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.

    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.

    My daughter has been going to Angela for 4 years now. She started at 4 years of age, and is now 8 years old. My daughter started with voice lessons, and has since also picked up piano lessons. 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!

    About Carolyn
    Coming from a large extended family in Hawaii, I was surrounded by luau music, kachi-kachi dancing, Japanese bon dances, handsome local guys singing and playing their guitars and my aunties strumming their ukes and singing old songs. I reveled in walking alone in Nature or playing piano and singing in empty, stain-glassed churches – just wailing in the dark and colored light!

    I studied: classical piano, organ, oboe, clarinet, violin, voice, and guitar. I sang in jazz trios and pop bands, earned income as a church organist/choir accompanist, and spent 15 years teaching private piano lessons to students of all ages.
    I studied drawing and painting, I drew trees, animals, the ocean, sky and mountains, still life, and the people around me.

    Upon arriving in New York City, I entered into a journey of playing at a Washington Heights gos
    pel church, living in a building filled with musicians, accompanying vocal master classes, studying Sanskrit, Indian raga, world percussion, creative arts therapy and performance wellness.

    I now compose and sing my songs - interweaving voice with keyboard or guitar. Besides teaching privately, I can be found performing my songs in clubs, outdoor festivals, coffee houses, and poetry/healing events. I currently attended a certificate program in sound & music healing and the focus of my music rests here. I incorporate many techniques to aid students in relaxation, breath awareness, and de-stressing.

    Using traditional teaching methods, I create meaningful experiences for students by:
    - being patient, flexible and creative in approach
    - using visual, aural, and tactile teaching tools

    *** Lesson Details ***
    After 3 to 6 Months OF Lessons, you can use the important music fundamentals you've learned to create music you love.
    After about a year, you are invited to share your music with others in an intimate family recital or a performance for charity in service to your community!

    *** Studio Equipment ***
    Upright piano, piano synthesizer, guitar, percussion instruments

    *** Travel Equipment ***
    Carolyn carries her own guitar, teaching aids, manuscript paper, pen/pencils, and handouts.

    Recommended for students:
    KEYBOARD - ideally, have your own keyboard/piano, piano books, staff paper
    ACOUSTIC UKULELE/GUITAR - your own guitar, capo, tuner, staff & TAB paper (you can wait for teacher to help you choose)
    VOICE - have sheet music, lyrics or charts of your songs
    SONGWRITING - have manuscript paper, recording device and journal/tablets to record their ideas
    ALL STUDENTS - small tablet for notes & keeping track of assignments and a recording device to hear your playing/singing/compositions (optional)

    *** Specialties ***

    One day, I decided to learn ukulele by myself but I became quickly stuck. I found Carolyn on this website and then went to her place to take my first lesson. Carolyn is super sweet; very welcoming, smiling, fun to work with. She is very positive and gives great feedbacks all the time! I learnt a lot during our session!! At some point, we sat at her piano to talk about notes and keys: it was very interesting to switch to another instrument. In addition, her place has very harmonious vibes: when I left I felt so much better!!! I definitely recommend Carolyn for music lessons! And I look forward to our next ukulele lesson!

    Do you want to use your voice more healthily? Do you feel like you are straining your voice? Do you wish to extend your range and abilities? Look no further.

    About Adam (Aria)
    I hold a doctorate degree in Music and specialize in teaching classical music from the Renaissance period, Baroque, classical periods, as well as pop and broadway. I teach all voice types, with expertise in mezzo soprano and countertenor literature, but vast knowledge in all. I use proven vocal techniques along side vocal yoga practices to help people to find their true, natural voice.

    I have considerable experience training those with disabilities, mental illnesses, and performance anxiety. I teach holistically, believing the voice to be an instrument inseparable from the person. With all students we endeavor to sing healthily, preserving voices for longevity, and to meet whatever goals the students desire. I am studied in the Bel Canto, Lamberti, and Concone technique and have successfully prepared many students for auditions, cont
    ests, festivals, and self confidence for life. The techniques for singing that I use are to create a sound, healthy, and free voice. Hope to study along side you!

    If you are looking for a vocal instructor, I highly recommend Adam! Adam is one of the most patient and understanding people that I have ever met. He has a true passion for teaching and that can be seen during each lesson through a variety of vocal techniques. So far, our vocal pedagogy has included: how proper singing technique is accomplished, breathing and air support for singing, posture, diction, vowels and articulation, range extension, and tone quality. Music has always been an important part of my life and I am grateful to have Adam as my vocal coach in order to further develop my voice. I have learned many helpful techniques from him and I am looking forward to learning more.

    Great first lessons...both kids enjoyed it. Ryan determined where the kids were today, taught some fundamentals and concepts, and worked with them on songs they wanted to learn.

    Hi guys! My name is Juan. I am a professional singer, musician, and music teacher.I have around 15 years of experience with various instruments from drums, guitar, voice, piano, and bass.

    I spent three years as a touring and working musician in Argentina from 2012-2015, gigging 4-5 times per week, and that largely influenced my understanding of the necessary skills one must have in order to sing and perform comfortably!

    I have studied private voice lessons on my own for nearly 10 years, and taught for around five years. When working with my students, I work through three things: breathing, technique, and range. My students range from first level beginning singers and musicians to already established and working musicians, just looking to better their breathing, technique, and expand their vocal range.

    I enjoy making the lessons catered to your own musical desires, so we will be choosing songs that YOU like singing and performing! Furthermore, many of you are in bands or looking ...

I understand the importance of connection between the student and teacher, and foster that through our lessons. Exploring vocal technique, musical interpretation, and helping students become confident and comfortable with their own singing voice is a high priority of mine as a teacher.

    I am passionate about the human voice and helping others use theirs for creative expression. Having done several musicals, choirs, and personal vocal study and exploration I see the value of vocal studies to not only improve the signing voice, but also to build self confidence, self understanding, and ability to creatively express oneself.
