Classical voice technique is the foundation for all proper singing, and translates to all styles for the best sound, breathing, support and vocal stamina. My education, training, knowledge of the voice and vocal pedagogy, performance and teaching experience will help you to achieve your singing goals, proper care of the voice, and adaptation to all styles of singing.

About Judy
First of all, leave any fear or doubt at the door! We will work together to help you build and develop your voice for whatever your need. Whether you are a beginner just realizing you can sing, a high school student needing to prepare for your college auditions or a professional singer getting ready for an upcoming audition, I can get you where you need to be! My philosophy of voice instruction, developed over twenty-five years of teaching experience, personal vocal study and professional singing, focuses on three primary areas:
- Proper singing technique
- Key principles of voice training
- Breath development as a foundation for singing
- Care of the voice
- Varied and appropriate repertoire
In addition, voice training demands an exceptional ability to connect with the student on a personal level. Vocal in
struction is a highly individualized art. The melding of both the technical and the personal aspects of singing is the dynamic that creates an effective and successful teaching/learning experience. Augmenting my teaching experience, I have been heavily involved in productions with children and young adults, using my musical knowledge, vocal expertise and skill in dance and choreography.

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Vocal Performance from Carnegie Mellon University. I am a professional singer and actress and a member of Equity and SAG-AFTRA.

*** Lesson Details ***
I find that when a student arrives for their lesson, they usually are a bit tense, either because they were stuck in traffic, had a bad day at work, did poorly on a test at school, etc. So we always start with some stretches to loosen up and clear the mind. For voice students, we'll move on to technique building, working with breathing exercises, learning about good support and placement. Next, we'll continue the warm up with a series of varied exercises-think "Do-Re-Mi" from The Sound of Music-and then move on to songs. Your repertoire will be varied. You'll be singing classical music (really helps to build and strengthen the voice), music theater, pop, country and anything you may be interested in singing! That being said, since this is your lesson time, you may need to prepare for an audition, a solo at church or some other performance and may need to devote your entire lesson to that preparation. And that's fine with me. We need to be flexible to help you get the most from your time with me!

Whatever you are studying, always know that my primary goal is your growth as a musician and performer.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Open loft area with a black grand piano. Music. Cabinets. Seating for parents. Street parking available for those who are driving. 5 minute walk to subway. 1 small dog and one cat.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a digital recorder & cassette recorder. I find it is better for my students to have their own voice recorder but I can record for them.

*** Specialties ***
My experience as a performer has been varied, ranging from fronting a rock band in the 80's to cantoring for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to music theater (I am a member of Equity & SAG) to jingle & commercial work. I specialize in music theater and classical but am very comfortable working with pop & rock.

Judy is great! Very flexible! She's a great listener, so it's easy to explain what I think my weaknesses are (she's also good at pointing out things I didn't know I have a problem with) and she knows so many exercises to address them. She's also very patient, kind and positive, so I never feel down or hopeless about what I'm trying to accomplish. Definitely the best teacher I've had so far!

View Full Profile

As a music therapist and professional vocalist, my approach to teaching embraces each person's individual goals, experience, and ability to create a tailor made curriculum that includes: building and developing technique, developing practice skills, self-exploration within the lesson, and help developing creative outside projects. I have a B.S. in Classical Voice and can help you down your path in singing classical music.

About Jillian
I have a Master's degree in Music Therapy, am a nationally board certified music therapist (MT-BC); performer and vocal instructor (Bachelor's in Classical Voice); certified yoga instructor and meditation guide (200+); certified and attuned Reiki master; professional writer and editor.

...I find joy in a lot of places! And often I find these areas of study inform and augment each other.

Music therapy has afforded me a great deal of experience working with children, teens, and adults with special needs including, autism spectrum disorder, Down's syndrome, cerebral palsy, emotional disturbances and developmental delays as well as teens and adults with psychosocial issues, including but not limited to anxiety, depression, grief, ADHD, personality disorders, and more.

I incorporate my experience as a therapist into the educative se
tting.

