Vocal Instructor - Alyssa Thormodson
Hi, I’m Alyssa.
I have just bought a starter home with my crazy giant dog and my tiny cat who thinks he's a dog. My job is to help you find your voice and navigate your musical goals. I believe that every individual singer has their own unique voice, and together we can develop the sound that sets you apart.
I have coached students of all ages through auditions for local and school run theatre productions, for American Idol, for the Voice, for open mics, for jobs in the field, etc. I am comfortable taking students in genres I haven’t performed live with such as heavy metal (Tips from Melissa Cross), hip hop, rap or jazz.
The styles of music in which I have performance experience include classical, musical theatre, pop, punk, rock, country, and folk. I hold a Bachelor of Arts with a focus in Vocal Performance from Minnesota State, Mankato. I studied vocal pedagogy (The Teaching of the Voice) at MNSU, Mankato and Shenandoah Conservatory in Virginia. I am the former secretary on the board of the Mankato Children’s Chorus and a member of NATS (The National Association of Teachers of Singing). I have led and co-led church/worship music for 10+ years at multiple churches. I have experience vocal directing community teens shows, Descendants and Chicago Teens Edition, at the Mankato Playhouse.
Take a look at my teaching philosophy for a more formal description about my classical technique and to see if I could be the right fit for you!
