I teach 1-on-1 with students in a personal, attentive environment. I try to provide a very professional, yet comfortable setting for my students to meet their needs. I have 5+ years of experience teaching private and group lessons and am capable of tailoring lesson plans to suit the student's needs. I am capable of traveling to the student's home, if necessary.
Since I graduated from UNCSA, I have been teaching students part time in my local area. I have experience with private lessons, coachings, and musical direction. I encourage student commitment to the art, and consistent practice. I like to give students a backing in musical theory and styles to further enhance their knowledge of music and be able to adapt to different scenarios and experiences. I try to motivate my students to be competitive, but have fun.
I have been teaching privately for the past 5 years in the Greensboro area with students being admitted into special high school musical arts programs. I was also on faculty at the Chapel Hill School of Musical Arts for the 2013-2014 school year. I have experience teaching classical, musical theater, and contemprary styles of singing. As a teacher and mentor, I strive to teach each of my students to be a complete vocal musician. By this, I mean a vocal musician who has complete mastery of all aspects of a fully trained, confident, and competent musician. This includes knowlede of vocal production, musicianship, music history, and music theory. It is my job as a teacher to teach each student how to control their instrument and make the most beautiful sound. I also strive to engage each student in the history and theory of music. These tools are the fundamentals of music and therefore must be a component of a complete vocal musicians training. Musicianship is the creative aspect of each musical artist. It is developed and discovered through the training process. I believe that discovery is the greatest tool I have to help unlock the innate creativity in each student. Discovery is beneficial to both the student and teacher because through discover we can only continue to learn how to sing and how to teach! All of my students are encouraged to have fun, enter competitions and recitals, as well as work on any style of music they prefer to sing!
I have been around nearly every popular piano series and I think each one is has some solid areas. With beginners I like to pick and choose from different books, the primary lesson book being chosen once I meet the student and get a feel for how quickly they are going to progress. Reading music and counting are both so very important if you want to be a successful musician, which means they are the foundation of all my lessons. Also posture, breathing, and proper technique need to be taught from the beginning so you don't injure yourself.
When it comes to music I am very passionate and love teaching students with my modern approach. I have taught private lessons for Piano and Voice consistently for over 9 years. From kids as young as five to adults, I enjoy working with each and every individual student and excited to see them improve over a period of time. I like to inspire my students and set a good example to them. My students are highly encouraged to perform at recitals so that they can work up towards a goal and gain confidence.

As an adult voice student, you'll learn more than proper breathing techniques. You can also improve your vocal range, prepare for reality singing competitions, and improve your vocal stage performance. Start with your favorite genre. After choosing Opera, Country, R&B, or any other genre, decide along with your instructor which style and songs fit your voice the best. Then practice the exercises your trained instructor from Musika's network assigns you each week. Whether you choose in-home or in-studio lessons, adult voice lessons teach you a variety of skills that help you succeed as a vocal musician on and off the stage.
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.
Voice students are suggested to start lessons at age 12 or older. This is due to the vocal development of the student's voice as they move from childhood to adulthood. Beginning to study voice earlier can sometimes lead to decreased vocal production later. We encourage students who are younger than age 12 to study another instrument like piano, which will allow instructors to incorporate vocal elements while they learn musical fundamentals without the risk of vocal strain.
For a healthy voice, take care of your body. When it's healthy, your vocal cords and singing voice are healthy. A balanced diet is the first step to achieving maximum health. Limit sweets, and eat plenty of fresh vegetables, fruit, whole grains, and lean protein. You'll also want to drink plenty of water instead of other beverages. Regular exercise is the next step toward a healthy voice. Aerobics and other activities strengthen your body and increase your fitness level. Proper rest includes getting enough sleep at night and protecting your voice from overuse. With these tips, you'll live a healthy lifestyle and keep your voice healthy too.
The focus of singing lessons will be to teach students how to sing using proper technique in a safe way. Students will work on a variety of different vocal exercises that are designed to build strength, coordination, and add power to the voice. 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. For students with pitch problems, teachers can work through specific exercises to address such issues and get students singing on pitch. Students will learn how to put the various techniques and exercises that are taught into practical use by singing songs. The techniques taught can be applied to a variety of musical genres, from Metal to Pop. Students can also learn music theory and vocal physiology.

“I took drum lessons from Mark for about 7 months. I have been playing for 38 years but always thrive to learn more. He was able to provide me alternative exercises and help me gain a better understanding of my opportunities. I have been able to take my playing to another level. His approach to teaching is perfect for any level of student, beginner or advanced. He is a true professional and an outstanding person. You won't go wrong with Mark!” Blaine Vaz

I started taking voice lessons from Ali when I was 19 and a sophomore in college. Though I was hesitant to be starting "late", I felt very comfortable with Ali and her teaching style. We identified several key issues that really made a difference and improved my voice technique. It was fun to sing popular, beautiful songs in our recital! If only I lived in Los Angeles, I would still be a student. Highly recommended!

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.

Usually I don't write reviews. I am compelled to write for Feng. I've experience finding/working with many music teachers over the years for different instruments (piano, flute, sax) for kids. I think Feng is the best, he is so passionate about music, he encourages the kids. He teaches thoroughly - you can tell he knows lot about saxophone. I would definitely recommend Feng!!

Henry is teaching my daughter how to play piano. Henry is an excellent teacher, we really like and appreciate him. His teaching style works very well for my daughter, she is comfortable which makes learning enjoyable. Henry is very patient and I can see that he is passionate about teaching music. Great teacher for sure.
Review by Chad H.
"Mr. Richard has been absolutely perfect for our very active two boys. He has been an excellent fit for gauging and keeping their interest far beyond what we had imagined. Our boys actually argue over who gets to go first. Mr. Richard knocks it out of the park when it comes to exceeding our expectations"
Review by Steven G.
Laura is the kind of teacher you wish you had in all your studies: gracious, easy-going, light-hearted, yet behind the easy going exterior is an excellent musical mind with everything at her fingertips. I've had about 5 teachers in my life who count as really influential people, and Laura easily fits that category. She lets you be yourself so that you are fully present rather than old-school doctrinaire style, what I call "stiff as a German, sig-heil" teachers. She's the polar opposite. Brava, Laura! Thank you so much!
Review by Marcia Hecht
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!

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.
