what people are saying

Ariella’s voice and performing presence are utterly infectious. My 2-year-old son will only listen to two albums. Bob Dylan’s ‘Blood on the Tracks’ and ‘Freedom’ by Ariella’s group Yeh Dede. and is a bit more sophisticated. He listens to 3 CDs. But he always reaches for ‘Freedom’ first. Thank you Ariella for helping to keep my family dancing.

I started working with Ariella to improve my ability to be heard in social situations and to have a confident voice for dating. I was expecting to get some vocal exercises to practice – and I did – but what I got in addition was much more. Through practices that initially seemed to have little to do with the voice I slowly became more confident expressing the real me. She also helped me listen to my inner voice and have the courage to speak its truth. I would recommend working with Ariella to anyone who is ready to express their true selves in the world. 

As a choir teacher in a local school district, I am always looking for new ways to improve my craft. It was no coincidence that I stumbled upon Ariella’s website one night during my second year of teaching while stressing about the pressures of my new position. Since I started studying with her, I continue to be amazed by the many great changes happening within myself, as well as in the sound and attitudes of my choirs.

Working with Ariella has not only helped me to become a more confident
musician and teacher, but it has literally transformed my life. Having earned both Bachelors and Masters degrees in the field of music education, I have studied with several excellent voice teachers over the years; however, none can even compare to Ariella and the work she does. She is the only voice teacher I have encountered that goes well beyond the physical voice—she takes a fully body approach to singing and thoroughly explores the mental and spiritual components as well. Her philosophies and guidance towards uncovering and embracing our own unique, authentic voices are beyond empowering, and I can only hope that I am able impact the lives of my students the way she has impacted mine. Ariella, I cannot thank you enough for all you have done for me.

Not only are you an exceptional teacher, musician, and life coach, but you have also become a dear friend that will forever be a part of my life.
