About Me

"Teaching has been a discovery for me. Thinking, speaking and observing fellow minds are three of my favorite things. I put them at the service of my students' musical development, looking to provide the setting for great experiences through a challenging but fun and rewarding path".
"I have been dedicated for the last 5 years to the study of the Operatic Voice, developing my soprano voice. Composing songs and pieces of music, as well as studying guitar as a child, piano and percussion later, it all has been a means to further my vital singing fate, on which I persevere every day".
Andrea Z. - M. Mus., Lyric Singer, Composer, Educator, Translator & Interpreter.

*** Lesson Details ***
With years of teaching experience, Andrea will catch your individual qualities and get you acquainted with activities aimed ultimately at your interests and goals, adjusting learning situations on an individual basis.

In singing lessons, Andrea will address chiefly the material of your voice. This work involves Vocalization and is only accomplished by a growingly attentive hearing. This is why some of her students say "I study voice, but what gets most developed is my hearing". Andrea plays Piano or Guitar when accompanying her students, so they can learn to sing/play with live accompaniment as a fundamental part of their musical formation. Please bring your songs!

As for Piano lessons, be ready to work on your every-day home routine of study. Our fingers usually need much more repetition than our mind in order to learn and conquer the task. With the younger ones (and also the not-so-young ones!) it is fun to play duets for Piano four-hands from the Lesson Book, and make a video of the performance!

Andrea also offers:
• The possibility of recording your practice/performance;
• A vast library of printed and PDF music scores and materials;
• Supplementary instruction on specific matters of your own personalized education that may relate to Music Appreciation, Notation, COMPOSITION & Analysis, Arrangement, Harmony, Music History, GUITAR!, Basic Technology for Music Production, FOREIGN LANGUAGES: Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and French.

*NOTE: Flexible schedule.

*** Studio Equipment ***
"The Study of Song" operates in a old victorian house located in the Uptown neighborhood, and it features:

Meghan W. Aurora, CO

Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Singing

About Me

Earning a Bachelors of Music in Music Education (2006) and a Masters of Music in Vocal Performance (2011), I have the education to backup my extensive teaching experience. I have taught a variety of choirs, bands, private voice and piano students, and performance and audition preparation. I have also taught beginner's ear training, music history, and music theory courses. As a professional performer, I have performed with a variety of choirs/ chorales, symphonic orchestras, opera companies, and musical theater productions, both nationally and abroad.

Lessons are focused on the individual strengths and needs of each student, and on achieving goals set by the student and myself. Lessons are casual and friendly, with an open atmosphere for learning and asking questions - curiosity is never a sin! I like to explain things from multiple angles and believe that performance and voice lessons are not only about learning the right song, but learning the practical techniques behind singing. I have struggled with Music Theory myself, so I'm always understanding and aware of students' progress. I have very friendly cats that live with me and I'm always eager to meet the families and pets of new students.

Music is one of the most intimate forms of expression - let's see what we can discover together!

*** Lesson Details ***
All lessons are scheduled in advance. I can provide a written reminder if necessary.

I attempt to reschedule as many lessons as possible but sometimes cancellations are unavoidable. I ask that any rescheduling or cancellations be given in advance, if possible.

All lessons will end with a review of what we have learned and will also include a "homework" sheet if requested - this will help students to remember their practice assignments.

Recitals! My students hold a recital twice a year, to showcase what they've learned and how they've grown. Family and friends are always welcome and there is no admission charge. Small receptions are held afterwards, and recordings are permitted.

Audition and performance prep can be part of voice lessons, no extra charge. I work with a very accomplished professional accompanist who can also come to lessons, provide a recording, play a recital, etc. Students are responsible for all fees associated with booking the accompanist.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Electronic baby grand piano with pedal
A large assortment of sheet music and books, all borrowable by students per studio policy.
Music stand and chairs for those needing them.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will attempt to provide all music and books necessary. If the student must purchase something, I will attempt to help you find the most affordable materials. Students must provide a piano or electronic keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
I am a classically trained singer in the Italian school of singing who has experience performing opera, oratorio, art song, musical theatre/ broadway, and choral music. I have performed nationally and internationally in a variety of settings - I use this experience to drive my own teaching.

About Me

Growing up in Denver, I had a huge desire for singing and performing. By age 14, I was taking weekly singing & piano lessons, was acting constantly in local productions-many times getting the lead role.
Some of the productions I acted in: The Wizard of Oz (Dorothy), Camelot, Anything Goes (Reno Sweeney), How to Succeed in Business (Smitty), Carousel, Oklahoma, Les Miserables, and Oliver (Nancy.)
I received a 4-year scholarship to the Conservatory of Music in Stockton, CA. at the University of the Pacific. Upon graduation, I entered graduate school at the University of North Texas to continue my singing and piano studies, along with music theory, history, and musical video production.
Upon graduating UNT, I was chosen among 200 performing arts majors to be the featured soloist at the UNT commencement ceremonies. This led to an offer to tour Italy with the Rome Festival Orchestra. For the next two summers I performed in Copenhagen, Istanbul, Rome and Berlin with the Berlin Philharmonic.

