Private Classical Voice Teacher

Hi, I'm Laura and I believe everyone has a unique and authentic voice that deserves to be uncovered. Whether you have stage aspirations or are simply interested in learning more about singing, voice lessons can be a great way to build confidence and grow in your sense of self. We'll work together to develop a language and tool box that will enable you to reach your fullest potential as a singer.

About Laura

Hi, I’m Laura, and I want to tell you right now, you CAN sing and you SHOULD sing. From birth until death, the voice is our primary vehicle for expression. When you take a voice lesson, you are learning more than just good vocal technique (though that’s important). You’re learning about yourself an

I had no prior vocal or musical training of any kind--I can't read music--when I began voice lessons with Laura. All I had was a passion since childhood that I finally got the nerve up to pursue. The lessons were a wonderful experience from the very beginning. Voice may be the most challenging instrument to learn, because the teacher can't "play the instrument" to demonstrate technique. Laura has a remarkable talent for communicating vocal techniques and concepts with inventive and vivid visualizations that helped me understand the relationship between my body, my voice, and the sound I produce. I loved the music of Gabriel Faure, but never imagined I could sing it. Laura had all the confidence that I could, and we jumped right in. Faure's beautiful art songs, as well as others by Reynaldo Hahn and Ernest Chasson that Laura introduced me to, are now a part of me. I learned so much in the two years we worked together before Laura returned to her hometown of Denver, and miss her terribly!

I've learned so many valuable vocal lessons with Ms. Laura! She is super talented, smart, and such a great teacher. Ms. Laura takes time to explain musical concepts and techniques. Five stars!
Lisa
My 13 year-old daughter had taken voice lessons from Ms. Laura in Maryland for two years. I have to say my daughter was so lucky to have Ms. Laura as her first voice teacher! When my daughter started to show interest in singing in 2016, she knew very little about singing. Ms. Laura was very knowledgeable, personal and supportive. Ms. Laura taught my daughter about vocal anatomy, how to improve her voice presentation and how to avoid possibility of voice loss, inflammation from overuse or misuse. After several months, my daughter made very impressive progress on her voice range and presentation. It was such a treat when I listened to my daughter practicing singing at home. She was getting better and better every day. I was so proud of my daughter. At the same time, I really appreciate Ms. Laura being such a wonderful teacher. Ms. Laura is very personal. She tried to know my daughter as a teacher and as a friend. Based on each student's personality and strength, Ms. Laura chose music that helps each student to grow, but also focus on what needs to be worked on. Ms. Laura was very flexible when we needed to reschedule lessons. We sure miss her!!

Private Classical Voice Teacher

I am an experienced musician and performer with a variety of teaching skills gained over 20 years of study and action. Lessons in my studio are about so much more than just learning to sing a song or write music. Students are instilled with business knowledge, work ethic, and confidence so that they can truly accomplish whatever they set their minds to. We go deep and focus on how to develop new mental and physical habits that can help the student better express his/herself. We work hard on a curriculum that is specifically catered to the student's needs, and of course, is fun too!

I've worked with students from ages 6-65, with varying backgrounds and interests. From complete beginners to professional performing artists. All students are guaranteed to see improvement in their technical skills within the first month of lessons. Let's do this!

tons of fun super excited to do more lessons!
Pearson
Firstly, Jameson is not a voice teacher for money. I do not know anyone who genuinely loves music and singing more than him. Jameson's passion for performing is evident from the moment you meet him. His rates are very reasonable considering the top-notch quality of the lessons. He focuses on the fundamentals of releasing your authentic voice rather than specialized techniques to mimic other performers. He listens carefully to your thoughts and feelings throughout each lesson, adjusting accordingly. He challenges you to express how your body is working with your vocals after each try so that you are able to be aware of your voice outside of lessons as well. He ensures that the lesson is fun and fast-paced so that you can feel great strides in vocal improvement with each time.
Thanks to Jameson, my voice has been freed. I sing strongly, with control, and with passion any chance I get. The confidence Jameson has giving me in my singing voice is quite honestly, priceless.

