I have been teaching singing for 4 years and my students vary from amateurs to artists who prepare for auditions and take part in performances. Within the first few lessons, we will learn to increase the attentiveness of our hearing and gain firmness of tone (primarily by means of this very constantly attentive, governing hearing). As we advance, we will gradually gain knowledge of the instrument (your body) by means of easy exercises. The tools are very simple and very few. The center of the process is the effort of your attentiveness and your imagination.
I specialize in opera, but have helped singers from every walk of the art. Singer-songwriter students have been greatly supported by my composition background.
We typically start by those difficulties that most concern you about your singing. Students of all ages and experience levels are welcome.

In Broomfield, I receive students in my home, at my acoustic piano.
I have been dedicated for the last 7 years to the study of the Operatic Voice, developing my soprano voice. Before that I earned two master-equivalent diplomas in music composition, and music theory. For a long time, composing songs and pieces of music, as well as studying guitar as a child, piano and percussion later, it all has been a means to further my vital singing desire, on which I persevere every day.

Andrea knows what she is doing. I have had great success in getting my voice stronger, more resonant, and pleasant. My singing voice which has been extremely problematic is coming back. She gives me the correct exercises which makes all the difference.
I purchased lessons for my Girlfriend and she has had nothing but wonderful things to say about Andrea. She has a great reputation and deserves it.
An absolutely wonderful, intelligent, fun, and gifted teacher.
Knowledgable and friendly!
Andrea is an amazing teacher coach and person - after many years of searching for an exceptional professional yet easy, fun to be around teacher I have found the best!
She is very pleasant and patient. She has a very interesting way of explaining things in a way I think most people can relate to and is very enthusiastic which helps keep focus and excitement.
Andrea is amazing. She is extremely knowledgeable and can absolutely tailor the class to best meet your singing goals. She is also very approachable and has a great, positive energy. I would highly recommend her.
Loving my lessons.
Truly a gifted singer and teacher- I have had many music instructors in my life - as a child and as an adult - she is the best of all of them - easy, thoughtful, kind - and oh so talented in her approach and skill ---
Love the experience she has to offer and her patience since these are my first ever voice lessons. It is also a very enjoyable time for me.
So sweet and patient. Andrea possesses an immense amount of music knowledge. She is such a pleasure
First, Andrea had such a pleasant personality upon meeting her. I like that she is patient and adjusts her teaching style to meet my needs. She was open to teaching me the songs I wanted to learn. I was nervous going in since I have never had voice lessons but she has helped me to feel comfortable in growing my singing voice.Show More
Andrea is very patient and flexible! She is committed to helping you master all the difficult subtleties that improve the voice and I will definitely continue to work with her on vocal training.
As always Andrea challenges me and encourages me. I love learning from Andrea and will recommend her to any and all looking to learn and grow.
Andrea is a very patient teacher, who helps you achieve your goals.
Andrea is a very patient and easy to work with instructor!
Talented, pleasant, and funny. Everything I could ask for
I was very impressed with how well Andrea described and demonstrated what she wanted me to do. I have taken lessons with several other people and I made more progress in one lesson with her than I did for weeks with other teachers. I can't wait 'til my next lesson!Show More
I am so grateful to Andrea....
I have always loved to sing, and sang in several choirs when I was younger. But I had "lost" my voice, and wanted to see if I could recover it. Andrea was wonderful in working with me: I was barely able to release any sound when we started our lessons. Within weeks, Andrea helped me discover how to form the vowels and release the sound. [I have moved out of state, so Andrea only had a limited time to work with me.]
She is passionate about music, and yet very patient with her students. She did not patronize me with false praise when I wasn't getting it, but she still encouraged me. And when I did get it, she was quick to affirm my progress. I strongly recommend Andrea as a voice teacher.
Andrea, an excellent teacher!
Andrea is a wonderful teacher, being able to connect with my daughter Julia who is 11 months. She is very keep on learning and exploring through play, and is creating a sense of inquiry in Julia that is just beautiful to see! Simply an excellent teacher. I strongly recommend Andrea!
Gabriela, Julia's mom.
Andrea is a great voice teacher
I started taking opera lessons with Andrea this summer and I absolutely adore her teaching style. She not only has the education level and teaching experience to help you reach your potential, but she is very easy going and extremely comfortable to be around! With me, she zoned into my weaknesses and was able to make me aware of what I need to work on and from there I was able to make improvements. I would definitely recommend Andrea because she is an awesome voice teacher!!
Mrs. Andrea was great!! She is an amazing piano teacher and she helped me to stay in the right position and corrected me in a nice way. Mrs. Andrea helped me strive to be my best, and I feel she really cares.
