I am excited about your interest to train your voice! This process began for me in my early teens, and I still enjoy singing more than four decades later. My knowledge and experience helps me identify how to sculpt voices of all ages and training levels.
Whether you are singing in the school chorus, local choir, or in a hard rock or punk band, you can benefit from vocal training, and the bel canto technique that I focus on will give your voice clarity and longevity.
Nancy Badger specializes in the classic Bel Canto vocal technique perfected by Italian opera circles over hundreds of years and brought to Hollywood by famed voice coach, Ron Anderson. This technique is applicable to those singing pop, rock, blues, jazz, or opera, who are looking to make sure their voice lasts through their entire set, through a tour or even a lifetime. She also works with those looking to improve their speaking voice for business or presentation purposes.
After 10 years of studying with Ron, Nancy has been teaching voice and piano for the past 15 years in the Los Angeles area.
Nancy also offers beginning and advanced piano lessons.
Private piano lessons are also available for students of all ages and levels of achievement, from young children to adults. Traditional piano instruction is incorporated generally using classical music as the basis. Individual piano instruction provides students with the skills required to learn an increasingly more difficult and demanding repertoire. Private piano instruction is available in increments of 15, 30 or 60 minutes. Students in piano must have access to a piano (with a minimum of 66 keys) for daily practice. In general, practice every day is required.

In my 30-plus years in the music industry, I’ve found only two great vocal coaches… Nancy gives you the tools, confidence and techniques to make you a great singer. ~Larry Cox [READ THE FULL TESTIMONIAL]
Nancy was so helpful! I woke up with a horrible case of laryngitis and as a public speaker needed my voice ready for filming and with 4 days to spare. Nancy was able to give me tips on how to quicken the healing process, exercises to strengthen my vocal cords and also help prevent this from happening to me in the future. My voice was back and ready for the camera in three days! I’ve already given her info to several friends. She is amazing! ~Lesley Logan
