This is the place you want to go if you want to learn anything related to voice and vocal performance. Since the lessons are 1 on 1, the experience is highly personalized and tailored to suit your specific needs as a student. Patrick is the main instructor and does a phenomenal job of explaining concepts and developing them into reality. You will find yourself with a voice you didn't know you had after just a few lessons and practice. Each lesson focuses on vocal exercises and specific songs to work on, but you can work on specific points of difficulties as well, as said before each experience is personalized. Jon Price is another instructor which also does an outstanding job as a teacher and vocalist. Both instructors are extremely helpful. The program is organized, with specific goals and objectives being set so your progress can be kept track of. These are all kept on a USB stick along with any other media materials a student may need such a songs, recordings of each lessons, exercises, and more. They also offer Saturday bootcamps for free, which are group voice lessons that focus on other subjects that can greatly benefit your learning progress. Another amazing part of it is that they offer open mic parties on select Saturdays, where a large group of people come together and listen to each other perform a song that they have put a lot of work into. After going to several myself, it really impresses me and others alike to see people come again and again and be able to really hear the positive progress they have made. And the best feeling is probably when everyone claps for you afterwards, acknowledging not juts your performance but the work you put in to achieve it. Afterwards, it becomes a social event and overall really becomes a night to look forward to and look back upon to remember. If anyone is looking to vocally train, go here and the only problem you're going to have is that you didn't go earlier!

Patrick takes a different approach than vanilla voice lessons. He is a voice physiologist so he literally fixes your instrument. The instruction can be intense but it is well worth it. In a short time I have improved in ways I did not think possible. I am looking forward to the coming months to see where my range and ability will be.

I have been taking voice lessons with Patrick Wickham for over two years. Not only is he a fantastic teacher but the school offers a very supportive environment and the opportunity to work with other teachers and sing in front of other people with Boot Camp and open mic nights.

For the past 5 months, I have been taking vocal lessons at Posterity Studio with David Narcisse. I honestly can state that the whole experience has been phenomenal. I honestly learned a lot in this place; I felt comfortable, challenged, and motivated. David is very patient and attentive. He's not only a vocal teacher, but a friend. One can tell how much he cares for his students and music. He went out his way to learn more about the music I loved. When I began taking classes with David, I said one of my main goals was to be more confident with my voice to go out and sing in public places. I can say that I have become a better singer since I started the vocal lessons. I feel more prepare to go out and sing. During my time with Posterity Studio, I did go out once to sing publicly and I remember that I didn't do so great. David truly gave me strength to stand up and keep going. I can't thank him enough for all he did. I'm now very excited to learn more and I will keep practicing many of the lessons that I was taught here. It was an honor to work with Posterity Studio. I will definitely be recommending Posterity Studio to others as I'm sure no one will be disappointed. This place has only left a positive impact in me; I'm glad to have experienced it.

I've been taking voice lessons with Dave for almost a year now, and it's one of the best decisions I've made. I've loved singing my entire life, but I've always felt like I wasn't good enough. It turns out I just needed to tweak my technique. I've definitely improved immensely over the past year, and others (including professional singers) have noticed and complimented me on it as well when I've sang at gigs. I've learned effective warm up techniques, how to control my voice, how my posture and mouth placement are important for my vocals as well, and so much more. He's also very encouraging and patient. I definitely wouldn't sound the way I do today without him. He's given me the confidence to look into performing more in this new year. I'm more motivated than ever to see where my voice can take me and very excited to continue working with him. I was also lucky enough to record a song with him and was able to see what an amazing producer he is as well! Anyone looking for a great, knowledgeable, experienced vocal instructor and producer; look no further! Dave's your man!

