VOCAL STUDIO

lets get singing

OH, HEY.

I see you there.

You’re a career driven performer.

 

You don’t just do this for the heck of it.

 

You understand that to be competitive in this industry, you have to train like an athlete.

 

You also know that your voice is a casting directors first introduction to the quality of your work.

 

But more often than not you’re singing on a hope and a prayer.

 

You’re so stuck trying to successfully execute “placing the sound in your unicorn horn” (wondering why it hasn’t worked since that one voice lesson) that you can barely  tell the damn story.

WHICH IS THE WHOLE POINT AM I RIGHT?

What if there was a better way?



 

LEARN THE FOUNDATIONS OF FUNCTIONAL SING

Hi!  My name is Maddie Tarbox.

 

I’m an evidence-based voice specialist focused on helping musical theatre professionals like yourself claim true efficiency, accuracy, and consistency in their voices.

 

Gone are the days of quick fixes, inconsistent imagery, and one right way to do it. 

 

You’re here to do the work. To actually understand the inner workings your voice (maybe for the first time in your life). And to engage in true ownership of your instrument.

 

When you dig-into this process, hoping and praying turns into an exquisite integration of mastery and skill.

 

And some bad-ass storytelling.

 

So let's do it.

 

Let's get singing.

Imagine high-quality voice training without having to leave the safety and comfort of your own home. It is an unprecedented time full of challenges. This doesn't mean you should have to put your voice on hold. Online voice lessons are ready and waiting for you.

How does it work? You will study with two electronic devices, and a bluetooth speaker . A computer or tablet to "zoom" on, and a phone or other music playing device for accompaniment tracks (preferably connected to a Bluetooth speaker for "umph"). That's it! You will be strategically guided through the rest.

"Maddie is without a doubt one of the best vocal teachers you will come across. After only a few months of lessons, I was singing like a new person. I feel confident that I have been given top-notch training and have the confidence I need to be successful in the Musical Theatre industry. I came in with some vocal issues (straining, fatigue and bad habits) and Maddie gave me tools to make sure that I was singing healthily and in a way that I could sustain. Not to mention she is the sweetest, kindest person you'll meet. I am forever grateful for Maddie and the tools she has given me."

MAKAYLA C.

"One of Maddie's most outstanding areas is vocal music. She is a brilliant singer and vocal pedagogue. Immediately following graduation from our Musical Theatre Program, she was hired as an adjunct private voice instructor. Her students have demonstrated excellent growth and she has become a solid component of our vocal faculty."

JIM C.

"Maddie has been a wonderful vocal coach for our 11 year old aspiring musical theater star. Her preparation, warm ups and song choices are fantastic. She has worked with Celeste on her stage presence and has given her the confidence to sing with abandon! I love how much she has grown as a singer in such a short time!"

KATHY A. 

Maddie is the best vocal teacher I have ever worked with. She goes above and beyond to make sure you understand the technique, and is always looking for ways to help you improve. Her background in voice as well as acting provides concise, effective feedback from a vocal and emotional perspective. Maddie understands the vulnerability that comes with singing and learning - I have never been more comfortable working in front of anyone else!

MADDIE'S STORY

HOW I LANDED HERE

Growing up, I was surrounded by music. My mom was an accomplished performer and voice teacher and enrolled my siblings and me in music classes from a very young age. I loved it. Every second of it. I was definitely that standard musical theatre girl in middle/high school.

 

Voice teachers in the area at the time were all classical. My mother had trained with a wonderful classical teacher and enrolled me in her studio in my early teens. But secretly, I loved to belt. I came of age at the time Wicked premiered on Broadway and I wanted nothing more than to sing those songs. Too scared to take such styles to my classical teacher, I taught myself how to belt. 

 

I got by with this self-built belt "technique" in high school and undergrad, but the truth of it was, my technique was unsustainable. Belting took so much work. I thought that was simply how it was supposed to feel. It's big and loud, so it must be effortful, right?

 

Wrong.

 

I did not get to experience the power of functional training until I had finished my undergraduate degree and went to certify in Somatic Voicework(TM) - The LoVetri Method with Shenandoah University in 2013. I felt transformed by the ease this science-based training brought me. And it was only a taste.  I knew I had to further my knowledge.

 

It would be another five years before I had the opportunity to fully study with Shenandoah University. The experience has truly changed my life. I could not have known how a teacher possessing the necessary patience and power of evidence-based voice training would foster such freedom, growth, and artistic expression. It is for this reason that I strive to share these tools with as many beautiful artists who come my way.
