Robert is a classically trained singer and an actor. Growing up in North Carolina, he was active in a variety of musical styles since childhood. Robert studied theatre from a young age at Charlotte Children's Theatre and for a while at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, shortly after he received some vocal training at the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana. Robert was active as a professional singer, actor and vocal coach in the music community of ... Brazil from 2002-2008. Prior to Brazil, he spent several years in Germany singing opera in a Cabaret theatre, in Seattle singing, writing and recording a hybrid style of rock and country music, and in North Carolina directing young singers in a variety of opera performance pieces. He has sung and has appeared in concert as a soloist on several recordings with the Symphonic Orchestra of Minas Gerais. Robert lived and was a vocal coach in San Francisco from 2008 to 2012 at Blue Bear School of Music and was involved with several music projects in the Bay Area pursuing his passion for coaching, songwriting, singing, producing and recording. He recently moved back to Charlotte N.C. and is working as a soloist and singing instuctor. The core of his teaching deals with the singers process of presentings oneself wholly from a place of minimum effort. "Whatever you want to sing, posture, relaxation, diction and coordination are essential, and above all things a willingness to understand the language of music".
For beginner students who are children I would begin with Gregory Blankenbehler's Singing Lessons for Little Children so the child gets a grasp on fundamentals before continuing onto solo music. For adults, it would depend on their music level, their ability, and what they are passionate about.
I began teaching while in my undergrad in pedagogy classes that helpedus learn the art of teaching voice privately. I acquired severalstudents my last year of my undergrad and my studio grew in to myMaster's. As a part of my assistantship in my Master's, I taught VoiceClasses, which were classes of undergraduate music students whoseprimary instrument was not voice and who were required to take voiceinstruction for their majors, such as Music Education or MusicTherapy. I taught at the classroom level, classes ranged in sizeanywhere from six students to twenty-six students, as well as teachingthese students privately outside of class time. Since graduation, Ihave had students in my private studio with age and experience of vastlevels.
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.
I look at each student individually to assess their potential and goals before setting a book or particular study plan. Once the student has begun basic technique exercises, I assign book levels and vocal repertoire that fits their interests as well as matching what I feel the student needs to be working on. I approach children and adults with the same methods: 1)Find out what the student's goals are. 2)Assign repertoire/technique exercises. that will help them reach those goals while allowing me to teach them the skills they need to attain those goals

Taking voice lessons is one way your child can prepare for a reality singing show competition or a career as a vocal performer. Prematurely starting voice lesson could cause vocal damage or strain, though. We recommend children wait until they are 11 or 12 years old. At that time, a child is undergoing puberty, and his or her vocal cords are mature enough to handle the rigorous training involved in voice lessons. Waiting is difficult for kids, but the benefits include vocal protection. Your child is more likely to succeed at auditions and performances when he or she waits until puberty for formal vocal training.
With adult voice lessons, hone your musical talent, and reach for the stars. Voice instructors in Musika's network specialize in every genre. They can teach you how to sing Classical, Country, Pop, or any genre. They instructors even can prepare you for competitions like America's Got Talent or X-Factor.

Students will learn and develop good, safe and effective vocal technique during their vocal lessons. The best way to build a strong, powerful voice is to learn the techniques and practice the exercises covered in lessons. The essence of good vocal technique is centered around being able to successfully bridge from the chest voice to the head voice, with no vocal breaks or noticeable change in tonality. To do this successfully requires strength, timing, and coordination of the intrinsic muscles of the larynx, the ability to maintain good vocal fold closure, and to tilt the thyroid cartilage. To do these things successfully students will also learn how to support their singing with breath management, as it is important that the air pressure above and below the vocal folds is balanced. During lessons, students will be taught the exercises in order to successfully master these skills. They will also learn about performance, stylistic and interpretive techniques, and how to apply them to singing songs.
Whether you sing professionally or for fun, in-home voice lessons help you improve your craft. Choose any genre then allow experienced instructors from Musika's network to evaluate your voice and decide which songs are right for you. Accompanied by your piano and in the comfort of your home, warm up, practice, and cool down under the watchful eye of a professional voice instructor. Best of all, you don't have to worry about finding transportation to the studio or fitting lessons into your busy schedule. With in-home voice lessons, you maximize your natural talent and improve your singing ability whether you sing for fun or for a living.
Your voice is the only instrument that functions best when your entire body functions properly. Improve your voice health when you take care of your body's health. That includes eating a nutritious diet that's filled with vegetables, fruit, and protein. You'll also want to drink water instead of alcohol, sugary drinks, or caffeine. Exercise plays an important role in your overall health too. Spend time each day exercising and working out. Daily, rest your body. Sleep well at night and don't over use your voice. By taking steps to ensure your body functions properly, you also help your voice function at its best.

Lindsey has been coming to our house to give saxophone lessons to our 12 year old daughter for about a month. She is an absolute joy. She is extremely knowledgeable, flexible with her schedule, and my daughter thinks she is "fun" and "cool". We would highly recommend her to anyone wanting music lessons. A+

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"

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!

I started my 5 yr old daughter with Karleen this Fall. Karleen has a calm and honest disposition. My daughter adores her and cannot wait for her arrival. I was concerned because my daughter is not so willing to "practice" during the week. Karleen advised me to allow her habits of practicing to evolve naturally as her love and understanding of piano increases. She emphasized how nurturing my daughter's love of music is most important. This was music to my ears :)

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!

“Lynn has taught my daughter guitar for 9 years. She has always managed to keep her engaged and provide an exceptional learning experience. She tailors the lesson specifically to the student’s interests and abilities. She provides many opportunities for students to showcase their talents outside of lessons. We love working with Lynn.” Maureen Young, Dir. of Finance, Aug 2015

Angela is a phenomenal teacher. She is full of charisma and is a joy to work with. Most of my experience with her has been focused on working in the Alexander Technique and she seems very knowledgeable in this study. I would highly recommend her to any prospective student. I have seen myself improve dramatically in a few short weeks with her guidance (and much practice of course!)
Review by Terri
Caitlyn is friendly, helpful and still holds my high-school aged daughter accountable for practicing. She also makes sure the music technique is mastered correctly during the lessons - they work hard and still have a good time together. I can highly recommend her as a flute teacher. My daughter is very happy & grateful to have found Caitlyn as a teacher.

"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."
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.
