I graduated in 2005 from Harding University with a Bachelors Degree in Vocal Music Education. After graduation, I taught elementary music at Stafford Elementary for 6 years. I sang with the Houston Symphony Chorus during the 2007, 2008, and 2009 seasons and sang with the Moores School of Music Choral Artists for a season. In 2011, I left the public school to begin my own teaching studio.
I began teaching and working with children about 10 years ago in a public school setting. I've worked with children in various settings including the YMCA, local Sports Teams, and youth programs at several churches. I've taught music for 6 years and have enjoyed it since. I like to encourage those students who enjoy music as much as I do, to get involved in other music programs in the community, at school, or even at church, that way their gifts can be shared with others. At my studio, I emphasize the importance of committment, determination, and excellence because not only do those apply to music in regards to practice, performance, and continual growth, but also to life's princinples. My students are encouraged to perform at recitals, enter competitions, compose their own material, and listen to other music they are interested in playing, that way they stay motivated to learn. Last, I like to reward students for their accomplishments and their progress in their musical journey to success.
I despise force-feeding techniques and information to my students. In the processing of learning, I try my utter best to make sure my students understand what I teach to them. It will facilitate tremendously if the student understands the technique when he/she is practicing. I always set clear goals for each lesson so that there is a consistent progress. However, my lessons are not boring but full of energy. I will let you grow more passion in singing and more importantly, in music.
I started learning and playing piano from an early age, and have been teaching music for over thirty years. More than anything I strive to introduce my students to the beauty of music, and approach them with the same amount of passion and enthusiasm. I try to make the learning experience as fun as possible, while ensuring progress. I am very positive and my biggest priority is to make my students happy and make sure they enjoy every lesson. I am motivated and give my all when it comes to my students, and am even more inspired to get involved if someone among them wants to approach music professionally. I believe that age is irrelevant when it comes to music, all that matters is desire.
My style of teaching is designed to meet the musical needs of each student. I create and atmospere for learning and I make sure that I clearly explain the exercise or lesson that we are working on. I want to make sure that my students are learning to the best of their musical abilty. I motivate them to learn more everytime that we have a session.

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.
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.
Learning how to sing can be highly rewarding, enjoyable, and carries many other benefits. Learning correct vocal technique and singing can keep your voice healthy, relieve stress, and have positive social impacts - such as joining a choir group, band, or participating in karaoke nights! Taking lessons with the experienced teachers in our network can also be beneficial for those who would like a professional, objective assessment of their voices or for those who would like to learn or work on a specific vocal technique. Students can also be prepared for exams, gigs, and auditions.
Children who enjoy singing may benefit from voice lessons. Formal vocal training improves a child's singing ability and range. The ideal age to start voice lessons occurs sometime after age 11 or 12 and after a child reaches puberty. Vocal training before that age could damage or strain a child's voice. By waiting until puberty, children reduce their risk of suffering an injury, and they increase their chances of improved vocal performance. Many kids have fun singing, and they can receive all the benefits of voice lessons if they wait until they are physically mature enough.
With a healthy body, you sing clearly and protect your vocal cords. Maintain a healthy body by eating a balanced diet, exercising, and resting. Start with balanced meals. They should include whole grains, vegetables, and fruits. Avoid sugary foods and drinks, and choose water instead. Exercise every day. Aerobic sports increase your body's fitness levels and improve your ability control your voice as you sing. Every night, sleep soundly when you stick to a relaxing bedtime routine and limit distractions. Finally, rest your voice. Speak softly and limit yelling. With these tips, you'll be able to maintain a healthy body and sing clearly.

Our kids love Mr. Lynwood. Mr. Lynwood is very patient and skillful teaching our kids both music theory and guitar/piano. He keeps them engaged and motivated during their lessons and we are seeing -or rather hearing- fast improvement in the kids' dexterity playing their respective instruments. We would recommend this good natured instructor to anybody.
Review by La from Issaquah
thank you musika and ed. I never thought of looking for an in-home lesson until I found musika. I have absolutely no hesitation that Ed is beyond capable. He's even offered to meet us at a music store to purchase the correct fitting instrument. how fabulous is that! We've also decided to extend the lesson time from 30 to 45 minutes. All this and just one lesson under our belt. He quickly understood where my daughter is at in level and her style of music. I'm thrilled as can be.

“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

Vince is a great drum teacher for my 8 year old son. We go to his house where he has a studio setup with a huge drum set. He has been very patient but really holds my son responsible for learning the right way to play. After about 5 lessons, my son is playing some rhythms on the drums and reading music. He looks forward to his lessons with Vince.

Amber is personal and cares about her students. She is flexible in her schedule and maintains a professional attitude in her lessons. Her want for her students to succeed makes her excel as a teacher. She is very knowledgeable about music and extremely experienced. Additionally, she includes external activities aside from lessons for the students who wish to advance themselves externally. Really a great teacher who offers great opportunity.

Brett is an accomplished musician, who shared his knowledge at a level that my five year old understands. He is polite and relaxed in his mannerisms but take a serious approach to focusing on the lesson. He is very patient and engaging with the attention span you'd expect from a kindergartener. His motto ever is "sometime you learn faster by going slow"
Review by Brooklyn
Laura is a fabulous teacher. She explains concepts to me using concrete examples so that I can understand changes that I need to make to my posture, breathing, phrasing, etc. She makes warm-up exercises fun, and she's got a great sense of humor over all. Her teaching style is collaborative, more egalitarian (she respects what I already know and meets me at my level), tailored to my particular interests and strengths, and I always look forward to our lessons!
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.
Review by Robert Stallone
I am in my 60s and decided to get back into playing my guitar. I thought taking lessons would be a good way to formalize the endeavor. I did have some concern about whether working with a teacher would work out as I've behave only played for my own enjoyment for a long time. Peter and I have had a few lessons together and I am truly enjoying the experience. He is very supportive and flexible. We arrived at a three gold approach that is really working for me. We focus on developing a playlist, learning some of the more iconic tunes from leading artist that I would have a hard time learning on my own and developing some technical skills related to style and music theory. Now I look forward to my next lesson and am already playing better and enjoying the journey. Peter is a great teacher I'm lucky to have the opportunity to work with 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.
