"I personally train you to RIFF & perform" -

R&B singing lessons, Praise & Gospel singing lessons
Hip Hop singing lessons, Pop, Jazz, & B'way singing lessons

You'll get serious Ear-training, Vocal-strengthening (chest & head voice),
Riffing, Diaphragmatic breathing, Harmony, and...
"how to sing with feeling";
You'll be taught to sing with confidence - no fears!

 

You'll learn to play basic -

Piano Scales & Chords, read Key Signatures, and to read music. It's not hard!

Beginners, advanced singers to professional singers,
and aspiring songwriters.

Mrs. G's vast 28 year experience as a professional vocalist, pianist,
recording artist, TV talk/variety show host, and successful jingle singer 
makes her one of the most sought after and effective R&B, Pop,
Jazz & Gospel vocal coaches in New York.

She's very persuasive in taking her students from beginner-intermediate
levels, to the level that really matters which is professional singer, 
and pushing them to practice hard with total focus to build
one "sweet spot" at a time
.  

The sweet spot is - some small vocal item that needs perfecting.
"Break things down in sections in order to focus on one 
sweet spot at a time... 
to nail it by working on it for hours," she insists.  
This builds your skill sets - "big time!"
 

She reminds them that they'll appreciate the benefits of their labor
when they hear how "fabulous" they sound 
 in front of audiences...
hard work, sweat & tears = success! 

This year, 2014, has featured vocal workshops where her students work
together on vocal-strengthening, “Riffing” skills,
harmonizing skills, "performance skills."  They love performing
there in the warmth of their workshops developing the primary

“Skill sets” required for mastering all genres of music.

  The atmosphere in her workshops is very supportive, lending growth
support, and total freedom of expression where her students
are eager to... and DO grow.

  It also makes them work harder in their private practice sessions to be
prepared to present their "best" stuff before their peers.

 Let me teach you how to get over the fear of developing your singing skills to share with the world how "awesome" you are.  

     In this workshop, we'll work on building your "skill sets" (the set of skills
     you'll need to perform with excellence).  Her vast experience as a vocalist, pianist, recording artist, TV talk/variety show host, and successful jingle singer makes her one of the most sought after and effective R&B, Pop, Jazz & Gospel vocal coaches in New York.

She cogently takes her students from beginner-intermediate levels to professional, 
pushing them to practice hard with total focus to build one "sweet spot" at a time.  

The sweet spot is - some small item that needs perfecting.

"Break things down in sections in order to focus on one sweet spot at a time... 

and nail it by working on it for hours," she insists.  This is what builds your skill sets.

She reminds them that they'll appreciate the benefits of their labor when they hear how "fabulous" they sound

 after long hours of practice... hard work, sweat & tears = success! 

 

This year, 2014, has featurde workshops where her students work together on vocal-strengthening, and “Riffing” skills,

Student testimonials and new releases -


Kelly Ryu, from Seoul Korea

Kelly_11_8_111_resized.jpg

Gwen worked with me, teaching me to "Riff" for a year.
I came to her from Seoul, Korea for the specific purpose of learning 
how to sing R&B music, and how to "Riff" with ease.  I can now "Riff"
with ease and I LOVE IT!!!

When I returned to Seoul, I performed, and also built my own Vocal training
business.  Below is one of my students who returned with me to meet Mrs. G after
hearing me brag about her so often.  I love her!!!

—Alison Foster, Professional Cabaret and Background Singer, NJ, USA

"There're so many things I've learned from Gwen which are "priceless, and had a glorious time growing in areas where I needed a lot of development.  I've developed confidence and courage to perform anywhere!  She elevated my technical skills and helped me to build the guts, and passion to re-dedicate myself to my life-long dream of becoming a lead singer and not just a back-up singer. A major step for me."
