About Maya Nova

My name is Maya N. and I am a professional jazz vocalist with 20 years of performance experience and 8 years of teaching experience.

I am offering voice lessons to students of all levels and ages. The lessons can take place at my home studio at Woodside/Sunnyside (Queens). I am also flexible to travel to a location at your choice if that might be of convenience.

An usual voice lessons usually includes:
- working on vocal technique - proper breath support, resonance placement, expanding vocal range, vibrato or straight tone, agility and many more components which bring relaxed and energetic vocal production without strain;
- building a routine for vocal warm ups;
- learning and interpreting material / songs of your choice;
In addition, I teach jazz music theory and vocal improvisation as well as working on specific repertoire and interpretation of songs.
For more senior students, I also like to work on composition and arranging of musical material.

With children 6 - 11 years old, I can work on introducing basic musicianship skills- ear-training, music theory; singing & beginners piano.

For Professional Speakers: I work with Professional Speakers introducing them with special exercises for developing breath support and finding the right vocal resonance.

Teaching Principles:
I am very passionate about sharing and introducing a healthy vocal technique to my students as this has been the foundation for helping expand my development as a vocalist and musician.
True love for singing and expressing someone’s “soul” is a big drive for any performer, but can be frustrating when lacking a well build instrument.
Finding the right resonance placement, closing the vocal chords and using the right amount of breath support in a relaxed and energetic manner is the base of a healthy vocal technique.

Teaching Experience:
- 8 years at International Schools in Singapore teaching students from 6 to 19 years old,
- 4 years on the faculty of LaSalle College of the Arts, Singapore - teaching students at BA level at the Contemporary Performance Department, Jazz & Pop.
