"2SMOOTH" SAY'S IT ALL!! With your writing, your arrangement, and your choreography . You have done it all. First of all, I want to thank you dear God for loving me and for this gift. Secondly, To My Mentor, Mr. Amorosa. Thank you for teaching me. I've learned a lot from you and inspired me to strive even more and brought out the best in what I do. Joining the group, 2Smooth has been a pleasure. He has been a good coach, and a good advisor throughout my life. Thirdly, During that time, Mr. Amorosa has coached me and trained me in voice lessons. He has been a patient man, and still is, till this very day. He has put me on the right track, and has shown me the difference, between Philly Sound, combined With R&B barbershop harmony. I've never known what 1/2 notes were, until Mr. Amorosa showed me. I've learned a great deal from him. He has the patient of Job. He stomachs a lot, never losing his cool. Most of all, Words are not enough to express my gratitude towards you. I am truly overwhelmed by the love and support and generosity you have shown me. Thank you so much. Jose A Hernandez Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jan is truly an amazing teacher, she is fun and energetic, supportive and very knowledgeable. I brought my wife for a beginner voice lesson (she had never taken one before) as a surprise birthday present, and Jan really made it a birthday to remember! Jan taught my wife how to use her voice as a musical instrument, and encouraged her to sing her heart out. Grazie mille!
We connected right away and Im thrilled to begin working with her. Overall, I had an outstanding experience.
I've now had two lessons with Hannah at the Pop Vocal Academy and I'm really loving it. I'm already starting to see improvement, and I'm having my third lesson tomorrow. She is very encouraging and supporting, and really knows what she is talking about. I've been taking classical lessons for years, and it's really something different taking pop lessons, but Hannah is definitely making it easier for me to make the most of my voice within the pop genre. I definitely recommend taking lessons with the Pop Vocal Academy.
Bourque was great to work with. She creates a very relaxed environment and helps you find the voice you never knew you had. I never thought I was able to sing, but after a few lessons with her, I realized that I actually had a decent voice hidden away!
Thumbtack has given my studio the "Best of 2015 award" for Voice lessons in New York City. Reach your vocal potential! No matter what style of music you sing, breath and resonance must work together to create the desired sound. My studio includes professional performers and serious hobby enthusiasts. (What do I mean by serious? Taking at least two lessons monthly.) Talent is a given, but reaching your vocal potential requires work, discipline and regular study. Though I am versed in the latest scientific advances and trends in vocal pedagogy, my teaching style is based on the Lamperti Italian bel canto techniques of balanced registration. To sing well, a singer must know how to play their body on command. Balancing breath management with resonance usage, and making necessary adjustments in registration produces the desired vocal sound. As a teacher, my goal is to provide every singer with the proper tools for producing the desired sound in the healthiest way possible. The constant is always breath balanced against the resonance usage. When your breath is freed correctly, you are free to communicate efficiently in song. All new students are evaluated to determine their current level of ability, correct vocal classification, current and potential range, and preferred learning modalities. All areas of voice performance are addressed including breath management, registration, resonance, vocal health, repertoire suggestions, diction, and performance preparation. Basic musicianship is addressed if needed. This includes how to read a musically notated vocal line, understanding time signatures and rhythm, understanding the differences in style, learning how to inform a lyric, mic techniques (where applicable), and suggestions for appropriate repertoire. Though most of my students see immediate improvement, learning to master your voice is a journey that stretches over the course of your entire career. It boils down to "practice, practice, practice" which includes performing along the way. I look forward to helping you on your vocal journey. Please note: Internet lessons are available via OOVOO (ID is "singnow") to clients I have seen in person PRIOR to the Internet. This has provided solutions to my X Factor clients while they taped in LA and to music theater pros during extended out-of-town tours. I only recommend Internet lessons as a Band-Aid solution if the client cannot appear in the studio. VoIP technology is not a substitute for the sound produced in person and is also unreliable (think about how often a live feed is interrupted while you watch remote broadcasts). Here's a note for parents: I am very experienced in preparing students for performing arts university programs and for high school auditions. These programs are very competitive. The longer your child has studied, the better his/her chance to win a place. I recommend students begin studying weekly at least one month in advance of the audition date for high school auditions and ideally at the start of junior year (or before) for college preparation. Vocal study counts as a "soft" in college entrance consideration when the student has participated in vocal solo festivals like NYSSMA. Testimonials are as