Take in-person private singing lessons or singing lessons with a friend (all on Zoom for now). Call me (Nancy) at 603-357-4693 or Email me. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
“I wish I could sing, but I know I can‘t.” Is this you? Well, this is your chance! I customize your lessons just for YOU! Every person’s goal is different…
Maybe you want to sing in a chorus, to sing with friends, to be more comfortable singing the happy birthday song, or just to enjoy expressing yourself and discovering your voice. You may find that your goals change as your lessons progress. It’s often a very intuitive process.
NOTE: You’re probably here because singing is at least a little bit scary for you — so I want you to know that I will make this process feel safe and fun for you!
You Will Learn to:
• Breathe in a deep relaxed way to support your voice
• Get past your emotional discomfort, shyness and fear
• Do warm-ups that incorporate stretching and yoga
• Tone, slide and siren with your voice
• Get loose and make crazy noises
• Connect your voice to your feelings – express yourself!
• Sing on pitch and match notes
• Listen and sing at the same time
• Approach learning a song in a logical, de-mystified way
• Sing simple harmonies with other people
• Sing rhythm patterns and sing using a variety of rhythms
• Develop your own repertoire of favorite songs
• Find ways to sing with people in your community
A few thoughts about singing on Zoom…
I’ve been teaching online for about 10 years, and I love it! And now, during the Pandemic, I can’t tell you how grateful I am that we can connect this way!
I have worked with students from all around the world from my sweet little town of Keene, New Hampshire, USA.
Even though it’s online, it’s still personal. This surprised me at first, but it’s true. Even the emotional impact of singing together works on Zoom.
The technology isn’t perfect but it’s WAY better than just good enough! Online singing lessons have been wonderful and people are achieving their goals even though we can’t meet in person — and we’re having FUN.
One helpful suggestion is to update your Zoom to the most recent version. When we meet, I’ll give you a few specific suggestions about adjusting your audio settings — it’s easy!

“I absolutely wouldn’t have been able to sing in front of people if I hadn’t taken lessons with Nancy. Now I sing for the residents at a nursing home. No sweaty palms, no pounding heart, no shaking like a leaf. I’m having so much fun and people are enjoying my singing. I actually get requests!”

– Singing Student
“Nancy has helped me along the journey of bringing what I hear inside my head into the world. She brings a patience and a kindness to her process that focuses on joy and emphasizes the pleasure of singing. She has helped me replace my perceptions of singing failure with success, anxiety with relaxation.”
