Healthy and age appropriate teaching of classical technique

About Serena
Hello! My name is Serena!

Music shapes my life and has made me the person I am today. My experience in training in opera, musical theatre, jazz, and pop has expanded my musical skills and knowledge. Not only have I been trained in performance, but I have also studied music history, music theory, conducting, movement training, ballet, Alexander Technique, acting, yoga, stage craft, improvisation, other languages, diction and the International Phonetic Alphabet, voice science and anatomy, and vocal pedagogy. I have completed my Bachelor of Music in Operatic Vocal Performance from the prestigious Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University under the tutelage of the legendary Carol Vaness. I have also studied with acclaimed teachers and coaches around the world including Dr. Kari Ragan and Maestro Dean Williamson.

This year has been w
onderfully packed with performance for Seattle Opera. I just closed out a 78 performance run of CINDERELLA IN SPAIN where I sang the role of CINDERELLA and was even on the poster! I also performed the roles for the Seattle Opera preview performances of GRETEL in HANSEL UND GRETEL, VIOLETTA in LA TRAVIATA, KATYA in KATYA KABANOVA, and QUEEN OF THE NIGHT in MAGIC FLUTE. I made my Seattle Opera debut singing ALITSA and RACCOON in their touring production of "OUR EARTH", as well as performing on the mainstage in many productions. My upcoming performances include singing in the Seattle Opera kick off to the season SUMMERFEST in July; and OLYMPIA in LES CONTES D'HOFFMANN with Pacific Northwest Opera. My other roles include ALKANDRE in PENELOPE with Vespertine Opera in Seattle, WA; FRASQUITA in CARMEN with OperaBend in Bend, Oregon and Pacific Northwest Opera; and SUSANNA in LE NOZZE DI FIGARO with the Seattle Opera Guild. I also made my international debut in December 2014 singing GRETEL in HANSEL UND GRETEL with Opera Mariposa in Vancouver, BC. I have also been the featured soloist as "Christine" in Ten Grand's Phantom of the Opera at Benaroya Hall in Seattle, WA, and many lead roles in both opera and musical theatre: such as Semele (Semele), Marie (La Fille du Regiment), Gretel (Hansel und Gretel), Countess Ceprano and Gilda (Rigoletto), Blondchen (Die Entfuehrung aus dem Serail), Maria (West Side Story), La Fee (Cendrillon), Sarah Brown (Guys and Dolls), Cathy (The Last 5 Years), Rosina (Barber of Seville), and more! I have also been part of jazz ensembles, and won the Battle of the Bands at Indiana University with a rock group! I am proud to have won the Seattle Opera Guild/Opera Plus Young Artist Scholarship Award for the 2015/2016 season, the Encouragement Award in the Metropolitan Opera National Council District Auditions, First Place in the National Classical Singers Competition, the C.M. Gerber Scholarship, Music Dean's Scholarship, Music Faculty Award, First Place at Washington State Solo and Ensemble Competitions, First Place in the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) National Competitions, and many more!

Teaching brings me such joy! To share the love of music and to educate the musicians of tomorrow is both gratifying and inspiring. I have been teaching since 2005 and provide a fun and focused learning experience where there are no "wrong" questions, and everybody's unique voice is celebrated! Many of my students have gone on to study music in college, and have landed lead roles in musical theatre, choir solos, All State and All Northwest choirs, and won awards in Classical competitions.

In my spare time, I like to hike, eat good food, and spend time with family and friends!

*** Lesson Details ***
My studio provides musical knowledge through private lessons including healthy vocal technique, basic understanding of music theory, and basic piano skills. I encourage a fun and focused environment. Come ready to learn, and let's make music!

A typical lesson will include vocalises that detail proper technique, some ear training work, some music theory training, and will be followed by repertoire. During this time, students will learn how to produce clear and authentic diction (English and other languages), breath management, phrase shaping, smooth transitions between higher and lower pitches, stylistic ornamentation, as well as dramatic involvement of the piece.

Students will learn the importance of the foundations of breath support, and how to create a healthy sound for any genre while keeping the unique qualities of their own voice-- no cookie-cutter singers here! Students will also learn how to read music, practice effectively, perform authentically, and take care of their delicate instrument for a lifetime of singing!

