Private Opera Voice Teacher

Singing is one of the most joyful activities you can do! Anyone can learn to sing.
I love teaching others to sing and perform, and I've been doing so for over 20 years - through private lessons, music theater workshops, music schools and choruses. I work with students where they are at and help them to build a solid technique that works for them.

(The percentage of people who are actually tone deaf is very, very small.)

I was looking for a vibrant, fun piano teacher for my kids as they were not motivated by strict teachers who also taught them boring songs they could not relate to. What a gift of a teacher we found in Catherine. Not only is she warm, kind, caring with an easy rapport for kids and adults alike but she is also an excellent piano and voice instructor. This talented lady is a professional singer too who is well versed in Broadway show tunes and opera too. She also instill her students with a sense of musical rhythm and is holistic in her approach to kids who might need a little physical warm up before class in order to attend better. Catherine’s voice is magnificent and we were fortunate enough to attend a show where she played the lead for The Taming of the Shrew.
She is a professional voice and classical opera teacher too and this complements her piano instruction .. A perk is she can travel to your home or does lesions in her own home . In addition
is a passionate, excellent voice teacher for anyone who is looking to hone their vocal skills and talents. I wholeheartedly recommend Catherine - her lessons are more than just teaching - she is a true mentor and educator in every sense of the word.

Extremely caring and knowledgeable. My grandchildren loved her while we were taking lessons. We only stopped because they live too far away. I highly recommend Catherine!!

I have been teaching both voice and beginner to intermediate piano to all ages for five years throughout the Bronx, Manhattan, and Queens. My voice and piano lessons focus on developing a healthy technique, learning how to sight read, breathing exercises, acting, and having fun. I teach all genres and can help with audition preparation.

I am a college student majoring in sound studies who wants to go into musical theatre. Linda is kind, patient, and KNOWLEDGEABLE teacher that helped me with problems that I was having with my technique. She helped me bring my singing to the next level. I can’t help, but recommend her to everyone looking to better their singing no matter the level you’re at. At first a bit skeptical about lessons online with my internet, but after taking lessons with her I realized there was nothing to worry about when you’re learning with Linda!!
Natasha
My son and daughter have been taking vocal lessons with her. She has such a pleasant and positivo demeanor with the kids. She is working on helping both of my children build their confidence and love for singing. My son was a little reluctant to start but after one session with Linda he changed his mind. He is constantly singing around the house. My daughter is starting to feel more comfortable hitting notes that she used to shy away from. She is fair and flexible and I would definitely recommend her!
Sabryna
Super patient and well informed. Has made me realize I can do more and can’t wait to improve with her guidance.

Private Opera Voice Teacher

I’m a male voice specialist as I only teach the male voice. With over 8 years of experience, I have a deep understanding on the many strengths and the the common pitfalls of the male voice. From child to adult, opera to pop, I believe that a strong classical foundation is the key to total vocal freedom and health. Teaching concepts from the Italian and Swedish Italian singing schools, I work with singers to maximize the range in a healthy powerful way while treating each unique voice to what it needs most. Lessons are meant to be a fun learning experience and singing, a joyful way of life. Experience the difference.

About Chaim

i always wanted to be a singer but i was born a teacher. nothing gives me greater pleasure than teaching and watching my students not only succeed but often in ways they thought were impossible. i am 32 years old and I"m a male voice specialist. i have been studying the male voice for over 8 years

I have suffered from vocal problems since I was very young. I was always hoarse and experienced frequent vocal pain. I have been to three reputable voice coaches/specialists which turned out to be a waste of time and money.
When Chaim Fisgus first heard my voice he was confident he could help me, and from the beginning I saw he was different than the others. He has a passion for voice, a professional ear, and a unique talent of teaching. He doesn't just "do" exercises, but takes the time to learn the students voice and create a more personal approach. He himself is a student of some prominent voice trainers, including David Jones.
Even after I gave up on my voice Chaim did not, and I have come a long way. For the first time in my life, I started receiving compliments on my singing. Thank you Chaim!

Chaim Fisgus is a gifted voice teacher that coaches our son Dovi. Not only is he an amazing singer, but also a kind and intuitive teacher, that brings out the best of his students’ potential.
Dovi has made amazing progress since we started, his ability to sing on pitch, keep the rhythm, and perform, has improved immensely.
Dovi looks forward to his lessons as they are also such fun, we can’t recommend him enough!!

Chaim is an exceptional voice teacher. Our son has been going to Chaim for over a year now on a weekly basis and we see the progress after each session. We would highly recommend Chaim. He is very professional, great with kids, extremely patient & friendly and very accommodating. (Eli and Faigy Baumhaft)

I believe that anyone can learn to sing if they apply the principles of classical technique and practice good breath support/healthy tone production. I also believe it’s very important to apply the principles of characterization to any genre. Understanding and interpreting the lyrics/text is essent

She made an effort to focus on songs and techniques that I wanted to work on. When I didn't understand a concept she explained it in a different way and truly helped expand my knowledge in both the classical and musical theater styles. Michaela is a wonderful teacher!

I have a wide range of experience with performing many genres of music and always seek to bring out the best and most confident performance in all of my students. During my Masters at the IU Jacobs School of Music, I specialized in the performance of Baroque vocal repertoire and learned technical exercises that can help increase flexibility of technique in singing any genre of music. My diverse performance experiences across classical, opera, baroque, and musical theater enable me to encourage all students to reach their full potential with their singing voice and confidence that radiates into all areas of their lives.

Operatic Singing includes Classical Voice Training, Acting, and Language Coaching.

Alignment is the basis a great technique. Each person is different, and knowing how to help them release unwanted tension is critical.

The vocal folds are the core of the sound, and must be given the utmost care and consideration. Proper hydration is essential. They are also muscles, that need strengthening exercises and time for them to change. This will improve your vocal endurance and range. As a highly trained voice teacher, I can hear if the vocal folds are behaving in a healthy and efficient manner. It is essential that your teacher understand how to care for these delicate components of the human voice.

Vocal resonance is how opera singers are heard without amplification. It can be enhanced through awareness and coordination of the various portions of the vocal tract. There are two main components that help magnify the sound. The pharynx, also known as the throat, and the soft ...

It's a lot of fun, and I can tell that she listens very well because she immediately helps me with the areas I struggle with - whenever I come across them in the music. I really appreciate the way she coaches voice exercises, and I think they have immensely helped me get a better tone and sound. Even from the first lesson, I instantly heard a clear difference in my voice! She is seriously talented!!"

8 Beautiful Opera Arias for Beginner Singers

It is always exciting when a vocal student is ready to start studying his or her first operatic aria! One of the best things about being a classical singer is knowing you have so many great years ahead of you. After all, you’re considered in your prime in your 40s. That being said, realize that the voice you have now and the repertoire you’ll first study will be very, very different from what you sing later on in your career. It’s absolutely crucial that you sing repertoire that is …
