I am an active performing singer who has been teaching for over 7 years. Whether you are a beginner just starting out or an experienced singer, I can help you to achieve your goals! I have my Masters of Music in Voice Performance and have sung professionally all over the country. I believe lessons should be tailored to each student, since every person has different goals and experience. Whether you need more technique or just to polish some old repertoire, I can help!

About Clarice
Here's a little information about me and my teaching!

1) My experience as a teacher: I have been teaching both privately and at music schools for over 7 years. I have experience teaching private voice lessons and music therapy.

2) My experience as a performer: I currently sing and perform in the Seattle area. I recently moved from Chicago where I had a very active career singing. I know how to prepare you for auditions and performances because I myself am performing and auditioning.

3) My students: I've taught many different students, from beginners to advanced singers, children to adults. Whether you just want to learn how to sing your favorite song, or you are preparing for professional auditions, I can help!

4) I think singing takes hard work, but it's also important to have fun!

It is my goal to help every on
e of my students:

1) develop a healthy singing technique that will bring longevity to your career or hobby.

2) learn music efficiently and independently.

3) develop good practice habits.

4) learn basic ear training/sight singing.

EXPERIENCE AND TRAINING
I've been studying voice for 12 years and teaching for the past 7. I received my Masters of Music degree in voice performance from the Chicago College of Performing Arts and my B.M. from UCF. Since graduating in 2013, I have sung with throughout the Chicago area and recently moved to Seattle. Some performance highlights include but are not limited to performing with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Chicago Sinfonietta, and in CCPA's production of the Chicago Premier of Daron Hagen's Amelia, and performing with the Grant Park Chorus.

I look forward to working with you!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide books. I expect my student to provide a piano.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in operatic singing. I received my training in opera; however, I also have training and performance experience in musical theater. I believe I am well equipped in several genres.

I am happy to take students ranging from the "pitch challenged" to those working on professional recordings.

About Carla
Why Choose Carla:

• Work on your singing in a warm, friendly and private studio with an experienced teacher that makes singing fun! Students of all ages are always welcome!

• Member of the National Association For Teachers of Singing (the only selective professional organization for Voice Teachers) whose mission is: To encourage the highest standards of the vocal art and of ethical principles in the teaching of singing; and to promote vocal education and research at all levels, both for the enrichment of the general public and for the professional advancement of the talented.

• Voice students learn more then just how to sing, they learn how to be performers and musicians.

• I will not take on a student I cannot help.

• Voice students have MANY performance opportunities offered to them that are appropriate for their level
.

My unique studio uses the basics of Bel Canto technique to teach all styles of music to all ages. Parents often comment on how much fun their students have in lessons, while getting feedback from outside professionals (adjudicators, directors, etc) on how much their technique has improved. Adult students are commonly shocked by how easy singing can feel as they meet their career goals.

Current students can be seen performing with:
America's Got Talent!
Hardrock Cafe LAS VEGAS!
Broadway Bound
Bellevue Opera
Puget Sound Concert Opera
Seattle Gilbert and Sullivan
5th Avenue Theater
Theater Schmeater
13 Coins
Hwy 99 Blues Club
The Showbox
Chop Suey
Dicken's Carolers
And MORE!

I realize that voice lessons can be REALLY scary and I totally understand why, especially for kids and beginners! I do my best to use modern psycology and technology to help my beginning students feel confortable in what can be a frightening new endeavor.

Personal Performance Experience: Extensive lead and supporting opera performing experience with Bellevue Opera, Puget Sound Concert Opera, Skagit Opera, Tacoma Opera, Portland Opera,Seattle Gilbert and Sullivan, Seattle Opera and Seattle Youth Symphony. Prior to that spent 7 years performing Jazz and Gospel and 10 years in musical theater.

Personal Education: BA in Music from Seattle Pacific University 2002, MM in Opera Performance (Unfinished due to 1 year of German) at University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana.

Teaching Experience: 8 years as a private voice teacher in my own studio, 3.5 years teaching opera workshops throughout the USA, 2 years working in studio with local bands as a 'fixer.'

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Have you tried lessons before and felt unsuccessful?

