Think. Breathe. Sing.

cultivating voices. art. life.

Think Breathe Sing, Daniel Klein’s Voice Studio specializes in uncovering and refining the potential of each individuals voice and bringing these abilities to light as quickly and efficiently as possible.  He uses his extensive knowledge of classical ‘bel canto’ technique coupled with recent breakthroughs in physiology and neuroscience. Additionally he brings his personal experience on both sides of the audition, as a professional singer and General Director of the North Shore Music Festival.

The studio’s focus is on young adult and early professional singers.  Many students come with a focus on NYSSMA, competitions, college and conservatory auditions. In this regard Daniel Klein’s teaching has been extremely successful with alumni attending such schools as The Julliard School, Indiana School of Music, Carnegie Mellon, Manhattan School of Music and Peabody. 

 

Sightreading for NYSSMA is the bane of many a young singer.  We don't all start at level one and work our way up.  I am in the process of creating level specific sight-reading course for each level.  The way NYSSMA works is that each level has it's own requirements, so I am including that information.

Preliminary Exercises

These are all using Moveable Do, and are here to familiarize the singer with pitches and names, and to drill them into knowledge.  I suggest you sing the exercises on the solfeggi syllables (as written), repeating 4 times as indicated in the music.

As NYSSMA has different keys in which you sing, I have included the initial exercises in all keys.

Level 2
