I'm a passionate and motivated instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of music. In 2011, I graduated from Southern University and A&M College with a Bachelor of Music degree in Trumpet Performance/Music Education. Having both degrees has enhanced my teaching studio for I can give the best of both cases to my students either going for education or performance. I have a studio where I students can be recorded during lessons to enhance their own learning abilities.

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.
Musika offers one-on-one, in-home singing lessons that are designed specifically for each individual student. Whether your lesson takes place in the studio or at home, students will get the exact same lesson content, with the only difference being the location. Parents will find home singing lessons a much more convenient option for their child, as it saves the time and costs of transporting their children to and from the studio. Younger students will find that learning to sing in the comfort of their own homes greatly benefits their development as they are learning in a supportive, secure, and familiar environment.
During their lessons, students will learn how to sing with good, safe, and effective vocal technique. Learning to sing with good technique is the cornerstone to improving the tone, range, and health of the voice during singing. Students will learn how to warm up properly, how to increase their vocal range, how to improve and strengthen their tone, performance techniques, how to accurately replicate pitch, how to support their singing with good breathing techniques, song interpretation and how to apply these techniques to singing their favorite songs. Vocal technique is not genre specific and the techniques taught can be applied to almost any genre of music. Students will develop these skills by vocalizing to piano scales. These vocal exercises are things such as singing different vowel sounds on different scales, sirens, lip rolls and trills, articulation exercises, and respiratory exercises. The exercises are tailored to the specific needs and ability levels of each individual student.
Singing is a physical endeavor that requires effort, strength, and coordination. The best way to ensure good vocal health is to sing and train using safe techniques. Bad technique or abusing the voice can cause vocal fatigue or even damage, such as nodules.The quickest and easiest way to wear out the voice is through shouting, screaming, or forcing the voice - often in order to sing higher notes. By avoiding such bad habits, as well as by limiting the consumption of vocal irritants such as alcohol, tobacco, and food with a high sugar content, singer can reduce the risk of injury or vocal fatigue.

Erin has been a wonderful voice/piano teacher for our 7 year old daughter. She is talented, patient, and has a wonderful demeanor. She has been consistent with her teaching in piano and voice. She keeps record of where the students leave off so that they know what to expect the following week. I would definitely recommend Erin to anyone looking for a skilled piano/voice teacher.

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.

We value Chelsea for the quality of her lessons, but also for the flexibility of her schedule. She has worked around family vacations, impromptu summer camps and the upcoming school year. Emily is better prepared to start middle school band this year due to flute lessons from Chelsea and we plan to continue the lessons for the foreseeable future.

Eduard is an amazing teacher. (Coming from someone who previously knew the basics of playing and music.) He is not to harsh with his words and is extremely nice. Eduard has a great amout of experience and displays it through his teachings. Specifically by making it easy to follow along with his words to actions. As a person with a wondering mind whom is distracted easily, it is easy to pay attention.

I have been playing the drums for about 5 years and I have to say that Alvaro is very patient. He has opened me up to new styles of music and I can now play a Songo groove! What I liked most was that he was flexible in what I wanted him to teach me and would also bring in new material specifically to what I wanted him to show me. Overall, great patient teacher and would highly recommend! Thanks Alvaro!

Gina is very supportive and encouraging. Even though I get frustrated with my progress, she can tell that I've been practicing and reminds me of how far I've come. She challenges me to learn new skills without giving me a piece that I cannot master (with practice). I'm happy that she is my music teacher and look forward to many more lessons in the future.

I was skeptical at first not knowing what I was getting my self into.. I am very happy that I forced myself to get into voice lessons because Eli is an awsome voice coach.. Very skillful and he helps you reach the goal you are trying to reach.. He is also very helpful with getting you to open up and come out of your shell and being heard.. I would and I already have recommended friends and family to sign up with Eli if they're serious about singing..

Noel is amazing. She is helping me to work toward my vocal goals for auditions to several musical theaters. She has helped me choose strong audition pieces and is teaching excellent ways to get the sound I need in a safe and healthy way. She works outside our lessons on new warm ups and new music pieces. She is the best.

Jessie is the finest musician I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I find her overall concept of approaching an instrument to be both comprehensive and effective. Each technique she has acquired has made it possible for her to tailor her method to a variety of ages and individuals. I cannot speak more highly of Miss Jessie's abilities. Her lengthy and impressive cradecials speak for themselves. I recommend no hesitation in seeking her services!
