I work best with singers of any age just starting out, or those, such as older adults, who have had some training before and are looking to get back into practice.

Great instructor!

Alix is truly a phenomenal teacher! She is compassionate, nurturing, and seeks to improve her student's vocal abilities. All of our lessons have been thorough, educational, and certainly insightful. I have become such a better singer in only a few short lessons, and look forward to becoming a master in the next few!
Julie
Alex is an exceptional teacher. My 13 year-old wished for voice lessons for such a long time, and I'm so pleased Alix is working with her. She is helping my daughter improve her technique (breathing, posture, range, etc.), while keeping lessons positive and encouraging, and finding music that my daughter enjoys. When Alix demonstrates what she is describing- WOW, what a voice! My daughter looks forward to every lesson, and if it's possible, loves to sing even more since she has been learning with Alix.

Mr.Conran is a great voice teacher with very effective techniques to help sing better. My son, who sings really good, was not able to do a good job with his voice especially when he performs in the concerts. But, after we start the lessons with Mr.Conran, he is improving and getting better in his posture and singing!. I am blessed to find a teacher for my son to excel in his talent.

This is the focus of my vocal studio, and I began teaching in this style when I opened my voice studio in 2005. Curriculum will vary depending on your experience level with the subject and voice type. Technique is instructed from a variety of backgrounds, with basis in physiology of healthy voice production due to my combined background in classical vocal performance and voice therapy.

About Kristen

I want to dispel the myth that only a select few are "gifted" with beautiful voices. Singing is like a sport; it is a skill requiring refined muscular coordination, which anyone can improve with practice and focused instruction. My teaching experience encompasses students of all ages and abili

I love Kristen!
She's so good at explaining the most confusing things about singing technique (which for a beginner is a lot). She's very patient and it's heartwarming when she gets excited about the times I do something right. I trust Kristen with my voice and I like how she encourages me to do hard but fun repertoire. Would definitely recommend!

P.S. Her voice is absolutely beautiful. You know you have a good teacher when she demonstrates something and you think, "I want to sound like that."

A very good teacher for a beginner!

Great first lesson. Broke everything down very nicely and got me excited to excel.

Nina has been a really great influence on me creatively and has work with me on my specific voice type. She knows how to provide vocal exercises that will help me broaden my vocal range and strengthen my versatility, as well as gives me creative suggestions for ways to improve my cover songs and make them unique. She also is great with helping me work through my original songs and can pinpoint Artists to study in order to help me learn new skills. She’s positive and encouraging, and I always look forward to our lessons together.

I highly recommend Nina for so many reasons. Nina is AMAZING!!! I was really nervous about singing and had some bad experiences in the past but Nina completely righted the wrongs of my past singing experiences in such an encouraging, compassionate and professional way with her teaching. She can teach & sing ANYTHING! I'm so glad I'm working with her. Choose Nina, you will not be disappointed!

I have been teaching professionally for 15 years. I have a specific teaching curriculum with an emphasis on proper breathing and vocal placement to ensure vocal improvement within two weeks of lessons! I believe singing and acting should be a joyful experience and one that will be a positive change in your life. I teach mainly classical voice, Opera voice, and vocal training. I want my students to reach their musical potential and aspirations while having a wonderful time! As a voice teacher, voice coach, and mentor I have found that music, singing, and creating are almost primordial for many people. I try in my work to bring an understanding of the voice to each person as each voice is an individual spirit and color, helping them find and hold their own singular quality!

About Etleva

I am a professional singer and recording artist. I graduated from Johannes Gutenberg University, Germany with a Bachelor of Music, specifically voice. Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built-up

Joan López Giese
I've been Etleva Shemai's vocal student for about 8 months and the only thing I can say is that it was one of the best vocal-learning experiences I've ever had. Etleva is not only an amazing singer and teacher but also a kind, professional, and empathetic person, who teaches you how to perfect your singing skills with custom exercises. We've been working on emission, support, and line on a technical level and also on performance and expression. As a perfectionist she gets into the detail on every aspect she wants to be working on to ensure that we give our 100% when we sing. Even though we've been working on classical technique, I've been able to apply this technique to the pop-music repertoire and get amazing results, therefore anyone can learn a lot from Etleva. I am so grateful to have had the chance to learn from Etleva's experience and I definitely recommend her singing lessons.
Sylvia S.
Etleva helped prepare my daughter for her Vocal Performance and Musical Theatre college auditions in a very short period of time. She improved her voice technique greatly. Etleva's classical voice training and performing experience are paired with the best vocal coaching skills. We highly recommend her!

After passing by several well-known teachers. I came across with Mrs. Etleva Shemai who has lead me to the path of the roots and fundamental singning technique. Thanks to her I have now the right tools to develope and become a good singer and succeed on stage.
She is an exceptional and unique voice training teacher.

My 8 year old daughter just had her first singing lesson with Julia. I was concerned because though my daughter has great enthusiasm for singing, she has much to learn regarding pitch and musicality. Julia was remarkable with her! She was so positive, patient, and effective at helping my daughter learn to hear pitch. We're definitely sticking with Julia!

"Josh is such an amazing and caring teacher! Singing can be a vulnerable thing, especially when you are working on parts of your voice that need improvement and might not currently sound the best. However, Josh really made me feel comfortable when we were working on those parts of my voice and I could definitely see improvement even within the span of an hour! He is very knowledgeable when it comes to all the exercises that help you bring your sound forward, sing without tension and control your breathing. His enthusiasm for teaching is incredible and I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants try classical singing!!"

She is someone who not only has an extensive knowledge about the human voice and the art of singing but also knows how to command a stage. If you have any doubts, just look at her performance resume, and you'll see she's no stranger to a stage. She has taught me so much about performance and can teach you how to own the stage.

8 Beautiful Opera Arias for Beginner Singers

It is always exciting when a vocal student is ready to start studying his or her first operatic aria! One of the best things about being a classical singer is knowing you have so many great years ahead of you. After all, you’re considered in your prime in your 40s. That being said, realize that the voice you have now and the repertoire you’ll first study will be very, very different from what you sing later on in your career. It’s absolutely crucial that you sing repertoire that is …
