Lesley F.

Bloomington, IN

About Lesley

Lesley is an accomplished classically trained operatic soprano at the beginning of her career. Lesley grew up all over the United States, attending high school in Tennessee where she was very active in high school theatre, playing roles like Aunt Eller in Oklahoma! and Glinda in The Wizard of Oz. Lesley currently sings operatic repertoire ranging from Mozart to Bernstein and loves new composers and exploring new music. Lesley has studied with numerous teachers, coaches, directors, and conductors who have shaped her as a musician, and hopes to be able to impart some of what she has learned. I
love to sing, and would love to help you explore singing as well.

I taught in the Atlanta area for four years, as well as New Jersey and Boston, MA. I enjoy working with my students to discover and develop their true voice and passion for music! After studying vocal pedagogy, vocal anatomy, Body Mapping, Alexander Technique, acting, dance, movement, and of course years of musical study, I have honed my skills as a teacher and wants to share them with you! Healthy breathing, physicality, phonation, and resonance techniques are crucial to any style of singing - opera, classical, broadway, or pop.

I hold a Master's degree in Opera Performance from The Boston Conservatory and a Bachelor's degree cum laude in Vocal Performance from Montclair State University. I attended the summer training programs at the Aspen Music Festival in Aspen, CO and the Seagle Music Colony in the Adirondacks. I have studied acting for over 6 years, and participated in straight theatre, as well as musical theatre. I have also coached with coaches from the Metropolitan Opera, Santa Fe Opera, Atlanta Opera, and many more!

My operatic roles include: Miss Jessel in Britten's, The Turn of the Screw, Mrs. Gobineau in Menotti's The Medium, The Female Chorus in Britten's The Rape of Lucretia, Clara Deluso in Pasatieri's Signor Deluso, Magda Sorel in Menotti's The Consul, Geraldine in Menotti's A Hand of Bridge, Ariadne in Strauss' Ariadne auf Naxos, Elisabetta in Donizetti's Maria Stuarda, Contessa d'Almaviva in Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro, Alice Ford in Verdi's Falstaff, Rosalinde in Die Fledermaus, and the First Lady in Die Zauberflote.

My theatre roles include: The Witch in Sondheim's Into the Woods, Aunt Eller in Rodgers & Hammerstein's Oklahoma!, Marion Hollander in Woody Allen's Don't Drink the Water, Glinda in The Wizard of Oz, Lucy in You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown, and Bobby's Mother in Gershwin's Crazy For You.

I am also featured on Albany Records release of Signor Deluso in the role I performed with the Opera Company of Brooklyn. I have performed the soprano solos in Verdi's Requiem, Faure's Requiem, and Gounod's St Cecilia Mass. Recently I worked closely with Stephen Schwartz - creator of the hit Broadway musical Wicked to create the starring role, Myra Foster, in his first opera - Seance on a Wet Afternoon.

In 2010 I was a Metropolitan Opera National Council Semi-Finalist. I claimed third place and the Wagner award in the Orpheus National Vocal Competition. I was also recognized for excellence with the Benefactor's Award in the Saritelli DiPanni Bel Canto Vocal Scholarship Fund as well as being a semi-finalist in the 2009 Jensen Competition. I enjoyed participating in NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing) for many years, placing every year in college, and taking home first prize senior year. In my junior year, I won my entire division for the Eastern Regional NATS competitions. I also participated in the All State choirs for 3 years in high school, taking first chair soprano 1 in my senior year, and being awarded a solo.

My students have received college scholarships, advanced in national competitions, and had successful auditions in both classical and broadway style singing. My students have performed in musicals, plays, choirs, and operas. I look forward to exploring your voice with you!

At first I had doubts about the potential effectiveness of online lessons. But I am unable to advance with local vocal teachers and decided to give it a shot.
Leslie's immediate insights into things I was doing wrong and things I could do better have already made an impact in both my approach and ability. I've taken vocal lessons off and on locally for nearly 20 years, and in the first lesson she suggested at least four things that I had never been told before, and all of them were spot-on.
Her flexibility in both schedule and simply working to help me achieve the things I want to achieve have been amazing.
I would highly recommend her coaching to anyone looking to improve!

My 10 year old son took piano lessons from Jennifer. Jennifer was a dedicated teacher and kept my son engaged by choosing songs that he enjoyed. She was energetic and always ended the lessons on an encouraging and upbeat note (no pun intended!). While she kept the lessons enjoyable, she made sure progress was made every week. Jennifer made piano lessons a positive experience for my son.

I took lessons from Jennifer for about three years, and I was very impressed! I was constantly making measurable improvement in all areas of my voice. Jennifer is very flexible with how you want a lesson to be run, and she encourages you to try out a wide variety of music genres. I loved going to her lessons every week; they were always positive, different, and fun!

Vincent B.

Bloomington, IN

About Vincent

Hello! My name is Vincent, and I am "that numbers guy" who wants to help you learn math! I have been (formally) tutoring college-age students and high school seniors for over a year through both my university and freelancing. I recently finished my undergraduate with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, and I love using my knowledge to help others. I would describe my teaching style as student-oriented. I like to be the one asking questions because it encourages students to develop a deep, adequate understanding required to explain the concepts back to me. Sometimes even I don't know the answ
er to a particularly difficult question, and I'm okay with admitting that! However working together with you, the student, to solve those problems will ultimately lead to better retention and comprehension.

I also have extensive experience helping students write essays at the college level. As a former tutor at the Indiana University Writing Tutorial Services, I have worked with countless amounts of students on papers ranging from classes like freshman English to graduate school applications.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

Ms. Megan was very helpful while I was preparing for All-State Auditions. I chose to continue lessons with her for the rest of the year and she helped we work on vocal technique, sight reading, and relaxation.

Strategies for Sight Singing
It may seem like instrumentalists have it much easier when it comes to sight reading music; by simply pressing a key or a string, the notes are immediately available to them without any additional thought, and all that’s left to them is to work out duration, dynamics, and tempo. Singers, on the other hand, don't have an instrument to rely on. Taking a song previously unknown to you and delivering a reasonably accurate performance the very first run-through isn’t a talent that everybody has.
