SINGING LESSONS TAILORED TO YOUR NEEDS:
You may never have sung before and even think you can't.
You may just love singing and want to do more of it.
You may be a professional or semi-professional singer with a pesky vocal health or technical problem.
Maybe when you sing you get a sore throat.
Singing lessons can be a fun (and sometimes challenging) way to address all of these needs. Additionally:
You may want help to put the passion into your performances, or expand your vocal palette.
Perhaps you just want to sing for fun, or in order to develop confidence.
Maybe accurate pitch has always been a difficulty - either in a small part of your range, or just generally (or in small ways or large).
Drawing from my knowledge and experience as a touring and recording singer/songwriter, the vocal science developed by Jo Estill, and over 20 years as a music therapist and teacher I can help you develop strategies and skills relating to all the above goals, while maintaining a strong emphasis on vocal health. You may have other goals you would like to discuss in an initial lesson.
We all have many voices available to us. Singing lessons can help you make choices about which ones you wish to develop and which ones "fit".
“Raelene is a positive and enthusiastic person. I enjoy her classes as she is understanding and versatile. I love the passion she puts into her job. She always finds the right way to deliver her knowledge, coaching with endless ideas from her basket of experience. When I went looking for singing lessons I was looking for the best. I know I can loudly say that she is the best.”
Gessica Monni, Tuesday Marmalade (Band name).
“I'm so grateful to Raelene - I had always loved the idea of singing but had that voice from childhood in my head - "you can’t sing, you sound terrible!" After years of miming rather than singing, I finally faced my fears and took lessons with Raelene. After only a few sessions, I was feeling confident enough to stop miming and actually sing! Raelene's approach is so accessible and fun. She told me before we started that everyone can learn to sing - at first I didn't really believe her, but I went from not being able to sing in tune to leading yoga chanting for groups...”

"Raelene is an amazing singing teacher, her knowledge and experience positively impacted my singing from day one. Her techniques and exercises are not only fun and dynamic but also very effective.
During her coaching I improved a lot and learn many important aspects and secrets about singing.
I wish I could have spent much more time in improving my voice and my singing skills with Raelene, however I moved to Houston for family reasons"
