I have four children who sing in chorus at BAK and Dreyfoos and all of them have studied with Adriana and Chase at Adriana Zabala's Voice and Music Academy over a number of years now. The lessons have really helped my kids singing ability but it's much more than that. They are both very professional but also extremely nice, down to earth and they really get to know each student and their individual needs. They have helped my kids prepare for both BAK and Dreyfoos auditions, prepare for juries, learn to sight read, match pitch and be more confident and dynamic on stage. They also can handle my boys who can be distracted students at times. They do recitals twice a year and this gives the students a chance to perform for family and friends. For students that are getting ready to audition, I think it's also helpful to perform in front of an audience in general just to get that experience. In addition, it gives them an opportunity to watch other students of all levels perform. I would recommend this place whole heartedly and I'm pretty stingy with referrals unless I feel 100% confident about it.
