Eliyahu, Voice Teacher
It was a pleasure working with Eliyahu. He's really professional, he knows what he's doing and how to bring the best in his students.Jan 12, 2018Verified
I could not have asked for a better voice teacher. Eliyahu put his heart into his teaching. He would always come up with new, fun exercises to get my voice to do what he wanted it to (like magic!), and I also felt so comfortable with him, and never EVER was worried to take risks with my voice in front of him. I also have stage fright and he helped me work on this greatly. He was able to give me wonderful advice on acting and showed my that there is so much more to singing than just hitting the right notes. Eliyahu is a wonderful person and teacher and I highly, highly recommend him! Best voice teacher EVER!May 2, 2016Verified

Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $60 dollars per hour lesson, $45 for forty five minute lessons, and 30 dollars for a half an hour lesson. I will sometimes add in up to five dollars depending on travel time in order to compensate for gas prices. And if our lessons will be in studios near times square, studio fees will be included as well.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I normally begin by identifying where their strengths and weaknesses are as a performer and getting to know their voice and who they are as an individual in order to help them become the best they can become. As the lessons go on, I spend most of the lesson working on simple breathing exercises and vocal exercises to get the basics of the voice. After that, I take time at the end of each lesson to incorporate what we've been working on into a song they'd like to learn or a song I assign based on what their individual needs are at the moment.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am currently training under many top Broadway and music professionals in New York City as well as taking group classes and masterclasses and constantly performing. As well, I have studied for some time at the Institute of American Musical Theatre and the Community College of Baltimore County for voice. There is no "perfect". Everyone can improve in some way. So to stop training would be your immediate downfall.
