I have worked with a number of Broadway performers, helping them find dynamic and compelling ways of fine tuning their performances.

About Amy
I have been a voice, acting, and teacher of creative arts for over 25 years. My background includes ten years of classical voice training with Maestro Julio Berrocal, as well as vocal training through the Feldenkrais approach with Marcy Lindhiemer. In acting, I have studied with renowned Stanislavsky scholar Sonia Moore and Master acting teacher of the Strasberg Method, Marcia Haufrecht. I received a B.A. For comparative literature and creative writing at the State University of New York at Purchase and have recently completed my Master's degree in social work at Walden University.
I believe, within all of us, Is the ability to express something distinctive and original. I work to help students discover their unique voice, whether it be through singing, acting, or writing. I share with my student'an array of tool to gain the ability a
nd confidence to achieve their goals. I empathize deeply with the challenges students may face when pursuing a life in the creative and performing arts, having worked professionally in those areas for most of my adult life. I believe, it is the teacher's job to respect each student's individual process of learning.
My students have gone on to become recording artists, Broadway performers, movie actors, Blues and cabaret artists, and published writers.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice
I am an empathetic teacher, sensitive to the student's individual process of learning. My singing lessons usually start with breathing and relaxation exercises. Vocal technique exercises come next. When the student is fully warmed up, we will begin to work on songs. It is important that students be a part of the process of picking material since the more personally they respond to the material the more apt they are to become engaged in their lessons. After three to six months beginning students will have gained an understanding of the fundamentals of breathing, relaxation, and basic performance skills. With more advanced students the focus will be on range extension and the on-going development of vocal style through song interpretation and performance related exercises.
Acting
As an acting teacher and coach, I tailor my classes to the needs of each student. I utilize improvisatory and sensory techniques to help unleash spontaneity. I also encourage the students to use their personal experiences as a way to access a full range of emotions. I enjoy working with the student on script analysis, so as to discover the underlying motivations of the character the student is working on.
Creative and Lyric Writing
I use prompts as a way to get the student writing. Often, I will ask the student to write for stretches of time without editing themselves. It is important to unleash imagination before beginning the process of editing. Many times it is the unexpected that is the most compelling.

*** Studio Equipment ***
home- 10 minutes away from Manhattan with piano, seating for parents
-practice studio seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a piano, cd/mp3 player and an large library of songbooks to work from. The student should bring sheet music of songs they want to work on and a recording device.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching how to sing rock, pop, musical theater, jazz, and blues without hurting the voice as well as method acting instruction.

About Marcelle
Hello Singers! I am an experienced teacher with a Bachelors and Masters Degree in vocal performance and offer a wide range of vocal expertise. I have been teaching voice for more than 14 years in the New York metro area to a busy studio, including domestic and international recording artists and celebrity clients. My students have done exceptionally well, with a many individuals going on to score very highly in NYSSMA, perform solo recitals at Carnegie Hall and attend prestigious music schools such as Laguardia High School and The Manhattan School of Music. My vocal studio and teaching has been featured in Classical Singer Magazine. Further, I have had several students go on to audition for Broadway shows and land parts with great success. I have extensive experience in a variety of singing styles, as I have performed in many musicals, s
ang for a jazz big band and auditioned for opera houses around the world.

With proper vocal technique you can finally use the voice you never knew you had! Learn to vocalize, use proper breathing technique, sing with more ease and agility and overcome the fear of singing in public. I teach students of all ages with beginning to advanced knowledge of voice technique in most styles- classical, Broadway, jazz, pop, rock, gospel...etc. Looking forward to hearing you soon!

Audition ER available.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons with me are exactly what you need them to be-- Auditioning for something? Want to improve your technique? Weekend Karaoke warrior? Or just singing for fun? I'm here to help!

My style is mostly laid back and fun, always full of positive encouragement and the right amount of strictness (usually close to performance and audition crunch time!)

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upright piano, music, stand

*** Specialties ***
I'm very versatile- happy to work with students in all genres (opera, Broadway, rock, pop, gospel, folk...etc) I specialize in audition ER, work with all students to help with stage presence and performance. All students will work on ear training and some sight reading-- this will always make you a better musician.

