I am a very relaxed and understanding instructor. I have taught everyone from young students to full professionals within my industry. I can help a student at any level learn whatever they need to get to the next level with their vocals. I look forward to meeting you!
I began teaching before I graduated from high school thanks to a tutoring program at the high school. I had so much fun working with the elementary school kids that I decided to build a studio up of my own and ever since i have been working with a number of students ages ranging from 4-80. My students are individually pushed to reach goals that they make for themselves at the start of lessons no matter what that goal might be and I love being able to make a fun journey to that goal. All of my students are highly encouraged to perform in recitals and audtion for local ensembles and competitions.
My teaching experience began in high school, when I started teaching small classes of children ages 3-13 at my church. I continued to develop my teaching abilities in college, when I directed a small choir. My favorite part of directing that choir was the one-on-one sessions (fun on ones, as my singers called them). These one on ones were dedicated to developing each member's individual voice and grasp of vocal technique, so that I could be certain that all of the singers were singing healthily. With my students I like to tackle some classical repertoire in order to hone technique and some modern or musical theater repertoire to be sure my students are having fun learning music!
My methods of choice for instruction are many due to the amount of instruments that I teach and the many levels of mastery within each concentration.
I am a professional composer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, engineer, and music teacher currently living in Boston, MA. I graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2015 with a BM in Songwriting. I choose to spend the vast majority of my time in music, whether recording somebody's song, writing symphonies in my bedroom, gigging in the Greater Boston Area, teaching, or just arguing about music over dinner with a friend.

Taking vocal lessons at any age can be highly rewarding and great fun. Students often take lessons with various aims and goals in mind. Some students want to learn how to increase their vocal range and will have lessons and exercises planned to achieve that particular goal. Some students would like to improve their singing ability in order to feel confident enough to audition for talent shows, competitions, or to join a band or choir. It is quite common for students to take vocal lessons purely because they love to sing and want to improve for their own enjoyment.
For vocalists of all abilities, it is important to keep the voice healthy. Before singing, whether it be a live performance, a lesson, or practice, vocalists should be sure to do a good warm up, which can last anywhere from 15 minutes to 45 minutes depending on the singer or type of singing about to be performed. All singers should make sure they consume plenty of water throughout the day in order to keep the voice hydrated. A dry throat, along with things such as allergies, coughing, alcohol, and tobacco, can irritate the vocal folds and hinder performance levels.
Voice lessons focus on development of vocal skills and breathing techniques. They also help you increase you voice's projection and range. Vocal method books and lesson materials can be purchased from a local music store. You can study a variety of vocal styles ranging from classical and opera to jazz and pop. With help from the trained instructors in Musika's network, learn how to read music and how to interpret lyrics and melodies with emotion during your auditions and performances. Other topics generally included in lessons are how to enjoy music and express yourself with singing, proper breath control, vocal cord protection, vocal projection techniques, how to improve vocal volume, how to read musical notations, interpretation of various singing styles including classical, jazz, country, pop, and opera, how to interpret songs, lyrics, and phrases with the proper emotion, and performance techniques and tips, including how to manage stage fright.
In home voice lessons are a convenient way to learn the art of singing! The instructors in our network are qualified to teach a variety of styles ranging from Opera to R&B. If you are interested in auditioning for local competitions or even reality TV shows like American Idol or The Voice, the instructors in our network can definitely help you prepare. Most voice lesson music and materials can be purchased online or at a local music store.
Learning to sing as a child is fun, rewarding, and vastly beneficial to overall development. Children can develop their ability to accurately recreate pitch, theory knowledge, and singing technique. Young students can also develop their concentration, listening skills, and familiarity with different musical genres. Learning to sing can also be character building, such as instilling a hard-working attitude, developing self-discipline and confidence through practice, taking exams, entering competitions, or performing live. Students are advised to start their lessons no earlier than 12 years of age, as they have yet to reach vocal maturity before that age.

My daughter really enjoys her lessons with Pavel. She is an absolute beginner and Pavel is right with her as she learns the basics. She is completely engaged and always looks forward to her lesson. He packs a lot of learning into their 30 minute time slot - he gets right to it as soon as he walks in the door! He is a great teacher - we highly recommend!
Review by Tuvana
He is incredibly patient and really customizes his teaching style to the child. Both of my children are learning piano with him; they have learned so much and really enjoy the lessons. In fact, my daughter asked to learn another instrument (guitar) with him and is making great progress with that, too.

Lara is highly intelligent and knowledgeable in her profession. She is cheerful and personable, and has established a good rapport with students and staff alike. I have found Lara to be a highly competent, personable, patient, kind-hearted, and deeply caring person who is skilled professionally and interpersonally.
Review by Nancy
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!
Review by Kristin
Ted S. is teaching clarinet to one of my children, and piano to two others. He is extremely knowledgeable, and very encouraging. His teaching methods are keeping my children enthused about their lessons, and without that, you have nothing. Two of my children were taking piano lesson from another teacher for the past year, and not progressing. Ted has been able to evaluate their skills individually, determine what was missing in their music education, and begin again with some early basics they seem to have missed. I am convinced we are finally moving forward, and am very happy about that. I wish I would have made this change much earlier.

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 :)

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 Blaine Vaz
“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
Review by Leslyn
Steve is an excellent instructor. My son has really connected with him and he is learning the guitar quickly. Steve is patient and never rushes through a lesson in order to make it fit within the session time limit. In addition, before he leaves, he writes notes and instructions for my son to follow. By the next lesson, my son is confident in what Steve has taught him. Most importantly, Steve builds my son's confidence in his own own ability and progress after each lesson.
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.
