    “You’ve done more for me in one lesson than all three of my previous teachers the whole time I was studying with them.”

  • JP (Google Review),8 lessons w Ellie –2 previous instructors

    Eleonor improved my skills like no other. I was shocked that she was able to help me improve skills enough to perform live with a choir. Everything from my tone,vocal range,sense of rhythm,and pitch have improved in such a short period of time.  Her techniques are fun,funny,and yet incredibly effective!  I highly recommend.”

  • Charlie I (Facebook Review),10 lessons w Ellie

    Most coaches just weren’t that effective for me. That is,until I went to Eleonor England.
    From the first time I met Ellie,I could tell she was a different kind of coach…about 3-5 minutes into following her instructions,she told me to sing. Whoa. There was a noticeable improvement in my tone and an ease in performance.”

Singing Lesons NYC testimonial with Kate Kim

Video Review:The brilliant Singing Lessons NYC K-Pop star and Superstar K contestant Kate Kim.  Ellie was her first (and only) singing teacher in SF before she was signed by a K-Pop label and moved to South Korea

Note From Ellie

Hey Guys!

Ellie here!  Welcome back to lessons in Autumn 2018!  For those who may be new to the studio,welcome!!

We’ve had some great results with former clients going on to nominations/wins/etc at:

  • the GRAMMYs
  • Los Angeles Music Awards
  • Chinese Music Award
  • The Voice,Superstar K
  • #1 album &song charting

We’ve also had amazing results and a lot of fun with beginners developing their voice for recreation or to move into being professional.  Beginners with non-pro goals have:

  • Sang at their own wedding
  • Sang at a proposal
  • Become office karaoke stars
  • Gotten into audition-only choirs and community theatre
  • Gotten the band back together!  :D
  • More

People have also:

  • Made the transition from classical to jazz,pop,or rock without sounding lame AF
  • Learned not to fear singing or speaking
  • Learned singing breathing for general well-being and stress relief
  • Overcome stage fright using mental training techniques

...You get the idea and can read all our reviews,as well.

I love the variety of working with people of all different backgrounds,skill levels,and types of goals.  Working with just pros or just beginners isn’t as fun as getting to work with lots of different people.

Our 3 commitments to you as a person and artist or amateur singer:

  1. You will leave each lesson a better singer or speaker
  2. You will leave each lesson feeling better emotionally and physically than when you walked in
  3. You will learn techniques that you won’t learn at other studios

I choose to teach because it is actually really thrilling to get to hear the results right away,get to meet people and hear about their hopes and dreams and get to do concrete work toward getting them there - whether it is just to sing better or to cut a cd or make an audition.  I love people and I love dreams and having the chance to work on them with people is a real privilege.

Ellie Offers Something Unique in NYC


This is what makes us unique among NYC voice teachers:

  • We are priced very competitively.  A lot of the studios offering singing lessons in NYC who,like us,have clients nominated for GRAMMYs,winning American Idol and Superstar Kauditions,hosting majour shows like The Voice,and selling felony quantities of records cost between $150+/session.  But that sucks cause at those rates most peope can’t come in that often.  I want you to come in and learn some stuff.  Your skills and success are my resume.
  • We are cost-effective. Many of Ellie’s clients and past students have left reviews to the effect of one lesson here is more informative and useful than however many lessons/years/months of study at both cheaper and more expensive studios. Check out our reviews for more deets!
  • Just because you’re not a pro vocalist and regardless of whether you want to go pro or just for personal reasons,you’ll get treated the same.  I love my pro clients but I also love my amateur clients and just really enjoy meeting diverse people from all over with different relationships to singing.  We have clients who are devoted shower singers through international pop superstars.  It’s the diversity that makes it fun!
  • Ellie knows what jazz is!  This is especially helpful if you are looking for a jazz vocal coach or are in town for jazz vocal workshops.
  • Almost all clients notice that they learned how to make thier voice sound better in the first lesson.  The first lessons is where Ellie teches you how to sing from your diaphragm correctly.  Other ways to sing better and tips to sing better are given at each lesson along the way.  We offer solid technique for all musical styles,which is how to improve your singing voice.
  • Clients who started w Ellie as their first voice lessons went on to do some cool stuff!

Congratulations to Singing Lessons NYC client K-Pop Singer Kate Kim (김지연) from San Francisco (link), K-pop/television
Ellie’s San Francisco private singing lessons and vocal coaching student and K-pop diva Kate Kim was recently scouted from her YouTube channel and flown to Seoul, Korea to be in Korea’s and K-pop’s largest and most popular singing talent show called Superstar K (슈퍼스타 K),(website).  Check out her YouTube Channel to see her demos and follow her for her latest vids! Or visit out K-pop/Canto-Pop/Mando-Pop singing lessons info page on this site!  One of Ellie’s specialties is in the big voices needed for the East Asian pop markets (KPop, CantoPop, and MandoPop)

Stay Tuned: Ellie’s new CD is in the works!

Congratulations to Singing Lessons NYC client Indie Singer Aoede, Indie/Singer-Songwriter
Ellie’s private singing lessons client Aoede was nominated for a GRAMMY at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles! Yes, THOSE Grammys! We’re a bit late in posting this but happy belated Grammy nomination to singing lessons and vocal coaching NYC student Aoede! In 2012, she also won TWO 2012 Artists In Music awards – Album of the Year and Best Folk/Acoustic Act. She also won at the LA Music Awards for Adult Contemporary Artist of the Year.  Singing Lessons NYC is super proud of her GRAMMY nomination but also her personal, inimate, and unique artistry!

