VOICE TRAINING:

Optimize your expression.

​Is this you?

  • enjoy voice lessons but feel disconnected outside of the studio

  • was told that singing classically was a rite of passage for contemporary singing

  • feel like you're only ever putting Band-aid fixes on repertoire rather than exploring your voice

  • was taught five different "correct" ways of breathing to the point of confusion

  • have no idea what lip trills have to do with singing Let It Go

I can help. Singing is a beautifully complex activity.  And it can also be broken down into manageable, trainable components to make it frustratingly easy.

“Curtis made me feel so comfortable and listened to while I was working with him. He is so very focused, kind, passionate and attentive in any environment. There is a calm to his spirit that not many leaders possess."


HANNAH CORNEAU

Actor

“Curtis is a fantastic pianist and coach, who supports the singer with his playing. His incredible musicianship, knowledge of repertoire, and a firm grasp on musical styles make him an asset to any performer.”


KEVIN MICHAEL MURPHY

Voice Teacher

“Curtis has a special way of empowering his students. It felt like we had all the time in the world, like it was another day where two friends could laugh and sing, while being immensely productive without stress.”

...But what is a
STUDIO MEMBERSHIP?

The standard for singing training has long been the 1:1 private lesson model: Singers working in private on their private skills with their private voice teacher. But dancers and actors train in groups. Why not singers?

Acquiring new skills is so much better when rooted in COMMUNITY!

As it turns out, there are a lot of common goals and scenarios that bring people to private lessons in the first place.

 

Instead of only pursuing these goals alone, what if there was a cost-effective way to have built-in camaraderie to support your individual progress as well as a host of other singing services to jumpstart your growth?

Enter: THE STUDIO MEMBERSHIP

The Studio Membership is a monthly or annual subscription that includes not only individual lessons, but also skills-based cohorts, asynchronous feedback, and other features to optimize your vocal goals. Picture it like a traditional gym membership with classes and training included instead of paying out-of-pocket each time.

All members choose a Skill Pod, which are dedicated, biweekly training sessions for a group of singers with similar goals. Skill Pods run consecutively in sessions and have limited capacity to ensure maximum attention for each student. Think of it like a mini semester.

Check out all that's included...

  • Access to all foundational core content

  • Community support with a private online group

  • Choice of bi-weekly Skill Pod cohort to join

  • Targeted individual lessons

  • Studio class with other studio members

  • Asynchronous feedback between lessons

  • Strategic repertoire planning session

PICK YOUR POD

UN-STUCK:
Getting Out of a Rut

For artists who:

  • are stuck singing one genre

  • want to enjoy singing again

  • are feeling pigeon-holed into singing one genre of music

  • have nagging insecurities surrounding their voice and career

  • desire a flexible voice that is capable of authentically expressing many genres

LOFTY GOALS:
Classical Crossover

For artists who:

  • are classically trained and looking to add musical theatre singing to their repertoire

  • want to learn to belt but have been told it's "unhealthy"

  • feel bewildered or banished to the “legit” corner

  • do not understand the difference between standard classical and musical theatre classical singing

  • wish to be a crossover artist

QUADRUPLE THREAT:
Singing + Instruments

For artists who:

  • consider themselves actor-musicians

  • feel like the only missing piece is a reliable singing technique

  • are frustrated trying to coordinate playing and singing

  • play an instrument but are new to singing

  • want to create their own actor-musician work for the industry

Philosophy

Singing, like any instrument, is a learnable, trainable skill everyone can develop. Combining sturdy technique with unique artistry allows for transcendence to a supernatural, magical place.

Inclusivity

Our studio is a place that celebrates every artist regardless of background, sex, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, class, political affiliation, physical or mental ability, or any other identity category.