follows: "As a teacher, Maria Fattore is caring and perceptive. Most importantly, she is able to supply her students with technical help that goes well beyond imagery into concrete, intelligible technical adjustments to solve vocal issues." -- Ira Siff, The Metropolitan Opera "Working with Maria Fattore is the fastest way from point A to point B. Every time I work with her, I find more vocal freedom. She is the best in the city!" -- Babs Winn, AEA "In a nutshell, Maria not only teaches amazing technique, but she also gives you the skills to survive a long run." -- Kenny Wade Marshall, AEA "Maria is amazing! She gave me a technique, and our work landed me on X Factor. She's one of the rare ones that actually knows what she's talking about. She will make you better! I love working with her." -- Al Calderon, AEA "Maria's interactive teaching is efficient, and her feedback addresses my vocal issues scientifically and visually. The homework assignments are tailor-made for me and have helped accelerate my progress, improve my tone and range, and given me more vocal freedom. She is a solid, responsible and knowledgeable educator." -- L. Wang, Teacher "My 14-year-old daughter is preparing for fall auditions, and we were referred to Maria. My daughter learned more in one session with Maria than she had learned after 20 sessions with another teacher. It was an easy decision to make a change." -- Virginia B., Parent
I have known Michael for a little over a year now, and I never cease to be amazed by his talent as a vocalist and teacher. I worked with Michael in Curious George Live! where he acted as our vocal captain (essentially our musical director) on tour. He lead our warm ups and cleaned songs. He worked with us on harmonies and blending. He has a keen ability to sense what needs to change in order to make a song sound better and convey it's message. Michael has worked with all levels of talent and is a capable teacher for beginners as well as seasoned professionals. He is very funny and fun to work with. He keeps the environment light while remaining ever-professional. I highly recommend working with Michael, whether it be for ongoing voice lessons or audition preparation. You won't be disappointed.
Dr. Kathleen Weber is an excellent teacher for students of all achievement levels. Her technique is solid, encouraging a natural and individual sound for her students. She has command of a vast repertoire and knows how to teach everything she knows how to do. She has one of the most beautiful soprano voices I've ever heard. Someone once said that "a voice has three good days in a month, the rest is technique." Dr. Weber's technique is logical, natural and comprehensive. In studying with her I received a good foundation that has paved the way for me from Broadway and the Met. to Film and Television. I highly recommend her! Active New York Actor
I've taken voice lessons for nearly 10 years and as a result have had a number of different teachers, but I feel my voice is the strongest and most stable it has ever been after studying with Katie. She hits the nail on the head with her visuals - unlike other instruments, you can't see what you're playing when you sing, so being able to understand what your teacher is getting at is crucial to the process. Katie far surpasses any teacher I've had in this way. Aside from her solid vocal and teaching skills, she's a joy to be around. Voice lessons are a much more pleasant experience when your teacher makes you feel comfortable enough to laugh at your own mistakes, brush them off, and go for it again. There is literally no judgment in the room - only encouragement and construction. I absolutely would (and have in the past) recommend Katie to beginner and advanced students.
I offer voice lessons for the first-time singer or the expert refining their craft. Through careful observation and application of advanced techniques backed by science, I can help you free your voice, expand your range and sing any style! In addition to voice lessons, I teach acting for the student who wants to bring more confidence to their performance and enhance their craft. Learning to act isn't exclusively for performers; acting and presentation skills are crucial for a sales person, business entrepreneur or student who needs to address large groups of people confidently and effectively. Another service offered is helping the prospective college student get into the right musical theater or classical program. Applying to colleges alone can be a grueling and stressful process, add on top of that putting together your repertoire and audition! I can help guide a client successfully through the rigorous process of picking the right colleges, repertoire selection and audition process.
My vocal lessons are designed to open up vocal registers, extend the vocal range, iron-out break areas, and build dynamics within the voice. I believe everyone has the ability to sing, it's only that some people have more developed vocal chord coordination than others. I have seen time and time again students come into class who classify themselves, or have be classified as tone-def from past teachers, only to develop freedom, range and great tone in just a few months - it just takes diagnostic focused practice and patients. My classes are held at my studio in Hell's Kitchen New York City (or online via Skype and FaceTime). In my relaxing and comfortable setting, we'll work one-on-one to build your voice by first diagnosing what's blocking you from achieving vocal excellence, then we'll go ahead and design a specific vocal exercise program to suit.

