Introduction: I am a performer, composer, educator, and advocate. I have been teaching for four years and am a member of the faculty at the Community Music Center of Boston, where my studio includes students aged 7 to 24, in genres including (but not limited to) pop, musical theatre, classical, and R&B, at all levels of experience. I work to free the student's musical expression by nurturing what the student already does well while removing blocks and unnecessary tensions that ensnare them. I earned my MM at New England Conservatory of Music in Vocal Performance and Vocal Pedagogy and my BM in Vocal Performance and Music Theory from Stetson University. I integrate principles of cutting-edge voice science with a constant return to the emotional impulses that lead us to communicate. My students report feeling greater confidence both in their voices and in their person. I am especially passionate about training trans* singers who want to build a voice that better represents them. I believe anyone can learn to sing with a healthy, sustainable technique in whatever style they choose. I would love to help you along your journey!

After several months of professional singing-hiatus due to COVID-19, I found myself suddenly employed as a director of music ministry several states away. My voice having not been in professional use for some time, I sought Lucas’ expertise through online lessons. What I found immediately upon the first lesson was the utmost levels of professional warmth and kindness. Lucas’ respect for the individual and the individual’s instrument is incredibly refreshing in a world of rising pressures to sing to fill spaces rather than singing for one’s self. Incredibly astute as a pedagogue, Lucas is thorough in his assessment of the voice and provides sensitive feedback, often employing multiple teaching tools to ensure comprehension of technique. My experience with Lucas has been incredibly encouraging, educational, and nurturing. My goal upon entering my new job was to have access again to ease of healthy function. Lucas’ mentorship has absolutely allowed me to have the confidence to enter my new job. I whole-heartedly recommend Lucas’ instruction to anyone and everyone.

I started working with Mr. Coura last year in the late winter. It was my first time taking voice lessons and I think that he is a great teacher who helped me feel more comfortable with my singing voice. I have always been insecure about my voice and would always be super nervous to sing for shows, but I never had someone who could teach me on how to improve the way that Mr. Coura has. This year I think that we’ve grown more in our student-teacher relationship than last year, and I’ve been more open to sharing my insecurities and he is always giving me great advice that teaches me to have a better mindset when it comes to learning how to become a good singer. Something I appreciate that he does, is that he takes his time teaching me a song. We don’t rush into something new until we both feel that I am solid on the first piece. This is the best way I learn and I’m grateful that Mr. Coura understands that. Overall I think that he is a wonderful teacher and a joy to work with. He has helped me improve so much as a singer. Not only technique wise but confidence wise as well, which is huge for me. I am thankful that he is my teacher and I am excited to work with him again in the next year.

In every single lesson, Lucas helps me discover new things about my voice. I study with him to become a more versatile singer and to understand my own instrument more fully. We work together to free my voice by taking apart the physical and mental blocks that get in my way.

In addition to his vast knowledge of repertoire and vocal technique, Lucas takes a very personal approach to voice instruction. He listened to my insecurities about my voice and guided me through exercises that not only improved my singing, but also made me feel more confident in the sounds I was producing.

FAQs

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

    My rate is a reflection of my education and experience in this field–I charge what I charge because I believe I can bring you immense value in an hour. While I cannot build your voice for you, I can point you in the direction of the work you need to do to build it yourself. That said, I am a first-generation immigrant from a low-income family and I grew up loving music more than anything. I want to make sure that my pricing model is not excluding dedicated, hardworking students who cannot afford my fee. Therefore, I do offer a sliding scale for those students discussed on an individual basis. Additionally, those students who have greater financial resources may opt to “overpay” for their lessons to directly support students who otherwise would not be able to afford lessons.

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

    Before we meet, we’ll chat about what your vocal goals are so I can determine whether I am the best person to help you reach them. Once we determine that, we’ll schedule a first consult. In our initial fit lesson, I’ll get to know your voice through a systematic series of exercises designed to show me what you already do well and what your voice isn’t *quite* willing to do yet. Through work on these exercises, we will build coordination so that you can develop a technique you can rely on. As you grow in technique and artistry, your lessons will start to look slightly different–we’ll talk more about strategy, repertoire selection, and moving forward as a musician. Throughout the process, my focus is on giving you the tools to bring as much of your authentic self to the process as possible, so that you can feel free to express yourself fully and completely when the lights are on you!

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

    I earned my BM in vocal performance and music theory from Stetson University and my MM in vocal performance with a concentration in pedagogy from the New England Conservatory of Music. While I pursued my degrees, I taught at local community schools. My approach was always informed by my journey as a student, singer, and individual, and my students grew in technique and confidence along the way!
