Learn to sing on your breath. This is the basis for a good singing technique and to be able to extend your range. We'll work on vocal technique so you'll develop great habits and muscle memory. We'll also work on musicality and expression through songs and arias. Find your voice! Singing should be effortless.

About Carol
I have taught voice for over twenty years. I studied music at University of California, Santa Barbara, where I received my B.A. I currently work as a professional singer for various local opera companies, music theater groups, churches and temples. I am principal soprano for Opera A La Carte and have also soloed with Repertory Opera Company, Redlands Bowl Festival, Laguna Beach Chorale and Celestial Opera Company. I have worked extensively in Los Angeles schools performing musical assemblies for students in elementary and middle grades through Southland Opera, LA Opera and Guild Opera of Southern California. My teaching experience includes private voice lessons and master classes at Idyllwild School for the Arts.

*** Lesson Details ***
I emphasize breathing techniques to free up the voice to expand your range and ease of singing. In
the lesson, we start with simple warm ups and vocalizes and then apply techniques to the songs you want to sing. I realize each student is different and I customize the lesson to the student's particular needs. I specialize in classical and music theater, however the basics of singing apply to all styles of music. In addition to working on breathing and technique for singing, we'll also focus on interpretation of the songs you are working on as well as how to overcome performance nervousness. Most students find that they are able to sing with more freedom, less tension and will have more confidence as they progress.

I also teach beginning piano, using the John W. Schaum series.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in the main room, upright piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
They need to provide a piano or keyboard if I am going to their home.
I have a piano in my home.

*** Specialties ***
I work on using the breath as a fundamental technique for singing. Singing should never hurt. I use a lot of imagery to achieve freedom in singing.

About Kate
I graduated from UTSA in the Fall of 2008, with a Bachelor of Music with a Vocal and Piano Emphasis. I have been teaching private piano and voice for 11+ years. I am fun, energetic, and patient. It brings me such joy to be able to teach children something I am so passionate about!

*** Lesson Details ***
Students need to practice 15 minutes a day. They are required to complete everything that is assigned to them that week, and be prepared for their lessons for the following week. A beginner usually in 3-6 months should be familiar with reading the basic treble and bass clef staff, be familiar with dynamic markings, beginning to understand basic music theory, tempo and minimal sight reading. Voice students study basic vocal technique, and learning to sing properly.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I usually provide the books after the paren
ts have paid for them. They should have their own instrument to work with.

*** Specialties ***
I use the Alfred method for piano.

Within minutes, I could tell that she was a very haopy person and that I would have no problem talking with her. She also challenged me to sing outside my range. I felt unsure but she encouraged me and I did okay. I can't wait for my next lesson.

About Mia
I am a professional singer and actress with opera and musical theater credits. Singing is my passion! I love to sing, and I LOVE to teach others to sing! The human voice is the most natural instrument of all, and helping others to bring out the beauty of the natural instrument that lies within them is something to which I am very devoted. I like to make students feel comfortable and at ease in lessons, and you will find that I am very warm and friendly!

Every student is unique, with their own strengths, their own areas for improvement, and their own preference for certain styles of singing. I can help you find what style makes your heart sing!

I have a broad range of credits, including the Broadway National Tour of Fiddler On The Roof with Theodore Bikel (Tzeitel understudy), and Off-Broadway in Fiorello (Marie) and The Rose Ta
ttoo (Flora). Among my many regional credits are Oliver at the Chiswick Park Theater in Sudbury, MA (Nancy), Camelot with Noel Harrison at the North Shore Music Theater in Beverly, MA (Nimue/Guinevere understudy), and Is There Life After High School with Desi Arnaz, Jr. and Sharon Lawrence at the Burt Reynolds Theater in Jupiter, FL. I currently hold the post of Soloist at First Church of Christ, Scientist, Needham, and am a Guest Soloist for The Mother Church in Boston. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, where I had four amazing years working with the head of the Music Theatre program, the brilliant and innovative director, Worth Gardner, and music director, Oscar Kosarin.

About Jennifer P.

