We spend a portion of time on technique, and a portion of time integrating that technique into songs. How much of either depends on your experience level and your goals. Beginners make the best progress with recurring, weekly lessons, while more experienced singers may require less supervision. In either case, you will get the most out of your investment with consistent practice. Not much is necessary; a five minute, daily technical practice session is usually sufficient to progress.
I focus on creating a solid technical foundation with adult beginners and children/adolescents.
Classical and musical theatre singers of all experience levels are welcome. My students have sung with Pocket Opera, Lamplighter’s Musical Theatre, San Francisco Symphony Chorus, and more.
Often used interchangeably with voice lessons, in my studio there is a distinction between the two. Whereas voice lessons target the technique of singing, vocal coaching focuses on the artistry of interpreting songs. Some vocal coaching will be inherent in your voice lessons. If your primary objective is to receive vocal coaching in preparation for an audition or performance, it is important that you provide your own accompanist, karaoke/backing track, or lead sheet style sheet music.
If you are suffering or recovering from vocal damage, my heart goes out to you. The good news is that damage can often be healed. To proceed safely and effectively, I recommend getting laryngoscopy by a qualified otolaryngologist and evaluation from a speech language pathologist before commencing voice rehabilitation.
Online lessons occur via Zoom. Beginners need no extra equipment, however an external USB microphone is helpful. Advanced/professional singers may benefit from an external audio interface and omnidirectional microphone.
You may either subscribe to weekly lessons which recur on the same day and time, or schedule-as-you-go with drop-in lessons or discount packages. Please see the table below for a breakdown and links to my online scheduling platform.
