Nyssa is a incredible instructor!! She motivates my daughter to do her best. My daughter truly loves going to lessons and wishes she could go every day. Nyssa inspires my daughter and brought her out of her comfort zone to open her up to proper singing techniques. I highly recommend Nyssa to anyone.Oct 24, 2019Verified
Nyssa has been so great! My son has started voice lessons ( with no prior experience) and she was very quick to respond to our inquiry and get us on the schedule. She is so nice, welcoming, cheerful, a good communicator, and has a beautiful singing voice. After my son’s first lesson he could not stop talking about how much he likes Nyssa and how excited he is for his next lesson. I would highly recommend Nyssa if you are looking for a voice coach.Jul 12, 2019Verified
She is very clear and knowledgeable - she knows what she's talking about and she herself has an amazing voice. I already feel a difference and now know how to utilize my body to sing properly and how to make notes/sound come out better. I feel certain that my voice and confidence in singing will grow tremendously because of her. I am looking forward to all lessons. Highly recommend her!Jul 14, 2017Verified
Nyssa is super easy to work with! I haven't sung in a long time and as an adult student I was pretty nervous about pretty much everything (I hate embarrassing myself) . . However, Nyssa is very reassuring and patient with the way she teaches which helped me drop my guard almost immediately. Im always looking forward to our next lesson because I improve every time!Dec 18, 2019Verified
We contacted Nyssa about getting a voice-lesson gift certificate for a Christmas present for our daughter. She has been delightful to work with in setting up the surprise. We can't wait to give it to her and for her to start taking her lessons.Dec 16, 2016Verified
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I try to be as relevant as possible from the first lesson by finding out a student's goals and priorities. A lesson will include technical skills, instruction on awareness of the body, games to emphasize theory topics, sight reading, rhythm, or ear training, and concentrated work on repertoire.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a BA in Music from Trinity Western University, and 20+ years experience with choirs and bands (participating, leading, and teaching).
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?If you would like to study piano, it's necessary to have daily access to the instrument in order to practice before the next lesson. Keyboards work for beginners and those who enjoy orchestrating sounds, but in general, acoustic pianos are best for building muscle strength in fingers and overall understanding of the instrument. (With this in mind, however, pianos over 80 years old most likely will not hold a tuning which can hinder ear training among other things). For studying voice, it's possible to learn to sing even if you have always thought you couldn't. Most of the time this takes courage to embrace the sound you have and build from there. Voice is the most vulnerable of instruments, but in my opinion, the most valuable and worth the investment!
