I'm passionate about music. I've written, conducted, and performed music as a multi-instrumentalist. I've also taught privately (on a number of concert band instruments) and written on the subject.
I have been teaching music since 2000 trough individual lessons and group instruction. I gained further expereince as the director of children choirs and the Music Director at The Bridge. I have developed music and drama programs for children, including a flute teaching method in order to make learning fun and successful. I am looking to have that method published, possibly through online-live classes, in the future. I have been performing music since I was a child. Igrew up singing in church and school choirs and playing in my school band. I continued in High School in the Band, Jazz Band, Choir and Show Choir. In college I pursued a duel degree in Counseling and Music. My music degree included Music History, Performance, Theory, and Conducting. I performed in the band as First Chair Flute and in the Chorale, Chamber Choir and Chapel Choir. I have been a member of various concert bands, though unfortunately there is not one in my are that I can currently join, or I would. I do perform solo flute and vocals at events. I am a current member of the Bridgewater State University Alumni Chamber Choir. In addition to music, I have also been involved in theater. I have performed with famous actors and musicians at the Annual Fundraising Galas at The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp and at The Kennedy Center for Perfoming Arts in honor of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward in 1992. I had a staring cast role in "Godspell" in 1998 at Assumption College and was in the chorus for other productions, including "A Chorus Line". In 2004 I had a staring role "The Queen of Bingo" in Boston, MA. I have taught summer camp and afterschool programs in Music and Drama, and I continue to work with local programs.
Being a new teacher I can't speak to really any past experience. All I can say is that music has to be fun period. You're not going to practice if you don't enjoy what you're doing!
The most rewarding thing for me as a teacher is too see my students have fun with their proccess. To watch them grow and as musicans as well as people. My goal is to help create a fun and effective approach to music and provide them with a solid musical foundation to blast off from!
Hi! My name is Ashley and I am passionate about teaching music! Growing up, I was big into Musical Theatre, but I also had an older brother who really got me into rock music. I made my professional theatre debut in the 7th grade, and my career took off from there! I pursued a degree in Musical Theatre, and went on to "pound the pavement" in New York City, as they say, working in various facets and degrees of the musical theatre industry. Missing home and nature, I moved back to Massachusetts and took up teaching. I began teaching students in-home, prior to purchasing my baby grand piano which I currently use in my studio today! I went back to school to obtain my Masters of Music in Music Education, and continued to perform but this time in rock bands! I am currently in three rock bands, Rocket Queen (A tribute to Guns N' Roses), NOTB (a tribute to Iron Maiden), and NIB (a tribute to Black Sabbath). In my free time I enjoy performing showtunes for memory impaired patients at assisted living and nursing facilities.

Background checks available on instructors. Instructor can opt to have a background check on file. You can request to only be connected with teachers that have a check. The choice is yours.
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.
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.
When you want to sing better but don't have hours of extra time each week, you need in-home voice lessons. They're convenient and practical. A trained and professional instructor from Musika's network comes to your home and uses your keyboard or piano to teach you how to sing better. Your instructor can help you choose a song that fits your voice or supervise your efforts to learn voice control. Don't let your busy schedule and to-do list keep you from improving your singing ability. Sign up for in-home voice lessons, and become the singer you want to be.
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. The instructors in our network can help you reach your musical and stylistic goals!
Many young children want to sing like their musical heroes and icons. Musika, however, recommends that kids wait until puberty to start voice lessons. After age 11 or 12, kids are physically and emotionally mature enough to handle the rigors of regular voice lessons. Starting lessons sooner could cause permanent vocal strain or damage. Wait until your children start puberty and reach the recommended age. Then provide in-home or in-studio lessons that teach them how to sing without harming their voice.

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.

Pavel is doing a great job with my 6 year old son. Pavel is doing a great job helping my son focus on technique and rhythm, which is something previous instructors weren't so successful with. Pavel is organized / structured / systematic, which is what my son needs now, but I hope he relaxes a bit as the lessons continue so that more "joy" comes through.

"My daughter is 10 years old and has been taking piano lessons with Mr. Dale J. for almost 4 years now. She is progressing nicely. His kind and gentle way make for a very positive learning experience. Mr. Dale J. is encouraging without being harsh or belittling. He is patient and the ideal instructor for my daughter."

Ed is THE best instructor I've ever had and I've had many instructors over the years in various fields of study. Ed met us at a music store to help choose a guitar, this is after he first called and asked all the right questions. He's supplied my daughter with just the right amount of paper work and just the right amount of new techniques. By this I mean to say that Ed connects with the pace my daughter learns at. I highly recommend Ed AND Musika.
Review by Ruslan
She is the most amazing teacher ever. She is not only w great teacher but she's so fun to work with. She has taught me so many things in such little amount of time things I didn't even know I could do. I recommend Andrea to everyone. She is an amazing singer and cares a lot about her students. She's the best!!

Cory is simply the greatest instructor ever! His 30 year plus teaching experience along with his knowledge of ever longer in music composition and performance make a real difference if you're in for learning the right way. Thank you Cory for teaching me not only the chords but also the history behind it and awesome tricks on getting better faster ;)
Review by Marcia Hecht
Karleen has really turned it around for me. My previous teacher (not from Musika) had me feeling anxious, upset, and incapable...NOT the desired result! Karleen's method is clear, appropriate for my beginning level, and (best of all) actually lets me achieve some progress! I'm actually looking forward to my lessons now!
Review by Jennifer
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!!

“My son and I have been taking lessons with Lynn for 5 or 6 years now. She is very patient with younger students (& older students having "senior moments"). She is also flexible in her lessons in that if we want to work on theory, jazz, rock, blues, she will cater to our requests.” – Karl B., C.P.A., Aug 2015
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.
