Let's find your voice!

I'm a professional singer with over 20 years of experience. I've been teaching voice for many years based on methods and education that I've acquired in New York City, London and Tel Aviv!

I've travelled and performed in over 50 countries and 5 continents and featured in venues like Lincoln Center and Radio City. I teach Pop singers, Broadway singers and also Singer-Songwriters. I also teach audition prep, acting through a song and mic technique.

Whether you're just starting to find your voice or you're ready to take over the world, I'm here to help you do it!

For online lessons- We will concentrate on building your singing technique through breathing, keeping a good posture and maintaining support in order to get those beautiful notes out while protecting your vocal cords.

In house lessons can also include microphone techniques (both for live shows and studio recordings), preparing for auditions and working on delivering a show stopping performance.

For traveling- I can bring a portable keyboard, unless you have a piano at home that you'd like for me to use.

I'm always here if you have any questions and will always be happy to help. Feel free to reach out!

Omer is amazing! He's so patient and he's already teaching me about ranges that I didn't know I could reach! So excited for our future classes.

Omer is an amazing teacher! Very knowledgeable and super patient. I came to him with minimal experience and he really put me on track. He also gives detailed explanations about the larynx and the vocal tract. Highly recommended!

I'm a beginner guitar player that likes to sing. My guitar teacher suggested I try some singing lessons--he said it would also help with ear training-- and since I had more time in my hands thanks to 2020, I thought, why not give it a try? I was nervous for my first lesson with Omer. I felt awkward going in since I'm not really a performer, but Omer put me right at ease. He's super friendly and patient. He's been great at going over different breathing and vocal exercises. I thought being remote might be weird for singing lessons, but it's not at all. Would def recommend lessons with Omer!

Excellence!
As a performer for many years, I have worked with quite a few voice development teachers. When I met Omer Shaish, I felt like I was finally upgrading myself as a singer. In addition to his charming personality, I came across professionalism, patience and lots of passion to teach and help.
Highly recommend to anyone who really wants to develop their technique.
Omer is the right teacher!
Best of luck !

I came to Omer with some problems with support and breathing; at that point, I'd been practicing by myself for some months.

Omer was amazingly helpful! He supplied lots of useful exercises, gave useful and encouraging feedback, and tailored the exercises to what I needed most at any given time.

Would highly recommend.

Omer gave me the best methodologies to improve my technique which immediately affected my tired strings, and even improved my range. Omer is super calm and warm and has the best energy in our sessions. I thought that it would be difficult to have online voice singing lessons, but with Omer it feels super natural!

I love to sing and I wanted to develop my skills, but I was a little anxious since singing feels so exposed to me, and I had a discouraging experience with another teacher before. But when I met Omer all my fears disappeared. He has the best energies, He's attentive and he really cares about my progress. I highly recommend Omer!

Truly an amazing teacher. Omer is incredibly knowledgeable and he's one of the most patient instructors I've ever worked with! He helped me a lot with my microphone technique, I don't lose my voice anymore and I feel so much more confident in my performance. Also, his studio is very nicely equipped and gives good work atmosphere.

I Love Omer! He is such a professional!
It is so valuable to have a teacher who's also has a huge experience as a performer. I've learned so much about the industry while working with him, and of course, I can feel significant progress when I sing.
He's a keeper!
Thank you, Omer.

It was such a pleasure working with Omer. He was very patient, caring and supportive of a novice singer such as myself. The vocal exercises he taught me on day one helped strengthen my vocal cords and enhance their longevity. I struggled with singing songs over long periods of time without becoming coarse. But thanks to Omer I am not losing my voice so often!

Omer has been such a rare find!!
He focuses on getting me in my best vocal form with good technique but also teaches how to master the microphone which is its own technique in itself, I’m so much more comfortable recording and preforming live after his classes, and my voice has never sounded better.
It’s so hard to find a good teacher that has so much knowledge but also makes the class fun and light!

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Omer. I considered myself a dancer that could hold a tune and singing auditions used to terrify me! Omer gave me the confidence and ability to find the right songs for my voice, improved my technique and really boosted my confidence, He's very calm and patient and made lessons fun, looking forward to a time when I can do some in-person lessons and keep working on my voice.
Thanks, Omer!

I've been singing for a while, and I thought everything was great until I got in a very demanding show and I lost my voice frequently.
Omer helped me to keep my voice healthy and not strain my voice while singing.
Thanks to Omer I did 10 shows in 6 days back in January and everything was perfect!
Not to mention he is extremely nice and working with him is a pleasure.
I recommend Omer to everyone!

Omer is amazing! I was suffering from vocal fatigue and he literally saved my voice by knowing exactly what to do. He was able to help heal my vocal cords while still performing. I never canceled a show thanks to him.
Also, he’s got great knowledge about in home medicine and tricks to keep your voice in shape!

I am a musical theatre singer from New York, an AMDA alumni, working in different projects and productions through long periods and using my voice on high intensity.
I came to Omer with bad breath support habits that caused me a lot of vocal problems as tiredness and strained voice, leaving me behind in my career and making my job frustrating.

Omer helped me slowly but efficiently to build my technique from the very beginning, stressing how important it is to have a good basis before aiming higher.

The process was so amazing, as he was understanding, patient and knowledgeable teacher, always made me feel comfortable, but at the same time was clear and strict on the correct techniques and on his training.

Omer is one of the nicest people I’ve gotten to know, and is very approachable as a teacher and as a person.
I am grateful for the process I’ve been through with him, and definitely improved my singing and my confidence on stage and off.

A five stars teacher, you don’t want to miss!(:
