I have over 17 years of training as an opera singer and experience true joy and fulfillment in teaching classical and opera to my students! From my wide-ranging experiences with baroque to classical to romantic and contemporary opera, I will help you grow your voice toward a technically advanced, highly artistic level!

For those who already have experience with operatic singing, I can help you polish your repertoire and address your specific needs and goals. My teaching is based in the Bel Canto tradition of classical singing, where we will focus on solid vocal functioning: posture and alignment, breathing, phonation, resonance, articulation, registration, and much more. Contact me today, I would love to work with you!

About Nicole
Welcome! Thank you for visiting my page.

I am a professional opera singer and native New Yorker. I am so excited to reach out to new and continuing students in NYC - for both voice and piano study at all levels from age 5/6 and up.

I am an active performer and I love to share my passions and knowledge with my students. I have 13+ years of individual one-on-one voice and piano teaching experience with students of all ages and abilities.

What sets me apart from the other teachers here at TakeLessons?

I bring a special warmth, dedication, wisdom, and commitment to our work. Lessons are not solely about technique or making good sounds, but about communicating musically in a more meaningful way, and unleashing your unique gifts.

Primarily, I focus on classical/opera/musical theatre repertoire with my voice students. For stude
nts age 12-18, I emphasize a combination of folk songs, Disney, a limited selected pop music, and more. Ages 5-11 I use a combination of vocal method books for very young singers in addition to selected musical theatre and Disney songs.

My voice students have performed on and off Broadway, been nominated for NJ Paper Mill Playhouse's Rising Star Awards, have been accepted to pre-college musical theater programs on full scholarship, have earned multiple leading roles in high school musicals and plays, have performed major choral works at Carnegie Hall, have sung in church choirs and for weddings, and have released their own pop/rock albums.

I look forward to the pleasure of meeting and working with you!

Piano Lesson Details:
We will primarily use Bastien method books, Faber Piano Adventures, Dozen A Day, and other supplemental material according to age and level of the student. Musicianship and theory skills are explored and nurtured in addition to acquiring a foundation of technique at the piano.

Voice Lesson Details:
You will explore, re-awaken and nourish your creativity in music. Develop a solid foundation in vocal technique through effective tools and exercises based in the Bel Canto tradition (addressing breath, posture, alignment, an open throat, phonation, resonance, articulation, registration)

Address your personal practice/performance goals. Deepen self-awareness (body, aural, and emotional awareness), musicianship, interpretation, performance, and musicality

Learn a variety of repertoire, according to your needs and development

Cultivate your artistry for application in practice, audition, and performance settings

-Experience JOY in singing

Regardless of age or skill level, I approach students with respect and professionalism within a safe and supportive environment, fostering enlightenment and creativity.

We will take your vocal study at your own pace through a personalized, holistic approach that will help you sing easily and beautifully. I can't wait for you to join me!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio: Piano/keyboard 88 keys, open space, full length mirror.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my students to provide a piano or keyboard, music stand if possible, and a mirror (full length if possible.)

*** Specialties ***
I emphasize a variety of holistic methods that serve the student in multiple ways: physical, emotional, aural awareness; posture and alignment; low-centered/connected breathing, breath compression; open throat, released tongue/jaw; legato line, phrasing; articulation, diction, style, artistry; the process of learning a piece of music. Genres: Classical, Musical Theatre, Pop. I enjoy helping students to prepare for auditions and performances, as well as explore the art of singing and encourage the joy of singing.

Nicole is a smart welcoming teacher with lots of patience when practicing with your voice. She gives great critique when needed but is still able to offer solutions to problems you might be experiencing with your voice. She has a positive attitude all around with no room for negativity.

Opera is my first love, and I love helping students learn and experience their voices for the first time in this beautiful art form. I also have a keen ear for experienced singers, and have a holistic approach to singing and breathing to help iron out problems in the voice.

About Laura
Music is definitely the universal language, and there isn't a genre I don't love; it's important to me that that aspect be brought to lessons, as well! From humble New Jersey beginnings to an opera career, I've seen the power of what music can do!

Whether it's opera, musical theater, folk, rock, or just public speaking, anything YOU love to do, I would love to teach you! Having taught all ages and levels, from first graders to adults, from someone who's never sung a note in his or her life to semi-professionals, I cater my lessons to what YOU as a student need and are interested in.

Lessons shouldn't be a chore - I like to foster an environment you look forward to being a part of! I also think that music, like any sport, is hard work, and takes seriously practice; even hobbies take concentration and application! I understand and can
work with many schedules and work loads, but I expect my students to put at least half the effort into their lessons that I do!

Laura is a wonderful voice instructor! You can tell that she is very knowledgeable about music and voice overall. She makes my lessons very fun, but also informative at the same time. They are not just technical lessons about how to sing. Laura incorporates different teaching styles to accommodate her students' way of learning, and also works with you on the style of music you prefer. The only thing I hope for more of out of my lessons is to have more time singing, but I am a beginner and Laura makes sure you strengthen your foundations first in order to support your voice!

