Singing Lessons

Ready to Act on
your Dream to Sing Better?

I've been a voice teacher in Edmonds since 2009, and a performer for over 30 years (scroll down to watch me sing).

If you want singing lessons to:

  • Learn basic techniques
  • Understand breath support
  • Correct bad habits
  • Practice favorite songs or
  • Prep for auditions

Let's meet for a Free Assessment.

What's the Free Assessment for? Tell me what you need help with, get feedback on your singing and ask your questions. I'll also tell you what we'll focus on. Make sure I'm the right teacher before we get started.

Malya is exceptionally skilled as a singing teacher and audition prep coach. She uses a very methodical approach to singing instruction and is also highly skilled in coaching students to prepare both monologues and songs for auditions. She sets high expectations, provides frequent, direct feedback and allows the student to quickly respond and improve. She is very supportive throughout the entire process.

Music Teacher

I'm a music teacher of guitar, piano and group classes. I went to see Malya and in just a few lessons, she completely helped me turn around my technique. She is a total pro and I can't recommend her highly enough!

I chose Malya originally because of her instructional credentials compared to others. However, because I'm a baritone, in the beginning I was concerned about taking instruction from a higher, female voice.  This has not been a relevant concern.  Malya's ability to watch me, understand what is occurring, and instruct me about improvements has been superb.  Working with her enriches my life.

Malya is enthusiastic, knowledgable, challenging and inspiring!
Every lesson is different and personalized to uncover my own voice. (Plus she's simply a fun, top-notch human being!)

I received an abundance of singing improvement techniques offered by Malya.
I am a much better singer today for having taken Malya's comprehensive singing instructions seriously and applying them.

Professional Speaker

I hired Malya to coach my daughter when she was trying out for the musical Grease. We had a wonderful experience and she received the lead role of Sandy.  Her style is unique; it's all experiential. You learn how to get better by trying new things, adjusting, trying again, making mistakes and trying again. She is very positive, upbeat and fun!

About Your Teacher

I was the kid who sang while waiting for the bus, playing in my room, or on the playground.  I learned guitar and piano so that I could write songs and set my thoughts and feelings to music. The passion for singing stayed with me my entire childhood and adult life.

As I grew older I struggled with stage fright. Fear closed my throat and shut down my breathing. But I worked through it, and went on to college and beyond to study voice and pursue what I loved to do.  I've had a long career now as a singer.

About 14 years ago, I decided to become a teacher.  My new task was not just to teach what I knew, but to learn about updated techniques because my students wanted to sing pop, rock, indie, gospel, and musical theatre and needed help understanding the parts of their voices that weren't working. I attended workshops and conferences and took courses to learn how to help them.

My students have won auditions, singing competitions, joined talent shows, gone into bands and joined choirs.

But many just want to sing better, feel more confident and understand the basic foundations of singing. My belief is that it doesn't matter how good you are. Sing anyways!

...and yes, the Pandemic shut me down for two years (online singing lessons were okay, but not great) yet with Covid receding, and everyone vaxxed and boosted (required) my studio has reopened. I'm looking forward to meeting you!