Marcelle is a wonderful teacher. She always makes you feel comfortable, listens to your concerns, and gives great tips/ways into establishing a good technique. I had lessons with her over the summer, and in that little time I felt like I'd grown a lot. That fall, I auditioned for a show at my university that made me sing in a style I've never been comfortable with. It was a really strenuous process and nearly all of the singers strained their voices. My voice adapted because I had a great foundation.

SAG-AFTRA, VASTA, NATS (certified), NARAS, NAMTA, BMI, MAC, NJMEA, NAfME. NJ Theatre Alliance, & Certified Artist Developer with Conquer Entertainment,
16+ years of teaching to children - teens - adults (Ages 6+ group classes, 8+ private lessons)

RACHEL M.'S BIO:

Rachel is a member of SAG-AFTRA, The National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS certified), VASTA (Voice And Speech Trainers Association), NARAS (The Grammy Awards), NAMTA, NJMEA (New Jersey Music Educators Association), NAfME (National Association of Music Education), NYSSMA (New York State School Music Association,) MAC (Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs), The NJ Theatre Alliance, NSA (Nashville Songwriting Association International), and BMI (Broadcast Music Inc). She has been teaching Bel Canto singing technique for the modern singer and Stella Adler-Stanislavsky-Chekhov-Meisner acting technique for all mediums for 16+ years to children, teens, and adults.

Rachel has trained at The Hages Music Studio under a master teacher for 22+ years in the Bel Canto singing technique for all genres, studied at The Stella Adler Studio of Acting in NYC as well as recorded and released her first album called "Just Meant To Be". Other credits include commercials, films, TV shows (One Tree Hill, AMC, Food Network), music videos (including Rachel's singles "Don't Even Try", "You Will Love On"), & numerous stage credits (Off-Broadway/NYC Theatre).

Rachel has also been fortunate to have worked & performed with many people in the business including Grammy-Tony-Emmy Award Winners/Nominees.

LESSON DETAILS

Whether you are a parent looking for instruction for your child, or for yourself, Rachel can customize the right program that best suits your needs. Her students come from all walks of life and have different goals, but they all have one thing in common. They love performing and have the desire to be the best at their chosen craft (singing/acting).

Some students want to sing/act for themselves, others want to sing/act for a hobby, and others want to be professional performers. That's where Rachel comes in. No matter what your goals are, she can help. Rachel teaches her students how to become true artists without tearing them down and without taking away the part of them that makes them unique. She teaches healthy technique that is based off of the human anatomy; the science of how the body/mind works and how the body/mind can work as efficiently as possible while singing or acting.

Learning how to sing/act is a process and doesn't happen overnight. Rachel's ultimate goal as a teacher is to not only make her students the best performers and singers they can be, but also give them all of the proper tools they need to have a more productive mind frame and become self-sufficient. Of course this can take years to master. It takes time and dedication.

OTHER LESSON INFORMATION

SINGING: Bel Canto singing technique for the modern singer is taught in private and group classes. No one sounds like old opera singers, even if the student wants to sing opera. Students are allowed to choose most of the material they learn in the lesson. There will be times when Rachel will suggest a song to a student but if the student doesn't enjoy the song, they will work as a team to find a song that does work for the student. Gain a better tone quality, complete control of your voice, bigger range, more flexibility, and confidence. Learn healthy voice technique, how to fully take care of your own voice so you can sing for the rest of your life (even after lessons), and become a self sufficient performer for life.

ACTING: Stella Adler, Stanislavsky, Chekhov, and Meisner Acting Technique for Theatre/Camera is taught in private and group classes. All students are exposed to each technique and Rachel sees which technique each student responds to the most. Once the student and Rachel are able to identify the technique, Rachel continues to use the terminology of that technique for the remainder of the time the student is in lessons. Students eventually are able to play roles truthfully and realistically, even if the roles are opposite of the student's own personality.

