About this pro
vocal lessons, B. Morash is a warm and inviting person. My first day was a class room. she had a former student in practice I was able to watch them practice without any one feeling or being discomforted. I had 2 previous teachers before her. She went right to work, she listened to me. She is breaking my voice down and rebuilding it. I am pleased that B. cares about me is #team me.Dec 8, 2015Verified
Barbara is amazing!! I just started working with her, and she has been very helpful and encouraging. I'm always excited when I go to lessons, and I've learned so much in such a short period of time. I can't wait for what the future holds!Nov 7, 2015Verified
Barbara is a great instructor she is very knowledgeable about her material. I have been taking lessons with her for 2-3 Mos now and I commend her to you. She is helping me with much more than my voice she is helping my to get over the stage freight and helping build my confidence. She is honest and encouraging. I am very grateful to God to have her not only as an instructor but as friend. She is such a sweet caring person God Bless her!May 27, 2015Verified
I have had nothing short of a wonderful experience with Barbara Morash! Her advanced knowledge of vocal pedagogy allows her to address any number of vocal issues as well technical problems. Her technique is solid and her understanding of it as well as vocal health allows her to give her students a clear comprehension of how the voice works as well as the building blocks to build and or solidify their own techniques. Having many teachers who were not able to explain how the voice works or to explain various techniques, my lessons with Barbara have been eye opening and fulfilling in meeting my own needs for better vocal knowledge and in my own professional performing. I would highly recommend her to any student, beginner or advanced, as she has a compassionate and energetic way of meeting anyone's various vocal needs. She is a pleasure to work with!Oct 5, 2015Verified
Barbara is amazing! She is so friendly, warm, and inviting that even for a person as shy as I am it is easy to sing in front of her. She really knows what she is teaching and makes sure that you start with the proper techniques for breathing so you don't hurt your voice in any way. She also makes sure you understand the material or exercises and why you are doing them before you leave to practice on your own. She is motivational and inspiring! After every lesson, I can't wait to go home and practice and then of course, to see what the next lesson holds in store for me! Although I've only had a few lessons thus far, I can say without a doubt, that she is one of the best teachers I have ever had in any subject area, not just singing!!!Jul 27, 2015Verified

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am constantly aware of new ideas in teaching methods. I make it a point to see concerts of all styles including recitals at my Alma mater, New England Conservatory of Music, jazz, rock and dance clubs throughout my area, high school and middle school productions, community theater and Broadway shows in Manhattan. I go to classical concerts and operas. I keep abreast of the vocal opportunities offered at Disney, Busch Gardens, Cedar Point and Six Flags. I am active with helping my students who are bridging into their first music teaching positions in the school systems. I'm pretty current.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I was in a teaching program growing up in my school system. I have been teaching forever and I love it. I am also a professional singer. I love singing too. It just makes sense when you love to teach to teach what you know how to do.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?I have been doing fundraisers for The First Baptist Church of Melrose where I am employed as the choir director and pianist/organist through a series of concerts and musicals. I produced a recital of French music, "Toast à l'élégante musique français," produced and directed "Godspell" and produced and played the piano for a recital entitled "Opera and What Broadway Did To It". I am preparing another fundraiser for this summer entitled "Cinderella's Funtastic Ball". I will be looking for all kinds of singers and dancers of all ages to be involved in this project. We have a great time.
