Saint Charles, Missouri
My love of singing began in my freshman year of high school, when I joined the choir. It was a life-changing experience, and inspired me to make music my career. I immediately began taking private voice lessons, and became a voice teacher myself by 2005. While in college, I was presented with many opportunities to learn and grow, both as a musician and as a teacher. I sang in several different collegiate choirs, and was nominated to be in the all-collegiate choir in 2007. I also passed yearly auditions to sing in Voices Only, Lindenwood's most advanced vocal group. During my junior and senior years at Lindenwood, I worked as the assistant director of Voices Only. This was a wonderful opportunity, and I learned so much while leading warm-ups every day, running sectionals on a weekly basis, directing the group during rehearsals and even during performances when the director was away. I currently sing in the Saint Louis Harmony Chorus, one of the top 25 women's barbershop choruses in the world. I am on the music faculty of the chorus, and am also the baritone section leader. I also sing in an award-winning barbershop quartet called Executive Sweets. Vocal students are not required to purchase a curriculum for voice lessons, as lessons are based around the fundamentals of singing (breath support, head/chest voice, tone, and diction) and focused on each student's desired repertoire. For classical voice students, this will include art songs, arias, and the like. Students are encouraged to choose pieces in Italian, French, German, Latin, and Spanish, as well as in English. Students typically work on two contrasting pieces at a time, and pieces are often chosen with an eye toward preparing for one of the several recitals, competitions, and festivals my studio participates in throughout the year. Each lesson also includes warm-ups tailored to each student to develop technique and expand range, and a short theory or ear training session. Depending on student interest, these lessons may also include work on improvisation, composing, and musical dictation.
About Angela H.

Hi! My name is Angela, and I teach private piano, voice, and music theory. I've been teaching music for most of my life at this point, and have taught many ages (3 to 93) and ability levels. My favorite, though, is watching long-term students grow and mature as musicians over the course of several years. I believe it's a teacher's highest honor to be able to one day tell a student that it's time to spread their wings and take flight on their own, and nothing delights me more than when my students come to me with pieces they've learned on their own, because they had the desire and the confidence to try something new without me. I am a dependable, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic teacher - I love what I do, and it shows. I'm also flexible - whether a student is interested in performing, recording, competing, or just making music in their own home, I always tailor the lesson around a student's unique goals. I consider myself more a guide than a taskmaster - creating structure to help the student thrive, yes, but also working with them to overcome obstacles. I find that's the best way to promote lasting change and improvement. I offer lessons for 30, 45, or 60-minute weekly sessions in my home studio or online. At the moment I am only accepting fully vaccinated students for in-person lessons, and masks are required.

Angela is amazing! After one lesson with my 7 year old, my kid is already excited about playing the piano again!

Great first lesson. Eased my fear as an older student that has never played an instrument. She has a nice approach based on my goals. Looking forward to learning more!

She is a great teacher with a lot of patience for this woman who always wanted to learn how to sing! I'm sure it isn't easy teaching online because of this time in our life, but she makes it fun!
