on the path to discovering it."

-Alicia Keys

anyone can learn to sing

Yes, you heard that correctly, everyone can learn to sing! Our voice is the only instrument that is not man-made. It’s an instrument that’s always with us. However, the voice is an instrument that takes technique, skill, practice, and patience to perfect. Just like learning a school subject, learning to sing comes easier to some people than it does to others. However, the vocal cords are a muscle that can be trained, strengthened, and fine-tuned to perfection.

tailored lessons to fit your needs

Our professionally trained vocal instructors utilize a number of tools and techniques to teach posture, breath control, pitch and tone, and vocal range expansion. At Spicer’s Music, we believe each student regardless of their age is unique and requires a personalized vocal education plan to meet and exceed their vocal goals.

Let one of our vocal instructors and vocal coaches work with you to increase your vocal skills and self-confidence.

about

Why are you passionate about teaching?
It’s truly a privilege to spread the joy and wonder of creating music with developing musicians; music is a powerful, effectual tool that is worth sharpening.

What makes you unique from other teachers?
I emphasize the concept of learning technical skills, with an ultimate goal of individual composition and musical expression. This is how I personally most enjoy music...taking my technique tools and learned cover songs, and then applying those ideas to personal music projects. To me, the best part of learning an instrument is eventually creating new music with that instrument.

about

Why are you passionate about teaching?
Being able to read music, play piano and/or sing for my own enjoyment or with others has brought me much joy in my life. In teaching, I hope to help build confidence in each student as they learn their skill. I love the thought of helping someone else find their passion.

What makes you unique from other teachers?
I was an extremely shy child! Playing the piano was a “safe” activity! I was able to gain confidence and leave some shyness behind as I grew musically. I recognize this in some students and really enjoy helping them build confidence along with their musical ability. I love that I can read music! I recognize that children learn at different rates and styles. So, I’m happy to help a student learn at their own pace.

How would you describe the atmosphere/energy in your teaching studio?
Encouraging! Correction through guiding, not criticism! No one person is the same as another, which makes each of us special and unique! (True for me, too, even though I have an identical twin!) Music is supposed to be fun, bring joy and be pleasing! I want students to leave feeling good about themselves, not overwhelmed or frustrated.

What is something fun about you that you would like people to know?
I’m an identical twin! I love musical theatre and one role I played was “Peter Pan”, which included flying through the air and sword fighting Capt. Hook! I love to ride mountain bikes on trails in the woods! I raise monarch butterflies! (I’ve got thousands of pictures to show,.....just ask me!)

What are your passions outside of teaching?
Spending time with my husband and our grown children, working in my yard and flower gardens, raising butterflies, playing with my dogs, mountain bike trail riding!

about

Why are you Passionate about Teaching Music?
There is a certain magic that happens when a student and the music “click” – I live for that look on their faces and the energy in the room! Music has the power to change people’s lives in both big and small ways, and being a facilitator of that creative outlet is a dream come true. I’ve worked with kids in some capacity for most of my life, and I count the opportunity to be an encourager and an instructor as a huge gift.

What makes you unique from other teachers?
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in musical theatre from Auburn University, so my foundation is one of acting through song and breathing life into music, regardless of the genre! Also, I LOVE working with students on any audition/theatre material. With my background comes a specific passion where music is concerned, and I do my best to help my students feel that as well. Whether we’re belting out Evita or playing Ode to Joy for the 4th time :)

How would you describe the atmosphere/energy in your teaching studio?
Positive, FUN, and safe. A huge goal of mine is to have an atmosphere where everyone feels comfortable, known, and free to be exactly who they are. To make the hiccup mistakes and ask the questions, while feeling supported and encouraged along the way. There will never be a lack of fun in my studio, but that also comes paired with a constant strive for technique, understanding, and progress!

What is something fun about you that you would like people to know?
Fleetwood Mac is my favorite band of all time, green is my favorite color, and one summer I lived in New York City & performed in a musical!

What are your passions outside of teaching?
I love reading, cooking, pottery, watching films, live music, day trips outside of Auburn, and drinking coffee! (I like to think my studio is like iSpy and there will always be coffee somewhere to be found.) But most importantly, I love spending time with my pesky pup Samson, my friends, and my awesome family.

about

Why are you passionate about teaching?
I have always had a passion for singing, even before I was good at it. I started taking voice lessons in the 6th grade, and I began school at the Alabama School of Fine Arts in the 8th grade, where I met some of the best teachers in the state. All my teachers over the years have had such an amazing way of keeping me engaged and enjoying music. If it weren't for them, I might have gotten burnt out on music. Now it is a passion and it's going to be my career. I want to nurture that in my students, whether they want it as a career or as an outlet. I want to be that person that helps someone find the love for music I have, because it's such a wonderful thing and it can be a skill they will use for the rest of their lives.


What makes you unique from other teachers?
Classical music is where I have had most of my training, though I love singing contemporary music as well. I will really be focusing on the basic techniques that can be applied to all types of music. Singing healthily is also a big part of my teaching, because many people don't even know you can sing unhealthily! I want to help any student with any genre, as long as they're passionate about it.

How would you describe the atmosphere/energy in your teaching studio?
I want my studio to be a safe-space for my students. The only way anyone can properly learn to sing is if they are able to feel the words they are singing. I want my studio to be as light-hearted or as disciplined as the student wants. If singing is just a fun activity, then we will take it lightly. If a student has a goal or a performance to work towards, I can show them how to prepare for it. Practicing regularly can require as much motivation as studying for a test, so it is a skill to learn if that is the goal for a student.


What is something fun about you that you would like people to know?
I really like board games and sweets! My favorite board game is Munchkin because it has a lot of imagination involved. I also really like playing Mario Party with my friends, especially partner party where you can play with teams.

What are your passions outside of teaching?
My main passion in life is performing music. That is my major in college and I plan for it to be my career later in life. I want to take what I learn from working towards my degree and use it to help students learn to perform themselves, if that's what they want.
