"Vicki Shaghoian has changed my life. Her knowledge and intuition- at once simple and complex- have allowed me get out of my own way and find access my voice with deep expression, ease, and joy. I use her exercises daily, and her warmups are essential to my preshow routine as a performer. A true master!"

"...Ms. Verson, so affecting in “Indecent” and “The Lucky Ones,” steal the show..."  (Collective Rage) NYTimes

Private Voice Lessons and Vocal Coachings

A one-on-one private voice lesson provides you personalized attention to coach a role, prepare for an audition, or refine an aspect of your vocal technique. You are encouraged to video and audio record your lessons so you can hear the difference from beginning to end and write down positive directives that worked for you.


The goal of Vicki's work is for you to fully understand your voice so that you can work professionally without a coach.

Audition & MFA Audition Coaching

With 14 years of experience teaching the MFA actors at the Yale School of Drama and coaching clients through Broadway auditions and callbacks, Vicki will work with you to dive deeply and truthfully into your monologues, songs, and sides. The goal is to bring out your authenticity in each piece and give you the confidence to do your best when you walk into the room. 

Group Lessons and Classes

Group Lessons and Classes are a great way to build a strong foundation and practice performance skills. This also makes studying voice more affordable if you're between gigs. Working on rep in front of your peers keeps you on your toes and helps you learn the mechanics of voicing at an accelerated rate. When you're in the hot seat it's hard to absorb everything a teacher is saying. When you're able to sit down, relax, and listen to your peers you can better feel the triggers and mechanics of what they're doing and relate it to your own technique and instruction.

Guest Masterclass Teacher

Vicki is available to teach guest workshops and masterclasses at studios and universities. Topics include: Vocal Technique for All Levels, Performance, and Audition Technique for Monologues and Songs.

 There is no speaking voice, singing voice, head voice, or chest voice. It is all ONE voice -- your authentic voice. In this studio, you learn how to access your authentic voice and vocal truth. Once you access your authentic voice you can sing anything! Learning to sing in a new genre of music just means applying the stylistic rules of the genre to what you already have. Everyone has the capacity to sing Opera, Jazz, Broadway, Gospel, Pop, Rock, R&B, Folk, and Rap.
