Robin offers a safe, comfortable environment where students will work to improve their vocal skills but also have fun and enjoy their passion for singing!!
"Robin Rotela is an excellent voice teacher who knows how to balance the technical with the artistic. She not only has been successful at teaching my daughter the musical skills needed to be a better singer, she also has an excellent ear for the artistic nuances that make the most of my daughter's technical improvements. But perhaps best of all,she does an excellent job of working with my daughter to find music that notonly works as a teaching tool but also keeps my daughter excited to sing."
"After many years of singing professionally, in only a handful of lessons with Robin, my voice has opened up and I have reached a new level of confidence in my instrument. Working with Robin has allowed me to explore new vocal possibilities and has renewed my passion for singing."
"My 14 year old son had the good fortune to take private voice lessons from Robin Rotela for over two years. Robin prepared him for numerous auditions and plays where the vocal work has been quite complex. We saw tremendous growth vocally as a direct result of the work Robin did with him. She is dedicated to helping her students learn, improve and excel vocally in a relaxed and fun atmosphere."
