Name: Judy Hages URL: www.judyhages.com
My life has always been about singing and entertainment. Beginning at the age of six I developed both vocal and stage skills as a singer and entertainer on the TV program The Howdy Doody Hour in New York City. The show was one of TV s first and longest-running children s entertainment series. I was also a regular on two other children's shows: Happy s Party out of Pittsburgh PA and Giant Tiger out of Cleveland OH.
My high school and college years were spent studying vocal performance. During high school, at the age of 14, I was given a scholarship to the Cleveland Institute of Music. During college, while pursuing my BFA from Carnegie Mellon, I was awarded three Carnegie Awards: two in Voice and one in Piano for Outstanding Performance in a Competition . Upon graduation I was awarded a Teaching Fellowship towards my Master s Degree and in the early 70 s was listed in the Outstanding Young Women of America publication (listed under Judy Zabetakis). From the late 70 s to the early 80 s I immersed myself in the pure form of the Belcanto Technique methodology in Germany. It was at this time my concert career in Germany, Austria and Spain flourished. It is this pure form of the Belcanto Technique that is the basis of my teaching, as the voice building aspect of it significantly increases range within weeks and heals abused voices.
As a teacher for over 38 years, my students have performed all over the world as solo artists or band members in dance clubs, cabaret clubs, radio stations, TV and musical theatre. Currently one of my students, Bridget Barkan, is touring with the Scissor Sisters. Two other students who have granted me the rights to mention them are: Q-Tip and Dan McBride of Thirteen Hands. Q-Tip was a member of the critically acclaimed group, A Tribe Called Quest , and is more recently involved in solo work as well as with his jazz-influenced hip hop group. Dan McBride was chosen for the ballot by The National Academy of Recording Artists for the 2006 Grammy Awards for both Best Male Pop Performance and Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist .
My lessons and classes are granted accreditation by New York University s Gallatin School of Individualized Study . If you have interest in this feature, please advise me during our initial phone conversation.
The following styles are taught: R&B, Pop, Jazz, Rock, Metal, Hip Hop, Standards, Broadway and Alternative.
Please respond via e-mail or to phone number: 201-391-1922. All calls will be returned on the weekend, or sooner if possible. Thank you.

Name: Martha Howard, Private Voice Instructor URL: www.marthahowardvoice.com
For over twenty years, Martha Howard has taught private voice, directed choirs, worked as a high school music teacher and church music director, and written and arranged for various performance groups. In the classroom, rehearsal hall, and private studio, Martha connects with her students and facilitates their understanding of singing and love of music. It is her utmost goal to help each and every singer reach their full potential while enjoying the process of learning and growing as a performer. Martha's vocal instruction is based in the Italian bel canto tradition, which emphasizes purity and evenness of tone across all registers and vocal agility. It is her highest priority to instill in her students a healthy foundation and a solid understanding of proper singing that can lead to success in any style a student wishes to sing. Many of Martha's students are interested in pursuing musical theater performance opportunities. Some are interested in classical and serious art repertoire. Many enjoy contemporary pop/rock music. Others are recreational singers who are looking to just become more comfortable with the act of singing and want to "find" their voice. Martha's style of teaching can reach the student who is just beginning as well as those who have had years of experience and are far along in their vocal studies. Martha's students range in age from 10 to adult. Lessons are taught in Martha's home studio in Cherry Hill, New Jersey where she uses a computer system based around Apple Studio Logic software and other state-of-art equipment to assist in her teaching. Please visit Martha's website to learn more about her teaching, read testimonials from students, and find out more about lesson procedures.