Not all students learn the same way and for years voice teachers have been treating every student as an aural learner. What I have found is that students with a history of struggling with matching pitch simply need to be taught in a different manner. That is why I now ask students to take a voluntary learning style inventory prior to their first lesson.

Visual Learner? Not a problem when "Adam" started with me he could only match pitch 30% of the time. But after finding that he needed to see concepts in order to learn them I have now made all of his lesson visually based and he is now averaging 90% pitch accuracy 3 months later.

Kinisthetic Learner? I had the hardest time helping "Clark" learn new music until we realized that by taking the time to have him play his parts himself on the piano he could learn them in minutes. He just is a person that learns by doing and now that we know that, music has become so much less frustrating for him.

Physical Learner? With "Steve" the traditional 'visualization' style of teaching that most voice teachers start with just wasn't helping him improve his sound and reach the high notes we both knew he had. After we figured out that he needed large muscle movements to understand concepts I added the use of a resistance band to his lessons. He has had so much success with this technique that he 'stole' my resistance band so he could use it in recording sessions and before he got on stage.

The stories just go on and on.

CURRENT AND FORMER STUDENT REFERENCES AVAILABLE!

*** Lesson Details ***
Students help structure their lessons by providing a general overview of their goals during their first lesson. Just as not everyone's voice sounds the same, neither does everyone's lesson!

A typical lesson begins with vocal warm-ups specifically targeted to strengthen the students technique and help them learn more about their voices capabilities. Next students work on songs of their choosing, that help them develop the freedom of voice, control, stamina and overall vocal health that they will need to be confident in their performing.

Additional opportunities for performance are provided for students as desired. These may include Karaoke Nights (for adult beginners), no-stress recitals, studio sing-a-longs, community choirs and small roles in local productions.

NEW STUDIO FEATURE!

*** Studio ***

*** Specialties ***
Voice, Music Theory, Music Performance, Acting, Speech, Theatrical Broadway Singing, Opera Voice

Specializing in helping young singers find their voices and learn healthy technique so as to not damage their instrument, while having a lot of fun! I also teach Spanish, Latin and Italian Diction for Singers.

I have worked with many local guitar/singer/songwriters and rock band frontmen, helping them gain the stamina and power they need while maintaining their instrument for the future.

Also, I have had extensive experience and success working with students who consider themselves 'tone challenged'

About Brianna
I believe that music and theatre can open many more doors than performance, especially with children who struggle with the social aspects of daily life, as well as overall confidence. I have personally seen the effect teaching music and theatre to children with autism and speech impediments, and it has quickly become one of my greatest joys to see them grow! My goal is to create a safe, educational, and fun environment where children and adults alike can see their skills and confidence grow.
I have a strong background in musical and straight theatre, having taught and assisted/directed children's theatre. For the past fifteen years, I have performed in the following genres: Music theatre, theatre, Opera, film, monologue competitions, solo competitions, and abroad performances. I require that all music students become proficient in ear
training and basic theory. Resume available upon request

Morgan is the best singing teacher I've ever had! She is kind, patient, understanding, and she cares a lot about vocal health. Morgan has helped me grow immensely in just a few months. My range has improved and my break is much better than it used to be. I used to have no high range at all and now I can touch a high E flat! I can't recommend her highly enough!

Lake Stevens, WA

I've been teaching voice since 2012, and I've studied voice for over 10 years. I have primarily been trained in the Italian school of singing, which emphasizes healthy, individualized singing voices over attaining a specific "sound." My goal is to help you sing the best way that you can, not to turn you into a copy of any one singer! Breathing, posture, diction, expression, and technique are all elements of singing we will work on together.

About Tia
Tia graduated from Dordt College in 2014 with a BA in Music Performance and Pedagogy. An avid vocalist and single-reed woodwind player, she has been studying music for over 15 years with a variety of teachers, and has experience in the Jazz, Musical Theatre, Praise, and Classical styles. Tia has done well at state-level competitions and honor bands/choirs for both single-reeds and voice from middle school through college, whether for NATS or WMEA. Each lesson is tailored to the individual student's goals and needs, and each lesson combines both physical technique and imaginative style/performance to create a balanced musician with a deep understanding and love for the art form.

