Overview:
Hello my name is Barbara and I have been teaching voice for over 25 years. I have help countless people achieve their goal in the performance world. I have one as director on Broadway, one touring worldwide, one on Dance Moms, one on Broadway, three released their debut album. Two won the Apollo, others have received leading roles in school plays and other are performing opera in various venues. I am certified in voice and use several different techniques to help you obtain your goal. I have trained Miss Universe Finalist and I have tried Ms Connecticut finalist. I have been blessed in helping you get to your desired goal.
EXPERIENCE
My love for the quality voice and making learning fun stemmed from having clients who was tired of the regular lesson. I love taking learning to the next level and using the world as our canvas. I teach people how to sing to mountains and they mountains respond. How to smell their breathe and learn the right breathing techniques. Practical teaching goes along way and is better understood by all. I love teaching little kids as early as 1 how to sing, did you know they understand pitch and relevance, kids are excited and I enjoy what I do just to see them succeed.
METHODS USED
My method of teaching is non-traditional. I start off sometimes with using vocal tai chi, check our my videos. I allow the student to get in touch with the body and sound in the voice, this helps the student to use an analogy of how to get the sound out of the voice. Another method I use and much rather be in the gym are real exercises. I show the student how to reach the notes that they think are impossible effortlessly but more importantly out of all the techniques, I bring them back to the books, internet and facts to show them the operation of the voice so they will know if they are experiencing any pain then they are not doing it properly.
LESSON STYLE
My lessons consist of listening to the client. You know how you go to the dr and they ask you, what is wrong and you began to try to explain your diagnosis and they put your through a cycle of tests? Well I do the same with my students, my favorite are the shy, quiet types. I am not sure if you call it a lesson for the first time but we sure do have fun and learn a lot. We try to make sure that everyone is comfortable and know the basic before proceeding. I take each person at their own paste, so they can keep up with themselves. I allow them to take notes, bring a voice recording device and water. It is important that you have tools of the trade. I expect each person to come in with a goal and to accomplish it upon leaving. Voice warmups are different based on the need, so I can not be traditional. Customers need to know that we have invested and will continue to invest in our passion of teaching and giving others opportunities to do the same.It is important to know more than one style of teaching. For example, NATS (National Association for Teachers of Singing) we share ideas and it keeps us current and up to date on new trends and ideas. You know what I love most? We make sure that the person has everything they need and if one teacher can not give it to them, we send them to the next to get what they need. We work as a family unit to ensure the best quality of the client.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm.
