Studio History

The Eldridge Vocal Studio has been teaching students in FL and NC since 2002.

In 2002, as soon as I graduated from Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, I began teaching voice in a local store -- Dr. Wind's Music.  The owner and staff there were very supportive for a new teacher and took care of almost all my advertising needs.  

Within a year I was also an adjunct instructor at the local community college where I met more local colleagues and taught a curriculum that allowed me to expand my classical teaching repertoire.

Before leaving Florida for North Carolina I coached and taught at a small recording studio!  This is where I enjoyed learning how the production end of the singing business works.  It was also a lot of fun teaching and singing Contemporary Commercial Music.

Throughout all of this, I also had students come to lessons in my home and taught music theater in a summer camp.

In 2005 I suspended my business to care for seriously ill family member.  This cloud's silver lining was that my husband and I moved to Charlotte, NC where 
I re-opened my business in 2007.

While accepting a few students in our very small south Charlotte apartment, I joined the staff of the Charlotte Academy of Music in 2009.  They were a start up business then, too and we had a wonderful association for a year, after which I concentrated on my Home studio.

FINALLY in March 2011 we moved into our current location in Lincolnton!  Although this required 'starting over' because the distance was too far for my Charlotte students to travel, it has been worth it.  

Here I have a true teaching studio space with all my pianos, music and technology readily at hand.  My students have a comfortable waiting area and ample parking. 
The Studio is centrally located in Lincoln County. 

I hope to continue in business here for many years to come.
