Opera Voice, Singing

About Me

If you have ever wanted to really learn how to sing correctly, I can help you. I have personally taken voice lessons twice a week for well over 15 plus years from a master voice/opera singer who was trained by some of the best voice instructors in the Greater New York City area and also in Europe. In addition she was associated with the New York Metropolitan Opera. I enjoy working with each of my many students to exceed their initial vocal goals. Many of my students are professional singers, church choir members, actors, musicians, and I even train a Hollywood producer's Arizona clients!

I have taken graduate level courses at Arizona State University in Speech and Hearing Sciences. I've worked in the Radiology Department of a major hospital for over 10 years, seven years as supervisor. I have gained a very in-depth knowledge of the anatomical/physiological aspects of the human voice and body. My in-depth knowledge can help free your tired, sore, and/or hoarse "instrument".

I love to work with anyone truly interested in expanding their vocal horizons. I enjoy making people laugh and help them develop their vocal aspirations into reality. My credo is singing must come from within the heart and soul of every artist. If we are too serious about so much of the technical stuff, our art will suffer and singing becomes more of a job then a passion. It must remain a passion within us to truly touch us and others.

My vocal training background is Bel Canto, the Italian School of Singing. In addition to Bel Canto, I was also cross trained in the German School of singing by the SAME instructor. This is very unusual since most singers which train Bel Canto do not generally cross over to German, due to language/vocal placement issues. The Great Pavarotti never sung German due to this very issue. The two schools of singing blend perfectly together when those schools are properly introduced and integrated during the voice lessons. The results are solid, progressive vocal growth and unbelievable beauty of tone which can be astonishing. This is what truly separates a singer with an unbelievable instrument from that of a "vocal orator".

Please be assured that I DO NOT ever force any of my students to sing opera. So if you are interested in just learning how to sing to the best of your ability, I can certainly help you.

A good majority of my voice students are professional performers and some are people just interested in developing their voice for their own personal fulfillment. I currently have a student who is a family physician and another is a musical composer of a well known pop song. One of my students recently sang on stage with the great Andrea' Bocelli and now he is scheduled to sing at Carnagie Hall in New York. I work hard in shedding the light of vocal knowledge to all my students. My in-depth knowledge base is there for anyone who wishes to train with me. I NEVER frown upon training individuals who have not had any prior vocal training. I am delighted to work with everyone who sincerely wishes to learn the great art of singing.

*** Lesson Details ***
I spend a good 35 minutes on vocal exercises to help strengthen and expanded the vocal range. I then move on to vocal musicianship and songs. Some of the songs I select for specific technical instruction. The student is always welcome to select his/her own music as well. I use specific songs as benchmarks to track vocal growth. I make sure my students are always cognizant of proper diaphragmatic/abdominal breath support coupled with a freed throat. I am a product of the WELL GUARDED secrets of the "Bel Canto" school of singing. It is through the Bel Canto school of singing that some of the world's greatest voices developed over the centuries. Often times my students find themselves surpassing their initial expectations! High notes are never an issue because the voice is freed to produce them. Vocal projection is almost never an issue because breath and voice are fused into one. The ability to sing softly is the result of a well freed up throat. When the throat is freed everything begins to develop beautifully. Each lesson brings forth incremental vocal growth.

I carefully work one on one with each of my students making sure that their throat and oral positioning are correct. The throat should never feel tired or tight during or after a voice lesson. My students repeatedly tell me that that notice steady vocal growth during and after each voice lesson. This makes it very exciting for both the student and me. This feeds the fire of passion to learn and grow!

*** Studio Equipment ***

Sarah C. Phoenix, AZ

Subjects Taught

Music Theory, Opera Voice, Singing

About Me

I am a classically trained singer who graduated from Cedarville University with my Bachelor's of Music degree. While I love to sing opera, I also enjoy singing pop, country and other music styles. I currently sing with the Phoenix Opera and continue to study with the Phoenix Opera co-founders.

I have taught people of all ages and backgrounds including children, adults, jazz singers, and a professional country artist. I continue to teach a variety of students with many different goals. Because I have had different voice coaches over the years, I have learned many different teaching styles and techniques that I use to help my own students progress.

*** Lesson Details ***
I love to encourage my students! I believe that recognizing improvement and rewarding it increases the student's desire to progress.

