I sing in international houses as an opera singer, and I would love to pass on everything that I have learned over my twenty years of singing onstage. I specialize in classical voice, but good singing technique is universal, and I would be very happy to assist you at any level, from the very beginner to the very advanced. My core vocal principals are breath, alignment, placement, and last but definitely not least, joy and love of music. I am also a pianist, and I can assist you with piano or music theory/ learning skills.

About Shelley J.

My name is Shelley and I am an opera singer working internationally. I am particularly skilled at teaching classical voice, but I also can teach musical theater styles, as well as piano up to an intermediate level (I wanted to be a pianist originally- it is my first love!) eI believe everyone can benefit from a basic knowledge of music theory, and I would aim to incorporate this in lessons! For singers, I teach all from very beginners to very advanced, and my core principles are breathing, alignment, placement, and most of all joy. For those interested in opera, in the past couple years I have sung the title roles in Tosca, Anna Bolena, Manon, Mimi in La bohème, Tatyana in Eugene Onegin, and Donna Anna in Don GIovanni, among others. I speak Italian, French and German fluently, and I have degrees from The Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University, Temple University, plus further studies at the Academy of Vocal Arts, Centro Universale di Bel Canto in Italy, and apprenticeships with the Santa Fe Opera and the Opernhaus Zürich.
