Learn to sing the songs that you want to sing! My approach to lessons gets you singing the genres of music that inspire you to create and express yourself right away. I've taught for 3 years. I studied at The Boston Conservatory for Classical Voice and since then, I have branched out to musical theatre, pop, and rock. I've toured with my alt/indie band multiple times, performing at multiple sold out shows for music that I wrote. I have experience performing roles in legit and contemporary musical theatre as well as opera. My training and understanding of the human anatomy coupled with a wholistic and positive approach to mentality has helped my students grow in ability and confidence. I welcome all levels of experience/all ages and I teach students of all gender identities. Some of my technical specialties include: belting, riffing/agility, breathing, loosening up the voice, vowel placement, and utilizing vibrato and straight tone.

Thorough balance of theory and performance

I am very pleased to submit a recommendation on behalf of Mitchell K.. Mitchell is an excellent young singer and teacher, able and willing to put his well-developed technique at the service of music and text with style and authority at such a young age. I have found Mitchell’s clear and resonant tenor voice quality refreshingly beautiful. His musicality and technique rivals colleagues years older. His understanding of vocal pedagogy and building young voices is extraordinary. In short, I could not recommend more highly Mitchell as a voice teacher and as a very talented singer of a wide variety of styles. He is a wonderful individual, bright, articulate, highly motivated, and would be a most positive influence on every student in his voice studio.
Stephen
Mitchell was incredibly supportive and really made me more comfortable singing in front of people. He made things easy for me to get better. He helped me belt more healthily and really boosted my confidence. He listened to me and let me work on the kind of music I wanted to learn and also pushed me to sing things outside of my comfort zone.

You should expect to learn all vocal techniques just the same as any student but we fine tune your technique balance to suit the desired sound for different genres. We cannot just stop at the sound, the full performance has to be explored so we go over musical tools to enhance performance vocally as well as acting though the song, staging, guestures, and facials.

In singing, we learn ear training, as well as note-reading, and a variety of vocal techniques, including breathing, pronunciation, strengthening the vocal muscles, and expanding the student's range. We also talk about the story telling behind the lyrics of a song and various performing techniques.

For books, I use the Full Voice Workbook series, in combination with some of my own materials for ear-training and basic theory. I use a variety of songbooks that focus on Disney songs, Broadway/show tunes, classical, and folk songs, depending on the student's age. If there are songs the student wants to work on outside of our regular lesson material, I encourage them to bring that to the lesson as well.

"my kind of teacher

initially, I was reluctant about entering into the program. I thought the traditional mode of instruction always the best. it all changed when I wanted to try learning the more unconventional way. it was an experience having Wilma for my teacher in Singing. she has way of making lessons so easy to learn. I admire her for the patience and for adjusting to my level as a beginner. seldom people find teacher who has the proficiency to make hard lessons understandable and easier. more so I like her style developing a more open teacher-student relationship where I feel free asking questions and clarifications pertaining to matters no clear to me as a student I felt her passion to her craft. all in all I cannot question her credibility as a music teacher especially in the area of singing which happens to be my interest. I loved the manner she presented the lessons. she made them adaptable to the situations. It was really an experience having her for my music teacher. my perspective has changed. though I started on a very low note, she made the lessons so interesting to look and study at. here is hoping I would still have better chances learning especially the voice lessons and with her as my coach, then, I fervently believe it is possible."

He has a great ear and picks up on little subtleties in your voice that you can improve, and this causes you to hold yourself accountable to the same standards as a result.

"Rachel is most excellent, and quite learned in the surprisingly confusing art of singing. There are large framed pieces of paper confirming her advanced knowledge next to the piano, one of which is in all caps so it's super official. She's patient but knows the benefits of pushing what you think your singing limits are, and shows you see the whole process from a different, more helpful perspective."
