About this pro

My lessons are not just about fundamentals and mechanics, although I do teach strong fundamentals and mechanics of the voice, I also emphasize the art of the performance. How to deliver a lyric with feeling, how to be a story teller as well as a strong singer... 

I enjoy working one on one with singers. I’ve done it over 30 years and have past and present students that have achieved great success...

    When I first found Bobby, I was struggling with my music in general and where to take it next. I had been playing guitar for a while and making attempts at singing. If you're looking to bring your voice to the next step and have a great mentor/guide along the way, then Bobby is the man! We still have a friendship now even after I've stopped taking vocal lessons. Top notch lessons and great encouragement. He will critizice in the all the right spots. Give him a call!

    Thank you so much Zoppi! You were the only person who gave my daughter an opportunity to be taught when she was not even 5 years old. Everyone else told me to wait until she was older or to join some church choir. The group lessons you started too helped her overcome her shyness and now she loves being in musicals. You've taught her so much and the best vocal teacher for young children by far!!!!

    Bobby is a true professional and an amazing singer. I would highly recommend him to anyone who's interested in bettering their performance and vocal qualities.

    Working with Bobby Zoppi has been an incredible learning experience. Not only is Bobby excellent at teaching fundamentals of proper singing, but his lessons go far beyond that. Bobby teaches the subtle nuances of everything related to singing; melody, pitch, public performance and even songwriting. When I first began taking lessons from Bobby, I could barely get through my first open mic. After working with Bobby, I have written an album and performed my songs at Farmer’s Markets, Wine Bars, coffee shops and bars. I suggest Bobby to everyone, from those who are serious about making music a career to those who just want to experience the art of singing for their own personal enjoyment. Bobby’s instruction has been invaluable in my personal music journey! Seth Elsom

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

With new students, i like to make sure they feel comfortable enough before we start singing so we basically start out with just simply learning the basics of strong breath support, good diction and enunciation along with proper face placement...

When a student feels more relaxed we will then start with some easy scales that gradually lead into singing a complete song...


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I was trained by Helen Lee in classical and contemporary voice from 1986 - 1991 and have since worked with various artists and producers ranging from Quincy Jones, Mathew Wilder (Writer/producer of the musical score in Disney's "Mulan",also "No Doubts" 15 million selling "Tragic Kingdom CD")Robbie Nevill Producer/Singer/songwriter) to Guy O'seary (Co-owner and CEO of Maverick Recording Company. Madonna's Label) and Alby Galuten (Producer/co-writer of various artists, ranging from Jellyfish to Barbara Streisand and The Bee Gees etc). In the past 2 decades Bobby Zoppi was signed to MCA Records, Qwest Records(Quincy Jones record label) and Warner/Chapell Publishing and released 2 national CD's. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My lessons are 30 min private sessions, 1 per week/4 per month. 


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching back in 1994 with just a few students and by 1998 I had over 40 students weekly and have continued ever since...


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with all types of students including but not limited to pop, rock, country, jazz, blue grass, r&b, blues, folk etc.  My students have ranged in age from 4 years old to 85 years young.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

One of my prior students of 8 years just recently released a national single on Disney country radio... Im very proud of her.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would advise a student to make sure they feel comfortable enough with an instructor to be able to really execute their voice properly.  They must feel confident enough because confidence is half the battle with singing.
