Liz is a brilliant, patient, inspiring teacher. Not only do I want to sing like Liz, I want to BE like Liz…I’m so happy every time I go meet a guest before the show and I learn that they are one of the Fellowship of the Sing when they say the magic word “Caplan!” We bond. I miss the internal spiritual massage that your work provides.”
– Stephen Colbert, Host of “The Late Show” on CBS

– Mike Myers, actor known for Wayne’s World, the Austin Powers series, Shrek
I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Liz for some time now. While I have always marveled at her knowledge of music and technique, it is her unique understanding of what each individual performer needs that impresses me most. She continues to reach singers of all types with her methods, and her ability to improve overall performance while protecting the instrument is astounding.”
– Tom Kitt, Tony-Award and Pulitzer prize winning composer of Next to Normal; composer of Bring It On; 2013 Tony Awards; composer of If/Then. Orchestrator for Upcoming SpongeBob Musical
I love Liz Caplan because she is so passionate about what she does. I feel that a truly great teacher knows how to empower their students and cater to their specific needs, reaching into a large ‘bag of tricks’ that will help a variety of people with whatever blocks they have in front of them. Liz is exactly that Great Teacher. She is a wonderful spirit, extremely nurturing and full of love, and she makes all her students feel instantly comfortable with themselves and with their instrument. Every time I refer a singer to her, they walk away from their first lesson feeling like Liz got them to sing better than they ever had before. She is the top!”
– Alex Lacamoire, Tony Award-winning Music Director and Orchestrator of DEAR EVAN HANSEN. Multiple Tony and Grammy Winner for Broadway’s HAMILTON and IN THE HEIGHTS
Liz Caplan’s skill with singers as well as actors is unparalleled. What makes me a huge fan and devoted supporter is how she integrates the voice with the full body. She teaches full-body singing in order to wholly realize the vocal potential of her students. She also greatly respects a singer’s individuality and vocal personality, not attempting to create a certain sound, but unleashing the best sound each specific person can create.”
– Michael Arden, FX’s “Anger Management”, THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN’, BARE: A POP OPERA, BIG RIVER. Director of Broadway’s SPRING AWAKENING and the upcoming ONCE ON THIS ISLAND revival.
Liz saved my voice. I was running into problems that I didn’t know how to fix. Liz went right to work and she helped my find my voice again… I was grateful to be able to thank her from the stage of the Beacon Theater when I accepted a Tony Award this year. I could NOT have done it without her. Today, I’m singing with more confidence than I ever have, and more importantly, because of the technique Liz has ‘gifted’ me,I can trust that it will always be there.”
– Nikki M. James, Tony Award winner for Best Leading Actress in BOOK OF MORMON

Liz, it was an honor to watch your magic spread across our cast – your contribution to the success of the production cannot be overstated. Soon again, I hope!!!”

– Bill Condon, Director of Disney’s Live action film of “Beauty and the Beast”, “Twilight Saga–Breaking Dawn parts I and II”, director of Broadway’s SIDESHOW

I have no hesitation to send along people I care about to you. Easy every time. You’ve always provided the safest place for folks I respect and adore to flourish. More to come!”

– Tommy Kail, Tony Award Winning Director of Broadway’s HAMILTON

Ohhhh My My LIZ!!!!! Thank You for giving me the confidence & tools for relaxation of the body & the voice. YOU Are The Bomb no doubt & WE ALL Benefited from your wisdom & spirit on ITH !!! Again Gracias. YOU helped me check off a career long bucket list Box.”

-Jimmy Smits

ABOUT LIZ

LIZ CAPLAN has been teaching and coaching voice since 1978 in New York City and lectures around the world.

Her students are currently featured in principle roles on Broadway, as artists in the recording industry, as well as actors on Film and TV. Many have also won the prestigious Tony, Grammy and Emmy awards. Besides working vocally with recording artists, Liz also does consulting work for all the major record labels.

Additionally, Liz has the honor of working with many Tony and Grammy Award winning musical directors and arrangers. She consults on many projects long before they are fully realized, and as a result, she is able to get a sense of the upcoming trends in both musical theater and the music industry. Her students, therefore, benefit from a teacher who has an awareness of these new productions and their various musical styles.

Liz and her associates also teach specialized master classes and workshops, which provide a supportive group dynamic for singers, dancers and actors to further develop their craft. The workshops provide the performer with physical and vocal warm-ups for auditions, studio sessions and performances, relaxation techniques for nervousness, emotional connection to the song, improved body language, as well as focus and connection to the breath.

Liz draws upon many diverse disciplines in her approach to teaching voice. Her innovative use of physical alignment, exercise, and nutrition help to build and maintain a healthy instrument. Yoga, breathing, and relaxation techniques, along with Alexander and Linklater philosophies, are also explored regularly. Vocal exercises, tailored to the individual student, aim to strengthen the larynx and vocal cords, and release the tongue and jaw in order to increase range and flexibility.

Liz’s affiliations include: The American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA), The Drama League, and The National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS), where she has been a speaker, panelist and workshop facilitator. She is also on the faculty of the Voice Foundation in Philadelphia, PA and was recently named a member of the New York Singing Teachers’ Association (NYSTA), as well as a member of the Voice and Speech Therapists Association (VASTA).
