This is "Trampita"




Raquela hopes you are not allergic to cats. (Raquela has two Miniature Schnauzers and a bird too) Since 8/30/2016, Trampita was diagnosed with chronic 'inner ear infection', but that still hasn't stopped her from assistanting Raquela. Here's what you need to know: She wants only one thing... to be petted. She loves listening to students sing the "Many Mumbling Mice" song. Beware! She will test you and try to distract you while you vocalize. (And don't tell Raquela, but Trampita is really the Boss.)

*Seeking serious students only! is home to "VOICE with Raquela". Award winning actress/singer, Raquela is one of the Big Valley’s most sought-after professional voice teachers. She has worked with huge stars on Broadway that including Cloris Leachman, Kristin Chenoweth, Norm Lewis along 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. She originated principle roles in the Off-Broadway hit, BAT BOY-THE MUSICAL. During her 20-year stint with musicals, there is just not enough room here to describe everything and everyone she has worked with in New York. 

In 2011, 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.

Currently, Raquela teaches from home, full time. Using her training in Bel Canto and 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. (With a variety of lesson options available)

Even if you have never sung before or think you have no talent for singing, you CAN sing! 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!
