Proper technique, warm ups, exercises, theory, ear training, proper repertoire based on age, ability and voice part. Preparation to audition for and perform in opera or for school.

About Jennifer
My name is Jennifer. I got my degree in vocal performance and minored in Jazz. I began voice lessons myself when I was eight. I am a mezzo soprano, and can teach both female and male voices. I have performed in several opera productions including but not limited to The Marriage of Figaro, Dido and Aeneus, Tenderland, and Hand of Bridge. I have worked and performed in masterworks by Brahms, Chopin, Mozart to name a few. I studied in French, English, Spanish, Italian, and German. I studied diction, ear training, piano, music history, pedagogy, and music theory. I have also performed with artists such as New York Voices, Bobby Mcferrin and Kurt Elling. I was blessed with many learning opportunities to grow in my passion and I would love to pass that knowledge and passion to anyone who wants to learn.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are de
signed around the needs of each student. The first lessons is always spent testing range, knowledge and abilities already known by the student. Then the student weighs in on what kind of music they would like to learn and what they hope to gain from the lessons. Theory and ear training are incorporated into the lessons. We work on breathing, technique and style. Generally we start with English or Italian. We work on vocal performance from a classical standpoint but Jazz and Broadway can also be taught if desired by the student. Scales and exercises are given each week to be worked on until the next lesson. A recording device is encouraged if the student cannot play the piano. Also, a voice note book to take notes during the lesson to be used during practice during the week.

*** Specialties ***
classical voice, jazz voice, musical theater, audition preparation

About Barry
Hello! A little about me... I have a Bachelors Degree in Music, 15 years of performing experience, and 10 years of teaching experience. I would love to share what I've learned to help you find your authentic sound. I try to approach each student individually vs treating everyone the same, catering to learning styles and willingness to learn. I hope to see you soon!

*** Lesson Details ***
I think everyone is born with the capacity to sing, with their own unique voice. I think often times we "get in our own way" and hold ourselves back from truly realizing our potential. I would love to help find your true voice so that you can do anything you want, whether it's singing in the shower or in front of thousands of adoring fans at Carnegie Hall!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Practice rooms with upright pianos.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If t
here is no piano, we can work from the mp3 player or a cd player and make it work!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Jazz voice, improvisation (scatting) and Broadway singing. I am also trained in Acting.

Charleston, SC

I believe that anyone who can speak can learn to sing! I teach based on music theory, technique, and repertoire building. The three register method I use can be applied to any style of singing from Opera to Pop. I have an Artist Certificate in Voice, a BA in Voice Performance, and an MAT in Choral Conducting. My specialty is Vocal Pedagogy, which means that I teach students the correct way to sing to ensure a safe and healthy instrument. I have been teaching private voice for ten years, and have a proven track record of students who have gone on to be successful in achieving their goals.

About Andrea
I began singing in a local children's choir when I was ten, and haven't looked back since! I attended the Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities in Greenville, SC where I studied Opera and Musical Theater Voice. I then went to the College of Charleston where I completed a BA in Voice Performance and an MAT in Choral Conducting. I love singing, and love teaching others to love singing as well! I teach music full time and am the Musical Theater Director at Porter Gaud in Charleston, SC. I teach voice using registers and correct technique so that my students can sing whatever style of music best suits their interests. I am an avid Vocal Pedagogist and I present at State and National level conferences in the field of healthy singing.

Opera A to Z

About Patrice
My interest is in developing singers to become a better version of themselves and help them reach their goals. Many of my students are singing professionally in Colorado, New York and internationally.

Background includes international and national performance credits in both opera and musical theatre. My last major gig was Carlotta in Andrew Lloyd Webber's German production of Phantom of the Opera in Hamburg, Germany for ten years.
We sang eight times a week in German! All backstage activities were in English due to the truly International cast. I loved every minute of living and working in Continental Europe.

In May, I'll be singing one of the leading soprano roles with Opera Fort Collins in The Fairy Queen by Purcell. I'm hoping my costume will have a set of white wings like the Gynbourne production.

Hampton, NJ

Drawing from his experience as an opera singer in venues throughout out the US, including the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and Carnegie Hall, I address proper posture, vowel placement, pronunciation and interpretation.

About Steven
Since 1998, I have taught students of all ages in multiple genres. Many of my alumni have gone on to become voice and music theatre majors at some of the most prestigious programs in the USA, as well as becoming professional performing and recording artists all around the world, so I have gone online so that I can reach out to my students anywhere on Earth!

Online lessons allow us to work together without having to waste time traveling to my studio, not to mention wasting money on transit, tolls, gas or parking. Additionally, it has allowed me to offer my lessons for considerably less than I did "in-person." In addition to singing lessons, I've also worked with online students on monologues, on-camera instructional videos and voiceovers.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

My daughter has expressed a love for music and singing from a very early age. As a parent, I thought she had a beautiful voice and that was confirmed by a good friend of mine who recommended me to Steven. I started Olivia with Steven when she was 9 years old. Through his instruction and guidance her voice has grown tremendously. She was awarded a major role as a 5th grader in her school play and then went on to be the lead as a 6th and 7th grader. She was the youngest student in the history of the school to earn a lead role.

Olivia also auditioned for the Paper Mill Playhouse Summer Conservatory and was accepted for their August Intensive program. I have no doubt that it was Steven's teaching that helped her with her audition that gained her acceptance.

Olivia is now 12 and as a young person, needs to learn how to interpret a song so that she can perform it well. Steven takes the time to teach the MEANING of the words and explains the story that is trying to be told. This was very important for Olivia to learn.

