Emily Thebaut

Lyric Soprano, Emily Thebaut is currently living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Emily runs her own private voice and piano studio, is an avid performer in the Bay Area and is the artistic director of a pop-up opera troupe, Opera on the Spot. Emily's most recent performance engagements have included performing the role of Laetitia from Menotti's The Old Maid and the Thief, Bianca, from Puccini's La Rondine at Oberlin in Italy, and the Governess from Britten's The Turn of the Screw at Bay Area Opera Theater.

In addition to performing voice, I have also been teaching private and group voice lessons for the past 8 years. Currently I have my own private voice studio in San Francisco where I teach over 40 students in voice and piano. My studio is located right next to the Civic Center, with easy access to Bart, Muni and a parking garage. I hold monthly studio classes, group and private lessons and three recitals per year.

Teaching Philosophy:

· Create a safe environment for the student. Singing is a very personal activity and creates a lot of vulnerability for the student. My job is to make sure they feel comfortable and know the studio is a safe place to make weird sounds, and experiment with our voices.

· I will be responsive to the student’s experiences and sensations while singing. I will always engage the student in a very open and honest dialogue about how he/ she understands and feels something, and adjust my teaching accordingly.

· Bring enthusiasm and passion towards my work. I will always have a positive outlook on a student’s work, and teach not only vocal technique, but an appreciation for all kinds of music. Hopefully my enthusiasm and love for music will be contagious for my students.
