Ross B.

New York, NY

About Ross

Ross has been teaching for five years in both a school environment - in which he helped develop a performing arts department from the ground up - as well as private lessons, where his students succeeded musically and theatrically, having performed on Broadway, Off-Broadway, with the Rockettes, and on international tours. His teaching philosophy is simple. Everyone can sing, most simply don't know how.

As a performer himself, Ross is a singer, actor, and photographer who graduated from the prestigious New York University with a Dual-Degree Master's of Music in Vocal Performance and Vocal Pe
dagogy. He has performed across the country regionally and on tour, in such iconic roles as "Marius" in Les Miserables, "Jack" and "The Baker" in Into the Woods, "Roger" in A New Brain, and "Anthony" in Sweeney Todd.

Proud member of Actors' Equity.

I highly recommend taking voice lessons with Ross! I took lessons with Ross for just under a year when he was teaching in the Boston area. First, I was in an a Capella singing class Ross taught. In a short time, he had our group working together well to make good music. Ross is a very positive and encouraging teacher and could always zero in quickly on exactly what we needed to work on to improve our sound. I also took private voice lessons with Ross, and he helped me to successfully prepare an audition for a summer vocal program. As a private teacher, I always felt like he was always able to help me identify a couple of strategies to fix any problem I was having, so I grew a lot as a singer. He has a wealth of knowledge about musical theater, and helped me to really understand the piece I was working on, so I could make my performance come alive. I felt like he really cared about my vocal development and I learned many things that I will always use when I sing.

Ross is a fabulous vocal teacher! After spending months working with Ross, I learned a lot about myself and my voice...like learning how to use my voice as an instrument. One of the best things Ross encourages through his teaching style, is the importance of singing the correct way, without straining your voice. Ross is a great person to work with. He takes the time to explain concepts thoroughly and makes sure that you understand. Ross is very personable and makes lessons enjoyable for the student. I strongly recommend Ross for anyone who wants to increase their proficiency in vocal performance!

Roberta A.

Sandy Hook, CT

About Roberta

When I was 30 years old, living in Sao Paulo, Brazil, I seized the opportunity to rediscover my artistic roots and took a class to learn painting on ceramics.

A few years later we moved to Newtown CT and I got the opportunity to progress beyond merely painting on ceramic. Besides starting off from scratch with clay, instead of bisque, the scope of work expanded and today encompasses many styles and varying techniques.
I first showcased my work to the public at the 2nd Newtown Arts Festival in 2013. I was encouraged by the response, and shortly after this show was invited to join Connectic
ut Clay Artists an organization of professional clay artists who collaborate creatively and intellectually, and exhibit their art collectively.
Since January 2015 I have been teaching ceramic classes to middle and high school students at a homeschool coop and recently also started to teach at the YMCA in Danbury CT.
