Harper B.
My 8 year old daughter just had her first singing lesson with Julia. I was concerned because though my daughter has great enthusiasm for singing, she has much to learn regarding pitch and musicality. Julia was remarkable with her! She was so positive, patient, and effective at helping my daughter learn to hear pitch. We're definitely sticking with Julia!

Private Speaking Voice Teacher

Our voice is one of many ways to communicate, it is a gift and an amazing gift at that. Our voice can be used to communicate, interact, teach, tell a story, display how we feel, transport people’s hearts to another place or time; to name a few.
Being able to use your voice is one thing but to also be able to perform and have your audience receive you well takes skills and training. I will help you engage with your audience while you display your art through your voice.

Chai has been such a wonderful teacher in helping me work on my tones.
She also gave me valuable advice on how to monitor and adjust them on my own.
She is simple the best!
Teeko
I’ve been taking lessons with Chau for about 3 months now and I’m absolutely thrilled with the progress I’ve made. Chau is very detailed in her explanations of vocal concepts which allows me to understand what and why I’m doing what I am with my voice. I’m constantly amazed by her ability to pick up on the most nuanced details of my voice to both correct bad habits and encourage good ones.
Richard
Chau is a great instructor! I came in with zero singing experience and was a bit nervous to start. She made me feel at ease and immediately gave me exercises and techniques to improve my singing. I've been seeing her for about two months now and I'm already seeing great progress that I'm proud of.

I joined a small group session with Johanna a few times and it was one of the most positive singing experiences of my life. Johanna is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and kind. As a novice singer, it was really awesome for me to learn more about how to use my breath and body as a tool to free my voice. Johanna is truly embodied in her work and her enthusiasm and passion are contagious. Whether you are a professional or a beginner, I can't recommend Johanna more highly.

I have been coaching in this subject for over 16 years. There is no specific curriculum as each student will come to lessons with their own unique skills, needs, and goals. Lessons are tailored to those specifics. Lessons focus on vocal production technique (enunciation, breathing, projection, inflection, etc.), stage presence, and interpretation. These areas are usually worked on using texts provided by the student. Additional material may be used as needed. Students should come to the first lesson prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study.

Troy is an absolutely magical teacher and mentor. He not only provides caring, personalized instruction that goes far beyond the traditional fundamentals, he really takes the time to push me in ways that I find enjoyable and rewarding. I feel as though my lessons are dynamic and varied enough to keep me always engaged and looking forward to that next session. Best of all, Troy is that special type of guru that really gives you that added incentive to go the extra mile...I never feel a guilt or pressure to be at a certain level or practice a certain amount, I just feel this desire to impress Troy during my next lessons. Awesome stuff - very special guy! Looking forward to a lifetime of learning with Troy!

A great person and respectul man. I would highly recommend him for anyone that needs coaching with speech techniques etc.

Great first lesson; I didn't know what to expect as an adult beginner student, but he's very welcoming and the lesson was comfortable. Definitely looking forward to the rest of my lessons and practicing.
