Soprano Rebekah Eden singing her composition "My Beloved".
April 13, 2018

Dear Atarah,
It has been such an absolute delight to meet you and to begin down the road of studying singing with you. I am so happy and excited to be working with someone who worked so closely with Carl Stough, as I find his work with breathing so compelling, so powerful. I am also glad that I could bring you a way to access a copy of his book online. It is a book well worth reading.

From when I first spoke with you on the phone, I could hear in your voice something very special. Your speaking voice has a fullness and roundness that also is comforting. Since having just 3 lessons, I can feel changes in my own voice. And it is giving me such joy not only my discovery of singing (as I am not a singer, but someone interested in learning to sing) but also I am enjoying talking.

I feel a strength and connection in my voice that is new and empowering. I am excited to see where it will go. It's amazing how my voice has changed in such a short amount of time.
Remarkable, Enjoyable, Beautiful!!

Thank you!!

Rebekah Eden, soprano and composer, is a classical crossover artist with one foot in the world of classical music, and the other firmly planted in her own mystical compositions of Celtic Fantasy.

She credits her voice teacher and mentor, Atarah Hazzan, with helping her to achieve an artistry, technique and freedom of self-expression through singing she had only dreamed of before. Her work with Miss Hazzan has led to commercial success as well as to profound personal fulfillment.

Rebekah has released her own recordings to great acclaim; selections from her debut album, The Path of Gold, can be heard on the soundtrack to the film "The Conductor". Her most recent solo album, Rowing in Eden went to the top 10 of the radio airplay charts in 2016, and was nominated for best vocal album of 2016 alongside the famed Irish singer Enya. We Have Only Come To Dream, a
collaboration with composer Terry Lee Nichols, was inspired by the migration of peoples to the Americas and was released in March 2018 to stellar reviews.

Tenor Adam Harris sings an excerpt "Un aura amorosa" (Mozart)
Tenor Adam Harris has performed in numerous venues across the country such as Santa Fe Opera, Chautauqua Opera, San Francisco Lyric Opera, Caramoor Festival, Phoenix Sympthony, l'Opera Francais Du New York to name a few. Adam is a graduate of the Julliard School, and holds a Master's degree from the Eastman School of Music.

I'm so glad to have found Atarah Hazzan as my voice teacher. Over the relatively short period I've worked with Atarah, she partners with me on the singing journey and continually leads me to ever greater versions of my voice. Drawing on her experience as a leading soprano at the Metropolitan Opera and other leading opera houses of the world, as well as her intuition and deft insight into the vocal mechanism, she has a way of getting inside my singing technique and guiding me to overcome obstacles. The breakthroughs are real and amazing!
