I’ve been working as a professional opera singer for 10 years, studying technique, languages, breath support, and everything else that goes along with being a professional performer. I want to share my knowledge with you so that you can improve in all those areas with your own singing, and more!

While I personally specialize in classical singing, all types of singing start with the same basic techniques, and I can help you improve yours, whether you sing opera, jazz, musical theater, or pop.

About Alexandra
I am a professional opera singer with a love for languages. I graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University with a Bachelors in Voice, and went on to study opera performance at the Opera Institute at Boston Universities. Since then, I've been working as a singer for over 10 years!

I have to sing in a lot of languages for my job, and I'm here to give you some of the tools I use when mastering pronunciation for your own accent reduction pursuits.

I am also a writer and lover of the English language (my mother is a lifelong English teacher), and love sharing this tough-to-master language with others.

A lot of the skills I have as a singer are so helpful for learning how to pronounce languages correctly AND how to support your voice to keep it healthy.

I can also help you in your own singing development and improvement! I can teach you
basic and advanced technical exercises to increase your breath support, tone quality, and overall musicianship.

I look forward to meeting and working with you!

I’ve known Alex as a friend and colleague and can highly recommend her as an efficient and compassionate teacher. Her ear and skills in multiple languages from operatic training makes a great asset in helping students towards an accent free speech pattern!

My goal is to use vocal exercises and techniques (mostly from my classical background) designed to use your voice effortlessly and in a healthy way. Singing should always feel good and feed you with good energy. Those exercises will teach you to free your voice and sing to the best of your possibilities without hurt and always with ease.

About Emilie
Love to sing? I am available to teach private lessons or group lessons. My goal as a voice teacher is to help you find your own voice and sound in a healthy way. For the past 12 years, I have been dedicated to singing. I am fascinated by the multiple facets of the human voice and its extraordinary power to communicate, inspire and heal.

Professional singer and touring artist, mostly working on the jazz and contemporary classical scene in New York, I also have my own solo voice project. I use loops, samplers and electronics to build songs on the spot (Village Voice 10 best Concerts of the Week.)

I have a BFA in Jazz Vocal Studies and a Certificate in Somatic Voice Level 1. I also teach music in French for children. I am a student for life myself and I always keep studying new techniques to enrich my lessons and help my students in
the best way. My rule number one is to be open minded and patient. Every student is different and has specific needs that can be addressed with the right technique.

I love to teach any level, from beginners to professionals.

Together we will work on:

- vocal technique to open your possibilities as a singer in a healthy way
- breathing and posture through yoga and relaxation exercises to free your voice and body
- musicianship: ear training, sight reading
- improvisation
- composition
- recording: record your own song
- repertoire (build your own repertoire, chart writing, arranging, transposing tunes)
- electronic device (loops, samplers)
- music toys
- audition preparation
- performance and stage preparation

I love to teach as much as I love to perform and I am always very inspired to meet new students and to help them develop their creativity with their own voice and sound.

Vocal technique and song preparation will be our focus. We'll also cover how to play the guitar while singing.

About Brian
I have been playing guitar for 30 years. I am a state certified K-12 music teacher with over 7 years experience teaching guitar privately and in the classroom. I teach not only children but also adults of any level - beginner, intermediate, or advanced. Students can learn acoustic or electric guitar, and fingerstyle or pick playing. 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.

"I like Mr. C. because he always cheers me up if I do something wrong on guitar. He helps you through step by step." -- Aaron, age 9

"I would emphasize your patience with me and your ability to simplify coursework." -- Fedja, age 37

"Excellent teacher with lots of patience. Kick-started me into the musical world and inspired me to learn gu
itar and start singing." -- Angelina, age 16

*** Lesson Details ***
Each lesson will begin with tuning the guitar and warm-ups. Then we'll move on to either our practice books or a song or piece you have chosen to learn and study not found in the books.

If you are beginner, we'll start with how you handle the guitar and any technique issues. Then we'll work on note and chord recognition, the ability to sight-read and play from memory.

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.

*** Studio Equipment ***
-Petrof upright piano
- Mackie PA system
- Guild F15 acoustic guitar

*** Travel Equipment ***

*** Specialties ***
Patient, creative, flexible and fun.

I have learned so much in a short time.

Raleigh, NC
View Full Profile

I have a simple, no-nonsense approach to vocal training, helping students build the vocal strength and coordination necessary to sing efficiently, using principles and exercises learned through over a decade of intensive vocal study in NYC.

Please be advised that I expect students to learn their music on their own (although I'll certainly give you some learning strategies, help with tricky passages, etc.). If you are looking for someone to "teach you the notes," I'm probably not who you're looking for. But, if you want to learn how to sing well and are willing to put in the work, I'd love to help you achieve your goals!

About Ted
My name is Ted D. and I have been teaching private lessons in both guitar and voice for over a decade. I began playing guitar at age eleven and continued into college, where I majored in guitar performance. While in college I began studying voice seriously, adding a vocal performance major to my degree. I moved to New York City for additional vocal training, and sang leading roles in many opera productions in the NY/NJ area.