Congratulations to Singing Lessons NYC client American Idol Contestant Pop/R&B Singer Karl, US pop/television
Ellie’s private singing and vocal coaching student Karl fought through three auditions and won a “Golden Ticket” from American Idol.  They flew him to scenic Hollywood for the final televised American Idol audition.  Super fun – congrats, Karl!  Singing Lessons NYC has had two American Idol contestants.

Congratulations to Singing Lessons NYC client Taipei R&B singer and “Super Idol” Second-Place Winner, Signed Recording Artist Hawawa Yang (超偶3 楊蒨時) (links: China US) Congratulations to Ellie’s Mando-pop voice lessons client Hawawa on winning second place in the popular Taiwan franchise TV talent show, Super Idol!  She is now living the life of a signed artist in Taipei, Taiwan.  A lot of the clientelle at Singing Lessons NYC is fom Eastern Asia for those pop markets. Vocal coach R&B NYC

Congratulations to Singing Lessons NYC client multi-platinum Recording Artist and International Super Star Prudence Liew (劉美君, 刘美君) (links: ChinaUS) Who is recording a new English-language CD.  Ellie worked as her vocal coach (NYC) when Pru took private singing lessons and voice coaching in SF from Ellie in maybe 2008 in preparation for a majour release concert at the Hong Kong coliseum (13,000 seats, people!).  Well, she killed it and sold those shows out and has been taking home awards an nominations since then including: CASH Golden Sail Music Awards (2008), Golden Horse Awards (2008), Hong Kong Film Awards (2009), Ming Pao Weekly Magazine Awards (2009), and Chinese Music Awards (2008, 2009 & 2010). I can’t remember if she is  12- or 16-time platinum-selling artist (I’d hafta Google that which I’m wayyy too lazy to do) but these days she has leveraged her successful Canto-Pop (and subsequent Mando-Pop) CD success into becoming one of the most well-respected film actresses in the Chinese language film industry.  She’s also an amazing person.

Congratulations to Singing Lessons NYC client Indie Recording Artist Lio Nicol (link), country/pop  Who took singing lessons with Ellie privately during her time in SD and also via Skype singing lessons during her move to LA.  On her final session of vocal training in San Diego prior to going into Skype voice lessons, we got her hitting a high G (G6 – that’s the second G from the top of the piano for those of you watching at home ;)), in the so-called “whistle register”.  She pivoted fom country to pop and moved to Los Angeles where she has popped out an awesome CD.  Srsly.  Listen to Take Me Away on her SoundCloud which I really like a LOT.  She can sing circles around what she needs to do in that tune, but an artist uses their skill judiciously to communicate the song and I just love this tune and her tastefulness in it.  Another really kind and wonderful person, as well.  Makes a girl feel pretty good about her success!  Lio Nicol is a great example of the types of pop voices Ellie and Singing Lessons NYC fine tune for the US and Asian pop markets.

Congratulations to Singing Lessons NYC client Jazz Artist, Singer-Songwriter and Vocal Instructor Neha Jiwrajka (link), jazz
We worked in singing lessons in San Francisco privately for a pretty long time and then on her auditions for grad school. She made the audition for jazz voice at the graduate level at both New England Conservatory of Music and the Manhattan School of Music.  In her work as a vocal coach, Ellie’s singing lessons students have a 96% admittance rate to the school, conservatory, or mustical theater “part” of their choice after a year of study – this goes for classical, jazz, or musical theater.  Neha eventually went to New England Conservatory in jazz voice and then got a gig in Manhattan, NY As a Metropolitan Opera Guild Teaching Artist teaching singing lessons in NYC!  She still gives singing lessons in New York City (Brooklyn) and works as a vocal coach so check out her site if you wanna – she’s solid on technique and jazz skills as well as coaching singers in other genres!

Congratulations to private student blues singer Steve Bulger and 145th Street Blues Band (link), hard-driving blues …on their recently-released 2nd album Where The Blues Live  (nominated by the 2012 San Diego Music Awards as Blues Album of the Year)! It’s a great CD!  The also WON the regional International Blues Challenge for Southern California and went on to compete in Memphis, TN against some of the best blues acts in the country!  Also see their gig page for upcoming blues shows (popup).  Ellie has been Steve’s voice coach in NYC and given him singing lessons for a number of years in San Diego.  Ellie has a lot of Blues singer voice lessons students through Singing Lessons NYC.

Ellie recently named one of the top voices in jazz …worldwide by French jazz writer and publisher. Maximillien J De Lafayette. I am amazingly flattered! Thanks so much!

Congratulations to Singing Lessons NYC Client Recording Artist indie pop singer Tracy Johnson in San Francisco (link), indie/pop/singer-songwriter …on her 2012 EP (sound samples) Sometimes Love is Fire which will be her 3rd release – or buy it on iTunes. Also, congrats on having her song “Old Enough To Know Better” on the TV show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians“.  Her 2nd cd “Dreams in Cold Weather” was featured on MTV’s “Real World Laguna Beach” and “Real World Denver” plus the film “Winter of Frozen Dreams”. She was the L.A. Music Awards‘ “Female Singer/Songwriter of the Year” and has also been a San Diego Music Award nominee for “Best Pop Album“.  I am really proud of Tracy – she is an awesome artist and person and I am so proud to have given her private singing lessons and been her vocal coach in NYC!  ADDED: OK I can’t even keep up with Tracy’s song placements.  She just got a bunch more.  I dunno if it is through her manager who also managed Jewel or some other thing but her songs are reallllllly popular with TV and movie producers!  Check her FB page for the latest!
