Throughout the many years of teaching, I have compiled my own method exercises from different schools (American, Japanese, and British). For younger students, I usually work comprehensively on technique, music literacy, music theory and ear training. For adults, our lessons will be driven by your goals - we can work on repertoires, technique, arranging, transposition, sight reading, improvisation, etc. I encourage students to take their own notes and use technology to practice. Yes, there will be a practice log! It's fun but it's also a commitment.
I am a passionate and highly energized teacher. I graduated from Rhode Island College in 2010, and since then my life in music has taken me to numerous places. I did a tour in Austria and the Czech Republic, I have had the opportunity to take private lessons/master classes with some of the worlds best, and I get to share my love and knowledge of music with my students.
My teaching experience dates back to when I was in elementrary school. I've taught privately off and on for almost two decades. I love to encourage students to be the best they can be, to love the music that they make, and also to be proud of their accomplishments.
I love teaching, and my teaching style reflects today's industry and styles. Incorporating production, arranging, harmony elements into my lessons makes students more eager to discover their own style and try new things. I love to create a nice relationship with the students, find out about his/her musical goals and passions and encourage him/her to explore his/her creativity to the maximum. I am always creating a friendly environment, so students can feel comfortable and willing to keep studying music. I am a young, friendly and warm person. Little kids like my energy and adults like my professional approach and hard working.
For beginning voice students who are children, I start by doing a few vocal warm-ups so that I can determine what we need to work on and how they are producing the sound. From there, we will select a solo repertoire appropriate to the age. I find that traditional American folk songs and other simple but beautiful music can be a good way to begin learning healthy vocal technique. We will also do short theory exercises tailored to go with the student's repertoire so that the student is actively building musicianship skills that will help them to sight read music more easily in the future. For adults of any skill level, we will also begin with a few vocal warm-ups, and then see what repertoire the student wants to work on so that I can tailor the repertoire to their interests to keep things interesting and fun.

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.
If you want to sing like a professional, you need adult voice lessons. They can improve your vocal range, perfect your tone and protect your voice. You also learn techniques you can practice every day at home. Instructors in Musika's network are skilled in teaching every musical genre. With their help, you can master R&B, Classical, Country, and other genres and styles. In your home or in a teacher's private studio, learn how to be a better singer as you prepare for national reality singing competitions, local performances, or personal entertainment. Then enjoy singing like a professional thanks to adult voice lessons.
Musika offers one-on-one, in-home singing lessons that are designed specifically for each individual student. Whether your lesson takes place in the studio or at home, students will get the exact same lesson content, with the only difference being the location. Parents will find home singing lessons a much more convenient option for their child, as it saves the time and costs of transporting their children to and from the studio. Younger students will find that learning to sing in the comfort of their own homes greatly benefits their development as they are learning in a supportive, secure, and familiar environment.
The voice is the only instrument that actively requires the use of your entire body for its function. This is why maintaining the health of your body in general is crucial to maintaining the health of your voice. Smoking, excessive drinking of alcohol, caffeine and the use of illegal drugs or certain medications is strongly discouraged. Singers are encouraged to drink room temperature water to promote the hydration of their vocal chords. Excessive screaming, loud singing, or singing for long amounts of time without a rest can cause damage to your voice and should be avoided. It is important to eat a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins to keep your body and voice healthy. Daily exercise is strongly encouraged, especially activities that require the use of your lungs such as swimming, running, cycling, or aerobics classes, all of which will increase your breath control capacity when singing.
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.

Danette is a delightful instructor. She always brings a wealth of knowledge, excitement, and enthusiasm to piano lessons with my daughter. She is not only skilled at piano, but she has a wonderful voice quality that she uses to help convey certain techniques and to highlight various points where she intends to draw the students attention.
Review by Svea Bryan
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"
Review by Terri
Caitlyn is friendly, helpful and still holds my high-school aged daughter accountable for practicing. She also makes sure the music technique is mastered correctly during the lessons - they work hard and still have a good time together. I can highly recommend her as a flute teacher. My daughter is very happy & grateful to have found Caitlyn as a teacher.
Review by Jeremy
Dr. Nedra C is incredible. She knows her craft in and out, it truly shows in her teaching. As well, she cares a great deal about the student, and preps plenty of material outside of the lesson for those that she teaches. I've had many different music teachers and am aware who's talented and cares, and who isn't. Dr. Nedra C is true phenomenal, and any student would be lucky to have her.
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!!

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.
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.
Review by Violetking
Bill has been a great teacher for both my 6 yr. old and my 8 yr. old. He is always on time, keeps them engaged, and gives them just enough of a challenge for the next week. They are both beginners, but I am surprised by how much they already know after just a month or so of lessons. Both kids are practicing willingly and look forward to 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.
