‘Mrs. G’ has an amazing spirit and is a gifted musician.  She pushes you in the right direction and gets your voice to do what you want it to do!  She’s the perfect ‘Riffing’ coach!  My voice and my confidence are awesome!”
Vidal Loew

Mrs. G has “impressive” credentials and is a very genuine voice/piano coach-trainer!  I’ve been to other voice teachers and each had different styles of teaching, consequently, I was never sure who to trust with my vocal health. When I heard about Mrs. Conley I knew she was special from the looks of her impressive credentials.  After I took her class I immediately realized a difference and I felt confident with my voice.  Thank you, Mrs. G!

“Dear Gwen, thank you so much for your time and attention with my voice and speech coaching.  I did my speech to the Army Science Board and, unsolicited, my boss said my voice was free of stress, brighter, controlled, and rhythmic, and that my mannerisms and facial expressions were controlled.  I have been doing my vocal exercises to further improve over time.  Thank you again for this “secret” information!  I so enjoyed working with you. You were inspirational!”  Kelly Schlegel – Boeing, Aircraft manufacturing company  Deputy Program Manager and Chief Engineer

“Gwen Conley is exactly what you need to take your child’s vocal skills to the next level. She puts an amazing lifetime of professional vocal training experience at your disposal with every lesson and you could not ask for a more positive role model.  We could not believe how much better she got after only a few voice lessons, and she never complains of vocal strain anymore.  My daughter still comes home from lessons and sings for the pure joy of singing. Gwen Conley is a blessing!”   Ruth Steenwyk


One thing is for certain with Mrs. Conley's voice training, you will learn how to sing professionally!  After only a few vocal training sessions I began to see what separates Mrs. Conley from other teachers.  Mrs. Conley has a passion for teaching, an ear for her students progress, and is very accommodating, but no nonsense!  I can tell from my lessons that they are focused to strengthen my voice in a healthy way to a point where I feel like I can sing with control and longer in duration than I ever have. I'm learning to Riff which is great.  If you want to learn to sing professionally, this is the right place!
Matthew Mareiniss


“We took our daughter, Hadassah, 7 yrs. old for her first private voice lesson with Mrs. G who built an excellent rapport with her.  She taught her about her vocal range and gave her voice exercises to strengthen it.   She also taught her to play a portion of a classical song by Beethoven on the piano which Hadassah was able to pick up very quickly.  She’s also very cautious about what young children get exposed to when choosing songs to sing.  I highly recommend her for your child's private vocal training.
