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

Mrs. G not only brings her technical vocal training to the equation, but she also offers
her vast 28 years of experience as a professional vocalist, pianist, recording artist,
TV talk/variety show host, and successful on-camera commercial actor, and jingle singer - which 
makes her one
 of the most sought after and effective "Riffing", R&B, Pop, Jazz & Gospel vocal coaches
in New York City.  She teaches her students from her experience necessary performance skills,
 and the necessary business approach required to build a successful, happy, and financially rewarding singing
career.  She shares info on how to keep themselves and their voices healthy - diet, workout, REST,
and moving
 towards their dream career.  "She breaks things down in order for her students focus on
1 Skill Set at a time... working on it for 6-days a week, over a period of months, in order to
"master" that particular skill set.  She insists that consistent, daily practice is key.

She trained at The Ohio State University as well as private lessons at CCM.
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!

In 2015 her 6-hr. vocal workshops students continue to work together on vocal-strengthening exercises, 
Riffing-flexibility” exercises, harmony exercises, "and finally, they perform the last hour to get a
true sense of what it's like to sing with total control over your voice!  They get the true thrill of what it's

like to perform without fearing the resistance of the voice - which frees them up to express
their song and sing from their hearts.

They love performing there in the warmth of the workshops where the atmosphere is very supportive,
there's a high, collective "energy", and total support and freedom of expression where her students CAN
grow.

It also makes them work harder 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, harmonizing skills, and "performance skills."  These are the primary “Skill sets” required for mastering most genres of music.

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

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

Student testimonials and new releases -

Kelly Ryu, from Seoul Korea


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


"They'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."
