Gay O.

Portland, OR

Vocal students need some type of keyboard instrument at home in order to obtain proper pitch for vocalizing and solo practice. I will teach you basic music reading skills and keyboard chord playing.

About Gay

I break into song before my feet touch the floor -- make a detour by the piano on the way to the shower. Starting my day with music almost guarantees that my day is more productive and is filled with joy.

My musical life started when I was 4 when my dad started teaching me piano. I played woodwind instruments from 5th grade through college. I started voice lessons when I was 16 (and wanted to get into the top high school choir). And then, at age 60, I asked myself what I most wanted to be excellent at, what would carry me through the rest of my life. I chose piano and found a top-notch
teacher who took me back to square one and changed my musical life. Then--a few years later, I found a top-notch voice teacher who taught me to breathe, taught me to speak . . . and changed my life once more.

I want to share these new discoveries with YOU. I want YOU to have a chance at a part in a school musical. I want YOU to be able to stand up in church and sing your heart out. I want YOU to be able to sit at a piano and make up accompaniments for group singing or confidently play a solo for your friends and family.

My college degree is in voice. My master's degree is in choral music and elementary school vocal classroom music. I've been part of a summer stock music program in Montana where I sang in the chorus, played piano in the pit orchestra and the following year acted as vocal music director for 5 full-length musicals.

*** Lesson Details ***
There's no stress in studying with me. We'll go at your speed. But I will tell you, the better you get, the pickier I get! Perfection is unattainable -- it's the journey that matters. I use many different series of piano books -- Young Pianist's Library, Celebration Series, FJH literature. I love duets. For singers, I like show music. I use beginning Italian songs and art songs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Has 3 acoustic pianos (2 grands & 1 upright); Conn theatre-type organ

*** Home Equipment ***
I want an acoustic piano available in a piano student's home. Prefers this due to teaching method. Best to send in studio. Vocal students need some type of keyboard instrument at home in order to obtain proper pitch for vocalizing and solo practice. I will teach you basic music reading skills and keyboard chord playing.

*** Specialties ***
I am a continuing student of the Dorothy Taubman piano technique. I teach classical piano, basic improvisation, vocal classical art songs, sacred music, musical theatre.

Julia V.

Portland, OR

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

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 also work 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, local music studios as well as maintaining my private teaching practice.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am persistent and positive! Having worked and performed 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. We will choose music that interests you and helps to build your voice moving from simple to more complex and challenging. 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 f/w keyboard with a visitor's parking lot w/ seating for parents. 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.

Julia is an excellent vocal coach ! She's helped me come out of my shell and discover my vocal talents. Every lesson with her has been meaningful and inspirational. At first I was very shy and hesitant about pursuing lessons, but I'm glad I did ! I look forward to everything else she has to teach me.

I am 60 years old, have some musical background, have never, ever sung, and have wanted to rectify that for several years. For me, Julia is perfect, and if I say that I am finding my lessons life-changing, it is not an exaggeration. Julia is experienced, skilled, warm, attentive, and observant. I look forward very much to my next lesson.

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 Marchandt 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 thing
s.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.

Kayla was professional, knowledgeable, clear, and encouraging. She asked excellent questions to find out my experience and goals, then moved right into effective instruction on warmup exercises around breathing and simple scales. She made me feel comfortable and willing to take risks, and I quickly felt stronger and more confident.

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.
