Cincinnati, The City That Sings!

By Stacey S. - Cincinnati Singing Teacher

Contrary to popular thought, the local aspiring singer does not have to move to big cities (such as New York, Chicago or Los Angeles) to get started with a full-time music career. There are plenty of opportunities for all ages and abilities in our amazing city of Cincinnati - otherwise known as "The City That Sings!"

I'm Stacey, and I am a professional, full-time singer and pianist in Cincinnati. I was born and raised in the nearby suburb of Florence, Kentucky, and I am proud to still be an active member of the Cincinnati singing c
ommunity…which is huge! There are many ways to get involved with this community while taking singing lessons in Cincinnati. Pick one or several, sign up for lessons at TakeLessons, and join in all the noise-making!

Choral singing is a great way to learn and strengthen ensemble skills, work on technique, develop ear and harmony abilities, and have fun with like-minded friends! It is also a great way to get to perform at high-profile and intimidating venues with a whole crew of singing support!

I started singing in my church choir at the age of five. Ask some local musicians to learn how you or your child can get involved in your community of faith! I also sang in the CCM’s Children’s choir now known as the Cincinnati Children’s Choir, in which I often had solo opportunities and great performing opportunities!

Have a young boy who likes to sing? Consider having him audition for the Cincinnati Boychoir, the region's prestigious professional boychoir! For adults, there is the very prestigious May Festival Chorus, with whom I was able to make my Carnegie Hall debut! May Festival is the official chorus of the Cincinnati Symphony. There is also the May Festival Youth Chorus for high school students, which also regularly sings with the Symphony!

Looking for less of a time commitment and a non-traditional choral experience? Join the Young Professional Choral Collective, a group of YPs that practices and performs in downtown bars!
http://ypccsing.org

There are a ton of other choral groups in Cincinnati, thanks in part to our strong German heritage. The Greater Cincinnati Choral Consortium is a group of 44 of the regions choirs! There is a choir for everyone!

Cincinnati is known as a hub of great local theater. Performing in a musical strengthens stage presence, helps boosts confidence, and is a whole lot of fun!

Looking for a less formal way to sing? Why not check out one of the many open-mic nights or Karaoke events? Wednesdays at the Northside Tavern you can catch Sexy Time Live Band Karaoke, where yes, you’ll get to sing karaoke with a professional band! To see their schedule around town, visit:
http://www.sexytimekaraoke.com

Karaoke Fantastic is a personal favorite of mine, as they have over 16,000 songs available with extremely professional sound equipment and mixing. You’ll sound like a pro, even if you’ve just started your singing lessons in Cincinnati!

Open-mic nights are a great way to try out a new song and get some performing experience…usually with only a small crowd (i.e. less pressure!). Visit http://openmikes.org to find an event near you! Often, these are held in coffee shops, so are good for the younger crowd!

Not quite ready to perform, and just looking for some good music to listen to? The University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music, Northern Kentucky University and Xavier University all have amazing music and theatre programs with tons of free events happening all year round, as everyone who graduates with a performance degree must present at least one free recital!

My daughter Caroline has been taking voice lessons with Stacey since March, 2014, and right away she developed a strong rapport with her. Stacey is a wonderful teacher. Not only is she a very talented singer herself, she also has a very outgoing personality and truly cares about helping her students achieve their dreams. Just a few months after she started lessons, my daughter achieved her goal of being accepted into her high school's vocal ensemble. Since then Stacey has encouraged her to participate in other competitions and recitals. Stacey has not only developed Caroline's talent, she has helped develop her confidence.

My daughter, M.J, began voice lessons in August 2014 and I'm amazed at the progress she's made in such a short time! Here is what M.J has to say about lessons with Stacey:

"Stacy is SOOOOO AMAZING!!!! She has helped me not only with my singing, but with my confidence and my life. Her cats always cheer me up after a rough day at school. She has improved my singing so much that I actually tried out for the Wizard of Oz. I wasn't going to at first, but she helped me learn somewhere over the rainbow, and made me more confident to try out. She is an amazing singer herself and not only the best singer I know, but a great friend to me. I go to her for thirty minutes on Wednesday and that is definitely the highlight of the week! I always can't wait to sing with her and talk with her. If you are looking for the best voice teacher in the world, I highly recommend Stacey!"

