“A piano is a piano and a violin is a violin
but a voice is a person.”

- Peter Pears

As singers, we're often taught one set of tools in voice lessons and another in acting classes but left on our own to put the two together.

At Meisner in Music, we teach singers as whole human beings and seek to meld beautiful singing with heartfelt expression without sacrificing one for the other.




Sanford Meisner spent over 60 years developing a technique

that allowed actors to find presence, groundedness, and trust in themselves through a set of simplifying tools.

Meisner-trained actors include:

20 years later, Meisner   Music sought to bridge that gap.



Even with Meisner's great impact, after his passing in 1997, the question remained:

How could we take this freeing technique that emphasizes spoken text and working off of a partner and apply it to sung text that is often performed without a partner?

20 years later, Meisner   Music sought to bridge that gap.





While we initially created Meisner in Music to simply be an acting class for singers, we were amazed to find that

it could help artists with so much more.

Meisner  Music is a toolset that can assist with

"A huge priority for me after the pandemic  was to only be involved in safe spaces. MiM provided me with just that! Working on challenges that were specific to me in a way that felt safe and fun was so needed. I highly recommend bringing your voice, heart, & most authentic self to their space!"

Sami Abu Shumays
Coauthor of Inside Arabic Music

"I credit Meisner in Music for helping me develop presence and the ability (and willingness) to embrace whatever is happening in the moment. I still notice my flaws, of course - but I no longer judge myself for them. After a lifetime of musical training, this is now where I am progressing and learning the most."

Anna Laurenzo

"Meisner in Music is what every singing actor needs! It allows a singer to unlock the truths about their music, frees them from feeling focused on technique, and allows the authentic voice and message to flow through."
