I have been a singer for over 15 years and have been a vocal coach for over 5. I had 9 years of vocal training, which I have worked to transition into a teaching style of my own. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Theatre and Vocal Performance. I have a good ear for vocal difficulties and a good assortment of solutions.
*** Lesson Details ***
I am a fun, laid back teacher, but I expect focus during the lesson. I would expect practice outside of lessons and for my students to be prepared when coming to the session. I do like to laugh and to make my students feel comfortable. My students can expect results with range, clarity, technique among others.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, music stands, speakers for MP3 players, microphones, recording equipment
*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Musical Theatre, classical, and pop.
· Singing · In home This is my first time taking singing lessons , and Gina is an awesome teacher. She makes you feel comfortable, clearly explains what she is going to make you do, and how your voice works. Very good instructor, I strongly recommend her.
· Vocal Training · In studio My daughter has been taking voice lessons with Gina since the beginning of 2013. In her opinion, Gina is a great teacher! She makes each lesson vocally entertaining as well educational. Whether it's tackling a newer pop song with a range lower than your own or a song from an operetta that requires not only a large upper register but also the classical singing characteristics , Gina has the talent and technique to help you achieve your goals!
· Singing · In studio Very professional and knowledgeable. Gina has helped my teen daughter discover her potential, while understanding the delicate balance of constructive instruction and being mindful of a teens self esteem. She also helped my daughter successfully prepare for auditions. I highly recommend her.
· Singing · In studio My 13-yr old daughter took lessons from Gina for over a year. While my daughter LOVES to sing, she is quite inhibited in front of others. Luckily, Gina is so sweet and approachable, that my daughter was able to relax and focus on singing and developing her talent. What a difference a year makes! My family is so impressed with how far and refined her voice has become. We are moving to Michigan in a couple of weeks. We wish we could take Gina with us!
