Jeff Kay joined the Singing Mastery team early 2019 and is a certified Singing Mastery instructor offering private voice and guitar lessons in Astoria, Queens.
Jeff Kay received a BFA in jazz and contemporary music performance from The New School University where he studied with Kevin Burke, Amy London, Janet Lawson, Jay Clayton, Junior Mance, and Billie Harper to name a few.
Since graduating from NSU, Jeff has been teaching voice and working on several music projects. One project of note is the band “The Gantry” which Jeff created and performed with here in NYC at such venues as: Arlene’s Grocery, Pianos, Rockwood, Mercury Lounge, and The Bowery Ballroom. In addition to local NYC performances, Jeff took “The Gantry” on 2 tours which included performances at Campfire Fest, SXSW, CBGB Fest, and Music Fest.
Jeff is currently balancing his time teaching voice and guitar with rehearsing new music projects, as well as spending time with his wife Heliany and daughter Emilia.
As an instructor, Jeff is the perfect blend of laid-back and inspiring, and is a master at making his students feel comfortable and safe to explore all aspects of their vocal sounds. In addition to teaching voice, Jeff also teaches guitar for singers, which focuses on giving singers the skills they need to accompany themselves while singing and songwriting.
Jeff is excited to get you started on your vocal studies.
