My students sing a wide variety of music, from Art Song to Musical Theater, from Italian arias to jazz.
Whatever you sing, you’ll learn healthy techniques based on classical singing practices.
Oh my! I knew that there was community support for Flight Voice Studio. But this? I had no idea.
I have been approached by an anonymous donor who will match funds dollar for dollar up to $2k in support of Arts Education through Flight Voice Studio! We have just a few days to pull this off if we are to meet our Sept 1st deadline. Can you help?
Just two weeks after seeking community support to help launch Flight Voice Studio, we have just $200 left to meet our $3000 fundraising goal.
*EDITED to note: as of the time of publication we have MET our $3000 goal! Let's keep going!(read on to follow our progress! Click here to donate now!)
Already, the generous support of this community has allowed me to...
Just $3000 stands in the way of Flight Voice Studio. A place where local youth become deeply aware of their internal voice and allow it to emerge in song.
Can you help?
Every donation, no matter how small, helps further our progress. But for those of you who can give a little more, there are some really juicy perks to express my thanks, and even some that will help you regain your contribution in just over a year. More details...
I am so excited to share this news with you. But first, I'd like to say THANK YOU! I couldn't be more grateful for your support and dedication over the years. Your enthusiasm for what we do together is contagious (as evidenced by a growing wait list already 10+ deep!). I am thrilled to tell you that our family is growing! Tell your friends!

ITHACA, NY - Some of the area’s most talented young vocalists have organized a cabaret on Saturday, March 19th, at 3pm, to raise scholarship money for aspiring young singers. The event, at the Unitarian Church in Ithaca, will feature popular musical theater numbers and desserts donated from local businesses.
The cabaret’s theme is “A Musical Theatre Geek’s Guide to History,” a journey through time told through the Broadway musical. Songs like “Glamorous Life” from Little Night Music and “All the Wasted Time” from Parade bring history alive, while pieces like “When You’re Home” from In The Heights highlight the world today.
“It’s so important for singers our age to get one-on-one training,” says Imri Leshed, one of the teen organizers. “The goal of this event is to give singers who can’t afford that a chance to grow like we have”
The singers all belong to the Body Song Voice Studio, run by Sharon Costianes, and while they credit Costianes with their success, she says...
Among many other skills, I teach my students:
How to find your own singing voice
How to practice
Basic music theory, including ear training and sight reading
Storytelling through music
How to prepare for auditions
Students also have several opportunities to perform in Studio Rep Classes,informal House Concerts, and a Formal Spring Recital.
A lot of what I teach comes through the lens of the Feldenkrais Method — that is, I foster exploration, curiosity and creativity. I came to the Method through my own training as a singer. Suddenly, my voice simply... emerged. Simply, easily and beautifully! I realized that I no longer got in my own way, and that I could fully connect both with myself and my audiences. The resulting change in my singing was greater than any I had experienced. My own voice continues to improve as I grow in this work.
