Mrs. Sáles - Voice Lessons

Contact Mrs. Sáles

Welcome to Mrs. Sáles’s voice studio!


Madeline Holly-Sales participated in vocal ensembles and musical theater throughout childhood. Her move to Brazil in 2001 initiated an in depth study into classical and contemporary vocal technique. She has performed in Brazil, Turkey, Austria, Germany and the United States. Madeline is currently the lead vocalist for Beleza Brasil, combining the sounds of samba, funk, soul, jazz and bossa nova. She released her first CD in 2006 entitled Time to Dream.  For audio samples visit: or


   I believe that singing plays an integral part in self expression. As a voice educator, it is my responsibility to provide well prepared, quality instruction to help each student realize her own individual potential and abilities. Through my education and love of music, I intend to inspire students and help them realize their great potential. 

  The benefits of studying music include:
•    Development of an enduring skill which will continue to bring pleasure throughout the student's life
•    Development of attention span, concentration level, and memory
•    Development of goal-setting, time-management and organizational skills
•    Development of problem-solving skills
