I teach voice using the Bel Canto technique. This technique concentrates on breathing, proper placement and open space, making sure students produce a free and relaxed sound.
Born in Moldova, lyric soprano Galina S. has emerged as a young artist of remarkable versatility and great vocal beauty. “Galina possesses a most glorious soprano voice… her contributions to music have always been of the highest caliber, amply demonstrating her vocal and intellectual flexibility and accomplishment… she is a great singer and performer.” (John Shirley-Quirk, International baritone) Ms. S’s impressive voice and sensitive musicianship has lead to performances in numerous cities in the United States as well as Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Israel, Moldova, and St. Petersburg, Russia.

I am classically trained, and can teach this technique. I have had some experience working with young adults who had the goal of improving their singing for choral settings and possibly solo work.
Having graduated from Westminster Choir College, I have learned many techniques for helping students to understand their voices better. I have taken voice lessons myself since 2002, and still do take them. This gives me the opportunity to learn new and different techniques. As every student is different, there are many different techniques that can help the student to find their voice. One style of teaching that I really feel is important when discussing the voice is the idea of just singing. Often times, as was my experience, when people hear voices they like they will mimic that sound. The problem with that is that the person will start singing with a voice that does not work with their body. That is usually my first goal if they have this particular issue. Many times ...
Voice lessons consist of learning a solid vocal technique and singing arias from the standard operatic repertoire. Students learn to sing in Italian, German, and French, in addition to English. For beginners, Italian art songs and German Lieder are introduced initially, learning first to sing classical repertoire.

I have been teaching for about two years, while I was getting my Master's at Rice University. My students find me to be incredibly kind, fun, dynamic, specific and supportive.
When I get a new student, I assess their abilities and give them five goals each week to work on in their own personal practice. Every student is different and has different needs, and I personalize my teaching for each student. I feel that teaching should bring out a student's personality and strength.
One of my many loves is singing and imparting my knowledge onto others. I have a BM in Voice from Mannes the New School for Music and a Masters in Voice Performance from Rice University. I recently worked for four months with Utah Opera and I have returned to my home, Philadelphia to Teach and Freelance. I believe that singing should be a liberating, supportive and universal experience and I hope to help my students grow as people as well as musicians. In my lessons, I teach vocal technique, repertoire, musicianship skills, stage deportment as well as acting for singing and Audition preparation.
