I've been a classical singer for 30 years and have sung leading roles with the Caramoor Music Festival, Glimmerglass Opera and the Orchestra of St. Luke's, among many others. Even more important than my experience, however, is my sensitive and expert touch with students of all ages and personality types. The fundamentals of vocal technique underlie all my teaching, but the individual touch and approach is tailored to each student, whatever his or her age or experience.

About Nancy
I believe in the extraordinary power of music to communicate, to inspire and, often, to heal. That belief inspires all my work.

My goal is to help you find the power to express express through singing your unique self. It doesn't matter whether your voice is professional quality or whether it's even "good" in the conventional sense. It's YOUR voice. It has its own sound and characteristics, its own particular beauty, and the world needs to hear you!

Whether you want to be a professional or audition for your school musical, NYSSMA, All-State chorus, college and conservatory, or whether you just want to have fun and hit those high notes in the shower, I would love to help you.

I'm a classically trained leading soprano who has had the great good fortune to sing masterpieces with such companies as the Caramoor Music Festival, Glim
merglass Opera and the Aspen Music Festival. I also have undergraduate and master's degrees from Brown University and the Manhattan School of Music.

But don't let the fact that I'm an "opera singer" give you the wrong idea. Yes, strict classical training gives me in-depth understanding of how the human voice works, but I love and teach music of all genres. My students include professional opera singers, yes, but also rock and Broadway-style singers, college and conservatory students, teenagers singing in their school musicals, doing All-State chorus, or preparing for NYSSMA, as well as adults who are taking voice for the love of singing, the fun of the challenge and so they can join their local chorus or sound great on karaoke night.

Above all, the most important qualities I offer as a teacher are the simple human ones: understanding, patience, imagination, kindness, enthusiasm, respectfulness and absolute commitment to helping you meet your vocal goals.

*** Lesson Details ***

I tailor my lessons to each singer's particular interests, goals and challenges. Some students thrive with a highly technical approach; some thrive in a less formal, more supportive environment; most singers do best with an approach that mixes the two. The important thing to know is that you will receive lessons that are specifically tailored to you. There's no single template.

*** Specialties ***

For advanced classical singers I have a great depth of experience and wide knowledge of oratorio, opera, German lied and French, English and American art songs. I also have a specialized background in "performance practice" baroque and classical vocal ornamentation.

For all singers, I am also a superb acting coach!

Spent a lot of time going over my musical background and getting to know me in general. Made an assessment of my vocal ability, potential strengths and weaknesses that seemed accurate to me. Proposed a lesson plan to develop my singing that seemed reasonable and practical given my goals.

I studied Opera for many years and have developed a solid technique that I train all my students in. All of them have developed with that technique!

About Danielle
I have been taking the world by surprise since the age of 4. I began studying at Queens College at 6 years old and was a recital pianist by the age of 12. I was a consumer of music, from the Music Theory lessons on Saturdays, piano lessons on Thursdays and voice lessons on Saturday afternoons, my life was filled with music.

It is to no one's surprise that I completed my first demo at the age of 13 and was performing for Queens Colleges audiences at 14. I went on the rank high in the NYSSMA series in both piano and voice. I also went on to study music in college and began touring with gospel troupes nationally. Since then I has done many workshops, Master Classes, tour dates, theatre shows etc. Too many to date. I am a sought after teacher for voice, piano and broadway singing.

Whether singing is your chosen career or just a treasured hobby, my goal is to help you succeed! I offer voice lessons to students of all backgrounds, ages and a variety of styles. I take a healthy, classical vocal approach to encourage freedom, ease and power in the voice. A student of Bel Canto, Alexander Technique and Yoga, I incorporate a full body approach to singing. My students range from amateurs to Broadway talent. I have prepared students to perform on stage, book agents, and to be featured in television and film. My younger students have gone on to programs such as the Professional Performing Arts School, the Interlochen Arts Academy and various conservatory and college programs. My professional students have performed at such venues as New York City Opera, Radio City, in Film and Television and on National Tours.

Lessons are tailored to each individual student but generally begin with a breathing and vocal warm-up, followed by some technical exercises and finishing ...

