If you’re searching for a professional Music Teacher and Performer who can give you the personalized attention you deserve, look no further! I’m an experienced and knowledgeable teacher of singing who specializes in lessons for pop, rock, and musical theater. I can teach anything about singing from a beginner learning to match pitch to a professional looking to better communicate the intention of lyrics through melody. Check out a couple of my students in the videos below!
Controlling The Voice
My lessons focus on controlling the voice. For beginning students I teach the basics of support and breathing that will lead to a healthy control of not only the voice, but the whole body. As we continue I move onto learning different individual skills based upon what the students needs most. Some of the most common goals of my students that I address are learning to sing with more volume without needing a substantial amount of effort, extending the range, controlling resonance and frequencies, and eliminating habits that can get in the way of a pure voice. For my more advanced students or those looking to sing a variety of styles I teach how to alter the voice subtly such that one could sing drastically different styles with quality.
"Coltyn is Awesome! My son loves going to lessons! He explains things in a simple way that my son has really latched on to. Already I can hear improvements in my sons singing and we have only had a few lessons! I would give more then 5 stars if I could!"
"Coltyn is so fun to work with and has given me great tools to help me improve my singing! He lets me sing what I want to sing and lets me be myself! I have had teachers in the past who tried to limit me or to make me into something that I'm not, but Coltyn is not like that at all! I was surprised at how much we can get done in half an hour without feeling rushed. Great voice teacher :)"
"He does an incredible job tailoring sessions to whatever your goals are. He challenges you to become better by encouraging you to break out of your comfort zone, something that is very important when attempting to become a better vocalist. He was also very easy to get a hold of and was very flexible which is nice because life happens and he understands and respects that. I strongly recommend his services if you want a respectful, encouraging, and fun setting and want to hear results."
A BIT ABOUT ME
I have been teaching voice lessons in the Milwaukee area since my graduation from college in 2016, but I have been performing since 2011 throughout the United States and Europe both as a soloist and with choirs. I currently perform with the band "Mantra" which can be found on Spotify with our album "False Reality" which can be seen below, with local choirs and theaters, as a solo pop singer, and leading a worship team at "The Way" church in Greendale. Finally, I perform audiobooks for Audible through ACX where I perform and edit all audio.
I have extensive training with singing as I have been taking lessons myself since I could speak. Additionally, I have a degree in music education from Wisconsin Lutheran College, which I use as the Executive Director of the Milwaukee Children's Choir. I teach students from 4-95 primarily in the Contemporary Commercial Music style, but I also teach Musical Theater and Classical.
