Thank you for the amazing work that you do for our daughter and her peers. She loves coming to your class and being a part of the group. This session I went to teach my daughter her song and she sang every word perfectly. Because of your class she has a much stronger voice and confidence in all that she does. She loves what you are doing. Thank you so much for such a beautiful gift.  R

Hi Brett, Thank you again for Saturday. The girls  had a blast and we are proud parents. This class is invaluable for building confidence. M

Hi Brett,  She enjoyed all of the activities, and said she felt well prepared to be on stage. This is coming from someone who has serious stage fright! Thank you! M.

We had a fantastic experience this summer. Such a great program!! We were really impressed. Our daughter had a wonderful time. Thank you so much!!  S.

I can't tell you how special this is to us. Last year she suffered from terrible separation anxiety. It's so wonderful to see her confidence already shining bright. Thank you for being such a fabulous teacher! I.

M is working in New York for International Business Times. She gained much skill and confidence from the experience duringher Nightingale Showchoir days : ) So grateful that you selected her for the choir experience. You were the best! Thanks, for everything,  Much appreciation, M.

Thank you so much for a wonderful summer camp experience! My kids are having a blast. They love everything about camp. I know it may be unusual to send the kids for all 4 weeks but they love it. They come home talking about the skits they helped to make up with the other campers, the songs they are learning and the songs they have heard other campers sing. They love their teachers and the counselors in training and feel very loved and supported at camp. T used to be quite shy in front of people but is having a lot of fun on stage. A is learning to focus and face her frustrations when she finds something challenging, which is such an important life lesson. I so appreciate the professionalism that you instill in them- how to hold the microphone, how to behave on stage and the importance of respect for other performers.

What they are learning at your camp is reaching us at home, too. A came home talking about vocal technique- head, chest and belting voice. T explained to me that we are all still growing, even adults. We are enjoying the process. I am learning the words to songs I never knew. Mark and I have been humming "Bare Necessities" and "You've Got A Friend In Me" all week. I don't know who's more excited about Beatles week- my husband and I or them! So, thank you for this wonderful summer of singing! We are so lucky we found YSC. - H.


Dear Brett, I loved all the moments in YSC, from my very first solo class (Wizard of Oz songs) to show choirs. I loved the choreography and the public performances. Holiday songs were always fun, with those big hoop skirts! I loved everything about YSC; I still sing the songs we learned, whether I'm riding my bike around campus or in the shower. I still remember my harmonies, especially the one during "Stand By Me," first performed at SoHo, when I was the only alto I. I loved singing Valentine's. I loved that we were given so many opportunities to perform! I am so glad that I was a part of this program; it helped me so much with my singing and my confidence. Now, I'm studying music in college! I definitely believe that my love of music grew from Young Singers Club. Thank you for everything that you do. S.


Dear Brett,

I just wanted to thank you very much for the kindness and help that you have given me and my family. You never hesitate to help. I love having you as a singing teacher. You are truly amazing. I don't know of anyone else who could do what you do. Your a Great Singer/ Singing Teacher/ Friend! Thank you sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooomuch!




Mrs. Brett,

Just a quick note to thank you so much for all the love and support you haven given L this past YSC session. She is so sad that the session ended!

Your are running an amazing program, Brett. It gives each child a chance to shine. We believe that both our girls have benefited greatly by YSC. They are both confident and secure.

We had so much fun tonight. We look forward to seeing you this summer!



Hi Brett, Yesterday's performance was something beyond my expectations and I was proud of you both for achieving such level in only a couple of sessions. Wow! Thank you so much! M.

Brett, I just wanted to say that my daughter loved her first class with you this afternoon. As I was tucking her into bed tonight, she asked me, "Mama, can I go to my singing class again tomorrow?" Needless to say, she is a fan. Thank you, and see you next week,



Hi Brett,

My daughter had a rough month and hasn't even wanted to go to school at all. I was so happy for her that she was able to perform and be confident. It speaks profoundly about you and your young singers. Thank you so much for such a beautiful recital! I know that you have been instrumental in building her confidence. Her grandparents attended the recital and have never seen her preform and were brought to tears from being so impressed by her courage and performance. You are such an amazing gift for the kids.

Thanks, R.
