We all have unique voices and abilities with different needs, styles, desires and goals. I can help you develop your particular style and range as a singer or speaker with your most authentic expression and grow your vocal power and confidence. As a teacher, performer and professional entertainer for many years (thousands of hours on stage and in the studio) in Los Angeles and South Florida, my approach as a voice and performance coach is holistic. As a performer I've entertained as a singer and dancer (in my 3rd season as a Miami HEAT Golden Oldies dancer!) in small rooms and arenas, and I can help you develop and hone your performance skills for any environment. We will enhance your skills in unexpected and remarkable ways, and you'll have fun doing it!
Caryn is an inspiring coach. She takes the time to understand your goals and helps you work towards them. I look forward to my lessons. She has pointed out things I wasn’t aware of and is always encouraging while working on areas that can improve.
Caryn is very enthusiastic and her energy is infectious. She has a well organized program and it is easy to see progress.
Caryn is such a positive and joyful person and her energy made me feel comfortable. I really enjoyed my singing lessons with her and found that her excercises when done regularly would make a Big difference to my singing. Great teacher!
Our initial meeting/lesson requires a little "pre-homework" for the student so I can understand their history and goals, some singing so I can hear their skill level, and some exercises to start.
I've studied with great teachers (classical, contemporary, creative) and culled curriculum from the best over the decades. I've also spent 1000's of hours singing on stages and understand from very practical experience what transpires with the voice technically, physically, emotionally and creatively in practice and performance situations.
The first lesson is $45 and last 45-60 minutes.
60 minute lessons are $60.
45 minutes lessons are $50.
5 and 10 lesson packages are available for both.
I started teaching in Los Angeles many years ago, starting with a friend who asked for lessons. I was more focused on my performance and recording career then so didn't teach for long. When a friend in Florida asked for lessons, I started again.
My students have ranged in age 6 to 74, novices and professionals, recording artists, pop, R&B, soul, rock, alt, gospel, country, metal, soca, electronic and musical theatre (to name a few).
Singing is a very athletic endeavor when done correctly, and I just finished working with an Olympic swimmer who's also making electronic dance music (he's moving to New York and may do online lessons). The correlation manifested itself in so many ways, it was very cool to see his vocal development progress so quickly.
Take one lesson with me and see what happens. I'm proud of the progress my students have made and continue to make. I know I can help.
It's helpful to think about your goals, budget, timeframe for lessons and practice, and schedule.
