Laura R. Houston, TX

About Laura

I am a mezzo soprano with a bachelor and masters of music degree in vocal performance from the University of Houston. I am pursuing a career in opera while teaching private voice and piano lessons, During my voice lessons I like to focus on developing the student's voice through a classical approach. By forming a strong foundation in healthy singing the student will be able to sing in various genres without strain to his/her voice. In my piano lessons I use the series of method books, Piano Adventures, developed by Nancy and Randall Faber. Through these instructions the student will learn to read music as well as establish a proficiency for playing the piano. *** Lesson Details *** If you take lessons from me we will have fun while working hard. I develop my lessons around what I ...

Charles D. Houston, TX

I teach a vocal technique which is called singing on the speaking level, or "Singing with the ease of Speech". It provides the student with a systematic approach to link together all the registers of the voice-chest and head. The student and I work together to build a bridge between the low voice and high voice, (through the break) combining those parts in the middle creating "the mix" ( a blend of chest and head voice), that most singers struggle to master and the vast majority of teachers don't know how to teach or identify. This allows the singer to access all of his or her range without strain. A student would begin to experience positive results within a few weeks of study, both in the studio and with practice between lessons.

One of the best things about this technique is that it allows you to sing any style of music. Whether you sing Pop/R&B, Rock, country, musical theater, gospel, or opera, you can experience vocal freedom and confidence that every singer wants to have. As

I couldn't have asked for a better voice teacher. I am soooo happy I found him. His singing philosophy works for me. After just three lessons, I have received some valuable tools that have already improved the quality of my singing voice. Not only is he a great teacher but he is professional and very hospitable. He is great to work with. Its not just a job for him, he enjoys what he does. He cares about the development of his students. I'm excited to see how much I will grow in a year from now.

We cannot say enough great things about having Monique as a private voice coach. My 13-year-old daughter connects with her very well. My daughter's breathing, tone, pitch, and overall singing quality have improved dramatically in the few months that Monique has been instructing her.

Amazing instructor, very precise concepts

Mrs. Paula is a great instructor. I have come to understand and apply all of her lessons. I actually feel like in advancing fairly well.

When an excise in challenging, Ms. Paula helps me through that particular lesson and she is very patient with me.

She has a great spirit and smiles all the time.

She is always present and available.

I would recommend her to anyone who is interested in learning how to play the piano.
Troy W. Houston, TX

I have been teaching this subject for over 13 years. There is no specific curriculum as each student will come to lessons with their own unique skills, needs, and goals. Lessons are tailored to those specifics. It is not necessary to know how to read music at the first lesson for beginners. However, learning to read is required for subsequent lessons and will be a large focus for all non-readers. Music is not learned "by ear." A certain amount of theory will be a part of every lesson just as technique and repertoire. Concerning repertoire, it may be selected from the western classical, musical theatre, and popular rep based on the student's goals and learning needs with their input. The main emphasis on performance lessons, however, will be technique and reading. Students should come to the first lesson prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study.

Troy is the best vocal instructor ever! I feel like I hit the jackpot in finding him as my coach. He is extremely knowledgeable and great at communicating concepts that might otherwise be difficult to understand. My vocal technique and confidence has improved so much since I started taking lessons from Troy in September 2014. I was so impressed with my progress with Troy that I have now expanded my lessons to twice a week. Troy is great at making a plan to help me achieve my goals, and he is right with me every step of the way. I am so grateful to have an instructor that not only helps me get better, but also has an inspiring attitude to share a love for music.
