I am a full time professional musician who is passionate about providing for my students the very best in music instruction for piano, organ, or voice. I started teaching while in high school and have maintained music studios throughout the southeast for over 35 years. I am dedicated to continually improving my teaching skills and feel one of the greatest skills I can provide my students is teaching them how to perfect their practice skills, thus enabling them to become musicians who can function independently of studio instruction.Musically, technique, and creativity are hallmarks of my teaching style.

I am a passionate musician. In fact, I come from a family full of talented musicians and educators. The most influential on me is my father. He is the head of the Instrumental department at Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington DC. He pretty much sparked the idea of education in music for me. I have a degree in Jazz Studies from Howard University. Howard created the same vocal jazz program that was highlighted on NBC's competition the Sing-off. During my undergraduate time I was apart of those vocal ensembles and worked closely with professors and students to write, arrange and perform full length vocal compositions. Soon after graduation, I was a full-time musician giving freelance voice lessons, and also teaching jazz voice while an artist in residency at Duke Ellington. During my time at Duke, I continued to perform and record around Washington, DC. This is where I began to be recognized for my talent, and was approached by an independent label who would soon thereafter move me to Atlanta, Ga to pursue my goal of being a full-time artist. It was this time that I really learned what it takes to be apart of the music industry truly as talent. I relearned my vocal technique through Jan Smith studios. They taught what singers are really trying to learn. How to sing current music in a healthy, but stylistic way. Often times in collegiate environments the future is overlooked because the curriculum is still in the past.

One-on-one vocal lessons straight from the comfort of your own home are a great way to learn to how to sing. Most of our students choose to take lessons from home, mostly due to the convenience of not having to make travel arrangements both to and from their lessons. This is great for parents and students with busy schedules. The content of home lessons is exactly the same as studio lessons, where students will work on technique and exercises. Home lessons provide the best learning environment, as it is a comfortable, familiar surrounding for students to learn in.
For a healthy voice, take care of your body. When it's healthy, your vocal cords and singing voice are healthy. A balanced diet is the first step to achieving maximum health. Limit sweets, and eat plenty of fresh vegetables, fruit, whole grains, and lean protein. You'll also want to drink plenty of water instead of other beverages. Regular exercise is the next step toward a healthy voice. Aerobics and other activities strengthen your body and increase your fitness level. Proper rest includes getting enough sleep at night and protecting your voice from overuse. With these tips, you'll live a healthy lifestyle and keep your voice healthy too.
During voice lessons you will learn how to use your voice as an instrument, including proper technique for singing, breathing exercises, technical passages to improve your range and tone, and learning to sing specific songs! During your lessons you can learn various styles from classical and opera to R&B. Many students choose to learn songs from artists that are on the radio, as that is the music they enjoy listening to. During lessons you will also learn how to enhance your performance and audition skills, so if you are interested in auditioning for school musicals, community theatre performances, or reality tv competitions, then our network of teachers can definitely help you!
Age 11 or 12 is the best time to begin voice lessons when they are emotionally and physically mature enough to begin to learn various vocal techniques. Starting voice lessons younger than age 12 can be very demanding on an untrained voice and can cause damage if the student is not vocally ready. Students that have studied another instrument prior to beginning voice lessons are at a distinct advantage, because they will know how to read music and will be able to apply their previous years of experience to their new instrument.
Voice lessons for adults focus enhancing technical execution and developing a musical repertoire. Lessons can be taught in various styles, and are tailor made to suit your tastes and skill level. If you are singing for the first time in your life, taking lessons as an adult is a great way to improve your vocal talents.

Steve gets you started right away with songs but also goes into music theory and reading music which adds to understanding and appreciation of the music. He is very approachable and you can tell that he absolutely loves music and teaching. It is hard not to be excited about the process of learning with Steve. If you are considering lessons I highly recommend Steve for any level of student.
Review by Tuvana
He is incredibly patient and really customizes his teaching style to the child. Both of my children are learning piano with him; they have learned so much and really enjoy the lessons. In fact, my daughter asked to learn another instrument (guitar) with him and is making great progress with that, too.

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.

Rahsaan is an extremely talented player who relates really well with my teenagers. He has them both interested in learning. Given Rahsaan's expertise, it's clear that even though they are beginners now, they can learn from him for a long time to come. He's a real nice laid-back guy and both the boys really enjoy their time with him. I've been very impressed and pleased with the experience.

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.

Mrs. Regnarene is an awesome teacher!!! She found musical aids that appealed to my 5 year old daughter and used them to help teach her piano. She has a lot of patience and I could tell she puts in the work before class to have a lesson ready for my daughter. She is always punctual, friendly and respectful. I would recommend her to any parents who want to start their kids off with a good foundation in piano. Jermain T. Riverview, FL

Travis rocks. My 7-year-old son and I both take lessons with him. Travis has moved me off the plateau I was on with lessons that focus on theory and technique. And for my son, he's been able to instill a desire and interest that were missing when he previously took piano lessons. With Travis teaching us, the limits are the ones we impose on ourselves. Needless to say, Travis himself plays a mean guitar to boot!
Review by Christopher Perrone
Mike has been working with my son Robert for over a year and has just started working with my daughter Kate. Mike is both a great musician and a good teacher. He connects with the kids and keeps them engaged. He is able to tailor the lesson to focus on music that is interesting to each child. He also encourages the students to participate in a public setting which is great. I would highly recommend Mike.

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!
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.