While Skype is a marvelous tool that has revolutionized the world of teaching, nothing can replicate natural acoustics. In-studio lessons are suggested for a clearer and more personable lesson.
**Skype lessons are reserved for long distance students only**

STUDIO ABSENCE and CANCELLATION POLICIES:
Regularly scheduled and attended lessons are the best way to see positive changes in your voice! The smooth running of the Studio Schedule helps make that happen. Therefore, missing lessons is discouraged and make up lessons/cancellations are not given in the Studio unless:
- I have had a performance or rehearsal that conflicts with our lesson time and cannot have the lesson as scheduled. If this occurs, I will inform you of the event as soon as possible and give you the option of a make up lesson or cancelling the lesson.
- Notices of foreseen cancellations (family vacations, religious holidays, school functions, special occasions etc.) are eligible for rescheduling or cancellation if given before the first lesson of the month.
- Of course, life can throw us for a loop! Illness, emergencies, and unforeseen events may possibly be given make ups or cancellations and will be determined at the Studio's discretion. (In the matter of illness: standard procedure is that if the student can attend work/school, they should come to their lesson. A cold can easily be worked around. If the voice is affected (for singing students), Studio time can still be used to work on ear training, music theory, music history, etc.)

All other absences will result in the lesson being marked as "missed". A hard copy of the Studio Policies and further details will be given to the student at the first lesson. Please feel free to ask any questions or clarifications.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The studio lessons take place in a designated area of my home. The room includes seating for parents to observe lessons as well as a weighted keyboard (88 keys), music stand, desk, and materials. No pets. Lots of street parking is available. Shopping and coffee/food located within walking distance.

*** Specialties ***
Specialties: Classical/Opera
Other styles and genres: Musical Theatre, Jazz, Pop, and Rock.

Serena is excellent! She shares my interest in both vocal training and vocal pedagogy, so she can explain the physiology of what I'm doing wrong when that happens - frequently in my case. She is a delight to work with. Encouraging. Intelligent. Professional. I'm sad to have to drop lessons for now.

Serena is the best opera singing coach I’ve ever had. She focus on the science of how human body creates sound, and use her over decades experience to explain the technique in the way that is very easy to understand and get to. After 3 class, I am already feel a lot better at technique and get a better understanding of my voice. Unfortunately, it won’t work with my scheduled anymore. I look forward to getting back to taking classes with Serena soon!

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.

Mallory helped me with an audition, and it has turned into recurring lessons for over a year now. She is extremely organized, positive, and patient. She’s a multi-talented master of several crafts, and I’ve been so impressed. I’ve got a newfound strength in my voice, and I have landed more callbacks this year than the last three years combined. I also want to start Guitar, and I know she has a million happy students on that front too. If you’re in the Nashville area, pick her. Even if you’re not, she’s amazing online too!

I can assist students in using healthy vocal technique for any style of music. My goal is to make every lesson helpful, informative, and also fun!

About Greg
Hello! I am a vocal music teacher with over 15 years of experience in singing and performing.

I currently teach music at Seattle World School, where I focus on singing, vocal technique, and music theory.

I have studied and been trained in multiple genres, and I can assist students in using healthy vocal technique for any style of music. While much of my performing experience has been in Classical singing, I have also performed Pop music, and I have performed with multiple a cappella groups. Whether you're hoping to start your career in opera or just want to have another hobby in your life, I can help!

Greg's a very good teacher. At first I wasn't sure how all the vocal exercises and breathing that we were doing were fitting together, but by the 5th lesson, I could see my singing improve significantly. Greg has a lot of experience, but doesn't try to overwhelm you or do things that are unnecessary. He works on what he thinks you're capable doing, but also guides you past your comfort zone a little bit each lesson as well. Recommended.

Hey there!

I have been singing for 7 years now, and I love helping beginning singers--and any singers that want to review the basics--develop pitch, breathing, and resonance skills for freer, tension-free singing. As a new teacher with some recent experience, I offer a more affordable alternative for singers who are getting started. Whether you want to gain confidence for karaoke or expand your audition repertoire, I would love to help. I have experience with classical, jazz and musical theater. I have worked as section leader in multiple choirs, choir council, featured roles in multiple productions, and a one on one vocal coach.

