Fred is a top notch teacher

I took voice lessons with Fred for about 2 years when I was 11 years old. I remember always looking forward to my lessons with him. He was not only a great voice teacher, but such a kind soul. He always knew what I needed on any given day, and would tailor my lessons for that. Lessons with him were always a highlight of my week. Aside from his kindness and relaxed energy, he has a unique creativity in teaching voice. He is extremely keyed in to each individual's vocal quality and tailors his exercises for them. I would highly recommend taking lessons with Fred.

Deep understanding of singing

I took lessons with Fred Rice for one year, and it was perfect for a beginning vocalist. I could tell that Fred understood every aspect of what he taught me, and communicated those ideas in an accessible fashion. I highly recommend Fred for vocalists at any level; I personally guarantee that you will learn from him and get more than your money's worth.

Working with Fred was truly rewarding.

I was a student of Fred's for a year and I found it to be a truly wonderful, positive experience.
Fred learned what was important for me as a singer and focused on my voice as an individual.
More importantly, working with Fred was a joy. We had fun and I never stopped learning.
Perry W. Teaneck, NJ

About Perry

Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma to a music-loving family, I began playing piano and guitar at a very young age. At age twelve, I began playing double bass, which has become my primary instrument. Throughout middle and high school, I received numerous awards for excellence in both jazz and classical music. After high school, I moved to the Oklahoma City area and had the opportunity to play with many of the great musicians who passed through, including Jon Faddis, Wynton Marsalis, Byron Stripling, and Anne Hampton Calloway. Since moving to New York City, I have been fortunate enough to travel throughout the US, Canada, Caribbean, and Europe with such groups as Pete Robbins and Centric, Ryan Blotnick's Secret Mainstream, and The Paislies. Aside from my freelance work with various groups, I also ...

Perry is a great teacher. I had fun and learned a lot. I was only with him a short time because of my schedule. However, when my schedule changes and I can go back to my mandolin I would want to continue with Perry.

A great experience!

I highly recommend Marni for voice lessons. She is an extremely talented teacher in both the mechanics and creative aspects of singing. Often, she explains concepts to me in a visual manner because it is familiar to me (I have experience in visual art). I'm amazed at how much I've improved my vocal range/quality in a short time, and how much more comfortable I feel when I sing (both physical comfort and improved confidence). Marni is a gifted artist who will help you find your unique singing voice.

Chelsea aside from her amazing operatic voice, happens to be an excellent teacher. She has studied and trained with some of the top names in the business and has been able to incorporate these various professional coaching techniques into her own style. Chelsea has performed, soloed and auditioned and knows the drill. She is patient and offers excellent and professional guidance. I would recommend her to anyone considering voice lessons for the first time, or looking for a new teacher.

Jayne I. New York, NY

About Jayne

I have been a vocal health advocate and a music specialist for several years. Keeping your musical mind in shape and teaching you to be conscious of what you are doing with your talent is a top priority. I believe in giving you the opportunity to learn to sing healthy with any style of music or to play the piano with thoughtful creativity and solid technique. I believe that each student is different, so each student will be taught differently. We will work together to find your own musical truth. You are an individual and I cannot make you into a copy of someone else, we will discover the musician inside of you. You will be taught in an environment that is full of confidence building and positive feedback. Do expect to do some things that are out of the box. There will be times ...

We have loved our experience working with Jayne!

Working with Jayne has been a great pleasure! Her unique and very learner-centered way of customizing my daughter's experience in her singing lessons has been so amazing.

We have been working with Jayne for close to a year, and I continue to be more and more impressed with her holistic approach and the results I see in terms of my daughter's growth as a vocalist. Tessa has not only grown in her ability and confidence as a singer, she has also grown as a human being through her work with Jayne.

Jayne is very timely and professional and also very flexible to boot. I would highly recommend Jayne to other parents considering vocal lessons for their child.

Jayne is wonderful!

My son has gone to Jayne for lessons for the greater part of a year. Aside from being a wonderful human being, I will list all the reasons why she is an absolutely amazing teacher.

- She communicates really well with my son, AND with me. About everything from lesson plans to our schedule.

- She is patient, and kind to her students.

- She is always on time, and is very good about any schedule conflicts... and she always has things planned out.

- Not only is my son becoming a seriously amazing little piano player, he actually LIKES Jayne, as a person. Our time with her is always great. He is excelling in music theory and performance, beyond what I ever expected.

Can't say enough good things about her!

HIGHLY recommend Jayne for your child

Jayne has taught my niece, Caroline, vocal lessons for over a year and I have to say, she is probably the best singing teachers out there. Jayne has a "student-centered" approach to teaching so Caroline chooses what she wants to learn and sings the songs she wants to sing. Yet, in every lesson, Jayne spouts out gems of knowledge ranging from how to sing healthily to the essentials of music (reading music, understanding percussion, music writing.) It's more than just singing lessons, Jayne cares about the child growing as a musical individual. Lessons with Jayne are fun, interactive, and completely engaging. I know Caroline looks forward to them, as do I.
Nick D. New York, NY

About Nick

Welcome, my teaching philosophy is that a concrete musical foundation can be transferred across any musical genre. Having witnessed the misleading "strict classical" only foundation, I make sure all my students are introduced to composition, theory, jazz and world music within their first year. As a piano/vocal teacher I’ve been privately and publicly coaching for the past 8 years. I have a roster of students on the Upper East Side and have worked with studios such as Piano Power, Kidville and Acting Like a Kid, where I’ve privately taught over 25 students piano and voice. My approach encompasses combining technical exercises and stylistic technique alongside popular and standard repertoire of the student’s choosing. I’ve found that students respond well when techniques ...
