About Elena


Bio

A modern fun approach to singing, songwriting, and piano. I'm Elena; a current pop Singer/Songwriter and recording artist. I've landed on multiple New Music Friday Playlists and Billboard Dance Club Charts, reached #2 on Canada Radio in 2021 with my single "Build a Ship", and received radio play worldwide. Besides my own artistry, my passion for coaching others to find their authentic voice has me working between New York, London, and LA.

A modern fun approach to singing, songwriting, and piano. I'm Elena; a current pop Singer/Songwriter and recording artist. I've landed on multiple New Music Friday Playlists and Billboard Dance Club Charts, reached #2 on Canada Radio in 2021 with my single "Build a Ship", and received radio play worldwide. Besides my own artistry, my passion for coaching others to find their authentic voice has me working between New York, London, and LA.

We will get along if you're looking for a teacher to hold customized space for you to find your own voice and create authentic music. I work with songwriting students (all ages) and teach music THROUGH the student's writing and passion. Students learn and internalize information rapidly when it's taught via songs and genres they're excited about, so I craft the curriculum to each student's interests.

Specialties:
Singers who don't feel like good singers. I grew up thinking I had a terrible voice, always felt strained when I sang, and no vocal coaching changed anything. I finally discovered Somatic Voicework which focuses on vocal science and physical awareness, and it brought out my powerful voice, a nice tone, and the ability to sing in ways I've never done before. I've coached many students in this same method and continue to witness incredible results.

Songwriting. For those starting as a brand new writer, those who have songs but need help learning about structure/lyrics/melodies, those who write regularly and want to improve overall, or those ready to release their music on Spotify and iTunes.

Piano. All levels. Learn basic chords for your songs, master your favorite classic or pop piece of music, or train rigorously with a classical method.

Additionally: Music theory, ear-training, basic production, artist branding and marketing, preparing songs for release on Spotify and iTunes.

Due to limited time I have to be selective. Please message regarding your musical level, goals, and aspirations to decide if we are compatible. All levels welcome.

Well knowledgeable

Taught me how to write a song, structure of a song and provided prerecorded beats. She wrote along with me. She showed me how to save my work well and was very reassuring

A0 to C8

Elena is a super helpful, knowledgeable, and approachable teacher. She gave me an awesome list of keyboard recommendations before I even purchase a class with her. I was also really nervous before coming to my first class because I had never taken a singing lesson before, but she calmed me down with her smile and professionalism throughout the entire session. On a scale of 0 to 10, I'd give her an 88 : )

Patient and Flexible

My kids have been doing lessons with Elena for a few months now. They are 10 and 14 years old. So naturally my life is hectic and scheduling can sometimes be a hassle. Besides Elena being super sweet, she is very understanding and flexible when scheduling for the kids. The girls really enjoy their sessions with her and she gives them good feedback and "homework" to do. Thanks for dealing with my crazy schedule Elena!!
