I'm a 'classically trained' voice teacher with extensive training in dance and drama;
a liberal arts degree from Columbia University/Master of Arts Education from City College of NY.
Before settling into a music career, worked as a dance instructor, for the City of NY and received congrats from John Lindsey, then mayor, for outstanding achievement.
As an actor, performed in several off-Broadway plays and was a principal in the “Broadway tour”, ”Pulitzer prize ” winning play, “No Place to be Somebody.” I've performed through the years as a vocalist with a trio and as a ONE WOMAN SHOW at various night spots, concert halls and social events. As a voice coach I've had the good fortune to teach the skills and techniques of the art of singing.
Singing is the joy I share as a performer and as a teacher. Anyone can learn to sing; and do it on a superior level. It takes desire and the willingness to practice the skills necessary until the goal is achieved.
The journey is worth it!

*** Lesson Details ***
WORKSHOP FOR LEARNING TO SING
COMPETENCY: A SOLID FOUNDATION IN THE BASICS OF SINGING
OBJECTIVE: Students will learn Basic Components of Singing and demonstrate via public (by choice) performance; at the end of course.
Pitch
Rhythm
Breath
Voice
Diction
Pitch
The use of pitch in language to distinguish words. All languages use intonation to express emphasis, contrast, emotion, or other such nuances.
Pitch refers to the notes and sounds that we hear when someone sings, and it determines if the song is going to sound great or not. The singer will have to hit various pitches in a song with a relative amount of accuracy in order to be in tune with the overall music accompaniment and harmonies.
RHYTHM
Every song has a certain beat, and it is essential that we keep to the basic rhythm of the song, or else we might find that we are constantly trying to catch up with the lyrics or always lagging behind. Rhythm also determines the groove of the song, and this is what gets us on our feet and dancing when we listen to upbeat or fast tempo songs.
A great sense of rhythm begins with learning to recognize various beat duration, to vocalize notes with different beats, as well as to be able to keep to the basic tempo of a song.
BREATH CONTROL
Breathing is an essential component of singing, and is what most singing instructors would introduce to students during their first lesson for singing. It is also what most people would want to learn about and also ask questions about.
Breathing is a natural process, and it is not difficult to achieve better breath control for singing. A great breath foundation is needed for singing!
VOICE
To produce great sounds when singing it is essential to adopt beneficial singing habits in order to produce sounds that are more relaxed and healthy.
DICTION
Learning how to produce sound with our voice is not enough. We still need to shape our voice, and form words in a language that our audience will understand.
This is why diction is also one of the vital basics of singing, because it determines whether our audience understands what we are singing, and whether we are able to connect with them through our song. Diction is also a key factor towards hitting the correct pitches, especially for the high notes, and this will be explained in detail.

COURSE OUTLINE:
Lesson 1 PITCH
How to avoid the most common singing mistakes that prevent singers from producing a clean and professional vocal tone.
Objective: Students will learn warm up exercises that strengthen vocal cords and loosen the muscles needed to produce a professional sound./ the importance of singing ‘scales’ to achieve this objective.
Lesson 2 RHYTHM
Rhythms often used in various standard songs.
Objective: Students will listen and learn to identify rhythms used in songs. CD player provided.
Students will learn to tap out the various types of rhythm.
Students will sing a favorite song; using rhythms learned in class.
Lesson 3 BREATH
For the purpose of voice projection, students will learn to breath more from the diaphragm, the muscles beneath the ribcage, as well as the abdominal muscles.
Objective: Students will learn vital techniques to create a connected voice blending head, chest and diaphragm.
Lesson 5 DICTION
How to use the emotions, enunciation and clarity.
Objective: Students will learn to sing a favorite song with focus on elements of singing.
Lesson 6 Review of previous 5 lessons.
Lesson 7 Group/Individual Performances
Objective: Students will show confidence in employing elements from training.
Lessons 8/9/10 Rehearsal for recital TBA

About Elliott A.

New York, NY
View Full Profile

For students with a pop or r&b influence, I like to keep things simple; Building an understanding of legato line and freedom from tension through technical exercises that then translate directly into songs.

