I use a combination if Orff, Kodaly, Dalcrose and Suzuki.
I started playing the piano when I was 7 and the cello when I was 8. I took lessons in both instruments growing up, adding playing the guitar in High School and the violin in college. In public and private schools, have taught elementary classroom music, elementary orchestra, and High School Orchestra.
While learning piano at University, I began to teach students in my home studio. Working in Musical theater, I gained experience teaching piano and voice, accompaniment to balllet classes and theatrical plays. My students participate in award and honors recital throughout year. I have taught piano and voice lessons for over 20 years.
Depending on whether it be voice or instrumental my methods will differ slightly. For beginning voice students (-12) I teach out of a folk songs book, and if they choose, challenging disney repertoire which adds an element of fun, but also is educational. for Intermediate students (12-15) I use the same folk songs book but apply more advanced techniques on proper singing technique, then depending on their level, I might do more advanced repertoire which fits them. For my advanced students (18+), depending on how advanced they are, I start them in the "First Book of _______ Solos" series. This series covers singing in English as well as several other languages and provides a good foundation for singing. Anything else I do with the student is on an individual basis. For younger brass students (10-14) I would teach out of the Standard of Excellence Books unless they are more advanced where I would start them in the Arbans Book, Robert Getchell Book, and/or Schlossberg Book. I would then find solos or other repertoire to work on depending on their skill level. This is also what I would do for my older more advanced students, and again, anything else I do with the student is on an individual basis.
The Human Voice is an Extremely Unique, Complex and Fascinating instrument! Learning to sing with technique is to FEEL muscles movement and develop an acute awareness of them in order to control the aspects that influence the production of your sound. This way, you develop strength, flexibility and release tension as you gain more freedom in your range to express with Confidence! =] I will work with you to grow and develop your skills from wherever you are at! As an experienced teacher, I know that the more senses you involve in learning, the greater your grasp on that concept will be. So, I guide students through the exercises with hand gestures and some interesting visualizations (After All Voice is the Instrument that is unseen!) Together, I encourage my students develop their own visualizations & methods to help them train their muscle memory to fall in to place with less effort each time until it becomes natural. I try to find out what inspires students most to learn singing. This gives me a clearer picture of what skills they wish to attain and I can gently push them toward their goals. I give positive encouragement and clear constructive feedback, so that my students can develop their ear and abilities to self-correct as time goes by. Many things go un-noticed until a voice specialist can point it out. An Example of this may be "You are hitting the correct note and pitch but your jaw is tight and it is getting in the way of your ease to sing higher". or "You may be singing the correct note but your throat is going up and it is causing your voice to strain and "level off". The best teachers (and performers!) are Life-Long Learners and therefore, I plan to continue taking lessons my entire life. (;

When your child wants to learn how to sing, wait to begin voice lessons. The voice can be damaged or strained if you start lessons too soon because it is not physically ready to sing every day and undergo the rigorous training required during children's voice lessons. After puberty, or around age 11 or 12, most children are physically and emotionally ready for voice lessons. By following our recommendation and waiting, you protect your child's voice. He or she is then able to learn how to sing successfully for years to come.
Keeping your voice healthy starts with keeping your entire body healthy. The voice is contained within the body, so following a balanced diet, getting adequate sleep, and reducing stress are all keys to keeping your body and voice healthy. Singers should avoid excess caffeine, smoking, and consumption of alcohol and drugs. Excessive screaming, speaking, performing in loud or crowded places without proper amplification, and singing for a prolonged amount of time without rest should all be avoided. Singers should always stay hydrated by drinking purified water, and try to stay away from sugary drinks and colas.
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.

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!

Eduard is an amazing teacher. (Coming from someone who previously knew the basics of playing and music.) He is not to harsh with his words and is extremely nice. Eduard has a great amout of experience and displays it through his teachings. Specifically by making it easy to follow along with his words to actions. As a person with a wondering mind whom is distracted easily, it is easy to pay attention.
Review by Tuvana
He is incredibly patient and really customizes his teaching style to the child. Both of my children are learning piano with him; they have learned so much and really enjoy the lessons. In fact, my daughter asked to learn another instrument (guitar) with him and is making great progress with that, too.
Review by Ruslan
She is the most amazing teacher ever. She is not only w great teacher but she's so fun to work with. She has taught me so many things in such little amount of time things I didn't even know I could do. I recommend Andrea to everyone. She is an amazing singer and cares a lot about her students. She's the best!!
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
Review by Cameron D.
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
Review by Alex A.
Travis rocks. My 7-year-old son and I both take lessons with him. Travis has moved me off the plateau I was on with lessons that focus on theory and technique. And for my son, he's been able to instill a desire and interest that were missing when he previously took piano lessons. With Travis teaching us, the limits are the ones we impose on ourselves. Needless to say, Travis himself plays a mean guitar to boot!
Review by Dylan Jacinto
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!
Review by Brad Schimmer
I have been playing the drums for about 5 years and I have to say that Alvaro is very patient. He has opened me up to new styles of music and I can now play a Songo groove! What I liked most was that he was flexible in what I wanted him to teach me and would also bring in new material specifically to what I wanted him to show me. Overall, great patient teacher and would highly recommend! Thanks Alvaro!
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.
