Hello, my name is Brenda! It is nice to meet you.

I have been teaching private lessons for over a decade, and hold two music degrees and two teaching certifications in music (NJ) and ESL (international).

Although I do work with students of all ages, I specialize in working with younger children and retired adults!

I primarily teach voice, flute, piano, music theory and history and have over 10 years of experience teaching in both individual and group settings. I also work on audition and performance preparation, do speech/accent work and more. I am constantly studying different

teaching methods so I can develop a custom program that best fits your learning styles and incorporates what you already know, with what you will need to learn in order to achieve your goals.

Private Classical Voice Teacher

Whether singing is your chosen career or just a treasured hobby, my goal is to help you succeed! I offer voice lessons to students of all backgrounds, ages and a variety of styles. I take a healthy, classical vocal approach to encourage freedom, ease and power in the voice. A student of Bel Canto, Alexander Technique and Yoga, I incorporate a full body approach to singing. My students range from amateurs to Broadway talent. I have prepared students to perform on stage, book agents, and to be featured in television and film. My younger students have gone on to programs such as the Professional Performing Arts School, the Interlochen Arts Academy and various conservatory and college programs. My professional students have performed at such venues as New York City Opera, Radio City, in Film and Television and on National Tours.

Lessons are tailored to each individual student but generally begin with a breathing and vocal warm-up, followed by some technical exercises and finishing ...

About Rebecca

"Whether it is nailing that next key audition or speaking with more confidence at your next big board meeting, I look forward to working with you to give you the tools, training and support to succeed..."

Praised by Opera News for her “pearly tone,” REBECCA BLINDER is a voice teacher and performer living and working in NYC. She has been teaching voice in New York for over a decade, trained at a variety of festivals and young artist programs, and earned a Master’s Degree (and Bachelor's Degree) in Voice Performance from The University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance.

Rebecca has taught a wide variety of performers — from professionals to talented children and teenagers. Her students have performed in Film, Television, on National tours, at Regional Theaters and Music Venues including New York City Opera, Radio City Mus

ic Hall and recently the Academy Awards. She also enjoys working with beginners and those who want to explore their vocal potential for their own enjoyment.

As a performer herself, Rebecca’s career as an Operatic Soprano as well as a performer of Musical Theatre, New Works and Spiritual Music has taken her all over the United States, Europe and the Middle East. Favorite credits include Rosalinda (Die Fledermaus), Nedda (I Pagliacci), Micaëla (La Tragedie de Carmen) and a world premiere reading of Billy Blythe, a folk opera about the early years of Bill Clinton.

Rebecca’s knowledge of the music business, experience as a performer, and technical, supportive teaching method make her a sought-after voice teacher for students of all levels, backgrounds and vocal styles.

"My TEACHING PHILOSOPHY leads me to work with each student individually to help them find a tailored technique that works for them. No two voices are exactly alike, therefore I believe that there is not one rigid method that works for everyone. My ultimate goal is to help my students find their own unique sound, free of tension and full of confidence. Every student who comes to me started singing for a reason — because it felt good. And it should always feel good, restorative, and empowering!

In lessons I aim to keep this positive energy at the forefront and focus on making singing easier. My students and I work together to eliminate unnecessary effort and complications — those things that take away from the enjoyment that comes from singing. I take a healthy, classical vocal approach to encourage freedom, ease and power in the voice. As a student of such methods as Bel Canto, Alexander Technique and Yoga, I incorporate a full body approach to singing. I also encourage my students to find ways of improving their voices and the use of their bodies in all aspects of their lives, both in and outside the studio. In today’s busy world (and especially here in New York City) maximizing time, while learning to take a beat and focus, is a huge part of vocal technique. The voice reflects what is going on in the mind and body. In addition to their vocal work, I encourage all my students to spend time doing things that keep them happy and feeling good. Yoga, running, dancing, attending that concert or play — these activities help keep us in balance.

