Dr. Andrea Saposnik has 25 years of experience teaching voice to students ranging in age from 5 to 92, and at all levels of advancement. She has taught singing at the InterHarmony International Music Festival (Italy), Greenwich House Music School, Broadway Training Center, and the Masters School. Her students are regularly cast in professional, school and community productions, and selected for All State Choruses. Many have continued their vocal studies at top music schools including Eastman, and Oberlin, and Berklee College of Music, among others.
Andrea values a healthy, embodied, and natural approach to all aspects of life. As a teacher, she aims to cultivate each student’s individual wishes and strengths, nurturing singers of all ages and levels on their vocal and musical journeys.
As a professional mezzo-soprano, Andrea has performed extensively in opera, oratorio, musical theater, and recitals, and has recorded for the Sony and Naxos labels. Her recent performances include Respighi’s Il Tramonto with string quartet in Arcidosso, Italy, and numerous solo appearances with the Long Island Choral Society, where she has also served as Artist-in-Residence. She has been a fellow at the Ravinia Festival and the Bach Aria Festival, and has been a frequent collaborator with members of the Bach Aria Group. Andrea is an active member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS), New York Singing Teachers’ Association, The Voice Foundation, and the American Guild of Musical Artists.
