Lessons

Mairi Irene runs an active voice studio for students of all ages. Lessons focus on the fundamental aspects of singing, including breathing, resonance, diction, communication and performance skills in additional to basic keyboard theory and musicianship. She is committed to helping each student achieve their unique goals, improve their technique, and expand their appreciation and love for music.  Though technical lessons focus on classical bel canto techniques, Mairi Irene loves to work on a variety of repertoire including pop, rock, folk and musical theatre. Along with individual lessons, there will be two studio recitals this year, several group lessons, and opportunities to prepare for festivals and RCM exams.
