"Virtual" Lessons

Our VIRTUAL Voice Lessons at Skokstudio are taught online using Zoom, and are streamed live from our studio located in Mentor, Ohio.

Skokstudio works to deliver the best possible audio and video quality for online “virtual” vocal lessons. Our studio has been equipped with a professional audio/video system which is actively maintained by our on-staff Studio Technology Manager. To ensure the best sound and image quality of every lesson, our Technology Manager briefly “shadows” the first few moments of each lesson behind the scenes, and can also then monitor and adjust the sound during the lesson if needed. Even a random technical issue that may happen on the student end can be quickly corrected with immediate support from our helpful and knowledgeble on-staff Studio Technology Manager. Never lose lesson time due to computer problems!

Our online students are amazed at how well they see and hear Skokstudio lessons and classes. And while there is no substitute for direct human contact, our local In-person students are also provided the option of taking an online lesson for the sake of time management, or due to weather, health, or transportation issues.

All Virtual Lessons are also recorded and sent to you for practice between lessons!

Why "Virtual" Singing Lessons?

Super convenient for today's busy schedule

Save transportation time and extra fuel expense! Never miss a lesson due to bad weather or heavy traffic again!

Sounds like you're there in person!

Our studio’s video conferencing system has been optimized for Zoom and is operated and maintained by Skokstudio’s own on-staff Technology Manager. Instructor and students hear and see each other with crystal clarity.
(High-speed Internet connection, home computer/laptop with USB microphone and webcam are required.)

Teaching For Real Life

Singers of every music genre must create their own jobs and opportunities today. This uncomfortable idea is not taught at conservatories and in higher education, and the result is that many singers do not discover how to launch their career.

Skokstudio helps each student identify and advance toward their own individual vocal development goals with a solid vocal technique that can be applied to any music genre.

We Prepare You

Not only must a vocalist have a solid vocal technique, but you must have the ability to present yourself professionally as a performing live vocalist and/or recording vocal artist.

We help you build the tools beyond the voice by providing opportunities to perform and record with our partner organizations!

Save Money

Singers don’t have to spend tens of thousands of dollars to attend a college or university conservatory, going into debt. Skokstudio offers you affordable vocal instruction taught by the most highly qualified Master Instructor who has served on many voice faculties in the US, at both college conservatories and universities.

Ms. Skok understands the conservatory/university curriculum and setting. Only pay for the education you need, not for the additional repetition of your high school classes plus expensive campus lodging!

Student Success Stories

“Heidi Skok’s gifted ear as a diagnostician and ability to communicate complex technical ideas in simple, concise ways make her an ideal teacher for singers of all levels. As a young artist, her wide knowledge of repertoire, along with her resonant technical approach, and belief in my talents – helped steer me to the next level of my career.

Her passion and energy in the studio is unmatched, working with her you will fulfill your potential! Her teaching has truly changed my life.”

Kirsten Chambers

Soprano with the Metropolitan Opera, New York City Opera, Florida Grand Opera, Opera Hong Kong, Most Known for her portrayal of Strauss roles, particularly SALOME

“Heidi revolutionized my singing. Drawing from her experience at the Metropolitan Opera and other institutions, and from the training she received from some of the world’s best, she has brought my singing to a place I never could have imagined. My technique has never been more sound. She knows the voice. She has an innate gift for hearing potential in a voice and sensing where it most naturally wants to be.

She’s helped me to understand and know my voice in a way no one else ever has. She teaches the importance of letting the character envelope you and the piece, that telling the story and communicating with your audience should be paramount in performing.

Beyond all of this, Heidi has been a huge support in helping me achieve my goals and dreams. She has been in my corner of the ring from day one. She listens to her students – their concerns, frustrations, goals, ideas, etc. Her studio is gratitude focused and always positive. She nurtures an environment where her students can feel safe to try new things and to share exactly what they feel.

I cannot sing Heidi’s praises enough. She is a diamond in the rough, a true gem, and I will be forever grateful for all that she has done for my voice, but more importantly for me as a singer, and student, and a friend.”

Kaitlyn Bourne

Soprano, Graduate student of voice and opera attending the Royal Academy of Music in London

“I studied with Heidi for several years during my formative years as a young singer. I could not have asked for a more supportive and knowledgeable voice teacher. Heidi helped me establish a solid and healthy vocal technique that has been vital in my career today.

Heidi has a huge amount of knowledge, energy, is extremely patient and kind and goes above and beyond in helping singers find their true voice. I cannot recommend her enough and any singer would be in safe hands with her.”
