I am a Professional Classical Singer with 20 years in vocal instruction (All ages, levels and genres). I consider myself very fortunate to have traveled the world doing what I love to do, singing Opera, Oratorio, Zarzuela, Musical Theater. Learning to sing in a natural way has paid off and my effort has been recognized making me recipient of several Vocal Competitions and Awards in NYC. (HOLA - 2013 Award for Excellence in Theater; ACE - 2014 Award for Best Musical Production in Latin Theater in NYC. "Bésame Mucho")

Through my years of singing and teaching, I have learned from teachers AND students and have distilled these ideas and experiences into my own method of instruction that develops this natural God-given instrument in each student.”

I love being able to help others to achieve their goals, showing them the right tools that will give them confidence.

I am a native Spanish speaker for I am from México. I have tutor students in both languages (English and Spanish).

I studied Music and specialized in voice in my native México and continued my training in Rome, Italy for 3 years. My musical path took me to NYC where I have developed my technique and started teaching others the vocal technique, and I have prepared students for auditions and performances.
I am the Former Head of the Vocal Department at Harbor Conservatory for the Performing Arts in NYC, and Former Music / Choir and Play Director at Catholic Elementary Schools in Stamford, CT. I have worked with the City of Stamford - Recreational Services as a Vocal / Piano Instructor and also at one of the local Music Schools - Long Ridge Music Center in Stamford, CT.

For the past 12 years I have been judging singers of all divisions and genres for the Worldwide Annual Classical Singer Music Vocal Competition, helping students to enroll in Colleges with major in music and to Pro's to start their careers.

My passion is singing, but my vocation is teaching. So "If you can speak, you can sing" !

very confident and intuitive teacher

Virginia is an excellent teacher. I love her very intuitive style based on feedback and assessing and addressing areas that needed a lot of attention in my voice. She is also very charismatic and just plain fun to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Knowledgeable and Patient Teacher!

My 6-year old son had his first singing class today with Virginia. I am happy to write that I am very satisfied! My son was initially unwilling to attend the class, but the instant we joined the class, I was relieved! Virginia connected with him in no time! She was very patient and friendly, and made my son comfortable. After a few minutes I could hear my son following her beats and singing! That was a big achievement for me. I would definitely recommend Virginia for all those looking for a vocal class.

Wonderful tutor

It was a pleasure to meet Vicky, she was patient, thorough & knowledgeable. I was able to focus on the details of my voice I never focused on before.. how to be more confident in my voice and easy techniques to better prepare my voice. I was very impressed, Vicky is the perfect teacher for me ! I am looking forward to our next session.
