About Barry
Hello! A little about me... I have a Bachelors Degree in Music, 15 years of performing experience, and 10 years of teaching experience. I would love to share what I've learned to help you find your authentic sound. I try to approach each student individually vs treating everyone the same, catering to learning styles and willingness to learn. I hope to see you soon!

*** Lesson Details ***
I think everyone is born with the capacity to sing, with their own unique voice. I think often times we "get in our own way" and hold ourselves back from truly realizing our potential. I would love to help find your true voice so that you can do anything you want, whether it's singing in the shower or in front of thousands of adoring fans at Carnegie Hall!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Practice rooms with upright pianos.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If t
here is no piano, we can work from the mp3 player or a cd player and make it work!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Jazz voice, improvisation (scatting) and Broadway singing. I am also trained in Acting.

I am a Roster Artist at Lyric Opera of Kansas City with 92 productions to my credit. I have also sung with New Haven Opera. I am currently singing La Bohème for the sixth time and awaiting contracts for the 2014-2015 season.

About Thomas
From the time I began musical training at the age of 5, I knew that music making would always be an important part of my life. It became my muse and I followed it all around the world. I have performed in Japan, England, Scotland, Wales, Italy, France, Austria, and the United States. I know what makes a good musician and a good performer and I'm pleased to be able to share that with my students! MY STUDENTS WIN AUDITIONS! I taught in several of the States and in London. I am also a certified teacher in Missouri, Kansas and other States including England, Scotland and Wales. I hold a Bachelor’s degree and Doctorate from Ball State University, and a Master’s Degree from the University of Bridgeport. I have studied on fellowship at the Aspen Music Festival and University of London. While teaching in London I performed at many famous venues s
uch as Queen Elizabeth Hall, St. John’s Smith Square and Somerset House. I sing at Lyric Opera of Kansas City where I have appeared in over 90 productions. Upcoming: Mozart: Magic Flute, November 9-17, 2013 and Puccini: La Bohème, March 15-23, 2014   I also sing professionally at Grace and Holy Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Kansas City. Whether you are seeking coaching on technique, Broadway, Opera or the American Songbook, I would be happy to work with you to realize your full potential. I get excited about helping students become good performers! Let me help you become the best musician you can be, IN PERSON or ONLINE!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher with a great sense of humor. You will also learn a lot of music theory and music history from me! My lessons begin with some training in reading music (Music Theory) and I suggest that you purchase Alfred's Music Theory Volume One or Two depending on your level of understanding.

After refreshing your music reading and rhythm skills, we will listen to you sing and begin to vocalize. I will develop exercises just for you, to help you develop your voice, making it stronger and more flexible.

When you have warmed up your voice with vocal exercises, we will work together on the music you wish to learn. It could be a song, an aria, a Broadway or Opera aria, or a religious piece.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Large 30 foot living room with two pianos, music stands, keyboard, couches, seating area.
Mac computer, multiple cameras and great sound system.

*** Specialties ***
Classical Bel Canto (beautiful voice) style, operatic singing, Broadway style, Art Songs (Lieder in French, German and Italian.)

Whatever your goals and aspirations are, I'll tailor the lessons to your needs and wants so that you can get the very most ou

---REVIEWS---

"Moreover, my attention was riveted by the young bass Alexander H...when he sang it, the foundations of the Warsaw Philharmonic trembled. It was truly an exceptional voice!"
-Wielkanocny Festival LvB Czasopismo

"Alexander H brought so much charm to Leporello that at times he nearly stole the show."
-Opera News

"The best sung was the King's plea to God for Iolanta's healing in the strong bass-baritone of Alexander H."
-Opera-L

"Bass Alexander H commands the stage."
-The Day Connecticut

"Alexander’s portrayal of the Count...was memorable. His resonant voice and litany of curses set up the final scene and marked the kind of pace and flow and continuity that made this production come alive."

Roberta is amazing! I went to her for a little more than 3 years for voice (and piano for a little bit) and she is very helpful, skilled, friendly, knowledgable, and fun. She helped me get into my top choice college as a choral music major with a full tuition scholarship and supported me the entire way. Roberta knows how to work with any voice with any level of experience of any age. Not only is Robera a fantastic teacher; she is also very understanding and a great person to talk to. I would highly recommend her to any student in the area.

