I have traveled all over the Continental U.S, Germany, Switzerland and Africa as a featured vocalist and workshop clinician. Classically trained and raised in the church, I draw from these different points of reference to add flavor and spice to my performances. My wide range, clear tone, professionalism and modesty set me apart from other vocalists. I have been professionally teaching both individual and group voice lessons for over 13 years, having successfully trained in the 5 year Music Therapy and Vocal Performance Dual Degree program at Berklee College of Music, I look forward to a promising career equipping and educating the next stars of the music industry!
I like to start with warm-up exercises and activities to get your blood flowing, and then we dive right into the lesson. It varies depending on the instrument that I am teaching. For instance, for a piano lesson, I might start with the scale of the key of the song that we would be working on for that lesson. If I'm teaching voice, I always start with vocal warm-ups, but often times I add movement and breathing exercises as well. I base my lessons off of what the students want to learn. This way they can get the most out of their lesson and they won't be bored.
I am always very positive. I want lessons to be fun and exciting for my students. Music is a wonderful gift and I love sharing that gift with others!!
Building rapport is vital in a student-teacher relationship. I encourage the student to make personal goals of progress in addition to the goals I have set for them. I give the student constructive feedback on progress and acknowledge accomplishments. I try keeping an inspirational and open-ended environment for exploration, for music making is fun! I love contributing to the education and growth of fellow musicians.
I'm your friendly neighborhood nerd whose geekbait of choice happens to be the linguistic, psychoacoustic, anatomical, sociological (the list goes on) workings of the human voice. My academic background in music and voice (9 years classical piano, BA in Linguistics and Biology with a premed concentration, various choirs, Arabic Music Ensemble, Self Study with interviews with top voice researchers) is as unique as my custom catered curriculum will be to YOU. I apply CONCRETE research from any and ALL fields of study concerning vocal production to ensure efficacy in my curricula towards the end goal of making you sound as close to the singing voice you hear in your head as is SCIENTIFICALLY possible.

Your child may beg for voice lessons so he or she can sing like a professional, but waiting is the best option for your child's future musical career. Before puberty, the voice is not physically prepared for extended vocal training or performance. It could suffer damage or strain if you pursue children's voice lessons before your child is ready. Protect your child's vocal cords by starting voice lessons after he or she is 11 or 12 years old. You both will be glad you waited to give your child voice lessons after he or she matures.

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.
To protect your voice and keep it healthy, protect your body. You'll want to start by getting enough rest. Rest your body by going to bed on time every night, and rest your voice by limiting the amount of singing and yelling you do. Next, eat a balanced diet. Vegetables, fruits, and whole grains fuel your body and improve your voice. Then exercise. Aerobic exercise is especially important because it improves your lung capacity and helps your body fight illness. Finally, stop smoking. This habit damages your voice and your lungs. With a focus on protecting your body, you also protect your voice and keep it healthy and strong.

Melissa is very encouraging, positive, supportive and patient. She knows how to explain the technical details of flute and music notation to kids in a way that makes sense to them. She has been reliable so far turning up on time and calling if there is a need to reschedule. I would definitely recommend her to others.

Amber is personal and cares about her students. She is flexible in her schedule and maintains a professional attitude in her lessons. Her want for her students to succeed makes her excel as a teacher. She is very knowledgeable about music and extremely experienced. Additionally, she includes external activities aside from lessons for the students who wish to advance themselves externally. Really a great teacher who offers great opportunity.

Travis is an extremely knowledgeable guitarist and teacher. Travis is equally comfortable in playing/teaching jazz, rock, blues, or classical styles. I really like the way he explains things and he has the ability to make difficult material seem simpler. Travis is very likeable, enthusiastic, and always very professional. I think Travis would be great teaching either children or adults because he's very patient. My learning experience with Travis has been outstanding. He taught me some great techniques for chord substitution and for soloing. I'll continue to work with Travis because he inspires me to be a better guitarist. I think he could really help me with composing because he writes some great songs too! Thanks Travis!

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!

Stephanie is an excellent voice teacher! Our 10-year-old daughter enjoys her lessons with Stephanie each week. She has an amazing way of connecting with our daughter through music. Stephanie knows how to offer constructive feedback in a positive way that keeps our daughter interested and wanting to learn more. I would recommend Stephanie without hesitation.

Mrs. Regnarene is an awesome teacher!!! She found musical aids that appealed to my 5 year old daughter and used them to help teach her piano. She has a lot of patience and I could tell she puts in the work before class to have a lesson ready for my daughter. She is always punctual, friendly and respectful. I would recommend her to any parents who want to start their kids off with a good foundation in piano. Jermain T. Riverview, FL

My 4 year old son is quite energetic. Another piano teacher tried to teach him before Peter and could not get my son to listen to him at all. That teacher told me that my son had no interest and that we needed to wait before having my son take lessons. Peter started teaching my son a few weeks later. He quickly developed a great rapport with my son. I was astounded when my son sat down and listened to Peter during the first lesson. Peter has remarkable patience and is a natural working with children. He knows when to follow the child's lead. My son is very interested in how the piano works, so Peter takes the time to teach him about this. He is able to use my son's interests (superheroes, Lego, Star Wars, etc.) to refocus him back to playing the piano. Between lessons, he brainstorms on how he can teach my son better. For example, my son was playing the notes, but not understanding rhythm, so Peter looked into it and came back the next week with a new plan which helped. My son looks forward to his lesson every week. When he hears the doorbell ring on lesson day, he exclaims, "Yay! Peter's here!"

Very knowledgeable on every aspect of music theory. I listen to recording artists playing various classical pieces, Dan's playing is much like a recording artist's playing. Always on time. Winning happy personality, a great role model. Puts me at ease when I am playing. Have two friends who hold music degrees, I count him a third, something special about the minds and personalities of good pianists. Thanks Dan.

Laura is the kind of teacher you wish you had in all your studies: gracious, easy-going, light-hearted, yet behind the easy going exterior is an excellent musical mind with everything at her fingertips. I've had about 5 teachers in my life who count as really influential people, and Laura easily fits that category. She lets you be yourself so that you are fully present rather than old-school doctrinaire style, what I call "stiff as a German, sig-heil" teachers. She's the polar opposite. Brava, Laura! Thank you so much!
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.
