Hello! My name is Charlea Lyn, and I want to begin by thanking you for taking a look at my profile. It has always been one of my firm beliefs that anyone can sing as singing can be defined by “uttering words or sounds in succession with musical modulations of the voice.” Therefore, with this mentality in mind I feel as though it is not a job, but more a privilege to be able to teach people to sing.

My parents say I started singing before I could talk, however, I seriously started taking lessons when I was 14. Over the course of my lessons, I fell in love with opera, and decided that was what I wanted to pursue as a career path. That decision led me to SUNY Fredonia, where I received my BM in Music Education and Vocal Performance, and later to the San Francisco Conservatory of Music where I received my MM in Vocal Performance in May '13 under the tutelage of Catherine Cook.

One of the most important things that I have learned thus far, is that singing is a truly expressive art form that requires hard work, diligence, and commitment. It is my goal to bring each of my students the farthest I can in healthily developing their technique as well as work on the emotional portrayal and fundamental building blocks of music. Although I teach each student specific to his or her individual needs and desires, my lessons usually consist of three parts - technique exercises, sight singing, and repertoire. Furthermore, other things that stay consistent are a comfortable and safe environment for the student, my undivided attention, all the information that I have to share with others, and most importantly FUN!

Although it is my personal decision to pursue opera and classical music, I have experience in musical theatre and am comfortable teaching a variety of genres. I truly believe that although each genre is different, the foundation and principles of healthy singing are the same.

Not every teacher is right for every student. However, I do my best to give all my students lessons in a comfortable and productive learning environment. I hope that you will take the next step of your path towards healthy and beautiful vocal production with me. Thank you for your time and consideration and I hope to hear from you soon!

I would recommend Charlea to anyone. I hadn’t sung since leaving elementary school 16 years ago and was really nervous about starting again. Charlea was welcoming and encouraging from the start. Each lesson is always fun which helps if you don’t have much confidence to begin with, afterwards Charlea sends an email with a reminder of how you did and what to work on for next time. 10/10.

Charlea is OUTSTANDING. Cant say enough about her professionalism and personality. She makes you feel comfortable and confident - no matter what level of singing you are at. I leave each session feeling so empowered. Shes a joy to work with - she’s someone who knows alot about singing and shes very humble. Feels like being in session with your close friend. I’d recommend her if you’re looking for an instructor who truly meets you wherever you are, makes your lessons consistenly meaningful, and most important makes you feel CAPABLE of achieving your goals. A+++

My daughter stated that she really liked working with Charlea and felt that she learned more in this 1 lesson than she had learned in the entire year with another instructor.

I had a great first lesson with Charlea. She's an excellent teacher who focuses on her students' particular needs and moves at an appropriate pace. The lesson was all work and no filler, and I already made more progress than I had with hours of prior lessons and self-directed research.

Five years ago, my daughter at the age of 12 showed interest in classical singing. We were so lucky to find Charlea to hold her hand, give her introduction to classical singing, and through out the next 3 years, my daughter took weekly lessons with Charlea. With Charlea's help and guidance, my daughter was able to shine in her classes and secured many solo performances throughout high school.

Charlea is a wonderful educator, beautiful singer and she has a gentle soul.
