Learn to develop a healthy technique for singing with proper vowels, breathing, space, and placement. Gain confidence in your voice and sing the songs you love!

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.

Together we build your singing instrument using breath, vowels and tone so that, whatever style you choose to sing in, you are able to do it with ease.
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.

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.

All that I request from a student is a desire to learn. I will work with you at your pace to achieve the musical goals you have. Each student begins at a different level.

The first lesson will focus on your musical background. If you are a beginner, that's no problem. I specialize in working with beginning students to teach them all the joy and satisfaction there is in mastering an instrument.

I love to laugh and the lessons are very laid back and fun, but I desire that a student move forward and learn new techniques.

You will be playing simple songs after your first lesson. I'm asked many times by students "how long will it take until I'm good." My answer is: that is in direct proportion to the amount of time you dedicate to practicing. After a month or two, you will know how to read music and have a basic understanding of music theory.

Kayla is very informative and descriptive about how the body works in producing sound. She not only showed technique but also gave some easy tips on how to improve. Best of all, I finally understand how a raspy sound can occur without damaging the voice! This is a thing I've found difficulty in finding online, in a way that does not damage your vocal cords. All in all, a fun teacher and I recommend her, especially if you like rock/metal as she seems to have a great knowledge of this form of vocals.

Joni is a wonderful teacher to work with. Her passion for music and her drive and dedication to helping you achieve your goals show up so clearly in every lesson with her.

It also seems clear to me that she comes at this not from any strict tradition or method but as someone who has learned very well the science behind how the voice and singing work. How the body works as a whole. She then uses that knowledge and her skills to pull forward whatever will work best for any particular goal you have. She will not only show you what to do but she will be sure you understand why you are doing it.

I for one feel lucky to have found her here on Takelessons. I am confident you would feel the same.

I have been teaching/coaching for 4 years in the styles of pop, R&B, contemporary musical theatre, broadway, background vocalists, gospel, worship leading and performance coaching for singers. My exeperience has been with beginner and intermediate singers from children to adults. I have worked professionally both as an actress and singer in musicals, concerts, theatre, film and television. I'm excited to unlock the greatest potential within every student! All ages are welcome

About Shay
I'm a singer/actress originally from Motown Detroit. I graduated from The Conservatory of Theatre at SUNY Purchase with a BFA in Acting. In NYC I worked as an actor in theatre, regional musicals and television. I am a proud AEA member and former AFTRA member. I was also a worship leader at World Changers Church NY.

During that time I gave private vocal lessons to worship leaders, background vocalists, musical theatre artists, actors and contemporary pop/R&B singers.

For 4 years I worked in NYC as an enrichment teacher where I taught musical theatre to elementary school aged children.

I currently reside in Los Angeles.

As a vocal coach I am best able to hlep students find their natural voice and show them how to maneuver through it with ease. I teach fundamentals such as breath support, intonation, ear training, vocal dynamics, vocal
flexibility and basic music theory. My theory is that while the above are crucial fundamentals, they are yet functions that support an inherent intuition that every singer already has.

As a perfomrance coach I push students to acheive an honest and dynamic performance emotionally, physically and vocally. I create a very safe environment where students are encouraged to fail and continue to stretch their own pre conceived limits.

I'm excited to continue teaching and grow a base of students in Los Angeles or online.

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.
