Vocal Lessons




Welcome!


I am honored to offer Vocal Sessions, Lessons & Coaching for all ages at my studio in Catonsville, Maryland, or ANYWHERE by Skype.

I love teaching people how to sing, and a big part of learning to sing is your comfort level. Therefore, lessons are offered on a flexible basis: weekly, every-other-week, monthly, or just when you'd like a "tune up!" 
Learn to use your body as an 
instrument of sound and energy 
to find and free your voice.

I will teach you how to use your body as an instrument in a healthy and freeing way so that you get the voice that is uniquely yours. I call my method the "Vocal Ladder," and I am always excited to share the joy of singing with kids, seasoned singers and adults who "always wanted to sing."


I also offer a "Vocal Ladder Workshop" for groups. The objective is to learn to use your body as an instrument by learning breathing and relaxation techniques as well as placement of your body and sound to free your voice and help you sing from the heart.
Please contact me to discuss specific details for your group or venue.

Thank you so much!
Love,
Sahffi

WHAT SAHFFI'S STUDENTS SAY:

"Sahffi is an amazing vocal coach! she literally helps you understand that your voice is an instrument, just like a flute or a trombone. Her approach takes a lot of the fear and unease out of learning how to make sound and sing from the heart. She helps you open up and teaches the essential fundamentals of an instrument we were all born with. Deep gratitude for your compassion and care Sahffi!"
- Camille Eroy-Reveles MPH, adult voice student from Kunkawaki Yoga & Music Retreat, 2017

"Sahffi is a talented, fun and loving musician and voice coach. She combines her knowledge of vocal techniques, anatomy and subtle energy in her classes. I highly recommend her to anyone who'd like to work on their vocal abilities, regardless of age and experience." - Isabel, adult voice student via Skype

"I made more progress in one lesson with Sahffi than in months worth of previous lessons with a different instructor. Cool!" - Robin, adult voice student via Skype

"It means a lot that you were right with me throughout our lessons, making me feel at ease and swaying along with me. Stage fright was one of the things that kept me away from doing this earlier. Your encouragement built up my confidence enough to go onstage and finally face the crowd."
- Sharon, in a note to Sahffi regarding her vocal coaching sessions 

"Sahffi is a GENIUS at teaching voice. Three lessons with her changed my singing forever!"
- Farida, adult vocal student

"Sahffi is a natural born teacher. Lessons are enjoyable and productive, and I feel that I've made significant progress with her guidance." - Shannon, adult voice student

"I can't express what an amazing influence you've been to Acey. Being a kid these days is hard and being able to do something so cool is something she'll long remember." - Brian, Acey's dad (voice student)

"As a student of Sahffi's I want to give her the highest recommendation possible. I am miles ahead of where I was just after two and a half months of her lessons and she has honed in on everything I needed to change to bring out a voice I never thought I had. She also is super nice." - Michael, adult voice student 

"You are so inspiring! No one has ever told me I had a nice tone, or a tenor at that. Thanks for being an awesome teacher and making me want to sing more and more!  You rock!" - Scott, adult voice student
