About Barry
Hello! A little about me... I have a Bachelors Degree in Music, 15 years of performing experience, and 10 years of teaching experience. I would love to share what I've learned to help you find your authentic sound. I try to approach each student individually vs treating everyone the same, catering to learning styles and willingness to learn. I hope to see you soon!

*** Lesson Details ***
I think everyone is born with the capacity to sing, with their own unique voice. I think often times we "get in our own way" and hold ourselves back from truly realizing our potential. I would love to help find your true voice so that you can do anything you want, whether it's singing in the shower or in front of thousands of adoring fans at Carnegie Hall!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Practice rooms with upright pianos.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If t
here is no piano, we can work from the mp3 player or a cd player and make it work!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Jazz voice, improvisation (scatting) and Broadway singing. I am also trained in Acting.

such as, science and mathematics.

Mr, Ray's comprehensive 3 step courses.

1. Learn the basics of the music language, reading and writing.

2. COUNTING. keeping time, the ruler of motion in music. 

3. Learn how to create beautiful melodies and syntax of song to discover the process of creativity with a structure toward musical thought.

Also. effective personal practice techniques and the basics of Improvisation and Composition.

About Delaney R.

Close
Baltimore, MD
View Full Profile

I began my training as a classical singer in high school, and I have spent the past decade training to be the best musician and classical musician as I possibly can be. I am a firm believer that a classical technique should be the basis of any kind of vocal training, whether or not a student's goals include singing classical music, because it is the healthiest, safest and most affective way of singing. With my experience as a singer and a vocal student and my knowledge of opera and art song, I absolutely love teaching classical voice!

About Delaney
I am a conservatory trained classical singer who has been performing professionally for eight years and teaching privately for five. I'm very comfortable teaching a wide variety of genres and tailor my teaching style entirely to a student's level of experience, goals, voice type, age and musical interests. In addition to teaching vocal technique and repertoire, I am very comfortable teaching essential musical skills such as sight singing and music theory.
As a performer, I have appeared with such companies as Washington National Opera, Baltimore Concert Opera, Lyric Opera Baltimore, The Art Song Preservation Society and Peabody Opera Theater.

As a teacher, I fully believe that you don't have to want to be a professional singer in order to want voice lessons. I love teaching students who simply love music and want to be better at it. E
ven though I'm a professional singer myself, I believe that the point should always be to enjoy singing, and whether your goal is to make money as a singer or to feel more confident doing karaoke (both real things that have brought students to me!), I want you to have fun doing it. I also want to show you that singing is a skill, and anyone can learn to do it.

*Note about my apartment: I teach lessons in my home, and I have a pet kitten. She's extremely friendly and would love nothing more than to bask in your attention, but if you'd prefer not to be around her or you are allergic, it's no problem at all. I'm happy to make sure she's kept in a different room during your lesson. All you have to do is let me know before your lesson that you'd prefer not to be around her, and you won't see her at all.

About Christine P.

Alexandria, VA
View Full Profile

Students will learn the proper Italian traditions of the Bel Canto style first and eventually how to appropriately apply these traditions to the later Verismo style of singing opera if vocally appropriate for the student.

These lessons will start with the same approach as the classical voice lessons since the same bel canto technique is fundamental and necessary to performing Verismo. We will go over what is appropriate to the various opera styles.

All singing lessons begin at age 13.

About Christine
The Exquisite Voice, Inc.

Christine is a professional vocal coach with an exceptional reputation. She is the owner of The Exquisite Voice, Inc. and resides in The Historic Parkfairfax community of Alexandria.

As a D.C. native, Christine has taught in the DMV area for over eight years. In that time she has taught hundreds of students and given thousands of lessons (including the full spectrum of learning needs).

She is considered an expert in her field for achieving high quality vocal technique that can be implemented in all legitimate singing styles. In addition she maintains a very active studio.

Christine's unique and highly effective approach to voice has allowed her to continue to help beginning to professional level students advance their technique with incredible results.

Christine is a master of vocal technique. She c
oncisely and properly diagnoses vocal issues from the very start.

She has a phenomenal ear, extensive experience in many styles and performance practices as well as a full working understanding of the mechanics of the voice.

She is not confused by the wide range and variety of various voice types, including highly unique instruments, or use of various technical approaches, style and artistic taste that can be misleading to many coaches. She can navigate easily and successfully through any of these challenges.

This type of insight is extremely valuable. Extracting and verifying what the voice is precisely doing allows for a real opportunity to work towards finding a more authentic and thus higher quality of singing that is based exclusively on the individual as a vocalist.

