I believe that everyone can sing! I'm passionate about helping young singers develop their voices and their confidence. My voice lessons are designed to be fun and engaging, and I tailor each lesson to the individual student's needs and goals.
In our lessons, we focus on:
Establishing a solid vocal foundation: This includes teaching students about proper breathing, posture, and vocal technique.
Exploring varied approaches to vocal music: We sing a variety of songs, from different genres and time periods. We also explore different performance styles and stage presence.
Using imagery to connect the voice and body: I believe that when singers are connected to their bodies, they are able to sing more freely and expressively. We use imagery to help students develop this connection.
Empowering students to be themselves: I want my students to feel comfortable and confident in their singing. I create a supportive and inclusive learning environment where students feel free to be themselves.
In addition to working on repertoire, I also encourage students to pursue their own individual projects. This could involve creating an online musical presentation, giving a lecture-recital, or simply performing for friends and family. I believe that these projects are a great way for young singers to highlight their talents and share their love of music.
If you are looking for a singing teacher who will help your child develop their voice, their confidence, and their love of music, I encourage you to contact me. I would be happy to discuss your child's individual needs and goals.
Here are some specific examples of how I tailor my lessons to young singers:
Using games and activities to make learning fun and engaging.
Choosing songs with student input making sure that they are appropriate for the student's age and voice.
Providing positive feedback and encouragement.
Creating a safe and supportive learning environment where students feel comfortable asking questions and making mistakes.
Working with parents to ensure that the student is getting the most out of their lessons.
