I am also a composition teacher. I work with composition students from beginner to advance. My composition students, over the years, range from all ages starting at 7. My students, after the first year, have been able to write string quartets and piano trios. My advanced students have entered competitions all over the country and are very successful in their composition practice. Some of their compositions have been performed in famous concert halls and schools.
As a vocal coach, I work with students of all ages. The repertoire that I recommend to beginner students includes Disney, Broadway and classical music. For intermediate and advanced vocal student, I have successfully prepared them for competitions, Broadway and University auditions as well as personal enjoyment.
Most recently I held a piano, composition and vocal recital for my students at the world famous Steinway Hall in New York City. I believe that some students work better when there is motivation for performance activities. For that reason I host these type of events. Students that decide they want to take place in these events perform among all levels. I offer these performance opportunities as an invitation. Each student has a choice as to whether they would like to perform.

During my time with students, I strive to assist them in taking risks, discovering the joy of music, and making progress with their singing. No matter what their goals are- All-State Choir, opera, musical theatre, or just having fun, I love helping them reach them. By looking at different genres of vocal music, we will focus on many different aspects of singing, from music theory, to expressive performance, to the foundation of healthy singing.

I believe that every student is unique and learns in his or her own way. Therefore, I tailor the pace and focus of lessons on each student’s interests and abilities. I believe it is integral for all students to have an understanding of music theory and therefore, work on theory and sight-reading. In addition, I think a well-rounded musical education is key, and work on an array of genres with my students including folk songs, art songs, and musical theatre. Students will work on 2-5 songs at once, and will consider a song "learned" once ...

About Megan
At the age of 4 I began producing musicals in my basement with my sister. This progressed to acting classes, piano lessons, and eventually the school musical in sixth grade. I began taking voice lessons when I was in eighth grade and have never looked back. Through high school, I focused on both classical and musical theatre genres, having leads in high school and community musicals and operettas. While attending the University of Delaware for my Bachelor of Music, I majored in Applied Music: Voice and had the privilege of performing lead roles in Sweeney Todd, The Pirates of Penzance, The Marriage of Figaro, and Die Fledermaus. In addition, I performed two recitals. I was also fortunate enough to be a member of the University of Delaware Chorale, traveling to both China and Spain for tours and competitions. I then attended UD for my Mast
er of Music in Vocal Performance where I maintained a full studio of undergraduate voice minors as a Graduate Teaching assistant.

I took my first pedagogy class at UD and began teaching voice lessons at the Community Music School during my junior year. My experience as a teaching assistant shaped me into the teacher that I am today. I love teaching and helping students reach goals! With my thorough pedagogical training and varied performance experience, I have a great deal to offer my students.

Words are what separate the voice from any other instrument. Therefore, I will work with you on ways to examine the poetry and lyrics of each song in order to portray the message of the words.

I feel equally at home working on musical theatre and classical styles with students. I have experience working on both with students.

Megan was the best voice teacher I've had. She was very personable and friendly and more importantly, she was very supportive of my goals. She really emphasized bringing out the 'free' voice as opposed to just molding it towards a particular style, which helped boost my confidence. Highly recommended!

Meg creates a very welcoming and nurturing environment where students feel safe to grow and learn.

Meg is a wonderful teacher who I would recommend to anybody. One of the things I loved about her was how patient she was with me, even when I became frustrated with myself. She creates an open and warm environment where I felt free to make mistakes and explore my voice, but would always have learned something new at the end of each lesson.

Freedom is the key word. Freedom to enjoy and love the songs you are singing, otherwise why do it? I will work with the student to increase flexibility, ease, and range while working on music that heightens their joy in singing.

About Elliot
Hello,

My name is Elliot, welcome to my page!

I am a classically-trained Tenor living and teaching in Manhattan, specializing in a comprehensive training of the voice for people of all ages. I have experience with students from the age of 7 to 47, so come one come all!

I have a Bachelors of Music degree from the Manhattan School of Music in Vocal Performance in Opera, and have had the privilege of working with some of the country's most prestigious vocal pedagogues. I employ a working knowledge of the body, and a very specific and extensive knowledge of the history of the voice and singing to help the student find freedom and joy in their music. Freedom is the key word, and is something that I seek for myself and for my students. I tailor my method to meet students need, as every singer is different, but our main goal is to fi
nd flexibility, ease, and range in the voice. I use a method with hundreds of years of success to help the student sing what makes them the happiest, in the healthiest way possible.

