Private Singing Teacher

My vocal experience spans over a decade, between musical theater, classical voice, rock bands, and many other styles. I'm passionate about sharing my experience and skills with a new generation of musicians. As a private teacher, I am committed to working together with students of all ages and skill levels to help them achieve their goals, whether they want to be hobby musicians or go pro.

I believe music is intrinsic to our humanity, and my teaching philosophy is based on the satisfaction that comes from taking pride in one's hard work and dedication to their craft, and ultimately the joy that music fills our lives with. Each of us have our own unique voice to contribute-- I'm here to help you be the best you!

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.

I use various curriculum depending on the student's need. For voice, the curriculum is individually tailored to the students level and ...

Vocal coach for over 10 years with over 20 years of musical experiences. I teach the unique methodic which makes your voice healthy, strong, and flexible. You will find how to control breath and vocal pitch. I have a technique for beginners and expert singers. Let me show your real voice. I moved from Russia in 2019 and as I don't speak English as fluently as I would like and would like to practice with English speaking students, so for this reason, I will charge HALF of my full online teaching rate.

Maya was very patient with me and she guided me through the voice exercises and didn't pressure me to get to the next level...she said it will come in time, and she focussed me on the task. She allowed me to choose some of the songs I felt comfortable singing and we worked on those songs, and her relaxed and playful attitude made me enjoy the lessons without any pressure, and I stayed with her and my weekly lessons- I highly recommend Maya, as she can bring out the best in a person and get you singing in no time at all. She is worth every cent and if you need to learn breathing techniques- Maya is the person to help you improve. I wouldn't call anyone else for voice training...only Maya.

Maiia is a gifted teacher. She is a unique outstanding singer and at the same time is able to share her know- hows and expertize in an efficient way. I enjoyed our lessons a lot

Sofia was wonderful teacher. she was very punctual and my child liked her bright and fun personality. She taught piano very well considering young child’s age and providing relaxed and flexible method rather than traditional way with tension. We liked her but her schedule didn’t work with us so we had to let her go unfortunately.
P.S. Sofia, thank you for teaching my child her first piano lessons and we wish you the very best luck for your future~!
Yuchen/Annie
An accountable and professional teacher. First, the course set is rational. Sophia usually chooses appropriate pieces which match with the actual level of me. For example, the difficulty level is step by step, which makes me confident and very willing to have classes each time. In addition, she is also good at perceiving my lost points, and is patient to give me efficient direction on how to do better! Really hope more students can reach her out, and explore your own potential on music!

Blake is a really great teacher. I've been taking weekly vocal/guitar lessons with him for about 4 months and have seen really impressive improvement. On guitar I've gone from playing basic acoustic chords to transcribing and playing electric solos. He's also been teaching me theory at a nice digestible rate which has helped a lot too. I would definitely recommend Blake for anyone who's serious about vocals or guitar. If you put in the time to practice he can definitely make you better!

"Best instructor ever, indeed!
My daughter takes lesson from Holly. My daughter who cried when I would sing to her as an infant, who begged me to stop singing when she was in elementary. My daughter who would not participate in annual caroling, who early on in her academic instructions learned to mouth "watermelon" to give the impression she sings along. Now in high school, she takes lessons from Holly. My daughter enthusiastically belts out the words to songs! Holly is helping her to find her voice- musically, and in life. My daughter will now let me sing!

THANKS HOLLY!"

Learning to Sing in Portland

By Julia V. - Portland Singing Teacher

Portland is a unique city with its own distinctive character. The city is full of people who love the performing arts, and there is something for everyone to enjoy! If you’re considering taking singing lessons in Portland, you’re in luck! We can offer opportunities in every genre from new age to rock, and a whole song-loving community to support it all!

Students taking singing lessons in Portland are hoping to support their chosen activities whether in church choir, high school groups and musicals, or auditioning for the yearly PATA auditions. PATA stands for Portland Area Theatre Alliance which holds yearly auditions where area performers can be seen by up to 60 area companies. Performers have a choice of doing 2 songs, 2 monologues or 1 of each. Students and teachers can join PATA and it is a great resource for auditions and offering workshops. http://www.portlandtheatre.com/general-auditions.html

My students will often ask me which local choirs they should sing in. Your teacher can help to steer you in the right direction, but I always say it depends on each student’s sight reading and vocal skills. The PDX choral calendar lists 22 auditioned choirs as well as many more non-auditioned youth and professional choirs. https://sites.google.com/site/pdxchoralcalendar/list-of-choirs

Students may want to take singing lessons in Portland to gain entry to a local community college or University music program. PSU has a high-quality music program and are frequently putting on opera productions and providing many performance outlets. Check out their online calendar and student recital schedule. http://music.pdx.edu/calendar/

Mt. Hood Community College and others smaller campuses also have good programs for inspiring students to get out into the world of music and begin performing or teaching.

You know you have a good vocal technique if you can perform in several different styles. The important thing is to find a teacher or group where you feel comfortable and joyful! Joy is an underrated aspect of singing technique that makes everything easier.

While you’re taking singing lessons in Portland, you can enjoy lots of live music in every genre! Kells Irish Pub features traditional Irish music - Every Sunday at 7PM. Everyone is welcome! http://www.kellsportland.com/music/

The many different jazz groups can be found at the Jazz Society of Oregon. http://www.jsojazzscene.org/monthlyclubinfo.htm. To hear some of great jazz music live, check out Tony Starlight! There’s always a fun show and beautiful singers with live music. http://www.tonystarlight.com/events/upcoming-shows/

Finally, give Portland Opera a try. Every year they have young artists trying out for new roles. Portland Opera productions take place at Keller Auditorium and the Newmark Theatre with beautiful sets and costumes. Opera scenes are even performed outside during the summer in downtown Portland. http://www.portlandopera.org/

When you’re out around town and find a style or song you enjoy, jot down the title or keep the performance’s program. Portland Music Company is a local, independent music store where you can pick up the sheet music for some of your favorite pieces. http://www.portlandmusiccompany.com/

Bring your newly acquired music to your voice teacher and say “I’d like to be able to sing this!” You and your teacher will enjoy having a goal and building the skills to get you there.

The Importance of Hydration for Singers

There are many important reasons to stay hydrated for general health, but for musicians - particularly vocalists - hydration is a key to success.