Name: Alicia Briceland URL: www.singalexander.com
I am a classically-trained dramatic soprano, voice teacher and a certified teacher of the Alexander Technique with a passion for helping singers discover their true voices! My teaching is based on the Swedish-Italian Technique and I provide a supportive, positive atmosphere that allows you to learn a healthy technique, develop your voice to its maximum potential and reach your desired goals. I have teaching studios both in New York, NY (Manhattan) and Bloomfield, NJ.
Often classical singers are held back from reaching their true potential. Many singers study, practice and have their techniques progress to a certain extent, only to hit a plateau and not be able to improve any further. Other singers work hard to gain a good technique, but are then told that their voices lack the necessary polish for a professional career. Larger-voiced singers often have difficulty finding teachers to help them open their voices completely. Some singers audition sucessfully and start performance careers, but develop vocal problems and consequently feel insecure about their techniques. These situations are all extremely frustrating, forcing singers to go from studio to studio in search of a teacher with an answer.
There are several crucial ways in which the vocal folds have to function in order to reach the highest level of professional sound possible for each unique voice. They are utilizing the thin edge function of the vocal folds, correct nasal resonance (or ring) through the small "ng" thread, and the correct approximation of the vocal folds through gentle cord closure. These need to be integrated into the technique while having a relaxed, lowered larynx, an open oro-pharngeal space and appropriate low-body support. The vast majority of teachers do not address these functions, because they are either not aware of them or they lack the right tools. However, these functions are absolutely necessary for a healthy technique and for singers to be able to reach their maximum potential.
I address these functions very directly with students using specific exercises inherited from great pedagogues of the past like Manuel Garcia II, Dr. Gillis Brat, Alan Lindquest, William Vennard and my own voice teacher, the magnificent David Jones. I guide singers to use the exercises correctly to develop these healthy functions in their own voices, as well as all of the other necessary functions like abdominal, lumbar and sternal support (apoggio), throat expansion, high, relaxed soft palate and oro-pharngeal expansion, a free tongue and jaw, and rounded vowels. The results are often remarkable. My students experience greater freedom, ease of production, resonance, focus, chiaroscuro (light-dark coloration), natural vibrato, flexibility, spin and beauty of tone.
These functions are of the utmost importance for classical singers, but are also very necessary for musical theatre, jazz and pop singers. The Swedish-Italian Technique can easily be applied to any musical genre. In these competitive times, everyone needs to find an edge. Having an optimal vocal technique can provide that edge. Such a healthy technique allows for more ease of production, vocal stamina, resonance and a consistent, blended sound that matches throughout the range.
A singer's instrument is not only the voice, but also the body. Singers alone as musicians have no external instrument, making how singers use their bodies even more critical. As a certified Alexander Technique teacher, I understand how the body works mechanically as a whole and how the parts affect each other. With hands-on input, I am able to give my students the direct experience of spending less effort when singing, allowing for more ease and openness in the body and thereby improving the quality of the sound. Over time, this ease becomes gradually incorporated into the singers' good habits for singing.
Some singers prefer a fast track and take supplimentary private Alexander Technique lessons, in addition to voice lessons. I currently offer these in my studio in Bloomfield, NJ. In a lesson, I offer the student a new experience of freedom and openness in the body through hands-on input. Most students feel a radical difference in their bodies before and after a lesson. After enough experience, these positive changes can then be induced by the student whenever needed in daily life, including while singing.
I currently have openings in both my New Jersey and New York City studios. Please contact me at aliciabriceland@hotmail.com or at 917 702-6657 to discuss your vocal journey and set up a first lesson!

Name: Lori Joachim Fredrics URL: sites.google.com/site/ljfvoice
I bring over twenty years experience training all levels of singers from beginners to professionals in the United States and Europe. My students have appeared internationally in opera and concerts,on Broadway and in London's West End and include several signed recording artists.
Each person who comes for lessons with me is considered to be an artist in development. I use all the tools at my disposal including my understanding of vocal anatomy and function, the physics of sound and the various different techniques I have learned from over a dozen master teachers and singers with whom I have studied.
In order for a person to sing well many different factors have to come together simultaneously. The interpretive, musical and physical/technical aspects ALL need to be there. However when learning to sing in a lesson,a singer can only focus on one element at a time.
In lessons I seek to assist a singer to perfect each element, the breathing, the placement/resonance, the throat position, the musical and stylistic element and of course, the dramatic interpretation. We work on mastering each element until it works naturally and automatically. I can coach the standard operatic repertoire for all voice types, along with German Lieder, French Melodie , classic and contemporary musical theatre and jazz standards.
I have a special interest in the elimination of performance anxiety issues and experience working with other vocal health professionals in the rehabilitation of damaged or abused voices.
Presently, I can offer space(winter 2010) for new students as I have very recently moved my busy studio from London to northern New Jersey.

When I was in highschool, it was impossible to find a good voice teacher. I was forced to study with a teacher who over-charged, and taught me bad habits. It took a 5 year break from music for me to erase those bad habits.

Learn the right way, the first time. I am currently an Operatic Tenor under contract with New Jersey Opera.

