Bio

Linda Balliro, Voice teacher, vocal coach, speaker, presenter and author of “Being A Singer, the Art, Craft and Science.” Ms Balliro’s teaching and coaching skills have been forged over two decades as an Associate Professor of Voice at Berklee College of Music since 2014, Vienna Conservatory of Music from 2003-2006, and as a private voice teacher and vocal coach, in Boston and globally via remote teaching, since 2007. Ms. Balliro has successfully trained professional touring artists, college students, young professionals, recreational singers, kids and teens, teaching singers how to sing, rather than what to sing! She is particularly recognized for her skills in training singers to mix, extend their range to sing great high notes, eliminate the difficulty in transitioning from chest to head voice or to extended high notes. After graduating from New England Conservatory of Music in Boston with a B.M. in Vocal Performance, she pursued a singing career in Europe, where she studied with several high-level teachers at opera houses in Budapest and Vienna, performing in opera, concerts and recitals throughout Central Europe for over a decade. With more than twenty years of experience mentoring voice teachers from four different countries, pianists, vocal coaches, music directors, and conductors, Ms Balliro began teaching voice lessons and singing coaching in Austria at the Vienna Conservatory. Now, after almost 20 years of performing, and 20 years of voice teaching, Ms Balliro is developing online singing courses using the latest technology for the ultimate blended learning experience for singers.