I appreciated Ms. Thomas' professionalism & gentle manner. She tuned into a voice issue I've had by hearing me speak. Voice lessons are very intimate & personal. Her easy manner & kindness made it easy to make sounds even not so pretty sounds! She also has a performance workshop once a month where you can bring a song or two. All types of voices, all levels, opera, pop, rock, musical comedy, work on vocal exercises & acting. It's an enjoyable, learning experience. I have a new found confidence. ( at an affordable price) Thumbtack is sort of like a blind date. You're not quite sure who you're meeting & if this will end up being someone who'll be in your life for a time or a 'one time thing'! This was a good match! Thank so much!!

When I was fifteen years old my father passed away after an extended battle with stomach cancer. After this I began writing words that people told me were lyrics, but I was no singer. I had a hero that was a singer, a heavy metal singer named Rob Halford, but the crazy notes he hit, and the incredible way he used his voice seemed unattainable to me. As I went through H.S. aided by my friends, a friend of mine named Elsa was taking voice lessons with a teacher in our town of Caldwell, and since she saw me in Choir, and knew of my love of music, suggested her teacher to me. I have been a heavy metal singer for 27 years now, and though I am not a famous person by any stretch of the imagination, nor do I sing in any way similar to Mr. Halford, I owe my longevity, my knowledge, and the respect of my peers to Rae De La Cretaz. Rae did not just teach me how to sing, she taught me how to connect my voice to myself, and considering the emotion that was collected inside me, once I learned how to do that, I was able to realize things about myself I never thought were possible. When I found her again through her online presence some 25 years later and I all the way across the country the only thing I could think to say was thank you. If you're looking for a voice teacher, she is the best, but if your looking for a way to connect your voice to your person, and who you are as a human being, if you look any further you are making a grave mistake.

Michelle is the piano teacher I wished for when I was a kid! Michelle is patient, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. One of the things my 7-year-old loves most about Michelle is that she lets her explore her musical creative side. Michelle has guided my daughter in composing her own music, tackling tough songs of her own choosing and in introducing instruments like the harmonica into her selections. Michelle is always upbeat and full of positive energy and as a result my daughter loves her music lessons.

I’ve been studying voice with Dan for about eight years. I’ve always been wary about who I would trust my voice with; I’ve only ever had two voice teachers. When my first voice teacher moved away, I went for ten years without working with anyone. But after a decade of singing in gigs, rehearsals, and recording sessions, I became really worried that I’d seriously hurt my voice. I was having problems hitting notes that used to be easy for me, and my voice was feeling strained and tired a lot of the time. I was terrified that I had done my voice permanent damage. I found Dan’s website online, and his demeanor really struck me. He not only gave the impression of being knowledgable and professional; he seemed like someone who really, genuinely cared about the singers he worked with. I felt like I might be in good hands with him. Within five minutes into my first lesson, he put me completely at ease. Not only was he kind, easygoing, and funny, which made me feel very comfortable, he told me that I hadn’t seriously damaged my voice! He said I should be checked by a doctor to make sure, but that from what he was hearing in the evaluation exercises he had me do, he was positive that I only had chronic vocal cord swelling that he could help me fix with the right voice exercise regiment. I can’t even tell you how relieved I was! And he was right; within a few weeks, I was already seeing a huge difference, and my voice has been consistently healthy since then. Dan has been my voice teacher ever since. Not only is he extremely knowledgable; he explains things, even when they are scientific and technical, in clear, simple, easy to understand ways. He’s patient, supportive, and extremely giving. It just pours out of him. Working with him is more than a voice lesson; it’s like therapy. And he’s more than my teacher and mentor; he’s also a great friend.

Christine is a truly phenomenal teacher. If you have any hesitations about starting voice lessons because you are afraid of singing in front of other people, have no fear! Christine made me feel completely comfortable from the very first minute of our first lesson together. She is classically trained and extremely knowledgable about singing. I would recommend beginning lessons with her to get a solid technical foundation even if you eventually want to sing pop or R&B (i.e. she is not just for classical/opera singers!) That being said, I've met several of her other students and heard them sing and some are very serious students of the craft; she is an excellent teacher for experienced singers as well. During lessons, she plays her (baby?) grand piano in a large private area of her home. The walls in the singing area are filled with books of sheet music, but she also happily found specific songs online for me to work on when she didn't have the music already. She has an incredible ear- she truly listens to you and can pinpoint and explain to you exactly what to change (your posture or breathing, enunciation etc.) to instantly improve your tone and pitch. Improving your voice is a long process, and there are no magical tricks (except practice practice practice!). But with Christine as your guide, you will see improvement and most importantly, you will gain confidence. She truly believes in her students, which helps them believe in themselves too.

