I have been teaching opera, oratorio and classical music for 10 years.
My teaching goal is to help you develop your technique and musicianship as a singer. My philosophy of teaching classical singing to make you become a self-efficient singer with a solid technique and interpretation.

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 Cio-cio san(Madame Butterfly) with Snob Opera, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Fairy(Falstaff) with Sir B
ryn Terfel with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Liverpool, England, Dorinda(Orlando) with Cantanti Project, Pamina (Die Zauberflöte) with Opera Manhattan Studio, Frasquita (Carmen) with One World Symphony, Zerlina (Don Giovanni) and Clorinda (La Cenerentola) with Capitol Heights Opera, Alice (Le comte Ory) with West Side Opera Society, Adele (Die Fledermaus), Susanna (Le Nozze di Figaro), and Myrrhine (Lysistrata) with Opera Avanti, Gilda (Rigoletto) with Académie Internationale d'Eté de Nice, and The First Spirit (Die Zauberflöte) with the Opera Company of Brooklyn.

My international credits include performances under the direction of Conductor Laurent Pillot at the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Liverpool, England;the Académie Internationale d'Eté de Nice, France; the Daniel Ferro Vocal Program in Chianti,Italy; the International Vocal Arts Institute in Tel Aviv, Israel where I was selected to sing for the Japanese Ambassador.

I made appearances as a soloist at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Symphony Space, Town Hall, and MOMA museum in New York City and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.

As a versatile singer, I was presented as an aspiring opera singer on the website of Maybelline New York. Her voice was featured in short films for the Japanese technology company NEC. I appeared as a soprano soloist for the opera, Jazz and theater collaboration of "TAKE ABITE" by David Antonio Cruz. I also sings Broadway songs and continues her musical theater studies. She is an active recitalist and also performs Oratorio works.

I was also a finalist at the Opera Idol Competition at Lincoln Center in New York City, The Hariclea Darclée Voice Competition in Romania and the Mario Lanza and Elaine Malbin Vocal Competition in New York City. Ms. Uchida was selected as a vocal scholarship recipient at Savannah music festival.

My upcoming engagement includes singing the role of Gilda in Rigoletto and Oscar in Un ballo in maschera in 2018 in New York City.

Besides being an opera singer, I have been teaching piano and voice for 11 years. I would like to share my skills and experience with you. Since I perform often, I can coach you how to perform on stage in addition to building solid technique and languages. Also, I have taught various kinds of music, such as Rock, Broadway musicals, Pop music, so we can work on all kind of music.

I look forward to teaching you soon!

*** Lesson Details ***
My students can expect to improve their skills and start to enjoy music more as we work together.
I believe that learning music is fun and enjoyable. However you also need to be serious and focused.
I can demonstrate various and specific techniques, phrasing, and interpretation and will always coach on how to develop your skills. However, I feel it is important for students to think critically on their own and take the first try at solving a problem themselves. I cannot emphasize enough that primarily it is you who find the ways to improve. Leaning music is a collaboration between teachers and students. I hope that through my lessons, students will become more self-sufficient and confident as musicians.
Let me help you become a better musician.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano (Clavinova), music stand, and desk.

*** Travel Equipment ***
By Subway, the closest station is 23rd street. You can take C, E train(within one block). 1 train(one block), M, F train (2 blocks).

I really love taking voice lessons with Asuka-sensei! It's a lot of fun, and I can tell that she listens very well because she immediately helps me with the areas I struggle with - whenever I come across them in the music. I really appreciate the way she coaches voice exercises, and I think they have immensely helped me get a better tone and sound. Even from the first lesson, I instantly heard a clear difference in my voice! She is seriously talented!!

Includes singing technique, movement and gestures, repertoire selection, musicality and interpretation, diction, pitch memory, sight-singing, etc., with a focus on classical vocal repertoire, according to the student's experience and needs.

About Barbee
Hi! My name is Barbee and I’ve been teaching and singing professionally for over ten years. I love helping my students reach their musical goals, while having fun making music at the same time!

