About Jennifer
My name is Jennifer. I got my degree in vocal performance and minored in Jazz. I began voice lessons myself when I was eight. I am a mezzo soprano, and can teach both female and male voices. I have performed in several opera productions including but not limited to The Marriage of Figaro, Dido and Aeneus, Tenderland, and Hand of Bridge. I have worked and performed in masterworks by Brahms, Chopin, Mozart to name a few. I studied in French, English, Spanish, Italian, and German. I studied diction, ear training, piano, music history, pedagogy, and music theory. I have also performed with artists such as New York Voices, Bobby Mcferrin and Kurt Elling. I was blessed with many learning opportunities to grow in my passion and I would love to pass that knowledge and passion to anyone who wants to learn.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are de
signed around the needs of each student. The first lessons is always spent testing range, knowledge and abilities already known by the student. Then the student weighs in on what kind of music they would like to learn and what they hope to gain from the lessons. Theory and ear training are incorporated into the lessons. We work on breathing, technique and style. Generally we start with English or Italian. We work on vocal performance from a classical standpoint but Jazz and Broadway can also be taught if desired by the student. Scales and exercises are given each week to be worked on until the next lesson. A recording device is encouraged if the student cannot play the piano. Also, a voice note book to take notes during the lesson to be used during practice during the week.

*** Specialties ***
classical voice and jazz voice.

She's super patient with me, and slows down to my pace while still pushing me weekly. It's really nice that she's knowledgeable on music theory too, beyond just good at piano.

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.

Do you love opera but not sure how to begin study? Let's get started with the very basics of classical and operatic technique so meet student requirements for conservatory or to study privately with a formal opera teacher. That's right! A very good opera teacher requires that, prior to study, each student has a certain knowledge of music and experience singing. I want get you to that place where you can confidently begin serious opera voice work.

About Jillian
I have a Master's degree in Music Therapy, am a nationally board certified music therapist (MT-BC); performer and vocal instructor (Bachelor's in Classical Voice); certified yoga instructor and meditation guide (200+); certified and attuned Reiki master; professional freelance writer and editor.

...I find joy in a lot of places! And often I find these areas of study inform and augment each other.

Music therapy has afforded me a great deal of experience working with children, teens, and adults with special needs including, autism, Down's syndrome, cerebral palsy, emotional disturbances and developmental delays as well as teens and adults with psychosocial issues, including but not limited to anxiety, depression, grief, ADHD, personality disorders, and more.

I incorporate my experience as a therapist into the educative setting.

As a voice teacher, I want to help my students settle comfortably into their own musicality by showing them the building blocks of a solid technique, drawing particularly from the things that helped me grow as a vocalist. I want my students to feel strong in their body, comfortable and relaxed in their breath, and confident in their performance.

I am a professional vocalist in NYC. I perform liturgical and classical music, as well as musical theater repertoire. I participate in professional operas, choral groups and other concert series. Performing gives me a sense of bliss and completeness that is indescribable.

As a certified yoga instructor, I teach in many locations throughout Westchester. I was trained at Yoga Haven in Scarsdale, New York with Betsy Kase, and earned a 200-hour certificate in Asana, Pranayama, and Meditation. I offer private yoga instruction and meditation at my home studio. My studio comes fully equipped with all yoga props, aromatherapy, and music. Hands-on-assists and personalized classes offered to deepen your experience.

It is a joy to offer Reiki to curious, open clients in need of energy healing. Reiki is a noninvasive energy healing technique totally separate of any religious affiliation and available to anyone. It is a difficult to describe the relaxing, soothing, and deep-healing effects of Reiki to someone who has never experienced.

Please feel free to inquire about any of my services!

*Note: If you don't see a time slot that is suitable to your needs but would like to try a session or lesson with me, feel free to register for the Flex Plan, and we will work out week-to-week times!!**

**Note: If you are interested in music therapy, please email me with a bit about yourself and your personal goals.

Voice lessons for a student interested in studying Classical Voice by way of Opera Arias and Art Songs

About Angela
I am a professional opera singer and voice instructor in New York City. I have an opera, musical theater, church and choral background. I am comfortable teaching all styles of music.

Our singing voice is the instrument that we were each born to play. My goal is to make singing effortless and enjoyable and to help my students build confidence in themselves by developing their instrument.

Together we will work on breathing, speaking and vocal exercises as well as appropriate repertoire singing with beautiful Italian vowels, free of tension and with emphasis on emotional purpose.

It would be my pleasure to work with my students on basic music theory. I can also help students prepare their voices for public speaking engagements.

I am a classically trained vocalist that also grew up singing country music as a child. I have a plethora of experience as a music teacher and performer, and hold a BA in Music Performance from the University of Portland and am currently making all my money in the arts. I believe that voice lessons are a beautiful experience that helps us come out of our shell and have less fear in our lives, whether onstage or not. I also believe that anyone can use their voice to its fullest potential with some training. With me you will get honesty, kindness, enthusiasm, and knowledge. I hope I get to meet you!

About Taylor
Hello!

My name is Taylor Kendig, I am a passionate music teacher who specializes in teaching intro level music theory classes and private voice lessons. I recently received my Bachelor of Arts in music performance from the University of Portland, where I met my own amazing voice instructor Dr. Nicole Hanig, who I still train with to this day. I have over two years of teaching experience, as a private voice and beginning piano instructor with various organizations. This last summer I served on the faculty at Oregon Music Academy for three months, where I taught private voice lessons and group classes for pre-schoolers. I currently am the music director for St. Cyril parish in Wilsonville, and I am a substitute teacher with various organizations in Oregon and Washington, including Vancouver Music Academy. I am a local professional pe
rformer, who has appeared onstage with local companies in Oregon and has performed all over the world as a young artist, including with opera festivals in Italy, Florida, and Canada. I am an opera and musical theater artist that also has a background and strong love for contemporary music- particularly rock and country/bluegrass. I love working with voices and encouraging my students to rejoice in their own authenticity as a performer. I strongly believe that music lessons should be an opportunity to also grow as a person, and increase a persons level of confidence in themselves. I work hard to maintain a positive and safe creative environment while teaching. I am also trained in the call to protect program, which allows me to have the knowledge to maintain an especially safe environment for children. I have a lot of experience working with kids as well, from serving in various leadership positions with local churches and children's arts programs, to having two wonderful little sisters at home. I would be so excited to meet you and to be allowed into your individual artistic journey. Let me know when you would like to get started!!

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.
