If you've always wanted to hone your skills as a classical, opera, rock, pop, country, musical theatre, jazz, gospel, or R&B singer, Market Street Music Conservatory has the voice teacher for you! Our voice faculty utilizes classic techniques and training to get you sounding your absolute best! Whether you're preparing for an audition, a college music program, or just singing for fun, Market Street is the place for you! Each week, students are led through exercises to improve their vocal range, ear training, breath control, enunciation and more. Our educators are classically trained and have experience in several genres of vocal performance. Each student will set goals with their teacher, either to sound like their favorite recording artist, or to develop their own unique voice.

What’s the #1 reason to study voice at Market Street?

In private lessons, our voice instructors work with each student and parent on a personal level to craft a lesson plan that fits the student's individual needs and favorite type of music. Whether you’re a singer in a band, a seven year old taking their first lesson, or a fifty year old returning to singing after many years, our friendly, dedicated teachers will share their love of popular music and help you set goals to achieve your musical aspirations.

What styles of singing do you teach?

Our voice teachers are trained in multiple genres of singing... Anywhere from classical, opera, rock, and pop, to musical theatre, country, jazz, gospel, or R&B. 

What will I learn from voice lessons at the Conservatory?

Voice students spend time each week singing exercises to improve their vocal range, ear training, breath control, vibrato, tone production, enunciation and more. All voice students set goals with their teacher to work on their overall goals as a vocalist.

Our voice department creates a space for our students to grow as musicians, and to find their voice. We are here to help you develop the skills you need to sing confidently no matter what the musical genre. We’d love for you to begin or continue your singing journey here at Market Street Music Conservatory.

Corryne believes it is important to craft each lesson to meet the individual student’s learning needs, along with helping the student develop their particular musical style while becoming a well-rounded musician. Corryne has a strong and diverse background in education and performance. She uses these gifts to excite and train her students for a variety of performance possibilities, while also creating a safe space for mistakes and growth.


No matter what the musical style, every vocalist can benefit from voice lessons. Voice lessons also benefit our day-to-day lives, such as breathing techniques and speech. Corryne includes several different performance and warmup techniques so each student is ready for anything. Corryne understands the importance and inspiration that comes from the performance and enjoyment of all musical styles. She has benefitted from learning the techniques to perform several different styles of singing and as performed as a vocalist in many genres. She encourages each student to use their lesson time to explore their own musical style, to grow in their musicianship, and to be open to singing in styles and languages that may serve to benefit their techniques, stamina, and instrument.
