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.

Hello! My name is Shelley, and I am an opera singer working internationally. I give lessons in singing technique and repertoire, and I am passionate about spreading the love of music through singing in a freer and easier way.

I teach all levels, from the very beginners to very advanced, both children and adults, and my core principles are breathing, alignment, placement, and most of all joy!

I would love to help you find your authentic voice, from working on exercises to suggesting repertoire, and I can work in a variety of styles. I am also a pianist, so I can help you along in studying music or theory as well.

For those interested in opera careers, in the past couple years I have sung the roles of Tosca, Anna Bolena, Manon, Mimi in La bohème, Tatyana in Eugene Onegin, and Donna Anna in Don Giovanni, among others throughout Europe. As a proessional performing singer, I can offer career consultations as well, particularly for those interested in the classical fields.
