Each student learns in a different way so I tailor each lesson plan for that individual. I do have a format with teaching voice that follows tradition - we work on voice exercises and then repetoire. I use Hal Leaonard, Alfred, and Mel Bay books for all instruments.
I have traveled all over the Continental U.S, Germany, Switzerland and Africa as a featured vocalist and workshop clinician. Classically trained and raised in the church, I draw from these different points of reference to add flavor and spice to my performances. My wide range, clear tone, professionalism and modesty set me apart from other vocalists. I have been professionally teaching both individual and group voice lessons for over 13 years, having successfully trained in the 5 year Music Therapy and Vocal Performance Dual Degree program at Berklee College of Music, I look forward to a promising career equipping and educating the next stars of the music industry!
I'm a passionate and dedicated instructor who loves to help students find their inner voice and encourage their love of singing. In 2012, I graduated from Shenandoah University with a Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance and a minor in Piano. Performing all genres of music has been a great experience for me and venturing into the opera world, while continuing to pursue my love for contemporary music, has been a thrilling experience. My greatest performance memory was when I performed and opened the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade two years in a row.
I graduated from MIllersville Univeristy in 2007 with a BA in music. I have been teaching voice and piano privately since 2003 and thoroughly enjoy working with students as they discover their sound. I currently enjoy performing jazz, blues, rock and pop at local venues.I have had the great opportunity of performing with OperaLancaster and the Lancaster Symphony Chorus. I thoroughly enjoyed creating my album; "Behind Closed Doors". This expereince led me to commerical and voice over work as well.
My greatest joy in teaching is seeing my students surpass me and go on to become musicians that love expressing their souls through song! It is my desire to see each student progress at their own rate without stress. first I make it a point to find out why they want to learn and where do they picture themselves going with this ability. Once we have established realistic goals for the student I like to encourage them to try out for competitions and music groups, so that they are exercising their talents effectively. They will be taught the basic techniques of handling their instrument, theory and stage presence. I want them to walk away a well rounded individual who can impact the lives of those around them.

Students can have fun learning how to sing from as young as 11 or 12 years old. As students of this age are approaching puberty, their voices are not fully matured, so care must be taken not to place too much pressure or strain on the voice for fear of risking injury. That said, through lessons and practice, students can learn safe vocal techniques, how to look after their voices, develop their ability to hear and recreate pitch, and work on their musical theory. Students can also improve their concentration levels, confidence, and self-esteem.
Keeping your voice healthy starts with keeping your entire body healthy. Eating 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, consumption of alcohol and drugs. Excessive screaming, speaking or singing for long periods of time, and performing in loud or crowded places without proper amplification should be avoided. Singers should always stay hydrated by drinking purified water, and try to stay away from sugary drinks and colas.
Your voice is the only instrument you can carry with you at all times. Why not do everything you can to take advantage of it. Adult voice lessons are exactly what you need. Trained instructors from Musika's network come to your house or invite you into their studio for regular lessons. We teach you how to maximize your voice, projection, and breathing. If you want to compete in a local or even a national competition, we help you choose a song that's best for your voice. Sing any genre or musical style, and enjoy singing every day when you take adult voice lessons.
Without leaving home, learn how to sing. In-home voice lessons are perfect if you're on a tight schedule or need personalized instruction. A professional teacher from Musika's network comes to your home and uses your piano or keyboard during each customized lessons. The instructor can teach you how to choose music that fits your individual voice, bring personality to a song, and project your voice during a performance. You can sing your favorite genre or learn a new musical style. Make voice lessons a priority and learn to sing to fun or to earn a living. All you need are in-home voice lessons.
Regardless of whether you want to sing Rock, Pop, Folk, or Musical Theatre, our vocal lessons can develop your singing technique in a safe, effective way that can be applied to all of the above genres and many more. Students will learn a whole host of fun exercises that are designed to develop your vocal technique and build strength, endurance, and vocal power. Through a good understanding of how the voice works and by practicing the exercises taught during lessons, you can improve your vocal tonality, develop skills such as vibrato, pitch, and harmony, and increase your vocal range; usually by at least one full octave. You will learn how to connect the chest and head registers, maintain steady air pressure and vocal fold closure, tilting of the thyroid cartilage (to switch registers) and how to build these techniques until you can apply them to your favorite songs.

Cory is simply the greatest instructor ever! His 30 year plus teaching experience along with his knowledge of ever longer in music composition and performance make a real difference if you're in for learning the right way. Thank you Cory for teaching me not only the chords but also the history behind it and awesome tricks on getting better faster ;)

Ileen is a very attentive instuctor. she is patient and works hard to see her student succeed. if a concept is unclear she expains it in other ways to ensure understanding. I would highly recommend ileen to students of all levels who want to learn guitar and music theory to thoroughly enjoy the instrument and music
Review by Leslyn
Steve is an excellent instructor. My son has really connected with him and he is learning the guitar quickly. Steve is patient and never rushes through a lesson in order to make it fit within the session time limit. In addition, before he leaves, he writes notes and instructions for my son to follow. By the next lesson, my son is confident in what Steve has taught him. Most importantly, Steve builds my son's confidence in his own own ability and progress after each lesson.

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 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 Chrystal
I was skeptical at first not knowing what I was getting my self into.. I am very happy that I forced myself to get into voice lessons because Eli is an awsome voice coach.. Very skillful and he helps you reach the goal you are trying to reach.. He is also very helpful with getting you to open up and come out of your shell and being heard.. I would and I already have recommended friends and family to sign up with Eli if they're serious about singing..

After signing up for lessons with David L. I knew I made the right choice. Just after a couple of weeks I didn't see him as a teacher but as a best friend. There was always a relaxed atmosphere during the lessons. He was very easy to talk to and he really listen to you. If I ever had a question he would answer. He tailors to what ever you want to do in that lesson. David L. is a great teacher and a friend. I totally recommend him for anyone
Review by Susan
My daughter is extremely happy and comfortable with Rachel, and looks forward to her piano lessons every week. She is a very kind and patient teacher, always using positive reenforcement with my daughter, which makes all the difference in the world to children. We definitely are looking forward to continued piano lessons with her. So glad we found her.
Review by Heather Berest
I started my 5 yr old daughter with Karleen this Fall. Karleen has a calm and honest disposition. My daughter adores her and cannot wait for her arrival. I was concerned because my daughter is not so willing to "practice" during the week. Karleen advised me to allow her habits of practicing to evolve naturally as her love and understanding of piano increases. She emphasized how nurturing my daughter's love of music is most important. This was music to my ears :)
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.
