Elise J.

New York, NY

About Elise

Hello! Thank you for stumbling across my profile. I offer voice lessons in multiple genres to students of all ages! In addition to teaching privately, I have worked on developing curriculum for and teaching an after school music and theater class for under-served high school students in the Bronx. As an experienced nanny, I am very comfortable with and love working with young children! As a soprano trained at the Manhattan School of Music and McGill University, I have had the great pleasure of working with leading teachers and directors in the opera world. I have performed in various venues on the east coast including NYC's Lincoln Center, and the Brevard Music Center in North Carolina. Throughout my performance career, teaching has always brought me great joy! I look forward to ...

She is a joy to work with

I started taking voice lessons with Elise in August 2013 and she has just been an absolute joy to work with! I learned so much from her and she is friendly, positive and encouraging me when I was worried about one thing or another! I will continue to work with her for as long as I need to. She's great!

Builds my 6-year-old's confidence and celebrates her imagination

On a whim, I signed my daughter up for private acting lessons with Elise. I had and still have no intention of turning my child into an actor--no performance goals at all. I just wanted to give Sophie an outlet to express her imaginative self and to show her that creativity and storytelling bring life-long joy.

Elise is as pleasant as her picture. She has a natural warmth and 'speaks kid.' She is highly receptive to ideas and we are able to reinforce what Sophie is learning in school, like identifying the beginning, middle, and end of stories.

I highly recommend Elise for anyone who wants to give their child a unique, confidence-building experience.

Elise is so supportive and positive! She puts you at ease!

I am new to take lessons, and one main reason I wanted to start was to get my courage to sing in front of others and find out professional feedback if I had any talent. Elise was so warm, and positive. She gave me honest feedback. She is so bubbly and kind and really knows what she is talking about! She's honest with her comments. She also gave me great breathing tips and helped me warm up with singing techniques that really helped me!! She put things in terms I could understand. She was also very understanding when I had to reschedule an appointment and was running late. I am grateful to God for her help with my singing and I hope to capitalize on what she has told me so I can achieve my singing dream. She is wonderful! I highly recommend her, you won't regret it!!!!

Gio A.

New York, NY

About Gio

I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums. I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others. *** Lesson Details *** I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrument takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put some time into ...

Great, creative teacher

Gio has a great way of thinking outside the box and teaching my daughter each week. He uses creative methods to engage her and help her relate to the material and provides easy instructions for practicing during the week. He is patient and easy going which allows for her not to feel overwhelmed as she's just learning the guitar. I'm very happy with how he's teaching her!

Alexander V.

Tenafly, NJ

About Alexander

Both teaching and performing have always been a large part of my life. Even as early as high school (Kiev State R.M.Gliere Higher College of music), I was already conducting private lessons and directing the wind ensemble. And it was at the St. Petersburg Conservatory in Russia, that I received my Masters Degree in Music Education, Performance and Conducting. During the period from 1977-89, I held the position of principal Clarinet in the St. Petersburg Symphony and Kiev State Opera orchestras. At the same time, I worked as a professor at the Kiev State Music Academy. When I immigrated to the US in 1989, I pursued various performance opportunities and was even offered a position in “The President’s Own” military band in Washington, DC. Unfortunately, due to extenuating ...

I have had plenty of lessons with Vengerov and he can make a young musician 100x better. He fixed a lot of the problems in regards to my bad habits on clarinet. After each lesson, I felt motivation and progress as a musician. My family, and I saw major improvement after taking lessons with Vengerov as well, and I have listened to multiple of his other students play and was always impressed at how amazing they sounded. He is a big help in my high school Wind Ensemble too.
Vengerov is helpful, professional, and is absolutely 1st rate.

My 11 years old loves Mr. Vengegrov.Not only is he a multi-instrumentalist, but he's also a very professional and hard working musician and is very knowledgeable on any area of the music field. He's always willing to go the extra mile to see that everyone with whom he works can work at their best potential. And he's funny!!!

Mr. Vengerov is the epitome of a great teacher. When I first came to him, my skills were lacking in just all about major aspects- tone, finger/hand placement, breathing technique, music theory, etc.. After the first lesson, he had accurately identified everything that I needed to improve upon and started with the fundamentals to build a strong base; all the while keeping the ultimate goal of becoming a better player individually, and in an ensemble, in mind. At the end of each lesson I feel as if a significant amount of progress has been made and I know exactly what to work on and how to work on it. Mr. Vengerov is an extremely patient, knowledgeable, and passionate teacher that you can always count on to be reliable and accommodating. I highly recommend taking lessons with him to anyone who has an interest in advancing their skills, because nothing is better than a teacher that truly loves what they do.

Natalie L. was wonderful to work with. She really helped me with sight reading and tempo (which I sorely needed). She also helped me build my audition repertoire and play with my voice to find new ways of singing. I highly recommend Natalie! She also plays the piano very well, which helps when you're learning new material.

Emil V.

About Emil

I started to study the piano at the age of seven with Hrant Minassian in my hometown of Island Park, New York. During high school I continued my studies with Jack Chaikin , a graduate of the Juilliard School. I attended Hofstra University where I received a B.A. in Music in 1979. At Hofstra, my piano teachers were Blanche Abram and Morton Estrin. After graduating from Hofstra, I moved into Manhattan and continued my piano studies with Elena Wolkonsky at the Juilliard School. I also took a few lessons from Adam Aleksander, concert pianist, in Miami. So all together, I took lessons for 20 years with six different teachers! I started teaching piano when I was 18 years old and taught all throughout college. After enjoying a successful career in data processing for 22 years, I ...

6 Tips for Singing and Playing the Piano at the Same Time
Artists like Billy Joel and Elton John may make it look effortless, but singing and playing the piano at the same time takes time and practice to truly master! Understandably, it’s difficult because you’re multitasking by "playing" two instruments simultaneously – your voice and the piano. It’s easy to lose concentration on one, while the other goes a little off; if you focus on your voice, you might mess up the timing with your fingers, and should you pay too much attention to the piano key
