New Orleans, LA

I am a classically trained singer and have been performing for over 15 years in Europe and USA.
I teach Voice since 2009.
Bel canto (Italian, "beautiful singing") is a technique that originates in the days of Italian opera where control and the tone quality of the voice were paramount.
From the beginning (and always), I will emphasize the basics -- posture, breathing, and tone production.
Your developing technique will be tested with traditional and classic songs and arias. Correct pronunciation of English in singing is built on the foundation of the simple and pure vowels of Italian. This also applies to singing in French, Spanish, German, and Russian. Further, the classical musical literature in Italian is very well suited to building and displaying great voices.

I've given successfully online lessons via TakeLessons Classroom and if you are interested here is a list with some of the advantages:
1. Quality of the teacher: I believe it is better to have online lessons ...

About Denise
I hold a Master's in Voice Performance degree from University of New Orleans and Bachelor of Science degree in Voice Performance from State Music Academy, Sofia, Bulgaria.
In 2001, I toured with International European Opera Company which performed numerous times in Denmark, France, Italy and USA.
I currently perform and teach in the New Orleans area and love to share my knowledge and experience with my students. There is so much more to performance then just beautiful vocalizing.....

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching is based on my own personal, classical training from Europe and North America. Whether it's opera, oratorio, musical theater or pop-style singing that is desired, I believe that classical technique is an essential source of proper singing that can be used to train singers of all genres.
Just like a piano, flute or vi
olin, your voice is an instrument.
The purpose of voice lessons is to help you develop a beautiful and dynamic singing voice and also to teach you to use your voice in a healthy age-appropriate way that will keep you singing for many years to come!
As your teacher, I want your lesson to be more than just singing through a few songs.
While what specifically happens during a voice lesson can vary greatly from student to student and from week to week, the overall structure of the lessons remains similar.
We will always start with some combination of warm-ups for your breath, body, and voice. Just as you wouldn't go running without first stretching and warming up your muscles, you don't want to start singing full songs without first getting your body and voice warmed up.
Warm-ups will also introduce you to new techniques for properly using your voice in a healthy and beautiful way.
After warm-ups, we will work on songs. Typically, you will sing through the song once, and then we will go through it in small, manageable chunks, applying the techniques from the warm-ups to the songs.
During the lesson we will also work on expression and acting. A song isn't just pretty notes—it tells a story. If it's a song from a musical, there's a specific character that sings it. It's your job as a singer to tell the story and to make it fun and exciting for the audience.
While there's a lot of hard work that goes on during a lesson, voice lessons are lots of fun! As your teacher, I am here to encourage you, support you, and guide you in your vocal studies. I look forward to working with you soon!

Richmond, CA

Singing has been my passion since the age of 4. The voice is very special - it empowers us to live the lives we desire, communicate with others, and express ourselves. It is my mission to help others discover and develop their voices, thereby freeing them to use it as they choose.

Beyond the functional voice, I teach performance skills, musicianship, music reading, foreign language diction, phonetics, and so much more! I have a Bachelors in Music Education, a Masters in Performance, and a performance resume ranging from jazz to opera.

I love working with singers of all ages and experience levels. I know how to engage with children and adults alike for a productive, enriching musical experience, so whether you are a sings-all-the-time 2nd grader, a recreational karaoke buff, a devoted choral singer, or an operatic baritone, you have a place in my studio.

About Paige
I'm so happy to meet you! My name is Paige, a California transplant from Texas by way of Tennessee. I've taught since 2007 and enjoy teaching singers of all ages and experience levels.

I have a Bachelors in Music Education with a K-12 certification in Vocal Education, as well as a Masters in Performance. I have a strong musical background, having sung in the Texas All - State Choir, University Interscholastic League, and National Association of Teachers of Singing.

When I am not teaching, I actively perform in the Greater Bay Area, singing jazz, choral music, and opera.

Experienced teacher of 10 years. All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Let's get started!

About Xiao
I am a professional singer, pianist, songwriter. I graduated from Manhattan School of Music, specifically voice.

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano for 20 years. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any music and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you t
o become a better musician!

Learn how the pros do it!

If you want to learn pop, I'll teach you the same techniques used by Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera, Bon Jovi, Mick Jagger, and more... because I study with their teacher!

If you want to learn Opera, learn to tackle any audition, gig, or recording session just like Marilyn Horne did. I've got exercises from teachers at the Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, and from Marilyn Horne herself to get you right on top of your game!

I've been singing professionally for 16 years. I've sung my own show at Carnegie Hall. I was Gaston in the national tour of Beauty and the Beast and I never missed one of our 326 shows. I can get you on the Gaston regimen in as little as one lesson.

Please message me with your availability and describe your goals before you purchase a lesson.

About Christiaan
Christiaan is a multi-talented performer in theater, opera, and pop music. He played Gaston in the Broadway tour of Beauty and the Beast. Something of a bad boy, he was kicked out of Opera School for singing jazz, yet he went on to earn three music degrees, and work with opera legend Marilyn Horne and avant-garde composer Jake Heggie. Now he's in New York studying with Lady Gaga's teacher and singing his own arrangements of Ed Sheeran, Maroon 5, and John Mayer at Carnegie Hall while writing and recording pop songs in Nashville and the U.K. Look for his new single That's When You Know.

