Rahzé Cheatham is praised as a "wonderfully sensitive" performer with "crystalline diction", and a strong foundation in music, theatre art, and dance applications. Armed with the perspective of the intersection of mis- and underrepresented communities, Rahzé seeks to break through an otherwise homogenous music scene. In addition to performing original works, Rahzé enjoys learning and performing works from 1900-forward, by little-known and unknown composers and poets, especially artists of color and LBGTQ-identified artists. They inhabit a liminal space only accessible through a lifetime of otherization, yet extend a bridge to invite others to that space. The ticket for admission, an open mind; the reward, a journey of exploration, growth, and healing.
Whether you are an amateur singer with little experience, or a professional vocal artist, private lesson study is one the most important investments in your vocal health and performance journey. Working with me, you will learn to sing properly without strain, injury, or fatigue; receive feedback on musical interpretations; as well as gain the confidence necessary to maximize your true vocal potential! Right now, I have several slots available for prospective students (16+) with little to intermediate vocal experience who are interested in learning about and developing vocal techniques, foreign language diction, and song preparation skills. Further, you will learn techniques to augment your skills in reading music at sight. We will work together in order to strengthen your foundations in rhythm and melody and the fundamentals of harmony. Finally you will develop the discipline necessary to practice between sessions for maximum results.
