Private Opera Voice Teacher

During my time with students, I strive to assist them in taking risks, discovering the joy of music, and making progress with their singing. No matter what their goals are- All-State Choir, opera, musical theatre, or just having fun, I love helping them reach them. By looking at different genres of vocal music, we will focus on many different aspects of singing, from music theory, to expressive performance, to the foundation of healthy singing.

I believe that every student is unique and learns in his or her own way. Therefore, I tailor the pace and focus of lessons on each student’s interests and abilities. I believe it is integral for all students to have an understanding of music theory and therefore, work on theory and sight-reading. In addition, I think a well-rounded musical education is key, and work on an array of genres with my students including folk songs, art songs, and musical theatre. Students will work on 2-5 songs at once, and will consider a song "learned" once ...

About Meg

At the age of 4 I began producing musicals in my basement with my sister. This progressed to acting classes, piano lessons, and eventually the school musical in sixth grade. I began taking voice lessons when I was in eighth grade and have never looked back. Through high school, I focused on both classical and musical theatre genres, having leads in high school and community musicals and operettas. While attending the University of Delaware for my Bachelor of Music, I majored in Applied Music: Voice and had the privilege of performing lead roles in Sweeney Todd, The Pirates of Penzance, The Marriage of Figaro, and Die Fledermaus. In addition, I performed two recitals. I was also fortunate enough to be a member of the University of Delaware Chorale, traveling to both China and Spain for tours and competitions. I then attended UD for my Mast

er of Music in Vocal Performance where I maintained a full studio of undergraduate voice minors as a Graduate Teaching assistant.

I took my first pedagogy class at UD and began teaching voice lessons at the Community Music School during my junior year. My experience as a teaching assistant shaped me into the teacher that I am today. I love teaching and helping students reach goals! With my thorough pedagogical training and varied performance experience, I have a great deal to offer my students.

Words are what separate the voice from any other instrument. Therefore, I will work with you on ways to examine the poetry and lyrics of each song in order to portray the message of the words.

Private Opera Voice Teacher

With over 10 years of teaching and performance experience, I can help you reach your goals. 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.

About Cindy

Regardless of where your musical interests lie, I can help you improve your skills! Growing up, I fell in love with playing and singing all styles of music! I've delved into classical, jazz, R&B, soul, gospel, reggae, soca, pop and musical theater, and I can teach you how to apply proper technique to the genre(s) of your choice!

If you're looking to become a better singer, we will focus on finding the beauty and power in your voice in a healthy manner. Vocal health is an important component of everything I teach, and I work to eliminate strain and vocal fatigue. We will work on balancing your vocal registers to give you control over the troublesome middle range. With a healthy foundation in place, we will fine tune your skills by addressing pitch accuracy, vocal control, phrasing, dynamics, expression and microphone technique.

If y

ou're interested in playing piano, you will learn how to read music and/or play by ear. You'll learn scales, chords, arpeggios, sight-reading, and basic music theory. For singers who are interested in piano, I've developed a great technique to teach you how to accompany yourself.

For songwriters, I can help you write stronger lyrics and set them to music appropriately.

In general, I'm pretty upbeat and fun. However, I expect you to practice. When you practice, you hear and feel the difference and everyone's happy! If you don't practice, you'll remain in the same place, and it's frustrating for everyone. :( Please, please, please practice! :)

My degree in music education and wide range of experience allows me to accommodate different learning styles. I have a knack for breaking down seemingly difficult or mysterious concepts in a way that's easy to understand. I also understand the demands of being a full time musician, and can offer advice to students who are interested in going that route.

I would love to help you enhance your enjoyment of music by making it fun and easy for you to learn!

I am excited about my teacher and my lesson. Cindy was not only patient but she explained things to me so simply. I found it quicker and easier to understand because of the way she explained things to me than when I have had explanations by my last two teachers. She is cheerful, friendly and has a beautiful spirit.
I am also very happy her location is convenient and not far from my home. THANK YOU!!

Private Opera Voice Teacher

Students will learn the proper Italian traditions of the Bel Canto style first and eventually how to appropriately apply these traditions to the later Verismo style of singing opera if vocally appropriate for the student.

These lessons will start with the same approach as the classical voice lessons since the same bel canto technique is fundamental and necessary to performing Verismo. We will go over what is appropriate to the various opera styles.

All singing lessons begin at age 13.

About Christine

The Exquisite Voice, Inc.

Christine is a professional vocal coach with an exceptional reputation. She is the owner of The Exquisite Voice, Inc. Currently home in Springfield Va.

As a D.C. native, Christine has taught extensively in the DMV area for 10 years and is now taking her business/work to New York.