In my work with children and teenagers, I take special care to nurture their developing voices, encourage strong practice habits and sing with joy every day. Depending on their level of skill and their individual goals, we incorporate musicianship and music theory into technical work so that each student has the practical skills to pursue music in their life however they choose.

Whether it is nailing that next key audition or speaking with more confidence at your next big board meeting, I look forward to working with you to give you the tools, training and support to succeed!

See you in the studio! —Rebecca"

Rebecca is a wonderful vocal teacher with an incredibly warm personality that puts me at ease at encourages me to enjoy the practice of singing. During lessons, she explains each exercise very clearly and always knows the right advice to give when I am having trouble grasping a concept. She always inspires me to work hard to reach my own goals and her dedication to our lessons together has already led to amazing leaps in progress in my voice. I would absolutely recommend her for students of any level of training; you will very quickly notice the progress in your own voice while enjoying the art of singing.

Private Classical Voice Teacher

I've been a classical singer for 30 years and have sung leading roles with the Caramoor Music Festival, Glimmerglass Opera and the Orchestra of St. Luke's, among many others. Even more important than my experience, however, is my sensitive and expert touch with students of all ages and personality types. The fundamentals of vocal technique underlie all my teaching, but the individual touch and approach is tailored to each student, whatever his or her age or experience.

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!

I am not a singer, but Nancy was able to make me feel at ease and give me instructions to bring a voice out of me. Very personable and professional, she has many different ideas and exercises to allow a voice to develop. I had one other voice teacher who never even had me learn a song. Nancy is a very capable and valuable teacher. I really can’t recommend her enough!

About Christine

The Exquisite Voice, Inc.

Christine is a professional vocal coach with an exceptional reputation. She is the owner of The Exquisite Voice, Inc. Currently home in Springfield Va.

As a D.C. native, Christine has taught extensively in the DMV area for 10 years and is now taking her business/work to New York.

She is considered an expert in her field for achieving high quality vocal technique that can be implemented in all legitimate singing styles.

Christine is a fearless technician in the vocal arts, willing to put her knowledge and know how against the best in the field.

Achievable, high quality, professional results that captures and highlights a singer’s natural voice is what I am after because it brings the most joy to ourselves and to others.

Straightforward technique that removes uncertainty and doubt.

Learning to have authori

ty over your instrument to really grow into an individual artist and communicator.

Always honoring the instrument that a person has by guiding them to really learn the fullness of their abilities.

There is nothing more compelling than a voice that is natural and confident in their ability and accessing technique consistently is vital to creating this assurance and peace.

I am able to rapidly diagnosis a full range of vocal issues and begin to work towards strengthening deficient elements in relation and respect to the singer’s entire technique.

This will take time, but I make it clear exactly why this is the focus so we can work efficiently and cooperatively together.

It is important to reveal issues in a highly apparent manner, yet to be supportive and respectful of the student’s voice while motivating change to take place. I try to make it extremely clear through the exercises and rep I personally select to highlight a capability that is lacking by giving a student the right challenges where they can see they are not fully demonstrating a vocal element.

It often times is things they have been told in the past, but aren’t able to identify the problem due to lack of clarity clouded by other elements from past instruction or not provided the right tools to overcome their vocal issues in a realistic way that leads to continue success in their process. Meaning I really isolate and get to the heart of issues.

I have a signature method of highlighting issues and making corrections. I am very particular about explaining the process so that it makes sense to each student and can be accessible for them.

Another strength I have is I am able to identify the student’s learning style and am resourceful in the way I teach.

Together we will learn to develop a practical process and routine that works consistently for you based on your own personal needs as an artist.

The goal is that you will be able to instruct yourself successfully every time by thoroughly learning your instrument’s capabilities through care and guidance provided in our lessons.

I expect this from each student in their time, so that they can become confident in the choices they make to direct themselves. It is important to become independent since you are the one in control of your voice alone, and I intend to get you closer to that goal every lesson by making your voice more relatable to you by providing the proper understanding and resources to achieve this.

