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 start off by addressing breath and phonation, even with the mostadvanced singers, because singing, like anything in life, is alwaysabout the fundamental basics. I give students exercises that will helpthe student find their true and most efficient voice. I help buildmuscles that will aid in this as well. It is all about whatever worksfor the student too, because if one thing works for one student, itmay not work for another. It is my job to find what is working bestfor the student so we can together find their most efficient andbeautiful voice.
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.
There is nothing more rewarding than the moment where something "clicks" for a student! I believe in individually tailored lessons, exercersises and experiences. Every student is different and every student deserves a teacher that can adapt from one lesson with a 45 year old beginner to a lesson with a precocious youngster singing Disney tunes. The process of learning never ends for a singer (that is especially true for the voice teacher as well!). To reiterate, setting attainable, clear goals is of the most importance, as it gives us an idea of a route to follow! I believe in tough love when it is needed (don't skimp on your practice time!) but I believe positive reinforcement is the best tool a teacher has in his arsenal. I have studied and coached with some pretty tough cookies, and am a better musician for it, but that is not the case for all students and I understand that.
I began teaching private voice students while I was still working on my Masters degree. I was the Concert Choir section leader in College and found leadership and spreading my love for music to be exhilarating! I encourage all of my students to set a reasonable practice schedule to get themselves into the habit of practicing and really reaching their full potential as a student. I accept recreational students as well as students who are looking towards a career in music in the future. I have had two students audition and be accepted for the South Carolina Governors School for the Arts as well as one student audition and be accepted into an Arts Magnet program in Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools.

Your health is crucial factor in keeping your voice feeling and sounding great! Suggestions offered by professionals include eating a healthy diet, getting enough sleep, practicing stress reduction techniques and getting regular exercise. It is important to drink enough water and to also avoid excessive amounts alcohol, taking antihistamines, and screaming or singing for an extended duration without rest, because this can damage your voice.
First time and veteran adult voice students benefit from Musika lessons. The experienced instructors in our network train adult singers to breathe properly, project their voice, and protect their vocal cords. With regular lessons, you can improve your vocal range and tone. We also specialize in any genre. Learn classical vocal techniques or master all the modern pop styles. Use lessons to prepare for a competition or to sing better at home. You'll find exactly what you need when you take adult voice lessons in your home or in a teacher's studio. Then achieve your musical goals whether you've taken voice lessons for years or are a beginning student.
Convenient and comfortable, in-home voice lessons prepare you to master the only instrument you carry with you everywhere you go. Professional instructors in Musika's network employ time-tested methods to teach you how to operate your voice to maximum capacity. With the piano you have in your home and music you can purchase from almost any musical store, learn to sing Opera, R&B, Country music, or anything else. Simply schedule lessons and avoid the hassle of traveling to a studio across town. With professional voice lessons, learn how to care for your voice as you use it to make beautiful music.
Students can have fun learning how to sing from as young as 11 or 12 years old. As students of this age are approaching puberty, their voices are not fully matured, so care must be taken not to place too much pressure or strain on the voice for fear of risking injury. That said, 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. Students can also improve their concentration levels, confidence, and self-esteem.
Voice lessons focus on development of vocal skills and breathing techniques to help increase projection of the voice and improve the range of the voice. Students will learn how to read music and also learn to emotionally interpret lyrics and melodies during their performance. Vocal method books and lesson materials can be purchased from a local music store. You can study a variety of vocal styles in your lessons ranging from classical and opera to jazz and pop.

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 Mythili Lahiri
My son is truly enjoying his lessons with Chris. He looks forward to them and is motivated to practice. Chris is conscientious and shows up on time and whenever he is supposed to. He communicates clearly if rescheduling is ever required and is accommodating when we need to change the day. I would recommend Chris to anyone.

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.

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+
Review by Maurice Romero
This is the 1st time I've ever taken lessons, and Robert has been a pleasure to work with. I've made quick progress and have enjoyed the process. I'm always listening for those tips that you can't find in a book. I can count on Robert to be strict on the fundamentals and am clear it will make a difference in the long run.
Review by Violetking
Bill has been a great teacher for both my 6 yr. old and my 8 yr. old. He is always on time, keeps them engaged, and gives them just enough of a challenge for the next week. They are both beginners, but I am surprised by how much they already know after just a month or so of lessons. Both kids are practicing willingly and look forward to lesson.
Review by James F.
After my first piano lesson, Polina is easily the best teacher I could have hoped for. Extremely charismatic and excited to help YOU learn the piano. She puts a lot of effort into evaluation your learning style and will no doubt help you make tremendous strides! I'm stoked to continue taking lessons!
Review by Gisellesoldati
Cory is simply the greatest instructor ever! His 30 year plus teaching experience along with his knowledge of ever longer in music composition and performance make a real difference if you're in for learning the right way. Thank you Cory for teaching me not only the chords but also the history behind it and awesome tricks on getting better faster ;)

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.
