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

Private Opera Voice Teacher

The ability to communicate and connect with each individual student is, for me, the only way to teach effectively. My approach to teaching applied voice is to lay a stable foundation, specific to each student and voice, while methodically eliminating obstacles and acquired habits which prevent the student from fully realizing their potential. I assess the needs of each student individually and seek to meet them where they are at any given point in their development. Inquiry is a vital aspect of my teaching practice as I seek to ensure that the student understands the concepts being introduced and that they are developing the critical thinking skills necessary to become autonomous in their singing.
I see my role of voice teacher as that of a facilitator, guide, and trouble-shooter. As such my primary teaching objective is to empower the student to internalize, apply, and find relevance in the information I am sharing.
From a technical perspective, my teaching remains firmly rooted ...

Julian has truly been a God-send for me. A brilliant, musician, technician and teacher. He is intelligent,patient, sensitive…so highly in tune with the voice. To say he knows the instrument well is an understatement.  And, just as important, he knows how to work with you as an individual. He has such a skillful way, as any great teacher should, of explaining what he is trying to convey in a variety of ways to help YOU as the student understand. Not all teachers are able to do that, but Julian can. And he makes sure that you understand so you can be your own technician and master of your instrument. I trust Julian. He has helped me and continues to help me understand and find MY voice.
Tara
I highly recommend Julian as a teacher. Before studying with him, my voice had a growth spurt, and none of the “well known” teachers I had studied with knew what to do with it. My voice was in pieces, and Julian was the only teacher that was able to help me. He rebuilt my voice, and I couldn’t be more grateful.

Julian was able to find my true voice, and I love that I sound like ME! Everyone in the studio has very distinct and different voices from one another. He’s able to find your true and individual vocal potential; he doesn’t just “bandage” the problem. He truly is the best!
Joel
Julian Kwok is a technician's technician. He can take large, unruly instruments and whisper them into efficiently wielded, marketable product. He can develop voices of any type to their full potential, but his specialty is, arguably, large voices. He expects a high level of commitment, so my advice: do the work. Doing the work will maximize your experience. He's keenly sensitive and understanding. If you're serious about a career and developing your voice in a healthy way, this is the guy.

I am a firm believer that there isn't a single singing method out
there that really works for everyone. But rather it is about observation
of yourself without judgement and TRULY understanding how vocal
production works in your body in relation to your breath, your mind, and your soul. I am not here to dictate how you should sing in a certain way. I am here to help you and guide you in understanding your body in relation to sound production and to cultivate your own method of vocal technique in your own words and in your own logic that actually works for you.

This was my first experience with voice lessons, and Cris the best teacher I could have hoped for! He has introduced me to all sorts of music techniques that I’m sure I will need when I leave to study music in college, and he helped me to prepare any vocal requirements I might have to fill. He is always patient, knowledgeable, and easy to get along with; and he has inspired me to continue studying opera in the future. I would highly recommend him for any level of vocalist! :)

Online Opera Voice Teacher

As a trained opera singer, my expertise is in classical vocal performance. Due to my experience performing theatre repertoire as well, however, I have been teaching voice through both classical and theatre repertoire for the past 3 years.
I put an emphasis on learning the fundamentals of singing first while also incorporating familiar pieces for each of my students in order to keep him/her engaged and having fun.
I am here for each of my students' and want them to be the best musicians they can be :).

I wrote the review below because I was mad at her for personal reasons... Shes actually a great teacher. Sorry Cara
Estevan
DO NOT! I REPEAT DO NOT take opera vocal lessons from her. She learned from someone who cant even sing. She actually believes falsetto is unhealthy and I spent years avoiding the best part of my voice due to her misinformation. Any look at vocal pedagogy will confirm that falsetto is indeed a healthy voice mechanism used to develop a strong voice especially in tenors and she has chosen to be willfully ignorant due to either bad teaching or just not caring. Wolf in sheep's clothing people. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

She's a wonderful teacher! Very caring and patient but to the point. She knows her stuff!

"Results within the first session

Jordan is an amazing teacher. I have never worked with someone so patient. When we began working together it took me the entire hour before I could understand each new idea of her technique. She would never grow angry or frustrated with me.
Before I began taking lessons from Jordan I had terrible habits and my voice was never consistent. Some days I sounded decent and others I could barely phonate. Because of Jordan I can go into an audition or performance and successfully sing even thought I am shaking with nerves She has taught me a technique that always works whether it's that time of the month or I am especially tired. Jordan has opened up my voice to what it should be and has taught me how to tap into my resonance to create a larger, more natural sound that allows me to be heard over a piano and or small orchestra. I highly recommend Jordan as a teacher. It only takes one hour to hear improvement."

"A great teacher for adult learners!

I am classically trained in both the piano and violin. It had been about 10 years since I last had any private lessons and 8 years since I last sang in a choir. I was excited to get back to music.

JoAnn has been an extremely supportive instructor. I am shy to perform but she put me at ease immediately and has encouraged me to be more confident and daring in trying new techniques. What mainly sets her apart from my past teachers is that she also has a way of giving easy to understand instructions on how to change various parts of your body to produce the sound you want. As a result my singing has improved immensely over the past 6 months since starting lessons. I now sing in a professional level choir and love the mature, full sounding quality of voice I have been able to produce with JoAnn's help!"

Desiree Soteres is the perfect vocal teacher for students of all ages. She is has an excellent performance, as well as academic, background. She is patient and knows how to draw the best out of her students.

Desiree's studio is as fine as any you could possibly find in the most professional of settings and far exceeded my expectations. In addition to this, the location is VERY safe and has easy access to public transportation. Parking is also easily found on its quiet, tree-lined street.

8 Beautiful Opera Arias for Beginner Singers

It is always exciting when a vocal student is ready to start studying his or her first operatic aria! One of the best things about being a classical singer is knowing you have so many great years ahead of you. After all, you’re considered in your prime in your 40s. That being said, realize that the voice you have now and the repertoire you’ll first study will be very, very different from what you sing later on in your career. It’s absolutely crucial that you sing repertoire that is …
