About Vera Haime

Vera graduated from The Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester UK as a music teacher. She then achieved “Licentiate of The Royal Academy of Music” in London as a singing teacher.

However, before she began teaching, Vera spent 20 years as a professional singer/musician, moving through classical to folk, jazz, and finally to pop music. She did many international gigs, live radio, live TV, session singing and was signed to Warner Bros as a singer/songwriter.

Vera then founded The Solo School of Singing in London.
It was the first singing school to specialize in pop music and became very successful with thousands of students attending over 14 years. It was accredited by The Brit School and Brighton Institute of Modern Music as an excellent music educator.

Vera also founded “Vera’s Music Academy” in Maryland and Florida. Then in March 2020, it became an online school and is now expanding worldwide.

Message from Vera:
“Surprisingly, the online lessons are creating more progress than face to face.

The students receive backing tracks, piano accompaniments, sheet music, videos of breathing and vocal exercises, and demonstration recordings. With this much preparation and content, their progress has been excellent.

I love teaching. I love to hear the student go “Oooooh!” as they realize something they haven’t understood for years.
Or to see a big smile when they master the high notes of a song.
Or to see tears of joy from the parents at a recital.
Luckily, this all continues online as we connect to keep the music going.”

    Vera is a wonderful instructor! She has a deep base of knowledge to pull from which is incredibly helpful and is straight-forward with her feedback and truly wants … read more to see you succeed.
    I've learned so much from her in my short time taking vocal lessons with her, and always look forward to our next lesson, as I know I'll take away a lot of useful information to help further the use of my voice in pursuit of joining a band. She not only provides a great foundation, but gives you real-world knowledge, which has proven to be particularly useful for my situation of being an aspiring vocalist, looking to sing live.

    I have just completed my first year of lessons with Vera and I must say that I am completely pleased with her instruction, her guidance, and her ability to teach … read more each student individually. When I first started taking lessons with her she knew immediately what I needed to do to improve my voice and she gently guided me in the right song selection for my voice and that would boost my confidence in singing. She is truly teacher of music and voice. I have also participated and assisted with her student concerts and I am so very impressed with all of her students. Their improvement from one concert to the next is very noticeable and that is true testament of Vera's teaching. I moved from voice lessons to piano lessons and I continue to be impressed with Vera's ability to notice when your confidence is fading and move you in a direction that allows you to be successful and renew your confidence. I can't say enough good things about Vera. She is truly an excellent teacher with an amazing spirit and a beautiful friend. Although I took classes with other people, I never took a lesson until I went to Vera's Music Academy!
