About Elise M.
I am a professional, classically trained soprano with a love for theater and the arts! In addition to being a performer, I also love teaching music lessons. My private vocal studio includes a range of students from young children to adults, who vary in musical aspirations and sing in many different styles, including opera, art song, jazz, blues, pop, and musical theater. My students have gone on to sing on Broadway, pursue music and theater degrees, compete and win competitions. I have extensive training and knowledge of proper vocal use, as well as a passion for teaching my students self expression through music. My students are given every opportunity to become well-rounded, performing musicians, and my goal is to give students the tools to become life long, passionate musicians themselves!Show More

Elise is wonderful! she cares about her students and is a patient and kind teacher. Elise shares her enthusiasm for music with my daughters and they really enjoy her teaching style.
Elise is really amazing,I loved her from the first day,she is very knowledgeable,she knows what she is doing,if you are preaparing for audition or something else,I am pretty sure she can guide you perfectly❤️❤️
Elise is lovely. Elise is a wonderful teacher and enjoys sharing her love of music. Elise is a perfect fit for my 11 yr old daughter who loves her teaching style- highly recommend Elise!
After reviewing instructor profiles, we rolled the dice (trusted our gut), and selected Elise to give private instruction to our 10-year-old daughter. I am so glad we took the risk! Elise is kind, patient, and encouraging, yet structured, prepared, and skilled. Our daughter was struggling with confidence and attempting to imitate other singers, rather than learning basic techniques to bring out the best quality of her voice. Time with Elise has been worth the investment as our daughter is maturing in her attitude and diligence about practicing. I would highly recommend Elise as an instructor for any age.Show More
Elise is warm, accommodating, and obviously very accomplished. It's really fun working with her.
Stoked to work with Elise, funny, energetic and flat out awesome.
Elise is terrific. Our daughter loves her lessons and we will continue with Elise. Highly recommended.
Elise is an incredible voice coach! She listens close to your vocal needs and helps you achieve the vocal aspirations. I worked with Elise for a little more than nine months and my range, tone, and technique improved so much. By far best vocal coach I've ever had.Show More
Elise is an incredible teacher, with real attention to detail and experience working with many different levels. She is patient, kind, and comfortable to be around (with a great voice!). I would recommend her to anyone.
Elise is an extremely talented, classically trained singer. She was very patient with me as a beginner and has improved my singing dramatically so far. I will definitely continue taking lessons with Elise.
elise is such a great teacher! she is so patient with me and she really knows her stuff!! i can definitely tell that i'm improving and she makes it really fun, too!!
I have been taught in home and on line when on vacation. I find Elise to understand my needs and customizes her teachings accordingly. She is flexible with her time and always willing to accommodate me.
I love my lessons with Elise! I did not know much about the voice prior to taking lessons, and Elise helped me grow my knowledge and confidence in my singing. She also helped me pick out songs to sing that fit my voice and style perfectly. I look forward to many more lessons in the future!Show More
