I am so grateful to Andrea....

I have always loved to sing, and sang in several choirs when I was younger. But I had "lost" my voice, and wanted to see if I could recover it. Andrea was wonderful in working with me: I was barely able to release any sound when we started our lessons. Within weeks, Andrea helped me discover how to form the vowels and release the sound. [I have moved out of state, so Andrea only had a limited time to work with me.]

She is passionate about music, and yet very patient with her students. She did not patronize me with false praise when I wasn't getting it, but she still encouraged me. And when I did get it, she was quick to affirm my progress. I strongly recommend Andrea as a voice teacher.

Andrea is a great voice teacher

I started taking opera lessons with Andrea this summer and I absolutely adore her teaching style. She not only has the education level and teaching experience to help you reach your potential, but she is very easy going and extremely comfortable to be around! With me, she zoned into my weaknesses and was able to make me aware of what I need to work on and from there I was able to make improvements. I would definitely recommend Andrea because she is an awesome voice teacher!!

Karissa K. Denver, CO

About Karissa

Born and raised in Burley, Idaho, my parents purchased a piano from an auction for my sister and I when I was seven. After a family friend taught me my first scale, I played it non-stop. My parents both decided it was time to invest in lessons so I could learn to play at least more than one thing! With encouragement from my teacher, I began teaching piano lessons during my sophomore year of high school and I have loved it ever since. I have had a lot of experience, teaching children as young as five, as well as adults with no musical background. In 2011, I graduated from Colorado Christian University with a bachelor's degree in Music Ministry. I have been classically trained and my favorite composers are Chopin and Debussy. I've also spent a lot of time playing popular music and in ...

Karissa is amazing! She works with you right where you are at an makes sure that you are comfortable. She never got impatient with me and my progress, and she helped me find music I actually want to play instead of the boring standards. She works with what time and what day you need, pushes you to be better, and to have confidence! Such a pleasure to work with!

I started taking voice lessons from Jamie kind of on a whim- I had always wanted to learn to sing but I was nervous and kind of shy about it. Right away Jamie made me feel comfortable. He is very encouraging and gives criticism in a positive way. It is obvious that he really loves music and is knowledgeable about many different genres. I love that he focuses on theory and technique- as a beginner these are the lessons that I was looking for. After five lessons I already hear a big difference in my range and my vocal strength as well as my confidence, and I am sure that as I progress he will continue to challenge me. I highly recommend him.

Jamie is an excellent voice teacher. I have learned a lot in the few months I've been taking lessons with him, and feel a lot more confident in my singing. My range and my knowledge of music have definitely improved. At each lesson you do a vocal warm up, go over music theory concepts, and then work on a song. I would definitely recommend Jamie; you will improve and have fun doing it!

Jamie has been my voice teacher for almost three years. I have enjoyed working with him on a variety of different songs and musical styles. He always has fun, sometimes challenging warm-ups for me to do at the beginning of each lesson. During the lesson, he is very good at helping me find better or easier ways to sing certain notes or phrases. He has a good ear and can tell if I'm singing something in an inefficient or incorrect way. When he offers me corrections or suggestions for ways to improve my singing, he does it in a way that is easy to understand and doesn't make me feel incompetent.
I feel that my singing has improved quite a bit during the time I have been working with Jamie. And as my voice improves, so does my confidence. I always look forward to my next lesson to measure my progress and to see what new things I might learn.

I have only had three lessons so far, but Parker has been very easy to work with. I am sure that I present a challenge as far as structuring a lesson program. I am an older student (late 60's), I had some formal music training learning to play the accordion when I was young, but I am entirely self taught on guitar. I played guitar for several years when I was in my late teens, & picked it up again about 8 or nine months ago.
Consequently, I am all over the map in terms of my capabilities. Advanced beginner or intermediate in some technical areas, but with major gaps in my understanding of both theory and technique, Parker has done a nice job initially of not spending too much time on things I already know, but still covering enough of the basics with me to identify gaps in my abilities that need to be strengthened. I have enjoyed my sessions, and the pace has been about right so far.

Extremely knowledgeable, and best of all: he knows good tricks to teach you the content. He's done this for years and will serve you well. He can occasionally get sidetracked/off-topic, but it serves to provide insight into other aspects of the lesson and doesn't detract from the content. Overall, I'm very happy continuing lessons with him! :)