With that in mind, I start every lesson warming up the voice with exercises that teach free and easy singing with proper breath control. The student also learns sight-reading and some music theory. I use the same method when teaching songs, but as the student progresses, they learn to apply the techniques and recognize how to improve the song on their own. As they improve, they will be able to sing more challenging music.

Because every student has their own unique goal, they are expected to purchase music and books accordingly. I prefer my students record their lessons to help facilitate their practice. I strongly encourage the purchase of a recording device if you do not already have one, or at the very least to bring a note-book.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical singing and opera. I believe that having a good foundation of correct breathing, placement of sound and relaxed singing is important for any music style. When the voice as an instrument is taken care of properly, any style of music is possible. I teach these three things as fundamentals to every student no matter what genre of music they want to sing in. We then work from there to add the stylistic nuances that separate genres.

Karen also teaches Take Lessons music students (an online music student placement company) piano, voice, and guitar in her home. Karen is also an active Mary Kay Consultant.

*** Lesson Details ***
Karen's teaching style is very patient, nurturing, encouraging, and fun-loving. Karen is a teacher who sets loving but firm boundaries and guidelines. She implements structure and organization, but is not overly strict and harsh. She believes in encouraging, loving, and imparting knowledge with her students so that they will maximize their potentiality and their inner musical stars will shine.
Karen teaches piano, voice, guitar, and music theory for beginning through intermediate (for voice she teaches beginning through advanced). The curriculum that Karen uses is varied according to the student's personality and learning level. She uses her vast knowledge and information from her education and past experiences, and also Alfred Essentials of Music Theory, Alfred's Instructional books, Hal Leonard Pro-vocal Series, Faber Piano Adventures for all levels, and other resources. She also uses an assignment lesson plan book so that each student will know her clear objectives, what is expected of them and so that communication is established with the student's parents if the student is under 18. Additionally, Karen uses incentives, a point system, and rewards for self-discipline, consistent practicing, musical accomplishment and growth, and a good attitude.
Karen's students learn and perform remarkably well because of her very loving, organized, and comprehensive teaching style. They progress in amazing ways on a weekly and monthly basis. They look forward to coming to their lessons because they are treated with such respect and care. They know that Karen has such a passion and love for music, which is so contagious and is passed on to them. Therefore, these music lessons are enjoyable and enriching for the teacher and student alike.

About Me

I am an experienced voice and piano teacher with 20 + years of teaching experience.

I am passionate about teaching, and my experience includes teaching voice and piano to elementary through college students, in academic settings and in my home. I love working with people of all ages.

As a soprano, I have sung professionally with many choral ensembles, and have performed as soloist in recitals and concerts throughout the US. I have appeared in musical theater and opera productions in leading roles. I have also been a church and college choir director, and vocal coach for musical theater.

In addition, I have performed as piano soloist in various settings, and piano accompanist for choirs, singers and instrumentalists in church, contest and concerts.

Currently, I am pursuing a Doctorate in Choral Music at Arizona State University.

Having recently relocated from Minnesota, I would love to establish a studio here where I can share my expertise and passion for music with students. My approach is that music should be fun and satisfying. I want students to have the enjoyment of accomplishing great things, and build on their natural abilities and love of music. I look forward to meeting you, and seeing where your musical talents can take you!

*** Lesson Details ***
Each voice lesson begins with warming up: movement:, stretches, breathing, and relaxation while focusing on good posture. Following that we continue warming up the voice with appropriate vocal exercises. If desired, we can spend time sight singing (reading music). Then we will turn to your chosen piece(s) of music. You could bring in a song or aria of your interest, or I could suggest pieces that I feel suit your voice. Some areas that I like to focus on in are relaxation, posture, breathing, support, use of registers, placement, growing your voice in size and range, intonation (pitch), tone color, clarity and consistency. My ultimate goal is to help students sing with musicality and expressiveness.

For piano, we may begin by working on things like hand position, posture, relaxation of the body and then exercises, including scales and chords. We may also incorporate music theory.
After a warm-up, we will focus on chosen music. I like to use music literature that is appropriate to the student's level, which gives enjoyment, and also increases breadth of knowledge and expertise. For beginning students, there are many good series available that I like to use, such as Bastian or Alfred.

