Learn to Sing from Anywhere!


For those who live too far away to come into the studio, for those emergency moments before a performance, and your busy schedule, we now offer the same quality voice lessons via Skype!


Online lessons are a very good option for those looking for a modern approach the studying music. Though not entirely as effective as in-studio lessons, they are still very valuable and students achieve a high rate of success in all genres. Students may mix online and in-studio lessons if requested.


Each student's voice is different and lessons are tailored to each student's needs; the uniqueness of every voice requires patience and individual attention. Healthy, relaxed technique is emphasized to preserve the voice and unlock the true quality of the voice. Emphasis on proper support and placement on every vowel and through each consonant to promote vocal power and clarity.  Just like no two students are the same, no two voices are either. A wide range of repertoire, including opera, lieder, oratorio, and classic music theatre in all voice types. Voice lessons are available for all genres and levels via Skype or in-studio.
