I teach 1-on-1 with students in a personal, attentive environment. I try to provide a very professional, yet comfortable setting for my students to meet their needs. I have 5+ years of experience teaching private and group lessons and am capable of tailoring lesson plans to suit the student's needs. I am capable of traveling to the student's home, if necessary.
Additionally, I help my students cultivate the ability to listen to their own playing. Students who have a strong aural image of what they want from the piano will progress quickly in many ways. They need to open up their ears to nuance, color, articulations, voicing, etc. I would love to help you, or your kids to become a better pianist, and a polished artist.
I've been performing for over 15 years as a musician and composer. A Baritone, I studied vocal performance, under Glenn Siebert, at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. I've performed with the Piedmont Opera, and composed works for the stage, feature length film, and short film. I began my musical career in Raleigh, NC, where I took the stage as a show choir performer, before becoming a member of the Sanderson High School Sandpipers. I helped lead under Director Marshall Butler to win national competitions in Orlando and New Orleans, and also sang as a soloist at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in New York City. At UNCSA I performed the title role of Signor Deluso in 2010, and also learned the roles of Count Almaviva in Le Nozze Di Figaro, and Guglielmo in Cosi Fan Tutte. I've also played in productions such as Street Scene, Dont Drink the Water, The Devil and Kate, Il Mondo Della Luna, L'elisir D'amore, Maria Stuarda, and Turandot. I have been living and working in Winston-Salem for 6 years.
I am a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where I received both my Bachelors of Music in Vocal Performance and my Masters of Music in Vocal Pedagogy. I have extensive stage and recital experience in both musical theater and operatic repertoire. My musical theater experience includes rolls such as Sky Masterson in Guys and Dolls and Senex in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. During my time at UNCG, I sang the roles of Kaspar in Amahl and the Night Visitors, which I also sang with the Durham Children's Choir. I also sang the roles of Gabriel Von Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus, The Defendant in Gilbert and Sullivan's Trial by Jury, along with participating in the ensembles in The Mikado, L'Enfant et les Sortilege, L'Enfant Prodigue, and Cendrillion. I also sang Timothy in Help, Help The Globolinks!, the First Slave in The Magic Flute, and participated in the ensemble of La Traviata with Greensboro Opera. I have studied voice with Ms. Cheryl Dobson, Dr. Donald Hartmann, and Dr. Robert Wells.
I am a multi-talented singer, musician, producer, and songwriter. Born with perfect pitch, I took classical piano lessons starting at the age of three and took lessons from well recognized and top professors from the UNT Faculty. I studied Jazz Vocal Performance from University of North Texas. My versatile background allows me to be flexible in teaching both Classical, Jazz, Pop, and other popular genres. Music has always been a part of my life and I want to share what I've learned throughout my experiences to others. I am also currently working in the studio recording my solo album and want to continue to further develop future artists and talent.

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.
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.
The focus of singing lessons will be to teach students how to sing using proper technique in a safe way. Students will work on a variety of different vocal exercises that are designed to build strength, coordination, and add power to the voice. 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. For students with pitch problems, teachers can work through specific exercises to address such issues and get students singing on pitch. Students will learn how to put the various techniques and exercises that are taught into practical use by singing songs. The techniques taught can be applied to a variety of musical genres, from Metal to Pop. Students can also learn music theory and vocal physiology.
When your child asks for voice lessons, make sure he or she is emotionally and physically mature enough. Before puberty, a child's voice is not yet ready for the strain of prolonged and regular vocal training. The voice could undergo permanent damage if you start lessons too soon. Instead, wait until your child is at least 11 or 12 years old. Waiting until the recommended age to start voice lessons increases your child's ability to succeed while mastering the art of singing. It also protects your child's voice so he or she can perform in the future.
Adult students often have a specific singing goal in mind when starting their lessons. For example, many singers who enjoy rock music want to increase their vocal ranges so they can sing along on pitch with their favorite vocalists. Increasing the range of the voice requires a few fairly simple techniques, but they take time to master and apply to songs. Other students may want to learn to sing just for fun, to join a band, or to prepare for auditions, such as The X Factor, The Voice, American Idol, or a music college.

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!!

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

Omar is a great teacher as he provides expert instruction AND the right amount of encouragement. He is a professional musician on several instruments, yet he is patient with beginners! He also has gone out of his way to purchase an appropriate book for me, strings to re-string the cello, and extra attention to tuning. I appreciate how he explains and demonstrates exactly what a beginning cello student needs to know.
Review by Mythili Lahiri
My son is truly enjoying his lessons with Chris. He looks forward to them and is motivated to practice. Chris is conscientious and shows up on time and whenever he is supposed to. He communicates clearly if rescheduling is ever required and is accommodating when we need to change the day. I would recommend Chris to anyone.
Review by Kristin
Ted S. is teaching clarinet to one of my children, and piano to two others. He is extremely knowledgeable, and very encouraging. His teaching methods are keeping my children enthused about their lessons, and without that, you have nothing. Two of my children were taking piano lesson from another teacher for the past year, and not progressing. Ted has been able to evaluate their skills individually, determine what was missing in their music education, and begin again with some early basics they seem to have missed. I am convinced we are finally moving forward, and am very happy about that. I wish I would have made this change much earlier.

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
Review by Debbie E.
I had always wanted to take vocal lessons, but was very nervous about it until I had the opportunity to have Ali as my instructor. She made me feel very comfortable and helped me realize my strengths while giving me other areas to work on and strengthen. I liked how Ali had me sing out of my "comfort" zone to realize my vocal range. It is obvious that Ali loves music and sharing that love with her students. She is very good at what she does and works well with both male and female voices. I highly recommend Ali and give her solid 5 stars
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!
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.
