I'm a motivated educator and music therapist who has an intense love for music. I want my students to experience the joy that making music can bring! I believe that an early love for music can help motivate students to learn and excel on their instruments. I love working with students of all ages.My primary instrument is voice and I also teach piano, guitar, and ukulele. I excel and enjoy working with students with special needs! Music can do wonders for them and I am uniquely qualified to understand their challenges and needs while taking music lessons because of my work in music therapy.
I recently graduated with honors from Westminster Choir College where I completed degrees in both Music Education and Music Theory and Composition. I am currently working as a music teacher for the West Windsor Plainsboro Regional School District and building my career as a performer. So far I have sung multiple times at top performance venues like Carnegie Hall, the Kimmel Center, and Lincoln Center.
I grew up being forced into piano lessons at the ripe age of five. My mother insisted and I rejected it. However, I had no choice in the matter. She wanted me to play the piano. So I learned. Once I started middle school, I joined the choir because I noticed that they were going on a lot of field trips. Little did I know that I would actually fall in love with singing. I kept singing all the way up to my senior year and then decided that I wanted to pursue a degree in Music Education; however, after receiving weeks of private training, I found my true singing voice. My passion began to grow, and because of my constant dedication to this craft, I earned my masters degree and I am currently enjoying a pre-professional career as an opera singer.
For students of voice, my curriculum will adjust depending on the needs of the student, be it pitch, rhythm, breath, etc. I use many different vocal exercises and songs to help with whatever the student needs to work on. For piano, I like to use the Faber books. I believe these have a good balance of technique and repertoire so the student does not get bored just playing scales, and hopefully maintains or strenghtens their interest in the instrument.
I am teaching by the method I was taught by my teachers in Kiev's Conservatory, combined with teaching method I took in American school, such as Temple University and always trying to find an Individual approach to a student depending on the age, personal goals and . My goal is to teach a student right breathing, clear intonation, clear diction and find the natural voice timbre as well as beeng a great performer on the stage.

Adult voice students want to learn how to sing better. If that describes you, achieve your goal with instruction from experienced instructors from Musika's network. These instructors can teach proper breathing techniques, voice control, and vocal exercises. Additionally, the professional teachers in our network have experience in every musical genre. As an adult student, learn to sing Jazz, Pop, Country, Classical, and a variety of specific styles within each genre. Musical instructors help you choose songs that fit your voice and prepare for national competitions, regional auditions, or personal enjoyment. If learning how to sing better is one skill you want, adult voice lessons will help you reach that goal.
A healthy body makes a healthy voice. In fact, your voice is the only instrument that uses your entire body to function. Take care of your body and your voice when you watch what you eat and drink. Limit sugar and processed foods. Instead, eat a nutritious diet that's loaded with vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Drink plenty of water instead of beverages with caffeine or sugar. You should also stop smoking and limit alcoholic beverages. Daily, try to exercise. It strengthens your lungs and your vocal ability. Then rest. Your body and your voice need time to recuperate quietly as you seek to keep your voice healthy.
Voice lessons will focus on developing proper breathing technique and vocal technique and ways to improve your singing. You will learn how to support and project your voice, and how to read music so that you can read the melody of the singing line. You will also learn how to interpret different styles of music, performance techniques, and how to emotionally interpret song lyrics and phrases. The most important thing you will learn in voice lessons is how to express yourself through singing!
Children who want to take voice lessons should wait until they start puberty. Before age 11 or 12, the voice is not mature enough to handle singing lessons. Kids could suffer vocal damage or strain if they start formal training too early. Alternatively, waiting until kids mature reduces the risk of permanent damage. Kids stand a better chance of singing well into adulthood if they wait until their voice is mature enough for voice lessons. By waiting, they protect their vocal cords and are physically ready for regular voice lessons and daily exercises vocal training requires.
Taking voice lessons in your home is a great way to enhance your musical skills without ever leaving your living room! As long as you have a piano or keyboard available, we can arrange for a teacher to come directly to you. Our professional network of teachers will help you learn the songs you want while you enhance your range and tone of voice.

I honestly cannot say enough positive things about Rachel. We met her through CYT where my daughter took theater classes from Rachel and was directed by Rachel in several musicals. Because Rachel was so wonderful to work with and so clearly talented at teaching and directing, several years ago, my daughter started private vocal lesson with her and I have seen my daughter's vocal abilities grow in leaps and bounds. Rachel is an ace at picking music to work on that stretches abilities while at the same time, keeps vocal lessons fun. I highly recommend her as a voice and theater coach.

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.

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.

I had always wanted to take vocal lessons, but was very nervous about it until I had the opportunity to have Ali as my instructor. She made me feel very comfortable and helped me realize my strengths while giving me other areas to work on and strengthen. I liked how Ali had me sing out of my "comfort" zone to realize my vocal range. It is obvious that Ali loves music and sharing that love with her students. She is very good at what she does and works well with both male and female voices. I highly recommend Ali and give her solid 5 stars
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.

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.

Our kids love Mr. Lynwood. Mr. Lynwood is very patient and skillful teaching our kids both music theory and guitar/piano. He keeps them engaged and motivated during their lessons and we are seeing -or rather hearing- fast improvement in the kids' dexterity playing their respective instruments. We would recommend this good natured instructor to anybody.

Gina is very supportive and encouraging. Even though I get frustrated with my progress, she can tell that I've been practicing and reminds me of how far I've come. She challenges me to learn new skills without giving me a piece that I cannot master (with practice). I'm happy that she is my music teacher and look forward to many more lessons in the future.
Review by Brad Schimmer
I have been playing the drums for about 5 years and I have to say that Alvaro is very patient. He has opened me up to new styles of music and I can now play a Songo groove! What I liked most was that he was flexible in what I wanted him to teach me and would also bring in new material specifically to what I wanted him to show me. Overall, great patient teacher and would highly recommend! Thanks Alvaro!
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.
