Looking for a voice instructor in the Lake Cumberland area? I offer private voice instruction through the McNeil Music Center in downtown Somerset, KY. Here's an idea of how I work:
Depending on what you need, I offer 30 or 60 minute lessons scheduled weekly. I do at least 15 minutes of focused vocal warm ups and ear training/sight-singing, and then15-30 minutes of song work. I focus a lot on understanding the musical structure (rhythm, key, range, form), technique (breath, vowels, posture, and how things feel) and interpretation. I don't like to rush; I strive for patience + intention over "perfectionism." I like to keep it fun, too! Finding joy in the process is essential to success. Wanna know more about my musical background and teaching philosophy? Here.
Interested in lessons but afraid you can't afford it? I've started a scholarship program thanks to the Kentucky Governor's School for the Arts Toyota Alumni Fund! It's called Lift Every Voice. More info can be found here.
