About Wesley

The voice can be fickle, mysterious, and deeply frustrating. I know this because I struggled to connect to my own voice for a long time. However, with the right direction and commitment, our voices can be fulfilling, powerful, and free. When I feel connected to my voice, I feel exhilarated.

Wesley is an excellent instructor. He is patient, guiding and very supportive. He is fantastic about giving praise and building confidence and provides very helpful feedback when needed. I feel I am advancing more quickly that I thought I would which I credit to Wesley, his instruction and the encouragement he consistently provides. You will not find a better piano teacher!

Deanne has been so wonderful with this shift to online teaching. Deanne is talented, patient, intelligent, and really makes any student improve tremendously. Any student is lucky to learn from Deanne.

I agree with everything the other reviewer and student said. Deanne is very knowledgeable, positive and enthusiastic. And she makes voice lessons really enjoyable. I was on the fence with taking voice lessons and I am extremely glad I went with it, and Deanne is a big part of this reason.

Techniques such as breathing, diction, pitch, tone, posture, rhythm, smoothness, and stage presence will be practiced. I do my best to develop lessons that are tailored to each student based on their individual needs. Lessons start simply with gentle vocal exercises based on humming and open vowel sounds. Each student can expect to be challenged through exciting stimulating exercises. I also teach techniques to improve posture, poise, and vocal performance. I enjoy using simple scales to improve pitch and volume while also working on clarifying the students voice.

A students performance, whether they aspire to be a performer, teacher, or just enjoy performing should have a positive self-portrait of themselves. We will work on building confidence so we as performers can take pride in ourselves and what we represent. My students are expected to practice outside of the lesson. I also encourage them to keep a practice journal of when and how long they have practiced. It helps the ...

Great. Very personable and easy to relax with. Great exercises and homework I feel is doable as my first ever vocal lesson. Can't wait for my next session :)

My 5 year old daughter has become a stronger dancer with Ms. Kelly as she builds up for her recital. We are truly lucky to find such a dedicated and talented teacher.
Tracey
I was very lucky to have found Kelly. I had always dreamed of having artistic talent but I am not a naturally good singer. Within two years, I have gone from singing in the shower to having developed to stage performance. Kelly has taught me so much from the artistic expression of singing to the mechanics of turning my voice into an instrument. She has an incredible ability to listen to my voice and pinpoint the exact adjustment I need to make it sound great. She's such a fun person to be around that I always look forward to my next lesson. Her positive attitude and approach is also a testament to her high level of professionalism. She provides feedback that is positive. but also helps me improve She is the perfect combination of teacher and coach and I would highly recommend her for anyone interested in singing.

The rewards gifted as a result of becoming more in touch with ones voice is invaluable. Whether the student comes to a teacher looking for correction or guidance in a specific area regarding the voice, it often leads to mental blocks unseen. I believe when it comes to the the gift given, it is always by way of confidence within, that is vocalized outwardly. I believe what makes my lessons unique is more concentration on the person than the voice produced.

About Kurt

Of all the things we learn about ourselves in life, there has been one absolute for me personally: I was born to sing. As long as my memory goes back, I could mold my voice to sound like whatever I wanted it too. My favorite thing to do with this was make it sing. However, as a young boy, I kept th

"Gfire was amazing. In this very difficult year, Gfire's lessons gave my daughter an opportunity to continue with an activity that was safe and engaging. My daughter looked forward to her lesson every week. Gfire was fantastic at communicating with us and problem solving any tech issues that arose. She definitely did everything possible to provide the best possible lesson for my daughter. Thank you so much!!!!"

"I selected Elizabeth as my classical vocal teacher when I moved to North Scottsdale and have been very pleased with my experience thus far! My voice has improved in tonality, quality and all over sound. Currently, I am relearning music techniques and correcting bad singing habits. After we ran thru a variety of scales and arias in our first practice she suspected I was only utilizing half of my vocal range. I thought, "ya ya, okay". But, Aaah, she was right! I've always placed myself as Mezzo-Soprano/Contralto ( a 2nd Soprano-1st Alto) but after improving some techniques, at her recommendation, I am discovering a very high song bird-esque Soprano sound coming from me! I am beyond thrilled at my newly discovered voice set and am looking forward to unearthing more of it."

"I highly recommend Sarabeth to anyone interested in singing, whether you have already had some background in voice or you are just starting out.

Sarabeth is a truly amazing voice teacher!!! She led me step by step through many vocal exercises and taught me many a great classical song! Her patience and encouragement were ever present at each lesson as I stumbled through the classical songs which were written in other languages.

I have SMA type 1-2, a severely debilitating and progressive disease, and my lung capacity was 24% of normal when Sarabeth started teaching me. Under her guidance, I was able to increase my lung capacity to 28%! Believe me when I say that this is not supposed to happen to people with SMA. In general our lung capacities continue to decrease as the disease progresses until we need to be placed under mechanical ventilation. The most common mode of death for people with SMA is respiratory failure.

I am deeply saddened that Sarabeth is moving away to Los Angeles and will no longer be able to be my singing teacher, but wishing her the best of luck there!!! I will always remember her as the incredibly wonderful teacher she is!"
