"There are few artists in this world who have the passion and spirit that Greta exhibits.
Every note, every phrase, ever nuance is performed with emotion and musical artistry. Greta is as confident on stage as she is in the voice class.
Again, a beautiful strength is her ability to share her musical experience and her techniques."

— Frank DeMiero
Conductor / Artistic Director
DeMiero Jazz Fest

Lessons $70/hour or Package of 4 lessons for $240. ($40 savings)
I teach from my home in West Seattle. All levels. Men and women ages 12 and up. We work on repertoire, phrasing, scat, rhythm and improvisation as well as the proper vocal techniques of breathing, support and range. I help students develop a practice routine that is fun, builds strength and produces results. Many of my students have gone on to work locally and many have won awards at various vocal competitions.


Private lessons may be scheduled with me directly by contacting me at You are encouraged to join my student- base mailing list to receive my monthly newsletter with available lesson times, upcoming clinics and performances.

We work using the jazz standards from the Great American Songbook (see list for ideas). These songs can be modified to each student's key and tempo and stlyle preference. I also have the digital technology to remove the vocals from some existing commercial cd's to make custom rehearsal cd's.

Practice Notes:

Using my unique 6 tiered practice technique, I will help you understand how to organize your practice time and see real progress.

Clinic Topics covered in private lessons:

If you've been to my clinic's before you know that topics covered can range from singing the blues to stylizing ballads. These and many others from my Clinics page can be requested as subjects of focus in your private lessons.

Also, for those singers wishing to pursue a career in music I share vocational advice from my experience in many areas of the music business: getting gigs, private parties, night clubs, recording demos, advertising work, etc.


As an incentive to practice and stay focused I believe it's important to have "stage time". I schedule, every 6 months, for my regular private students a cost-free performance at Tula's jazz club, with my band! To participate simply set up some regular (approx every 2 weeks) private lessons, and remind me you'd like to get a performance scheduled.
