Introduction: My interest and training in early childhood music education allows me to understand how people develop music skills and where in their development they may need extra reinforcement to become the kind of musician they want to be. My experience working with young children allows me to have a great deal of patience and understanding for new learners. It also has given me lots of ideas and learning techniques to assist an individual in learning their own unique way. As a performer, I can also share my own personal experiences and techniques that have worked for me. I really enjoy seeing and hearing a person understand music in a way that makes their abilities match their desired outcome. I rejoice when someone has found their authentic voice and is enjoying their own singing. I love to also hear from singers that someone has noticed improvement in their skills, tone, interpretation, breath control, pitch, etc. It is wonderful to see and hear, that the groundwork I have helped a student learn, is paying off!

Singing Lessons

Brenda is absolutely amazing she’s very caring! And also work with whatever level you’re at, she helped me build so much confidence in myself and it always a pleasure to show up at her sessions! I see myself improving every week, I couldn’t ask for a better teacher!

Singing Lessons

My daughter so enjoyed her first lesson with Brenda. She is an encouraging, kind and very talented teacher. My daughter was quite nervous to sing for a stranger, but Brenda made her feel comfortable and secure right away, and gave her some terrific instruction and feedback. Kalie left feeling emboldened to step out and give it her best and she learned some incredibly useful information right away that improved her singing on the spot. I would highly recommend Brenda! She is exactly who we were looking for!

Singing Lessons (for adults)

Brenda is an awesome teacher. I grew continuously during our time together. If you are looking for singing lessons, look no further. Brenda is the teacher you want.

Singing Lessons

She was extremely kind and gave incredibly good notes on what I could improve. I was showing improvement within the first lesson. If you are on the fence then I urge you to go with her.

I had one introductory lesson. She was great, but I decided not to pursue singing lessons.

FAQs

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

    Yes, all voice or guitar 30 minute lessons are $25, all 45 minute lessons are $37, all 60 minute lessons are $50 as of 2017. Please note: Prices will change on January 1, 2020 to: $27 for 30 minutes and $41 for 45 minutes and $55 for 60 minutes.

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

    I speak with students about their voice/guitar and learning goals. For voice students, I ask the student to prepare and sing a whole song for me at their first lesson. After a range check and some warm up exercises, the student sings the prepared song. I listen and them tell the student what I hear. I discuss their strengths and weaknesses and talk about where I could help their voice improve. I ask the student to evaluate and let me know if I am the right person for their continued instruction based on our lesson and discussions. For guitar, I have the student discuss what they want to do with their guitar playing. I give an overview of how I teach and what we can learn in a particular time period. I mix note reading, chord and strumming in each lesson.

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

    As a member of the American Choral Directors Association, I attend yearly conferences where clinicians discuss vocal methods, styles, repertoire and in depth vocal and conducting issues related to teaching voice and choral music. As a member of NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing), I keep updated on information about the voice and the singing world. As a performing musician, I experience the same issues many students have and am continually striving to improve any weakness I have by rehearsing, reviewing and discussing music with other professional musicians. I also expand my music repertoire by learning new styles and pieces of music by myself and in groups. I also assist my fellow choir members by running sectional rehearsals and sharing vocal techniques to enhance the musicality of a piece.
