My experience with Valerie Girard has been very positive. We started working with classical pieces and have now evolved to jazz. Valerie has helped me increase my range and has given me many tools I need for a better performance. Although she is firm in her direction, I always leave feeling confident and inspired. I highly recommend her!Jan 17, 2018
Valerie Girard is an excellent voice teacher. She had a successful operatic career and has a wonderful voice. She is knowledgeable about the opera and oratorio repertoire. She understands how the voice works. She hears and sees what the student needs to improve and designs her vocal exercises accordingly. She can help any level of singer to improve his or her vocal technique. I enjoy working with her.May 3, 2018
Last summer I went to the summer course Casentino Voice. Here I had the opportunity to work with Valerie Girard. She was able to give me some new ways to develop my voice and pointed out things I hadn't worked on before. I still feel the benefits from it! She is an amazing teacher who really cares about her students. I recommend her very highly.Dec 13, 2016
Singing LessonsJan 15, 2018Verified
- 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.
