I have been lucky enough to have been studying music since I was very little, and so it's now my drive and motivation to share all the lessons, insights, and wonders I've learned from studying a wide variety of instruments and types of music. I'm in my final year of a Music Education degree at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a Music Technology minor. I've been trained as a singer (both as an adult Baritone as well as a soloist Boy Soprano) and as a Saxophonist (all varieties) formally, and a Drum Corps International educated brass player. I have a special passion for working with individuals with special needs.

Students studying voice for the first time as an adult can look forward learning vocal exercises and breathing techniques, which can help improve their range and tone. Adult students may be interested in studying primarily classical vocal technique, or they may want to focus on different styles like pop or jazz. Our network of instructors can help you reach your musical goals!
In home voice lessons are a convenient way to learn the art of singing! The instructors in our network are qualified to teach a variety of styles ranging from Opera to R&B. If you are interested in auditioning for local competitions or even reality TV shows like American Idol or The Voice, the instructors in our network can definitely help you prepare. Most voice lesson music and materials can be purchased online or at a local music store.
Age 11 or 12 is the best time to begin voice lessons when they are emotionally and physically mature enough to begin to learn various vocal techniques. Starting voice lessons younger than age 12 can be very demanding on an untrained voice and can cause damage if the student is not vocally ready. Students that have studied another instrument prior to beginning voice lessons are at a distinct advantage, because they will know how to read music and will be able to apply their previous years of experience to their new instrument.
The strength voice requires the good health of your entire body to be at its best. Many voice professionals advise that students drink adequate water, get enough rest, avoid stress, and exercise regularly. Singers are advised to not talk or scream at at high volumes or for long periods of time on the days of performances. Additionally, the overuse of alcohol or antihistamines can dry out your vocal folds and make singing efficiently more difficult.
Developing your vocal skills and controlling your breathing are key components of voice lessons. With in-home or in-studio lessons, learn these disciplines and perfect your passion for singing. Professional instructors in Musika's network help you learn how to project your voice, control the volume, and improve your lung capacity. Regular practice can also expand your vocal range and singing strength. We can work with any genre or musical style. Choose songs that fit your voice, and then learn how to read the music and express emotion as you sing. Other topics you may learn during voice lessons include how to express yourself and show emotion while singing, how to control your breath and care for your vocal cords, how to project your voice and improve vocal volume, how to read music, how to interpret a variety of musical genres and styles, and how to prepare for auditions and performances.

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.

Jessie is the finest musician I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I find her overall concept of approaching an instrument to be both comprehensive and effective. Each technique she has acquired has made it possible for her to tailor her method to a variety of ages and individuals. I cannot speak more highly of Miss Jessie's abilities. Her lengthy and impressive cradecials speak for themselves. I recommend no hesitation in seeking her services!

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.

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.

“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

My daughter is extremely happy and comfortable with Rachel, and looks forward to her piano lessons every week. She is a very kind and patient teacher, always using positive reenforcement with my daughter, which makes all the difference in the world to children. We definitely are looking forward to continued piano lessons with her. So glad we found her.

I am a beginning guitar player that has now taken five lessons with Jeff. I cannot speak highly enough of Jeff has a guitar teacher! I have learned more in five lessons than the months I spent trying to learn on my own. Jeff has introduced me to music apps that I can use during my practice sessions, followed up our lessons with comments and/or music, is very encouraging - yet holds high standards. During my lessons I feel that Jeff is very observant and tuned in to your positioning when playing - whether it be your wrist, your arm, or your fingers. He always offers recommendations on ways to try to fix something that I might be struggling with. He really pays attention. As an aside, Jeff is a very talented songwriter and musician. Check him out on YouTube. His songs are very beautiful and inspirational. I'm honored to be his student! - Linda

After my first piano lesson, Polina is easily the best teacher I could have hoped for. Extremely charismatic and excited to help YOU learn the piano. She puts a lot of effort into evaluation your learning style and will no doubt help you make tremendous strides! I'm stoked to continue taking lessons!

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!)
