Hello, my name is Brenda! It is nice to meet you.

Although I do work with students of all ages, I specialize in working with younger children and retired adults!

I primarily teach voice, flute, piano, music theory and history and have over 10 years of experience teaching in both individual and group settings. I also work on audition and performance preparation, do speech/accent work and more. I am constantly studying different

teaching methods so I can develop a custom program that best fits your learning styles and incorporates what you already know, with what you will need to learn in order to achieve your goals.

Classically trained, I also work with the styles of musical theatre, pop, rock, and jazz. I can teach you the proper techniques, posture, and breathing necessary to perform to the best of your ability and teach you how to utilize your full lung capacity to extend phrasing length and dynamic range. I will also help you learn to read and write music. Together, we will keep a log to track your progress lesson to lesson. This will also help you keep a record of the steps you are taking to obtain and achieve your goals and dreams.

Private Opera Voice Teacher

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.

About Lyle

I am a professional singer, pianist, and teacher of the two. I have a Bachelor of Music degree from California State University Long Beach, and a Master of Music degree from University of California Los Angeles. During my study of those two degrees, I had marvelous teaching from some of the finest pianists, coaches, and voice teachers around. I can teach you how to sing with true passion, ease, and intent.

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.

Please allow me the opportunity in teaching you and in turn I will give you all the knowledge I possess.

I can’t recommend Lyle highly enough. He is an amazing teacher for my 14 year old son who is prepping for school play auditions. He helped choose material and has many technical suggestions to sing better without being intimidating. He also is patient, warm and encouraging. Very pleased we found him.

Lyle has a singing voice that will stun and amaze you when he sings in front of you. That will immediately put you at ease and motivate you to sing better using his techniques. His classical training has proven to be a great foundation for teaching me effective ways to understand, use and improve my voice. After 2 lessons I can already see a big difference in my singing abilities and I always learn many new things at each lesson. Lyle has a really open, friendly and non judgemental demeanor and this helped a lot with my nervousness. I can't wait for my next private lesson and would encourage anyone to book him for Broadway, classical and pop singing lessons.

Lyle taught my two kids for 3 years. They loved him! My son took piano and voice lessons each week, 30mins of the two, and my daughter took only piano lessons. I can't recommend him enough!

Private Opera Voice Teacher

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 will help you sound amazing on all of your favorite songs.

As I always say, if you can learn to speak, you can learn to sing!

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!

Private Opera Voice Teacher

Laura's lessons are fun, high-energy, and tailored to meet every student's goals, whether it is to become a Broadway star or living room diva (or divo)! With over a decade of experience teaching both privately and in classrooms, Laura loves to help singers and actors excel at auditions, competitions, and performances by guiding the performer to connect with the storyteller inside. Her students have performed on and off Broadway, at Carnegie Hall, in national tours, on TV, and in theaters all across the US and Japan. And you can be next!

About Laura

Hello! I am a NYC-based singer, pianist, actress, and animal-lover. Born and raised in Los Angeles, my artistic career began as a classical pianist, performing in venues across California, Japan, and Austria from a very young age. As a singer, I performed around the world with the Broadway tour of Avenue Q, and I've been seen in dozens of musical theatre and Shakespeare productions throughout the U.S. and even in Russia!

By combining my two passions of singing and playing piano, I served as Artist-in-Residence for California Musical Theatre Company, Sacramento Theatre Company, and the cell theatre in NY.

I've been teaching in NYC for over a decade, and my passion is to inspire the next generation of creative people of all ages.

When it comes to music, there is a quote that I love: "Every expert was once a beginner." This quote reflect

s my philosophy on pursuing the arts: that it's never too late to start and that no matter where you are in your musical journey, practice is the key to success. Mastering a skill requires discipline and dedication, and my goal is to help you find joy and inspiration along the way.

My lessons focus on building a strong foundation of technique, which gives you the freedom to explore your creativity and musicality; it is very important for me that my students strive not only for technical precision but also for musical artistry. Together, we will set a practice schedule that you can adhere to regularly, and I'll make sure to send you away with specific instructions each week on how to practice effectively.

With my fun, high-energy approach to teaching, you are guaranteed to enjoy the journey as you take significant steps toward becoming an expert.​ I'm looking forward to meeting you and getting started soon!

I met Laura at Harvard University when we were both doing our MFA degrees in acting. Since our program was not a Musical Theater one and I was not a singer, I started to take private lessons with her to compliment some of the training in singing we were getting there.

Laura is a fantastic singer and actor. She has an incredible ear as well as great knowledge and experience of what makes a singing performance pop. All this makes her an outstanding coach.

Even now after graduation, I am still training with her. Our focus now is on continuing the development of my singing voice. My goal is to reach a level where I have the skill and confidence to audition professionally for musicals, and I know I am in great hands.