Christiaan enjoys seeing people succeed, so his approach to teaching is a combination of play and practice. Ultimately we sing because we want to bring people joy, yet to do so, we must hone our talents to perfection. By mixing the joy of music with disci
pline, we achieve our greatest dreams.

Over 6 years of teaching experience, and a Master's Degree in Vocal Performance! I have taught all ages and experience levels and specialize in teaching young children how to sing in a vocally healthy way. I customize lesson plans to achieve your goals and have a 5-step training system which includes work on breath support, ear-training, healthy vocal technique, and repertoire of either your choice or my recommendation.

I am classically trained and have performed under the baton of world renowned conductor Lorin Maazel, and have attended the prestigious Aspen Opera Theatre as a Fellowship Opera Coach. However, this does not mean I only teach opera! In fact, most of my students are too young for opera or are more interested in musical theatre. I bring my knowledge of vocal health and healthy ways of singing, such as mixed voice, placement, and release of bad tension in addition to good breath support to ALL genres. No matter what genre you like to sing, healthy singing will ...

About Sophia
I am a professional opera coach and have subbed as a coach at the Kansas City Lyric Opera House. I have my Master's in Vocal Performance from the Conservatory at UMKC, and my Bachelor's of Music from Luther College. I have performed under the baton of Maestro Lorin Maazel and sung on stage with The Rolling Stones and Barry Manilow in addition to serving on faculty at summer opera programs after my fellowship as an opera coach at Aspen Opera Theatre.

Voice students can expect to improve their tone from week to week by learning healthy vocal technique. I have taught all ages and skill levels, and specialize in teaching younger children to sing in a vocally healthy way. Students learn about releasing tension, good breath support, placement, head/chest voice and mix, as well as solfege and ear training.

I have also been playing pi
ano for over 20 years and did competitive piano as a child, and won statewide and midwest regional competitions. Because of my piano background, I can record helpful tracks for each student, such as warm up tracks, as well as practice tracks.

My passion is teaching kids to sing in a vocally healthy way by building on basic foundational techniques such as good posture, good breath support, ear training and release of tension. As a child, I was told often that singers were born, not taught, and I am here to tell you that I learned how to sing well during my college and grad school years, and was not a "born" singer! I learned so much about healthy singing in school that I wish I had known when I was younger, so my personal goal is to install good vocally healthy habits in all of my students.

I have been teaching voice lessons for 12 years and have a master's degree in vocal pedagogy. I tailor lessons and song selections to your goals and needs as a singer. I place high emphasis on healthy vocal production, whether you belt musical theater, sing opera, or wail on rock ballades. With me, you will find efficient use of your body as your instrument, while learning to express your interpretation of your music. Message me to see if we might be a good fit!

About Amanda
I am a professional singer who graduated with a master's in Vocal Pedagogy from the Boston Conservatory and a bachelor's in Vocal Performance from George Mason. My passion lies in teaching singers to use their voice with the greatest efficiency and artistry possible. I place heavy emphasis on technique and help students set manageable goals for their progress.

I am trained a classical soprano and contemporary musical theater singer. In my early training, I sang mostly church music as well as musical theater, but fell in love with opera and classical singing at George Mason. I have performed in numerous operas, including the title role of Hänsel in Humperdink’s Hänsel and Gretel and First Lady in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte. I also performed in musical theater reviews and jazz ensembles at Mason. I enjoyed the opportunity to perform abroad
and choreographed for a production of La Traviata in Italy for the La Musica Lirica Summer Program. I currently sing in a small, early music ensemble run out of St. Benedict's Church in Richmond, VA.

Though she enjoys performing, I am a teacher at heart. I have been giving private voice lessons for years and have taught for such schools as the Potomac Arts Academy in Fairfax, Virginia and the Boston Arts Academy in Boston, Massachusetts. I was also the vocal coach for Boston City Singers’ Cantare Singers, a group of students between the ages of ten and fourteen. I enjoy working with singers of all ages and interests. I'm excited to meet you to begin your vocal journey!

I cater my voice lessons to the type of music the student enjoys singing. I teach the classical techniques and provide vocal exercises that help the student learn proper technique for breathing and focus. The classical "basics" can be applied to any type of music. So I can help a student with any style of music as long as they learn the basics first. I want lessons to be fund and enjoyable, but I do have an annual recital which provides an opportunity for my students to perform in front of the other students to gain a great experience. For my students who wish to pursue a musical career, I have access to festivals where they can compete for that experience.

About Lora
Music has been part of my family for generations! I LOVE music! I have specialized in voice and piano lessons for many years off and on. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education, with a focus on piano and voice. I enjoy catering my lessons to the student's interest. I want them to enjoy coming to lessons and enjoy learning! It is very important that all of my students learn the "basics". However, we can still learn songs that they want to learn, while also learning songs with specific technique involved. Come see what music is all about! My hope is that I can show you just how fun music can be! I believe that you can learn music if you want to and that you are NEVER too old to learn!
