This was my first time ever going to a singing lesson and it was out of this world. Nicky was an amazing teacher. She makes you feel extremely comfortable and confident. Can’t wait for my next lesson.😊😊😊😊❣️Aug 5, 2019VerifiedNicky Phillips Vocal Studio's reply
You rocked your first lesson! Can't wait to continue working with you!
Amazing vocal teacher! Nicky is a great vocal teacher who is kind and patient. She has been working with my 11 year daughter for about 3 years. Nicky makes the extra effort to use age appropriate songs and part of the lesson includes music theory. Win win! My daughter can’t commit to the practice time necessary with an instrument, so we went with vocal lessons with Nicky. With singing she can practice any time and anywhere. Nicky has been able to bring out some beautiful notes, making this mom very proud. Can’t beat the price - she comes to our home and is a very accommodating with our crazy schedule. Again she is an AMAZING vocal teacher!!Mar 14, 2018
Nicky is wonderful. She is knowledgeable, personable and very accommodating. My 9 year-old daughter is studying with Nicky as well, and now has a confidence and love for singing. Nicky seemingly effortlessly adapts techniques and concepts for all ages and skill levels with amazing results.Aug 4, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I give lessons in my home studio in Washington Heights, New York City or over Skype. The pricing is: 60 minute lesson - $80 45 minute lesson - $60 Cancellation Policy There is a 24 hour cancellation policy. Lessons cancelled or rescheduled within 24 hours of the lesson start time require a full compensation.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When working with a new student I sit down with you and discuss what your goals are. What do you most want to achieve in your lesson? Is it extending your range? Is it working on strengthening your mix between your chest and head voice? Is it a song for an audition that requires song and character analysis? Or maybe singing lessons aren't about tackling a technical issue with your voice, maybe it's about experiencing the joy of singing and connecting to music. Whatever your goals are, I will then tailor specific vocal exercises for the goals that you have in mind.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a graduate of New York Vocal Coaching's Voice Training and Teacher Certification course under the tutelage of Justin Stoney.

I have studied voice at the Royal Conservatory of Toronto, trained in music through the Berklee School of Music, am a member of the BMI musical theatre workshop where I was awarded the Jean Banks Award for Outstanding Achievement in Musical Theatre, am a recipient of an ASCAP Plus Award and am a graduate of Ryerson University's Theatre Acting program.
