It is my great passion to provide young people with the foundation for solid, life-long vocal technique and the confidence that instills. I’m deeply committed to nurturing each student’s uniqueness– particularly those in that impressionable teen age group.  I know how it felt to have teachers who loved teaching and cared about my growth.  In this world of immediate gratification and ‘quick fixes’, I believe in developing discipline and a work ethic while also being sensitive to the reality of the over scheduled pre-college teen. Consistent practice at home between lessons is a must and is essential for improvement; confidence building and greater self esteem are usually added benefits.


I frequently work with La Guardia High School students, performers referred by industry professionals, voice therapists and laryngologists. My young students have been recipients of Young Arts Presidential Scholarship and finalist Awards & have been featured on Broadway and National Tours in:

Frequently Asked Questions

Lessons

Are lessons right for my child at this time?

Phone interview or initial lesson will help us determine if the match and timing are right for lessons. For  children 13 and under or those unable commit to regular practice, I recommend searching the “Find a Teacher” listings at www.nyst.org (New York Singing Teachers’ Association).

What can we expect from lessons?

The primary goal of these lessons is to develop technique for a healthy, long-lasting instrument. We’ll work on vocal and physical exercises to establish coordination of muscles (whether relaxed or activated) needed for healthy singing. You’ll learn to integrate the techniques into songs that are age appropriate and enjoyable to sing. If you have requirements for school or for auditions, we’ll work on that material technically to ensure you are singing healthily.

What are your thoughts about BELTING & do you teach it?

There are healthy ways to produce a belt sound.

Although many children and teens are natural belters, any young person who frequently sings belt‐style music ‐ whether Musical Theatre, Pop or Rock ‐ should be trained by a teacher who has appropriate training and experience in teaching 'belt'. Vocal injury in singers occurs most frequently in those who do not have proper training; even if the voice 'sounds good', that is not an indication of proper technique. Loud singing and/or belting, is high‐impact singing and should be taught by a well‐trained professional vs. by imitation of recordings and other singers.

I teach belting techniques in conjunction with freeing and developing of all the registers(including head voice). Healthy vocal function is healthy vocal function; I will not teach' belting techniques' independently of developing the entire instrument. The most 'belty' theatre, rock and pop singers work on their entire instrument as a way of maintaining the health and stamina of their voices.

Can I call for advice between lessons?

I’ll be happy to answer a quick question by phone or e-mail that may be pertinent to the week's lesson, a last-minute audition, or problem that your son/daughter may be having concerning their voice or their lessons. There is no charge for phone consults lasting 5 min., but charges may apply for longer calls.  Phone consultations can be scheduled, if needed. **Please note that texts cannot be received by the studio phone.**

What if we have to cancel the night before or the day of a lesson?

My cancellation policy pertains to ALL cancellations. Please read in entirety to avoid problems. Read Here.

Auditions

Do you help with College Audition Prep?

Absolutely. I have worked closely with college consultants who specialize in the performing arts. In lessons we will work on vocal and acting aspects of your college auditions, pending your needs. The most important piece of advice for the student applying to a college Musical Theatre program is to BEGIN WORKING ON YOUR VOICE and MATERIAL SELECTION AS EARLY AS THE SPRING & SUMMER of SOPHOMORE year.  Your level of preparation is key in this competitive arena, and it is one of the only aspects of the audition that you can control.  I suggest using a video camera at home for practicing.  Although no one likes to watch themselves while 'in process', this can be an invaluable learning tool -- particularly for making quick progress.  Phone, FaceTime or Skype consultations can be scheduled as needed.

Will you work on the presentation & acting for general/professional auditions?

Yes, we can work on the performance aspect of your material at any lesson.

Will you help choose material for auditions?

Absolutely.  I’ll also make referrals to vocal coaches for material when appropriate.

What is the difference between a voice teacher & a voice coach?

Traditionally, a voice teacher is trained to teach vocal technique (how to sing healthily)and a coach is usually a trained pianist who works on the selection, musical preparation and interpretation of repertoire. There is often overlap, but I am primarily a voice teacher and also work on repertoire in voice lessons, sometimes independently of vocal technique.