Deidre
My daughter has expressed a love for music and singing from a very early age. As a parent, I thought she had a beautiful voice and that was confirmed by a good friend of mine who recommended me to Steven. I started Olivia with Steven when she was 9 years old. Through his instruction and guidance her voice has grown tremendously. She was awarded a major role as a 5th grader in her school play and then went on to be the lead as a 6th and 7th grader. She was the youngest student in the history of the school to earn a lead role.

Olivia also auditioned for the Paper Mill Playhouse Summer Conservatory and was accepted for their August Intensive program. I have no doubt that it was Steven's teaching that helped her with her audition that gained her acceptance.

Olivia is now 12 and as a young person, needs to learn how to interpret a song so that she can perform it well. Steven takes the time to teach the MEANING of the words and explains the story that is trying to be told. This was very important for Olivia to learn.

I highly recommend working with Steven. He is a fabulous teacher with a lot of knowledge and insight.

Steve is a great teacher. Encouraging, enthusiastic and pushes you to your limits. I worked with him for several years. Have no hesitation recommending him for voice training and speech training.

We will look at classical repertoire including art songs, oratorio, and opera. We may also address sight singing if you are preparing for an audition. My teaching is very much influenced by my certification in Somatic Voicework™ The Lovetri Method. It is a body-based method of vocal training which is based upon voice science and medicine, traditional classical training, and various bodywork approaches. If you're struggling in a particular area of your voice, I can help you work through those issues.

RE: Advanced Classical Singers (College and older...and in some cases High School)

ALL CLASSICAL SINGERS after time will slowly chip away at all languages and classical styles. It depends on the level. Fach presentation is important. We will pick out relevant arias that reflect this. Mozart, Bel Canto, French, German, American Opera etc; (ARIAS only).

For some, we will want to have a mix of arias and art songs in Italian, French, German and English (minimum).

Having representation in all languages is important so you are ready for any audition requirement.

RE: Young Classical Singers (Middle School-High School)

Serious classical singers of all voice types will work from the 24 Italian Arias book.

Other repertoire depends on voice type & development expectations/goals.

Young sopranos will get some Debussy Chansons as it sits quite a bit higher & it's great for technique. With young mezzos, we will find pieces that address the chest & mixed voice head-on. ...

"I selected Elizabeth as my classical vocal teacher when I moved to North Scottsdale and have been very pleased with my experience thus far! My voice has improved in tonality, quality and all over sound. Currently, I am relearning music techniques and correcting bad singing habits. After we ran thru a variety of scales and arias in our first practice she suspected I was only utilizing half of my vocal range. I thought, "ya ya, okay". But, Aaah, she was right! I've always placed myself as Mezzo-Soprano/Contralto ( a 2nd Soprano-1st Alto) but after improving some techniques, at her recommendation, I am discovering a very high song bird-esque Soprano sound coming from me! I am beyond thrilled at my newly discovered voice set and am looking forward to unearthing more of it."

"I highly recommend Sarabeth to anyone interested in singing, whether you have already had some background in voice or you are just starting out.

Sarabeth is a truly amazing voice teacher!!! She led me step by step through many vocal exercises and taught me many a great classical song! Her patience and encouragement were ever present at each lesson as I stumbled through the classical songs which were written in other languages.

I have SMA type 1-2, a severely debilitating and progressive disease, and my lung capacity was 24% of normal when Sarabeth started teaching me. Under her guidance, I was able to increase my lung capacity to 28%! Believe me when I say that this is not supposed to happen to people with SMA. In general our lung capacities continue to decrease as the disease progresses until we need to be placed under mechanical ventilation. The most common mode of death for people with SMA is respiratory failure.

I am deeply saddened that Sarabeth is moving away to Los Angeles and will no longer be able to be my singing teacher, but wishing her the best of luck there!!! I will always remember her as the incredibly wonderful teacher she is!"

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 different 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
