About Nicholas
I believe in developing the healthiest, best sound possible for every student. I tailor my approach to each person, starting from strengths to help a student understand their own instrument. My technique can help singers of any genre, from child to adult.

My performance biography:
Nicholas C. is in demand with opera companies around the New York area. He was hailed “one of the highlights of the evening” for his portrayal of the Traveler in Britten’s Curlew River with the Church of the Transfiguration. He has premiered roles with Garden State Opera and American Opera Projects. His favorite roles include Silvio, Papageno, Belcore, and Dandini. A veteran of the Dicapo Opera Theatre’s Resident Artist Program, Nicholas has also sung for the Opera Company of Brooklyn, dell’Arte Opera Ensemble, Opera Manhattan Repertory Theatre, and R
egina Opera. Nick holds an Master of Music from the Manhattan School of Music, and a Bachelor of Music from Rutgers University. He is presently enrolled in an Advanced Certificate in Vocal Pedagogy program at New York University, where he is an adjunct professor.

About Amy
I have been a voice, acting, and teacher of creative arts for over 25 years. My background includes ten years of classical training with Maestro Julio Berrocal, as well as vocal training through the Feldekrais 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 I am currently studying for a masters 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 the student discover their individual and unique voice, weather it be through singing, acting or writing. I share with my students tools to gain the ability and con
fidence 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 arena's for most of my adult life. I believe, it is the teachers job to respect each students 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 students individual process of learning. My singing lessons usually start with breathing and relaxation exercises. Vocal exercise come next, then when the student is fully warmed up, we will begin to work on songs. It is important that the student be part of the process of picking material since the more they personally respond to the material the more apt they are to be engaged in their lessons and the more quickly they will learn. After three to six months they will understand the fundamentals of breathing and relaxation and its importance to proper vocal training. They will have begun the process of extending their range and will understand the principles of performance in song.
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 must 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, and blues without hurting the voice as well as method acting instruction.

Amy is a truly incredible teacher and person. All of her students love her and those I've referred have thanked me profusely for the introduction. My daughter has studied voice with Amy for a number of years and after just the first lesson, the improvement in her technique and confidence was remarkable. Amy can bring out the best in anyone's voice. She is encouraging and nurturing and provides the safe and positive relationship anyone would want to have with their teacher.

About Magdalena
My teaching history started after I earned Bachelor Degree in English language. First, I just had a few private students in order to get some extra cash (student life ;)). Then I realized how much happiness it brings to my life and I started working with 3 different private schools. After I obtained my Master Degree in English linguistics I also started working for a private kindergarten as an 'English nanny'.

I believe that one never stops learning a language and this is why I decided to move to the USA to get familiarize with the teaching approaches and methodology as well as to live the language and its culture. Being a teacher for me is not only sharing my knowledge about the language but also gaining the knowledge my students are willing to give me. I was surprised myself how much I knew about the interests and mortgages when I was
a tutor in Deutsche Bank in Warsaw :)

I have 4 year experience as a ELT teacher. My student were both children and adults and I always found a common ground with every one of them. Since I mastered in English linguistics, definitely grammar and speaking (pronunciation) are my favorite areas of the language.

About Mariana
I'm currently serving as an Americorps Vista volunteer at the New York Immigration Coalition to fight poverty among minority groups in the city. I just graduated as a magna cum laude from CUNY Hunter College with a Bachelor's of Arts in Anthropology and Spanish.

I have always loved teaching my native tongue to people so they can be part of a rich culture and enjoy the profound and vast literature that comes with it. I believe in the joy of communicating with others and be able to see the world in different colors and perspectives.

I began teaching Spanish to friends at my college and that's how my journey with teaching the language as a freelancer began. My approach focuses on the conversational aspect with fun and educational icebreakers as well as grammar and structure.

I love playing the ukulele, painting in watercolor, reading sh
ort novels, and finding new yummy spots in NYC during the weekends.

About Danyu
Hi future students, my name is Danyu. I.have a bachelor degree in English and I recently graduated from NYU and had my master degree in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).

I started my teaching career by volunteering in a educationally undeserved school in Beijing. Until recently, I gained more experiences from teaching in public schools in NYC.

I can be a nerd sometimes but I'm fun and easygoing. I love New York City and I love delivering my knowledge in English language to people in need. I hope you can join me to explore English as a second language and discover NYC so that you are able to overcome difficulties academically and able to be a cool New Yorker.
