Singing Lessons in Saint Louis: What You Need to Know

by Dave B. - Saint Louis Vocal Instructor

Are you from Saint Louis and wondering what’s going on in the Gateway City for singers? There are many opportunities to study voice and show off your vocal skills in the city. Here are a few resources to check out as you’re taking singing lessons in Saint Louis:

  1. Perform One of the best ways to hone your singing style is just to go out and sing whenever possible! Saint Louis is alive with opportunities to stand up in front of an audience, try out new material you’ve been working on at voice lessons, or just sing old favorites you've been singing for a while. Attending one of the many open mic nights and karaoke nights Saint Louis has to offer is a fun and useful way to practice your singing skills. Check out these useful websites to stay in the know about the Saint Louis music scene: open mic nights - http://www.openmicstlouis.com/ karaoke nights - http://www.mokaraoke.com/

  • Audition There are many excellent theater companies around Saint Louis that often have open auditions for both kids and adults. Musical theater is a great way for singers to work on their craft, because within the context of a show, a singer works on vocal technique, as well as performance skills. Any good singer needs to be an actor to some extent; no one wants to watch a singer who looks bored, scared or uncomfortable, even if his or her voice is amazing. Participating in a musical theater production will teach you how to use your singing talent in new ways. My theater company, RockShow Academy, is a perfect starting place for kids who are getting started in theater. Outside of private lessons, there are also opportunities for summer camps and programs at places such as COCA (The Center of Contemporary Arts) & Stages Saint Louis. Kids who are looking for professional experience can try out to be a “MUNY Kid” at The MUNY, Saint Louis’ premier outdoor theater. http://www.rockshowacademy.com/ http://www.cocastl.org/ http://www.stagesstlouis.org/PerformingArtsAcademy/ http://www.muny.org/eya-main-menu/muny-kids-and-teens

  • Watch One of the most important things any aspiring singer should be doing is attending as many concerts and shows as they can. Great singers are not made “in a bubble.” Rather, their talent is developed over time from working with their voice teacher, practicing and listening, and watching great singers sing. You do not have to look far to find great concerts or performances to attend in Saint Louis. Fantastic Broadway tours come through The Fabulous Fox Theater and The Peabody Opera House, and national acts often perform at The Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre. http://www.fabulousfox.com/ http://www.peabodyoperahouse.com/ http://thehollywoodcasinoamphitheatre.com/

  • So, get out and enjoy the culture and opportunities for singers that the Gateway City has to offer, and best of luck in your singing lessons in Saint Louis!

    About Juliet
    I have been a teacher in private practice for 20 years. I have a wide range of experience with singers of all styles and age groups with a variety of goals and skills. I sang with a professional jazz octet for a number of years while maintaining my practice, have taught various master classes, musically directed various musicals, have sung background vocals and played piano on various recordings. I studied vocal and piano performance at Murray State University and studied privately through my adult singing and teaching career.

    *** Lesson Details ***
    I am a big believer of direct application of core technique to repertoire/style. Generally, lessons are fun, comfortable and laughter is encouraged. I like singers to be working on a wide variety of music from the beginning. It's a great way to understand and explore your voice an
    d how great technique is fundamental to successful development. I find this approach beneficial if you're a beginning student or if you sing professionally. Not to mention, singing songs is fun!!!! I encourage all students to give input on repertoire. Songs are chosen with goals in mind, including working specific parts of the range, preparing for an audition or performance, stamina, strength, and overall vocal development. In 3-6 months you will have a very good understanding of how your voice works and how to apply good technique to a variety of styles of music. My goals for piano students of all ages include a broad understanding of music theory and the ability to sit down and play music! I believe good sight reading skills are paramount for piano enjoyment and functional playing skills. We will sight read at each lesson.

