I emphasize a standard classical approach. I thrive on good, solid technique. This will enable students to master any type of music they wish to study.

In each lesson we will vocalize, work with your posture, breathing, vocal technique and repertoire of your choice.

Every student is different, so your lesson will focus on you and your abilities.

About Tuesday
I have been singing and playing piano all of my life. I took my first music lesson I was just three years old I never looked back! After high school I earned my Bachelor of Music Performance and my Master of Music. I attended Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond. It was in Louisiana where I began my teaching career, about fifteen years ago.

After returning to Michigan, I began teaching K-12 music in both public and private school settings. I currently maintain a private studio in addition to teaching voice part-time at two of local colleges.

Classical techniques grounded in principals of voice care and bel canto singing. A natural approach is used to find the singer's individual voice. The first part of the lesson will always focus on technique and proper warm up of your voice, then we will move onto repertoire. Repertoire is selected by both the teacher and the student.

About Bridget
I have been a professional voice, music theory and piano teacher for the last ten years, and have loved every minute of it. I am originally from Canada, and went to the University of Windsor to study vocal performance. I was given an opportunity to the study principals of classical singing and musical theater. From there, I began to work as a featured classical soloist and choral singer throughout Canada. I came to New York to continue my studies, and earned a Master of Music degree in Classical Voice from the Manhattan School of Music.

I believe that singing lessons should be a lot of fun. With good technique, my students and I can team up to accomplish anything from singing classical songs and even some opera arias to popular songs and musical theater. It is my goal to help you discover your own personal voice, and build confidence
in your individual gifts. My students have gone on to study voice in college and university, perform in musical theater, sing in rock bands, children and adult choirs and even win a competition or two. I love hearing my students perform, and feel that an opportunity to sing in front of others builds confidence and ability. I take pride in arranging recitals for my students who would like this opportunity.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons with always begin with warm ups and technique. We'll also focus on an important principal topic, such as breath and support, vowel placement or expression. We'll use some exercises that I have already, or perhaps a new one just for your needs (once I get to know your voice) to help you achieve our goals. We'll then work on 1-2 songs. You'll probably have picked one, and I may have picked one. The concept that we worked on in our technique session will be applied directly to the songs you are working on. You can learn so many different things in each song, we may practice your songs, using a different goal in several different lessons.
All of my students get a chance to perform in occasional "vocal class" settings, where you can sing your favorite songs for one another, in a fun, laid back environment. All students are welcome to participate in an annual recital for their family and friends too! Piano lessons are designed to suit your needs. We can work on the basics for classical playing, read chords, jazz improv and more.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have my own music studio set up in my apartment. On teaching days, my living room can be a comfortable waiting room for parents/guardians. You are all most welcome to relax, have a cup of tea or coffee and listen to our lessons. I do ask that you do not sit inside the studio (at least not after the first lesson) as this can be distracting for your child. My studio is equipped with a music stand, upright piano, work sheets for theory, pencils and crayons. I also have a full Broadway and classical music library that students can borrow from, CD/DVD's that can be borrowed, and a New Grove Reference set.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring some music, until we assess the student's needs, then they may buy some books, while I provide the rest. I bring theory worksheets, stickers, pencils etc. If a student would like to sing/play a particular song (Broadway/pop etc) I may have it in my music library.If I do not, the student will need to purchase the music they would like to sing. The student would need a keyboard/piano in their home should I travel. I have a piano in my home.

*** Specialties ***
Classical singing, Musical Theater, Jazz, music for young children, pop singing, audition preparation, beginning music for adults.

I have a M.M. in vocal performance from the Chicago College of Performing Arts and have extensive operatic training. I teach an open throat technique (appoggio) that allows the singer to sing with freedom, and access their entire range evenly. I also work with students to develop style, interpretation, languages, and acting ability.

About Benjamin
I have extensively studied vocal performance for many years and continue to add to my own technique. I have a Master of Vocal Performance Degree from the Chicago College of Performing Arts. I currently work for a recording studio (Sound Summit Studios in Naperville IL) where I teach voice and help singers record their music in the studio. I have previously taught at The School of Rock in Indianapolis Indiana. I have administered vocal lessons to every voice type at all different levels. Several of my students have recored albums and are currently performing all over the U.S.