I have experience teaching all styles of music. I believe that every single genre/ style is accessible to a freely singing voice, and so I use a classical technical approach to help the student sing their easiest, and their best. To find happiness, and to enjoy singing... because why do it if you don't enjoy it?

I look forward to sharing some music with you.

Elliot

All levels, styles, interests, genres and passions! All are welcome!

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!

Pop/Rock singing, Audition Prep, On Camera Craft, Songwriting Guidance.

About Stephen
Want to belt like Beyonce, riff like the Weeknd, rock like Imagine Dragons? Broadway dreams? Movies?

Hi, I'm Stephen.

I'm a vocal trainer, acting coach, and songwriting teacher. My specialty is pop/rock, on camera, and helping songwriters find their voice, both lyrically and sonically.

Tap Into Your Artistry (TIYA) is the ultimate gym for singing, acting, and songwriting.

Discover the fastest and most efficient way to build, strengthen, and condition your voice. Simple, safe, systematic vocal exercises that embrace a Zen like approach with an athletic mentality.

I'm also an AEA and SAG-AFTRA actor and ASCAP songwriter and producer. If you want to learn more about acting in movies, performing on Broadway, writing your own songs, and developing show-biz career strategy, I help TIYA members every day achieve their artist
ic dreams.

MORE INFO:
I have been singing since I was 3, anything and everything from Michael Jackson to Elvis Presley to Luciano Pavarotti. Originally from Colorado, I studied music/theatre, as well as vocal pedagogy at The University of Colorado at Boulder, where I graduated with highest honors. I made my Broadway debut in "The Phantom of the Opera" at age 24. I also performed in "Chess in concert" as a featured rock tenor soloist at the New Amsterdam Theatre on Broadway with Josh Groban. I have understudied and performed lead roles in the first AEA National Tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s "Whistle Down the Wind." Regionally, I have played many lead roles all over the United States in productions including "Les Miserables," "Miss Saigon," "The Wild Party," and "She Loves Me."

As an ASCAP recording artist, currently I am working in the studio with a full production team on my first pop/rock album. I also often sing on demos for producers and write songs for other artists in many different genres.

As a TV/Film actor, most recently I was on set with Marvel's TIARA 2 on Netflix. I have booked lead roles in 4 SAG-AFTRA short films, as well as the comedic lead in a SAG-AFTRA Web-series. I was called back for producers as a Series Regular for "The Knick," an episodic series produced and directed by Steven Soderbergh on Cinemax.

My audition prep will help you master your sides for any playing space; Broadway plays/musicals and especially on camera.

TIYA clients include (aspiring) Broadway performers, Film and TV actors, singer-songwriters, news anchors, dancers, comedians, CEO's all over the world, as well as karaoke enthusiasts, and songwriting hobbyists.

My TIYA members have performed on television in Smash, Glee, and venues around NYC ranging from The Underground, Le Poisson Rouge, Drom, Cornelia Street Cafe, Arlene’s Grocery, to the Broadway productions of Ghost, Sister Act, Evita, Wicked, West Side Story, South Pacific, The Phantom of the Opera, and Rent to name a few.

*** Lesson Details ***
We will always work on whatever you want.

For Singing, as a vocal technician/trainer I am like going to the gym for your voice. My exercises are safe, simple, and most importantly, I teach you how to practice correctly.

For ACTing, we can explore both the foundation itself with monologues and scenes, as well as the tricks of the trade mastering the camera frame and how to create memorable auditions for TV/Film.

For Songwriting, we can explore the fundamentals of both lyrics and music, as well as catchy hooks, production, and song structure.

You may use my time however you wish (Voice, Acting, Songwriting, or Artistic/Career guidance).

Most vocal sessions will usually be a combination of strengthening/ conditioning exercises, and then exploring/performing a song.

Most ACTing sessions will be theatre monologues, TV/Film sides and/or On camera auditioning craft.

Career consultations usually include how to get an agent, headshots, branding, and marketing to align your artistic dreams with a strategy for success.

My goal is to use vocal exercises and techniques (mostly from my classical background) designed to use your voice effortlessly and in a healthy way. Singing should always feel good and feed you with good energy. Those exercises will teach you to free your voice and sing to the best of your possibilities without hurt and always with ease.

About Emilie
Love to sing? I am available to teach private lessons or group lessons. My goal as a voice teacher is to help you find your own voice and sound in a healthy way. For the past 12 years, I have been dedicated to singing. I am fascinated by the multiple facets of the human voice and its extraordinary power to communicate, inspire and heal.

