Singing is Alive in Phoenix

By Dana B. - Phoenix Voice Teacher

I have been teaching singing lessons in Phoenix for TakeLessons since February 2010. In that time, I have been fortunate to work with a variety of students who have come to take singing lessons with several goals and aspirations in mind. My youngest student is seven years old and my oldest student is in her early thirties. I have had the opportunity to serve as a vocal coach for a young lady in the Miss Arizona and Miss America Pageant. TakeLessons is a flexible company to work with because they give students the opportunity to travel to the teacher’s studio or have the teacher travel to your home for lessons.

The city of Phoenix offers a lively music scene, ranging from traveling artists and groups performing concerts in downtown Phoenix to Broadway shows at Gammage Hall in Tempe, to local community performances. The Music School at Arizona State University is a wonderful resource for anyone in the Phoenix area. The Music School produces numerous concerts on a yearly basis and several which are free to the public. Phoenix is also the home of several accomplished musicians including Stevie Nicks, Alice Cooper, the Gin Blossoms and American Idol winner Jordin Sparks.

Each student comes to their singing lessons in Phoenix with their own goals. For some students, the goal is simply to learn how to sing and gain knowledge in vocal pedagogy, while other students are preparing for community theater auditions, school talent shows and university auditions. Most students have certain goals and deadlines that they would like to accomplish while taking singing lessons in Phoenix. As a vocal music teacher, it is rewarding to watch students grow from lesson to lesson and over the course of the year. The most memorable teaching and learning moments can happen at any time. It’s something simple, like when a student sings the correct vowel for the first time or when a student performs a difficult song. I love teaching singing lessons in Phoenix and would encourage you to explore the great music scene and resources this city has to offer.

About Charles

If you have ever wanted to really learn how to sing correctly, I can help you. I have personally taken voice lessons twice a week for well over 15 plus years from a master voice/opera singer who was trained by Master Vocal instructors in the Greater New York City area and also in Europe. These Master Vocal Instructors had deep ties with the New York Metropolitan Opera. In addition my Master Voice teacher was associated with the New York Metropolitan Opera, as well. I enjoy working with each of my many students to exceed their initial vocal goals. Many of my students are professional singe
rs, church choir members, actors, musicians, and I even train a Hollywood producer's Arizona clients!

I have taken graduate level courses at Arizona State University in Speech and Hearing Sciences. I've worked in the Radiology Department of a major hospital for over 10 years, seven years as supervisor. I have gained a very in-depth knowledge of the anatomical/physiological aspects of the human voice and body. My in-depth knowledge can help free your tired, sore, and/or hoarse "instrument".

I love to work with anyone truly interested in expanding their vocal horizons. I enjoy making people laugh and help them develop their vocal aspirations into reality. My credo is singing must come from within the heart and soul of every artist. If we are too serious about so much of the technical stuff, our art will suffer and singing becomes more of a job then a passion. It must remain a passion within us to truly touch us and others.

My vocal training background is Bel Canto, the Italian School of Singing. In addition to Bel Canto, I was also cross trained in the German School of singing by the SAME instructor. This is very unusual since most singers which train Bel Canto do not generally cross over to German, due to language/vocal placement issues. The Great Pavarotti never sung German due to this very issue. The two schools of singing blend perfectly together when those schools are properly introduced and integrated during the voice lessons. The results are solid, progressive vocal growth and unbelievable beauty of tone which can be astonishing. This is what truly separates a singer with an unbelievable instrument from that of a "vocal orator".

Please be assured that I DO NOT ever force any of my students to sing opera. So if you are interested in just learning how to sing to the best of your ability, I can certainly help you.

