First off, I make sure that my student has a strong foundational understanding for the breathing mechanism and how it functions. I emphasize that singing is not that much different than speech, in that we never run out of air when we are talking, so why should it happen when we sing? My philosophy is that a healthy breath and body produces the healthiest sound, free of anything extraneous. Many students come to me with an upcoming audition, and so I like to explore performance techniques within the song, such as character development and acting/gestures to make for a well-rounded perfomance. I often "tie a bow" at the end of lessons, summarizing everything that was covered and asking the student to articulate a list of things they will work on for next time.
I consider myself to be a positive person who loves to laugh. I feel that music is an expression of oneself, so learning should be fun and be full of success. For beginners, I set small goals to start then add on more as I see thae student can handle more. For intermediate and Advanced students, I challenge them, but also make sure they are playing/singing things they like. I hope to foster a love in music, and bring out the musician in all of them.
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!
My musical background includes over 35 years of experience as a singer and actor, performing for live audiences and appearing in independent audio/video recordings. I began ear and vocal training as a very young child enrolled in Suzuki style violin at the Montessori Educare school, and private piano and voice instruction at the Boston Conservatory of Music. As a young adult, I studied “Freeing the Natural Voice” with Professor Kristen Linklater while enrolled at Emerson College, and later had private jazz vocal instruction (at New England Conservatory of Music and Berklee College of Music). In 2010, I earned a BA in Entrepreneurship from Lesley University, and in 2011 received my M.Ed. in Education and Entrepreneurship from the Special Studies Program at Harvard University Graduate School of Education. The encouragement that I receive from my own mentors, and the success of former students, continues to inspire me to share my love of music with others. I love working with students of all ages, and skill levels, as they reach for, and achieve their goals. I am available to instruct students online, in their home, and/or at a reserved practice room or sound studio.
I have been teaching for over 5 years. I began as a private lesson coach and have been consistenatly growing with students for around 7 years. As well as song and technical technique, my students and I also focus in on composition, songwriting, improvosition, discovery of sound and direction, and artistry. I combine both clossical and modern technique's and combine them into a personalized lesson and practice plan for the student. I believe in steady but fun practice out side of classes and encourage my students to run through pieces or excersizes around 5 times a day or for around 15 minutes. I work and thrive with students of all musical backgrounds and ages and am looking to help students ignite a new creative world within themselves!

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 will focus on developing proper breathing and vocal technique to improve your singing. You will learn how to support and project your voice even as you learn to read music. You will also learn how to interpret different styles of music, develop performance techniques, and emotionally interpret song lyrics and phrases. The most important thing you will learn in voice lessons is how to express yourself through singing!
Keeping your voice healthy starts with keeping your entire body healthy. The voice is contained within the body, so following a balanced diet, getting adequate sleep, and reducing stress are all keys to keeping your body and voice healthy. Singers should avoid excess caffeine, smoking, and consumption of alcohol and drugs. Excessive screaming, speaking, performing in loud or crowded places without proper amplification, and singing for a prolonged amount of time without rest should all be avoided. Singers should always stay hydrated by drinking purified water, and try to stay away from sugary drinks and colas.
Take adult voice lessons, and sing your best whether you perform for your pets or for a national audience. Voice lessons taught by trained instructors in Musika's network teach you breathing control and voice projection as well as vocal care. We walk with you every step of the way whether you sing Classical, Opera, Country, or another musical style. The teachers in our network can also help you pick songs that match your vocal tone. With practical exercises to do at home, master the art of singing for auditions, performances, or fun. You can sing your best every day when you take adult voice lessons.
Taking singing lessons at an early age can be a great advantage in the vocal development of students. Young students can get a head start in their singing abilities as they will learn from an early age how to hear and recreate pitch, work on their timing, start to build strength and coordination in their singing, develop a good understanding of how the voice works, learn music theory, and can be exposed to a variety of styles and musical genres. We recommend that students take lessons from about the age of 11 or 12, as not to place too much pressure and strain on their voices before they have fully matured.
Musika offers personalized and customized one-on-one voice lessons in your home. The convenience of at home lessons saves you time. Instead of driving to a studio, fighting traffic, or putting off other important activities, stay home and let an instructor from Musika's network come to you. They can offer instruction in every musical genre. Learn classical for theater performances or master R&B for a reality TV audition. You only need a piano and sheet music, and then you are set to learn how to sing from the comfort of your home.

Mike has been working with my son Robert for over a year and has just started working with my daughter Kate. Mike is both a great musician and a good teacher. He connects with the kids and keeps them engaged. He is able to tailor the lesson to focus on music that is interesting to each child. He also encourages the students to participate in a public setting which is great. I would highly recommend Mike.

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 :)

Giorgi has made learning cello even more fun. From the sympathetic, "It is hard" to the precise, "Be careful about the curve of the thumb" he has strengthened learning in every lesson, without being overwhelming. He started playing a little duet on only the 3rd lesson or so, which made me feel, even as a beginner, that I'm already starting to make (occasionally screachy) music. He has suggested a variety of drills and practice techniques which have also sped up the process a lot. And he has a good sense of humor and surprising amount of patience.

Usually I don't write reviews. I am compelled to write for Feng. I've experience finding/working with many music teachers over the years for different instruments (piano, flute, sax) for kids. I think Feng is the best, he is so passionate about music, he encourages the kids. He teaches thoroughly - you can tell he knows lot about saxophone. I would definitely recommend Feng!!
Review by Howard
We value Chelsea for the quality of her lessons, but also for the flexibility of her schedule. She has worked around family vacations, impromptu summer camps and the upcoming school year. Emily is better prepared to start middle school band this year due to flute lessons from Chelsea and we plan to continue the lessons for the foreseeable future.
Review by Richardpoplawski
I feel she is a very professional teacher and I have already recommended your company and her to my friends who have children that play musical instruments. My 8 year old son has never been so enthusiastic to play his violin. His skills have improved almost exponentially since we have began lessons with Lauren. Your company has exceeded my expectations and I am very happy to have found it online.

Ali was an amazing voice coach! She taught in a way that made sense to me, and helped me find the voice placements I needed. I didn't know I could sound like that! My development with her was leaps and bounds rather than tiny dreadful steps that happen when you don't know what's going on! Ali was dedicated to helping me work on an audition for a music scholarship and I nailed it all thanks to her, seriously. I can't thank her enough! She helped me with the tools and confidence I needed to sing in the real world alone rather than just back row in a large choir.
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 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.
