In this course students will learn advanced vocal techniques used to cut an orchestra, musicality, and acting skills. IPA is also covered in this course. This course is ONLY for advanced singers from ages 16+ for much is expected of students enrolled.

About Rebecca
I received my undergraduate degree from Chicago College of Performing Arts with a degree in Vocal Performance, and am earning a graduate degree in Vocal Performance from Loyola University New Orleans. Along with learning vocal technique, I've learned piano, conducting, music theory, ear training, advanced diction, intermediate French, and basic Italian and German. One of the benefits of studying with a student pursuing a higher education is you don't only learn the knowledge that I have collected over the years of my 10+ years of Vocal Training, but also the knowledge of my teachers that I study with in school!

Stephanie is a great instructor! She is very knowledgable, professional and patient with her students. She takes the extra time to ensure my son understands what she is teaching him. She is very flexible and communicates with me.

She provides a positive environment and I look forward to starting my other children with her as they get older.

I am a colleague of Stephanie. I am impressed with her work ethic and love and care for people. She is constantly striving to learn more and find a way to make the information she learns accessible to her students. I have watched her perform on multiple occasions. She is emotionally engaging and musically proficient. I would recommend her to any student looking to grow as a musician. She will not disappoint!

About Vanessa C.

Minneapolis, MN

Everyone chooses to take voice lessons for different reasons, but we all have to take the time to find our own true voice. I have ten years of experience helping beginners of all ages find a basic technique that helps them express themselves, entertain, and communicate with their friends, family, and larger audiences. My students have been seen on many professional local stages in musical theatre productions, as well as being accepted into prestigious university programs. A loving, creative approach with motivating joy helps students find the best in themselves and share it with their adoring audiences!

About Vanessa
Vanessa Christian is a soprano, music instructor and teaching artist living in Minneapolis, MN. Growing up in a tiny town on the Canadian border, Vanessa immersed herself in all things music from a very young age, falling in love with everything from Alanis Morissette to Les Miserables to Rachmaninoff, and everything in between. She is excited to pass on her passion for all things musical to her students.

Vanessa has a vocal music degree from Bemidji State University, with continued graduate work in opera, musical theatre, and modern American music at Longy School of Music of Bard College in Cambridge, MA. Other creative and scholastic pursuits have led her to places like New York, Italy, and Berlin, performing contemporary and classical opera, musical theatre, and choral works in nine different countries by the age of 30.

Specializing
in teaching practical piano to aspiring singers has caused Vanessa to examine what skills are necessary for anyone to become a self-sufficient, life-long musician. Whether you’re learning as a hobby or in hopes of a future career, music literacy and expression are at the top of the list. Miss Vanessa emphasizes both from the very beginning with motivating joy and a creative approach.

Equally comfortable with children and adults from complete beginners to early advanced levels, Vanessa teaches piano, voice, and combined piano and voice lessons. She feels so grateful to be a part of her students’ musical journey!

About Citlali A.

Singing has been a passion and a form of artistic expression for me since the age of five. Trained by both male and female established vocal coaches in the genres of Opera, Broadway/Showtunes, R&B, and Soul, I believe that it is vital to keep an open mind to the teachings of professional vocalists at all levels and styles to fully harness the potential of your voice.

Sessions will be tailored to the student’s individual style and experience level. No prior singing experience is needed to begin harnessing the power of your voice. Furthermore, no single training session will be the same. Each lesson is completed with the student's vocal health and unique style in mind, building off of previous lessons, and focussing on areas of improvement where necessary. Students will work on breath work, facial positioning, and exercises developed to strengthen tone, widen the range, and improve pitch. I am constantly explicitly stressing the importance of expanding knowledge on ways to improve ...

About Citlali
I started singing lessons at the age of five. My first vocal coach was a man who worked as a professional vocalist in various Broadway shows. Many of his techniques are still extremely useful today, and can be practiced by those at all levels of experience. My second vocal coach was an established Opera singer, a lead soprano of the Boston Opera. She taught me how the style of exercise has nothing to do with the genre of which you sing, but the mechanics of your voice. My third vocal coach has sung with some of Motown and R&B’s biggest artists, and has stressed and ingrained in me the importance of how less is more when expanding the vocal range. She has also worked with both Mariah Carey and the late Whitney Houston.

While performing recitals across the city of San Diego, I had the honor of collaborating with an accomplished music produ
cer, Jason Brauner, at the age of 12. We co-wrote and recorded a number of songs, of which a couple were donated to an album of which proceeds were donated to victims of domestic violence. After working with Jason for about 5 years, I was signed to a record label in Los Angeles, at the age of 17 and worked with international producer Jean Michel Soupraya. Today, I am currently a lead singer for a San Diego based Reggae band, and have performed with this group at venues such as the House of Blues, Tin Roof, Hard Rock, Music Box, and more. I am constantly explicitly stressing the importance of expanding knowledge on ways to improve the voice not only for my own personal growth, but for the progression and improvement of my students.

I look forward to our future lessons.

XOXO