About Elliott
I am a classically trained singer living, working, and teaching in NYC. I have a degree in vocal performance from The University of Maryland at College Park. While in the D.C. Metro area I performed as a chorister and soloist at The National Shrine, Metropolitan A.M.E Church, and the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. My exposure to a wide range of music, from baroque to contemporary gospel and musical theater, has strongly influenced my teaching. My goal is always to help a student develop their own understanding and experience of singing in a way that is fun, interactive, and personal while also progressively building a strong technique.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are generally split between technical work/ warm-ups and repertoire. I like to adapt my concepts to a students individual personality and capability, in that
sense I am flexible about the approach taken to achieve optimal results. Every singer thinks and communicates differently and I see it as my job to figure out what will work best for you. I think that a foundation in a classical approach gives students the biggest toolkit which to work. Once the fundamentals are firmly established, that singer then has the ability to approach any style of music in a way that is healthy and secure.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Programmable Digital Piano and Recording Equipment.

*** Specialties ***
The approach I take to the voice is based in the tradition of classical bel canto singing. It is always my goal to help students understand how to use their breath and body to produce sound that is free of tension, optimal, and beautiful.

Elliott is a very effective teacher. I always trust Elliott's ear and he has helped bring out a truer sound inside of me that I've never experienced before. I trained in musical theater and have sang for a long time, Elliott has greatly helped me connect with my singing instrument in an open, technical, and healthy approach. Very grateful. Thank you!

I was a 13 year old little girl when I met Sharon for the first time. I immediately knew she was the person that was going to help me achieve my goals.

When my daughter was younger, she would sing in her room, the shower or anywhere else she felt comfortable. She was very shy but loved to sing. When she was 13 years old, she lost her grandfather. This was devastating to her and the rest of our family. After the loss, she decided she wanted to make singing a part of her life. Not being musically inclined myself, I didn't know where to turn. Lucky for us, we stumbled upon Sharon West! For the next 6 years, Sharon worked with my daughter weekly teaching her so much more than just music. She guided her on all aspects of performance from singing to entertaining her audience. Sharon West was a huge part of our lives and we could never thank her enough. My daughter now performs in front of thousands and you would never have known she was every a shy, quit little girls. Sharon is by far, the best vocal/performance coach. Love and Miss you Sharon

I took lessons with Sharon weekly from the age of 14 until I was about 17 years old. Still to this day (I'm almost 21), I remember the tips she gave me about singing. Sharon is such a wonderful person that I've had the privilege of getting to know. She is very knowledgeable about the professional business and about how to be the best singer you can be. She definitely changed my voice for the better. As a student at Emerson College, I'm constantly performing, Sharon's lessons always ring true for me.

About Barbara
I graduated with my Bachelors in Music and Psychology with a focus on opera voice in 2009. In my performance program I really grew as a vocalist and learned how to overcome my own obstacles and improve my vocal technique for myself. I feel confident now in sharing my experience and my education with my students so they are able to really grow and improve as well. I started professionally and privately studying vocal technique when I was 17 and prior to that I was performing musical theater in school and in community performance groups. I really found my passion in classical repertoire and studied with numerous private teachers who were professional opera singers such as, Carol Yahr, Maria Fattore, and Annelise Von Georken. Wanting to share my passion for music and help others reach their full potential as a singer I went back for my m
asters program in music education at Hofstra University where I am currently finishing up my degree. Hofstra has really broadened my knowledge of teaching styles and pedagogies. I am also currently student teaching in public schools as well so I am teaching young adults and young children everyday and I know how to accommodate for different learning styles and help all children.

*** Lesson Details ***
I really want my students to enjoy singing and find a passion in performing. I truly believe that singing should be a combination of passion and also technique. My lessons will focus on the fundamentals of singing in order to provide healthy vocal technique and a beautiful tone. It is extremely important in all genres for singing to have support, be able to use breath properly and have an understanding how of use the voice as an instrument properly to achieve a beautiful tone. After a few I would like students to not only have improved their sound and have songs they are confident in performing, but an understanding of how to read music and sight singing at the level of the student. I also focus on performance and making sure that my students not only sound beautiful and gain the proper vocal technique but that they perform to the public and have great stage presence. Being able to convey meaning and emotion to a song while performing is equally as important as singing properly. I also love to help students be creative and write and create their owns songs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room w/ piano seating for parents. I also recommend students bring their own recording device to record their vocal lessons. An iPhone or smart phone works just fine.

