Credentials/Background

I do coaching and teach vocal technique in my home studio in Brooklyn (or can travel to your home or studio, by arrangement). Lessons are tailored to meet the specific needs of each student, from beginner to advanced. Lessons in vocal technique focus on healthy singing, developing a natural sound, building range, etc. 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! www.andreawolper.com/teaching "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
