My approach to students and lessons is very personal - not only do I want to understand each student's personality/temperament and life situation and use that to shape my approach, but I want to open their minds to the variety of ways that music overlaps so many other disciplines and life interactions. If I have an adult working in a highly analytical field, I want him to see the patterns and mathematical foundations within music, and yet use music as a launching pad to explore creativity and spontanaeity. If my hour is spent with a precocious child or an unmotivated teenager, I find both the fun and structured elements of music, and relate it back to things they know and love. I work to open their eyes not only to the present, but the future - teaching them how foundational concepts of music can be hugely influential in developing them into well-rounded, disciplined, yet creative teens and adults. I seek to know my students, and for them to know that I care about them, while still focusing on the study of music for our time together. My students will never say, "We just don't do anything!" in our lessons. But they will also never think I am cold or impersonal. Always, I am seeking to understand a student's present identity, diagnose weaknesses and strengths in knowlege and discipline, and then work to stimulate her mind and develop her into a well-rounded artist and citizen.
As being a student of some great singers, teachers and Maestros of Bel canto style of singing here and in Italy, I am a strong believer and practitioner of that school. Just like any other instrument, ours is one and the same, no matter what style we choose to perform. The only difference is- we, as singers, must build our instrument as well as learn how to use it at the same time. if built wrong, it wont work, or last. And just like Guarnieri or Stradivari violins are the best violins out there, the Bel canto school, in my ( and many others) opinion, is the best method for building true, strong, healthy, and lasting voice. Once you have a good, solid instrument, use it in any style or genre you want!
I am a caring and passionate voice teacher who loves teaching what I've learned, as well as the passion and love I have for music, to students. I graduated from Austin Peay State University in 2013 with a BS in Vocal Performance. I was in a world renowned children's choir back home in PR, called San Juan Children's Choir, for 10 years. With them I got to travel the world performing. That was one of the most enriching experiences ever. I have performed several operas with the Opera workshop at Austin Peay State University. I love to perform on stage.
I am a violin/viola and voice teacher in Carolina Beach. I also teach Introduction to Music classes for young children, designed to be taken with a Iparent. Your child will beer introduced to singing, piano, violin, and guitar as well as rhythm and reading music through games and activities. Voice lessons include basic piano/keyboard skills with music theory, and all of my lessons incorporate music history, sight-reading, and ear-training.
I began giving voice lessons during my graduate studies to both young singers and older beginners who wished to sing for reasons of self-fulfillment. This is clearly a large gap in spectrum here and I had to learn quickly how to adapt from lesson to lesson, as you can imagine. No matter where you fit on the spectrum, I feel confident in my ability as a teacher to quickly and astutely assess where you are, what could use improvement and creating a plan together to achieve whatever your definition of success may be. One element that transverses across the aforementioned spectrum is the joy one should always keep close while singing. This joy for singing is precious and is an astounding indicator for how things are going. I believe the teacher-student relationship should be challenging and should stretch the boundaries of ones' comfort zone, but should never assault ones enjoyment of their art.

Keeping your voice healthy starts with keeping your entire body healthy. Eating a balanced diet, getting adequate sleep, and reducing stress are all keys to keeping your body, and voice, healthy. Singers should avoid excess caffeine, smoking, consumption of alcohol and drugs. Excessive screaming, speaking or singing for long periods of time, and performing in loud or crowded places without proper amplification should be avoided. Singers should always stay hydrated by drinking purified water, and try to stay away from sugary drinks and colas.
In home voice lessons are a convenient way to learn the art of singing! Our instructors are qualified to teach a variety of styles ranging from Opera to R&B. If you are interested in auditioning for local competitions or even reality tv shows like American Idol or The Voice, our network of instructors can definitely help you prepare. Most voice lesson music and materials can be purchased online or at a local music store.
Voice lessons focus on development of vocal skills and breathing techniques. They also help you increase you voice's projection and range. Vocal method books and lesson materials can be purchased from a local music store. You can study a variety of vocal styles ranging from classical and opera to jazz and pop. With help from the trained instructors in Musika's network, learn how to read music and how to interpret lyrics and melodies with emotion during your auditions and performances. Other topics generally included in lessons are how to enjoy music and express yourself with singing, proper breath control, vocal cord protection, vocal projection techniques, how to improve vocal volume, how to read musical notations, interpretation of various singing styles including classical, jazz, country, pop, and opera, how to interpret songs, lyrics, and phrases with the proper emotion, and performance techniques and tips, including how to manage stage fright.
Voice lessons for adults focus enhancing technical execution and developing a musical repertoire. Lessons can be taught in various styles, and are tailor made to suit your tastes and skill level. If you are singing for the first time in your life, taking lessons as an adult is a great way to improve your vocal talents.
Your child may beg for voice lessons so he or she can sing like a professional, but waiting is the best option for your child's future musical career. Before puberty, the voice is not physically prepared for extended vocal training or performance. It could suffer damage or strain if you pursue children's voice lessons before your child is ready. Protect your child's vocal cords by starting voice lessons after he or she is 11 or 12 years old. You both will be glad you waited to give your child voice lessons after he or she matures.

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.

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.

Ali was an amazing voice coach! She taught in a way that made sense to me, and helped me find the voice placements I needed. I didn't know I could sound like that! My development with her was leaps and bounds rather than tiny dreadful steps that happen when you don't know what's going on! Ali was dedicated to helping me work on an audition for a music scholarship and I nailed it all thanks to her, seriously. I can't thank her enough! She helped me with the tools and confidence I needed to sing in the real world alone rather than just back row in a large choir.

My son and I both take lessons with Micheal. My son started on the ukulele and recently started the guitar. He is excellent with children. Very patient and very intuitive to the child's ability. He is also an excellent teacher for adults. I had not touched my guitar in several years and in a couple months not only to I remember everything I forgot but I'm learning many new techniques and am a much better player than I've ever been.
Review by Olivia
Andrew is very encouraging and uplifting, but also isn't afraid to tell you your weaknesses. Andrew also is super awesome with scheduling. Fits around your schedule all the time. He really knows what he is doing and can help you reach your goal in the time you would like to. Couldn't have gotten a better teacher, who continually helps me grow and pushes me.

Rebecca has been super with my son! He is 8yrs old and has mild aspergers. He has never played an instrument before but after one lesson with his teacher he could keep a beat on his drums. She is able to keep his attention and really makes it fun! She is flexible and easy going. I highly recommend her for any lessons. Very nice teacher! Thank you Rebecca for your outstanding service!!

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.
Review by John
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 Natalie Kretcher
I really like her. And as an adult student, a good teacher who keeps the pace up but still keeps it reasonable in terms of difficulty is really hard to find. She does a great job of explaining little detail things in terms I (as a musically challenged human) can understand. I'm having a blast! 10/10 would recommend!
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.
