For the past 20 years Angela Powell has been teaching voice lessons to many young and aspiring singers. She first started her own voice training at the School for Creative and Performing Arts high school in Cincinnati, Ohio. After graduating, Angela attended Oberlin Conservatory where she received her first training as a voice teacher at a small rural high school in Lorain, Ohio. She also fine tuned her own vocal development under the direction of Beverly Rinaldi and Daune Mahy.
As a student at Oberlin, Angela was able to take advantage of the ground breaking work of Richard Miller and the Cleveland Clinic and their work with the anatomy and function of the human voice. She participated in many vocal workshops and laboratory studies to further understand the workings of the voice. After graduating Oberlin, Angela went on to receive her master of music at the university of Maryland studying with Linda Mabbs and later Carmen Balthrop. In the graduate program, Angela taught voice classes and undergraduate voice students.
At Maryland, Angela met Rose Bello, a doctoral student and soon best friend, and together they developed a strategy for helping choral conductors get the best sound from their choirs. The workshop they created was highly successful and soon church choirs, school choirs and other organizations were highly interested and benefiting from their participation. After Rose Bello passed away, Angela has continued to keep the workshop growing and advancing in the metropolitan area.
Along with the workshops, Angela maintains a private voice studio of a wide variety of students. She also in a professor of voice at the Washing Bible College in Lanham, Maryland and she is currently the Artistic Associate for Vocal Development with the Master Chorale of Washington in Washington D.C.
