Hello! Singing in my studio is a blast! It's fun, exploratory, expressionary, and therapeautic. We work on real technique for the whole body, breathing, relaxation of mind, body, muscles and emotions. We work on music that is for lesson purposes as well as music that you as the student want to sing and work on. Whether it's songs you just love and want to sing and work on, or you have an audition or event to prepare for, or you have other musical goals for yourself, there is a place for all of that in my studio. I also ensure that my singers are able to understand the language of the music itself...the tempo, rhythm, notes, and other markings so that you can pick up any song and be able to figure out new melodies and rhythms on your own.

About Shannon
Hello! My name is Shannon and I absolutely love music! Teaching is a huge passion of mine along with performing and sharing music in service opportunities. I am the oldest of 4 children with 2 awesome parents and I come from a rich heritage of music, theatre, performing and culture. I am married to an amazing man and we have two fur-babies. I am very involved in leadership with my church and love serving the Lord and I am honored to be entrusted with this gift of music to share.

I have been teaching Voice and beginning piano for the past 14 years and I have loved every minute of it. I have worked with students in Voice ranging from 11-Adults, each with different goals, dreams and songs. With piano students, I work with ages 6-Adult, and again, each comes with their own ideas, goals, and songs to work on. I have also done small group s
inging classes for 8-10 year olds who are just a bit too young for the more intensive private vocal training, as well as for teenagers who just love performing in a group setting and supporting and being supported by each other.
I don't do recitals. We don't call them that. I host open mics and my students are all invited to participate. I always participate to be a good example to my students, be vulnerable and support them and I usually invite other professional musicians to share music as well. They appreciate the opportunity to practice their craft and they are a wonderful inspiration to the younger musicians who watch them.
I am a process/experiential/development -based teacher.
I taught Kindermusik for many years in California, then continued in Africa for 3 years and I now teach two young children's classes from my private studio...one for 3.5/4 year olds and one for 5 year olds. These are an absolute blast!
Because of the healing I have personally experienced through music and the way I have seen it heal and help others, I am working towards my Masters in Music Therapy.
Whenever I host a concert, it almost always turns into a benefit. Even when I charge an entrance fee, I still love highlighting the needs in the community or in other parts of the world that we can contribute to.
So, when you work with me, these are things that can be a part of your experience and will be if you would like. But, at the same time, if a student prefers that music lessons are just a quiet and personal thing for themselves to enjoy, process, decompress from the world with, I welcome that completely and that's the magic that happens.

No matter what your goals, our lessons together will be the starting place to achieving them. Not only is the studio a supportive, nurturing place to learn about singing, but it's also a place to have FUN learning about what you are passionate about, MUSIC!

In our first lesson we will learn a little about each other. I will ask what your goals are, what your experiences are, and what you are looking to get out of our lessons together. I will also give you the opportunity to ask about my experience as a singer and as a teacher so you have a better understanding where I am coming from as well.

I believe that the most important foundation of healthy singing is proper breath support. I have many exercises that will help you find the breath support you need for healthy singing. Whether it's Opera, Broadway, Jazz or Pop, the same breathing techniques apply.

We will work on a whole range of singing exercises that will help you improve your range (so those high notes don't seem

About Troy
Originally from Kentucky, I earned my Masters Degree at the Eastman School of Music, studied voice for 23 years with World Renowned Soprano Rita Shane and and several years with master teacher Bill Schuman. I have since sung leading roles all over the world with such companies as the Metropolitan Opera, the Royal Opera House at Covent Garden, The San Francisco Opera, and the Semperoper in Dresden Germany. Let my 20+ years of professional singing and stage experience help you achieve your goals to become the best singer and performer that you can be!

I've had the great honor to work with young singers at various opera companies where I've been a principal artist, and to have given masterclasses at places such as the CoOperative program at Westminster Choir College, Wingate University, Texas Women's University, and University of TX a
t Austin.

I am friendly, supportive and encouraging, and I take great pride in being the best teacher that I can be for my students. If you are just finding out that you want to be a singer, or if you have been in the business for years, I know that I can help you realize your potential!

I am here to help you improve your technique and musicality in a fun atmosphere that promotes health and longevity of singing.

About Laura
Welcome to my studio!

I love getting to know all of my students and helping them achieve their goals. One of my favorite things about teaching is that I can meet musicians (that's you!) at all different levels and with varying interests. Whether you want to learn to sing pop, broadway, classical or just learn a tune on the piano, I am here to help!

I have been teaching for over 14 years. I have taught private lessons, group voice classes, beginning and intermediate piano, beginning music theory, and acting. I have taught in my own private studio as well as at the collegiate level. As your teacher, I will do my best to make sure your learning process is fun and that you feel comfortable. If you are nervous to try singing or piano, don't worry! I have dealt with stage fright myself and love helping my students out with nerves.