I came to Christine after not singing for 5 years. I had previously taken classical voice lessons in high school and singing in choir. She taught me basic singing technique by explaining why I needed the keep larynx down and demonstrating proper breathing. She is extremely kind, helpful and flexible and has empowered me to feel much more confident in my singing and also focus on important details such as phrasing, diction and pronunciation. She has also challenged me with repertoire that is fun to sing and appropriate for my voice and age. I am excited to see how my voice continues to improve with her guidance.

I have been taking voice lessons since the age of 7, and after having only one voice lesson with Anette I have learned so much! I didn't realize how many concepts about the physical aspect of singing I did not fully understand. She is very knowledgeable on the subject and simplifies it so it's easier to comprehend. Even if you think you know everything there is to know about singing, Anette will surprise you!

Really knows her stuff! She has taught me more in one voice lesson than I've ever learned with anyone else.

She is a great voice instructor .. highly recommend her!

What makes Nancy special as a voice teacher is her ability to understand her student. I did not want to become a professional, I just wanted to be able to sing in my church choir and not sound completely off. It turns out that there is a lot to singing which I had no knowledge of, the most important part is being relaxed and breathing properly. With her help I am singing much better than I ever thought I could and singing with my choir with so much more confidence! I highly recommend Nancy. She is patient (with me one often has to repeat segments over and over until they come out right), she never gets upset and she knows how to encourage you when you do well. She is warm and funny and it is a pleasure to have her as a teacher and a coach.

Nancy is a kind and insightful teacher who truly listens to her students' needs and aspirations. In my experience with Nancy, I've blossomed as a singer because she provides a comfortable space to experiment with my voice. She artfully tailors each lesson to help my vocal ability grow and become more refined. I am very impressed by her lessons-- instead of sticking to rigid methods that may not work for every student, she listens to my voice and experiments with techniques to strengthen my voice that have yielded tangible results! I was able to sing at a wedding recently with much more confidence and skill than I had before. Learning voice with Nancy has been an enlightening and enjoyable experience.

"My two sons, ages 10 and 7, have been playing piano with Jonathan Segal for over 5 and 2 years, respectively. I chose "playing" and not "taking lessons," very consciously, because Jonathan's jazzy, improvisational, and playful teaching style has made the lessons more like creative play and a labor of love than lessons for my boys. They are both progressing and mastering the basics, including ear training, sight reading, and theory, but also delight in composing music with him often. Jonathan's sense of humor, with its whimsy and sense of fun, is a riff of its own, just like his music. That is why my older son asked him 'Why can't I live with you?' " Donna G.

Jonathan Segal and I went to the HS of Music and Art together 'back in the day.' We remet at one of our reunions. I had toyed with singing jazz in recent years, totally unschooled. I asked him if he would teach me. I've been traveling to him from Brooklyn for lessons for a good part of this year. Our 'sessions' inspire me, keep me smiling. I don't practice much but, still, I am getting better as a singer and my dormant 'musicianship' is returning. He brings his musicality, marvelous skill and talent as a pianist, singer and musician to each lesson. Jonathan has a wealth of knowledge about all kinds of music and music theory, and, moreso, his teaching style is both encouraging and fun. He invites me to take musical chances, and each hour is infused with his great sense of humor. I feel so fortunate to have him as my teacher and recommend him highly." Marcy T.

