I have been in the music business for the past six years as a Producer, Audio Engineer, Songwriter, Arranger, Musician, and Music Teacher.  I am a vocal coach, a keyboardist, and guitarist with gigging experience.  I have worked with several artists and musicians in the studio and I always strive to push all the right buttons to make sure that my artists and students get the most out of their lessons and learning experience.  

Melissa M

Instruments:

Melissa began singing in a church choir at the age of four and has been "hooked" ever since. After years of performing in various choirs and taking lessons herself, she went on to earn her Bachelor's degree in vocal performance at Illinois Wesleyan University and her Master's at Illinois State University. Meanwhile, Melissa was also studying piano from childhood through college. Now in her 21st year of playing, Melissa loves to teach beginner and intermediate pianists in addition to young singers. She is a newcomer to the DC area, and has previously lived, sung, and taught in Illinois, Indiana, and Vienna, Austria. Melissa has performed on both the undergraduate and graduate level (and beyond). Her experience includes operas, operettas, recitals, musicals, and choirs. She has performed in venues ranging from the Indianapolis Opera to the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. Over the years she has performed in the United States, Canada, England, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Russia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Finland. She also studied piano for many years, and has experience as an accompanist and vocal coach. Other than her pedagogy training and the typical university diction and literature curriculum, she also took 14 years of French, and lived in a German-speaking country for the better part of a year studying the language. Her knowledge of diction and language issues is extensive. This, combined with her comprehensive training in music theory, history, and repertoire, gives her a vast reserve of knowledge and resources for her teaching.

Michelle P

Instruments:

Instilling and nurturing a love of music and developing musicianship are at the very heart of why I’m a private voice teacher. I earned my Master of Music Education degree in 2012 from Boston University, which has furthered my love of teaching and given me even more resources to draw from. I am currently singing with Choralis here in D.C. recently performing Beethoven’s 9th Symphony under the baton of Gretchen Kuhrmann. Previously, I’ve sung with the Toledo Opera, the University of Toledo orchestra, and given numerous recitals throughout Ohio. 

Donna H

Instruments:

I am a very seasoned voice and piano teacher with a very broad music education in vocal performance, piano performance, accompanying, music education, musical theatre and conducting.  I am solidly classically trained in standard repetoire.  I am a conductor of school, church, and community choirs and have been a guest conductor at American Choral Directors Conventions.  I am the past Music Teachers National Association President from Fairbanks, Alaska. I was also a Lead Singer and Director of Class Act Vocal Jazz Band and Golden Heart Chorale.  I have the very best to offer my students.  In addition I am an expert in vocal technique, vocal health and fixing vocal problems including speaking.

More Information About Voice Lessons

Singing is a physical endeavor that requires effort, strength and coordination. The best way to ensure good vocal health is to sing and train using safe techniques. Bad technique or abusing the voice can cause vocal fatigue or even damage, such as nodules.The quickest and easiest way to wear out the voice is through shouting, screaming, or forcing the voice - often in order to sing higher notes. By avoiding such bad habits, as well as by limiting the consumption of vocal irritants such as alcohol, tobacco and food with a high sugar content, singer reduce the risk of injury or vocal fatigue
Voice lessons in your home offer a convenient and practical way to master the art of singing. Voice lessons in your home require a piano or keyboard so that the teacher can use that to conduct your lessons. Whether you want to learn classical voice, jazz, pop, or musical theatre styles, our instructors can provide you instruction on what songs would suit your voice best.
During their lessons, students will learn how to sing with good, safe and effective vocal technique. Learning to sing with good technique is the cornerstone to improving the tone, range and health of the voice during singing. Students will learn how to warm up properly, how to increase their vocal range, how to improve and strengthen their tone, performance techniques, how to accurately replicate pitch, how to support their singing with good breathing techniques, song interpretation and how to apply these techniques to singing their favourite songs. Vocal technique is not genre specific - the techniques taught can be applied to almost any genre of music. Students will develop these skills by vocalizing to piano scales. These vocal exercises are things such as; singing different vowel sounds on different scales, sirens, lip rolls and trills, articulation exercises and respiratory exercises. The exercises are tailored to the specific needs and ability levels of each individual student.
There are numerable reasons why adults may wish to start taking singing lessons. Singing is a highly enjoyable, fun and creative way to express yourself musically. Many students take lessons simply to improve their singing for fun or to take up a new hobby. Students who have specific goals in mind can also have lessons to achieve those aims. Often singers want to improve a particular aspect of their singing such as increasing their vocal range or learning to sing with vibrato or greater agility (runs, fills...). Singers who have a certain style of singing in mind can also learn the techniques behind a wide range of genres.
Learning to sing as a child is fun, rewarding and vastly beneficial to their overall development. Children can develop their ability to accurately recreate pitch, theory knowledge and singing technique. Young students can also develop their concentration, listening skills and familiarity with different musical genres. Learning to sing can also be character building, such as instilling a hard-working attitude, developing self-discipline and confidence through practice, taking exams, entering competitions or performing live. Students are advised to start their lessons no earlier that 12 years of age, as they have yet to reach vocal maturity.
