About me

Chelsea Manning is a classical singer from Golden, CO. She has been teaching in the Denver metro area for the past three years and has taught children as young as four years old, adults in their mid-forties and every age in between. She emphasizes a pedagogy of creating an encouraging learning atmosphere where students are met with positive reinforcement and the encouragement to challenge themselves to interact with music. Not every student learns the same way and should not be taught the same way. She uses an eclectic “arsenal” of teaching methods to give truly individual voice and piano lessons for her students.
Chelsea Manning has sung roles such as Mlle. Silberklang in The Impresario for UNC's Arts in Education Program, as well as Susannah in UNC's Opera Scenes Program.

Specialties

I offer voice and piano lessons to all ages and abilities levels, specializing in teaching young children. My teaching style is eclectic, I have a technique "arsenal" that I draw from to create a highly individualized lesson plan for my students. I believe that the most important trait of a music teacher is to encourage a lifelong passion for music. The drive to become the best musician ever tends to lead to stress and defeat whereas a life infused with music leads to encouragement, enrichment and a continued desire to learn. I also believe in making my students musically literate so that they may be able to explore music on their own and be able to form their own opinions on music.

Lesson details

Chelsea Manning’s lesson structure involves warm-ups that develop the technique of the student, discussion of theory (depending on the student’s age and ability), and practicing of repertoire. Repertoire is based on the student’s interest and what the teacher deems is appropriate for the student’s ability. (We can talk about whether a beginning piano player wants to play the third movement of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata or a beginning singer wants to sing Wagner’s Isolde if that happens to be the student’s dream, but the student may want to work on different repertoire at the very beginning.) ☺
