  • Rebecca
    Sonia has given me the skills I need to know how to support my voice in a safe and healthy way. I have started to experience a freedom on stage that I didn't know was possible. Being able to trust that what I want to sing is possible and my voice will do the work I need is such an amazing feeling. I am a more confident and healthier singer than I ever have been in all my 15 years of singing/taking lessons. Not only does she support me in my lessons, but Sonia makes the time to come to my performances and gigs! She is the most skilled and knowledgable teacher I have had, after only half a year I can already feel the difference and have found a freedom and peace on stage!
  • Erin
    Sonia Nizny is fabulous! I have worked with her for about a year and am very satisfied with my results. She is so welcoming and does a wonderful job easing any nerves associated with taking lessons. I would recommend her to any person looking to work with someone who has a solid foundation and technique in teaching voice.
  • Jessica
    So thankful to have found such a talented voice instructor. Sonia is always on time, has never had to cancel a scheduled lesson, a talented singer herself and a wonderful teacher. I've been taking weekly lessons with her for 7 months to prepare for musical theater auditions and highly recommend her.
