Overview

Become the masterful Singer that you really ARE! Learn to bring out the natural beauty and power of your Voice, and to match your own unique personality and vocal qualities to complementing repertoire in order to show your voice and talents in their best light. We'll develop the repertoire that fits YOU. You'll learn how the Voice works and where it really comes from, and probably be amazed at the almost immediate widening of your vocal range.

Trained by one of the Metropolitan Opera’s most beloved Voice Coaches, Vanessa brings to the world of music a wonderfully varied Performing and Teaching career ranging from Opera to Broadway. She holds a BA degree in Music Performance from the School of Fine and Applied Arts of Boston University, and is an award winning Poet. Vanessa has produced, hosted, sung, and broadcast over 2,500 television programs, concertized and spoken in the US and abroad, recorded nine albums in various languages, co-authored an Early Childhood Education book which included training in the use of music for the young, authored three poetry books and accompanying cd's, and teaches Voice to her private and group students.

*** Lesson Details ***
The atmosphere is relaxed in our comfortable professional studio. We work hard, and enjoy the journey as we develop your voice and repertoire with a focus on whatever style of singing you choose. It won't be long until you will see that songs that were previously too high or too low are now comfortably within your grasp. And, you will be able to sing for longer periods of time without getting tired or injuring your voice. You might also want the experience of practicing stage presence, working with trax, learning how to relate to an audience, and learning microphone technique, all of which will add to the professionalism of your most excellent and enjoyable career.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music studio room w/ piano and seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in finding the student's unique voice, and helping them to understand its natural operation in order to set it free to be used in any style they choose to sing. The Italian Bel Canto method describes the basic singing technique, and is the foundation from which a healthy and versatile voice can be developed. My upcoming book, "All God's Chillun' Got A Voice" How To Find It, and Release It As A Creative Tool”, discusses both the technical and esoteric sides of the singing voice, its operation and purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Superior Teacher, Outstanding Vocal/Music Lessons Vanessa is an exceptional vocal instructor with an amazing ability to connect with my daughter Cameron and elevate her skill level as a vocalist. Her commitment to supporting the needs and requests from the student is fantastic and I appreciate her dedication to the Arts and her ability to communicate the language of music with such vigor and clarity. Thank you so much Vanessa! March 6, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent teaching style! Vanessa has incredible wisdom for the VOICE! She has so much to offer in the way of teaching both the knowledge and the physical aspects of speaking and singing. She is so encouraging and upbeat. A few sessions we laughed and laughed. The first time I felt the strong vibration of my own voice in my head (like a bell vibrating and ringing) I laughed so hard! It tickled and I had never felt anything like it before! It is cool! She is helping me heal and recover my voice and I am so very grateful! I was in the middle of doing a voice acting job and just the other day my customer said she loved it because the final record was confident and had more pep than the previous records. I am so happy about that! My voice acting school instructor told me I would benefit from singing lessons. I knew I needed to take them if anyone was going to take my business skills seriously. I was right and so happy to have found Vanessa for the job!!! I will be going back to Vanessa for more classes early next year for the continuing of my progress! She is an excellent teacher and someone I love to have as my mentor and guide in the voice industry! Thank you all so much!!! November 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Thank you, Vanessa Pace! THANK YOU, VANESSA! A year ago when I was shopping for a voice teacher, Take Lessons provided a wide selection of viable options. As a senior adult, I was feeling a need to clarify my "Call" in life, and to return to some of the personal strengths that I hope to continue using in the last 1/3 of my life. In my profile I indicted I was looking to maintain the voice that has been a part of every aspect of my life from theatre to singing, to preaching, to creating radio spots. When I mentioned that goal to Vanessa in our first meeting she countered: “We won’t just maintain it, we’ll restore it!” What a confidence booster that was! Although my life work mostly involves speaking, I also have a love of singing—something I have participated in one way or another for the last 50 years. I wanted to overcome the “old lady” vibrato syndrome if possible and to be able to sing without concern that those within earshot would shudder. In addition, I was looking for certain attributes in a teacher: • A person who is at my stage of life or beyond. • A person who is knowledgeable in both singing and speech. • A person with a personal teaching style that is positive and encouraging. ENTER VANESSA PACE! Vanessa is confident and knowledgeable. In addition, she has customized my learning program to suit my current objectives, which have changed from one week to the next depending upon my professional assignments from work and my personal creative pursuits. In this year Vanessa brought me to a point of “breaking through” inhibitions and moving beyond what I thought I’d be able to do. Her constant use of cues to put me on track with the use of my voice has been invaluable! She compared letting sound pass through the vocal cords (without strain) in the same way breath becomes music through a clarinet. Using words like “Pull up your spine—you’re two inches taller!”; and reminders to draw on the strength of (underused) larger muscles to support the efforts of diaphragm have been helpful in numerous practical matters of everyday life. Vanessa is inspiring in that she is a life-long learner and passionate about things to the degree that she invests in them with intelligent research, attention to science, and a spiritual passion that drives her to draw out the best in her students in similar fashion. If you are looking for a voice teacher, Vanessa will work with you where you are--and help you move toward the goal of where you are hoping to be. I am thanking God this Thanksgiving Season for Vanessa Pace. ~ Ann Thomas November 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely worth the time and the fees. Vanessa is an excellent teacher. She is very knowledgeable and experienced in her field, and does a wonderful job passing that on. My son has improved incredibly in a short time. She is also a great confidence builder, she makes my son feel that he can learn to sing any song he chooses and sing it well. She is also very personable and easy to work with. We are both very glad we chose her for lessons. May 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cameron is enjoying the lessons with Vanessa and has learned new skills and techniques in the two lessons she has taken. Vanessa is doing a great job providing useful instruction and has established a good teacher-student experience with Cameron. May 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful, comprehensive teaching! Although I have only been with her a few weeks, Vanessa has really opened my eyes (and my throat :) to excellent singing. Not only is she a pro when it comes to teaching good technique, she's also very attuned to singing as a physical, mental, and spiritual undertaking. Oh, we also have fun and laugh during every lesson. I can't wait to learn more! January 22, 2012
