ElkGroveSings.com is home to "VOICE with Raquela". Award winning singer/Actress, Raquela Burt is one of Northern California's most sought-after professional voice teachers. She has been seen with huge stars on the Broadway stage that included Cloris Leachman, Kristin Chenoweth, Norm Lewis, to mention just a few. During her 20-year stint on the New York stage she had the privilege of working with legendary composers like Steven Schwartz, Steven Sondheim and so many more that simply can't fit in here. She was seen on Broadway playing leading roles like the ‘Gypsy-Acid Queen’ in The Who's TOMMY and ‘Julie’ in the original revival of SHOW BOAT and she originated roles in the Off-Broadway hit, BAT BOY-THE MUSICAL.
In 2011, as listed in Wikipedia, Raquela was recognized as the “BEST VOCAL COVER TRACK EVER” by Taylor Dayne herself for Raquela’s remake of Taylor’s 1987 classic hit, TELL IT TO MY HEART. This classic cover charted the TOP 40 Dance tracks of the year (2011) and it beat out Raquela's personal best of charting for more than 25 weeks straight.
Currently, Raquela teaches from home, full time, privately. Using her training in Bel Canto to CVT (Complete Vocal Technique), she teaches a timeless technique with a fresh twist that enables her to work with singers of all skill levels, ages, backgrounds and genres.
Even if you have never sung before or think you have no talent for singing, you CAN! EVERYONE needs to learn to sing! Yes, there are those who were born to sing and that gift should be guided constantly and cautiously, but on hine sight, EVERYONE should learn to sing no matter what. It’s like... everyone should get a good night’s sleep, get regular exercise, eat healthy and.... sing regularly! These are all a part of having a full and healthy life. Learning to sing is not only about singing scales... yes, you read that correctly. Give me the opportunity to teach you my secrets and my technique and you'll see what I mean. It's all about awareness and confidence.
So, what do you say? Come on over! Let's get started!
