A Chat with Petersen Voice Studio
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Petersen Voice studio is a relaxed, and encouraging environment to come and explore your voice safely while having fun! My first priority is on the student and their experience. It’s very important that everyone feel they can explore their voice without fear.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
No course materials are required, but students are always welcome to bring sheet music or tracks in that they are comfortable with. I do play the piano, and can accompany in most circumstances.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have been singing since I was two years old, teaching private voice for 18 years. I come from a very musical family, where all kinds of music were respected and played. This gives me a broad knowledge and understanding of style and individuality in singers.
What do you love most about your job?
My most rewarding experiences have been helping students find their voices, even those who thought they were not ‘singers’ to begin with. One particularly rewarding student only wanted to learn to sing for his daughter’s bat mitzvah, and in several months he was able to do so with success!
