To be able to sing smoothly from your lowest note to your highest note regardless of how you feel is one of the many skills you gain from good vocal technique. Whether the high notes are challenging for you or the lower notes are challenging, singing on pitch, vocal strength or vocal consistency is an issue this can all be fixed with proper and healthy vocal technique. What I teach works quickly students usually hear of feel a difference on their first lesson.
Sounding good when you sing is not the only important part to a long singing career. To be able to do what you love throughout your life it is important to sing in a healthy way also. To be able to sing when you are healthy and rested is easy to some people however singing when you are tired, sick, stressed, fatigued or you have just stained your voice is another matter.

Coren was warm, positive, and patient with a great sense of humor. She connected well with my 11 year old granddaughter, making her quickly feel at ease during the first lesson, and making her look forward to her next lessons. I highly recommend Coren for her professionalism and for her caring and cheerful personality.

I can't choose a subject because Andrew teaches so many different things in his piano lessons that I would be doing him a disservice if I chose just one.

As a former piano lessons taker myself, I must admit that I had some lofty expectations for my daughter's piano lessons. On the first day of lessons for her, I knew that we were in great hands. Andrew has exceeded my expectations with every turn. And a fun and lighthearted way, and through games, activities, and fingers on the piano , Andrew helps the young learner learn the most important thing about music: it's fun! Theory is fun, composition is fun, ear training is fun, performance is fun. As a musician myself, I'd almost forgot. Andrew has helped me to remember, and is instilling these values in my daughter.

Thank you Andrew for being so awesome.

Gabriel is an amazing coach. He takes the time to explain in detail how to discover a character in an easy to understand way. As a beginner he has really helped me learn to break down a script and understand what is going on. He teaches you how to set yourself apart from the crowd in an audition.

Gabriel developed a proprietary method of accent reduction that makes it easy to focus on the areas that need change or improvement. The method, combined with Gabriel’s passion for teaching, make the classes dynamic and productive. He quickly identified my problematic areas, and patiently worked with me on changes I needed to make to the way I pronounce certain sounds.

He also provides ample resources and direction for exercises in between the lessons to make the progress faster. I highly recommend Gabriel for accent reduction classes.

My lessons are a platform for each student to become the best singer they can be, according to their own definition of success. We will sing any genre you love, and work on the quality of your sound and on the authenticity of your interpretation. You will learn voice technique, diction (if language different than English) as well as stage presence, and how to engage your audience to the fullest. Working with me, you can always expect to have a relaxing and fun self-discovery time.

About Giorgia
I started my solo and backup singer career at the age of 12, working for RG Recording Studio (Italy). When I was 15 I founded a children's choir (ages 5 to 15) called Voci di Pace. I trained them as soloists and as an ensemble, as well as conducted them through the professional recording of dozens of CDs. I also trained and conducted students for the recording of highschool musicals.

I began my conservatory bachelor degree training in cello and chamber music in 1997, and graduated 2010. Since then, I have studied singing technique with pop star Silvia Mezzanotte and with opera singers Chiara Fiorani and Noa Frenkel.

I love to teach singing, singing in Italian and Italian diction to students of all ages and backgrounds who are ready to explore their own souls and bodies and to learn how to be themselves through sound and music.

Lauren is just amazing; knowledgable, positive and encouraging. I have a vocal tremor meaning my voice shakes when speaking and I lost the ability to sing. With Lauren's help, I am strengthening my voice. I had voice therapy sessions with a medically trained therapist where I made no progress and was encouraged to accept my 'limitation'. With Lauren, I didn't have to settle for accepting my limitation. Rather, I am making huge progress, thanks to her technical expertise, knowledge and encouragement, My speaking tremor is nearly gone and I can sing again!

Hey there!

I have been singing for 7 years now, and I love helping beginning singers--and any singers that want to review the basics--develop pitch, breathing, and resonance skills for freer, tension-free singing. As a new teacher with some recent experience, I offer a more affordable alternative for singers who are getting started. Whether you want to gain confidence for karaoke or expand your audition repertoire, I would love to help. I have experience with classical, jazz and musical theater. I have worked as section leader in multiple choirs, choir council, featured roles in multiple productions, and a one on one vocal coach.

I look forward to getting to know you and your voice!

About Hanna
I am a music minor at Emory University with eight years of vocal experience and one year of teaching experience. For students who are new to singing, the cost of voice lessons can be daunting. I believe that learning how to sing freely and confidently should be affordable.

My students have been accepted to the Atlanta Youth Chorus and Decalb School for the Arts. As for myself, I have been called back for and cast in many featured roles in musicals as community theaters as well as school-related theater. I participated in the IE Thespian Festival three times and was awarded a nationally-qualifying score twice in the Solo Musical category. I have also been involved in choir and vocal jazz for many years and was named Alto section leader at two separate schools. I received training from Jordan McClellan, a well-known opera and musical the
ater singer in Washington State. Currently, I am on the Exec board for my acapella group at Emory.

I focus on the basics for new students as well as intermediate ones: breath, resonance, and pitch. For students who are preparing for auditions, as someone who has been through about twenty auditions in the past few years, I can help with content, confidence, and the audition process in general.

I'm excited to hear from you, so reach out!

About Stephanie
As a passionate musician, I strive to find the gifts in all of my students by instilling a good relationship that fosters musical growth. Teaching piano and voice has been the most rewarding and integral part of my professional career.
A graduate of Northwest Missouri State University, I was actively involved as a music major as I gained my bachelor of science in music education. I performed as a member of the Celebration show choir as well as the University Chorale. My piano training began at the age of six and continues today. I now enjoy singing with my church choir, and singing as a soloist at my church.
One thing that has been important to me as I raised my children is that they were exposed to music and developed a true love of it. As young adults, we now enjoy as a family singing and playing instruments together to share our gi