About Rebecca
**Whether you are seasoned performer or a an absolute beginner I want to help you reach your vocal potential!**

I have been running my own private studio for over a decade. Watching my students improve and make strides in their musical careers and reaching their personal goals is so fulfilling. I fell in love with teaching music while a student myself at the University of Michigan, where I received Masters of Music and a Bachelors of Music degrees with honors in voice performance. While there, I began my private vocal studio and study of vocal pedagogy. Since graduation, I have maintained a professional private studio in New York, while pursuing a performing career in classical, musical theater and new music. My younger students have gone on to programs such as the Professional Performing Arts School, the Interlochen Arts Academy and
various conservatory and college programs. My professional students have performed at such venues as New York City Opera, Radio City, in Film and Television and on National Tours. I love what I do and find it fulfilling to give my students the tools that they need to succeed and watch them achieve their goals.

I have performed in both the US and internationally on a professional level. As a performer I am comfortable in a range of repertoire: Musical Theater, Jazz, Opera, Pop, Folk and other genres. As a teacher, I find that my own experiences in performing inform and help guide my teaching style. In addition to teaching and performing in operas, concerts and musicals, I perform on behalf of an outreach organization called Concerts Motion, bringing live performances to audiences who are hospitalized, isolated or in need. I have also served as a Cantorial Soloist at Shaaray Tefila of Bedford, New York and the New York Area.

In addition to my more advanced and adult students, I have a passion for teaching children. I began working with younger students as an instructor at the Cranbrook Theater School. While there I taught lessons and group workshops on singing, acting and general performance to students ages 5 through high school. Since then I have worked with young students on a regular basis in both private lessons and working with music outreach programs in New York schools. In addition to building musical skills, I find that performing and studying music gives children a sense of accomplishment and confidence in their lives.

Teaching Emphasis

*Musicality
*Breath Control
*Healthy Vocal Technique
*Wide dynamic and vocal range
*Performance Practices
*Song Selection
*Children's Lessons
*Lessons to Improve Public Speaking and Speech

My approach to vocal instruction encourages a healthy technique bringing freedom throughout the entire body. I teach a variety of ages and singing levels. I look forward to working with you!

*** Lesson Details ***
The style and pace of my lessons are tailored to each individual student. I bring structure to the lessons, but work at the speed that is comfortable for you. It is my ultimate goal to give you the tools and the confidence to learn and perform music on your own. Most importantly we make the most of our time together for whichever length of lesson you choose.

Each lesson generally starts with a physical and vocal warm up. This is followed by vocal exercises (arpeggios, scales, and various other exercises that will develop flexibility and also breath control in the voice, as well as expanding the vocal range). The last part of the lesson will most often focus on a song or piece of music as we incorporate the technical and artistic elements we have worked on thus far.

Expectations:

Depending on the level of the student we will begin with the basics: pitch matching, simple vocal exercises, and standard songs. After a few months of lessons students should expect to have the skills to move on to more difficult vocalizes and advanced songs. All that we do in our lessons will have an emphasis on singing in the most healthy way for your voice.

We will work on intonation, rhythm, style, diction and projection. We will also do audition and performance preparation. I will give the you exercises to take home and work on between lessons.

We will have fun and learn a lot in the comfortable and energetic setting that I create!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Private in-home studio: Separate studio with electric piano, music stand, several chairs, music books, mirrors, speakers and open space for us to work in!

There is a separate living room/waiting room where parents/caretakers are welcomed to wait while their student is in their lesson. Parents/caretakers are also welcomed to sit in on all or part of lesson in the studio.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring music repertoire books that we might be using. I would expect them to have a keyboard or piano.

*** Specialties ***
I am classically trained, but have studied pedagogy pertaining to many different types of singing. I work with many singers of Opera and Musical Theater. I also have a lot of experience working with singers who are in bands and play instruments (guitar, bass, drums, ukulele, keyboards) while they are singing. I find this provides an entirely new set of challenges for the singer and feel that I have found efficient and successful ways of negotiating this. I also teach students of jazz and folk music and work with singer-songwriters on getting the best of themselves on their original pieces.

Rebecca is a wonderful vocal teacher with an incredibly warm personality that puts me at ease at encourages me to enjoy the practice of singing. During lessons, she explains each exercise very clearly and always knows the right advice to give when I am having trouble grasping a concept. She always inspires me to work hard to reach my own goals and her dedication to our lessons together has already led to amazing leaps in progress in my voice. I would absolutely recommend her for students of any level of training; you will very quickly notice the progress in your own voice while enjoying the art of singing.

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.

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. She gave great constructive feedback on how my daughter was doing and what she can work on to improve. I give her 5 stars! Thanks so much, Rachel!

