Curiously Strong Performing: Vocal Coach Vs. Voice Teacher?

When you are at the professional level, or even a student in a prestigious conservatory, a voice teacher and a vocal coach are two separate entities.
Strictly speaking, the voice teacher teaches you vocal technique – breath management, resonance, proper alignment, articulation, phonation, and helps you with extending your range and navigating vocal registers.

The vocal coach might focus on specific elements of your performance:

  • Diction
  • Musicianship
  • Interpretation
  • Performance Practice/Style
  • Or a combination of all these elements

With Mezzoid Voice Studio, you’ll develop your vocal technique in one-on-one lessons (Curiously Strong Singing). But you’ll become a performer in recitals and showcases, studio classes, workshops, mini-courses, and masterclasses with internationally known clinicians with whom Christine has worked in both her performing and teaching careers (Curiously Strong Performing).
