"I just want you to know that you are by far one of the best teachers I've ever had, and you have taught me so much--not just about music, but how to keep a positive attitude and to believe in myself. You also made my voice lessons the highlight of my day and something to look forward to every week. When I first came to you, I didn't know the first thing about singing--and now, here I am, ready to go off to college with a good music scholarship. Thank you for everything."
I studied voice with Gina for nearly two years and she was a great teacher through and through. She pushed me to try songs and vocalises that expanded my vocal capabilities, but never forced me to perform pieces I wasn't comfortable with. With her I found my vibrato naturally and managed to expand my range beyond what I expected (and for a very reasonable price). I still use the warm ups she taught me to this day. She was a joy to work with.
Gina is a teacher who displays a deep degree of dedication. I have had the opportunity to hear her students before they studied with her and again after. Not only was there great improvement, but they became "singers" with depth and emotion.
