Layne Littlepage

Layne Littlepage brings her experience as a classical singer and acclaimed international musical theatre performer to her voice studio in Carmel, California. As a voice teacher, she works with all styles of music and with singers at all levels. Her students include professionals, returning professionals, and beginning through intermediate singers of all ages. As a performance coach, Layne uses her theatrical training to help singers, actors, performers and speakers build confidence, overcome stage-fright, truthfully and artistically interpret music, words and lyrics, and present themselves in an unmistakably professional manner. Layne is a New York Singing Teachers Association Distinguished Voice Professional, having successfully completed the Oren L. Brown Professional Development Program of Vocal Anatomy, Voice Acoustics, Developmental Repertoire, Vocal Health, and Comparative Voice Pedagogy. She is a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) and the New York Singing Teachers’ Association (NYSTA).
Layne is on the music faculty of the prestigious Santa Catalina School in Monterey, California, instructing young singers from the ages of 10 to 18. She specializes in training, developing and nurturing young voices. Her high school-age students have gone on to study at Yale University, the Tisch School of the Arts Musical Theatre Program, Manhattan School of Music, the University of St. Andrews, U.C.L.A. and Northwestern University. Her students have been winners and finalists in national vocal competitions, including the National Classical Singer Competition. Healthy vocalism is a necessity for all styles of singing. A good voice teacher makes the complex simple. As a young singer I was confused by what seemed such different vocal techniques offered by various teachers. Now, as a singing teacher myself, I have developed ways to convey vocal technique simply and understandably to singers of all ages.
In New York, I studied with many legendary voice teachers and vocal coaches, including Marion Freschl of the Julliard School, Martin Rich of the Metropolitan Opera, Judith Natalucci, Franco Iglesias, and Dan Marek, author of “Singing, The First Art.” The foundation of my teaching is the healthy, classic vocalism of Bel Canto singing. For classical singers, I teach the Italian chiaroscuro (clear/dark) balance of sound. For contemporary commercial singers and performers I teach various vocal styles including legit Broadway and the contemporary belt sound used on Broadway and in Pop music today.