Its very important that students feel comfortable in their lessons. I am sensitive, flexible and open to individual likes and dislikes, and any thoughts or concerns you have. These are your lessons and I am committed to helping you get the most out of them!

Subjects Taught

Acting, Broadway Singing, Flute, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing

About Me

I grew up with music surrounding me. Both my parents play many instruments and they have passed that love on to me and my brothers. I started singing as a toddler and piano and flute came soon after. I love to teach, am patient and help my students to achieve their best. I create an environment for my students to feel safe expressing themselves, making mistakes,laughing and honing their musical language.

In my voice lessons I teach solid technique focusing on bringing out the beauty of each individual's voice giving them the tools to be able to sing musically. I've been told by students that they have learned more from me in 2 lessons then they have working with prior teachers for years.

I earned my BM in Vocal Performance from the distinguished Eastman School of Music. I have earned the Bravo!Scholar and Howard Hanson award as well as first place in the Schubert Club vocal competition. I continue my studies with acclaimed Mezzo-soprano Gail Dubinbaum in Phoenix and I am a member of National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS).

I've sung all over the united states as well as in Germany and Italy. I performed the role of Frasquita in Phoenix Opera's production of Carmen as well as La Fata Azzurra in "La Bella Dormente nel Bosco" and as Sister Constance in "Dialogues des Carmelites" of which I was acclaimed by reviewers to have "revealed a luminous voice, and sang with ease and spontaneity." I have been a soloist with the St Paul Chamber Orchestra as well as with the Eastman Collegium. This past December I was a featured soloist with the Phoenix Symphony and returned to the Phoenix Opera to perform The Queen of the Night in The Magic Flute as well as worked with the Ohio Light Opera performing the lead roles of Hannah Glawari in "The Merry Widow" and Madame Pompadour in "Madame Pompadour."

I'm equally comfortable with musical theater and have played leading roles in many productions including Marian in "The Music Man," Laurie in Oklahoma, Margy in "State Fair," Rapunzel in "Into the Woods," and Mrs. Gardiner in the premier production of "Pride and Prejudice."

My students have advanced in the Classical Singer National Competition, Arizona Fiesta Chorus Competition, Hot Pipes Competition, and have been accepted to and attended summer programs at distinguished music schools including Westminster College and Eastman School of Music. They also perform with local theaters including Copperstar Theater, Moezart Productions, EVCT and more.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every vocal student will have different talents and struggles and will be at different levels so, I structure my lessons for the individual. However, with every student I focus on teaching correct breathing and healthy vocal use to enhance the natural beauty of the voice.

Overall I have a laid back, humorous personality. I work to help the student achieve their goals whether its to be able to sing better in the shower or to become a professional musician. I offer 2 recitals per year to perform at and often form duets/trio's out of my students. I also offer studio classes for my singers who desire to have more performing experience with immediate encouraging feedback and for my more advanced singers I offer Master classes with guest artists to perform at and attend.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room w/ piano, books, mirror, and seating for parents. Parents can observe if the student is comfortable with that but, I do not allow parents to comment on the student's singing of performance during the lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If they are a voice student they will need a piano, and they will need to purchase their own music and if possible purchase a recording device to record lessons and technique exercises. If they are a flute student, they will need to provide the music, and the instrument. If they are a piano student, obviously they would need a piano and would provide their own music based on my suggestion.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Opera, Operetta, Broadway, and jazz. I also teach pop, rock and country. On the piano and flute I teach classical and contemporary. I do not teach jazz piano or flute.

Singing is Alive in Phoenix

By Dana B. - Phoenix Voice Teacher

I have been teaching singing lessons in Phoenix for TakeLessons since February 2010. In that time, I have been fortunate to work with a variety of students who have come to take singing lessons with several goals and aspirations in mind. My youngest student is seven years old and my oldest student is in her early thirties. I have had the opportunity to serve as a vocal coach for a young lady in the Miss Arizona and Miss America Pageant. TakeLessons is a flexible company to work with because they give students the opportunity to travel to the teacher’s studio or have the teacher travel to your home for lessons.

The city of Phoenix offers a lively music scene, ranging from traveling artists and groups performing concerts in downtown Phoenix to ...