A good majority of my voice students are professional performers and some are people just interested in developing their voice for their own personal fulfillment. I currently have a student who is a family physician and another is a musical composer of a well known pop song. One of my students recently sang on stage with the great Andrea' Bocelli and now he is scheduled to sing at Carnagie Hall in New York. I work hard in shedding the light of vocal knowledge to all my students. My in-depth knowledge base is there for anyone who wishes to train with me. I NEVER frown upon training individuals who have not had any prior vocal training. I am delighted to work with everyone who sincerely wishes to learn the great art of singing.

*** Lesson Details ***
I spend a good 35 minutes on vocal exercises to help strengthen and expanded the vocal range. I then move on to vocal musicianship and songs. Some of the songs I select for specific technical instruction. The student is always welcome to select his/her own music as well. I use specific songs as benchmarks to track vocal growth. I make sure my students are always cognizant of proper diaphragmatic/abdominal breath support coupled with a freed throat. I am a product of the WELL GUARDED secrets of the "Bel Canto" school of singing. It is through the Bel Canto school of singing that some of the world's greatest voices developed over the centuries. Often times my students find themselves surpassing their initial expectations! High notes are never an issue because the voice is freed to produce them. Vocal projection is almost never an issue because breath and voice are fused into one. The ability to sing softly is the result of a well freed up throat. When the throat is freed everything begins to develop beautifully. Each lesson brings forth incremental vocal growth.

I carefully work one on one with each of my students making sure that their throat and oral positioning are correct. The throat should never feel tired or tight during or after a voice lesson. My students repeatedly tell me that that notice steady vocal growth during and after each voice lesson. This makes it very exciting for both the student and me. This feeds the fire of passion to learn and grow!

*** Studio Equipment ***
A 100 year old grand piano, a full sized electronic keyboard to transpose music on the fly, and suspended computer monitors over the grand piano to aid in musical development. Karaoke support is also available using a 50 inch monitor. In addition, a 60 year player piano is available, should the student wish to use it.

*** Specialties ***
Bel Canto Italian School of Singing
German School of Singing
In addition, I read and speak Italian

Charles is a top class professional instructor with the qualified training, experience and tools to make any singer into a head-turning extraordinary singer. As well as being extremely patient, he understands the human voice to the extent to make it progressively evolve and advance at a surprisingly fast pace, while at the same time respecting it's limits.
My voice grows during each lesson and just into my 3rd lesson, there has been no plateau point at all. Great teacher!

Carolyn R.

Phoenix, AZ

Classical, Folk, Pop, Jazz; Musical Theater

About Carolyn

I am an experienced voice and piano teacher with 20 + years of teaching experience.

I am passionate about teaching, and my experience includes teaching voice and piano to elementary through college students, in academic settings and in my home. I love working with people of all ages.

As a soprano, I have sung professionally with many choral ensembles, and have performed as soloist in recitals and concerts throughout the US. I have appeared in musical theater and opera productions in leading roles. I have also been a church and college choir director, and vocal coach for musical th
eater.

In addition, I have performed as piano soloist in various settings, and piano accompanist for choirs, singers and instrumentalists in church, contest and concerts.

Currently, I am pursuing a Doctorate in Choral Music at Arizona State University.

Having recently relocated from Minnesota, I would love to establish a studio here where I can share my expertise and passion for music with students. My approach is that music should be fun and satisfying. I want students to have the enjoyment of accomplishing great things, and build on their natural abilities and love of music. I look forward to meeting you, and seeing where your musical talents can take you!

*** Lesson Details ***
Each voice lesson begins with warming up: movement:, stretches, breathing, and relaxation while focusing on good posture. Following that we continue warming up the voice with appropriate vocal exercises. If desired, we can spend time sight singing (reading music). Then we will turn to your chosen piece(s) of music. You could bring in a song or aria of your interest, or I could suggest pieces that I feel suit your voice. Some areas that I like to focus on in are relaxation, posture, breathing, support, use of registers, placement, growing your voice in size and range, intonation (pitch), tone color, clarity and consistency. My ultimate goal is to help students sing with musicality and expressiveness.

