Voice Lessons Old
"Linda is one of the few voice coaches that I recommend. She inspires shy beginners, and redirects professionals to a more streamlined way of singing without changing their vocal personalities." - Rebecca Folsom, singer/songwriter

MOST LESSONS STILL TAUGHT ONLINE DUE TO COVID, in-person lessons now available for June & July of 2022, on Wednesdays and Thursdays in Boulder. NEW STUDENTS- please pre-pay in order to have your lesson time reserved, and please call & speak to me before booking an in-person lesson! I reserve the option of wearing a mask for in-person lessons.
As a teacher, I'm proud to put all my varied experiences together into a teaching style that is effective and accessible. The foundation of my method is 10 years of classical Bel Canto vocal study, but my 30+ years of pop/rock/jazz performance have had a huge impact, too! Mix in a holistic music degree from Naropa University, Reiki Level II Training and Sound Healing studies, and out comes my unique take on singing and teaching voice. My style is relaxed & intuitive, backed-up by a wealth of education, knowledge and experience, and a strong desire to help people find the beauty in their own voices. (check Bio page for details!)
A typical lesson is 50 minutes per week, or every other week. We start with a 10 minute stretch and warm-up, work our voices out for about 30 minutes, then 10 minutes for a song. However, when you enter my studio we're on your time, so we can structure that time any way you'd like! Beginners generally need more exercising and advanced students need more song time. I prefer to have students commit to a minimum of 12 lessons once we’ve done the initial lesson to see if it’s a good fit! These are Regularly Scheduled Lessons, and get scheduling priority. I can also take on a student for short-term A La Carte Lessons if it seems appropriate and my schedule isn’t full, but if you start studying voice and quit after a few lessons, you haven’t given it a chance. It’s like deciding to get in shape at the gym but only going once or twice! Growing & changing your voice takes consistency, thoughtfulness & patience. If you decide to take the time to work-out, nurture, and learn about your voice, that knowledge will last a lifetime.
All styles & all levels of experience are welcome, starting at age 12.
Available lessons times are Monday-Thursday @ 1:45, 3:00, 4:30 & 5:30 Mountains Time, Denver, US.