Working with you on all aspects of musical preparation and performance skills in song, melody, lieder, opera and oratorio repertoire.

About Jonathan
Ready to try something new or build on your skills? My lessons are fun, engaging and productive! We will work on:

*breathing for singers
*vocal range
*pitch
*jaw, neck, shoulder and/or tongue tension
*dynamic range
*confidence
*musicality...and so much more!

As a graduate of the Juilliard School and having performed worldwide, I want to share how fun, healthy and effective sing is possible with consistence and informed work! No matter your goals, lets build on the skills you already poses and confidence in your own abilities. Let's sing!

The key to great singing is enthusiasm, focus and some hard work. I have worked with students of all ages and my goal is to get you singing the right way and take you from shower diva to confident performer.

A LITTLE ABOUT ME:

As a professional singer and graduate of The Juilliard Sch
ool and working Opera singer, I have had the great fortune of training and performing with some of the best in the business.

With performances at Carnegie Hall and with major orchestras such as the Toronto, Vancouver and Seattle Symphonies and around the world, I feel this gives me a unique perspective on the challenges and successes that are possible with a fun, yet focused and healthy technique based approach. Whether a beginners, intermediate or advanced singers looking to hone your skills in musical theatre classical, jazz and even pop voice.

My goal is a well rounded, relaxed yet supported vocal tone with a focus on breath, and feeling rather than by ear. This ensures that no matter what the repertoire, the situation, or the acoustics of the room, you are always focused on healthy, articulate and projected singing.

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’ve been learning from Nathan for some time now. And the difference it has made in my technique, musicality, and presentation has been tremendous! He is kind and caring teacher that always makes you feel comfortable at whatever level you go to him.

I found him while preparing for an audition for a musical theatre gig. He was quick to respond and punctual with setting up the lesson ASAP. We went through the material and his instruction helped me craft not only how to show my best self in my presentation but how to do it in a healthy, long term way. I’ve been back to him several times since. His knowledge of the voice and music is endless. He can make anyone be better and feel better about being a vocalist. I recommend him to everyone!

Isabel is very professional and fun to work with. In our first few lessons, we worked on solidifying some basic fundamentals of singing (proper breathing, posture, etc.) and have since moved on to some simple songs/arias. She is a wonderful teacher for beginners like me, but with her skill level, I can see her as being an exceptional teacher for more advanced students as well.

Ever dreamt of being on Broadway? Ever wanted to study with a Broadway star? Want to work on your technique? Have an audition (or College audition) coming up? Do you just love singing and want to do more of it?

Rachel is a Broadway veteran who teaches all ages and voice types. Rachel teaches different styles, including both classical and contemporary in both singing and acting. Whether it's Shakespeare, Opera, Musical Theatre, or anything in between!

Credits include: Christine on Broadway in Phantom of the Opera, Scarlett (original cast) on the international tour of Gone With The Wind, Ariel in The Little Mermaid, BFA MT from University of Michigan.

About Rachel
Take lessons with a Broadway veteran!

I've been teaching private voice and acting coaching for over 5 years and LOVE seeing my students improve! I am a working singer/actor, and writer/musician in NYC, but I love teaching so much that I do it even while I'm working on projects!

A little bit about me:
I graduated from University of Michigan's musical theatre program (one of the top musical theatre programs in the world!) and went straight into playing Ariel in THE LITTLE MERMAID at Chicago Shakespeare theatre, and then directly on to playing the lead in PHANTOM OF THE OPERA on Broadway for several years! I also recently returned from China, where I played Scarlett O'Hara in the musical version of GONE WITH THE WIND!

I've trained in all kinds of different techniques and currently have all different types of students and voices in my s
tudio! I teach all levels and ages, from beginners to professionals, and a wide variety of different of styles (Broadway, opera, pop, singer-songwriter, and many more). Together, we'll find the right techniques for your voice, and the concepts that click for you and make your voice soar! Now, any voice teacher worth their salt will be able to work on your technique with you, BUT in MY studio, we will go farther than that! Not only will your technique improve rapidly, but we will work on telling the story, and performing the song. Two major components that often get forgotten! And most importantly, we'll have fun while doing it!

Whether you're looking to push your audition technique over the top and BOOK that role, or NAIL that college audition, or if you're just looking to have some fun while singing, together we can make it happen!

My daughter dreams of being a professional actor/singer, and Rachel is both the best teacher and role model we could hope for! Rachel helps her with her vocal technique, helps her choose songs that are age appropriate but that enable her to expand her repertoire, and I am absolutely amazed at how much she has learned about acting and character/script analysis. My daughter eagerly does her "Rachel homework" each week :) Rachel also gives her great advice about auditioning, college, and the industry in general. She is truly a wealth of knowledge and talent! We were fortunate to see Rachel perform as Christine Daae in a performance of Phantom of the Opera (my daughter's favorite musical and dream role), and we were absolutely floored by her performance! We are so grateful that our daughter has the opportunity to train with an incredibly talented, enthusiastic artist and teacher. Thank you, Rachel!
