VOICE FOR SINGERS, SPEAKERS & ACTORS: You'll learn sequential detailed exercises that free and strengthen your voice. You'll understand how your instrument works, what parts of your voice are blocked and what to do about that. You'll be able to combine your emotional life on your voice without tension and blockages. You'll learn how to approach and perform scripts, text and songs in preparation for audition and performance. And, you'll experience the JOY of using your voice.

You will learn how to utilize your breath, proper placement and build vocal power.

About Kathryn

Kathryn has been teaching my 13 year old both voice and guitar. My daughter is just starting out in both and is learning a lot. Kathryn is friendly and has been so great at working with us when my daughter was sick or when we're needing to reschedule. She's been having lessons for a little over a month and her experience has been great. We're looking forward to continuing lessons.

Amazing!!! A bright, joyful light!
Thiago
My experience with Kathy has been great. It's been roughly five months and I learned a lot and I'm also much more confident to sing. Learning the right techniques is crucial. Kathy is extremely patient and she adapts the classes to the student goals and aspirations. English is not my first language and she was also always very respectful and patient in explaining everything twice or maybe three times until I get it.

The process of unlocking, discovering, and understanding your voice is an intimate and exciting process and I love to partner with my students on this journey. I have had incredible teachers in my life who have inspired me tremendously, and it is my goal to build a trusting relationship with my students in this same way. I truly believe that anybody can sing, and I realize how important it is that my students feel comfortable and safe trying out new things and expressing vulnerability.

Lessons will be completely individualized within the framework of learning a healthy vocal technique and a mix of healthy vocal repertoire. We will work together to meet your goals and find your unique voice. My experience is in working with children, teenagers, young adults and adults of all ages and backgrounds. We have worked on a wide range of vocal genres, styles, languages, repertoire and topics. I cannot wait to meet you!

Marissa is an excellent teacher. She has been teaching my eleven-year-old who is just starting out with voice (and was feeling very nervous). Marissa did a great job of helping her feel at ease, and working with her. She says that Marissa is always kind and friendly and she's learning a lot.

My approach is best defined with one word: natural. Everything about you is unique, including your voice. Imitating denies this simple fact. So I'm all about stripping away all imitation, getting you in touch with your voice and then making that signature voice of yours strong and flexible. Your voice should be as unique as you are. I work with all levels and if you don't like my lessons - I will give you your money back.

About Gabriel

I have been helping singers of all levels for over 15 years. My passion for professional singing began with listening to pop and rock singers on the radio back in the early 90’s and continued evolving into the early 2000’s when I discovered musical theater. The sounds I hear on the radio and on

My experience with Linda was great! I’ve only had one lesson with her but she was patient and understanding even though I was super nervous. She pushed me to do more and I’ve become more confident. I look forward to continue working with her :)

"My daughter and I started taking lessons with Nancy during the pandemic as an activity that we could enjoy together. We are both adults (60’s and 30’s) who were completely new to singing. We have really enjoyed our virtual lessons and are amazed by our progress over the past 6 months. Nancy is incredibly kind and helped us to develop our confidence with singing. We never believed we would have ever participated in a virtual recital before working with Nancy. We recommend Nancy highly for her teaching skills, positive attitude and dedication to helping us develop our voices."