As a voice teacher, I want to help my students settle comfortably into their own musicality by showing them the building blocks of a solid technique, drawing particularly from the things that helped me grow as a vocalist. I want my students to feel strong in their body, comfortable and relaxed in their breath, and confident in their performance.

I am a professional vocalist in NYC. I perform liturgical and classical music, as well as musical theater repertoire. I participate in professional operas, choral groups and other concert series, as well as professional theater work. Performing gives me a sense of bliss and completeness that is indescribable.

As a certified yoga instructor, I teach in many locations throughout NYC. I was trained at Yoga Haven in Scarsdale, New York with Betsy Kase, and earned a 200-hour certificate in Asana, Pranayama, and Meditation. I went on to complete advanced trainings and now specialize in restorative yoga, prenatal yoga, yin yoga and therapeutics. I offer private yoga instruction and meditation at my home studio, and on occasion in my clients’ homes. My studio comes fully equipped with all yoga props, aromatherapy, and music. Hands-on-assists and personalized sequencing to deepen your experience.

It is a joy to offer Reiki to curious, open clients in need of energy healing. Reiki is a noninvasive energy healing technique totally separate of any religious affiliation and available to anyone. It is a difficult to describe the relaxing, soothing, and deep-healing effects of Reiki to someone who has never experienced.

Please feel free to inquire about any of my services!

*Note: If you don't see a time slot that is suitable to your needs but would like to try a session with me, feel free to register for the Flex Plan, and we will work out week-to-week times!!**

**Note: If you are interested in music therapy, please email me with a bit about yourself (or your loved one) and your personal goals, as well as the qualities you hope to find in your therapist.

Excellent first voice lesson. Jillian is warm, encouraging, and very knowledgeable. I was surprised how many "technical" issues she introduced me to (optimal breathing & how best to practice it at home; appropriate use of falsetto at upper limit of bass voice range, etc.) . Looking forward to continued lessons. (Much better use of what used to be my copay for psychotherapy! I've also joined rehearsals with new Encore-NYC chorale group in Manhattan, for people over 55. Music is giving me a real emotional lift in my retirement.)

Classical singing is my specialty. I am a trained classical singer myself. One of my students of 6 years is now going to Manhattan School of music.

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.

Elizabeth Hood was my voice student for two years as she pursued her Master of Music in Vocal Performance at BGSU from 2013 - 2015. She is very musically astute, loves to be challenged, very skilled with foreign languages, and possesses a wonderful voice! Her voice is stunningly beautiful and easy, especially in the coloratura repertoire. She sang the role of The Queen of the Night from Mozart's Die Zauberflote in Germany last summer and literally brought down the house. She has wonderful command of her instrument and I know her to be an experienced and devoted voice teacher. It's my pleasure to recommend her teaching skills in voice.

I have studied classical voice from the age of 13 with instructors from The Metropolitan Opera. I have sung classical arias in Italian, German, French and Latin.

In our lesson, we will focus on the three pillars of singing: Alignment, breathing, and relaxation. We will work on classical vocal technique through simple exercises. I have exercises for people of all vocal ranges and types. I will adapt my lessons to your specific needs.

We will select the perfect music for you to work on, and I will accompany you on piano. If the music is in a foreign language, I can work on pronunciation with you. If needed, I will record piano tracks for you to practice in between lessons.

Feel free to reach out with any questions. I can't wait to get started!

I will help you sound amazing on all of your favorite songs.

As I always say, if you can learn to speak, you can learn to sing!

Meghan is really welcoming and friendly and is a pleasure to be around. She makes the student feel really comfortable and relaxed. As I entered the studio, I was feeling tense and nervous, but she managed to quickly help me release if not all then most of that tension. I feel like the techniques Meghan has taught me so far are really effective. I know I only have one lesson to go on, but so far I'm feeling very optimistic that Meghan can help me achieve my goals.

It is the most secure, healthiest way to sing that offers the singer the utmost range of expression. I opened a voice studio which I keep small and extremely personalized because I think it is extremely important to pass along this technique to singers of all ages. I hope you will contact me to discuss working together further!"

My name is Shavit Prince. 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 music 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.