There are many wonderful voice coaches who can offer some general singing tips to singers. However, if the coach has not been trained to teach all aspects of vocal technique, remember he/she is not a voice teacher and does not necessarily have the skills to help you build technique, nor the expertise to know what might be best for your voice at any given time. The selections and keys of songs should be agreed upon by both teacher and coach ‐ especially for young singers.

What if my teen isn't feeling well but has an audition soon approaching?

I’ll help prepare your son or daughter for acting and singing auditions, pending illness or pathology. If there are vocal technique issues such as strain, hoarseness, partial voice loss or medical issues (allergies, upper respiratory infections, laryngitis, etc.) at the time of the lesson, vocal health issues are given proper attention first. I may suggest changing a song, a key or rescheduling the audition. See Cancellation Policy, should you need to cancel the lesson.

Parent & Teen Testimonials

"The best singing teacher is Lisa Rochelle. She has worked with almost all the leads in our LaGuardia musicals and most feel she has saved their lives. I think she is the best out there. E-mail her!"

Sandy Faison — La Guardia Drama Dept. Chair & Assistant Principal

"Lisa Rochelle embodies the attributes of the master teacher: Vast, successful, professional experience; a deep understanding of the vocal mechanism and it's practical application; a natural empathy that allows her communicate her knowledge, experience and artistry to her students.   Our daughter, Dorothy, has been the beneficiary of these qualities, achieving deep artistic satisfaction and professional success while still a young artist. With Gratitude."

Greg & Carrie Lorenz LaGuardia Drama

"Lisa has greatly strengthened my vocal skill, not only by helping me with technique, but by truly breaking singing down to the basics. From my first lesson to my most recent, there has been a breakthrough every time. Lisa is extremely helpful with helping one maintain vocal health as well. She is helpful, kind, and an overall great teacher!"

Macy McGrail LaGuardia Drama

"Lisa is a master at vocal technique.  Every time my daughter comes home from a lesson, she demonstrates something new that makes her voice sound richer and more controlled.  Lisa's commitment to and high standards for my daughter's vocal development inspire my daughter to work hard and regularly practice her recorded lessons.  I am very grateful that Lisa was recommended to us!"

Lauren McGrail LaGuardia Parent

"As the mother of a teenager who is serious about a career in acting and singing, I am very grateful to Lisa—for her relationship with him and with me. She quickly gained the respect of both my son and me. Lisa understands the idiosyncrasies of an adolescent young man, yet knows how to inspire him--facilitating his musical progress and insuring he feels good about his work.  Over our time together, she has been excellent at striking the balance between communication with me, and with him – while he matures and gains greater responsibility. I am indebted to her for our honest conversations and her commitment to him and his work."

Ellen Greenberg Aaron's mom, LaGuardia Drama

"Lisa Rochelle worked with both of my daughters when they were students at LaGuardia High School as they prepared for lead roles in their musical(s), auditions and a solo cabaret show. While they battled issues like exhaustion, nerves and nodules, Lisa was a steady source of expertise and kind support for us, and for so many others. Lisa is not only a skilled teacher; she fully invests herself in her students' well-being, beyond their vocal accomplishments, providing needed encouragement in addition to teaching vocal technique, vocal care and musical expression."

Sarah Reines Mom of Talia & Noa Bornstein, LaGuardia Drama

"Lisa Rochelle is a genius!  She has worked miracles with our clients and understands vocal health better than anyone I know!"

