Express, Create, Grow, Sing!


Kootenay Voice Academy offers private in person and online lessons in voice, theory, musicianship, dramatic character development, and public speaking/speech arts.

30, 45, and 60 minute times are available - Monday - Friday between 12:30pm and 7pm.

Kootenay Voice Academy is a warm and inclusive space to help students feel comfortable exploring new ideas and develop confidence. 

Students aged 8 and over - of all ranges of ability and experience - explore and unlock new sounds and abilities at Kootenay Voice Academy.  Study can be very structured or very loose, depending on the goals.  Since singing is proven to have a positive impact on your mental and physical health, many people attend lessons for reasons other than musical development. No matter how you feel coming into the studio - all students report feeling uplifted afterwards. 

  • Do you want to sing a song for your family that you feel amazing about?

  • Do you want to be the star at the next karaoke night with your friends? 

  • Do you just want to sing the national anthem at the next hockey game and not have people shush you?? 

You've come to the right place!!  

Students at Kootenay Voice Academy learn about the three basic pillars of vocal production:  air/space/energy.  We explore healthy, sustainable sounds and how style is applied differently to suit the demands of expression in each piece of music explored.  Knowledge is applied into all genres/styles of music and students are encouraged to broaden their musical horizons by trying new things. 

Recital opportunities are provided for singers who want to develop performance skills,  both through in house recitals and opportunities for public performance in Kootenay Festival of the Arts and with the BC Registered Music Teacher's Association, Trail/Castlegar branch.  Students who wish to pursue structured study through the Royal Conservatory of Music/Conservatory Canada are also welcome, as are students looking for university entrance training.