She is considered an expert in her field for achieving high quality vocal technique that can be implemented in all legitimate singing styles.

Christine is a fearless technician in the vocal arts, willing to put her knowledge and know how against the best in the field.

Achievable, high quality, professional results that captures and highlights a singer’s natural voice is what I am after because it brings the most joy to ourselves and to others.

Straightforward technique that removes uncertainty and doubt.

Learning to have authori

ty over your instrument to really grow into an individual artist and communicator.

Always honoring the instrument that a person has by guiding them to really learn the fullness of their abilities.

There is nothing more compelling than a voice that is natural and confident in their ability and accessing technique consistently is vital to creating this assurance and peace.

I am able to rapidly diagnosis a full range of vocal issues and begin to work towards strengthening deficient elements in relation and respect to the singer’s entire technique.

This will take time, but I make it clear exactly why this is the focus so we can work efficiently and cooperatively together.

It is important to reveal issues in a highly apparent manner, yet to be supportive and respectful of the student’s voice while motivating change to take place. I try to make it extremely clear through the exercises and rep I personally select to highlight a capability that is lacking by giving a student the right challenges where they can see they are not fully demonstrating a vocal element.

It often times is things they have been told in the past, but aren’t able to identify the problem due to lack of clarity clouded by other elements from past instruction or not provided the right tools to overcome their vocal issues in a realistic way that leads to continue success in their process. Meaning I really isolate and get to the heart of issues.

I have a signature method of highlighting issues and making corrections. I am very particular about explaining the process so that it makes sense to each student and can be accessible for them.

Another strength I have is I am able to identify the student’s learning style and am resourceful in the way I teach.

Together we will learn to develop a practical process and routine that works consistently for you based on your own personal needs as an artist.

The goal is that you will be able to instruct yourself successfully every time by thoroughly learning your instrument’s capabilities through care and guidance provided in our lessons.

I expect this from each student in their time, so that they can become confident in the choices they make to direct themselves. It is important to become independent since you are the one in control of your voice alone, and I intend to get you closer to that goal every lesson by making your voice more relatable to you by providing the proper understanding and resources to achieve this.

This is how world class musicians think, that they will be able to lead themselves in their process and trust their choices without too much worry after because the foundation and thoughtfulness to their decisions have already been made over time to where it is now intuitively inspired while performing. You can only access what you have trained (technical) or allowed (emotional).

Not only trust, but enjoy the freedom to do so. It might be a freighting concept to many, it was for me to think I must take full control, but you must eventually be assured about who you are and that you have more than enough to manage.

Something we will discuss a lot from the emotional standpoint, not allowing our fears or need/expectation to be perfect stand in our way of the bigger picture. We will develop a healthy relationship with our voice.

Every necessary element required for excellent singing will be explained. It is not possible in one or two lessons however.

It is real time and work. I do require you trust the process to a reasonable degree and know that I will always have your best intentions at heart. I have worked with many issues and types of people and have a lot of insight to pull from. Mostly people think their issues are unique, when in reality they are common. Nor do I get easily confused. So rest assure that your voice is always inspiring to me and I love to help people find more meaning in their art.

I can confidently say, almost more than any other instructor you have had we will thoroughly go over every element.

It is necessary that a student knows what is already amazing about their technique so they do not expel or replace it while working on their challenges. I cannot emphasis this enough. I have found this to be the biggest issue with passing on good instruction in the last 40 years from all institutes of voice.

Every voice comes in with something to build upon. There is not one voice, even the most challenging that doesn’t have an element right, it just might not be used appropriately while lacking all the other supportive elements, however it is there and that’s where we will start if that’s the case.

That’s why so many students, particularly very talented ones get lost in their training, because they do not realize that this has happened, so their natural abilities they cannot explain if they become teachers or professionals, which you must be able to explain everything or worst, they lose their natural ability and do not understand why.

This is also another fear of people who have natural ability, but if you have an instructor who understands you and these factors, you will be in good hands to find greater success vocally.

We need to identify our technique simply and readily every time in a way that we can articulate to ourselves.

This is a process and hard work (particularly emotional/reasonable expectation) is required on your end. More importantly developing trust for the process because what you do with your voice is up to you in the end alone and to displace that is neither helpful or honest. It is your voice! Always.

We will be doing honest work, look forward to it:D
💗💗💗

I am extremely generous as a teacher, you will come to find this is true. I promise to do my end of the deal and give you everything I have got in terms of my knowledge and insight, you just have to give yourself the opportunity to really commit to trying full heartedly. The lesson is for you. If I do not know something I say it.

I am a dramatic soprano and I have continued my vocal studies vigorously with Mrs. Fabian Bravo, a long term principal singer at The Met, who was taught formerly by Mr. Luciano Pavarotti.

