I have been teaching singing for 4 years and my students vary from amateurs to artists who prepare for auditions and take part in performances. Within the first few lessons, we will learn to increase the attentiveness of our hearing and gain firmness of tone (primarily by means of this very constantly attentive, governing hearing). As we advance, we will gradually gain knowledge of the instrument (your body) by means of easy exercises. The tools are very simple and very few. The center of the process is the effort of your attentiveness and your imagination.
I specialize in opera, but have helped singers from every walk of the art. Singer-songwriter students have been greatly supported by my composition background.
We typically start by those difficulties that most concern you about your singing. Students of all ages and experience levels are welcome.

Whether you want to prepare yourself for college auditions, sing better at your choir or church, or just enjoy the fun nd health benefits of singing, I can help you. With almost 15 years of teaching experience, I have come to watch many of my students go on to college and graduate school successfully. Most of them under full tuition scholarships. I am a classically trained singer myself and the approach to my lessons are over all focused on healthy emission of the voice with emphasis on breath suport and appropriate placement according to the style you want to perform: classical, musical theatre, jazz or any contemporary genre. I will help you reach your goals with vocal exercises and weekly routines designed specific for your needs. All you need is desire to learn and enjoy!

About Daniela
I hold a Bachelor degree in Vocal Performance and a Masters in Vocal Performance and Voice Pedagogy. Singing and teaching are my two passions! I am a classically trained singer with an operatic lyric soprano voice. Opera is my first love, but I also like and enjoy singing musical theatre, jazz and other contemporary genres. In fact, for quite a while I taught at a Berklee International Network School in South America, where jazz was the main emphasis of my students. I enjoy teaching students from mostly any age and any background. From beginners to more advanced singers, as they all present some form of challenge and different rewarding experiences.

Coincidentally, I have come to teach mostly teenagers and young adults, sort of specializing in college audition preparation where %100 of my students who have applied to attend music schoo
l have successfully been accepted. Most of them under full tuition scholarships to pursue singing careers. Some of them are currently attending the University of Denver, CU Boulder, University of the Redlands, University of British Columbia, Universitat Mozarteum (Salzburg). I also have experience teaching senior citizens from a community choir and members from an all visually impaired choir. I have never encountered any difficulty while teaching students with special needs. This experiences have actually made me become a better more creative educator.

My lessons are focused on healthy emission of the voice working on breath support and adequate placement of the voice according to the style. Once we have gone through a diagnostic and discuss the student´s goals, I prepare a routine of vocal exercises tailored for the individual needs and skill level of the student as well as negotiate on the repertoire that the student wants to sing.

If teaching in the student´s home, I expect for the student to have at least a basic music keyboard for pitch matching purposes. I also expect my students to practice in between lessons so that every time we meet we can add another layer of knowledge. This will bring gratification and fulfillment to both of us!

Dani is a really special instructor for me! She helped me realize how big my passion for singing was because, since the beginning, she has inspired me with her singing, passion, and knowledge. She was my teacher for 4 years and she prepared me to get into CU Boulder’s School of Music. With her guidance I improved not only my vocal technique, but my musicality, acting skills, languages, and every single aspect that a singer needs to be a professional artist. She was really specific and patient about my growth as an opera singer and she always helped me find the perfect repertoire for me. I can say that I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for her. Dani saw the best in me even when I didn’t, and I am still learning a lot from her.

Daniela has been my favorite vocal trainer so far. Besides her expirience and knowledge about the voice, she took time to really listen to my voice and identify things I was doing wrong, or things I did not even know how to do. She empowered me so much that now I actually use my whole body to sing, and I also feel more confident to do challenging things, with my voice, with no harm. I feel that there is a before and after, in my voice, thanks to Daniela as my teacher.

All levels of singers will learn proper breathing and technique.

About Adriane
For as long as I can remember, music has played a large part in my life. By the age ten, I already knew that music would be more than just a hobby for me, it would become my career. I have been singing for over 20 years, and began playing piano when I was eight years old. I received a BS in music industry studies with an emphasis on business, from the University of Colorado Denver in 2008. I have extensive experience in performance and the music industry as a business, and have had the pleasure of experiencing the local music scene first hand while playing in bands. My years of experience enables my students to learn different aspects of music from the fundamentals, to writing, and even the music industry as a business. Students should expect to quickly grasp the basic skills such as proper breathing and posture, and will start singing or
playing right away. I truly enjoy sharing my love of music and the industry with my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
Music lessons should be fun but educational. I want to know what your goals are and what you would like to get out of your lessons. Each lesson will be tailored to your specific goals and situation, so that you can get the most out of our time together. Whether music is a hobby, a career path, or something in between, you can expect to learn what interests you most. We can focus strictly on your instrument, or even go beyond and talk about song writing, or the music industry.

