Lisa Tamagini is a New York City based teaching singer. After earning her Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Performer’s Certificate from the prestigious Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York, Ms. Tamagini went on to have a successful stage career that has spanned over twenty years. She has appeared in leading roles in major opera houses and concert halls including, Houston Grand Opera, New York City Opera, Alice Tully Hall, Carnegie Hall, and The John F.

Beginning her work as a teacher a decade ago, Ms. Tamagini found it most rewarding to lay the foundation for a solid technique in singers that were qualified to train prior to conservatory studies. Her method integrates a sound, scientifically based vocal technique and text training, which acknowledges the individual learning styles and vocal temperament of each young artist. Ms. Tamagini students have gone on to pursue musical studies in such institutions as The Juilliard School, Eastman School of Music, Manhattan School of Music, Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, Mannes College of Music, NYU Steinhardt and Tisch, Wagner College, Syracuse University, Ithaca College, Boston University, Harvard University, Carnegie Mellon University, and Berklee College of Music to name a few, as well as trained singers who went on to American Idol and The Voice. Ms. Tamagini has served on the voice faculty of Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts and is proud to be part of the founding voice faculty of The Special Music School High School in New York City, which is a collaboration between the Elaine Kaufman Cultural Center and the New York City Department of Education.
