LIZZIE KLEMPERER now gives singing lessons in Fairfield County


Meet Lizzie Klemperer, professional performer, voice teacher and new Connecticut resident. These three things are important to people of Westchester and Fairfield County who love musical theatre.

Klemperer, a distant relative of actor Werner Klemperer and conductor Otto Klemperer, is also the daughter of two musicians. While the pandemic and the birth of her son have slowed her performances, she is still passionate about bringing music into people’s lives.

As a performer, Klemperer appeared on Broadway in School of Rock, Bright Star, A Christmas Story, The Most Happy Fella, Fiorello!and Me and my daughter. She appeared in the first national tours of The Addams Family and little house on the prairie and regionally at Maury Yeston TitanicSunset BoulevardThe Secret GardenThe Music ManHairBig RiverLes Misérablesand somewhere in time.

She captivated critics with her solo concerts. She has performed with the Syracuse and Southwest Florida Symphonies. One reviewer wrote: “(Her) brilliant diamond soprano electrifies a variety of songs…”

Klemperer taught singing while working on Broadway and on tour. During the pandemic, she has found creative ways to teach singing virtually, but she is ready, willing and able to return to teaching.

She points out that “anyone interested in singing should consider singing lessons,” even if it’s just a hobby. She notes that many adults just want an outlet, especially after COVID isolation. “It’s therapeutic.” She also works with children.

Klemperer’s own background was classical music. “Everyone had to learn in a way,” she recalls, but “it’s important to make crossover music.” Almost everyone she teaches is interested in pop music and musical theatre, which requires a “different technique” than operatic singing. “You have to manage the breath in another way and be careful not to put too much weight in the upper register. Start young,” she advises. “It’s useful.” She considers herself “an evidence-based vocal teacher” who respects the fact that “no two voices are the same”.

She offers in-person or group lessons at her studio in Stamford or your home, virtual lessons from your home or office, and masterclasses at your school, theater. Along with her amazing voice, she also does voice-overs – narration, animation, podcasts, video games, and more.

In addition to teaching vocal techniques, she is an audition coach, which is very useful in Connecticut with its many theaters. Of course, this part is good for her too, as she would like to work in the region as an interpreter to fit in with her family life. She is married to former performer Evan Taylor Walker, and sometimes goes by the name Lizzie Klemperer Walker or Elizabeth Walker. Whatever you call her, she deserves to be on your radar.