Littleton, CO

I have been teaching voice lessons for 5 years. I teach diction (5 languages), breath control, resonance, tonal quality, intonation, etc.

About Ellen
As Abbe' Dimnet once said, "Children have to be educated, but they have also to be left to educate themselves."

I aim to teach my students how to sing through kinesthesia. This allows them to internalize what they are doing in the studio so they can practice it at home and be more successful. Practicing what they learn in the studio will help them gain good habits, making singing and performing more effortless. One of the hard things about learning how to sing, is learning to use muscles you can not see. This is why kinesthesia is important! It helps the student learn how everything feels, so they can produce free, open, resonant sounds.

I also aim to teach my students artistry! Music can be a powerful influence in our lives and society. It is important for a student to learn to connect with their music so they can be better perfor
mers.

Last, I am a member of NATS. This allows me to continue my education on the voice and gives me new insights from other great teachers and vocal scientists around the nation. By being a member of this association, it also allows me to give my students opportunities to compete in competitions and get feedback from other great teachers.

I grew up in Centennial, Colorado and started playing the violin in 4th grade. I developed an interest in singing in middle school, and started voice lessons when I was 16. I have been singing ever since!

I graduated from Brigham Young University-Idaho in April 2009, with a Bachelor degree in Music Science. I emphasized in vocal instruction.

I am happily married to my husband, Kevin, who is currently studying to be an optometrist.

I sing and teach all styles of singing, and I believe that good vocal technique will prepare you for anything. Taking voice lessons is a great way to become more confident, to impress your friends at karaoke, or to prepare to make your living as a musician. I will help you discover your voice and prepare you to sing well in any situation.

I don't sing metal or scream myself, but I'm definitely willing to help you learn how to sing that way as healthily as possible.

About Tony
I studied Voice Performance at the University of Denver, earning my Bachelors of Music in 2011. I've been teaching voice, piano, composition, song writing, and music theory for 8 years to students of all ages. Teaching is one of my greatest joys as a professional musician, and I hope to share that joy with you!

I focus on three principles in every lesson I teach: be aware, be creative, and be efficient. As awareness increases, seemingly contradictory ideas become complimentary; as creativity develops, we laugh and smile on the journey towards musical fluency; when we think and practice efficiently, we realize we're capable of far more than we thought.

My lessons are a platform for each student to become the best singer they can be, according to their own definition of success. We will sing any genre you love, and work on the quality of your sound and on the authenticity of your interpretation. You will learn voice technique, diction (if language different than English) as well as stage presence, and how to engage your audience to the fullest. Working with me, you can always expect to have a relaxing and fun self-discovery time.

About Giorgia
I started my solo and backup singer career at the age of 12, working for RG Recording Studio (Italy). When I was 15 I founded a children's choir (ages 5 to 15) called Voci di Pace. I trained them as soloists and as an ensemble, as well as conducted them through the professional recording of dozens of CDs. I also trained and conducted students for the recording of highschool musicals.

I began my conservatory bachelor degree training in cello and chamber music in 1997, and graduated 2010. Since then, I have studied singing technique with pop star Silvia Mezzanotte and with opera singers Chiara Fiorani and Noa Frenkel.

I love to teach singing, singing in Italian and Italian diction to students of all ages and backgrounds who are ready to explore their own souls and bodies and to learn how to be themselves through sound and music.

My approach to vocal training is similar to my approach to teaching piano. I start with a song the student wants to be able to sing well, and we work through any issues like pitch, breath support, modulation, and tone until they are singing well and with confidence. We will also cover exercises for warm-up, strengthening the voice (as someone who plays 100-200 shows per year, vocal health is something I have learned a lot about), and expanding range.

About Christopher
I am a pianist and singer-songwriter. I recently moved to Denver, Colorado from Des Moines, Iowa. I make a living full-time as a musician, and give piano, vocal, and songwriting lessons in my free time.

I have worked in an official capacity for the non-profit ArtForce Iowa, teaching piano, voice, and songwriting to court-appointed youth. I have also taught piano to adults, and lead an annual songwriting course at the University of Iowa's Young Writer's Workshop.

My main musical project is called Christopher the Conquered. You can look it up online to hear samples of my work and to watch videos of my live performances. My music has appeared in films and commercials as well.

For in-person lessons, I have a portable recording rig that I can use to record students who are ready to share what they've learned, whether it be with friend
s/family (a great gift) or with the world by uploading the songs online.

It is such a joy working with Christine. I was extremely nervous to start voice lessons because the voice you're given is who you are, it is a very vulnerable art form.
