Lesson Details

Singing

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I put this subject here because I wanted to be clear that I am willing to work with all singers, experienced or just starting out, from people who are simply interested in how their voice works to those looking for professional level training. I am also happy to work on different styles, including basics of jazz and pop, as well as musical theater and classical music.

September 2012

Hello, I'm Natalie, and I am a soprano. I enjoy performing as a soloist, chamber singer, and professional chorister in the Pacific Northwest, Midwest, and Italy. I taught private voice lessons to middle school and high school students at an independent school, as well as free-lance lessons with adult singers, for my last three years in Chicago leading up to my move to Seattle recently. I also became a certified teacher in Illinois in music for K-12, including general music, band, orchestra, and chorus, which is what I used to do full time before deciding to balance my career more evenly between teaching and performing.

As a soloist, my recent performances include my Artist Diploma recital with Byron Shenkman (harpsichord) and Janet See (baroque flute), the Bach's Lunch concert series with Henry Lebedinsky (harpsichord, organ), and the Classical Music Nights at Cafe Racer concert series, all here in Seattle. Other significant solo performances include Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 (2015), Purcell’s Te Deum Laudamus (2014), Mendelssohn’s Hear My Prayer (2014), Fauré’s Requiem (2013), and Bach’s Magnificat (2012). As a chorister in 2013 I rocked it hard singing with the Rolling Stones. I received my Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University in 2010 and 2015, respectively. I am a recent graduate of the Artist Diploma in Early Music program at Cornish College of the Arts.

Experience

Voice Teacher
Jun 2012 - Present
freelance

I work with private voice students who schedule lessons regularly (weekly) as well as occasionally (for "tune-ups" or special projects) to study vocal technique, musicianship skills (reading and performing music), singing in multiple languages (English, Italian, German, French, and Spanish are my specialties for singing diction), preparing for auditions, preparing parts and roles for shows, and also simply to explore the voice and explore a love for singing and music!

Private voice teacher in the music department working with students between 5th grade - 12th grade. Students are required to study 1-2 classical or classic folk solo pieces each semester as a minimum to work on musicianship and vocal technique, and are then welcome to branch out into the genre of their choice including jazz, musical theater, and pop where we continue those musicianship and technical skills. Students performed solos in two recitals each school year.

She is very precise re: breathing technique to further enhance my singing ability, and timing on hitting the high notes.