I have a bachelors degree in biology with a minor in art. After graduating college, I was a full-time high school biology teacher, volleyball coach, and director of the school musical. As a high school teacher, I learned first hand the kind of pressure and expectat
ions that are placed on students in order for them to succeed. In college, I was the head student researcher on a two-year lab project. I took several upper level science courses including: biochemistry, calculus, organic chemistry, calculus based physics, cell biology, anatomy, and physiology. I studied marine biology in the Virgin Islands and am CPR certified.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice lessons with me are fun and effective. You can expect to hear improved technique from day one, eventually reaching your long term goals. I begin every lesson aligning the students voice through various vocal warm ups and exercises. We then work together to pick repertoire that will suit the singer'€™s voice and they will enjoy singing. During a lesson we will also cover performance presentation, acting, diction, rhythm, musicality, style, and interpretation.

During tutoring you can expect a personalized plan based on your goals and aspirations. Since every student is different you can be assured we will come up with a plan that is designed just for you. I am a laid back tutor but will be sure to get the most out of you after our time together. Most students see at least a one letter grade improvement. My main goal for every tutoring session is student learning and comprehension.

About Amanda
I am a singer/ songwriter located in Richmond Hill, GA. I recently moved here from the Philadelphia area, but I'm originally from Long Island, NY. I love to sing and to help people learn and develop as singers. My prices are based on the amount of formal teacher training I have had. I took two semesters at Immaculata University as a music education major, however, the timing of classes didn't work out with my work schedule. While I have had extensive music training and can prove that with the training I can give, I understand that not having a degree in that field will hinder people from giving me a chance.

I have a BA in Creative Writing and an MBA in Human Resource Management. I encourage you to make the decision to help me help you. I am patient and helpful when it comes to any level of singing. I hope to be hearing from you soon!

Ann Arbor, MI

View Full Profile

I specialize in classical and operatic repertoire. I've always felt the need to express myself through song and I love to help others feel comfortable to sing whatever it is that inspires them. Whether you are singing for fun or working toward a professional career in music, I will help you establish and achieve realistic goals that will leave you feeling fulfilled, energized, and confident, all in a safe and comfortable environment.

About Kelley
**My schedule changes weekly, so if you don't see a time that works, please send me a message and we may be able to find something!**

Whether you've never had a voice lesson in your life, are looking for fine tuning, or are just curious, I'd love to help you set and achieve your goals! I've studied classical voice for over 17 years, and started teaching about six years ago. I focus on breath control, relieving body tension and any hindrance to beautiful and free sound, diction, and interpretation. I speak French, some Italian, a little German, and can also help with Czech and Russian diction.

My goal for students is that they develop the healthy, efficient, and reliable ability to express themselves through music in a safe and fun environment. I've studied with some of the finest pedagogues in the world, and am comfortable teaching
students at any stage in their musical development.

***Lesson Details***
For beginners, I like to focus on music fundamentals, including theory and aural skills, and building a solid foundation of breath management. For more advanced students, the focus will be refinement and fine tuning--whether it be working on dramatic interpretation, freeing up the sound and any tension in the body, performance anxiety, or languages. We can work on operatic, song, musical theater, and jazz repertoire, languages and diction, dramatic interpretation, and performance skills.

I believe very strongly in singing repertoire appropriate for your age and level, and will not do anything to compromise your development.

Learning to sing requires a great deal of hard work and commitment. Each lesson, I will leave the student with specific exercises and pieces to practice before the next lesson. New exercises may pose challenges, but that's part of the process! If you are struggling with a particular assignment, please do not hesitate to communicate with me, and I will guide you through it, or find an alternative to help you achieve the same goal.

We are all different, and so have different learning styles. Singing lessons should be therapeutic, gratifying, and above all fun! I don't ever want singing to turn into a chore or something you don't enjoy. This should be fun!

***Travel Equipment***
Student should have either a piano or keyboard. A CD player, mirror, and yoga mat are a plus.

***Skype Equipment***
Computer with high-speed internet. I can supply electronic files for sheet music and accompanied tracks.

***More about me***
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.

Kelley is a qualified pedagogue who exhibits that all too rare balance of consummate professionalism with a friendly personal touch. She teaches a healthy vocal technique, based on current science and traditional methods, always keeping an eye on the artistic and expressive goal. While some teachers just work on your voice, Kelley also coaches the student as they work to integrate their ideas into a musical/dramatic presentation. Kelley has trained with some of the best teachers in the United States and has a wide knowledge of repertoire both in the classical and Broadway/cabaret genres. Her extensive language skills also make her a great resource for students studying the classical repertoire specifically. I do not recommend voice teachers unless I trust their knowledge and professional demeanor implicitly.

I'm currently an Assistant Professor of Voice working in a school of music at a famous university in a major US city. Over the years, I have sent a variety of my students to work with Kelley, from ages 14-60. Across the board, they all have had a rewarding and fun experience, making significant progress both technically and in their self-confidence. I wholeheartedly recommend Kelley to anyone looking for a voice teacher.

