Samantha Talmadge is the best thing to have happened to me during my musical four years in college. Samantha gave me tools and homework. I learned technique, different languages, and control. She held me to an extremely high standard and had endless patience. Samantha helped coach my choral voice into a strong, confident soloist. I led my a cappella group, sang in a rock band, was Vice President of chamber choir, and sang with the president of my college at graduation. I attribute my growth and confidence to Samantha, who helped me own my voice. I feel prepared to audition for gigs in the real world, and I know all of her students sing similar praises. If you seek to have a voice teacher who pushes your comfort zone, prepares you professionally, and have a blast along the way, Samantha Talamadge is unparalleled in her field.
