There are many musical styles to learn to sing. I teach many styles. With proper technique you can sing in a variety of styles with ease.

About Laurelanne
I graduated from Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville, GA with a BA in Music Education, voice principal. During my years in public schools I taught a variety of age ranges and subjects including kindergarten general music, beginning band, high school chorus, and remedial middle school English and language arts. I have professional Yoga training and enjoy incorporating aspects of that when tutoring adult, middle school, high school, and elementary students. I also uses Yoga, brain respiration and other healing techniques in my lessons as needed.

I was a member of The William Baker Festival Singers and Summer Singers since 2003 before becoming Media Relation Coordinator in 2006 and Assistant to the Music Director in 2008 and left the group in July of 2009 to pursue other musical ventures.

Every student has a potential
for greatness no matter what their strengths and weaknesses are. No matter your age or ability level I will help you set your goals and reach them. All students should want to learn. I expect my students to be prepared and have an open mind. Learning to sing is a process. I focus on building technique and a strong musical foundation and customize my lessons for every student and individual needs. I use breathing techniques and exercises that are challenging and work toward quick and accurate results. I implement a variety of exercises to improve pitch, intonation, placement, strength, and endurance. My main goal in teaching is to encourage each student to get to know their vocal strengths and weaknesses while using all their skills to their advantage producing their best sound consistently.

We all grow and learn together and improve every time we try. I expect my students to do the best they can, practice regularly, be on time and have patience. I am excited about music and know it is also important to have fun and enjoy the process. So lets make some goals and get started!

I love all different kinds of music and Opera is such a beautiful art form. I sang multiple Opera songs while I studied music in college.

About Ruthie
My name is Ruthie and I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in May of 2007 with a Bachelors of Music Education degree with an emphasis in voice. Through my collegiate experiences, I had the privilege of participating in a Concert Choir, Barbershop/A Capella Ensembles, Vocal Jazz Ensembles and Performance in Solo Voice. The jazz program at UNC is one of the finest in the United States, and to be selected as a member of one of the vocal jazz ensembles was an honor in itself. From these experiences I have gained knowledge about the importance of vocal performance and music advocacy. I accepted a position as a general music teacher in Colorado in the fall of 2007 and then worked part time for a school in Laguna Niguel, CA until June of 2012. I recently moved from California to Minnesota and am trying to get my music student cli
entele established. I love to sing all different styles and I'd love to help you find your style and help discover your passions.

My passion for music started for me as a young child. I grew up in a musically inclined family, and was inspired and motivated by family members to use my gifts and talents to educate students about the world of music. My immense love for children, coupled with my educational experiences and my passion for music qualify me as a fun and exciting teacher.

I am huge lover of Barbershop/Sweet Adeline music and I recently competed in the International Young Women in Harmony Quartet Contest in Nashville, TN. My quartet, Vogue, won the competition. The Young Women in Harmony contest is for girls 25 years old and younger. I recently sang with a quartet called, Dolce. We competed in two International Competitions in Denver and Hawaii and placed 10th and 15th in the world. I was also a member of the International Gold Medalist Chorus, Harborlites, which is comprised of 180 female singers.

"Music isn't just learning notes and playing them, You learn notes to play to the music of your soul." - Katie Greenwood

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons will be educational and fun. I want to find your passions and interests and from there I will create lesson plans to enhance your learning experience in your specified concentration. Voice lessons will start with vocal warm ups and exercises and then we will proceed to work on vocal techniques and preferred repertoire. During the lessons we will create goals and work on those goals so you become a successful musician.

I am a very patient and caring teacher and I am able to create the lessons to your style and needs. Music is fun and I want to make it that way for you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a full keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
I studied music education in college with a vocal emphasis. I am classically trained but studied jazz as well. I also am a member of an internationally ranked barbershop chorus and quartet. I specialize in singing bass and lead in barbershop.

---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

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 am a classically trained Vocal Instructor and what this means is I was trained to sing opera like music. This has given me a great back ground in that no matter what style of music you want to sing or learn I can help you do it. One of the most important things you want to do is protect your vocal gift. I can teach you how to sing properly so that you don't damage your vocal chords and you can maximize your sound. Your body is the instrument and I will teach you how to use it to get the most beautiful results possible.

About Meagan
I grew up singing with my family and at church. I was in Choir from the 7th Grade to the 12th Grade. I loved it so much I decided to make it my life. I started my college degree in Vocal Music Education in 1995. I have loved every minute of singing and music being a part of my life. After I graduated with my Bachelors I went straight in to getting my Masters in Performance with an emphasis in Conducting. I wanted to be completely prepared to work with and teach students in public schools. I taught for four years in Arkansas as a choir director for middle school. I then became a stay at home mom where I would occasionally teach music lessons on the side. My family and I moved to New Mexico several years ago and we love it here. I started teaching for Albuquerque Public Schools last year. I enjoy working with my students. When w
e are able to get a song together and it sound magical then I know I am doing something right. I want to help students find their confidence in singing. This confidence will carry through all aspects of their lives. I found my confidence in singing and know how important that feeling of accomplishment is for everyone. We all want to feel that we are good at something. That we can make a difference out there in the world. When we can share our talents with others, even if it is just singing a solo at church, we are making a difference. Our talents can inspire others in ways we will not even be able to comprehend. Developing our talent can be the first step to so many paths in our lives. I hope you will take that first step with me.
