Erin W.

Portland, OR

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.

My voice students range in ability from absolute beginner to intermediate with significant previous musical and vocal training. 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 use a greater range.

I also teach beginning piano to all ages. I teach students as young as 5 as long as t
hey 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 based 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.

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.

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 all of their music.

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

Awesome Teacher!!

I have been learning from Erin for about 6 months, she has shown me how to do things with my voice I never thought I could ever do!! She is really patient, but holds me to a high standard as well. Lots of fun, and easy to be around too. Great experience!

An Exceptional Instructor!!!

Erin is a very knowledgeable instructor in both voice and piano. I have been taking lessons from her in my home for about 3 months now and I have made HUGE strides in my ability to sing on key (which was close to zero before I started lessons with her) and my ability to read music and play the piano which I gave up on when I was 8 years old.

Erin is professional, patient, understanding and very reliable and I would highly recommend her. Her valuable instruction has opened a whole new world for me!

I have had only 2 lessons with Jena but I find she is easy to talk to and she can adapt to whatever the needs of the students are during the lesson. she is very detailed oriented and this has helped me understand why we are doing what we are doing at any given moment . this is important because of the unique challenges i have asked Jena to help me with in the lessons which test a teacher's ability to adapt and develop new technique's during the lessons.

My unique challenge is I was born with the voice of a genetic male and thus to move my voice up in range is going to take extreme patience and a teacher that truly believes in helping me achieve my goals. my goals are specifically to learn to speak and sing in the range of a soprano.

what makes Jena a special teacher is that she is able to help me learn what I need to as we both laugh during the lesson. this unique combination of people skills coupled with her ability to help me learn to speak and sing is a rare gift.

thank you

Rachel

Charity M.

Beaverton, OR

Whether recreationally or professionally we'll expand repertoire to display versatility, work on aural skills (sight singing, intervals, dictation), theory and musicality.

About Charity

The body is an incredible instrument that we use to speak, to rock out, walk, boogie, express, signify and croon. The body can captivate audiences or communicate to a friend. A person can personally and professionally take flight, gaining confidence through becoming familiar with themselves, their bodies and their artistry.

Charity ran away with both opera and the circus.Their vocal skill continues to take them on the jazz, theater and classical stages like Portland Opera and Opera Theater Oregon.

Combining both disciplines of music and cirque is one of their favorite things.They are
a previous resident artist and troupe liaison of Sky Circus, a continuing guest member with Wanderlust Circus, Caravan of Glam and instructor at Echo Theater

Highly skilled and great with kids. Looking forward to more lessons. While I'm just there with my kids (not taking lessons myself), I have found her warmup techniques more effective for me than what I picked up from two years of competitive high school choirs where i had an excellent voice instructor.

Parvaneh G.

Lake Oswego, OR

Have fun while learning sound vocal technique! My lessons are for the budding professional as well as the person who just wants a creative outlet. You will get to choose the repertoire you work on, in addition to some songs that I will choose for you. I am a classically trained singer who is comfortable teaching students of all kinds. Healthy vocal technique will always come first, but my students will also learn ear training & theory. Let's develop your voice together!

About Parvaneh

Hello! My name is Parvaneh and I am a voice and piano teacher with over 20 years of classical music study. I grew up in the Portland area and studied piano for 10 years before focusing on vocal arts full-time. At 18, I moved to California to study vocal performance at UC Santa Barbara, earning my Bachelor of Music degree with honors. I excelled in ear training and music theory while at UCSB and performed in numerous operas and choirs, including as the alto section leader of the Santa Barbara Choral Society. After graduating college, I decided to pursue other interests professionally, but have
maintained my status as a professional vocalist with jobs as a paid section leader at several churches. Currently, I am the alto section leader at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Portland.

I believe in nurturing the individuality in each student and encouraging healthy vocal technique. My areas of expertise include: diction/translation, Alexander Technique, ear training and theory.

5 Surprising Things That Affect Your Singing Voice
You've practiced for months, and you're ready to share your music with an audience. But before you step on stage... did you know there are other factors that can affect your performance? Here, online voice teacher Tyler J. shares his tips for getting adequate sleep, what to eat before singing, and more...   Being a modern singer can place a lot of demands on the voice. For me, it’s often necessary to sing for two to four hours straight several nights in a row, or even rehearse for lon
15 Powerful Audition Songs for Altos
The most important part of vocal auditions is taking a piece and making it your own. When looking for talent, directors don’t want to hear another rendition of something they have heard many times before; you need to make sure you stand out! In musical theater, your song choice is usually dependent on the role for which you are auditioning. Many singers recommend avoiding songs from shows like Les Miserables and Wicked, as these are very common choices and tend to be overused; however, if you
6 Tips for Singing and Playing the Piano at the Same Time
Artists like Billy Joel and Elton John may make it look effortless, but singing and playing the piano at the same time takes time and practice to truly master! Understandably, it’s difficult because you’re multitasking by "playing" two instruments simultaneously – your voice and the piano. It’s easy to lose concentration on one, while the other goes a little off; if you focus on your voice, you might mess up the timing with your fingers, and should you pay too much attention to the piano key
Learning to Read Music: An Introduction for Singers
Learning to read music can be a daunting task for beginner singers! Here, Ann Arbor, MI voice teacher Elaina R. shows you how to get started...   Not to point out the obvious, but as singers, we don’t have keys on our instrument. We don’t have buttons that emit the same pitch every time they are pressed. Most of us don’t have perfect pitch, either. This makes learning to read music quite different for singers than for other musicians. Not only do singers deal with learning how
