It has been an amazing privilege to take singing lessons with Gitit, who is a renown singer with a rare voice and stage presence. There is so much to learn from Gitit professionally - her approach has helped so many people to grow as singers and performers. But, more importantly, the experience is extremely enjoyable. Despite her own unique talent, Gitit is humble and fun. She extracts the best in everyone gently. I, personally, am quite self judging, especially when it comes to singing. But Gitit never judges - she instructs with strong positive guidance and feedback. Results are fantastic and we always have so much fun! Learning from Gitit has been a wonderful gift for myself. I highly recommend her!!!

It is truly a gift to work with Gitit. Her background and experience as a professional vocalist and musician coupled with her high standards, creative arrangements, and exceptional skills at managing the interpersonal dynamics of a singing group (which is the context in which she taught me) make for an extraordinary learning experience. Lessons from Gitit are a life-changing experience!

I know Gitit Shoval for a few years now.
Her long and amazing solo career is certainly a big plus when it comes to her teaching and instructing techniques.
My daughter abilities, stage presence, confidence and technique were simply transformed after a few lessons with Gitit and this year I have started taking lessons too.
Gitit is very attentive to her student strengths and know exactly what are the areas she needs to work with you on.
Her Great spirit (always a smile) and engaging personality completes the perfect package. I would recommend every one, what ever level you are to experience the Gitit Magic.

If you are looking for someone who can help you sing well, and is fortunate to live in a proximity to this incredible teacher, don't hesitate. I gave myself this gift of lessons with her and it was an amazing experience.
on one hand, Gitit Shoval has the gift of being extremely professional, and on the other, she is lighthearted and funny. Her interpretations for the dynamics of songs and how to project the music is very intelligent, and overall I felt that she helped me bring out the best in myself.

It was a pure pleasure to watch Gittit teach my boys to sing. I have to say that I was in owe admiring the genuine way she connected with them and the efficient way she taught them complex ideas about voice and singing, She taught my current 18 year old voice and singing (I'm not sure how these are different) when he was 15, and my 13 year old as a preparation to an audition in which he got the main role in a musical. The stories of these two learners is very different as one had experience in music and singing and came to Gittit to learn how to sing in Hebrew and English and how to use his voice while it is changing, as well as how to support singing with proper breathing. This guy is now in a gap year sining in different languages in Europe. My younger child came to Gittit with no experience at all, no special tallent for sining, only with a deep will to sing and get a role in a musical. In a series of 7 lessons Gittit connected with him (actually that happened in the first lesson) and taught him how to be heard while on stage and specifically prepared him for the role he auditioned for (Simba). He gained confidence, and got the role. Thanks to this teacher this child of mine too is now in a singinig group of children who tour New England and sing in different languages. he joined in the sining also becuase he loved teh teacher who made singing seem as something that can be conqured in small comprehendable steps. She connected with him very deeply and he felt understood and envelpoed with confidence and warmth. Sitting there listening to the lesson from her kitchen, I felt that my boys are getting emotional support, stregthening of their choices, getting another adult that help them grow.

Gitit is phenomenal! Over the years, I've had lots of issues with developing my range (bass/baritone) and she's given me lots of useful and practical exercises that help me improve my access to the high notes without sacrificing vocal stamina. I highly recommend Gitit for both group and private lessons. She's effective, has a great rapport, and has the expertise to help both amateur and professional singers reach a new level in their repertoire.

I have been singing in a choir led by Gitit for 4 years now.
She has helped me make amazing progress with my voice and build up my confidence in singing and performing. The weekly meeting is something we all look forward to – with her beautiful personality and professional teaching – every meeting is truly uplifting.
We practice both singing and have vocal training.
She is a professional singer herself and is mastering all singing technics.
+Just hearing her sing is a treat – like a personal concert.

Gitit is a fantastic musician, singer, and teacher!

Over the last year I have been singing with a group directed by Gitit, and have benefitted enormously from the instructions, exercises, explanations, and more, that Gitit provided throughout the year. I have already asked Gitit for additional lessons while our singing group takes a summer break.

First and foremost, Gitit is an experienced professional musician, and with her I clearly feel I'm in the hands of a pro. Moreover, Gitit has patience, warmth, and a sense of humor, that make it a delight to be instructed by her! When I ask questions or have difficulties getting something, she tries different explanations and approaches until something clicks.
Gitit has high standards, and pays attention to the smallest details, and at the same time she is never dogmatic - no absolute, arbitrary, rules, just a highly tuned ear and a pragmatic approach to getting better.

In summary, if you are interested in honing your singing skills with a teacher - I would strongly recommend Gitit!
