"One needs a voice teacher to learn singing technique, to solidify his singing foundation, and to add more delicate techniques as he continues his progress. Strengthening, training, and stamina-building are taught and drilled in the voice lessons. A voice teacher suggests and assigns repertoire; first, as a learning tool, later as a showcase to be added to the student's own portfolio."

In-Studio

My in-house studio is located in Easton, Pennsylvania. It is situated in the Lehigh Valley, where one can easily go to and from Bethlehem, Allentown, Emmaus, Nazareth, and other nearby towns. One can also say that Easton is mid-way between New York City and Philadelphia, with a 75 to 90-minute driving time in either direction.

What equipment is necessary in a good voice studio?

It only takes a few things for a voice teacher to teach her students in a suitable environment:

A piano: It can be an upright or a grand piano of any brand, or even an electronic keyboard, as long as all the keys are functional and in-tune. At my studio, I have a Steinway&Sons baby grand. Before moving to America, I had three pianos -two uprights and one baby grand- in my Bangkok studio. A student who arrived early could spend a few minutes warming up, or looking at his assigned music prior to his lesson. When we moved to Easton, we had to downsize because of space. To me, it doesn't matter which piano I use to accompany students in their vocal exercises, as long as it is in-tune.

A mirror is essential in a voice studio. It is there for students to catch themselves doing "funny" things as they go through exercises and repertoire. I have a few mirrors hung in the studio, and, nope: students just cannot escape seeing how they sing!

Repertoire Library: As students begin to explore the way of their voices, they will spend their time more on working with vocal exercises to get their bodies familiar with the vocal path. I use repertoire as a tool to test out what students have learned. Is it necessary to have a large library of music? -Not really. However, this is not to say that I don't have any music. Between the book shelves in the studio and in the reading room in the back, I probably have a few hundred music scores and books -but who's counting? My collection accumulated over the years of performing and teaching. It starts with the 24 song Italian Anthology, to French chansons, German Lieder, and English Soliloquy, all the way to opera scores and Broadway music. I would say that I have plenty of resources with which to start each student out with the appropriate repertoire.

Other things that are add-ons -but not necessary must-haves- are:

~ A chair -sometimes I'd like a student to sit while experimenting on certain exercises.

~ A sofa - this is for me to sit on while watching students sing their repertoire.

~ A music stand - to place the music as one sings, of course.

~ A glass of water - keep the throat moist! You can bring your own, although I usually have a glass ready for you.

~ A box of tissues -to wipe the tears that sometimes roll down when the going gets tough. Also, when a certain break-through takes place, students usually get emotional. -Who says that studying voice is easy?

~ Tools, such as an exercise ball, hand weights, chopsticks, etc. -This depends on whether I feel you need extra help in order to make you feel aware of your personal singing tool (aka your body.)

Each student is unique

...and there is no one same student. My teaching is not "canned," since all come into my studio with different vocal baggage. To be able to see each of you closely helps me identify what you need in order to improve your singing (and, sometimes your outlook!). Do come in and take lessons at the studio if traveling to me is not a big ordeal for you.

Skype

Lessons via Skype is beneficial for all students from every corner of the world.

This is a new way toward your vocal discovery: Seeing how you sing up-close can bring so many benefits! It is a positive way to learn how to enable good vocal habits.

What brought me to teach lessons on Skype:

I go to Bangkok, Thailand when time permits, to open a summer studio where students can come to have voice lessons. Then, they ask, "What happens when you leave? We won't have you to tell us if we are doing the right thing!" -This helped me decide to open my Skype Studio. It is not like being one-on-one with me in the studio; but, amazingly and surprisingly, being able to see each other up-close via the computer monitor does bring other good benefits to both you and me.

Skype lessons are also ideal for students who are on the road. It is excellent for vocal maintenance and keeping the voice fresh. I have students who skype-in to tune up their techniques and check their vocal mechanisms in order to keep in shape during performance productions. Several of my overseas students have successful performing careers and Skype is how they all "check in" with me.

All you need is an Internet connection and a computer, tablet, or mobile phone with good speakers and a mic, and we are all set. Weekly voice lessons are recommended for most students, even if students have started singing professionally. Just like athletes, singers are those who need to work with their bodies regularly to strengthen and maintain their ability and capability. If you are not able to attend your once-a-week in-studio lessons, your next best option is to take lessons via Skype.
