Fantastic Teacher!!

Candace is amazing! I came to her wanting to learn the fundamentals of singing and she has gone far beyond my expectations. She is patient, and truly believes in me even when I feel as if I cannot do it. She is the best teacher I have ever come across and I couldn't ask for anything better!

She is amazing!

I came into this searching for somebody whom I thought could get me to the skill level that I so desperately desire. So far Candice has done a phenomenal job of laying the foundation of my technique in a way that I am having fun and seeing results. After 4 weeks of lessons I could not imagine working with anyone else!

My Lessons with Ms. C Changed Everything

All I knew when I first started was that I wanted to be famous. She helped me to identify my goals and she literally put me on a path to reach them. My confidence was definitely boosted because we attacked every insecurity head on and now there aren't any. I also learned how to process and use my nervous energy working with her. She's amazing! I've had lessons with some teachers who were a bit stiffer but we really went in deep and it was exactly what I needed.
Karen R. Mesa, AZ

I teach Opera Voice and have extensive curriculum and teaching materials. During the first lesson, I determine the student's vocal range by having him/her sing up and down the scale. I teach vocal techniques, correct diaphragm breathing, correct singing stance, diction and vowel formation, emoting while singing, connecting to the song, memorization techniques, understanding music history, and much more. I have a B.A. in Music Education with a vocal emphasis. I have been trained in the Alexander Technique and have had 7 semesters of private classical voice lessons. Additionally, I have sang classical music in college choir and have sung a repertoire including "The Requiem" , "Gloria". and "The Messiah."

Music Performance · In studio
Karen’s recitals, showcasing 6 to 12 students each time, always thrill
me. Men, women, boys, & girls of all ages and various degrees of
achievement stand before their audience with confidence. They have
practiced, not only the pieces which they play, but showmanship, not
pushy or cocky, but polite and welcoming. They make eye contact and
smile; some invite the crowd to sing along on the choruses. Even the
1st year students exude confidence.

The crowd returns those smiles, along with cheers and clapping. One
can tell that Karen has kindly and persistently shown and encouraged
each student. If any show fear, she does not chide; she accompanies
them in the performance and nods approval as they continue. I watch
that fear subside. They are then met with handshakes and pats on the
back. Next time, they will be even more eager to share the pieces that
they worked on and not expect criticism.

Karen picks a theme and arranges guitar, piano, and voice selections,
intermingled into a program that leaves a person well entertained and
planning to come back next time. I am not related to any of the
participants and have no obligation to be at the recitals. I love the
music, the talent, and the progress that I see and hear. You, too,
will be glad you came.

Guitar · In studio
I am 73 years old and have always wanted to play a guitar, Karen is a member of our church choir and had mentioned that she teaches guitar and piano. I asked if I could take lessons this past June and she agreed to teach me. I am so happy that Karen is teaching me to play a guitar, I did not think I would ever be able to do that but I am learning thanks to her great teaching skills, patience and fantastic knowledge of music. She is very encouraging and teaches on my level of understanding never above my head. I would recommend Karen to anyone that has a desire to learn to play a guitar she is perfect for me!

awesome!

Lauren is awesome! She is extremely patient, warm and respectful. She's passionate about teaching and singing...even musical theater. Every lesson was catered to my needs and we focused on what would make me the best performer at my audition. She even helped me with my monologue. If I was staying in Chicago, she would definitely become a permanent teacher for me. Highly recommended.

Ms. Fleming is an excellent teacher, patient, encouraging, and working from a
broad range of experience. As a teacher myself (English), I really appreciate those qualities. Her experience across multiple instruments and music genres is especially appealing to me, as I play several instruments and am interested in many types of music. She gives me hope that I can develop some facility on
upright bass, a dream I have had since I was a boy. (Note: Her insights into how to practice are really helpful.)

About Cassandra

Welcome to Studio C! I recently graduated with honors from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, earning a Master of Music in Voice Performance. I also hold a Bachelor of Music from Arizona State University. An emerging opera singer myself, I sing with Arizona Opera in Phoenix and Tucson. I am available for private voice lessons serving the Phoenix metro area in historic Central Phoenix. Students learn to let go of inhibitions, release tensions, find a natural voice, and let that voice grow. Studying both classical and music theater repertoire and techniques, students develop effective breathing, a supported tone, and an agile voice suitable for any genre of singing. Motivated students who have a musical background are most successful in my studio. I'm pretty down to earth ...

Cassandra has a lovely and gentle way of encouraging the best out of her students. One of her strengths is her uplifting and positive reinforcement. Because she believes that singing is more an outpouring of one's soul, she will always do her best to make you feel comfortable as she engages you in singing and also as she engages you as a person.

I enjoy her as a teacher and also as a friend. I believe I will know her for the rest of my life and continue to take lessons from her as much as possible. I highly recommend her!
