I have worked with Ms. Girard frequently, attending her Summer program Casentino Voice twice and taking private lessons after that. What I like about the classes is her very concrete, clear and consistent vision on vocal technique which is based on the principles of great old school Italian singing (coordinated registers, clear vowels, breathing, core). Besides that Ms. Girard is a lovely lady who likes a laugh and will be honest without being harsh. Ms. Girard has had an extensive career so she has great experience and knows what she’s talking about. I’ve already learned a lot from her and will continue to do so.Oct 20, 2019
She is very knowledgeable and patience. Make you feel really comfortable and boost your skills to your singing skills. She also does singing tutorial (casentino voice) in Italy also you performing at the end of tutorial . I'm so exiting to have this kind of opportunity.Jun 20, 2015Verified
Val is so pleasant to work with and has a great sense of humor along with excellently tending to what you want her to help you with. Scheduling is always easy and she goes about teaching in a way specific to the way you will understand it. As well as feeling like you're learning, you feel as if you're working with a friend.Mar 3, 2015Verified
Valerie is a fabulous singer with such a rich experience that she shares generously with her students. My experience with her is very helpful with lots of new approches in singing.She is the best.Jan 19, 2014VerifiedValerie Girard Vocal Studio in person or remote's reply
Elena came to me as a fairly well-know pop singer. Her range has grown tremendously and she has really grasped the technique. I'm so proud of her and admire her dedication! I look forward to continuing work with her to see where it will all go!
I met Valerie during a Masterclass held in Casentino in 2016. She was very positive, yet demanding and right on with spotting my technical issues. For the art of "bel canto" singing I have learned a lot during that week and - what I personally feel the best achievement of a Masterclass - taken inspiration and curiosity home with the wish to keep on working on these issues. Only a few lessons with Valerie have given me methods and ways of practicing the "bel canto specifics". After returning home I have started working with her via Skype-lessons (which works fine, given a distance of about 6.400 kilometers). Thank you Valerie!Dec 5, 2016
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I prefer to teach a one hour lesson. If a student can’t afford my normal fee, we can discuss it. I do charge if lessons aren’t cancelled with 24 hr notice (unless there’s an emergency).
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First I ask every student to bring a song or aria to sing at your first lesson so that I get a sense of where you are vocally and musically. We then work on vocal exercises and technique. The rest of the lesson is spent on singing your music and immediately start applying the new technique.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?The Juilliard School, Oberlin Conservatory, New England Conservatory of Music, HB Acting Studio, The Goldovsky Institute. Private study with Felix Knight, Jennie Tourel, Frederick Jagel, Viviane Mordo.
