique style, personality, and being. I love teaching voice. I love seeing my students go from where they are when they first arrive in my studio to auditioning with confidence, or singing in Broadway shows and bands, recording albums, and participating in open mics with ease and grace. It is my sincere hope to create a singer in every family! Maybe if we have a singer in every family, there will be less violence in our sometimes turbulent world. If it is your dream to be a singer, I encourage you to pursue it with abandon!

Every lesson is for YOU. The time we spend together is time for you to explore your voice, your goals, and desires within music. I specialize in beginner/intermediate singers looking to expand their voice, repertoire, and love of singing. No lesson will be the same, and every lesson will be a shared experience in which we learn how your voice works, and how it feels.

Lessons include, but are not limited too, repertoire exploration, music theory, range expansion, vocal pedagogy/vocal anatomy, performance preparation, character coaching .....and much more.

About Shelley
I'm a professional singer/teacher residing in New York City with degrees from Indiana State University, and New York University with a specialization in Classical Art Song, Musical Theatre Repertoire, and Vocal Pedagogy.

Every lesson is about YOU. So each week we will take a look at your goals for the lesson, whether you are preparing for college auditions, school talents shows, a desire to work with music theory, or piano skills, this is your opportunity to explore. Everything is possible.

As a professional singer myself, I am constantly auditioning on broadway, off-broadway, and for smaller local and regional theater opportunities. I believe that as a teacher I have to continue to be in the field and learning as the industry continues to change. I have to be aware of the opportunities in this business. I have been hired by pr
ofessional opera and musical theatre companies, in additional to large choral works as a soloist, and have a private studio in Washington Heights.

Prior to NYC I taught middle school choir for 200+ students, of which I received teacher of the year in 2012. I also still hold a valid teaching license in the state of Indiana and currently applying toward my NYS teaching certification.

I look forward to hearing your beautiful voice and helping you to embrace music. Feel free to check out my website for any further information!

View Full Profile

A NYC resident for the last 8 years, I have a strong background in both performing and educating and it is my strong belief that teachers who are "in the biz" are extremely valuable. Specializing in Musical Theatre and serving as an actor, music director, producer, and director over the years, I have a unique perspective of the industry and all it takes to make you ready for your next audition, concert, performance, etc. I hold a Bachelors of Music from NYU Steinhardt, where I had a strong classical training in Vocal Performance - all the while, making sure that beautiful, healthy singing is married to the text and emotional state of the character. While voice lessons with me are largely dedicated to developing a strong vocal technique, I will always come back to what songs mean on a deeper, more emotional level, as I believe that in so much of the material in the MT lexicon is written in such a way that the music and words and context of a song all feed and inform each other. ...

About Zack
Hi All! I am a New York based professional actor, music director, producer, and the co-artistic director of a professional theatre company housed here in the city. I hold credits from the New York Stage and regionally and graduated with honors from NYU with a degree in Vocal Performance with an Emphasis in Music Theatre. Over the years, I have taught students of all ages and I specialize in utilizing classical vocal technique and healthy singing habits to inform what is at the heart of a song; that is, how in each song, there is a unique marriage between the words and the notes. Additionally, having been cast in leading roles in musicals with pop, rock, and hip/hop influenced scores myself, I believe that a strong background in classic vocal exercise truly helps to keep your voice healthy and strong regardless of the style of the music -
the industry is full of artists who manage to negotiate these differing styles with simple tricks and remembering the basics in regards to air flow, resonance, and diction. In addition to vocal instruction, I also offer beginner/intermediate saxophone lessons, beginner piano, and beginner/intermediate/advanced music theory and music-reading. Thank you for reading and I hope to talk to you soon!
