I'm an opera singer from Rochester, NY currently completing my Master's in Music at University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music. I am looking forward to teaching singers of any age vocal technique catered to classical singing or musical theatre.
I have worked with a number of opera companies and sung on stages in the US, France, and Italy. I have been studying voice for fourteen years, studying at Eastman School of Music, Oberlin Conservatory, and now CCM. I am a trained dancer and an analytical mind, and I am able to merge both fully body awareness and vocal pedegogy in my teaching style. I use both technical and metaphorical language thank can be adjusted to my students' learning styles accordingly.
I so look forward to working with you!
I highly recommend Tess as a voice instructor. She clearly and knowledgeably communicates her instructions and suggestions. With her insight and guidance, I have been able to vastly improve my breath support and tone quality.
I like to talk to my students about their goals and where they see themselves headed. I ask them what kind of music they hope to be able to sing. I'll listen to them sing, and then develop a plan to work on vocal challenges that present themselves. I help my students incorporate their body awareness and vocal technique with emotional commitment to their music.
I charge $30 for a half hour and $50 for a full hour. I am happy to offer your first lesson for free!
