Welcome to Cantare Music Studios.
Norma Churchill was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta. After completing her B.Mus in performance at the University of Toronto (Dean’s List), she continued her studies in England with Vera Rozsa and Paul Hamburger of the Guildhall School of Music.
In addition, Norma completed courses at the Britten-Pears School of Music with Suzanne Danco and Hugues Cuenod, at the Beethoven Musikschule in Vienna with Sigrun Quentes and an opera course at Covent Garden.
Her beautiful and expressive voice has been heard in performances with the Edmonton Opera Company, Opera in Concert, the Toronto Operetta Theatre, and the Toronto Choral Society and abroad with orchestras in England and in Poland. She has also had the pleasure of premiering a number of Maria Case’s compositions in Toronto.
Formerly a vocal teacher at Appleby College, Norma currently maintains a busy teaching schedule at The Kingsway Conservatory of Music, St. Michael’s Choir School, and her private studio, Cantare Studio. In addition, she has coached as a guest artist in TDSB arts schools, conducts masterclasses, adjudicates music festivals, runs Musical Theatre programs for youth, coaches young professionals for Creativiva and is a member of NATS and the RCM College of Examiners. Norma was also amongst an esteemed group of professionals who became Official Instructors of the Vibrant Voice Technique.
“I strive to discover each student’s unique voice. In order to accomplish this, I begin by ensuring the whole voice is functioning well; acquiring the stability, coordination and freedom to naturally respond to their musical and expressive intensions. This enables a free and authentic delivery.”
– Norma Churchill
