I received my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Voice Performance at the University of South Florida in Tampa. I moved here to north Dallas this past August to begin a PhD Program in music theory at UNT. I've got two years of private voice teaching experience, and I've had students from 12-45, male and female. I've also worked as a staff singer at churches, and tutored music theory as an employee of the University of South Florida.
I believe we are most productive when we keep a positive mindset. I try to let encouragement be the foundation of my teaching. I truly want you to reach your highest singing potential, which will happen with consistent practice. Each lesson will consist of vocal exercises which should be recorded so that the student can practice with it throughout the week. And then we will work on songs that either I or the student will choose. I provide a weekly practice log for my students to help them keep track of their personal practice times. I want students to learn and sing the style of songs that they love, but will also ask students to sing classical songs so that their voice will improve to its highest potential. I will tailor my instruction to the student's wants and needs.
During my college years, I was a scholarship singer at First Presbyterian Church, and a member of the Sam Houston State University Chorale. Past experiences include singing with the UTB/TSC Master chorale, with which he performed at the Texas Music Educators Association. I have experience teaching guitar lessons and performing at the Alpha Omega Academy in Huntsville, Texas. In March of 2013,I traveled abroad with SHSU and attended a week long music therapy conference/workshop in Montpellier, France. While there, I performed “Esclavo y Amo” in a concert composed of both SHSU students and students from L’Université Paul-Valéry, Montpellier III.
I began my love of music in highschool, being in the marching band for 4 years playing several different instruments (percussion, trumpet, trombone, tuba). Singing became my choice of career in college, and while in college, I was able to perform major roles in operas such as Porgy and Bess in which I played the role of Serena at the age of 19, making me the youngest person to have ever performed that huge role. I was able to compose several pieces, two of which were premiered in four different continents. I graduated from Morgan State University in May 2015 with a passport full of stamps and not a dime of my own money spent on it performing around the world. In my time in college, I was heavily impacted by several teachers who sparked my interest in teaching. Seeing the passion they had when instructing their students made me want to impact others in the same way. I started doing some studying on vocal techniques, the anatomy of the head and throat, and the latest in vocal pedagogy research. I started teaching my own private voice lessons two years ago using what I researched and my own personal experiences. The results from my students were AMAZING. I had a student who came to me and was suffering from a voice injury and through suggested voice therapy and my voice lessons, she was able to Sing to her full potential without harshness, rasp, or vocal discomfort at all. I am a member of Sigma Alpha Iota International Music Fraternity Inc. and our open motto is "Vita Brevis Ars Longa" The Latin to English translation is, "Life is short, Art is long." This is a motto for every musician to live by. Teaching, to me, is a continuance of a long lived art that will never die as long as it is taught. I wish to share my passion, so my students can share theirs.
I'm a Fort Worth native with many years of performing and teaching experience. Throughout my musical development, I received extensive training in voice, piano, trombone, guitar, electric bass and percussion. I graduated from Texas Wesleyan University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Vocal Performance and was recognized as the Most Outstanding Music Major of the Year for performance as a vocalist and jazz bassist, an honor usually awarded separately to a vocal student and an instrumental student. I spent a few years in graduate school studying Vocal Jazz at the University of North Texas where I toured with the renowned UNT Jazz Singers in Atlanta and Los Angeles and performed with such acclaimed artists as Janis Siegel of the Manhattan Transfer and Peter Eldridge of the New York Voices. I was a featured soloist on many occasions including their 2015 album, "Can't Help It." I now perform widely throughout Texas and beyond as a jazz singer and bandleader at live music venues and private events and am frequently contracted as a commercial studio vocalist at the Axcess Group Studios in Dallas.

