Private Classical Voice Teacher

I will meet you wherever you are, and together we will develop a personalized plan to meet your goals. Classical singing is often done in an overly clinical manner, punishing vocal idiosyncrasies and style, and robbing music of its joys. But as a person who had a horrible experience with classical training, I pride myself on being able to impart its better aspects without subjecting students to its more harmful, infamous aspects.

Singing is a very technical thing. The human voice is an instrument like any other that you can understand and use in a technical manner. But also your voice is a direct extension of your spirit, your identity, your history, and your passions that others can directly perceive! To truly live in your voice, to be proud of your voice, is to be proud of yourself, fundamentally. I will use my clinical knowledge and my personal knowledge as a singer to teach you to use your voice technically without robbing singing of its soul.

About Saturday

I am a trans nonbinary voice teacher with a bachelor's degree in Speech Language Pathology, 13 years of experience as a professional singer, and over 10 years studying and teaching singing, music theory, voice theory, and speech science. I love cats and I am obsessed with Star Trek DS9 and TNG.

Saturday is one of the most phenomenal instructors I’ve ever had! They really worked with me to understand where I was struggling and found a way to practice that worked for me! They are always so patient and ready to teach. I truly feel like I have improved so much since I started lessons with them!
Josh
I've thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Saturday so far! As a classically trained singer who has spent all of the quarantine away from choral ensembles and a capella groups, it was absolutely refreshing to be able to dive into a different aspect of music (in my case, broadway singing) while touching up on the music theory aspects of the genre itself. I've been pleasantly surprised by the way that Saturday has been able to relate the more modern styles of singing to what I am already comfortable with while keeping the mood of the lessons fun yet efficient. It's definitely been worth my time and I'm excited to continue learning with them.
Noora
I am so glad I had the opportunity to learn from Saturday! I worked with them for a while and always enjoyed their company and general attitude! Eventually, I decided to start taking lessons from them and I am so glad I did! I learned about music theory, different styles of singing, and how to healthily use my voice. I have vocal scarring/damage that causes me discomfort and some pain, especially while singing. Saturday was able to teach me ways to sing comfortably as well as improve my overall sound! It has been and continues to be great!! :)

Ms. Rebecca has taught one of my twin daughters since she was in kindergarten and now she is a freshman in high school, and the other daughter since about 5th grade. Both have learned the fundamentals of how to sing, the right techniques, the right approaches to new music, how to preserve their voice when doing certain types of songs (not to strain their voices and cause damage), etc. Ms. Rebecca has been an invaluable guide to the world of musical theater and classical songs (including opera). And she has helped my daughters prepare for various competitions that they have both done well in, reflecting the excellent foundation and skills Ms. Rebecca has fostered.

Cory is masterful at what he does. We love how he has catered his lessons to our son's level of experience. He has also inspired such confidence in our son's performances. Cory is a music talent we feel so fortunate to have found. Our 10-year old son always so excited for his lessons and his "homework."

Classical Singing Lessons Near You

Classical voice training will make you a better singer overall, whether you want to continue singing classical music, perform on a Broadway stage, or take the lead in a jazz band. In classical voice lessons, students hone their skills with tried and true training methods that translate to every other genre.

Vocal teachers train students to use their bodies to produce the best possible sound when singing. This includes learning how to breathe properly, how to stand with the right posture for singing, and how to open up resonant spaces inside your body to improve projection.

Although singing is a very physical pursuit, it's also quite emotional. In classical voice lessons, you'll also learn how to confidently express emotion and tell a story while singing music from differen

...

t eras and cultures. Through song, you'll learn how to truly connect with your audience. 

Reasons to Take Classical Vocal Training for Singers

Singing has a wide range of physical and mental benefits. First off, it releases endorphins. This means whether you're singing in the shower or on your way to work, singing will make you feel happy, reduce stress, and reduce the amount of physical pain you feel.

Singing and projecting properly also strengthens the muscles used for breathing and opening airways, including those around your diaphragm, throat, and soft palate. As a result, it'll improve your quality of sleep. As you strengthen these muscles over time, you'll breathe better through the night. So, singing is especially good for individuals with disorders like sleep apnea.

A primary focus of classical voice lessons is learning how to sight-read — not simply knowing the notes on the staff, but also being able to sing them without having previously heard the music. 

This keen training of your ear, learning to match symbols with specific pitches, makes you a major asset whether you’re singing solo, in a choir, or leading a band. It also strengthens the listening centers in your brain. 

What You'll Learn in Classical Voice Lessons

The best way to start singing or improve your current skills is to take classical singing lessons near you. In private lessons, you'll learn the skills and gain the confidence needed to become a talented singer.

An experienced teacher will tailor each lesson to your individual needs and keep you motivated, while you learn at a pace that's comfortable for you. Also, when you receive immediate feedback and have your teacher's undivided attention, you'll find that you progress and overcome challenges more quickly than you could while trying to train yourself. 

Sample Curriculum in Classical Singing for Beginners

In classical singing lessons for beginners, you'll be introduced to the basic skills and concepts needed to get started. You'll work with your teacher to master important techniques that'll open the doors to tackling more challenging music. At this level, your teacher might cover some of the following topics:

  • Learn proper posture and breathing techniques
  • Warm-ups, exercises, and scales
  • Your vocal range
  • Voice classification
  • Vocal registers
  • Introduction to music theory

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Classical Training 

Intermediate voice students build upon the basic principles while learning new techniques and becoming a stronger musician. At this stage, your teacher might choose to cover some of the following topics:

  • Proper vowel shaping and diction
  • Foreign language singing and the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA)
  • Using the four resonant chambers
  • Register transitions
  • Sight reading
  • Controlling vibrato

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Classical Voice Training 

Topics in advanced classical vocal training for singers depend greatly on your goals and personal challenges. Your tutor will customize lessons to reflect your interests. Some advanced voice teachers might cover the following topics:

  • Terraced dynamic shifts
  • Controlling runs and trills
  • Audition coaching
  • Performance preparation
  • Genre styling
