Private Lessons
Eva Kendrick is the Director of the Eva Kendrick Voice Studio, Professor of Voice at Dean College in the Theatre Department, and Director of Music at First Parish Unitarian Universalist of Medfield. She also taught Music Theory, Sight-Singing, Composition and Voice at the Community Music Center of Boston for 12 years. She currently teaches out of her private studio in Medfield, MA and online using Zoom, Facetime and Skype. In addition to voice lessons, she also offers vocal coaching, college audition coaching and instruction in music theory, sight-singing and composition.  

 

Vocal Coaching/College Audition Preparation
Eva is a vocal coach who provides individualized training for auditions of all kinds, including music and musical theatre college auditions. With a vast knowledge of musical theatre repertoire, styles and technique, she helps students select audition songs that showcase their unique voice and talent, appropriate to their level of experience. In addition to coaching services, Eva is available to meet with students and families beginning the college audition process to offer an overview of what to expect from different music/musical theatre degree programs. She also provides resume consultation and prepares students for music theory and sight-singing classes at the college level. Contact eva@evakendrick for rates and packages.   


Philosophy
Eva believes in a natural, healthy, and mindful approach to voice production, both in singing and in speaking. A typical lesson involves exercises in breathing and vocalizations as well as learning and working on repertoire. Eva will recommend specific songs for singers' improvement, and students are also welcome to make suggestions
, because it is important for singers to be excited about their music. Eva enjoys working with students of all ages and experience levels. She normally teaches to students 10 and older but may occasionally make an exception. Music theory and sight-singing/ear-training can be incorporated into voice lessons, but it is usually recommended that additional time is added on to a lesson. 

Performance Opportunities
EKVS holds three annual recitals: a spring recital, a Summer Scenes concert in August and a winter recital. She holds a Senior Showcase for graduating high school seniors and Performance Practice classes. She invites guest speakers to her studio and her a cappella group. Eva is an active member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) and encourages students to participate in local competitions, districts and theatre. She also directs the two a cappella groups: Trills 'n Chills (high school) and Cats & Boots (middle school). Visit this Trills ‘n Chills page for more information on the group.
