My name is Thea Horowitz and I’m a passionate music educator and Violinist! I earned a Bachelors in Music Performance at New Jersey City University where I had the privilege to study with professional musicians from the Metropolitan Opera, The Juilliard School, Manhattan School of Music, The Seoul National Symphony, and countless other ensembles at the forefront of the industry. In addition, I completed numerous college credits in early childhood education, music education methods, and child psychology. I was raised in a musical family and have loved music for my whole life.

I love connecting with my students and finding what motivates them to learn a love of music. With 6 years of private teaching experience and 15 years of playing experience, I strive to provide the best instruction for students of all ages and levels.

I am an active volunteer in music education and when I'm not teaching or playing, I love finding new ways to help out the awesome students and parents in the music ...

Ms. Melissa has been studying classical voice and Opera for the past 18 years. She specializes in sight singing and NYSSMA prep, and likes to focus on making singing natural and easy for the voice, using techniques like Alexander and teaching students about proper vocal anatomy so they can better understand their voices, and therefore, sing healthily.

Ms. Melissa knows that most students struggle with sight singing, and she aims to make it easier. She believes in identifying patterns to help the brain understand how to sight sing with more confidence and accuracy, and always over-prepares her students for NYSSMA by teaching them how to read at a level ahead of their own.

Ms. Melissa currently teaches out of her private home, and she has had great success over FaceTime with her other students. She hopes she can do the same for you!

About Melissa

Ms. Melissa is a classically trained singer and pianist with a love for all kinds of music. Since 2013, she has taught students to read music, understand music, and prepare for various occasions such as NYSSMA, auditions (theatre, college, etc.) and recitals. She is currently teaching out of her

We love our online lessons with Melissa! We just prop up the phone or iPad on a chair and Melissa can guide my daughter as if she was sitting right next to her!! She keeps her engaged and focused with her encouraging approach and current song choices. Voice lessons are also going great with Melissa demonstrating or singing along as needed. I spoke with A LOT of instructors and music schools and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Melissa to anyone!

"Corey worked with my daughter for four years, beginning her freshman year. He began by helping her with music assigned for her orchestra class, finding specific techniques to improve upon as they went. By her senior year they were working on advanced techniques, resulting in her reaching State for Solo & Ensemble.
Throughout her entire time with Corey her confidence grew tremendously. As a parent I appreciated the strong relationship and mutual respect they developed. I have recommended Corey and would continue to do so."

To Sing, or Not to Sing: The Sore Throat Dilemma
