Master Toronto Singing teacher, Deborah Staiman's vocal instruction combines the best that the musical theatre/pop vocal technique and the classical 'bel canto' singing technique have to offer.

An experienced singing teacher, vocal coach, performance instructor and performer, Deborah Staiman returned to Toronto in 2002, after 27 years and an international career.

She has been teaching singing for 31 years and in addition to teaching the classical and operatic vocal production, specializes in building a strong foundation of vocal technique for singers, who sing the musical theatre and popular repertoire. She combines the best that modern day vocal approaches and the classical Italian "bel canto" singing method have to offer. Ms. Staiman was on the vocal faculty of the renown American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA) in New York City. At her voice studio in Toronto, she offers private singing lessons, vocal coaching, performance workshops and an annual student Vocal Showcase. Ms. Staiman strives to realize each student's full vocal and artistic potential as a unique singer.  Beginners to Professionals welcome.

Deborah Staiman is truly the most devoted teacher I have ever worked with.
Besides her unmatched integrity and unlimited energy, what sets Deborah apart from other teachers is her holistic approach to training.
Working with Deborah has taken me from music illiteracy to become an accomplished singer and musician.
I am proud to say this has all resulted in scholarships from several American performing arts schools, including the American Musical and Dramatic Academy and Marymount Manhattan College. Deborah’s tireless commitment and inspiration has changed my life forever.

Deborah's singing instruction and classes are an incredibly worthwhile investment. After only a couple of singing lessons I was able to hear a significant difference in my voice. Her systematic approach is amazing!
