About Dorothy
I absolutely LOVE teaching. I leave every lesson with a new found excitement and often find that I'm learning as much as my students. I believe that the "process" is just important as the "product" when it comes to learning.

I recently graduated with my second masters degree from Teachers College, Columbia University in Music Education. I also hold a Master of Music and Bachelor of Music both in Vocal Performance. I also recently sang for the second time at Carnegie Hall - 9 months pregnant!

Curriculum will vary student to student. We will initially speak about goals, long-term and short-term, and what you hope to achieve. Based on this, I will tailor lesson plans to the needs of each student.

Great Dedicated Instructor!

She first lets the student warm up and asks for short-term and long-term goals. From there develops a plan for the student to follow, that she feels will show the best results. She is always asking how comfortable one is whether with certain exercises, ranges, or songs and if the student is fine with her current curriculum or what the student prefers to work on first. You can tell she has a passion for music as we all do that are looking for lessons, and her goal is to help us accomplish what we want to with our voice to the best of our and her abilities. She also knows music theory really well and provides information, and she has a beautiful voice!

In your lesson, I start where you're at. I identify immediate issues and then put you on a regimen to move you toward your vocal best. I am a stern but encouraging teacher. I expect a vocalist/speaker to practice.

Each lesson is recorded and emailed so you can listen and practice. Practicing is imperative to building your vocal muscles, stamina, breathing, support and performance skills.

I use proven techniques to improve your voice by teaching the vocal muscles to work symmetrically improving your natural sound, support and create a balance in breath pressure.

I am a trained Opera singer, jazz vocalist and musical theatre performer (AEA) and have training in Adult and Child Vocal Pedagogy both in college and with the National Association of Teachers of Singing of which I am a full member.

***I specialize in teaching classical singers how to transits to a contemporary sound without losing their classic sound.***

About Karmyn
Hello! My name is Karmyn and I am a professional singer/actress and vocal teacher/technician. In my journey to become a vocal artist, I had to discover the proper techniques to allow me to sing both classical and musical theatre. Being a professional vocalist, I had to find something that worked safely and effectively!

I would love the opportunity to share this powerful technique with you and help you overcome your vocal weaknesses and learn to sing with ease, musicality and strength!

*** My Story ***

When I entered college in the 1993, I had high hopes for my voice. My usable range was quite large for my age: G3 to E6. During my collegiate training I began to notice problems: jaw pain that I had never had before, loss of breath control and forced high notes that used to feel so natural. Unfortunately, because of this training
, I left college with a shrunken range: A3 to Ab5, I had lost more than an octave as a result of poor training by a doctorate of music.

In 1995 I won Miss Louisiana (Miss America). I was blessed to received scholarship for the rest of school. One of the colleges that provided money was the University of Louisiana Monroe. I decided to take summer sessions with Dr. Weidman. He realized quite quickly that I had been given the wrong Fach and technique for my voice type and encouraged me to stop with my former teacher and give my voice a break. And I did.

In fact, I decided to focus on acting. The closest acting community was Dallas, Texas. There I was picked up by the Ivett Stone Agency and began booking national commercials, TV spots and films. Along the way I worked with Don Shook of the (then) Actors Company in Dallas, TX. Don listened to my vocal story and told me about his teacher, Bill Bauer.

Bill became my vocal mentor and saving grace. He taught me how to release the tension of poor training and build the technique that lasts a lifetime! I am forever in his debit as my Angel of Voice!

Along with his guidance and genius he helped developed a safe, powerful technique for all vocal genres. I’m so confident that this method will work that I can I guarantee your singing and/or speaking voice will be the best EVER!

In addition to Bill's technique, in 2005, I began incorporating the Gary Catona Method for both my speaking and singing students. It is a powerful Bel Canto vowel method that strengthens and heals all voice types!

Whether you are a beginner and want a solid technique, or you have experienced bad training and need to retrain, I guarantee this method will work for you!

