Make the most of your voice! Beginner to advanced, hobbyist to professional, I am excited to give each singer the chance to blossom and grow as a performer. I offer positive, constructive coaching in healthy vocal technique and breath control, repertoire selection, stylistic interpretation, audition preparation, stage presence and how to work with a band. I specialize in jazz, but can also help with other styles. We can work on eartraining and music theory, songwriting, or learning to read music too!
24 hours notice is required for cancellations. A makeup lesson will be scheduled at a mutually agreed upon time. If less than 24 hours notice is given, you will forfeit your lesson, except in the case of illness.
Life happens! Scheduling accommodations can be made when necessary. Contact me to work out the details.
"I highly recommend Heather Ward as a singing coach. She gives practical physical advice after a quick assessment of what your holding patterns and/or bad habits are, choosing a simple clean language to explain what the adjustments will accomplish to help you notice them when they are in effect. She does this in a positive and nurturing way and gives a lot of encouragement and patience while you sort it out. I learned a lot in a short period of time and was quite thrilled with the results." – David J., Vancouver BC
"As a beginning voice student, Heather worked with me to make sure I was learning proper technique. She helped me to identify and feel the different parts of my voice and if I didn't quite understand or "feel" it, she would always try a new technique to help me make that mind body connection. Her understanding of the body as an instrument is deeply rooted in her own singing practice and I'm so grateful she was able to share it with me." - Rebecca E., Seattle WA
