Blog Client Spotlight For Fun

Client Spotlight: Naia Morgan

I first met Naia while teaching Vocal Technique 1 at University Of The Arts. Since then, we have worked on finding their voice through fun character repertoire all the while building technique. Naia is a wonderful addition to the studio and I look forward to watching them grow!

Tell me about yourself.

I’m a theater design/tech major, but I started out as a performer and still love to perform as much as I can. I also love puppetry and making puppets.

Tell me about what you’re working on now and what’s next!

I’m currently assistant props designing “Cabaret” and “Burial at Thebes” at UArts. What’s next is undoubtedly doing more tech for shows, but hopefully having some performance opportunities as well! I have a few potential summer options for tech, performing and puppetry, but you’ll have to stay tuned for those. 

What kind of roles do you prefer?

I tend to prefer comedic roles, I love making people laugh.

When was your first role as a performer?

When I was in kindergarten, I played a sloth in “the great kapok tree.” Very fancy, I know. 

What do you love about your voice?

I love how much my voice can do, I’ve sung soprano songs and tenor songs and a bunch of character voices, and all sorts of things.

How has Starling Voice Studio helped you?

I had a voice teacher that wasn’t a great fit last semester, I love how Julia teaches and I’ve already learned so much and had so much fun this semester.

What’s your vocal goal this year?

To improve my belt and character voices, as well as work on any auditions that come up.

What advice would you give to someone who is starting voice lessons for the first time? 

Find a voice teacher who is your friend first. it is so much more fun and useful to have a voice teacher that you enjoy spending time with, it helps you relax and the technique comes more naturally.
