All styles of singing: I use the bel canto technique for all styles, and all ages and levels.
I am known as patient, funny, and no-nonsense! An "un-teachery" teacher that uses plain language to get results for you VERY quickly.
Even in the first lesson, I'll get you making sounds easily. As you progress, you'll be amazed at the power and consistency that comes out when you work on your songs, and perform them!

About Molly

WHO ARE YOU? You are the future star of a Lin-Manuel Miranda show, if he would just write about your life for a change! You are a business owner whose voice is tired at the end of the day (*cough* singing lessons strengthen speaking *cough*) You're a player who's on the way to becoming a sin

Awesome as always!

Molly is an amazing teacher, overflowing with enthusiasm and encouragement. I'm an amateur singer, and just wanted to take lessons to improve my singing a little bit so I could be better at musical improv. She helped reconnect me with my love of singing, and now I want more.

Great teacher! She was able to teach my daughter in 3 lessons what her band teacher couldn’t do in 6 months. My daughter walked away after her first lesson excited and couldn’t wait for her next lesson. You can tell Charis loves what she does.

In each lesson, I will identify immediate issues then put you on a weekly regimen to move you toward vocal balance.

I use Gary Catona’s Vocal Building technique to improve your muscular strength. After that, I will use a two-fold system of vowels (Catona) and consonant-vowel speaking combinations (Bauer) to balance your voice by training the articulators to work in tandem with your vowel placement enhancing your natural sound, support, and create balanced breath pressure.

Specific to learning the Catona Method:
This is an intensive vocal workout learning the fundamentals of Gary Catona’s Vocal Building method. We will cover all mouth positions and how to execute each exercise properly. It usually takes two 1 hour lessons to get a grasp on the Basics.

*Please note I do not have to teach you the Catona method, but I highly recommend trying it.*

Practicing is imperative to building your vocal muscles, stamina, breathing, support, and performance skills.

Ms. S. has a Master's degree in Vocal Performance from Eastern Michigan University and is certified Level III in the Somatic Voicework™ The LoVetri Method. She has also trained in Estill Voice through the University of Michigan, with additional training in the Feldenkrais Method of movement. She is a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS). She will tailor your vocal development to your individual performance goals.

Singing is a complex coordination of breathing, phonation, resonation and articulation, overlaid with musical and performance layers. This process needs to be guided by an instructor who is knowledgeable in the vocal processes and anatomy, as well vocal styles and performance. Vocal development progresses as the body strengthens and growing musical skills demand more from the vocal instrument. We'll work together to create a voice which works freely to express the musical and emotional demands of the literature, allowing the joy of ...

Arezu T.
This was my daughter's first class, and she loved it.
My daughter was trained in opera, and was looking for a teacher who will help her do the transition to musical theater. Well, she has found such teacher.
Ms. Barbara not only has the educational background to help her, but also has a wealth of knowledge thru her personal experience as a musical theatre performer.
Personally, I do not think that we could have found her without the help of take lessons.com because we live in another city. Thank you,

My job with vocal training has always been about finding your voice. Not Beyonce, not Carrie Underwood, not Kristin Chenoweth or Blake Shelton, but you. Your voice. That's what being in a lesson with me is all about. Finding your voice and your sound and embracing the amazing vocalist that you are.

Have you always wanted to sing but feel stuck? Do you beat yourself up for not sounding like people on the radio? When you try to hit high notes, do you feel like your sound is either strained or breathy, if the note comes out at all? Are you fine singing on your own, but struggle when you try to accompany yourself on an instrument? Do you find yourself choking up in front of an audience or constantly running out of breath? Have you told yourself that some people just have talent, and maybe you just can't sing? *spoiler--not true!*

If this sounds like you, you are not alone! I've been there. I spent years working against my own voice to try and sound like my idols, until I found mentors who helped me learn otherwise. Using my background in classical music, choral singing, and jazz/contemporary training, as well as over 7 years' teaching experience, I will help you work WITH your voice, not against it, to get the sound you want. Together, we will uncover the strengths of your own ...

"Susan is an excellent teacher because she tailors her approach to the student's needs and goals, regardless of the student's age or experience or what their ultimate goals might be. Singing is not one-size-fits-all and different people learn in different ways. Susan is very sensitive to that. In my case, she mixed exercises from a number of sources with her own techniques and guidance to help me develop some good habits and techniques and ultimately find my natural voice. I can be very hard on myself, but I always believed I could reach my goals with Susan."

My daughter gave me a TakeLessons.com gift certificate at Christmas for what she thought were guitar lessons but I took singing/voice lessons instead (I don't really read music but I've always thought I could sing a little!). I've only had a few lessons, but so far Keely's been great. I was up front about never singing before and she was right on the money with starting me with basic breathing exercises. Just signed up for more lessons and I'm really looking forward to actually seeing if I hold a tune or not!!"
