Hi! My name is Pam. If you have a song in your heart , a love for music and a desire to sing, let me show you how you can sing your best. If you want to expand your range and to develop a strong voice with no breaks, I can definitely help you. It took years to find a mature, experienced teacher who understood how to use good vocal technique to help me express my artistic musicality.

After more than 20 years of teaching and performing, I know how to teach a successful vocal technique that works. I want to share the knowledge and technique I have acquired with you. Let me help you develop your voice to its fullest potential.

I teach a comprehensive course of study. It includes classical vocal techniques to improve range, ear training, breath control, vibrato, tone production, diction and beginning music theory. My formal education includes Leonard Davis Center of Performing Arts Bachelor of Arts Degree - Music Major from the City University of New York, Masters degree in Education, and opera workshops and private lessons from Judith Raskin, Soprano and Mario Berini, Tenor of the Metropolitan Opera.

Now's the time to make it happen. If you register with me at the Take Lessons office we can get started this week.!

Vocal Training · In studio

When I came to Pamela for voice instruction I had a limited range. There were lots of songs I wanted to sing but because I had a low voice I couldn't reach the high notes. Pamela showed me how to use breath support breathing and how to sing the vowels of every word so that the songs flow. Also I have more confidence in my singing now and I am making really fast progress.

I have worked with Pam as an accompanist, and have played for numerous performances in theater and with choirs. Pam is an outstanding performer herself and very good as a vocal coach with both adults and children. I highly recommend her as a teacher for anyone wanting to improve their vocal skills.

Classical Voice · In studio

Pamela K's classical voice coaching was hugely responsible for preparing me to launch a professional singing career. She taught me correct breathing, the dynamics of shading, stage presence, foreign (and English) language diction and pronunciation, and most importantly the TECHNIQUE of classical singing.
Her coaching expertise and patience helped me to achieve my goals of tone/pitch, volume/dynamics and stage presence.
Thanks to Ms. K's coaching I landed the lead role last year in the Musicale des Artistes Repertory Co. production of "Candide"
