About Cantor Rica

As a cantor and professional singer I have over 25 years' experience successfully training students. I have two expertise areas: voice lessons for any age student and Bar/Bat Mitzvah training for young people. I enjoy helping students reach their personal goals and in the case of Bar/Bat Mitzvah training, nothing is more rewarding than helping a young person reach their special day with confidence and new skills.

My expertise in music spans Jewish liturgy, biblical chant, Broadway, popular and Art song repertoire. I can prepare a student and also officiate at Bar/ Bat Mitzvah ceremonies locally and can travel. Although I am currently working at a local synagogue, I have flexibility with my schedule to accommodate regular weekly lessons.

My experience as a teacher spans over 25 years working in synagogues and privately with both young people and adults who want to become proficient in chanting Torah, learning Hebrew prayers, and learning musical repertoire. I am trained as a vocal technician to teach voice using the body correctly as an instrument. I have trained over 800 Bar/Bat Mitzvah students and have maintained a voice studio for both adults and students throughout my career.

Please feel free to contact me for more information. I look forward to helping you in your musical journey!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
