About Bridget
I have been a professional voice, music theory and piano teacher for the last ten years, and have loved every minute of it. I am originally from Canada, and went to the University of Windsor to study vocal performance. I was given an opportunity to the study principals of classical singing and musical theater. From there, I began to work as a featured classical soloist and choral singer throughout Canada. I came to New York to continue my studies, and earned a Master of Music degree in Classical Voice from the Manhattan School of Music.

I believe that singing lessons should be a lot of fun. With good technique, my students and I can team up to accomplish anything from singing classical songs and even some opera arias to popular songs and musical theater. It is my goal to help you discover your own personal voice, and build confidence
in your individual gifts. My students have gone on to study voice in college and university, perform in musical theater, sing in rock bands, children and adult choirs and even win a competition or two. I love hearing my students perform, and feel that an opportunity to sing in front of others builds confidence and ability. I take pride in arranging recitals for my students who would like this opportunity.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons with always begin with warm ups and technique. We'll also focus on an important principal topic, such as breath and support, vowel placement or expression. We'll use some exercises that I have already, or perhaps a new one just for your needs (once I get to know your voice) to help you achieve our goals. We'll then work on 1-2 songs. You'll probably have picked one, and I may have picked one. The concept that we worked on in our technique session will be applied directly to the songs you are working on. You can learn so many different things in each song, we may practice your songs, using a different goal in several different lessons.
All of my students get a chance to perform in occasional "vocal class" settings, where you can sing your favorite songs for one another, in a fun, laid back environment. All students are welcome to participate in an annual recital for their family and friends too! Piano lessons are designed to suit your needs. We can work on the basics for classical playing, read chords, jazz improv and more.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have my own music studio set up in my apartment. On teaching days, my living room can be a comfortable waiting room for parents/guardians. You are all most welcome to relax, have a cup of tea or coffee and listen to our lessons. I do ask that you do not sit inside the studio (at least not after the first lesson) as this can be distracting for your child. My studio is equipped with a music stand, upright piano, work sheets for theory, pencils and crayons. I also have a full Broadway and classical music library that students can borrow from, CD/DVD's that can be borrowed, and a New Grove Reference set.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring some music, until we assess the student's needs, then they may buy some books, while I provide the rest. I bring theory worksheets, stickers, pencils etc. If a student would like to sing/play a particular song (Broadway/pop etc) I may have it in my music library.If I do not, the student will need to purchase the music they would like to sing. The student would need a keyboard/piano in their home should I travel. I have a piano in my home.

*** Specialties ***
Classical singing, Musical Theater, Jazz, music for young children, pop singing, audition preparation, beginning music for adults.

Hello! I'm a recent graduate of Brown University with honors in Italian Studies and Performance Studies. Having dedicated the last four years to studying Italian language, literature, history, and culture, I decided to share my knowledge with other Italian enthusiasts out there. I tutor Italian students of all levels and am happy to teach grammar, work on reading comprehension and writing, give conversation practice, and share knowledge of the culture and its rich literary and artistic traditions! During college, I had opportunities to live in Florence, Rome, and Sicily, and in my senior year I became a tutor of Italian for the dean of the college.

About Steven
Since 1998, I have taught students of all ages in multiple genres. Many of my alumni have gone on to become voice and music theatre majors at some of the most prestigious programs in the USA, as well as becoming professional performing and recording artists all around the world, so I have gone online so that I can reach out to my students anywhere on Earth!

Online lessons allow us to work together without having to waste time traveling to my studio, not to mention wasting money on transit, tolls, gas or parking. Additionally, it has allowed me to offer my lessons for considerably less than I did "in-person." In addition to singing lessons, I've also worked with online students on monologues, on-camera instructional videos and voiceovers.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

My daughter has expressed a love for music and singing from a very early age. As a parent, I thought she had a beautiful voice and that was confirmed by a good friend of mine who recommended me to Steven. I started Olivia with Steven when she was 9 years old. Through his instruction and guidance her voice has grown tremendously. She was awarded a major role as a 5th grader in her school play and then went on to be the lead as a 6th and 7th grader. She was the youngest student in the history of the school to earn a lead role.

Olivia also auditioned for the Paper Mill Playhouse Summer Conservatory and was accepted for their August Intensive program. I have no doubt that it was Steven's teaching that helped her with her audition that gained her acceptance.

