“What is so special about John Tedeschi? His generosity in sharing everything he knows about the voice, and technique, and how to apply it to any genre. He builds your trust in yourself and him as he guides you through the sometimes difficult journey of music. He can also be very direct and pointed when he feels that you are working below your standards, you can’t get away with laziness on John’s watch. He is an artist, and a fantastic teacher."
"I was afraid of tampering with my natural ignorance, but in a remarkably short time John's coaching has allowed me to sing better, healthier and has given me a realistic confidence in my singing."
"John Tedeschi's willingness to help whenever, wherever is one of his best qualities. Finding a voice teacher who always makes himself available to help is rare in the city, and John has always been there to offer overall technique work, coachings and voice lessons when it comes to auditions, and callbacks. His repertoire and ability to find material that specifically fits your voice is another great quality you'll find in John. I would definitely recommend him to anyone!"
"John is one of the most enthusiastic voice teachers I've ever had. I started working with him after a long running Broadway production I was fortunate to be a part of got its closing notice. I was nervous that years of stage screaming and other bad habits had done vocal damage. Quickly, he reassured me that, while my instrument may have been fatigued, I had nothing to worry about. Almost immediately, I had the confidence I needed to stand in front of leading creative teams again.”
"John Tedeschi is not your average voice teacher. He is a thoughtful and challenging teacher who makes it his job to cater to the specificity or your voice and more importantly, to you as an artist. Not only does he have a comprehensive knowledge of the voice, he is also an encouraging mentor. This combination of talent, wisdom and genuine support make him a truly special teacher."
"John is a wonderful teacher when I'm in or out the city. I need a safe place to remind my self of good technique and John is perfect for that. He makes sure I feel encouraged and supported. He is a fabulous vocal teacher, but he also gives great coaching on the acting of a song. He ensures what I want to achieve vocally aligns with the intention of the lyrics. I cannot wait to see where lessons lead!"
"I came from a theatre background with no singing training. I moved to NYC and tried out a few teachers - but knew I found a gem when I found John. He is approachable, and makes voice lessons fun. He tailors his techniques to you and your experience level, and really knows how to relate to his students. My voice has developed tremendously. It is due to my work with John that I have been able to book several Off-Broadway musicals and will continue to book! He's the best."
“Besides his unbelievable personal warmth and professional patience, the language and methods are highly accessible. His language of release and breath are extremely valuable. After the challenging vocal workout, his gentle coaching helps me to forget the mechanics of singing and simply tell the story of the song. That is exactly the kind of training that singing actors need, and is one of the reasons I deeply believe in John’s work."
"I can't express how pleased I've been working with John. I was rather timid at first about working on my voice and taking it "to the next level" but he sincerely got out the best in me with his technique, enthusiasm and love of teaching/coaching. He paid special attention to what I needed vocally to help me increase my confidence, range and build more vocal stamina while also learning to breath properly. Any chance to work with John is worth it. I HIGHLY recommend him!!"
"John is my rock. He always has "tricks up his sleeve" to help with any rough spots whether they be mental, or technical blocks. He will always find room for growth, never settling for "alright" or "almost." JUST as importantly, he will always tell me what I'm doing right. John is fully present, listening the whole lesson, and never stops raising my personal bar to make me the best ME! He is flexible and easily available, and simply a joy. Roar."
"John is a powerful actor with an equally powerful voice. I have worked twice with John on some very challenging material and he brought all his gifts to the work. Moreover, he elevated the rehearsal room and by his very presence the rest of the cast reached a higher level. John brings a seriousness of purpose to the work, a great sense of confidence, and imagination. As a teacher, he would push any student to go deeper into their craft and they would be lucky, indeed, to have him as a mentor."
"He's greatly improved my breath support, placement, and musicality. Whether I'm prepping for an audition for a musical, a theatrical performance or an evening of cabaret John is my go-to guy. In addition to that, he is a great listener with innovative and intelligent ideas that I apply to both my craft and my everyday life!"
"He was the first teacher I had that taught me to let go and let me discover falling in love with singing. His passion for his students is equally contrasted by his willingness to learn from them. John has always been a trusted friend, teacher and mentor to me. His technical approach to singing is clear, helpful and easy to understand. I continue to take lessons from him because he is loyal, knowledgable and incredibly skilled at his craft. I wouldn't be anything without John Tedeschi!"
"John is a life-changing mentor, technician, and acting coach. He not only has complete understanding of the voice and song interpretation technique, but he also is a supportive and loving educator. In our lessons, he pushes me to strengthen my vocal and acting technique, while simultaneously allows for questions and reflections, which creates an incomparable trust between us. His studio has been the safest and most beneficial working environment I’ve ever had."
"John immediately gave me a set of workable tools that I could use to improve my range, resonance, tone, and expressivity. His focus on the connection between breath, body, and awareness I found particularly useful as an actor with extensive physical training. His ability to explain the ways in which a song expresses character, employs playable actions, and reveals itself musically - is remarkable. And he's a joy with a sense of humor!"
"John's teaching style strikes the perfect balance of teaching excellent technique while also getting you out of your head and more into your instrument, and body. No one has opened up my voice the way John has. I feel so much more confident!"
