I am driven to guide you to success! I graduated from SUNY Fredonia with a Bachelor Degree in Music Education and am continuing my studies in their graduate program. I perform in my community, direct after school programs, and teach private lessons.
My approach to lesson planning is based on the needs of the student, creating customized approaches to new musical concepts and techniques. I focus on classical training that is age- and ability-appropriate. I incorporate ear training and theory seamlessly into lessons to provide a well rounded music education. My heart is truly in performance, and my goal as a music teacher is to work along with each student to meet his or her musical performance goals. Each lesson is motivating, fun, challenging and worthwhile!
I begin with the basics for beginning students. I believe it is essential to begin with honing each students musicianship. Once I feel they have a firm grasp of beginning musicianship, I introduce them to solo repertoire. For advanced students, I incorporate sight singing as well.
Fortunately, while attending graduate school I was given the opportunity to teach as an associate professor of voice at the Conservatory level. I worked with many different age groups as well as vocal styles. I encouraged my students to perform in a recital at the end of the semester to help them strive for their personal best. It was so wonderful to see how improved everyone was at the end of the year. Although some were nervous my students always thanked me for the opportunity to get up infront of their family and peers to push themselves to the next level. I am hoping to grow a studio of eager individuals who are willing to try new things.
I have experience in rock, pop, metal, blues, funk and country when it comes to bass guitar and can teach beginner to advanced bass. I teach beginner to intermediate guitar and also beginner to intermediate voice. I have taught for over ten years now.

Adults of all ages and abilities are welcome to start taking singing lessons. Learning to sing is a great way to develop your musicianship, confidence, and self-esteem, and is a fun and rewarding skill to learn. Students who have specific goals in mind such as range extension, learning to correct pitch problems, or to correct bad vocal habits and technique, can achieve these goals with the expert vocal coaches in our network. Many students just want to learn to sing for their own enjoyment and love of singing, or would like to join a band or singing group. All lessons are customized with these goals in mind.
If you want a healthy voice, you need a healthy body. That means you need to watch what you eat and drink, spend time working out, and rest properly. Eat healthy meals and snacks when you load up on fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Limit sugar and processed foods. Drink plenty of water rather than caffeine and sugar. When working out, choose activities that strengthen your lungs and heart, and try to do some type of exercise every day. Proper rest includes a good night's sleep. It also involves resting your voice. With your healthy body, enjoy a healthy voice.
Mastering the art of singing can be a long and strenuous process, but taking lessons in your home offers a very convenient way to learn! In-home lessons require a piano or keyboard so your teacher can lead you to success. Adult voice lessons will be tailored to your own individual needs and musical preferences.
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.
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.

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!
Review by La from Issaquah
thank you musika and ed. I never thought of looking for an in-home lesson until I found musika. I have absolutely no hesitation that Ed is beyond capable. He's even offered to meet us at a music store to purchase the correct fitting instrument. how fabulous is that! We've also decided to extend the lesson time from 30 to 45 minutes. All this and just one lesson under our belt. He quickly understood where my daughter is at in level and her style of music. I'm thrilled as can be.

"My daughter is 10 years old and has been taking piano lessons with Mr. Dale J. for almost 4 years now. She is progressing nicely. His kind and gentle way make for a very positive learning experience. Mr. Dale J. is encouraging without being harsh or belittling. He is patient and the ideal instructor for my daughter."
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.

I have known Erin since I attended graduate school at the Hartt School in Connecticut. Last year she came to the college I teach at to give a master class and talk about her experiences as a musician abroad. She has proven that she is a capable and wonderful musician and educator. I highly recommend studying with her if you're lucky enough to have the opportunity!
Review by Andy Snyder
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.

When I started with Darrell, I didn't know anything bout music. Nothing. We started with basic music theory & moved into scales and reading. It hasn't been very long at all, but my confidence is growing quickly. He does ask a lot from you and he expects you to keep up. But I can honestly say that if you are willing to work hard and spend the time at home doing what he asks, you will see the results. He wants you to succeed and takes pride in watching you grow. If you want it as bad as he does, you will see the result very quickly.
Review by Jane A.
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!

"My daughter has been a student with Mark for over a year. She has come so far and has learned so much in such a short time. Mark is extremely talented and knowledgeable. He is very serious, patient and super nice. If your child or if you really WANT to learn the drums, then I highly recommend Mark. He is our third instructor and the best one yet! You will not be disappointed." Michelle S.
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.