*** How I Can Help You***

I have taught both singing and acting for over 17 years and have the honor of working with some amazing students including, American Idol finalist Rachel Hale, Singer/Song writer Sara Skinner, Bluegrass singer Joseph Hott, Actress Molly Quinn, Actor John R Colley, Ark-La-Tex’s country star, Klancy Johnson, singer/actress Tara Clem and many, many more.

Here are some examples of how I can help: vocal node/polyp elimination therapy, increasing vocal range, eliminating “breaks” in your range, supported sound, natural breathing techniques, body alignment, conquering performance anxiety, stage presence, song interpretation, and positive internal programming.

I began teaching private vocal lessons in 1998. I have taught for two schools of music, First United Methodist Music School in Texarkana, Arkansas and Burbank Music Academy in Burbank, California. In 2007, I began offering vocal lessons online through Skype. My current studio is located in Manhattan.

I've been a member of the National Association of Teacher's of singing for 6 years and am also a member of Actors Equity, SAG-AFTRA, NARAS (the Grammy's) and a lifetime member for the music fraternity Sigma Alpha Iota. I hold 2 Fine Arts degrees in Music and Drama as well as a Bachelor of Applied Arts; Sciences in Administrative Leadership with an emphasis in Psychology.

*** Lesson Details ***

In your lesson, I start where you're at. I identify immediate problems and then put you on a regimen to move you toward your vocal best. I am a stern but encouraging teacher. I expect a vocalist to practice.

Whether a beginner or seasoned performer. My goal is to get your voice to a place of ease in production and to articulate your performance in a way to connect with your audience.

Each lesson is recorded and emailed so you can listen and practice. Practicing is imperative to building your vocal muscles and performance skills.

Here is a list of other benefits that I provide: ear training, finding your true voice - not just an imitation of your favorite vocalist, smart career goal setting, overcoming stage fright, audition/interview techniques, positive self-programming, finding your acting "type"career marketing strategies, how to work "where you're at", scene study, monologue preparation, and a building basic musical theatre audition book.

*** Studio Details**

-an Mp3 of your lesson either on CD (you provide), flash drive (you supply) or a download via website,

-music track editing (includes cutting, tempo changes, key adjustments, etc. (I usually do music editing outside of a lesson for a nominal fee.),

-stage choreography/blocking,

-microphone training,

-and studio recording training.

*** Studio Equipment ***

Yeti microphone, H4n Zoom recorder, Audio Technica AT 3035 microphone. 

-Music Editing Software: Pro-Tools, Cubase LX, Audacity, Garageband, Sony Sound Forge

-Video Editing Software: Final Cut, Sony Vegas, iMovie

-I also utilize Sing & See in my studio for vocal analysis when needed.

*** Specialties ***

Along with the guidance and genius of Dallas-based vocal teacher and composer, Bill Bauer, I have developed a safe, powerful technique in the art of vocal production for all vocal genres. Some of which include supported belt singing and Bel Canto-style singing.

I am also a trained Opera singer and jazz vocalist and have trained in Vocal Pedagogy both in college as well as with the National Association of Teachers of Singing of which I am a full member.

I am a former Miss Louisiana and talent winner at Miss America. I have judged numerous local, state, and national pageants and talent shows across the country.

I feel like I will definitely be making great progress and will achieve all the goals that I set out for myself plus more. I don't usually write reviews but this one was well deserved.

View Full Profile

I have taught many individuals who had pitch problems, couldn't breathe, and those who suffered from tight throats and constant pain when eliciting sounds! All those who remained dedicated to themselves came away singing beautifully! It is a simply a matter of identifying the issues and tackling them. We are all meant to be able to sing! Nature built us that way! In my studio, the person who is doing the singing takes priority. Each one of us are complex individuals, and we affect the workings of the instrument that is you.

About Sue Anne
Sue Anne offers classical structural work on the elements of the voice combined with a holistic approach to the individual needs of each student. The goal is a natural unaffected sound for effortless vocal communication in any singing arena. Ms. Gershenzon. has 35 years of experience in Broadway and Opera, and can help you with any aspect of vocal performance and technical mastery. Singers who are committed to vocal development on any and all levels are welcome.

