    Noune is an excellent teacher with the skills, knowledge and ability to communicate complex ideas in a simple clear way to help her students understand and use proper vocal technique. . Even though I'd studied with a number of very "reputable" teachers in the past, I'd found I'd accummulated a variety of vocal problems which made singing frustrating and disappointing. When I started with Noune I could barely sing a simple scale. With patience and encouragement, Noune guided me through vocal therapy excercises which helped to relax overly active muscles in my throat and neck. She helped me to identify and activate the correct muscles in the diaphram and torso to properly support my sound. Within a short time, I noticed my voice freeing up, my sound became more natural and resonant. My vocal range has increased and my voice has become more agile, but best of all, I'm enjoying singing again. Noune understands the voice, not only from the perspective of a teacher, but as a singer, and this allows her an increased capacity to understand her students and how to further their vocal development. I am grateful for her help.

    "Every lesson with Noune is a small journey on a way to small discoveries that lead to big changes. I suppose that many teachers know all the teaching techniques. What is important is that Noune goes on the mission with her student to get to the root cause of the problem that keeps you from setting your voice free. You would feel that every second of the lesson is not wasted. Besides been an experienced and exceptional teacher, Noune is an exceptionally talented singer. It surely helps when she can show what she means by the way of example once all the mechanics were discussed and understood. "

About this pro

I am a voice teacher with 20 years of experience singing and teaching. I have sung leading roles with Granite State Opera, Opera Boston, and others. I have been finalist in major vocal competitions like the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. I had vocal problems and overcame them. Through the suffering and trying to find answers, I learned a lot about the voice. I have a good ear and can diagnose problems with your voice by just hearing you. I give you specific solutions to overcome tight feeling in your throat or hoarseness after singing or speaking for a long time or cracking. I teach any style to any level, for ages 7 and up. My students love that I have very clear explanations and make everything simple to understand. They tell me that I make the lessons fun and bring back the joy of singing. The coordination for singing comes with practice, but you need to know how to do it. Singing doesn't have to be complicated. I teach you how to breathe, how to support you voice, how to project your voice, and how to sing high notes with ease. I have MA in Vocal Studies from Komitas National Conservatory. I had further studies at Boston Conservatory with Penelope Bitzas and with Metropolitan Opera singer Maria Spacagna.

Q & A

  • What types of customers have you worked with?
    Improve tone Increase vocal range Help the diction Improve strength of voice Make voice more expressive Ease and health of vocal production Self-confidence when performing Improve ability to sustain long notes Improve ability to sing long phrases on one breath
  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
    Try several lessons with a teacher, if at the end of the first lesson you are in pain, run away. But if you feel like it's improving slightly give the teacher a few more chances. It's hard to tell if the teacher will really help you or not in one or two lessons. The teacher is getting used to you too, they need time to understand what is your voice like and it's limitations and problems and what is the best way to address it. If it feels really forceful, it's probably not right. Singing should feel as natural as speaking loudly or shouting across the street to someone.