Halley Shefler — Founder, ArtsBridge, LLC; Performing Arts College Consulting

"Lisa Rochelle is an absolutely amazing singing teacher! My daughter had previously worked with singing teachers but she wasn’t progressing. Her agent sent her on auditions for Broadway and other Equity shows, but she wasn't getting callbacks. I did a lot of research, and chose Lisa because of her impressive credentials and training. I am SO glad I did!  After working with Lisa, my daughter began getting callbacks for Matilda, Mary Poppins and other high-profile musicals, getting to final callbacks on several, which I fully credit to Lisa's lessons. From the very first lesson, my daughter’s singing improved rapidly. Lisa looks at the “whole” singer, including vocal health: we followed her suggestions, and both my daughter's singing AND her health have improved as a result. Lisa she gives my daughter personalized exercises to work on, and she suggests products to improve vocal health. When she noticed my daughter’s frequent congestion and that it affected her singing, she recommended excellent ENTs and allergists who specifically work with singers and could address these issues in a singer-friendly way. Lisa is knowledgeable, caring, and truly the best singing teacher anyone – of any age - could ask for."

Trudi Rosenblum — Mother of Caroline, La Guardia Drama

"Lisa is a Master voice mechanic. Most teachers run students though scales and work on material, but Lisa’s lessons go far beyond those perfunctory and superficial lessons; she truly teaches the mechanics of the voice and its connection to the body. She is highly skilled at isolating vocal issues and then providing tools to maximize the voice. Her experience on stage and specialized education make her an excellent teacher with real-world industry insight. She is passionate about her craft and thoughtful about her students. Her lessons are productive and individualized to a student's voice. My daughter, who struggles with allergies and asthma, has benefited tremendously from training with Lisa. Lisa has impressed me on many occasions, providing support not only in technique and material but for the overall health and wellness of the voice. Lisa worked with my daughter preparing her successfully for her college MT auditions. She is an amazing teacher, resource and person!"

Theresa Mitola Mother of Danielle

"Lisa Rochelle is a genius! I credit her for getting me into an awesome B.F.A. Musical Theatre program. She completely transformed, and continues to transform my voice! I'm so grateful for her patience and for all the insights she has shared with me!"

Leah C Second Round on College Apps!

"My daughter began working with Lisa the summer before her senior year, just months before the audition circuit for college was to begin.  I cannot say enough about how incredible Lisa was in helping her to prepare both in terms of vocal technique and performance. Lisa is not only an exceptional teacher but also she has a warm and nurturing style that helped to instill the confidence in my daughter that she needed at a very stressful time. Suffice to say that the proof is in the pudding. My daughter was accepted as a vocal performance major at one of her first choice schools through a very competitive selection process.  I can recommend Lisa without any reservations!"

Debbie Brandel Parent

"Lisa taught a Voice and Performance workshop for 10 teenage cast members. Most of the young cast members had little, if any, experience in singing. Though only a single workshop, the results for the cast were palpable. As singers, the girls were more confident in performance and more aware of their vocal power and how to control it."

Luc Hotaling Drama Department Chair, The Chapin School

"As a vocal student at LaGuardia High School, my daughter had plenty of raw talent but needed fine-tuning and individual guidance.  Lisa figured out the physical issues behind my daughter's vocal struggles and provided a series of solutions.  Lisa's dedication and follow-up was as intensive as the lessons; she obviously cared deeply about my daughter's vocal therapy and improvement. Within a matter of months, I witnessed what her care and instruction produced.  My daughter's voice evolved into a larger, rounder sound with greater range and confidence. I would recommend Lisa to anyone."

Laurie Sude Mom of Ruby Fair, LaGuardia Vocal

"Lisa Rochelle was a godsend. My daughter is a vocal student at La Guardia High School. An illness junior year left her vocal cords and larynx badly damaged. Luckily, we found Lisa. Not only did she help rehabilitate my daughter’s voice, she also guided us through a very difficult medical nightmare with grace, patience, sensitivity and honesty. Before coming to Lisa we did not think that college auditions would even have been a possibility this year -- in fact, we were not certain my daughter would ever sing again. Just this weekend we learned that my daughter was accepted to the majority of vocal programs she auditioned for! There was no way she could have done it without Lisa."

Naomi Berger — Mother of Iliana, La Guardia HS Vocal Major

"When I first started seeing Lisa Rochelle, my voice had some serious damage due to prior illnesses. I wasn’t sure if I would ever be able to sing like myself again — never mind audition for music schools. Without her I would have never been able to be as successful as I was - I got into to my top choice programs! Lisa had faith in me and in my ability to rehabilitate my voice. Lessons focused on my individual vocal needs, instead of giving me the same repertoire and exercises as other singers. She equipped me with the tools I needed to practice effectively at home. I am truly grateful for everything Lisa has done for me!"

