Classical Voice, Opera, Lieder and Art Songs, etc. is what I know best. I was based in Europe as an opera and concert soloist for many years and can also help you with your German, French & Italian in the songs. I will develop your voice and help you to find more power and freedom of expression. The lessons will start with vocalize and technique, and then we will work on your repertoire to make sure the technique holds. Should you eventually want to have an accompanist at one of your lessons, The lesson time would of course need to be coordinated with my pianist as well.
During the summers, she offers voice lessons at her studio in Tuscany, Italy where she is also artistic director of the Camerata Colombaia Music Festival and director of "Casentino Voice" , an intensive vocal program for singers with masterclasses, private lessons, coaching and performance.
"At last, someone who's willing and able to understand the individuality of my voice. Ms. G. is a great teacher for the professional singer, though I regret I didn't study with someone like her when I was a student. She does not require that you start from the beginning again with 'her' technique. She is creative and intuitive and has the skill to help you immediately improve upon that which you already have. I am very excited that I have found her!"
"Valerie can teach you how to sing without pressure while still producing a strong sound".
"A good teacher, must be able to help you significantly in the first lesson. Valerie is one of those".
"Since I've been studying with Valerie, my voice has gotten richer and more even. Singing feels a lot easier now"
"I've studied with so many teachers, Valerie is the first one to focus on my problems, solve them and make me feel good about my strengths at the same time".
Singing is a beautiful art form that can be accessed by everyone. When taking lessons with me, we will be able to explore all of the beautiful intricacies of the voice and how it can be used to be the most expressive instrument.
With the knowledge that my degrees in voice granted me, I will be able to guide you in a safe yet encouraging manner that will lead you to success in whatever genre you aspire to perform.
I began my study of the piano at the age of 7, my mother being my first teacher. I started on Alfred Piano Books, and still strongly believe in that same curriculum. From there I began to study classical composers like Chopin, Beethoven, Clementi, and Mozart. Although my love of classical music runs deep to my core, I love jazz, pop, and gospel music. I am happy to assist the learning of any style, anything that YOU are passionate for
With me, you can expect to make weekly progress in your instrument of choice. I am a dedicated performer and an even more dedicated teacher. To me, the two go hand in hand.

My name is Louis and I play and teach Clarinets, Saxophones and voice. I am a Classical, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, Jazz and Pop musician freelancing in NYC. Join my studio and connect with numerous other musicians!
I am studying to become a professional classical singer. Through my own training, I have discovered that having an amazing teacher – one who is supportive, caring, and hard working, and who will push you and work with you to be better – is the most important tool an aspiring musician can have. I believe that every student is different, as no person's body is the same, and no vocal instrument is the same. Based on my performance in the Teaching of Singing course at Oberlin Conservatory of Music, I was selected to be a voice teacher to non-Conservatory students at Oberlin College. I have now had several students, two of whom, with my assistance, have just been accepted to prestigious summer programs in classical voice. Though I have only been teaching voice to others for a year now, I have been teaching myself alongside my own teachers through practice and independent work for the past nine years, and I have discovered countless techniques and tricks to help every aspect of singing.

As a singer myself, I have discovered countless techniques and tricks to help every aspect of singing, as well as the discovery that what works for some people does not necessarily work for others, and that's ok! The voice is individual because it is inherently unique to the person it belongs to. It is the exciting, demanding, and amazing work of a teacher to bring out each individual's voice, and I love discovering a person's voice with them. I can't wait to work with you and find your voice!

"I am very proud to pass along the rock-solid technique taught to me by master teacher Carol Kirkpatrick. 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!"

It is my personal belief that voice lessons should be fun, encouraging, and always pointed toward progress. As a graduate from the vocal performance program at The Boston Conservatory, I understand the importance of building vocal technique, as well as understanding basic musical theory. It will be my goal to not only teach you how to sing and build confidence in yourself, but also how to utilize basic tools you need to practice the right way.
I received my bachelors of music from The Boston Conservatory in 2012 and for the past 3 years I have been teaching many genres of voice and basic piano to many ages.
I want to help you build confidence, learn to play piano, craft your songwriting and performance skills, or even get booked in a musical. We are going to have a lot of fun, so get ready to laugh, get ready to learn, and most importantly, get ready to grow!

She pinpoints exactly what I am doing wrong during my lesson and offers suggestions on how to correct it going forward. I appreciate that because if your instructor doesn't tell you, your audience will. And you might not like how they say it. I am there to go beyond just singing in the shower, and her constructive criticism only makes me better. She is also polite when she corrects you, she's not cracking the whip.
She focuses immediately on different techniques that will help you improve your voice so that you can PROGRESS, instead of just banging out scales on the piano lesson after lesson and overlooking mistakes a student may make like some instructors do. I hate to be this blunt, but there are some instructors I have met in the past who do just that (none of them are from takelessons) to me it shows a devotion to the art and a commitment to bringing out the best voice that you have she wants you to be as good as her! To me no one could ask for any more than that in a voice instructor. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a teacher."
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!"
Thanks, Ms. James."
And they're not alone!
