  • 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.”

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!

Affordable Singing Lessons in NYC

Affordable singing lessons. NYC. Is it possible to find affordable singing lessons in NYC? When trying to calculate affordability in singing lessons for NYC where things tend to be pricy, it’s easy to look just at pricing and think the cheapest will cost you the least. However, oftentimes the cheapest will actually cost you more. Let me explain.

Usually, pricing with affordability of singing lessons in NYC are based on a few things: Skill of the teacher/achievements of the students, location, and advertising costs.  Instructor effectiveness, skill, and convenience vary greatly and make this an apples/oranges type of situation.

Affordability in Singing Lessons for NYC and How It Relates To Experience

Most people who are starting their career teaching singing lessons in NYC will start out at the beginner teacher pricing which tends to be about $50-75/hour. This pricing reflects the fact that they might not be super great at teaching at the moment and are trying to get some experience. Not always, but usually this means that it is going to take them longer to teach you what a more experienced teacher could. If they have to spend two full sessions on the same thing a more proficient instructor could teach in one full session, for instance, the prudent budgeter would double that hourly rate in order to compare it to the more experienced person.

By the time a lot of people come into my studio, for instance, they’ve studied breathing a number of time and just not ever “gotten it”. So they may have spent 3-5 sessions over their life trying to learn breathing. Well, those sessions add up after a while. With a couple of exceptions for people charging like $250/hr which is done for other reasons, generally, by the time a teacher haas taught for a few decades, they have their teaching skills down to a much greater extent than they did when they started out in teaching.

How Advertising Affects Affordability of Singing Lessons in NYC Studios

Speaking of $250+/hr singing lessons, let’s talk about that! Some studios have a really solid advertising campaign going that costs money and brings a lot of people to their studio or website. These costs have to be absorbed by the clientele. Advertising generally is not the same as skill as I’m sure we all know from living in NYC! So sometimes these teachers are great and sometimes not so much. But they do get their services under the noses of more potential students and so can demand a higher rate playing the law of averages.

Location’s Bearing on Affordability of Singing Lessons in the NYC Market

Location is another consideration, especially when calculating affordability in singing lessons in NYC. I mean, NYC is giant and being in a train from one end to the other is not super fun. So a lot of teachers move their locations into midtown where it’s easier to get to from different places in the city. To some potential clients, it’s worth it to pay more to have that convenience. Other clients have a lot of more time free in their day and might not mind going to the outer boroughs if the pricing is right. So that comes into play. Generally, there might be a $15 additional cost for a midtown location because the rent there is kinda steeper than, say the Bronx.

Studio Track Records and the Love of Teaching: How That Creates Affordability in Singing Lessons in the NYC Market

Also, forgetting about years of experience, some people enjoy teaching and are good at it and good with people and some people don’t. And that talent turns into results for clients a lot of times because they look forward to the positive experience. And people who love people and love teaching tend to research teaching and try to discover more efficient and better ways to get results and their studio resume tends to be better as far as clients who went on to be highly skilled singers. If you’re not inspired, you won’t be inspiring and inspiration is very motivating for students. How that affects affordability of singing lessons in NYC is that students who are uninspired stick with it for a shorter time and there tends be be.a lot of turnover in the studio which starts to equal lower pricing over time.

Well, I hope this discussion of some things to look for when shopping for affordable singing lessons in NYC. If you have any questions, drop me a line. Talk to people is really fun and I’m here to help you out with any questions you have. Starting singing lessons is confusing so asking questions is a good thing!
