Andrea Wolper

Andrea Wolper has been described as “a giant singer” (In Tune International) with “an inventive, thrilling, appealing musical vision” (Blogcritics) who “brings songs to life, whatever their source, working in a milieu that begins with jazz and reaches out to embrace an expressive area that is uniquely her own” (International Review of Music).

Her original songs, as well as her unusual arrangements of standards and music from a variety of genres and sources, reveal a dynamic, singular musical sensibility that reaches audiences beyond category.

Willing to teach



Private Lessons I offer individualized instruction tailored to the specific needs of each student. No one-size-fits-all lessons here; exercises are selected based on what you need, in the moment, to develop your voice, your individual sound, healthy technique, and the very joy of singing. I'm a Level II certified teacher in Somatic Voicework™ The LoVetri method, an integrative method of vocal training based on function and physiology (in other words, there's no mumbo jumbo: my teaching is based on how the vocal mechanism actually works, and what's healthy). When appropriate, lessons include basic musicianship skills like ear-training and rhythm training, and methods for developing ease, relaxation, and freer vocal expression. I have experience working with adults and children, and beginners are warmly welcomed and encouraged. It's important that you find not only a skilled teacher, but one you feel comfortable with. Please email with any questions you may have, and feel free to schedule a first lesson without any obligation to continue. Coaching Coaching helps you develop your performance and interpretive abilities, and can also include focus on repertoire, finding keys, arrangements, leading a band, etc. My approach is always supportive, encouraging, and non-judgmental. Singing is a joyful act! "Andrea is a complete professional with the pipes to back it up. She has the gift of voice and a even greater gift for being able to share that gift with others through her teaching techniques. What a wonderful experience to work with her!! " - Tia
