I've been taking voice lessons from Natalie for a couple of months and just in the short time, I've improved my vocal technic and qualiy. I'm almost 40 years old and wish I would have started voice lessons a long time ago. There is so much more to singing than I realized. Natalie is extermely knowledgable, experienced and provides an easy and comfortable learning environment. She also video records each lesson so I can go back and practice excerises and recall our conversations and helpful tips. If you are thinking about voice lessons, I would recommend calling Natalie.Apr 21, 2014VerifiedA Higher Note LLC Voice Studio's reply
Thank you, Anne. It was a pleasure working with you for a year to grow and develop your voice, not to mention attend The Voice audition with you.

Natalie has made learning piano so enjoyable. After having a bad experience elsewhere, Natalie has made me feel very comfortable and supported. I really look forward to my lessons.Mar 2, 2020VerifiedA Higher Note LLC Voice Studio's reply

Natalie was very knowledgeable, and an excellent teacher! She individualized the lessons and was quickly able to help me fix issues with my posture and technique. I learned a ton, and it was really enjoyable!May 17, 2017Verified

My 12 year old granddaughter has been a voice student of Natalie's for two years. She started out a rather reluctant participant with all the confidence issues of most 10 year old girls. The changes in the last 2 years are nothing short of remarkable. I am beginning to see a confident, self-assured vocalist emerging. One of the most encouraging things about studying with Natalie is that she teaches her students more than singing. She concentrates on the theory and how to use their voice to their utmost. She is a very patient and caring individual and that is very evident in her teaching style. Due to her encouragement and instruction my granddaughter is now singing with joy and exuberance to groups of 25 - 500.Sep 16, 2016VerifiedA Higher Note LLC Voice Studio's reply
I am honored and humbled. Thank you.

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?After a new student or student's parent contacts me and we agree upon a lesson day and time, I send them an email with complete instructions, including 1. What happens next 2. Registration instructions for student (and parent/guardian, where applicable) 3. Payment instructions 3. As applicable, either directions to my home-studio or requirements/instructions for logging in for internet lessons 4. Required forms, which must be completed and returned to me before the first lesson.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My training has come from a variety of world-class music instructors and choral conductors (Norma Lowder, Earle Lowder, Gary Bradberry, Morris Beachy, and others); private music lessons with instructors specializing in classical (bel canto) (Margaret Riddleberger, Bonnie Bradley); Broadway-performance technique, general music theater and performance (David Troupe); contemporary method (Jeannie Deva, Per Bristow, Brett Manning and the school of hard knocks. :-) By continually studying and training with the self-paced publications and tools of Seth Riggs (Speech Level Singing Method), Jeannie Deva (Deva Vocal Method/The Contemporary Vocalist), Per Bristow (Sing with Freedom/Bristow Vocal Method), and Ken Tamplin (Ken Tamplin Vocal Academy), I've continually developed in vocal freedom, power, agility, and performance skill. Since 1979, I’ve been involved in a broad variety of musical endeavors: musicals (two seasons in The Washington Savoyards); dinner theaters in the D.C. area; vocal entertainment on a dinner cruise ship; wedding and event singing; church soloist; church worship bands; church choirs and licensed major musicals as a child, youth, and adult; The University of Texas Longhorn Singers. I'm trained in early childhood music education (both Music TogetherTM and KindermusikTM) and owned and ran a KindermusikTM studio for several years. Also, I've taught music, especially singing lessons and general musicality, in public and private schools, libraries, churches and childcare centers. Essentially, I've been involved in all manner of singing and music-making, whether in the context of professional, personally-meaningful, and/or fun, from childhood up to now. I believe music is a gift and love to see people of ALL ages singing with expression, power, agility, confidence, and joy - for life!
