Extremely adept at paying forward what I KNOW as an active performing artist in all areas performance (voice, acting, body awareness, performance and audition prep coaching). I teach what I know from 40 years as a professional in the industry. Body, mind and spirit are attended to in our coachings.
I have had the pleasure of learning how to sing from Natalie since 2012.I find that Natalie is very sharp in pointing out the relevant places where I miss the mark in my singing. She has an amazing listening skill and she is gifted with her flair with music. She has been such an inspiration for me to be the best I can be in expressing myself through singing. With her guidance, I feel encouraged to excel and expand my comfort zone each time I reach a perceived limitation. She is a great teacher to learn from with her natural sense of humor and most importantly her love for her students to shine. Natalie, I thank you for being a fun loving and demanding (only the best out of me) teacher for me. Lai Meng SKYPE student in Malaysia
I'd never had a singing lesson before, but just ten lessons with Natalie have taught me so much! How to breathe correctly and hold my breath longer, how to strengthen my voice, enhance my vocal sound and increase my vocal range. My goal was to improve my choral singing and Natalie gave advice on breath control, phrasing, and sustaining those long notes, which was a great help. She is such a warm person and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to lessons. Because of her teaching I know how to take care of my voice and my singing is definitely improving. The guidance Natalie has given me will continue to help me with my singing in future. I feel more confident and enjoy singing more! Thank you Natalie! Colette Lo SKYPE student in London
A Poem About Natalie When I look at you, I see God shining through The glow, the power, a love that's true, so special in you You share your light with those you teach With all you give, it's easy to reach To make a mark, to reach a goal To open up our heart and soul It's God's spotlight shining through in you.

You are my mentor, therapist, angel and teacher. You have taught me so much about music, life and how to be the best that I can be. You have helped me through hard times and have given me a much better sense of myself. You have taught me that I need to be kind to everyone but not be a pushover. You have taught me that I have a gift and it is my duty to use it to my best abilities. You taught me that it is always best to be honest, to myself and other. You are the reason my relationship with my parents is so good. I am so glad that you have pushed me to be better; I could not be where I am without you. I look up to you so much; you are so kind and beautiful. You really are a goddess. Your talent and heart are larger than life. I can never thank you enough for all the skills you have given me, both the life skills and the vocal skills. My voice has grown immensely because of you and so have I. Thank you so much for everything. I love you! Ilana Friedman student
