Instruments: Voice

About Me:
Upon Graduating from the Boston Conservatory, I moved to New York to pursue a Performance Career in Opera, Musical Theater and Acting. While performing, I continued my training in voice, dance and acting. Building these skills has made me a better performer and teacher.

I teach healthy singing focusing on breath support and proper placement. Having this foundation allows students to sing in many different styles and creates longevity of the instrument.

I believe the total experience of singing requires musical artistry, technique (physical) and connection to the material (acting).

Singing greatly improves self esteem, and I like to create an environment in which my students feel supported and safe.

Ages:
Elementary School, Pre-teen, Teenage, Adult

My son Miko has enjoyed his voice lessons with Ms. Rebecca. She definitely knows her stuff, and she is very energetic and helpful during his lessons. She is a terrific voice teacher and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for voice lessons.

5 out of 5 Without a doubt, an Excellent Teacher! - July 17, 2014

By Radhika - New York, NY, Voice Lessons

I have been taking voice lessons with Rebecca for over a year and am amazed with how much I have improved. As a professional, I appreciate Rebecca valuing my time. She is punctual, professional, and accommodating. Furthermore, I like that she seeks various alternatives to allow me to have an overall positive experience and allow me to develop in my own way. She does push me when I need to be pushed, which I thoroughly appreciate. I would highly recommend Rebecca as a teacher.

5 out of 5 Awesome teacher! - July 15, 2014

By Gali - NYC, NY, Voice Lessons

I have now been studying with Rebecca for 2 years and she has been so great every step of the way. She always comes prepared knowing what she wants to work on with me and always bring the songs that will help me improve. She is a wonderful performer herself which I think is also important as a singing teacher to know about performances. She also pushes you to work hard but always in a fun environment. I would definitely recommend Rebecca whether you are a beginner or an advanced students she will know how to take your technique further and always make you a better singer/performer.
