Private Vocal Training 

 Students will learn singing technique including breathing, articulation, technique and choral basics. They will learn how to choose the right song, explore what the lyrics mean and how to communicate with an audience. A deeper connection to performing songs will result in having more confidence on stage and in auditions. Students will also learn guidelines for staying true to both the journey of the song and their journey as a performer.  In private lessons, students explore their singing voices as musical instruments and learn the proper technique, ensuring healthy singing habits and creating the best sound possible. Beginning singers work to strengthen the upper register. Students will be assigned songs both to improve their technique AND for their repertoire books for auditions. Singing lessons focus on coordinating muscle strength and agility in the throat and larynx (voice box), and learning breath support for your tone. Belters become more adept at using their mix and head voice registrations. “Legit” voices (classically trained singers) learn to use their mix voice with a more commercial belt/chest register production, working to engage the natural speaking mechanism.
