Free Your Voice Music Studio is owned and operated by Senobia. Our philosophy at Free Your Voice Music Studio is to teach singers of all levels how to access their own unique sound by freeing up their voice. What do I mean by free up the voice? Our daily lives influence our sound whether it's us trying to imitate a song on the radio or the sound of our favorite artist. My job as your voice teacher is to bring you to a peaceful atmosphere helping you access your sound by getting you out of your own way.

The studio is now offering in-person and online voice lessons, semi-private lessons for siblings, group voice classes, and theory classes to advance your musicianship. We offer weekly lessons at several different time lengths paid in advance each month. Read more about the different services we offer and the value of lessons with us below.

Lesson Structure:
We structure lessons around the vocal strengths, weaknesses, and goals of our students. For vocal training and audition preparation, a minimum of a 45-minute lesson is highly recommended. Lessons are typically once a week but are sometimes offered twice a week depending on the needs of our students.

 

During the first half of the lesson, we warm up our voices, and students begin to develop a functional technique through a series of vocal exercises. This part of the lesson may also include sight singing, ear training, as well as music theory depending on the package you choose. The second half of the lesson gives students an opportunity to explore performance techniques and various vocal styles through repertoire as well as learn how to apply our new functional technique to our repertoire.
