ABOUT VOICE LESSONS

Singing is FUN and we want you to feel good doing it! At the Dirty Paloma Voice Studio you will build confidence in your voice by freeing your natural tone, finding your signature sound, learning about healthy singing and connecting to your breath support with creative exercises in a fun environment.

The D.P. Voice Studio offers one-on-one voice lessons in Haverhill, MA from the private home studio of head instructor Aliana de la Guardia and at the Be Imagine Music Studio in the downtown area. The studio also offers online lessons where vocalists across the country can take lessons or get consultations via Skype or FaceTime.

With degrees in voice and opera from The Boston Conservatory (BM & MM) and years of teaching experience, head instructor Aliana de la Guardia can accommodate students who range from young beginners to seasoned professionals, helping them to achieve their goals and pursue their dreams. Vocalists of many genres come here to reinforce good technique, rebuild and rehab after stressful tours or performances, or to learn how to sing as beginners or youth performers.

She is a co-founding artist of Guerilla Opera and has also performed new music and opera with American Lyric Theater, Beth Morrison Projects, Boston Modern Orchestra Project, Center for Contemporary Opera, Firebird Ensemble, I/O Ensemble at Williams College, Ludovico Ensemble, Monadnock Music and at the PARMA Festival. Her experience extends to standard classical repertoire, including performances with Boston Lyric Opera, Granite State Opera, New England Philharmonic, Lorelei Ensemble, Cappella Clausura, and among others. Additional engagements include guest speaker at the National Opera Association Convention in Memphis, TN (’12) and guest panelist at Boston Lyric Opera’s “Night at the Opera” series (’12).
