Ms. Hilderbrand is a member of the National Association of Teaches of Singing (NATS).

Everybody needs to start somewhere and for many in Seattle, my North Seattle studio is that place. For those that have never (or hardly ever) sung before, this is a great place to start. I want to make sure that you are singing correctly and having fun. Try this low-pressure approach to improving your voice.

Beginning students will focus on:
  • Matching Pitch!
  • Reading Rhythms!
  • Supporting Their Sound!
  • Choosing Music For Your Strengths!

Take your skills to the next level by improving your technique while working on your performance skills. These students will participate in a quarterly recital or equivalent performance opportunity.

Intermediate Students:
  • Expand Your Range!
  • Take Control Of Your Breath!
  • Work On Phrasing And Performance!
  • Learn About Melodic Progression!
Advanced Students:
  • Ensure Your Vocal Safety!
  • Increase Longevity!
  • Improve Your Technique!

  • "From the start, Carla was genuinely interested in my progress as a vocalist. I sing in a rock and roll band, but Carla is classically trained and can teach students interested in any genre. I learned valuable techniques for keeping my vocal chords healthy and my high range jumped up about two steps! For speed, Carla gets a 3 because a steady pace is a good thing. Rushing it will slow overall progress in the long run. Punctuality is up to the student, but Carla is always there, so she gets a 5. Everything else is top notch on her part. She will work with you on your goals as a singer and she will make the lessons fun. I strongly recommend her teaching." -Joey
  • "I have been having a great time learning from Carla. She is very, very patient as I struggle (at times) to go forward into a new experience. She intuitively understands where I am as I go along, is very positive in rewarding my accomplishments. Homework is pertinent to what I wish to accomplish and she suggests things like going to Compline and the opera to more fully grasp the nature of music. Sort of like a one person field trip! I continue to look forward to each new lesson and I feel very positive about myself and my abilities because of her teaching method, personality, and her complete grasp of the subject matter." - Mike
