"Lisa Rochelle is a colossal teaching talent who is reverently devoted to empowering her students with healthy vocal habits. Students develop seamless voices that move easily between multiple styles and genres effortlessly. Lisa’s students take charge of their unique instrument;  ‘own’ their technique and are able to ‘forget it’ and be present and truthful to their storytelling in performance."

Kimberly Vaughn, Founder & Artistic Director, Kimberly Vaughn Performance Studio

"I can say without any hint of exaggeration that Lisa Rochelle is a miraculous voice teacher. I considered myself to have had solid technique before studying with Lisa; I had no idea of the potential for growth my voice had.  Her knowledge of the vocal mechanism is limitless, and her kind but pragmatic demeanor make her a powerful mentor; you can count on a dynamic and meaningful lesson every time. I wouldn’t trust my voice to anyone else! " read more

Jenna Dellacco, AEA;  Voice Teacher, Producer

"There is NO DOUBT that Lisa’s teaching, guidance and expertise was directly responsible for my first big job years ago (Broadway National Tour of Guys & Dolls) and that her continued coaching led to my other successes, including securing my new agent and subsequent Broadway shows. Once Lisa taught me how to turn auditioning into performing..wow...my entire career changed, and I began to work...” read moreread more

"As a Musical Director, I have called on Lisa when I have a professional singer who has a specific problem that needs to be solved very quickly, in some cases a few hours before a show.  I know that she can guide the singer through the choices they have, even when they are nervous about singing through an illness. I have also seen her take young people with little or no experience and transform them into singers who have a technique that they can rely on for the rest of their careers…" read more

"In the time I have worked with Lisa my voice has not only totally transformed, but I booked my first professional job and obtained my Equity card.

She will change your life."

Dory Lorenz, AEA

"Having studied with numerous teachers in NYC over the years, I found myself wanting. Enter Lisa Rochelle. The work with Lisa has been life-changing for me (and I don't use that term lightly). The tools Lisa offers are applicable to everything from contemporary pop to classic standards. To have a solid approach on which I can rely has made performing - particularly auditioning - an expressive opportunity which I now actually enjoy!! I owe this to Lisa. She is a remarkable teacher. And something of a secret weapon..." read moreread more

"Lisa has been an absolute godsend and a real game changer for my voice. I’ve had a few vocal coaches and speech therapists in NY, and Lisa is by far the most effective of all. I’ve consistently received compliments and feedback from TV/Film Casting Directors and my acting coaches that my voice has been transformed and how much more effective my delivery is. I credit all this to training with Lisa. I was also able to avoid vocal cord surgery with all the techniques Lisa taught me" read moreread more

bio

Lisa Rochelle is a NYC-based Voice Teacher and Vocal Health Specialist (SVS*) training performers since 1993. Specializing in technique-building for versatility, optimal vocal health and longevity, Lisa helps actors and singers achieve one seamless voice that can move easily between Classical, Musical Theatre and Pop styles while meeting the demands of an 8-show week, rigorous tour or long studio hours. Lisa’s students are professional performers (Broadway, Off Broadway, regional, film, television, and voiceover artists), committed young performers and other professional voice users (voice teachers, music educators, public speakers).  With specialized training in vocology (vocal pedagogy and habilitation), she often works as a *Singing Voice Specialist (SVS) in conjunction with medical professionals in the re-training of injured voices.

Lisa’s extensive performing career includes leading roles on Broadway and Off-Broadway, national tour, regional theatre, featured television, commercial and voiceover work. With favorite roles ranging from Fanny Brice in Funny Girl to Amalia in She Loves Me, Lisa’s first-hand understanding of performers’ needs allows her to provide her students with real-world perspective and career support. Beginning her professional career at age 14 (Broadway, television), Lisa brings to her decades of pedagogical experience a unique and special affinity for working with young actors and singers.

Conservatory, College Faculty and Private consulting positions include Marymount Manhattan College (2003-2016), NTI National Theatre Institute at Eugene O’Neill Center (1999-2006), The Institute for the Alexander Technique (teacher training program), and Artsbridge Performing Arts College Specialty Consultants, among others. Lisa has been a Guest Presenter for the New York Singing Teachers' Association's Comparative Pedagogy Program, has taught Master Classes in NYC in Belting, Vocal Health and Audition Technique at Playwright’s Horizons, The Neighborhood Playhouse, The Broadway Experience, Marymount Manhattan College, The Chapin School, and others.

As the ‘go-to’ vocal consultant for Drama department musicals at La Guardia High School of the Performing Arts since 2010, Lisa’s continued work with LaGuardia students remains a great source of joy and is her way of giving back the cherished support she received as a young professional.
           
Lisa’s whole-body approach to voice training encompasses aspects of many disciplines, providing a diverse toolbox from which she can tailor lessons to meet the unique needs of individual clients.  These disciplines include a strong emphasis on the Alexander Technique and Lessac Voicework. Lisa’s lessons also integrate revelatory self-massage techniques that were developed by her early teacher and pioneer vocologist, Ron Clairmont.  It was his mentoring that inspired Lisa’s subsequent vocology training while maintaining her acting career. Deeply influenced by her extraordinary early teachers (Clairmont, Stella Adler and Arthur Lessac), Lisa is a confessed life-long learner. Her ongoing work with leading voice therapists and specialists  Shirley Tennyson,  Joan Lader and David Jones informs her teaching on a daily basis.  Lisa has recently codified Throat Tension Release (TTR), a series of vocal self-massaging exercises (developed by mentor Ron Clairmont) that have helped hundreds of actors and singers over the years.

Lisa’s tenure on the Board of Directors of the New York Singing Teachers’ Association as Co-Director of the Professional Development Program (2006-2011) established her as a mentor to esteemed colleagues, and she continues to guide and support other teachers in their own processes. Other Affiliations include National Association of Teachers of Singing, The Voice Foundation, Actors’ Equity Association, and SAG-AFTRA. Lisa is certified in all 3 levels of Somatic Voicework™/LoVetri Method for CCM Pedagogy, has completed the full core curriculum of NYSTA’s Professional Development Program, has completed hundreds of specialty/vocology coursework hours and internships (Mt. Sinai/NYC; Anat Keidar, NYC/Westminster Choir College, and others) and holds a degree in Vocal Pedagogy and Musical Theatre Performance.

Lisa’s work is dedicated to helping performers achieve their goals by de-mystifying the remarkable act of singing.  She empowers performers with the skills needed to master their unique instruments and render technique invisible, so that they can be free to be ‘in the moment’.
