I offer extremely high quality vocal instruction. I have been a working, professional opera singer for the past 10 years, and have learned a wealth of practical knowledge about healthy singing as well as stage performing, audition technique, performance resume critique, conquering stage fright, and so much more! I'm so excited to be able to share my knowledge with each of my students. My curriculum is custom tailored to fit each student's level of expertise and their desired goals. I have taught complete beginners to SAG and AGMA member professional performers as well as everything in between. My students will learn the basics of healthy, vibrant singing and from there we will tailor style, repertoire, and personality on top. Let's find your voice together today!

About Christian S.

I am a professional opera singer and have sung on the stages of The Santa Fe Opera, San Diego Opera, the Royal Opera at the Palace of Versailles, Minnesota Opera, Des Moines Metro Opera, Utah Opera, Aspen Opera Festival, The Glimmerglass Festival, and many others. I have been reviewed professionally by such publications as The Wall Street Journal, Opera News, Seen and Heard International, Minnesota Playlist, Opera Today, and Broadway World. Although my own vocal background is almost entirely in opera, I am able to use my understanding of classical singing and apply those same healthy vocal principles to whichever style my student is interested in pursuing. I have had many successful students study rock and roll, pop, jazz, musical theater, and gospel. I try to make each lesson as fun and informative as possible. I tailor each lesson to the needs of the student that day, while also maintaining a clear direction and progression throughout our sessions together. It's my goal to come alongside each of my students and give them the tools they need to attain their vocal goals while also having a great time together.

Christian Sanders is a wonderful voice teacher; he is warm, funny, reliable and gives feedback in an encouraging way. As an adult student who enjoys singing as a hobby, I find the issue of how a teacher gives feedback to be especially important. If one is taking voice lessons for a hobby, for enjoyment, I think it is especially important to have fun. Christian brings that lightheartedness to lessons. At the same time, my singing also improved during our time together. I think that some sort of visible growth is also something especially important for adult learners. He combines the best of both worlds in his lessons and is able to do so in a way in which one also learns also how to take care of the voice. Posture, breathing, support – he explains all of this in easy to understand terms for laypeople and is able to show students a healthier way in which to sing and practice. I would highly recommend Christian!