*** Lesson Details ***
My students progress VERY quickly! As a teacher, I can easily identify my students’ strengths and weaknesses, and plan an individualized study course. I will instill a solid set of production skills that will easily serve ANY style of music you choose (from rock to opera.)
I will make for you a personalized recording for you to practice with daily. We will also work on songs you LOVE!
My students will have performance opportunities every 3 months. I will prepare you for college entrance auditions, TV contests, and television appearances. My students make extraordinary progress-I want you to become one of them!

About Me

I have had a varied background growing up, from being an Eagle Scout, to holding a black belt in Judo.  Growing up in Arizona and being the youngest of three boys from a very musical family, I found classical music and it became my passion. I began with piano at age 9, while also sang in many church musicals.In 2006 I graduated from Northern Arizona University with two degrees: a bachelors in vocal performance and a bachelors in piano/choral education. At NAU, I sang in many operas and piano recitals and spent three months in Germany teaching choir through the Department of Defense.Shortly after, I graduated with a masters in vocal performance from Washington University in St. Louis. The studies I learned from Wash U catapulted my love for teaching!Recently, I have been teaching out of St. John School of the Arts, where I worked with voice and piano students ages 7-60. All of my students had varying styles, but I was able to help them build a foundation of technique that would allow them to sing with a free and healthy tone in any style.I believe we all have the ability to create music and I can help you discover it!

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal in voice lessons is first and foremost to establish a solid vocal technique.  My philosophy is "singing is simple, but not easy!"  We will focus mostly on two things: breath and space for singing.  This method of teaching is known as "bel canto".  It helps build a strong foundation that then allows you to sing almost any style!  Because everyone is different, we will tailor a set of exercises to fit your needs and will help you build that strong foundation!  Once these principles begin to settle in, we will work on music.  I have a huge library of songs to chose from, but I highly encourage you to bring in your favorite songs. Remember, everyone is different and progresses at different rates, but don't be discouraged! This is not a race, but a life skill that you will continue to master!

In piano, I am classically trained.  Through a series of music books, we will work on music theory, finger dexterity, music history, ear training, eye/hand coordination, and pure enjoyment of making music. Again, everyone is different, but with some outside commitment, you will improve! Classical piano training is a great foundation for all other styles, such as jazz, pop, singer songwriter, country, etc. Piano also helps with in other aspects of your life such as memory, math, history, reading, etc.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a full size keyboard and music stand.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Please provide a piano, music books, music stand (if needed), and a lesson book for notes.

*** Specialties ***
I am a classically trained baritone specializing in bel canto. I have found this technique to be a great foundation for all styles of singing, from opera to pop. I am also classically trained at the piano. I focus on natural hand positions, note identification, music theory, and ear training. And I have fun doing it!

Michelle M. Denver, CO

Music Performance, Opera Voice, Singing

About Me

Michelle is active as both a performer and voice instructor. After a recent performance, Opus Colorado raved that “She has an absolutely enormous voice that is full of power and emotion.” As a soloist, Michelle has performed with such professional organizations as the Denver Philharmonic, the Salem Chamber Orchestra, and the Willamette Master Chorus. In November 2012, Michelle sang the role of Die Mütter in Hänsel und Gretel with the Lamont Opera Theatre. That previous May, she was featured as the soprano soloist for the Ralph Vaughan Williams Sea Symphony with both the Lamont Chorale and the Lamont Symphony Orchestra, and she also sang the role of Madame Pompous in Edwin Penhorwood’s Too Many Sopranos. In February 2012, she performed in a master class for world-renowned baritone Paolo Gavanelli. In 2010, Michelle participated in the northwest premiere of Ned Rorem’s Our Town. In March 2009, the Grace Goudy Distinguished Artist Series of Willamette University sponsored Michelle to sing the role of Fiordiligi as a guest artist in Così fan tutte. In February 2007, she sang the title role in Puccini’s Suor Angelica. Michelle previously sang the role of The Countess in Act II of Le Nozze di Figaro and performed with the Salem Chamber Orchestra as a winner of the Willamette Solo & Aria Competition in both 2005 and 2006. In March 2006, Michelle sang selections from Songs from Jewish Folk Poetry for a festival honoring the works of Dimitri Shostakovich. In April 2006, her composition Two Sketches for String Quartet was debuted by the Oregon Symphony Quartet. The following month, she performed in Carnegie Hall as a member of the Willamette University Chamber Choir.