    *** Studio Equipment ***
    Studio with piano, mic, recoding equipment, and seating for parents.

    *** Travel Equipment ***
    I have a full size keyboard for travel.

    *** Specialties ***
    *Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25
    lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.I'm comfortable with all styles of singing and have coached extensively in most styles, from classical to hip hop to rock. I work with singers with various goals. Some are professional singers, some study for a future career, and some study for personal enrichment. I am very good at teaching solid healthy technique/voice use, with direct application to repertoire, maintaining the singer's authenticity, style, and vocal health.

    Adam is really super (I am only on my third lesson). He will make you feel comfortable and interact with you in a personable and dynamic way.

    He is the perfect teacher if you want to improve your stage voice and pitch. Adam is the man if you have fame on your mind. Julia

    If you are a little slow on the uptake, (like I am when I don't know the subject matter) you need to be brave and follow his directions in practicing techniques. Adam personalizes his lessons, but they could be more planned. They feel a little too unprepared.

    About Charles
    I am an international recording artist and seasoned performer. I have been playing music since the early age of 8 yrs old. I have always been inspired by music and love to inspire others with music. Some of my accomplishments include putting an album out with Universal Records as a Nashville recording artist, having over 7 albums out internationally, and recording and playing with some of the biggest names in the music industry. I am a classically trained musician as well as an innovative and experienced teacher. I have been teaching for over 15 years and have seen many of my students go on to become top-notch performers themselves while pursuing successful careers in music. In addition to being a private music teacher, I have also taught at many schools in the valley including the Center for Educational Excellence School, Grand Canyon Pr
    eparatory private charter school and the Arizona Music Academy. I teach all levels of guitar, bass, and drums and tailor every lesson to the individual student’s needs and personality. My annual recitals are live-performance concerts featuring bands and other performing groups formed from among my students along with solo performances. My students also perform regularly throughout the community and are successful in their musical endeavors at all ages. I teach a wide range of genres and styles from classical music, blues, jazz and rock to heavy metal with an emphasis on becoming A-Level lead guitar soloists and song writers. I teach songwriting skills, music theory, and have even helped many of my guitar students be able to sing better while learning their main instrument.

    *** Lesson Details ***
    I make my lessons fun and informative and have had many students stay with me for up to 7 years. I show you everything you will ever need to know about music theory but in a very useful applicable way. I teach popular songs from any artist and classics that have stood the test of time and show you how to become a great song writer of your own giving you an insider’s knowledge about how to perform and have the audience standing asking for more. No matter if you want to become a pro lead guitar player or just play to have fun I can show you how to sing and play the guitar or piano at the same time or singing songs from church as well as your favorite rock or pop songs with confidence.

    My love of singing began in my freshman year of high school, when I joined the choir. It was a life-changing experience, and inspired me to make music my career. I immediately began taking private voice lessons, and became a voice teacher myself by 2005. While in college, I was presented with many opportunities to learn and grow, both as a musician and as a teacher. I sang in several different collegiate choirs, and was nominated to be in the all-collegiate choir in 2007. I also passed yearly auditions to sing in Voices Only, Lindenwood's most advanced vocal group. During my junior and senior years at Lindenwood, I worked as the assistant director of Voices Only. This was a wonderful opportunity, and I learned so much while leading warm-ups every day, running sectionals on a weekly basis, directing the group during rehearsals and even during performances when the director was away. I currently sing in the Saint Louis Harmony Chorus, one of the top 25 women's barbershop choruses in the

    About Angela
    Hi! My name is Angela, and I teach private piano, voice, and theory lessons. I love teaching, and have taught many ages (3 to 93) and ability levels (novice to advanced). I am a dependable, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic teacher. I offer lessons for 30, 45, or 60-minute weekly sessions in my home studio. I do not offer bi-weekly lessons or lessons in the student's home.

    My home is a split-level, with my private living area above and my music studio below. There is a waiting area just outside the music studio, as well as a half-bath specifically designated for students and parents. The studio itself contains a piano and organ, my personal music library, and additional seating for parents. There is a full-length mirror for vocal students to watch their performance skills grow, and a gumball machine for when younger students have an exce
    ptionally good lesson.

