Achieve your goals fast
We assess each student’s voice and design exercises for their specific goals, voice type, and genre. Lessons are custom designed for your needs.
Healthy belting: Many singers find maintaining a healthy technique while “belting” difficult. We help clients feel the difference between harmful and healthy belting. Our goal is to give you a healthy technique so that your instrument will last a lifetime. Helping students release tension makes singing much easier and much more fun.
“Mixed” voice: Going from your lowest note to your highest note seamlessly can be a big challenge for singers. We help singers blend registers to the point where the audience won’t hear your transition. This removes “breaks”, cracks, flips, and straining.
Range expansion: When a singer can’t get past their “breaks” they assume all higher notes are out of their range. By balancing their registers, our instructors drastically improve a singer’s range. Most students gain an octave or more.
Vocal Style: What makes you unique as a singer? We help singers identify their strengths to create a unique style that feels authentic to them. We want you to love the feeling you get when you sing and love your own personal style.
Your First Lesson
Introductory lessons include a discussion with your instructor about your personal goals, an assessment of your voice type, exercises to help you with your goals, song application, or anything else you’d like to go over.
The purpose is to hear from you where you are now and how far you want to go with your singing. Your instructor will then be able to create custom-made lesson plans to benefit your goals.
Introductory lessons are $60 for the hour. For those under the age of 12, half-hour introductory lessons are $30. Come see if our services are right for you with no further commitment required.
