Our Approach to Voice Lessons
If you’ve always wanted to hone your skills as a rock, pop, country, jazz, gospel or R&B singer, we have the voice teacher for you. Our voice faculty focuses primarily on popular music. Each week, students are led through physical exercises to improve their vocal range, ear training, breath control, enunciation and more. Each student sets goals with their teacher, either to sound like their favorite recording artist, or to develop their own unique voice. At The Music Room, we welcome students of all abilities to study voice.
Singing lessons are a great way to gain self confidence when performing. We also work with students to improve tone, vocal range, breathing, technique and help them find their unique style.
Voice Lessons Should Be Fun!
Finding your own voice is one of life’s great pleasures – and learning how to use it makes that feeling even sweeter! At The Music Room, we want every student to LOVE their music lessons and find fulfillment in learning how to sing.
Our voice teachers create a positive and supportive learning environment where you can succeed, no matter your starting point or level of experience. Whether you are singing in a choir, a musical theatre ensemble, as a soloist, or just in the car, our experienced teachers can help you build confidence and have fun, while working on music you enjoy.
We Emphasize Healthy Technique
Singing may look simple enough, but the voice is a complex series of systems that form an expressive and delicate living instrument inside of each of us. Perhaps more than any other musical discipline, having an experienced voice teacher to assist you in training these processes to work together is key to a healthy, lifelong enjoyment of singing.
The Music Room’s highly-trained instructors will assist you in learning strong fundamentals including proper breathing, diction, resonance, stage presence, and non-verbal expression. We strive to ensure that our voice students become literate musicians, so lessons will also include discussions of music theory, history, and rhythm. Mastering these technical basics will broaden your horizons and allow you to explore many different styles and genres of music in the future!
We Care About Your Musical Interests
We teach all styles of singing, including musical theatre, classical, contemporary/pop, jazz, country, and folk. Your voice is unique – and therefore, your instruction should be, too. Whether you are a beginner, have some experience, or are an accomplished performer with a desire to further develop your skills, our teachers will provide customized guidance designed to advance your individual goals.
Learn from our experienced staff of professional singers and graduates from several prestigious musical programs. At The Music Room, we approach each lesson with a goal of inspiring creativity, instilling confidence, and exploring the dimensions of what your special voice can do

“My daughter took lessons at The Music Room for years. She tried a number of instruments over the years; violin, piano, and bass guitar. The Music Room’s team was unfailingly responsive and flexible whenever my daughter wanted to change instruments. I highly recommend The Music Room for rental and lessons. I felt like they really cared and they made working with them easy. Carol, Carley, and everyone else we interacted with was great. The Music Room taught my daughter a love of music without pressure or fuss.”
