Singing in Detroit is Indeed What We Do!

By Lauri H. - Detroit Voice Teacher

I am a teacher - I suppose I have always been a teacher! I love to help people unwrap the gift of music that we all share, to learn to find their voice to express and enjoy music and its language. I recently moved to the Detroit area and have discovered a world where music is truly the universal language, amongst all ages, colors, beliefs, and backgrounds. We truly share a need and passion to make music and Detroit is famous for that underlying passion. I have taught singing and keyboard instruments my entire adult life. I am also a professional perf
ormer. To me, there is no greater joy than watching another blossom from learning.

My philosophy can be wrapped up in my desire to help everyone discover their own musicianship. I believe that all human beings are capable of producing and understanding music and therefore MUST be given the opportunity to do so. My goals for each student are individual, comprehensive, wrapped in hope and rooted in encouragement. We can all learn to make music, read music, and develop innate gifts to their best potential with simple and basic understanding. Singing is as natural as breathing - in fact, most of it IS breathing! The breath gives power to the voice. We just need to learn how to harness that power and read the page of notes and make it into something beautiful.

Teaching Detroit singing lessons has given me the opportunity to help many talented students reach their goals through TakeLessons. Since moving to Detroit, I have also begun working with children and teens through the Detroit Children's Choir and the Royal Oak Children's Choir. I am singing with a local church choir and enjoying a plethora of musical offerings around the city as a result of these activities. I love many genres of music - classical, jazz, and gospel in particular. These genres are still thriving in Detroit and it is a delight to be part of this. Sign up for Detroit singing lessons to discover your musical abilities and unwrap the gift of a lifetime!

Randy L.

Franklin, MI

My only job is to help you find your own voice!
And to have a lot of fun along the way!

We record you all the time in a recording studio environment. Then you will benefit from getting used to that voice that only you can hear. This is like having your own producer!

I am no throat specialist, but, I have accompanied singers for decades and may have some suggestions to help you. From breathing to posture to intonation, to energy, enunciation and more, there is a lot to cover.

I will accompany your singing at the keyboard all the time. I will also encourage your recording with karaoke tracks as well. Listening to yourself is exciting and helpful. Get over that insecurity. Come sing with confidence!

An integrated approach:
Music almost always involves several skills. Below are some of the complementary skills that I can help you with. In my Semper Method, we always address several of them at every session. For example, we record, sing and play all the time. To sing you ...

I don't ever write reviews for anything, normally because I'm just too lazy :)
This guy deserves a good review. He's passionate, extremely knowledgeable, and exactly what you would want in an instructor. I'm still learning and very new to piano, but I'm glad I chose Randy over the many other options. No instructor is going to do the hard work for you, that's your job. A good instructor will motivate you and keep you on the right path, this is the guy.

Thank you Randy

Randy is my piano teacher. But to say that I merely take piano lessons with him would be an understatement. His title should probably also include inspiring mentor and compassionate friend. His positive energy and hilarious, kind spirit are contagious. He will forever change the way you listen to and feel sounds. He not only helped me creatively express the music inside of me in a way no teacher has before, but even more importantly, he's helped me find my voice and welcome joy and gratitude back into my life. So if you're ready to let go of your nerves and your ego and step into his studio to explore the music that is within you, then this unforgettable experience awaits. :)

Kathryn E.

Ferndale, MI

About Kathryn

I am a singer with over 10 years of classical training and have been teaching voice for several years. I have performed in opera, oratorio, musical theater, jazz, folk and Irish ensembles. I can teach repertoire in French, German, Italian and Irish Gaelic. I can also teach beginning piano which is great for some of the younger students who aren't ready for full voice lessons and want to combine both. I have years of experience singing professionally. I have been lucky enough to tour North America, Asia and Europe with different Irish groups form small bands to performing 8 shows a week in the touring company of the Broadway show Riverdance. Singing is a huge part of who I am, I have been doing it since before I can remember and I love sharing what I have learned with my students. *** ...

I have had lessons with Katie now for almost 2 years and I am very impressed by her dedication, patience and ability to motivate and engage me. I have performed in several events so far and for each performance, I heavily rely on Katie's input...so far, they've all gone well thanks to my astute instructor. I wanted someone that could help me grow in classical singing and I am happy I found Katie. Katie is able to teach a wide repertoire from Bizet's Habanera in French to Schubert's Gretchen am Spinnrade in German. She also takes me through diction before we start learning the songs. I highly recommend Katie to anyone new in the area looking to grow in their vocal technique no matter the style.

Tuesday R.

Detroit, MI

I emphasize a standard classical approach. I thrive on good, solid technique. This will enable students to master any type of music they wish to study.

In each lesson we will vocalize, work with your posture, breathing, vocal technique and repertoire of your choice.

Every student is different, so your lesson will focus on you and your abilities.

About Tuesday

I have been singing and playing piano all of my life. I took my first music lesson I was just three years old I never looked back! After high school I earned my Bachelor of Music Performance and my Master of Music. I attended Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond. It was in Louisiana where I began my teaching career, about fifteen years ago. After returning to Michigan, I began teaching K-12 music in both public and private school settings. I currently maintain a private studio in addition to teaching voice part-time at two of local colleges. *** Lesson Details *** I emphasize a standard classical approach. I thrive on good, solid technique. This will enable students to master any type of music they wish to study.

Brandon S.

Madison Heights, MI

I've been developing talent and teaching voice for 10 years. I also specialize in Stage Performance. I'm a Vocal Producer/Songwriter turned Talent Developer. I've written songs for The Backstreet Boys, Trey Songz and more.

My best of both worlds background led me to develop "The 5 Phase Singing Method" that has been a huge hit with the hundreds of singers that I've trained. My belief is that voice lessons should be FUN yet EFFECTIVE.

Notable student: X Factor Finalist, Diamond White
