Lesson Details

Classical Voice

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Experienced with teaching independently and at the college level. I tailor my teaching style to the individual student, and I pride myself in finding the exercise that works for each person. I take great care to teach a balanced and holistic vocal technique to help you maintain a healthy voice and avoid injury. I am particularly good at helping students who struggle with stage fright and performance anxiety.

Michelle really paid attention to my needs. I felt like a priority, not like I was getting the same stock responses everyone gets.

Michelle was really helpful in getting me through my stage fright. I am much more comfortable now that I have the tools I need to suceed.
