I have been teaching voice for more than ten years. I teach a classical technique which can be applied to any style of singing. I am on the faculty of two universities as a voice teacher, and also have private studios in three locations. I am primarily interested in helping serious students prepare for auditions, competitions, and conservatory admissions. Please see my website for more information about my work.

I have had a vocal coach before meeting Pam, but she absolutely took it to another level. Pamela does a good job with teaching the mechanics of singing, as she pin points which muscles the body is using and how to use them properly when singing. She has a variety of warm ups and stretches to get your voice and body prepared to perform and is very good and pushing you to become your best. If you are a serious singer and would like to take the knowledge of your craft a step further, I would definitely recommend.

Pamela is a teacher.

Pamela was very patient with my young daughter. She taught her the beginning stages of reading music and her voice became clearer and louder because of the confidence she gained during her sessions. I would recommend Pamela as a singing instructor for any age but she was so patient and encouraging for my young daughter. We loved it.

Hello!

I am a working, professional operatic tenor in the Philadelphia area. I have been teaching for the past 6 years in San Diego, Houston, and Salt Lake City. I have sung with many professional operatic companies including San Diego Opera, Aspen Opera Theatre, The Santa Fe Opera, Des Moines Metro Opera, and Opera de Tijuana.

My students receive world-class training as well as a highly personalized approach that ensures their goals are attained. I emphasize a foundation of healthy vocal technique. We then use those principals in whichever genre my student wishes --- music theatre, pop, rock, jazz, gospel, country, or opera. Our sessions are relaxed and fun while also focusing on key concepts and repertoire that the student wants to learn.

Whether singing is a dream job for you or you would just like to learn how to use your voice for fun, I can help you to use your voice healthily so that the only thing you need to do is enjoy the singing experience.

Philadelphia, PA

Lessons consist of learning a solid vocal technique, and learning various repertoire from Broadway, pop, to classical. Also, performing skills will be incorporated, so that the singer feels comfortable acting the song as well. I strongly believe that singers must be actors, and that is what makes us different from instrumentalists. It is also a lot of fun! For children or adults who are willing, I also teach sight singing and spend some of the lessons time learning some basic reading skills.

About Sandra
Sandra began her training at the Settlement Music School in Philadelphia. She is a two time recipient of the Mario Lanza Award, and holds a B.M. degree in opera from the Philadelphia College of Performing Arts. She studied acting at both the Wilma and Walnut Theaters in Philadelphia. In New York, she studied Shakespeare at the HB Studios, and received on-camera training at the Weisst- Barron Commercial School. Sandra is a member of Actor's Equity.

Sandra was engaged for seven years at Theater des Westens in Berlin, Germany, where she performed extensively in Musicals and Operetta. She also toured throughout Germany with the ensemble "Operetten Express". In the U.S., Sandra has toured nationally with "Man of La Mancha" and "Carousel", and has performed leading roles in many regional theaters. She also performed in the Off-Broadway
Musical "Mamaleh". Sandra has performed in over fifty productions of Musicals, Operetta, and Opera. Some of her favorite roles include: Aldonza (Man of La Mancha), Desiree (A Little Night Music), Marguerite (The Scarlet Pimpernel), Antonia (The Tales of Hoffmann), and Lauretta (Gianni Schicchi).

Most recently, she has performed the role of Lynn Fontanne in Ten Chimneys at Old Academy Players, and played one of the principal roles in Jacque Brel Is Alive And Well and Living In Paris at The Steel River Playhouse.

As a director, Sandra has staged operas for Center City Opera Theater, the Delaware Valley Opera Company, Boheme Opera New Jersey, and the New York Metro Vocal Arts Ensemble. She is currently singing concerts with the vocal group "Touch of Classics", and can be seen in commercials for Time Warner, Cuisinart, The Skooter Store, and Aspercreme.

*** Lesson Details ***
Our lessons will be relaxed and informal. My goal is to make you the best you can be. We will work on giving you a solid vocal technique so that you can approach any style of music with a good foundation. We will also work on learning to read music, and most importantly work on songs that will bring out the actor in you.

Students will learn proper singing technique and songs suited to their personal interests in order to establish a solid foundation.

About Maria
At a young age, I found my passion through playing and listening to jazz and classical music and experiencing the interpersonal connections music creates. From performing to teaching, I love to share my passion for music with those around me.

Since graduating from Temple University with a B.M. in Music Education and Jazz Studies, I have played with musical groups in Europe and recently became a K-8 general music teacher in Philadelphia. Playing and teaching around the world and at home has given me great insight into how students need to be taught: with relevancy to their own lives while maintaining artistry and integrity.

My teaching experience ranges from private lessons and jazz workshops to summer music camps and K-12 music classes. I love teaching and will probably never stop!

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe it is impor
tant to solidify the foundations of music, so that the student can grow into a knowledgeable, expressive musician. My lessons are taught with a personal and energetic approach leaving the student excited and eager to further explore music. I always make sure that the student is having fun!

