Quality Vocal Instruction - Lessons for all Levels and all Ages

I believe in making use of the latest scientific research on the voice as well as the traditional time-tested Bel Canto Method as a basis for my teaching. Bel Canto is a time-honnored school and vocal training system which when developed, allows the greatest ease in executing long languid phrases, agility and expansive vocal range.

I emphasize a solid, common sense technique to establish healthy vocal habits that will allow the singer to enjoy the art of singing over a life-time. I don't believe in teaching young children to sing pop. It is too easy to permanently damage the voice.

Building on this foundation, the student can then develop their unique path of expression. In addition, I enjoy the challenge of nursing and restoring ailing voices back to health. Explore the other pages on this site to learn more of my philosophies and policies.

Maureen Chowning

Location: Palo Alto CA,
(Easy commute via 101 and 280, Close to El Camino Real.)

Ideal for students from Menlo Park, Atherton, Redwood City, Mountain View, Sunnyvale, Cupertino and beyond. Some of my students are from out-of-state or overseas.

Also, enjoy my other website:

"Maureen Chowning is a fantastic performing artist and consummate teacher, and a lovely person to boot!"

Her instruction in vocal technique is rigorous and informed by her understanding of vocal health and physiology. She takes pride in nursing ailing voices back to health. Maureen teaches a broad repertoire, ranging from early music to opera, art songs from various European countries, and Music Theatre.

She will ask that you practice daily and do your homework; in return, she will prepare you well for performances, including the annual recital that she organizes for her students in her own home. The stage fright that most experience on these occasions is amply compensated by her comedic virtuoso appearances of Mme Tra-Lá-La-La!"
