LaMarcus M

Hailed as “a voice to remember” while performing at The Rockwall Music Festival, I've been an active young artist, appearing in a number of leading and supporting operatic roles such as Palemon in Thais, Dr. Falke in Die Fledermaus, Raimondo in Lucia di Lammermoor, Les Comtes Des Grieux in Manon Lescaut, Prince Yamadori in Madama Butterfly, Il Commendatore in Don Giovanni, Dancaire in Carmen, and Simone & Marco in Gianni Schicchi.  I made my musical theatre debut as The Beast in Beauty and the Beast in 2011. Most recently I made my Kennedy Center Center debut singing the leading role of USMC Philip in the new Opera “Fallujah” by Tobin Stokes & Heather Raffo. “In the opera “Fallujah” LaMarcus’s sensitive and vulnerable portrayal is riveting. His vocal command will have you hanging onto every note”- DCMTA     Adding to my numerous appearances, I've performed a broad array of oratorio and sacred works including Kodaly’s Te Deum, Malcom Archer’s Requiem, Handel’s Messiah, Haydn’s Missa Sancti Nicolai, Mozart’s Requiem, and a recital January 11, 2013 in Dallas, Texas.  I've been a soloist with the Rockwall Philharmonic Orchestra, Dallas Baptist University Chorale, Texas A & M Chorale, and have performed with Jazz at Lincoln Center alongside Wynton Marsalis.  I've appeared in a recital in Dallas, Texas on January 11, 2013 and made my Carnegie Hall debut in Karl Jenkin’s “The Armed Man” Mass of Peace on January 21, 2013. I took First Place in the 2012 Nico Castel International Master Singer Competition at Carnegie Hall. Recently, I was awarded an Encouragement Award for 2012 from the Metropolitan Opera National Council Audition (Eastern Region).

Tennie S

Instruments:

I've been passionate about music since I was four. I've been involved in music, participating in chorus from elementary school to college. I dedicate my time to teaching the children's choir at my church and play the organ during worship service. I've been teaching privately piano and voice for almost ten years and loved every minute of it. I always like to teach songs that interests the students because that is what music learning is all about. I embrace all kinds of music from classical to pop. What's important to me is making my students happy.  

Gina P

More Information About Voice Lessons

It requires strength and coordination to sing with good, safe technique. For the voice to function at optimum levels, there needs to be good vocal fold closure throughout the vocal range, with steady, consistent airflow passing through the folds. Vocal fatigue or irritants such as mucus can make vocal fold closure difficult, and shouting or poor aerobic capacity can make airflow inconsistent. It is therefore important to be mindful of physical fitness, diet, general health and technique with regards to the voice. The voice needs plenty of rest, regular practice and warmups and water to perform in a safe, healthy manor.
Master the art of singing with in-home voice lessons. Professional instructors from Musika come to your house and help you improve your control and projections. They use your keyboard or piano to help you select music and sing each song correctly. Learn how to read music and how to express the song-™s emotion. You can also learn which songs best fit your voice and how to sing a variety of genres. If you want to be the best singer you can be, you need voice lessons. Take them from the comfort of your home to save time and become a singing master.
Voice lessons focus on development of vocal skills and breathing techniques to help increase projection of the voice and improve the range of the voice. Students will learn how to read music and also learn to emotionally interpret lyrics and melodies during their performance. Vocal method books and lesson materials can be purchased from a local music store. You can study a variety of vocal styles in your lessons ranging from classical and opera to jazz and pop.
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!
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.