Lessons were so much fun and I can believe how quickly I improved. I wish I had found Lori years ago!
My daughter has grown in both talent and confidence in the short time she has been going to see Beth. We couldn't be more pleased with her progress!
Although I am a beginner, Jeanette taught me how to improve my voice logically with a great patience. She was cheerful gentle and really kind. It was truly enjoyable learning how to sing from her. After a came back to Tokyo I found my song improved owning what she had taught me. I would like to express my gratitude for her! Thank you so much Jeanette!!! :-)
ABOUT THE STUDIO: The Menconi Performance Studio: Where you not only learn healthy technique, but how to become a self-sufficient artist. We specialize in Bel Canto voice technique for the modern singer. Each student can sing all genres without sounding too classical and without loosing their voice while singing for long periods of time. We prepare our students for the real world with up to date training and both performance opportunities and showcases in front of industry professionals when students are ready. Students come from all walks of life. All ages and levels welcome! STUDENT ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Rachel's students have gone on concert/theater tours (national, regional), released albums, are in bands, have been accepted into performing arts programs and schools (high schools and colleges), have been cast in regional/Off-Off-Broadway/Off-Broadway Theatre, movies (Noah, The Wolf Of Wall Street, Top Five), commercials (JC Penny, Sleepy's, Miller Lite, Bud Lite, Beats By Dre, Optimum Business, NFL Network, Food Network Promo) music videos, and on TV (Best Time Ever! With Neil Patrick Harris, Royal Pains, Smash, The Mysteries Of Laura, 30 Rock, The Good Wife, Law and Order: SVU, E!'s Songbyrd, & NBC's The Voice competition). WHAT CAN RACHEL DO FOR YOU? Rachel customizes each singing and acting lesson with each student's individual goals and learning styles in mind. Whether working in a private lesson or working with a group class (small by design), Rachel is able to focus on each student's individual needs & develop their skills (singing, acting, & performance) at a comfortable pace. She challenges each person without intimidation. BY THE TIME STUDENTS GRADUATE FROM LESSONS THEY: 1. Gain a lifelong, solid, consistent, and healthy technique that they can always count on in practice and performance. 2. Gain specific technical and personal notes in a notebook and/or computer file that is organized and always accessible for review. 3. Gain artistry, performance skills, and a strong voice that will look/sound authentic; Singers will sound appropriate to whatever style of music they are singing. (No fake sound or look.) Actors will just be in the moment and truthful whether they are on stage or in front of the camera. 4. Gain the confidence to always put on a great performance. 5. Gain focus and a more productive mind frame. 6. Become self-sufficient by knowing how to assess a problem and then fix it without creating a new issue. I work with all students to first gain a consistent/healthy technique and then gain consistent performance and business skills so they have the right tools to become successful. Owner/Teacher: Rachel Menconi RACHEL MENCONI'S BIO: Rachel is a member of SAG-AFTRA, NATS (The National Association of Teachers of Singing; certified), VASTA (Voice And Speech Trainers Association), NARAS (The Grammy Awards), NJMEA (New Jersey Music Educators Association), NAfMe (National Association of Music Education), NYSSMA (New York State School Music Association), NAMTA (North American Music Teachers Association), MAC (Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs), BMI, and The NJ Theatre Alliance. She has been teaching Bel Canto singing technique for the modern singer and Stella Adler-Stanislavsky-Chekhov-Meisner acting technique for all mediums for 14+ years to children, teens, and adults. Rachel has trained at The Hages Music Studio under a master teacher for 20+ years in the Bel Canto singing technique for all genres, studied at The Stella Adler Studio of Acting in NYC as well learned from some of NYC's best composers, casting directors, and instructors such as Judy Hages (Bel canto voice), Dave Clemmons (Dave Clemmons Casting), Benj Paseck (composer), Justin Paul (composer), Erin Dilly, Stephen Buntrock, and many more. Rachel has also been a recording artist for 10+ years and is currently working on her new original album. Her first album called "Just Meant To Be" is available on itunes and the music videos of her two original singles "Don't Even Try" and "You Will Love On" are on youtube, Other credits include commercials, films, TV shows (One Tree Hill, AMC, FoodNetwork), music videos (including Rachel's single "Don't Even Try"), & numerous stage credits (Off-Broadway/NYC Theatre). Rachel most recently was seen in the reading of a new play "Vanishing Son" by Peter Gil-Sheridan performed in NYC. She is also a songwriter (16+ years), scriptwriter, and director. Rachel has been performing for 20+ years, has performed in front of sold out crowds, and has been honored with many standing ovations. Other honors include magazine covers, featured articles, singing to thousands of people, studio recordings/albums, originated