Find your voice with a professional singer
Find your voice with a professional singer Classically trained vocalist with experience performing across genres and teaching privately since 2018. My philosophy is that one's instrument is best learned independently of style, leaving it up to the vocalist to apply what's been learned to their own sense of artistic expression. Each lesson is customized according to individual student interests. As a teacher, my priority is to build vocal skills and confident musicianship independently of genre, to strengthen music theory knowledge, to instill proper breathing technique, and to reduce strain while preventing injury. My students' experience levels range from raw beginner to professional performer. I've prepared students for auditions, recitals, televised competitions and other productions, and actively strive to support students in realizing their potential as a musician.
About Raina W.

I am a classically trained vocalist with an extensive background in vocal arts and operatic studies. I attended Long Island University, Brooklyn for a Bachelor of Arts in Applied Music and Temple University for a Master of Music in Voice Performance. Aside from my formal education, my personal interests are more geared toward contemporary genres including blues, jazz, soul, funk, disco, and hip-hop. There are two music collectives of which I am a recurring member. I've continuously appeared in classical recitals and benefit concerts with the Lyric Artist of New York since 2018. I also co-produced and performed a virtual concert with El Can Collective in 2021, showcasing a diverse array of ballads, showtunes, and pop songs in English and Spanish. I am adamant that classical singing technique serves as a solid foundation regardless of the direction that a singer may want to take, especially when it comes to exploring one's capabilities and maintaining vocal health! I believe that my versatility as a performer enables me to make teaching music a fun, approachable experience no matter what interests my students may have. Students of all ages and experience levels are welcome! In tandem with customizing lessons according to individual goals and preferences, it brings me great joy to support my students in developing their sense of autonomy as they gain confidence, understand their potential, and build upon their overall musicianship.
