Abbas graduated with an undergraduate degree in music composition and a Masters degree in classical guitar from SMU, Dallas, where he studied under Robert Guthrie.
I really enjoy teaching students to learn to read musical notation and develop the skills they need to play the pieces they want. I love to figure out how a student learns, whether it's aurally, visually or even tactually, and appeal to their sensibilities in way that develops their abilities to express themselves musically. So many things go into making music from physical coordination to heart-felt expression, from left hand to right hand, from chest voice to head voice, from tone to dynamics. I show the student how to separate each of these aptitudes and work on them individually to prevent them from becoming overwhelmed and frustrated.
I have been teaching for the last 14 years for other music schools as well as my home studio. I love to help new students from the ages of 4-99 in learning the joys of playing an instrument or instruments that they are going to enjoy. Nothing truly satifies me more than to see a student advance in their insturment as each lessons passes by. Daily quality and not quantity practice is something I like to encourage the student to be able to advance much faster in mastering the instrument. Encompassing many styles of music from classical to modern music is the key I believe will help the student learn. Playing and instrument should be fun and challenging and should not be thought of as a chore for the student.
For piano lessons I generally prefer to use the Alfred curriculum, but am well versed in other options should the student already be accustomed to certain styles. I have assisted students with their Certificate of Merit completion, and worked several students through the entire Alfred curriculum, till they went on to achieve collegiate scholarship opportunities. As a voice teacher, I employ a Bel Canto technique, and specialize in a Musical Theater Style and Classical Background. Vocal health and proper technique are essential to my teaching methods, and of course, having fun!
I use the teaching method as previously described, and try to tailor my style for each student. Everyone learns, practices, and progresses uniquely -- so it's part of MY job to figure out the best approach to help each of my students. My experience in both the civilian and military music communities has given me a very open-minded but direct approach to WHAT you should learn, and HOW FAST you should be able to progress each individual student. Just ask how my style may assist you personally, or ask any questions that you may have. I've been a lifetime musician since I was young, and love finding unique and fun ways to motivate my students. I've worked with most styles of music before, and arranged music for many as well, so I'm very comfortable helping students with a variety of disciplines and interests.

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.
Voice lessons focus on development of vocal skills and breathing techniques to help increase projection of the voice and improve the range of the voice. Students will learn how to read music and also learn to emotionally interpret lyrics and melodies during their performance. Vocal method books and lesson materials can be purchased from a local music store. You can study a variety of vocal styles in your lessons ranging from classical and opera to jazz and pop.
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.
To protect your voice and keep it healthy, protect your body. You'll want to start by getting enough rest. Rest your body by going to bed on time every night, and rest your voice by limiting the amount of singing and yelling you do. Next, eat a balanced diet. Vegetables, fruits, and whole grains fuel your body and improve your voice. Then exercise. Aerobic exercise is especially important because it improves your lung capacity and helps your body fight illness. Finally, stop smoking. This habit damages your voice and your lungs. With a focus on protecting your body, you also protect your voice and keep it healthy and strong.
You no longer have an excuse to put off your musical dreams. Audition for singing competitions or perform in front of a crowd when you take adult voice lessons. Trained instructors from Musika's network understand the industry, and can give you the tools you need to succeed. Start with your favorite genre, style, and songs that fit your voice. Then practice vocal control, breathing, and projection. In your home or a teacher's private studio, spend time perfecting your voice and preparing for any audition or performance. Adult voice lessons are exactly what you need to achieve your musical dreams today.

Erin has been a wonderful voice/piano teacher for our 7 year old daughter. She is talented, patient, and has a wonderful demeanor. She has been consistent with her teaching in piano and voice. She keeps record of where the students leave off so that they know what to expect the following week. I would definitely recommend Erin to anyone looking for a skilled piano/voice teacher.
Review by Leslyn
Steve is an excellent instructor. My son has really connected with him and he is learning the guitar quickly. Steve is patient and never rushes through a lesson in order to make it fit within the session time limit. In addition, before he leaves, he writes notes and instructions for my son to follow. By the next lesson, my son is confident in what Steve has taught him. Most importantly, Steve builds my son's confidence in his own own ability and progress after each lesson.

Unbelievably Awesome. My daughter is a beginner and has some special needs. Justin is more than patient and helpful while being completely thorough and pushing her (in a good way) to try harder. He is encouraging and teaches effectively. I am very pleased. More important, so is my daughter. Thank you Musika! So grateful we found your service and connected with Justin. We highly recommend him.

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.

David is not only a great musician and educator but also a delightful human. We began using David six years ago as a piano teacher for my two boys. Since then my eldest moved on to acoustic and electric guitar and my youngest electric and stand up bass. Somewhere along the way I began to take guitar lessons also (I was David's most bearded student at age 48). David always came prepared to lead but also to follow, he often asked what we were listening to and taught us how to play it. His ability to listen to a piece of music and transcribe it always left me amazed, we have several notebooks full of songs we learned individually or played as a group. After a shoulder injury David continued to impress by teaching me music theory instead of our usual lesson. I could go on forever, David made a positive impact on my family and feel fortunate to have met him.

Bill has been a great teacher for both my 6 yr. old and my 8 yr. old. He is always on time, keeps them engaged, and gives them just enough of a challenge for the next week. They are both beginners, but I am surprised by how much they already know after just a month or so of lessons. Both kids are practicing willingly and look forward to lesson.

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!

Having taken 6 years of piano lessons myself when I was young, I am very happy with Osmond teaching my daughter. He is very personable and helping her to enjoy piano. My daughter loves the fun songs she gets to play and I really appreciate how he is integrating even in the first month fingering, chords, beats, and hearing the music. She's getting a very well rounded training and she's loving it!

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!
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.
