Allie G.

New York, NY

About Allie

I believe that training your voice in a healthy way is key to becoming a successful singer! I'm happy to help you with any goals that you have, and we'll create a lesson plan that works especially for you! I teach all levels of students from beginners to professional performers. I have successfully prepared students for auditions and many of my students have been accepted to prestigious performing arts high schools and conservatories. I currently teach music lessons and musical theater classes at Garden Street School of the Performing Arts in Hoboken.

I've always had a passion for singing,
and I began performing at a young age in community theater musicals As a singer/songwriter I perform regularly around New York City with my band. While studying at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music I performed as the lead vocalist in several performance ensembles, including The Art Blakey Ensemble and The Brazilian Jazz Ensemble. These ensembles were directed by world renowned jazz musicians including Charles Tolliver and Adam Holzman.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very dedicated to teaching and performing all different styles of music! I begin lessons with breathing exercises and correct posture and alignment. I teach a method of vocal technique called Somatic Voicework which smoothly connects the head and chest registers through various exercises.

I encourage students to explore repertoire from pop and rock to jazz and r&b. Finding songs that are meaningful to you will have a strong impact on an audience and can be life changing for you as a singer!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide a keyboard at my studio.

*** Travel Equipment ***
At a student's home I would need a keyboard or piano to be provided.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in audition preparation for High School and College, and I have assisted students that have been accepted to prestigious performing arts schools and conservatories. I am certified in Somatic Voicework, which is a specific method of vocal technique that isolates the head and chest voices, seamlessly connecting the two registers through various exercises.

Amy C.

Weehawken, NJ

About Amy

I have been a voice, acting, and teacher of creative arts for over 25 years. My background includes ten years of classical training with Maestro Julio Berrocal, as well as vocal training through the Feldekrais approach with Marcy Lindhiemer. In acting I have studied with renowned Stanislavsky scholar Sonia Moore and Master acting teacher of the Strasberg Method, Marcia Haufrecht. I received a B.A. For comparative literature and creative writing at the State University of New York at Purchase and I am currently studying for a masters in social work at Walden University.
I believe, within al
l of us, Is the ability to express something distinctive and original. I work to help the student discover their individual and unique voice, weather it be through singing, acting or writing. I share with my students tools to gain the ability and confidence to achieve their goals. I empathize deeply with the challenges students may face when pursuing a life in the creative and performing arts, having worked professionally in those arena's for most of my adult life. I believe, it is the teachers job to respect each students individual process of learning.
My students have gone on to become recording artists, Broadway performers, movie actors, blues and cabaret artists and published writers.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice
I am an empathetic teacher, sensitive to the students individual process of learning. My singing lessons usually start with breathing and relaxation exercises. Vocal exercise come next, then when the student is fully warmed up, we will begin to work on songs. It is important that the student be part of the process of picking material since the more they personally respond to the material the more apt they are to be engaged in their lessons and the more quickly they will learn. After three to six months they will understand the fundamentals of breathing and relaxation and its importance to proper vocal training. They will have begun the process of extending their range and will understand the principles of performance in song.
Acting
As an acting teacher and coach, I tailor my classes to the needs of each student. I utilize improvisatory and sensory techniques to help unleash spontaneity. I also encourage the students to use their personal experiences as a way to access a full range of emotions. I enjoy working with the student on script analysis, so as to discover the underlying motivations of the character the student is working on.
Creative and Lyric Writing
I use prompts as a way to get the student writing. Often, I will ask the student to write for stretches of time without editing themselves. It is important to unleash imagination before beginning the process of editing. Many times it is the unexpected that is the must compelling.

*** Studio Equipment ***
home- 10 minutes away from Manhattan with piano, seating for parents
-practice studio seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a piano, cd/mp3 player and an large library of songbooks to work from. The student should bring sheet music of songs they want to work on and a recording device.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching how to sing rock, pop, musical theater, jazz, and blues without hurting the voice as well as method acting instruction.

Tammy Y.

New York, NY

About Tammy

I believe EVERYONE should have the opportunity to learn music, especially children, in a fun and enjoyable way! As someone who grew up around music (my mother is a music teacher!) I wish to give that chance to others.

I started playing the piano at around the age of four, and helped out as a substitute teacher at my mother's music school back in Singapore while in High School. I left shortly after to pursue music at Berklee College of Music, where I graduated summa cum laude in August 2013, armed with a Bachelor's of Music in Piano Performance and Contemporary Writing and Production!

Ove
r the years, I have had several private students ranging from children as young as four years old, to teenagers and adults. I have been told that I am very bubbly and friendly (yay!), which explains why most of my students are children. Everyone is different - and I personally take the time and effort to develop and customize my lessons for each student. I'll push you (a little!), to make you realize just how much you can do!

Music is an all-rounded experience. Not only can I offer you a chance to learn how to play different styles of piano, from jazz to pop to classical, but I can also teach you how to write your own songs, arrange them, and perhaps (if you like) record them! I am also familiar with Logic Pro and Garageband, so I can teach you to record yourself on those programs!

We are absolutely thrilled with our experience with Tammy. My two sons meet with her online to review the Mandarin language they take at school. The extra 30 min. a week of conversation and tone work is invaluable. I would rate Tammy a 10/10 as she sends highlights, a review and suggestions of study for the week after each lesson. If a person can have teenage boys look forward to "extra" Chinese weekly, they deserve a medal!

Stephanie is a great teacher. I don't have a large support system and she not only gives me techniques, tips, tricks, amazing break throughs in my acting, but she also has become a cheering section for me. Because of her and because of the amazing reel she made for me (she does one for all her students) I have booked a commercial campaign! She's awesome!

I was a student of Stephanie's in LA a long time ago but I firmly believe it is because of what she taught me that I booked films and TV job over the years. She is no BS, bt yet is very loving and supportive and sometimes actors need not only a teacher but someone to believe in them. I can't rate her highly enough!
