Emily has been working professionally for over 15 years and teaching for nearly as long. Professionally, she has worked with labels like Universal and Sony, and with artists like Katy Perry and Billy Joel. Former students have gone on to perform on Broadway, national tours and American Idol.

Every student's individual voice and style is taken in to consideration when forming their training. No two voices are alike, and thus, no two lessons should be alike.

Emily will focus on helping you find the strengths in your voice and then finding and overcoming your weaknesses. Emily is a firm believer, that the voice is a muscle system that must be worked and strengthened, just like any other; and she will provide you with the proper strength training to achieve your artistic goals.

Emily also teaches songwriting and piano, tailored to contemporary artists.

· Singing · In studio Emily has been a god send ! As a professional and working recording artist in NYC... I was in need of a vocal coach who catered to my style. She taught me control and changed my voice completely. The best teacher I've had by far!

· Songwriting · In studio Emily isn't just a great singing teacher- she also gave me the support, confidence and knowledge I needed to turn my musical ideas into completed songs for the first time.

· Singing · In studio Emily Carlstrom is a total badass. I've taken a handful of voice lessons with her. They were so simple, yet so extremely helpful and motivating. She really knows how to listen and that makes her a great friend, artist and teacher.

· Songwriting · In studio Emily took me from having never really sung before, to fronting a popular band and recording music with confidence. She literally taught me everything I know and gave me the confidence to pursue my passion!

· Singing · In studio Emily is a real pro, and her blend of technical workouts and real world singing experience and repertoire is of great benefit to any singer.

· Singing · In studio Emily is wonderful, a rare combination of a great musician and a great teacher. She speaks with equal authority about musicality and technique, always marrying her performance instincts with an impressive knowledge of vocal physiology. After one meeting she gave me a set of exercises which, within a matter of weeks, generated a a startling improvement in the range, power and tone of my voice. I believe she may secretly be Mr. Miyagi. Emily is also innately encouraging, but knows when and how hard to push you. I could not recommend her more highly.