I am a Vocal Music Education major in his Senior year at Wayne State University. I am a tenor and hold two positions singing gospel professionally, one as Tenor Section Leader of Fort Street Presbytarian, and another as a Tenor at the Grosse Pointe Memorial Church. I am also the Vice President and Section Leader for the WSU Concert Chorale, an audition level choir. I have 15 years experience singing and have studied under several very experienced teachers, the current of which is Dr. Troiano. My studio revolves around a solid technique that comes with ear training, breathing, phonation, and clarity of sound. The style I teach hinges on this foundation, and thus is greatly applicable to any style of singing.

About Dane
Greetings!

I am a current WSU student of Vocal Music Education with my principle instrument as voice (Tenor). I'm 25 years old, and a well rounded musician with a great sense of humor and a laid back attitude. This isn't to say that my lessons are all fun and games; there is a serious element to every session, but students have always give positive feedback in that they feel very comfortable with me.

I have been singing for 15 years and do so professionally in two churches, one of which I am the section leader of (Fort Street Presbyterian in Detroit). I am also the section leader of the WSU Concert Chorale, the audition level choir. For both voice and guitar, I have studied under numerous great men and women who have guided my practices to the point where I have began to pass my knowledge to others!

My studio for both disciplines fo
llow and logical and practical guideline that will allow musicianship in it's greatest form to bloom forth from the student. Heavy emphasis on solid technique, artistry, theory, and ear training makes for a well rounded and informed player/singer! I can teach from my home, your home, online, or even from the practice rooms at Wayne State if Detroit is a good middle ground or closer for you!

Thanks for taking the time to read this :)

Working with Amanda Baker during the spring of 2017 truly revolutionized the way I think about my voice. We explored techniques that enabled me to understand the ease required for singing above the staff, as well as the intricacies of resonance. The time we spent together was an amazing stepping stone for the Young artist opera program I attended during the summer of 2017. If not for our working together I would not have performed as successfully as I did. She was extremely prudent, diligent, compassionate, and encouraging. She is a grade-A 5-star teacher in my book!

Although I specialize in training for classical voice I am most interested in teaching people to sing with a technique that will serve them well no matter what kind of singing they want to do.

The most important part of any style of singing is how you support your voice to make it easy to sing, which is all about how you use your breath. The vocal training is all about keeping the voice unused.

I will concentrate on two things, breath support and placement, to make your singing efficient. This is not easy, but it is doable, and best of all once you've got it, you've got it.

I sang professionally in German Opera houses for 20 plus years as a leading tenor soloist, doing a good portion of the repertoire for comic, lyric, and dramatic vocal categories.

I have a Bachelor's of Music Education from Western Kentucky University, a
Master of Music Degree from the Eastman School of Music, was a member of the AGMA Opera Artist Program at the Chautauqua Opera, a member of the ...

About John T (Timothy)
The name I am known by is Timothy.
I am excited to start teaching students who want to learn how to sing the right way. No matter what kind of music you want to perform, having great breath support can keep you vocally healthy for your entire life.

I have studied voice myself for over 30 years. As a professional I have performed opera, musicals, operetta and in concert in Europe, primarily in German Opera houses as a lead tenor in every category.

I speak fluent German, I have a good performance knowledge of Italian, French and Latin and have also sung in Russian and Hungarian.

My voice teachers were themselves professional opera singers in the real world and I have learned so much from all of them. I have obviously also sung with some of the best singers in the world in every voice category and understand what it takes to si
ng well.

My ex-wife worked in Musicals as a keyboardist and conductor in Germany and on Broadway with Disney's Beauty and the Beast and also Miss Saigon. I spent a lot of time around this world and have learned a lot about musical singing from them.

Still, the best of them possessed classical training which helped them have long careers.

However, if you want to study for enjoyment and personal development, then I am willing to work with you as well. Love for music, the voice and singing is what binds us, not whether you want to do opera.

However, I would like to encourage those who especially want to study with me for the professional world to work with me. I'm pretty sure I can help you.

I am uncomplicated and fun to work with, but I am nicely honest and will do everything I can to help you have a wonderful experience singing.

Looking forward to working with you!

Hi!
I'm a graduate of the Houston Grand Opera Studio and have been singing professionally around the world for 10 years now.
Singing is a very special, personal experience. It takes time and patience to discover your own instrument and feel confident with it.
I want to help amateur and profesional artists in Houston to learn about their voice and the art of telling stories with songs.
We will work on technique, breathing, interpretation, languages, acting, and anything you want to work on in particular, always in a relaxed, possitive and productive space.
