I can offer you more than your typical voice teacher. I have a professional home recording studio and can produce your vocal demo (details below). I can also help you with your career, with everything from Voice to Songwriting to Music Business to Performing Skills. Whatever you need; to get from where you are now, to where you want to be.
A little about my approach to Voice Training:
My specialty is pop and rock, but I can help train your voice for any style of singing. I use instrumentals (professionally recorded karaoke instrumentals) as a tool for practice and performance, so you can perform your favorite songs exactly as you are used to hearing them.
You will learn:
Vocal exercises (including vowel sound exercises
How to control your voice
How to sing on pitch and develop your ear
Emotional dynamics (pacing of the drama and dynamics of a song)
How to sing softly with clarity and power
How to increase volume without straining
How to sing high notes with confidence
How to balance the sound between higher and lower registers
How to move easily from one register to another
How to overcome performance anxiety
Most importantly, you'll be having fun, while learning a skill that will bring you a lifetime of enjoyment!
Also, when you're ready, we can record your vocal demo. We can either use the instrumental of your favorite songs (for covers), or you can play guitar or keys (if you're a songwriter), to record your originals. I will coach you for the recording and engineer/produce your demo in my professional home recording studio. You will then have a CD demo and MP3's to use in any way you'd like. You can use it to promote yourself, post on your website, make copies for friends (and new fans!), etc. This is included at no extra cost!
I teach Tuesday-Thursday, 2-9pm, at my home studio in Foster City. $50/hr. Go to my Contact page at http://www.musicbynatalia.com/contact and click on the Schedulicity link to schedule a lesson.