BY THE TIME STUDENTS GRADUATE FROM LESSONS:

1. Gain a lifelong, solid, consistent, and healthy technique that they can always count on in practice and performance.

2. Gain specific technical and personal notes in a notebook and/or computer file that is organized and always accessible for review.

3. Gain artistry, performance skills, and a strong voice that will look/sound authentic; Singers will sound appropriate to whatever style of music they are singing. (No fake sound or look.) Actors will just be in the moment and truthful whether they are on stage or in front of the camera.

4. Gain the confidence to always put on a great performance.

5. Gain focus and a more productive mind frame.

6. Become self-sufficient by knowing how to assess a problem and then fix it without creating a new issue.

*** Studio Equipment ***
PRIVATE HOME STUDIO: Keyboard, speakers (smartphone, iPod, iPad), CD player, tape recorder/player, digital recorder, music stand, mirror, laptop, sheet music selections, HD video camera, tripod, video editing software, audio editing software, USB microphone, and high speed WiFi internet.

**ASK ABOUT ON LOCATION TRAINING (ON SET, THEATER, PERFORMANCE EVENT, OR RECORDING STUDIO)!

**ONLINE LESSONS ALSO AVAILABLE!

*** Specialties ***
We specialize in Bel Canto voice technique for the modern singer. Each student can sing all genres without sounding too classical, "fake", and without losing their voice while singing for long periods of time.

Other Specialties: Teaching acting technique for theatre-TV-Film (Stella Adler, Stanislavsky, Chekhov, & Meisner), performance skills, songwriting, and creating self-sufficient singers-actors-performers (Artist Development).

STUDIO POLICIES-

CANCELLATION: 48 hour lesson cancellation policy and emergencies (determined by me) are handled on a case by case basis. If the student needs to miss a lesson due to an other activity or vacation, they or their parents/guardian if under 18, must contact Rachel Menconi at least a week from their next scheduled lesson in advance to prevent from forfeiting the lesson.

MAKE UPS: Make up lessons will be scheduled when time allows. No make up lesson or class will be given to ‘no shows’ or late cancellation, and no extra time will be given to students who are late to their lesson or class. If there is ever a time Rachel Menconi is running late, extra time will be given to make the lesson a full 60 minutes. If Rachel Menconi needs to reschedule, a make up lesson will be scheduled as close to the same week as possible. Make up lessons are scheduled at Rachel Menconi’s discretion.

ONLINE LESSONS FOR IN-PERSON LESSON CLIENTS: In the event that the student is sick but still would like their lesson, an online lesson can be scheduled instead. Students can NOT come to their in person lesson sick, coughing, sneezing, with a runny nose, cold, flu, “allergies”, fever, etc. (This is to make sure no germs will be spread).

An online lesson can also be scheduled if there is bad weather, if a student is having car trouble, or any other reason for the student not being able to physically get to Rachel during their normallly scheduled lesson time. Online lessons are conducted through FaceTime, Google, Hangouts, or Skype.

SCHEDULE:
Lessons are weekly, on the same time/day of the week unless we have rescheduled or we have discussed in writing another lesson plan. If the student’s lesson falls on a holiday, we will either reschedule or if no other day is available, resume the following week.

LATENESS:
If a student is going to be late they need to contact Rachel Menconi as soon as possible, to let her know they will be late. Lessons will end on time unless she is able to extend the lesson due to a late student or her schedule allows for it though please understand, Rachel Menconi would be extending a courtesy and would not be obligated to do so. If on the rare occasion Rachel Menconi is running late, she will always make up the time.

SITTING IN:
Parents/Guardians are ONLY permitted to stay for the first lesson and are NOT permitted to sit in for any other lesson/class unless invited. This is to promote good/strong teacher-student relationship quickly and easily. Also, many times students feel more comfortable when their parents/guardians leave.
Of course there will be times when the parent will be invited back in at the end of some of the lesson to showcase progress.

"I try to be as fair as possible to both parties when it comes to cancellations, rescheduling, lateness, and make ups. Have a concern or question? Just talk with me. I'm all about communication!" - Rachel Menconi

She was constantly coming up with different ways to keep her engaged and was always reassuring her to increase her confidence.