This is how world class musicians think, that they will be able to lead themselves in their process and trust their choices without too much worry after because the foundation and thoughtfulness to their decisions have already been made over time to where it is now intuitively inspired while performing. You can only access what you have trained (technical) or allowed (emotional).

Not only trust, but enjoy the freedom to do so. It might be a freighting concept to many, it was for me to think I must take full control, but you must eventually be assured about who you are and that you have more than enough to manage.

Something we will discuss a lot from the emotional standpoint, not allowing our fears or need/expectation to be perfect stand in our way of the bigger picture. We will develop a healthy relationship with our voice.

Every necessary element required for excellent singing will be explained. It is not possible in one or two lessons however.

It is real time and work. I do require you trust the process to a reasonable degree and know that I will always have your best intentions at heart. I have worked with many issues and types of people and have a lot of insight to pull from. Mostly people think their issues are unique, when in reality they are common. Nor do I get easily confused. So rest assure that your voice is always inspiring to me and I love to help people find more meaning in their art.

I can confidently say, almost more than any other instructor you have had we will thoroughly go over every element.

It is necessary that a student knows what is already amazing about their technique so they do not expel or replace it while working on their challenges. I cannot emphasis this enough. I have found this to be the biggest issue with passing on good instruction in the last 40 years from all institutes of voice.

Every voice comes in with something to build upon. There is not one voice, even the most challenging that doesn’t have an element right, it just might not be used appropriately while lacking all the other supportive elements, however it is there and that’s where we will start if that’s the case.

That’s why so many students, particularly very talented ones get lost in their training, because they do not realize that this has happened, so their natural abilities they cannot explain if they become teachers or professionals, which you must be able to explain everything or worst, they lose their natural ability and do not understand why.

This is also another fear of people who have natural ability, but if you have an instructor who understands you and these factors, you will be in good hands to find greater success vocally.

We need to identify our technique simply and readily every time in a way that we can articulate to ourselves.

This is a process and hard work (particularly emotional/reasonable expectation) is required on your end. More importantly developing trust for the process because what you do with your voice is up to you in the end alone and to displace that is neither helpful or honest. It is your voice! Always.

We will be doing honest work, look forward to it:D
💗💗💗

I am extremely generous as a teacher, you will come to find this is true. I promise to do my end of the deal and give you everything I have got in terms of my knowledge and insight, you just have to give yourself the opportunity to really commit to trying full heartedly. The lesson is for you. If I do not know something I say it.

I am a dramatic soprano and I have continued my vocal studies vigorously with Mrs. Fabian Bravo, a long term principal singer at The Met, who was taught formerly by Mr. Luciano Pavarotti.

I am very confident in the Italian Bel Canto technique and extensively in all popular genres, including jazz, ballads, R&B, Broadway, traditional, etc.

Technique I cover is creating legitimate support via fully integrating the body, while from the body’s relative support, applying highly efficient/directed air that is responsible for the quality of the voice’s capabilities and range of elements. Everything is created from these two fundamental elements.

We will also cover muscle release (throat, spine, tongue, facial, soft palate and accessing resonators directly, releasing the larynx and closing the vocal folds genuinely and appropriate air and relative use to the other elements, accessing legitimate chest and head voice, mixing/centering the voice appropriately with highly disciplined air and body support) legitimate dynamics with muscles released/throat open, accessing internal naturally covered space that can thoroughly release the voice through the skull and centered in which the air pressure/direction determines the dynamics, while not improperly closing the muscles or inappropriately moving the larynx/overly directing and dropping into one register, proper articulation that enhances/does not interrupt or cut off breath support/the body inappropriately/use of compressed air and direction that directly effects head voice, chest, middle mix access that most professionals do not have disciplined and create through other secondary means. This is more all equates to flexibility, strength and freedom to be endlessly expressive. Everything in balance and relation to become competent and proficient. The best part is really being able to enjoy your singing in the moment.

