Finding your real voice, free vocalizing, harmony, blending, improve usable range, the mixed voice. The first steps to mastering vocal freedom are the building blocks for vocal success. Whether the student is a child or an adult, with little or no training, it is my goal to make singing an enjoyable and freeing experience. Singing with complete vocal freedom and confidence can seem very elusive. Surprisingly, it's not as elusive as one might think! The steps to vocal freedom are within reach and most students experience a measure of freedom within the first lessons. Using a systematic method incorporating learning technique and songs the student loves to sing makes learning more fun and gives the student a greater appreciation of music as a whole while encouraging a passion for music that lasts a lifetime.

About Cosima
My specialty is voice but I also teach acoustic guitar, ukulele and songwriting for the student who desires to develop their own style and create their own songs. Not only is it fun but the music education that comes with it is highly valuable for future musicians. (guitar and ukulele rentals available at an additional cost to the student)

For students who are just beginning their vocal journey or are busy performers who want to improve healthy technique and sing with more confidence; or perhaps a worship leader or backup singer is struggling with vocal strain, my goal is to help them find vocal freedom and maintain an amazing, healthy voice that will confidently meet their expectations, year after year, in every situation, every time.

As an active performing vocalist, musician, songwriter, and Christian worship artist and band lea
der, I understand the demands and challenges of a busy performance calendar, singing sets for back-to-back audiences day after day and week after week, and the need for a vocalist to find the vocal freedom that will produce confidence in their voice no matter what the venue.

The first steps to mastering vocal freedom are the building blocks for vocal success. Whether the student is a child or an adult, with little or no training, it is my goal to make singing an enjoyable and freeing experience.

Singing with complete vocal freedom and confidence can seem very elusive. Surprisingly, it's not as elusive as one might think! Vocal freedom is within reach and most students experience a measure of it within the few first lessons, some even gaining a full octave in their range in their first lessons. Using a systematic method incorporating the study of good vocal technique and working on songs the student loves to sing makes learning more fun and gives the student a greater appreciation of music as a whole while encouraging a passion for music that lasts a lifetime. I encourage and teach sight reading, and theory basics especially for those students who are considering music as a profession.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each student learns with material that will be divided into step-by-step doable lessons so they can be sure to learn the best techniques and material along the way. Sheet music and lesson books are provided at a minimal additional cost.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My home-studio is bright and open and set up with an upright piano, full length mirror, music stand, iPad with appropriate applications, guitar, mandolin, ukulele, and computer for recording and playback. Parents are welcome to sit in on lessons or wait for their children in the adjacent room. I also may provide a follow-up email which includes any recordings and lesson notes from the current lesson.

As the student progresses I also provide a PA system to teach mic technique and build performance confidence.

I ask that students come prepared with the following items to their lessons.
~ Bottled water
~ A ring binder with paper for notes and a zippered pouch to keep tools and handouts.
~ A flash drive for recording transfers or they can use their phone or other recording device to record their lessons.
~

*** Specialties ***
I honestly love my students and love teaching! It's such a privilege to be a part of their musical journey. I specialize in church worship vocals, choir, a capella, show tunes and musical theater. I teach free, healthy vocal technique which enables each student to explore and focus on different styles of singing. I also love teaching young voices especially teens who want to have a good time learning to sing.

NOTE ~ My teaching style is more structured therefore some young children may not be ready to take lessons with me.

I had Cosima for a few months and I saw a change in my voice. Not only did she help me improve my voice but she was able to explain it in a way that I could understand the fundamentals of how singing happened. I had a song that I wanted to sing for my sisters wedding and if she didn't help I probably wouldn't have sang. I would like to say thank you to Cosima for helping me understand singing/vocal world. I was so new to it even though I have been singing from young age. She was able to help find my struggle in singing and we worked at it as much as possible to improve it. My chest voice and bridges definitely got better then what they were when I first started taking lessons with her. I have learned a lot and I have seen a difference in my voice. I'm really happy and blessed that I was able to have Cosima as my teacher. I greatly appreciate her teaching me. I recommend her as a great singing teacher.

(This is Kari's daughter writing the review as I am the one receiving the lessons) Jennifer is honestly the best instructor I have ever had. She's so understanding about having to reschedule due to personal issues. She teaches in a way that's very focused for your individual learning style and she's also very honest which is always nice when you're learning a skill. I love Jennifer and I would definitely recommend using her for your child.

Styles taught include classical, rock and pop, blues, jazz, folk and country. Sight-reading, music theory, and learning by ear are skills all students will develop.

