Private Singing Teacher

Jason’s tenor voice has been heard on countless advertising campaigns and video games.

He was a founding member of the collegiate a cappella group, The University of Rochester Midnight Ramblers, and for several years, sang with Manhattan-based contemporary a cappella groups Invisible Men and Dobsonfly (heard in the film “The Rules of Attraction”).

A musician in his own right, he has studied percussion, piano, musicology, theory and composition, and maintains a collection of unusual instruments from his travels abroad.

About Jason

My teaching approach: I'll help you figure out your musical goals, and customize a lesson plan to get you there (ex: performance technique, music theory, music business coaching, musicology, exploring new musical genres, song selection and interpretation).

Dave
Jason vocally coached me during many studio sessions over the years. Not only is he an excellent musician in diverse genres, but he is patient, attentive, and communicates clearly. He knows how to give the right amount of support to help vocalists find their very best sound and style for a particular genre. I would recommend Jason for any singer looking to generally improve their voice, prepare for an audition, recording, or performance.

Fay is an amazing teacher that gives her student's the ability to progress and I can't even begin to describe how much I've improved because of her help.
Kevin
An amazing teacher that helps you progress as a performer. Piano has been such a fun instrument to play and amazing considering the techniques taught by her! Her lessons are so fun as well as educational.
Kevin
Fay is such an amazing teacher! I got into Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School thanks to her. Best Teacher I've had, she helps train your voice and goes through the vocal anatomy so you understand techniques such as proper breathing, posture, coordination, grounding, acting, diction...etc. I've been her student for about a year three years now and I have to say that my voice has improved so much as a performer all thanks to her! If you get the chance, at least take a class, you will not regret it!

Private Singing Teacher

Rosdeli has studied the Voice for 5 years at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary music. Her high level of musicianship continues to lead her to successfully sing in a variety of settings, from an intimate duo to fronting Big Band. Using highly developed vocal instruction methods, Rosdeli specializes in the development and control of the voice, focusing on techniques such as breath control, resonance, and posture. Being that no two voices are the same, Rosdeli listens to each individual student's voice and chooses vocal instructions for their specific voice.

About Rosdeli

Rosdeli is a Vocalist and Songwriter from Queens, New York. Rosdeli found her craft when she was introduced to Jazz. She has shared stages with artists such as Tony Bennett, Lalah Hathaway, and Wynton Marsalis & the JALC Orchestra. In 2016, she received the Downbeat Student Award for Outstanding P

Rosdeli will help you open your throat chakra like a flower, in the way it is meant to blossom. Being around her as my teacher in this setting is more than comforting, it is soothing, it feels natural.

Her methods make SENSE. The student receives immediate feedback from their own vocal channel. With her embodied notions of what she can hear and feel, she intuitively guides you into the direction of what needs to change - so you can open up more.

She is the greatest listener and she has taught me a lot with her listening alone. She is the only person I will ever train with again. Every voice lesson I had before hers was nothing close in comparison.

my lesson with Rosdeli was one of the best experiences with the music teacher I have ever had. She blends a keen sense of intuition unique for every student with a strong foundation of a wide variety of musical training and background. She is thorough , patient, and dedicated to the success of every student. She taught me
warm ups, how to control my voice, different methods of singing, projection, music theory, and ear training.

I want you to love singing! As a touring performing artist for the past two decades, I equip vocalists with proven techniques to help protect and preserve their voices. We will build a strong foundation with posture, breathing, pitch accuracy, resonance, and performance training. We will work together to help you reach your fullest potential as a singer and performer. I love to laugh and keep the lesson upbeat - I will also likely have a steaming cup of decaf coffee in hand at your lesson.

I'd love to hear your singing backstory. I got my start performing on my driveway with my sister when I was a little girl. Our driveway shows began to draw hundreds of audience until the local police gently advised us to move "Broadway" off the driveway. Soon after, we began a sister act which has grown to be our full-time career the past two decades. I received my vocal training from the award-winning former president of Sweet Adeleines International, Diane Huber. My sister and I have ...

My lessons are guided by the needs and passions of my students. Above all else, my teaching approach encourages joy in music-making! I have over fifteen years of experience teaching motivated students from children to adults of all levels. I'll give you customized exercises that will help you sing with ease throughout your range. Then we'll bring that ease into selections (Musical Theater, Jazz, Opera, Art Song, and Pop) with respect to diction, acting, and expression. Voice lessons release tension and deepen your breath, which is useful to all public speakers. I will teach you to confidently sing and speak with your own clear, expressive, and unique voice.

"Anna was my voice teacher for 3 years at NYU Steinhardt for music theater/vocal performance. I feel so lucky to have had her as a teacher. When I started, I had never taken any formal training and felt like I had a lot to learn. Anna gave me tools that I still use to this day for my specific voice. She helped develop a language through our lessons that made the concepts easier to comprehend. Anna was not only extremely connected to the technical aspect of singing, but also the artistic side. She always placed an emphasis on telling a story through music, and that was my favorite thing about being a student of hers. As a performer, she was always pushing me to know what I was singing about and why I was singing. I cannot say enough amazing things about her as a teacher and as a human being! Thank you Anna!"

"James is an amazing artist and communicator. He brings a wealth of experience to the table ranging from singing, playing guitar, putting a band together, recording, writing, to performing. He also knows the difficulties of living the artists/musicians life, as both he and his wife are performing artists. He loves sharing these incredible experiences with his students, making them applicable to the student's situation.

Although my son sees himself as a lead for his band, he comes across a bit shy and unassuming. James has been great at addressing this and pulling my son out of his comfort zone so he can reach his ultimate goal.

Also, my son was extremely particular about who he wanted as a voice teacher. I thought I would never find one to fit the bill. James was a perfect fit. I anticipate we'll be in touch with him routinely as my son pursues his music career.

James is a fun, experienced, talented musician, who makes his students feel quite at ease. I highly recommend him as a teacher.James is an amazing artist and communicator.

"I met Wendy Parman when she was the lead in a musical comedy, and I had a small supporting role. I began taking lessons with Wendy at the end of the play's run. I greatly appreciate how Wendy individualizes lessons to meet my needs. She is able to hone in on my specific vocal challenges, and has given me strategies and exercises to work on at home. In addition she has helped me choose audition songs and prepare me for those auditions. Her Singer's Salon provides a safe and nurturing space in which to perform in front of an audience comprised of aspiring singers of all ages and experience levels. In addition to being an excellent teacher, Wendy is a talented performer who understands what it takes to audition, play a role, and entertain a live audience or in front of the camera."
