Private Opera Voice Teacher

Opera is such a beautiful genre that I love to sing! As with any student you learn all vocal techniques. Attention to detail is what sets this genre apart so we explore challenging concepts and tools to really help your instrument reach it's fullest potential. We cannot stop at just a good vocal sound however, the full performance is explored from musical tools to acting through the song and staging/gestures.

About Marissa

My musical journey started in high school when my algebra teacher saw me in the hallway, grabbed my hand and brought me to the choir room to sign up for The Sound of Music auditions. To this day I cannot believe my math teacher unknowingly sent me straight down a path that I would walk the rest of

I have a M.M. in vocal performance from the Chicago College of Performing Arts and have extensive operatic training. I teach an open throat technique (appoggio) that allows the singer to sing with freedom, and access their entire range evenly. I also work with students to develop style, interpretation, languages, and acting ability.

I have extensively studied vocal performance for many years and continue to add to my own technique. I have a Master of Vocal Performance Degree from the Chicago College of Performing Arts. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology, where I extensively studied the anatomy of the voice. I am th

Ben is awesome. I've been trying to learn singing for years but never improved this rapidly.

I especially like that he's no-bullshit kind of teacher, who is incredibly honest about what I'm doing wrong and how to improve.

Highly recommended!
Estie
I'm really thrilled with my lessons with Ben! I can see improvements and am given clear instructions as to how to practice. My aim is to sing well and with confidence and he's supporting that endeavor.

I grew up on a farm in the middle of nowhere Indiana. From an early age I was fascinated by solo singing. I started in church on Sundays, screaming my little head off. From there I got on stage in my first role ever, Sir Evelyn Oakleigh in Anything Goes. That was it. I was hooked but I had one

Miriam is by far the best singing instructor that I have ever had. She works with you so well to make sure that you find some sort of growth in your singing ability every time you meet with her. Totally Incredible!!
Brian
Miriam has made a tremendous positive impact on my vocal technique. Her vocal pedagogy is masterful and her vocal chops are top notch from her extensive experience touring. If you are looking to become a better vocalist and wish to enjoy your lessons, I would look no further than Miriam Porter.

is a complete opera singer, with a great background and stage experience. Is awesome the way he conducts the lesson, explaining all we need, how many times we need. When he gives an example, we can feel this solid technique, and art of singing.
Thank you Maestro"

He can develop voices of any type to their full potential, but his specialty is, arguably, large voices. He expects a high level of commitment, so my advice: do the work. Doing the work will maximize your experience. He's keenly sensitive and understanding. If you're serious about a career and developing your voice in a healthy way, this is the guy."

"On behalf of my son who is 15. Before finding Asuka, Lukas had taken voice lessons from several very good teachers (between breaks we would experiment with teachers).
Now with Asuka he feels most comfortable and feels he learns more per lesson with Asuka. More progress with all aspects of voice. She helps prepare for auditions with Broadway vocals and advance on the more serious and challenging Opera selections.
So the actual lessons are great and Asuka is also a charm; engaging and personable. As the parent I very much like she remains a professional singer as her career.
So we are staying with Asuka through the breaks and may even extend into piano lessons as well.
I would recommend Asuka without hesitation."

8 Beautiful Opera Arias for Beginner Singers

It is always exciting when a vocal student is ready to start studying his or her first operatic aria! One of the best things about being a classical singer is knowing you have so many great years ahead of you. After all, you’re considered in your prime in your 40s. That being said, realize that the voice you have now and the repertoire you’ll first study will be very, very different from what you sing later on in your career. It’s absolutely crucial that you sing repertoire that is …
