Learn to develop a healthy technique for singing in the classical style with proper vowels, breathing, space, and placement. Learn songs and arias in English, French, German, and Italian.

About Erin
I have a Master's in Vocal Performance from Portland State University, and over a decade of vocal training and performance experience.

I teach voice lessons to kids, teenagers, and adults, ranging in ability from beginner to experienced. I have helped the beginning students learn to match pitch and read notes on the staff. My voice students learn to sing with purer vowels, increased breath support, and to access greater vocal range.

I teach beginning piano to all ages. I teach students as young as 5 as long as they are able to stay focused for the duration of a half hour lesson. Most of my piano students are in the 7 -10 range, but I teach some beginning adults as well.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice students will learn to improve their technique through proper breathing, correct vowels, space, and resonance. I teach repertoire ba
sed on the students' interest, but I am well versed in classical and operatic repertoire in English, French, German, and Italian, as well as some musical theatre and jazz. I also teach pop songs for those who are interested. I can help you improve your technique for whatever style of music you want to sing. For adults, I recommend an hour voice lesson. For kids, I recommend a half hour voice lesson, and half hour of piano if they are not already taking it.

Piano students will learn to read music, play with correct form, learn scales, and improve their musicianship skills. I teach out of lesson books (mostly Faber) to improve technique, but I want students to learn supplemental pieces that are fun for them as well. For piano beginners, I recommend 30 minutes. Once the student is a little more experienced, I like to have them for 45 minutes.

I hope to share with you the same joy I get from making music!

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio at home has a piano, my music library, a large mirror for aiding the student in observing their vocal habits.

*** Travel Equipment ***
For in home lessons, students will need to have a keyboard or a piano in a space free of distractions. Students should have a neat, three ring binder to hold any loose sheet music. Piano students need a regular notebook to write lesson assignments.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching classical art songs and musical theatre.

Opera is an amazing art form; the human voice can be so focused that it can carry over an entire orchestra with no amplification. Whether you aspire to this art form or not, it is great to learn how to support and project your voice and to keep it healthy for a lifetime of singing enjoyment.
I recommend adults take from 45 minutes to 1 hour lessons weekly for skill building. The price of lessons DECREASES by 10% after each 5 lesson purchased for the first 15 lessons. Studio policy is located at VaaraMusic.com.

About Julia
I have a Master’s in Opera Performance from the Boston and New England Conservatories as well as graduating from Vocal Performance programs at Boston University and Western Washington University. I have sung professionally with Boston Lyric Opera, Children’s Theater Companies, churches and synagogue and have toured on the east coast as well as Athens, Greece. Premiering new music is a specialty. I can help you prepare your pieces for auditions.  My students have successful auditions for college opera and music theater programs, and as choir soloists.

Students gain a larger vocal range and an easy, natural way of singing whether it is in a rock band, choir or as a soloist. Together we find the joy of singing while building a solid technique.

I have worked with small children as a Musikgarten teacher and have toured artist residency
programs which introduce children to music and theater in schools.   I was adjunct faculty at the College of St. Benedict/St. John’s University and local music studios as well as maintaining my private teaching practice.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am persistent and positive! Working and performing with singers and master teachers has helped me to be a resourceful teacher who understands the process of becoming a singer. I believe that a sense of fun and play helps you to accomplish your goals quickly.  For beginners you will learn how the voice works and how to care for and develop your instrument, I recommend adults take 45" - 1 hour lessons weekly for skill building. The price of lessons DECREASES by 10% after each 5 lesson purchased for the first 15 lessons. Studio policy is located at VaaraMusic.com. We will choose music that interests you and helps to build your voice starting with basics before moving to more complex and challenging music. Understanding music theory and sight-reading will help you get the most out of your singing. After 3 - 6 months you should have a good command of breathing and an understanding of how to sing with an expressive tone.For the advanced student, I can help you work on trouble spots and give you tools to help with the changes that voices naturally go through.  I look forward to giving you my full focus and celebrating your growth and accomplishments!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Condo w/ open area with piano. Visitor's parking lot w/ seating in studio for parents to listen. Parents with younger siblings can use play areas outside.
Basic library of vocal music, giving the student a way to sample different kinds of songs before purchasing books or downloading songs on their own. Music stand, iPhone plug-in/Amp for accompaniments and examples you want me to hear.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a basic library of vocal music at my home studio and will bring targeted books with me. Students should print out their favorite popular songs from such services as Music Notes website.
I expect my students to provide a keyboard, music stand and notebook as well as a low distraction environment.

