Her students have landed numerous professional musical theater readings and leading roles on Broadway and Off-Broadway including MJ the Musical; The Radio City Spring Spectacular, Amelie, Dr. Zhivago, Anastasia, The Lion King, and Tom Kitt’s Superhero. Virginia studied with Broadway leading lady Judith Blazer, Fitzmaurice Voicework® master Joey Bates, and opera expert Kelley Hijleh.

Memorable moments with my students:
"[Virginia Pike] is an incredibly gifted voice teacher. Her subtle, yet persistent encouragement, sensitivity to our daughter’s vocal sensations throughout each lesson, and deep confidence in her talents have led her vocal abilities to blossom. We could not be more grateful to have Ginny as our daughter’s voice teacher."

A passionate and skilled musician, she creates an environment which is safe and trusting so her students feel the confidence to take risks and excel. She brings her passion for music to her teaching and inspires her students to trust their instincts and commit to their natural talents."