*** Specialties ***
I really enjoy and teaching classical music and opera voice. Although I teach all different styles and genres, from broadway to pop, to classical, and jazz. It is extremely important to have great breathe support and ability to create resonance in order to have a beautiful legato tone. With piano I teach beginners how to read music, play in tempo and basic right hand and left hand coordination.

I teach all styles of voice, including musical theater, pop, classical, and opera. I believe that breathing is the most integral part of singing, and I bring to each lesson the understanding that the voice is a muscle that needs to be patiently trained, much like you would do a physical workout in a gym. Typically, I begin lessons with warm-ups tailored to each student’s skill level and goals. Then, we work on pieces related to the student’s interest, generally including one classical piece and one contemporary piece, analyzing the similarities between these styles and applying the same skills to both. Students can expect to see improvement in their projection, style, diction, musicality, and performance practice. My students enjoy our lessons together because they leave each lesson with a clearer direction that they can apply to the songs they desire to sing.

About Ross
I am an opera singer and private music instructor in New York City.

I cater my lessons to my students’ individual goals, firmly believing that a strong framework in classical technique can support any style of music. I love watching my students become passionate about music, achieve their goals, and reach their greatest potential as musicians. Using my experience and flexibility, I create a learning environment that is both engaging and fun.

I developed a passion for music at a young age and have been studying piano for 18 years. I received my BA in Language and Culture with a double minor in Vocal/Opera Performance and Italian, as well as my MA in Vocal Performance. While earning my MA, I coached voice, piano, and language diction to the undergraduate and masters students.

Since then, I have been actively singing in the city with var
ious opera companies as well as doing concert work. I also teach piano and voice to students of all ages, both privately and at Trevor Day School.

I've been lucky enough to have achieved my dream of performing on Broadway and I love sharing what I've learned over my twenty year career.

It's not mysterious or scary if you know how to direct your energies and coordinate your thoughts, your breath, and your voice. It should always be fun, a true expression of your individuality. The greatest singers in the world don't sound like anyone else. They sound like THEMSELVES! I'll maximize the beauty, expression, and ease of your sound, whether you're a beginner or have a final callback for a Broadway show.

I’m an opera singer who just moved to New York, and nothing brings me more pleasure than helping others access music in their own lives. Whether you’re a beginner who can’t yet read music or a seasoned enthusiast, whether you’re aspiring to a career in music or simply want to impress your friends at karaoke, I would love to help you reach your dreams!

I have an extensive background in musical theater as well as opera, and approach music from a classical perspective with the understanding that mastering this healthy, sustainable technique will help you sing any genre.

I also love to teach beginning piano as well as early childhood private music lessons, where we can explore basic musical concepts at an accessible pace.

I can’t wait to meet you and make music with you!

About Madeline
I'm an opera singer who's been making music since before I could talk, and I can't wait to share my love of music with you! I graduated from Vassar College with my BA in Music and Italian in 2016 and recently moved to New York to pursue my career. I have experience teaching Voice, Piano, and Early Childhood music lessons.

I began taking voice lessons at age 11. I had wonderful teachers who taught me classical technique to keep my voice healthy, supported, and controlled. Though I later chose to pursue a career in classical music, I initially was interested in musical theater. I am eternally grateful to my teachers for teaching me to sing classically and I maintain that all voice students should have that same foundation in classical bel canto technique, regardless of their preferred performance genre- good technique can be applied to wh
atever you sing!

In addition to Voice, I teaching beginning piano. I began studying piano long before voice, when I was only five years old. Learning to play the piano is crucial for any aspiring musician and aids in the development of fine motor skills, reading skills, and math skills in young children.

Whatever your skill level and whatever your goals, I would love to work with you to develop your musical skills. I feel confident that we can make some amazing music together!
