My name is Gretchen Tucker. I have been singing over 20 years. I have experience in a variety of choral settings, I hold a B.A. in music from Keene State College. I am also currently attending music therapy school. I am experienced in singing at weddings, funerals, patriotic, and historic events. My vocal training is popular, Broadway, religious, opera, and jazz. When I teach lessons I care much about the process, warmups, the anatomy, music theory, getting into character, vocal technique, and I have a kind and holistic approach. I believe music is a gift for everyone and that everyone can succeed. I love teaching beginners the power of music as well as seasoned musicians. I look forward to working with you.

About Gretchen T.

My name is Gretchen Tucker. I am a classically trained soprano. I have been singing for over 20 years. I hold a B.A. in Music from Keene State College and I am currently training to become a board certified music therapist. The way I have succeeded in lessons and my teaching philosophy is a holistic method. We set your goals as a singer, work on warms ups and technique, we discuss the anatomy, sing your songs, get into character. I sing a few different styles so I think I am versatile in my approach and what I have been trained for. My best areas are popular, jazz, musical theatre, and classical (religious, opera, and art songs). I also believe singing is personal and that our voices and art should be nurtured. I look forward to speaking with you to see if it is a good fit.

A talented, patient teacher, Gretchen epitomizes the best qualities for musical instruction. Her technical knowledge of music theory is by far the most complete and deepest of anyone I have encountered. She has encouraged the gradual emerging of a latent talent talent I never knew I had as I was always discouraged from attempting any musical education.
