What happens in a typical voice lesson?
In the same way that all athletes warm up before training or competing, it is important for all singers to warm up the voice and body. I will lead you through science-based warm ups that will promote a healthy and long lasting voice. Together we will then move on to technical exercises designed to help you build a foundation from which you will be able to sing a variety of repertoire, before working on music. I encourage my students to work on music that will challenge and excite them, and while I have a strong background in classical voice and opera, I am happy to work across a range of styles.
For younger singers and those less confident in their music reading ability, I incorporate sight-singing and other musicianship activities into the lesson.
Elder Conservatorium of Music Open Music Academy
With lessons held in person at the Elder Conservatorium, this is a fantastic way to get quality music education from one of the oldest and best music institutions in the country. Lessons through the Open Music Academy include several performance, ensemble and workshop opportunities which help students grow as musicians throughout the year. This lesson option is particularly recommended for high school students and those interested in pursuing music at University.
