Singers Ages 10 - Teen

I offer an educational program using the materials of the Royal Conservatory of Music. 

This program involves learning graded song repertoire, sight-singing, and musicianship training.

Singers participate in performance evaluations. Music Theory is an advanced optional add-on.

Adult and Experienced Singers

It isn’t what you sing.

It’s how you approach your singing.

If you have any of these vocal issues, you need to establish a better technique.


Limited range

Vastly different qualities in the low, middle, and high notes

“Swiss Cheese” voice – notes missing, leaving holes in the middle of your range

Breaks in your voice

Too soft

Only able to sing loudly/shout in parts of your range

A sore throat after you sing a short time

You lose your voice after you sing a short time

You are physically exhausted after singing a short time

No projection

No resonance

No vibrato

No connection between tone, breath, and support

Facial pain or other muscular tension in your body

People can’t understand the words you’re singing

You mimic other singers but have no genuine voice of your own
