As an opera singer, I have worked with many different voice teachers, and Elena is by far one of the most supportive, dedicated, nurturing teachers I've ever had. I started with her as a high school student, and I did not know how to make any sound out of my mouth when I first came to her. I told her I wanted to learn how to sing, and she did not ever make me feel like anything less. She made me feel that my goals were achievable, and then we spent the next few years making sure I achieved them. No one would have ever thought that someone as shy and soft-spoken as me would become an opera singer, but it is because of Elena that I've gotten where I am now. I think about where I started from and where she got me, and to where I am now, and she made me firmly believe that anyone can learn to sing, as long as the passion, hard-work, and dedication is there. If you are doubting yourself, I would highly suggest just taking the step of taking lessons, and with Elena, because she will be dedicated to helping you get where you need to, and in the most supportive way she can. It's been 8-9 years from when I first started my singing journey with Elena, and now I am completing my Master's degree in Opera Performance, also having performed in operas and performances in Europe the past few years. I still think about Elena and how patient and compassionate she was with me, without her, I would not be where I am now.Oct 16, 2019Elena Diaz-Acosta Voice Studio's reply
Thank you for your kind words. I’m so proud of the artist and person you have become.
My daughter always wanted to do voice lessons but she was too shy to actually take them. She’s outgoing in everything except her ability to sing. Almost two years ago her Godparents decided to take a chance and get her singing lessons via the internet. They picked out a vocal coach which happened to be Ms Diaz-Acosta. Her bio appealed to both my daughter and my sister-in-law. At first my daughter was shy having to use a microphone in order for Elena to be able to hear her. After having a lot of patience with my daughter Elena was able to raise her confidence in her abilities. She is trying new songs and thriving at her singing abilities. Not only has her confidence boosted in her singing with Elena’s help but that confidence shines through in every aspect of her life. She is more confidence in herself and her abilities in other areas of her life. Highly recommend Elena as a singing coach. Her support in my daughters talents has helped her be able to join the choir at her school and perform in front of others. My daughter just loves her weekly sessions.Aug 12, 2019Elena Diaz-Acosta Voice Studio's reply
Thank you so much!
My Wife and I have been working with Ms. Elena Diaz-Acosta for years now and we can tell you that we have learned great skills through her, even though we are now in our 40’s. Her knowledge of musicality and theory is exceptional. Both my Wife and I learned techniques so well that we are able to utilize what we have learned to be great musicians. Since most reviewers focus on her strength as a teacher, I would like to let you all know how approachable Ms Diaz-Acosta is. As a teacher, she is always smiling and all ears, so encouraging that every lesson is considered a "therapy" session. My Wife and I both feel inspired with her personality. She is always positive and always ready to listen to our concerns; either during vocalization, singing a song, part of a workshop or preparing for our own performances. Ms Diaz-Acosta is definitely an excellent instructor.Aug 16, 2019Elena Diaz-Acosta Voice Studio's reply
Thank you Ann and Jefferson!
Elena is an amazing teacher! My daughters 7 and 9 years old have rapidly improved as a result of her training. Elena is an artist and exercises great patience with the kids. She is a professional that touches hearts each time she performs. Her voice is incredible. Because of Elena, my daughters have fallen in love with singing and both dream to become opera singers. My eldest was accepted at the National Children’s Choir, and I credit Elena for preparing her so well, but most importantly, for instilling in her the dream to become a professional singer. Thank you Elena for all that you do!Feb 9, 2020
Elena has been a great vocal coach to our daughter. She has provided technical knowledge and improved her singing skills all the while protecting her voice. She’s also a great motivator and her biggest cheerleader. Lastly she helped during high school auditions tremendously, ensuring that our daughter was accepted at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School for the Performing Arts where she is a student today.Feb 11, 2020
