Experienced mezzo-soprano and vocal coach for 5+ years.

My lessons are heavily based on the student's goals and needs. The curriculum that I provide is various and individualized. Each student has a chance to hone their skills through various contrasting vocal exercises and repertoire.

I can also provide audition preparation for students who want to audition for music schools, competitions, and opera gigs.

There are many essential aspects to a successful voice and career path for a classical musician. I can help start a student's path, or help them enhance what they already have.

Want to learn to sing with ease? Or expand your knowledge on classical repertoire? Start your voice lessons now!

About Lisa R.

I'm a mezzo-soprano, and senior Vocal Performance Major at Boston Conservatory at Berklee (B.M. 21').

I have extensive performing experience, from the recitals in Carnegie Hall to the lead roles of Cherubino in the ‘Marriage of Figaro’ and the title role in ‘Carmen’. Some of my other experience includes Dritte Dame and Dritte Knabe in FAVA's production of Die Zauberflote, to more modern productions such as Esther in Springtime for Haman.

Voice students can expect to improve their technique on a week to week basis. Every voice is unique in timbre, experience and depth. I teach students how to sing without tension in their body, to sight-read, and perform with ease, confidence, and expression.

I teach voice students of all ages. I studied classical voice for over 5 years, and musical theater for 3 years. I can teach students how to sing in the classical style with ease, and expand their vocal repertoire.

My personal passion is opera but I firmly believe that great vocal technique, musical and historical knowledge is essential to every style.