the role of "Antigone" in "Oedipus: The Musical", 2002 Helen Hayes Nomination for" Outstanding Vocal Performance in a Musical" ("Miss Adelaide" in "Guys And Dolls"), & 2008 finalist for NYC Singing Idol Competition. Rachel has also been fortunate to have worked & performed with many people in the business including Grammy-Tony-Emmy Award Winners/Nominees. THE ULTIMATE GOAL: Rachel's goal is to not only make all her students the best performers, actors, and singers they can be, but to also give them all the proper tools they need to become self-sufficient. Being a self-sufficient singer/performer/actor just means that they can assess a problem on their own and then know how to fix it without creating a new problem, If the student can master that, then they are ready to graduate from lessons. Of course, this takes many years to master and doesn't happen overnight. It takes time and dedication. HOW RACHEL TEACHES VOICE: Rachel understands that each student learns differently. She is able to customize each lesson with each student's individual goals and learning styles in mind. Whether working in a private lesson or working with a group class (small by design), Rachel is able to focus on each student's individual needs & develop their skills (singing, acting, & performance) at a comfortable pace. She challenges each person without intimidation. Rachel is also a performer, so she understands her students every step of the way because she has been there too. Even the best performers get nervous. Rachel teaches her students the tricks of getting rid of stage fright and ways to always have a great performance even when life gets you down. Rachel also prepares a selected group of students for a performance in NJ and/or in NYC when they are ready. Specialties include: Bel Canto Singing Technique (Sing all genres), Master singing with a healthy "Mix" (Light and edgy), Legit, More Range, Vocal flexibility, better breath control, Sound like "you" but better "you", Stella Adler, Stanislavsky, Chekhov, & Meisner Acting Technique for Theatre/Camera, Performance Skills, Stage Presence, Songwriting, Mic technique (while performing live and in recording studio), & Musical Theatre. Rachel is a voice teacher, not a pianist or vocal coach. The only time she uses a piano/keyboard in the lesson is to warm up the voice or to teach a student the melody of a song. Rachel doesn't use the piano while teaching voice technique because the brain can only do one task at a time efficiently, Rachel wouldn't be able to give her full attention to her students while reading sheet music and playing at the same time. Her students sing with karaoke/instrumental tracks or sing to the original singer on tape, cd, ipod, mp3 player, ipad, tablet, iphone, smartphone, or advanced voice students are allowed to self accompany. Even though this is a classical-based technique, students are not required to sing classical music. Don't be fooled! Just because a person sings classical music doesn't mean they are being classically trained. Sing all genres. Note: This is real Bel canto singing technique for the modern singer. Students who use this technique do not sound "old fashioned", overly "trained", or old opera singers. Each student will still sound like them but it will be the best version of their voice. Students are able to sing any style of music, even opera (if they choose) easily while their sound is appropriate to whatever genre they are singing. This is done with out aging or tearing down their voice. This means students become the best singers/performers they can be and keep their voices for the rest of their lives.
I teach vocal production and technique for all voices; I've worked with many singers of varying genres, but I usually work with opera singers. The first consultation is free. I am a strong believer in setting goals and achieving them. You've got nothing to lose and everything to gain. Take your singing to a whole new level. I will not teach phrasing and musicality. The way I see it, my job is to make you produce sound, the composers wrote the music, leave them to be the musical ones. Musicality for the singer is to stay in tempo, on pitch and follow the score, not to change the score to their liking. My job is to get you to create the kind of tensionless resonance that will deliver the true intention of the music. Tension in the body creates tension in the voice. Perhaps you feel that you know your vocal limits, try a free lesson and you will discover a whole other level which your voice is capable of.
Mara is an amazing voice instructor. In just a few weeks I am able to see and feel the difference in my voice. She is able to target ur weaks areas work with you for strengthening with such ease. Furthermore Key points during class time is then sent via email as homework.. She is great.. Highly recommend

I've had two other fine and seasoned banjo instructors and Pete is my favorite. He is engaged, patient, and earnest in teaching. He instills the balance of discipline and joy that is necessary to progress in learning. I appreciate his knowledge and openness to helping me learn progressive folk tunes in addition to traditional claw-hammer. Pete is a kind, young, and accomplished musician that plays like the best of the old timers! I hope to take lessons with him again when he's in Charlottesville.
