Unlock your voice! You can sing! While you may have a goal in mind, such as preparing for a BFA program or joining a choir, the process is how you get there.

If you choose lessons for your child, in addition to having fun, they will:​
-Sing with more joy and freedom
-Express themselves through music
-Learn how to read music
-Cultivate the confidence to engage in school and community opportunities
-Benefit academically as a musical study is proven to improve a student's overall performance

I will guide you through the mechanics:
-Posture and breathing
-Resonance
-Diction and articulation
-Exercises to warm up and grow your voice
-How to sing in different styles such as classical, musical theatre, pop, and rock
-Learn to read music
-Prepare for a performance

I work with singers of all ages - children, teens, adults, and seniors. Actors and voice-over actors. Public speakers and those who work from home and want to speak more clearly in Zoom meetings. If you want to improve your voice, I can help you.
We will set your goals together to move you towards finding and unlocking your voice.

About Lisa C.

We will set your goals together to move you towards finding and unlocking your voice.

I have been teaching singing since 1998. I teach children, teens, and adults online and at my studio on the North Shore of Massachusetts. Read testimonials.

I have performed extensively throughout New England and the Greater Boston area in Musical Theatre, Dinner Theatre, Cabaret, Choirs, and soloist.

I owned and operated Kindermusik With Friends at St. John's in Beverly Farms. During that time, I developed skills to teach young children music and movement in a developmentally appropriate way.

In addition to performing and teaching, I authored curriculum for Little Amadeus, in conjunction with National Association for Music Education for the Music In Our Schools, that aired on American Public Television. In addition, I frequently speak at teacher professional development conferences, present workshops on music and learning, and freelance write arts-based educational curriculum and teacher training classes.

I am a member of NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing), MTNA (Music Teachers National Association), MMTA (Massachusetts Music Teachers Association), and the Boston Singers Resource. In addition, I am a member of NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) and the Golden Key Society and a and past member of the PKE (Partnership of Kindermusik Educators) KEA (Kindermusik Educators Association).

WHAT TO EXPECT
If you want to sing in a band, at church, prepare for an audition, talent show, learn about posture, relaxation, resonance, performance preparation, or just get started singing because you have always wanted to, I want to help you be the best singer you can be. I teach classical, Broadway, the American Song Book/Standards, and more. In addition, I teach sight singing, help students learn how to sing when they accompany themselves and am an acting coach. Need help with your monologue, too?

I'm a voice actor in Los Angeles and I've taken lessons with Lisa remotely via Zoom, Skype and FaceTime. She's an excellent teacher and very committed to her students' success. I recommend her highly.

Lisa has been giving my daughter voice lessons on and off since she was 9. She is wonderful. My daughter enjoys her lessons! Lisa has been very flexible and understanding with the ever changing teenage schedule. I highly recommend Lisa to singers if all levels.

Lisa is talented, patient, kind, encouraging, and EXTREMELY knowledgeable!! She provides a safe, supportive environment to ensure vocal growth! Lisa trained me from starting as a beginner to the young professional performer I am today. I cannot recommend her enough!
