  • Developing and maintaining a healthy vocal technique is a lifelong pursuit. Techniques learned from many vocal instructors and coaches deserve to be passed on to the next generation of singers. Ms. Scanlon uses her lifetime of study and performance to provide comprehensive feedback and examples for her students. She teaches students of all ages and styles of performance. Students have been successful in local theatre and school performances.Singing is a complex coordination of breathing, phonation, resonation and articulation, overlaid with musical and performance layers. This process needs to be guided by an instructor who is knowledgeable in the vocal processes and anatomy, as well vocal styles and performance.Vocal development progresses as the body strengthens and growing musical skills demand more from the vocal instrument. With proper guidance and that valuable "extra ear" that I can provide, we’ll work together to find your true voice. This voice works freely to express the musical and emotional demands of the literature, allowing the joy of performance to burst free.
