I am a dedicated vocal coach, musician, singer, songwriter and founder of Vocals on Stage. At the age of 6 I started playing Cello and discovered my passion for music but my main focus quickly became the instrument voice. I studied for years at the Unique Voice Studios - a private school for contemporary singing in Vienna and have studied Jazz vocals at the Schubert Conservatory in Vienna as well as with private vocal coaches and have been touring all over Europe and the United States.
I want my students to have as much fun as I do at our lessons. I create a safe, comfortable environment for you to explore and nurture your ability and build your confidence. With your input, I will craft each lesson to suit your needs and goals.
I like to build a curriculum and set goals along side my students. As I said I want my students to be inspired, so it's important to me that they are singing the repertoire and learning the styles they are interested in, as well as throwing in various other style for a more broad musical understanding. I like lessons to be very interactive and comfortable, to creat a place where there is no fear. The moat important thing to me at the end of the day is building a relationship and enviroment in which to grown, experiement, learn, and finally take the stage!
I always like to get a feel for the students ability first and then choose the right level to begin with them. I always start with some exercise work to strengthen the basics and then include a lot of fun pieces to boost the fun and satisfaction with the improvement. I am very effective at improving a players ability and enjoyment of the instrument.
I am a recent graduate of Texas State University San Marcos this past May and just recently moved to Los Angeles to advance my music career as a Singer/Songwriter and performer. My degree is specifically in Music Education. One of the greatest joys I find in teaching is bringing students to their fullest potential and past what they may have thought they were capable of. My goal isn't to make you the next virtuoso (unless that's what you want we can make that happen!), but to make you a life long learner and lover of music. The habits of a musician are the habits of a successful person; never giving up, listening, trying your best, critical thinking, and so much more! The list is endless! The type of teacher I am described as is one who is full of energy, upbeat, positive, and someone who is able to get students to grasp and attempt concepts that may be considered too difficult for them by normal standards without students giving up or becoming discouraged. That is what I take pride in the most when it comes to me as a teacher.

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.
Students studying voice for the first time as an adult can look forward to working on vocal exercises and breathing techniques which can help improve their range and tone. Adult students may be interested in studying primarily classical vocal technique, or they may want to focus on different styles like pop or jazz. The instructors in our network can help you reach your musical and stylistic goals!
The teachers in our network create a customized lesson plan for every student, so no two students' lesson plans will be identical. Topics covered during Musika's voice lessons may include, but are not limited to: proper breath control technique, how to support your voice, how to read music, how to interpret various styles of singing (classical, jazz, pop, etc.), performance tips and techniques, how to overcome stage fright, and most importantly, learning to enjoy music and express yourself through singing!
Learning to sing is massively beneficial for students of a young age. Through lessons and practice, students can learn safe vocal techniques, how to look after their voices, develop their ability to hear and recreate pitch, and work on their musical theory. They can also prepare for exams, rehearsals, and competitions. Learning how to sing is also good for their overall development, as they will improve their concentration skills, raise their self-esteem and confidence, and develop a positive, hard-working attitude as well as a habit of self-discipline through regular practice and lessons.
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.

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.

My daughter really enjoys her lessons with Pavel. She is an absolute beginner and Pavel is right with her as she learns the basics. She is completely engaged and always looks forward to her lesson. He packs a lot of learning into their 30 minute time slot - he gets right to it as soon as he walks in the door! He is a great teacher - we highly recommend!

Brett is an accomplished musician, who shared his knowledge at a level that my five year old understands. He is polite and relaxed in his mannerisms but take a serious approach to focusing on the lesson. He is very patient and engaging with the attention span you'd expect from a kindergartener. His motto ever is "sometime you learn faster by going slow"
Review by Debbie E.
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

"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."

Henry has been a great piano teacher since I started lessons about a month ago, and he is helping me realize a lifelong dream. He is patient, plays beautifully, is easy to learn from and a very nice person. I took lessons as a child for a year or so, but never followed up over the years. I always said that I would once I retired and found the right instructor. That time is now. Thank you Henry and Musika!

“I took drum lessons from Mark for about 7 months. I have been playing for 38 years but always thrive to learn more. He was able to provide me alternative exercises and help me gain a better understanding of my opportunities. I have been able to take my playing to another level. His approach to teaching is perfect for any level of student, beginner or advanced. He is a true professional and an outstanding person. You won't go wrong with Mark!” Blaine Vaz
Review by Scott
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 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!
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.
