Transform into the Confident Musician Every Singer Wants to Be
You are a singer.
No matter if you are a professional or amateur singer – singing is what you do, it is what fulfills you.
And there is more to being a singer than just opening your mouth and belting out the arias or showtunes or jazz standards.
Singer Savvy Academy is here to fill in the gaps. We provide online music courses to develop your musical and artistic skills which will ultimately make you a better musician, a better performer, and a better artist.
And you can achieve all of this from the comfort of your own home with our online academy!
Who is Singer Savvy Academy For?
You are a working singer with lots of gigs lined up but are always frustrated with the fact that your musical skills aren't strong enough to allow you to learn music quickly and efficiently. You end up paying people to help you learn roles and songs and you realize how much money you could save if you could do it yourself.
You have the dream of becoming a professional singer one day be it on the opera or musical theatre stage or in the bright lights of a packed stadium. You realize that in order to be taken seriously, you need to beef up your musical skills so you can compete with the professionals.
You have been teaching voice privately or in schools for a long time or maybe you are just starting out. You are confident about the pedagogy of voice but you are frustrated with the fact that you can't play the piano well enough to accompany your students. Or you need new ideas to teach musicianship to your students.
You don't have any aspirations for a professional singing career but you have always wanted to learn more about music. You want to sing and play the piano for pleasure and understand the musical language to impress your friends and family. You want to have better skills to support your church or community choir.
WHAT YOU CAN LEARN
You don't need to know how to play Beethoven sonatas, but you do need to know how to accompany yourself, play chords, and learn music at the keyboard.
Exactly what it says – the essentials of music reading. You'll learn key signatures, rhythms, reading in both clefs, the fundamentals of harmony and harmonic progressions, score construction, and more.
An essential tool for all singers – being able to pick up a piece of music you've never seen before and sing it perfectly on sight.
Practicing isn't just about singing through your songs. There is an art to it so that you learn things more effectively and efficiently.
Learning a role from scratch can be a daunting task and it is more than just memorizing the words and music.
This is all just the beginning. New courses will be added on a regular basis.

Hello! Let me introduce myself!
I’m Dr. Regina Zona, a master teacher of voice, piano, and dramatic interpretation and owner of Singer Savvy Academy by the Zona Studio LLC.
To get the bragging out of the way….I am a former award-winning opera singer, a current award-winning cabaret singer, and a recording artist with 2 albums (with 1 more on the way), one of which is on the Naxos American Classics Label.
I started to play piano at the age of 8 and I had dreams of becoming a concert pianist. But when I was a junior in high school, I was cast as Maria in West Side Story and that was it! The stage got me – hook, line, and sinker! Ever since, I have been blessed to sing on opera and concert stages around the world and in some of the most prestigious clubs in New York City.
But most importantly, I am a wife, a mommy to three adorable puppies (Max, Chester, and Jack (he’s the cutie in the picture), and I drink way too much coffee. The truth is that I don't think I actually like the taste of coffee all that much, but I love sitting in a Starbucks on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, sipping my latte, and watching the ever-fascinating New York City crowds. I am also obsessed with Bob Fosse and I frequently break out in musical theatre song lyrics!
Oh yeah! And I teach too!
I have been teaching voice and piano for over three decades in a thriving private studio as well as in tenure-track positions at several universities around the country. I am also an in-demand dramatic coach for singers in opera and musical theatre and a stage director.
At Singer Savvy Academy, I serve singers and voice teachers who want to master the musicianship skills that support their singing and the singing of their students. Basically offering “everything but the voice lessons,” there are courses in piano skills, sight-singing, music theory, role preparation, audition techniques, and more! Singer Savvy Academy by the Zona Studio LLC is focused on transforming singers into well-rounded musicians, performers, and artists.
So let's get started!