Therefore it is best to work with a professional who understands these challenges and fine differences.

Learning how one’s voice works optimally and fully allows for even greater flexibility in all singing ventures.

She has connected what are the absolute fundamentals to all types of singing and is not distracted by any and all variables that are expected to arise. This insight gives clarification to what exactly makes a voice authentic as well as guides students more confidently toward success.

Therefore she works immediately to address the core of vocal issues by adding what is necessary for the technique as well as removing or redirecting elements that are being misused.

This can be challenging work, that requires working honestly, but it brings extremely rewarding and higher quality results.

Personal note to all students:

I hope that you are feeling more inspired and inclined to work together after reading briefly a few of the things I can offer as a coach.

With that said, please consider that regardless of how great a coach is, it is important for the student to acknowledge that they must take command, initiative and responsibility for their instrument, including committing to the process and guidance given fully and to the best of their abilities.

You are absolutely in control and must not wait or avoid to be self-directed. Taking ownership of your voice in this discipline is a must. It is important that you feel empowered to make your own decisions as a student.

***Advice that should be heeded before considering lessons with me or any serious professional who values their work***

It is important that I address attitude, emotions and state of mind:

Please know that I am extremely generous and kind. I assure you that I am highly confident in my abilities and work. Integrity and value are a part of who I am as an artist, coach and person and you will come to find this to be a factor in our collaboration. If I don’t know something, I say it.

I offer all my insight and expertise to my students. That is why I think it is important to understand and possibly workout and thus finally accept what is being asked to build a successful working relationship.

I absolutely understand, appreciate and sympathize even that we are all coming from somewhere and with that said please keep in mind:

Learn to not judge yourself while you are sorting out your technique. Be completely open to reworking every aspect if necessary without feeling defeated. Reserve judgment and do not assume something is not for you regarding technique if you have not fully mastered it yet in application and comprehension.

That type of opinion is reserved for professionals who have both mastered and understand the technique only. Until then it is important to accept that you need to keep working and stay humble and positive.

***Your emotional state of mind and attitude absolutely matters. Do not underestimate the influence of your mind on your body. We are not aiming for perfectionism, we are aiming for personal excellence!***
Part of that is being absolutely willing to try the way I am asking and trusting it is only for your benefit and giving yourself the room necessary to work this way. You don’t have to come here perfect by any means, please don’t think this. You just have to be in reasonable enough shape to work productively.

Perfectionism leads to disappointment and limited thinking that undermines progress. You must be open, resourceful, adventurous and experimental in your singing. Perfectionism will fail you in this regard. I am a recovering perfectionist so I know:)

You cannot offer your most excellent work if you are resistant, fearful or emotionally (exhausted) nor prepared for working honestly due to past discouragement or carrying unrealistic expectations that typically stem from not being willing to invest the time, effort, or financial means in yourself. No one can help you if these factors are put between us and things always surface if they haven’t yet. Be prepared. Know that we are all facing the same issues more or less in this journey.

That is why I suggest making amends with any and all of these factors before working with me because they will influence the outcome of our work.

Some I am sure, will immediately disagree with what I am saying and decide that this is not what they need or in actuality really want to give (themselves truly), and find another coach who agrees with what they are willing to do, even if that severely limits their growth.

This is absolutely my professional opinion and I believe it is true for everyone. I know what I am saying can sound overwhelming, but it is not. Remove the ego from the equation. It is actually realistic and practical. I am telling you that you are absolutely in control of your outcome.

My hope is that students will come to terms with the reality of what is necessary to finding success in their singing first and worry about whatever is next last and not attempt to displace their end of the deal.

Start with very small, manageable steps and say yes to what you are saying no to or battling in your mind. That is actually more exhausting than the work itself and needs to be left at the door when we work.

Other professionals might agree with you or say differently about what I have expressed to save your business. Finding others who agree doesn’t make it true. Confronting things honestly is a choice that the teacher must make as well as the student.

I say this because it is the truth and it is a disservice to you as a singer and the necessary foundation to the relationship to go into it any other way.
It is already difficult enough to find direction when we are being lead without honesty and it must begin with us.

This is exactly what every student needs to realize because this is a tremendous part of what is holding them back. If you have understood what I am saying, it is actually a very empowering message.

It might even be all that you needed to hear to find a real path to success. :)

If you acknowledge what I stated above and are willing to commit to the work, I can assure you that I promise to do my part and help you move toward success in your lessons.

If you fully follow my guidance in your mind and heart, you will eventually find your way. I am open to what a student says they initially need, but that said I tend to show my students the light eventually on whether something is truly helping or hurting. I have extremely good instincts on exactly what a person is ready to take on, but it’s typically a bit more than what they might want to do. That is because the mind is often behind the body. I have to be several steps ahead to keep the work progressive.

