Alexander R Adams, voice teacher

My name is Alexander R Adams. I teach a general healthy singing technique, supported by current vocal science and pedagogy practices, to students of all skill levels.

I received my Masters degree in Vocal Arts from the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music where I received training in opera theater, music theory, and vocal pedagogy.

With over a decade of performance experience and 5 years of teaching students of all skill levels and backgrounds, I am confident we can turn your voice into something you are proud of.

How we learn to sing

I work with new students to establish proper breath support, healthy vocalization and resonance for a solid foundation that will make singing in a variety of styles comfortable and easy. With these new habits, you will find your range increasing, your breath lasting longer, and your voice sounding richer and louder.

As we progress, we can learn new songs in a variety of styles to expand your repertoire, explore singing in other languages, and create opportunities for you to perform and show off your new skills!

Private Studio Lessons

Lessons are taught out of my studio in Oak Grove, south of Milwaukie. I can also travel to students' homes in the surrounding area for an added fee*, provided that a piano is available (electric is fine).

Why I Teach Singing

I have had a lifelong passion for music; singing really feels like a part of who I am. More than anything else I love to lead others down the same path and show them all the exciting possibilities that music can offer. From complete beginners for whom music is just a hobby to advanced students looking to major or minor in music at university, I can offer guidance every step of the way.

Voice Lessons in Portland
I've been taking lessons for a few months. Learning a lot each time. Alex has substantial knowledge. My singing and confidence in my voice have greatly improved.
- Larry W.
I've been taking voice lessons with Alex:- He's very well versed with music and the application of theory (from my perspective)- His passion for teaching is definitely instrumental.- He's friendly and easy to get along with, he really tunes into your needs as a student.

Alex is the exact kind of instructor I’ve been searching for for years. After a throat injury years ago, I was unsure and worried about hurting my voice again, but from the moment of my first lesson with Alex to now, I have never felt so safe and at ease. My throat strain has definitely decreased, and I expect it to go away completely as I improve. Lessons are well-balanced with technique, gentle & honest feedback, and fun! I never feel things are rushed, yet somehow learn a wealth of information. I find myself free to laugh as we work and not take anything too seriously, yet am highly motivated to do my due diligence practicing at home. Alex himself has an incredible voice that proves he himself is an artist in what he teaches. It is a joy learning from him!
- Jenny L.
Alexander was recommended to me by a good friend about three months ago. My granddaughter is autistic and loves to sing. Alex is so good with her and very patient, He always commends her when she has done well and she is always excited to go to her lesson. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone looking for voice lessons. The studio is a great setting and very professional!
- Patty V.
