Lesson Details

Singing

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Experienced voice teacher available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation o vocal skills. I specialize in a classical operatic style and musical theater style. I also recommend bringing a recorder (there is one on most phones) and a pencil. I will also suggest song book based on their level and voice type.

Morgan is the best singing teacher I've ever had! She is kind, patient, understanding, and she cares a lot about vocal health. Morgan has helped me grow immensely in just a few months. My range has improved and my break is much better than it used to be. I used to have no high range at all and now I can touch a high E flat! I can't recommend her highly enough!
