Profession headshot of Emily RomneyEmily Romney is a professional singer with over thirty years successful experience as a studio voice teacher of professional and amateur adult singers. Ms. Romney has a background in choral conducting and choral singing, and extensive professional experience as a soloist and vocal chamber music performer. While on the faculty of the Longy School of Music of Bard College, she taught studio voice and developed an undergraduate and master’s degree curriculum for conservatory students, put together a music program for high school singers, initiated and created the conservatory level vocal pedagogy course "The Living Instrument and How It Works", and coordinated a vocal chamber music program.

She currently maintains a private voice studio in Cambridge, MA. and is on the faculty of the Powers Music School in Belmont, MA.

“The voice studio should be a comfortable place where enthusiasm and ongoing good work can mix with risk-taking, humor, and musical exploration.  I encourage my students to develop a musical life beyond the studio and to pursue performance opportunities.”
