Learning or perfecting skills can often feel intimidating and challenging at times. In each personalized lesson, it is my goal that you feel encouraged and appreciated for the unique singer or learner you are. I will give you the tools you need to become a confident and composed performer and to reach your goals as a student. I will provide fun and interactive exercises that help you master the basics of breath, posture, tone, diction, and the foundations of musicianship. Students will learn how to prepare a song and how to present a song in dramatic and interpretive form. Students will learn how to prepare for auditions and competitions (choral, solo, theatre role, etc.), and how to overcome stage fright and other challenges that are unique to live performance. I use a variety of teaching tools such as physical movement, imagery, and visual aids. I specialize in classical singing, musical theatre, and the jazz/blues sound. My goal is for you to enjoy singing and to meet your goals, whether you want to just sing at home for your family or land a leading role in a musical!

About Louise G.

Hello! My name is Louise, and I have a vast amount of teaching experience in diverse subjects. I am primarily, a performer and voice teacher. My bachelor's degree is in vocal performance; I have over 2 decades of experience singing vocal solos, choral music, performing musical theatre roles, and competing in auditions and contests. I have over ten years experience teaching private voice lessons and directing church choral programs. I love to sing and help others meet their performance and audition goals!

I also have almost 10 years experience as an educator in public schools. I hold a master's degree in special education, and worked in classrooms with students with intellectual disabilities, learning disabilities, and behavioral disorders. This experience gives me an edge that allows me to modify and personalize each lesson based on student demeanor and ability.

I am also an online English teacher (native speaker) and Spanish tutor (beginner level).

Mrs. Gast is an amazing vocal instructor. She taught me breath control and vocal placement witch is some of the big things I struggled with. She helped me to achieve many goals such as winning region for best in a one act play. She has helped shape and mold my voice to be the best it can be. There is no better instructor out there!!!!

Louise was an amazing vocal instructor. She helped me improve my overall tone, increase my breath support, learn sight singing, and she spent ages working on helping me feel more confident. To this day, I recall her lessons as I sing for my local worship team.

Excellent, excellent, excellent! She relates very well and determines what is the best way to learn. I couldn’t be more pleased with the fundamentals she teaches and then how she builds on that foundation!
