About this pro

My vocal technique is based on healthy uninhibited vocal production that can be applied to any style with variations for different genres and styles. As a crossover singer myself, I have experience singing and teaching jazz, opera, musical theatre and pop.

I love to see my students succeed and develop their own passions for music! I like exposing them to different pieces and styles they haven’t tried before.

    Chelsea is very friendly. She immediately identify my vocal range at my first singing lesson with her. The vocal range surprise me a lot since I do not know how to sing at all and have not sung for more than 40 years. Chelsea teaches me how to relax, how to prepare before singing and gives me a lot of confidence to sing. I am so glad that I found Chelsea. I am looking forward to taking more classes with her.

    I came to Chelsea when I was auditioning for a musical and she gave me the confidence and preparation I needed to nail the audition. After being cast she helped me work on my solos and access my natural resonance putting my singing where I speak.

    Chelsea is a very patient teacher. She took the care to adapt her instruction so that I could meet the desired outcomes.

    Loved taking lessons with Chelsea - she’s so nice! After working with her my high notes were much easier.
