Barbara P.

Memphis, TN

About Barbara

My studio is open to all ages beginning age 12 to adult. Formerly part time faculty at Rhodes College, I accepted a one year contract position at the University of Memphis and finally a position of Assistant Professor, University of Mississippi. I love teaching voice lessons; I love watching my students grow and become better performers and beautiful singers. I love to see them sing with confidence and have fun while making music. Many of my students have been accepted in the Musical Arts at Governor's School; they have excelled in the National Association of Teacher's of Singing competiti
ons and All West Competitions, musical auditions and just wanting to be better choir members. I was recently presented the TN Governors' School Outstanding Teacher for the Arts Award. As a performer, I have had leading roles in opera, musicals and on the concert stage in Tennessee. One of my favorite classes has been with Wesley Balk as he taught the "singing actor". To understand how to use gestures, the eyes, the body movement on stage makes acting fun and brings it to another level.

*** Lesson Details ***
It is most important to learn the basics of singing; we all know how to breathe, but managing the breath both as speakers and singers requires a coordination as we discover the balance of voice and breath. We strive to find that freedom of singing/speaking voice, eliminating hoarseness and eventual vocal damage. We learn to "play" with the voice and not just listen to how we sound, but to experience the art of singing, to become aware of the sensations that good singing allows, to communicate and most of all, have fun as we make progress. And yes, we sing art songs, language songs, songs from musicals and songs that encourage us, inspire us and perhaps excite us to be better today than we were yesterday. I love to see the progress of my young students when bad habits have not become so engrained. I love my adult students who work hard to embrace new ways, better ways and are not afraid to try.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio consists of a piano, a part time accompanist, and a video recorder that allows the student to bring an SD card, review the lesson and learn from it as they practice at home. The studio is separate and includes an adjoining student/parent waiting room. Assignments are made in a required notebook; music is required at the discretion of the teacher.

*** Specialties ***
The singing/speaking voice comes from the same vocal cords. I also assist with those who are having issues with the speaking voice such as developing hoarseness, unable to be heard or understood or simply need to improve the quality of their speaking tone. We hear the sound of speech before we hear the words. If the speaking voice is irritating, the audience is lost to the unpleasantness and misses the message.. There are ways to improve and develop a better presentation. I can assist you.

Beth has been extremely helpful in everything from helping us set realistic goals to honing technique to make you a better singer. Both myself and my wife have learned so much in a short period of time. Beth is a talented musician and very experienced instructor. She makes learning fun as well as very targeted in helping improve vocalists ranging from beginners to experienced singers.

Beth is a very talented vocal teacher - as a guitar player with no vocal experience Beth helped me find my natural vocal range and taught me to sing on pitch in the first lesson. After 2 lessons I am breathing correctly, have the self confidence to sing in public and helped me to become a more versatile musician. We since added my wife as well - we will continue to take lessons from Beth. Anyone serious about improving or learning for the first time would benefit from her knowledge and expertise.