Learning an instrument is all about personal growth as a musician. I will help my students become better musicians week by week as long as they are willing to practice and come prepared for the lesson.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I will provide a metronome, tuner, music stand and some music books/repertoire. Student may need to provide their own lesson books.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical techniques, improvisation, composition and songwriting.

****Cancellation Policy:
Out of common courtesy, please notify me at least 24 hours in advance if you need to cancel and/or reschedule a lesson, and you will not be charged. NOTE: You will be charged for the lesson if you cancel less than 24 hours before the scheduled lesson. No notification of cancellation will result in being charged for the lesson as well. Bottom line, please communicate to me through call/text/e-mail in ADVANCE if you need to cancel a lesson in order not to be charged for the lesson. *********************************

Cancelled Lessons = You have contacted me in advance and you will not be charge. This lesson will be rescheduled.

Missed Lessons = You have NOT contacted me in advance and you will be charge. ** If you have to miss a lesson, we will reschedule a make-up time for that lesson, free of charge.

She is a great teacher and I would def have kept taking lessons from her if not she moved out of town. I am really hoping that she will return and do lessons with me again.

About Charlea Lyn G.

Close
Profile_107879_pi_GRIECO.CHARLEALYN.HEADSHOT
Philadelphia, PA

View Full Profile

I have been teaching for the past 8 years and am passionate about healthy, comfortable singing. My lessons are structured to include vocal warmups/technique exercises, sight singing to strengthen musicianship, and then the working of repertoire. I will have suggestions for repertoire, but also am happy to work on anything the student may be interested in.

About Charlea Lyn
Hello! My name is Charlea Lyn, and I want to begin by thanking you for taking a look at my profile. It has always been one of my firm beliefs that anyone can sing as singing can be defined by “uttering words or sounds in succession with musical modulations of the voice.” Therefore, with this mentality in mind I feel as though it is not a job, but more a privilege to be able to teach people to sing.

My parents say I started singing before I could talk, however, I seriously started taking lessons when I was 14. Over the course of my lessons, I fell in love with opera, and decided that was what I wanted to pursue as a career path. That decision led me to SUNY Fredonia, where I received my BM in Music Education and Vocal Performance, and later to the San Francisco Conservatory of Music where I received my MM in Vocal Performance in May
'13 under the tutelage of Catherine Cook.

One of the most important things that I have learned thus far, is that singing is a truly expressive art form that requires hard work, diligence, and commitment. It is my goal to bring each of my students the farthest I can in healthily developing their technique as well as work on the emotional portrayal and fundamental building blocks of music. Although I teach each student specific to his or her individual needs and desires, my lessons usually consist of three parts - technique exercises, sight singing, and repertoire. Furthermore, other things that stay consistent are a comfortable and safe environment for the student, my undivided attention, all the information that I have to share with others, and most importantly FUN!

Although it is my personal decision to pursue opera and classical music, I have experience in musical theatre and am comfortable teaching a variety of genres. I truly believe that although each genre is different, the foundation and principles of healthy singing are the same.

Not every teacher is right for every student. However, I do my best to give all my students lessons in a comfortable and productive learning environment. I hope that you will take the next step of your path towards healthy and beautiful vocal production with me. Thank you for your time and consideration and I hope to hear from you soon!

Last year my 16-year old and 13-year-old daughter both started taking lessons with Erin and although they came in at very different levels, I was floored with how much they have each grown as singers—in their technique, artistry, and confidence. Erin was able to pinpoint their individual needs and help them each improve in a way that made them enjoy singing even more. My 13-year-old had never before Erin found a teacher who could keep her motivated. Beyond what she taught them, Erin is a wonderful advocate for my daughters and encourages and supports them through their auditions, performances, and competitions. I am so thankful for her impact on my daughters’ lives.

New Brunswick, NJ

My goal when working with students is to teach them to sing in a fun and healthy way while improving their musicianship, confidence, and love of music!

My teaching style focuses firstly on healthy singing technique --- finding ways to sing that are sustainable, healthy, appropriate, and easy to understand. From there, I work with students on musicality and expression, basic music theory and sightreading, and exploring new repertoire and styles.

About Joshua
I received my bachelor's degree in Voice from Susquehanna University, where I served as a student voice teacher and a music theory tutor. I am currently completing my master's degree in musicology at Mason Gross School of the Arts, where I also studied opera performance, taught undergraduate music surveys, privately tutored Diction, and directed opera department productions.

I have participated in a number of different musical ensembles and performances including operas, recitals, choirs, a cappella groups, musicals, and liturgical music.

Through my own vocal journey, I have worked with numerous teachers, voice professionals and medical specialists concerning vocal faults and health issues. This has fostered my pedagogical understanding of the voice and my emphasis on vocal health.

My approach with students is to find a natural, healt
hy, and unique sound that comes with good technique, care of the voice, and musical knowledge. Supplemented by regular practice, my lessons will address the individual needs of every student; just like a fingerprint, every voice is unique and presents unique challenges.

In addition to voice lessons, I teach beginning piano and music theory lessons, establishing a firm musical foundation for those who wish to supplement their voice lessons or improve their performance on another instrument.
