Sean has been FANTASTIC with my 9 y.o. son. I was skeptical about how well online lessons would work for a complete beginner. This clearly isn’t Sean’s first rodeo. He has an excellent system for teaching online by sending annotated music beforehand. I must admit I had to push my son a little to get him to agree to piano lessons. Now he loves playing. He practices everyday on his own without being told and loves to ask me to record videos of him playing to send to his grandparents. I’m so proud of him and so grateful to Sean.

Our first session with Sean went very well. My kids are looking forward to the next session!

Pamela is great, very professional and welcoming. This was my daughter's first voice lesson ever and she was super excited when it was over. Looking forward to the next lesson. Highly recommended.
Kristian
I have had a vocal coach before meeting Pam, but she absolutely took it to another level. Pamela does a good job with teaching the mechanics of singing, as she pin points which muscles the body is using and how to use them properly when singing. She has a variety of warm ups and stretches to get your voice and body prepared to perform and is very good and pushing you to become your best. If you are a serious singer and would like to take the knowledge of your craft a step further, I would definitely recommend.

I am a classically trained singer, and I prioritize health above all else when teaching voice. As a soloist, I work with students to improve their abilities to sing confidently and technically efficient by themselves. I teach everything from standard operatic repertoire, musical theater (helping them get roles like Cinderella from "Into the Woods" and Gabriella from "High School Musical"), popular music, and much more. I love learning from my students and their interests.

Always enjoy voice lessons with Madeline! She works with you to help you learn at your own pace and is genuinely interested in what inspires you musically.

When lessons shifted from in-person to online due to COVID restrictions, Madeline helped to make the transition easy.
Brita
My daughter has taken lessons with Madeline through her school this past year and asked if she could continue with private lessons - we said an enthusiastic yes! The progress she has made in the last year is incredible and she has so much fun. Our son recently started lessons as well and we couldn't be more pleased. Madeline is a pleasure to work with and our children look forward to their weekly lessons. I highly recommend her.
Caroline
Madeline Huss is a delightful voice teacher. I enjoy every lesson. She is rigorous and knows what a student needs to improve. She gives good positive feedback and adjusts to her students needs and abilities.

"I've been studying with Mary Elizabeth since August and have seen a serious improvement in my voice! Her lessons are fun and engaging and I have been able to build my repertoire. I feel much more comfortable in an audition setting because of the variety of things I have learned. I've been practicing various types of music like classical/contemporary musical theatre and I have a stronger understanding of the music in general! I would highly recommend taking lessons with her."

"Kelly is an amazing teacher, musician, and singer! She has great energy and a positive attitude. It's impossible not to smile when you're around her. I came to her to finally learn how to sing. In the first lesson she identified two bad singing habits that I've been doing for years. I've improved tremendously since then and I owe it all to her! Lately we've been working on music theory and song writing. I'm very happy with her as my teacher!"

What Does Mixed Voice Singing Mean?

When we think about singers we enjoy listening to, we tend to think of their voices as effortless, and that their sound is powerful and consistent throughout the entirety of their range. However, when the average, untrained person attempts to sing, they may have difficulty emulating the level of ease in register transitions that professional singers achieve. Expanding vocal range takes time and training, and a more in-depth understanding of the physical workings of the voice. Many voice teac …
