"I have been
delighted with Mr. Gerard's work at Gurari Studios. As a voice
teacher I have been impressed with his ability to obtain a true
and authentic sounding result, and his musical knowledge and
keen insight into the voice are distinct advantages. This
facilitates not only an understanding of how to capture the
individual at their recorded best, but an efficient use of
editing time as well. I highly recommend Gurari Studios."

"Several of my pupils have gone to Gurari Studios to have
recordings made and in each case I have found the final product
to be of the highest quality. It isn't easy to record operatic
voices, especially those who sing heavier repertoire, and I feel
that Jeremy Gerard has the technical expertise and the musical
sensitivity to capture the true quality of those who sing

"I have had the privilege to work with Jeremy on several
occasions at his studio conveniently located in midtown
Manhattan. The equipment, room, and piano are excellent. As a
singer with a large voice, I find the space works beautifully
for me, and as a singer himself, Jeremy brings to the recording
sessions a special and added expertise you will not find
elsewhere in NYC. He makes the entire process easy and stress
free and was very quick to not only work me into his busy
schedule, but also to get additional copies off to me around the
world. I happily and honestly recommend him to my colleagues and
will absolutely use his fine services in the future. Thank you
Jeremy for being the difference in NYC."

"Jeremy Gerard and Gurari
Studios has renewed my belief in competent recording engineers
after having had several bad and costly experiences. Jeremy is
extremely knowledgeable in the recording industry and as a
singer as well. The studio and piano are wonderful and the room
is very easy to sing in, even with a bigger voice. His recording
produced a true-to-life sound, perfectly matching the real voice
with no artificial covering or film. His easy going personality
made a stressful experience a pleasure. Jeremy went out of his
way to make sure that I was satisfied with the final product and
the recording far exceeded my expectations. I would highly

definitely be using his services again."

recordings with Jeremy over the last ten years, and I recommend
him whenever anyone asks for advice about where to record in New
