Voice Lessons For Kids Age 15+

At EVS, we believe in nurturing aspiring musicians from an early age. Our voice lessons help kids discover their own voice, fostering self-awareness and individuality. Our voice lessons for kids aged 15 and above are crafted to build confidence, technique, and a love for music. Our patient and skilled instructors make learning fun and engaging, helping young singers to discover their unique voices and develop their skills.

At this time we ask for ages 15+ due to our Ottawa lessons only being online. We find virtual lessons are typically difficult for younger students to stay engaged through.

Our vocal coaching for artists covers various genres of vocal music, including musical theatre, pop, and rock, to take your singing to the next level. This coaching helps artists build vocal stamina and power and create their own music, influenced by the expertise and teaching provided by artists working in the industry. Work with top Canadian artists who understand the demands of the music industry and can provide you with the insights, techniques, and guidance needed to excel in your career.

Our friendly and encouraging instructors will help you develop essential skills such as breath control, pitch accuracy, and vocal strength. A great teacher is able to make you feel comfortable in a supportive environment while pushing you just enough that you are not overwhelmed but you are improving. In your first lesson, we encourage you to be transparent with your teacher. Let them know if you have a desire to sing a specific genre like classical, or share with them that you need to feel regularly encouraged to keep your courage up. You will never be pushed into performing unless you want to– we prioritize what you are interested in and giving you a fantastic experience.

Jordanne was exceptional - I can't recommend her work enough to anyone seeking to improve their vocal technique and/or strength. She takes a full-body approach to singing, based on her training in Alexander Technique, which in my case meant connecting my posture to tension across my whole body. With Jordanne's guidance I was able to go from singing with tension and strain to singing with fluidity and support, all within a very short period of time. The newfound confidence I have in my voice is life-changing!

I love my courses with Ian, he's very supportive and helpful and still pushes you to improve. He always adapts and finds different angles to see what works best with his student. It's always a pleasure.

I love everything about my lessons with Ian! His approach is creative and scientific, he always strikes the right balance between challenging and reinforcing, adapting to his students' needs and goals. He is a kind soul, super sensitive and empathic, has a great personality and excellent relational skills which made me feel secure and comfortable quickly at the beginning of our lessons, even though I had zero experience in singing. I am very happy with my improvement in a few months, it has been empowering. I highly recommend him and Express Voice Studio!

I have taken songwriting, vocal classes & piano lessons with Verona for only 2 months and I have already seen an immense improvement in my songwriting skills, my vocabulary and understanding of singing + songwriting. Verona helps you understand what she’s saying by providing imagery & her own tactical experiences. She also offers vocal production & explains to you exactly what she’s doing so that you know for yourself and makes sure you really understand why what she’s teaching is so important! She’s mastered her craft and you can tell how much she truly loves teaching, and singing! Happy to have the pleasure of working with her. Truly recommend. I wouldn’t have gotten this far in my craft without her along side to help guide me!

I highly recommend Ian! I found my teacher Ian through express and I could not speak more highly of him! Ian's teaching is superb and has really pushed me to become the singer I want to be. His approach is technical and thorough while also being fun and super supportive. Ian is very encouraging, positive and patient, and has given me the resources to believe more fully in myself as a musician. He will help you to get your voice and your mindset where you want it to be. I highly recommend Ian and Express Voice Studio!

Ian is an amazing teacher and I would 100% recommend him for singing lessons! He’s very patient, always coming up with new and original content for his classes and I’ve seen considerable improvements in my singing since I started taking lessons with him. Always bringing that great energy that makes you want to learn more and improve!

Voice coach Robert Popolii


Robert is the best voice teacher I've ever had. In addition to having an amazing voice and range (helpful when I need to hear the notes back) he's incredibly supportive and fun to work with. I've improved my voice drastically and he really helped me through learning to belt and riff! Thank you Robert!!
North York voice teachers Tylor van Riper


I absolutely LOVE Tylor. I started singing last May and I was super nervous about it. Singing is extremely personal and vulnerable, and for me it’s been so hard to feel comfortable enough to go to lessons because of how insecure I am about my voice. Once I summoned the courage to finally take lessons, I have to say that Tylor really went above and beyond to ensure I felt comfortable and safe.

Jordanne is great teacher! For the first time I contact her, I am very pleased. She took the time to truly understand what I needed. And, the first time I met her she made me feel so comfortable that I felt at ease to express myself. She made me do some exercise to see what my blocage was. Then gave me a routine, which is exactly what I needed. It have been only 3 courses but I can experience the change and improvement. And not only in singing and piano. I wasn’t aware of all the tension I use to have in my body. Now that I am conscious of that, I am able to relax my body and feel a deep connection.

I did my first lesson with Jordie last week. She is very patient and has a lot of knowledge on vocal training. She made me see things from a different light in just one session! Her knowledge is impeccable. I’m looking forward to working on my voice with her! I already feel improvement in just a week. Truly recommend her.

Throughly enjoyed my lessons with Express and Ian! Would definitely recommend. I looked for a long time for a singing teacher that I could have fun with, connect with, and grow my voice. Ian was definitely that teacher for me. The concerts were great too to be a part of.
Thank you guys!
