Angela Stewart
Price: $36.00

Versatile artist with extensive background in performing and teaching. I am most interested in the development of young voices and the building of musical expertise in the college age student. My area of expertise range from classical vocal art music, vocal pedagogy and the ramifications of movement and how it relates to music making and performance practices. I am a responsible artist with excellent communication skills demonstrated by 9 years of teaching experience.

              My extensive on-stage experience and my theoretical knowledge of music are vital assets in teaching a younger generation.

              I want to empower the students to have the confidence in working with me, by giving them the skills, resources, authority, opportunity, motivation that they need to be successful.

        To improve vocal production student needs to focus in Breath control, range quality of sound and freedom while singing. I help the students to develop artistic expression through a variety of styles of repertoire, become familiar with foreign languages, and examine vocal music critically. As hi/her voice teacher, I desire to cultivate an open mind, to honor composer’s intentions, to demonstrate personal responsibility for individual learning, develop patience, prudence, humility and sensitive, effective communication skills.

        While I was a professor at the Academy Music Cluj, I also performed as a soloist with, and as a member of the Cluj Philharmonic Choir. Performed a variety of music with a broad stylistic range and improvisatorial flexibility. Performed in front of live audience on television and as part of theater productions

        My teaching style is generally very technically based. I strongly believe that my students need to know exactly why are we doing certain exercises; how the exercise is affecting the voice, what physical action is occurring in the larynx what the result “should” be.
