Justin offers vocal training to singers of all ages, ability levels, and voice types, with an emphasis on opera, art song, early music, and musical theater. Everyone has a voice worth developing in lessons, and most students find their skill and confidence increase dramatically in the first few months of training. Vocal training can improve voice control in many areas of life, from public speaking, to interviews, to interpersonal communication. In 20 years of teaching, Justin's students have sung with Chanticleer, the San Francisco Symphony Chorus, Opera San Jose, Philharmonia Baroque, American Bach Soloists, Minnesota Opera, and many other companies. Former students are currently studying at the San Francisco Conservatory, NYU, Berklee College of Music, USC, and Oberlin, and past students have gone on to major conservatories and universities in this country and abroad.

Justin Montigne's voice studio is currently full. Please contact Justin to learn more about lessons or to be placed on a wait list. Thank you, and I look forward to working with you!

Vocal Technique, Musicianship, Performance. 1 hour lessons are available at weekly, biweekly, and monthly intervals. Regularity, more than frequency, is the key to vocal progress.