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.

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!

I've taken many lessons with Stephanie over the past 2 years, most of which via FaceTime or Skype which has always been successful, and convenient that neither of us has to travel.

Stephanie is patient beyond belief, but also incredibly driven and focused in her teaching technique. My range has expanded, my tone has become warmer, and I'm an all around better musician with her as my teacher. The way she approaches the voice is both confident and very professional, and I would happily recommend anybody to study with her; beginning, intermediate, or advanced. She is a gem!

Whether you’re a beginner when it comes to singing or you’re an advanced student looking to improve your skills, I am the perfect singing coach and music tutor for you!

I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Music and Communications from Hobart & William Smith College. As a musician, I have been singing and writing songs for basically my entire life. I am a classically trained vocalist, and I am extremely comfortable working with all types of music, ranging from opera to pop to acapella. These days,
I experience great joy in helping others learn the fundamentals of music and song and working with people to improve their musical abilities. Through the years, I have helped countless students work on their vocal range, pitch, harmonization, melody and general performance techniques.

My favorite aspect of tutoring having the ability to watch as my students improve their skills and gain confidence over time. It brings me great joy whenever I am able to turn a new student into an incredible singer with the ability to impress others with song. I believe that music can make a positive difference in anyone’s life, and that is why I love sharing music with others. Additionally, I always work to make learning music theory exciting and fun for my students. I do this by incorporating stories and humor into my music and by utilizing the styles of music that my students find the most interesting.

I offer competitive rates for my services, and I guarantee outstanding results. If you have any questions, or you would like to inquire about receiving singing lessons, please send me a message, and I will return it as soon as possible. Thanks, and have a great day!

I am a passionate, energetic, excited teacher who is crazy about singing and helping students find their voice! I have a Master's of Music from New England Conservatory in Voice and Opera Performance, extensive performing experience in both opera and musical theater, as well as 2 years of teaching experience. I also studied Vocal Pedagogy during my master's degree, so I have a strong, functional understanding of the inner workings of the voice. Most importantly, I simply love to sing. It is my hope that we can share that joy together during lessons!

About Dustin
I am a professional singer and performer with two degrees in music and extensive performing experience. I have studied singing classically for over 10 years and have been teaching actively for 2. I have sung with churches, orchestras, opera and musical theater companies, and more. I also have a strong interest and education in vocal pedagogy, aka how all the little parts of our body work together physically to sing. I've worked with a wide range of students, spanning ages 6 to 30 and differing in experience from the earliest beginner to more intermediate or advanced students.

Most importantly, I firmly believe music, and especially singing should be fun! Singing is an expression of ourselves, and I don't know many greater joys than letting your genuine self shine through song. I am a very energetic, proactive teacher who is excited
to help students sing to the best of their ability. I emphasize hard work and setting goals, but never at the expense of enjoying every moment of music we get to engage in.

I would love to share my passion for singing with you. Together, we will work hard to create beautiful sounds. And of course, we will have the time of our lives doing it!

I have had the pleasure of working and teaching with Dustin for a while now. I've always been impressed by his dedication and enthusiasm as a teacher. He consistently was able to reach out to a wide range of students, K-12 from many backgrounds. He's very knowledgeable of both classical and musical theatre styles of singing. Dustin's ability to communicate the foundations of healthy singing to young singers combined with his professionalism and fun-loving personality makes him one of the best teachers I know.

I'm an actor wanting basic vocal training. I'm not a Broadway actor, I don't need fancy vocal jargon, so Dustin was the perfect match for me. He's approachable, funny, talented, and, most importantly, able to convey his knowledge and training in a way that's relatable to me. I cannot give him higher praise. Whatever kind of training you're looking for, Dustin is your guy.

Every lesson is for YOU. The time we spend together is time for you to explore your voice, your goals, and desires within music. I specialize in beginner/intermediate singers looking to expand their voice, repertoire, and love of singing. No lesson will be the same, and every lesson will be a shared experience in which we learn how your voice works, and how it feels.

Lessons include, but are not limited too, repertoire exploration, music theory, range expansion, vocal pedagogy/vocal anatomy, performance preparation, character coaching .....and much more.

About Shelley
I'm a professional singer/teacher residing in New York City with degrees from Indiana State University, and New York University with a specialization in Classical Art Song, Musical Theatre Repertoire, and Vocal Pedagogy.

