  • Welcome to Long Island Voice Lessons! This is a studio for singers of all ages and levels. If you love to sing musical theatre, pop, rock, country or jazz, Long Island Voice Lessons is where you want to be!

    Lessons consist of vocal exercises that not only strengthen the voice but also help to increase vocal range and ability. In addition to working on vocal exercises, attention is devoted to becoming more aware of body tensions that have an adverse affect on the vocal mechanism. Students are allowed to sing the songs they choose, and we work on applying the new techniques to those songs. Additional training on microphone technique, audition preparation, ear training, music reading, and beginning piano is also offered.
