As an adult with no singing experience ever, I was quite nervous to try my first singing lesson. Naara put me right at ease from the very beginning and made me excited to come back. Her advice is spot on and delivered in a very supportive way. I learned a lot and gained so much confidence with my singing in very little time. I would highly recommend Naara for voice lessons.

Very Attentive and not afraid to give honest opinion!

Naara was very attentive in listening to my needs. She pointed out my strengths and weaknesses. After failing to get an interview with my church worship director to be a worship team member, Naara reestablished my confidence in my abilities. She is helping me with breathing exercises that will help me achieve my goal of singing the National Anthem at a sporting event. Within the next week I will be in a studio to make a CD of singing the National Anthem for audition with the Seattle Mariners. Thanks Naara!

Evan G. Seattle, WA

Beginners-
It's time to find and strengthen the essential source of a strong voice, the diaphragm. We will accomplish this with a series of breathing exercises, stretches and stances that will contact the proper muscles and regions of the body required to produce a strong, controlled and healthy singing voice.
Then we will find your range; the span of notes in which you are most comfortable singing. Once established, we will strengthen and expand your range.

Intermediate-
If this is your category, you've sang in bands, choirs, open mics, you probably play an instrument(s) and you've maybe already taken a lesson or two.
First, we'll take a look at your strengths and weaknesses to weed out any bad habits. Then we'll talk about the style(s) you wish to sing; songs, artists, your own personal twist and build up from there.

Advanced-
You've taken lessons, you perform live, you've been singing for a long time and you need professional assistance to achieve your next goal as a ...

I'm an intermediate guitar player looking to move forward, and with Evan, even after just a handful of lessons, I made serious strides with my playing. A very talented guitar player, an acute listener, and a very patient teacher. I highly recommend him.

I have found /Evan to be very easy to relate to. He listens to what you have to say, and tailors his instruction to your level and your goals. He very obviously knows what he is doing and is able to relate that to his instruction.

Heidi is very knowledgable in teaching classical vocal techniques.

I didn't realize how much Heidi changed my breathing techniques until several months later when the choir members I sing with told me that I was projecting my voice over all of the altos and all of the tenors. Her ability to demonstrate and teach great vocal range and tone is amazing.... She does require that her students practice these techniques at home and is also open to your needs and desires.

Don't Miss an Opportunity to Learn from the Best

Heidi is not only excellently trained and incredibly knowledgeable, she is personable and a great friend. In the lessons, you can expect instruction not just on singing a song, but on the mechanism of your vocal chords, the way sound works, how to translate classical singing and correct technique into pop and other styles of singing, how to perform and be engaging, and a myriad of other skills and techniques.

It bears repeating, do you ever think "I can't or don't want to learn how to classically sing Opera... who sings that way anymore?! I want to learn how to sing 'for real'"? If you do, you'd be like so many other students who don't understand the correlation between pop/modern style and classical training and you'll miss out on an incredible opportunity. You will learn how to breathe correctly, use your voice in a way that will leave you singing for the rest of your life, and techniques to reach those notes that you thought were impossible. Don't let those thoughts stop you from taking lessons with Heidi. I can honestly say that the techniques I learned with Heidi over 2 years ago, I still use to this day and I'm singing all the time! (In private and in performance). I can sing longer and better than many other peers just because of my lessons with Heidi. I know how to use and treat my voice.

She will stretch you to the point where you sometimes feel like you're going to break, but she will always be there to encourage and push - she knows the exact balance! Along with her impeccable skills, talent and knowledge, she is a friend to her students.

Personally, I had gone through some very emotional life events and once or twice she would even say "Let's just go for coffee" because I was obviously not focused on singing that day.

I can't stress enough how valuable and instrumental she has been in my life. Don't miss out on taking lessons from the best!

A Voice-Transforming Experience

Through 4 years of study with Heidi, I can honestly say her teaching has completely transformed my singing voice. Whereas before, I had poor pitch control and a thin, breathy tone, Heidi has taught me technique that has changed all of that for the better. She is a true master of her craft, which both inspired and challenged me to be the best that I can be as a singer. For those who want to be serious about improving their vocal technique and musicality, I could not more highly recommend Heidi as a voice teacher!