A healthy body makes a healthy voice. Achieve both when you eat right, exercise, and rest. Your diet is one of the best things you can do for your voice. Try to eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains, and limit sweets. Then drink plenty of water rather than sugary or caffeinated drinks. For exercise, perform aerobic activity every day. It builds your body's core and strengthens you for singing. Rest your body by sleeping enough at night. You'll also want to rest your voice so it remains strong. When your body is healthy, your voice is healthy too.
Starting vocal lessons is a great way to realize your singing dreams. Many people aspire to be a performing artist or professional singer, so learning the vocal techniques necessary to reach such standards will require expert tutoring from an experienced teacher. While lessons can be customized to meet the goals of those who want to prepare for auditions, learn specific techniques such as vibrato, extend the vocal range, or improve pitch and develop performance skills, some students may wish to simply learn to sing for fun. Whatever the goal, learning to sing is fun, creative, and rewarding.
When you want to learn how to become a better singer, you need voice lessons. The instructors in Musika's network are trained in every genre and style, including Classical, Country, and R&B. We can help you prepare for national auditions or local competitions. You will receive customized lesson plans based on your musical goals and previous experience. As part of your lessons, you will learn how to protect and project your voice. You'll learn how to interpret songs, add emotion, and read music. Before you audition or perform, we'll teach you how to manage stage fright. In addition to these topics, learn: how to enjoy and express yourself with singing, breath control techniques, vocal cord protection, voice projection techniques, vocal volume improvement, how to read music, genre and style interpretation, and how to add emotion to songs, lyrics, and phrases.
Children's voice lessons prepare your kids for a career as a theater performer, professional vocalist, or recreational singer. Before enrolling your kids in voice lessons, wait until they are physically and emotionally prepared. Typically, that happens between 11 and 12 years old. Your children's vocal cords are then ready to practice daily as they stretch. If you start lessons before your child is mature enough, vocal cord damage and strain are possible. By waiting until your kids are mature, you protect their voice for whatever musical ventures the future holds.
Voice lessons in your home offer a convenient and practical way to master the art of singing. Voice lessons in your home require a piano or keyboard so that the teacher can use that to conduct your lessons. Whether you want to learn classical voice, jazz, pop, or musical theatre styles, the instructors in our network can provide you instruction on what songs would suit your voice best.

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.

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.

I would like to thank Polina for the series of classical piano lessons I've taken recently. Polina is a fantastic teacher and a high class performer, and I'm really happy I had a chance to meet her! I believe anyone can benefit from the teaching method Polina is practicing regardless of the student proficiency - from beginners to advanced performers. It was a pleasure for me to study classical piano courses under the guidance of such an intelligent & professional teacher! Without doubt, my playing technique has improved a lot and I have signed up for the new classes online already.
Review by Emily
Steve gets you started right away with songs but also goes into music theory and reading music which adds to understanding and appreciation of the music. He is very approachable and you can tell that he absolutely loves music and teaching. It is hard not to be excited about the process of learning with Steve. If you are considering lessons I highly recommend Steve for any level of student.

Kevin is very friendly and professional trombone teacher. During the first session he assessed my 12 year old son's strengths and identified areas for development. He has helped him refine his technique which helps our son in band class but also has him working on duets that help him grow in new ways. He comes to our home and is always very punctual. I would highly recommend Kevin!

Bill has been great with my 2 young children (age 3 & 6). He has integrated games into the lessons - they have enjoyed showing us how to play the games when it is time to practice piano. Bill has been easy to contact and rescheduling has not been a problem if we have a conflict at our regular lesson time.
Review by Ruslan
She is the most amazing teacher ever. She is not only w great teacher but she's so fun to work with. She has taught me so many things in such little amount of time things I didn't even know I could do. I recommend Andrea to everyone. She is an amazing singer and cares a lot about her students. She's the best!!

“Lynn is my music hero! She can listen to any song and write down the chords. She will adjust to make it easier or harder whatever your abilities. I have a busy schedule and often don't have time to practice between lessons and she is cool with that. She also will adjust lesson times when she is able which fits my hectic schedule. I'm glad my first guitar teacher "fired" me ....that allowed me to meet Lynn.” - Carol A., M.D., Aug 2015

Travis rocks. My 7-year-old son and I both take lessons with him. Travis has moved me off the plateau I was on with lessons that focus on theory and technique. And for my son, he's been able to instill a desire and interest that were missing when he previously took piano lessons. With Travis teaching us, the limits are the ones we impose on ourselves. Needless to say, Travis himself plays a mean guitar to boot!
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.