For piano, we may begin by working on things like hand position, posture, relaxation of the body and then exercises, including scales and chords. We may also incorporate music theory.
After a warm-up, we will focus on chosen music. I like to use music literature that is appropriate to the student's level, which gives enjoyment, and also increases breadth of knowledge and expertise. For beginning students, there are many good series available that I like to use, such as Bastian or Alfred.

Its very important that students feel comfortable in their lessons. I am sensitive, flexible and open to individual likes and dislikes, and any thoughts or concerns you have. These are your lessons and I am committed to helping you get the most out of them!

*** Studio Equipment ***
lessons in large living room with upright piano, mirrors; space for parents to sit/wait; repertoire

Mollie K.

Phoenix, AZ

About Mollie

I have been a musician all my life -- started learning the piano at age 3. I am classically trained, was going to be a concert pianist, but then when I became 18, I realized that I wanted to explore other genres of music. I have played big band jazz, was in a professional original rock band and played on the stage with many famous rock musicians, have played with many different bands in almost every style of music (including hip hop), and am an accomplished studio musician as well. I love music, period. I also am a percussionist and vocal coach. I also can teach church musicians to play
"outside the hymnal." (I have played in almost every kind of church, including gospel)

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very laid back, I use a variety of curriculums and methods, depending on what is needed by the student. My goal is to help you learn what YOU want to learn. If you are are parent reading this, my goal is to help your student learn what they want to learn as well...I will discuss it with you, but the bottom line is that your student is the one who will be learning. I know through experience that music students only really learn what they want to learn.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Grand piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect them to have an acoustic piano or an electric piano

*** Specialties ***
My specialty is finding out what works for the student, and making sure they learn what it is they wanted to learn. I use a variety of methods and curriculums depending upon the student. I am very good at helping church pianists learn how to play "outside the hymnal" -- helping people learn how to play from chord charts or how to read music and learn all the scales and chords, etc. I can help teach people that play by ear how to play from written music. Another specialty is helping people to develop relative pitch, and ear training in general.

Making Music Fun For Everyone!

Mollie is a great instructor with a great knowledge base. She genuinely wants everyone to enjoy music as much as she does. She cares enough to mold the lessons around her students, i.e. if one wants to learn a particular song first, then that is what happens. She makes it fun too. She is kind, patient, and very humble. She knows music, to the core and back again. It has been a real honor to have been able to study with Mollie. If you need someone who can play the entire music genre, classic piano to the latest hits on the radio, Jazz Standards to Improvisational Masterpieces, Mollie is tops.

Cassandra C.

Phoenix, AZ

Singing basics: breath, phonation, range, repertoire

About Cassandra

Welcome to Studio C! I graduated with honors from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, earning a Master of Music in Voice Performance. I also hold a Bachelor of Music from Arizona State University. An emerging opera singer myself, I sing with Arizona Opera in Phoenix and Tucson.

I am available for private voice lessons serving the Phoenix metro area in historic Central Phoenix. Students learn to let go of inhibitions, release tensions, find a natural voice, and let that voice grow. Studying both classical and music theater repertoire and techniques, students develop effective breathing
, a supported tone, and an agile voice suitable for any genre of singing. Motivated students who have a musical background are most successful in my studio.

I'm pretty down to earth and strive to create a fun and encouraging learning environment. Lessons include breathing exercises, a variety of vocalizes aimed to strengthen the voice, kinesthetic exercises, repertoire in multiple languages, musical expression, and sight singing.

Also a violinist, lover of music theater, jazz, opera, all things DIY and outdoors, I offer a well rounded approach to music lessons. Dedicated students always love to meet my pet chinchilla after lessons too!

*** Lesson Details ***
Weekly 40 minute lessons are preferred, but can be customized to fit the student's needs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Students should have access to a keyboard or piano at home to practice.

*** Specialties ***
Beginners through advanced; opera, music theater, jazz, and popular music.
