With a degree in Music Education, I have maintained a career as a professional vocal coach, teacher, musical director and performer for more than thirty-five years, focusing on vocal production, technique, and performance skills for both solo and choral ensembles. My students have appeared on Broadway, in national tours, on television, in commercials, movies, and regional theatres. As a performing artist, my personal credits include Broadway, off-Broadway, cabaret, dinner theatre, church and synagogue soloist and numerous recordings. I have also appeared with Labors of Love, a benefit for Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS and was a featured soloist on their Christmas CD, Carols for a Cure.
· Musical Theater · In studio Elaine was my first private voice teacher. She truly understands what the vocal demands are for anyone who is considering a career in musical theatre and gives singers tools to use their natural truthful voices to their best potential without vocal damage. Elaine has worked in the business and it is evident in her work. She is a professional who truly cares for her students successes. Personally, she has provided me with a solid foundation of vocal techinque that has helped me to strengthen and free my instrument. This has allowed me to sing truthfully and share stories with audiences. I would always leave lessons feeling ready to go and sing for another couple of hours because of the freedom Elaine's teachings gave my voice.
· Broadway Singing · In studio Both my children have studied with Elaine for over 23 years and I would highly recommend her for children starting out to adults wishing to either perform or just be a better singer for fun. Elaine is fantastic with working with professional singers looking to sharpen their vocal skills too or students applying to college. Elaine saw potential in both my children who did perform professionally for several years. Elaine is warm, friendly and brings out the best of not only your singing but your presentation as well.
· Vocal Training · In studio Such a wonderful teacher! She has always been the best help at preparing me to be audition ready with a song and she knows exactly what to say to me to help me get those hard notes out. When I trained with her my voice had grown tremendously. And theres never a dull lesson with Elaine!
