As a vocal teacher I focus on the correct method to singing that helps keep your voice beautiful and healthy.
I earned my bachelors degree in music education with an emphasis in vocals. I learned music appreciation, theory, history, choral singing and classical voice training.
I love music and cannot picture life without it. Music is an expression of life! I also love to teach music to others as I feel I'm passing on a great gift.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher I fall somewhere in between strict and laid back. For instance, if you don't practice I won't scold you, but I will remind you that you can only be as good as you work to be. If you don't want to put in the effort you will waste your time and money, as well as not receive the results that you were desiring.
Our lessons will consist of many vocal exercises, good posture, and breathing techniques. One rule that I have is that I don't move you on to another song until you have successfully learned all you can from the first one you try. There is no point in learning another song when you have only learned the first one at a mediocre level.
If you are serious about becoming a better singer/musician you will enjoy our lessons.
I encourage my students to strive for excellence and will do all I can to draw that out of you.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide the tools to learn theory, songs to choose from and I do have my own portable keyboard. Students would need to have a tape or digital recorder to record their lessons and a positive attitude.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical voice, and vocal training, (learning how to use your voice properly).

The Lesson House

The Lesson House was a place for students to learn singing, guitar, piano, and even acting. I would give group lessons at their school or private lessons in our studio or the student's house. That was where I started teaching voice!

Amelie loves Vanessa, We started Amelie taking lessons online due to not being able to find a local Voice teacher. We have since been contacted by locals to teach Amelie and each time she has chose to stay on-line learning from Vanessa. Amelie does not get much time to practice singing, but absolutely loves to sing with Vanessa. Amelie has came a very long way in her voice ranges, also her breathing while singing. We will stay with Vanessa until Amelie can sing as well as she wishes! Amelie has Aspergers and is a quiet soul, Vanessa brings out the best in her.

Vanessa is very strong on technique and is very flexible and encouraging. My daughter is slowly moving into a more confident singing place thanks to her. If my daughter were ever to have more lessons we'd return to her without hesitation. From my daughter :"she's kind, fun and a good instructor". Thank you,Vanessa!

My daughter (age 12) really enjoyed lessons with Vanessa. She was very encouraging! She progressed quickly in a short amount of time. We really liked the availability of having lessons via Skype. It was just as good as a one on one lesson and more convenient without the drive! Highly recommend Vanessa if interested.
