About Shauna
Singing is a calling for me and has been since the age of five when I used our family fireplace as my stage (when it wasn't lit!) While pursuing music studies at Ithaca College where I studied voice with Patrice Pastore and Vocal Jazz Improv with Steve Brown. My professional life as a vocalist has allowed me to explore a variety of vocal styles from classical, jazz, rock and R&B. Recently I have performed with WoodyGeissman (formerly of the Del Fuegos), Ken Shano, John Funkhouser and Victor Belanger

*** Lesson Details ***
I will teach you first and foremost how to relax your body so that you
are able to use it as a vessel to enhance your natural sound. You will learn breathing techniques that will serve to boost and promote a healthy sound. We will also learn a bit about ear training and harmony. Most importantly, we will find a safe place inside yourself where imagination can thus play a key role in forming your artistry as a vocalist. We will not be afraid to explore. It is my hope that you will sing and soar like a bird.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a sound system and microphone if you are interested in learning proper mic technique

*** Travel Equipment ***
microphone, amplifier

*** Specialties ***
I teach in all genres including rock, pop,classical and vocal jazz.

Great Singing Experience

Shauna is a very talented singer/teacher. She focuses on her student and builds up self-awareness and singing confidence. The singing studio inside Shauna's house is sunny and cozy. It creates a positive atmosphere during lessons. Singing lessons with Shauna are very therapeutic. Shauna puts a great emphasis on not just singing, but singing with your heart and soul. I definitely recommend Shauna as a teacher to anyone who wants to take singing classes.

About Daniel
I love to sing, and I love to teach. Private lessons are a great place for both. Whether you're already passionate about music, or just dipping your feet in the water, I can personalize lessons to meet your needs. For me, seeing a student grow as a musician is a reward in itself. But the biggest rewards should be yours: a stronger voice, a deeper understanding of music, a whole body involved in making music, an enjoyable effort, and a growing independence to handle musical and technical difficulties over time.

My background:
I am an experienced tenor vocalist, with over 11 years of pri
vate vocal study, a BA in music from Williams College, and further study in vocal pedagogy (how to teach voice) with a Longy professor. I sing currently with the Cantata Singers, Labyrinth Choir, Stämbandet, MetroWest Choral Artists, Terpsichore, . I have taught voice on faculty at Camp Encore/Coda, music composition with Classroom Cantatas, and private voice lessons out of my home studio, currently in Somerville. I've also taught for 2 after school programs and 3 summer camps. I've studied piano, both classical and jazz, for a total of 15 years. I have studied a variety of musical topics at college, from theory and composition to singing and conducting, to music technology, recording and engineering. I've performed and directed in diverse styles ranging from early music to broadway musicals, jazz to classic rock, American to Swedish.

*** Lesson Details ***
Your voice is simultaneously the most natural, intuitive instrument we know, and among the most complex. Every person's voice is unique, so lessons are not about fitting your voice to some imagined ideal. Rather, lessons are an opportunity to learn how to utilize your strengths, minimize your weaknesses, while maintaining your own unique sound.

You'll learn how to:
- Use your breath effectively to support your voice.
- Reduce tension, to keep your voice healthy and help your voice last longer.
- Make more sound with less muscle work, through resonance.
- Involve your whole body, to produce a fuller sound.
- Make good artistic choices, which reflect your own unique perspective.
...and much more, according to your goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio room with full weighted keyboard and seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can reliably reach students 5 miles away, traveling by bike or public transit depending on the student's location.

I prefer students to have a piano or keyboard, though we can work without one if necessary. My keyboard is too bulky to be carried around for each lesson. If a keyboard is not available, we can work without one, and I will bring a tuning fork for starting pitches.

*** Specialties ***
I sing in a variety of styles, including classical, broadway, and jazz, both sacred and secular, from around the world. I have extensive knowledge of music theory, and 15 years experience as a pianist. Although I do not currently teach piano, my ability to accompany vocalists during lessons is very helpful for students.

I don't think we could have found a better teacher for my daughter (5 years old). She is the perfect blend of encouraging, challenging, and fun. My daughter actually enjoys practicing, which says as much about her love of piano playing as it does about Kelly's teaching style.

My daughter's first lesson with Kelly was excellent. I can tell she was nervous, but Kelly made it comfortable for her. The moment we got home, she went straight to practicing.
