VOICE INSTRUCTION

Typically voice lessons are scheduled for at least once a week, for one hour.  During a vocal lesson, students of all ages focus on building a healthy vocal technique through various exercises, then apply this to music.  Many students are coached in preparation for auditions and performances in all genres of music.

Last spring one of my students performed the lead in “Oliver!” with Stapleton School of the Performing Arts in San Anselmo, Ca.  In previous years a number of my other students performed leading roles in various musicals in Marin County, including “Annie”.

Students are encouraged to begin studying piano simultaneously with voice. Many students split an hour lesson between piano and voice.