I am very confident in the Italian Bel Canto technique and extensively in all popular genres, including jazz, ballads, R&B, Broadway, traditional, etc.

Technique I cover is creating legitimate support via fully integrating the body, while from the body’s relative support, applying highly efficient/directed air that is responsible for the quality of the voice’s capabilities and range of elements. Everything is created from these two fundamental elements.

We will also cover muscle release (throat, spine, tongue, facial, soft palate and accessing resonators directly, releasing the larynx and closing the vocal folds genuinely and appropriate air and relative use to the other elements, accessing legitimate chest and head voice, mixing/centering the voice appropriately with highly disciplined air and body support) legitimate dynamics with muscles released/throat open, accessing internal naturally covered space that can thoroughly release the voice through the skull and centered in which the air pressure/direction determines the dynamics, while not improperly closing the muscles or inappropriately moving the larynx/overly directing and dropping into one register, proper articulation that enhances/does not interrupt or cut off breath support/the body inappropriately/use of compressed air and direction that directly effects head voice, chest, middle mix access that most professionals do not have disciplined and create through other secondary means. This is more all equates to flexibility, strength and freedom to be endlessly expressive. Everything in balance and relation to become competent and proficient. The best part is really being able to enjoy your singing in the moment.

Looking forward to working together!

Very warmly,
Christine Padua

I have been singing opera for 7 years now, and Christine had the most thorough teaching process by far! I found my real voice underneath all the conformity I had been taught through choir and am now moving through singing more powerful and with my "real voice." She is open to workshopping repertoire that you are interested in, and suggests things that will help you grow your voice while not pushing an agenda, so you feel as though you have lots of artistic freedom.
Also just a super warm and authentic person. Overall a great experience!

Christine is a Godsend! Prior to working with her, I studied classical voice and opera with several instructors. Christine is by far the best teacher and wish I had met her sooner!

As an accomplished singer herself, she is able to identify challenging areas and help improve technique. I’m now attempting pieces with confidence that I never would have attempted previously. And, I find the sessions very relaxing and enjoyable. She inspired me to push myself further and feel like I’m getting great results! Well worth the investment.

Private Opera Voice Teacher

Laura's lessons are fun, high-energy, and tailored to meet every student's goals, whether it is to become a Broadway star or living room diva (or divo)! With over a decade of experience teaching both privately and in classrooms, Laura loves to help singers and actors excel at auditions, competitions, and performances by guiding the performer to connect with the storyteller inside. Her students have performed on and off Broadway, at Carnegie Hall, in national tours, on TV, and in theaters all across the US and Japan. And you can be next!

About Laura

Hello! I am a NYC-based singer, pianist, actress, and animal-lover. Born and raised in Los Angeles, my artistic career began as a classical pianist, performing in venues across California, Japan, and Austria from a very young age. As a singer, I performed around the world with the Broadway tour of Avenue Q, and I've been seen in dozens of musical theatre and Shakespeare productions throughout the U.S. and even in Russia!

By combining my two passions of singing and playing piano, I served as Artist-in-Residence for California Musical Theatre Company, Sacramento Theatre Company, and the cell theatre in NY.

I've been teaching in NYC for over a decade, and my passion is to inspire the next generation of creative people of all ages.

When it comes to music, there is a quote that I love: "Every expert was once a beginner." This quote reflect

s my philosophy on pursuing the arts: that it's never too late to start and that no matter where you are in your musical journey, practice is the key to success. Mastering a skill requires discipline and dedication, and my goal is to help you find joy and inspiration along the way.

My lessons focus on building a strong foundation of technique, which gives you the freedom to explore your creativity and musicality; it is very important for me that my students strive not only for technical precision but also for musical artistry. Together, we will set a practice schedule that you can adhere to regularly, and I'll make sure to send you away with specific instructions each week on how to practice effectively.

With my fun, high-energy approach to teaching, you are guaranteed to enjoy the journey as you take significant steps toward becoming an expert.​ I'm looking forward to meeting you and getting started soon!

I met Laura at Harvard University when we were both doing our MFA degrees in acting. Since our program was not a Musical Theater one and I was not a singer, I started to take private lessons with her to compliment some of the training in singing we were getting there.

Laura is a fantastic singer and actor. She has an incredible ear as well as great knowledge and experience of what makes a singing performance pop. All this makes her an outstanding coach.

Even now after graduation, I am still training with her. Our focus now is on continuing the development of my singing voice. My goal is to reach a level where I have the skill and confidence to audition professionally for musicals, and I know I am in great hands.

