Learn to create your own songs and compositions in the most sincere way. Composing is connecting deeply to yourself. I have been studying composition and improvised composition with amazing jazz trumpet player Ralph Alessi and Grammy Award winner Gretchen Parlato.

About Emilie W.

Love to sing? I am available to teach private lessons or group lessons. My goal as a voice teacher is to help you find your own voice and sound in a healthy way. For the past 12 years, I have been dedicated to singing. I am fascinated by the multiple facets of the human voice and its extraordinary power to communicate, inspire and heal.

Professional singer and touring artist, mostly working on the jazz and contemporary classical scene in New York, I also have my own solo voice project. I use loops, samplers and electronics to build songs on the spot (Village Voice 10 best Concerts of the Week.)

I have a BFA in Jazz Vocal Studies and a Certificate in Somatic Voice Level 1. I also teach music in French for children. I am a student for life myself and I always keep studying new techniques to enrich my lessons and help my students in the best way. My rule number one is to be open minded and patient. Every student is different and has specific needs that can be addressed with the right technique.

I love to teach any level, from beginners to professionals.

Together we will work on:

- vocal technique to open your possibilities as a singer in a healthy way
- breathing and posture through yoga and relaxation exercises to free your voice and body
- musicianship: ear training, sight reading
- improvisation
- composition
- recording: record your own song
- repertoire (build your own repertoire, chart writing, arranging, transposing tunes)
- electronic device (loops, samplers)
- music toys
- audition preparation
- performance and stage preparation

I love to teach as much as I love to perform and I am always very inspired to meet new students and to help them develop their creativity with their own voice and sound.

Emilie is a great, kind and patient teacher! Very soon after taking lessons with her, I saw lots of improvement. I would highly recommend her for anyone who wants to improve their singing.

Emilie is the best. I have been taking classes with her for a few months, and I was a total beginner when I started, and Emilie was super kind and patient and excited to work with me. Now I feel like my singing has really improved and I'm finding my voice. It's been so great. Highly recommend working w her!

Emilie’s knowledge, insight and encouragement have been key to my growth as a singer and songwriter. Her lessons always bring my “best voice” out and teach me how keep it healthy and accessible every day. My voice is stronger, clearer and richer than it’s ever been.
