“I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning” -- Plato
THE BACH STUDIO
private voice & music lessons
We'll start with warm-ups and specific to your voice type to develop and improve your vocal technique and increase your range. Release tension and relax your voice with exercises that include aspects of Alexander Technique and simple yoga postures. We'll work through problem areas in your repertoire and improve on your aural and sight-reading skills with Solfege and rhythmic exercises.
There's more to singing than just having a good voice. Performing requires a level of musicianship that will allow you to communicate your needs as a performer with your director, sound engineer, and other musicians.
A firm grasp in piano, music theory, sight-singing, and music history is a must in today's competitive world of performing. Every good singer should be a true musician; I will give you all of the ammunition you need to be light years ahead of your competition!
In her voice studio, Ms. Bach concentrates on Bel Canto technique, evoking the correct and fullest expression of the voice through proper diction and repertoire, breath, alignment, and vocal health. As the student becomes more acquainted with his/her own voice and it's unique challenges, Ms. Bach will begin to work through a series of exercises called Garcia-Marchesi, with which the student begins to strengthen and stimulate the voice and surrounding muscles. Voice technique takes years to develop and regular practice to maintain. Every professional singer was once an aspiring professional singer and Ms. Bach will give you all the tools you need to navigate this process.

An actively performing professional singer, actress, music educator, Corinne Bach learns as much from her students as she teaches, but if there is one thing she hopes they can learn from her is to persevere in the face of negative chatter and self-doubt.
My technical approach is based in the science of vocal anatomy & physiology and in the centuries-old vocal technique of the Bel Canto method. A singer's understanding of how their vocal mechanism behaves under any circumstance is what will keep your voice healthy and singing beautifully for years to come.
We all have to start somewhere. Whether you want to go pro or simply desire to acquire a lifelong artistic outlet, The Bach Studio of Voice & Music will put you on the path to realize your dream!
Corinne Bach, director
I believe in the true "mentor/apprentice" relationship rather than that of the "teacher/student" of today's standards. We should all hold ourselves accountable to a standard that's higher than what anyone else will hold us, even at a young age.
A message to the talented: We MUST work together to shape your goals. To make a future in music and performance possible, you have to work hard and follow the path that is set for you. If you have talent, work hard, and dedicate yourself wholly, you WILL succeed! Remember, hard work will exceed talent when talent doesn't work hard. Be wary of relying too much on your natural gifts to carry you through; if you take it for granted and expect the work to come to you, you won't get very far. But if you are dedicated to your craft, you will place yourself among the Greats.
Simply put, a lesson with me is devoted to you--making the most of your vocal talent and helping you achieve your goals. Whatever style or genre you choose to sing, you will find your true voice is rooted in solid technique.
