Learn to sing at Dance with Miss Rachel!
What is the right age to begin private voice training? This is a question that many parents ask, and there are some who believe that studying vocal technique is not necessary until we are in our teens and our voices have had more time to mature. However, when we wait that long, we may develop bad habits that actually hinder us later on.
While it is true that a child’s voice is only just beginning to develop, the time to lay the foundation is now! Private voice lessons at Dance With Miss Rachel focus on cultivating a love of music, building musicality, and laying the groundwork for healthy vocal production. Through exercises and games, as well as an exploration of many genres of music, we help children find their artistic voices and learn to sing with confidence.
VOICE + PIANO!
Piano and voice go hand in hand! While lessons will emphasize training of the voice, we also offer a package that incorporates piano study to add another dimension to learning musical concepts. When you enroll, you can select either a voice or voice/piano bundle package. Depending on the student’s prior experience studying either voice or piano, the instructor can adjust the curriculum to pick up where they left off.

"Miss Gloria" Makino grew up in Maryland and lived in Iowa before moving to New York. She has been singing since before she could talk, and started playing piano at age six. Her first experience playing piano for a ballet class was on Law & Order: Criminal Intent. As a singer, she has performed as a soloist at Carnegie Hall and 54 Below, and was chosen by Hugh Martin's estate to record his last song for the CD Hugh Martin: Hidden Treasures, which has been reviewed on NPR and France Musique.