I currently serve as Director of Music and Worship at HOPE Presbyterian Church in North Raleigh, and my performance experience ranges from playing and singing in rock bands and as a solo acoustic act to performing in opera houses and concert halls with symphony orchestras. Whether teaching guitar or voice, I focus on developing proper and efficient technique with my students that enables them to perform in a wide r
ange of styles and performance venues.

“If you can sing opera you can sing anything.” This is something I learned while taking vocal lessons with Ted Dougherty. Many voice teachers aim to silo you into one style of singing but that is not the case with Ted. He will help you build your voice to be the strongest it can be while encouraging you to practice and sing the types of music you are passionate about. Ted is an extremely talented musician who not only has the knowledge to teach you new techniques, but also has the ability to demonstrate those techniques. I started voice lessons with him when I was 12 years old and only ended my lessons with him when I went away to college years later. I truly believe, were it not for my lessons with Ted, I would not have the quality voice I have today. If I lived anywhere near Raleigh, NC, nothing would be able to stop me from going for voice lessons with Ted as often as possible.

If you are a singer, do yourself a favor and get lessons with Ted! I took voice lessons with him for two years it's been quite the game changer. I've been a singer since I was 6 and have had a lot of different vocal training and Ted's lessons were unlike any other. I never expected the techniques. They are designed to make you re-conceptualize how to make the sound until your voice is in the right place. The first few months of lessons were unlearning and really strange because it seemed like he was telling me to make ugly sounds most of the time. Later I realized how foundational and fundamental these practices are for a strong and healthy voice. If you stick with it, and practice regularly on your own, you will be able to do what you thought was not possible with your voice. Like perform Queen of the Night, or Defying Gravity, or Carry Underwood. It's been amazing to transform my voice so drastically, and I would never have gotten there without these lessons.

About Rodolfo
Vocal results & Artist development

FAQ

Can anyone sing?

Yes, singing is a practice that involves muscle development, coordination, and flexibility as well as musical understanding through ear training. I have effective methods to identify issues and solutions to achieve your singing goals.

How long will it take to see results?

It depends on where we stand and where we want to be. Goals should be set depending on the strengths and limits of each persons voice. The time of improvement can vary form the first lesson to years ahead depending on that goal. Normally 6 months with consistent training will get the muscles used to the exercise to perceive improvement.

Is online better than in person?

Online is bringing great benefits to my students: no cost or time of transportation, sing at your personal space, set your singi
ng spot with the tools you need. I have identified more focus in online sessions. On the other hand, in person allows us to record at the studio and play music live.

Will you take me to stardom?

I am a professional singer with experience in major record label deals, touring, live performance, songwriting, music production and TV appearances. I made many mistakes in my career and some very good decisions as well. All I can do, if that would be the path you’re pursuing, is to cut the learning curve for you, support your efforts and warn you about the consequences of your choices.

Am I too young or too old to sing?

I’ve had 70+ years old students still achieving results as they learn that music has its logic behind it and not only raw talent. I would recommend starting lessons not earlier than 6 or 7 years old unless the kid is super interested and focused and has evident natural ease but I’ve also seen 5 year olds who have a clear vision for this. Beyond age, interest and focus makes you the best candidate for my program. Uninterested people tend to have slow if any results and goal driven people prove to have better results even if they don’t perceive themselves as naturally talented.

What genres do you teach?

I don’t teach genres, I reinforce them. I try to use the best singers I know as reference regarding technique, creativity and style but If a singer has a very unique style I try to encourage their uniqueness.

What comes after I sing well?

Songwriting, producing and releasing music. Collaborating with other people and performing live and I will assist in all those areas when we get there.

Am I too bad for singing?

I believe anyone can find themselves in music. The minute you sing to express and not to impress the game changes. It is true that some people have more ability and ease for singing, call it physical attributes or innate understanding of music but success lies in what you do with what you have and celebrating your uniqueness and identity. Not all great singers are great artists and not all great artists are great singers.

Am I too good to get a vocal coach?

Vocal coaches not necessarily are better than you. Like athlete coaches, vocal coaches are there to assist you, know about your voice status, range, capabilities and weaknesses. They assist you to find the best key for the songs you perform, keep track of your trainings, accompany your songs, assist in producing, arranging and songwriting and know you at a personal level where you can express openly. They are honest and objective with you both when you feel like you’re a voice God and when you’re feeling worthless.

Do I need to dream about stardom to get singing lessons.

No. You set your own limits. I have many clients from real estate, finance, technology and many unrelated industries which just love music, want to develop their emotional expression or simply have a personal challenge. I’ve even coached people to improve their verbal communication skills for sales. I’ve seen some impressive talents that will forever remain hidden and I respect that. (If you ever change your mind I can still help though)

About me

I have been teaching singing for 9+ years. I've enhanced singing lessons into a complete program of vocal mastery/songwriting/production with a blend of wellbeing techniques.

I am an active music artist, music production collage graduate, "The voice" ex-participant and vocal producer with vast experience in online music marketing.

I've been copyright stolen, false magic lesson invested, lousy contract scammed, paying to perform, falling short of budget, trading soul for fame and many other beauties of this industry in my journey to try to make a living out of expressing myself.

My goal today is to use my experience to shorten the learning curve of others. My scope is on keeping you focused on your craft and introducing you to technologic tools that will allow you to keep expressing yourself purely and make it a sustainable lifestyle or an empowering hobby by seeing progress and results.
