Introduction: Welcome to the Nicky Phillips Vocal Studio! I am currently teaching all lessons online at the moment. When things go back to normal I will be teaching out of my home studio in Nyack, NY as well as in Midtown at 34th and 8th Avenue (there is an additional room rental fee with midtown lessons). I am a graduate of New York Vocal Coaching's Voice Training and Teacher Certification course and I have been privileged to have been mentored by Tony and Grammy award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton, In The Heights) and to have worked with musical theatre legend Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell). I have been a professional singer, composer and teacher for 18 years collectively. My work as a multi faceted artist has given me an advantage when teaching voice students. It has allowed me to dig deeper into the story telling of a song and how to convey that through the voice whether a musical theatre, jazz, pop, rock or R&B song. I approach the voice through an advanced technical lens and consider myself a voice technician as well as a vocal coach! Whether you are looking to strengthen your voice, work on your "mix", expand your range, land that audition or become comfortable with singing in public, I can help you achieve your goals all while learning proper technique in a fun, healthy and nurturing environment! **I offer a discount on the first lesson so that you can make sure we are the right fit! The discounted rate is $60 for that first hour lesson. I love to sing and I know the joy that it brings to me, so helping students find their voice and share it with the world is an absolute gift and an honor.

Singing Lessons

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.

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!!

  • 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 for my home studio location, $105 for the midtown location 45 minute lesson - $60 (home studio location) 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 been privileged to have been mentored by Tony and Grammy award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda and to have worked with musical theatre legend Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell). 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. I am currently working with acclaimed voice teacher Justin Stoney.
