I like to establish healthy and sufficient techniques. In addition, I believe that choosing the right repertoire is just as important. The repertoire that is performed should be choosen carefully and should address certain needs and technique.
I have taught since college, but formally I have really been into it for the past 5 years. Teaching for me is truly a passion. I really enjoy imparting the technique I have worked so hard at, as well as meeting others who are energetic and interested in singing.
I'm a lover of music and want those who pursue music to be as well! I am passionately motivated as a musician, minister of music, and singer. I have performed throughout this nation as a guest musician and in my own backyard as a vocalist and musician. Even though my college was not specifically a school of music but of biblical academics, I as highly involved in anything that music was apart of eventually graduating and becoming the schools minister of worship. I have lived my life as a professional musician and singer and believe others can do the same if they are fully committed. I desire to help impart all of my experiences to the next upcoming generation of musicians and those who weren't able to pursue it in their earlier years, its never to late to chase a passion.
My focus is simple - as simple as possible in this art form. Healthy Signing * Understanding of how you produce the sounds in your body. This is not ONLY focused on the science of voice, but through imagery. It is vital for students to create THEIR own mental image - not what I say. * Breath - We have to breathe, otherwise we would fall over and pass out! My ideas about breath a VERY different from the concepts of support. * Appropriate repertoire - Students will need to apply the vocalising skills from the "technique" part of the lessons, and this is done - of course - using repertoire. I believe in creative options for repertoire - but it is important that all selections are age, vocally, and stylistically appropriate. Confidence *We all struggle with confidence in our personal and artistic lives. It is my JOB to help my students find the best of themselves. Fun *My method of singing has to involve laughter...I mean...why not!

The teachers in our network create a customized lesson plan for every student, so no two students' lesson plans will be identical. Topics covered during Musika's voice lessons may include, but are not limited to: proper breath control technique, how to support your voice, how to read music, how to interpret various styles of singing (classical, jazz, pop, etc.), performance tips and techniques, how to overcome stage fright, and most importantly, learning to enjoy music and express yourself through singing!
Before age 11 or 12, a child's voice is under development. He or she may want to sing in a local competition or national audition, but the vocal cords are not yet mature enough to handle intense musical training. Lessons for kids should start after they begin puberty, when they are physically and emotionally mature. Otherwise, your child's voice could be damaged or strained. To protect your child's voice for future musical performances, wait until they start puberty. Then begin voice lessons that train your child for singing competitions, auditions, and recreation.
Convenient and comfortable, in-home voice lessons prepare you to master the only instrument you carry with you everywhere you go. Professional instructors in Musika's network employ time-tested methods to teach you how to operate your voice to maximum capacity. With the piano you have in your home and music you can purchase from almost any musical store, learn to sing Opera, R&B, Country music, or anything else. Simply schedule lessons and avoid the hassle of traveling to a studio across town. With professional voice lessons, learn how to care for your voice as you use it to make beautiful music.
Adult voice students want to learn how to sing better. If that describes you, achieve your goal with instruction from experienced instructors from Musika's network. These instructors can teach proper breathing techniques, voice control, and vocal exercises. Additionally, the professional teachers in our network have experience in every musical genre. As an adult student, learn to sing Jazz, Pop, Country, Classical, and a variety of specific styles within each genre. Musical instructors help you choose songs that fit your voice and prepare for national competitions, regional auditions, or personal enjoyment. If learning how to sing better is one skill you want, adult voice lessons will help you reach that goal.
Your body and voice are interconnected. If your body is healthy, your voice will be too. That's why you need to eat a balanced diet, exercise daily, get enough sleep, and rest your voice. When choosing food, pick whole grains, fresh produce, and lean protein. Drink water instead of soda, caffeine, or alcohol. Every day, perform aerobic exercise. Swimming, running and biking improve your overall fitness and strengthen your body. Maintain an adequate sleep schedule. A regular bedtime can help you get enough sleep. Then rest your voice. You can't yell, scream, or sing throughout the day and enjoy a healthy voice. With these tips, both your body and your voice stay healthy.

"My daughter has been a student with Mark for over a year. She has come so far and has learned so much in such a short time. Mark is extremely talented and knowledgeable. He is very serious, patient and super nice. If your child or if you really WANT to learn the drums, then I highly recommend Mark. He is our third instructor and the best one yet! You will not be disappointed." Michelle S.

Henry is teaching my daughter how to play piano. Henry is an excellent teacher, we really like and appreciate him. His teaching style works very well for my daughter, she is comfortable which makes learning enjoyable. Henry is very patient and I can see that he is passionate about teaching music. Great teacher for sure.
Review by Travis Dalenberg
Travis is the greatest. He knows his music and how to teach it. He gives you time to learn, but will not allow student time to get lazy. I know he teaches all age groups. Young pre-teens to us old folks 78 years young. I have been taking lessons from him since early December 2014. He is a true professional. You can't go wrong with him.

Dave is a fantastic teacher. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to students that I think is invaluable. At the same time, this does not limit him from working with beginning students. He is very communicative with the parents as far as schedule changes. We are so grateful to have found him!!
Review by Chrystal
I was skeptical at first not knowing what I was getting my self into.. I am very happy that I forced myself to get into voice lessons because Eli is an awsome voice coach.. Very skillful and he helps you reach the goal you are trying to reach.. He is also very helpful with getting you to open up and come out of your shell and being heard.. I would and I already have recommended friends and family to sign up with Eli if they're serious about singing..

Rebecca has been super with my son! He is 8yrs old and has mild aspergers. He has never played an instrument before but after one lesson with his teacher he could keep a beat on his drums. She is able to keep his attention and really makes it fun! She is flexible and easy going. I highly recommend her for any lessons. Very nice teacher! Thank you Rebecca for your outstanding service!!
Review by Joshua Thompson
I have known Erin since I attended graduate school at the Hartt School in Connecticut. Last year she came to the college I teach at to give a master class and talk about her experiences as a musician abroad. She has proven that she is a capable and wonderful musician and educator. I highly recommend studying with her if you're lucky enough to have the opportunity!
Review by Heather Berest
I started my 5 yr old daughter with Karleen this Fall. Karleen has a calm and honest disposition. My daughter adores her and cannot wait for her arrival. I was concerned because my daughter is not so willing to "practice" during the week. Karleen advised me to allow her habits of practicing to evolve naturally as her love and understanding of piano increases. She emphasized how nurturing my daughter's love of music is most important. This was music to my ears :)
Review by Pat
Henry has been a great piano teacher since I started lessons about a month ago, and he is helping me realize a lifelong dream. He is patient, plays beautifully, is easy to learn from and a very nice person. I took lessons as a child for a year or so, but never followed up over the years. I always said that I would once I retired and found the right instructor. That time is now. Thank you Henry and Musika!
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.
