DELICA CASTANEDA

Voice 801-661-1776

Delica grew up in a musical family and performed locally in various community theatre venues including the Messiah and performed with the Oratorio Society of Utah. She enjoyed performing and recording with pianist, Dennis Nichols. She trained with Katrina Nelson and received her certification in the Debratone method, with Debra Bonner. She worked side by side with Debra who has trained with some of the top vocal pedagogues of the 20th century including Seth Riggs, Richard Miller, Jan Sullivan, Oren Brown, and professionals from the University of Michigan, Leonard Johnson and John McCullum. Debra has also trained with Dr. Vernon Woolf, one of the leading psychologists in the world, and has discovered how negative emotions influence ones ability to sing. And by clearing negative emotions one can clear problems in the voice. One will have the ability to freely express ones heart in the spoken word as well as song.

The Debratone method will help heal damaged vocal cords and help one sing freely, naturally, and without strain. You will learn how to coordinate your vocal muscles correctly to eliminate vocal problems and then how to strengthen those muscles so that you will also have the ability to sing from very soft to very loud with a beautiful natural tone seamlessly from the chest voice to the head voice and even extending into the superhead voice, notes well beyond high C connected. You will develop your creative expression and flexibility so you can sing with freedom!

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.
