Overview:

I am a professional musical theater and drama actress and a singer. I also have vast experience working in the puppet theater, which requires a big work with your voice. I graduated my first theater school as an actress in my home country, Georgia, and immediately was accepted to the theater troupe. It was a Russian speaking drama and musical theater for kids and adult teens. I played in about 10 musical and drama shows during nine years, sang in several concerts. In Moscow I was accepted in two theaters. Both were making musical shows, one of them was a touring theater, I played in there big musical productions for 5 years, we traveled all over the Europe. Another theater offered me a stage manager job and this made me interested to try myself in the directing theater field. A little later on, when I graduated directing theater course, I started making my own puppet musical shows, where i played all the parts - sang and talked to all the characters in the show. Along with that I was singing solo concerts once in a while, mostly using a musical theater repertoire. Currently I am singing in a band in Philadelphia - all original material, auditioning for Broadway shows and teaching beautiful students

EXPERIENCE

I started teaching back in 2015. I began with teaching small groups of kids and teens ages 4 to 18 in the regional art center in Moscow, Russia. I had singing and puppeteering groups. My students had recitals on the art center stage, went to singing contests and did some recordings. Soon after starting teaching groups I got private students. I moved to US in 2017. Here I continued teaching singing in private. Currently I am accepting private students, teaching an acting class in the local art center in Philly along with small singing groups.

METHODS USED

I am a vocal teacher, that means I am focusing on vocal technique more, but I also can perform vocal coaching when needed. These two are different roles. A vocal teacher works with technical aspect of singing - muscles, sound production, breathing, control of your sound etc. Your vocal coach works with intonation, style, musical and acting part of your singing. Depending on your request we'll focus on one or another or blend them. I am not using any particular method for teaching singing. However, I am familiar with many. I use a personal approach to every student. On my lessons I design the exercises for each student individually depending on student needs and requests. For my younger students I would use more playful way to teach, even though sometimes I would use it even for adults. In other words, I try to follow the personal requests and preferences. My goal is to keep the lesson interesting and fun and give my students as many discoveries as I can.

LESSON STYLE

I believe that everyone can sing! It's just a matter of effort, practice and time. Also I believe that singing is a great pleasure, not to mention it is an art. Maybe I could say that my teaching style is to let my students find their personality, their own voice, in a broadest definition. I want to show them how they can express themselves through the vocal technique, to show them how they can get to know themselves through the vocal technique. Maybe I can say, that my teaching style is a journey that I am taking my student.

I always was scared of belting, but Elena gave me several exercises to develop it and it comes out that it's not that hard! I highly recommend her!

Lena is really amazing at what she does! No matter how shy you are or even if you have a ton of technique training, her method works. After just a couple of lessons with Lena, I have experienced an astounding transformation in how I sound. Now I have confidence and willingness to get out of my comfort zone and go for it. I am so grateful to have found Lena!

I only had three lessons with Elena, but I already learned so much! She is a very inspiring and encouraging person. I am always very much in my head, but Elena knows how to get me out of there and get a better result. Thank you!

I am a singer songwriter and my only concern was that I didn't know how to sing harmony. But not only this I learned with Elena. I also found my falsetto voice, extended my range and found a better control to my singing. I highly recommend this teacher.

A relaxing atmosphere, sheer pleasure and efficient transfer of her knowledge to a student - that's what awaits you at Elena's lesson. We have achieved an incredible outcome and here we are - I'm a karaoke star))) In addition to professionalism, you will definitely be enchanted by her outstanding personal qualities and, of course, by her individualistic approach to each student. Thank you, Lena mas.

Elena is my favorite teacher! Before I met her, I didn't know I had so many high notes. I extended my range almost for an octave with her exercises. I have more control to my voice and better understanding of different styles of singing. Highly recommend!

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
