Private Voice Lessons give students the opportunity to learn healthy vocal technique in a one-on-one setting.  Singers learn repertoire and songs that they are interested in and may want to perform or audition with.

 

Each lesson includes:

Scales and warm-ups - ways for singers to get to know their voice and their vocal range and to work on their technique

Repertoire - learning and working through details of songs that are interesting and helpful and enable the singer to shine

Performance - practicing a song to get it ready for performance or audition

 

Lessons can be recorded on CD, so singers can review and relisten to what they have worked on and learned and can hear "from the outside" what they need to work on and how minute changes can affect the vocal sound. The voice is complex and small adjustments can make an enourmous difference in sound and quality