There is nothing more exhilarating than beautiful sound soaring fully and freely out of your body. This achievement is a process!

I try to guide each student to the essence of his or her unique sound, and that is accessed through a clear and open instrument. This requires fundamental work on the elements of the voice. There are many technical steps to this process.

Freeing the head and neck of constriction
Balancing and integrating the head and chest registers
Vowel purification
Addressing Resonance and the 6 areas of relaxation
Coordination of and strengthening of the breathing body
Body awareness and relaxation
Mind Body Spirit integration

Each individual has unique challenges that can block the voice on many levels. My approach is a holistic one. When your instrument is in a healthy balance you can sing in any forum.

The goal is effortless voice

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are taught very close to Grand Central Station convenient for commuters from Connecticut or Westchester. Not to worry, there is no judgement in my studio, in fact, that is my one rule! The studio is a safe place to take risks and explore with our voices. We will work on the proper breathing for power and control, smoothly singing from the highest to the lowest notes in your range, and extending beyond what you never dreamed possible, how all the muscles in your body affect the sound that comes out of you and how to gently optimize your sound, and how you affect your sound by your thoughts feelings and emotions. You are your instrument! In three months you will feel you have a voice you never dreamed you could have.

*** Specialties ***
I have over 20 years of professional experience and training with masters. Eileen Farrell, who was one of the greatest voices of the 20th century. Conrad L. Osborne, Opera Critic for world renown musical publications such as Opera News and High Fidelity.

Somatic Voicework The LoVetri Method takes registration understanding to another level and combined with resonance work to take the chest voice up into the head voice fo a healthy Broadway sound.

The McClosky Technique offers the anatomical understanding and affect of the extrinsic muscles of the face, jaw, throat, neck, tongue and alignment, and how these elements affect the smooth functioning inside the larynx.

I incorporate these styles into my own method of approaching the voice by equally addressing Breathing/Registration/Resonance/ Relaxation, and Mind/Body/Emotion.

I am a certified Energy Healer with over 10 years of study and practice in this area. I am very aware of the energetic aspects of an individual, and utilize that knowledge to enhance the learning process.

Although I've only been a student of Sue Anne's for a short time, she has already helped me so much to let go of bad habits and develop proper technique. She is very patient and at the same time, she is enthusiastic and genuinely invested in helping me reach my potential. I highly recommend her.

Sue Anne is wonderful!

I came to New York for school and to further my training and aspiration to pursue musical theatre. I saw Sue Anne's ad in Hunter College. Her work focuses on how to sing naturally, something I have always tended to struggle with. I often found myself losing my voice the night before my musical's opening night, because of my constant belting and lack of a balanced relationship between my head voice and chest voice. After being with Sue Anne for a few months, my voice has felt and sounded much healthier! I have gained knowledge of the parts of the body involved in singing and especially breathing, and now instead of wailing away at any high note, I am singing with more ease. Sue Anne is an amazingly talented, knowledgeable and lovely teacher and person. I am ecstatic to have met her, and look forward to hopefully what will be many more months of lessons!

I have been involved with singing longer than any other art form. My mama sang constantly as she worked. I sang along from my crib. First came the Arias, Later in life, Musical Theatre and later still, singer/songwriting. I have had the benefit of many teachers and eclectic tastes and love passing on the knowledge. There is nothing more fun than watching someone discover their own voice.

About Marie-France
I have taught piano and voice most of my adult life. Early on I learned the need to adapt my teaching style to the uniqueness of each student, especially those whose perceptions differ widely from the general populace. I love what I do, helping each student discover and nurture their abilities, no matter what age the student may be.

The Holistic Piano method is especially effective with my Autism-spectrum students, a segment of the population I find particularly rewarding to teach.

The following is a quote from ex-student Karena Krull, author of "Drama Made Easy", and "Rummy Roots."

“Her greatest strength is her ability to find the right direction for each individual. This ability to adapt to the student's needs lends to individual success for student and avoids their frustration. If her current method or communication is
n't creating success for a student she will quickly change to another till she finds the right words or method to enable the student to succeed with the least amount of frustration.”

