Online Singing Lessons & Singing Coaches

Our Singing Coaches are ready to help you shine!  Our one-on-one, online singing lessons allow you to start your singing training by establishing a strong vocal technique foundation, refine your singing technique, work on developing a new part of your singing range (i.e. how to belt), or exploring a new or favorite music genre—musical theatre to opera to jazz to pop/rock to singer/songwriter. Our Singing Coaches help you improve your singing voice, while focusing on vocal health. Our goal is to help you to learn how to sing better in the healthiest way possible!

 

Our Singing Coaches are professional NYC singers and performers with graduate level training (M.M. in Voice Performance/Pedagogy). They are up-to-date on the latest singing trends, trained to teach singing in all different music styles in your online singing lessons, and are experts on the audition process. They have worked with students of all ages on a range of singing material available throughout the musical theatre, classical voice, jazz, contemporary, and pop/rock music canon.

In your one-on-one, online singing lesson with your Singing Coach via Skype/FaceTime, you will choose a singing goal in your first online singing lesson (as specific as how to strengthen your mix or how to sing an Italian aria or as general as how to sing high notes) and you will receive a hand-selected song that matches your goal. In your online singing lessons, you will work on singing and vocal exercises that help improve your singing technique for that specific song and explore that song in-depth with your singing coach, learning the notes and rhythm of the song, applying solid vocal technique, and learning how to perform the song. You will also receive a Singing Warm-up Video Series to practice between singing lesson and auditions and a professional quality accompaniment track of your song to practice with.
