Speaking well all starts with proper breath coordination. As a voice major I understand the inner workings of how the voice works, and the proper way in which to speak without strain. Often people speak on a "vocal fry" this is the gargly sound that is very low in the speaking register, not only is this bad for your voice it also doesn't make a good impression to employers or during an interview process or public speaking event. I encourage even my voice students to recognize that habit and break it in order for their singing voices to grow.
If you are interested in improving your public speaking skills, or feel strain when you speak for extended periods of time, it is worth considering taking vocal lessons because without this proper technique severe damage can occur to your voice.
Lesson Details/Services: Singing/Audition and Resume Coach: Lessons begin with stretching, vocal warm ups, scales, and extensive breath work, as well as resolving any tensions that may be hindering your vocal production. I then through collaboration with the student, work on beginning repert

Every single lesson was tailored to my voice and my skill level. As I progressed, so did the lessons. Shelley prepared every lesson and conducted them all professionally. Over the course of a couple months, I went from not being able to carry a tune at all to singing comfortably and confidently in different genres.
She was excellent at teaching all aspects of voice including the anatomical structures involved and techniques to use the voice effectively.
She made difficult concepts easy to understand and used simple training tools very effectively. When I struggled in certain areas, she understood what my problem was even if I couldn't explain it well and helped me correct it.
In addition to her effectiveness as a coach, she is just a wonderful person and joy to work with. I plan on taking more lessons from her and I strongly recommend her to anyone!
I took weekly lessons with her for a few months and it was a great investment of time and money. I progressed from not being able to carry a tune at all to comfortably and confidently singing a variety of music.
She tailored every lesson to me so the lessons progressed as I did, which meant that my vocal skills and capabilities were continually growing.
Shelley's lessons were well structured and professional. They carried me through effective warmup exercises into singing that helped me continue to expand my range, delivery, and tone. I learned effective breathing techniques and proper shaping to get the clarity and tone that I wanted. I still implement her training on a daily basis and am now comfortable performing and recording a variety of musical styles and genres.
Her feedback and guidance was clear and easy to understand. Whenever there was concept I didn't understand, she knew how to explain it in a way that made it clear or use visual aids and basic tools to clarify.
Shelley helped me achieve a level of vocal control and confidence I didn't think would be possible for me.
Shelley is an outstanding teacher and I will take more lessons from her in the future!

If you're an aspiring Broadway performer, the steps you take during high school play a significant role in your success on the stages of New York shows in the future. Sure, you sometimes hear stories of people who book amazing lead roles in shows after a single audition, but that’s not a realistic view of how it all happens - for most actors, at least. Ask any working Broadway performer – New York is not a city that hands you success simply because you’ve just moved there. Hard work, disc …