I came to Stacey to pursue a dream that I was never able to pursue as a child. This was dream to sing. While my goal was not to be a professional singer, I simply wanted to tap into my breath and my voice so that my presence through my speaking and singing would be stronger. I wanted my voice to be vibrant and more alive. Stacey's professional and down-to-earth presence helped me shift the way I breathe, the way I speak, and the way I sing. My professional life involves frequent public speaking and b/c of my work with Stacey, my confidence has increased and I am the stronger educator I yearned to be. She shifted who I am and how I give myself through my voice and breath in this world. I highly recommend working with her regardless if you want to sing for professional develop, for voice exploration, or simply for fun.

David P.

Cincinnati, OH

For voice, students will learn scales, keys, breathing techniques, delivery, and diction. Breath is the most important tool for proper pitch and vocal strength. Students are encouraged to play an instrument to help with voice lessons, but this is not necessary.

About David

David P. began formal training with St. Elizabeth’s church organist on piano at age eight.  His older brothers and sisters taught him how to play guitar at home, and at school he was a featured vocal soloist at concert performances.  During his high school years, he began playing drums and singing at shows around the greater Cincinnati area.  While attending Xavier University, David continued to play in several groups.  He performed with the Xavier University Choir for four years under the direction of conductor and music department chair Helmut Roerig.  David performed with the Xavier University Percussion Ensemble and studied drums with John Gardner of the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra for four years.  He studied voice with Harriet Beebe and piano with Rebecca Slater among ...

Terrific Teacher

He is a stupendous teacher. He makes his students feel comfortable, which is essential for optimal performance, without being excessively lax. The diaphragmatic breathing technique he began our first lesson with has proven to be incredibly valuable in signing and in my life in general.

David has been an excellent teacher for my young children. He is patient, encouraging, and has a good teaching method. My children made good progress and although they were skeptical about taking lessons, once they had a lesson with David, they continued to come back and made very good progress.

David is an incredible teacher and mentor. I recommend him without any reservations.

David is not only gifted at building your talent and ability - he will help you build your confidence. I took weekly singing lessons with David, starting with no experience at all, and he took me to a place I never thought I could be. Lessons are relaxed, efficient, and directed at your own pace, and David has a way of making you very comfortable with his patient, kind demeanor. He is a diamond in the rough, and easily worth 2x the money.

Christopher M.

Cincinnati, OH

Students receive personal instruction that is geared toward their area of vocal interest.

About Christopher

I believe that everyone can enjoy singing. Not everyone gets the opportunity to sing at the Metropolitan Opera, Broadway, or other world famous music halls. Nonetheless, I believe that with proper training, patience, and practice everyone can enjoy the art of singing within their own level of giftedness. If you have never tried to sing for fear of embarrassment, or If you love to sing and want to learn more or if you just want to brush up and fine tune, my studio is the place for you. Nonetheless, I believe that with proper training, patience, and practice everyone can enjoy the art of singing within their own level of giftedness. I take time to listen to a student's instrument and lesson by lesson determine what is the best course of positive action that I and the student need to ...

Margaret O.

Cincinnati, OH

I have taught and accompanied voice students for over 15 years. I have been the music director and choral director for several church choirs including children's choirs for over 18 years. I like to mold my teaching style to the needs and goals of the student. I am strong in music theory and the training needed for voice students. They come away with a better knowledge of music no matter their age. Young students get an extensive musical experience along with their vocal training.

About Margaret

I have taught the piano along with guitar and voice for over 40 years, since I was 16 years old. I started lessons at 9 and continued lessons while I began teaching beginners at a music studio. Since then I have had many different experiences with all kinds of students. I love sharing the gift of music with my students. My goal is to give them a wonderful musical experience and allow them to expand their knowledge of music in a structured manner and can grow to become a casual or professional musician. *** Lesson Details *** I adjust my teaching style to the students goals. I like to say I am laid back but do expect progress each week. I can teach the piano for beginner to advanced students. Some students are college bound and need to learn the disciplines of music. Other students ...

Best Teacher I Had

I had a few teachers growing up and she was by far the best and I learned the most from her. As well as teaching the fundamentals and essentials to learning, she also allowed for a lot of flexibility and creativity to learn different styles of music. Also as I got older we could just discuss a lot of subjects on music and was genuinely fun. Had a huge impact in my playing and then also future teaching of piano.
