Expand your range and improve your vocal confidence. Build a dynamic voice no matter what style you sing! Based in Vancouver BC, Alida Vocal Studio continues to give voice lessons to singers from all styles of music and all levels of musicianship. Alida has been teaching for over 8 years and continues to train as a voice teacher throughout the year as a certified IVA singing instructor.
Learning without strain and still be able to keep your style is possible! The singing technique that Alida teaches trains you how to sing with ease and no strain, while still producing a powerful vocal sound. The goal is to have an even voice from bottom to top without any breaks, to learn how to use “mix” voice, and also to be able to sing the challenging songs you have always wanted to.
“Alida is extremely well versed in the technique that she teaches and she is able to bring out the best in me. She is thoughtful, specific in her commentary, understanding, and unbelievably knowledgeable, but most importantly she is kind and that kindness provides me the best possible opportunity to shine.”
– Tosh Turner
“Since beginning voice lessons with Alida I have become more connected with my chest voice, which has not only improved my singing but also has significantly clarified my craft in acting. She is an inspirational teacher.”
– Emily Bett Rickards
“As I am a school teacher, I appreciate the time that Alida takes to answer my questions, and to teach me techniques to improve my vocal ability.”
– Ian Poole
As your singing teacher, the priority is to get you singing comfortably from the bottom to the top of your range without gripping extra muscles or flipping into a disconnected breathy tone. Through the practice of the vocal exercises, you will feel a big difference as your voice becomes free of unhealthy vocal habits.
With a degree in music from the University of British Columbia and a strong performing arts background, and over 20 years of singing experience, Alida’s teaching will help you grow as a singer and performer. Alida recently received her Advanced Instructor Certificate with Institute for Vocal Advancement (IVA). Alida is also a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS). Many of Alida Vocal Studio client’s have landed lead roles in television and film, school or community productions and have gained vocal confidence for auditions. Some have participated in singing competitions both locally and internationally or have gone on to record albums and tour.
Your singing lessons can be scheduled either weekly or bi-weekly for 30 or 60 minutes and will be held at two different Vancouver locations depending on the day of your lesson.
