About Debbie Carter/ Voice Teacher

How does your service stand out?

I have 19 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.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

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 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.

    I'm trying to find the right words to describe how great of a teacher she is but I don't think I'd do her any justice. Her knowledge, professionalism, and passion for teaching voice... it just oozes out of her. Whatever you're there for, I know Debbie will get you there.

    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.

    Debbie Carter is an amazing vocal teacher. She has a great attitude and is very patient. She made me feel welcomed and comfortable the minute I walked into the room. She has given me advice on how to use and care for my voice and has made me feel more comfortable with singing high notes (those can be scary!). She is very punctual and starts and ends classes on time. I have had a very positive experience with her and hope to continue with classes. Thank you, Debbie for your time, teachings, and wisdom!

Question and answer

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

A. I am the Director of Music for my church and can teach you how to read music. 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 also record your lesson on a micro SD card for you to upload into your computer or on your phone voice recorder so you can practice at home. I am a member of the Paul Delgado us on Facebook!

Q. Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.

A. I teach 1/2 hour and hour long lessons. It's not complicated at all. $25 per half and $50 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

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. I've been singing since I represented my home state of Montana in the Miss America Pageant and won a talent award scholarship. I love teaching voice, especially the look on my student's faces when they find a powereful voice they never knew they had. I can help!

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. I will help you with vocal technique; Breathing, High notes, the Break, Resonance, Power and Nuance. I work with all musical styles and most important is that your lesson is recorded so you can practice the exercises at home!

Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

A. Check out the video I posted...that's my new student Paulina singing her very first solo at our recital on March 2, 2013. She is singing a song from The Little Mermaid where the tempo of the song 'Part of Your World' fluctuates and she forgets the lyrics from time to time as she doesn't read yet! You will see me feeding her the words and trying to hold her from going too fast and getting ahead of the cute!! She was so proud along with mom, dad and Grandma and Grandpa.

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. I am living proof that this 'Speech Level Technique' really works! Still singing strong after 30 years!
