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.
I am a music teacher who is passionate about music and teaching. For the past eight years, I have enjoyed working with students of all ages and levels. In 2014, I graduated from college earning my BA in Music Education. Along with teaching, I enjoy playing piano at church and using my talents for the Lord.
My teaching experience began back in my adolence years, when I was hired to be a choir director at an inner city church.I continued to teach all through my high school years, where I was discovered and offered scholarships by several music schools and conservatories. I expanded my love for teaching and performing as a Student Instructor while teaching in the School of Music and Performing Arts at university. Practice and discipline are an important part of becoming an accomplished musicican but if the student doesn't have passion for what they're doing, then its all in vein. That's my goal as a teacher, to help the student bring technique and passion together to create the master piece which is their talent.
I am a combination of a traditional and fun teacher. I value the traditional side of my teaching because it ensures healthy singing which in turn promotes longevity of the voice. This traditionalism will show my students what I expect from them. I want to enstill in my students the value of discipline in a craft. I love my fun side of my teaching because it allows the student to enjoy the process of growing into a great musician. Music is hardwork! Despite its hard work, it is a Universal Language that connects us all and brings us joy. I teach my students to understand the musical experience that they provide for their audience. I let my students pick some of their own pieces with my provision. I customize my lessons for the student. No student will have the same lesson, but my expectation for greatness will not be compromised. All students are capable of achieving greatness! I encourage my students through everything. Small progress is still progress and I love seeing it! I aspire to motivate all of my students to the top of their potential.
I have taught one-on-one lessons for guitar, voice, piano, and trumpet for multiple years. My lessons are student-driven so that the learner can begin to critically think about and perform music on their own without the constant "need" for a teacher. I have taught a wide-range of learners of different ages and abilities. With the guidance from me, learners feel confident in their ability to successfully perform.

Background checks available on instructors. Instructor can opt to have a background check on file. You can request to only be connected with teachers that have a check. The choice is yours.
Learn to sing any musical genre or style when you take adult voice lessons. Voice instructors in Musika's network are trained in Country, Classical, Opera, R&B, and many other genres. Teachers can help you choose songs in your favorite genre that fit your vocal tone and range. Then, perfect your technique as you practice controlling your breathing, caring for your vocal cords, and projecting your voice. We may also teach you how to prepare for auditions and improve your on-stage performance. Enjoy adult voice lessons in a teacher's private studio or in the comfort of your home as you improve your singing ability.
Keeping your voice healthy starts with keeping your entire body healthy. The voice is contained within the body, so following a balanced diet, getting adequate sleep, and reducing stress are all keys to keeping your body and voice healthy. Singers should avoid excess caffeine, smoking, and consumption of alcohol and drugs. Excessive screaming, speaking, performing in loud or crowded places without proper amplification, and singing for a prolonged amount of time without rest should all be avoided. Singers should always stay hydrated by drinking purified water, and try to stay away from sugary drinks and colas.
Whether you sing for pleasure or sing professionally, you need voice lessons. They help you learn everything you need to know about using your singing instrument. From caring for your voice to selecting music, a voice instructor teaches you want you need to know. Yet you don't need to travel to a professional studio to learn how to sing. Instructors from Musika's network come to your home. They use your piano or keyboard to share their professional and experienced instruction. With in-home voice lessons, prepare for performances or practice projection while saving time and staying comfortable. Then practice everything you learned for a living or for fun.
For children who enjoy singing and want to improve their singing ability, we recommend delaying voice lessons until after age 11 or 12. The vocal instrument is a sensitive one that can be easily damaged or strained. By delaying lessons until the voice is mature, kids protect their voice. While the expert instructors in our network are able to teach students of all ages, we highly recommend young children wait until their voice is able to handle the workload required for voice lesson success. After puberty, kids and their voices are mature enough for the daily exercises and regular lessons provided by the professional and trained teachers in our network.
Voice lessons will focus on developing proper breathing and vocal technique to improve your singing. You will learn how to support and project your voice even as you learn to read music. You will also learn how to interpret different styles of music, develop performance techniques, and emotionally interpret song lyrics and phrases. The most important thing you will learn in voice lessons is how to express yourself through singing!

We've only had a few lessons with Elisa, but so far we really like her. She has a lot of great suggestions for solo pieces as well as orchestral music that involves all 3 of my boys, while also including some Christian music that we can play at church. She is very patient in explaining the lessons and encouraging!
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.

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.

I have been playing the drums for about 5 years and I have to say that Alvaro is very patient. He has opened me up to new styles of music and I can now play a Songo groove! What I liked most was that he was flexible in what I wanted him to teach me and would also bring in new material specifically to what I wanted him to show me. Overall, great patient teacher and would highly recommend! Thanks Alvaro!

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.

Erin has been a wonderful voice/piano teacher for our 7 year old daughter. She is talented, patient, and has a wonderful demeanor. She has been consistent with her teaching in piano and voice. She keeps record of where the students leave off so that they know what to expect the following week. I would definitely recommend Erin to anyone looking for a skilled piano/voice teacher.
Review by Joshua Thompson
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 4-year-old has had several lessons with Martina now, and he has learned a lot. Obviously, it is challenging to teach such a young child, and he has learned quite a lot in a short time, and is very excited to learn about violin and for his lessons. I think Martina is doing an excellent job, is quite patient, and is teaching him in such a way that he can really remember his new skills from week to week. We look forward to many more lessons with Ms. Martina!

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+
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.