If you are currently singing and want to go to the next level, I have the tools and the experience to help you. I am an active professional singer but I really enjoy helping others with the many things I have learned during my career. There are no secrets, magic pills, or even magic teachers! It is a 50-50 working relationship between the student and the teacher, and both must be dedicated and determined to improve. I am dedicated to the art of singing, and will always give you honest feedback, which is what you need to grow. See below for a brief statement about myself and my teaching, and thank you for your time. Voice teacher Sean F. has been teaching voice students for 10 years, and 6 years in New York City. Known as an exciting and dynamic performer and teacher, he inspires his students with a creative and custom-made lesson plan to fit each student. More importantly than that, Sean is a current and active professional singer who has sung all musical styles throughout the US and on three continents! Therefore his students receive all of the benefits of having an active working singer as their mentor. Whether you're a beginner, a high school or a college student, or just want to learn to sing a little better for your personal enjoyment, try a lesson, I can help you improve. Most recent studio news: after taking just 2 lessons with Sean, a young man was accepted into the prestigious La Guardia High School for the Performing Arts! His mother said "we owe it all to your teaching!" Other students have gone on to professional singing in NYC and elsewhere, in churches, professional choruses, and weddings. Lesson Details I have been a professional singer for 15 years, and I have sung a variety of styles from classical, to pop, to Broadway. My specialty and career is classical, but I feel comfortable helping in the other styles I mentioned also. I share all the useful tips and techniques I've learned from my own experiences with my students. I also use a series of exercises and invent others to best suit each student. I believe that There isn't just ONE way to teach everybody, because each person is unique, both physically and emotionally. I can personally guarantee that if you are serious about learning to sing better and devote your attention to this art, that positive results and improvement will be yours! Thank you for your interest and best of luck to you in your singing, NewYorkVoiceTeacher
I am a professional voice teacher who specializes in vocal technique/health, as well as creative development. Some of my students are award-winning songwriters. My student roster includes Broadway/Off-Broadway actors, songwriters, and anime voice-over artists. I have extensive experience with young artists from 11-18 years old including students at PPAS and Rosie's Kids.
At The Classical Voice Company's vocal studio, our motto is "cantare come si parla" or sing as you speak. Our vocal technique, rooted in the Italian vocal style, engages the singing centers of the brain which frees the singer and allows him to sing and breathe freely and easily. Each lesson is tailored to the student's specific needs. We provide lessons in both New York City and New Jersey.
I am a recording and performing jazz artist based in NYC. My jazz vocal coaching includes song interpretation, phrasing and rhythm and improvisation. I can also help you find keys, put together charts and create arrangements. In addition, I teach the basics of vocal technique such as breathing, placement and intonation through a variety of exercises. "Silver, who writes her own arrangements and is also a skilled bandleader, released her debut album, Here In My Arms, in 2004. Her sophomore effort, Dream Awhile, didn't surface until five years later, released last December. I downloaded the new album from iTunes and knew from the opening track that Silver was something special. Indeed, if a name ever fit a performer, it is Silver's, for her voice is like pure sterling. Her phrasing is exquisite, her clarity and enunciation on par with the great Jo Stafford, and her breath control a talent so often and so wrongfully overlooked rivals Sinatra's". Listening to Silver, the word "effortless" leaps to mind. Of course, we all know that such seeming effortlessness actually demands tremendous effort and discipline. And there's more than just assured ease to Silver's interpretations. The playlist for Dream Awhile includes 11 standards, each of which has been recorded hundreds of times. Yet, in each case, she makes these chestnuts newly interesting. Her interpretations aren't in any way radical, extreme or even particularly bold. What they are: thoughtful. From the tender ache of "The Song Is Ended" and deeper pain of "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning" to the heated anticipation of "Falling In Love with Love" and openhearted integrity of "I Can't Give You Anything But Love" (from which Silver draws the album's title), you fully believe not only every word she is singing, but every emotion she is quietly, sometimes almost furtively, expressing." -- Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes
