Interested in taking singing lessons in San Antonio? San Antonio has one of the most culturally diverse music scenes in the country. Visiting one of the many music venues, festivals, Broadway shows, regional/community theaters, or open mic nights will give you an overwhelming view of what the city has to offer. Situated just south of the “live music capitol of the world,” Austin, TX, San Antonio is sure to have a plethora of opportunity to make that newfound voice heard!
Here are a few resources to check out as you’re taking singing lessons in San Antonio:
Open Mic Nights - As the 7th largest city by population in America, San Antonio has plenty of amateur mic nights hosted all throughout the city, on every night of the week. Getting up and playing an original or cover song for a few friends (or a few hundred) is a great way to be heard and hone your performance skills. This is a great opportunity to put your ongoing training to the test. Stay informed and book your time on openmicsanantonio.com.
Audition - San Antonio is rich with a thriving community musical theatre infrastructure. Take advantage of upcoming auditions, and take your Broadway singing to a deeper, more specific level. Sheldon Vexler Theatre, Boerne Community Theatre, Cameo Theatre, and the Woodlawn Theatre are among the most well-known in town. For those of you with a few years of experience under your belt, check out the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, where they open operas, ballets, musicals, concerts, and plays cast from a vast array of local talent. A great way to learn Broadway-style singing is to work through a specific show, identifying certain vocal colors, styles, and timbre, connecting the voice to the action of the piece. Stay informed of upcoming auditions through SATHEATRE (satheatre.com/eauditions).
Another great way to learn about singing and performing in general is to take in a concert. San Antonio is very rich with live music event venues. Ranging from the outdoor hipster bars to the chic and elegant concert halls, we have one of everything. One of the most well-known places featuring local talent in the city is Sam’s Burger Joint. After it was voted Best Live Music Venue in 2010, Sam’s renovated their already amazing setup, and has become, in my opinion, one of the best music venues in the country. They host shows up to five times a week, and it is a great way to meet other musicians growing in the same way you are. Check out their up-and-coming acts on samsburgerjoint.com.
Come and join one of the fastest-growing music cities in the country! Perform at the old stomping grounds of Christopher Cross, Ernest Tubb, and George Strait. Become part of the scene that so many songs are written about. Taking singing lessons in San Antonio is only the first step -- the next is to share your ongoing cultivation with a city who loves and survives on music!
I studied voice with Professor Herald Stark. I have performed in several operas and musicals. I was a member of the San Antonio Mastersingers for five years. In 1992 I performed with the Mastersingers and the American Symphony Orchestra at Carnegie Hall. In the 1980s I led a professional madrigal group called the Silver Swan Singers.
The techniques that I employ will allow the singer more ease of vocal production and therefore an enhanced quality of sound. This leads to an Improvement in both tone and pitch.
Through my chorale experience, I learned techniques to improve various aspects of the voice, including flexibility, head voice and chest voice. I go over exercises with students to help develop desired aspects of their singing. If desired, I provide recordings to help my students go over exercises for singing and ear training. I believe that everybody has the ability to sing in some kind of way, no matter the vocal range. It is just a matter of finding a singing style that the student is interested in and developing it. I shape lessons around the student's interest in music and singing and explore ways the student can use their voice to create music, soulfully. If desired, I can include singing and playing with piano, guitar or ukulele.
