"When I started EGS 4 years ago, I never thought the studio would turn into my home. Any time I get to be at the studio I am truly in my happy place. Elisa and paige have been guiding me through not only music, but life. I wouldn’t be where I am musically or personally without them. I have grown so much over the past years over lessons, musical theatre classes with Paige, recording sessions, performances, competitions, and so much more. I have connected with many people and have created a family at the studio. I look up to so many amazing teachers here, especially Elisa. She has taught me what it truly means be a musician, and continues to everyday. She is my biggest fan and my biggest inspiration. I have improved so much throughout the years and I am beyond grateful to the studio for giving me that."

"Elisa Girlando Studios has been a true blessing to our family. Over the course of the last year, my son has found a deep love for many areas of music. He has been able to attend in-person lessons (although virtual is available too) in a clean and beautiful studio. His teacher Eric has helped him develop his skills both vocally as well as on the piano. I love listening to the chords and music coming from his bedroom throughout the days. Paige, the studio manager, keeps us abreast of all the information we need. Elisa has created a place where people can grow. Her excitement and enthusiasm can be felt throughout. The entire team is dedicated to student development in all areas. Thank you Elisa Girlando Studios for providing my son a wonderful experience and lifetime of love for music.”
Best Vocal Lessons in North Jersey. Period.

I have a very dear place in my heart for Elisa and the gift that she has given me. I was Elisa's very first student over 15 years ago (still can't believe it) and now I am a recording artist in Los Angeles getting paid for my talents as a Female vocalist. Elisa prepped me 10 years ago for the 13 jazz vocal auditions and because of her, I was accepted to every single one. This would NOT have been a possible without her and I'm so honored to have been the start of her long and prosperous career in teaching lessons.

Elisa teaches the basics of music theory, ear training, and improvisation. I was a light piano player, but she also took a major role in coaching me to accompany myself and now, it's my whole act. I'm a singer-songwriter who plays the piano, haha. She is a master of stage presence and connecting with an audience, which really has proven to aid in making her students "the complete package".

I remember beginning lessons with her as a 13 yr old and having Elisa believe in me and making the task of singing in public "no big thing". She lifted me up and built my confidence, while unapologetically fine-tuning my voice and allowing me to find my individuality as an artist. She was very supportive of having me bring in songs that I loved while also teaching me the classics, which I now appreciate more than anything. She comes from an incredibly talented and musical family and music runs through her.

If not for music as a career, music is an incredibly useful tool for building children's confidence and even for therapeutic purposes. I can not recommend Elisa more. I completely owe my present accomplishments to her.
