Hello! Sophie MacKay here! I was born and raised in Portland, OR where I have been a professional actor and musician since I was 11- years old, but I have recently moved to NYC to follow my dreams!
I founded my studio in 2020 to support and cultivate your child’s creative energy through the arts of music and performance.
When I am not teaching lessons or performing, I am a preschool teacher in Brooklyn!
What I Offer...
Do you have a musical child who is interested in learning more technique with either voice or violin? Are they a budding actor who needs some guidance with audition material? Do they just want to play, explore, and have fun learning some songs? Whatever the case is, my studio is the perfect fit for children and teens, ages 6-18, beginner or intermediate levels. Remember that the performing arts should be practiced because we love it. I will help to cultivate and nurture this in your child.
As we all figure out how to restructure our lives during these trying times of physical distancing and stay-at-home orders, the arts are more important than ever. It is with the magic and power of the arts, especially performance arts that will help us to get through this, together.
Take a little time for yourself while your child is safe, happy, and engaged in something they enjoy!
With me, they will discover their talent, strengthen their skills, and most importantly, have fun!

"I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Sophie MacKay for three years as her College voice teacher. She is talented, competent, creative and a joy to work with. I feel so confident in Sophie’s musical and teaching abilities that I hired her to be a co-counselor with me in a summer music theatre camp last year. All of the campers loved working with Sophie because she encouraged them to try new things and work harder in one week than they ever had before. Sophie struck the perfect balance between running an efficient rehearsal session and having fun! The final showcase was so successful thanks to Sophie’s skill, hard work and total professionalism. I give Sophie my highest recommendation possible."
