About Justin

Hello! I'm Justin, a classically trained Baritone with an emphasis in opera and art song. I have earned my Bachelor’s degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Wisconsin- Stevens Point, and my Master of Music degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Minnesota. In Stevens Point I sang the roles of Papageno in The Magic Flute, Marcello in La Boheme, Judge Turpin in Sweeney Todd, and Marco in Gianni Schicchi. As part of the University of Minnesota Opera Theater I have covered Ford in Falstaff, and performed Demetrius in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. My recital appearances most recently include Robert Schumann’s Liederkreis Op. 24, Modest Mussorgsky’s Songs and Dances of Death, and multiple performances of Franz Schubert’s Die Winterreise in both Minnesota and Wisconsin. I ...

Just the teacher I was looking for

I have been a student of Justin since November 2012 and the journey so far has been incredible. I have learnt valuable techniques that make all the difference in my singing performance. I have learnt how to comfortably hit the high notes, breathe correctly and project my voice better.
Justin pays attention to every detail(like Sherlock Holmes) during practice.Yes!! He can also figure out if you did not complete your homework for the week. He always knows just the right vocal, breathing or warm up exercise to help me perform better.
He is very patient and encouraging. I remember being very nervous the first class but he made me feel at ease. He took time to understand the goals I wanted to accomplish and the areas I wanted to improve. After the half hour,I knew I found the teacher I was looking for.
Every class I get to learn something new about music, performance or my capabilities and I have never been this excited about any class ever. All thanks to Justin. He's the best!!

I couldn't ask for more

Justin has been twice the teacher I hoped for. Not only does he have an incredible and comprehensive understanding of the anatomy of the voice, but he can explain concepts in simple and relatable terms. He is also great at diagnosing the causes of weaknesses, and being a couple steps ahead when progressing through them. And, best of all, he is receptive to the student, always asking for feedback about the lesson or exercises. Being 23 and just starting singing lessons, I was a little hesitant to begin, but working with Justin has been great.

Justin is a very good teacher, and our granddaughter has been singing and enjoying it more since she started taking lessons from him.
Diedrich W. Minneapolis, MN

I've taught students who feel they are tone deaf and just want to be able to sing to their child to students who are trying to make it as a professional singer. I do not teach classical voice. I teach you to find your own natural voice and instill it with the fundamentals of singing from your core, with breath support and with expression. I make it fun and safe to explore. The students I teach the most are singer/songwriters or people who want to accompany themselves on guitar doing their favorite songs.

About Diedrich

I hold a Music and English degree from Hamline University, but that doesn't make me a good teacher. I've played professionally for over 25 years, have taught English as a Second Language, Hockey and Audio Engineering, taught people age 5 to 75, and have taught private music lessons full time in Minneapolis for the past 9 years, but this doesn't make me a good teacher. What makes me a good teacher is that I have an infectious love of music and a passionate commitment to helping people. I do have specialties, like helping singer/songwriters develop their lyrics, arrangements, voice, and performance as well as helping artists get through creativity blocks, stage fright and preparing for studio recording. My experience as a producer, studio musician and audio engineer has allowed me to ...

You really couldn't ask for a better teacher than Diedrich. I've been working with him for about a year on songwriting, singing, and guitar, and have improved so much more than I ever expected. I had no songwriting experience when I started, and with his help, I've gained the skills and confidence to write songs I feel good about. He’s patient, supportive, and genuinely cares about helping you be the best you can be. I always walk away from lessons feeling like I understand something I didn't before. He’s inspiring to learn from. You’d be lucky to have him as a teacher.

I’m a lifetime student and decided to take voice lessons this year. Diedrich has been an amazing teacher. He spends time getting to know the student and learning her goals to create the best plan for her. He’s a great listener and observer which allows him to quickly adapt to the students needs.

No need to look for another teacher in the Twin Cities. If you’re reading this, you've found the best and should book your first lesson now.

The BEST Guitar Teacher I've EVER had!

Diedrich,
Is a very nice, genuine person, who is honest, straightforward, and knows EXACTLY what he is doing. He is smart, wise, funny, and very charismatic. He makes taking guitar lessons a joy, rather than a chore.