Name: Natalie Megules--New Jersey Voice Teacher
Natalie holds a degree in Voice Performance from Westminster Choir College and is an active performer in several opera companies in New York City. She has taught a wide range of students, from 60-year-old retirees to elementary and middle school drama camp students, producing full musicals and teaching the basics of voice and acting.
When she teaches, her first focus is always on the free, clear, healthy use of the instrument. She uses acting techniques to guide her students in breaking down their pieces into beats and intention, just like a spoken monologue. Don Greene's method of reducing performance anxiety for performers of all kinds, from professional athletes to musicians, works wonders for new singers. If all melds, they will perform with a free and clear instrument while telling a story and having some fun!
Most importantly, Natalie focuses on a gentle and positive approach. The voice is a unique instrument because it is part of the person as a whole. An encouraging and nurturing environment ensures that her students can be as free to explore their instrument as possible.
All genres of music are welcome.

Name: Rachel Menconi (Voice Teacher/Performer)
Rachel Menconi (Voice Teacher/Recording Artist/Owner of The Menconi Performance Studio)
BEL CANTO BENEFITS:
- Can't hurt your voice
- Bigger voice
- No more pitch/harmony problems
- Never crack or be hoarse again unless you are sick
- Learn how to warm up your own voice outside of your lesson the most efficient way possible
- Better breath control/tone quality
- Gain confidence
- No more tension
- Become an artist
- Gain knowledge you can use both while practicing and performing
- If you are classically trained, you can sing anything
NOTE: This is real Bel canto singing technique but for the modern singer. Students who use this technique DO NOT sound like old opera singers. Students are able to sing ANY style of music even Opera (if they choose) easily and DO NOT age their voices! This means students become the best singers/performers they can be AND keep their voices for the rest of their lives!
THE ULTIMATE GOAL:
Rachel's goal is to not only make all her students the best performers and singers they can be but to also give them all the proper tools they need to become self-sufficient. Being a self-sufficient singer/performer just means that they can assess a problem on their own and then know how to fix it without damaging their voice. If the student can master that, then they don t need a voice teacher anymore and in a way become their own voice teachers. Of course this takes many years to master and doesn t happen over night. It takes time and dedication.
CREDENTIALS:
Certified member of NATS, member of The Recording Academy (The Grammys), member of BMI, member of The North American Music Association, 17+ years of Bel Canto vocal training, 12+ years of musical theatre training, 8+ years acting training, 10+ years of song writing experience, 4+ years of recording studio experience, has starred in 40+ musicals/20+ Off-Broadway Cabarets, and is the President/Founder of both Sunshine Face Productions and Sunshine Face music publishing.
ABOUT THE TEACHER: Rachel Menconi has been performing/training for her entire life. Rachel has been teaching both voice and acting to children, teens, & to adults for 9+ years. Whether working in a private lesson or in a class (small by design), she is able to focus on each student's individual needs and develop their skills (singing, acting, and performance) at a comfortable pace. She challenges each person without intimidation. Rachel understands that each student learns differently. She is also a performer so Rachel understands her students every step of the way, because she's been there too. Even the best performers get nervous. Rachel teaches her students the tricks of getting rid of stage fright & ways to always have a great performance even when life gets you down.
Even though this is a classical based technique; students are not required to sing classical music. DON'T BE FOOLED! Just because a person sings classical music, doesn't mean they are being classically trained. Sing All Genres (Broadway, Rock, Country, Pop, Punk, Alternative...etc.) with ease while using Bel Canto technique!
Weekly Private Lessons and PSP: Professional Student Program (Weekly Private Lessons AND Group Performance Classes) available! To set up a first voice lesson with Rachel Menconi please call 1-201-873-1150 or email her at Rachact2@gmail.com.
NOTE: To become a student, you must be serious about performing. If you do not plan on singing professionally as a career, you must at least plan on some form of public performance (talent shows, open mic nights, holidays, weddings, Church, Temple...etc) and/or be dedicated to becoming the best you can be.
*All lessons and classes are taught at The Menconi Performance Studio (Private Home Studio) in Montvale NJ.*

Dr. Miller has one basic goal for all of her students, regardless of the type of music they choose to sing: singing should be done in a healthy way.

