Featured Odenton Voice Teachers

Diane P

Instruments:

I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston prior to moving to Los Angeles.  There, I would work with some industry greats like Richard Druz, Lenny Greene and Frank Zappa.  I absorbed their skills, talents and techniques.  After singing with many bands in the area, I found gospel music and joined a church with Pastor Rowena Frisco in Inglewood.  Frisco taught me what gospel music was all about and I have carried it with me ever since.   I returned to the East Coast to complete my  formal education at New York University where I received my BA in music performance.  I formed the Diane Postell Band and toured the mid-Atlantic region performing a mixture of blues, rock, rnb, soul, gospel and jazz.  Hoping to reach a larger audience, I wrote, arranged, and produced my solo debut, What I Got To Say.  Diane Postell is as dedicated to teaching as she is to performance.  She creates an environment of support and encouragement allowing artists to feel nurtured.  Postell has a holistic approach to singing; it encompasses the mind, body and soul.  She welcomes student participation and input during a lesson.  Instead of holding every student to the same measure, Diane charts success on attainment of your goals.  She recognizes that every artist is an individual so success is dependent on individual goals challenged and attained.

Michael T. Brown is a diverse performer, equally comfortable with everything from operatic literature to Scottish folk songs.

His opera roles have included Captain Fitzbattleaxe from Gilbert and Sullivan's Utopia Limited, Dr. Blind in Die Fledermaus, Monostatos in Magic Flute, Peterman in M. Choufleuri, and numerous chorus and supporting roles. He has also performed in Scottish folk and folk rock bands as a singer, guitarist, Irish bouzouki player, and recording artist. He has earned a M.M. in Vocal Pedagogy at Catholic University's Benjamin T. Rome School of Music and a B.M. Ed. from Gordon College in Wenham, MA. 

Donna H

Instruments:

I am a very seasoned voice and piano teacher with a very broad music education in vocal performance, piano performance, accompanying, music education, musical theatre and conducting.  I am solidly classically trained in standard repetoire.  I am a conductor of school, church, and community choirs and have been a guest conductor at American Choral Directors Conventions.  I am the past Music Teachers National Association President from Fairbanks, Alaska. I was also a Lead Singer and Director of Class Act Vocal Jazz Band and Golden Heart Chorale.  I have the very best to offer my students.  In addition I am an expert in vocal technique, vocal health and fixing vocal problems including speaking.

Darius S

Instruments:

My first passion has always and will always be music. I have been involved in music performance all my life, from singing in church at the age of four to being in performing arts magnet programs at Hyattsville Middle School and Suitland High School. I formed a love for psychology later in life. Fortunately, I have found a field of study that will allow me to pursue both at once, music therapy. Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program.  I am currently pursuing my Bachelor of Music Therapy at Howard University, with intentions of becoming a board certified Music Therapist.

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.
When you-™re busy, you don-™t have time to travel to voice lessons. You need Musika-™s in-home lessons. Our qualified and experienced instructors do all the traveling. You simply need to provide a piano or keyboard and be ready to sing. Additionally, we are experienced with all genres of music. Let us help you find the perfect songs for your voice, whether you want to sing country or classical. Make time for singing, your passion, while balancing everything else you have to do during the day. With in-home voice lessons, you can have it all and sing better while you-™re doing it.
Students will learn and develop good, safe and effective vocal technique during their vocal lessons. The best way to build a strong, powerful voice is to learn the techniques and practice the exercises covered in lessons. The essence of good vocal technique is centred around being able to successfully bridge from the chest voice to the head voice, with no vocal breaks or noticeable change in tonality. To do this successfully requires strength, timing and coordination of the intrinsic muscles of the larynx, the ability to maintain good vocal fold closure and to tilt the thyroid cartilage. To do these things successfully students will also learn how to support their singing with breath management, as it is important that the air pressure above and below the vocal folds is balanced. During lessons, students will be taught the exercises in order to successfully master these skills. They will also learn about performance, stylistic and interpretive techniques and how to apply them to singing songs.
If you want to sing like a professional, you need adult voice lessons. They improve your vocal range, perfect your tone and protect your voice. You also learn techniques you can practice every day at home. Musika instructors are skilled in teaching every musical genre. With their help, you can master R&B, Classical, Country and other genres and styles. In your home or in our studio, learn how to be a better singer as you prepare for national reality singing competitions, local performances or personal entertainment. Then enjoy singing like a professional thanks to adult voice lessons.
Taking voice lessons is one way your child can prepare for a reality singing show competition or a career as a vocal performer. Prematurely starting voice lesson could cause vocal damage or strain, though. We recommend children wait until they are 11 or 12 years old. At that time, a child is undergoing puberty, and his or her vocal cords are mature enough to handle the rigorous training involved in voice lessons. Waiting is difficult for kids, but the benefits include vocal protection. Your child is more likely to succeed at auditions and performances when he or she waits until puberty for formal vocal training.
