PRIVATE VOICE STUDY
Private lessons are one-on-one sessions with Miss Leigh. They are best for committed students, who have a passion for singing, are prepared to make a continuous commitment to improvement, and develop proper vocal technique. Private lessons provide an opportunity for individualized accelerated learning.
The most valuable teaching requires personal contact, close observation and practice. A beautiful voice is no more valuable to its holder than a beautiful violin or piano. It is just as difficult to master one as the other. A singer must be trained, no matter how striking the natural voice.
Miss Leigh offers not just technical instruction but life lessons as well. Whether performing, composing, directing or coaching, Miss Leigh is in close contact with the entertainment industry through her work outside of the class setting. This experience is invaluable to the student.
With many of her students in prestigious universities such as NYU, UCLA, Syracuse, Georgetown, and the Boston Conservatory, Miss Leigh has excellent knowledge of the college application process. Students can expect exceptional assistance in song and monologue preparation based upon a long history of successes, and on what best showcases their distinctive talent.
The preparation for applying to college begins well before the paperwork. Successful students lay the groundwork months, if not years, in advance. Miss Leigh will help the student not just zero in the material, but work on development and preparation of audition pieces, and give students life skills that will serve as a basis for success both in the university setting and in everyday life.
Many former students have described what they’ve learned as the most realistic representation of what to expect, and many college entrance evaluators describe Miss Leigh’s students with one word…”Prepared”.