Mariah Kaplan is an excellent teacher on many levels! Her upbeat, easy-going personality helped my young daughter feel comfortable immediately. Mariah quickly assessed my daughter’s musical level and customized a lesson plan for her that continually fosters growth. She did this by increasing musical theory exercises and switching her to a different, more effective lesson book. In addition, Mariah guided us to some helpful learning resources available online. Mariah consistently makes my daughter’s musical journey fun! In particular, she makes vocal warm up enticing and enjoyable. “Many Mumbling Mice” is a favorite. She regularly rewards good behavior and completed homework. Mariah is also very good at demonstrating vocal techniques which makes the learning process so much more comprehensive and efficient. Not only does Mariah make musical training fun, but she is very much aware of the importance of proper training. She stresses age-appropriate development of the young voice. In one instance, Mariah had to correct a potentially damaging vocal habit my daughter had developed on her own. Mariah redirected my daughter’s voice back to a healthy place through a series of exercises and examples. I greatly respect the fact that she is not only considering the vocalist’s singing for today but for the future as well. I feel that my daughter is in excellent hands with Mariah. I have seen the results Mariah’s training during public performances of both individual soloists and choirs. Her students are comfortable, confident and well-trained. Mariah selects vocally appropriate music for each student while making sure that the music is appealing to them as well. I greatly appreciate Mariah’s responsiveness to my concerns and questions regarding my daughter’s training. Moreover, I value the way she responds to my daughter with patience. Mariah is particularly good working with special needs students, although she is so well-trained and skilled that she can work effectively with any student. In short, Mariah Kaplan is an excellent vocal teacher that students of many levels would benefit working with.

My name is Molly and I am in 9th grade. I have been working with Mariah for about 6 months. When I came to her, I had been through 2 other voice teachers in a fairly short period of time. I was prepared to think Mariah was just going to be another name on the list, but she certainly wasn’t! She welcomed me with open arms the very first day. I have always had issues with jaw tension, and it was practically gone within the first few weeks of lessons. Now, I can’t even recreate what I was doing with my jaw! She has been the driving force of me improving my breath support and tone beyond measure. Since I have had Mariah, I have gotten into every vocal-based activity I have auditioned for. If that doesn’t say it all, I don’t know what will! I haven’t even mentioned her personality. Mariah is beyong warm and kindhearted. She and I could talk forever and not notice that a second went by. I can’t say how often I come into my lesson with some crazy audition music or request. No matter what, we work on what I want to and make it tons better every time! I would definitely recommend Mariah as a voice teacher!

Genya is so much more than a voice teacher! She came into my life at a time when I had given up on my voice, feeling like I was too old and having struggled with throat issues to the point where I thought I had lost it forever. Genya gently and so brilliantly coached me back to the point where I not only felt confident, but she even made me reach a range I never even knew I had! She took a holistic approach that melted away all my fears and bad habits until I was REALLY finding my true voice! Only a few months after working with her, I recorded a CD and had one of my songs featured on a hit TV Show! Genya pulled that ability that was lying dormant out of my shell and truly saved my musical life! She is an amazing teacher, mentor and soul!

It was a wonderful experience studying with Professor James because I started my vocal journey with her, and it was awesome. She has a very effective, fresh, and totally unique teaching process. In one year and a half, everything that I learned from her has been enough to complement my actual daily routine of practice. It was a pretty excited first year of voice lessons.

I met Valerie during a Masterclass held in Casentino in 2016. She was very positive, yet demanding and right on with spotting my technical issues. For the art of "bel canto" singing I have learned a lot during that week and - what I personally feel the best achievement of a Masterclass - taken inspiration and curiosity home with the wish to keep on working on these issues. Only a few lessons with Valerie have given me methods and ways of practicing the "bel canto specifics". After returning home I have started working with her via Skype-lessons (which works fine, given a distance of about 6.400 kilometers). Thank you Valerie!