I am so proud of the many successes my students have had - from preparing auditions for college music programs (and getting accepted!) to going out for roles in their school musical or choir, or working on a community audition. I have helped my singers gain the confidence to sing at an open mic night, or perform a solo at their local church.

Whatever your goals are, I am here to help you grow and to learn to sing and/or play in a way that is HEALTHY and will help you keep making music life long.

I believe that anyone who can speak can learn to sing! I teach based on music theory, technique, and repertoire building. The three register method I use can be applied to any style of singing from Opera to Pop. I have an Artist Certificate in Voice, a BA in Voice Performance, and an MAT in Choral Conducting. My specialty is Vocal Pedagogy, which means that I teach students the correct way to sing to ensure a safe and healthy instrument. I have been teaching private voice for ten years, and have a proven track record of students who have gone on to be successful in achieving their goals.

About Andrea
I began singing in a local children's choir when I was ten, and haven't looked back since! I attended the Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities in Greenville, SC where I studied Opera and Musical Theater Voice. I then went to the College of Charleston where I completed a BA in Voice Performance and an MAT in Choral Conducting. I love singing, and love teaching others to love singing as well! I teach music full time and am the Musical Theater Director at Porter Gaud in Charleston, SC. I teach voice using registers and correct technique so that my students can sing whatever style of music best suits their interests. I am an avid Vocal Pedagogist and I present at State and National level conferences in the field of healthy singing.

I have my Bachelors degree in Voice. I teach singers of all genres (country, classical, pop, bluegrass, rock…) to sing with confidence and freedom!

I teach an open throat technique (appoggio) that allows the singer to sing with freedom, and access their entire range evenly. I also work with students to develop style, interpretation, languages, and acting ability.

About Josh
I am a professional singer, pianist, songwriter, and recording artist. I graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University with a Bachelors of Music, specifically voice.

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano for 16 years, and contemporary keyboard for 7 of those. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

As a professional recording a
rtist I frequently take trips to Nashville for co-writing, recording, and meeting with record labels. I have written with well-known writers like Mia Fieldes from Hillsong, Tony Wood from Provident Label Group, Stu G from Delirious?, and Jon Steingard from Hawk Nelson. I love to mentor students who want to become effective, dynamic songwriters.

My personal passion is contemporary music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

As a graduate of the Juilliard School and having performed worldwide, I want to share how fun, healthy and effective sing is possible with consistence and informed work! No matter your goals, lets build on the skills you already poses and confidence in your own abilities. Let's sing!

The key to great singing is enthusiasm, focus and some hard work. I have worked with students of all ages and my goal is to get you singing the right way and take you from shower diva to confident performer.

A LITTLE ABOUT ME:

As a professional singer and graduate of The Juilliard Sch
ool and working Opera singer, I have had the great fortune of training and performing with some of the best in the business.

With performances at Carnegie Hall and with major orchestras such as the Toronto, Vancouver and Seattle Symphonies and around the world, I feel this gives me a unique perspective on the challenges and successes that are possible with a fun, yet focused and healthy technique based approach. Whether a beginners, intermediate or advanced singers looking to hone your skills in musical theatre classical, jazz and even pop voice.

My goal is a well rounded, relaxed yet supported vocal tone with a focus on breath, and feeling rather than by ear. This ensures that no matter what the repertoire, the situation, or the acoustics of the room, you are always focused on healthy, articulate and projected singing.

Classical voice and Opera are a very unique style to sing. It takes much training and time for your voce to mature naturally. It is a beautiful art form. It is a foundational style. Understanding classical will help you to understand other styles. it will give you so many important skills, such as phrasing, breathing, form, understanding the song and character of the music and so much more. I would love to help you grow in your natural talent.
Lesson:
It is very important to feel comfortable when learning something new so that you are not afraid to fail. Getting over the fear of failing is the initial part that will free you to experiment with your voice and really grow. You will find a safe space here to do that.
In our lessons we will work on vocal agility, range, improvisation, healthy singing and healthy projection, diction, harmony, different genres and music theory.
I am so excited to get to know you and

As a classically trained vocalist, I believe technique is imperative to vocal lessons. Learning the correct way to sing allows for the best tone quality and application to any genre of music.

About Stephanie
As a passionate musician, I strive to find the gifts in all of my students by instilling a good relationship that fosters musical growth. Teaching piano and voice has been the most rewarding and integral part of my professional career.
A graduate of Northwest Missouri State University, I was actively involved as a music major as I gained my bachelor of science in music education. I performed as a member of the Celebration show choir as well as the University Chorale. My piano training began at the age of six and continues today. I now enjoy singing with my church choir, and singing as a soloist at my church.
One thing that has been important to me as I raised my children is that they were exposed to music and developed a true love of it. As young adults, we now enjoy as a family singing and playing instruments together to share our gi
ft of music with others.