I accept students of all levels and ages 8 and up. Some of my students are working musicians, actors, and voice actors; many are teenagers who aspire to study music and/or theatre in college and become professional performers. And of course many are enthusiastic avocational singers and pianists who simply love music and want to work on their technique in a fun environment.

Some recent student accomplishments include:
*Leading roles in musicals and operas
*International concert tours
*Acceptance to multiple NYC performing arts high schools
*Multiple scholarship offers from universities to study music
*Acceptance to pre-professional traini
ng programs such as Paper Mill Playhouse and AMDA Summer Conservatories

Both voice and piano lessons are based on a foundation of healthy technique while incorporating musicianship skills and encouraging the student to develop their own creativity. I am experienced in teaching many genres and styles including Broadway/musical theater, classical/opera, pop, rock, R&B, country, and folk. I encourage my students to explore new styles and apply good technique to any style they may choose to sing or play.

I love helping my students prepare for auditions. As an active performer myself I have auditioned many, MANY times for different organizations, and I have also been on "the other side of the table" and I know what qualities audition panels are looking for. Let me help you show your best qualities at your audition!

As a member of both NATS (National Association for Teachers of Singing) and ACDA (American Choral Directors Association) I am constantly working to improve my teaching skills by keeping up with the latest pedagogical research. I love sharing new tips and techniques with my students!

I strive to create a lesson environment that is open and honest, where my students are never afraid to ask questions or try something new. I am always happy to explain concepts in a different way and I encourage improvisation and creativity in addition to healthy technique and strong musicianship.

If you have any questions for me, please don’t hesitate to send me a message by clicking “Ask Barbee a Question” at the top of the page.

In-studio equipment: Yamaha P-115 digital piano with 3-pedal unit and bench, music stands, large library of scores and anthologies for repertoire exploration

Please note that you MUST have an acoustic or digital piano with weighted keys for in-home piano lessons. You MUST have a piano or keyboard for in-home voice lessons. If you are looking to purchase an instrument I am happy to provide recommendations.

Please note that students are expected to purchase all music, curriculum, and other materials as appropriate.

I have been literally to 4 youtube teachers and though I have nothing bad to say about any of them, i know that I need a long term teacher that I can see myself growing with as a singer. Our personalities just meshed. She knows how to make one feel comfortable. She is very encouraging to students with zero self confidence like me. I think I have found the teacher I’ve been looking for in Elena! i’m excited to see what she can do to transform my voice. Her resume as well as her reviews( students spoke highly of her character) are what stood out for me out of thousands of teachers online! It is also important that I love to listen to my teacher’s voice and i love her voice😊

I have been helping students discover ease and joy in singing for over ten years, in multiple countries and many different styles. Each journey is different, but I am certain I can help you accomplish your goals. No two voices are alike, and we will work together to discover your particular strengths. Expect to laugh and have a lot of fun along the way!!!

Working with the physical structure of your face and body, we'll uncover ways to free you FROM yourself. Many bad vocal habits are learned through everyday life - together we can identify these to bring you closer to the optimal function of your voice. I will provide a foundation of knowledge for effective breathing and posture, as well as fill your 'toolbox' with many practical methods to alleviate tensions and encourage optimal resonance. As I am an active professional singer, I teach largely through demonstration accompanied by easily understandable technical language aimed to resonate with the student's natural sense memory

I have really enjoyed working with Alex-- He has given me some great tools and guidance for working on technique in a healthy way, and I have left every lesson excited to practice and apply what we work on. He always challenges me in a very constructive manner and makes lessons a safe place to take risks and experiment. As someone who has a degree in voice and has gone through a few teachers, I would definitely recommend him, weather you are a beginner or a more studied singer.

Alex is a brilliant man and a terrific professional singer who has incorporated and consolidated correct and admirable vocal knowledge and has an insight and perception into voices and the root cause of issues and the path to improving a voice. His understanding of the uniqueness of each voice with an underlying bel canto, vocally scientific and yet musically based methodology is outstanding. I would trust Alex with any singer and I know any voice type in any type of repertoire, musical theatre and jazz and even pop,would benefit greatly. he is a deep thinker, but an outgoing and generous individual with great patience. I admire him greatly and I know he is already an outstanding teacher, though his professional career is giving him a great balance, and a good insight into the world each singer is venturing into. A uniquely qualified person.

