"We’ve converted to completely virtual voice lessons and Nyla is just as effective virtually as she is in person. My daughter’s range, control, and technique have all improved significantly since using this comprehensive program. She landed a lead role in a theater production and I credit Nyla for preparing her thoroughly for the audition. I highly recommend Nyla for anyone that wants truly professional lessons. She is highly knowledgeable and so organized!"
Katie Greene, Parent
"I’m so thankful I found Nyla! She has considerable knowledge in vocal mechanics, styles, and techniques, and an amazing ear for identifying specific vocal challenges and how best to address them. Her experience speaks to the technical and very practical side of performing. She's helped me immensely with finding vocal freedom and provided a dynamic training regimen tailored to my specific needs. She does all of this in such a kind and encouraging way while being respectful of the voice as an artistic instrument. I highly recommend her!!"
Erin Tooley, Praise and Worship Vocalist
“I came to record in Wilmington and I was referred to Wilmington Voice Coach to help prepare me so my recording session would go efficiently and well. Even in a short amount of time, Nyla was able to assess my voice using methodologies and then translate those findings into voice strengthening activities that I could immediately implement. Her studio is a beautiful, calming environment. Best of all, her warm, easy-going personality and kindness put me at ease. Nyla is clearly passionate about her work and takes it seriously -- this translates to highly personalized care for her students It was a privilege to work with her for this project."
Jodie Madison, Vocalist/Actress
"I have seen my daughter Madison grow so much just in the short time she has been working with Nyla. She has helped her tremendously with her confidence. I see a different child and can hear how much she has improved. I admire anyone that is able to teach a person and have the ability to bring out the best in that person in such a positive growing experience and watch them have so much fun doing it, as in Madisons' experience. Nyla has a special gift."
Stephanie Spratley, Parent
“I learned a lot from working with Nyla. I have been singing all of my life but had just recently broken into songwriting and local performing when I contacted her. She gave me a lot of great advice on how to train my voice and access my best sound. I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know about my own voice until I started working with Nyla. Every exercise has a purpose and it doesn’t take long to hear a difference in quality. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to improve their voice, no matter their experience or genre.”
Cara Schauble, Local Musician-Songwriter
“Nyla took a very professional approach with testing me where I was, and then working very specifically to achieve my personal goals through supportive breath and vocal techniques, helping to improve delivery, power, vocal range, and giving me customized follow up exercises to take home."
Jason Andre, Lead Singer for The Midatlantic
"Three years ago, I had my thyroid removed which resulted in an impairment in my ability to sing. After a year of healing, I began vocal training with Nyla in hopes of regaining some of what I had lost. Nyla has helped me strengthen my voice and increase my range beyond what it was prior to my surgery. She continues to encourage me to reach beyond my comfort zone, helping me build back my confidence as a vocalist. Thank you Nyla for giving me my voice back!"
Dianne Marchese, Vocalist/Actress
“The awakening of my possibilities vocally have come from the best vocal trainer, hands down. Nyla takes the time and has exuded confidence into me, helping me reach levels that I thought weren't possible vocally. I am forever grateful for my time spent at Wilmington Voice Coach.”
Gene Gregory, Singer-Songwriter
“Nyla is a real deal professional and has connected with me like no one else has making positive progress in improving my vocals in ways I never knew I could. She opened both my mind and voice. She has helped me realize possibilities and reach them.”
Tom Pirkey, Singer-Songwriter
"My experience with Nyla is absolutely wonderful. She is extremely knowledgeable and shared a wealth of her knowledge with me, even in my first session. She will give you the tools you need to fine tune your voice and help you work on areas that need improvement. She also helps you to set goals, which is very important. In addition to all of this, she is also very kind, compassionate, encouraging and patient. She makes each session a lot of fun. Your voice is an instrument, and in order to be the best you can be, you need to exercise it! I enjoy my time with Nyla and I trust her ability to teach in the best way possible, I'm confident you will, too!"
Marianne Voska, Praise/Worship VocalIst
“My son had an interest in musical theater and auditioning for local productions. I came across Nyla and how fortunate we feel to have found her! Garrett’s singing has improved remarkably since he has been training with her. His range has expanded without straining and his projection is amplified. He also has a confidence about him while singing that I have not seen before. I’m just thrilled! I am also impressed with the education on voice anatomy, sound and breathing that Garrett is being exposed to. I know that this experience will serve him well throughout life no matter what direction his interests take him."
Sara Reider, Parent
"I love training my voice with Nyla because she teaches me how to project, breathe right and so many other things in an easy way. She is super nice and is always encouraging me to do better and better. I try to use what she teaches me each day when I practice and I know it will help me in auditions. I get excited to see her each week because I really like being around her. She’s got great energy!" Garrett Reider, Singer-Actor
"I loved my voice lessons with Nyla! My main goals were to learn how to strengthen my voice and to sound less nasal. She taught me breathing and vocal techniques that really helped my voice to feel stronger and more connected. I would highly recommend Nyla as a voice coach!"
Susan Barnes, Praise/Worship Vocalist
“As someone who has always been shy singing in front of people, my confidence has improved so much since working with Nyla. I feel so lucky to be her student! In just a few months my range has gotten noticeably better and the exercises she has taught me really stick and make a huge difference. I would recommend her to anyone who is serious about getting results.”
Erica Giffen, Character Actress/Vocalist
“After a few years of formal and informal vocal training, I found my way to Nyla. Always professional and deeply intuitive, she’s helped me develop strength and an increased vocal range and nuance that I don’t feel I had before. She teaches tools that lay down a solid foundation, and tailors specific vocal “workouts” to help you achieve success, whatever your vocal goals. She loves what she does and her passion for music is infectious.”
LeeAnna Phiffer, Vocalist
“Nyla has done incredible work with our young daughter. Whether it’s helping her prepare for a musical or a concert with her band, Nyla helps bring out the best in our daughter and is giving her tools to be a successful singer and a more confident performer.”
Casey Berna, Parent
“My daughter began taking voice lessons from Nyla this fall. Nyla's knowledge and understanding of voice, music, and the key elements of singing are extensive. She is passionate about what she does and it is expressed in every lesson. My daughter landed a great part in her school musical. Her encouragement and hard work with Nyla paid off. You could see it from the confidence she had on stage when she sang her solo. Thanks Nyla for all you do!”
Michelle Turner, Parent
“Describe my experience? There's not enough room on here but for starters, it's only been a month and I have learned more in that timeframe than I would have ever expected and opened so many new doors while being coached through the process. Needless to say, I've already signed up for my next sessions. Nyla is truly a great person to know but a fantastic professional as well. I would highly recommend Wilmington Voice Coach.”
