Video Voice LessonsDuring the Covid-19 pandemic, I teach all my lessons on Facetime or Zoom. When it is safe to do so, I will resume offering in-person lessons, but will continue to offer video lessons as an option.

Vocal Technique for Actors, Worship Leaders and Other Public Speakers Vocal technique can be helpful to anyone who uses their voice professionally. At Sigal Vocal Arts, we also work with actors, worship leaders, and other people who speak to groups of people as part of their job. Without proper vocal technique, public speaking can put a strain on your vocal chords and cause pain, hoarseness, or discomfort. Sometimes poor speaking or singing technique can cause medical issues—such as vocal nodules. Proper vocal technique can help avoid or overcome such problems.
What We Will Accomplish Wherever you are in your musical journey, I can help you learn healthy vocal technique as well as how to perform before an audience. My lessons include vocal technique, the acting of singing, piano, ear training, sight-singing, techniques for relaxation, mindful practice and performance. As your musicianship deepens with each lesson, you will also have greater awareness of how it feels to sing with flexibility, control, confidence and freedom.
Voice Technique for Singers At Sigal Vocal Arts, we recognize voice technique as the foundation for healthy, pleasurable, creative, confident vocal expression in all areas of life. Proper voice technique requires you to have an understanding of how your body responds and functions. To sing well, you also need to learn ear training, sight-singing, song interpretation, and character development, among other things. Depending on your particular interests and goals, I will draw from the musical elements necessary to produce the results you are looking for—whether you are (or want to be) a singer, speaker, actor, teacher, or something else that requires you to use your voice. Even if you do not use your voice professionally, I can help you discover the health benefits from centered, relaxed breathing, good postural alignment, and making personal vocal discoveries through sound and word.
The Initial Consultation If you want to explore what you can do with your voice, call or email me to set up an initial consultation. During that initial consultation, we will assess where you are with your voice and develop a plan to get where you want to be. I enjoy my work immensely and want that joy to overflow in the studio! I look forward to working with you.
Vocal Technique: As a performer, I know that singing is an almost unexplainable innate desire. As a vocal instructor, I understand that it is also a physiological function. I will teach you to coordinate the two resulting in:
- Body awareness and relaxation
- Breath and muscle coordination
- Expansion of vocal range and smooth vocalization throughout the vocal registers
- Smart repertoire choices
- Creative responses to musical and lyrical ideas, poems, characters, and story lines
Sight-Singing Sight -Singing is the ability to read and sing music at first sight. Ear Training Ear training or aural skills is as skill by which musicians learn to identify, solely by hearing, pitches, intervals, melody, chords, rhythms, and other basic elements of music. Once your aural skills are trained, sight-singing at the correct pitch will become much more natural.