Every lesson is about YOU. So each week we will take a look at your goals for the lesson, whether you are preparing for college auditions, school talents shows, a desire to work with music theory, or piano skills, this is your opportunity to explore. Everything is possible.

As a professional singer myself, I am constantly auditioning on broadway, off-broadway, and for smaller local and regional theater opportunities. I believe that as a teacher I have to continue to be in the field and learning as the industry continues to change. I have to be aware of the opportunities in this business. I have been hired by pr
ofessional opera and musical theatre companies, in additional to large choral works as a soloist, and have a private studio in Washington Heights.

Prior to NYC I taught middle school choir for 200+ students, of which I received teacher of the year in 2012. I also still hold a valid teaching license in the state of Indiana and currently applying toward my NYS teaching certification.

I look forward to hearing your beautiful voice and helping you to embrace music. Feel free to check out my website for any further information!

I was fortunate to work closely with Shelley at NYU for several years. She is not only an exceptional singer when it comes to technique, versatility and musicality but she has a true understanding of how the voice works and an ability to communicate clearly when it comes the abstract and complex concepts that are involved in singing. Shelley is also an excellent musician and a dedicated and fun performer and teacher who brings joy to all of the work that she does. She is operating at a level far above most singers and voice teachers in NYC and yet she is down to earth and will find a way to relate to any student. Anyone thinking of studying with Shelley should jump at the chance!

I met Shelley when I employed her at NYU and must first comment on her professionalism, poise, and understanding. She is adaptable to everyone she meets and always finds ways to bring out the best in people.
I then worked with Shelley for pre-performance of my one-man show. She was dedicated in assisting me with techniques on how to sustain my voice, projection, and also emotional depth through tone.
I couldn't recommend her knowledge and skills enough. You'd be lucky to have her on your side and in your corner.

Every lesson with Shelley was a blast! Her techniques are effective, and her teaching style personally caters to each student. In the semester I took with her, not only did I discover a completely different vocal style, but I was able to nurture that new voice under Shelley's instruction. Her kind and nurturing personality only helps in the process!

My studio - The Vocal Alchemy Studio - offers a holistic approach to vocal development in order to attain that unique combination of elements which will make possible for singers to speak their truth. Each voice is individual just as each path is unique and personal. Mankind has always been in search for the magic formula for everything in life: love, cars, business, health, medicine, spirituality, etc. At the Vocal Alchemy Studio we are in infinite pursuit of the golden vocal proportion, whatever that may be!

Through developed and often personalized vocalize, postures, mudras, mantras, breathe work and healing meditations singers are moved beyond vocal technique into what I describe as meta-technique.

About Alexandra
I am a professional Classical Singer. I began my career in Europe with Sintra Estúdio de Opera (Portugal) performing in modern premieres of many Portuguese Baroque Masterpieces in renown Venues and Festivals. There I studied at ESML with Soprano Silvia Mateus and later came to the USA to obtain my Master’s Degree at Converse College studying with Dr. Beverly Hay.

Living in New York since 2011 I have been dedicated to premiering new operatic works and developing independent projects. Some of my past roles include 1st Which in Dido and Aeneas, Laurie in The Tenderland, Mimì in La Bohème, Zerlina in Don Giovanni, Dina in Cries and Whispers, Mia in The Seventh Seal, Esther in Esther, Josie in Eintein's Dreams and recently Annina in La Traviata with both Regina Opera Company and Amore Opera of New York City.

I am also a Yoga Teacher, Ha
rmonyum and Sound Healing Practitioner.

I believe my work stands out in the sense that I am combining 3 different fields of knowledge (Psychology, Music and Yoga) which allow me see the student in different lights and teach the student and not the method.

I would love to have you in my studio!

I knew the moment I met Alexandra that she was an artist and teacher of the highest integrity. The way she spoke about singing even in conversation, the way she fine tunes every exercise for the matter at hand, her precise, colorful, creative descriptions, the ease, selectivity and discretion of her comments, her capacity to dispense the right information at the RIGHT TIME, and her ability to work collaboratively, make her the finest singing teacher I've ever known and a source of constant inspiration and motivation.

Alexandra is a fantastic teacher and I could not recommend her enough. She has excellent knowledge about the voice and helped me immensely with my technique and musicality. She helped me thoroughly prepare for my music conservatory auditions and I got the place! She arranged beautiful recitals for her students to share work and progress. Alexandra is a very generous teacher who love of singing transmits to her students. I am so grateful that I studied with her.
