I have been teaching private lessons since 2006, and will be teaching music in the public school system in the near future.
I attained my M. Ed. in leadership and supervision at Antioch University. There I learned how better apply my teaching methods for more beneficial outcomes. My most recent employment, with Nashville Public Schools (Music City!!!), afforded me the opportunity to teach modern band. Modern band philosophy combines instruments from various ensembles and allows the students the opportunity to explore and integrate the instrument of their interest into that band. Modern Band is basically a rock band that is opened to other instruments and ideas that are most times contradictory to a typical rock band. I am an effective music instructor and each student will gain confidence and insight from my guidance.
I've met many famous musicians in the past, including Willie Nelson, John Mayer, Demi Lovato, and Paul Simon, among others, and have had the pleasure to discuss with them the techniques and follow through necessary to make it in the business. Additionally, I was taught and led by vocalists who have toured in both bands and musical casts, by managers and marketers who are currently working with high profile acts like Aerosmith, The Civil Wars, and Counting Crows, have personally performed for and with thousands of other like-minded individuals, and have studied my craft thoroughly since I was a child.Whether you are looking for classical training, modern stylistics, or anything in between, I can meet your requirements and give you the tools necessary to push yourself ahead.
I absolutely love it when I see my students progressing and that the techniques that are implemented are working. Singing is as easy as breathing, so if there is any problem, we will always stop to troubleshoot. I will ask in the beginning what goals you have and if there is anything in particular for which you're training. After laying down foundational techniques, we can then move on to learning a song and breaking it down so that it becomes your personal interpretation. I always encourage my students to provide POSITIVE feedback about how they sounded so that focus on their progression. There's always something that can be criticized, but the spotlight and celebration will be on what the student did well (even if it was just getting through the song.)

Voice lessons will focus on developing proper breathing technique and vocal technique and ways to improve your singing. You will learn how to support and project your voice, and how to read music so that you can read the melody of the singing line. You will also learn how to interpret different styles of music, performance techniques, and how to emotionally interpret song lyrics and phrases. The most important thing you will learn in voice lessons is how to express yourself through singing!
Adult voice students want to learn how to sing better. If that describes you, achieve your goal with instruction from experienced instructors from Musika's network. These instructors can teach proper breathing techniques, voice control, and vocal exercises. Additionally, the professional teachers in our network have experience in every musical genre. As an adult student, learn to sing Jazz, Pop, Country, Classical, and a variety of specific styles within each genre. Musical instructors help you choose songs that fit your voice and prepare for national competitions, regional auditions, or personal enjoyment. If learning how to sing better is one skill you want, adult voice lessons will help you reach that goal.
Students who take vocal lessons from a young age will learn safe, effective vocal techniques that are suited to the current level of ability and vocal maturity. Learning good vocal habits early on prevents the risk of injury or fatigue or possible misuse of the voice in the future. Students will also be exposed to a creative, fun, musical environment which can be good for their overall development and can help instill a positive attitude and hard working ethics through regular practice and lessons. Students of this age (11-12 years old) will generally work on pitch, basic techniques, and music theory.
Your voice is only as healthy as your body. That's because you can't sing your best if your body is unhealthy, sick, tired, or stressed. Improve your vocal performance by caring for your physical health. Eat a balanced diet, and drink plenty of water. Quit smoking, don't take illegal drugs, and limit alcohol. Strengthen your core, including your lungs, by performing aerobic exercises every day. Rest your body with a good nights sleep, and reduce stress during the day. You'll also want to rest your voice, which means limiting yelling, cheering, or screaming. To keep you voice healthy, keep your body health.
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.
Review by Suzette
She is amazing! My daughter, Isabella (7 yrs) is totally engaged in the lesson. Lilly's definitely has a gift with teaching young children!!! A great talent of hers is making the content interesting, current to today's music and most of all fun! She has a knack for taking the material and translating it in a way that is relatable to Isabella. My daughter really enjoys her lesson's and has moved along rather quickly with the material. Thanks Lilly!

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 Bradford Putt
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.
Review by La from Issaquah
thank you musika and ed. I never thought of looking for an in-home lesson until I found musika. I have absolutely no hesitation that Ed is beyond capable. He's even offered to meet us at a music store to purchase the correct fitting instrument. how fabulous is that! We've also decided to extend the lesson time from 30 to 45 minutes. All this and just one lesson under our belt. He quickly understood where my daughter is at in level and her style of music. I'm thrilled as can be.

"My daughter is 10 years old and has been taking piano lessons with Mr. Dale J. for almost 4 years now. She is progressing nicely. His kind and gentle way make for a very positive learning experience. Mr. Dale J. is encouraging without being harsh or belittling. He is patient and the ideal instructor for my daughter."
Review by Claudiaaustin
Our kids love Mr. Lynwood. Mr. Lynwood is very patient and skillful teaching our kids both music theory and guitar/piano. He keeps them engaged and motivated during their lessons and we are seeing -or rather hearing- fast improvement in the kids' dexterity playing their respective instruments. We would recommend this good natured instructor to anybody.

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 Valerie Moore
Kevin is very friendly and professional trombone teacher. During the first session he assessed my 12 year old son's strengths and identified areas for development. He has helped him refine his technique which helps our son in band class but also has him working on duets that help him grow in new ways. He comes to our home and is always very punctual. I would highly recommend Kevin!

There are only a handful of people I count in my life who were great teachers, and Laura is one of them. Her musicianship is so secure as are her technique and personality that she zeros in on my weaknesses and devises exercises to strengthen them, and during the lesson it is not "Do this, no, do that" which is unnerving to a novice. She understands the most important part of study is relaxation, so that is easy to achieve with such a confident and compassionate human. Music is her life and she is eager to share her talent with everyone. A rare find, indeed!
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.
