Bio

Hi there,

Are you a young singer who’s trying to find your own voice? Maybe you’re an intermediate singer who just hasn’t been able to reach the next level of vocal technique. Even if you are an experienced artist who has sung for many years but might need to refresh yourself on the fundamentals, you’ve come to the right place.

Hi there,

Are you a young singer who’s trying to find your own voice? Maybe you’re an intermediate singer who just hasn’t been able to reach the next level of vocal technique. Even if you are an experienced artist who has sung for many years but might need to refresh yourself on the fundamentals, you’ve come to the right place.

I have studied and taught voice for over 15 years and I have extensive training and performance experience with pop, classical, gospel, jazz, and musical theater, as well as art songs. I have a Bachelors of Music from Oberlin Conservatory and have performed all over the country in countless plays, musicals, gospel choirs and have toured overseas in 4 European countries with well known and independent artists.

I’m accepting all levels of students from beginner to advanced. My lessons are highly individualized towards a student’s learning style, vocal abilities, and level of comprehension. My teaching strategy involves assessing your learning and studying styles, addressing your short-term and long-term goals and your vocal ability with you to create a workable action plan which will help empower an individual towards success. I want to work with students who are interested in learning not only how to sing using proper vocal technique, no matter the genre, but who truly want to fully express themselves through music.

I have worked with students age 14 to 18, young adults age 19 to 25, as well as established artists age 35+. I focus on healthy singing that is suitable for every distinct age group, along with methods to help with growth and consistent vocal technique. I also specialize in dramatic work and audition practice for those who are working professionally or preparing for a career in music. I am a firm believer that proper technique and thoughtful vocal maintenance is the key to to creating longevity and overall vocal health and strength. I strive to address any feelings of tension, anxiety or stress with compassion because my students' comfort is very important to me. If there i

Subjects

Music

Ear Training,

Ear Training

I have taught Ear Training for over 10 years. Hearing and identifying pitches is not always as easy as it seems. It requires a good ear and good relative pitch. While perfect pitch is rare, almost anyone can be taught to improve their musical hearing and learn how to identify when they are singing sharp, flat or off key. My goal is always to empower and enlighten my students so that they can sing with great confidence and proficiency.
Songwriting,

Songwriting

I have been writing songs since I was a freshmen is high school. Songwriting is one of the intimate forms of self expression and should be treated as such. Because it is so personal, students must be made to feel completely at ease especially when they aren't as confident about their abilities. I make sure that my correction is always constructive and compassionate. When a student looks at me with a sense of understanding or has that "Aha moment" , that is one of the greatest rewards of being a teacher.
Voice (Music)

Voice (Music)

When I began studying voice at the tender age of 15, my teacher told me that I had the potential to sing on the world stage. I had no idea at the time how right he was. Music has been a life long journey for me. It has also been of the greatest gifts that's ever been given to me. I want my students to enjoy the process of learning proper breath support, tonal resonance, good posture, and dramatic interpretation and performance skills.

Kind, Warm Hearted and Knowledgeable Tutor

Rashida is my new favorite person. I have grown up TERRIFIED to sing in front of other people and Rashida creates such a welcoming environment that I was able to step out of my fear for the lesson. She gives the space to grow comfortably without judgement or harsh criticism, just technique and skill. Rashida gave my knowledge of singing a complete 180. She helped me to practice a technique I had never tried that really helped me figure out my own areas of improvement. My first voice lesson was an experience I will never forget!

Madi, 1 lesson with Rashida

very knowledgeable teacher!

Me and Rashida had a great first lesson. She helped me overcome my nerves of singing in front of someone for the first time. She was open with a non-judgment free zone. We worked on a bunch of breathing techniques for me to hold over until my next lesson with her. 10/10 recommend! Cant wait until our next lesson.

A wonderful vocal coach!

She had taught me a lot of new things about singing, music, and about my voice. She has taught me a few vocal exercises and I can already hear and feel an improvement. She is a wonderful person and teacher, I can’t wait to improve more and more with her help:)

Knowledgeable, Warm and Welcoming Tutor!

I've only had one lesson so far, but it was a wonderful experience. Rashida listened to my expectations and provided me with information that was needed. She was very thorough and helped me understand some fundamentals. I was nervous as some may feel when it comes to singing in front of others. However, she helped me to relax and enjoy the experience. I can't wait for my next lesson!

Jonathan, 1 lesson with Rashida

Comfortable to speak with

Rashida was able to correct my ideas of what singing really is, within the first ten minutes. She explained things simply and I never felt bored or intimidated. The lessons feel relaxed but also very professional at the same time. I improved already after two lessons, and I plan on taking many more lessons with her.
