|A Master Teacher of Voice
|Recently retired international opera singer Nicholas Loren is quickly establishing
himself as west Michigan's preeminent private vocal instructor.
Having moved from New York City, Mr. Loren now resides and operates his
vocal studio in Holland, Michigan. His current roster of students boasts over
130 singers of all ages, including dozens of area college and private voice
instructors and choral directors who seek to improve their own singing and
teaching skills. In fact, Loren's reputation is such that his students commute
from as far away as NYC, Indiana, Chicago, Detroit, Kalamazoo and
Lansing, as well as Muskegon and the greater Grand Rapids area.
Nicholas serves as vocal consultant for the West Michigan Opera Project and
is the Holland Chorale's staff vocal consultant. He also inaugurated the
Chorale's annual vocal competition on September 26, 2009. This prestigious
event has since received national attention and in 2016 will offer over $6,000
in cash prizes. For more information about the competition please go to

"Students need more than just the right vocal information. Most importantly, they need an intuitive
response to their personality.". Singing requires a vulnerability to open yourself up. It is a spiritual
journey-when you're exploring your voice, you're exploring yourself. It is paramount to me to create a
positive, safe haven of learning for every one of my singers."