Learn the music you love! I offer piano lessons for beginners through advanced. I teach all ages. I offer traditional teaching with the reading of the main two clefs (bass and treble), music theory, immediate approach to the keyboard, immediate exercise that develop the presence of your fingers in the keyboard as well as the strength and speed of your fingers. Start to play your favorite music from the very first lesson! Learning piano includes the following: * ear training * sight reading * music harmony * improvisational skills * knowledge of music history * counterpoint * technical mastery (note by note passage at every speed, octaves, double thirds, trills, arpeggios, scales, etc.) Technical mastery is not limited to the above. I also offer mastery of touch (how to approach the keyboard for a legato, articulate touch and semi-legato) and mastery of phrasing. The music phrase is different, depending on the composer and the period when the music was composed. I have complete command of knowledge from Bach to Broadway songs. Piano lessons are available also in a more easy-going way of learning which is reading only with the treble clef with the complete understanding of the chord symbols. This style of learning is definitely for jazz standards, Broadway and pop music. I offer singing lessons or vocal coaching for pop singers. The philosophy of my teaching here is based on the music that you want to learn. I don't do yoga lessons or relaxation lessons. I do start from the music. From the phrasing, you'll know where to breath. From the music, you'll know what kind of voice timbre to use (you don't sing a Broadway aria like a Beatles song). From the music, you'll learn the text by memory, understanding what kind of expression to use according to the meaning of the text itself. Warming up of the voice is essential for successful learning. I resume it in two essential points which are as follows: * Knowledge of your vocal range without trying to stretch where your voice can't arrive and will never arrive (find the beauty of your real voice) * Blending of lower middle and high range I offer performance opportunities for the most talented. I also offer vocal coaching for classical and opera singers. Identify from the beginning the timbre of your voice as well as your voice range. Some unlucky students have been convinced to belong to a voice range that is not theirs! I have been dealing with more than one case with singers that think to be a mezzo, but instead, they would be making a great career as alto! Once you know with certainty and confidence what is your range and timbre, you can direct your energy to the right kind of repertoire. This is very important especially for those who want to pursue singing at a professional level. You don't need to waste your time, money and energy in the wrong repertoire. For example, if you are a soprano leggero, you don't want to sing R.Wagner or G.Verdi. Other important aspects to consider include the following: * Enlarging your voice range in order to get your instrument more complete without forcing your voice and breathing according to the music phrase * Pitch control without the use of too much vibrato (I am not against it, but I am when the vibrato compromises the pitch.) * Clarity in the speed * Projection of your voice (The projection of your voice might sound great in the music studio, but would that be the same if you sing at the met?)
Record industry vocal coach Eve Soto teaches singers of all ages and levels in various genres and specializes in customizing your lessons to help you achieve your singing goals. She teaches all ages from beginner to advanced. She teaches the following subjects: * Breathing * Pitch * Range * Resonance (vibrato, crescendo and tone) * Registers and placement (belting) * Harmony * Improvisation * Artist development (solo and groups) * Songwriting and arranging Lessons are recorded onto CD for your convenience. Free consultation is available. Rates are at $65 an hour or $250 for a 4-lesson package.

