I have been teaching private voice since 1991. Along with teaching privately out of my home, over the years I have served on faculty as an adjunct voice professor at the college and university level, and have taught private voice in school districts for their junior high and high school choirs. My own children study with me and are performing regularly in musical theater productions and choirs. I love helping singers discover their beautiful, God-given singing voice and watching it blossom as they consistently practice and apply the techniques. I believe a classical foundation is key to singing with freedom and agility, but I will help a singer in any style or genre. Singing should be fun and viewed as a gift to ourselves and to others. I want every singer to enjoy singing with freedom and confidence!
Every person has different strengths, weaknesses, motivators, and goals. I like to keep all of these things in mind before I start designing a lesson plan for each person. I like to make sure that I am teaching both the ear to listen and the eye to read, so I make sure I can improve the development of both by providing effective sight=reading and aural exercises in every lesson.
I began teaching voice as an independent contractor in 2010 at Joshua High School and Middle School. In 2012, I was hired as a piano and vocal instructor at Stage Notes School of Music in North Richland Hills as well as at the Neighborhood Arts and Music School (NAMS) in Frisco and also began teaching students in my home studio. I insist upon regular, consistent practice which true musical development demands and without which not only progress but also passion and enthusiasm for the music will suffer. I encourage my students to seek live performance opportunities in order to build their confidence and to overcome the potential for such things as stage fright, timidity, etc. and to attend as many live musical performances as possible for observation and enjoyment purposes.
Just like homeschooling, students will learn individually at their own pace. Students must enjoy their lesson. Sometimes the students may find it discouraging but it is my mission to give them acknowledgment in their accomplishments and nurturing so they can continue to flourish and be the best musicians they can be.
I have a classical background with percussion training. Now I am a few years out of college, ready to pass on my knowledge to eager students ready to learn. I have taught off and on for the past four years, with my students being anywhere from 6 to 60. I started privately with only one student, and that grew to several at the same time. I then started teaching at Guitar Center and my teaching career really took off. I hope to grow my clientele and build a studio of my own so I can one day teach from home.

We teach singing to adults of all ages, each of whom have different aims and goals in mind. For many adults, they want to learn how to sing simply for fun or for their karaoke nights. For others, they may want to develop their voices with the goal of becoming a professional vocalist in mind. Advanced students often want to learn a few specific techniques or work on some exercises, such as increasing their range, improving their support, singing with distortion, vibrato, etc. We have a range of experienced teachers in our network who can help with your specific goals.
If you want a healthy voice, you need a healthy body. That means eating a balanced diet, exercising every day, resting properly, and reducing stress. Start with meals and snacks that include fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Drink plenty of water, not beverages loaded with sugar or caffeine. Stop smoking, and spend time each day doing exercises that expand your lung capacity and keep your body fit. Set and keep a regular bedtime, and reduce stress through meditation or by perhaps practicing yoga every day. Rest your voice too instead of screaming or yelling. With your healthy body, enjoy a healthy voice.
Voice lessons improve your singing ability and your vocal performance. Whether you want to audition for a national reality show or prepare for a theatrical performance, the instructors in Musika's network are here to help. These professional teachers create a customized lesson plan for each student that helps you meet your singing goals. We help you discover the best singing genre and style for your voice, and we can guide your song choice. Typically, your teacher will assign you an affordable method book or other supplemental materials for practice. You can find these books online or at local music stores. A partial list of topics you may learn during voice lessons includes, proper breathing control techniques, how to support your voice and increase volume, voice projection tips, how to read musical notation, how to interpret song lyrics and phrases with expression and emotion, and audition and performance tips and techniques, including overcoming stage fright.
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.
In-home voice lessons are convenient and practical. One of the professional instructors in Musika's network comes to your home so you don't have to drive anywhere or schedule extra time into your busy schedule. You can choose any genre you want, and your teacher helps you choose songs that fit your voice and style. You even learn to protect your voice, control your projection, and show the right emotions as you master the art of singing. All you need is a piano or keyboard and sheet music. There's no better way to master singing than with convenient and practical in-home voice lessons.

Henry has been a great piano teacher since I started lessons about a month ago, and he is helping me realize a lifelong dream. He is patient, plays beautifully, is easy to learn from and a very nice person. I took lessons as a child for a year or so, but never followed up over the years. I always said that I would once I retired and found the right instructor. That time is now. Thank you Henry and Musika!

Angela has been a perfect match-up for me. She is warm and welcoming, and also serious about teaching - she keeps our time focused and on track. What I truly appreciate, as a new singer anxiously preparing for an event, is the confidence she gives me. Angela is very encouraging. I enjoy coming to class.

Kevin was such a fun, smart and innovative voice teacher to work with. I had the pleasure of taking lessons with him for over a year and I couldn’t have been more pleased with my time under his training. In just a few weeks I noticed my voice was stronger and I was able to apply his teaching and see the results. He explains his techniques in a way that the student is able to actually hear and feel the changes he is referring to. This allows the student to efficiently practice outside of lessons. Even further, he believed in me and truly cared about my progress. He was always energetic and focused in lessons and was continually surprised how far a song could come in just one hour of his time. Under his teaching I developed a stronger belt in my higher range, learned how to color my voice for different sounds and improved my stage presence. I wholeheartedly trust Kevin’s musical insight and was grateful that he challenged me with a wide variety of songs and styles that I hadn’t considered trying before.
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.

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!

My son and I both take lessons with Micheal. My son started on the ukulele and recently started the guitar. He is excellent with children. Very patient and very intuitive to the child's ability. He is also an excellent teacher for adults. I had not touched my guitar in several years and in a couple months not only to I remember everything I forgot but I'm learning many new techniques and am a much better player than I've ever been.
Review by Carol A
“Lynn is my music hero! She can listen to any song and write down the chords. She will adjust to make it easier or harder whatever your abilities. I have a busy schedule and often don't have time to practice between lessons and she is cool with that. She also will adjust lesson times when she is able which fits my hectic schedule. I'm glad my first guitar teacher "fired" me ....that allowed me to meet Lynn.” - Carol A., M.D., Aug 2015

Dan gave private clarinet lessons to my daughter, Annie, for two years. During that time, she excelled as a member of the middle school band, and maintained first-chair. Dan is an excellent teacher, and Annie looked forward to having one-on-one time with him. In addition to practicing pieces with her, he helped her with scales and greatly improved her tone quality.
Review by William Klepatsky
Very knowledgeable on every aspect of music theory. I listen to recording artists playing various classical pieces, Dan's playing is much like a recording artist's playing. Always on time. Winning happy personality, a great role model. Puts me at ease when I am playing. Have two friends who hold music degrees, I count him a third, something special about the minds and personalities of good pianists. Thanks Dan.
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.