Looking forward to working together!

Very warmly,
Christine Padua

I have been singing opera for 7 years now, and Christine had the most thorough teaching process by far! I found my real voice underneath all the conformity I had been taught through choir and am now moving through singing more powerful and with my "real voice." She is open to workshopping repertoire that you are interested in, and suggests things that will help you grow your voice while not pushing an agenda, so you feel as though you have lots of artistic freedom.
Also just a super warm and authentic person. Overall a great experience!

Christine is a Godsend! Prior to working with her, I studied classical voice and opera with several instructors. Christine is by far the best teacher and wish I had met her sooner!

As an accomplished singer herself, she is able to identify challenging areas and help improve technique. I’m now attempting pieces with confidence that I never would have attempted previously. And, I find the sessions very relaxing and enjoyable. She inspired me to push myself further and feel like I’m getting great results! Well worth the investment.

I believe in consistent practice with scales, arpeggios and other exercises that help students build and strengthen their voices and navigate their registers. Correct breath support is too often a mystery for students, something we will demystify in our sessions. With correct breath engagement (appoggia) students will learn how to move effortlessly through their passaggio (transition to their high notes).

Hello! I am an actor, singer, and teacher in NYC. I was an adjunct faculty at NYU Steinhardt Vocal Performance program 2017-2019. At NYU, I taught private voice lessons to NYU students for 2 years, from beginner to advanced singers. My goal is to find your "authentic" voice so that you can sing in a healthy and sustainable way across the genres. (classical, music theater, pop/rock, R&B/soul, country, etc.) I have developed a style of teaching that is efficient and flexible. I will cater my lessons to your needs!

I also studied voice science (vocology) through the NYU Voice Center under the SLPs and Laryngologists, so I understand how the vocal system works. I will provide explanations that make sense using anatomy and physiology!

My teaching style is “taller-made” for each student and his/her development. Since singing is a combination of technique and expression, and is very physical and emotional, I aim to help each of my students gain that balance of emotionality with technique!

ion of technique and expression, and is very physical and emotional, I aim to help each of my students gain that balance of emotionality with technique. In my lessons, I specifically focus on:

*Unlocking voice and least amount of work to release “air flow”
*Basic fundamentals (breath energy, resonance, and vault/space)
*Physicality and acoustics (source, filter, balance, alignment, efficient placement)
*Musicianship (accuracy, phrasing, reading scores)
*Increase the range
*Provide a toolbox to adjust their instrument
*Making the voice flexible to let dimensions and colors come out
*Truthful communication as a storyteller
*Joy of singing!

I am passionate about teaching and sharing what I have learned as an actor and singer. I want to let you make a new discovery about your voice and open up the world of possibility for the voice. Singing is an incredible way to grow confidence and positive even if it's merely a hobby or extra curricular activity!

"Michelle is an amazing teacher! I have had 8 lessons and am so happy with my progress. I am 53 years old, and have been singing since high school. But,
I have never taken voice lessons, and therefore, have not been singing correctly all these years. She and her husband Robert are teaching me a whole new way of singing. It is like teaching an old dog new tricks, but they are so good at explaining things and are so supportive, encouraging and fun! It is my one hour of therapy a week. They are helping me find my new voice, and I am loving it. Highly recommend."

"Zaray has been my teacher for over 4 years and has been amazing! She taught me mostly everything about music and helped me get accepted into one of the b
est schools in Florida. I took singing lessons and piano lessons that helped me learn a lot, because of her I was able to preform in new York and attend the All-state elementary choir. Overall an excellent teacher, I really recommend!"

"Taking voice lesson with Amber is a real treat! While she is serious in teaching me how to sing correctly, how to interpret the music, she is also a lot
of fun to work with. She would act to the music to show me the difference in singing a Broadway musical versus singing a classical Italian song. She teaches me how to pronounce English, Italian and Latin correctly. I really enjoy taking voice lesson from her.