Not only is Alex a kind, patient, and encouraging teacher, but he also presents valuable technical information in a clear and comprehensible manner. I leave each lesson feeling vocally fresh and with new nuggets of vocal wisdom to think about during the week.

I also feel that I can apply the vocal technique Alex teaches to the many different genres of music that I sing (opera, musical theater, gospel, etc.)

Would highly recommend Alex!! He’s a gem!

I teach a very aggressive classical singing technique known as Belcanto put to modern style music. With this technique you are safe from the vocal damage that most singers tend to fall victim to. Would you let all that time go to waste by having to spend days or even weeks in recovery? This method is for those who want power and efficiency to be able to sing every night without a hick up! It is perfect for beginners don’t let my words intimidate you. This method has helped me truly find confidence within myself and those I teach. Take the bull by the horns! You have nothing to lose!

About Andrew
Hello, thank you for taking the time to read more in depth about my teaching. Before I became a teacher I was unsure of what to do. Just as many of my friends were going off to school I was still stuck. Luckily I found a singing teacher who taught me the proper way to sing and I’ve had a passion for it ever since and that passion grew into teaching my own students and being able to share the gift of singing!

With the method of Belcanto, you will not only develop a powerful voice, increased range and an understanding of the mechanics behind singing. But also how to maintain that power and keep your voice healthy and injury free. There are many voice teachers in New York. However, there are only a handful of good ones that truly wish for you to pursue your dreams and ambitions through music. I was taught by one of those teachers and now I
wish to teach the same way and share this wonderful technique with my own students! If you are injured you waste valuable time you could be using to better you’re voice and obviously no one wants that! Why not give yourself the gift of singing just as I have received? You lose nothing by trying, but you lose everything by not giving yourself the chance to do so!

The method I teach works for modern day music and also classical. It doesn’t confine you to a certain niche like other techniques tend to do. On the contrary it frees your voice to practice certain genres that you would never of thought a classical technique could be applied to!

I look forward to hearing from you all and I will leave you with some advice to take away from all of this. Above all else keep music in your life, whether you learn from me or someone else. No one can ever take that away from you!

My name is Shavit. I am a musician, composer and singer, graduated from The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in NY with honors.

I started teaching music- voice, solfage, ear-training, piano for beginners and the connection between a song and the singer, when I was 16. I was working in a conservatory and every year I had a group of musicians that I use to teach. They came to class together or alone and we worked on what they needed at the time. A few needed help of how to reach a song and how to connect to it, some of them didn't know how to read music and needed me to work with them on the music background, some of them wanted to work on a song they learned in school. I worked with students in all levels.

My students always told me that I have a lot of patience, that I am very clear with my explanations and that they could tell that I love to teach and share music information.

About Shavit
I am a professional musician, singer, composer and recording artist. I graduated from The New School For Jazz with a Bachelors of Music, specifically voice and composition.

I have been teaching music for the last 11 years and have a lot of experience as a private teacher. I specialize in vocal technique, classical music, vocal jazz, piano for beginners and more.

My voice students can expect to improve week after week in their lessons. Having a teacher that listen to you, understands you and helps you is very important for your personal development. As a music teacher I have always been told that I have a lot of patience, I am very clear with my explanations and that I love to teach and share music information.

Outside of the classroom I enjoy my music career in the last 23 years. I had performed and recorded with diverse musi
c groups on stages, festivals and competitions in Spain, England, The Netherlands, Israel and USA, experiences that showed me the power of music to bring people together.

I had appeared as a soloist at the famous Abu-Gosh Renaissance festival with the "Bat-Kol" choir, conducted by Anat Morahg, and performed and recorded a new arrangement by Roger Waters of Pink Floyd's The Wall. I was also a member of the Naked Voice A Capella ensemble, conducted by Tamir Chason.

