Hi! My name is Sofia and I have a passion for music and singing. I have been classically training privately for about 7 years, and graduated with a Bachelor of Music, with emphasis in Vocal Performance from Grand Valley State University. I have a lot of knowledge on how to sing in a healthy way, and can discern quickly when someone has an issue with their voice, knowing how to adjust. I want to share my gift! And help someone who wants assistance to become the best singer they can be.
I just want to say that ever since taking these lessons, my self confidence in singing has never been better. You are a great teacher, you have patience, understanding, and bring a smile to every lesson. I am pleased to have you as a singing teacher and one day I can show off my talent to the world because of this wonderful woman.
She is very patient and fun to talk to. Makes lessons very comfortable.
First of all, I like to get to know the person: what is their voice type, how much experience they have singing, what styles they would like to work on. Once that is learned, we move on to warming up a bit and gaging their instrument.
I graduated from Grand Valley State University, Bachelor of Music with emphasis in Vocal Performance. I have also been training with renowned operatic tenors, and have participated in master classes in New York City
Standard rate is $25 for a half hour.
I first started teaching while I was still working on my undergrad degree to make ends meet as a full-time student.
Singing is always a work in progress. Don't buy into the teachers that will "give you a perfect voice" in very short amount of time, because usually that involves unhealthy techniques.
