Acting, Opera Voice, Singing, Speaking Voice
I am dedicated to helping you to feel comfortable singing, performing and even auditioning. Teaching healthy techniques to free up your voice and give you the confidence to sing what you want.
I have recently finished a Master's of Music degree from Brigham Young University (BYU) in vocal performance. I have taught private and group voice lessons since 2011, and have developed effective ways of communicating to students. I am trained to help students get to know their voices and how to use them effectively.
I have performed major operatic roles for BYU, and am currently performing with the Utah Opera Chorus in Salt Lake City. I have performed in many venues and in front of hundreds of people. My background in performance allows me to teach my students necessary techniques to conquer stage fright and enjoy singing in front of people.

My first priority is making the student feel comfortable, we will move only as fast as the student wants to move. We will start by setting some goals- what the student is hoping to get out of voice lessons. Be it "learn how to sing/speak better" or to prepare for up-coming auditions, I will keep your goals in mind when teaching.
Learning how to sing can be a slow process, but after 3-6 months of studying, you will be able to notice many improvements in your vocal tone, breath management, overall posture and self confidence. Remember that, with any type of study, the more consistently you practice, the more consistent your progress.
Students will be asked to find or purchase their own music (average of $10-$30). Please let me know if this is going to be an issue, there are sometimes free publications online that we can look into.
Also, if you do not find the time you were hoping for on my availability calendar go ahead and contact me, we can discuss the options!
Lastly, I do have cats. While I keep my studio space cleaned and dusted please be aware if you are concerned about allergies!
*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, CD player, music stand, music reference books
*** Travel Equipment ***
When teaching out of my home I can provide a piano, music stand and CD player as well as books to reference. When teaching at student's home I would like them to provide a piano or keyboard. However, I can bring reference books, CD player, and a travelling keyboard if necessary. Students must buy or find their own music- I am happy to assist in finding the least expensive option.

I believe that classical voice training is a solid foundation to build any voice style upon, from opera to musical theater and jazz. I work on techniques that fit the students goals and individual vocal needs as well as acting and performance techniques, including how to read and interpret music notation, audition preparation, and proper vocal care. My goal is to help the student gain confidence though singing and performing- any age, any style.
My name is Shanae and music has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I began piano at the age of 5 and saxophone in the fourth grade. I switched to bassoon in band my sophomore year of high school and majored on it at Brigham Young University, graduating with a bachelors degree in Music Education in April 2012.
I have had many music teachers over the last 20 years, and each teacher has added to my own teaching style. Having experienced so many techniques and styles I am able to adjust to each student's needs.
I gained an appreciation for all aspects of music through my bachelors degree. I believe in teaching each student musical concepts that are common to all instruments as well as specific techniques for the students chosen instrument, piano and/or bassoon.
I am married to a wonderful man who supports me in all my ambitious dreams. He finds true joy in music and I often find him playing the piano or singing simply out of the pleasure of it. I hope all music students can enjoy playing their instruments and continue it throughout their life for the joy it brings them.
I truly enjoy teaching music lessons with all ages, to watch them grow and learn. Music touches us in unique ways and creates experiences that are unique to each individual. I love watching students find their own experiences with music and its many wonders.
*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons begin as the student walks into the house and up to the piano. As we get the supplies out we talk about the week and exciting events coming up.
Once books and notebook are out we start with our technique patterns such as 5 Finger Patterns, Scales, and/or technique books such as Dozen a Day and Hanon.
After technique we start into lesson and performance books as well as other recital materials. This is a chance for the students to play what they have worked on during the week, learn new practice techniques, and receive new goals for their pieces in their notebook.
For the last 3-5 minutes of the lesson the students fill out their reward sheets. For every goal met and every 30 minutes of practicing the student receives a sticker. Those stickers can be saved up to 'buy' prizes. Additional stickers are earned through memorization.
Lessons are tailored to each student. We focus on their needs as a musician and find more effective ways to practice and play. Technique allows them to focus on fine motor skills such as finger placement and posture of the hands and wrist especially. Lesson books move through concepts and we reinforce concepts such as note reading and rhythm through counting and note naming out loud as the student plays. Metronomes, duets and other tools are used as necessary to develop the ability to match with others and keep a steady beat. I pull from many sources and techniques to help each student reach their full potential
*** Studio Equipment ***
Musically Me Studio is in my home. The piano is within sight of the front door. Students come right in and sit at the upright piano for lessons while I sit on a chair next to the piano.
Bassoon Lessons are help in a room off of the main room with chairs and a stand set up and waiting to go. Bassoon students and I will walk to the room together after I answer the door.
Parents can park outside the house. The road is wide enough for cars to park on both sides without impeding traffic.
