Can’t Afford Lessons with Master Teacher Tricia Grey? Study with our highly skilled and certified Sing Like a Star Associate Teachers!
Our Sing Like a Star Associate Teachers have university degrees along with extensive professional singing and performing experience. Sing Like a Star Associates go through a rigorous training and certification program in order to teach the SLaS method. Teachers are accountable; they must pass yearly testing and maintain their ongoing private study with studio owner Tricia Grey, MM, in order to teach at Sing like a Star Studios.
Why are our SLaS Associate Teachers so successful at what they do? The difference is the SLaS vocal method. Many voice lessons are presented with vague, undefined objectives and little feedback, resulting in very little real improvement. These ineffective lessons typically consist of a random “warm-up” followed by a song with little or no specific skill building.
We have a better approach: The Eight Steps of Vocal Development, based on the textbook You Can Sing Like a Star! by studio owner Tricia Grey, MM. This is a logical, goal-driven, objective based approach that develops skills sequentially. You can ask your SLaS Associate Teacher at any time about your progress and you will get an informed answer related to the educational objectives of The Eight Steps of Vocal Development. You will know exactly how you are progressing and what the next goal is with the Sing Like a Star method, a method that is based on the educational model of defined and specific objectives and measurable outcomes.
Our goals are to eliminate the break in your voice, make your high notes stronger, and to develop power, flexibility, and musical skills such as vibrato and dynamics. You will learn how to sing in the styles you love- rock, blues, R & B, gospel, country, rock, jazz or musical theater. And you will get the chance to perform and try out your new vocal skills in our twice-yearly Sing Like a Star Singers’ Showcases!
By studying with our educated, experienced, and highly trained SLaS Associate Teachers you are getting the full benefit of the Sing Like a Star vocal method at a fraction of the cost! Utilizing an Associate Teacher from Sing Like a Star Studios is perfect for beginning students of all ages. It’s never too soon or too late to get started with good vocal habits! We provide unique and age-appropriate instruction for children.
You can also learn piano, guitar, and songwriting, artist development, performance skills and choreography, from our SLaS Associate Teachers. Many students book hour-long lessons once a week, dividing the time between voice, piano or guitar, and songwriting.
AND, you can record a demo or your next hit song in our recording studio!
At Sing Like a Star studios we develop the full artist!
At $25 per half hour for these highly qualified and experienced teachers who are bringing you a world-class vocal technique, you won’t find a better deal than this anywhere!
