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.

    I've been teaching voice lessons for over ten years. I begin with a Berklee College of Music book as a foundation and then I flourish the student with techniques, theory, and inspiration from many sources. Past students have been nominated for Grammys and excepted to prestigious schools.

I'm currently working on a Master's Degree in Music Production and Sound Design at The Academy of Art University, freelancing as a pianist/vocalist, and I'm working on and recording a second album.

    I started singing, playing piano, and composing music when I was seven years old. Throughout my musical career, I have performed and collaborated with various rock bands, classical trios, vocal ensembles, churches, and theater groups.

    My Education includes Berklee College of Music, Academy of Art University, McNally Smith College of Music, MCTC, and Full Sail University (BS and AAS degrees in Music Performance, Sound Arts/sound Engineering, Music Production).

    *** Lesson Details ***
    When you take lessons from me expect to be inspired and pushed. I thoroughly love teaching music and want the best for my students. I try my best to involve and invite students to join or listen to live music ensembles, recitals, and performances of different genres. I teach all styles of music for voice, piano, and guitar. I am very diligent with practicing, teaching you how to practice, and keeping track of it. In 3 or 6 months you will have a basic understanding of music theory and a solid foundation of piano, voice, or guitar techniques. I thrive to boost self esteem and confidence in all the students that I teach. I also teach composition, students really enjoy writing their own songs and performing them.

    *** Travel Equipment ***

    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!

    I sang in various choirs and also sing for personal songwriting. I teach proper exercises and warm up techniques to help improve tone, pitch, and breathing. I like to also have fun with it and sing contemporary songs based on student interest.

    About Matthew
    I started playing trumpet in grade school and was in the marching band the first year of high school. I then switched to playing upright bass in the orchestra. This led to me being a part of the jazz band and playing instrumentals for school musicals. Upon graduation time, I received the gold medal for music performance in strings. I was also an AP music theory student. After, I pursued a bachelor's degree in music and took education courses. I have tutored music theory and given instrument lessons, but they were always self employed or from the university.

    I wish to help others make music an enjoying part of their lives, as it is in mine.

    *** Lesson Details ***
    For lessons, I like to get a feel of the student's current abilities and then start from there. I'm progressive in my methods and use a scaffolding technique. Going out of

    My lessons are productive, intuitive, and fun! My goal is to take the best qualities of your voice and incorporate them into your entire range. My method of teaching is to build upon that which is known and apply it to the unknown in the singing voice. My method is custom built for your unique voice. Above all, I want my students to feel comfortable and confident in my lessons. I have two degrees in Vocal Performance: a Bachelor's from Florida State University and a Master's from Ohio State University.

    About Samuel
    I am an opera singer currently pursuing a Professional Studies Certificate at the Manhattan School of Music in New York City. I have sung with Opera Columbus, Opera Project Columbus, Ohio State University Opera and Lyric Theatre, Opera in the Ozarks, The Sankt Goar International Music Festival, and Florida State Opera. This August, I will be singing in a production of Mozart's The Magic Flute at the National Opera Center.

    At Opera Columbus, I sang in the “Opera for the Young” version of Jules Massenet’s Cinderella in which I played Prince Charming. This version was in English and was toured to underprivileged schools all throughout the central Ohio area. It was an eye-opening and rewarding experience. I am passionate about Opera and sharing that passion with the next generation will aid in their appreciation of music and culture.


    I am comfortable teaching many styles of music and singing, namely opera, music theatre, country, and gospel. I will fine-tune your voice to fit the style of singing. After all, technique only exists to serve the style of the music in a healthy and beautiful manner. I grew up on these types of music and I understand the vocal demands of each one of them very well. I sing them all the time!

    I am an experienced singer and I know the voice well. I understand its potential and its limitations. If you take lessons with me I will not only improve your voice, but I will also improve your vocal intuition. I will give you the tools to self-diagnose your vocal problems with good technique. I understand that learning how to sing with good technique can be a difficult process, but I have had many teachers and perspectives on teaching voice. With this, I can teach you to sing in a way that you will understand and find fulfilling.

    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.
