Singers learn how to breathe effectively for singing, remove vocal strain, expand the range, gain stamina, learn flexibility, build vocal power, balance the vocal registers, discover individual artistic expression and nuance, and improve overall artistic performance for both the stage and the recording studio.
Actors learn how to project more easily, experience better body/voice alignment, how to switch from singing to speaking and vice versa, how to develop character voices while honoring vocal health, learn voiceover skills, improve diction, and build vocal stamina.

SINGERS FORUM - FREE EVENT!
The Singers Forum is a free online event open to enrolled singing and acting students. It is about an hour in length and takes place approximately every two months. It provides aspiring and professional artists with an opportunity to try out their material in a supportive no-judgment setting. A singer can present just part of, or an entire a song, or an actor can run through a monologue, for example. The session is not recorded to protect confidentiality.
MUSIC THEORY CLASSES
Music Theory is an excellent class for singers. A winning combination for the Complete Singer is to be able to play piano and know music theory inside and out. It's worth it, and it is very accessible with the training Zoe Vandermeer provides - no previous experience needed!
PIANO LESSONS for SINGERS
Being able to play piano is a 'must' for singers. Having solid skills in both piano and music theory make it possible for singers to 1) be their own boss when working with recording engineers and producers, 2) to learn songs without having to rely on a recording, 3) and to be familiar with all aspects of the song or aria, not just the melody. These skills empower the singer to be the best musician they can be! Zoe Vandermeer teaches piano/keyboard for beginning to advanced levels.
