From Paulina: “As a teacher, I help students find and connect to their own voice. In lessons, we focus on building healthy singing habits, honing musicianship and creative expression, and celebrating vocal breakthroughs. For new students, the initial lesson will consist of a brief discussion about music background and goals, an assessment of where the student is at, and developing a customized vocal roadmap for the student. Succeeding lessons begin with an exploration of vocal technique including breathing and vocal exercises and application of technique through song work.”
What are lessons like? "Lessons have been going great! I really feel like I'm starting to understand how to use my voice through the technical knowledge she provides. Each lesson I feel improvement. She gives great feedback and encouragement. I always feel motivated after each lesson." Abi Mendez, current online student