Michelle graduated from Willamette University in May 2007 with a Bachelor of Music in Music Education, where she studied voice with Allison Swensen-Mitchell, choral conducting with Dr. Wallace Long, and composition with Dr. John Peel. In June 2013, Michelle graduated with a Master of Music from the Lamont School of Music at the University of Denver and her May 2013 graduate voice recital was honored as a Recital of Distinction by the voice faculty. Michelle is currently a voice student of Larry Glenn and Sara Bardill while pursuing a Performance Certificate in Vocal Performance at the Lamont School of Music. She was recently a voice instructor for Keizer Academy of Music & Arts in Keizer, Oregon and taught voice as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the Lamont School of Music. Michelle also recently took a step behind the scenes to work as the Assistant Stage Manager for the Lamont Opera Theatre’s wildly successful production of Oklahoma! First a native of the Philadelphia suburbs and then a long-time resident of the Pacific Northwest, Michelle now resides in the Denver Metro Area.

*** Lesson Details ***

1. Please arrive on time for your lesson. If you are late, I cannot guarantee that the time will be made up.

2. Come prepared! Practice the previous lesson’s assignment, bring assigned materials to your lesson, and complete your journal entries (if applicable).

3. Order new materials as soon as they are assigned. The sooner you have the materials, the sooner we can forge ahead in learning activities! If you are worried about costs, try your local library or a local college/university library.

4. Have fun! Learning to sing is a crazy adventure. I guarantee you will face adversities, but do not let it get you down. Every singer must learn to forge through roadblocks and will ultimately gain a great deal of strength and experience. If you find something to be particularly agonizing, do not hesitate to bring it up at your next lesson, and we will work through it together!

*** Specialties ***
I teach classical singing methods to students of all ages. I specialize in teaching through use of age-appropriate art songs, folk songs, and arias. I also offer beginning students the chance to learn essential musicianship skills like note-reading, terminology, and the basics of rhythm.

Classical singing is demanding and requires both physical and mental maturity. Although each student is different, I believe that most students should not consider private voice lessons before the age of 13. Lessons offered to younger students will teach and reinforce basic musicianship skills, while offering a healthy introduction to vocal singing that does not ask too much of the singer too soon.

About Me

Corinne D. specializes in healthy belting for musical theatre, pop, jazz, R&B, gospel and country styles of singing as well as classical and opera. She has been teaching privately since 2006, and spent two years as a student teacher for the Knoxville Children's Choirs, in her home state of Tennessee. Corinne holds a dual Master's in Opera and Musical Theatre Performance from Arizona State University, and a Bachelor's in Voice Performance with a minor in Theatre Performance from Middle Tennessee State University. Her healthy belt technique was developed through years of training in both classical and popular styles of singing with pedagogues such as David Jones, Lauren Sawyer, Anne Kopta, and Dr. Christine Isley-Farmer. Ms. D. spent the summer of 2011 studying opera and German Cabaret singing, as well as performing at the Middle Saxony Theatre in Freiberg, Germany. When studying with Corinne, singers develop classical technique as a foundation and then learn to modify the resonating space to create the desired sound for their style- leading to a popular sound without strain on the vocal cords. A strong performer, Corinne also has thorough training as an actor, and integrates acting into her lessons to turn out not simply singers, but well-rounded performers. Her musical theatre credits include: "Die Dreigroschenoper" (The Threepenny Opera) (Jenny), "Der kleine Horrorladen" (Little Shop of Horrors) (Chiffon), "The Last 5 Years" (Cathy), "Once Upon a Mattress" (Lady Larken), "Anything Goes!" (Erma), "Pippin" (Fastrada), "High School Musical" (Ms. Darbus) and "Nunsense!" (Sister Hubert). Opera credits include: "Vanessa" (Vanessa cover), "Hansel and Gretel" (Witch), "Die Zauberflote" (First Lady and Second Lady), "Suor Angelica" (La Zia Principessa and La Maestra della Novizie), and "Tartuffe" (Elmire). Corinne is also very passionate about working with modern composers and playwrights, and sang in the premiers of the following musicals and operas: "Some-thing from No-thing", "Scarlet Letter... The Musical", "Queen Victoria's Floating Garden of Secrets and Natural Wonders", and "Mayor Moon and the Storytelling Festival" - a children's musical that premiered in the US and then toured in Honduras as part of Middle Tennessee State University's Honduras Project.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons generally consist of 1/2 exercises and technique, and 1/2 repertoire, style and performance. Repertoire is chosen by the student and Corinne together- she will never assign a student a song they hate! Sheet music of repertoire will either be provided by Corinne or purchased by the student (most can be purchased online, downloaded and printed). Corinne generally works with accompaniment tracks for singer repertoire, so students can practice with accompaniment at home, and she can focus on listening to their singing during lessons. These can generally be purchased on and downloaded very cheaply. Corinne provides all singers with high quality Mp3 recordings of each lesson for easy practice of exercises and review.

*** Studio Equipment ***
High quality Mp3 recordings of each lesson included in fee!

*** Travel Equipment ***
Keyboard, high quality digital recorder (Zoom)

*** Specialties ***
Musical Theatre, Opera, Jazz, Pop, Country, Performing, Acting, Theory, Alexander Technique, healthy singing for all ages!
