Singing is my specialty--especially, singing in a relaxed, body-conscious, creative/heartfelt way. Are you longing to develop your own unique voice, and to share it with the world? To sing with more relaxation and freedom? To connect with audiences and to move them emotionally? Then, you've come to the right place.

About Jennifer
I am a professional singer-songwriter and have been teaching lessons fulltime for the last 12 years. I teach students of all ages and levels of experience. My current range of students include: kids with learning/developmental disabilities, teenagers who have starred in school musicals, and performing adult singer-songwriters. Whatever your background or desire, I can help you to cultivate your unique musical potential, and to strengthen your creative voice.

As a professional vocalist and pianist, I have worked freelance, in a variety of settings, over the years--including solo, in wedding bands, small jazz and rock/pop groups and with big bands. I have been singing with the Mood Swings Big Band for 6+ years. During that time, we have performed at the White House, the Chamber of Commerce and in Kennebunkport, Maine (at the Bush e
state).

I also have an extensive professional and personal background in meditation (10 years), astrology (5 years) and healing (particularly Reiki, 4 years). I am very interested in the intersection between a healing/mindfulness-awareness approach and singing/playing piano.

I read previous reviews which assisted me in selecting Jen. After connecting with her I realized she had the perfect location (less than 10 mins from my house in Catonsville) and professional patience with my twin 14 yr old sons. They had a little experience before the lessons with Jen, but after only a few lessons, their piano/keyboard playing was much sharper than before. She has a beautiful voice and the boys always felt really positive after each lesson. They were more eager to practice at home to demonstrate the skills she taught them previously. Also, Jen hand writes lessons for the boys, which helped them better understand sheet music. She's a Gem. Well worth the investment!

Jennifer teaches my 6 yr old daughter piano lessons. Jennifer is very knowledgeable. She is very patient with my daughter and helps her learn by visualizing the keys and their notes as well as giving her visual notes in a notebook that she can take home to work on. I recommend Jennifer as a knowledgeable and courteous teacher.

Alignment is the basis a great technique. Each person is different, and knowing how to help them release unwanted tension is critical.

The vocal folds are the core of the sound, and must be given the utmost care and consideration. Proper hydration is essential. They are also muscles, that need strengthening exercises and time for them to change. This will improve your vocal endurance and range. As a highly trained voice teacher, I can hear if the vocal folds are behaving in a healthy and efficient manner. It is essential that your teacher understand how to care for these delicate components of the human voice.

Vocal resonance is how opera singers are heard without amplification. It can be enhanced through awareness and coordination of the various portions of the vocal tract. There are two main components that help magnify the sound. The pharynx, also known as the throat, and the soft palate. Having an open throat and lift soft palate not only help your boost the ...

About Rachelle
I love sharing the knowledge and techniques I've learned through years of training and performing. Lessons are so much more than just learning the notes. Everyone has a unique perspective and way to express their feelings through music. I help my students embrace their artistry while learning. I have extensive training in music and vocal pedagogy that gives me the ability to teach both voice and piano. I hold a Masters in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy from the University of North Texas.

Whether you want to have more confidence singing karaoke or play Beethoven. I can help you reach those goals. We will build a repertoire that is appropriate for your age and ability. Over time you will gain greater control, endurance, and confidence.

VOICE LESSONS
*The vocal folds are the core of the sound, and must be given the utmost care a
nd consideration. Proper hydration is essential. They are also muscles that need strengthening exercises and time for them to change. This will improve your vocal endurance and range. As a highly trained voice teacher, I can hear if the vocal folds are behaving in a healthy and efficient manner.

* Vocal resonance is how opera singers are heard without amplification. It can be enhanced through awareness and coordination of the various portions of the vocal tract. Using this natural resonance will make singing in any style more comfortable.

*The most important part of the singing is emotion. Anyone can sing words, but if you don't know what they mean or how to express them they become nothing but white noise.

*Selecting the perfect songs for your age, voice type, skill level, and interest is really important. I will help guide you in finding the right choices for you.

PIANO LESSONS
*Alignment is the basis a great technique. Each person is different, and knowing how to help them release unwanted tension is critical.

*Building hand coordination is essential to playing piano. A variety of agility and strengthening exercises will help you gain greater control and comfort in playing.

*Articulation and phrasing is how pianists convey emotion. By Understanding the different colors available, a performer can create a dynamic and moving experience.

*Selecting songs for your skill level and interest is important. Playing music you love will make your experience more enjoyable.

About Kait K.

Salt Lake City, UT

View Full Profile

My mission is to help students reach their fullest potential as singers and to build their confidence in the process. Lessons focus on each student as an individual and can encompass anything from vocal technique and song repertoire to audition coaching and even recording sessions to help the students with a project or to help them simply hear the subtleties in their voice more clearly as they train and grow.

