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.  

In her 6-hr. Vocal-Strengtheing Workshops students work together on vocal-strengthening exercises, 
Riffing-flexibility” exercises, harmony exercises, "and finally... they get to  perform the last hour to get
true sense of what it's like to sing with total control over your voice!  They get a true thrill of
performing without fear since they can now "sing with control of their voice" - from their hearts
with confidence!

Mrs. G will be starting a summer series of three, 

7-Hour "Performance & Coaching" 

Vocal-Strengthening Workshops 

for passionate students who want to 

move their performance career up to professional level.  

The first of the series will be held in July,

the second on a date TBD in mid August, and the 

third on a date TBD in mid September.

These workshops will focus on:


 *How to sing with the kind of "feeling" that grabs and 

holds your audience until they ask for more... encore!


*Finding and choosing effective Subtext that draws 

"you" into your performance zone - this - a must!


  *How to always give your best performance on stage 

with courage and confidence!


    *Performing at open mics and other events-with regularity 

to build your performance skills.

Kelly Ryu, from Seoul Korea
Ms. G worked with me for a year, teaching me to sing R&B and to "Riff".
I came to her from Seoul, Korea for the purpose of learning to sing R&B music,
and to "Riff" with ease.  I now do both with ease and great confidence!!  Awesome!!!