I would highly recommend taking lessons with Allegra! After a few months in New York, I was looking to work on my voice with someone new and I am so grateful I found Allegra. She helped me to even out my voice registers and understand how my voice works better. We also worked on a lot of audition material and after that I had new confidence in every audition room! She gave me tools and insight that I will carry with me throughout my whole career. Working with her is not only extremely helpful, but so fun! She has such a fun-loving personality and I felt like I had been studying with for years even though I had just met her.

I have been a professional pop singer/recording artist for the past 5-6 years. Having been classically trained, I am a huge proponent of teaching my students classical technique to strengthen their contemporary skills. If you've ever felt like you've struggled to find your "voice", or feel that a few technical issues are preventing you from reaching your full vocal potential, I can help you with that! Also, I specialize in teaching singers vocal technique for a recording studio environment. Learn how to track and edit vocals to create your own demos. This can be helpful whether you want to be able to have great recordings of your singing or if you're looking to develop your own portfolio for your career.

About Anh
I've been professional singer, songwriter and producer for the past 5-6 years whose work has had placements in MTV Europe, BBC Radio1 and Netflix. I graduated from the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami, majoring in Music production and Songwriting with an emphasis on Contemporary Keyboard.

I am passionate in giving my students tools beyond the conventional methods of traditional music lessons. Traditional music lessons often emphasize memorization, regurgitation and limit musicians to only what's "on the page." I believe in tailoring my teaching methods to fit any students visual, auditory and kinesthetic styles of learning. I want every student to have a strong technical foundation so they intentionally break any "rule" they wish.
I believe a music education is simply not complete without an introduction technology i
ntegration. In addition to musical skills, my lessons will include the basics to learning how to record your playing and compositions. Learning how to sing, play piano, and write music is way to better understand yourself and can also be a crucial foundation to a fruitful, creative career. Let me be the guide you to becoming the musician you want to be.

As a singer, I performed around the world with the Broadway tour of Avenue Q, and I've been seen in dozens of musical theatre and Shakespeare productions throughout the U.S. and even in Russia!

By combining my two passions of singing and playing piano, I served as Artist-in-Residence for California Musical Theatre Company, Sacramento Theatre Company, and the cell theatre in NY.

I've been teaching in NYC for over a decade, and my passion is to inspire the next generation of creative people of all ages.

When it comes to music, there is a quote that I love: "Every expert was once a beginner." This quote reflect
s my philosophy on pursuing the arts: that it's never too late to start and that no matter where you are in your musical journey, practice is the key to success. Mastering a skill requires discipline and dedication, and my goal is to help you find joy and inspiration along the way.

My lessons focus on building a strong foundation of technique, which gives you the freedom to explore your creativity and musicality; it is very important for me that my students strive not only for technical precision but also for musical artistry. Together, we will set a practice schedule that you can adhere to regularly, and I'll make sure to send you away with specific instructions each week on how to practice effectively.

With my fun, high-energy approach to teaching, you are guaranteed to enjoy the journey as you take significant steps toward becoming an expert.​ I'm looking forward to meeting you and getting started soon!

I met Laura at Harvard University when we were both doing our MFA degrees in acting. Since our program was not a Musical Theater one and I was not a singer, I started to take private lessons with her to compliment some of the training in singing we were getting there.

Laura is a fantastic singer and actor. She has an incredible ear as well as great knowledge and experience of what makes a singing performance pop. All this makes her an outstanding coach.

Even now after graduation, I am still training with her. Our focus now is on continuing the development of my singing voice. My goal is to reach a level where I have the skill and confidence to audition professionally for musicals, and I know I am in great hands.

Laura is a great music teacher! She was my voice teacher before she went to grad school and I learned a lot from her. Her approach to singing is wonderful (she doesn't only teach you how to sound good but also how to act through songs) and it's really important especially if you are pursuing musical theatre. Not only that, I had so much fun during her lessons! I highly recommend her to be your voice/music teacher! :)
