Singing should feel as easy as speech… it's that simple. No matter if you're singing high notes, or low notes, loud or soft notes, your throat, jaw and tongue should be as tension free and natural feeling as when you're speaking.

I teach a vocal technique (the way you use your voice when you sing) which allows this free and clear singing throughout a singer's range, without tension or the fear of "cracking". It can be applied to every style of music all without any strain in the voice. Any age, any experience level will advance.

The power of this singing technique is not only the result - a clear, comfortable, effortless voice - but it's also the process, a process that is natural, fun and fast. It's not full of boring technical stuff that goes on for months and years.

Before I began teaching about 25 years ago, he knew I wanted give performers a powerful singing technique that can quickly be applied to every musical style, no matter their age or experience level. It has ...

About Eric
For over 30 years, I've had the privilege to have worked with thousands of performers who study with me from all over the world. I teach in-studio at my two locations in Houston and in The Woodlands, Texas. I also work with students who come to me from all over the globe via online over-the-web Skype lessons.

Originally from Detroit, I enjoyed being a "Jack of all styles" singer/musician for over 15 years. I was a professional musician performing Classical, Jazz, Pop, Rock, Gospel, Musical Theater, Commercial and Studio work, along with being very involved in Contemporary Christian music. While I very much loved to perform, I found myself drawn much more to the joy of teaching. Vocal instruction and improvisational piano teaching eventually became my passion, and so I've poured my time and energies into teaching singers and players to
become, well… better musicians!

I have been singing in Choirs and Bands for a number of years and learned more about my voice and singing properly in a 45 minute session with Eric than I have in all my years of performing. I now understand why I have been struggling to sing in my upper register and Eric has put together a personalized program to help me develop my voice and gain back my vocal range. Eric has a great sense of humor and made the session very enjoyable as well as informative. I look forward to my next session and would highly recommend Eric as an instructor.

For my first lesson, I found Catherine to be personable, encouraging, and highly skilled. She listened to my goals, assessed my present ability (I had tried to teach myself piano. I failed.) and worked through some exercises with me to improve my skills. I found the lesson challenging but not overwhelming. I'm looking forward to my next lesson with her.

so much fun!

This teacher has a great time with her students as they learn keyboards, piano, theory, singing and basic skills on percussion and woodwind instruments. She can show beginning guitarists the chords and strums, too. We perform with the teacher at different places for youth group events, recitals, even musical theater shows. I hope I keep learning music the rest of my life.

I began my piano studies at age eight and began teaching in high school. I have a Bachelor of Arts minor in vocal performance from Brigham Young University.

I have taught hundreds students of various ages and abilities and have been involved in a number of musical groups and productions, such as Opera Scenes, Phoenix Rising, Women's Chorus, and the Cincinnati Women's Group.

My instruction emphasizes a relaxed learning environment with a focus on the student's needs.

I also encourage and teach my students how to take care of their voice and body to avoid strain or injury.

*Understanding high and low notes
*The importance of regular practice
*Following instructions

PHOTOGRAPHY
I earned my Visual Arts major in Photography from Brigham Young University.

I have run a photography business for 18 years.

I have taken pictures for weddings, engagements, senior pictures, landscapes, and family portraits.

I focus mostly on what students would like to learn.

How to manually operate a camera is a critical learning emphasis.

If applicable, we'll also talk about how to run a photography business.

MATH
With my kids, I have worked with one child who requires substantial help and another who is several levels above standard. Both have challenged me to research and learn many resources and methods to help them learn and perform math at a high level.

My goal with students is to assess their math proficiency and either help them find new ways to challenge themselves or help them learn how to be more comfortable with math and perform at an appropriate level.

I strongly believe math is critical for success in K-12 and college. My philosophy is if a student is comfortable with math, he or she will be happy at school!

I like finding learning styles/approaches that best-fit an each individual student. I feel it is important that students feel comfortable asking questions and voicing concerns.

