Currently accepting students for the
2023 Winter Quarter:
"Steps to Success: How Your Body Wants to Sing & Speak"

If you aren't up for the individual voice lessons level commitment, "Steps to Success: How Your Body Wants to Sing and Speak" is a unique small workshop for 4 - 6 students that focuses on speaking and singing technique and expression. It’s for anyone over 16, beginners, advanced voice professionals, and transgender people.

 

Over the course of eight two-hour sessions, I’ll walk you through the simple steps to speak and sing with relaxation and confidence, and we’ll take a deep dive into the fascinating world of the human voice.

The workshops are held in-person or online, are limited to 4 – 6 students, and acceptance is first come, first served. Tuition is $260. There is a required textbook, "Your Voice at its Best" fifth edition by David Blair McClosky, and there is a short reading assignment before the first session.

 

 

 

 

All workshops are simultaneously in-person and online with singers and speakers together. Beginners to advanced voice professionals.

"Bertram is as perfect a voice teacher as you will find. Now, granted there are many methods of vocal instruction. But Bertram's approach makes wonderful sense: tone follows form, and he teaches how to achieve a relaxed form that allows the entire vocal-production paraphernalia to make a balanced, naturally lovely tone that doesn't do damage to your body. He is patient, supportive, and good-humored, as well as having a treasure trove of experience and knowledge about the voice. Very happy to have taken one of his courses, and looking forward to more."