My lessons provide a healthy environment for the student and the student's voice to grow properly. I always ensure that my students feel at ease and that their voices gain efficiency and power at the same time. I use reliable singing fundamentals that focus on breathing, relaxation, production, projection, mobility, and range. These methods derive from traditional Italian schools of singing combined with a modern, American approach. I will also help the student find ways to learn music more effficiantly, how to pronounce and translate foreign languages, and how to bring your own acting abilities to the music.

About Alec
Hello! I have been teaching the fundamentals of classical singing for many years now and have received a Bachelor of Music and Master of Music in vocal and opera performance. I promote a fun, determined, and healthy learning environment in order to make sure that my students learn the technical fundamentals in breathing, relaxation, production, and projection. My classical and operatic training has given me a wealth of vocal knowledge and allows me to make sure all styles of singing are executed as efficiently and healthfully as possible allowing my students to express their talents as much as they can for the least amount of effort.

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ: If I travel to your home for lessons, A PIANO IS REQUIRED for the lesson as well as for when you practice outside of the lessons. If you do not have access to a piano, please w
ait to set up/pay for lessons until one is acquired.

I can help you sing correctly in several styles by making sure your support is engaged, and that the position of your throat is open and your larynx low, in addition to teaching you how to use the "muscoli della maschera" (muscles of the face), and a ton of other useful singing techniques. And can help you with your musicianship as well if you need that too!

I have a DMA and MM from the University of Southern California, Thornton School of Music and have taught voice since 2007 privately and in colleges and universities in southern California.

Stephanie is a wonderful teacher!

I always was interested in learning to sing opera and was a complete beginner when I first starting taking lessons with her. We did our lessons at my house, which was always really helpful and convenient (she can also do online lessons, too!).

Stephanie was always so patient and encouraging, even when I had trouble with certain songs. She genuinely seemed happy for me whenever I made progress! She also helped me a lot with breathing techniques, which is something I always struggled with.

Stephanie is one of the best teachers I’ve ever had and would highly recommend her to anyone!

Every singer should know how their instrument works. I will teach you how your voice works and how to sing in a healthy way. Feel good, sound good!

Also, singing isn't magic, and the world isn't divided into people who can sing and people who can't. Singing is a skill that anyone can improve, and I can teach you tools and habits that will help you get better.

I studied voice and voice teaching + anatomy at the University of Washington and I've been teaching voice for over two years. Let me help you sing better every day!

About Aryn
Music makes me happy and teaching makes me happy. As a teacher I am focused and energetic. Even though voice lessons are to performing as the gym is to the playing field, I find them fun and I hope you will too.

I have a bachelor's degree in voice from the University of Washington. I studied the art and science of voice, from anatomy to phonetics to technique to emotional connection with the music. This means that I can help address many different needs and questions for each unique singer.

I've taught students of all experience levels and all ages, from 7 to 83. I would love for you to be my next student!

I have taught chorus in public schools and have extensive vocal training. I recently relocated to this area after living in NYC for 4 years studying musical theatre with some of the best teachers in the business. I have an extensive knowledge of vocal technique and how to best help you to bring out your best sound! I am knowledgeable in classical technique, musical theatre and pop/rock singing. I like to teach my singers how to have a foundation of technique so they can sing in any style!

About Marilyn
I am a professional teacher, actress and singer. I graduated with a Bachelor of Music Education from Furman University and was immediately hired by a public school system to teach chorus and general music at two middle schools. While I was there, I more than tripled the number of students in the program and started a Gifted and Talented Chorus as an after school program.

I left my position teaching because I was offered a spot in the prestigious Cap 21 Musical Theatre Program. I studied musical theatre extensively for two years and was taught by teachers who were also Broadway performers and had trained the likes of Lady Gaga, Anne Hathaway, and Kristen Bell as well as countless Broadway performers. The vocal technique training there is like none other and I'm excited to share what I learned there with my students!

I am happy to w
ork on a variety of vocal styles in my lessons such as Classical/Opera, Musical Theatre, and Pop/Rock. Our voices are amazing and can do so many things, I would love to help you find yours through a foundation of breath support and technique. I also am happy to coach acting/performance if you are preparing for an audition.