Vocal Technique covered includes:

Range Building, Tone & Color, Vocal and Musical Dynamics, Diction, Releasing the Jaw, Opening Up the Sound, Body Conditioning For Singers and finally, Breath Support*

*I teach breath support in a way most teachers do not. I help students gain strong abdominal muscles and teach them how to use them to sing with more power and control. Rather than releasing the belly (as most teachers recommend) I show students how to breathe into their backs and use all three lobes of the lungs (upper, middle, lower). This allows them to keep the abs ...

About Kait
Kait K. has been teaching singers of all ages and abilities since 1997. She has taught in public schools, colleges and universities and privately in San Diego & Los Angeles, CA and Salt Lake City, UT. She has owned and operated The Performer Studio (a production company for high quality vocal productions) since 1997 and is the director of Salt Lake Singers Academy.

As a teacher, Kait's focus with each student is to help them understand both the anatomy and health of their vocal instrument and to help them tap into their very best sound in an engaging and fun way.

Kait: "Every singer has stumbling blocks. It is my passion to help them identify those, understand them and then...shatter them. Singers are complex people with complex instruments, and no matter what our expertise level, the DESIRE to sing is something to be protected an
d nurtured. I value honesty, discipline and detail work in the singing studio. I find those three things, meshed always with a genuine sense of FUN, are the keys to helping singers unlock and develop what makes them unique artists with something to say."

Professionally as a singer, Kait has headlined her own blues band, sung in several cover bands and also performed as a featured lead vocalist alongside John Lee Hooker Jr. (Blues Grammy artist nominee) on his western tour of the U.S. Kait was the lead singer and co-songwriter for the band Light Vizion and co-produced the band's debut album "Looking For An Angel" and can be heard as the solo vocalist on the album "True North" by Tristan Moore. She is currently a freelance vocalist in Salt Lake City, Utah. She has sung lead and solo in a large variety of venues, including Capitol Theatre, Abravanel Hall, Rose Wagner (Jeanne Wagner Stage) and several local clubs and restaurants as well as festivals and outdoor concerts including the annual Scarecrow Festival and the Brown Bag Concert Series and Furry Fiesta Fundraiser! While in Los Angeles, Kait performed in numerous clubs and blues music venues, including The Brown Derby, The Blue Cafe and BB Kings in Hollywood. She has also worked as a professional singer for several years in the Los Angeles Music Industry where she performed in several bands and worked as an in demand "session" singer (someone people hire to come in and quickly record vocals for various professional and experimental projects).

Kait's education as a singing performer includes a B.F.A. from the Actor Training Program at the University of Utah, an M.F.A. in Musical Theatre Performance from San Diego State University plus 5 years post-grad study in Los Angeles training in voice with world master voice teacher, Edward Sayegh.

In 2004 Kait returned to her roots in Salt Lake City, UT to continue both her singing and teaching career. She continues to write, arrange and record as a freelance singer, and has appeared as the featured vocalist with groups like Children's Dance Theatre and Ririe-Woodbury as well as other local blues and rock bands.

Kait: "My goal with each student is to help them to become the very best they can be as singing performers. But in addition, I aim to lift their spirit during the time they spend here, so that when they leave for the day, after the work they've done, they feel better, more inspired, more empowered and more confident and driven than they did when they arrived at my door. Teaching and watching my students evolve as both artists and people is thrilling! I have the honor of watching them find themselves through music while they build truly lifelong friendships with the performing peers they meet in the classes and performances they participate in here...they end up finding some of their 'kindred spirits' in life here, and that is something that is priceless as an artist."

About Giorgia G.

Longmont, CO

My lessons are a platform for each student to become the best singer they can be, according to their own definition of success. We will sing any genre you love, and work on the quality of your sound and on the authenticity of your interpretation. You will learn voice technique, diction (if language different than English) as well as stage presence, and how to engage your audience to the fullest. Working with me, you can always expect to have a relaxing and fun self-discovery time.

About Giorgia
I started my solo and backup singer career at the age of 12, working for RG Recording Studio (Italy). When I was 15 I founded a children's choir (ages 5 to 15) called Voci di Pace. I trained them as soloists and as an ensemble, as well as conducted them through the professional recording of dozens of CDs. I also trained and conducted students for the recording of highschool musicals.

I began my conservatory bachelor degree training in cello and chamber music in 1997, and graduated 2010. Since then, I have studied singing technique with pop star Silvia Mezzanotte and with opera singers Chiara Fiorani and Noa Frenkel.

I love to teach singing, singing in Italian and Italian diction to students of all ages and backgrounds who are ready to explore their own souls and bodies and to learn how to be themselves through sound and music.

Giorgia was my first teacher in singing when I was just 8 years old. Since then she has always been a model for me: her talent, her competence, her determination really impressed me. She is able to teach very delicate and complexed topics with genuine irony letting your hair down. I strongly recomend her as a teacher, and I will always thank her for letting me able to apreciate at best music.

