Private Vocal Lessons



 

 

"The progress that I have seen in my voice since working with Janet is astonishing to say the least.

I have seen other coaches and didn’t really learn anything. We just did scales, breathing exercises, and usually I was left with a hoarse voice. This is not your average vocal coach. Janet is all about technique and making sure you still have a voice in 30 years. I didn’t even realize what proper singing was before I went to her. Now, I can belt high notes effortlessly and I am learning true skill. Plus, the price is fantastic for the quality of the education. Honestly, I can’t say enough good things. She is so professional and personable. Just try even 1 lesson, you won’t stop coming."  Sierra Skye, Feb 20, 2021

Fundamentally expand range, ease, tone, expression, sense of yourself. Certain movements, stretching & positioning allow people to shift

ingrained habits and build freedom. If one technique doesn't work, you'll have five more to succeed! After 4 decades of performing professionally, I absolutely love making it easier for others to find their voice.  I've taught privately and workshops for over 2 decades.  It is incredibly satisfying to watch people progress so quickly, and expand their sense of themselves so deeply! 

 

I'm a great vocal technique teacher for a variety of styles: pop, musical theater, folk, classical, country, French cabaret, and various ethnic styles.  Go to someone else for true R & B, rock screaming, or opera.  Songwriters, teens 13 +, beginners who just want to grow, and active performers all have found amazing growth with me.  Many come after unsatisfying experiences with other teachers.

Lessons are 55-60 min. $60, discounts for low-wage earners. High-wage earners often pay more because they value it!  This helps fund lower fees for students and low wage earners.  ​Lessons are half technique and half applying to songs/speech and interpretation.

CALL to schedule Mon-Thurs. You can text, but I prefer speaking with each person prior to lesson.  This is free. 

 

Voice lessons  empower people fundamentally.  

Students are brought together for community and performance--when ready-- 2-4 times a year.

" I am so excited to finally begin to RE-FIND MY VOICE!!!  This is so good!!!  I love your energy and how you "get me".  I have worked with other teachers that just wanted to change me to fit into their mold of what they thought I should be.  I am an oldie but a goodie and I want to shine as long as I can!!!  Thanks for helping me shine!  You are so much fun to work with."  Bonnie Sandberg, 2017

 

I can completely recommend Rayor as a teacher! She is extraordinary with teenagers

Surprisingly, as my students can attest,

I teach well what I do not sing!

However, here is me singing:
