I enjoy performing, teaching, and sharing my knowledge of music with others. In 2011, I graduated from Morehead State University with a Bachelors degree in Vocal Performance and in 2014, I graduated from the University of Louisville with a Masters degree in Vocal Performance. During my undergraduate and graduate careers, I was given the opportunity to travel and perform in Costa Rica, Austria, Hungary, and Poland.
With beginners (children and adults alike) I like to start with the Faber and Faber Piano Adventures method books. I tailor each student's learning experience, creating an individual path to success. I stress the fundamentals of music (learning to read music, proper physical technique, etc.) in an engaging and fun manner.
My teaching experience began right out of college, touring the pacific northwest for a year with The Missoula Children's Theatre. Partnered with another Tour Actor-Director, we would spend week long residencies in each community auditioning and casting over 55 local children in a full-scale, one hour musical production of Jack and The Beanstalk. At the end of each week we performed our show for the community! I also enjoyed teaching Theater Workshops in classrooms and assembly settings during these week long residencies. Being on the road teaching so many different ages and abilities in music and theater was an experience of a lifetime! This experience helped me hone my skills to bring out the unique individual best of each of my vocal students! Another wonderful experience I had teaching was following The Kindermusik International's curricula. This included the development of musical concepts such as pitch, rhythm and listening skills to classes of 5 -15 children (and their parents) ages 18 months to 4 years.
My teaching began in the late 1990's as professional musician in the United States Marine Corps teaching new Marine Musicians how to double & triple tongue and play minor scales as well as Greek Modes.I enjoyed the challenge of teaching someone a skill or technique. My reward is watching the lightbulb come on and them master the new skill. I have played professionally for over 15 years and taught flautists during this time. I loe to have a un and laid back lesson that reinforces skill all while keeping the fun in the lesson.

Singing is a fun activity kids enjoy doing in front of their mirror as they dream of becoming the next great talent. Their voice must be protected, though, from damage and strain. That's why we recommend that kids wait until puberty to start formal voice lessons. Around the age of 11 or 12, a child's voice is mature enough to participate in regular vocal lessons. The instructors in our network teach students of all ages, but we recommend waiting until a child's voice has matured. By waiting, the risk of damage or strain is minimized so a child can successfully perform in front of the mirror or on a national stage.
Taking voice lessons in your home is a great way to enhance your musical skills without ever leaving your living room! As long as you have a piano or keyboard available, we can arrange for a teacher to come directly to you. Our professional network of teachers will help you learn the songs you want while you enhance your range and tone of voice.
As an adult voice student, you'll learn more than proper breathing techniques. You can also improve your vocal range, prepare for reality singing competitions, and improve your vocal stage performance. Start with your favorite genre. After choosing Opera, Country, R&B, or any other genre, decide along with your instructor which style and songs fit your voice the best. Then practice the exercises your trained instructor from Musika's network assigns you each week. Whether you choose in-home or in-studio lessons, adult voice lessons teach you a variety of skills that help you succeed as a vocal musician on and off the stage.
Students will learn and develop good, safe, and modern vocal technique during their vocal lessons. The aim is to get students to be able to sing without strain, discomfort, or constriction throughout the whole of their range, in key, and in a clean, full sounding tone, and then apply these techniques to singing songs in various genres. Students will learn how to bridge and connect their vocal registers in order to expand their vocal range, add vibrato to their singing, and learn how to properly support the voice in order to sing long passages and create a strong, full sounding vocal tone. The teachers in our network can also help students who have tuning problems by conducting exercises that work on their pitch. Lessons can also cover musical theory, performance tips, and vocal effects such as safe vibrato and developing vocal agility through runs and fills. Students can also learn vocal physiology.
In order to maximize your ability to sing, it is important to be conscious of how the voice works and ways in which to keep it healthy. The best ways to help prevent any vocal problems are through warming up properly before singing and to keep the voice hydrated by drinking room temperature water. Vocal problems often arise through poor singing technique, such as shouting or straining to sing higher notes. This causes vocal fatigue as the vocal folds become overwhelmed due to excessive air pressure passing through them. Avoid shouting and stop singing if there is constriction or tension in the throat.

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.

Dave is a fantastic teacher. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to students that I think is invaluable. At the same time, this does not limit him from working with beginning students. He is very communicative with the parents as far as schedule changes. We are so grateful to have found him!!

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!

I started taking voice lessons from Ali when I was 19 and a sophomore in college. Though I was hesitant to be starting "late", I felt very comfortable with Ali and her teaching style. We identified several key issues that really made a difference and improved my voice technique. It was fun to sing popular, beautiful songs in our recital! If only I lived in Los Angeles, I would still be a student. Highly recommended!

Having taken 6 years of piano lessons myself when I was young, I am very happy with Osmond teaching my daughter. He is very personable and helping her to enjoy piano. My daughter loves the fun songs she gets to play and I really appreciate how he is integrating even in the first month fingering, chords, beats, and hearing the music. She's getting a very well rounded training and she's loving it!

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 ;)
Review by Susan
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.

Usually I don't write reviews. I am compelled to write for Feng. I've experience finding/working with many music teachers over the years for different instruments (piano, flute, sax) for kids. I think Feng is the best, he is so passionate about music, he encourages the kids. He teaches thoroughly - you can tell he knows lot about saxophone. I would definitely recommend Feng!!
Review by Chrystal
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..
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.
