Pro Singing Lessons for Kids & Adults in Wilmington
The students participating in the Pro Singing Lessons Program In Studio or Online range from the youngest student of 8 years old with the oldest student of 77. I have the privileged of working with a diverse group of singers within all Musical Genres, from those wanting to explore and try the idea of singing, to touring artists fine tuning their craft, to those who are challenged with being tone deaf, those who have partial vocal cord paralyzation, as well as younger and older students going through a voice change.
“Open Your Voice To Every Possibility“
"I came to record in Wilmington and I was referred to Nyla / Wilmington Voice Coach to help prepare me so my recording session would go efficiently and well. Even in a short amount of time, Nyla was able to assess my voice using methodologies and then translate those findings into voice strengthening activities that I could immediately implement. Her studio is a beautiful, calming environment. Best of all, her warm, easy-going personality and kindness put me at ease. Nyla is clearly passionate about her work and takes it seriously. This translates to highly personalized care for her students. It was a privilege to work with her for this project."
Jodie Madison, Vocalist-Actress
"I have seen my daughter Madison grow so much just in the short time she has been working with Nyla. She has helped her tremendously with her confidence. I see a different child and can hear how much she has improved. I admire anyone that is able to teach a person and have the ability to bring out the best in that person in such a positive growing experience and watch them have so much fun doing it, as in Madisons' case. Nyla has a special gift."
Stephanie Spratley, Parent
“I learned a lot from working with Nyla. I have been singing all of my life but had just recently broken into songwriting and local performing when I contacted her. She gave me a lot of great advice on how to train my voice and access my best sound. I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know about my own voice until I started working with Nyla. Every exercise has a purpose and it doesn’t take long to hear a difference in quality. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to improve their voice, no matter their experience or genre.”
Cara Schauble, Local Musician-Songwriter
"Three years ago, I had my thyroid removed which resulted in an impairment in my ability to sing. After a year of healing, I began vocal training with Nyla in hopes of regaining some of what I had lost. Nyla has helped me strengthen my voice and increase my range beyond what it was prior to my surgery. She continues to encourage me to reach beyond my comfort zone, helping me build back my confidence as a vocalist. Thank you Nyla for giving me my voice back!"
Dianne Marchese, Vocalist/Actress
“The awakening of my possibilities vocally have come from the best vocal trainer, hands down. Nyla takes the time and has exuded confidence into me, helping me reach levels that I thought weren't possible vocally. I am forever grateful for my time spent at Wilmington Voice Coach.”
Gene Gregory, Singer-Songwriter
“Nyla is a real deal professional and has connected with me like no one else has making positive progress in improving my voice in ways I never knew I could. She opened both my mind and voice. She has helped me realize possibilities and reach them.”
Tom Pirkey, Singer-Songwriter
"My experience with Nyla is absolutely wonderful. She is extremely knowledgeable and shared a wealth of her knowledge with me, even in my first session. She will give you the tools you need to fine tune your voice and help you work on areas that need improvement. She also helps you to set goals, which is very important. In addition to all of this, she is also very kind, compassionate, encouraging and patient. She makes each session a lot of fun. Your voice is an instrument, and in order to be the best you can be, you need to exercise it! I enjoy my time with Nyla and I trust her ability to teach in the best way possible, I'm confident you will, too!"
Marianne Voska, Praise/Worship Vocalist
"Training with Nyla has been one of the best decisions I've made. She has helped me find the confidence I need to achieve my goals, in a judgement free and comfortable studio. After only a few sessions the results I achieved were remarkable. I recommend Wilmington Voice Coach to anyone who is looking to explore and expand their vocal possibilities. She truly cares about her students’ success and will encourage and motivate you to reach your goals!"
Erica Giffen, Character Actress, Singer-Actor
“Nyla took a very professional approach with testing me where I was, and then working very specifically to achieve my personal goals through supportive breath and vocal techniques, helping to improve delivery, power, vocal range, and giving me customized follow up exercises to take home."
Jason Andre, Lead Singer for The Midatlantic
“My son had started taking an interest in musical theater and auditioning for local productions. I came across Nyla and how fortunate we feel to have found her! Garrett’s singing has improved remarkably since he has been training with her. His range has expanded without straining and his projection is amplified. He also has a confidence about him while singing that I have not seen before. I’m just thrilled! I am also impressed with the education on voice anatomy, sound and breathing that Garrett is being exposed to. I know that this experience will serve him well throughout life no matter what direction his interests take him."
Sara Reider, Parent
"I love training my voice with Nyla because she teaches me how to project, breathe right and so many other things in an easy way. She is super nice and is always encouraging me to do better and better. I try to use what she teaches me each day when I practice and I know it will help me in auditions. I get excited to see her each week because I really like being around her. She’s got great energy!" Garrett Reider, Singer-Actor
"I loved my voice lessons with Nyla! My main goals were to learn how to strengthen my voice and to sound less nasal. She taught me breathing and vocal techniques that really helped my voice to feel stronger and more connected. I would highly recommend Nyla as a voice coach!"
Susan Barnes, Praise/Worship Vocalist
Absolutely! There is no obligation to add on any follow up lessons following your foundational lesson. If you decide to continue with follow up lessons, you will have the opportunity to save $5 off each lesson when you take advantage of a vocal package of 4 lessons at a time. You can learn more about the rates under the rate section.
In the initial Foundational Lesson we will go over what your goals are and what you are looking to achieve. You will be given a vocal training folder that includes anatomy of the voice along with vocal health tips, a customized exercise training sheet, as well as customized vocal training scales based on your vocal range for practice. In your initial Foundational Lesson, you will learn about larynx positioning and how to smooth out the transition between chest and head vocal registers to develop what is known as middle (the mix) voice, understand the utilization of articulation along with voice placement and positioning techniques with an emphasis on diaphragmatic breath support for strength, stamina, power, and projection. You will then have the opportunity to progress on to weekly follow up lessons to continue to condition, expand, and strengthen the voice, and receive updated vocal exercise sheets along with the updated customized vocal scales as you progress, expand, and grow to the next level.
Students usually come once a week. Depending if the student has an upcoming performance or audition, will determine if the student will need to come more often in the week. The schedule is very flexible and I am more than happy to accommodate the students needs for scheduling. The studio is open Tuesday-Friday from 10am-8pm, and Saturday from 10am-6pm.
A 24 hour notice is required to avoid being charged for a booked lesson. However, family emergencies, sickness, and any other matters beyond your control will be honored and there will be no charge for a last minute cancel.

The studio is a fun and focused space to explore, expand, and grow in an encouraging relaxed, effective learning environment while supporting the goals the student is looking to reach.
Any student under the age of 18 is required to be accompanied by a parent/guardian at the initial introduction. This gives the opportunity for both the student and parent/guardian to become acquainted with the studio environment as well as myself and coaching approach.
Personal privacy is important with each student during their lesson to guarantee pure focus in a tension free environment. Therefore, the studio policy allows only the student whom is scheduled for the lesson to be in the studio during the lesson, with the exception of a parent/guardian on the initial first lesson. All other persons are welcome to wait in the waiting area during the lesson time.
A 24 hour notice of cancellation is required to avoid being charged for a scheduled lesson. Unless a personal matter, family emergency, or sickness arises. This allows time to rebook the scheduled slot for students waiting for an opening.
