STUDENT RECOMMENDATIONS


"I fly to New York to specifically work with Rosa Vento as often as possible. Having studied with many teachers over the past 30 years, Rosa is by far the most effective teacher, coach, and technician that I have had the privilege to work with. One hour with Ms. Vento offers me deeper insights into my repertoire and techniques to improve my skill levels. I bring my vocal challenges to her and leave with the techniques and skills to overcome them both in the classical and cabaret repertoire.

My improvement over the past two years under Ms. Vento's watchful eye continues to be noted and complimented by nationally recognized conductors and coaches that I have the honor to work with. My bookings are up, my confidence is high and my love of performance grows daily.

Rosa Vento approaches teaching with a respectful, caring and encouraging atmosphere, building trust, while pushing her students in a subtle way to reach deeper, work harder, and grow faster both as an artist and as a person. She is an artist herself! I am honored to work with her and to know her."

"I heartily recommend Rosa without reservation. She helped me come back from vocal distress and has guided me through a major change in repertoire. Rosa is a caring, compassionate, flexible and highly knowledgeable teacher who holds no pre-conceived notions about each voice, but rather lets the healthy voice also be a guide. She understands well the function of the voice and breath and is able to communicate this through tailoring her language to my particular needs. Rosa has equipped me with the tools I need to effectively work on my own, between lessons and on the road. My voice has improved in clarity, intonation and flexibility due to the work I have done with Rosa."

"During the past four years I have had the privilege of studying with Rosa Vento. Rosa is a wonderful, caring teacher who inspires me everyday. Rosa is a very talented teacher who truly understands the inner workings of the voice and therefore she is able to explain vocal technique in a manner that meets the students learning style and needs. My constant progress is evidence of her sound vocal technique and vast repertoire knowledge. I have learned so much from Rosa and it has been an honor to work with her week after week. Under Rosa’s direction, I have grown not only as a performer, but as an individual as well. Without Rosa’s help, guidance and encouragement I do not know where I would be today."

"Rosa Vento is an extraordinary teacher. In my years of study with her, she has helped me take my voice to a completely new level, teaching me to sing with ease and agility. She is consistently working to introduce new concepts as well as building upon what we’ve already learned, maximizing my strengths and giving me the confidence I need to discover new areas of my voice. Her emphasis on a healthy vocal production is an invaluable addition to our lessons. Rosa is encouraging, supportive, and honest which I find to be among her greatest assets as a teacher."
