PAULA BAACK, VOCAL COACH

PEAK PERFORMANCE VOICE STUDIO: Established in 2006

The Peak Performance Voice Studio offers vocal, choral and theatre arts instruction. All genres of singing are encouraged. Click Here to see classical singing demonstrated with Sull Aria in a duet with a former student as well as my rendition of “Sooner or Later” from the movie Dick Tracy.

WHY CHOOSE PEAK PERFORMANCE VOICE STUDIO?

A wide range of voice coaching in classical, musical theatre, pop, jazz and other genres provides a well balanced learning opportunity to best meet your needs.

Currently accepting students ages 9-adult (beginning, intermediate and advanced) in all singing styles.

Mission Statement


Singing allows the human joy of expression to permeate the soul. This process is not just in the moment but encompasses a lifetime.

Studies show students who commit to music lessons score higher on achievement tests. Imagine experiencing the exhilaration of singing and strengthening cognitive skills! There are even more benefits to singing: creativity; confidence booster, better public presentations, and achieving a set goal over a period of time.

With sound vocal pedagogy, positive mentoring (and parental support of the younger singers), the goal of singing is not only attainable but within two months of study, there should be a noticeable improvement in the quality of the voice and self-confidence.

The Lesson of the Turtle

Singing is risk-taking! In order to get anywhere in life, you have to stick your neck out!  The studio awards turtle replicas to those students who are ready and eager to get out and sing!  Enroll today and find out what potential you or your child may have in singing.  It’s a risk but worth it!

This past year, several students from the studio were cast in leads, supporting roles, ensembles and tech in their high school musicals. Astral ensemble of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers ; Claire (lead) in Xanadu; Griffin (supporting role) in Matilda; Harry ensemble in Matilda; Jacquelyn ensemble in Nice Work If You Can Get ItLyndon ensemble in Matilda; Makena (supporting lead) in The Drowsy Chaperone; Riana (ensemble/choreographer) in Once Upon a Mattress; Zoe (lead) in Spamalot.
