Introduction: When joining my voice studio you are entering an international community of vocalists of all levels. Every three months my students from across the globe meet for a virtual recital followed by a reception. Some vocalists accompany themselves and some sing along piano tracks I recorded for them. Each student focuses on a different musical style and interprets their songs in their own creative way - be it jazz, musical theatre, pop, indie, folk, or worship music. My expertise is in jazz and songwriting, and so if the students are interested, they are encouraged to write their own songs and learn to improvise. ➺ ABOUT ME ∙ voice teacher for 10+ years, also an active performer and composer (sang for Lionel Richie, the Lord of the Rings soundtrack composer Howard Shore, and Dave Holland to name a few) ∙ MM, New England Conservatory and BM, Berklee College of Music ∙ developed curriculum for voice masterclasses across the globe (Panama Jazz Festival, Voice Teachers’ Conference in China, Bratislava Jazz Workshop etc.) ∙ taught more than 1000 remote voice, music theory and songwriting lessons ➺ YOUR FIRST LESSON When you first reach out to me I'll give you a call to schedule a lesson and learn a bit about you and your goals. Your first trial lesson is 60 mins long, half the original price, and taught via ZOOM platform. You don't need anything but your laptop with ZOOM installed. The lessons are adjusted according to your goals but typically, there are two sections: technical and practical. 1. Technical (20-30 mins) - We go over a couple of exercises tailored to your voice. This is something like gym and strength training for the vocal athlete you are!:) 2. Practical (30-40 mins) - It's vocal race time! We work on a song we chose together before the first lesson. Learning a song can take anywhere from 4 to 16 weeks depending on your experience and the level of detail we go into. After each lesson I usually give homework, consisting of short tracks I record especially for you to sing along with. The more you can find time to practice, the quicker you see the results. ➺ TEACHING PHILOSOPHY ∙ I believe in balance of encouragement and honest feedback ∙ Slow and steady work brings real results ∙ Voice is a part of identity, each one deserves to be treated with high respect and care ∙ Learning in a community is more effective and fun ∙ 98.5% of humans can learn to sing...and most likely you are not that 1.5% ➺ PRICING ∙ 60min lesson 2x/week - $60 • 60 min lesson 1x/week - $70 ∙ 60 min lesson biweekly - $80 ALL LESSONS ARE HELD ONLINEp

I was so glad to find Ester because she's helped me in all the aspects of music I wanted to improve. She has improved my singing technique with great warmups, she has inspired and helped with my songwriting offering great feedback and support, and she's even bringing my piano playing to the next level. I highly recommend Ester to anyone looking for a vocal or music coach.

I am a few lessons in with Ester, and couldn’t be happier. Ester engages you from the very beginning intro lesson, and very soon you’re learning a song of your choice and it feels great! I love the clear homework that she sets for practice, and the supporting audio recordings she makes between lessons. No need to search any further, if you’re looking for a top class voice coach!

Ester succeeded where two other voice coaches failed - she helped me conquer my fear of singing and completely transformed my voice. Ester identified the sources of my technical issues - even over Zoom! - and gave me individualized singing exercises. She could hear and tell what needed correction. She improved my technique and helped get my voice where it needed to be. In only two months, my own mother heard my singing and couldn’t believe it! I’m still shocked at my progress. I do some public speaking, and her exercises have even helped my non-singing voice. I play guitar, and have learned piano, but I struggled with my singing for years until Ester. She is a wonderful voice coach, and very professional and punctual. You won’t regret hiring her.

Ester is just fantastic! I interviewed five voice instructors and l chose Ester because she felt like the perfect fit for me. She is patient and she got really excited when l finally got the exercises correct. I like how she gave me homework during my free session. When l told her that l was interviewing other voice coaches, she said, “Well, l’ll send it anyway”. I also asked her for a sample of her singing (Can a voice coach really teach you if he/she can’t sing?). Needless to say, she sent it right away, and her voice is beautiful!💕

I like singing and learn myself for a long time. I can find plenty of resources from internet. They all seems very useful. But it always confuse me and make me frustrated at the end when I tried to follow. I found Ester about a year ago. At beginning I just want to try a different way and didn’t really have high hope. But Ester really changed my mind how a good coach can do. She is so knowledgeable and very patient. She showed me breath techniques, find my vocal range, pick the right song and teach me the way to understand the song and sing it emotionally. She bring my singing to a new level and extend my vocal range over time. I can feel my improvements over the year. We have student recitals every three months. I’m glad to sing my favorite songs and see how other students do. I’m so happy to have Ester as my vocal coach. She taught me piano skills as well. She is definitely the best vocal coach for me!
