Great teacher! My 3 yo daughter loved her music lesson with Sarah.
Patricia G.
Sarah was energetic, positive, and kind with my daughter, age 11, who was really struggling to get a handle on a song for a play she has been trying to train for. This was her first voice lesson ever. My daughter was drawn in immediately by Sarah’s practical and happy approach and felt more capable and comfortable at the end of the session and is definitely looking forward to the next one. Hard to ask for more than that in a first lesson!

Hi! My name is Michael D. and I have been teaching voice lessons and singing professionally for about 7 years now. I use a wholistic method (using breath techniques and the natural speaking voice) to liberate students' unique and special vocal qualities, and have learned how to train singers to sing in any genre, from classical and opera to broadway, pop and jazz. Send me a message and let's talk!!

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.

I would like nothing better than to help you discover and develop your voice's greatest potential. Singing embodies many elements including proper tone production, rhythmic accuracy, proper diction and connecting to and sharing the emotional content of a song. It is a personal journey for singers to learn how to integrate all those elements into their own instruments and I will act as your trusted and supportive guide throughout the process. I have a master's degree in classical vocal performance from the renowned Manhattan School of Music and performed with opera companies in New York City. Currently, in New Orleans, I sing with the joyous Shades of Praise interracial gospel choir. I have had the privilege of studying with some of the finest voice teachers, conductors and coaches that America has to offer and I would love to share that combined knowledge with others. I have also had the agonizing and humbling experience of losing and rebuilding my voice after medical difficulties, ...

I've learned so much in a short period of time with Sheila. She is very easy to get a long with and not intimidating despite her distinguished resume. She has helped me immensely with the awareness of my voice and allowed me to explore my instrument in ways I hadn't try before. Sheila is patient and will continue to approach and explain a technique from different angles (with humour!) until it is grasped. Thanks to her I feel more confident and aware when I'm singing. So thank you very very much!

Singing is one of the most joyful activities you can do! Anyone can learn to sing.
I love teaching others to sing and perform, and I've been doing so for over 20 years - through private lessons, music theater workshops, music schools and choruses. I work with students at all levels and help them to build a solid technique that works for them.

(The percentage of people who are actually tone deaf is very, very small.)

Ms. Catherine has been wonderful for my daughter. She is patient and engaging with her and it is an honor to have her teach us.

The class was awesome!!
Catherine gave my daughter good acting lessons and gave a positive energy and courage as well.
My daughter had fun and she is already looking forward to the next lesson.
Bonnie
I was looking for a vibrant, fun piano teacher for my kids as they were not motivated by strict teachers who also taught them boring songs they could not relate to. What a gift of a teacher we found in Catherine. Not only is she warm, kind, caring with an easy rapport for kids and adults alike but she is also an excellent piano and voice instructor. This talented lady is a professional singer too who is well versed in Broadway show tunes and opera too. She also instill her students with a sense of musical rhythm and is holistic in her approach to kids who might need a little physical warm up before class in order to attend better. Catherine’s voice is magnificent and we were fortunate enough to attend a show where she played the lead for The Taming of the Shrew.
She is a professional voice and classical opera teacher too and this complements her piano instruction .. A perk is she can travel to your home or does lesions in her own home . In addition
is a passionate, excellent voice teacher for anyone who is looking to hone their vocal skills and talents. I wholeheartedly recommend Catherine - her lessons are more than just teaching - she is a true mentor and educator in every sense of the word.

Classical singing is my passion and I have recently received my Master’s degree in classical vocal performance at the Mannes School of Music. Equally at home in a versatile range of musical styles and repertoire from Baroque to 21st Century, I have acquired many different tools for teaching through my studies and performance experience.

Students of all ages and levels are welcome. Repertoire that I teach includes art song, opera, and operetta in English, Italian, French, German, and Russian with a focus on building a solid and healthy vocal technique. My experience in dance, Alexander Technique, and acting informs my teaching approach. I include body awareness, character interpretation, and making the music come alive as an integral part of the lessons.

I love to teach and enjoy helping others discover their voices and achieve their personal singing goals. My voice teachers have greatly impacted my life and my goal is to inspire my students in a similar way. Everyone has a unique

We live in California and my daughter (14) recently started online singling lessons. She is shy but she is breaking out of her shell with Ms. Isabel's help. Isabel is friendly, enthusiastic, and professional. Shortly after I signed up for lessons, she contacted me and we spoke directly on the phone. She is genuine about getting to know her students and their goals. After just a few lessons, I am seeing a difference in confidence level in our daughter so I'm looking forward to having more lessons with Isabel.

"I had an absolutely wonderful experience with Melissa. She is one of the most helpful and fun teachers out there! I was able to grow so much as a singer and there was a huge difference in how I came to her and how I am now. I am working on pieces that I loved but never thought I could sing. She is really good with technique and shaping you into a better singer though working on the foundations of what makes a good singer. She is very knowledgeable. Not only was every lesson a great time but I left with something gained! Lessons can be challenging sometimes but they were always fun and I always felt encouraged and supported to do better. Also, she is very flexible as I often had a busy and changing schedule and we were always able to figure something out!"

"As a young, low voice, my son was struggling with singing until he started taking lessons with Matthew. Since then, my son has developed a passion for opera and has decided to pursue a vocal performance degree in college. Matthew has not only helped him develop his voice, he has also had discussions about what to expect as a professional singer and has coached him through the college application/audition process. I can't recommend Matthew highly enough. He truly cares about his students and strives to help them achieve their own personal goals, whatever they may be."

"I cannot recommend anyone more incredible both as a singer and teacher, but more so someone who will bring your voice to new heights almost instantaneously other than LORI ANN.
For over 10 years, Lori Ann helped me learn the music, language, etc for several complicated operatic roles I learned in Russian, Italian, French and German. She grew my voice to new Heights and without her training, I would not have had the singing opportunities I did.

Lori Ann herslf is a mainstage performer with the Los Angeles Opera, having won a Grammy for her role with them in "The Ghosts of Versailles. "

She is warm and friendly and truly throws herself into making you successful at your craft. You never feel like any time is wasted."