Olivia is now 12 and as a young person, needs to learn how to interpret a song so that she can perform it well. Steven takes the time to teach the MEANING of the words and explains the story that is trying to be told. This was very important for Olivia to learn.

I highly recommend working with Steven. He is a fabulous teacher with a lot of knowledge and insight.

About Phillip
I think we live in a great time to be making music as more and more genre-bending art takes center stage. My lessons reflect this. I have extensive training in classical music and jazz as a performer, composer, and improviser. I want to give lessons that are exciting to you, but also bring in new perspectives from overlapping musical practices. For example, I will create graphic-score compositions with your seven-year-old beginner piano student, I will improvise with a high school aged composition student, and I will assign some classical repertoire to an adult jazz student. I will always teach with the aim of providing technical knowledge in service of your artistic goals, as my own best mentors have done.

My own studies have taken me from Harvard (BA in English, where I also studied with jazz pianist Vijay Iyer) to London (Master's in
Composition from The Guildhall School of Music) and back to Boston (Master's in Jazz Performance from The New England Conservatory). I play in a number of bands that play improvised music. I also have many composition projects and extensive training in classical piano repertoire. I split my time between the scenes in New York and Boston.

I hope I can be of use to you to teach classical piano, improvisation, music theory, songwriting, composition, or jazz vocabulary!

About Ra
Hola!

My name is Ra. I am a dancer, poet, and educator. I specialize in teaching conversational Spanish, Latin Dance, and Spoken Word Poetry. I am a native Spanish speaker. Originally from Puerto Rico, I grew up between PR and New York City. I graduated from The New School University and lived abroad several years teaching language in a Bilingual Schools. I began my dance studies back home in Puerto Rico with traditional Boricua roots music like Bomba y Plena. I now work for several dance companies, perform spoken word poetry, and teach dance/poetry/spanish to children and adults. As a Teaching Artist I aim to help my students become more comfortable whether it's with learning Spanish or learning to dance Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, or Flamenco.

I believe learning new things opens up a whole new world to us. With me you will get to
a point where you feel comfortable speaking Spanish or Dancing, or writing poetry which is the ultimate goal right?! :-)

I started teaching while was doing my Masters in economics, as Teaching Assistant for Intermediate Macroeconomics course. 3 years later I was an author and lecturer of Macroeconomics course for undergrads. I have a great experience of working not only with large auditory but also with small groups. All years of my teaching career I was giving private lessons in Economics for High school, Microeconomics and Macroeconomics for undergraduates so I have a huge library for problems, approaches for explanation and enough knowledge to bring the academic problem to the real world.

Yulia was my first economics teacher at school and I can best summarize my experience as her student in several words: she determined my future career path. I believe it’s her inspiration and curiosity about macroeconomics, her talent to communicate complicated econ world issues to students in an easy and fascinating manner that lead me to go to one of the best colleges in country to study economics IN ORDER TO TEACH economics thereafter...And continue my studies as a PhD student in the US doing research in macroeconomics (no surprise! Thanks Yulia!). I remember Yulia as a young and energetic woman, who is knowledgeable not only in economics but in art, literature and cooking. She is very open minded and does not stick to one particular paradigm - a kind of person you want your teacher to be nowadays. She teaches in a very structured way, is ready to help with all your questions and you really feel like you learned a lot. Bravo and thank you a lot.

About Sanchita
I am an educator with 3 years of experience in teaching students of bachelor’s and master’s programs. I have taught Biology, biotechnology, biochemistry and molecular biology along with taking the lab sessions for the respective subjects.

I hold a Master’s degree in Bioinformatics and Bachelor’s degree in Biotechnology.

While working as an assistant professor for a state university I have organised many workshops and seminars to provide hands-on training to students.

I was rated the highest in terms of integrating technology in the classroom for the better understanding of the students. My students have always found my powerpoint presentations, videos and study material extremely helpful in grasping the concepts and applying it while solving problems.

I believe in one-on-one discussion of the topic and an interactive mode of
teaching to keep the students involved and engaged with the classroom’s atmosphere.

Teachning biology is not just my profession but also my passion and it has given me a skillset to understand and solve problems in other subjects like chemistry, physics and mathematics as well.

She is a great mentor as well as a great human being. Apart from strengthening my fundamentals in biochemistry she also aided in honing my soft skills.