This is a great lesson study for anyone who wants to sing(experienced or not).
Beginners would learn to approach their voices as instruments through breathing and use of their diaphragm. All classes would develop their ears through special exercises and harmony. More advanced singers the emphasis would be on stylings and nuances. I also try to develop them as an artist. All lessons are customized to the prospective students in addition to being a lot of fun. I've been teaching voice for about 15 years now.

About Paul
I am a musician who has played in many bands. My primary instrument is piano and voice. I also play rhythm guitar. My current group is a "Who" tribute band, performing a complete history of the rock group, The Who. Please check out our website magicbustour.com
I play by ear but also read music. If you are looking for an old school, rigid, teacher who only has students only follow books, then you should look elsewhere. If you want to be able to play or sing with feel and learn music theory with some reading in a comfortable working studio then contact me.

Megan was a wonderful voice teacher! She helped me improve my range and my breathing. Megan paid so much attention to me while I sang and she always had great techniques for improving my sound. She also chose many songs that fit my range well and that challenged me. Megan not only taught me important skills and songs, but she also was very kind and patient. Megan helped me learn songs that I brought to her, even if she already had something planned for the day. Megan was a great teacher and I would highly recommend her!

*Don't see a time that works for you? Click ASK A QUESTION button to arrange other times*
Music is a straight shot to the heart. It makes people feel. But when bad technique and pitchy singing gets in the way, the message can't get through. Learn to sing CONFIDENTLY!
Learn how to sing fluidly through your "break" so you don't have to sacrifice that big note screaming-- or going breathy. Breaks are so frustrating-- learn how to lose it here! Train your voice and get rid of cracking.
*Warm-Up
*Technique
*Application through YOUR Choice and Style of Music.

There is a MYTH That there are different genres of voice or teachers. You have ONE voice that should be able to sing in a wide variety of styles and genres. While there are many different categories of voice that I teach-- they really are all the same general principles applied in every genre to make you the best singer you can possibly be!

About Allie
Allie is a singer-songwriter, recording artist, actress and performer with no shortage of personality and enthusiasm. She has performed on stages all across the Wasatch Front. She is a Member of BYU Noteworthy, a professional touring acapella group from Brigham Young University. She has been training with Dean Kaelin, who is vocal coach of many famous artists such as: David Archuleta, Carmen Rassmussen, Julianne Hough, Fictionist and SHeDAISY, for more than 7 years. She was also trained classically by Glory Vance and Julianne Betenson. She received specific "Broadway Style" instruction from Erin Carlson.
Most recently, she released a music video in Mayan,Spanish and English language that reached more than 170,000 views. She's all about providing uplifting material and teaching her students how to truly move and change people through mus
ic.

Allie teaches both in-home and online classes, however, only the online classes are available through Takelessons.com in person lessons must be arranged personally.

Here's the basic outline of what you can expect:
Before we ever begin with your lessons we will do a vocal evaluation. We will see what areas you would like to strengthen vocally. We'll set some goals and completely customize your lessons to you and your needs.

A basic lesson goes as follows:
* Warm Up
* Learn new skills
*Apply skills in YOUR choice of style and music.

We have one voice. just like a piano can play many different styles of music, your voice can do the same if you train it properly. you should be able to sing with the same vocal quality all the way through your range without having breaks. We will work on smoothing out your range so that singing becomes EFFORTLESS. Once your singing becomes effortless, you will be free to express yourself, and get the message of your music across to your audiences. Successful music is connection to people. When you can deliver your message unhindered by vocal blips-- you will be an amazing artist!! :)

i'm so excited to work with you!

Allie <3

Allie Gardner epitomizes the future of helping others through music. As a wonderful performer with great excitement and conviction, as well as sensitivity and attention to detail, she regularly uplifts her audiences through her impressive musical abilities. She stands out as an accomplished recording artist, arranger, actress, violinist, and guitarist. Through her breadth of vocal techniques, she has the ability to successfully instruct others in the classical, pop, and musical theater genres. Additionally, her wonderful friendship to others, her dedication to excellence, and her excitement for life qualify her as a capable private vocal instructor.

Allie is seriously the best! Not only is she an incredible performer but she knows how to teach her craft. I've had voice lessons before where the teacher didn't know how to translate technique to a student level. But Allie totally knows where you're coming from! She just gets it and that's so hard to find. Honestly, I'd get on her books ASAP before she runs out of space for more students!!
