I have been teaching all age ranges for 10 years. My goals are to make technique and performance perfect, and also have an understanding of the music in its time period and what the composer would want. I also encourage students to write their own music, and also improvise.
In my private lessons I emphasize building a strong foundation in rhythm, intonation, and note accuracy. I incorporate learning theory, and playing with musical intention into every lesson to develop maturity, even in young musicians. My students are comfortable reading music, and have all the skills they need to practice effectively. In addition, I have prepared many musicians for successful concerts, festivals, and gigs. I create my own custom lesson plans and materials to cater to the students needs. For young beginners, I recommend the KJOS Standard of Excellence book.
Success starts with conversation. I will find out what the student is interested in learning and devise the most effiecient path to success. My methods are both scientific and tactile, and if they are followed correctly, the student is sure to experience rapid growth.
I love seeing my students develop a passion for music! That is why I make sure each student progresses at their own pace by setting realistic goals for each lesson. I always acknowledge a student when they practice very hard and ask great questions. By understanding what the student wants out of the lesson, I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs.
My goal of teaching music is to encourage my students to invest a high level of time and energy into developing their skills on their own. Most of your learning will come from personal practice time. If thought this way, then the time we have together will be focused on taking students to the next step of their potentials. Listening to your own voice is the first step to developing your personal technique and artistry. I ask that each student record their lessons, listen to them on their personal time, and give an email transcription of what they learned that day. Money is waisted on me teaching you what you know during lessons. By doing transcriptions you will be more intuitive about what steps to take to become a better musician, so that eventually you can become self-efficient.

Your body and voice are interconnected. If your body is healthy, your voice will be too. That's why you need to eat a balanced diet, exercise daily, get enough sleep, and rest your voice. When choosing food, pick whole grains, fresh produce, and lean protein. Drink water instead of soda, caffeine, or alcohol. Every day, perform aerobic exercise. Swimming, running and biking improve your overall fitness and strengthen your body. Maintain an adequate sleep schedule. A regular bedtime can help you get enough sleep. Then rest your voice. You can't yell, scream, or sing throughout the day and enjoy a healthy voice. With these tips, both your body and your voice stay healthy.
We advise that young students looking to take singing lessons do so at no younger than 11 years old, as they have yet to reach 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 benefit from learning key skills like proper breathing techniques, hearing and recreating pitch, and performance techniques. They can also prepare for exams, rehearsals, and competitions. Learning how to sing is also good for children's overall development, as they will improve their concentration skills, raise their self-esteem and confidence, and develop a positive, hard-working attitude as well as a habit of self-discipline through regular practice and lessons.
There are numerous reasons why adults may wish to start taking singing lessons. Singing is a highly enjoyable, fun, and creative way to express yourself musically. Many students take lessons simply to improve their singing for fun or to take up a new hobby. Students who have specific goals in mind can also have lessons to achieve those aims. Often singers want to improve a particular aspect of their singing such as increasing their vocal range or learning to sing with vibrato or greater agility (runs, fills, etc.) Singers who have a certain style of singing in mind can also learn the techniques behind a wide range of genres.
Master the art of singing with in-home voice lessons. Professional instructors from Musika's network come to your house and help you improve your control and projection. They generally use your keyboard or piano to help you select music and sing each song correctly. Learn how to read music and how to express the song's emotion. You can also learn which songs best fit your voice and how to sing a variety of genres. If you want to be the best singer you can be, you need voice lessons. Take them from the comfort of your home to save time and become a singing master.
Vocal lessons cover various aspects of singing, such as vocal technique, song interpretation, and developing a personal singing style. During lessons, students will work through different exercises that are designed to strengthen and develop different aspects of the voice. Students will practice exercises such as sirens on an octave scale, as these are great for helping to develop the necessary timing and coordination needed to cross vocal registers and start building vocal range. Developing range requires maintaining vocal fold compression through the passagio and into the head voice, tilting the thyroid cartilage, and modifying closed vowel sounds to open vowels. Students will also learn how to support their voices with good breath management and can apply the techniques learned to songs of various genres. Students can also improve their tone, pitch, and musical theory knowledge, as well as prepare for gigs, recording sessions, or auditions.
Review by Natalie Kretcher
I really like her. And as an adult student, a good teacher who keeps the pace up but still keeps it reasonable in terms of difficulty is really hard to find. She does a great job of explaining little detail things in terms I (as a musically challenged human) can understand. I'm having a blast! 10/10 would recommend!

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 Steve Newman
My daughter began learning sax in her school band, but she didn't begin PLAYING sax until she started lessons with Debra. From scales and exercises to actual pieces, Debra coached my daughter with real insight, sensitivity, and patience. Her knowledge of the instrument and feeling for music - along with her easy-going,"kid friendly" personality - make Debra the ideal teacher and musical mentor.
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 John
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.
Review by Jennifer
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!!
Review by Julie Buranelli
My daughter really enjoys her lessons with Pavel. She is an absolute beginner and Pavel is right with her as she learns the basics. She is completely engaged and always looks forward to her lesson. He packs a lot of learning into their 30 minute time slot - he gets right to it as soon as he walks in the door! He is a great teacher - we highly recommend!
Review by Jeff N.
Travis is an extremely knowledgeable guitarist and teacher. Travis is equally comfortable in playing/teaching jazz, rock, blues, or classical styles. I really like the way he explains things and he has the ability to make difficult material seem simpler. Travis is very likeable, enthusiastic, and always very professional. I think Travis would be great teaching either children or adults because he's very patient. My learning experience with Travis has been outstanding. He taught me some great techniques for chord substitution and for soloing. I'll continue to work with Travis because he inspires me to be a better guitarist. I think he could really help me with composing because he writes some great songs too! Thanks Travis!
Review by Ginger
Unbelievably Awesome. My daughter is a beginner and has some special needs. Justin is more than patient and helpful while being completely thorough and pushing her (in a good way) to try harder. He is encouraging and teaches effectively. I am very pleased. More important, so is my daughter. Thank you Musika! So grateful we found your service and connected with Justin. We highly recommend him.
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.
