Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I have 20 years teaching experience as a voice teacher but I am also a working vocalist. I sing for many occasions, weddings and funerals, solos in church where I am the Director of Music, with my professional Chamber Choir 'The Paul Delgado Singers'. I can sing the technique that I am teaching you which is invaluable to a voice student. I am a pro at explaining in words what I want your voice to do, where I want your voice to go. My new students come in with shyness and nervousness, but I like to tell them congratulations for putting themselves out there to try something new. Voice lessons are very personal and I like making my students feel welcome and to help them relax with a bit of humor and humanity. I love it when I see the light bulb of that 'got it!' moment in their eyes. Music is Magic I always say, and I have had many memorable moments over the years where my students have surpassed their own expectations in their performances!

I've been taking lessons with Debbie for less than two months and I can already see results. She teaches in an understandable way. I can assure that the practices at home with the recordings in class are of great help. I stopped singing at the age of 10 and haven't properly sang until right now (age of 18.) I can already see results in just a short period of time. She is patient and makes it comfortable to sing. I am auditioning for the X Factor soon and I feel very confident on improving and getting through the judge's audition and bootcamp. I would really recommend her if you're considering on taking singing classes.

I am looking forward to my third lesson with Debbie. Except for singing in the shower and in my car, I have never sung to any extent, and hardly ever in front of someone. Thanks to Debbie, I am already gaining confidence in my abilities. She is a very patient and effective teacher. I highly recommend her.

Debbie is an absolutely delightful woman. She has a beautiful voice and it is obvious she has many years of experience. I love how positive she is with my daughter. She is gentle and reassuring. This is exactly what my daughter needs so that feels confident in her voice and presence. We plan to continue lessons. I am so happy to have found her!

I have been taking lessons with Debbie for two months now and I don't think I will be stopping anytime soon. My voice has really been improving since I started because she is such a great teacher and not to mention so sweet! The price is reasonable and she helps me in developing own voice, not try to make me sound like somebody different which Is really important to me too. I Would highly recommend her as a vocal coach.

First lesson was great! Debbie is extremely encouraging and knowledgable. You can definitely tell that she is experienced, and that she knows exactly what she is teaching. Even though I only had one lesson, I already learned so much, and immediately felt a difference in my voice. I look forward to continuing lessons with her.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I teach 1/2 hour and hour long lessons. It's not complicated at all. $30per half and $60 per hour. I will see you every week, you pay me at the beginning of each month. If I miss your lesson then I owe you one, if you miss without a 24 hr. notice then I charge you. Easy

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We will start at the beginning with breathing and placement. I give my new students exercises to improve strength and pitch right away and then add vocal concepts such as high notes, power, nuance, diction and working around the break as we move forward. We work on music that is challenging but something that students love.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am the Director of Music for my church for the last 14 years and can teach you how to read music. I am soloing in church almost every week and rather than tell you how to sing these concepts I can show you! We can work with harmony and since I have experience in bands and in the recording studio I can offer you sound performance advice. I am a 4 year member of the Paul Delgado Singers...like us on Facebook!
