As a professional vocalist, Raissa has enjoyed performing in a variety of operas, musicals and recitals here and abroad. Some of her favorites include Rosalinda in "Die Fledermaus", Sandrina in "La Finta Giardiniera", Marenka in "The Bartered Bride", Cio-cio-san in "Butterfly" and others.
For beginning brass players, my favorite method for individual instruction in the "Breeze Easy" method, by John Kinyon. These books have fun and engaging entry-level pieces for students to play. Once students have gone through each book and developed certain fundamental skills, I will encourage them to move on to more advanced books such as the Arban's "Complete Method", and Robert Getchell's "2nd Book of Practical Studies". Arban's has a great combination of fundamental exercises such as scale studies and vocalizes, but also has entertaining solos and duets toward the back of the book. I strive to keep lessons engaging and fun by asking directed questions, modeling each piece of music myself, and providing interesting biographical or historical information about composers.
Robert is a classically trained singer and an actor. Growing up in North Carolina, he was active in a variety of musical styles since childhood. Robert studied theatre from a young age at Charlotte Children's Theatre and for a while at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, shortly after he received some vocal training at the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana. Robert was active as a professional singer, actor and vocal coach in the music community of ... Brazil from 2002-2008. Prior to Brazil, he spent several years in Germany singing opera in a Cabaret theatre, in Seattle singing, writing and recording a hybrid style of rock and country music, and in North Carolina directing young singers in a variety of opera performance pieces. He has sung and has appeared in concert as a soloist on several recordings with the Symphonic Orchestra of Minas Gerais. Robert lived and was a vocal coach in San Francisco from 2008 to 2012 at Blue Bear School of Music and was involved with several music projects in the Bay Area pursuing his passion for coaching, songwriting, singing, producing and recording. He recently moved back to Charlotte N.C. and is working as a soloist and singing instuctor. The core of his teaching deals with the singers process of presentings oneself wholly from a place of minimum effort. "Whatever you want to sing, posture, relaxation, diction and coordination are essential, and above all things a willingness to understand the language of music".
I began teaching my first piano student when I was 14 years old. I have since enjoyed teaching in many different ways. I've taught private students, homeschool choruses, pre-K-8th grade (using music curriculum that I created), 8th grade science students, large choirs of beautiful angelic children's voices, adult church choirs, youth and adult bands, gospel choirs, reading literacy students, and soldier medics how to prepare for their responsibilities. I also homeschooled my own children. I am a teacher. It is how I think and behave. I love to learn, and I also love helping others love learning.
I am a passionate, out going, realistic and motivational instructor. I adore working with children and sharing my love for music and music history. I graduated from RI College in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Arts and Sciences with a focus on Voice Performance. I have had opportunities to perform with the Opera Workshop of RI College, and some small opera groups and organizations in Massachusets, New York, Connecticut and Texas. I had the honor of performing for the Chaminade Club in Providence RI, as well as the opportunity to perform at the Annual "Bach Fest" in Poughkeepsie NY. I have also had the pleasure of taking part in a tour with the RI College Chorus to Austria, Slovakia and Czech Republic.

In home lessons are a convenient option for improving your musical skills, and are virtually the same in every aspect as lessons taught in a studio. Lessons are usually taught once a week and significant progress can be made in a short time. Of course, teachers will suggest that students practice every day for the best results.
Many parents start their children with music lessons to enrich their lives and give them a fun activity outside of school. Music is a great outlet for students of all ages because it challenges both the mind and the body. Many studies have been conducted suggest music can improved test scores in math and science, and can also promote improved language development in young children. The biggest benefit of studying music is that it lays a foundation for a lifetime appreciation of music!
Your trial lesson will be a chance to meet the teacher, ensure student/teacher compatibility, and for the teacher to evaluate the student's current skill level in order to create a custom lesson plan.

Dr. Nedra C is incredible. She knows her craft in and out, it truly shows in her teaching. As well, she cares a great deal about the student, and preps plenty of material outside of the lesson for those that she teaches. I've had many different music teachers and am aware who's talented and cares, and who isn't. Dr. Nedra C is true phenomenal, and any student would be lucky to have her.

Having taken 6 years of piano lessons myself when I was young, I am very happy with Osmond teaching my daughter. He is very personable and helping her to enjoy piano. My daughter loves the fun songs she gets to play and I really appreciate how he is integrating even in the first month fingering, chords, beats, and hearing the music. She's getting a very well rounded training and she's loving it!
Review by Terri
Caitlyn is friendly, helpful and still holds my high-school aged daughter accountable for practicing. She also makes sure the music technique is mastered correctly during the lessons - they work hard and still have a good time together. I can highly recommend her as a flute teacher. My daughter is very happy & grateful to have found Caitlyn as a teacher.
Review by Maurice Romero
This is the 1st time I've ever taken lessons, and Robert has been a pleasure to work with. I've made quick progress and have enjoyed the process. I'm always listening for those tips that you can't find in a book. I can count on Robert to be strict on the fundamentals and am clear it will make a difference in the long run.
Review by Emily
Steve gets you started right away with songs but also goes into music theory and reading music which adds to understanding and appreciation of the music. He is very approachable and you can tell that he absolutely loves music and teaching. It is hard not to be excited about the process of learning with Steve. If you are considering lessons I highly recommend Steve for any level of student.
Review by Bradford Putt
Angela has been a perfect match-up for me. She is warm and welcoming, and also serious about teaching - she keeps our time focused and on track. What I truly appreciate, as a new singer anxiously preparing for an event, is the confidence she gives me. Angela is very encouraging. I enjoy coming to class.

Erin has been a wonderful voice/piano teacher for our 7 year old daughter. She is talented, patient, and has a wonderful demeanor. She has been consistent with her teaching in piano and voice. She keeps record of where the students leave off so that they know what to expect the following week. I would definitely recommend Erin to anyone looking for a skilled piano/voice teacher.
Review by Jacob Solomon
Ileen is a very attentive instuctor. she is patient and works hard to see her student succeed. if a concept is unclear she expains it in other ways to ensure understanding. I would highly recommend ileen to students of all levels who want to learn guitar and music theory to thoroughly enjoy the instrument and music
Review by Kristin
Ted S. is teaching clarinet to one of my children, and piano to two others. He is extremely knowledgeable, and very encouraging. His teaching methods are keeping my children enthused about their lessons, and without that, you have nothing. Two of my children were taking piano lesson from another teacher for the past year, and not progressing. Ted has been able to evaluate their skills individually, determine what was missing in their music education, and begin again with some early basics they seem to have missed. I am convinced we are finally moving forward, and am very happy about that. I wish I would have made this change much earlier.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