I was very shy with my voice and Giorgia was the very first person to be able to make me sing in front of another person. She takes you through the basics and explains very constructively how things work. I can recommend her to anyone who is wanting to discover their voice!

With thirty-five years experience as a pro singer/stage director and vocal coach, I bring extensive international experience to my lessons. Having worked with singers at all levels of development, I will introduce you to vocal technique structured for where you are right now. I coach in multiple genres: Jazz -- determining keys, understanding charts and leadsheets, Broadway -- belt, mix and legit, Blues, and for classical singers, multiple languages. I work extensively with actors on both speaking and singing voice and with voice-over and media voices.

As a stage director, I offer stage and performance etiquette, interpretation and how to prepare for auditions and recording sessions. If you are a community singer and just getting started, I love teaching the basics and will help you build the confidence you need!

Lessons are in a double studio with high ceilings, great acoustics and both a grand piano and electronic.

About Diane
You will never regret having voice lessons with a true professional. I've performed and taught across the US, Europe, and Australia. As a singer/stage director I've produced over fifty cabaret shows, musicals and operas. As a recording artist, I've released the CDs: "Music in Flight," endorsed by Doctors Without Borders and "Rosas de Pulpa," a digital album of Argentine music, which was recently nominated Classical Album of the Year by "Just Plain Folks." With years of university and community teaching experience, I am a member of National Association of Teachers of Singing, a vetting organization for teachers, which provides competition platforms for young singers. I have been awarded grants by the Alabama Council for the Arts and the Lowder Foundation. Though still an active performer in jazz and other genres, I love teaching and am c
ommitted to offering my students what music can do for our world. I am Diane M. and a Google search of my name will connect you to tracks, videos and much more history about my varied and wonderful life in the Arts! NOTE: There are performance opportunities available through study in my private studio. Ask me about them!

It is a pleasure to provide a recommendation for Diane McNaron and her studio. My daughter has been taking private lessons for more than three years and we have been exceptionally pleased with the results. Ms. McNaron’s extensive background and experience in a wide variety of musical genres allows her to customize lessons around the student’s vocal strengths and interests rather than force a cookie cutter approach. Ms. McNaron has nurtured her talent in a positive, professional manner and I highly recommend her for those looking to improve, learn, or simply polish their current vocal skill set. You will not be disappointed.

Redding, CT

A typical Miss Kirk music lesson is unique because it includes movement, acting, drama, music theory, stage presence practice, singing and fun! I tailor each lesson specifically to the student. When students feel a sense of joy and excitement then learning and expertise follow.

As a public school music teacher, I believe in educating the student as a whole learner. I believe music education helps us learn not only what can be seen, such as music notation, but also what can only be felt. I believe music and the arts connect us to one another and our deepest, truest selves. I believe in music education because it helps the student recognize beauty in the world. I believe music has the power to help and heal oneself at any age. I teach music so that the world we live in becomes a more peaceful and loving place for us to live in solidarity with one another. Let me help you in this journey!

About Ashley
I hold a Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance from The University of Connecticut and a CT Teaching Certification in grades Pre K-12 in all concentrations of music education from Central Connecticut State University.

While at UConn I studied such operatic roles as Yum-Yum in Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Mikado, Susanna in The Marriage of Figaro by Mozart and as a Nymph in Henry Purcell’s The Fairy Queen. I also premiered and recorded original music in Quito, Ecuador with an early music ensemble called Collegium Musicum. During her time at UConn, I was an active member of the UConn Opera Outreach program, which aimed to bring the love of opera into the public school music classroom. I have performed at The Bushnell, Lincoln Center and the Candlelight Processional at Disneyworld. I have also been featured as a soloist with First Church
Congregational in West Hartford, CT.

I pride myself in having taught elementary choral/general music teacher in both rural and urban public school districts throughout the state of Connecticut. I currently teach general/vocal music to students in grades Pre K-5. I was also a grant recipient to begin a ukulele program at my school.

I began her private teaching career in 2011 teaching students of all ages ranging from 6 to 73.

It is important to first dissect the emotion and message in a song by examining the lyrics. Then one must be mentally and physically prepared to project that emotion or message through vocal variety. For whatever style of song you like to sing, there are many ways to express those emotions with your unique voice. If you would like, we may also sing in other languages (Japanese, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Spanish).

About Natsumi
I am a EL (English Language) Teacher Assistant serving various middle schools and elementary schools at Peninsula School District. I speak Japanese(日本語)and English. While I am not teaching, my interest is singing (symphonic metal, alternative, j-rock), and learning languages (Swedish/svenska, Norwegian/norsk, Danish/dansk, and Spanish/español).
Although I would like to think that I have all the answers, I would also like to learn something new from the students as well. I look forward to working with everyone!
