    I love working with Elliot! He brings a warm, positive energy to lessons and will help you find strong pieces to add to your book. He is so knowledgeable when it comes to vocal physiology and his techniques have really helped me to access the highs and lows of my range.



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to start by finding out what the student hopes to get out of their time with me. Do they love to sing and have always wanted to study it? Are they preparing for college auditions? Are they working professionals looking to hone their craft? After discussing goals, I like to do a few diagnostics to see where the voice is at. This could mean the student singing scales and patterns, or even a song they have prepared. From there, we identify a course of action and move forward.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Bachelor of Music: Vocal Performance - University of Manitoba, 2016

Master of Fine Arts: Musical Theatre - Boston Conservatory at Berklee, 2019


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I teach hour-long lessons over Zoom at a rate of $60/lesson.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Understand that in a one-on-one setting, you want a teacher that can tailor their approach to your specific needs as a student. Are you a visual learner? Do you benefit from the use of metaphor?