I always tell my students that I will only teach you what you need, not what you want, expect to learn or already know. You should be interested in this too. Please allow me to do this. I focus on fixing the weakness that we prefer to avoid while continuing to incorporate a singer’s strengths that are already present.

I understand that what I am saying is challenging for most students because it is so often the glaringly obvious aspects of our technique that we have been avoiding and battling before we walked through the door.

Know that I have faith in you and I want you to find faith in yourself because that is more empowering and valuable than millions of people believing in you. You don’t need that, you need belief in self only.

Believing in yourself with the mindset as worthy to go forward is what will help you get through the difficulties and challenges with confidence and assurance. Problems that will arise and cannot be avoided.

You will see that you will start to be led in a much different direction just by changing your thinking.

If anything I said makes you feel nervous, overwhelmed or uncomfortable because it does not align with what you were expecting, regardless of being a beginner or a professional then I say just confront it, own it for what it is and accept it because you are now ready to work at an elevated capacity.

I placed this deliberately in between my profile to make sure people will read it.

Continuation of Christine’s profile:

Christine’s extensive experience and knowledge as a professional adult contemporary vocal artist includes a highly in-depth working understanding of a range of various styles and specialties in vocal intonation that is truly hard to match by other professionals in the field.

This along with her continuous education (over twenty years) and dedication to the authentic Italian traditions of bel canto has allowed for her to develop an approach that can extended into all legitimate styles of singing. Her personal approach to the voice is beyond comparison, and can only be described as world class.

She has a phenomenal ear and can make rapid and highly accurate assessments of technical issues in a very brief sitting. Christine is exceptional at explaining vocal pedagogy and directing students on how to make corrections for themselves.

Christine is a dramatic coloratura soprano and is very confident and experienced with large instruments (that are more difficult to train for various reasons and require more specialized training). Having an extremely rare and large voice herself has given her invaluable insight toward fully understanding all other voice types and the discipline necessary to achieve efficient technique.

Many teachers can be limited in their view and teach "their technique" as opposed to helping the student develop their own technique and what works best for them. Christine has a great talent for figuring out what a students needs to do in their approach in order to achieve the results and keep the lessons progressive.

Developing proficient technique in a complete and effective way leads toward discovering the full capacity and beauty of our instrument without compromise. We need to find our voice to find ourselves as artist.

Her methods in vocal intonation translate directly and indirectly into all styles of legitimate singing, which she coaches many varying styles and will direct student toward appropriate repertoire. Students will learn the full potential of their instrument under her guidance. It is her belief that technique should always lead toward one sounding natural, no matter the style and that one fully learns their instrument’s capability to access endless artistic choices as a performer.

Christine offers very traditional based vocal lessons with a focus on improving technique through practical exercises and song repertoire designed for each student's unique vocal needs. She will offer necessary guidance and adjustments to ensure the student's continuous development.

Her goal is for her vocal students to discover their authentic voice and to find freedom in their technique and most importantly their expression as artists.

What you can expect to learn:

Vocal pedagogy and how the voice functions properly; how to effectively think about your voice to get the body to cooperate (aurally, physically, mentally, emotionally, etc.);

Integrating the body to fully support the voice Rebounding the body to continue to move the air efficiently. These are the basics of support, but often times very apparently neglected because most trained singers/teachers from even the highest institutions do not understand how it works or do it effectively themselves. It is sadly becoming a lost art. This is the most advanced concept of singing and yet is absolutely necessary to master in order to access genuine support. Christine clearly demonstrates and explains how this concept functions and her refinement of it is by far not common knowledge.

Other important concepts covered:
Learning to create a prepared position internally in order to access the head. Head voice is found from preparing a space aiming for the center of the top of the head, releasing various internal muscles and applying the correct amount of compressed air that fits pressure wise and can be elongated to allow actual resonance and depth from the other two supporting resonators such as forward and connected into the Mask which I define separate from head voice but work together and then adding chest in agreement with these resonators. This as well as all working in alliance with the body/support and directing the air, legitimate dynamics directed from the body and compressed air, anchoring the body to maintain the larynx low, but not pressed upon, but one that is flexible, and this is relative to the singer’s current technique;

Various placement techniques, air that can rebound using breath direction and not from using the larynx inappropriately, centering the voice/cut internally by aligning the horizontal (mask) and vertical planes (chest, back of head, top of head and spine) support and placement that function together, elongating the air/suspending the body, developing a mixed middle sound that passes easily into low and high registers and broadens range why staying connected to head voice is the goal to achieve this and create power if expression calls for it and how to do this successfully/legitimately; articulation free from the jaw and using tongue and other articulators as well as using breath direction to assist, posture that is conducive for support and keeps the body open and functional; opposed to over using or relying on just your head to fix posture that typically causes the head to overly hyperextends which then cuts off potential to access the best quality resonating pathways/body alignment to achieve support. Learning the correct way to cycle through your breathing process.

