I specializing in teaching proper techniques, creating a safe space for unique and creative expression in a way customized to you. I used different schools of pedagogy so that your individual needs are met with directly.

i hold a doctoral degree in music and am also a certified sound healer. (not a lot of us) I love teaching classical music of all eras and languages. The main ones of course: Fr. Gr. It and I love delving and exploring Slavic or other not so performed languages.

I just love watching as you emerge and find your true voice and self.

About Aria T.

(With regards to the ages taught, it is more a matter of experience so much as chronological age.)

I'm glad you've decided to take voice lessons. It's a decision impossible to regret. You find your Self and learn to sing fully at the same time! And a whole lot more.

When I'm not voice teaching, I'm a certified sound healer. Healing people physically, emotionally, spiritually and energetically all with various sounds and instruments. It sounds perhaps sort of out there, but it's really not.

But we start lessons just where you are and talk about where you want to go and the best way we can get there. :)

I love working with Aria! She is an excellent teacher. She worked with me on classical repertoire in Italian, German, French and English. Sbe helped me prepare for performances, scholarship competitions, program auditions, and my college auditions. She is knowledgable, patient, understanding and always willing to find time to help. She's great!

Dr Thome is an excellent teacher. She not only loves music, but understands it. She is quite talented at sharing that knowledge with her students, helping them to grow musically. She is great with scheduling--accommodating extra lessons as necessary and able. Her work with my daughter is stellar. Aria helped her prepare for multiple auditions, performances and her conservatory auditions. I highly recommend her.

Aria is a joy, a light, and an overall wonderful human being. She is knowledgeable and makes singing a wonderful experience. She helped me prepare for my St. Louis Muny audition and I could tell that my technique and overall confidence improved. I was very pleased with my audition (that’s big for someone who is very self-critical). I also had the pleasure of learning various choral arrangements and catholic hymns and performed them with Aria as my accompanist for weddings. It was a wonderful experience.

As a 70 year old singer, I wanted a teacher to help me keep singing! Aria has been such a gift and inspiration to me. her knowledge of music and of the voice is phenomenal. Her teaching skills are wonderful. I have never had a better teacher. Due to her encouragement and instruction, I am still happily cantering and soloing at church.

I have been working with Aria for a few weeks now and she has been helping me with a number of problems in sight reading, breath and diction, as well as coaching me on auditions and other practical matters to actually get to the professional level. She has outstanding enthusiasm along with her talent and our lessons have been a joy to me

I've never had a voice teacher before! Aria is definitely 11 stars though! She has put me into a category I never knew I could sing: Opera Soprano?!? I'm having a blast exploring music in a new way, and it's really helping me "find my voice", which was ultimately my goal. She said that exploring and refining this aspect of my voice will help in all of my vocal endeavors. I'm also enjoying learning to read music!

If you are looking for a vocal instructor, I highly recommend Aria! Aria is one of the most patient and understanding people that I have ever met. She has a true passion for teaching and that can be seen during each lesson through a variety of vocal techniques. So far, our vocal pedagogy has included: how proper singing technique is accomplished, breathing and air support for singing, posture, diction, vowels and articulation, range extension, and tone quality. Music has always been an important part of my life and I am grateful to have Aria as my vocal coach in order to further develop my voice. I have learned many helpful techniques from her and I am looking forward to learning more.

What I have appreciated the most about working with Aria, is her ability to identify the areas where my voice can grow. I completely trust that our work together will help me reach my goals. On a personal level, Aria is very friendly and really helped me believe in myself.

I do hope we get to study together. I do not want my degrees to go to waste. I sing, and teach singing, simply because I love doing so. I love to learn. And singing is a bottomless rabbit hole never find your way out but enjoy every moment along the way kind of activity: For both the student and the teacher. Never. Never does one regret singing lessons. You cannot be unhappy and singing at the same time. Or at least feel protected. It's sacred, profane, secular, meaningless, profound, and any other word... it's that too. So shall we sing together?
