I just love watching as you emerge and find your true voice and self.

I love working with Aria! She is an excellent teacher. She worked with me on classical repertoire in Italian, German, French and English. Sbe helped me prepare for performances, scholarship competitions, program auditions, and my college auditions. She is knowledgable, patient, understanding and always willing to find time to help. She's great!
Jamie
Dr Thome is an excellent teacher. She not only loves music, but understands it. She is quite talented at sharing that knowledge with her students, helping them to grow musically. She is great with scheduling--accommodating extra lessons as necessary and able. Her work with my daughter is stellar. Aria helped her prepare for multiple auditions, performances and her conservatory auditions. I highly recommend her.
Angela
Aria is a joy, a light, and an overall wonderful human being. She is knowledgeable and makes singing a wonderful experience. She helped me prepare for my St. Louis Muny audition and I could tell that my technique and overall confidence improved. I was very pleased with my audition (that’s big for someone who is very self-critical). I also had the pleasure of learning various choral arrangements and catholic hymns and performed them with Aria as my accompanist for weddings. It was a wonderful experience.

Music theory is a fancy term for "how to think about music". If you wish to learn how and why certain music sounds like it does or makes you feel the way it does, we can explore these theories and concepts to develop different strategies to help you reach the next level of artistic expression.

Music is my life. Since the age of 16, I have studied the guitar extensively. During my high-school years I was involved in band, marching band, choir, and independent music theory. I started my first band when I was 19 in the U.S. Army, and my life has never been the same since. I played music

Ashley is a great voice teacher!!!

I was looking for vocal lessons for my daughter (middle school). Ashley is wonderful! She works very well with my daughter and makes her feel comfortable. She is very patient and has brought things out in my daughter I didn't know she had in her! She is now a lot more confident in her singing abilities and I see her using the techniques that Ashley has taught on her own now. Ashley also encourages my child to be well-rounded as far as music is concerned by challenging her to learn different music genres. As a singer myself, it is very rewarding to see my child grow like she has. Awesome voice teacher!

Chris is super responsive and adapts his lessons not only for my skill level, but also adapts the lessons to the small things that interest me. He's not only great at teaching the techniques needed to play well, but he provides enough theory so it's easy to understand. I'm extremely happy with Chris and would highly recommend him if you're learning to play."

How "Breathy Voice" is Created | The Danger of Breathy Singing

Singing in a “breathy voice” has a mixed reputation among singers and educators, and for good reason: it can be risky. In this article, we’ll discuss the mechanics of singing with a breathy voice, if it’s harmful, and how use to the technique safely. Remember the spectacularly cheesy film “A Walk to Remember”? In this 2002 film, Mandy Moore sings a pop ballad called “Only Hope” using excessive breathiness to create a fragile, emotionally charged aura for her character. …
