Private Singing 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!

Emphasis on releasing tension, creating more vocal resonance space, breathing, and how to produce sound.

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.

Carolyn did a great job of introducing our 8-year-old to signing. She was energetic, patient and fun and made sure to pick music our daughter liked and customized lessons to her interest and level.
Mia L.
My daughter has been asking me for ukulele classes for a while and we found Carolyn online, really liked her profile and we just had the first class yesterday. My daughter had a fun and informative class with a nice follow up practice to do on her own. Carolyn was great, \able to connect with my 7 yr old and made her feel comfortable. She even asked me if we were going to be able to meet her in person one day!

When our lessons started, I have low expectations of myself. I never realised I could have enjoyed it as much. Much of the enjoyment could be attributed to Teacher Carolyn's guidance, and tips. I appreciated that she was kind and positive all throughout.

Lessons are fun. My philosophy is that students should have music in their lives and benefit from the lessons they take now for years to come. Learning music will help students with math skills, study habits, and develop a skill that will last for a lifetime.

After 3 months students will understand the fundamentals of their voice, warm up properly, be able to read and sing introductory passages. After 6 months the student will have learned basic music theory, how to read music, and have advanced through singing multiple songs.

About Betsy

Music is the biggest passion in my life. I love being able to share that gift with my students, and look forward to their progress as much as my own. I continue to grow and develop as a musician, and love connecting with people through music. My students all learn to love and appreciate music, t

"Sammy took the time to understand my exact range and current abilities. Because of this he was able to give me some great starting exercises which were specifically tailored to my current abilities and natural vocal characteristics.

Also, the lesson was fun and he was very animated and put words and visual understanding to vocal concepts in a way that was fascinating and helpful. I've had lessons before but his education and experience really stood out in the way he understands the biology and process. We will be meeting again for sure!"

"A great experience with a skilled instructor

Above all else, Jimi knows what he's doing. His advice is exactly what I needed to improve me use of my voice. His knowledge of the human voice and various instructional methods is both broad and deep, and he draws on it effectively to give effective personalized advice.

Jimi is an endless wellspring of information and advice, and sometimes I want to do more singing and less listening. But when I do get to sing, I always find that the listening has paid off -- I'm improving fast, and it's because of his good teaching."

Private Singing Classes Near You and Online

If you've ever watched a musical, attended a karaoke party, or listened to a choir harmonize and thought, "I wish I could do that," then voice lessons are the best first step.

Singing brings people together, whether in choirs, concerts, or just amongst friends. One of the most powerful instruments in the world is built into our bodies, and learning how to use this innate instrument can bring about a lifetime of musical expression.

Many aspiring singers have the misconception that people are either born with innate singing talent or not. While it’s true that some young singers can quickly pick up vocal skills, the majority of great singers have worked with voice coaches for years. Even if you have some natural singing abilities, it’s still important to hone your skills if you want to reach your full potential.

A voice coach’s job is more than just helping you sing in tune. They also give you the unique feedback necessary to reduce unnecessary tensions, liberate your breath, and perform with confidence. Although many vocal exercises can sound silly, when used correctly, they are nothing short of magic on the vocal cords. Within just a few vocal lessons, you’ll be amazed at how your voice opens up!

Why Take Voice Lessons?

Taking singing lessons will develop your ability to confidently participate in the joy of music, whether by joining a choir, singing at a karaoke bar, or landing a gig in the music business. Studying music with a voice coach also imparts a whole range of non-musical benefits for both adults and children. Keep reading to find out more!

Benefits of Singing Lessons for Adults

In music therapy, singing is often used for healing purposes; it imparts positive emotional and mental benefits. Adults who participate in music display sharper cognitive abilities and a better memory function. Singing has also been shown to improve your posture and breathing.

Benefits of Singing Lessons for Kids

Several studies show a clear link between children who take music lessons and increased intelligence, better grades, and improved focus. Studying music uses a variety of brain processes related to reading, memory, listening, synthesizing, and coordination. 

