Julia V.

Portland, OR

Together we build your singing instrument from breath to vowels and tone so that, whatever style you choose to sing in, you are able to do it with ease.

About Julia

I have a Master’s in Opera Performance from the Boston and New England Conservatories as well as graduating from Vocal Performance programs at Boston University and Western Washington University. I have sung professionally with Boston Lyric Opera, Children’s Theater Companies, churches and synagogue and have toured on the east coast as well as Athens, Greece. Premiering new music is a specialty - I can help you prepare your pieces for auditions.  My students have successful auditions for college opera and music theater programs, and as choir soloists.
Students gain a larger vocal range and an
easy, natural way of singing whether it is in a rock band, choir or as a soloist. Together we find the joy of singing while building a solid technique.

I also work with small children as a Musikgarten teacher and have toured artist residency programs which introduce children to music and theater in schools.   I was adjunct faculty at the College of St. Benedict/St. John’s University, local music studios as well as maintaining my private teaching practice.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am persistent and positive! Having worked and performed with singers and master teachers has helped me to be a resourceful teacher who understands the process of becoming a singer. I believe that a sense of fun and play helps you to accomplish your goals quickly.  For beginners you will learn how the voice works and how to care for and develop your instrument. We will choose music that interests you and helps to build your voice moving from simple to more complex and challenging. Understanding music theory and sight-reading will help you get the most out of your singing. After 3 - 6 months you should have a good command of breathing and an understanding of how to sing with an expressive tone.For the advanced student, I can help you work on trouble spots and give you tools to help with the changes that voices naturally go through.  I look forward to giving you my full focus and celebrating your growth and accomplishments!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Condo w/ open area with f/w keyboard with a visitor's parking lot w/ seating for parents. Parents with younger siblings can use play areas outside.
Basic library of vocal music, giving the student a way to sample different kinds of songs before purchasing books or downloading songs on their own. Music stand, iPhone plug-in/Amp for accompaniments and examples you want me to hear.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a basic library of vocal music at my home studio and will bring targeted books with me. Students should print out their favorite popular songs from such services as Music Notes website.
I expect my students to provide a keyboard, music stand and notebook as well as a low distraction environment.

*** Specialties ***
As an opera and musical theater, Oratorio and church singer, I help singers of all levels improve within their genre from popular music to opera. A good singing technique will help performers in any style stay healthy and enjoy an expressive singing instrument.

Julia is an excellent vocal coach ! She's helped me come out of my shell and discover my vocal talents. Every lesson with her has been meaningful and inspirational. At first I was very shy and hesitant about pursuing lessons, but I'm glad I did ! I look forward to everything else she has to teach me.

Kayla is very informative and descriptive about how the body works in producing sound. She not only showed technique but also gave some easy tips on how to improve. Best of all, I finally understand how a raspy sound can occur without damaging the voice! This is a thing I've found difficulty in finding online, in a way that does not damage your vocal cords. All in all, a fun teacher and I recommend her, especially if you like rock/metal as she seems to have a great knowledge of this form of vocals.

Parvaneh G.

Lake Oswego, OR

Have fun while learning sound vocal technique! My lessons are for the budding professional as well as the person who just wants a creative outlet. You will get to choose the repertoire you work on, in addition to some songs that I will choose for you. I am a classically trained singer who is comfortable teaching students of all kinds. Healthy vocal technique will always come first, but my students will also learn ear training & theory. Let's develop your voice together!

About Parvaneh

Hello! My name is Parvaneh and I am a voice and piano teacher with over 20 years of classical music study. I grew up in the Portland area and studied piano for 10 years before focusing on vocal arts full-time. At 18, I moved to California to study vocal performance at UC Santa Barbara, earning my Bachelor of Music degree with honors. I excelled in ear training and music theory while at UCSB and performed in numerous operas and choirs, including as the alto section leader of the Santa Barbara Choral Society. After graduating college, I decided to pursue other interests professionally, but have
maintained my status as a professional vocalist with jobs as a paid section leader at several churches. Currently, I am the alto section leader at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Portland.

I believe in nurturing the individuality in each student and encouraging healthy vocal technique. My areas of expertise include: diction/translation, Alexander Technique, ear training and theory.

About Hayley

I received my Bachelor and Master degrees in Musical Theatre Vocal Performance and then relocated to New York City to pursue a successful career in the Performing Arts.
