An Invitation from Studio Founder Michelle Kopper


Cultivating your voice is one key to unlocking the essence of who you are. The process of developing your voice also helps you become more fully present and able to bring all of your self to any human interaction. From personal relationships, to presentations, to public speaking, to collaborative conversations with co-workers as well as auditioning and performing -- cultivating the ability to stay connected to your breath, embrace the sound of your voice and come from a place of joy in the presence of of others (especially while singing!) fosters an elemental shift in how you're perceived and can enhance your confidence exponentially. 
Is it time for you to grow?


Summer Class Opportunities

If you haven't done so already, now is the time to reserve your spot in our summer classes. There have been some changes to our summer class schedule. Between July 6th and August 12th, new and continuing students can choose between Monday evening classes from 6:30 - 9 PM and Wednesday evening classes from 5 - 7:30 PM. 

These intimate class sessions are created to build confidence, and inspire and empower you to fully embrace and cultivate the power of your voice. They are specifically designed for all levels of experience and all styles of music. Everyone has an individual coaching session in the group setting during every class session. Class is facilitated by studio founder Michelle Kopper and accompanied by a top-notch professional accompanist. Doing this individual work in the group setting allows the work to meet you where you are in terms of experience and ability while also allowing you to learn from the experience of others and explore the many aspects of actual live performance. 

Summer Open Mics Start @ 6p!!!

Studio Open Mic is an opportunity for any singer to show up and sing any song he or she may desire, with a first-rate accompanist, in a friendly and supportive environment. In the spirit of the classic New York piano bars, all you need to do is show up with your sheet music and plop it down on the piano – first come, first served. Unlike other piano bars, this open mic is not focused on late night carousing, but rather on providing an all-ages space for developing your craft, for no matter how much you practice on your own, there is no substitute for working with an unknown accompanist in front of strange faces. Your peers, there for the same reason, will provide a warm and forgiving audience for your risk. Suggested $5 per song and $5 cover for non-singing guests. 

Mont Chris Hubbard is a composer, performer, music director, and accompanist of countless auditions. He received a 2013 Portland Area Musical Theatre Award for his music direction of the Broadway Rose’s Little Shop of Horrors. He has also released three CDs of solo piano improvisations. He is the creator and host of Portland's most endearingly strange variety show, The Mont Chris Hubbard Bonus Show, and hosts a weekly late night piano bar.
