Featured Apollo Voice Teachers

Emily L

Instruments:

I am a full-time pedagogue/performer with seven years' experience teaching private lessons in voice and piano to a range of ages and levels of students. Although the majority of my students are young adults, I have worked successfully with children, teenagers, and adult students (twenties to senior citizens) of both genders; I tailor my approach specifically to the goals and interests of each student. No two people are alike, no two people learn the same way.

Sarah G

Instruments:

I am a violinist and string teacher from Augusta, Georgia. I recently moved to Pittsburgh where I am happily continuing my career as a teacher and performer.

Adrienne S

Instruments:

I went to college for music because I love singing.  As a teacher I want to provide my students with the same opportunity to play or perform on their instrument and get that same sense of joy and fulfillment that I do with my voice.  I have traveled on national and European choir tours, performed in musicals and operas, and performed in small groups and individually.  Some of those opportunities would not have been possible for me with out music teachers and private voice teachers who invested in my musical growth and ambition.  I therefore want to invest my knowledge and passion for music into students to help them achieve goals or dreams of their own.

Jacquelynn W

Instruments:

 Hello! I am a motivated private music teacher who loves making the process of learning or developing your musical instrument challenging, exciting, and most importantly fun! I am an experienced private music instructor, professional contemporary singer, and actress who recently moved to Pittsburgh from Boston, MA.  I have worked with many students including rock singers, opera stars in the making, classical and jazz flutists, beginning pianists, and people just looking to have fun learning a new instrument.  I am a graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music where I graduated with a degree in Vocal Performance and was awarded highest honors upon completion of my degree.  I have performed in some of Boston’s most well known concert halls such as Berklee College of Music ‘s, Berklee Performance Center and New England Conservatory’s, Jordan Hall. I have also appeared in a few major motion pictures such as Ted and independent films in the Pittsburgh area.  Beyond this, I have also just finished my graduate studies and have received a Master’s degree in music therapy. I use my training and understanding from this program to provide a well-structured and supportive environment for students of all ages and skill levels.  I am currently actively performing around the Pittsburgh area and working on my debut album to be released within the next year.

More Information About Voice Lessons

The voice is the only instrument that actively requires the use of your entire body for its function. This is why maintaining the health of your body in general is crucial to maintaining the health of your voice. Smoking, excessive drinking of alcohol, caffeine and the use of illegal drugs or certain medications is strongly discouraged. Singers are encouraged to drink room temperature water to promote the hydration of their vocal chords. Excessive screaming, loud singing, or singing for long amounts of time without a rest can cause damage to your voice and should be avoided. It is important to eat a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins to keep your body and voice healthy. Daily exercise is strongly encouraged, especially activities that require the use of your lungs such as swimming, running, cycling, or aerobics classes, all of which will increase your breath control capacity when singing.
In order to make the most of singing lessons, it is important that students feel comfortable and not self-conscious. As such, the best environment for learns is the home, as it is a familiar environment with which they can feel more confident in. If students are comfortable and relaxed, they can focus and concentrate on the lessons more. Whilst lessons content is the whether at home or in the studio, singing in an unfamiliar environment can be daunting and create nervousness for students. Taking lessons from home is also the most convenient way to learn, as it negates having to travel to and from the lesson.
During singing lessons, students of all abilities will learn and develop safe, effective vocal techniques that can be applied to a multitude of musical genres and styles. Students will learn how to properly warm their voices up by working through various exercises such as sirens, lip rolls and trills and vocalizing various vowel sounds along to different scales. Lessons will cover topics such as vocal physiology and how the voice works so that students understand what a particular exercise achieves. Students will learn how to increase and strengthen their vocal range by learning how to bridge and connect their voices through the vocal break or passagio and into the head voice. Students can also work on their tone and breath support, and start applying these various techniques to singing actual songs. Students will also learn things such as music theory, song interpretation and style development, and can prepare for gigs and auditions.
Our lessons for adults are focused around teaching vocal technique with the specific aims of the student in mind. Many adults are just looking to improve their singing for their own enjoyment.We also teach students who are auditioning for talent shows such as American Idol, or who are preparing for exams, recording sessions or gigs. Adult students may want an honest, professional assessment of their voices, as family or friends - well-meaning as they may be - are often not an object judge. Learning to sing can be a good boost to confidence, develop all-round musicianship and is open to adults of all ages.
Students can have fun learning how to sing from as young as 11 or 12 years old. As students of this age are approaching puberty, their voices are not fully matured, so care must be taken not to place too much pressure or strain on the voice for fear of risking injury. That said, through lessons and practice, students can learn safe vocal techniques, how to look after their voices, develop their ability to hear and recreate pitch and work on their musical theory. Students can also improve their concentration levels, confidence and self-esteem.
