Visalia Voice Studio
About this pro
I offer classical and Broadway voice lessons for all level voice instruction. I also offer beginner's piano lessons. I have been performing in musicals and choirs for 24 years. I hold a Bachelor's of Music in vocal performance. I have been employed as a music teacher both in the classroom and private settings for 5 years each. I have directed children's choirs and musical theatre productions. I am staying current by continuing my studies with internationally-acclaimed opera star, Edna Garabedian. I continue to perform on a regular basis. Voice lessons can focus on musical theatre and/or classical repetoire depending on student goals. Vocal technique includes breath support, vocal freedom, solid tone and resonance. Musical theatre also includes acting while singing and audition preparation. Classical voice lessons may include repetoire in English, Italian, French, or German. Youth lessons (high school and younger) are $17 per 1/2 hour lesson. Adult lessons are $30 per 45-minute lesson. High school students wishing for more advanced training may opt for adult lessons. Payment for initial lesson is due prior to first lesson. All other lessons will be paid based on a monthly payment schedule. My current availability is weekdays from 6-8 pm and Saturdays from 2-6 pm.

- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Think about your personal goals. Look for a teacher that has the skill set to meet those goals. Secondly, look for a teacher that makes you feel comfortable. Singing is a deeply personal venture. No other musical instrument is a physical part of your body. This means a greater level of trust is needed between the voice teacher and student than in any other student/teacher relationship. An empathetic teacher is key.
