LUZ MORALES MUSIC STUDIO offers:

Vocal Technique: Includes breath control and vocal production (goes together hand in hand). The vocal technique is called Bel Canto. The voice is placed forward to facilitate ease in singing and production of vocal sound.

Vocal Placement:  Soprano (coloratura, lyric, spinto, dramatic, mezzo contra-alto, leggierra, dramatic); Baritone (light baritone, dark baritone); Bass ( bass-baritone, basso-profundo).   Every type of voice has its own vocal exercises or repertoire. The wrong selection of repertoire or exercise can ruin a singing career.

Corrects Vocal Problems which can cause nodes in the vocal chords or sore throat.

Coaching for classical and semi-classics like standards and church music concert repertoire, such as Lieder, Spanish, French, Italian and opera arias. Prepares a singer for recital and operatic roles.

Group Singing Lessons:
For a group of 4 students. Special for teenagers to learn to sing correctly. With the introduction of vocal technique, they can protect their voices as they grow older. This special lesson is limited to only 10 sessions. They are taught individually the same way they sing in a group. Vocal lessons are strenuous and each child can have 15 minutes, rest, and then after the hour is done, they sing as a group. There is a special rate for this.

Speakers: Learn vocal technique to protect the singing and speaking voice.

Piano: Accepts piano students of all ages. Beginning children have a different rate than the advanced or adult student.
