Brenda B.

Wyckoff, NJ

About Brenda

Hello, my name is Brenda! I've been teaching private lessons for about a decade and have my B.M. in Music Education from William Paterson University. I was a voice major and flute/piano double minor. Although I do work with students of all ages, I specialize in working with younger children. I teach voice, flute, piano, and clarinet, and have experience teaching in both individual and group settings. I am constantly studying different teaching methods so I can develop a custom program that best fits your learning styles and incorporates what you already know, with what you will need to learn
in order to achieve your goals.

*Scheduling availability outside of what is posted is available upon request*

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether you want to play flute, clarinet, sing, act, or learn to play piano, I am here to help you become the best musician you can be. Classically trained, I also work with the styles of musical theatre, pop, rock, and jazz. I can teach you the proper techniques, posture, and breathing necessary to perform to the best of your ability and teach you how to utilize your full lung capacity to extend phrasing length and dynamic range. I will also help you learn to read and write music. Together, we will keep a log to track your progress lesson to lesson. This will also help you keep a record of the steps you are taking to obtain and achieve your goals and dreams.

*** Lesson Details ***
What happens in a Lesson? In order to train your physical voice, it is necessary to do vocal exercises, in the same way that one needs to train at a gym. There is no "magic key" to unlock one's voice; it is a matter of daily practice and muscle strengthening/stretching. So, the first part of the lesson will be focused on vocal exercises specifically tailored to YOUR VOICE and its needs. The second half of the lesson is the fun part- SINGING! We will work on any songs and styles that YOU choose. Whether you want to sing Rock, Country, Pop, Musical Theater, or Classical, there is a healthy and communicative way to sing!

*** Studio Equipment ***
My home music studio is located in the upstairs loft, with access via an awesome spiral staircase! Parents and visitors are most welcome to view lessons in the loft studio, or can enjoy the sounds from the waiting room below, as the loft opens to the waiting room area. I have a piano, speaker system, and microphone equipment and the student should provide a recording device (iPhone, droid, iPad, etc.)

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a keyboard. The student should provide a recording device, iPhone, etc.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Classical and Broadway style singing, but have extensive experience in Contemporary Commercial Music as well. I teach a healthy approach to all styles, and modify technical approaches towards the genre that the student is most interested in.

Rebekah is a thorough and patient violin teacher. When my 7 year old, daughter asked to learn the violin, I was not sure if she had enough of a capacity to focus, which is necessary for playing the violin. Under Rebekah's instruction, she has flourished; she is playing scales, songs, and reading music. After each session, Rebekah reviews with me the homework she has assigned to my daughter. Thanks to Rebekah, my daughter is developing a real appreciation for music, while enjoying the learning process. I highly recommend Rebekah!

Alexander H.

Franklin Lakes, NJ

About Alexander

Hello and welcome to my profile!

My name is Alex and I look forward to (possibly) teaching you!

My experience with teaching includes private teaching at Yale University and Stony Brook University where I taught undergraduate voice lessons in all different kinds of repertoire: a capella, musical theater, opera, jazz, etc.

I teach students of all ages, levels, and musical backgrounds, so if music and singing is completely new to you, no worries!

In our first lesson together we will go over your singing goals and aspirations as well as what kind of music you want to sing. Are you just
looking to become a better karaoke singer? Do you have serious Broadway ambitions? Are you just curious about your talent for singing? Whatever your goals and aspirations are, I'll tailor the lessons to your needs and wants so that you can get the very most out of our time together. :)

In our lessons we'll cover the basics of breathing, support, phonation, and placement. You can expect an increase in range, power, and vocal control, and correct any intonation issues. We'll also discuss stylistic issues and what songs/pieces best suit your voice.

Most of all we will have fun throughout the entire process!

If you have any questions feel free to message me.

---REVIEWS---

"Moreover, my attention was riveted by the young bass Alexander H...when he sang it, the foundations of the Warsaw Philharmonic trembled. It was truly an exceptional voice!"
-Wielkanocny Festival LvB Czasopismo

"Alexander H brought so much charm to Leporello that at times he nearly stole the show."
-Opera News

"The best sung was the King's plea to God for Iolanta's healing in the strong bass-baritone of Alexander H."
-Opera-L

"Bass Alexander H commands the stage."
-The Day Connecticut

"Alexander’s portrayal of the Count...was memorable. His resonant voice and litany of curses set up the final scene and marked the kind of pace and flow and continuity that made this production come alive."
-Shoreline Times

A Capella · In studio
I took lessons with Alex for two years during my undergrad and he was the best!
I was in an a capella group and looking to improve my singing and he did just that.
He has a great ear for voice and fixed a lot of my problems in just a few lessons.
He's also really friendly and made the lessons casual and fun.

I totally recommend him!

Alex is a wonderful teacher and has been so supportive of my daughter's passion for singing. Alex is a great singer himself and even though he sings mostly opera he knows all the ins and outs of broadway as well. My daughter loves taking lessons with him and she's improved tremendously over the past year. With his help she earned the lead role in her school production of The Sound of Music!

Alex has been very helpful in our lessons together. When we first met, we sat down and talked about what I was looking to achieve and what my goals were before starting. We started with the fundamentals to find out my baseline and the lessons have been very well paced and fun. I would recommend Alex to anyone.

My lessons were held at Alex's location because I did not have a piano or the privacy to do the lessons for an hour. We were in a spacious room with a grand piano each time.
