As a professional vocalist, Raissa has enjoyed performing in a variety of operas, musicals and recitals here and abroad. Some of her favorites include Rosalinda in "Die Fledermaus", Sandrina in "La Finta Giardiniera", Marenka in "The Bartered Bride", Cio-cio-san in "Butterfly" and others.
I began teaching my first piano student when I was 14 years old. I have since enjoyed teaching in many different ways. I've taught private students, homeschool choruses, pre-K-8th grade (using music curriculum that I created), 8th grade science students, large choirs of beautiful angelic children's voices, adult church choirs, youth and adult bands, gospel choirs, reading literacy students, and soldier medics how to prepare for their responsibilities. I also homeschooled my own children. I am a teacher. It is how I think and behave. I love to learn, and I also love helping others love learning.
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 passionate, out going, realistic and motivational instructor. I adore working with children and sharing my love for music and music history. I graduated from RI College in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Arts and Sciences with a focus on Voice Performance. I have had opportunities to perform with the Opera Workshop of RI College, and some small opera groups and organizations in Massachusets, New York, Connecticut and Texas. I had the honor of performing for the Chaminade Club in Providence RI, as well as the opportunity to perform at the Annual "Bach Fest" in Poughkeepsie NY. I have also had the pleasure of taking part in a tour with the RI College Chorus to Austria, Slovakia and Czech Republic.
I love to sing and a passion for music. I have been performing since I could walk. In the fall of 2013 I receive my degree from you in UNCG in music education. There I studied private voice for 3 years with Dr. Nancy Walker, former vice president of National Association of Teachers of singing.I also had the opportunity to seeing with the University choirs, and also UNCG's all-male a capella group, Spartones. My secondary instrument is piano, of which I have studied 14 years. I also have been apart of musical theater productions, my most recent was the role of Peter in Jesus Christ Superstar. I am currently a part of the Gaston Choral Society, as well I do vocals for an up-and-coming Jam Band.

Regardless of whether you want to sing Rock, Pop, Folk, or Musical Theatre, our vocal lessons can develop your singing technique in a safe, effective way that can be applied to all of the above genres and many more. Students will learn a whole host of fun exercises that are designed to develop your vocal technique and build strength, endurance, and vocal power. Through a good understanding of how the voice works and by practicing the exercises taught during lessons, you can improve your vocal tonality, develop skills such as vibrato, pitch, and harmony, and increase your vocal range; usually by at least one full octave. You will learn how to connect the chest and head registers, maintain steady air pressure and vocal fold closure, tilting of the thyroid cartilage (to switch registers) and how to build these techniques until you can apply them to your favorite songs.
We offer one-on-one vocal lessons in-home for students. This offers a practical way to learn the art of singing. Teaches in our network customize their lesson plan to work with your needs and goals. Lessons are generally once a week and are fit into your schedule at your convenience.
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.
Adult voice lessons do more than teach you how to sing better. They also prepare you for performances, auditions, and competitions. Voice instructors in Musika's network have successfully taught and prepared students to audition for The Voice, American Idol, X-Factor, and other reality singing shows. Add your name to the list of success stories when you take voice lessons. Choose whichever genre you want, then allow instructors to help you choose the songs that are best for your voice. Voice lessons also teach you how to control your voice, perfect your breathing, and care for your vocal cords. Expand your singing ability and prepare for events when you take adult voice lessons.
Singing is a physical endeavor that requires effort, strength, and coordination. The musculature of the voice is very delicate so it is important to sing using safe techniques. Forcing or pushing the voice is a common cause of vocal fatigue and should be avoided. Check for tension or constriction in the throat, as this is sign of bad technique. The extrinsic muscles of the voice (neck, jaw, and cheeks) should be relaxed and there should be no discomfort of pain when singing. The best way to avoid vocal fatigue or injury is through warm ups, sleep, and hydration

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 Stevengournay
There are only a handful of people I count in my life who were great teachers, and Laura is one of them. Her musicianship is so secure as are her technique and personality that she zeros in on my weaknesses and devises exercises to strengthen them, and during the lesson it is not "Do this, no, do that" which is unnerving to a novice. She understands the most important part of study is relaxation, so that is easy to achieve with such a confident and compassionate human. Music is her life and she is eager to share her talent with everyone. A rare find, indeed!
Review by Kate Thomas
My son enjoys his viola lesson each week with Martina. She is disciplined in her approach to teaching but always makes my son's learning experience enjoyable. She knows how to challenge him and develop excellent form. Martina is always punctual and professional. We both highly recommend her as an instructor.
Review by Lucinda
Melissa is very encouraging, positive, supportive and patient. She knows how to explain the technical details of flute and music notation to kids in a way that makes sense to them. She has been reliable so far turning up on time and calling if there is a need to reschedule. I would definitely recommend her to others.
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!
Review by Thomas Pickens
"I've been taking lessons with Richard for just a little over six months now and all I can say is that he is an amazing instructor. He hasn't followed a set one size fits all script in his lessons but has instead worked with my musical interests and at my pace in a way that is truly valuable. He has also kept things fun, interesting, and engaging even at times when I've felt overwhelmed and discouraged. This is an instructor that is truly adaptable to his students and will make sure that they get the most out of their lessons. I would definitely recommend him to anybody that truly wants to unlock their musical potential."
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.

We've only had a few lessons with Elisa, but so far we really like her. She has a lot of great suggestions for solo pieces as well as orchestral music that involves all 3 of my boys, while also including some Christian music that we can play at church. She is very patient in explaining the lessons and encouraging!

Michael is exactly what I was looking for in a teacher. The first thing he did was to determine what I wanted to get out of lessons, and what my existing skill level is. He is now aiming me in the right direction - and he is clearly skilled, experienced and knowledgeable, in addition to being very easy to get along with. I'm very happy.
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.
