What would having a GREAT song on SoundCloud do for you? How would creating a HOT YouTube video make you feel? 

You’ve been wanting to become a part of the online music sharing world, haven’t you? You’ve been meaning to make a recording or a video but haven’t done it yet? How long have you been feeling this way?

This class will make your DESIRE a REALITY, and help you create content that makes you PROUD.

During the pandemic, our homes have become our primary creative space. MAKE THIS TIME COUNT!

IVA Voice Studio is offering a week-long online seminar for students to learn how to record themselves in a home studio and post that content on online music forums like SoundCloud and YouTube.

With the help of Universal Music artist IVA and New School of Jazz and Contemporary music trained Michelle Ley, you will:

  • Learn to record with hardware and software that you already have or that is easy to access
  • Create a space at home in which you can make high quality recordings
  • Record audio and video that makes your listeners/viewers pay attention
  • Learn how to promote your music online
  • Get help creating your SoundCloud and YouTube accounts
  • Get help registering your original work if necessary of ASCAP or BMI to protect it
  • Perform online LIVE with your classmates
  • * BONUS – private follow-up strategy session to help keep your recording going strong.

In addition, special guest actress Camille Natta (Netflix’s “Hollywood”) will teach you how to work with a camera, setup a home space that looks good for recording, and to help put your performance across on a screen.

Classes meet in the mornings. As a student you will use the afternoon to work on your own projects. Scheduled coaching help will be available during this time. You will then share their work the following day with other participants and receive feedback and guidance from your peers and your teachers.

Group meetings in the morning will take place on Zoom from 9am-12pm EST Monday through Friday. Afternoon one-on-one coachings will take place as scheduled calls on FaceTime, Skype, What’s App, or Zoom.

The class will culminate with an ONLINE PERFORMANCE over Zoom which will BROADCAST to YouTube Premiere.

Those who capitalize on the opportunity of THIS MOMENT will reap dividends for years down the line. You will have the satisfaction of knowing you have the tools to make great music and videos at home, build an audience of people who genuinely like you and follow your music for years to come, and hone your sound and style in a safe space. Sharing your music will give you more opportunities to perform and record well into the future. No more waiting for things to “open up” for you to be able to do what YOU TRULY WANT TO DO.



IVA, Michelle Ley, and Camilla Natta

IVA’s ethereal vocals and heartfelt songwriting have carried her across two continents and successfully bridged musical genres—she is that rare crossover artist, a songwriter and bandleader, an art-song interpreter, and an opera singer.

Born Emily Samson Tepe, IVA trained at Princeton University, the Juilliard School, and the Manhattan School of Music before moving to Stockholm, Sweden, on a Fulbright scholarship to study the music of her ancestors. She was poised for a career as a classical singer, winning rave reviews for her concerts abroad, until a chance meeting changed her direction: at the gym she got to chatting with the casting director of Late Night with Conan O’Brien, who invited her to sing on the show. Max Weinberg took notice and IVA returned many times as a singer and actress. She realized her voice suited more modern settings for music. Read more …
