Hello! My name is Sara, and I am happy to be a part of your musical journey. I am conducting in-person lessons at my Brooklyn Studio, and online. Please read on for more information about how online lessons work.
I offer the highest quality online lessons in both voice and piano. I use a no-delay audio program, which allows me to hear your singing in real time. This means I am able to instruct you immediately in the moment, without any static, skipping or audio lag.
The audio program I use is superior to Zoom, Facetime, and Skype, as each of these applications work with a built-in audio delay. With my unique approach to online lessons, the teacher and student can work together on rhythm, tone, and technique in real time, watching and hearing the subtle elements of musical training.
My goal is to help students become joyful, self-sufficient musicians. I emphasize fundamentals of breathing, technique, rhythm, song structure, and vocal placement. I use my training in voice and the Alexander Technique to help all students, both voice and piano, gain comfort and stability as they build their musicianship.
I guide students in being independent, adroit, and insightful . I find that this approach - rather than teaching students a few standard pieces from a pre-set repertoire - makes for a life-long musician. If you are interested in high-quality online music lessons, please visit www.brooklynlessons.com for more information on me and my teaching methods. Thank you!

Christie has been teaching voice for over forty years. She actively performed for thirty-eight years. She teaches individuals as well as groups. She has conducted college and church choirs. She has taught courses in Vocal Pedagogy and teaches courses in Diction for both Singers and Actors. To greater understand how body functioning can improve the voice and reduce tension, Christie studies and teaches "Body Work." Believing that communication of dramatic ideas is at the core of any successful performance, she has also studied acting, movement and performance enhancement techniques.
Each singer is a unique individual. The sound they make and the ideas they communicate are as unique as they are. My job is to help a singer find "their voice" through exercises that accommodate aural, visual, and kinesthetic learning styles. These exercises lead to healthy singing and reduce tension, improve breath management, strengthen the voice, and increase range. I am a proponent of the use of body work to improve mind/body connections. I embrace a wide range of quality repertoire in many languages and styles. I encourage and assist in my student's selection of a variety of appropriate arias and songs: sacred, secular, and popular. I believe that for a singer to reach their highest potential they must feel safe, secure, and valued. The best performances come from knowing what you do well, while continuing to strengthen weaknesses.

In addition to being a perfomer, I am also a vocal teacher offering voice lessons for Opera, classical songs, show tunes, and choral music. Will teach in homes near Rahway, NJ or at Shelter Studios in Manhattan. As a teacher my philosophy of teaching is to instruct in a positive manner which makes my students feel at ease during their lessons. I focus on what the students strengths are, and work on things that need to be addressed in a positive way. I teach students of all levels and abilities, because I sincerely believe that the purpose of taking lessons is for the enjoyment of it. Every student has a different set of goals when studying, and I am here to help them achieve those goals. What makes a good teacher is a teacher who is positive, uplifting, does not put students down, and who will make students want to keep coming back and learning more. I have learned to incoorporate those qualities into my teaching. Any time that I have gone to various teachers who teach in a positive way, I feel inspired by that teacher. It is my job to inspire students, because I want students to be turned on to music versus turned off to it. Music is a wonderful gift that the world needs, so I am here to help people enjoy it.
