Private Singing Teacher

I have been a professional singer since 1983 and have taught since 1986. I studied voice and trained classically from 1972 - 1982. Several of my students have been professional singers, from rock to opera. I teach the individual to understand the technicalities of the vocal instrument; how to breathe correctly, understand the internal acoustics and how to access them, how to project healthily, how to relax and get out of the way of using your instrument, and so much more. This is not your typical voice curriculum, but even more essential if you want to keep your voice in top form all your life. At 67, I can sing with or without amplification for several hours a day indefinitely because I have mastered the techniques I will teach you.

About Barbara

Singing is my life! I trained classically from 4/1972 - 4/83, then continued concentrated self study for 5 years. I sang for Voice of America and National Geographic Explorer specials before becoming voice coach for the MD Renaissance Festival. I have sung professionally since '83 and have taught

I have been taking lessons from Barbara for 3 to 4 months now.I live in a condo so when I practice every 2 weeks I take my PA.over to my x girl friends house to practice .She is the person who got me started 12 years ago and she knows my voice well.She rarely compliments me on anything which is common for an x girlfriend, however the last 2 times I practiced at her house ,she cracks a big smile and says with suprise"You have gotten better!"Thanks Barbara!

With all my students, I emphasize good technique. No matter what genre of music or age of student, singing in a healthful and fun way includes great posture, good breath management, and producing a free and easy sound.I believe that each student has their own unique way of learning, so I tailor my lessons to fit. Immediate feedback and specific practice instructions help my students gain a sense of confidence and assess their progress. Last but not least, singing should be fun!

About Michelle

Instilling and nurturing a love of music and developing musicianship are why I’m a voice teacher. I earned my Master of Music Education degree in 2012 from Boston University, which has furthered my love of teaching and given me even more resources to draw from. With all my students, I emphasize

She is energetic, funny, and enthusiastic to work with her students. Our son had his first lesson tonight and enjoyed it very much,
Elise
I worked with Michelle for a little over 2 years. As an adult student, I was super nervous about singing in front of anyone - it took me this long to just sign up for lessons! She was patient with me and gave me lots of tools for dealing with my nerves and stage fright. Michelle helped me to choose songs that I not only wanted to sing but that matched my voice and range. I was hesitant about performing in a recital but Michelle pointed out that it was like training for a marathon - doing all the work but not performing just seemed silly. It wasn't perfect but it was definitely something I'm proud to have crossed off my bucket list.

I've been teaching Singing for three years and have 13 years of professional singing experience. The curriculum I use is based on the wealth of music in my personal music library that is available for students to use. Students are also welcome to bring in their own sheet music. My teaching philosophy is content-based. I like to demonstrate the songs for students, and then let them fly with their own ideas.

Corinne is a wonderful teacher! She is patient and has such a positive energy. I always leave my lesson feeling better than when I came in. She's very knowledgeable and wants the best for all her students. She can teach any age! I'm a 25 year old beginner and thought it would be difficult to learn and keep up with playing the piano, but Corinne supports and inspires me. I can't recommend Corinne enough.
Vanessa
I have been wanting to play an instrument for such a long time, but never had the motivation to try it, until recently. Wanting to play Piano was a spur of the moment decision for me. I googled piano teachers in my area and Corinne was one of the first people to pop up. After reading all her rave reviews, I decided to give it a go. I was so nervous for my first lesson, but she made me feel comfortable and at ease the minute I walked through the door. She is educated and passionate about music. Also, she is extremely patient. I have been going to her for Piano Lessons now once a week for almost 6 months and I couldn't be happier with my decision. I absolutely, without a doubt, recommend Corinne. She's amazing!
Ashleigh
We love Corinne!! My daughter started taking piano with Corinne when she was 5 and she absolutely loves her! Corinne is so patient and kind with the kids and goes at exactly the right pace for each child. My daughter has learned so much and is reading music as she plays - amazing!! Highly recommend Corinne, she's the best!

"Joann Ross is a great voice teacher. Glad I found her through this website.

I am an older male adult. I always wanted to learn how to sing but did not have much singing experience. I play guitar and thought it would be nice to sing. I was very apprehensive about taking lessons because I thought I had no singing talent. Joann is a great teacher. She is helping me find my voice. She is very professional and is helping me learn how to sing by starting with fundamental building blocks that are logical and understandable.She is a very knowledgeable, patient, kind, and understanding teacher. I look forward to taking lessons from Joann. My wife is also taking cello lessons from Joann, who is an accomplished symphony cellist as well."

Washington, DC Singing Venues for Everyone

By Mariana P. - DC Voice Teacher

When Washington, DC is mentioned, most people immediately think of politics. Great opportunities for singers or singing lessons in Washington, DC would not be the first thought on someone’s mind. As serious as it may seem, the Washington, DC area has an eclectic mix of singing venues for all performance levels and music genres. The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts houses the Washington National Opera and also offers free concerts every day at 6:00 pm on their Millennium Stage where any musical group can perform after an audition. DC is also home to many small theater companies which hold open auditions for anyone interested; musical theater, show choirs and jazz bands are among the most prominent genres.

There are plenty of venues where students taking singing lessons in Washington, DC can cultivate their skills. If Rock ‘n Roll is your trade, the U Street corridor hosts many rock spots such as The Black Cat, Velvet Lounge and of course, the U Street Music Lounge. For those who prefer smaller spaces with open mic opportunities, Busboys and Poets in Arlington, VA and Jammin’ Java in Vienna, VA should not be missed. Let’s not forget those who sing just for personal enjoyment. If you ever want to experience the thrill of being on stage, karaoke is the way to go. Café Japone is a local favorite as well as Peyote Café in Adams Morgan. Little Miss Whiskey’s Golden Dollar takes the karaoke experience to another level, allowing its patrons to come in costume or providing them for those who come unprepared. Now that you know where to go to build on the skills you are already learning from your singing lessons in Washington, DC, what are you waiting for? Get out there and sing!

Tips for Singing: Why Practicing Scales Matters

It's a common misconception that singers and instrumentalists are two completely different types of musicians. They're actually much more alike than you might think! The difference is that, as singers, your instrument is your body! Because of this, as you learn how to sing, you'll likely come across some specific issues of technique. One of the most important things for singers to work on is singing notes that are perfectly in tune. Generally, producing the correct notes for an instrumentalist …