I would recommend Diedrich to anyone pursuing guitar or bass lessons, whether it is for one or two lessons, or for the long term mentoring and instruction, of which he is extremely capable of providing.
Victoria V. Minneapolis, MN

I have a Bachelor's in Voice from SUNY Fredonia, a Masters Degree from the Manhattan School of Music and have study several methods and styles of singing.

About Victoria

I am an enthusiastic teacher who loves to help students explore and enjoy the process of singing. Singing and music can boost your confidence and can be an activity that is both challenging and enjoyable. Singing is also personal and I believe it is important to see lessons as a collaboration between teacher and student. I feel i have an affinity for teaching students of all ages who are completely new to singing and want to learn the basics. I am also an active performer with a focus in opera and musical theater. I currently singing with Minnesota Opera and have performed such roles as Suzuki in Madame Butterfly, Alisa in Lucia, Marcellina in Le Nozze di Figaro and the title role in Carmen. I believe that a great teacher has experience they can share with students. I understand the ...

TONE OF MY VOICE IMPROVED

Victoria is an excellent voice teacher. She taught me how to "think low" when I sing in the higher range. She helped me to concentrate on wordenunciation. She taught me how to breathe differently, when I sing. I highly recommend her.

About Michele Denise

As a professional teaching artist and vocal coach, I have been helping students of all ages and abilities "find their voice" for over 20 years. My goal is simple: to give you singing lessons that will change your life forever. You can build unshakable confidence and have fun while learning techniques professional singers take onto the stage and into the studio. And, you can have a great time doing it! Give one lesson a try and if you're not hooked, I will refund 100% of the lesson cost (in cash) at the end of your first lesson. About my vocal lessons/coaching: Most students come into lessons with the same question: "Am I any good? Is there hope for me?" Well, here's the thing... The vast majority of professional vocalists never went to school for singing! Most professional ...

I LOVE Michele. I've had a lot of experience singing and performing over the years, often paid, and I am still learning SO much from her. I expected to dive right into "fixing" my singing problems, but she is really laying a grounded and centered foundation with me. Especially for finding my best voice, not the one I think I "should" have. And relaxing everything about singing. Plus she's just so dang friendly and welcoming!

I've been training with Michele for the past few months, and it has been quite a unique and rewarding journey so far! Her commitment and desire for her student's progress is strong, and in a short amount of time she has helped me look at and work with my vocal instrument in ways I never have before. Professional, highly skilled and knowledgeable, intuitive, great sense of humor and warm spirit.
Melody M. Minneapolis, MN

Voice study is the secret to success for many contemporary vocal artists. My lessons are designed to teach you how to make your voice sound more powerful, how to use vocal technique to expand your range and expression, and how to become more confident in vocal performances. Lessons are a fantastic starting point for anyone wanting to make the most of their voice.

About Melody

Are you looking to sing or play keyboard, work on material for your band, build your repertoire, sing or play in the church choir/band, audition for a production, become a better lead singer in your rock or pop band, overcome stage-fright or wanting to get to the next level? You have come to the right place! My lessons provide students with an opportunity to deeply explore the voice, build confidence, and to develop healthy and effective singing practices, which can be applied to any style of musical singing and playing. A well-rounded music education is very important and I have fun and educational resources for learning vocal technique, ear training, harmony, pitch matching and music theory. I am very fortunate to have performed and studied Classical and Opera, musical theater

The Minneapolis Music Scene: Enjoy and Absorb!

By Michael B. - Minneapolis Voice Teacher

It's been almost a year that I've lived in the Twin Cities metro area, and it's causing me to look back on the time I've spent here - good food, good people, and outstanding music. The entire Minneapolis-St. Paul area is riddled with concert venues, bars, opera houses, concert halls, colleges and universities, theaters, and clubs (need I say more?) bursting at the seams with eager performers and reasonable admission prices, sometimes even free. Whether you are taking singing lessons in Minneapolis or simply a fan of live music, going to a show, concert or performance is always a great way to kick back after a long day's work - and if you don't watch out, you could end up learning a thing or two.

In my studio, I am a huge advocate of ...
