Our Favorite Teachers

NYCC's favorite local voice teachers and other music educators offer discounts to NYCC members, and we'll subsidize your first lesson(s) with them.

Even if you're not a member of NYCC, we highly recommend you check these folks out—when referred by NYCC, you can enjoy the NYCC member price on your first lesson!

Caitlin Caruso Dobbs

Since 2017, Caitlin (mezzo-soprano) has been involved with NYCC as a member, soloist, and more. (Fun fact: she has a hat trick with NYCC, having sung soprano, alto, and tenor with the group.) She offers voice lessons, vocal coaching, and beginning piano lessons.


Currently she sings with the early music vocal ensemble Musica Vera, and is the soloist at Church of St. Edward the Martyr in East Harlem. She received a B.M. from NYU Steinhardt in Vocal Performance with a concentration in Musical Theater and a minor in Educational Theater. Some favorite NYC performances include: Elizabeth Gurley Flynn (The Joe Hill Revival), Aldonza (Man of La Mancha), Charlotte (Little Fish), Carrie Pipperidge (Carousel), Tosca with Loft Opera, Premiere of the Mealor Requiem with NYCC @ Carnegie Hall and several cabarets at Don't Tell Mama.