    Making music is a skill which can bring lifelong joy to the musician as well as everyone around them. While I can easily ensure that my students enjoy music-making while they are taking lessons, my ultimate goal is that students continue to want to make music throughout their entire life, even after they stop taking lessons. I firmly believe that my job as a teacher is to train my students to be independent and self-sufficient musicians. Many teachers teach by rote, playing a passage to a student and then having the student play it back. Though this method is helpful in some situations, students who are taught in this manner often find that they are only able to play the songs taught to them in lessons, and that to learn a new song they must have a teacher by their side showing them how the song goes. In my lessons, however, students are taught to learn their own music through sight-reading, ear-training, music theory, and listening to and critiquing their own playing. Over time, this allows the student more and more freedom to make music without a teacher.

    I am adding a review to override my original 4 star review to a 5 star review. My husband and I have been voice and piano students of Angela for well over a year now and she makes learning music interesting, fun, and challenging. It's intimidating to learn these skills (especially singing) as an adult but she is such a good teacher that we continue to look forward to our lessons and really enjoy learning these skills. She is encouraging and an excellent coach.

Now my younger daughter (5 years old) also began taking piano lessons with Angela. I can't imagine another music teacher for my girls. Angela is wonderful. She is professional and every moment of music lessons is complete quality time. I highly recommend Angela as a music teacher for anyone of any ability level!

    I believe everyone has the ability to sing … some better than others, of course, -- but regardless, I believe every voice can make a beautiful sound. I believe learning to sing requires team work: with the proper instruction and learning tools from me, the instructor, and with the dedication (practice, practice, practice) from you, the student, a well-rounded singer can emerge.

    I began singing when I was five years old in church. I continued singing exclusively inspirational music until I was a teenager. At that time, in addition to the second soprano part I sang in a five-part harmony

I believe learning to sing requires team work: with the proper instruction and learning tools from me, the instructor, and with the dedication (practice, practice, practice) from you, the student, a well-rounded singer can emerge. If you can hear the proper note, I can help your vocal instrument play to its fullest abilities.

    I began singing when I was five years old in church. I continued singing exclusively inspirational music until I was a teenager. At that time, in addition to the second soprano part I sang in a five-part harmony a Capella (without instrumental accompaniment) Gospel group, I also sang in a few bands (Rhythm and Blues, Jazz, and Rock). My undergraduate studies we
    re completed at the American University, where I majored in Communications (B.A.), and minored in Music, voice being my instrument. During my undergraduate studies, I was recruited and performed as the lead female vocalist for a Rock band that a few fellow music students had formed. While in college, I was trained in classical voice, piano, music theory, musical theater performance, and vocal pedagogy (vocal training). My vocal pedagogy studies credentialed me to become a professional vocal instructor. I began teaching voice after I earned my degree, and have been teaching private voice lessons for over ten years.

    Most of my present expertise in teaching voice grew from my vocal pedagogy studies, my teaching experience which has developed over time, my own personal vocal dedication, and my training and understanding of various genres of vocal performance. My present singing career is as an inspirational singer; my vocal students encompass various genres in which I have experience, including: Inspirational, Rhythm and Blues, Jazz, Rock, Classical, as well as various degrees of popular music.

    *** Audition Preparation ***
    I have coached many of my students to prepare for auditions: auditions to be accepted into performing arts schools, parts in musicals and plays, joining a band or vocal ensemble, as well as auditions for televised singing shows, such as "The Voice," "Sunday's Best," "American Idol" and "The X Factor."

