Nancy MacArthur Smith's Voice Studio


Welcome to Nancy MacArthur Smith's Voice Studio, located near Fairfax, Virginia.  I teach voice lessons in musical theater and classical singing, including opera. I am certified by NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing) and Shenandoah University's CCM Vocal Pedagogy Institute.  I work with high school, college, and adult students, offering techniques for breath control, range extension, and register transitions through the exploration of diverse musical genres. I promote a healthy belt technique in musical theater singing.  I have been teaching in northern Virginia for over 25 years.

Testimonial

"Mrs. Smith provides an extremely supportive learning environment in her studio, which was absolutely crucial to my development as a performer. She always encouraged me to work hard to reach my goals and never give up on my dreams. Without Mrs. Smith’s constant wisdom and compassionate teaching, I would never have gained the confidence, opportunities, and success that I have today.”
- Amanda Mason
