Lessons are fun and individualized to suit the needs of each student. I believe that learning music should be both challenging and fun! Please note: Effective training will require a moderate level of dedication to practice and preparation on the student's part.
For begining students who are under the age of thirteen, I prefer to start with Bastien's Piano Basics. This series comes with four different books (Technic, Piano, Performance, and Theory) that give the student a well rounded lesson. For students over the age of thirteen, I like to use Alfred's Basic Piano Course. This series has a more mature song selection, a variety of genres, includes music theory, and has piano excercises. No matter what age or level, I strive to keep each lesson exciting and rewarding
My very first voice student ever is still very near and dear to my heart... he was not born with this supposed magic singing gene that often mystifies singing as some exclusive bloodline art form. He sang in a couple choirs but canonical pedagogy never taught him melisma like Stevie Wonder, use the brassy aryepiglottic sphincter posturing of Amy Winehouse, or how to use whistle tones after puberty like Mariah Carey.... just the standard posture and diction. By learning the anatomical mechanics of these understudied techniques and tonal modifications, along with patiently catering to his individual learning style, he learned how to do these things and more. Having no natural background in singing, this student himself actually taught me how to teach from the ground up. I have carried this insight from private lessons at my alma mater in 2011 to my present studio position, which is open to ALL genres as I have taught this student the elasticity to handle the vocal demands of just about every genre I have ever experienced. I take great pride in this, but I knew things would only get better from that first student.... seeing as he is me.
I have started teaching shortly before college, and have a proven track record of working as an independent instructor and part of teaching collectives. I am a member in good standing with both MTNA and MSMTA, and have been consistently teaching students out of my home studio for the past 15 years. With younger students, I prefer emphasizing habit formation, such as setting a practice schedule, regularly committing to a set amount of practicing time, and develop a passion for the piano. I am comfortable teaching all age groups and levels, and emphasize achievement through fun and learning, as it is important to me that students develop a lasting relationship with the instrument and repertoire.
Fun but tough. I can tell when a learner hasn't practiced, and it affects the lesson and growth. I always try to make sure that the learner ends the lesson feeling accomplished.

Students will learn and develop good, safe, and modern vocal technique during their vocal lessons. The aim is to get students to be able to sing without strain, discomfort, or constriction throughout the whole of their range, in key, and in a clean, full sounding tone, and then apply these techniques to singing songs in various genres. 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. The teachers in our network can also help students who have tuning problems by conducting exercises that work on their pitch. Lessons can also cover musical theory, performance tips, and vocal effects such as safe vibrato and developing vocal agility through runs and fills. Students can also learn vocal physiology.
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.
For a strong and healthy voice, maintain a strong and healthy body. First, exercise every day. Jogging, swimming, or biking improves your body's stamina and fitness. Then choose foods and beverages that fuel your body with nutrition. Vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, whole grains, and water are excellent dietary choices. Next, rest your voice. Singing, yelling, or talking loudly during the day can harm your vocal cords. Smoking is bad for your voice too. Finally, get enough physical rest. Go to bed on time each night and reduce stress. As you maintain your healthy body, you also maintain a healthy voice.
Have you always wanted to be a singer? You are never too old to learn how to sing or to become a better singer. Musika offers individualized adult voice lessons geared to your needs. Learn to sing Pop, Jazz, or Classical music, or prepare for a national competition like American Idol or The Voice. Expand your vocal range or learn how to choose songs that compliment your voice. No matter what your musical goals are, the professional instructors in our network are here to help train you to become a better singer whether you've just started singing now or have been singing since you were a child.
Young children who have not reached vocal maturity must be careful when considering taking singing lessons. Over working the voice at such a young age risks causing strain and damage to the vocal folds, which are very delicate. As such, we recommend students start lessons at no younger than 12 years old. Students at this age can learn safe, effective vocal techniques that will prevent learning and developing bad singing habits in the future. They can also develop their critical hearing, music theory knowledge, and understanding of techniques such as supporting the voice with good breath management and skills like vibrato.

“Lynn has taught my daughter guitar for 9 years. She has always managed to keep her engaged and provide an exceptional learning experience. She tailors the lesson specifically to the student’s interests and abilities. She provides many opportunities for students to showcase their talents outside of lessons. We love working with Lynn.” Maureen Young, Dir. of Finance, Aug 2015

Noel is amazing. She is helping me to work toward my vocal goals for auditions to several musical theaters. She has helped me choose strong audition pieces and is teaching excellent ways to get the sound I need in a safe and healthy way. She works outside our lessons on new warm ups and new music pieces. She is the best.

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 Ruslan
She is the most amazing teacher ever. She is not only w great teacher but she's so fun to work with. She has taught me so many things in such little amount of time things I didn't even know I could do. I recommend Andrea to everyone. She is an amazing singer and cares a lot about her students. She's the best!!

I've always said, "It's all about the teacher." That skillful, effective teacher who can reach that child and ignite her passion, is truly a gift. Ric does that for my daughter. As a former music teacher myself, the most challenging thing in working with children is how to build their fundamental musical skills while letting them have fun and be expressive. The teacher must create a safe, supportive environment, and Ric does that. Ric immediately focuses on fundamentals of tone and technique, giving my daughter succinct instruction on how to improve, thus she can sense the improvement immediately. Ric seems extremely easy going; even when lighting a fire under her sometimes under-achieving butt, Ric never criticizes, judges or blames. He works with my child, understanding her, helping her problem solve, and even giving her the quick answer sometimes so she can move quickly and stay motivated. Ric balances fundamentals with fun and expressiveness, so my child feels as though she can 'play' and they truly make music in every lesson. I am thankful we found a good match with Ric.
Review by Jeremy
Dr. Nedra C is incredible. She knows her craft in and out, it truly shows in her teaching. As well, she cares a great deal about the student, and preps plenty of material outside of the lesson for those that she teaches. I've had many different music teachers and am aware who's talented and cares, and who isn't. Dr. Nedra C is true phenomenal, and any student would be lucky to have her.

Mr. Lou M. is a God-send! With the various needs that our organization requires from our education partners in order to provide enrichment services to our students, Mr. Lou M. has always gone above and beyond in meeting all of those needs. Our students are learning, our caregivers are happy and satisfied, and we couldn't be more pleased with his performance.

Michael is exactly what I was looking for in a teacher. The first thing he did was to determine what I wanted to get out of lessons, and what my existing skill level is. He is now aiming me in the right direction - and he is clearly skilled, experienced and knowledgeable, in addition to being very easy to get along with. I'm very happy.

My daughter has been taking piano lessons through her school district program for the last two years. She had learned a lot in that class but I noticed that she needed advanced classes at this point. After reviewing several websites I decided to enroll my daughter for the trial at MUSIKA. We got Mrs. Veronica B., and I am more than happy we got her as my daughter's teacher. Mrs. Veronica B. was very professional and very knowledgeable at the trial day. She was able to assess my daughter skill's level, and then she was able to give suggestions about how to improve those skills. My daughter has taken 5 classes with Mrs. Barker, and I can see she enjoys each class and she's improved a lot since day one. I can picture my daughter playing her favorites songs on the piano very soon!!! :-)
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.
