I teach operatic Bel Canto singing to beginners, intermediate, advanced, and touring professionals.
During your first lesson I do a computer analysis of your voice, I find out what your goals are in singing, what your favorite kinds of music are, and I take you in the direction you want to go and show you how to get there in the shortest possible time.

I always record my students so that they know how they sound to others. I also make a CD of them singing to background music if they wish, included in the cost of the lessons for no extra charge.

Learn to sing beautifully, and most important, emotionally.
Learn the parts of your vocal instrument, How each works, How they work together. Develop Breath support (80% of singing).
Learn how to do the Singer's Formant, "Squillo" (that "ringing" sound of professionals).

Learn how to conquer nervousness, learn Resonance, Overtones, Vibrato, How to sing high notes, Learn the "singing vowels", and more.

I would rather teach ...

Carl took the time to get to know me, and began to feel so comfortable with him. It was perhaps the best experience I have ever had with a teacher for singing. I received great information and techniques.

I am passionate about connecting students to their own unique voice through discovering the relationship between the body, the brain, vocal discipline, and personal expression. I work on creating a resonant and freely produced sound throughout all the registers. My goal is to promote healthy vocal technique while having full engagement in a song. I believe that singing is not only learning the right notes and words while delivering a lovely sound: singing is conveying your emotion, your engagement, and your character’s situation to the audience. Once your voice is lined up with great technique, your “own” true voice will begin to surface with an increased vocal range, resonance, and heightened flexibility between notes. You will explore who YOU are as a singer and discover what repertoire works best for you. I also emphasize working through the actor’s process, so she can fully prepare you for any audition or performance.

My son had such a blast at his first lesson. Thank you Kelly for making him feel so at ease! Your beautiful voice and obvious love of music, your teaching technics and your openness to my son's needs hooked him in :) He cannot wait for his next lesson. See you soon!
Christine Cullin
Kelly is a fantastic teacher who we would recommend without hesitation. Kelly partners the dynamics of voice, proper breathing techniques and performing skills to make sure her students reach their full potential. While working with her, my daughter has built a diverse repertoire of performance pieces, expanded her range and learned a solid foundation of voice instruction. Her fun and dynamic lessons would benefit singers of any level.

Private Opera Voice Teacher

I will meet you wherever you are, and together we will develop a personalized plan to meet your goals. I will combine - all in an easy-to understand format - music theory, phonetic training, foreign language studies, classical training, voice theory, ear training, vocal training for multiple styles, vocal/auditory health, and music analysis to create the best plan to make you into the musician you want to be!

Singing is a very technical thing. The human voice is an instrument like any other that you can understand and use in a technical manner. But also your voice is a direct extension of your spirit, your identity, your history, and your passions that others can directly perceive! To truly live in your voice, to be proud of your voice, is to be proud of yourself, fundamentally. I will use my clinical knowledge and my personal knowledge as a singer to teach you to use your voice technically without robbing singing of its soul.

About Saturday

I am a trans nonbinary voice teacher with a bachelor's degree in Speech Language Pathology, 13 years of experience as a professional singer, and over 10 years studying and teaching singing, music theory, voice theory, and speech science. I love cats and I am obsessed with Star Trek DS9 and TNG.

Very helpful and flexible, appreciated the lessons and the homework outside of the lessons to improve my voice. Definitely saw an improvement just in the 5 lessons I had
Bina
Saturday is one of the most phenomenal instructors I’ve ever had! They really worked with me to understand where I was struggling and found a way to practice that worked for me! They are always so patient and ready to teach. I truly feel like I have improved so much since I started lessons with them!
Josh
I've thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Saturday so far! As a classically trained singer who has spent all of the quarantine away from choral ensembles and a capella groups, it was absolutely refreshing to be able to dive into a different aspect of music (in my case, broadway singing) while touching up on the music theory aspects of the genre itself. I've been pleasantly surprised by the way that Saturday has been able to relate the more modern styles of singing to what I am already comfortable with while keeping the mood of the lessons fun yet efficient. It's definitely been worth my time and I'm excited to continue learning with them.

Javi is the perfect teacher for both rookie and veteran performers! He is patient, extremely detailed in his feedback, and can make many improvements in such a small amount of time. I particularly appreciate his strong classical background as a solid foundation for learning other styles. Even ONE lesson with Javi provides the student with extraordinary technical training. Thanks Javi!
David
Javier has been such an amazing teacher. Before taking classes, I was completely tone deaf but really wanted to learn to sing and hit notes correctly. At first it was a struggle for me, but Javier was very patient with me, encouraging, and knew exactly how to change what I was doing wrong to get the pitch I needed correctly. He has background in opera and Broadway from what we’ve talked about. He’s very nice but is disciplined which is a great balance. I def recommend Javier, he really cares and wants you to succeed in your goals and really has helped me create the beautiful voice I wanted to get. Thank you Javier!!
Ellie
Javier is an amazing voice teacher. I took a few lessons with him and I feel that my voice has improved already. He’s really patient and detailed, I would recommend him to everyone.

After just a few lessons, I’ve learned a lot about opera/classical singing from the ground up and have already developed a much deeper appreciation for singers.

I'm having a blast exploring music in a new way, and it's really helping me "find my voice", which was ultimately my goal. She said that exploring and refining this aspect of my voice will help in all of my vocal endeavors. I'm also enjoying learning to read music!"

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 …
