We'll then reach out to the teachers for you.

Continue with that teacher or try someone else.
To begin with, I teach my students how to develop their own customized warm up method including breathing and stretching. They'll learn to understand their own vocal mechanism and how it resonates, as well as how breath support works and how to recognise and approach vocal difficulties and tranformations.
The method of teaching doesn't change for the age of the person I'm teaching. The method I use is this: 1) Assess where the student is in life 2) Assess where the student is musically 3) Assess the needs and desires of the student (and guardians, if applicable) 4) Review various in-print and self-made resources 5) Develop a flexible comprehensive cirriculumn 6) Encouage, encourage, encourage
My approach to teaching is based on establishing a safe and comfortable atmosphere, in which teacher and student develop trust through mutual respect for each other and the creative learning process. One of my main goals as a voice instructor is helping students develop their true authentic and unique voice (sound, message, style, presence, etc) through engaging and challenging practice. Generally, a voice lesson with me will consist of the following: · Physical and Vocal Warm Ups · Breathing Exercises (with Anatomical Images/Video) · Drilling (Scales variations in time, phrasing, pitch, etc) · Song Selections (developing standard and unique repertoires that highlight student strengths) · Focal Skill (a technical skills practice challenge) · Homework (to be announced)
I am a enthusiatic and dedicated instructor who loves working with students who love music. In 2015 I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor's of Music degree in Professional Music. Performing all over the nation has been one of the most rewarding experiences of musical career as well as creating music that touches peoples lives. I have performed at the Bean Town Jazz Festival as well as in the Boston Symphony Orchestra Hall.
I blend the tried-and-true poise of classical technique with holistic approaches to satisfy two purposes: 1) the traditional desire to hone skill with practice and discipline, and 2) the psychological development of the student's independent musicianship. Music without expression is only sport. While technique, exercise, rigor, and history are essential in order to develop the deepest possible understanding of music, I aim to go beyond this to shape the independent expressionism of each student.

Students can have fun learning how to sing from as young as 11 or 12 years old. As students of this age are approaching puberty, their voices are not fully matured, so care must be taken not to place too much pressure or strain on the voice for fear of risking injury. That said, through lessons and practice, students can learn safe vocal techniques, how to look after their voices, develop their ability to hear and recreate pitch, and work on their musical theory. Students can also improve their concentration levels, confidence, and self-esteem.
Invest in your body to maintain your healthy voice. That might sound strange, but a healthy voice requires a healthy body. Your investment starts with a diet that's rich in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and water. You'll want to limit sweets and preservatives. Next, stop smoking, limit alcohol, and avoid illegal drugs. They damage your body and your voice. Every day, exercise. Improved health and fitness improves your ability to fight illness and project your voice. Finally, rest. Go to bed on time at night, and avoid yelling, cheering, or singing for extended times. With a healthy body, you maintain a healthy voice.

I started taking voice lessons from Ali when I was 19 and a sophomore in college. Though I was hesitant to be starting "late", I felt very comfortable with Ali and her teaching style. We identified several key issues that really made a difference and improved my voice technique. It was fun to sing popular, beautiful songs in our recital! If only I lived in Los Angeles, I would still be a student. Highly recommended!

Brett is an accomplished musician, who shared his knowledge at a level that my five year old understands. He is polite and relaxed in his mannerisms but take a serious approach to focusing on the lesson. He is very patient and engaging with the attention span you'd expect from a kindergartener. His motto ever is "sometime you learn faster by going slow"

Rebecca has been super with my son! He is 8yrs old and has mild aspergers. He has never played an instrument before but after one lesson with his teacher he could keep a beat on his drums. She is able to keep his attention and really makes it fun! She is flexible and easy going. I highly recommend her for any lessons. Very nice teacher! Thank you Rebecca for your outstanding service!!

I am in my 60s and decided to get back into playing my guitar. I thought taking lessons would be a good way to formalize the endeavor. I did have some concern about whether working with a teacher would work out as I've behave only played for my own enjoyment for a long time. Peter and I have had a few lessons together and I am truly enjoying the experience. He is very supportive and flexible. We arrived at a three gold approach that is really working for me. We focus on developing a playlist, learning some of the more iconic tunes from leading artist that I would have a hard time learning on my own and developing some technical skills related to style and music theory. Now I look forward to my next lesson and am already playing better and enjoying the journey. Peter is a great teacher I'm lucky to have the opportunity to work with him.

Dan gave private clarinet lessons to my daughter, Annie, for two years. During that time, she excelled as a member of the middle school band, and maintained first-chair. Dan is an excellent teacher, and Annie looked forward to having one-on-one time with him. In addition to practicing pieces with her, he helped her with scales and greatly improved her tone quality.

David is not only a great musician and educator but also a delightful human. We began using David six years ago as a piano teacher for my two boys. Since then my eldest moved on to acoustic and electric guitar and my youngest electric and stand up bass. Somewhere along the way I began to take guitar lessons also (I was David's most bearded student at age 48). David always came prepared to lead but also to follow, he often asked what we were listening to and taught us how to play it. His ability to listen to a piece of music and transcribe it always left me amazed, we have several notebooks full of songs we learned individually or played as a group. After a shoulder injury David continued to impress by teaching me music theory instead of our usual lesson. I could go on forever, David made a positive impact on my family and feel fortunate to have met him.

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.

Henry has been a great piano teacher since I started lessons about a month ago, and he is helping me realize a lifelong dream. He is patient, plays beautifully, is easy to learn from and a very nice person. I took lessons as a child for a year or so, but never followed up over the years. I always said that I would once I retired and found the right instructor. That time is now. Thank you Henry and Musika!
Review by James F.
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!
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.