I highly recommend working with Steven. He is a fabulous teacher with a lot of knowledge and insight.

I would like nothing better than to help you discover and develop your voice's greatest potential. Singing embodies many elements including proper tone production, rhythmic accuracy, proper diction and connecting to and sharing the emotional content of a song. It is a personal journey for singers to learn how to integrate all those elements into their own instruments and I will act as your trusted and supportive guide throughout the process. I have a master's degree in classical vocal performance from the renowned Manhattan School of Music and performed with opera companies in New York City. Currently, in New Orleans, I sing with the joyous Shades of Praise interracial gospel choir. I have had the privilege of studying with some of the finest voice teachers, conductors and coaches that America has to offer and I would love to share that combined knowledge with others.

About Sheila
I would like nothing better than to help you discover your true voice. The journey of developing one's true voice integrates many elements including proper tone production, rhythmic accuracy, diction, memorization, and the ability to connect with and convey the emotional context of songs. It would be my privilege to guide you on that journey as a patient, supportive and encouraging teacher.

I have a Master's degree in classical vocal performance from the renowned Manhattan School of Music and I performed with opera companies in New York city. Throughout my singing journey I had the privilege to work with some of the finest voice teachers, conductors and coaches America has to offer. I love to share that tradition, knowledge and wisdom with my students.

I now live in the musically vibrant city of of New Orleans and sing with the joyo
us Shades of Praise Interracial Gospel choir.

On the journey of developing your true voice, I understand how to coach appropriately for a variety of singing styles beyond classical including broadway, jazz, pop, blues, country and gospel. I will help you integrate the fundamentals of proper tone production, accurate rhythm, diction and interpretation across genres. If you are interested in the classical genre, I am well equipped to coach Italian, German and French diction and would love to help prepare high school students who may be preparing to audition for college music programs.

Due to medical circumstances, I had the agonizing and humbling challenge of losing some of my vocal ability and I went through the process of rebuilding my voice. I am committed to making sure my students at all levels sing healthfully and sustainably. If you are someone who has experienced vocal damage, I am happy to work with you to healthfully rebuild your instrument.

In addition to my singing, I have a career in eLearning and understand how to make learners feel comfortable and authentic in an online learning environment.

If you are in the New Orleans metro area, I have a comfortable home studio with piano and great acoustics or I can travel to your home within a 15 mile radius.

I've learned so much in a short period of time with Sheila. She is very easy to get a long with and not intimidating despite her distinguished resume. She has helped me immensely with the awareness of my voice and allowed me to explore my instrument in ways I hadn't try before. Sheila is patient and will continue to approach and explain a technique from different angles (with humour!) until it is grasped. Thanks to her I feel more confident and aware when I'm singing. So thank you very very much!

I’ve always was a musician but only discovered my voice 10 years ago. I have gone through so many struggles to find my voice and I can help you find yours quicker than I did. I have gone through the wrong path and have had amazing teachers get me out of traps and dead ends and in return I’ve been able to help my students do the same. I’ve been teaching for 6 years now and it has been another passion of mine to see my students grow and achieve their dreams.

About Norman
I am a profesional operatic Bass from San Jose California and now living in Wilmington DE. While I was in California, I sung with many opera companies around the Bay Area.
Singing has been my number one passion but teaching comes in at a close second. I love seeing my students grow and watching the transformation they make while studying with me. I been teaching since 2012 and all my students have gone off to do amazing things. I hope you choose me to be your voice/piano teacher and I look forward to meeting you!

I am currently teaching vocal music in North Little Rock School District. Lessons will include breathing technique and vocal fundamentals. We will pace lessons based on goals set at the beginning of your first lesson and continue creating more goals as you develop as a musician. I am willing to teach various genres of music. Cannot wait to know you and help you find your voice!

About Micah
I have been teaching music for a few years now! I enjoy music so much! I received my degree from the University of Arkansas Little Rock. I am also a member of the worship band at my church.

One thing that I enjoy the most, as a teacher, is seeing growth and seeing students get that “aha” moment. The most amazing thing about teaching is being able to see the joy in students as they perform. They get to be themselves. Playing an instrument or singing is raw, vulnerable and takes a lot of hard work.

Being a musician is worth it. You get to be able to express yourself in ways impossible otherwise.

Please let me help you along your journey to become the musician you dream to be.

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.

I view our voice as the most powerful tool we have. From speaking to singing, our voice is what connects us with those around us. I take a holistic, dynamic, and singer-specific approach that is well grounded in the enduring bel canto technique to enable singers to access the full palette of expressive capabilities in their individual instrument. Whether you are looking to be on Broadway, sing at the Met, improve the clarity and presence of your speaking voice, or just want to sound better in the shower, I can help you access the beauty and power within your own voice, As you learn the many tools professional vocalists use, you will be free to sing in any style at any venue with confidence, and will have a blast doing it!

About Michael
I am a baritone who loves all vocal music from Pop to Musical Theatre to Opera. I have sung all over the U.S. and Europe in Musicals and Operas, and I love sharing my joy of singing with my students.

I have experience teaching classical, musical theatre, pop, worship, and country styles, and love helping students to gain the facility, strength, and artistry inherent in your own voice. I have no interest in making you sound like anything other than yourself--healthfully!

I hold a Master of Music degree in classical voice performance from the Manhattan School of Music and a Bachelor of Music in Voice and Opera Performance - Honors from Northwestern University.