Professional singer and touring artist, mostly working on the jazz and contemporary classical scene in New York, I also have my own solo voice project. I use loops, samplers and electronics to build songs on the spot (Village Voice 10 best Concerts of the Week.)

I have a BFA in Jazz Vocal Studies and a Certificate in Somatic Voice Level 1. I also teach music in French for children. I am a student for life myself and I always keep studying new techniques to enrich my lessons and help my students in
the best way. My rule number one is to be open minded and patient. Every student is different and has specific needs that can be addressed with the right technique.

I love to teach any level, from beginners to professionals.

Together we will work on:

- vocal technique to open your possibilities as a singer in a healthy way
- breathing and posture through yoga and relaxation exercises to free your voice and body
- musicianship: ear training, sight reading
- improvisation
- composition
- recording: record your own song
- repertoire (build your own repertoire, chart writing, arranging, transposing tunes)
- electronic device (loops, samplers)
- music toys
- audition preparation
- performance and stage preparation

I love to teach as much as I love to perform and I am always very inspired to meet new students and to help them develop their creativity with their own voice and sound.

I have been taking singing lessons for 12 years with a wide range of teachers, and I have been giving singing lessons for 3 years to an even wider range of students. I have a Bachelor of Music degree, with a focus in voice performance, so I am well-versed in many forms of technique and style. I always make sure my students are engaged and focused, and my goal is to help them achieve their personal goals. My least enjoyable experiences were when I had teachers who weren't tuned in to my specific needs and wants, so I make sure to always be attentive and accepting of my students. I also try to push my students to their greatest potential, and have students who have made it to Broadway and other successful arenas.

About Mariana
Hello! After earning my Bachelor of Music degree in Classical Voice from Hunter College in 2011, I have been working successfully as a singer, voice coach, and academic tutor. As a singer, over the past 8 years I have performed at professional theaters across the country, including Off-Broadway and at the world-renown Carnegie Hall. I specialize in musical theatre, but have a thorough classical technique, as well as strong pop/rock/belt training.

My teaching style is highly energetic, and engages the development of the student's self-esteem and enjoyment, but is also focused on a foundational technique and strong work-ethic. I am extraordinarily proud of the accomplishments many of my students have made, from achieving principal parts in their school productions, to even getting cast in Broadway shows. I am determined to help every on
e of my students reach their greatest potentials.

As a tutor, my approach is no different. Trained in the highly specialized and effective Lindamood-Bell programs, I have an intuitive grasp of children's needs and levels. I teach decoding, math, and reading comprehension, and nurture students' self-esteem and independence in their learning.

*** Lesson Details ***
I give lessons in 30, 45, and 60 minute increments. Each lesson will be personalized to the specific needs of the student.

We practiced the new cadence for example of the deceptive cadence, the plagal cadence, and the phrygian. we learnt the basic root progression. a standard method of connecting triads with roots a fifth apart is to hold the common tone in the same voice and move all the other parts to the closest possible chord number. We learn about mediant triads s well.some ways using cadence that I can expand my harmonization practice is in general, when tempted to part write or analyze a chord in common-practice music as iii (in major), give the context further thought. i imagine with this knowledge it ill help me to compose a better harmonize song.
We practice together the scale degrees that are designated by Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3...), chor ds are similarly designated by Roman numerals (I, II, III). For example, in the key of C major the notes are C,D,E,F,G,A,B and we have designated them as 1,2,3,4,5,6,7. However, when we consider the triad chords in the key of C we have Cmaj, Dm, Em, Fmaj, Gmaj, Am, Bdim. These are designated I,II,III,IV,V,VI,VII. When speaking about these chords, for instance in the key of C major, we would call Gmaj the five chord, Dm the two chord,

The easiest way to find an interval's name is to first, count all the pitch names present, including the notes themselves (ignore sharps and flats at this point). Then, find out (had it been missing a flat or sharp) what type of interval it would be, depending on whether it is perfect (a 1,4,5,8) or major (2,6,7). If there are no sharps or flats, you are done. If there are, figure out if the flat or sharp decreases or increases the distance between the two pitches. If it increases the distance, the interval is augmented. If it decreases the distance, and the interval would otherwise be perfect, it is diminished. If it decreases the distance and the interval would otherwise be major, it is min that is what I learnt

Mariana was great! Very professional and able to explain the techniques in a very clear way. When I began, I was very nervous and self-conscious. She was patient and kind and never made me feel embarrassed!

