I have been involved in music from a very young age - my mom was a piano player and singer and started to teach me piano when I was three. I sang in choirs through my teenage years and into adult life. I eventually chose to pursue music as a career when entering University. After much musical study and returning to the Edmonton area, I continued to perform and started to teach while my children were young. I continue to perform recitals and concerts in the Edmonton area and have thriving studios at MacEwan University's Alberta College Conservatory of Music, at The King's University and at my home studio. I love to see my students succeed, whatever their level or goals are.
I teach a classical approach to support and technique but my students sing in all genres of music and languages.
Making the Most of Your Talent
It is my belief that every lesson is a learning experience for both the student and myself.
Regardless of where you begin, we can take an amazing music journey together.
WHAT I OFFER
RESULTS THAT LAST
With beginning students, we will study the fundamentals of vocal production, breath management, anatomy and physiology. I also cover posture, musical terminology and the finer points of how to practice efficiently. The theory of music is an asset but may also be taught if the student has no previous experience.
CUSTOMIZED LESSONS TO FIT YOUR NEEDS
More advanced students will have practiced in the fundamentals mentioned above and be able to apply them to more advanced repertoire. Aural Skills will be a part of every lesson. We will continue to add technical challenges and performance techniques.
For the advanced student, audition techniques, resume writing and performing opportunities will be added to the study of roles, preparation of recitals, concerts, operas, musicals and competitions.
"Beth is a teacher and ear I can trust. No matter where my education or career takes me, I can always depend on her to bring me back to the foundations of good singing technique. The 'language' of voice teaching can be challenging to understand from teacher to teacher but I have always found that Beth is able to well articulate and explain difficult technical concepts for the singer on all levels."
