Harlan O

Instruments:

I grew up in Santa Cruz, California, and began playing piano at age 9 with the help of my older sister who also played piano. During my high school years, I focused on composition, which became my main area of study during college. Through my college training at the University of California in Santa Cruz and San Jose State University I supported myself by giving piano lessons, playing organ and piano for churches, and working as a freelance pianist. Currently, I am happy to be spending my time honing my keyboard abilities, teaching others to love the piano and music in general, and composing new pieces of music.

More Information About Voice Lessons

There are a number of things to consider for vocalists who wish to keep their voices healthy and in top shape. Firstly, there is no substitute for good vocal technique. Shouting, forcing, pushing and straining the voice represents bad technique and will likely lead to fatigue or injury. Developing a great singing voice requires strengthening and coordinating the small intrinsic muscles of the larynx, and largely de-activating the muscles that cause constriction and tension. This can be done through specific exercises target at developing the necessary coordinations and muscular strength. Warm ups and plenty of water should be taken before singing.
Your voice is the one instrument that accompanies you wherever you go. Polish it with in-home voice lessons. Professional Musika instructors arrive at your home ready to teach you how to choose songs that fit your voice, maximize your singing performance and care for your instrument. All we need is a piano or keyboard, music and your willingness to work. Whether you sing classical, country or R&B, we help you polish your voice. Prepare for a professional performance, an appearance on a reality singing competition or a solo at a local event when you take in-home voice lessons.
Voice lessons focus on development of vocal skills and breathing techniques. They also help you increase you voice-™s projection and range. Vocal method books and lesson materials can be purchased from a local music store. You can study a variety of vocal styles ranging from classical and opera to jazz and pop. With help from Musika-™s trained instructors, learn how to read music and how to interpret lyrics and melodies with emotion during your auditions and performance. Other topics you-™ll learn include: How to enjoy music and express yourself with singing, Proper breath control, Vocal cord protection, Vocal projection techniques, How to improve vocal volume, How to read musical notations, Interpretation of various singing styles, including classical, jazz, country, pop, and opera, How to interpret songs, lyrics and phrases with the proper emotion, Performance techniques and tips, including how to manage stage fright.
Whether you-™re a first time voice student or have been taking lessons for years, adult voice lessons help you reach your musical goals. Instructors from Musika come into your house, or you can go to their studio. Each lesson is packed with practical singing tips geared specifically to you and your needs. You can learn how to care for your voice, control your breathing and choose songs that fit your voice. We even prepare you for local performances or reality show auditions. Your singing will improve, and you will feel more confident when you take adult voice lessons.
Kids who love to sing may ask for voice lessons, but we recommend children postpone vocal training until they are 11 or 12 years old. Vocal cords typically do not mature until kids reach puberty. Before that age, the child-™s voice is not ready for the rigorous exercising required to succeed in singing. Premature voice lessons could damage or strain a child-™s voice and potentially reduce future vocal performance. For maximum protection of a child-™s voice, wait until after puberty to start child voice lessons. Then your child is ready to begin prolonged training that improves their singing ability.
