We assess each student’s voice and design exercises for their specific goals, voice type, and genre. Lessons are custom designed for your needs.

Healthy belting: Many singers find maintaining a healthy technique while “belting” difficult. We help clients feel the difference between harmful and healthy belting. Our goal is to give you a healthy technique so that your instrument will last a lifetime. Helping students release tension makes singing much easier and much more fun.

“Mixed” voice: Going from your lowest note to your highest note seamlessly can be a big challenge for singers. We help singers blend registers to the point where the audience won’t hear your transition. This removes “breaks”, cracks, flips, and straining.

Range expansion: When a singer can’t get past their “breaks” they assume all higher notes are out of their range. By balancing their registers, our instructors drastically improve a singer’s range. Most students gain an octave or more.

Vocal Style: What makes you unique as a singer? We help singers identify their strengths to create a unique style that feels authentic to them. We want you to love the feeling you get when you sing and love your own personal style.