Braintree, MA

I have trained as a classical singer since I was 13 years old, and have sung arias from Mozart to Gershwin. In my experience, healthy singing is the basis for singing any genre of music from Baroque to Broadway. There is a tendency to assume that to sing opera, you have to have a LOUD or BIG voice. I disagree. . .I think a well-placed and healthy voice can sing anything. Many of the "old time" bel canto singers such as Caruso or Galli-Curci did not have massive heavy voices, but perfect technique. Did you know, by the way, that a well-placed bel canto voice can fill an entire football stadium without any amplification? Therefore, I stress the basic bel canto principles of singing with every student: breath support, natural vocal placement, and musicality. Every student will also have the opportunity to develop musical skills such as sight reading, ear training, music theory, and diction, but all in the context of a fun and relaxed environment. We will work on the language, ...

About Jennifer
Hello, my name is Jennifer and I have over a decade of experience in teaching, conducting, and performing in the Boston-area. I teach from my home studio in Braintree, Ma and am accepting new students at this time. I look forward to working with you to develop your singing voice, musical literacy, and confidence in performing. I train students in the Italian Bel Canto (beautiful singing) method because it builds strong and healthy voices. I welcome children over age five, older beginners, intermediate students, and amateurs. I believe every student deserves quality musical and vocal training, regardless of whether they intend to pursue a musical career or not. As a teacher and singer, I focus mainly on classical singing which develops a good foundation for other genres. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I have been working with Jen on music for over ten years. Just recently, in the last 6 months or so, I went to her to help me tackle a specific problem in my voice. Within just a few lessons, she developed an insight into how to help me, and we began to make real progress. I now have a specific pathway in which I am confident that with persistent work, I can overcome this problem. Jen has real insight into the human voice, and true compassion and patience when working with others.

Learning to sing can be scary! It is my mission to provide a safe, supportive learning environment for students where they can develop skills to be a confident performer. It is important to me that students study in genres that they are the most comfortable; I myself have a love of all genres of music, including classical, musical theater, pop, rock, folk, and even punk. In my studio, students will learn and maintain a healthy technique for their instrument to be able to achieve any of their creative or professional goals. In addition to learning voice technique, we will strive towards a well-rounded music education that includes music theory, ear-training, and music literacy.

About Terry
I am a professional soprano, flutist, and composer; I graduated from Bridgewater State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Music. While in school, I won the 2014 Concerto Competition and was awarded an ATP Grant in 2015 for my original compositions for mezzo-soprano and piano. Since graduating, I have been active in the south shore and greater Boston area performing all kinds of Classical and Musical Theater works.

Voice students can expect to learn the essentials of healthy voice technique including proper posture, breathing, onset, etc, in a fun and supportive teaching environment. It is important to me that students are given the tools to be independent singers and artists ; so they can understand any vocal problems they are experiencing with the ability to solve it.

I love all genres of music and I prefer when students sing what
they are most comfortable performing; healthy technique can be learned within any genre.

Do you love to sing more contemporary music? Or are you more interested in classical voice? With training in both of these genres I can help you start to establish a base of technique for any genre, or expand on a base of technique. So that you can sing with more ease and able to put your own spin and unique touch on your favorite songs! I believe that singing should be a fun and expressive experience, and to free up your voice to get you sounding amazing!

About Sarah
I'm an upcoming freshman in a college of music with my principal instrument in voice but I also play piano, guitar, ukulele, and saxophone! I have been studying voice for 10 years and piano for 6, I have a base in classical training for voice but have expanded more recently towards contemporary styles of singing.

I currently perform in 3 bands locally and have a passion for live music. I believe that music can be one of the most amazing forms of expression that a person can have and love to have been a part of someone else's musical journey! I love to teach music theory as a way to open up the possibilities of self expression through playing and/or singing!

Students of voice can expect to go through a warm up routine at the beginning of a lesson before going into full musical pieces, these can include any genre and can be songs that yo
u choose and bring in or songs that I can provide from my library.

Students of piano can expect a more technique based approach going more by some piano technique books which will then expand into figuring out and playing songs that you hear on the radio!

I firmly believe that music is a wonderful gift and I hope that I get to be a part of your unique musical journey and help you become the best musician you can possibly be!
