By Mariana P. - DC Voice Teacher
When Washington, DC is mentioned, most people immediately think of politics. Great opportunities for singers or singing lessons in Washington, DC would not be the first thought on someone’s mind. As serious as it may seem, the Washington, DC area has an eclectic mix of singing venues for all performance levels and music genres. The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts houses the Washington National Opera and also offers free concerts every day at 6:00 pm on their Millennium Stage where any musical group can perform after an audition. DC is also home to many small theater companies which hold open auditions for anyone interested; musical theater, show choirs and jazz bands are among the most prominent genres.
There are plenty of venues where students taking singing lessons in Washington, DC can cultivate their skills. If Rock ‘n Roll is your trade, the U Street corridor hosts many rock spots such as The Black Cat, Velvet Lounge and of course, the U Street Music Lounge. For those who prefer smaller spaces with open mic opportunities, Busboys and Poets in Arlington, VA and Jammin’ Java in Vienna, VA should not be missed. Let’s not forget those who sing just for personal enjoyment. If you ever want to experience the thrill of being on stage, karaoke is the way to go. Café Japone is a local favorite as well as Peyote Café in Adams Morgan. Little Miss Whiskey’s Golden Dollar takes the karaoke experience to another level, allowing its patrons to come in costume or providing them for those who come unprepared. Now that you know where to go to build on the skills you are already learning from your singing lessons in Washington, DC, what are you waiting for? Get out there and sing!

There are many dimensions that have to be attended to while singing properly and we must simplify these aspects in order to focus on our true intent, to express ourselves.
It is my goal to not lose sight of this and to stay true to a student's unique instrument as well in the process.
Technique only further enhances one's ability to carry out artistic expression. It is my intention to provide the tools necessary for students to become effective and expressive communicators.
I specialize in the intonation of the voice and how to produce achievable colors within one's range. This is why I am capable of teaching an array of styles.
I am an enthusiastic, funny, adaptive yet demanding teacher. In each lesson, I adapt my teaching method according to the special requests and levels of my students, as well as their expectations and the daily conditions. I usually work with my students to decide together which is the best repertory for his/her voice and plan together the learning program. I will create an stress-free and trust environment to help my study progress in his/her work.
