Brittney Redler has had the pleasure of teaching vocal and general music from kindergarten to graduate school and adulthood. She holds a Ph.D. from New York University in Vocal Performance, with a research focus in vocal pedagogy, teaching efficacy, and voice science. She also earned a Master of Music Degree from NYU in Vocal Performance, a Bachelor of Music Degree from Ithaca College in Music Education and Vocal Performance, and completed the Summer Vocology Institute at the National Center for Voice and Speech. She has spent ten years as a choral conductor, classroom music teacher, and music director in Brooklyn, Connecticut, and South Carolina; as well as three years working with an after-school choir program of students grades 4-12 in the Bronx. She also served as adjunct voice faculty at NYU Steinhardt, teaching voice majors as well as a graduate pedagogy course on interdisciplinary voice care with the NYU Medical School. As a soprano, her performance history spans operatic, concert, musical theater, and contemporary commercial styles. Over the past fifteen years, however, her relationship with the performance world has centered on collaborating on the development and premiering of new works in musical theatre and opera, especially those pieces that push and blend boundaries of style. Her private voice studio includes opera professionals, performers on and off-Broadway, singer-songwriters, developing voices, amateur adults, and singers in recovery from injuries and surgery. She has presented on functional voice science for music educators, mindfulness in the choral classroom, strategies for working with pitch inaccuracy and “tone deafness,” composing mindfully for the voice, and coping with anxiety as a musician. She enjoys running, hiking, gardening, yoga, baking, and generally hanging with her family.
