Suzette R.

Monsey, NY

About Suzette

I started taking piano lessons when I was 4 and then learned the clarinet and played in the band in middle school. In high school I started playing the viola in the orchestra while still playing in the band. I had the best of all music worlds! In college I played in many school and community orchestras in places like Carnegie Recital Hall and even with the NY Philharmonic Orchestra! Orchestral and Chamber Music are my forte. I have been a string orchestra conductor for 10 years and love to put on a show to be remembered. My students have played at various day cares, nursing homes and sho
pping malls. We were even on the local Channel 12 News!

*** Lesson Details ***
A good foundation and a thorough knowledge of the basics will help you get the most out of your instrument. We work on this becoming 2nd nature and natural. Then we analyze whats going on in the music, a bit of music theory is covered. Then we concentrate on what we hear and what our audience will hear versus what we want them to hear and how do we make this always a little better. We go as fast or as slow as your individual learning needs to be. Of course the more you dedicate to preparing on your own with regular practice between lessons, the greater progress you will achieve.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I give private 1 on 1 lessons in the student's home. Students are expected to have their instrument, music, a pencil, and a notebook for keeping a practice log and for written coaching notes. A music stand is helpful. I bring a smile, lots of patience and a fun time learning!

Excellent Teacher

Mrs. Rivera gave my son private cello lessons every Saturday morning for several months. She always arrived on time and was always full of energy. Mrs. Rivera made sure that he understood the material and gave him several helpful tips. He did very well in his music classes. Her energy is contagious. My daughter would attend my sons lessons and it peaked her interest to the point where she is now playing the violin. Mrs. Rivera is a great teacher, she is patient, punctual and personable. You won't be disappointed.

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 will also help you learn to read and write music. Together, we will keep a log to track your progress lesson to lesson.

Gabriel W.

Westwood, NJ

About Gabriel

Gabriel W. ("Musiciano") is a fiery and passionate vocal instructor proficient in the fields of acting, singing and vocal development. A professional singer, actor and teacher with a BFA in Theater Arts.

Gabriel doesn'™t just possess a formal college education, but more importantly an "informal" education based on his experiences on the stage and in the studio in the real world. Gabriel'™s approach is direct, simple and to the core, getting straight to the heart of the matter: developing the voice from the inside out by breaking things down to the essentials.

An expert at creating vocal
warm-ups, vocal exercises, and vocal cool-downs and deeply passionate about psychology, this is your guy for learning to keep your voice in shape and having access to helpful insights and advice. Learn to cultivate a healthy attitude and how to create and survive a career in the world of performing arts.

With a kind and compassionate, yet stern and strong tone, Gabriel will work with you to develop the focus and dedication necessary to get your voice beyond what you even knew was possible.

*** Lesson Details ***
Regardless of the genre you sing, developing your voice with Gabriel's help will improve your tone, range, power and overall ability. You can expect to become a much better singer without losing any of your personal and unique traits.

His approach isn't a technical or mysterious one. It's all about re-learning the facts about how the voice functions best.

You can expect to clear away a lot of confusions regarding how the voice works and to take away the guesswork from the vocal development process.

If you want to improve your voice quickly, being guided by someone who understands how it all works and by someone who was where you are today and is now closer to where you want to be in the future is the best way to go. And Gabriel is that guy!

Gabriel's approach is quite simple, yet very effective at developing the entire voice.

"There are two basic levels that every singer must address. The first one is addressing the condition of the body and voice and the second one is addressing the functioning of the voice and body."

I - Silent Foundation

The silent foundation refers to the condition of your instrument as it is silent. If we are looking at the body as an instrument that sings, we first have to make sure that our instrument is in good condition. How healthy is your instrument? Is it well rested, well hydrated and loose? Or is it tired, dehydrated and tense? As you could guess, the condition of your instrument will have a significant impact on the quality of the sounds you make. So the first thing to be addressed is how your instrument is before it starts making sound.

II - Conditioning of Singing Behaviors

This is when we get busy. Once we have a well rested, healthy, hydrated and relaxed instrument we can start working it out. The goal is to condition our singing behaviors to be reflexive, reliable and strong. The way to do this is through a series of vocal exercises that will condition your voice to respond to the desires of your heart. Whatever it is that you want to express will be possible once your instrument is conditioned to the point where there is no gap between what you want to express and your ability to do so. Learning to sing is all about learning how to express yourself without barriers. You should be able to develop enough range, power, control and skill so that you can express your heart without feeling like you'™re incapable of achieving what you pursue. To achieve these abilities training is often necessary.

*** Specialties ***
ALL CONTEMPORARY GENRES!
Confidence Building, Warming-Up, Releasing Tension and Strain, Eliminating Stage Fright, Expanding Range, Improving Tone, Developing Vocal Power and Presence, Eliminating Doubt, Simplifying Singing, Strengthening The Voice, Improving Pitch, Building Stamina, Increasing Creativity, Performance Tips, Artist Development, Acting and Songwriting.

Once we have a good foundation any contemporary genre or style can be improved.

Gabriel is a very friendly guy who really understands what the students need to become a great singer. Having just taken a few months of lessons with him, I can already feel myself not only improve but also sing without any discomfort. He is very attentive to every little detail and is not afraid to make you fix it. He truly believes that everyone can become a great singer if trained properly and thus will do everything he can to help you learn. I learned a lot about my voice and bad habits that I didn't even know existed. I highly recommend Gabriel for anyone with the desire to improve.

*** 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.

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

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.
