Proper technique, warm ups, exercises, theory, ear training, proper repertoire based on age, ability and voice part. Preparation to audition for and perform in opera or for school.

About Jennifer
My name is Jennifer. I got my degree in vocal performance and minored in Jazz. I began voice lessons myself when I was eight. I am a mezzo soprano, and can teach both female and male voices. I have performed in several opera productions including but not limited to The Marriage of Figaro, Dido and Aeneus, Tenderland, and Hand of Bridge. I have worked and performed in masterworks by Brahms, Chopin, Mozart to name a few. I studied in French, English, Spanish, Italian, and German. I studied diction, ear training, piano, music history, pedagogy, and music theory. I have also performed with artists such as New York Voices, Bobby Mcferrin and Kurt Elling. I was blessed with many learning opportunities to grow in my passion and I would love to pass that knowledge and passion to anyone who wants to learn.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are de
signed around the needs of each student. The first lessons is always spent testing range, knowledge and abilities already known by the student. Then the student weighs in on what kind of music they would like to learn and what they hope to gain from the lessons. Theory and ear training are incorporated into the lessons. We work on breathing, technique and style. Generally we start with English or Italian. We work on vocal performance from a classical standpoint but Jazz and Broadway can also be taught if desired by the student. Scales and exercises are given each week to be worked on until the next lesson. A recording device is encouraged if the student cannot play the piano. Also, a voice note book to take notes during the lesson to be used during practice during the week.

classical voice, jazz voice, musical theater, audition preparation

About Josh L.

Indianapolis, IN

View Full Profile

I teach singers of all genres (country, classical, pop, bluegrass, rock…) to sing with confidence and freedom!

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.

About Josh
I am a professional singer, pianist, songwriter, and recording artist. I graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University with a Bachelors of Music, specifically voice.

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano for 16 years, and contemporary keyboard for 7 of those. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

As a professional recording a
rtist I frequently take trips to Nashville for co-writing, recording, and meeting with record labels. I have written with well-known writers like Mia Fieldes from Hillsong, Tony Wood from Provident Label Group, Stu G from Delirious?, and Jon Steingard from Hawk Nelson. I love to mentor students who want to become effective, dynamic songwriters.

My personal passion is contemporary music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

My name is Lucas. I have nearly 10 years of experience in many different forms of teaching. I have taught elementary through high school chorus, voice and piano lessons, college, and much more.

I went to Oklahoma City University for all 3 of my music degrees. OCU is one of the top performance colleges in the country. I also taught voice and choir there for 2 years. I would love to assist you on the deeply personal and frequently difficult and emotional journey that is learning your natural born instrument.

Lucas has the ability to instruct beyond technique. He is outstanding at that, having successfully expanded my son's vocal range and improved his breathing as well as singing from his core. But equally, if not more important, he has allowed my son to relax while performing. Lucas knows how to help his students manage the tension associated with performing. We all know, whether we are performing in front of an audience or making a presentation to a client, we need to be in the right frame of mind to perform at an optimal level. Lucas teaches his students to be better prepared mentally for a performance.

I’ve been learning from Nathan for some time now. And the difference it has made in my technique, musicality, and presentation has been tremendous! He is kind and caring teacher that always makes you feel comfortable at whatever level you go to him.

I found him while preparing for an audition for a musical theatre gig. He was quick to respond and punctual with setting up the lesson ASAP. We went through the material and his instruction helped me craft not only how to show my best self in my presentation but how to do it in a healthy, long term way. I’ve been back to him several times since. His knowledge of the voice and music is endless. He can make anyone be better and feel better about being a vocalist. I recommend him to everyone!

About Jennifer C.

Are you looking for a qualified teacher who’s available to provide tailored lessons for your needs? I’m a voice instructor offering personalized lessons and instructive services to students in the Austin area (including San Marcos, Kyle, and Buda) and online. I love what I do and have been teaching people of all ages and experience levels since 2011, always maintaining my commitment to help others discover and reach their full potential.

My goal as a voice teacher is to create a safe space for learning without judgment, a place to challenge the singer while being cheered on the entire way.

About Jennifer
Hello!

As a singer and performer of different genres and styles, I know how important it is to find a teacher who can help you understand just how singing works, giving you the freedom to sing whatever your heart desires!

I've studied voice for fourteen years, including two years of vocal pedagogy (the study of how to teach vocal technique). My students have gone on to place high in competitions, including three students who made first chair at the state level in the Texas All-State Choir auditions. I'm happy to see growth in every student, and it's not limited to competitions. Students can expect to see growth in their voice after the first lesson, which covers the foundations of singing technique.

In my lessons, I help you uncover the mystery of the voice so that you are prepared for whatever you'd like to improve: breath, posture,
placement, range, and performance practices. My knowledge is based in classical technique, which is backed by centuries of old-school teachings, and modern scientific discoveries, using exercises and information that are useful and skill-building. Every singer is unique, so it's my job to help you discover what works for you.

My goal is to create a fun and safe space for learning without judgment, a place to challenge the singer while being cheered on the entire way.

La Mesa, CA

Singing has been a passion and a form of artistic expression for me since the age of five. Trained by both male and female established vocal coaches in the genres of Opera, Broadway/Showtunes, R&B, and Soul, I believe that it is vital to keep an open mind to the teachings of professional vocalists at all levels and styles to fully harness the potential of your voice.

Sessions will be tailored to the student’s individual style and experience level. No prior singing experience is needed to begin harnessing the power of your voice. Furthermore, no single training session will be the same. Each lesson is completed with the student's vocal health and unique style in mind, building off of previous lessons, and focussing on areas of improvement where necessary. Students will work on breath work, facial positioning, and exercises developed to strengthen tone, widen the range, and improve pitch. I am constantly explicitly stressing the importance of expanding knowledge on ways to improve ...

About Citlali
I started singing lessons at the age of five. My first vocal coach was a man who worked as a professional vocalist in various Broadway shows. Many of his techniques are still extremely useful today, and can be practiced by those at all levels of experience. My second vocal coach was an established Opera singer, a lead soprano of the Boston Opera. She taught me how the style of exercise has nothing to do with the genre of which you sing, but the mechanics of your voice. My third vocal coach has sung with some of Motown and R&B’s biggest artists, and has stressed and ingrained in me the importance of how less is more when expanding the vocal range. She has also worked with both Mariah Carey and the late Whitney Houston.

While performing recitals across the city of San Diego, I had the honor of collaborating with an accomplished music produ
cer, Jason Brauner, at the age of 12. We co-wrote and recorded a number of songs, of which a couple were donated to an album of which proceeds were donated to victims of domestic violence. After working with Jason for about 5 years, I was signed to a record label in Los Angeles, at the age of 17 and worked with international producer Jean Michel Soupraya. Today, I am currently a lead singer for a San Diego based Reggae band, and have performed with this group at venues such as the House of Blues, Tin Roof, Hard Rock, Music Box, and more. I am constantly explicitly stressing the importance of expanding knowledge on ways to improve the voice not only for my own personal growth, but for the progression and improvement of my students.

I look forward to our future lessons.

XOXO
