Students in action in 6-Hr. Workshop

"You can learn to RIFF & perform - believe it...!"

R&B singing lessons, Praise & Gospel singing lessons
Hip Hop, 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 notation, basic scales & chords, and fingering for playing
basic piano scales & chords- Gwen's newly devised way!

Gwen teaches music theory in a way that her students actually understand it,
and makes the "connection" between music theory and their careers as professional
singers and song-writers. You'll be taught theory by learning to play your
favorite song - breaking down the notes, chords, key signature, time signature, etc.

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

Mrs. G, in addition to bringing all aspects of vocal training to her students, also shares 
her vast 30+ 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.

In 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 fear, 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
It also makes them work harder to be prepared to present their "best" stuff before their peers.

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 to sing R&B music,
and to "Riff" with ease.  I can now sing R&B and "Riff"!!  Awesome!!!
