Introduction
ATTENTION: - I'M OFFERING A SPECIAL: IN PERSON OR ONLINE, 4 1/2 HOUR LESSONS FOR 1/2 PRICE $20 EACH. WHAT WOULD NORMALLY BE $160 IS NOW $80. In person lessons must be fully vaccinated. People want to study singing for so many reasons. You've sung all your life and want to sing better. You'd like to be able to audition for a better chorus or a part. You were told you were tone-deaf when you were 5, and haven't dared make a sound since, or if you have, people have laughed at you. Those are all good reasons. My job is to take you wherever you are, whatever you hope to achieve, and help you sing better whatever that is. The lessons themselves can be done online, or in person within New Jersey only. New Yorkers usually don't want to come to NJ, but you could take lessons online. If you're apprehensive doing lessons online, please read my reviews. Quite a few of them are from online students. There's never a contract. You can try one lesson and see what you think. Your health is the most important thing to address in lessons. People come to me with chronic sore throats from strain, limited ranges, breaks. We fix these things, and you sound great and have fun. I don't let 12-year-olds sound like they're 30. I care, and I'm good. The human voice is the most wonderful toy I can imagine. As a teacher, I get to play in everyone's toy box. It's all fun. I love helping someone who thinks they can't sing on pitch sing on pitch. I love working with people who've sung all their lives and just hope people won't laugh at them. I show members of the chorus that they're soloists, and no one's laughing. I love working with beautiful, strong, healthy voices that just need a little help to fly. I love it all.

Rae is not just a vocal teacher, she's a vocal visionary. From our very first session, she recognized the untapped potential in my voice and has since dedicated herself to guiding me towards it. With her expert techniques and intuitive teaching style, I've learned to sing from a place of genuine ease and freedom. I've uncovered layers of resonance and depth in my voice I never imagined I possessed. Our sessions aren’t merely lessons, they are the beginning of a lifelong journey in voice and self-discovery. I cannot recommend Rae enough for anyone serious about finding and honing their true vocal essence. She's a game-changer!

Rae is so special! She doesn’t just teach singing. She teaches about breathing and posture, and so many other things as well that can contribute to singing but also well-being. Her passion is contagious and her lessons feel like self-care.

I’ve had an amazing experience with my vocal coach. Not only is Rae incredibly patient and kind, she also has a remarkable ability to guide me through moments of frustration with ease and understanding. She prioritizes vocal health to ensure that her students maintain a healthy voice in the long run. Also, she takes the time to focus on the basics to build a solid foundation of proper technique. It is apparent that Rae is dedicated to and passionate about her craft, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their singing skills.

These lessons have become almost therapeutic for me. While I’m strengthening my voice and my posture I also am learning to relax. I am becoming a better singer and just letting go, I couldn’t ask for more than that.
