Erika K

Instruments:

I am a classically-trained musician who loves all styles of music.  

Melissa M

Instruments:

Melissa began singing in a church choir at the age of four and has been "hooked" ever since. After years of performing in various choirs and taking lessons herself, she went on to earn her Bachelor's degree in vocal performance at Illinois Wesleyan University and her Master's at Illinois State University. Meanwhile, Melissa was also studying piano from childhood through college. Now in her 21st year of playing, Melissa loves to teach beginner and intermediate pianists in addition to young singers. She is a newcomer to the DC area, and has previously lived, sung, and taught in Illinois, Indiana, and Vienna, Austria. Melissa has performed on both the undergraduate and graduate level (and beyond). Her experience includes operas, operettas, recitals, musicals, and choirs. She has performed in venues ranging from the Indianapolis Opera to the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. Over the years she has performed in the United States, Canada, England, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Russia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Finland. She also studied piano for many years, and has experience as an accompanist and vocal coach. Other than her pedagogy training and the typical university diction and literature curriculum, she also took 14 years of French, and lived in a German-speaking country for the better part of a year studying the language. Her knowledge of diction and language issues is extensive. This, combined with her comprehensive training in music theory, history, and repertoire, gives her a vast reserve of knowledge and resources for her teaching.

Tissa K

Instruments:

  I discovered playing music as a youngster in middle school in Tallahassee, FL. I immediately associated myself with and took lessons from the best musicians I could find in my area, including the faculty at Florida State University. I later attended FSU and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Jazz Studies. I have since had the pleasure of joining the Modern Jazz Generation to perform at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Alys Stephens Hall in Birmingham in Alabama, and at the Savannah Music Festival. I have shows with my band later this year in Chicago, Vermont, and hopefully Washington DC. I spend much of my time in Washington DC teaching music and other subjects, as well as composing and practicing music.

Charlotte J

Instruments:

I am a passionate lover of the technique and history of the voice and violin. I have worked extensively with both from a very young age. I will be graduating with honors from UNC Chapel Hill this upcoming spring and will be attending graduate school for my masters in music. I've worked as a teacher for five years. I have worked as a concertmistress of a 100 person orchestra, and I have played some of the longest roles in opera repertoire. I have a passion for these art forms and create a productive and nurturing atmosphere for my students that always yields extensive growth.

More Information About Voice Lessons

Invest in your body to maintain your healthy voice. That might sound strange, but a healthy voice requires a healthy body. Your investment starts with a diet that-™s rich in vegetable, fruits, whole grains and water. You-™ll want to limit sweets and preservatives. Next, stop smoking, limit alcohol and avoid illegal drugs. They damage your body and your voice. Every day, exercise. Improved health and fitness improves your ability to fight illness and project your voice. Finally, rest. Go to bed on time at night, and avoid yelling, cheering or singing for extended times. With a healthy body, you maintain a healthy voice.
When you want to sing better but don-™t have hours of extra time each week, you need in-home voice lessons. They-™re convenient and practical. A trained and professional Musika instructor comes to your home and uses your keyboard or piano to teach you how to sing better. Your instructor can help you choose a song that fits your voice or supervise your efforts to learn voice control. Don-™t let your busy schedule and to-do list keep you from improving your singing ability. Sign up for in-home voice lessons, and become the singer you want to be.
Musika vocal lessons will be based on teaching students good, safe vocal technique that can be applied to a wide range of musical genres and singing styles. Students of all abilities and experience will be catered for, as lessons are devised to suit the requirements of each individual student. Beginner students will work on their pitch, tone and vocal range by doing various different exercises such as sirens, singing different vowels along a scale and learning how to properly support the voice through breath management. These exercises are designed to build strength, timing and coordination in order to traverse the passagio, allowing students to sing notes in their head voice register, thus extending their range. Students can also develop their song interpretation skills, performance techniques and style development. As students advance, they can learn techniques and skills such as messa di voce, runs and fills, vibrato and genre-specific techniques like distortion in Rock singing or covering the voice for Musical Theatre or Classical singing.
Students studying voice for the first time as an adult can look forward to working on vocal exercises and breathing techniques which can help improve their range and tone. Adult students may be interested in studying primarily classical vocal technique, or they may want to focus on different styles like pop or jazz. Our instructors can help you reach your musical and stylistic goals!
Students who take vocal lessons from a young age will learn safe, effective vocal techniques that are suited to the current level of ability of vocal maturity. Learning good vocal habits early on prevents the risk of injury or fatigue or possible misuse of the voice in the future. Students will also be exposed to a creative, fun, musical environment which can be good for their overall development and can help instil a positive attitude and hard working ethics through regular practice and lessons. Students of this age (11-12 years old) will work on pitch, basic techniques and music theory.
