My name is Amber Stachitus. I am a lyric soprano. I hold a Master's Degree from the University of Utah and a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder, both with an emphasis in Vocal Performance. My education focused on Vocal Pedagogy; Music Theory; Italian, French, German, English and Czech Diction, as well as training in Vocal Technique and Performance. I have studied voice with Julie Simson, Ariel Bybee and Dr. Robert Breault.
I am fluent in Italian and have a grounding in German and French IPA and grammar as it applies to translations.
My teaching focuses on classical technique and vocal exercises that provide the foundation for a successful performance. I assign art songs, arias and musical theater pieces according to the singer's individual abilities, in line with the goals they have for their practice.
I provide a customized lesson: 30 mins, 45 mins, or 60 mins (for advanced students), consisting of warm-ups, vocalization and repertoire work. We will also focus on diction and vocal health. We will set and work towards your goals as a performer, whether they be personal or professional, family events or competitions. Classical technique will enhance your singing, whatever the genre.
