I just began taking lessons with Nina and I already feel much more confident with the trajectory of my singing. Nina is a musical psychiatrist: prescribing the exact practices needed to improve the voice. As a vocal coach she is honest and direct and that is what i like the most about Nina's teaching.

Great first lesson with Nina! I am looking forward to working with her
Learned a lot in a short amount of time. Made me feel comfortable during my first virtual voice lesson. Session felt very natural and flowed well. Got everything I needed to do done and even provided me with helpful vocal warm ups at the end.
