Academies a la Carte!

An Academy a La Carte is a three-weekend offering that allows singers to participate for one, two or all three weekends. We have created this option as a response to singer feedback and we hope this new offering allows singers to fit Bob's Academy workshops into their busy schedules!  Bob will be offering A La Carte! Academies in Amsterdam, Baltimore MD and Brattleboro, Vermont in 2016-17 - Learn more and register!

What the students are saying...

Bob is one of the most amazing teachers I've ever worked with. Concerning scat singing - Bob's the one and only! Through private lessons and a one-week master class in Paris, I've gained so many tools and skills - and most important: interest, inspiration and motivation! Bob teaches with great respect for each of his students and has a great sense of humor! While working with Bob I've always felt that I was improving while having fun and feeling secure.

Thanks to Bob Stoloff for helping me build on my college-level music theory studies and apply it to vocal improvisation.
It's like having a new superpower!

Bob was incredible and probably one of my top 3 teachers of all time, if not number one. He really understands the role of sincere positive reinforcement coupled with clear directives in the learning process. I picked up on this same sentiment from some of the other students that were there for his segment also. As a voice teacher, it is what I strive for with my students as well. Take care and I hope to come back for more!

Just a few words to tell you that it was such a magic encounter for me, both musically and from a human point of view. Short yet fascinating, focused yet "expanded". As I already told you, I'm sure that your approach to students and music is always the same wherever you teach. But I felt so at ease when we were working together as if you perfectly know the best way to "talk" to me and make me pay attention even to small details. More than that, such a "familiar" feeling of tenderness, respect and "nearness"  as if we had already met and known each other for a very long time. Perhaps this is just the magic of music or, and this is what I do think, the Beauty of Life bringing people to meet  more than once! In either case……an extraordinary gift.

Bob Stoloff is not only a source of inspiration for his tremendous talent but also for his loving heart.  

More student comments

Yes, we truly had quite a unique week together with Bob who, I believe, surprised us all, not only with his musicality, but with his humor, kind spirit and generosity.  He is quite a remarkable teacher with keen pedagogical skill yet, more important, he has an intuition for each singer's needs.  We were all enamored by his personal manner of working with us as individuals and a group.  And I must add that Bob was, by far, the best educator I've worked with in the last 30 years.

You have given to me a new light from above!

It has been really exciting to participate in the three day workshop with the amazing Bob Stoloff - my ears grew to double size as scales, rhythms, sight reading, progressions, scat were presented - serious work and so much fun at the same time ... And not least to be with lovely singing colleagues - hooray for new communities and new inspiration!   Clara Vuust
