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).

After only one lesson, I was impressed with Vanessa's knowledge and professionalism. I can see she would be especially great with beginning singers. I've scheduled two more lessons.
Vanessa is absolutely amazing! I loved learning with her. She is energetic, patient, and is a great teacher. She makes every lesson so much fun. From when I started with her to now my Singing has improved significantly.
FANTASTIC!!! Patient and clear on what her expectations are and how to master your technique.
