I came to Neda for an audition that involved singing a song. I have taken singing lessons for years and never felt confident as a singer. Within one session with Neda, I found my mix voice and vibrato. Ten years of sporadic voice lessons didn't do that, but one lesson with Neda did? YES. I felt confident within one session to be able to do a solid rendition of the song for the audition. After, I decided to continue lessons with Neda. Five months of singing lessons later and I feel so much more confident. My range has doubled. That's right, I am actually a soprano and not the alto I had been told I was for years. I feel energized, challenged, and triumphant after every lesson. It's pretty incredible. Neda is fun, funny, talented and professional. She is gifted at what she does. I feel very lucky to study with her. -Saba Homayoon, (CHAD on TBS)
I've had a lot of singing teachers over the years and I was very impressed with Neda's skill set and the sheer number of tools and exercises she has (many of which I had never seen) to deal with specific the challenges and limitations of my voice. She's always on the cutting edge of vocal training and learning new techniques, which I love. Neda helped me with my vocal fold paresis issue that I've been dealing with over the last two years, giving me straw phonation exercises that have helped me a lot. She's very effective at producing quick results and so much fun to work with. I would recommend her to anyone, whether you're a beginner or a professional, Neda will help you be a better singer.- Neil Hopkins, (CW's STARGIRL, LOST)
I have worked with many other vocal coaches, but Neda is the first one that not only has made a lasting improvement in my vocal technique but someone I really connect with as a friend as well! I have been working on improving my breath support for years, but she helped me make the most drastic improvements in only a couple of months of work. She knows exactly what words to use so that I understand and can embody the adjustments perfectly! Ever since I found Neda, I have preached her name from the rooftops. She has so much knowledge on vocal health and the science behind it, and is such a joy to work with!

In the few months I have worked with Neda my vocal training has taken a turn for the better. Neda’s healthy training techniques and vocabulary partnered with her positive attitude have catapulted what I thought was possible with my voice. It is an exciting time to be her student!
Neda is an incredible artist, teacher, and person. I made vocal discoveries within two weeks of working with her that have not been discovered in over 10 years of vocal study. Neda will push you to find the best version of your voice as well as the healthiest so that you can be the best vocal athlete you can be. You will leave lessons with her feeling astronomically more confident in your abilities.
Neda helped me prepare for several musical auditions for my school as well as auditions for productions outside of school. I loved working with her so much that I take regular voice lessons with her now. She warms my voice up, then we work on growing my voice, mainly my mix and head voice. She has me sing a note, then she has me use one of her tools, and then sing the note again. I can always hear an immediate difference. It’s so cool and makes me want to never stop. She also works on my mental game. She asks me about my goals for the lesson, she reminds me to be easy on myself and show myself grace, she builds my confidence and reminds me that I can hit certain high notes- that I only need to believe I can. I always leave her lessons having had a ton of fun while feeling energized, happy, and confident.
Neda has been an amazing teacher! She adjusts her plan to my needs and provided extremely useful tips and tricks for my vocal health! Highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their voice!
I was lucky enough to take lessons with Neda for 2 weeks over the summer. Neda is not only an incredible human being but an insanely talented voice teacher. She knows how to meet performers where they are, aid them in reaching their goals, and push them to excel in their craft no matter what they are singing. Neda truly is magic. She taught me more about my voice in 10 lessons than any voice teacher I’ve ever had and the tips/tricks she taught me about alignment/tension I still use almost everyday.
Neda is a master in her craft. We found each other in a time of my life where I was insecure about my voice and did not know how to use it in a healthy way. I have had vocal nodules for years and lose my voice constantly. She helped me with my confidence and how to use my voice properly. I can actually sing really well too? Neda did that!! She is so passionate and we can truly talk for hours. She's a beast and I am honored to have taken lessons with her. I'm a vocal athlete now!
Neda, I owe you my whole heart.
Never have I ever experienced such happiness in a voice lesson before you. Our lessons were like spiritual awakenings for me. I initially came in unsure of myself and my voice. Thankfully in the end, that is NOT how I left. No matter what happened in the lesson, each day I left EXCITED about DOING THE WORK. I was excited because not only did you provide me with amazing tools to use my voice effectively, but I started to notice the results!!! You helped me find the JOY in messing up. The many laughs, the encouragement, the breakthroughs, THEE catch phrases! The catch phrases alone are enough to win any student over! Thank you for helping me rediscover the beauty in voice lessons! You are a brilliantly talented teacher. Forever grateful for you and the time we shared.
