Voice & Piano Instructor
Emily Stratton graduated from Westfield State University with a degree in Vocal Performance after carrying a passion for music her whole life. Her love for music began as a young child when she taught herself how to play Somewhere Over The Rainbow on the piano by ear. She then began taking piano lessons and singing on her own which fueled her passion.
Her love for voice and what it is capable of continued to grow throughout high school and college. It wasn’t until college when she first started taking voice lessons that she discovered her own vocal habits and realized how important vocal health is. Her senior year she started to become a vocal coach and help out her peers that were involved in the Musical Theater program with their voices. She then developed a new passion of helping people find confidence and ease when using their voice.
Her ultimate goal as a vocal coach is to provide a fun learning environment for those who want to grow their voice, release tension when phonating, and feel confident with their own unique voice. Singing is a very vulnerable act and she wants to make sure that students feel that they can achieve any goals they set their minds to.
