Corinne SchaeferVoice Studio
Corinne Schaefer is opening her studio doors to share her insight and experience in opera, musical theater, and in vocal technique, offering a foundation in a classic bel canto technique, which focuses on creating healthy legato singing supported by breath control and smoothly blended vocal registers. By mastering this foundation, students will gain a flexible voice, extended range, and the endurance needed for a long and healthy singing experience. This foundation, is the healthy basis that students can use for any style of singing.
It is with this classical technique that Corinne offers lessons to aspiring professionals, hobbyists, and instruction for those looking to work and improve upon classical musical theater vocal technique.
Corinne brings her stage experience to her lessons, having performed such roles as Die Königin der Nacht in Die Zauberflöte, Musetta in La Bohème, Gretel in Hänsel und Gretel, Norina in Don Pasquale, as well as covering the role of Carlotta for two years in Hamburg's production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's, The Phantom of the Opera, a role she went on to perform 114 times!
Singing lessons have multiple benefits; from building confidence, improving speaking and communication, developing presentation and leadership skills, as well as creativity, artistic awareness, and self-expression. Lessons will be designed around the skill level and goals of each individual student, while also providing a foundation in a healthy vocal technique. Lessons will focus on presentation, interpretation, posture, breath control, diction, and memorization. There will also be master classes and performance opportunities offered to students.
Music is the universal language. In addition to sharing the language of music, Corinne, as a native speaker of English, combines her two languages to the benefit of her students. Offering them a special and unique combination, they will benefit on and off the stage. Whether your goals are to sing in the shower or to sing on the stage, these skills will enrich your musical journey.
Corinne offers individual voice lessons, in addition to special voice lesson packages for children (ages 10 to 12), teens, and adults. Each package will focus on skills and techniques for each development stage, building upon a solid foundation, while preserving the individual's goals.
