I can teach you to sing many styles, all with using proper vocal technique.

About Vanessa
As a vocal teacher I focus on the correct method to singing that helps keep your voice beautiful and healthy.
I earned my bachelors degree in music education with an emphasis in vocals. I learned music appreciation, theory, history, choral singing and classical voice training.
I love music and cannot picture life without it. Music is an expression of life! I also love to teach music to others as I feel I'm passing on a great gift.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher I fall somewhere in between strict and laid back. For instance, if you don't practice I won't scold you, but I will remind you that you can only be as good as you work to be. If you don't want to put in the effort you will waste your time and money, as well as not receive the results that you were desiring.
Our lessons will consist of many vocal exercises, go
od posture, and breathing techniques. One rule that I have is that I don't move you on to another song until you have successfully learned all you can from the first one you try. There is no point in learning another song when you have only learned the first one at a mediocre level.
If you are serious about becoming a better singer/musician you will enjoy our lessons.
I encourage my students to strive for excellence and will do all I can to draw that out of you.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide the tools to learn theory, songs to choose from and I do have my own portable keyboard. Students would need to have a tape or digital recorder to record their lessons and a positive attitude.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical voice, and vocal training, (learning how to use your voice properly).

Vanessa deserves more than I could describe:
She is such a sweet teacher who feels easy to teach you at the right level. With great understanding, warm passion, and sufficient knowledge, she’s just made me more and more confident!
I enjoyed every lesson she gave. Time went by without knowing since I was absolutely attracted by her every instruction and demonstration! I’m probably the oldest student, over 70, a total beginner,. Yet, this is no problem to her at all!
Vanessa makes me think of the popular saying: “The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires. “
Dear teacher Vanessa has certainly inspired me a great deal!

Let's sing whatever you like: from pop songs, to Broadway, to art songs or opera with an emphasis on good vocal technique.
30 minute lessons are ONLY for students ages 8 and younger.
Adults are encouraged to choose 60 minute lessons.

About Julie
I am passionate about Music and Music Education. It's rewarding for me to watch my students develop in their musical skill and enjoy making music more and more. My students range from the very young (5 years old) to school age children, to teens, and adults. My students benefit from my expertise in teaching Vocal and Piano music, my knowledge of Music Theory, and my encouraging teaching style. I have been involved in making music since I was a young child, and I have been teaching private students since I was a Music major at the University of Florida in 1982 when a fellow college student asked me to teach her voice lessons. I have a Music Education degree from the University of Florida; my major instrument was Voice, my minor was Piano. I taught as a public school music educator in Florida, California, and Tennessee between the years
of 1983 to 1997. I taught private students after school in my classroom while I was a public school teacher, and from my home since 1997. My post-graduate continuing professional education includes Tennessee Arts Academy at Belmont University, Kodaly Pedagogy and Solfege Level 1 (vocal teaching techniques, do-re-mi, ear training), Orff-Schulwerk Music for Children Level 1 certification, Yamaha M.I.E. (Music In Education) Piano Lab certification. My professionalism and expertise are at your service. I will work together with you to insure an enjoyable and informative learning experience.

*** Lesson Details ***
A typical lesson in my studio would begin with a brief question/answer time with the student to learn how their week has gone, and how their music practice is progressing.

For PIANO LESSONS we begin with Technique including scales and dexterity exercises, then we play from the Lesson book and a Recital selection. I typically let the student play through the pieces they have prepared without interruption, then I call attention to corrections that need to be made, I demonstrate the correction, and then ask the student to play the piece again. After that we go over the Theory assignments, and do Ear Training exercises. I am comfortable teaching from a variety of different methods courses. The methods course is chosen according to the student's interest. I never require a piano student to continue using books that are not inspiring. There so many methods courses available, that a student may always be able to have methods books they LOVE.

In my SINGING LESSONS we also begin with a recap of the student's week. Then we continue with Warm Up exercises to prepare the student's voice for the lesson. Then we study Sight Singing and Solfege Singing (do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-ti-do) to increase the student's listening skills. After that the student sings their selections. Like I do in Piano lessons, I listen to the pieces they have prepared without interruption, then I call attention to corrections that need to be made, I demonstrate the correction, and then ask the student to sing the piece again. I am comfortable teaching many styles of vocal music including classical, Broadway, pop, rock, and Christian.

For MUSIC THEORY lessons, the study material is chosen according to the student's interest and age. Topics include notation, chord structure, chord progression, melodic structure, and harmony. I also incorporate Music Listening in the Music Theory lesson in order to learn from the masters in many styles of music. My Music Theory students will also have the opportunity to develop composition and songwriting skills if they desire.

My teaching style is structured and friendly, keeping the student's goals and interests at the forefront. I enjoy motivating students to reach their highest potential.
After 3 to 6 months in my studio my students will see improvement in their musical technique, ear training, music reading, notation, and knowledge. They will be preparing recital pieces for an upcoming performance. I provide three Studio Class performances (February, June, October) and one recital opportunity (December) a year. Most importantly, the student's love and appreciation of music will be growing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
PIANO lessons in Living Room: piano near front entryway, couch, loveseat, over-sized chair, dining room table, open space, end table with chair, parents may sit in on lesson.

