“My son has been taking voice lessons with Lacey for over a year. She has helped him prepare to be successful in NYSSMA, SCMEA and musical theater auditions. Evan loves working with her. She has such a positive and encouraging manner about her. Evan was really feeling discouraged because his voice was changing and it was really making him feel self-conscious to perform. Lacey has helped him successfully maneuver this challenge. Can’t thank her enough!”- Kathleen
