    My daughter has work with previous music instructors but it wasn't until she start working with Senobia at Free Your Voice Music Studio that I have seen significant improvement with her voice. She really enjoy work with Senobia who is teaching her not only how to use her voice but also the importance on how to take care of it so is to not cause damage. I've recommend Senobia to everyone I come across that's looking for a voice instructor.

    My teacher is very kind and easy to work with. She really takes her time to understand my voice and help improve it. I really enjoy working with her, and it has been a major help for me! I highly recommend signing up!

    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.

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 any previous health issues they may have had in the past that could be interfering 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 vocal instrument.

Then we start to sing! We do a series of exercises, scales, and/or intervals to help warm them up. We work on vocal production exercises for me to see how they use their instrument and maneuver through there registers. Lastly, we work on voice production and application through song. The first voice lesson is a chance for the student to get to know my teaching strategy and for I to get to know the student. It is important for both of us to have our expectations clearly laid out and to build a great rapport.


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

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

I have standard individual pricing and 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 and can be booked directly through the website. If you know you want lessons for a longer period of time, I have monthly packages that are paid upfront each month.

We currently offer competitive priced voice lesson packages. To include beginner child and adult voice lesson packages, professional voice packages, and audition preparation packages. Scholarships are available based on need.


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 that had a strong foundation in vocal training. I was assigned to teach fellow band singers and incoming vocalist basic vocal production. My strong background 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.
