My philosophy of teaching vocal singing is much different than most of my contemporaries. The prevailing thought is to teach only classical style of voice and students can get other genres on their own. I have to admit that I used to buy into this philosophy when I was working on my degrees and first started teaching. The more that I got into the masses and worked with students this philosophy no longer fit my students. I wanted to meet my students where they were in their everyday lives and help them create music that they not only love but is relevant for today.
I still believe that classical singing is the foundation for good singing, but I teach it differently. Being a student driven studio, I assess each student’s voice, their needs and goals as a singer. A plan is then tailored to each individual student to help them attain their goals. Whether their goal is to audition for scholarships for college, sing in competitions, pursue a performing career, write music, musical theater, or learning to sing for the love of singing I do what is needed to help them fulfill their dream.
Singing is the foundation of my studio, but there is so much more that is offered. I am a vocal producer and have been in the studio with many students helping record demos and EP’s. Several students are singer/songwriters and I help them with writing songs, copyrighting, demo work, and possible publisher presentations. Artist development is another area that is offered on an audition basis which takes a larger commitment from students who are very serious about a commercial music career. I get students ready for college auditions for scholarships and acceptance into music schools. Teach music theory to prepare students for tests for acceptance into music schools. Work stage performing, mic techniques, nerve control on stage, and speaking to an audience. This is not an complete list of everything, but gives a good idea of how each student’s plan is individualized to their