I look forward to getting to know you and your voice!

About Hanna
I am a music minor at Emory University with eight years of vocal experience and one year of teaching experience. For students who are new to singing, the cost of voice lessons can be daunting. I believe that learning how to sing freely and confidently should be affordable.

My students have been accepted to the Atlanta Youth Chorus and Decalb School for the Arts. As for myself, I have been called back for and cast in many featured roles in musicals as community theaters as well as school-related theater. I participated in the IE Thespian Festival three times and was awarded a nationally-qualifying score twice in the Solo Musical category. I have also been involved in choir and vocal jazz for many years and was named Alto section leader at two separate schools. I received training from Jordan McClellan, a well-known opera and musical the
ater singer in Washington State. Currently, I am on the Exec board for my acapella group at Emory.

I focus on the basics for new students as well as intermediate ones: breath, resonance, and pitch. For students who are preparing for auditions, as someone who has been through about twenty auditions in the past few years, I can help with content, confidence, and the audition process in general.

I'm excited to hear from you, so reach out!

It doesn't matter if you've just started singing, or you have been singing for many years. You have come to the right place. I have a Bachelors Degree in Music Education and Voice. In the past, I have taught elementary general music as well as voice and piano lessons. I am looking to find new students in my area, as well as possibly teaching remotely.
I am an alto soloist at a local church, and a soprano in two semi-professional choirs. No matter what type of music you want to sing, the best gift I can give you is showing you how to use your voice in a healthy way. Over my twenty years of singing, I have learned how to care for my voice from some of the best vocal teachers and choir directors in my area. It is my goal to teach you the techniques that will allow you to achieve your own personal musical goals. Having good vocal technique will insure that you are able to sing for many years to come.

About Kathryn
I am a singer and pianist of many genres of music. I accompanied and sang in all of my high school's choirs. I went on to receive a Bachelor Degree in Music Education and Voice from the University of Akron. I have also completed the coursework for a Masters Degree in Choral Conducting. I am currently the alto soloist at a local church, as well as a soprano in two semi-professional choirs: Singers Companye and Crooked River Chorale. All three of these groups sing many styles of choral music from many different times periods, which I feel makes me an extremely adaptable singer. I was a part of The Cabaret Project that performed at Blu Jazz in Akron, Ohio in December of 2018, and plan on participating in that each time it happens.
My focus has really become healthy vocal technique, which is needed in all genres of music. Whether you want t
o be a professional musician or singing is just a hobby, good habits will allow you to sing for many years to come. I have learned so much from my amazing choir directors, that I want to share these things with my students so that they can be the best singers they can possibly be.

With each individual student, I have 4 objectives:
1. Learn what the student's musical goals are
2. Set tangible actions to obtain goals
3. Give real feedback and track progress
4. Create opportunities for student to dream bigger

About Brittany
I have been actively singing and performing since I was three years old and playing piano since I was 7. I graduated from Northwest University with a BA in Music in 2018. Most of my musical background began and remained in the church, playing and leading worship teams. I am now leading the worship teams for a church in Seattle and love getting to train and inspire others in their musical gifts.

My love for music blossomed from my passion for performing and creating. My whole life has been centered upon music... at home, at school, at work, at church, at my ballet studio, and more. My husband and I even met because of a band and a choir... just like a romantic movie! In our free time, we enjoy creating covers of songs together and playing in bands with one another.

I have experience in a variety of vocal genres including classical,
pop, choral, jazz, broadway, and recording. I was the biggest choir nerd you could meet in high school and college, spending my entire class day in and out of our choir room.

I began playing piano at 7 years old because I wanted to impress everyone during music class. I eventually fell in love with the instrument and prided myself on my ability to sight read music. My favorite form of piano is playing pop and worship music where you are given the freedom to create beautiful sounds out of very little written direction.

My passion in life is to see people come alive and create something beautiful. My love for music and desire to create is something I hope to spread to others. The moment you see someone play a tricky note sequence or sing something they never thought they could hit is the most rewarding feeling there is.