Practicing music in childhood appears to improve mathematical ability, memory, cognitive function, and spatial intelligence. Studying music also benefits children later in life. Adults who studied music as children show a greater capacity for hearing and understanding language. 

What You'll Learn in Vocal Lessons

Whether you want to take your vocal skills to the stage or just sing better around the house, private lessons are the way to go. You'll benefit from prompt feedback and personalized instruction that you just can't get in a larger choir or simply watching video tutorials. Lesson by lesson, your voice coach will lay out a clear path for reaching your vocal goals.

A professional voice teacher will be able to see any weak points that a director of a choir or group class may not notice. This way, you’ll avoid developing bad habits that can impede your progress down the road and even lead to damaging your voice.

In vocal lessons, you'll learn how to bring the best out of your voice, resulting in your own unique musical expression. This involves developing your tone, your pitch control, and your breathing. You may also study music theory, different musical genres, or work on specific songs in order to perfect your technique. Most students will begin to hear improvement in just a couple of weeks. Below, we’ll go into detail on more of the specific learning topics at each skill level.

Sample Curriculum for Singing Lessons for Beginners

Your first voice lessons focus on evaluating your current abilities, establishing a foundation of skills, and setting you up for success. In beginner singing lessons, your vocal coach may choose to cover the following:

  • Proper posture
  • Breathing techniques
  • Vocal warm-ups
  • Vocal health
  • Tone, range, and vocal qualities
  • Intonation (matching pitches)
  • Introduction to reading music and music theory

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Singing Lessons

Intermediate singing lessons are designed to develop your basic skills further. If you already have some experience or a musical background, intermediate lessons will probably be the best choice for you. During lessons, you may work on the following:

  • Vocal exercises
  • Sight reading
  • Practice pitch changes and control
  • Introduction to vocal diction and singing pronunciation
  • Develop vocal tone
  • Develop singing technique

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Voice Lessons

In advanced lessons, voice teachers focus on improving a well-trained student’s technique, ability, and range. If you’re hoping to be a professional singer and see your name in lights someday, this is the right level for you. Advanced lessons include the following topics:

  • Improve power
  • Extend vocal range
  • Mixed voice
  • Vibrato
  • Ear training
  • Composition and songwriting
  • Audition preparation 

Regardless of your skill level, keep in mind that our private vocal teachers customize lessons to your specific interests, goals, and learning style. Lessons for adults will include more challenging practice and theory. For younger children taking singing lessons for beginners, the curriculum will be more centered around sparking interest and making music fun.

In addition, if you’d like to focus on a particular style, we have coaches who specialize in teaching classical, jazz, opera, gospel, R&B, rock, pop and more.

Find a Vocal Coach Online or Near You

When you're ready to start voice lessons, you'll need to find a qualified vocal coach. A simple search for singing teachers in our directory will provide a list of available candidates both locally and online. Busy parents and their kids can both enjoy the added convenience and flexibility of online lessons.

You'll find a variety of vocal teachers with years of experience teaching and performing. Our instructors are vetted and background checked to ensure you have the best learning experience possible.

To narrow down the list, be sure to read through reviews left by other students. Before your first lesson, think about your goals for learning to sing and any special interests you have. Feel free to send a message to a prospective teacher and discuss these topics before booking your first lesson. Then, enjoy vocal lessons customized to help you reach your goals!

How "Breathy Voice" is Created | The Danger of Breathy Singing

Singing in a “breathy voice” has a mixed reputation among singers and educators, and for good reason: it can be risky. In this article, we’ll discuss the mechanics of singing with a breathy voice, if it’s harmful, and how use to the technique safely. Remember the spectacularly cheesy film “A Walk to Remember”? In this 2002 film, Mandy Moore sings a pop ballad called “Only Hope” using excessive breathiness to create a fragile, emotionally charged aura for her character. …
