What I offer....
The artistry of singing is multifaceted. I am a vocal technician. Assessing your technical issues and giving the tools to build the right muscular habits to replace the destructive ones is what I do best. And I do it with compassion, humor, high expectations, attained expertise, humility, and a lot of laughter along the way.
The speaking voice plays an intricate part in the singing voice. They are closely related. Carriage and posture also play a major role in voice production. Equally important and perhaps most important is how we breathe and use that breath for optimal and efficient support in vocal output. Gaining confidence and courage, and being vulnerable in sharing a part of ourselves when we perform....it's all a part of every voice lesson and vocal coaching. I have no desire to change your authentic sound. I celebrate the uniqueness of each gifted artist. It is my job to make sure your sound is produced healthily for optimum joy and longevity of career.

"Everyone has a story to tell; something to say. I want to be the person who gives you your voice."
I noticed immediately while studying with Edie how my voice, language skills and acting improved after one lesson. She has many tactics for teaching voice; technical and full of imagery. Having her also work with my choir singers was one of the best things I have done for my choirs!
Will Skaff, singer and choir conductor
Each singer recommended by Ms. Delegans was impressive. It is clear to me that she teaches with enthusiasm, intelligence and generosity to articulate the art of singing to her students. Her students are a reflection of first class teaching.

Edie prepared me with the tools not just of superb vocal technique, but also in navigating the world of classical music with humanity, wisdom, and humor. I have gone on to have a successful career here in the United States and worked with some of the best companies, colleagues, conductors and directors, and I know that the foundation for my success started with Edie. I often refer back to notes I took in lessons with her and the foundation of technique she taught me. But it is the technical foundation in combination with her philosophy and humanity that is so unique and a true asset for those of us lucky enough to have worked with her.
