My name is Linda. I am an opera singer and voice and piano teacher based in the Bronx, New York. I have been teaching private and group lessons since 2015 and have grown to love it. In 2018, I graduated from the CUNY Macaulay Honors College at Queens College with a Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance. I have performed all over the world and in famous venues including Carnegie Hall, the United Palace Theater, the United Nations, Avery Fischer Hall, and more. I now maintain a teaching studio throughout the Bronx, Manhattan, and Queens.
I started teaching privately in college, at the age of 18 in numerous studios throughout New York City. I have taught people of all ages, from the age of 5 to people in their 70s. Setting realistic goals and making sure my students have proper practice habits is key to ensuring their growth in both singing and playing the piano. I also like to delve into what my students want to learn and am open to working on any style, including classical, pop, rock, and more. It is a joy to help people reach their musical goals and watch them improve their singing and piano playing.
For my piano students, I like to use a mixture of books from the Alfred, Bastien, and John W. Schaum collections. I eventually assign more advanced solo repertoire as the student progresses. For my vocal students, I pick music based on their interests and vocal qualities. I have taught my students musical theater, opera, art song, gospel, pop, and many other styles throughout the years. I also like to make sure my students have a solid understanding in music theory and often give out worksheets that help them practice how to sight read, recognize different key signatures, and more.
My teaching style involves setting realistic goals and making sure the environment is fun and invigorating. I always like to make sure I am teaching my students what they want to learn, but I do occasionally challenge them by assigning more advanced material that I envision them performing or think would be beneficial to them. I celebrate all of my students' achievements and always remind them of how far they have come, especially when they get to more difficult material that may test them. Overal
Linda has helped me grow as a singer and performer. She helped me develop a head voice, and helped me to feel confident singing in it. Linda was always professional and pushed me to reach my potential. Each week I looked forward to go to class and learn more as I sung and got feedback. I now have a range when I sing. I recommend Linda to anyone is looking to grow as a singer, performer, or who just wants to learn how to sing.
Linda truly is a great teacher. I have had only two lessons and she has helped me realize that I am capable so much more than what I thought I was. She also talks about the importance of proper breath and even just enjoying and feeling what you are singing. I’m looking forward to have I grow as a performer through her guidance. Another cool thing is that Linda can help you improve no matter what kind of singing you do!
Linda is a fantastic instructor. My daughter is more engaged with piano than she's ever been, and she is making great progress. At first I was hesitant about online lessons, but Linda has been perfect. My daughter used to dread practicing and now she looks forward to practice and to her lessons with Linda. I couldn't be happier.
I've been working with Linda for the past few months and she has already helped me to improve my falsetto and my head voice so much! Before I started with her, my throat would hurt after singing for just a few minutes, but with the healthy techniques she taught me, I sing through our entire lesson without any pain. I've been singing for years, but Linda truly is transforming my voice and I'm very excited to keep working with her. Plus, she's very patient and encouraging, even through the challenges of online-lessons. 10/10 would recommend.
I've wanted to take voice lessons for years, but kept putting it off. Linda has been the most amazing teacher and I'm so glad I finally decided to go for it. Online lessons have been incredibly convenient, and I've learned more than I could have ever expected since beginning several months ago. I highly recommend choosing Linda as your voice instructor!
Absolutely will not find a more patient teacher out there! Linda really helped me with letting my true voice shine and how to take care of it as well. The online lessons where a challenge at first but Linda made the transition easy and effective! Never had a more supportive vocal teacher in my 5 plus years of singing!
I am a college student majoring in sound studies who wants to go into musical theatre. Linda is kind, patient, and KNOWLEDGEABLE teacher that helped me with problems that I was having with my technique. She helped me bring my singing to the next level. I can’t help, but recommend her to everyone looking to better their singing no matter the level you’re at. At first a bit skeptical about lessons online with my internet, but after taking lessons with her I realized there was nothing to worry about when you’re learning with Linda!!
I am a professional pianist, and I contacted Linda for a voice lesson so I could learn to be more confident with my singing voice to perform pieces written specifically for singing pianists. Linda was very patient in teaching me some basic vocal techniques so that I was singing primarily from my diaphragm rather than my throat which was extremely helpful. She gave me practical advice on moving forward with daily warm-ups and how to keep improving. I wholeheartedly recommend Linda!
My son and daughter have been taking vocal lessons with her. She has such a pleasant and positivo demeanor with the kids. She is working on helping both of my children build their confidence and love for singing. My son was a little reluctant to start but after one session with Linda he changed his mind. He is constantly singing around the house. My daughter is starting to feel more comfortable hitting notes that she used to shy away from. She is fair and flexible and I would definitely recommend her!
Just started taking a piano class with Linda as a beginner and she has made me feel more motivated than ever to learn and explore music. Can't wait to keep learning from her and grow as a musician!
A very patient and capable teacher. I have learned a lot in just one month under her instruction. 10/10 would recommend again.
I have been taking voice lessons with Linda for a bit over half a year now and it has been such an honor to be one of her students. I have made huge leaps as a vocalist/ singer and I now understand my voice much better than ever before! As a teacher, Linda is very patient, honest and believes in pushing her students out of their comfort zone! She is impeccable.
I am a retired professor. It is always my dream to be able to sing some day, but I was intimidated by the technical requirements involved in singing until I met Linda. She is a wonderful singing coach, knowledgeable, honest, patient, and inspiring at the same time. Not only she has amazing voice, but also has very good ear and can immediately tell whenever one is off tune or not. Linda combines rigorous demand for perfection with warm encouragement and repeated demonstration of how to improve. I am blessed that I had her as my coach. After having just taken a course on bel canto offered by her recently, I feel that I really have learnt enormously about breathing, resonance, vibration, Italian pronunciation, and several beautiful songs, among others. I most strongly recommend Linda without any reservation to any one who is thinking to learn how to sing.
My daugther has been taking piano lessons for about 1 month and it's amazing how fast she's learning, also Ms Linda is so patient as a teacher and my daugther feels so confortable as i do myself while i wait for her class to finish. I highly recomended her.
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.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
