Victoria V.

Minneapolis, MN

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 Suz
uki 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 challenges of singing because I face them professionally everyday. I find this helps to be sympathetic to a student and their needs. Due to my professional experience, I understand how much students can grow with patience and guidance.

I received a Bachelor's degree from the State University of New York College at Fredonia and my Masters from the prestigious Manhattan School of Music. I received strong training in vocal pedagogy, diction/language, and overall musicianship. These are lessons I love to share.

I have taught students at one of the top music camps in the country and have had private students for about six years. I taught everything from rock music to opera and I believe that all singing technique comes from the same principles.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are professional and goal oriented, yet fun and relaxed. At the beginning of every lesson I try to assess where you are that day and work from there. The tasks and exercises we perform in each lesson are all leading to your bigger goals. You will leave every lesson with assignments for the following week to help you progress. For younger students, I also try to take some time to focus on musicianship as this can be very helpful in the initial stages of learning any instrument. After a few months of lessons, you will have a clearer understanding of how your body works in singing, specifically breath and posture. We will focus on creating a relaxed, even sound that appears effortless to others.

*** Studio Equipment ***
sound proof practice rooms, mirror, piano, seating for parents

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.

Shae K.

Saint Paul, MN

About Shae

I am an music instructor with 23 years of experience. I have a Bachelor's degree in Sacred Music with a major in Voice. I have been playing piano for 33 years with having been an accompanist for choirs and soloists and a pianist at weddings and churches. I am a believer that anyone can learn piano and improve their vocal abilities! I also know that a knowledge of music and music theory go together to improve one's learning ability in any area of his/her life. The student and I would work together. I don't just teach the "how to", I help and encourage taking time at the lesson to learn an
d understand the music. I am a huge advocate of building the student's skills during the lesson time and using the rest of the week on their own to continue to review the skills they have already acquired. I look forward to being your teacher! We will have fun learning!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a friendly person and like to put everyone at ease. I try to adapt to each student's learning style. As I have hinted at in my bio, I teach the skills and then we work together on these skills during the lesson. The idea is for the knowledge and skills to come together before the student tries on their own. The student actually learns quicker this way and we repeat lessons much less. The student also desires to learn when they see those goals being attained at a quicker pace. I usually average one lesson book every 2-3 months, depending on the student.

*** Specialties ***
I have taught every method available for piano and have taught both Opera and regular singing methods.

Mark is an excellent voice coach! He has been very helpful in teaching me breathing techniques, voice health, understanding my vocal range and how to improve my range. He has made me feel more confident in my abilities and I am looking forward to future lessons.

Thanks Mark!

I couldn't of picked a better voice instructor!

I've always been a confident songwriter but when it came to singing I struggled; especially with pitch. Thats when I started my lessons with Mark and right away knew he was the right instructor. Instead of making me follow some completely pre-scripted lesson plan, Mark helped me correct my pitch and overall singing while practicing songs I had written myself.

I've been working with him for almost two years now and I've noticed significant improvements across the board and have gained so much more confidence in my singing abilities. Enough that I actually just finished recording a 13-track album of songs all written and sung by me. I can't thank Mark enough for helping me follow my dreams and for continuing to help me grow as a singer.

You are doing a great job with Robbie. He is still having a difficult time remembering the chords and he refuses to practice at home because of this. If you could give him one song to remember to practice at home that may help. He would like to practice at home but he gets so frustrated because of his memory with this. Robbie also enjoys you.

Josephine is just the violin teacher I was looking for!

Every lesson includes scales and etudes along with a couple of songs to work on. Her teaching is attentive to detail and well-rounded (spot-on technique, music reading, easily-digestible theory, etc.), while still really fostering enjoyment in playing and slow but steady growth. Whether you’re looking for classical violin, fiddling, or bluegrass, Josie will help you learn whatever you want to learn!

I definitely recommend a longer class time if you can do it - a few extra run-throughs of each song and scale make a big difference in your muscle memory and ability to practice efficiently on your own.

Of the few violin teachers I've had in my sporadic years of playing violin, Josie has inspired me to play the most, and I know I will continue taking lessons with her for as long as I can. Highly recommended!

Josephine teaches violin to my 8 year old son Kanishk, continuing for over 7 months. She is great with my son and very patient with him. She is very professional and guides my son to do his best. My son is doing great and we have increased the session from 1 to twice weekly.

She has a very positive attitude towards my son and always encourages him with good feedback.

Aaron T.

Saint Paul, MN

About Aaron

I am extremely passionate about music, and even more so passionate about helping others. To combine the two through providing musical instruction is something I have always enjoyed doing.

I have been playing guitar and drums for over a decade and teaching for about half of that time. I have a Bachelor of Music in Contemporary, Urban, and Pop Music with guitar as my primary instrument and drums as my secondary. I obtained my degree from Columbia College Chicago. While in school, I also spent much of my time studying songwriting and music production. I have played and toured with many differe
nt bands with music from a variety of styles and genres, and have spent vast amounts of time in the studio recording and producing myself and various other artists.

In terms of teaching lessons, I realize that all students have individual ways of learning and have their own goals in mind in relation to their musical ability. I desire to provide lessons that allow students to reach those goals in the most enjoyable and effective way possible.

What Are the Best Songs to Sing to Show Off Your Vocal Range?
Many singing teachers agree that one of the most alarming things today is tuning in to television talent competitions and seeing nine-year-olds singing opera. Not only are the arias generally age-inappropriate, but they make vocal demands on the singer that often requires a training period longer than the child has been alive! Less publicly, but equally common, are singers who wrong-foot themselves with inappropriate repertoire at local singing competitions and music festivals. They might pick
