Natasha Yufe
Voice Teacher
Nipomo, California

The method of singing that I teach is Bel Canto which means “Beautiful Song” in Italian. It is the kind of training that lasts forever so I call it Voice Training for Life. It is the only way to sing correctly.

The method itself is a very natural means of obtaining the maximum tone from the voice utilizing the body at all times. In addition to the vocal training and voice lessons, I encourage the students to use healthful means to achieve the maximum benefit from this Bel Canto technique. It is never too late to learn to sing correctly.

For these singing lessons, the student will learn proper posture, breathing techniques, correct placement of the tone and many other aids that are ever so necessary to carry then through elementary and on to advanced singing as long as they wish. Come and see me - it can be fun! I look forward to speaking with you!

In addition to teaching voice lessons privately for several years with many students winning or placing in competitions, I've taught at a local Jr. College, at a recreation department for over nine years and am currently teaching an evening class for adults at an adult session in a nearby community. In addition, I continue to teach students throughout the Orange County area.
