Private Voice Lessons
Singing is a whole body & mind activity. I believe that in order to sing at our highest level, we must address all aspects of our instrument, which includes not only our voices, but our physical, energetic, and psychological state. It is impossible to train the voice separate from the whole, and with improved functioning of each area, voices flourish and expand.
Private voice lessons are a commitment to yourself and your goals. When you invest in yourself and your singing, other areas of your life improve symbiotically in response to the awareness you gain. As your technique and performance improve, possibilities expand for your life and career. I truly believe that by changing your voice, you can change your life!
As your vocal guide, I will support you on your path to mastery by helping you build and grow necessary technical skills. I will help you remove old technical habits and thought processes that can block your progress. Often, I will guide you away from your comfort zone and challenge your beliefs about your own voice. This may involve making sounds that are "ugly" or difficult. It takes this kind of work to retrain the body's habitual patterns. I ask for an open mind and commitment to process.
I primarily work with young artist, advanced, and professional singers. From opera/classical to musical theater to commercial music, my clients benefit from a solid understanding of the technical foundations required for optimal performance
If this resonates with you, I would love to have a discussion to see how we might work together on your vocal journey!
What to Expect
In our work together, we will strengthen and create flexibility in areas of the voice that need improvement. Vocal registration, breathing/support, vowel formation, postural alignment, and dynamic control are the major focus of the technical work. My teaching is deeply rooted in the Bel Canto technique, with special attention to function of the vocal mechanism, balanced phonation and breath pressure, and proper posture/movement of the face, articulators, and body in order to maximize vocal efficiency. I believe in constant education as a teacher, and am always seeking ways to add value to my students.
Voice lessons take place online using Skype/Zoom.
Online voice lessons work exactly the same as studio lessons. No special equipment is needed besides a computer, iPad, or tablet and a good internet connection.
