Some of us are born knowing they want to sing, and some are inspired somewhere along the way. To tell the truth, it doesn’t matter to us one bit. We’re just happy you’ve arrived here, to The Academy: Music and Arts Long Island where we provide voice lessons in Commack.
Whether you’re looking to enjoy your first voice lesson, your hundredth, or your thousandth, we are here for you, at our school or in the convenience of your own home in the greater Commack area. We welcome students of all ages and abilities, beginner to advanced, as well as those with special needs and physical disabilities.
We have a staff of all university trained voice teachers and beautifully tuned pianos for our students to practice on in order to prepare for an upcoming recital, an audition, a competition, or for the enjoyment of family and friends at home.
We offer private voice lessons. Our school is all about excellence AND convenience, so whether you would like to come to our school for voice lessons or have us come to your home in Commack (for a small additional fee) is one hundred percent up to you.
Voice students are taught how to keep proper breath support, increase their projection and range, match pitch, have good tonal quality, and learn how to be comfortable performing with excellent stage presence. Vocal students also learn standard techniques, improv and composition – but since we want our students to be well rounded musicians, we also include music theory and history so that the music can be learned in the proper context.
Even though this sounds like we have a pre-planned curriculum, we do not consider our students empty vessels to merely fill with technique and information – far from it. We allow for a great deal of choice and autonomy with our voice lessons. Our students can choose whether they would like to focus on any style, from rock, pop, classical, jazz and blues.
If you’re a teenager, you’ve probably been patiently reading for a while now wondering “What about me?” Well, we have plenty for you too young madam or sir. We know the vocal competitions and exams you’re probably prepping for: ABRSM Royal Academy? NYSSMA? We’re ready for you. We have sent hundreds of students through these competitions and exams and they’ve achieved with flying colors.
Need some of your stuff professionally recorded? If you’re a Junior or Senior, we’ll throw you a private recital where you can invite anyone you want, and we’ll record it for you to use for university submissions (or anything, really).
Here at The Academy, we love childhood. We want to allow kids the opportunity to enjoy childhood for as long as possible, but that doesn’t mean they have to miss out on important building blocks and socialization. We came up with the idea of providing group music classes for kids ages 3 – 6. These classes are a beautiful introduction to musical notation, rhythm and art! Kids will play games, they’ll dance, they’ll sing, and they’ll grow. The curriculum is developed on an ongoing basis by teachers with their Masters in Childhood Education. These classes are a fantastic way for kids to meet friends and develop fond memories of music and play for years to come.

Now, for our students taking private, one-on-one voice lessons from age 7 onward, we offer short recitals several times per year (we like to show off!) so that students can flex their musical muscles and have something to build toward while they practice. We’ve seen it a thousand times: with each performance, our students become more confident, more self-assured, and more inspired to take on the next level in their progress.
Speaking of progress, we offer voice lessons in 30, 45, and 60 minute time slots. We really only recommend a 30 minute time slot for our beginner students, just to get their feet wet. Most of our lessons are offered in the 45 and 60 minute slots. Feel free to use your instructor as a resource to help guide you toward which time slot is right for you.
