WHO AM I?

Ariel Zaichick

Hello, thank you for visiting my website! I am originally from Mississauga, where I graduated from the RAP program in Voice at Cawthra Park Secondary School.  I have over 16 years in classical voice training and I currently teach privately at my home studio, Music By Ariel.


After graduating from Queen’s University with a B.Mus in Voice in 2019, I  made Kingston my home, teaching classes, conducting choirs and vocal directing singers of all ages.


I have taught with Sistema Kingston, Bottle Tree Productions, Music Together and The Mulberry Waldorf School.

I also have a passion for choral music and sing with the Melos Choir. While at Queen's. I directed the Queen's Chorus for 2 years and directed my very own Opera Cabaret with Bottle Tree Productions. 

In the past year, in order to continue sharing performances during the pandemic, I have been creating and editing videos to feature my students, both at Music By Ariel and Sistema Kingston


Splitting my time between teaching and performing, some of my stage highlights include  Olympia in “Les contes d’Hoffman” (Midwest Institute of Opera), Maria in “West Side Story in Concert” (Queen’s University Orchestra) as well as intensives such as The Russian Opera Workshop (Philadelphia), Druid City Opera Workshop (Alabama) and the Acting Opera Intensive (NYC).

I am currently accepting new students for my brand new home studio on Montreal Street. All lessons are currently taking place over Zoom, but once Covid-19 restrictions lift, I will be welcoming students for in-person lessons.
