Voice and Singing Lessons in Norwalk

I offer 30 and 60 minute singing lessons for contemporary voice training including pop, rock, musical theater, and similar styles. I can help you to sing with more power, control while extending your vocal range with no stress or strain on the vocal cords. My approach typically produces immediate and positive changes to your singing.

I am happy to offer a free 20 minute singing lesson & assessment for children and adults.

I am interested in teaching you these simple techniques and putting them to practice. My technique is for the contemporary or musical theater singer. I have studied the Seth Riggs Method and am a graduate of John Henny's Los Angeles program (John Henny Voice) and am one of very few teachers in CT that offer a science based approach. I can get new students on the path to singing quickly. I can also help with auditions and any problems that experienced singers may have in general or with specific songs. I will never draw out lessons or try to "slow teach" as I have seen many places do exactly that.

FAQs - Voice Lessons

What is your typical process for working with a new voice student?

  • I do a quick voice assessment and give immediate feedback as far as what is going on with the breathing, cord (vocal fold) control, and resonators ( throat, mouth). I find that most students experience a significant positive shift in singing in the first hour lesson. This is due to the scientific approach and the system that I teach.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to teaching singing and voice lessons?

  • I worked with several classical teachers over the years. I found, although helpful, they did not have a great understanding of the voice, how to truly control sound, and the specifics of contemporary singing (my style). That changed when I found and studied with John Henny from Los Angeles (John Henny Music Academy). John is teacher to the stars and for many years worked for Seth Riggs who taught Michael Jackson and other celebrities. John took his method to the next level which is the basis of what I teach.

How did you get started teaching voice and singing?

  • I've been studying all aspects of music for over 30 years. I love performing and also teaching so its a natural progression. Voice teaching has an immediate impact. I love when I see students have a "moment" and experience an improvement.

What do you typically help students with?

  • Help extend vocal range, help to sing more balanced, less stress. Fix voice problems caused by cord squeezing, pulling chest etc. Give more power to singing without strain. Create a better "mix" in higher register singing. Be able to sing with more power at the high end of the singing range without having to flip to falsetto.

Please explain some of the concepts you teach

  • There are three major elements to singing; Breath Control, vocal fold (larynx) closure, and positioning and size to your resonators ( throat, chest, mouth). The process of breathing to support singing is different than most people realize. It can be learned quickly and can create a dramatic improvement to one's vocal quality and resonance. Vocal cord control is more subtle but essential in ensuring that we produce a sound that is neither strained nor too "breathy". Manipulating our resonators ( ie mouth) through vowel adjustments when singing is something many students are not taught. This is a cutting edge concept and allows singers to navigate through challenging song sections with ease.

My rates are $90 per lesson(1 hour) or three lessons for $225(prepaid). I look forward to working with you! Please contact me so we can start on the path to fun, effortless, and powerful singing. No experience necessary. Everyone can sing!
