What they are saying...
"Not only does Lindsay have an exceptional vocal instrument herself, but she possesses an immense wealth of knowledge of pedagogy and passion, which is the extra layer that makes Lindsay Rider stand out! She truly has a deep love for this field and is among the best of the best. Additionally, she is extremely diverse in terms of style. From her undergrad and graduate training of classical music, to her professional experience singing and performing pop, rock, jazz, soul, R&B and musical theatre, Lindsay Rider is a force to be reckoned with. Being a voice teacher myself, Lindsay and I have met up to coach one another. Our singing sessions have been full of great productivity! She really knows how to listen and identify a singer's particular problem area and offer sound advice to correct it. She will offer advice that will stay with you and only help your instrument improve over time. I have recommended Lindsay to several different people of all different levels of experience seeking a voice teacher. I highly recommend her to you! " —MICHAEL MOTT
"As a musical theatre performer of over 25 years, I am very selective about where I seek out training or coaching. I went to Lindsay Rider for coaching on a significant leading role, with an emphasis on identifying and addressing the technical challenges of the material. Lindsay's adjustments and suggestions were clear, precise and extremely helpful, with a real focus on supporting healthy singing. She is a formidable singer in her own right, with a solid technique, yet her approach is accessible to singers at any level. Additionally, she is a warm, positive and encouraging presence and a pleasure to learn from! I recommend her
without reservation." —JAMES BEAMAN
"Professional and engaging, Lindsay can effectively communicate the nuances of singing to a singer of any level. Her own success and comprehensive knowledge of the voice make her a sought after resource for many in the community. Her students have enjoyed great success and consistently show improvement." —ANDREW KLIMA
