—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."  

"Shonta Renée"


Mrs. Conley, Shonta and I miss you and hope to see you soon.
The few vocal sessions she had with you took her to new levels! 
We've been  working very hard and have been truly blessed with
a group of guys walking us in the right direction and I've included
a taste of what we have been working on.  Please feel free to pass
this along to some of your contacts and friends.  Thanks for everything!

Stephanie Habib 


  Stefanie H.- Professional R&B singer & pianist, Paris, France     

I made my way from Paris to see Mrs. Conley because I felt she could put the

finishing touches on my riffing skills.  She 

 complimented me on being a tremendous talent and that after a little

"tweaking" I could be on my way.  That little "tweaking"turned out to be the

hardest drills I'd ever done in my life (!!!) but it did the job for me!  

Before I went back home to Paris I performed at the Village Underground, 

one of NYC's premier open-mic clubs, and got the surprise of my life -

I received an encore - I was exhilarated!!  It was absolutely awesome!!  

I love how Mrs. Conley helped me and I will come back again the moment

I need her only this time I'll be ready for the hard work.  

Thanks so much, Mrs. Conley.

Kelly Ryu & her student from Seoul, Korea
visiting Gwen Conley in NYC, 2013


 I believed in myself, that I could learn to sing R&B.  I came from Seoul, Korea

to study with Ms. G for a year to learn how to "riff" like famous

singers.  Teaching R&B back in Korea was my goal, and I was determined to

learn it in the year's time that I had. I worked really hard with Ms. G, and

sometimes I wondered if I was going to achieve my goal but Ms. G never

doubted that I could.  She always told me that I was a hard worker and very

talented and that those 2 traits would get me there.  She supported me while

I pushed myself, eventually convincing me that those 2 skills could always bring

success!  I'm glad I kept going because I'm very fulfilled today.  I'm back in Korea

now and teaching R&B to my students in Seoul and also singing and performing

on a regular basis.  This to me is awesome!

"Mrs. G has helped me to grow tremendously, vocally and professionally.

  I had a lot of basic training, but in a short amount of time

Mrs. G helped me go to another level professionally and to get ahead in my music

faster than I could have without her.  Ronnie Lewis


   Ricardo Abercrombe


Ricardo Abercrombie - R&B Student, NYC 

As a singer I already had pretty decent singing skills when I came to Mrs. G,

 but I lacked stage confidence when I developed my unique singing style.  

I had to work incredibly hard to develop it.  Mrs. G worked with me for about 3 1/2