Various artistic and performance techniques, musical interpretation appropriate to context, time period and style, aligning the voice and body/acting to come across accurately in our portrayals and the process behind this, memorization techniques, execution of timing for expressive reasons and ways to think about timing that doesn’t conflict with the natural structure of a song, but allows for flexibility in phrasing, phrasal development and song development.

Education and continuation of voice:

She received her music education in classical vocal performance from George Mason University and has vigiourously continued her studies in opera with Mrs. Fabiana Bravo, who studied with Luciano Pavarotti and Renata Scotto and has had a fabulous career singing at the Met. She has learned the Italian bel canto traditions as well as the Russian approach to the style. Christine specializes in Italian for classical rep.

General styles I coach:
Opera (bel canto and verismo) classical, sacred, hymnal, traditional, jazz, r&b, folk, and other variations of these popular styles.

Christine also has an international recording career as an adult contemporary artist.

Voice lessons begin at age 16-48.

Please no inquires about exceptions on age or travel, I will not respond. I teach from my home only, regardless of distance. I am worth waiting for and traveling to:)

What do I expect from students who are seriously applying:

Those who are very hard working and prepared to work on what they NEED, not what they want. Those that are motivated, passionate, dedicated, responsible, considerate, humble and serious about lessons and greatly improving as musicians should apply only regardless of aspirations as a hobby or professionally.

The most important thing necessary to finding real progress I have found is if a student is fully prepared to work HONESTLY. We must always strive to work honestly with our technique. Issues cannot be corrected when we chose to continue to avoid them.

I strongly believe that music is a discipline and this is the manner in which it will be approached during lessons. This is a teacher-STUDENT effort. Taking responsibility for your part is a must. This includes trying to the best of your abilities to put my advice and guidance into practice away from lessons is necessary to your improvement.

I am looking for potential long-term students who are willing and ready to work hard in a practical and realistic manner, regardless of experience, learning needs or proficiency. It will not work long term if a student is not making the time or effort commitment to apply the work from our lessons at home.

Singing is a long-term sustained process to develop that can absolutely not be rushed and I want students who understand this. I have very limited availability and I am only seeking serious students who have a positive, professional attitude and will value me as a teacher. You need not know anything about voice, just have a good work ethic and attitude :)

Thank you and looking forward to working together!

Warmly,
Christine Padua

Christine is a Godsend! Prior to working with her, I studied classical voice and opera with several instructors. Christine is by far the best teacher and wish I had met her sooner!

As an accomplished singer herself, she is able to identify challenging areas and help improve technique. I’m now attempting pieces with confidence that I never would have attempted previously. And, I find the sessions very relaxing and enjoyable. She inspired me to push myself further and feel like I’m getting great results! Well worth the investment.

Katie was SO nice and within five minutes I was completely at ease. She took the time to ask questions and get to know me and my goals before we started working together. We jumped right in and I left my first lesson feeling encouraged and with a better understanding of my range and what I am capable of. I gained more from one lesson with Katie than I got from four years of singing in high school! She's super knowledgeable and personable. I can't wait to continue my lessons with Katie!

I believe in the power of every voice! Unraveling the voice that is already inside of each student is the most amazing thing in the world to me. Lessons with me follow the level and interests of the student, and we aim to open the voice and the mind! My students study a plethora of genres from Classical to Pop, Gospel, or Rock. We focus on producing natural and healthy sound, and incorporate elements of performance and stage presence.

About Jasmine
Hello! I have been teaching voice and piano for five years, and I absolutely love my students! We have fun in our lessons, and we work hard which is why my students see results. My students are as young as 3 and some are retirees. I teach beginner and intermediate piano, and voice lessons at all levels. Every lesson is different because every student is different! I can’t wait to help you explore your love of music!

I am a senior in high school, and as president of the choir I direct the group quite frequently, as long as working directly with certain students. I am well versed on theory and can play out parts on piano as well as help my students to develop a mature and professional sound. I am communications officer in the music honors society and therefore I am in contact with nearby businesses and events and I can help provide performance opportunities. I genuinely love singing and I would love to work with anyone!
