After over 20 years of teaching singing, piano, show choir, group classes and conducting church choir in Nashville, Tennessee, Cindy Overfield has moved to Greenville, South Carolina and will be teaching at the Mauldin Cultural Center (one exit from Woodruff Rd. in Greenville).
She has her Bachelors Degree in Music Education from Mars Hill College and moved from Asheville, NC to Nashville, Tennessee to pursue teaching, singing and songwriting. As a teacher, Cindy’s goal is to enhance your talent by assessing your voice and creating the proper technics and skills to enhance your singing ability. Also, Cindy wants to encourage you to learn to sing the songs that you like. For example, if pop music is your favorite, we will pick out some of your favorite pop songs to work on. ” You may not be able to sing Kelly Clarkson or Beyonce right away but I can find pop songs that you can sing until you reach your personal goals! Singing is like learning a sport, you learn to sing step by step,” Cindy says. She also teaches group classes, workshops and show choirs to improve harmonizing skills, stage presence, overall singing technics, songwriting and preparing for auditions.
In addition, Cindy has studied various teaching methods to enhance her teaching skills. She started out working in artist management and worked with the artists on their stage performance, singing live and in the studio and maintaining their voices while on tour. Cindy also performed regularly herself in bands and in the studio and received several publishing deals with her songwriting. She also coaches artists and songwriters in the recording studio and has been a backup singer in bands and the studio. Cindy feels that all of these experiences make her a better teacher!
