Learn to sing correctly leading toward a "Classical" sound while possibly growing toward a career in Classical Music.
I am a pianist and singer who started learning to play the piano at age 6, and I love teaching all students of all experience levels. Growing up I competed and placed highly in many competitions including playing with the Symphony Orchestra in my home town of Spartanburg, SC after winning it's concerto competition at the age of 17. In college I took piano from Dr. Charles Fugo at the University of South Carolina and also started taking voice lessons from Tonya Currier and Walter Cuttino. While still in college I worked with The South Carolina Opera company for a season as a member of the ensemble and as Chorus Master. Professionally, I have worked with different theater and opera companies as a lead actor and as a musician. I have also worked in many different church positions as a musician and singer. I have many years of teaching ex
perience with piano at all experience levels.
*** Lesson Details *** I have experience teaching since 1995 while I was still in college. I primarily use Alfred and "Faber & Faber" piano methods for beginners. I teach how to read music, understand the theory behind the music, and the technique needed in a patient atmosphere at the pace of the student. I also teach you how the piano works and the different types of pianos as well as the history of keyboards used for different classical music. The lessons are geared toward the goals of the student no matter what level is desired. In teaching singing, I will teach you the basics necessary to create a healthy and relaxed sound through technique. With experience singing music ranging from classical to contemporary church music to musical theater, I can teach you how to use the voice in a way that will promote a long time of singing without adding stress to the voice. I will work with any style of music and will give you the technique and confidence needed to become a better singer.
*** Studio Equipment *** In my home studio is a piano and books with big windows to look out. Pianos are an upright piano and an Alesis Synthesiser. For online lessons you will have a clear view of the keyboard as well as myself. It will be like you are the studio with me.
*** Travel Equipment *** I expect the student to have a piano or an electric keyboard at home for piano lessons. For voice lessons a keyboard is not required but is helpful.
*** Specialties *** I primarily teach piano in a classical style using either "Faber & Faber" or Alfred Methods for piano lessons. For voice, I teach all my students to sing in a way that will be the most beneficial to the health of their voice. Doing this is helpful to all styles of singing.

I would like nothing better than to help you discover and develop your voice's greatest potential. Singing embodies many elements including proper tone production, rhythmic accuracy, proper diction and connecting to and sharing the emotional content of a song. It is a personal journey for singers to learn how to integrate all those elements into their own instruments and I will act as your trusted and supportive guide throughout the process. I have a master's degree in classical vocal performance from the renowned Manhattan School of Music and performed with opera companies in New York City. Currently, in New Orleans, I sing with the joyous Shades of Praise interracial gospel choir. I have had the privilege of studying with some of the finest voice teachers, conductors and coaches that America has to offer and I would love to share that combined knowledge with others. I have also had the agonizing and humbling experience of losing and rebuilding my voice after medical difficulties, ...

I've learned so much in a short period of time with Sheila. She is very easy to get a long with and not intimidating despite her distinguished resume. She has helped me immensely with the awareness of my voice and allowed me to explore my instrument in ways I hadn't try before. Sheila is patient and will continue to approach and explain a technique from different angles (with humour!) until it is grasped. Thanks to her I feel more confident and aware when I'm singing. So thank you very very much!
Hello! I want my lessons to be fun and enjoyable while focusing on breathe and body movement and diction. I want everyone to enjoy singing, but to also take away valuable insight into classical and pop singing. My specialty is classical repertoire, but I also enjoy teaching musical theater and pop.

Whether you are a young beginner, an older beginner, or intermediate level, I want to help work as a team and guide you to what you are looking for on your musical path.
Kristin is an amazing singer and a great instructor! I was blessed to attend a workshop at my community college where she gave classical singers advice on their singing. She is fantastic and has a fabulous voice!
Everyone chooses to take voice lessons for different reasons, but we all have to take the time to find our own true voice. I have ten years of experience helping beginners of all ages find a basic technique that helps them express themselves, entertain, and communicate with their friends, family, and larger audiences. My students have been seen on many professional local stages in musical theatre productions, as well as being accepted into prestigious university programs. A loving, creative approach with motivating joy helps students find the best in themselves and share it with their adoring audiences!

"Dani is a really special instructor for me! She helped me realize how big my passion for singing was because, since the beginning, she has inspired me wit
h her singing, passion, and knowledge. She was my teacher for 4 years and she prepared me to get into CU Boulder’s School of Music. With her guidance I improved not only my vocal technique, but my musicality, acting skills, languages, and every single aspect that a singer needs to be a professional artist. She was really specific and patient about my growth as an opera singer and she always helped me find the perfect repertoire for me. I can say that I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for her. Dani saw the best in me even when I didn’t, and I am still learning a lot from her."

ore in the future."

such a great experience that I can't wait for my next one!"
"As a classically trained violinist with a degree in Music Education (from UNT). Natasha has been by far, the best teacher and vocal coach I have ever had.
Under her tutelage, I really do feel that I've made some excellent vocal improvement over the past 6 months. She is a wonderful and enthusiastic person who is not only succinct in her pedagogical approach, but, also knows how to motivate you even when you are in doubt of yourself. She has given me confidence in my vocal ability and really takes her art form of singing seriously. I would absolutely highly recommend her!"
"The first lesson turned out fantastic. Sara was very professional and very well mannered. I noticed she is very patient and explained the technique and me
chanics in projecting nasal and/or head voice. I learned a lot in my first lesson.Thank you so much, Ms. Sara."
"Rosita was a FABULOUS teacher. I really like her. She helped me prepare two songs for an opera audition and I am happy to say that I got into the opera an
d am now in rehearsals. But, I really COULD NOT have accomplished this goal without her and I am so glad to have had the opportunity to study with her. I highly recommend her to anyone else looking to study singing."

irst lesson and each week she teaches me something new. I highly recommend her and if you want results, she'll help you get to the level you want to achieve!"
It is always exciting when a vocal student is ready to start studying his or her first operatic aria! One of the best things about being a classical singer is knowing you have so many great years ahead of you. After all, you’re considered in your prime in your 40s.
That being said, realize that the voice you have now and the repertoire you’ll first study will be very, very different from what you sing later on in your career. It’s absolutely crucial that you sing repertoire that is …