Isabel is very professional and fun to work with. In our first few lessons, we worked on solidifying some basic fundamentals of singing (proper breathing, posture, etc.) and have since moved on to some simple songs/arias. She is a wonderful teacher for beginners like me, but with her skill level, I can see her as being an exceptional teacher for more advanced students as well.

"Jon is an excellent teacher. He has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to repertoire ideas for ALL voice types.

What I appreciate most is his sensiti
vity to your goals, and the fact that he is able to come up with a plan to reach said goals. He always has a clear idea in mind of the destination of each goal, while also being flexible and attentive to figuring out which exercises work best for each student's needs & levels.

He has a great ear, and is able to correct and answer vocal questions or concerns. I always appreciate checking in with him when I have a question or when I'm excited to celebrate when I've had a break through in vocal technique.

His love of music and helping students connect to their voices is evident. I'm proud to work with someone who not only has credentials from some of the top music schools & programs in the country, but is also eager to share this knowledge with each of his students.

You will work hard, but also have fun. He is generous in the way he helps each student learn to prepare their music (studying, learning, memorizing) and work on their technique.

Students at every level should reach out to Jon. Share your goals, work hard, and I hope you also experience of joy of growing as not only a musician, but also an artist, as a result of working with him."

"Mary is the kind of person that brings happiness to her surroundings.
I have studied voice with many teachers, but Mary's coaching is the first time that
I really understand what I need to improve in my singing practices. Mary’s advice is very accurate and she pinpoints these flaws. Only half a year has passed since I started practicing singing with her; however, I can profess that she is the best teacher I have had so far. I thought my voice was becoming rusty as I aged, but it is a happy surprise that it is improving! I also feel healthier since I started to learn from Mary.
Her voice training is good for anyone who wishes to improve her/his singing technique regardless of the genre of music/songs. I recommend her singing lessons for opera voice training, popular singing from the heart, or hobby singing and body conditioning. Mary's coverage is really wide."

"I can't imagine where I'd be if I had not crossed paths with Fawn. She is one talented woman. I am a coloratura soprano with a degree in vocal performance
from the New England Conservatory of Music; when I met Fawn I was struggling to simply keep my head above water as I attempted to readjust to life in the city after spending several years recovering from a traumatic vocal chord injury. I had tried everything traditional Western medicine had to offer as well as several alternative healing methods but nothing was working to get me back on track towards the performing career that I wanted. Many practitioners that I had met with previously had at most a shallow understanding of the unique and very complicated physical and emotional demands of a professional operatic career and I was dispirited, hopeless and seriously considering giving up the thought of ever performing at all much less professionally again.
Since I began studying with her last summer, she has helped me find a physical and mental equilibrium that I previously thought was unattainable. In addition, I have gained an invaluable and specific practical understanding of my personal challenges and strengths as a direct result of the unique and deeply insightful ways in which she handles any problem I bring to her. In a few short months my life and outlook has changed tremendously. I had the courage to audition for and consequently booked my first professional gig since my injury, began the process of planning a production of an original composition and have been encouraged by my teacher to seriously consider singing for both national and international auditions next year. If there is a "Vocal Whisperer" Fawn is it.
To be truly understood as a performing artist (and one dealing with a vocal injury while attempting a career, is a rare and amazing experience. Not only is she amazingly well versed in several nutritional, spiritual and physical disciplines but her unique ability to adjust them into a specialized program for your specific situation and personality type make the service she offers invaluable and like nothing else I've ever experienced. Not only is she deeply empathic, compassionate, giving and sympathetic but she is also refreshingly disciplined in her ability to organize you and get to the heart of the matter. She tailors your lessons in a way that makes them easily accessible and memorable. She has the rare ability to inspire you. She never makes you feel judged, she never 'shames' you into compliance (like my other coaches did), but instead Fawn encourages and wins you over with a warm and comforting sense of humor and grace.
I am deeply grateful to have had and continue to have the opportunity to work with such an original, remarkable and talented individual. I can't recommend her highly enough and personally consider my lessons an essential part of a professional vocal career for anyone who wants to sing correctly and safely (and) stay safe, healthy, happy and sane."

"Michelle and Robert are wonderful patient and professional. My daughter 15 years old benefited greatly from the many techniques (classical and operatic)
taught by Michelle and Robert. They always stress the importance of vocal health, even incorporating stretching, proper exercises, breathing, and proper vowel sounds. Not only did they prepare my daughter vocally but taught her facial structure, posture and how to add her acting and emotion into her signing while still having a great projection. An added benefit being instructed by this wonderful duo is having the knowledge from both female and male seasoned professionals. I highly recommend you meet with them at least once and see the difference. I can't wait to see them again. Jess and Sophie"