Every singer should know how their instrument works. I will teach you how your voice works and how to sing in a healthy way. Feel good, sound good!

Also, singing isn't magic, and the world isn't divided into people who can sing and people who can't. Singing is a skill that anyone can improve, and I can teach you tools and habits that will help you get better.

I studied voice and voice teaching + anatomy at the University of Washington and I've been teaching voice for over two years. Let me help you sing better every day!

About Aryn
Music makes me happy and teaching makes me happy. As a teacher I am focused and energetic. Even though voice lessons are to performing as the gym is to the playing field, I find them fun and I hope you will too.

I have a bachelor's degree in voice from the University of Washington. I studied the art and science of voice, from anatomy to phonetics to technique to emotional connection with the music. This means that I can help address many different needs and questions for each unique singer.

I've taught students of all experience levels and all ages, from 7 to 83. I would love for you to be my next student!

I don't believe anyone is really tone deaf and I'm more than happy to teach anyone from people who just want to learn how to sing for fun to people prepping for college auditions to people who are seasoned performers and want to take their skills to the next level.

My name is Megan and I've been singing for 20 years, performing for 17 years and took piano and vocal instruction for several years. All of this has prepped me with the skills and experience to show others how to really sing and perform like a pro.

I have been teaching ages 10 years to 60 years old and have performed several genres and instructed others on these genres including musical theater, jazz, pop, punk, rock, soul and classical. I have been singing choirs and vocal jazz groups for 18 years, am the lead singer of a pop punk band, and perform jazz and pop all over the greater Seattle area and have done choral ensemble work as well.

I am super confident that no matter where you're at musically or what style

About Megan
There's a couple things I'm really good at and that's helping people find their UNIQUE voice and how to break out of their comfort zones and take their performing and singing to the next level. Singing WELL is about so much more than technique. While I teach technique and all the basics, the really fun part is discovering what you're made of and what your unique voice can do. Together we can discover what it means to not just sound good, but to WOW people and more importantly, wow yourself.

I have spent my entire life figuring out how to sing with passion, with real emotion and rawness, how to write songs that paint a picture, how to go beyond my self limiting beliefs and reach goals I never thought I could. And in so discovering how to do this for myself I now teach others how to do it too.

If you're ready to go from good to great, o
r even if you're ready to just start for the first time I got you. You're capable of so much more than you think.

Megan has been patiently working with me, a true beginner. I have progressed from barely knowing how to sing on pitch to singing on pitch (mostly.. still working on doing it within songs) within months. She does the right amount of technique exercises along with singing songs to get you to have proper form to get those notes out correctly. You will not be disappointed.

Beginner/intermediate voice lessons for people of all ages. Singing/music is mostly about having fun and learning more about oneself! Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Whether you want to learn healthy vocal technique or just want to sing, I am here to help you along the way!

A little about me: I recently graduated from the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University with a Bachelors of Music in Voice Performance where I studied with internationally renowned mezzo-soprano, Denyce Graves. I specialize in classical voice but am open to teaching various types of music!

About Tammi
Singing, like any other art form, is an expression of self. In order to better express oneself, vocal technique can only help to convey one's message and ideas!

It's never too late or too early to learn to sing! I have taught children as young as 8 to adults in their 70s. My top priority is to help people simply enjoy the act of singing. To sing means to put oneself in a very exposed and vulnerable position. As one learns to utilize their voice better, their confidence and self-esteem will build as well. We can start with very simple basics such as learning to read music to more advanced ideas such as breath control and resonance.

Despite my specialization in classical voice/opera, I am very open to teaching various other kinds of vocal music including, but not limited to, pop and Broadway.

I am a classical singer with a Bachelo
r in Music in Voice Performance from the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University. There, I was awarded the Rosa Ponselle Scholarship in voice and was a student of internationally renowned mezzo-soprano, Denyce Graves, and highly sought after voice technician, Peggy Baroody. I will be pursuing a Masters of Music in the fall at Bard College Conservatory.

As a Seattle native, I was a member of Jubilate! Young Women’s Ensemble at St. James Cathedral, as well as a student at Seattle Conservatory of Music.
