Well, I am a highly experienced teacher with an understanding of both classical, music theater and pop styles, having performed and been coached in those styles.
Maggi is an excellent teacher who not only understands the physical aspects of singing but nurtures the emotional. I sing professionally and have studied with Maggi for 8 years. She is constantly challenging me and under her tutelage, my voice not only has gotten stronger but more flexible. My son and daughter also study with Maggi and she has done an amazing job shaping their young voices.
Maggi helped me strengthen and balance my voice with her fabulous insight, vocal exercises and expertise. She is a gem. On a par with the best NYC voice teachers I studied with. Extremely knowledgable and a truly caring and devoted teacher. I highly recommend grabbing the opportunity to work with her.
Maggi personalized the lesson experience for me and gave me what I needed as an individual singer. She also motivated me and built up my self-esteem, when anxiety got in the way of my singing. I would not be singing today if it wasn't for Heilweil Vocal Arts Studio!
It is different for each student and depends on their experience, personality and goals. For sure, exercises to improve breath management and technical singing skills will be important for anyone at any level. I only teach hour lessons so that there is time for a full singing experience at every lesson.
