SoCal Singer Studio

Featuring MDH Breathing Coordination

My name is Nicole Barnhart. I am a professional vocalist, experienced voice teacher, and Certified MDH Breathing Coordination Practitioner. 

I began teaching private voice lessons in 1997, with a total of 10+ years of experience (after taking some time off to focus on being a mommy). I also have over 20 years of experience as a professional vocalist. As a graduate of the world renown Citrus Singers, I received extensive training in voice, dance, and drama, as well as music theory and history. My education continued with an 18-month certification program in MDH Breathing Coordination (MDHBC) in Los Angeles. I love to encourage others, build their confidence, and teach them proper techniques in various styles including pop, musical theater, classical, country, and jazz. MDHBC gives me the opportunity to make a lasting difference for not only singers, but also public speakers, actors, musicians, and athletes who want to improve their performance with maximum efficiency and minimum effort.

Feel free to contact me with any questions, or to book sessions.
