Vocal Euphoria

Greetings Grasshoppers, my name is Carolyn! I'm a Professional Vocalist, Entertainer, Actor, TED Talks Speaker, Voice and Performance Coach. I am also an Instructor/Sensei, and the Owner and Founder of Vocal Euphoria. I've been singing and performing for over 30 yrs and teaching since 2009.

Welcome to Vocal Euphoria!

I started my little company because I realized that there were so many people out there who were never taught how to perform.  Over the years, I learned to sing, I learned theory and even learned to play a few instruments but whenever I was asked to perform in front of an audience I was terrified. When I asked my teachers how to fix this they didn't know how. In fact they were scared too. I found this fascinating! After much research I discovered that most instructors had no idea how to address stage fright and in fact since i started my business, many of those same instructors started coming to me for lessons. I am thrilled that I get to teach many established singers, actors and public speakers how to be the best in front of an audience, big or small.

My company specializes in singing, acting and public speaking lessons, classes and workshops for all ages and all levels whether you are a beginner or advanced. Professional training and coaching is provided by experienced instructors who are active, outstanding performers who understand the industry, and know what is required to be the best in a competitive market! Our objective is to help kids and adults achieve their goals, discover their true voice, unleash their talent and conquer stage fright. 

Vocal Euphoria is that awesome, amazing feeling you get when you sing and hit a beautiful note or speak and deliver a wonderful message!

Euphoria is a state of intense happiness and self-confidence.
