Voice 801-694-0285

Mary Dupaix received her baccalaureate degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Utah where she studied with Dr. Carol Ann Allred. Prior to attending the University of Utah she studied voice with David Schmidt. Music was a tradition in her family and each of her siblings grew up playing an instrument. Her chosen instrument was the clarinet. She started playing clarinet in 3rd grade and continued with it through high school. However, singing was the thing she most enjoyed. Her senior year in High School found her involved in band as well as being a member of both the A'Cappella Choir and Madrigals. After high school she sang with the Mormon Youth Symphony and Chorus and the Utah Oratorio Society. Besides singing, she enjoys theater and has played small roles in Community Theater as well as in the Utah Lyric Opera's productions of Don Giovanni and Suor Angelica.

 I help my students discover and develop their own sound and use their own natural voice. I show them ways of using the voice that are new, adding on to what they already know, to make confident musicians who sing with ease and power. 

I love aiding in the discovery process and being a part of the journey of curiosity my students embark on to identify their own natural voice. Together we cultivate musical skills which uncover this hidden gem and transform it into an impressive instrument of expression.

JEANNE LANCASTER

Voice 385-202-3064

I love the gift of song. I received my Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance back East from George Mason University in 2007, and graduated Summa Cum Laude. I have sung at the Department of State in Washington, DC, as well as several competitions. Since moving to Utah in 2008 I have studied both with Dr. Carol Ann Allred and Dr. Arden Hopkin. In 2009 I became a member of the Volunteer Music Crew at Primary Children's Medical Center, and have had the wonderful experience of singing for patients and their families on a regular basis. I have thoroughly enjoyed performing in several local productions, my favorites being Savior of the World, the role of Mabel in Pirates of Penzance, and Rapunzel in Into the Woods. I love teaching voice, from Classical to Music Theater, and believe everyone who wants to sing should be given the opportunity. I especially enjoy teaching beginning singers and those who experience performance anxiety. I offer a warm and friendly environment to help singers become more confident in their own gift of song.
