Looking for a voice teacher who understands what it takes to improve your singing? You’ve come to the right place. Not only does Vocal Motion provide you with the best possible voice lessons for adults and kids, but I make sure you or your children will be able to continue growing in the future. I offer all-inclusive singing lessons for kids and adults in the Bay Area, specifically in Marin County, San Francisco, and Sonoma County.
“I have had the professional and personal pleasure of performing with Monica Norcia in Marin musical productions.
Now, some years later, my 12 year old grand-daughter, reaching for the experience of performing with a musical theatre company, began singing lessons with Monica on a weekly basis.
Monica’s gentle, warm, yet musically solid approach to teaching a youngster, encouraged and endeared my grand-daughter to the joy of singing and performing. “
“For many years post childhood, I was very reluctant to sing solo in pubic, even though people would say, “You have a nice voice.” The reason: a brutal dictator of a choral director from high school who made me feel ashamed of my less-than-perfect voice. But I’ve always had a song in my heart and great relationship with lullabies and babies.
Finally, in my “mature years,” I decided enough with the shame and enlisted my dear friend and musical theater collaborator Monica Norcia for voice lessons. Monica’s brightness, cheer and encouragement made all the difference.
She helped me understand my voice as a physical instrument, what it can do and how I can use my whole body to support my singing. Terrified but determined I tackled my first recital and lo and behold, I lived through it and found my public voice once again. Second year recital: I faltered but carried on and found out how to stumble, fall and get back up again. Third year: I somehow landed the role of Golde in “Fiddler on the Roof.” This experience was one of the highlights of my adult life.
I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Monica for her teaching style, technique, encouragement and unwavering commitment to ANY voice, no matter its quality or range. My song isn’t just in my heart anymore, which is good, because now there’s more room in there for Monica.”
“Words cannot express how grateful I am to have Monica as a voice teacher. In addition to dramatically improving my vocal technique, she has provided me with tools to reduce performance anxiety. Monica is very intuitive and approaches music and teaching holistically.
She addresses the physical, psychological and emotional aspects of singing and performance. She customizes every lesson to work on issues as they arise. I have really benefitted from the Alexander Technique and have applied it to improve my singing, guitar playing, and bass playing.
Monica is a truly gifted teacher. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to improve vocal technique for singing or speaking, gain confidence performing and to find more freedom and fluidity while playing an instrument.”
