About Nancy
I believe in the extraordinary power of music to communicate, to inspire and, often, to heal. That belief inspires all my work.

My goal is to help you find the power to express express through singing your unique self. It doesn't matter whether your voice is professional quality or whether it's even "good" in the conventional sense. It's YOUR voice. It has its own sound and characteristics, its own particular beauty, and the world needs to hear you!

Whether you want to be a professional or audition for your school musical, NYSSMA, All-State chorus, college and conservatory, or whether you just want to have fun and hit those high notes in the shower, I would love to help you.

I'm a classically trained leading soprano who has had the great good fortune to sing masterpieces with such companies as the Caramoor Music Festival, Glim
merglass Opera and the Aspen Music Festival. I also have undergraduate and master's degrees from Brown University and the Manhattan School of Music.

But don't let the fact that I'm an "opera singer" give you the wrong idea. Yes, strict classical training gives me in-depth understanding of how the human voice works, but I love and teach music of all genres. My students include professional opera singers, yes, but also rock and Broadway-style singers, college and conservatory students, teenagers singing in their school musicals, doing All-State chorus, or preparing for NYSSMA, as well as adults who are taking voice for the love of singing, the fun of the challenge and so they can join their local chorus or sound great on karaoke night.

Above all, the most important qualities I offer as a teacher are the simple human ones: understanding, patience, imagination, kindness, enthusiasm, respectfulness and absolute commitment to helping you meet your vocal goals.

*** Lesson Details ***

I tailor my lessons to each singer's particular interests, goals and challenges. Some students thrive with a highly technical approach; some thrive in a less formal, more supportive environment; most singers do best with an approach that mixes the two. The important thing to know is that you will receive lessons that are specifically tailored to you. There's no single template.

*** Specialties ***

For advanced classical singers I have a great depth of experience and wide knowledge of oratorio, opera, German lied and French, English and American art songs. I also have a specialized background in "performance practice" baroque and classical vocal ornamentation.

For all singers, I am also a superb acting coach!

Spent a lot of time going over my musical background and getting to know me in general. Made an assessment of my vocal ability, potential strengths and weaknesses that seemed accurate to me. Proposed a lesson plan to develop my singing that seemed reasonable and practical given my goals.

About Stephen
Want to belt like Beyonce?
Broadway dreams?

Learn how to write hit songs?
Need help taking your sales presentations to the next level?

Hi, I'm Stephen.

I'm a vocal trainer, acting coach, consultant, and songwriting teacher. My specialty is pop/rock, Broadway/on camera, live presentations/sales, and helping songwriters find their voice, both lyrically and sonically.

Tap Into Your Artistry (TIYA) is the ultimate gym for singing, acting, and songwriting.

Discover the fastest and most efficient way to build, strengthen, and condition your voice. Simple, safe, systematic vocal exercises that embrace a Zen like approach with an athletic mentality.

I'm also an AEA and SAG-AFTRA actor and ASCAP songwriter and producer. If you want to learn more about auditioning, acting in movies, performing musicals/pl
ays on Broadway, writing your own songs, and developing show-biz career strategy, (headshots, meeting agents/managers, etc) I help TIYA members every day achieve their artistic dreams.

MORE INFO:
I have been singing since I was 3, anything and everything from Michael Jackson to Elvis Presley to Luciano Pavarotti. Originally from Colorado, I studied music/theatre, as well as vocal pedagogy at The University of Colorado at Boulder, where I graduated with highest honors. I made my Broadway debut in "The Phantom of the Opera" at age 24. I also performed in "Chess in concert" as a featured rock tenor soloist at the New Amsterdam Theatre on Broadway with Josh Groban. I have understudied and performed lead roles in the first AEA National Tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s "Whistle Down the Wind." Regionally, I have played many lead roles all over the United States in productions including "Les Miserables," "Miss Saigon," "The Wild Party," and "She Loves Me."

As an ASCAP recording artist, currently I am working in the studio with a full production team on my first pop/rock album. I also often sing on demos for producers and write songs for other artists in many different genres.

As a TV/Film actor, most recently I was on set with Marvel's "Luke Cage" on Netflix, and I played the lead role of (Abraham) Lincoln in the digital series pilot, "These Honored Dead." I also have played lead roles in 4 SAG-AFTRA short films, as well as the comedic lead in a SAG-AFTRA Web-series pilot, "Bodega Nights." I was called back for producers as a Series Regular for "The Knick," an episodic series produced and directed by Steven Soderbergh on Cinemax. Check out: stephenhorst.com.

