EVERY VOICE IS DIFFERENT
Each lesson is customized to you and your needs as a vocalist. At the first meeting Anna will hear you sing, find out more about you and your voice, and then develop the lessons as you move ahead, customized to you because YOUR VOICE IS COMPLETELY AND BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE.
From hobby-singers to signed recording artists preparing to go on tour, Anna treats each and every singer with the same care, respect and consideration.
VOICE & PERFORMANCE COACHING
Anna's specialty is voice and performance coaching in contemporary genres such as Pop, Rock, Jazz, Country, R&B, Folk, and Musical Theatre (and anything in-between). She is very experienced with all levels of singers - beginner to advanced. You will work to develop both great vocal technique, getting on stage, connecting your own performance identity and with your audience.
WHAT HAPPENS IN EACH LESSON
Each lesson will include a combination of technique, song coaching and performance work. Technique work includes breathing exercises, proper transitioning between registers, strengthening the mix, upper body relaxation, grounding, resonance work and more. Song coaching includes material selection, learning and singing the material, discussion of arrangement and instrumentation options, style, singing from the text and more. Performance work will include training on how to speak to your audience, introductions, basic staging, stance/posture, mic technique, and more.
Outside of lessons, there are special performance and open-mic nights for Anna's students. They are fun and incredibly rewarding.
Anna also urges each student to have a good quality recording made of a song that they have completed, that can be done at her studio, and can shared with family and friends.