I hone the skills that will increase your ability to do your best work without a coach or teacher, and ones that will heighten your awareness! Work on the material that is appropriate to your personality and voice type. Below are my clients' reviews: "I had never really connected with a voice teacher until I met Anna. I feel, for the first time, like someone is speaking my language. I understand my voice now as my own, instead of what a teacher tells me I should sound like, or trying to fit into a sound or measure up to an idea in my head. It feels like I'm uncovering the voice that I have inside, but have never heard until now. Lessons are engaging, and challenging, and they are a partnership from beginning to end!" - Hannah Sloat, Equity Actress (Soprano), "War Horse" Lincoln Center, Bushwick Shakespeare Repertory, Artspower "I've been studying voice with Anna Winthrop for two years now, and she is unlike any vocal teacher I've ever worked with. Her approach is unique and individualized to my specific vocal needs, and she knows how to explain proper vocal technique in a way that is clear and totally accessible. Under her tutelage, my voice has improved dramatically, and I'm now able to take on songs that previously would have been too difficult. Anna has given me great repertoire suggestions, and has also shared endless words of wisdom in regards to the audition process and the business of acting as well. As a person, she is enthusiastic, supportive, and selfless, and her personality makes the process that much more enjoyable! Anna has taught me how to be more expressive vocally and how to belt effortlessly and with flawless technique. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone, regardless of the musical style he or she specializes in, looking to improve his or her voice and technique!" - Elizabeth Wharton, Actress, Soprano, Mix, and High Belt, Artspower, :Yearbook: A Highschool Musical" (Off-Broadway) "My experience with Anna has been so incredible. She has helped me prepare for auditions, expertly gifting me with technique, breath, tone, relaxation, ease, and sculpting a dynamic performance arc out of the material. She specifically addresses the needs of the modern musical theatre actor, and has helped me to become more agile and versatile, allowing me to sing in a myriad of styles often within the same show or even song. Anna pulls from an amazing education and life of experience onstage to help her students achieve grace amidst the pressure, tumult, and joy of modern theater. All of these are offered in a gorgeous studio for an insanely affordable price!" - Wade McCollum, Equity and SAG Actor and Bari-Tenor, "Jersey Boys" (Norm, San Francisco and Chicago Company), "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" (Hedwig - LA Ovation Award, Los Angeles Drama Critic's Circle Award, Backstage West Garland Award), "Bat Boy the Musical" (Bat Boy), and "Cabaret" (Emcee) "Anna Winthrop is a phenomenal teacher. Her strength lies in her technical articulateness, combined with her understanding and patience for my process as a student. I always feel comfortable with her, especially since I know that she is a working actress and singer herself. She knows how to incorporate instruction on relieving tension, acting a song, and having fun; basically, you name it, and she knows how to do it! Anna puts me at ease even when I am cracking, yet I trust her to tell me the truth when I need it. I recommend her ten times over." - Crystal Boyd, Actress, Soprano, Mix, and Belt, Featured: Radio City Music Hall, Madison Square Garden, PBS "I thought I knew how to sing before I began lessons with Anna. I had been singing my whole life, but had never been formally trained. I figured I had a lot to learn, but I didn't realize the scope and breadth of what I didn't know. Anna possesses a very comforting ability to communicate both the abstract and practical, physical yet difficult to grasp concepts involved in singing properly, and she does so with an ease and personal touch that allow the student to completely relax and focus on the task at hand. She's completely renovated the way I produce sound, and in the process, she has given me a renewed confidence and determination to put into practice the techniques I've learned from her. It's a wonderful feeling to know I've found someone I can constantly return to to gently remind me to not fall back into my old bad habits." - Rick Cekovsky, SAG Actor and Baritone, Tisch, RADA, Midtown Theater Festival, Hudson Shakespeare Co., "Fools and Lovers" (Off-Broadway) "Anna Winthrop is a rare find of a voice teacher. Her instruction is clear and specific, and she follows exercises with an explanation of how they effect the vocal mechanism. She is a great champion of her students, combining her technical expertise with her performance experience. I have always found her to be helpful and accommodating, and she is happy to direct her students to good technique and great performance." - Brady Amoonclark, Actress and Mezzo-Soprano, NY Artists Unlimited, Penguin Repertory, Bare Shakespeare "After having a vascular polyp removed from my vocal cord, I started studying with Anna four years ago. With her great passion for teaching proper technique, she gave me confidence and had me singing stronger than ever. Anna also has a gentle heart and makes me feel comfortable, allowing me to truly enjoy getting to the next level in my singing journey." - Keith Freer, Lyric Baritone "I find voice lessons with Anna both deeply enjoyable and thorough. She's great with technique and doesn't let you off the hook easily! At the same time, she makes sure that there is enough time to enjoy the songs you are working on, while giving you very to-the-point feedback. She is highly focused (and fun) and definitely put me on the road to viewing my voice as a professional instrument." - Emma Blijdenstein, Coloratura Soprano "I can't recommend Anna highly enough. She has a solid, comprehensive technical background, combined with a fun delivery. Anna has led me forward, enabling me to make consistent progress over my two years of studying with her." - Matt Dundas, Tenor, Singer and Songwriter "The first criterion in anyone's mind when looking for an instructor is technical prowess, yet most people neglect the fact that all the skills and knowledge in the world come to nothing without the ability to convey it. Anna, apart from being exceptionally versed in the vocal arts, is such a flexible and adaptive communicator that she could teach tone-deaf, 2 year olds to sing operatically. Emphatic testimony aside, she's fun, lively and easygoing; She is an instructor with an a-plus grade!" - Ilya Chernyatyev, Tenor
