About the lesson
12 years of Opera Training 5 languages, Musical Opera, Musicals, 13 years professional singer/pianist, Choir/ensemble music, chamber music, acapella, been playing piano 55 years, was a model/makeup artist, actress, dancer, ESL teacher for Spanish, Egyptian, Chinese, Japanese. I'm in school right now going for my BS degree in Human Services with a concentration in Addiction and Counseling, I can teach how to write, read. I have skype, I have web cam. Made a movie with a movie star. I have right now 7 years of college. I will be graduating in less than a year which will give me 8 years of a University training.
I live in Reno NV, I have 2 adult children, 1 grandchild.
My techniques I use stems from my first voice teacher when I was 14 years old. I use her methods alone. Breathing is first, with the diaphragm, once this is mastered then we start on songs, between we do runs to give you your range.
I have taught voice 25 years privately at home. I have taught piano privately as well from beginning to advanced by ear mostly. I play by reading sheet music as well. You will receive 1 1/2 hr lessons with me. You will need a pen, 2 pencils, sharpener, a mirror where you can see what you look like singing. A very heavy dictionary, for your stomach when you lie down, you put the dictionary on your abdomen, and then I teach you to breathe properly first. I like to make it fun, and interesting for my students, not boring. So if I make a funny face, just accept this as extra, for the price. Haha. I look forward to each and every one of you who has decided to learn from me. God Bless

1 How long do I have to take lessons? - As long as you want to
2 When can I start to learn to sing a certain song or my favorite song? - After you've learned how to breathe
3 Do I need a tape recorder? - Yes you do, for the reason, you will want to hear how you sang the very first lesson all the way to the future. It's always a good idea as you want to see how far you've come.
4 Do I have to practice? - Emphatically yes you do. Each day from 15 min to 45 min.
If you have any questions for me please write them down and once we start I will answer your questions for you. So keep the notebook always handy with you.
