“Gail is hands down my favorite voice teacher I have ever studied with! I started working with her in high school, and she helped my voice grow in leaps and bounds, teaching me how to belt healthily and maintain strong vocal consistency. I now live in New York City pursuing a career in musical theatre, but I still go to Gail every time I visit home or need help perfecting a particularly challenging note or song. She has helped me accomplish vocal goals that I didn’t even think were possible for me, and I am extremely grateful for her superb training and continued friendship!” Devon Frieder, actress, singer, dancer, producer, director, MFA Musical Theatre Boston Conservatory
