Private Lessons

What is a typical lesson like?


Sheri was trained in bel canto technique and uses elements of that method in every lesson, which include strengthening and balancing vocal registers, developing agility and beauty of tone and developing an understanding of appoggia (the leaning of the breath). These techniques enable a student to know their voice deeply and can be applied to any genre of music. Once a voice is balanced, it can do almost anything!

Lessons always begin with exercises tailored to the student to target specific challenges on which they are working. Later the focus moves to repertoire. To get the most out of lessons, students should practice 30-60 minutes a day, at least 4 days a week. Sheri is a kind and supportive teacher. She finds a connection with each student and believes that every student can improve, no matter their experience, background or age. Sheri has learned to be creative, tackling issues with zeal but also humor. 

Sheri gives lessons in person to fully vaccinated students age 10 to adult and over Zoom, FaceTime and Skype.
