Singing in the City

By Sphie H. - Indianapolis Singing Teacher

Hi! My name is Sphie. I am a vocal coach and performance instructor currently based out of Indianapolis. As a music educator and entertainer, I have been studying the ins and outs of this city for many years. Though music is not a primary industry here, it is the perfect place to nurture and excel in every musical and performance capacity. So many genres are represented here and there is diversity present in every crevice of this city!

Education is such a valuable asset to our city's character, and there is every opportunity to explore and master every realm of its capacity by taking singing lessons in Indianapolis. Private lessons offer one facet of the ever-evolving fortitude of opportunities here in Indianapolis for endeavors in music. Due to our plethora of colleges and educational resources, nationally acclaimed acts frequent Indianapolis. Butler University is a host to world-renowned performances. Just north of the city in Carmel lies the Palladium. It's audio and acoustics were engineered by some of the world's finest sound engineers and is home to some of the country's best performers. Bloomington, just fifty minutes south of Indianapolis, is home to Indiana University. Known for its eclectic music scene, it hosts some of the biggest names and most foundational performances in world music and cultural history.

Feeling confident after a few singing lessons in Indianapolis? There are endless opportunities to stretch and challenge personal performance on the local spectrum for students of all levels. Head just north of the city center to Broad Ripple which has several venues and open mic nights for local and live performance. Sabbatical, one of Broad Ripple's most supportive live venues, hosts a variety of genres ranging from hip-hop to rock to jazz.

With micro-breweries and local food fare on the rise, downtown Indianapolis is home for several spots supporting new and upcoming music. Flat 12, Sunking Brewery and Indy City Brewing organizes a variety of events year-round in celebration of the city's local culture. Venues such as the Slippery Noodle and the Chatterbox Pub hold some of the oldest running jazz nights in the city with a plethora of sport's bars as hosts to some of the cities best DJs.

On the south side lies the up and coming Fountain Square, which is bubbling with an indie rock, electronic and folk scenes. Check out live performances at Hi-Fi and Fountain Square Brewery. The major metro event First Friday also takes place here. Local artists open their doors to the public in celebration of art, music and local fare. Many artists and establishments welcome new and thriving music endeavors as enhancement to the events.

Indianapolis provides an opportunity for artists to develop their skills in every realm. Despite being a large metro and bustling city, it maintains a hometown feel, conducive to nurturing the inner artist. With such a range of diversity in culture, art, and music, it gives singers and performers ample options for artistic development.

Janet B.

Indianapolis, IN

I've been teaching both piano and voice for almost 40 years. I taught elementary vocal/general/choral music in our local public school system for 32 years. I added teaching privately about 10 years later. I work with students ages 3 and up for piano, and ages 8 and up for voice. I welcome students of all levels of experience from the earliest beginner to the most advanced. The lessons are largely focused on technique, theory, and developing skills, and can be adapted to incorporate each students goals. I encourage my students to perform in various talent shows, and other avenues as they become available. We have a Recital every May, and all students are guided through the development of their selected music to take it from the beginning stages to having it ready to perform.

About Janet

Hi! My name is Janet, and I would like to be your new music lessons teacher! As a quick biography, I have 20+ years of experience teaching both piano and voice lessons. I have taught piano students from as young as 5 years old up to a wonderful lady who was a grandmother many times over, and voice students from 10 years old up to adults. I have taught students of all ability levels, from the most basic beginner to very advanced performers. I welcome you to come to my home studio. I have both a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Arts degree in Music from the University of Indianap
olis. I retired in 2009 from teaching in the Indianapolis area public schools after 32 years of teaching elementary vocal/general/choral music.
As a student taking lessons with me, I will always put your desires as a musician first, and consider them to be the most important factor in guiding the progress of your lessons. While I will make basic assignments for you to practice for your next lesson, I am always open to including music that you would like to learn. If there is a particular style of music that you would like to study, or even a particular piece of music that you want to learn, please feel free to mention that to me, and I will do my best to find that music to add to your lessons. If at any time you have questions, requests, or comments, please either mention them to me at the lessons, or contact me by phone, text, or email.
I look forward to meeting you, talking with you about your desires and aspirations as a musician, and to guiding you and helping you to reach your goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
I will work with you to find the most convenient time for your lessons. Lessons are given in my home studio. While there will be basic material you will need to learn proficiently, you will be free to select the style of music you wish to study. I always tailor the lessons to suit the student's desires and aspirations as a musician.

*** Studio Equipment ***
office/studio space for lessons; spinet piano; electronic equipment available to play cassettes, CDs, videos, and DVDs either from my own library or yours to assist and/or augment the lessons

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my piano students to own either a 3-4 octave keyboard, or a piano. They are also required to purchase any necessary materials (books, flashcards, etc.). I provide supplemental materials (teaching games, etc.).

*** Specialties ***
I use a variety of methods, mostly based on the goals of the students. For piano students, I prefer the Bastien Piano Basics method books. For voice student, I use a combination of methods developed by several different voice instructors.

Just had my first lesson and it went great! Janet is just the kind of teacher I was looking for. I am 67 and play the piano, but had not played in a long time. I want to get back to it and also learn some music theory which I never had. She is super nice, and makes you feel really relaxed. It was a very positive experience and I am looking forward to my lessons!

Josh L.

Indianapolis, IN

I have my bachelors degree in Voice. 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 contempora
ry 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 artist 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!

Blake C.

Greenwood, IN

I accommodate any student at any level, I create a personal experience to help the student with his/ her needs. I want to see the student succeed in learning this musical skill. In lessons we will learn different styles of music, with the focus on the music style of the students choice. Along side of that we will learn vocal techniques that will help with proper singing as well as vocal wellness. We will also learn music theory in lessons. I am very flexible and I like to create a personal, friendly environment.

About Blake

I have been singing and playing piano since I was 7 years old. I started teaching piano and voice when I was about 12 years old. Not long after that I began to get very involved with community musical theater. During this time I was classically trained in voice as well as piano. I studied music in college, where my focus was in vocal performance. During that time I learned a number of instruments such as percussion, strings, some wind and brass. I teach beginners level of strings. I also teach classical level piano and voice. I work with music for theater auditions as well as competition music
. On a different note, during high school I ran track, so I can help with training for running. On the academic side, I did very well in English and basic Math throughout school. During lessons I cater personally to the students needs, my goal is to help them learn the skill and not discourage them with it. I like to make learning anything exciting and fun while in a structured atmosphere!