Taking lessons with Rachel has been one the best decisions I've ever made. She not only has helped me with acting but has helped me become a better person. I've grown to understand myself and I've learned and done things I would never have done. And would never have been able to do. Her lessons will not only help you perform, they will help you in your everyday life.

As a graduate of the Juilliard School and having performed worldwide, I want to share how fun, healthy and effective sing is possible with consistence and informed work! No matter your goals, lets build on the skills you already poses and confidence in your own abilities. Let's sing!

The key to great singing is enthusiasm, focus and some hard work. I have worked with students of all ages and my goal is to get you singing the right way and take you from shower diva to confident performer.

A LITTLE ABOUT ME:

As a professional singer and graduate of The Juilliard Sch
ool and working Opera singer, I have had the great fortune of training and performing with some of the best in the business.

Whether a beginners, intermediate or advanced singers looking to hone your skills in musical theatre classical, jazz and even pop voice.

My goal is a well rounded, relaxed yet supported vocal tone with a focus on breath, and feeling rather than by ear. This ensures that no matter what the repertoire, the situation, or the acoustics of the room, you are always focused on healthy, articulate and projected singing.

Taylor was the music teacher at CAP and Plaza De La Raza's Theatre collaboration in 2014 and I was one of the students who was lucky enough to work with him. I helped with sound effects and he always helped us stay in order and be creative while doing it. One of my fondest memories of being Taylor's student was when I was an understudy for a singing part in the production. It was a piece higher than I had ever confidently sang before, so I was nervous. All the days leading up to the performance he rehearsed with me and helped me hit the notes and be confident. I was still completely nervous when the show came along and Taylor was so helpful and calming, and definitely real. He got me to talk myself up and be confident and that is what made the performance so fun in the end. When looking for a vocal teacher, you always want someone who will make you comfortable and also be honest with you, Taylor is both of those things and I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

I've been a professional singer and actress for over twelve years, performing on Broadway in Lincoln Center's Tony-winning Revival of "South Pacific" and touring the county with Rob McClure and Anika Larson in the First National Tour of "Avenue Q." I have an MFA in Performing Arts from Savannah College of Art and Design, graduated summa cum laude, and was the only female recipient of the Presidential Scholarship for Vocal Performance. My BA is in Arts and Education from Hobart and William Smith Colleges.

I teach all levels of singing and am familiar with different styles, like contemporary musical theatre, legit, belting, and pop/ rock. As an actor who sings I think it's important to connect with the text and let the vocal technique support those choices for the most compelling performance. My passion is creating audition cuts and crafting them into bite-sized yet complete scenes. Audition technique is key if you want to be in shows because someone has to cast you first.

About Rebecca
My approach is both supportive and pragmatic, based on where each individual's skill set is right now and what your specific goals are. I've had the benefit of both formal instruction as well as a decade in the "school of hard knocks." Climbing up the ladder to earn my Equity Card on a Production Contact taught me a lot and I believe gave me a nuanced perspective as a performer.

Over 95% of my career is from attending open calls, including finding representation and my Broadway debut.

I continue to audition for film, television, and theatre, as well as perform in concerts and other venues. I write and produce my own work and am currently signed with Roth and Associates East.

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!

I have taught voice to actors and singers for over thirty years. My lessons are warm and relaxed to create a safe atmosphere for exploring and expanding the voice. In addition to teaching a solid technique to bring the voice forward for maximum resonance, your breath for great support, exercises for range and flexibility as well as beauty of sound, I focus on your unique relationship to the text so that you can deliver a resounding, authentic performance! My lessons are improvised and adjusted to the student's need as presented that day. I listen carefully and suggest thoughtfully!

About Carmen
I came from a small Iowa town to study voice and graduate from Juilliard in the company of great young musicians and even became a finalist in the Metropolitan Opera auditions. In musical theater I played the leading ingenue in Carousel, Showboat, Most Happy Fella, Fanny, Brigadoon, Anything Goes. I toured in The Best of Operetta, The Best of Broadway, An Evening with Romberg. I shot 48 episodes of Woman's Day, USA on USA Cable. Delving into acting at HB Studio, with Mary Tarcai, Lily Parker, Peter Flood of the Actors' Studio enhanced my performances and teaching of singing greatly. In my teaching career I have taught Shakespearean actors, ballerinas, private school musical stars, a current TV star, an Academy Award winner, and just plain folks who wanted to sing better. During a good lesson, we both grow!

