I love teaching music to motivated students of all ages. I graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in Vocal Music Education in 2010, and am almost finished with my doctorate in choral conducting. I have been singing in choirs since I was in fifth grade and studying voice privately since 2000. I've had the opportunity to travel the world singing in choirs. I love helping students find their voices!
I have a great passion for music. It has become something that I just have to do. I love instilling the same passion in others too. Music is all about making others feel good and sound good too, which is a great metaphor for life. I will be graduating with a Bachelor of Music this Spring 2016. I have studied Jazz Performance at the University of Utah and played in various Jazz ensembles as well as Rock bands, etc.

A healthy body makes a healthy voice. In fact, your voice is the only instrument that uses your entire body to function. Take care of your body and your voice when you watch what you eat and drink. Limit sugar and processed foods. Instead, eat a nutritious diet that's loaded with vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Drink plenty of water instead of beverages with caffeine or sugar. You should also stop smoking and limit alcoholic beverages. Daily, try to exercise. It strengthens your lungs and your vocal ability. Then rest. Your body and your voice need time to recuperate quietly as you seek to keep your voice healthy.
With in-home voice lessons, discover the depth of your singing talent. A professional from Musika's network will offer personalized instruction in the comfort of your home. Learn to sing R&B, master Opera, or prepare for a competition. All you need is the desire to learn, an effort to practice and a piano or keyboard. The instructor helps you find songs that fit your voice, and you can learn better control and projection. It doesn't matter if you're a professional or a novice singer. You will learn something new each time without leaving the house when you participate in voice lessons at home.
Singing for pleasure or as a profession is one fantasy many kids have. To be successful, they need voice lessons, but a child's voice isn't ready for vocal training until the child has reached puberty. At that time, the voice is mature enough to undergo regular singing, vocal exercises, and other rigors associated with voice lessons. We recommend kids wait until they are at least 11 or 12 before they start voice lessons. The instructors in our network can then provide the personalized instruction your child needs while he or she pursues the possibility of a profession in voice performance.
Learn to sing your favorite songs with adult voice lessons. Instructors in Musika's network are skilled in every genre and musical style. Whether you want to master Opera classics, ace modern Pop, or specialize in Country, we can help you improve your skills and abilities. Start by learning vocal exercises and breathing techniques that improve your skill. Then choose songs that fit your vocal tone and range. Finally, learn to project your voice, control your breathing, and show emotions while you sing. As your singing skill increases, enter national or regional competitions and feel more confident on stage while singing your favorite songs.
Voice lessons focus on development of vocal skills and breathing techniques. They also help you increase you voice's projection and range. Vocal method books and lesson materials can be purchased from a local music store. You can study a variety of vocal styles ranging from classical and opera to jazz and pop. With help from the trained instructors in Musika's network, learn how to read music and how to interpret lyrics and melodies with emotion during your auditions and performances. Other topics generally included in lessons are how to enjoy music and express yourself with singing, proper breath control, vocal cord protection, vocal projection techniques, how to improve vocal volume, how to read musical notations, interpretation of various singing styles including classical, jazz, country, pop, and opera, how to interpret songs, lyrics, and phrases with the proper emotion, and performance techniques and tips, including how to manage stage fright.

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

Giorgi has made learning cello even more fun. From the sympathetic, "It is hard" to the precise, "Be careful about the curve of the thumb" he has strengthened learning in every lesson, without being overwhelming. He started playing a little duet on only the 3rd lesson or so, which made me feel, even as a beginner, that I'm already starting to make (occasionally screachy) music. He has suggested a variety of drills and practice techniques which have also sped up the process a lot. And he has a good sense of humor and surprising amount of patience.

My son is truly enjoying his lessons with Chris. He looks forward to them and is motivated to practice. Chris is conscientious and shows up on time and whenever he is supposed to. He communicates clearly if rescheduling is ever required and is accommodating when we need to change the day. I would recommend Chris to anyone.

"My daughter has been a student with Mark for over a year. She has come so far and has learned so much in such a short time. Mark is extremely talented and knowledgeable. He is very serious, patient and super nice. If your child or if you really WANT to learn the drums, then I highly recommend Mark. He is our third instructor and the best one yet! You will not be disappointed." Michelle S.

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.

Henry has been a great piano teacher since I started lessons about a month ago, and he is helping me realize a lifelong dream. He is patient, plays beautifully, is easy to learn from and a very nice person. I took lessons as a child for a year or so, but never followed up over the years. I always said that I would once I retired and found the right instructor. That time is now. Thank you Henry and Musika!

Angela is a phenomenal teacher. She is full of charisma and is a joy to work with. Most of my experience with her has been focused on working in the Alexander Technique and she seems very knowledgeable in this study. I would highly recommend her to any prospective student. I have seen myself improve dramatically in a few short weeks with her guidance (and much practice of course!)
Review by Jeremy
Dr. Nedra C is incredible. She knows her craft in and out, it truly shows in her teaching. As well, she cares a great deal about the student, and preps plenty of material outside of the lesson for those that she teaches. I've had many different music teachers and am aware who's talented and cares, and who isn't. Dr. Nedra C is true phenomenal, and any student would be lucky to have her.

Martina has been teaching our daughter violin since early 2015. Every time our daughter has a lesson she comes away in such a great mood - she really enjoys her lessons! Martina is positive and encouraging and adjusts her teaching to help our daughter learn the best way for her learning needs. We were curious about how online lessons would work, and it turns out that they work really well. The 1:1 time and ability to teach from a distance make it work just as well as in person. We've had moves and schedule changes and Martina has been very flexible for us - which made such a big difference in making violin lessons accessible. Absolutely recommend her!
