Voice Lessons Seminars Coaching
We are about the human voice. Each human voice remains, for the most part, physiologically the same but each person thinks different, feels different and understands their world different. Knowing this, the technique used is tailored to what works best for each vocalist. We believe in a classical foundation approach enabling the vocalist to healthily venture into their vocal style of choice. We currently offer instruction in the following areas: Private Instruction: one-on-one lessons to move you toward your vocal goals Performance Coaching: from first time performing to refining your performance experience Theory and Sight-reading: learn how to read music and understand the basics of harmonic structure Seminars and Master Classes: get a fresh perspective on your sound in front of a group or sharpen the sound of your ensemble
