I have been giving private music lessons for the past 10 years to students of all age groups. I am always looking to broaden the minds of aspiring beginners and the advanced players who seek to further their musical odyssey's. I enjoy all genres of music. I feel that to be inspired you have to have an appreciation to all styles, for it will keep you more open minded to all possibility's of learning, writing and performing music. I feel that music through it's ability to envoke many feelings and emotions, it can help break barriers, it can help with basic reading, writing, and arithmetic. As well as motor skills I like to make my lessons fun, easy and fullfilling for everyone so they may attain every possible amount of knowledge through my teachings.
My teaching style is an active and open learnig environment where I enjoy fostering creativity while reinforcing the discipline required of learning an instrument. I like to see students advancing in performance while learnig the fundamenals and basics of music theory.

I thoroughly enjoy teaching anyone who shows interest in music! Because learning requires concentration, The atmosphere in my studio is light, open and colorful. We keep it casual, fun and upbeat. Each student plays a baby grand piano, which offers a full sound. I have a sound system with microphone, used for vocal audition technique.
I have been passionate about music since my early years. In 4th grade I picked up the Cello and then in 5th grade we were allowed to try band instruments and I never looked back. I chose the Baritone Horn and played all through elementary, junior and high school as well as it was my major instrument in college. As a junior in high school I taught myself to play both the trombone and guitar. Trombone became my minor instrument and expand my playing to orchestras and Jazz ensembles. I college I tried out for my first show as a performer on stage and have been doing ever since and continue to this day. I love the spotlights. I love sharing my enjoyment with students both as a teacher in the public schools and privately in a lesson environment. I enjoy writing music and have many songs in my portfolio over the years.

Adults start taking singing lessons for a variety of reasons. Some students maybe sang in their younger days such as in their school or church choir and want to start singing again, others aspire to become a recording artist and some want to prepare themselves for auditions such as The X-Factor, American Idol, or The Voice. Advanced students may want to work on a specific technique such as building strength in the head voice or improving their support and breath management. Singing is a great way to express yourself creatively and can also develop confidence and self-esteem in students of all ages and abilities.
During voice lessons students will begin the wonderful journey into music interpretation and performance. To begin, students will focus on learning to read music, using breath control to support singing, and enhancing performance through the emotional interpretation of lyrics.
In-home voice lessons are the perfect gift for budding singers. Talented kids and adults appreciate the instructors in Musika's network who know how to coax the right notes out of any musician. Whether your child is into hip-hop or prefers classical music, the experienced instructors in our network provide guidance on music selection and vocal care. Your singer simply walks into the music room when it's time for lessons and prepares to sing. Give the budding singers in your life a chance to explore their talent. You never know, in-home voice lessons may be just what you need as you nurture America's next great recording artist.
Children who want to take voice lessons should wait until they're at least 11 or 12 years old. At that time, their voice is maturing, and they are emotionally ready to practice regularly and apply themselves. Starting voice lessons before puberty could cause vocal cord damage and strain. That damage potentially jeopardizes future vocal performances. By waiting a few years, children protect their voice. Then they can start lessons and prepare to audition for local, regional, and national competitions or performances in their teen and adult years.
Singing is a physical endeavor that requires effort, strength, and coordination. The best way to ensure good vocal health is to sing and train using safe techniques. Bad technique or abusing the voice can cause vocal fatigue or even damage, such as nodules.The quickest and easiest way to wear out the voice is through shouting, screaming, or forcing the voice - often in order to sing higher notes. By avoiding such bad habits, as well as by limiting the consumption of vocal irritants such as alcohol, tobacco, and food with a high sugar content, singer can reduce the risk of injury or vocal fatigue.

“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

We've only had a few lessons with Elisa, but so far we really like her. She has a lot of great suggestions for solo pieces as well as orchestral music that involves all 3 of my boys, while also including some Christian music that we can play at church. She is very patient in explaining the lessons and encouraging!

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 :)

“Lynn is my music hero! She can listen to any song and write down the chords. She will adjust to make it easier or harder whatever your abilities. I have a busy schedule and often don't have time to practice between lessons and she is cool with that. She also will adjust lesson times when she is able which fits my hectic schedule. I'm glad my first guitar teacher "fired" me ....that allowed me to meet Lynn.” - Carol A., M.D., Aug 2015

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 4-year-old has had several lessons with Martina now, and he has learned a lot. Obviously, it is challenging to teach such a young child, and he has learned quite a lot in a short time, and is very excited to learn about violin and for his lessons. I think Martina is doing an excellent job, is quite patient, and is teaching him in such a way that he can really remember his new skills from week to week. We look forward to many more lessons with Ms. Martina!

Being I'm a woman, I was a little apprehensive having a male teacher (he knew this), however, after my trial lesson I realized he knows what he's doing and I had nothing to worry about!! He is very knowledgable on the piano and vocal techniques. He has a big vocal range so he is able to hit the high notes to be able to show me how I need to sing it. He is also phenomenal on the piano. I would highly recommend him for vocal and piano. Also, I don't know how to sight read music and he is teaching how to. I've been taking lessons with him for a month (my trial lesson was on 1/11) and I have already seen a huge improvement. I am an intermediate level singer looking to improve my vocal technique, breathing and improve my confidence in my singing abilities, Alex is definitely helping me do that.

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.

Darrell is A-Maz-Ing! He demands results from his students and therefore results come quickly. The time he spends teaching is intense and packed with great instruction. He is a tough teacher but offers lots of valuable instruction that is applicable for music as well as life in general. I highly recommend Darrell if you are ready for results!
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.