I could not have asked for a better experience than I had taking voice lessons with Rebecca for three consecutive years. With her help, I improved not only my voice but my confidence. When I started working with Rebecca my voice was barely trained and I had little control or knowledge over how I was using it. She worked with me week after week, giving me new songs that would test my limits and then show me techniques and strategies that would help my voice grow to the strength it would need for that song. I constantly found that a song would feel hard when she first gave it to me and then suddenly appear easier two or three weeks later because of how she was pushing me. It was Rebecca's genuine interest and faith in my voice that kept me going back to her for years, too. When I thought a note was too high to hit or a rhythm was impossible to figure out, she would gently insist that I would get it and then prove time and time again that I could. I owe my voice and my confidence to Rebecca and the incredible teacher, guide and role model that she is to her students.

Rebecca is an absolutely fantastic teacher, I'm learning so much and feel very encouraged! Not only is she able to teach technique but having the piano accompaniment elevates the learning experience and helps me to understand a song's emotion. It's also helpful to be taught by someone actively working in theater who has suggestions on how to take your skills outside the classroom. I recommend Rebecca to anyone and everyone, she is the best voice teacher I've ever had :)

Sonia has made learning to play the piano so much fun for this 57 year old who hasn't played the piano in over 40 years. She makes it informative and a lot of fun. I'm learning music theory! I look forward to practicing because she chooses pieces which challenge me to practice but don't overwhelm me. But the best part of my lesson is watching and listening to her play the piece I'm working on. She's an incredible pianist. I HIGHLY recommend Sonia.

I had always wanted to learn to play the piano, so my husband gave me three lessons as a birthday present. Sonia was assigned as my teacher and has shown great patience with her 'adult student.' An outstanding pianist, she tries different approaches, apps, and will play a piece for me herself, so that I can better understand the basics. I have thoroughly enjoyed my lessons and recommend Sonia highly.

My son and daughter have been taking lessons at the Piano Workshop of Chester with Sonia for the past few years and they continue to make great progress!

In just a few short months I can't believe how much I've learned from Jessica. My technique has improved; my tone in the upper part of my range has improved; how to keep my tongue from getting in the way / impeding the sound; so many aspects of singing. When I started my lessons I was particularly concerned that I might be doing something that was tiring my voice and causing it to lose volume. Jessica's knowledge of and ability to demonstrate proper singing technique helped me through that concern and I know I am a "healthier" singer now. Knowledge and ability aside, her approach is also very patient and very encouraging. I highly recommend her to anyone interested in improving their technique, tone, range, artistic ability, etc.

I sang with Jessica three years ago in a concert. I was very impressed with her technique. When I heard that she was going to open a studio, I immediately called her and started lessons with her. This has been one of my best decisions. She is not only a fantastic singer, but she is very knowledgeable about vocal pedagogy. What is gratifying to me is that she has the ability to explain exactly what you are doing incorrectly, but can also explain to you how to correct it and makes it easier for you to sing a "pop song or a Verdi aria". You feel a tremendous sense of accomplishment and not frustration in your lesson. She is funny, smart and talented!

Jessica has been an incredibly kind, supportive and knowledgable teacher. I've had a lot of voice teachers over the years, and she has helped take my voice to the next level with her scientifically-based techniques. I've learned about the physics and mechanics of how the voice works and ways to physiologically change my sound, which makes a lot of sense to me (as a former scientist myself). She has also found opportunities for me to sing outside of lessons, which I appreciate. I wholeheartedly recommend Jessica as a voice teacher - she will change your sound for the better.

I am a professional singer and was having some struggles with my voice, mostly due to fatigue and overuse. I went to Jonathan for some lessons and, I have to say, I feel much better. He started slowly with me, giving me some very helpful excercises to build on. After a few weeks, I definitely noticed a difference. With Jonathan, it seems that he isn't just teaching by the book, but also takes one's personal situation and needs into consideration. He is ALWAYS positive. Many voice lessons I leave feeling as if I've never sung a note in my life. Not with Jonathan. I always leave feeling good about my voice and ready for the next challenge. I highly recommend Jonathan as a teacher.

Jonathan is not only a great voice teacher but an amazing coach and motivator. I couldn’t have produced my album without him.