*** Lesson Details ***
I draw on a wide range of materials in The Holistic Piano (and voice) method. The curriculum may be color-based or number-based, we might focus on chord building or sight-reading, or Songwriting, depending on the student's need and desire.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Large Music Room: one grand piano, 2 keyboards, parents can sit in on lesson from living room

*** Specialties ***
Because each student is an individual, I approach teaching like a coach, custom designing a course of study for each student to meet their individual needs.

Our ultimate goal as a singer is communication, and developing a healthy technique enables us to express freely! Whether you're singing on the stage professionally, or in front of friends and family, the goal is still the same- to sing your very best- and the tools we will build together will last a lifetime!

About Julia
Julia has been teaching private voice for over 10 years. In 2006, she opened her private voice studio in Austin, TX where she completed her Graduate studies at The University of Texas. She now resides and teaches in Bergen County, New Jersey. Her students have received many honors including scholarship awards for colleges and universities, awards for solo and ensemble competitions and Texas All-State Choir, leading roles in musicals, and recording contracts! Additionally, her students perform in a wide range of genres -from National tours, Regional theater, to lead singers in rock bands. She is dedicated to seeing her students grow and succeed as vocalists and performers.

As a singer, Julia has most recently been seen as Donna Elvira in Opera Orlando's production of "Don Giovanni", Roxanne Conti cover in the off-broadway produc
tion of "Figaro90210!", and Musetta in Wichita Grand Opera's "La Boheme". Previous seasons have seen Julia as Berenice in Little Opera Theatre of NY's "L'occasione fa il ladro", Lydia Larkspur in the NY Premiere of "The Rivals" with Bronx Opera, Violetta in "La Traviata" with the Northern Dutchess Symphony Orchestra and Helena in "A Midsummer Night's Dream" with Opera Naples.

*** Lesson Details ***
What happens in a Lesson? In order to train your physical voice, it is necessary to do vocal exercises, in the same way that one needs to train at a gym. There is no "magic key" to unlock one's voice; it is a matter of daily practice and muscle strengthening/stretching. So, the first part of the lesson will be focused on vocal exercises specifically tailored to YOUR VOICE and its needs. The second half of the lesson is the fun part- SINGING! We will work on any songs and styles that YOU choose. Whether you want to sing Rock, Country, Pop, Musical Theater, or Classical, there is a healthy and communicative way to sing!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a keyboard. The student should provide a recording device, iPhone, etc.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Classical and Broadway style singing, but have extensive experience in Contemporary Commercial Music as well. I teach a healthy approach to all styles, and modify technical approaches towards the genre that the student is most interested in.

I endorse this teacher highly!

I was having trouble finding a teacher by word-of-mouth - prospective teachers would not return phone calls and seems to have little interest in my son's musical education. Ever since Take Lessons contacted Lesley-Ann on my behalf, we have been in consistent contact. She has followed through on her promises, presented an appropriate enthusiasm for the job, and seems to have really inspired my teenage son to want to play the piano, and view this as a great opportunity. I look forward to working with her on his development, and I encourage other prospective students to employ her as a guide on their musical journey.

As a singer, I often hear people from all walks of life lament about their inability to carry a tune and how they wish they had been born with the ability to sing. I believe that everybody has a voice worth sharing and cultivating: the first step in that journey is to find the right voice teacher.

I frequently work with students interested in developing a technique suitable for pop music and musical theater (techniques like belting), as well as students looking to begin or further their training as classically trained singers.

My teaching philosophy utilizes classically informed techniques and methodologies in order to get students to where they want to be: whether you want to sing opera, musical theater, or pop, I will help you to find and nurture your unique voice in a supportive and safe environment.

I work with students of all ages and levels. Please feel free to contact me in order to set up a trial lesson.

Candice was an awesome voice instructor! She helped me understand the craft better and was great at helping me choose songs for recitals, too. She challenged me but also knew what I could and could not handle. She also listened well and followed the style I liked. I definitely became a better singer because of her, and still use of some of her warm ups today when I get opportunities to sing. I miss having her around in Pittsburgh!