Paula Shtein is a gem of a vocal coach for clients of all ages, experience levels and capabilities. She is always prepared, professional, flexible and able to assist with various genres of musical requirements the clients may need her help with at a moment’s notice. She doesn’t waste time at all with pre-class chatter. Paula gets right to work and is extremely efficient and effective. In just a few sessions, Paula was able to help all three of my daughters revamp their vocal and breathing techniques, compile an updated repertoire of songs for their upcoming auditions and refine their vocal presentation (aka vocal performance). With Paula’s help my middle daughter Melania booked a role in Matilda at the Walnut Street Theatre this past holiday season and gave a stellar performances during the entire run of the show. And this past winter, Victoria (10), Sophia (13) and Melania (12) were confident and actually placed at the top of their game among peers their age at a professional workshop in NY. As a parent and manager, I view Paula as a tremendous asset. She is a very hardworking, dedicated and determined vocal coach. Most importantly, she produces results…. consistently and solid results!

Private Opera Voice Teacher

Hi! I'm an opera singer on a journey for technique perfection.
I've had many different processes from where i've learned amazing voice and life lessons that have showed me the different processes of voice in humans, for young and more experienced singers, i try to teach them how to sing in a natural way without forcing themselves, the basics of technique like breathing, mouth and throat position, vocalizes, how to sing free and how to flow when you're singing! etc...

I consider myself a really easy going teacher, i know how to treat people in an empathic way so they can learn faster and in an easy environment. I don't believe in pushing the student but to let them be free and find only freedom and love in practicing to find the real flow of music. If you prefer that i pressure you, i can also!

I see singing as a way to vibrate with the universe, the best and more powerful way that we can vibrate with it!

Looking forward to meet you! :)

About Adriana

Let's start if you agree!

"I wrote a review several months ago after my first lesson. I have been taking lessons once a week with Michelle and Robert for several months now and felt
it was time to write another review. I listened to a recording of my last lesson and compared it to my first lesson. Wow, what a difference! I couldn't believe it was me on the recording! My voice has developed a powerful and refined quality it never had before. My singing has become effortless and my range has expanded greatly and continues to expand. I can't recommend them enough. I look forward to every lesson because not only are they amazing vocal coaches, they are the nicest people you will ever meet. They are enthusiastic, encouraging, fun, and quite hilarious. My lessons always end too soon and I always improve upon my technique in some way after each lesson."
...

"Results within the first session

Jordan is an amazing teacher. I have never worked with someone so patient. When we began working together it took me the
entire hour before I could understand each new idea of her technique. She would never grow angry or frustrated with me.
Before I began taking lessons from Jordan I had terrible habits and my voice was never consistent. Some days I sounded decent and others I could barely phonate. Because of Jordan I can go into an audition or performance and successfully sing even thought I am shaking with nerves She has taught me a technique that always works whether it's that time of the month or I am especially tired. Jordan has opened up my voice to what it should be and has taught me how to tap into my resonance to create a larger, more natural sound that allows me to be heard over a piano and or small orchestra. I highly recommend Jordan as a teacher. It only takes one hour to hear improvement."
...
Eika
"Mary is the kind of person that brings happiness to her surroundings.
I have studied voice with many teachers, but Mary's coaching is the first time that
I really understand what I need to improve in my singing practices. Mary’s advice is very accurate and she pinpoints these flaws. Only half a year has passed since I started practicing singing with her; however, I can profess that she is the best teacher I have had so far. I thought my voice was becoming rusty as I aged, but it is a happy surprise that it is improving! I also feel healthier since I started to learn from Mary.
Her voice training is good for anyone who wishes to improve her/his singing technique regardless of the genre of music/songs. I recommend her singing lessons for opera voice training, popular singing from the heart, or hobby singing and body conditioning. Mary's coverage is really wide."

"Stacey is a talented teacher

Stacey is a very talented teacher with a great knowledge of repertoire, languages and musicality. She is a fine teacher for
any student who is serious about improving their vocal technique and musical skills. Stacey also understands the world of singing at the college level and beyond. She is prepared to help a student succeed and successfully prepare themselves for the demands of college auditions or a professional career."

uning to the most complicated of pieces. She makes the lessons fun and educational. In only a few weeks I feel I've learned more then I ever did in school music classes.
100% recommend."

Sheila
"Jordan is an extremely accomplished musician, and it shows in her lessons. She is able to tailor her unique approach for each individual, and she makes si

"First impressions are important! I was impressed:)"
Matthew
"Mia’s experience came through right away and I was glad I found her through this site. We started working on a few things to improve technique and Mia poi
nted out several major foundational concepts to begin thinking about. The lesson was a lot of fun!"
...
Shannon
"I have been singing opera for 7 years now, and Christine had the most thorough teaching process by far! I found my real voice underneath all the conformit
y I had been taught through choir and am now moving through singing more powerful and with my "real voice." She is open to workshopping repertoire that you are interested in, and suggests things that will help you grow your voice while not pushing an agenda, so you feel as though you have lots of artistic freedom.
Also just a super warm and authentic person. Overall a great experience!"
