Private 60 minute voice lessons for all ages and experiences levels. Private voice lessons are the foundation of the The Lori Lusted Voice Studio, as well as the most popular service offered. All lessons start with vocal warmups, technical exercises, and then this technique is applied directly to the student's repertoire.
Whether it be an audition appointment you’ve been granted with one day’s notice or whether it’s your first audition with months to prepare, Lori is well-equipped to make sure your audition cuts and/or sides are polished and at the highest level. Acting through song and song interpretation are major points you will cover together.
Since Lori is actively auditioning herself, she can help guide and prepare you for what to expect in the room, how to speak to an accompanist, make sure your sheet music is appropriately marked, and help you hone your overall audition skills.
Every college and university tends to have slightly different requirements for vocal departments, but each is very specific. Whether you are auditioning for a Classical or Music Theater track, Lori will take away the guesswork, help you sort through the specifications and help design and coach your audition package so you have the appropriate material - exciting repertoire that is not overdone.