My audition prep will help you master your sides for any playing space; Broadway plays/musicals and especially on camera.

TIYA clients include (aspiring) Broadway performers, Film and TV actors, singer-songwriters, voice-over artists, news anchors, dancers, comedians, CEO's all over the world, as well as karaoke enthusiasts, and songwriting hobbyists.

My TIYA members have performed on television in Smash, Glee, and venues around NYC ranging from The Underground, Le Poisson Rouge, Drom, Cornelia Street Cafe, Arlene’s Grocery, to the Broadway productions of Ghost, Sister Act, Evita, Wicked, West Side Story, South Pacific, The Phantom of the Opera, and Rent to name a few.

*** Lesson Details ***
We will always work on whatever you want.

For Singing, as a vocal technician/trainer I am like going to the gym for your voice. My exercises are safe, simple, and most importantly, I teach you how to practice correctly.

For ACTing, we can explore both the foundation itself with monologues and scenes, as well as the tricks of the trade mastering the camera frame and how to create memorable auditions for TV/Film.

For Songwriting, we can explore the fundamentals of both lyrics and music, as well as catchy hooks, production, and song structure.

You may use my time however you wish (Voice, Acting, Songwriting, or Artistic/Career guidance).

Most vocal sessions will usually be a combination of strengthening/ conditioning exercises, and then exploring/performing a song.

Most ACTing sessions will be theatre monologues, TV/Film sides and/or On camera auditioning craft.

Career consultations usually include how to get an agent, headshots, branding, and marketing to align your artistic dreams with a strategy for success.

Alida was fantastic! She made me feel completely comfortable and took everything step by step. She focused on strengthening my weaknesses by showing me new stretches and techniques every lesson. Alida truly is an amazing teacher. Even though I've only worked with her for five days, Alida has made my technique and main focus. It was the best and I plan (and hope) to work with her again and again!

Alida is one of the best, most caring dance teachers I've ever had. In just a few short lessons she taught me to really believe in myself, boosted my confidence and taught me technique and important combinations for important upcoming auditions. She is very patient and really catered to my needs. She doesn't ever waste any time and I always leave a lesson feeling good and really feeling like I'm getting my moneys worth. Very thankful I found her and would recommend anyone take lessons with her.

Keomi has a lot of positive energy and is sensitive to the the skill levels of her students so she tailors her classes to give just enough challenge while building on students’ strengths and experiences.
Keomi gives a great cardio workout where you really sweat yet the class is so fun that you don’t notice how hard you are working!
You WILL learn many classic hip hop moves which Keo strings together to make a sexy/cool but accessible choreography. You come out of class feeling blissed - both for the vigorous workout and for accomplishing the dance moves! This is a great class for all levels.

About Kevin
In my heart, I'm a huge magic nerd, which is why I love working with students and helping them develop both as technicians and performers. In the five years that I've been teaching lessons, I've helped my students construct routines for their school talent shows, create close-up magic shows for their families, and even pass auditions into reputable magic organizations and shows. While the secrets to magic are all over the internet, I'm very detail oriented, so in lessons, I focus on the "real-work" of magic. I make sure that you don't just learn the general idea of a trick, but you learn the important details about where to put your pinky, how to block angles, where to shift your gaze, and how to create a magical experience. Magic can be frustrating since secrecy is at odds with learning, which is why a teacher is vital for magical develo
pment.

Kevin Kapinos is a Brooklyn, NY based magician and card expert. Upon his moving from Chicago to New York in 2014, he quickly became a regular performer on A Taste of Magic and Monday Night Magic, New York's two highest rated and longest running magic shows. In Chicago he won the Alliance of Chicago Entertainers Close Up Competition, and in 2017 he became the youngest magician to ever win Magician of the Year from the New York Magic Enclave. Aside from his own performances, Kevin is also a consultant and creator for other magicians, and is currently consulting on Joshua Jay's Off-Broadway show "Six Impossible Things".

Hi there!

I’m Laura. I’m a dancer and teacher in NYC. I graduated from Juilliard in 2006, and since then I’ve danced all over the world. I’ve been teaching for over a decade, and I love to help students find another level of facility in their dancing. I teach children through adults, and ballet and modern are my specialties.

My lessons are warm, guided by principles of functional anatomy, and emphasize musicality and sound technique. Depending on your goals, we can also work on flexibility and strength, artistic presence, and audition preparation.

I teach in Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens. I can come to you if you have a large space available, or I can help you find studio space where we can meet.

Looking forward to sharing the pleasure and expressiveness of dance with you!
