Opera Voice · In studio

I absolutely love Dr. Galer. She's helping me choose a repertoire for college auditions and I have already leaned so much with her over the first 5 lessons, including music theory, European language pronunciation (IPA), breathing and relaxation techniques, and projection. Looking forward to continuing to learn with her.

I am so blessed to have met with Dr. Galer!! Having a lifelong dream to sing has been something I've always wanted to pursue but something that has always felt so intangible to pursue. She is incredibly patient and kind and has the keen ability to help reach her students in the unique way each one can understand and grasp. Through working with her, I find myself growing and stretching as a singer in ways I didn't think were possible for me. She definitely pushes you and challenges you to grow while also doing it in a loving way that supports your journey. Highly recommend.
