I am a very diverse and passionate instructor. I've dedicated my life to music as well as working with students and artist who are on a journey of perfecting their abilities. I've performed and traveled around the world with the renowned Boys Choir of Harlem for many years, giving me the opportunity to work with and be mentored by some of the greatest musicians in the world. I have a diverse background in classical, jazz, spirituals, pop and gospel, which have lead to performances with the New York Philharmonic, Boston Philharmonic, Shania Twain, The Backstreet Boys, Jewel and Kanye West just to name a few.
I have been a successful teacher for over 25 years with students on various instruments. My students are successful because of ways to practice effectively, and through my own personal performances as a teacher in major cities across the country. My students have consistently done well in honor groups, have been accepted to major music camps, and have also placed highest in their school groups as well.
I hold degrees from UCLA and Rice University. As a tenor I've sung roles by composers ranging from Mozart to Puccini. I've performed with Opera Las Vegas, Pacific Opera Project, Fresno Grand Opera and La Musicia lIrica in Italy. Currently I'm a young artist with Opera Las Vegas and am a member of the gondolier and streetmosphere programs at the Venetian Hotel Lv
I've always been passionate about music and it is an integral part of my everyday life. Music is like breathing to me...can't live with out it. I learned to play piano and guitar at a young age and was singing as soon as I could talk. I began to compose songs at the age of eleven and found songwriting to be an amazing way to express my thoughts and ideas. In 2009 I started writing songs for Motivational Speakers. The direction of my lyrics went from stories about my life to consciously sending a positive message to my audience. I became involved with a band that played "posi" music and performed many of my songs. I joined the Empower Music Association and participated in their conferences. Music has always motivated me to touch people's hearts in such a way that they find the courage to follow their dreams. What is yours?

Children who want to take voice lessons should wait until they start puberty. Before age 11 or 12, the voice is not mature enough to handle singing lessons. Kids could suffer vocal damage or strain if they start formal training too early. Alternatively, waiting until kids mature reduces the risk of permanent damage. Kids stand a better chance of singing well into adulthood if they wait until their voice is mature enough for voice lessons. By waiting, they protect their vocal cords and are physically ready for regular voice lessons and daily exercises vocal training requires.

As an adult, singing involves more than proper breathing and vocal control. It also includes choosing songs that compliment your voice and taking care of your vocal cords.

We give you the tools you need to succeed while performing or during auditions. Choose your favorite genre, then get ready to sing. We come to your home, or you can travel to our studio. With adult voice lessons, learn techniques that help you sing better today and into the future.
Using your voice as an instrument actively requires the use of your entire body for its function. This is why maintaining the health of your body in general is crucial to maintaining the health of your voice. Smoking, excessive drinking of alcohol, caffeine, and the use of illegal drugs or certain medications is strongly discouraged. Singers are encouraged to drink room temperature water to promote the hydration of their vocal chords. Excessive screaming, loud singing, or singing for long periods of time without a rest can cause damage to your voice, and should be avoided. It is important to eat a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins to keep your whole body and voice healthy. Daily exercise is strongly encouraged, especially activities that require the use of your lungs such as swimming, running, cycling, or aerobics classes, all of which will increase your breath control capacity when singing.
During their lessons, students will learn how to sing with good, safe, and effective vocal technique. Learning to sing with good technique is the cornerstone to improving the tone, range, and health of the voice during singing. Students will learn how to warm up properly, how to increase their vocal range, how to improve and strengthen their tone, performance techniques, how to accurately replicate pitch, how to support their singing with good breathing techniques, song interpretation and how to apply these techniques to singing their favorite songs. Vocal technique is not genre specific and the techniques taught can be applied to almost any genre of music. Students will develop these skills by vocalizing to piano scales. These vocal exercises are things such as singing different vowel sounds on different scales, sirens, lip rolls and trills, articulation exercises, and respiratory exercises. The exercises are tailored to the specific needs and ability levels of each individual student.

Pavel is doing a great job with my 6 year old son. Pavel is doing a great job helping my son focus on technique and rhythm, which is something previous instructors weren't so successful with. Pavel is organized / structured / systematic, which is what my son needs now, but I hope he relaxes a bit as the lessons continue so that more "joy" comes through.
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

This is the 1st time I've ever taken lessons, and Robert has been a pleasure to work with. I've made quick progress and have enjoyed the process. I'm always listening for those tips that you can't find in a book. I can count on Robert to be strict on the fundamentals and am clear it will make a difference in the long run.

I honestly cannot say enough positive things about Rachel. We met her through CYT where my daughter took theater classes from Rachel and was directed by Rachel in several musicals. Because Rachel was so wonderful to work with and so clearly talented at teaching and directing, several years ago, my daughter started private vocal lesson with her and I have seen my daughter's vocal abilities grow in leaps and bounds. Rachel is an ace at picking music to work on that stretches abilities while at the same time, keeps vocal lessons fun. I highly recommend her as a voice and theater coach.
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!

Mike has been working with my son Robert for over a year and has just started working with my daughter Kate. Mike is both a great musician and a good teacher. He connects with the kids and keeps them engaged. He is able to tailor the lesson to focus on music that is interesting to each child. He also encourages the students to participate in a public setting which is great. I would highly recommend Mike.
Review by Jacob Solomon
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

My two daughters wanted to study piano fore some time now and just recently I found Musikalessons website and teacher Milica. I can only say that my daughters are very happy with their piano lessons and simply adore Milica. They already made a great progress and we're all happy with what they learned in this short period. Thank you Musikalessons and Milica.

"I've been taking lessons with Richard for just a little over six months now and all I can say is that he is an amazing instructor. He hasn't followed a set one size fits all script in his lessons but has instead worked with my musical interests and at my pace in a way that is truly valuable. He has also kept things fun, interesting, and engaging even at times when I've felt overwhelmed and discouraged. This is an instructor that is truly adaptable to his students and will make sure that they get the most out of their lessons. I would definitely recommend him to anybody that truly wants to unlock their musical potential."
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.