Iliana B — LaGuardia Vocal

"Working with Lisa has been extraordinary for my daughter. Lisa is clearly focused on my daughter's vocal health as well as building her skills and confidence. My daughter is already in a significantly different place as a singer from where she was even just a few months ago."

Laurie Hornik Mother of Naomi

"My daughter began singing as a young child. After 4 years of training with different voice teachers, she gained nothing except nodules!  Lisa Rochelle came highly recommended by a close friend who played piano on Broadway. I knew it would be a big commitment, but it was the best decision we’ve ever made. The results were amazing after continuous lessons with Lisa and some voice therapy. The quality of Sarah’s voice improved tremendously; and she signed a contract with Abrams Artist Agency!! Sarah gained tremendous knowledge about vocal techniques, voice care, has gained great confidence and much more. Lisa is not just a phenomenal voice teacher, but she is also a great acting coach and helps Sarah with her acting auditions. I could go on and on and words are not enough to describe how happy I am to have Lisa Rochelle as Sarah’s voice teacher and acting coach!"

Bernadette Kricheff Mother of Sarah

"Lisa Rochelle has been my teacher since I was 13 years old. After we work on a song or a scene together, I feel extremely confident in presenting it, and I always get great reviews or get the part! Lisa is such a kind and caring teacher, she always makes me feel as though I can do anything! Lisa has been one of the most positive influences in my life, not only in my singing and performing career, but I take a lot of her lessons into other areas such as school. Lisa Rochelle has made a difference in my life that will last forever."

Taylor Feingold

"Driving over 3 hours round trip for Taylor to have her lessons with Lisa Rochelle every week would be a terrible burden if it were not for the fact that Lisa has helped turn Taylor into the lead singer in almost every show she does(currently Mimi in Rent). The person who ran a Broadway workshop told us that "Taylor was one of the best, if not THE BEST singer at the workshop.” This is all due to Lisa's teaching. Lisa works not only on vocal technique, she works on your diction, tone, acting and presentation. She gives my daughter techniques to ‘shine’ on stage and keeps the very closest of eyes on my daughter's vocal health at all times.  We love Lisa and are very grateful for her contributions to Taylor's success!"

Marcia Feingold Mother of Taylor

"Lisa Rochelle has taught me more about the voice and body than anyone ever has. She is incredibly knowledgeable about music and vocal health. Over the last year I have learned to use new vocal techniques, not only in music but in every day speech, and my teachers and friends have all noted the improvement. Lisa gives the extra energy and time to her students that make my lessons so worthwhile!"

"I can say without any hint of exaggeration that Lisa Rochelle is a miraculous voice teacher. Having gone to a prestigious and competitive music conservatory years ago, I considered myself to have had solid technique before studying with Lisa. I had no idea of the potential for growth my instrument had or the unlocking that was possible through studying with her. Her knowledge of the vocal mechanism is limitless, and her kind but pragmatic demeanor makes her a powerful mentor; you can count on having a meaningful and dynamic lesson each and every time. I wouldn’t trust my voice with anyone else."

Jenna Dellacco - AEA Actor, Singer, Voice Teacher

"I have had numerous vocal technicians and coaches through the years.  No one comes close to the expertise and talent of Lisa Rochelle; she is the most knowledgeable voice specialist I have ever encountered. As a Cantor and singer with a 20-year career, I sing for my living and I need to be in top vocal shape all the time. Lisa is freeing my voice and giving me the tools I need right now, as well as for my longevity as a singer.  She is a consummate professional and a warm, kind, encouraging and loving soul; I trust her with my voice and my spirit and feel blessed to be studying regularly with her.  , Lisa offers invaluable performance guidance when I have a specific song to work on for a concert. I am so grateful to Lisa Rochelle, and you will be too."
