I am a classically trained singer and have been performing for over 15 years in Europe and USA.
I teach Voice since 2009.
Bel canto (Italian, "beautiful singing") is a technique that originates in the days of Italian opera where control and the tone quality of the voice were paramount.
From the beginning (and always), I will emphasize the basics -- posture, breathing, and tone production.
Your developing technique will be tested with traditional and classic songs and arias. Correct pronunciation of English in singing is built on the foundation of the simple and pure vowels of Italian. This also applies to singing in French, Spanish, German, and Russian. Further, the classical musical literature in Italian is very well suited to building and displaying great voices.

I've given successfully online lessons via TakeLessons Classroom and if you are interested here is a list with some of the advantages:
1. Quality of the teacher: I believe it is better to have online lessons ...

About Denise
I hold a Master's in Voice Performance degree from University of New Orleans and Bachelor of Science degree in Voice Performance from State Music Academy, Sofia, Bulgaria.
In 2001, I toured with International European Opera Company which performed numerous times in Denmark, France, Italy and USA.
I currently perform and teach in the New Orleans area and love to share my knowledge and experience with my students. There is so much more to performance then just beautiful vocalizing.....

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching is based on my own personal, classical training from Europe and North America. Whether it's opera, oratorio, musical theater or pop-style singing that is desired, I believe that classical technique is an essential source of proper singing that can be used to train singers of all genres.
Just like a piano, flute or vi
olin, your voice is an instrument.
The purpose of voice lessons is to help you develop a beautiful and dynamic singing voice and also to teach you to use your voice in a healthy age-appropriate way that will keep you singing for many years to come!
As your teacher, I want your lesson to be more than just singing through a few songs.
While what specifically happens during a voice lesson can vary greatly from student to student and from week to week, the overall structure of the lessons remains similar.
We will always start with some combination of warm-ups for your breath, body, and voice. Just as you wouldn't go running without first stretching and warming up your muscles, you don't want to start singing full songs without first getting your body and voice warmed up.
Warm-ups will also introduce you to new techniques for properly using your voice in a healthy and beautiful way.
After warm-ups, we will work on songs. Typically, you will sing through the song once, and then we will go through it in small, manageable chunks, applying the techniques from the warm-ups to the songs.
During the lesson we will also work on expression and acting. A song isn't just pretty notes‚ÄĒit tells a story. If it's a song from a musical, there's a specific character that sings it. It's your job as a singer to tell the story and to make it fun and exciting for the audience.
While there's a lot of hard work that goes on during a lesson, voice lessons are lots of fun! As your teacher, I am here to encourage you, support you, and guide you in your vocal studies. I look forward to working with you soon!

Hello!

I am a working, professional operatic tenor in the Philadelphia area. I have been teaching for the past 6 years in San Diego, Houston, and Salt Lake City. I have sung with many professional operatic companies including San Diego Opera, Aspen Opera Theatre, The Santa Fe Opera, Des Moines Metro Opera, and Opera de Tijuana.

My students receive world-class training as well as a highly personalized approach that ensures their goals are attained. I emphasize a foundation of healthy vocal technique. We then use those principals in whichever genre my student wishes --- music theatre, pop, rock, jazz, gospel, country, or opera. Our sessions are relaxed and fun while also focusing on key concepts and repertoire that the student wants to learn.

Whether singing is a dream job for you or you would just like to learn how to use your voice for fun, I can help you to use your voice healthily so that the only thing you need to do is enjoy the singing experience.

Dr Aria is a wonderful teacher. She is knowledgeable of course, but even more importantly Aria is a gentle, understanding, and talented teacher. I have enjoyed every moment with her and have definitely improved my vocal skills. By the way, I am myself an experienced music teachet and have never had a better teacher than Dr Aria. As I’ve said, some teach because that’s what they do, but Aria teaches because that is who she is.

Students will work on vocal technique, both through vocal exercises and through application to repertoire. Genres covered include anything to classical repertoire to musical theater to pop-style singing. All of my training will be from a classical standpoint, because it is my belief that this is the basis for all healthy singing, regardless of the genre.

About Eric

I received my bachelor's degree in vocal performance at the University of Miami and my master's degree at Northwestern University. I have lived, performed, and taught in the Greater Chicago area for two years and am always looking to take on students of all ages who are interested in classical, musical theater, or pop/jazz singing. I can also teach beginning to intermediate piano skills. Let me help you unlock your most beautiful sound!

My wife and I took 2 months of lessons from Eric and they were all great! We were both basically beginners (I had some memory from lesson that I took as a kid) and Eric helped us get started and off on the right track. He has a great/fun personality and is a great teacher. Unfortunately we were unable to keep taking lessons with him due to a conflict in scheduling. I would totally recommend him as a piano teacher though.

My lessons are tailored to each individual skill level to maximize individual students' strengths. My teaching style is based on relaxation techniques to facilitate finding the students' natural talent, helping them to discover the strength and potential inherent in their music.

About Dena
I am a long-time music educator and performing vocalist. After obtaining a degree from the Indiana University School of Music, I taught high school choir in Chicago and held the position of alto section leader in the renowned Chicago Chamber Choir. I also performed with the Marion Consort, Music Box Theater, and I was a soloist at St. Gregory's Episcopal Church. In New Orleans, I sing with the selective chamber ensemble, Krewe de Voix, I have performed at the French Quarter Festival, and I am a soloist and section leader at Trinity Episcopal Church. I have seventeen years of experience working with piano and voice students of all ages and ability levels.

In piano lessons, I ask thought provoking questions to encourage students to find patterns in music, to think critically about the music they are learning, and to develop strong au
ral skills. We focus on technique and theory, but never at the expense of enjoying the experience of playing and learning.

In voice lessons, I specialize in developing beginning-level singers by focusing on breath, posture and aural skills as well as cultivation of vocal quality. If you think you "can't sing," I look forward to proving you wrong!

us Shades of Praise Interracial Gospel choir.

On the journey of developing your true voice, I understand how to coach appropriately for a variety of singing styles beyond classical including broadway, jazz, pop, blues, country and gospel. I will help you integrate the fundamentals of proper tone production, accurate rhythm, diction and interpretation across genres. If you are interested in the classical genre, I am well equipped to coach Italian, German and French diction and would love to help prepare high school students who may be preparing to audition for college music programs.

Due to medical circumstances, I had the agonizing and humbling challenge of losing some of my vocal ability and I went through the process of rebuilding my voice. I am committed to making sure my students at all levels sing healthfully and sustainably. If you are someone who has experienced vocal damage, I am happy to work with you to healthfully rebuild your instrument.

In addition to my singing, I have a career in eLearning and understand how to make learners feel comfortable and authentic in an online learning environment.

If you are in the New Orleans metro area, I have a comfortable home studio with piano and great acoustics or I can travel to your home within a 15 mile radius.
