My private voice studio currently consists of approximately 30 singers -- of all levels and styles, with opera and/or musical theater predominating. They are presented In Recital twice a year, in varying locales around Southern California.
My teaching focuses primarily on breath support / body involvement, resonance, and musical phrasing. With great attention to diction -- including not only crisp English, but also French, German, Spanish, and Italian -- appropriate repertoire, and involved presentation, I strive to find the unique things each singer brings to performing and meld those with a solid foundation built of technique. I believe that singing is a very natural business, and that the body (a wind instrument!) is built to sing.
I am currently accepting a few new students on a very limited basis (as time permits) on Mondays & Tuesdays. At present, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, & Sundays are completely filled, with a Saturday waiting list. (I do not teach on Fridays.) I do not accept students under the age of 14.
Current fee is $60 for an hour lesson. Approximately 20 -25 minutes is spent on vocalises and breathing exercises, with the remainder used on repertoire.