    *** Lesson Details ***
    I teach students by using the tried and true techniques I have found to be successful, and allow the student to be my guide as to which direction to take with his or her vocal training. Whether the student is a novice, a professional, or somewhere in between, each student, after obtaining the basic singing knowledge and techniques, will have a vocal training schedule geared to his or her individual needs and development. Lessons are for the most part very casual in nature, and the student’s dedication (practice, practice, practice) will dictate whether or not the lessons become stricter. A few months into the vocal instruction, students will be given the opportunity to learn more about reading music and sight singing, if he or she so chooses, as well as vocal performance techniques for singing in front of an audience. Within one year, dedicated students may also have the opportunity to show off what they have learned, and perform in front of an audience at a recital with other vocal students. Please note that my preference is to work with teens age 13 through adults of any age. I believe that younger voices need more time to develop and stand to be damaged if too much stress is put on them too soon. However, exceptions for children under 13 may be made for gifted young singers.

    *** Studio Equipment ***
    Home studio- entry room of home, baby grand piano, seating area, dry erase board, mirrors
    Music Studio- one recording studio, seating area, classroom

    *** Travel Equipment ***
    If needed, I provide a portable piano keyboard, microphone with amplifier, paper handouts of lessons, etc. The student needs to have paper to take notes and a writing instrument.

    *** Specialties ***
    Most of my voice lesson experience has been with adults, and contemporary popular and inspirational music.

    Learn to sing true bel canto! My goal is to train voices to sing in a free and natural way, smoothly, from the bottom of the range to the top with no breaks or sudden changes in quality. Training in this technique gives the singer access to all dynamics, with tonal clarity and flexibility. This technique helps improve a singer’s range, endurance, stamina, breath control, resonance, vocal strength and vocal quality in all styles of music without fatigue or damage to the voice.

    About Kiki
    Raised just 30 minutes away from America's Entertainment Capital, Hollywood, California I have always had a draw to the performance spotlight. I started singing at the young age of 5 and since then, have received training from some of the world's finest instructors, including Tony Award Winner Lisa Seegmiller. I studied music vocal performance at Southern Utah University on a full scholarship with emphasis in opera and musical theater.

    Some of my vocal accomplishments include first place winner in musical theater/classical divisions of the National Association of Teachers of Singing competition in 2005 and 2009 Las Vegas chapter. I made my first television singing debut in 2003 when I was invited to sing the National Anthem at the Paradise Bowl. I have also sung with both the Orchestra of Southern Utah and Southwest Symphony as a sopr
    ano soloist in their performances of Handel's Messiah.

    My love for the performing arts has given me the drive to teach what I love to others. I opened my very first studio over 12 years ago in Southern Utah while attending Dixie State University. I have since opened studios in Las Vegas, Kansas City area, and finally in 2014 Austin, Texas. In 2011 I was hired as the resident music director for Kids in the Round theater company until May 2013. My students have been cast in lead roles at many regional theater companies across the country as well as projects for TV and film. My young students are regularly cast in lead roles in their middle school and high school productions and selected to be apart of chamber choirs and selective performance groups.

    Come and join my studio! I'd love to teach you!

    I can help you or your student prepare for an upcoming audition of any type, such as college entrance auditions, church solos, musicals, as well as prep for songs to be sung for special occasions, weddings, recitals, etc..

    I also specialize in sight-singing training and technique.

    Let me help you reach your full vocal potential ...and have fun while doing it!

    Julie is knowledgeable and her patience with young children is greatly appreciated. She focuses on techniques which includes your sitting posture, neck position and makes sure that no damage is done to your voice. My daughter who is 10 year old is used to many Skype lessons but she was amazed with Julie's instructions which made her comfortable and interesting.

    Miss Julie is understand and respectful to whatever expertise you are at in your music career. She takes the time to listen, correct and give tips that you just don't get from online research and trying things for yourself. She gave me the guidance that is necessary to persuade my art form and for that reason I'd highly recommend anyone to take a class with her.

    I am a pianist who works as a Director of Music at a church. I needed a teacher who could help me with vocal techniques that can not only benefit myself but for me to be able to teach and help my choir.
    I feel very lucky that I have found Lacy who is very knowledgeable at what she does. She is patient and easy to get along with. She won't try to flatter you, but she will try to make you a better singer. I highly recommend Lacy, especially if you are looking to improve your technique.
