I have a passion to teach because it's what makes me that much better of a musician and performer. I love watching my students progress and grow into their own.
Songwriting, Performance and coaching experience in Musical theatre, classical/opera, folk music, gospel, jazz (ballads), r&b, classic rock, oldies, country, pop, blues, chorales, and choirs. Studio recording training, artist development, public speaking training, etc.
Lessons are always engaging and focus on technique and musicality. Lessons should be enjoyable and fun but also work. Each new student will begin with training in proper breathing technique and music fundamentals. A great focus is placed on discovering your instrument and caring for it. I encourage students to choose repertoire that they enjoy and want to work on in addition to assigned repertoire. I will always train students with a classical technique. Once we have these basis covered, I work with students on various genres and the intricacies of these.
While achievement is important to me, I believe that developing long-term skills is a far more significant. I prefer to emphasize skill-building and retention, and always want to make sure the student is enjoying the process. I prefer to set realistic short- and long-term goals for students at each lesson, and acknowledge their accomplishments with a system of rewards. Additionally, at the end of each year, I encourage my students' participation in a studio-wide voluntary recital, which is intended to showcase their growth and development over the course of the year as well as afford them an opportunity to perform in public.
I am an enthusiatic teacher/performer who comes from a family of trained musicians. I enjoy sharing my real world and professional experience in music with the students i instruct. I began my training at an early age bring apprenticed in voice and learning the basics of teaching music in a classroom enviornment. after many years of study, I graduated from Carirn University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Bible and Music Education. While in university my main focus was on vocal training, but I never gave up my love for woddwinds and brass instruments either. In the last 25 years I've had the priviledge of performing all over the US and Europe as a soloist and in numerous groups.

There are many elements to vocal training, from learning to read music, to breath control techniques and mastering intonation. In beginning singing lessons, most students will learn and develop proper vocal technique which will help them be able to sing in a variety of styles. This multi-faceted approach is at the core of classical vocal training, giving students a well-rounded knowledge of musical techniques. Singing lessons will also allow students to develop their musical and performance skills and give them the confidence they need to audition and perform on stage.
When you want to sing better but don't have hours of extra time each week, you need in-home voice lessons. They're convenient and practical. A trained and professional instructor from Musika's network comes to your home and uses your keyboard or piano to teach you how to sing better. Your instructor can help you choose a song that fits your voice or supervise your efforts to learn voice control. Don't let your busy schedule and to-do list keep you from improving your singing ability. Sign up for in-home voice lessons, and become the singer you want to be.
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.
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.

Karleen has really turned it around for me. My previous teacher (not from Musika) had me feeling anxious, upset, and incapable...NOT the desired result! Karleen's method is clear, appropriate for my beginning level, and (best of all) actually lets me achieve some progress! I'm actually looking forward to my lessons now!
Review by William Klepatsky
Very knowledgeable on every aspect of music theory. I listen to recording artists playing various classical pieces, Dan's playing is much like a recording artist's playing. Always on time. Winning happy personality, a great role model. Puts me at ease when I am playing. Have two friends who hold music degrees, I count him a third, something special about the minds and personalities of good pianists. Thanks Dan.

Travis rocks. My 7-year-old son and I both take lessons with him. Travis has moved me off the plateau I was on with lessons that focus on theory and technique. And for my son, he's been able to instill a desire and interest that were missing when he previously took piano lessons. With Travis teaching us, the limits are the ones we impose on ourselves. Needless to say, Travis himself plays a mean guitar to boot!
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 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.

I would like to thank Polina for the series of classical piano lessons I've taken recently. Polina is a fantastic teacher and a high class performer, and I'm really happy I had a chance to meet her! I believe anyone can benefit from the teaching method Polina is practicing regardless of the student proficiency - from beginners to advanced performers. It was a pleasure for me to study classical piano courses under the guidance of such an intelligent & professional teacher! Without doubt, my playing technique has improved a lot and I have signed up for the new classes online already.
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!
Review by Wilma
Gina is very supportive and encouraging. Even though I get frustrated with my progress, she can tell that I've been practicing and reminds me of how far I've come. She challenges me to learn new skills without giving me a piece that I cannot master (with practice). I'm happy that she is my music teacher and look forward to many more lessons in the future.
Review by Terri
Caitlyn is friendly, helpful and still holds my high-school aged daughter accountable for practicing. She also makes sure the music technique is mastered correctly during the lessons - they work hard and still have a good time together. I can highly recommend her as a flute teacher. My daughter is very happy & grateful to have found Caitlyn as a teacher.
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.
