*** Lesson Details ***
I believe it is very important that students know music theory along with performance knowledge. During lessons, I like to spend time going over music theory with the student, depending on what their instrument and age level is. This includes learning scales (major and minor), chords, reading music and anything the student shows an interest in. It is very important that students learn the basics of music to perform an instrument. I also incorporate learning pieces/songs in the lessons. The songs and pieces that I incorporate in the lessons are songs that are at the student's performance level and is something they are interested in learning. I believe it is important that students learn the fundamentals of music and have fun at the same time.

Liesl M. Pottstown, PA

Subjects Taught

Accompaniment, Choir, Classical Voice, Ear Training, Musical Theater, Music Performance, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing, Vocal Training

About Me

A well-rounded and healthy individual will make the healthiest singer, with creative ideas for interpretation. The teaching of voice to integrate historical vocal pedagogy and newer, scientific methods of voice instruction is my preferred way to approach singing in the voice student. This next generation of singers in today€™s conservatories are trained with the beauty of the Bel Canto technique and the knowledge of voice specialists, which is something truly remarkable. The tried and true methods of the Manuel Garcias and Mathilde Marchesi should be preserved for singers in a way that also acknowledges the growing field of laryngeal and voice science and pathology. Incorporating techniques of Yoga and Holistic Health practice into the voice studio can only help us to eliminate the bodily harm of regularly performing and the stressful lives that go into being a singer.

Holistic Health and Yoga studies were both integrated into my undergraduate curriculum at San Francisco State University, giving me a mere glimpse into the wealth of knowledge of these fields. Even a brief understanding of the improvements in posture you can gain from a regular yoga practice or integrating Alexander Techniques into the studio can not only extricate pain in the body, but allow for improvement of breath and vocal tone as a result.

My official bio:

Liesl is a coloratura soprano originally from Yuba City, California. She recently completed her Master of Music from Westminster Choir College in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy. She completed her undergraduate studies in 2011 at San Francisco State University with a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance.

In February, 2014 Liesl performed as a guest artist for the 50th Anniversary of the Frank V. de Bellis Collection at the J Paul Leonard Library at her Alma Mater, San Francisco State University, in San Francisco, CA. She sang the role of Abelle in a special presentation the Scarlatti Oratorio Il Primo Omicidio with other selected SF State alumni.

During her graduate studies, Liesl sang the roles of Madame Herz in Der Schauspieldirektor, Antonia in Offenbach's Les Contes d'Hoffmann, and Tytania in Britten's Midsummer Night's Dream with Westminster Opera Theater. Liesl was also an active participant in the opera workshop class taught by Nova Thomas, singing the roles of Zerbinetta in Ariadne auf Naxos, and Konstanze in Die Entführung aus dem Serail. Liesl also enjoys work behind the curtain, and directed scenes from The Marriage of Figaro and The Merry Widow. In November, 2013, Liesl participated in a masterclass with soprano Dawn Upshaw. In Summer, 2013, Liesl was an Opera Fellow at Rider University's CoOPERAtive Program. There, she sang in masterclasses with Kathleen Kelly (University of Texas) and Pierre Vallet (Tokyo Opera, Metropolitan Opera). This program also offered the fantastic chance to receive private dramatic coaching with director Amy Hutchison (Chicago Lyric Opera).

In the first year at Westminster, graduate students participate in the Westminster Symphonic Choir, under the direction of Joe Miller. Here, Liesl was able to sing with the Philadelphia Orchestra under the direction of Yannick Nezet-Seguin, the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra under the direction of Daniel Barenboim, and the Simon Bolivar orchestra under the direction of Gustavo Dudamel. This experience provided the chance to perform in such locations as the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia and Carnegie Hall in New York City.

Before beginning graduate studies, Liesl taught Vocal Techniques at Marysville Charter Academy for the Arts. There, she also served as the vocal coach & accompanist for the lead roles and chorus in the school's musical, She Loves Me. In Marysville and Yuba City she sang with Borgamaria Lyric Opera, Sutter Performing Arts Association, and was a soloist in Handel's Messiah with the Yuba-Sutter Oratorio Society.

In undergraduate studies at San Francisco State, she appeared as Esmeralda in The Bartered Bride, Flipote in Tartuffe, and in numerous scenes productions with the opera workshop. As a soloist, she sang excerpts from the role of Maria in a West Side Story vignette under the direction of Vance George, as well as singing as a soloist in Mendelssohn's Ave Maria. In April, 2011, she placed first in the National Association of Teachers of Singing Bay Area Chapter festival for Art Songs. Among her experiences, Liesl was a member of the San Francisco State Chamber Singers, University Chorus, Women's Chorus and Afro-Cuban Ensemble. Outside of school, she stayed active in the Bay Area performing arts community, singing chorus with the San Francisco Lyric Opera, Urban Opera, and Golden Gate Opera.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student should have a piano or keyboard if they are doing in-home lessons. It's not required, but extremely helpful. If not, please have some sort of iPod speakers.

*** Specialties ***
I was trained in the classical Bel Canto style, but I am comfortable with many different genres, including jazz and musical theater.

I've performed in choirs from around the San Francisco, New York, and Philadelphia metro regions, in venues such as Carnegie Hall, the Kimmel Center, and Davies Symphony Hall. I have also been part of numerous opera productions and I encourage my students to participate in community music groups. I have studied vocal pedagogy and worked in education for a while and I am flexible with all different learning styles and view music as part of the core curriculum.
