Reveal Your Hidden Instrument

This is the page description.

—  Sing  —

Are you a musician? Are you a singer? OR are you a musician and a singer? You can be!!

Has anyone told you that you need to work on your singing?
Worse, has anyone told you that you can’t (or shouldn’t) sing?!?

Has your voice left you feeling less than or inadequate on stage?

Have you turned down a gig because it might require you to feature your singing?

Have you “run out of voice” in the middle of a gig?

Maybe it’s time for you to explore your voice and reveal your “hidden” instrument.


We’ll work together to figure out your vocal goals and find a plan of action. Your voice and your goals are most important. You will be challenged with honesty and support. You will be encouraged and given the tools to succeed. You will find that your voice can be everything you want it to be.

Trust your vocal sound.

Play with communication.

Sing to your maximum potential.

Yes, serious work happens with singing coach Rachel at Velarde Voice, Scottsdale, AZ

Initial fit session:

Before we commit to work together, we need to know that we’re on the same page. Contact Rachel to schedule an initial 30-minute session so that we can discuss your vocal goals and establish common expectations for our time together. When you sign up for lessons at Velarde Voice, you make a significant investment in your voice and you deserve to know up front that we will be able to work together as a team to meet your vocal goals. The initial session fee is $85 and an invoice will be sent to your email, payable upon receipt, immediately after the session time is agreed upon. This payment is required in order to fully reserve your appointment time. If payment is not received within 24-hours of making the appointment, the session will be cancelled.

Regular tuition:

Each 3-month subscription entitles you to nine 50-minute sessions, printing/copying services, consistent updates to available studio technology, outside session time spent on research, and continuing education that I pursue so I can continue to learn new, awesome, exciting and wonderful things that I pass on DIRECTLY to you.
