Learning to sing is fun!
You can do it. Even if you might think that you can't sing, I bet you can!
It's all about patience, listening, and practice.
All voice lessons are tailored to the student's abilities and interests.
I will work with your individual vocal needs by developing an appropriate vocal technique.
This means releasing the sound, breathing, getting an effective, efficient tone, and extending the range where necessary.
We will explore various vocal styles, musical theory, and improvisation too.
I teach a broad range of styles from musical theatre, folk, Celtic, rock, contemporary, jazz, and some classical.
My students vary in age and ability.
The foundation of good singing is the same for all styles.
I do not accept just anyone as a student.
I prefer to teach people who really want to learn and have a passion for what they do.
How long will this take?
Well, that depends on your goals.
Students ages 5-11 usually schedule a 30 minute lesson, while students age 12 through adult may feel that a 45 or 60 minute lesson will do the trick.
Just as for any other instrument, weekly lessons are essential.
If a student is really motivated to train their voice, a regular lesson time and regular home practice is necessary to hear and feel results.
What are your goals?
Having goals for voice lessons is so helpful!
Do you want to audition for musicals, community theater or college acceptance auditions?
Do you want to sing for friends and family or have dreams of going professional?
Do you want to inspire confidence within yourself to just sing out listening to the radio?
All of these goals are attainable!
I will work with you to reach your goals!
You can do this!
