Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Hello potential student! I have been teaching voice for the past ten years and I am a professional opera singer, but I love teaching all different styles! I received my Master of Music degree in Vocal Performance/Vocal Pedagogy from the prestigious Peabody Institute in Baltimore, MD. I believe that anyone can learn how to sing, and I am very passionate about inspiring individuality and confidence in each of my students, no matter his/her skill level! In a half-hour lesson, we usually spend the first 15 minutes doing warmups and building technique with specific exercises that strengthen the voice, extend range, improve diction, etc. The second half of the lesson is spent applying that technique to a song. You can expect to learn all of the foundations of singing in a lesson, such as correct posture and breathing, diction, musicality, etc., as well as how to deal with stage fright, confidence issues, performance practice, ear training, and/or singing in different languages.

Teaching since:

Hello future students, parents and/or guardians! Thank you for taking a moment to read my profile. I have been teaching voice/piano for ten years and counting! I am a professional opera singer and a graduate of the prestigious Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore, MD, where I received my Master of Music in Vocal Performance/Vocal Pedagogy. I have performed at Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center, and have sung with many different companies around the United States including Seattle Opera, Tacoma Opera, Utah Festival Opera, and Maryland Lyric Opera, to name a few. Even though I am a classically-trained singer, I love working on various different styles with my students. And speaking of students, some have gone on to compete and win in voice/piano competitions, talent shows, and even audition for The Voice! What ever you or your child's musical goals are, I will strive to do my best in helping you or your child attain them (and more).

Erica is amazing! She’s been teaching my daughter voice lessons for several months now and I’m impressed with the confidence and skill gained from the sessions. When we were researching potential voice teachers, it was important to us to have someone who majored in voice, and her degree focus in both vocal pedagogy and vocal performance has been like an extra bonus! Logistically wise, Erica has been flexible with our schedule and responsive in communications. Highly recommend!

Contacted her, and then went there for the initial meeting. I liked here, and told her I wanted to start lessons, and she was to email me her available times so I could chose a lesson time. It's been a week, and I never heard back from her. So, I'll take my business elsewhere.

Erica is a fantastic teacher! She has really helped me gain confidence in my singing and my voice keeps getting stronger. She is really knowledgeable about how the voice works and I have learned so much from her. I highly recommend taking lessons with Erica!
