I'm a professional singer, actor and voice teacher living and working in NY. I work with students on building a solid vocal technique and developing healthy singing habits. Working together we will develop the skills required to hone your craft and help you reach your full potential as a singer. I believe it is never too early or too late to study voice. If you are looking to prepare for auditions and/or performances, we will work on "acting the song" and interpretation as well!

About Vanessa S.

Hi! I'm a professional singer, actor, and voice teacher and I love teaching my craft. I am a certified VIP (Vocology In Practice) teacher, and I offer affordable voice lessons in NYC, Queens, and Long Island. I am very passionate about healthy singing and firmly believe that armed with the proper knowledge and tools anyone can learn to sing! In terms of children, it has been proven that children who study music are happier, smarter, and more confident. I will introduce your child to the joy of music not just by singing songs, but in a course that teaches music literacy, vocal technique, and ear training as well. Most importantly, we are having fun while taking this journey! I can also work with you/your child on acting monologues and/or sides for auditions. This especially comes in handy while preparing for musical theatre auditions. Cheers!

I have been associated with Vanessa for 10 1/2 years; having met her as a Classmate in a Musical-Theatre Class. I was amazed by Vanessa's exceptional Talent for both Acting & Singing; her years of Classical-Training really having done her justice. Even our Musical-Theatre Teacher, a Broadway Star & Tony Nominee, commented that it is so difficult to compete with Vanessa's compelling performance! Vanessa exemplifies Symbiosis with Drama & Music--which is so INSPIRING!

As a Result, I have found myself quite often approaching Vanessa for advice on both Musical-Theatre & Drama since the time we were classmates. Needless to say, Vanessa is born for Musical-Instruction. She has always provided me with both honest and encouraging input. I especially appreciate her unique approach to channeling our Personal-Vulnerability into ART.

I therefore highly-recommend Vanessa for Music-Lessons. She will certainly evoke the best of her Student vocally, musically, and dramatically, and also develop in her Student: Symbiosis-with-Musical-Theatre!

As a student, I've learned so much from Vanessa. She's clear, concise, and supportive with a great spirit. I never feel like I'm being talked at, it's more like we're a team. I'm I've also had the opportunity to watch her work with children and she's simply wonderful. The children are having a great time, but most importantly they're learning and growing as singers and people.
