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" !

Fun and Patient Teacher

My daughter has been learning Spanish with Virginia since summer. When I searched for Spanish tutor, I was looking for native Spanish speaker, with potential common interests with my daughter. I'm lucky to find Virginia. She is a singer professionally and my daughter loves singing. I immediately knew this would be a good match. I was right! In the past 2 months, my daughter enjoyed every single lesson with Virginia. They would chat about music, classical or k-pop, daily life, k-drama, etc. My daughter often says to me that she's learned more with Virginia than what she gets from school. While I certainly hope my daughter has good grade at school, what's more important to me is that someone can lead her to the interests of different culture through the language. I feel that Virginia is doing exactly that! My daughter still doesn't feel comfortable to speak Spanish with other people (e.g. in restaurant, etc.), but I'm confident that with Virginia's guidance, she'll reach there soon. Thank you, Virginia!!

Knowledgeable and Patient tutor

She is a wonderful teacher and her class is very helpful. By the end of the first lesson, my daughter knew much more about music than she did before. Ms. Virgina H is very patient and encouraging, and she doesn’t hesitate to help her students with what they are struggling with. My daughter is always very excited about her class, and learns a lot from her.

Excellent voice teacher

Virginia has a way of connecting with my daughter. She is helping her find her voice, stressing the fundamentals of singing and connecting to a song even at a young age. Virginia has a wonderful, vibrant personality that immediately put my daughter at ease. I've noticed results after only a few lessons. Amazing voice teacher!

Enthusiastic & Encouraging

Virginia has been a wonderful voice teacher! I have always been very shy to explore my voice at a deeper level and have found confidence and continued encouragement with Virginia. She truly has the magic touch that all teachers should have!

Miss Vicky is a wonderful tutor!

Miss Vicky is very patient with me. She is also very kind and friendly. I felt comfortable with her. I have anxiety and she seemed to totally get that. She wants me to have faith and confidence in myself. She wants to see me through this! Recommended tutor for anyone that is learning to sing!