Name: Schnurman Voice Studio
Located in historic Cranbury, New Jersey, the Schnurman Voice Studio has been the leading and premier school in Central New Jersey to learn to sing, since 1989. Steven Schnurman, the founder and lead teacher, received his bachelor's and master's degrees in music from the world renowned Juilliard School, in Lincoln Center, New York.
While at Juilliard, Steven learned comprehensive vocal technique from one of the greatest teachers of her day, Beverley Johnson, who taught many professional operatic and Broadway singers. In his decades of teaching, Steven has further honed this technique, making it his own by bringing it to new levels of excellence.
Schnurman teaches amateurs and professionals alike to sing confidently and securely. Opera singers and students, as well as aspiring singers of all types of music, from rock to classical, who desire to really learn what they need to grow into their potential and beyond, can greatly benefit from this technique.
The vocal technique that students learn is marked by honesty and clarity in vocal production. Students will find vocal difficulties met by Steven's precise problem-solving abilities, which sets him apart from the typical voice teacher. At the Schnurman Voice Studio, you don't simply 'sing through' music, never really learning to sing, but you 'grow through' music as you can really quantify your progress from week to week.
The student truly comes to learn to sing confidently and with understanding in a warm, welcoming and friendly atmosphere

Alexander Technique in New Jersey
Name: Alicia Briceland URL: www.singalexander.com
I am a classically-trained dramatic soprano, voice teacher and a certified teacher of the Alexander Technique with a passion for helping singers discover their true voices! My teaching is based on the Swedish-Italian Technique and I provide a supportive, positive atmosphere that allows you to learn a healthy technique, develop your voice to its maximum potential and reach your desired goals. I have teaching studios both in New York, NY (Manhattan) and Bloomfield, NJ.
Often classical singers are held back from reaching their true potential. Many singers study, practice and have their techniques progress to a certain extent, only to hit a plateau and not be able to improve any further. Other singers work hard to gain a good technique, but are then told that their voices lack the necessary polish for a professional career. Larger-voiced singers often have difficulty finding teachers to help them open their voices completely. Some singers audition sucessfully and start performance careers, but develop vocal problems and consequently feel insecure about their techniques. These situations are all extremely frustrating, forcing singers to go from studio to studio in search of a teacher with an answer.
There are several crucial ways in which the vocal folds have to function in order to reach the highest level of professional sound possible for each unique voice. They are utilizing the thin edge function of the vocal folds, correct nasal resonance (or ring) through the small "ng" thread, and the correct approximation of the vocal folds through gentle cord closure. These need to be integrated into the technique while having a relaxed, lowered larynx, an open oro-pharngeal space and appropriate low-body support. The vast majority of teachers do not address these functions, because they are either not aware of them or they lack the right tools. However, these functions are absolutely necessary for a healthy technique and for singers to be able to reach their maximum potential.
I address these functions very directly with students using specific exercises inherited from great pedagogues of the past like Manuel Garcia II, Dr. Gillis Brat, Alan Lindquest, William Vennard and my own voice teacher, the magnificent David Jones. I guide singers to use the exercises correctly to develop these healthy functions in their own voices, as well as all of the other necessary functions like abdominal, lumbar and sternal support (apoggio), throat expansion, high, relaxed soft palate and oro-pharngeal expansion, a free tongue and jaw, and rounded vowels. The results are often remarkable. My students experience greater freedom, ease of production, resonance, focus, chiaroscuro (light-dark coloration), natural vibrato, flexibility, spin and beauty of tone.
These functions are of the utmost importance for classical singers, but are also very necessary for musical theatre, jazz and pop singers. The Swedish-Italian Technique can easily be applied to any musical genre. In these competitive times, everyone needs to find an edge. Having an optimal vocal technique can provide that edge. Such a healthy technique allows for more ease of production, vocal stamina, resonance and a consistent, blended sound that matches throughout the range.
A singer's instrument is not only the voice, but also the body. Singers alone as musicians have no external instrument, making how singers use their bodies even more critical. As a certified Alexander Technique teacher, I understand how the body works mechanically as a whole and how the parts affect each other. With hands-on input, I am able to give my students the direct experience of spending less effort when singing, allowing for more ease and openness in the body and thereby improving the quality of the sound. Over time, this ease becomes gradually incorporated into the singers' good habits for singing.
Some singers prefer a fast track and take supplimentary private Alexander Technique lessons, in addition to voice lessons. I currently offer these in my studio in Bloomfield, NJ. In a lesson, I offer the student a new experience of freedom and openness in the body through hands-on input. Most students feel a radical difference in their bodies before and after a lesson. After enough experience, these positive changes can then be induced by the student whenever needed in daily life, including while singing.
I currently have openings in both my New Jersey and New York City studios. Please contact me at aliciabriceland@hotmail.com or at 917 702-6657 to discuss your vocal journey and set up a first lesson!
