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.