SINGING lessons in Recording Studio: keyboard, recording equipment, desk, 2 chairs, music stand, microphone, private room. Parents may wait in adjacent rec room or sit in on lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson books, the students should provide their instrument.

I do have a mobile keyboard to bring for SINGING lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Kodaly Pedagogy and Solfege Level 1

Orff-Schulwerk Music for Children Level 1 certification

Julie is the best piano instructor my boys have had. Her theory based teaching has them learning pieces in record time - and her approach to theory isn't boring. They can now hear a song on the radio, recognize the chords and improvise on their own. She is engaging, encouraging and willing to explore the type of music they enjoy. She adapts her instruction methods based on individual personalities. Your child will not just learn to play piano, they will learn to appreciate music, composers and acquire knowledge that will assist in any instrument they play.

Julie is wonderful! I'm an adult student who has been working with her for about a year. I took voice lessons from childhood through college, then life took over and I pretty much stopped singing. When I decided I wanted to get back into it again, I contacted Julie. I was nervous, but she put me at ease right away. This past year working with her has been so much fun. She helped me prepare for choral auditions, and I got accepted to sing with the Vanderbilt Community Chorus. We pick the repertoire together, so I'm never working on something I'm not interested in. She has helped me master my breathing technique and discover a richer and freer tone. I highly recommend her!

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 am a firm believer that no two people are alike and therefore no two people will learn the same or benefit from the same teaching style.

I work to tailor each lesson around the goals, abilities, and learning styles of each individual student.

I'm a personal trainer - for your voice! My trainings incorporate modern twists on the most effective techniques from the Swedish-Italian school of singing. I use this classical technique as the foundation for compelling vocals in commercial styles, such as pop, soul, and rock. You will learn how to use your body and breath together to produce powerful and beautiful sound!
Your lessons are handcrafted - warmups, exercises, and all - to wherever you are in your vocal journey. Through each lesson, you will receive the tools you need to strengthen your voice and reach your goals. Let's have fun crafting a voice that stands out. Message me to get started, I can't wait to meet you!

About Moriah
I am a vocalist, songwriter, pianist, and recording artist, currently tracking the debut EP for my synth-pop project Steel Maggie. I graduated from Cal Poly Pomona with a Bachelors of Arts in Music, emphasis in Music Industry Studies, including voice and performance training. I have studied with/been coached by Martin Green from Citrus College, Dr. Susan Ali and Kendra Vuk from Cal Poly Pomona, and Aretha Scruggs.

I specialize in singing and teaching commercial styles, particularly pop, rock, and soul, but my approach to all commercial vocal practice is derived from classical traditions, mainly from the Swedish-Italian school of vocal production. No matter your skill level or background, you can be assured that you will receive a solid foundation in theory and technical skill through our lessons. Our sessions will take place in my
home studio.

While I primarily teach voice, I have had extensive piano training, so if you are interested in playing the piano while singing, I will gladly help you develop that skill. As an avid songwriter, I can guide you through the songwriting process, show you how to write melodies that fit your range and vocal timbre, and give you tips to improve your songs.

in addition to helping you strengthen your voice and reach your vocal goals, I will teach you how to maintain your progress and prime yourself for continuous growth. You will never feel judged or put down in your lessons with me. I make it my mission to foster an environment of encouragement, self-esteem, and fun. However, like a personal trainer, I will hold you accountable, because I want to see you excel and stand out in your singing endeavors. I want you to thrive as a vocalist. I look forward to our first session together!

Hands down Moriah is an excellent teacher. She really helped me to understand the difference between singing from my throat and from my core. She reminded me to enjoy the process of learning a new song and to embrace my originality. I’ve studied with her for awhile and she’s shown me how to push myself and appreciate all the work that I’ve done, learning to trust myself.

From classical, opera, Broadway, jazz, pop and more, I'm here to help you sing beautifully!
With about 5 years teaching experience, and over 10 years of study and performing experience, I am excited to share what I know to help you reach your vocal goals and expand your talents! I have a Bachelor of Musical Arts with a vocal emphasis from Brigham Young University-Idaho, where I studied Opera as a coloratura soprano, Jazz, participated in Broadway and Pop productions, and much more. In my class we will build upon a classical basis, some basic theory, and then delve in to the vocal styles that fit to your voice and interests! In a fun and safe learning environment, we will discover the best voice within you :)

About Stephanie
Originally from Dallas Texas, I moved to Rexburg and graduated with an BMA in Vocal Studies and Performance along with a minor in Business Management from BYU-Idaho in the Spring of 2016. With over 12 years of private voice lessons and several years of teaching, my love and knowledge for music has grown immensely.

I LOVE teaching voice. I have worked with kids, teens and young adults from ages 5-27, including students with special needs. Over the course of our classes together, students can expect to improve their vocal techniques and skills significantly. Their knowledge of music, key terminology and theory will also increase.

During my studies, I was featured in several solo performances and roles such as Filia in Carissimi's oratorio Historia di Jephte, Agatha in scenes from the opera Der Freischutz, featured soprano soloist in M
ozart's Vesperae Solennes De Confessore (including performance of Laudate Dominum with famous pianist Alpin Hong), and many others.

My goal as your teacher will be to use my knowledge and skills to enhance your vocal talents to their peak potential. We will conquer any vocal plateau's, stage fright and confusion you may have and become a true, strong performer. I look forward to working with you!
