Talia Fuchs is a cross-genre vocalist, improviser, and theatre artist. She holds a B.Mus.

As an actor, she has 10+ years of theatrical training in New York, Los Angeles, and Montreal. She has also taught early childhood music classes for over 3 years.

My lessons are based on the joyful exploration of sound, rooted in a holistic understanding of the voice and body, and focused on the individual needs of each student. Having suffered a vocal injury at a young age, I help students create a healthy and sustainable sound, while having a good time! Drawing on my background in theatre and dance as well as my extensive musical training, my goal is to foster the relationship between mind, body, and instrument to help students discover their unique voice and artistry.
I integrate aspects of Estill and Somatic Voice Work into lessons.
In a typical lesson, we'll work on:
– Posture & physicality
– Sound creation
– Style & interpretation of songs
I also believe in strengthening musicianship in tandem with building the voice- depending on the desires and goals of the student. such as reading music, learning to recognize harmonies, rhythm, and learning music by ear, and improvisation.
