New York City Voice Teachers
Zoe Kanter is a New York based singer, actor, and music teacher. A native of Baltimore, Maryland, Zoe began cultivating her love for music at a very young age. She attended Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University where she received her Bachelors in Voice Performance, followed by her Masters in Voice Performance from Towson University. She enjoys performing in a variety of styles from musical theater to opera, cabarets, choral music, new music, and anything else she can get her hands on!
The past four years, Zoe was a company member with Baltimore theater company, StillPointe Theatre. There she won many accolades for her performances in Grey Gardens (Big Edie), Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street(Johanna), and the U.S premier of Vanishing Point (Agatha Christie).
When Zoe isn’t performing she loves teaching and sharing her love of music. She has been teaching voice lessons for eight years to children and adults of all ages. She teaches classical and musical theater generally, but has also taught rock, folk, pop, and religious music. The main importance to her as a teacher is to help the student grow their love for music and to make sure they are singing in a healthy way, no matter the style.
Deanna Melendez is a voice teacher/vocal instructor from Queens who is very passionate about singing, creating, and teaching music. She is an alumni from LaGuardia Performing Arts HS, a.k.a the “Fame” school, where she pursued classical voice. She is currently a Music Education major at Long Island University Brooklyn, where she studies jazz, classical and even musical theater. She is also the Worship Director at her church, in Ozone Park, Queens.
Her main goal is not only to help her students reach their full potential in vocal quality, but to give them all of the tools and techniques needed to go above and beyond their own expectations. She is a firm believer in teaching her students how to breathe and properly use their core, through legit singing, and has in turn witnessed a clear, strong, and sustained sound with no strain or discomfort!
She is able to teach: Broadway/Musical Theater, Classical Voice, Gospel Singing, Jazz Voice, Opera Voice, Pop Voice, and basic Vocal Training. She has been teaching since 2015.