She really knows her stuff and technique. I'd been to a few voice teachers before and they were great singers, but they didn't seem to have to really KNOW the techniques behind singing. Mariana clearly is a wonderful singer and has great training in what she does.

I have been teaching voice lessons for 3 years, I have a degree in Vocal Performance from New York University.

I have experience in teaching and performing a wide variety of musical genres including Broadway/Musical Theater, Pop, Jazz, Rock, and R&B/Soul. I also teach various vocal techniques, including "legit" singing for opera/theater, belt technique, and jazz technique.

The structure of my singing lesson typically consists of warm-ups and technical development for the first half, then working on song repertoire for the second half. I like to discuss the acting and emotion of a song too, because I think it's important to know what you're singing about and to be able to give a compelling performance.

I use my background in yoga to help my students find relaxation in their bodies and connect to their breath. Body-awareness is very important for singing and I also incorporate this into my lessons.

I've so far only taken one lesson with Ionie, but I learned an incredible amount in that short time. She was able to instantly help me find better tone and fluidity with voice. She is very clear with her analogies and descriptions of what she asks you to perform, and overall a very a good communicator.

What's great about Ionie is that she has Classical training and experience in Musical Theater. That really helped me because she could use her classical training to make sure I stopped singing in a way that damaged my voice and understood my goals for singing Pop and Musical Theater style songs. She was prompt, professional, nice, honest, and hardworking.

Dear Future Students,

I want to make your voice shine! My goal is to help you reach your goal of being a singer. I will help you anyway I can. We're going to have lots of fun learning different techniques. However, the most important things is getting to sing not only great, but also very healthy so that you can have a long career.

About Deborah
I have so many different things I teach. If you are looking for a voice teacher, I definitely can be of help. I have been singing all of my life. I sing in many different genres like pop, gospel, R&B, and classical. I can even help if you want to be an opera singer, as I am studying to be one myself at the Aaron Copland of Music. First things we would start to do is learn how to breathe. After the student understands good breath, then we will apply it to actual singing.

I also teach Italian, and have taught the language for 3 years in a private school. I lived in Italy for a while and I just love the language. If anyone needs a tutor, I can help!

I also teach art history, and art as far as drawing and painting. So if any parent wants for their child learn how to express themselves through painting or drawing, I can do that as well!!


I love to do all of these things, as I have a great passion for them! I hope I can inspire someone else.

Coaching Vocal and/or Scenic; Learning how to accompany yourself with an instrument while singing; Ear training (Rhythmic and harmonic); controlling your stress, anxiety and working on your confidence and self estime.
Come how you are and let's learn while having fun! Any request you might have, we will work on it and make it happen :)
I studied at the "Music Academy International" of Nancy, was on "The Voice" France (made it to the top 20), studied at "Berklee College of Music" (Boston), taught a lot in Europe before moving to USA and traveled a lot all over the world to learn, meet, share with people.

- Coaching Vocal and/or Scenic:
If you have a piece to prepare for a concert, competition, audition, or just for yourself, we will learn to "know" your voice, work the "raw" voice (without effects) through various exercises, then learn to control the effects you could use, as well as feeling good on stage, in front of an audience or just a few people.

About Pia
I am a professional harpist/singer, composer and arranger raised in Belgium.
I graduated from the Music Academy International (Nancy) in voice and from Berklee College of Music (Boston) in harp where I performed in many different settings and styles of music (Jazz, Pop, Mediterranean music, Middle Eastern music, Latin music,...). I was also part of "The Voice" France in 2012 where I made it to the top 20. Additionally, I traveled a lot and performed in many different festivals around the world where I also gave master classes about the Harp Jazz & Modern Harp.

I had been classically trained as a harpist for 10 years and have dedicated 10 other years of my life to "evolving" the function of the harp in music. I incorporate the harp in various styles of music outside of the classical tradition. I perform original compositions and covers th
at feature the harp in different settings and styles of music.

I teach harp students of all different ages and experience levels.
With beginners, we will start, of course, by learning the foundation of the technique as well as developing the ear and the rhythm. We will start learning different styles of music using excellent and very fun exercices and tunes.
With more advanced harpists, we will be able to explore different styles of music more deeply, develop the rhythm on the harp, improvise, learn different jazz standards, try arrangements of known pieces (you can request anything you like), and even include singing if you wish :)

I love to teach the harp "differently" to open more horizons.
I love to teach while having fun! I always listen to the individual needs of my students and try to create the best environment for them. I want them to feel confortable and therefore be ready to learn and share in the best conditions.
