Stephanie B

Instruments:

I teach voice up to an intermediate level and piano at a beginning level. I have performed several lead roles in operas and been a featured soloist both at the Peabody Conservatory and at regional opera companies around the country. I have sung in numerous choirs in the Baltimore and DC area, including the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Chizuk Amuno Congregation, and the Washington National Cathedral.

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.

Michelle P

Instruments:

Instilling and nurturing a love of music and developing musicianship are at the very heart of why I’m a private voice teacher. I earned my Master of Music Education degree in 2012 from Boston University, which has furthered my love of teaching and given me even more resources to draw from. I am currently singing with Choralis here in D.C. recently performing Beethoven’s 9th Symphony under the baton of Gretchen Kuhrmann. Previously, I’ve sung with the Toledo Opera, the University of Toledo orchestra, and given numerous recitals throughout Ohio. 

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

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.
One-on-one vocal lessons straight from the comfort of your own home are a great way to learn to how to sing. 90% of our students choose to take lessons from home, mostly due to the convenience of not having to make travel arrangements both to and from their lessons. This is great for parents and students with busy schedules. The content of home lessons is exactly the same as studio lessons, where students will work on technique and exercises. Home lessons provide the best learning environment, as it is a comfortable, familiar surrounding for students to learn in.
Voice lessons focus on developing performing techniques, vocal techniques and how to support your voice properly for singing. You will learn how to read and interpret music, how to bring your own emotions to your performances, and how to enhance the quality of your singing in preparation for auditions.
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.
Age 11 or 12 is the best time to begin voice lessons. When a student starts to mature emotionally and physically during adolescence, this is the appropriate time to begin lessons on vocal technique. Starting voice lessons younger than age 12 can be very demanding on an untrained voice and can cause damage if the student is not vocally ready. Students that have studied another instrument previously, before starting voice, are also at a distinct advantage, because they will know how to read music already and will be able to learn music at a faster pace.
