Our voice is such a unique instrument, because it is inside of us. It makes the act of singing amazing and hard at the same time, because we all have different instruments and there is no general rule that works for everyone in the same way. When I teach, I always take into consideration the uniqueness of the voice I am working with, and this requires a great deal of attention and sensitivity. I am very passionate about teaching and my goal is to share my passion and my knowledge, in order to acquire the tools to develop that beautiful instrument that our voice is!

Just took my first lesson and I can't wait for my next one. She was wonderful and made me feel like I can actually do this!

My first lesson went very well! Alessia is patient, explains clearly, and is easy to understand. I am Excited for our lessons to come
Sebastian
As someone who as always loved singing and believing I had a good voice I self taught myself for many years. It was only when I had my first lesson with Alessia I realized how much a real professional is needed. She showed me my true potential and unlocked talent I always knew I had. She has a special way a picking out exactly what I needed to tweak or change that gave me instant results. After every lesson I get more and more motivated and confident about my voice.

I love tailoring lessons to my students! Music is personal and I want to make sure you're learning what you're interested in or need to learn in order to prepare you for auditions or keep up in groups you play in. I always ask students for a list of music they're listening to or want to learn - nothing's off limits!

I've been taking lessons with Stephanie for about 3.5 months now. I was looking for a teacher with flexibility who could adapt their teaching to the student, rather than following a rigid lesson plan. Stephanie has been a great fit! Not only do I play songs that I want to learn, but also I feel like a lot of what we focus on learning is actually adapted to me. I love that if I want to experiment with a new technique, she encourages me and is there to guide me on how to approach it. Nothing ever feels out of reach (though it might take lots of practice). She focuses on consistent improvement rather than doing something right or wrong. Stephanie is also very responsive between lessons to answer questions, including with video demos. She's very helpful, positive, and overall fun to work with.

My first virtual lesson with Stephanie went really well. I was nervous as an adult beginner. Stephanie was very reassuring, engaging and fun.

Randy did an excellent job. Very patient and knowledgeable regarding the subject matter.
Daniel
Randy is a great singing tutor. He’s patient, flexible and encouraging. My son is a little reserved boy and not comfortable at expressing his feelings, and Randy helped him reading through every phrases before the singing. That was very helpful. Thank you Randy!

Very knowledgeable and patient. Broke down challenging concepts and problems in very understandable terms. Saved me hours a week of having to read my child’s textbook and watch YouTube to teach my child what he wasn’t understanding from his middle school 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 been accepted into top performing arts programs such as The Professional Performing Arts School, Interlochen Center for the Arts and various conservatory programs.

Lessons are tailored to each individual student but generally begin with a breathing and vocal warm-up, followed by some technical exercises and finishing with a piece of music or several of their choosing. That being said, the lesson can be focused on whatever is ...

About Rebecca

"Whether it is nailing that next key audition, speaking with more confidence at your next big board meeting or just honing a skill that brings you joy, 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,” REBEC

Rebecca is the most caring person I have ever seen. She wants her students to get better and find the voice that fits them. My experience with her was unforgettable and it will help me as I proceed with an intention of pursuing a career in singing.
Abby
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.
