Exploring vocal repertoire with students is one of life’s greatest joys! Since graduating from the University of British Columbia with a Masters in Music Performance, I have had the wonderful opportunity to teach in White Rock, BC as well as at the Conservatory of Performing Arts, University of Regina. I will begin my tenth year of teaching private voice lessons. Alicia’s Voice Studio was opened in Airdrie, AB in January of 2014. Besides having experience as a private voice teacher, I have also had the opportunity to adjudicate at the Long and McQuade Music Education Centre in Regina. I was also invited to adjudicate for the Saskatchewan Music Festival Association in Maple Creek, Swift Current, Lafleche, Davidson, Yorkton, and Gravelbourg.
I have taught people of all ages and levels, from beginner to advanced students. I enjoy aiding vocalists in preparation for upcoming performances, auditions, music ministry, RCM examinations, local music festivals and master classes. Whether your musical goals are to perform or just improve your singing for your own enjoyment, I can help you on your musical journey. I have taught many different genres of vocal music including classical music, musical theatre, Christian rock, popular music, and standard jazz. I specialize in teaching classical, age appropriate art song, folk song, musical theatre and opera. As a classically trained singer, I teach technique which helps in the improvement of breath support, alignment for superior vocal production, tone quality, lyric diction, interpretation, and much more.
My goal as a teacher is to provide an encouraging atmosphere of learning and a solid vocal foundation of technique which will aid in producing beautiful singing and moving performances. I have also received acting coaching throughout my training as an opera singer. I like to encourage my students to engage in dramatic presentation as singing actors as well! My students have a lot of fun and get to explore a lot of fabulous music.
