About Barbara Nyce, Music Instructor

I teach voice lessons, beginning to intermediate piano lessons, and beginning recorder lessons.

My style is holistic. I consider the whole person, their needs, and the elements of instruction in each lesson. I am easy to talk to and I go to great lengths to make my students feel comfortable.

I teach bel canto style singing. This is a healthy vocal technique that serves performers singing any style of music.

I have had many voice students go on to study voice, music education, and musical theatre at leading universities.

For piano and recorder students, I consider the student's needs and style of learning in order to choose the best instructional method for each particular student.

I have a Bachelor of Music in Music Education and a Master of Music in Vocal Performance. I have been teaching for over 25 years. I am a professional singer. My repertoire covers traditional classical vocal and choral music through Celtic music.

    Barbara has given my daughter voice lessons for five years. She has helped immeasurably with her technique: specifically vocal range, the strength of her voice, and her confidence in reading music. She has also been consistently patient and supportive. I highly recommend Barbara as an instructor.

    Barbara is not only an amazing teacher but a kind and gentle spirit. My daughter started with voice lessons and now also plays piano. I watch my daughters ability grow with Barbara. She is a teacher, mentor and true supporter of Sabrina. She is dependable, flexible and knowledgeable. Sabrina always looks forward to her lessons and that says a lot when talking about teenagers. We are lucky to have her!

    I have been studying with Barbara for about 6 months and I truly enjoy our lesson time. She was helped me improve my breath support, my tone, and to extend my vocal range. She is a very competent vocal coach and a very lovely person. I recommend her highly to any one who wishes to study voice.