*** Specialties ***
As an opera and musical theater, Oratorio and church singer, I help singers of all levels improve within their genre from popular music to opera. A good singing technique will help performers in any style stay healthy and enjoy an expressive singing instrument.

About Jonathan

*breathing for singers
*vocal range
*pitch
*jaw, neck, shoulder and/or tongue tension
*dynamic range
*confidence

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.

My main focus of training is classical vocal techniques. I am a trained opera singer. I will teach you all of the basics and/or build on what you have already learned. We will work on classical art songs and appropriate aria repertoire. I will teach exercises that will help with your flexibility and vocal range. These areas will improve with improved air support. I have studied under many amazing teachers most recently, Jane Randolph. Have considers herself a breath technician and we will take the techniques I have learned from her and my other mentors to help you with your vocal endeavors.

About Chelsea
I am a recent graduate of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. I focus on a classical technique but will teach any genre you like. I focus on vocal health and longevity. This includes proper posture, breath, and intonation. I will also help with performance techniques. I teach all ages but I require that those under the age of 13 only have a 30 min lesson. This is best for their focus and development. I think learning music should be fun and that everyone should have a chance to learn an instrument or learn to sing. Just because someone has told you that you can not sing in the past does not mean that we can not improve your skills! Everyone can sing! You just have to nurture the skill properly!

Classical/Opera/Rock/Metal.
10 years teaching experience, 25 years performance experience in both theatrical stage productions and playing in live bands.
New students learn fundamentals of singing based on the teachings of the great Italian pedagogues. All lesson plans are custom designed to fit the individual student's needs. Apart from Introduction to Voice, an invaluable course for all new singers (including breath control and support, vocal anatomy, diction and ear training with a focus on vocal health and longevity) I offer a Beginner - Intermediate Classical Vocal Technique class and an Advanced Rock, Metal and Scream Techniques class. If you're looking to start singing, are interested in improving the quality and tone of your voice or want to learn how to scream like a banshee or growl like an ogre and still have a voice the next day, let's get in touch and get you started on your way!

About Quinton
I was born into a musical family. Both of my parents are successful, international opera soloists; Jake Gardner and Cynthia Clarey, please feel free to google them. I grew up in the performance lifestyle and by age 10 had already seen countless productions of a myriad of classical and opera pieces. My parents are also responsible for the majority of my voice training, which I began to focus on when I started singing in heavy rock bands which required the ability for me to scream and growl for long periods of time without damaging my voice. It is because of this that I have so much faith in my teaching process: I am living proof that you can create all kinds of abrasive sounds with your voice and still be able to sing, even in tandem with this less conventional styles of vocal performance. In the interim I have ended up performing o
peratic roles both in concert and full-on productions. I have performed in various groups in Germany, the UK and on the East Coast, but most notably with Portland heavy metal act "Only Zuul" with whom i wrote and performed for 9 years, performing with groups such as Origin, Cattle Decapitation and Deicide to name a few. In addition to these experiences I have created a vast network within the Portland underground music scene including performers, booking agents, venue managers, photographers, videographers, visual artists and of course fans. My studio also shares space with Bridge City Sessions, a Portland based Audio/Video recording studio and is surrounded by other art, music and music related studios spaces, making for a rich and welcoming artist community.
