I try to have as much fun as possible while still maintaining a high expectiation of performance. I am, by trade and training, a comedian, so jokes and laughter abound. Most of my students might say I'm not as funny as I think I am, but we still have fun! For certain students and parents who respond to it, I do offer incentives and rewards for practicing and lesson performance.
I began teaching voice in 2006 as a graduate student at San Diego State University. Throughout this time I have also been involved in directing various community and church choirs. As a professional singer I have extensive experience in vocal pedagogy, understanding how the human voice works, and helping others to use their own singing voice. I work well with both children and adults in sharing tools that promote excellent vocal technique, breath support, vocal range, and timbre. My passion is to support new and continuing students that they might benefit from my familiarity with music and vocal performance in general.
I am an experienced, enthusiastic music instructor, who received a Bachelor of Music Education from the University of Massachusetts in voice and piano. I have appeared around the world as a soloist singing jazz and pop, places including the Blue Note, NYC, Maui, Key West, Paris, Rome, Rio de Janeiro, Budapest, Phuket, Sydney, Australia. I have also sung in ensemble groups including the Masterworks Chorale, NYC, the Verdi Opera Chorus of Southern California. I have sung in Mandarin Chinese, Brazillian Portuguese, French, Italian and Spanish. Currently, I volunteer at the Senior Center leading/accompanying the Sing-Alongs doing songs from the early 1900's up to the present.
Grammy associated vocalist, singer, songwriter and producer, female, with successful studies in Europe and the US, worked with many famous studios, producers and artists. I am a Grammy member, and also work in the industry, helping step by step to shape music, and am as well a member of the Producers & Engineers Wing at the Grammys!
I have been working professionally in the industry for ten years. I have spent years perfecting my craft and would love to share my knowledge with others. Having an undergraduate degree in Commercial Voice has afforded me the opportunity to learn various styles of singing, This offers my students a unique chance to learn how to emulate their favorite commercial artists and create their own style within various genres. I have a strong classical foundation as well and would be happy to share my expertise in classical and operatic styles. Musical theatre is where I excel and I would love the opportunity to help students grow in their theatrical technique and learn to act through song.

Your voice is the one instrument that accompanies you wherever you go. Polish it with in-home voice lessons. Professional instructors in Musika's network arrive at your home ready to teach you how to choose songs that fit your voice, maximize your singing performance, and care for your instrument. All you need is a piano or keyboard, music, and your willingness to work. Whether you sing classical, country, or R&B, we can help you polish your voice. Prepare for a professional performance, an appearance on a reality singing competition, or a solo at a local event when you take in-home voice lessons.
It requires strength and coordination to sing with good, safe technique. For the voice to function at optimum levels, there needs to be good vocal fold closure throughout the vocal range, with steady, consistent airflow passing through the folds. Vocal fatigue or irritants such as mucus can make vocal fold closure difficult, and shouting or poor aerobic capacity can make airflow inconsistent. It is therefore important to be mindful of physical fitness, diet, general health, and technique with regards to the voice. The voice needs plenty of rest, regular practice and warmups, and water to perform in a safe, healthy manner.
During singing lessons, students of all abilities will learn and develop safe, effective vocal techniques that can be applied to a multitude of musical genres and styles. Students will learn how to properly warm their voices up by working through various exercises such as sirens, lip rolls and trills, and vocalizing various vowel sounds along to different scales. Lessons will cover topics such as vocal physiology and how the voice works so that students understand what a particular exercise achieves. Students will learn how to increase and strengthen their vocal range by learning how to bridge and connect their voices through the vocal break or passagio and into the head voice. Students can also work on their tone and breath support, and start applying these various techniques to singing actual songs. Students will also learn things such as music theory, song interpretation and style development, and can prepare for gigs and auditions.
When your child wants to learn how to sing, wait to begin voice lessons. The voice can be damaged or strained if you start lessons too soon because it is not physically ready to sing every day and undergo the rigorous training required during children's voice lessons. After puberty, or around age 11 or 12, most children are physically and emotionally ready for voice lessons. By following our recommendation and waiting, you protect your child's voice. He or she is then able to learn how to sing successfully for years to come.
Our adult voice lessons are taught by qualified teachers who will come up with an individual lesson plan suited to your goals and needs. Teachers in our network specialize in many genres of music, from classical to contemporary, and can offer you practical techniques and guidance. Voice lessons are structured to include time for warm ups, technique exercises, and repertoire study. Adults take a 45 minute or 1 hour lesson once a week.

My daughter is extremely happy and comfortable with Rachel, and looks forward to her piano lessons every week. She is a very kind and patient teacher, always using positive reenforcement with my daughter, which makes all the difference in the world to children. We definitely are looking forward to continued piano lessons with her. So glad we found her.

Jessie is the finest musician I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I find her overall concept of approaching an instrument to be both comprehensive and effective. Each technique she has acquired has made it possible for her to tailor her method to a variety of ages and individuals. I cannot speak more highly of Miss Jessie's abilities. Her lengthy and impressive cradecials speak for themselves. I recommend no hesitation in seeking her services!

I was skeptical at first not knowing what I was getting my self into.. I am very happy that I forced myself to get into voice lessons because Eli is an awsome voice coach.. Very skillful and he helps you reach the goal you are trying to reach.. He is also very helpful with getting you to open up and come out of your shell and being heard.. I would and I already have recommended friends and family to sign up with Eli if they're serious about singing..

Martina has been teaching our daughter violin since early 2015. Every time our daughter has a lesson she comes away in such a great mood - she really enjoys her lessons! Martina is positive and encouraging and adjusts her teaching to help our daughter learn the best way for her learning needs. We were curious about how online lessons would work, and it turns out that they work really well. The 1:1 time and ability to teach from a distance make it work just as well as in person. We've had moves and schedule changes and Martina has been very flexible for us - which made such a big difference in making violin lessons accessible. Absolutely recommend her!

Dan gave private clarinet lessons to my daughter, Annie, for two years. During that time, she excelled as a member of the middle school band, and maintained first-chair. Dan is an excellent teacher, and Annie looked forward to having one-on-one time with him. In addition to practicing pieces with her, he helped her with scales and greatly improved her tone quality.

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.

I've been taking lessons from Michael once a week for eight weeks now, and with his help I have made dramatic improvements with my sax. Michael is a funny, nice, patient and all around great instructor. I'd recommend Michael, as an instructor, to anyone who wants to improve their skills and have fun while doing it.
Review by Leslyn
Steve is an excellent instructor. My son has really connected with him and he is learning the guitar quickly. Steve is patient and never rushes through a lesson in order to make it fit within the session time limit. In addition, before he leaves, he writes notes and instructions for my son to follow. By the next lesson, my son is confident in what Steve has taught him. Most importantly, Steve builds my son's confidence in his own own ability and progress after each lesson.

After moving from NY and parting from our amazing piano instructor, we thought we couldn't find a piano teacher close to what we knew. We are happy to say Musika matched us up with someone professional and friendly who enjoys teaching younger students. Thank you! We definitely recommend Kuan as a piano instructor :)
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.
