Elaine Romanelli is an award-winning performer, composer, and teacher across genres. She is a FAI and NARAS member, a SESAC affiliate, and proud member of Maestra.

Elaine also works as a professional church, temple, and choral singer, and classical soloist.
Elaine teaches students to sing with joy, freedom, and technical prowess. She primarily works with musical theater professionals, to build stronger technical foundations for singing across genres, as is required by today's audition landscape.
