Singing Lessons (for adults)
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.Oct 11, 2016Verified
Singing Lessons (for adults)
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.Mar 22, 2017Verified
Christine is personable, considerate, and talented. It had been years since I had taken a voice lesson, and Christine in just a few short months ensured I was singing with the proper technique and form. She has improved my upper range and provided me with more confidence in my singing skills than I have had in quite some time!Aug 17, 2015
I have been taking private singing lessons with Christine for about two years. During this time her coaching has opened up my voice both technically and in terms of emotional expression. We have worked together on a range of classical music, and she is a very hands-on, positive but also exacting teacher. In addition to helping build my repertoire and improve my technique, she also gives me advice about the performance business. I would recommend her 100% to anyone who loves to sing and wants to work on their technique and performance.Jan 13, 2014
After years of studying classical voice and still having technical difficulty, an accomplished singer suggested I study with Christine Moore, who is now teaching me to sing more fully and freely. While former voice teachers were well intentioned, professional, had good reputations, and taught me vocal concepts for over 35 years in weekly lessons, I continued to struggle with the passaggio and lowering my larynx in the higher range. Christine immediately understood my vocal issues and, most importantly, within a very short period of time was able to teach me techniques that have dramatically improved my vocal production. My husband and I are amazed at how much my voice has improved since I started studying with Christine only one and a half years ago. One important concept that Christine introduced me to that previous voice teachers didn’t explain is how to sing with proper vocal cord closure. Apparently, I was over-blowing breath through my vocal cords and wondering why I never had enough breath to sing a substantial aria. Christine also taught me the concept of “appoggio” (breath support) and I’m finally feeling a stronger foundation of lower body breath support that gives me the freedom to release my shoulders, head, and jaw to sing freely. Improved cord closure and breath control is helping me to produce a much larger voice than I ever thought I had. In fact, prior to learning these concepts I thought I was a mezzo-soprano and it is now very clear that I have a fairly large soprano voice. What I have learned about Christine is that she takes her work very seriously and expects her students to do the same. She has never canceled a lesson, chooses challenging and appropriate repertoire, arranges student recitals, teaches summer workshops in Italy, continues to sing professionally herself, and encourages her students to set goals and to perform. Additionally, she is a genuinely nice person, not the prima donna type you might expect of someone with so much talent and experience as a performer and a teacher. Honestly, I’m not someone that enjoys writing (I’d rather sing) but I wrote this review about Christine Moore because she really made a difference in my singing. I can only imagine how my voice would have developed if I had started training with a voice teacher like Christine earlier in my life. Maybe someone reading this will find out!Aug 21, 2016
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing is very straight-forward, based on 60 minutes and 45 minutes. I teach at both my home studio in Park Slope, Brooklyn and at a rental studio in Manhattan. For Manhattan lessons, a small $5 room charge is added to my fee.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I begin with basic "bel canto" exercises both for the voice and with breathing for the first few of lessons (with no repertoire) to get the singer used to bel canto technique. These include breathing exercises, as well as 2, 3 and 4 note exercises in all the registers, including chest voice, middle voice, "passaggio" and high registers. After the basic technique is coordinated and understood by the student, we then start on repertoire that is suitable for that singer's level where he/she can apply the exercises to the arias or songs he/she is working on. Students will work hard, but you will get results that are lasting.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I went to a prestigious conservatory in Manhattan and was trained by some great teachers, coaches and conductors. I have a lot of experience onstage, so I know what pressures singers are under when they perform. I am constantly sitting in on coaching and voice lessons of colleagues and their students, and attend seminars and master classes regularly. And I listen a lot: recordings, online videos, etc. I learn a lot from that. On top of all of that, I learn from my students!
