Featured Washington 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.  

Kristin B

Instruments:

I am a very enthusiastic and educated instructor who loves teaching students about music. In 2004, I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a dual-Bachelor's Degree and have been teaching privately since 1998. I have been performing since age 8 and have had the pleasure of playing and teaching internationally.

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.

Jon C

Instruments:

I'm a fun loving musician who enjoys sharing my passion for music with my students. I graduated from the College of Wooster with a Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance and then Florida State University with a Masters of Music in Choral Conducting.  Music has opened many doors both professionally and personally.  I have had the opportunity to tour up and down the east coast while performing with 16 voice professional choir and met my wife through a choir we both were singing in.

Colin J

Instruments:

I am passionate about teaching and singing vocal music. I have been a professional classical singer for sixteen years and I have done my fair share of teaching along the way.  I have performed with Des Moines Metro Opera, Opera Colorado, Connecticut Opera, Sarasota Opera and at Carnigie Hall. Currently I am pursuing my Masters degree in Vocal Pedagogy at Shenandoah University in Winchester, Virginia.  I am doing this so I may better serve my students in many genres, especially musical theatre and pop music.  I want to help my students get as much joy out of singing as I do.

More Information About Voice Lessons

The health of your voice requires the health of your entire body to be at its best form. Many voice professionals advise that students drink adequate water, get enough rest, avoid stress, and exercise regularly. Singers are advised to not talk or scream at excessive levels on the days of performances, and to also avoid overuse of alcohol or antihistamines as they can dry out your vocal folds and make singing efficiently more difficult.
With in-home voice lessons, discover the depth of your singing talent. A Musika professional will offer personalized instruction in the comfort of your home. Learn to sing R&B, master Opera or prepare for a competition. All you need is the desire to learn, an effort to practice and a piano or keyboard. The instructor helps you find songs that fit your voice, and you can learn better control and projection. It doesn-™t matter if you-™re a professional or a novice singer. You will learn something new each time without leaving the house when you participate in voice lessons at home.
During their lessons, students will learn how to sing with good, safe and effective vocal technique. Learning to sing with good technique is the cornerstone to improving the tone, range and health of the voice during singing. Students will learn how to warm up properly, how to increase their vocal range, how to improve and strengthen their tone, performance techniques, how to accurately replicate pitch, how to support their singing with good breathing techniques, song interpretation and how to apply these techniques to singing their favourite songs. Vocal technique is not genre specific - the techniques taught can be applied to almost any genre of music. Students will develop these skills by vocalizing to piano scales. These vocal exercises are things such as; singing different vowel sounds on different scales, sirens, lip rolls and trills, articulation exercises and respiratory exercises. The exercises are tailored to the specific needs and ability levels of each individual student.
Learn to sing your favorite songs with adult voice lessons. Musika instructors are skilled in every genre and musical style. Whether you want to master Opera classics, ace modern Pop or specialize in Country, we can help you improve your skills and abilities. Start by learning vocal exercises and breathing techniques that improve your skill. Then choose songs that fit your vocal tone and range. Finally, learn to project your voice, control your breathing and show emotions while you sing. As your singing skill increases, enter national or regional competitions and feel more confident on stage while singing your favorite songs.
We advise that young students looking to take singing lessons do so at no younger than 11 years old, as they have yet to reach 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 benefit from learning key skills like proper breathing techniques, hearing and recreating pitch and performance techniques. They can also prepare for exams, rehearsals and competitions. Learning how to sing is also good for their overall development, as they will improve their concentration skills, raise their self-esteem and confidence, develop and positive, hard-working attitude as well as a habit of self-discipline through regular practice and lessons.