Do you want to free your natural voice and sing songs you LOVE? No matter what your level of experience is, let's build confidence and have fun through singing - with exercises to release tension, we will connect to our breath and bodies to create a healthy and released sound. If you're a kid with a ton of creative energy, I'll help you hone it! If you lack confidence in singing or in general, get at me! If you have never sung a moment in your life (outside of the shower), but know there's a rockstar somewhere within you, I will find them with you. If you're an actor who is terrified of singing, but wants to be able to walk into the room with something solid, I'm your girl. If you are seasoned performer, we can spruce up that vocal technique and get those audition cuts up to par. Let's sing!

About Nicole
Hi there! I am a singer, actor, songwriter, collaborator, and redhead based in Brooklyn. Currently in an Off-Broadway show at New World Stages, I have kept busy performing since graduating from NYU Tisch in 2009 with a BFA in Drama.

I have worked as a resident artist at various music programs, including Willie May Rock Camp and Abron Arts Center, and have been teaching private voice with NYU theatre students and professional actors for the last few years, specializing in freeing and finding your individual voice through exploration of music you LOVE to sing.

I love working with kids who want to learn to sing, those who have a ton of creative energy but nowhere to focus it (yet!), folks who have never sung before but have always wanted to, actors who would like to improve their singing technique and repertoire, and more! If you play
an instrument and want to work on singing while accompanying yourself, or if you want to work on songwriting, we can incorporate those things into lessons as well. Truly everything is fair game if it is going to make you feel awesome. I especially love working with pop/folk/rock/contemporary musical theatre genres.

I believe in building confidence through singing, no matter your experience level, and I am here to lend guidance, support, and an empathic ear. Singing should be fun, not anxiety-producing, and we can work on dropping bad habits, loosening up, and freeing your natural gifts!

I was blessed with the experience of working with Nicole. I took voice lessons and training back in high school and had done chorale/jazz choir in college, but really hadn't spent any time on flexing my voice in 5+ years. I was anxious, nervous, and honestly very embarrassed going into lesson 1.

After properly warming up each lesson, Nicole provided concise and clear instruction on how to immediately improve my voice and singing quality. Her overarching methods are consistent with industry standards, but her flexibility and personable approach really made each session feel custom made to my voice!

She is not only a vocal coach, but a personal coach of sorts as well. If you're a self-conscious solo singer like me, Nicole will put you at ease and push you out of your comfort zone. She encouraged me to try all of the variations of my voice in many different styles to see what I am capable of.

Her positive feedback is concrete, as well as her constructive notes. You always know exactly what she is talking about because she makes sure you understand before moving on. Every time I left a lesson with her, my heart was full of joy, and I am finally starting to feel pride in my voice again. She is a fun, hilarious, and engaging instructor and I highly suggest her for singing or vocal training lessons of any sort.

I have been taking lessons with Nicole since February of this year and she has already made so many improvements to my singing as well as to my general morale. It's always so fun to spend time with Nicole! She clearly makes an effort to make sure she understands each student's learning style in order to help us reach our goals. Like i said, she is fun but also driven and will motivate you to work hard! The results will start appearing sooner than you think.

Nicole is an absolutely wonderful teacher. I came to Nicole as an actor, not necessarily to learn to be a broadway singer, but rather to learn more technical tools to strengthen my vocal abilities as a performer, as well as boost my confidence in my singing voice. In a very short time she has been able to help me learn to use my body and breath in an effective, healthy manner when I sing; tools that I have also been able to translate to my work on stage. I am constantly surprised by her ability to help me find new approaches to vocal challenges, allowing me to take on music I would not otherwise have felt confident with. Plus she is just a delight to work with, and makes you feel absolutely supported. I would highly recommend her to actors and singers at any level looking to strengthen their skill set.