About TIFFANY
As an teacher/Instuctor:
I believe it is important students feel they can communicate openly and honestly during lessons. As with many learning processes, singing requires practice, patience, determination, and enthusiasm!

As a singer/performer:
I enjoy singing in a variety of 'classical' genres including Opera, Art Song, Early Music, and Broadway. While the majority of my performing experience centers in opera and music theater, I also enjoy solo recitals, chamber music, and choral performances.

Background:
Originally I'm from Columbus Ohio. I obtained a Bachelor of Music at Ohio University, and a Master of Music at Texas Tech University. When not singing or teaching, I enjoy tai chi, meditation, making natural soap, cats, and being outdoors in nature.

Hailey is also a great great teacher, willing to pinpoint my strengths and weaknesses, highlight the strengths and then gently promote the weaknesses to help me be a better singer. Which is saying a tremendous amount, because my musical acumen/confidence/ability was a lot lower 2 months ago than it is now that I have worked with Hailey since then. Thanks!

Hailey has been the perfect piano teacher for our 10 year old daughter. She chooses songs, such as Disney music, that excite my daughter to learn, she establishes a structured practice schedule so my daughter makes practice part of her week, and most importantly she cares about her students and gets to know them as a person not just a piano student. My daughter looks forward to her piano lessons each week and we've seen great progress!

Another excellent lesson by Teacher Hailey. She is always so encouraging, accepting, but also "demanding" in that she insists I get better. I can be a better singer.

About David W.

Close
Saint Paul, MN

View Full Profile

I teach from a very technical standpoint. Form and function, physicality, and basic science can teach you a lot about singing properly. My goal is to get the student to a point where they can teach themselves when they build their voice and the lesson becomes a weekly or monthly check in of the progress. As singers we want good results, but we have to focus on the process and the result will follow on its own correctly without forcing the result we want. This process of optimal sound and beautiful tone can take some time, but when the steps are taken correctly, the results become ideal.

About David
David W. has made numerous appearances across the country as an up-and-coming lyric tenor. Recent roles include Count Almaviva with "requisite Rossini high notes" (The Wall Street Journal) in Francesca Zambello's new production of Il Barbiere di Siviglia at The Glimmerglass Festival and Ernesto in Don Pasquale with Minnesota Opera, where David was hailed as “a true lyric tenor with strong Italianate stylings" and credited with “the sweetest singing of the evening” (Star Tribune). As the title role in Albert Herring with Union Avenue Opera, Broadway World called David "the perfect voice for this role."

David spent two years as a member of Minnesota Opera’s prestigious Resident Artist Program. There, he sang Tamino in Die Zauberflöte, Tybalt in Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette, and debuted the shepherd Silvio in a new production of the Lorenz
o Da Ponte rarity L’arbore di Diana by Vicente Martín y Soler. Other credits as a Resident Artist include multiple world premieres including covering Larry Renault in William Bolcom’s Dinner at Eight and singing Delbert Grady in Paul Moravec's The Shining, where Opera News described Mr. W. as "equally chilling in his casual charm and suavity."

Mr. W. made his Glimmerglass debut as Parpignol in La bohème and sang the role of Count Alberto in Rossini's L'occasione fa il ladro as a member of their Young Artist Program. He also covered Reverend Parris in Francesca Zambello’s staging of The Crucible, performed the tenor solo from Rossini’s Stabat Mater, and played Frederic in a scene from The Pirates of Penzance for special guest Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. As a Gerdine Young Artist with Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, Mr. W. covered Matthew Gurney in Tobias Picker’s Emmeline, sang a Student in La rondine, and Belmonte in scenes from Mozart’s The Abduction from the Seraglio with the Saint Louis Symphony. He also sang Azor in Opera for the Young’s tour of Zemire et Azor by André Grétry and both Belmonte and Ernesto with Brava! Opera Theatre in Ashland, Oregon. David sang with Cantus Vocal Ensemble for three full seasons, touring the country and the world appearing at The Kennedy Center, The Royal Opera House of Muscat Oman, NPR Tiny Desk, and A Prairie Home Companion.
