About Hargis Voice And Piano Studio

hired 48 times on Thumbtack

I have taught piano and voice at the college level for 28 years. I work well with young people and adults, from beginners to professionals.

I love working with motivated students! I have been told that I am encouraging and respectful of my students.

My studio is classically oriented, but I also teach Broadway, gospel and light pop. I stay active as an opera coach with the Metropolitan Opera singers and work with the Harrower Opera Festival sponsored by Georgia State University in Atlanta.

I teach at my home near I-10 and Beltway 8.

    I have only had three lessons with Mrs. Hargis.
    I am impressed not only with her knowledge and experience on music and singing but with her teaching abilities. She is highly recommended.

    Lucy has helped me get my singing voice back in shape. She is very knowledgeable about the voice and the use of breath and control.

    an't say enough good things about Ms. Lucy! To start, she is the sweetest person and so, so patient! :) Not only does she have a beautiful voice, but her knowledge of music is vast and she taught me how to sing notes and songs I never thought I could. She is encouraging and honest. If you're not using your voice correctly or perhaps, not breathing properly...she ever so kindly lets you know and patiently explains to you how it should be done. I am so glad I hired her as a voice instructor and would whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone wanting to take voice lessons! She will make you fall in love with the wonderful world of music and singing!

    Lucy is wonderful!

    She is very kind and patient and fun to get to know. She listens to find out what your experience level is and what type of music/singing you would like to become more proficient in, and then she shapes the lessons based on that. I think she's very reasonably priced for the quality of the lessons. You get all of her considerable experience and expertise and she helps you learn and progress at your own pace. I started taking voice lessons with her in late February and in August I am already noticing how much my vocal range has expanded and the quality of my voice has improved, and she gives me great advice for auditions and general knowledge for singing. She is a great teacher and a blessing!

  • 5/5 stars Singing Lessons Verified Review

    My daughter is taking voice lessons from Lucy Hargis. Lucy is knowledgeable, supportive and an experienced teacher. She seems to get genuine joy from teaching and seeing a student succeed. After only a few lessons, my daughter is already singing better and is more confident in her abilities. I would highly recommend Lucy Hargis.

    Lucy is a friendly and patient teacher! I had absolutely no music experience prior to our lessons but that didn't bother her one bit! She is always so encouraging. I look forward to my piano lessons every week!

  • 5/5 stars Singing Lessons Verified Review

    I have learned a great deal in my voice lessons after only three weeks. Lucy is easy to work with. She is very personable and can get her point across well. She knows her subject. I would highly recommend her as a voice teacher or coach.

  • 5/5 stars Singing Lessons Verified Review

    Lucy is experienced and caring. Within the first two lessons she has given me techniques that have already improved my singing. I came to learn to sing opera, which is her specialty, and I am very satisfied so far. Since I already have some musical knowledge, Lucy is just the right instructor to take me to the next level. During my very first lesson, she was able to accurately asses my level and ability, and to give me just the right exercises and "homework" to improve my skills. I highly recommend Lucy to anyone who wants to train in opera or simply get better at singing!

Question and answer

Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

A. I continue to work professionally as a collaborative pianist and church musician. I'm active in various LinkedIn groups to keep abreast of new ideas. I'm also active in the NATS organization as both a voice teacher and collaborative pianist. I enjoy keeping up with several blogs of internationally renowned voice teacher colleagues for any new concepts or teaching theories.

Q. Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.

A. I charge $50 an hour, $40 for 45 minutes, and $30 for half hour lessons.

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. I was destined to be a musician from birth. My parents were both classically trained pianists and played two-piano arrangements around the state. In an opera rehearsal when I was assisting the conductor in the pit I realized that I could Not NOT do music for my life! It is a difficult career but so rewarding and FUN!

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. I take a student where he is and help him to improve and move forward. We prepare for upcoming performances and auditions, concentrating the most appropriate repertoire for each situation. This is true for piano and voice.

Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

A. Last May I was one of three vocal coaches and pianists working at the Harrower Opera Festival at Georgia State University in Atlanta. We presented two productions in
three weeks: The Tales of Hoffmann and Street Scene. It is a program for young singers wanting experience in opera. I'll be returning 2014 for the upcoming season.

In September ,2014, I was in the HFAC production of NUNSENSE. I played piano in the onstage band and was Sister Lucy!! Much fun.

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. Music as a profession requires great commitment and time. It is important to "hone your craft" and not just take for granted that talent will always win out. There are many talented people who have fallen by the wayside because someone less talented worked harder and put in the necessary time to ensure success.
