Student Testimonials


Mrs. Conley is a "passionate" gifted professional!
Mrs. Conley's Seven Hour Vocal-Strengthening Workshop is an experience like no other we've ever had. Imagine training for a marathon or studying for a state exam... The workshop forces us to have that same discipline for something that we actually LOVE doing - singing. There are six hours of intense riffs, runs, and harmonies. At the beginning of your first session you may wonder if your voice could handle working for another six hours, but at the end of the session you feel like you can go on a successful tour.  At the workshop camaraderie is built, and we learn from others' experiences. Our voices feel completely warmed up and we are energized to share our gift with the world. Mrs. Conley is passionate about her work and leaves us feeling enlivened at the end of each workshop. We would love to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the world and Mrs. Conley's workshops help us to be performance ready. No matter your genre of music we know that everyone feels the experience was well worth it.
Thank you, Mrs. Conley

Gwen Conley is a rare find!
Gwen Conley is exactly what you need to take your vocal skills, or your child’s, to the next level no matter where you are now. She puts an amazing lifetime of professional experience at your disposal with every lesson and you could not ask for a more positive role model. Gwen is more than a voice coach, she’s a mentor who will inspire and motivate you to set goals and reach your potential. We are so thankful to have found such an incredible resource for our 14 yr. old daughter. We could not believe how much better she got after only a few lessons and she never complains of vocal strain since she's been with Gwen.  We’ve been with Gwen for 6 months now and my daughter still comes home from lessons and sings for the pure joy of singing. She is a rare find!

She has "impressive" credentials - and is a very genuine voice/piano coach-trainer!
I've been to a few other voice teachers in my life. Each had different styles of teaching. Some said one thing while others said another, so I was never really sure who to trust as far as my vocal health. When I heard about Mrs. Conley's class I knew that she was different than other teachers. Especially from the looks of her impressive credentials, I knew I would be getting professional training. After I took the class, I immediately realized a difference in the way I sang and I felt confident with my voice. Thank you Mrs. Conley!

Mrs. Conley is the "real" deal!
There are countless vocal coaches in NYC but Gwen Conley is the real deal.   Gwen Conley has great ears and upon hearing me sing only a few notes she was able to give me helpful corrections that no other teacher had ever given me. She taught me how to properly exersize my voice and to use all of my resonators so that I have a more beautiful tone. Gwen is a great musician and has really good taste in phrasing. She was able to offer ideas for runs and improvisations that fit with my natural style.  If you want to sing with great phrasing and style, you need to study with Gwen Conley.

She's was "great" with my 7 yr. old daughter!
I took my 7 year old daughter, Hadassah, to her first private singing lesson with Mrs. G, and it was a very positive experience.  First of all, I must say that Mrs. G works great with children and did an excellent job of building positive rapport with Hadassah.  Hadassah worked on her vocal range for the first time and Mrs. G taught her about her vocal range and gave her some exercises that she could used to strengthen her voice. Mrs. G also taught her the beginning of a classical music song on piano and Hadassah was able to pick it up very quickly.  Mrs. G very much understands the character dynamics of artists and in particular aspiring singers even as young as my daughter.  Mrs. G is also considerate and thoughtful about what her young students are exposed to when they choose the songs they want to perform.  I highly recommend Mrs. G for private vocal training.  She is interested in training children to be well-rounded artists with an understanding of music theory as well so that they can choose their own key signatures and gain the respect and longevity in the music industry that they deserve, should they choose that path."
