My name is Rebecca and I am a native Texan who has just moved to the DC area from New York City. I am passionate about both teaching and performing! As a performer, I have enjoyed performing in many regional productions of musicals and operas. Some of my favorite roles include Maria in The Sound of Music, Cosette in Les Miserables, Belle in Beauty and the Beast, Kathy in The Last 5 Years, Nella in Gianni Schicchi, and Edith in The Pirates of Penzance. I have also performed with the prestigious Cincinnati May Festival Chorus and had concert appearances at Disney Hall in Los Angeles, New World Stages in New York City, The Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford, England, among many others. In addition, Rebecca I am a clinician for many master classes- this year teaching and performing at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington. Most recently I have enjoyed working for Disney and singing back-up for Kevin Spacey!
I'm a professional, patient, full-time musician. I've been performing for over 30 years, and teaching music privately for over 10 years. As a teacher, my primary goal is to pass on love of music by helping my students learn whichever instrument they choose.
Hello! My name is Donovan, and I am an instructor who specializes in ear training and technique. Originally being a self-taught musician, I began with piano and harmonica, then eventually branched out to guitar, bass, banjo, among several others. I have ran sound equipment from an early age as well, learning how to set rigs for full bands and how to mix and master tracks for recording purposes. I have met and played with many famous and unfamous musicians, and find that the highest amount of talent is undiscovered and uncultivated. That's where I can come in to help you hone your craft!
I am a recent graduate of the Berklee College of Music, where my primary feild of study was composition and business. My primary (what we called "principal" instrument) was my voice, though I also play piano and trumpet exceptionally and have accompanied many musicians of contrasting flairs throughout my studies. It is my firm belief that a true understanding of music comes from the knowledge of its theory, and my instruction, in addition to catering to all needs and styles and instilling that ever-so important passion for the medium, is rooted in the ability to fluently read and comprehend music.

When your child wants to learn how to sing, wait to begin voice lessons. The voice can be damaged or strained if you start lessons too soon because it is not physically ready to sing every day and undergo the rigorous training required during children's voice lessons. After puberty, or around age 11 or 12, most children are physically and emotionally ready for voice lessons. By following our recommendation and waiting, you protect your child's voice. He or she is then able to learn how to sing successfully for years to come.
Voice lessons improve your singing ability and your vocal performance. Whether you want to audition for a national reality show or prepare for a theatrical performance, the instructors in Musika's network are here to help. These professional teachers create a customized lesson plan for each student that helps you meet your singing goals. We help you discover the best singing genre and style for your voice, and we can guide your song choice. Typically, your teacher will assign you an affordable method book or other supplemental materials for practice. You can find these books online or at local music stores. A partial list of topics you may learn during voice lessons includes, proper breathing control techniques, how to support your voice and increase volume, voice projection tips, how to read musical notation, how to interpret song lyrics and phrases with expression and emotion, and audition and performance tips and techniques, including overcoming stage fright.
Voice lessons for adults focus enhancing technical execution and developing a musical repertoire. Lessons can be taught in various styles, and are tailor made to suit your tastes and skill level. If you are singing for the first time in your life, taking lessons as an adult is a great way to improve your vocal talents.
Customized in-home voice lessons give you the personalized attention you need to succeed. The instructors in Musika's network come to your home and use your piano or keyboard. They help you learn to sing better, project your voice, or prepare for a competition. With one-on-one instruction, you don't have to compete with other students for your teacher's attention. Your teacher will professionally help you choose music that fits your voice whether you prefer singing Rock or Opera. Additionally, you avoid the hassle of fighting traffic on your way to regular lessons. Remain comfortable at home, and achieve your musical goals with customized voice lessons in your house.
To sing your best, focus on your body's health because you really can't sing your best when your body isn't functioning at its best. To improve your health, spend time resting every day. Get plenty of sleep, and protect your voice from overuse. Then eat food that fuels your body. The best diet includes fruit, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein. Limit sweets, alcohol, and caffeine, and drink as much water as you can. Strengthen your core and lungs with daily aerobic exercise and physical activity. As you keep your body strong and healthy, your voice will be healthy too.

My son is truly enjoying his lessons with Chris. He looks forward to them and is motivated to practice. Chris is conscientious and shows up on time and whenever he is supposed to. He communicates clearly if rescheduling is ever required and is accommodating when we need to change the day. I would recommend Chris to anyone.

I feel she is a very professional teacher and I have already recommended your company and her to my friends who have children that play musical instruments. My 8 year old son has never been so enthusiastic to play his violin. His skills have improved almost exponentially since we have began lessons with Lauren. Your company has exceeded my expectations and I am very happy to have found it online.

After my first piano lesson, Polina is easily the best teacher I could have hoped for. Extremely charismatic and excited to help YOU learn the piano. She puts a lot of effort into evaluation your learning style and will no doubt help you make tremendous strides! I'm stoked to continue taking lessons!

Noel is amazing. She is helping me to work toward my vocal goals for auditions to several musical theaters. She has helped me choose strong audition pieces and is teaching excellent ways to get the sound I need in a safe and healthy way. She works outside our lessons on new warm ups and new music pieces. She is the best.

Rahsaan is an extremely talented player who relates really well with my teenagers. He has them both interested in learning. Given Rahsaan's expertise, it's clear that even though they are beginners now, they can learn from him for a long time to come. He's a real nice laid-back guy and both the boys really enjoy their time with him. I've been very impressed and pleased with the experience.

"I've been taking lessons with Richard for just a little over six months now and all I can say is that he is an amazing instructor. He hasn't followed a set one size fits all script in his lessons but has instead worked with my musical interests and at my pace in a way that is truly valuable. He has also kept things fun, interesting, and engaging even at times when I've felt overwhelmed and discouraged. This is an instructor that is truly adaptable to his students and will make sure that they get the most out of their lessons. I would definitely recommend him to anybody that truly wants to unlock their musical potential."

Martina has been a great teacher. Our son is 8 and had taken some piano lessons before starting with Martina. She came right in and got him to improve. She does a great job of giving him just enough of a challenge to make him work and learn but not any pieces that are so overwhelming he can't get them. She has helped him through a lot of early music theory so that he not only can play the piano but understands the music he is reading in all of its complexity.
Review by Brad Schimmer
I have been playing the drums for about 5 years and I have to say that Alvaro is very patient. He has opened me up to new styles of music and I can now play a Songo groove! What I liked most was that he was flexible in what I wanted him to teach me and would also bring in new material specifically to what I wanted him to show me. Overall, great patient teacher and would highly recommend! Thanks Alvaro!

“I took drum lessons from Mark for about 7 months. I have been playing for 38 years but always thrive to learn more. He was able to provide me alternative exercises and help me gain a better understanding of my opportunities. I have been able to take my playing to another level. His approach to teaching is perfect for any level of student, beginner or advanced. He is a true professional and an outstanding person. You won't go wrong with Mark!” Blaine Vaz
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.
