Los Angeles, CA
Victoria Lavan enjoys a varied and accomplished career as a singer, actress, teacher and vocologist. Known for her skills and success in many styles and genres of music, she has been praised by the Los AngelesTimes as “…a soprano with first-rate, high soaring vocal skills…and a warm, lyrical, uncluttered way with a song…” (Don Heckman). Favorite collaborations and roles include: the Sundance Institute with San Francisco Opera Adler Fellowship Program; Salt Lake Opera Theatre, Rigoletto (Gilda); Opera Unplugged, La Boheme (Musetta); Albuquerque Chamber Orchestra, The Telephone (Lucy); New West Symphony, Ventura Music Festival - Bach B Minor Mass, soprano soloist, Grammy Award winning conductor, Vance George; Jesus Christ Superstar with Ted Neeley and Carl Anderson, Rubicon Theatre Co.; Glitter and Be Gay:A Tribute to Barbara Cook, El Portal Theatre and regional tour, and several new musical theatre works, most recently, “The Tango Singer” at Theatre West and “Swan Lake the Musical” – a Sold Out concert reading in Los Angeles.

Victoria is currently Vocal Health Advisor/Head of Voice at AMDA College and Conservatory for the Performing Arts in Los Angeles and has also served on the voice faculties of Ventura College, Pepperdine University and UCLA. She actively pursues advanced study for the practice of vocology, the habituation of the voice using traditional methods intertwined with current voice science findings and vocal health practices. This unique, evidence-based approach to training the voice creates an instrument with balanced, sustainable technique facilitating a high level of artistic expressivity and freedom.

Victoria is a Charter Voting Member of the Pan American Vocology Association, a member of the Voice Foundation and the National Association of Teachers of Singing where she has served as past president of NATS-LA and NATS regional governor for Southern California. She received the NATS Teacher Enrichment Grant Award in 2013 to pursue studies in vocology. In 2017 Victoria was awarded a full scholarship to a 200-hour yoga training program. She is a Certified Registered Yoga Trainer with Yoga Alliance (RYT200) and teaches vinyasa flow and restorative yoga for singers.

Victoria’s students are performing on Broadway, national and international tours of “Beautiful”, “Dear Evan Hansen”, “Book of Mormon”, and “Hamilton”, with Disney and Universal Studios and cruise lines worldwide, as well as working in recording studios in Los Angeles and New York creating their own notable and recognized artistic work.
