  • Yes!  Even if you currently think you suck! That includes if people told you you are tone deaf - if you like music you’re not tone deaf. Really tone deaf people don’t find music interesting except maybe drums.  So if you feel you suck, come on in!!! That’s why you take singing lessons...to get better!

    All of them.  Okay, not the demon-voice heavy metal thing; I have no idea how that works.  But basically there are two main schools of singing: classical and popular style (called CCM which stands for Contemporary Commercial Music).  CCM includes all non-classical styles and there are very specific ways that you teach those styles, you can’t just go to anyone who teaches classical and expect to learn to sound like a pop diva cause there are some additional things you have to do to make it sound right.

    Some people teach both - and some classical techniques are super useful for singing CCM - but you just have to make sure your teacher knows what’s what.  Same goes for learning classical. You don’t wanna go to someone who only teaches, like, R&B or something if you wanna learn classical.  

    All our teachers have a strong background in classical but are also skilled with CCM.  Dr Felix has like 4 degrees and his training in his PhD in vocal pedagogy included how to teach CCM.  Ellie sings jazz but was trained in classical - jazz being a CCM style.

      Here’s a non-exhaustive list of styles we teach:
    • Classical
    • Pop
    • Rock
    • Indie
    • Disco, baby! Disco!
    • Jazz
    • Blues
    • R&B
    • Musical Theatre
    • Soul
    • Trip Hop
    • Hip Hop
    • Chill Out
    • Folk
    • Country
    • Bluegrass
    • Cantorial
    • more
    You should make progress at every single lesson.  However, coming in regularly is super important to make the most of your investment.  For most people, that’s every week.  Some people like to come in twice weekly (but you have to make sure you have time to practice between lessons) and some people come every other week (but you have to make sure you stay on track with your practicing and don’t just practice once every 2 weeks the night before your lesson).

    Professional singers often come in just “once in a while” but for beginners and it’s better to have consistency for building your skills over time.

    How many lessons you need is going to kinda depend on your goals.  You should notice a change in the first lesson, though.  You should notice pretty significant improvements by the 10th lesson.  However, other things to watch for are improvements of how easy it is to sing. Often clients will come in having a hard time getting their voice to leave their throat and come out into the room. In addition to how you sound, improvements in that are one of the hallmarks of vocal lessons.  
    Yep!  You’ll wanna hit Dr Felix up with that, but we do do one-time coaching for auditions.  We know what’s up and can help you with where to cut the music, coaching you, and giving you the odd technique suggestion.  However, just coming in for audition coaching when you have the occasional audition won’t move your skill level forward as much as doing technique-oriented lessons on the regular.

    We do not do one-time coachings for American Idol or The Voice auditions (we will for our regular clients though).

    Keep in mind that we don’t have video equipment but we’re happy to help with your self-tape if you bring the camera/phone!

    Yayyyyy!!!! We’re going back to offering some in-person lessons (NYC only)!  We’re able to do that when our faculty and any spouses/households are fully vaccinated.  Here’s the IRL lessons we have: Taylor: All Days every Monday (he also take online clients Mondays too if you prefer) Dr Felix: Any day or time can be an in-person lesson (or online if you prefer)

    What We Need From You

    NY State Clients In order to keep the space safe for everyone, we will require NYC area clients to also be fully vaccinated and verified through the Excelsior app.  You put some info into it and it digs up your vaccination records (NY State only) and gives you an all-clear screen - just text that to us and show it at your lesson and you are IN! Out of State Clients Many of our clients come in from out of the area during summer to study.  The Excelsior app cannot verify your inoculation status for out of state vaccinations.  However, for these clients, we will accept a screenshot of your CDC vaccination card.  Please also bring it to your lesson to show to your voice teacher.  You must be 2 weeks past your last vaccine dose to nab an IRL lesson.    
    Vocal training in the US uses a lot of different languages so most good voice teachers can accommodate singing in French, German, Italian, Spanish, Latin, etc.  The training of teachers in the US unfortunately does not include Asian languages which is kinda racist.  However, vowels are pretty much the same in most languages so Ellie does do work with people singing in Asian languages as well and has a lot of students in the Hong Kong music industry.  It’s good to start on a slow song so she can hear the vowels you’ll need to work with.  European and other languages are all a—okay, too.

    If you are singing in Mandarin, after learning technique you’ll want to do a few sessions with Mandarin speaker David Lin on our faculty who can help you with putting feelings into the song.  This is called “vocal coaching”

    Do you want group lessons?  We could totally do those if you all want em - hit us up.  We do right now have group piano and songwriting classes, but if there was a demand, we’d totally do singing.

    Yeah, no.  We’d love to!  But we can’t do that because we have to pay our teachers.  But we do have a money-back guarantee on your first lesson!   Also, to help you feel more comfortable and know what to expect, check out our reviews.
