    senobia is a exceptional voice coach, she is extremely professional at all times, she gets right to work as soon as you arrive and you need to have done your homework because she will follow-up on the out of studio assignments, I studied Jazz singing with her at Free Your Voice Studio and she challenges you to explore your vocal abilities. She is capable of achieving what ever your vocal needs may be... overall she is a great teacher and I would recommend her to anyone interested in studying vocal technique.

    Senobia's positivity and bright smile always made it enjoyable to come to lessons on tough days. My daughter would always speak very highly of her abilities and kind nature compared to her other teacher. I thoroughly enjoyed her wealth of knowledge when it came to healthy functional singing making sure my daughter was always aware and intentional when she made her singing choices. I never felt my daughter was singing anything out of her capability.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

For new students I always get their background information such as, experience, previous teachers, etc. I also try to find out if they have any health issues that they may or may not know be interferring in voice production. Once all of that is out of the way I get to know the student and try to find out their interest and goals with their instrument. Then we start to sing, I do excersises, scales, intervals to help warm them up and then they have them show me what they got by singing for me. Your first lesson is more like an audition to prove to me why you think you should have lessons with me. As well as, to show me your interest and motivation to pursue the craft. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

BA in Musicology specializing in Vocal Performance and Italian (Conferred 12/2009)

CCM Institute 2018 - Session I, II, III Certificate for Vocal Pedagogy Contemporary Commercial Music Training

MM in Vocal Pedagogy Contemporary Commercial Music (In Progress)


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I have standard pricingsand I have packaging prices. It all depends on the students goals and needs. If you know you just want one lesson, great there is one price for that. If you know you want lessons for a longer period of time, I have monthly, and semester packages that are paid monthly.


How did you get started teaching?

I fell into the craft of teaching. When I was in the military performing I was the only singer in the band I was assigned to who actually had any formal training. With that background that led me to coach the other vocalist on technique as well as sit on the audition committee for the band giving a voice lesson to any prospective vocalist.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have mostly worked with performing professionals. People who are not just dedicated but living the life passionate about music. I have also been a introductory to voice instructor for younger middle school age students.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Whenever I step out to perform I always put my best foot forward being prepared for the jobs I have. My most fond event is when the audience can really connect with me on a spiritual level through my musicality. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Communication is essential! Whenever you are in the market for services whether you know exactly what you want or unsure communicate that to you teacher. They are there to help you achieve your goals whatever they may be. If they aren't "GET OUT" fast and find you someone with your best interest at heart.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Think through your desires and goals for your lessons. Be prepared and willing to put in the work because greatness is attainable.
