I tailor my instruction to the students wants, needs and abilities. It's a creative environment every week and I make it fun and rewarding. We set goals for each week and I review what they want to learn on a regular basis. It has to be fun! When they are having fun they learn more, it's easier and they want to continue.
I always start off with the basics in order to learn about the students skills and range, then move on to a personalized, genre specific curriculum. I always teach with a base of classical to build a strong base for air and range, then move on to a pop, rock or musical theatre based lesson. After building a base with a student, I push them to further tier skill In their genre of interest. I also like to challenge students with different genres and styles of voice.
I'm a passionate instructor who loves working with students from all levels. However, my specialty lies in teaching advanced piano students. Due to the wide variety of experience in the piano teaching career, I have had the privilege of working with advanced piano students. I have had more than 10 years of teaching piano experience ranging from working with a privately owned Montessori school in Buena Park, CA. to working for a Music School, Brea. I have also taught a wide variety of styles ranging mostly from Pop to Country music. I was a Classically raised pianist myself. I have performed in numerous recitals and sung in a few vocal recitals while studying voice as a second instrument.
I create custom lessons plans for each of my students, both on piano and voice. For piano, we spend the first few lessons getting to know the instrument before moving on to repertoire. For voice, we learn the basics of breath and vowel, often incorporating Alexander and Andover/Body Mapping techniques. I teach music as a language, focusing on both reading notes and learning by ear. As students progress in lessons, they learn to read music, improvise, and arrange their own songs all while having a good time!
I am extremely passionate about music and teaching. I have been performing all my life as a professional actor and musician in singing, and have since fallen head over hills in love with guitar which lead my to taking private lessons studying classical and jazz, as well as rock, blues, funk, pop, folk, bluegrass, ect. I am very comfortable adjusting to the styles and needs of my students, and look forward for the privledge to contribute to their musical journey in any way possible. I also took classical and jazz piano in which I can teach beginners the basics of piano and structure. Finally, I am a more gifted singer than guitarist so I am fully capable of teaching voice lessons, having sung on television and national landmarks growing up. I will teach you how to care for your instrument, including voice, and how to use it safely, while improving everyday.

Voice lessons improve your singing ability and your vocal performance. Whether you want to audition for a national reality show or prepare for a theatrical performance, the instructors in Musika's network are here to help. These professional teachers create a customized lesson plan for each student that helps you meet your singing goals. We help you discover the best singing genre and style for your voice, and we can guide your song choice. Typically, your teacher will assign you an affordable method book or other supplemental materials for practice. You can find these books online or at local music stores. A partial list of topics you may learn during voice lessons includes, proper breathing control techniques, how to support your voice and increase volume, voice projection tips, how to read musical notation, how to interpret song lyrics and phrases with expression and emotion, and audition and performance tips and techniques, including overcoming stage fright.
Students studying voice for the first time as an adult can look forward to working on 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. The instructors in our network can help you reach your musical and stylistic goals!
We advise that young students looking to take singing lessons do so at no younger than 11 years old, as they have yet to reach vocal maturity. Learning good vocal habits early on prevents the risk of injury or fatigue or possible misuse of the voice in the future. Students will also benefit from learning key skills like proper breathing techniques, hearing and recreating pitch, and performance techniques. They can also prepare for exams, rehearsals, and competitions. Learning how to sing is also good for children's overall development, as they will improve their concentration skills, raise their self-esteem and confidence, and develop a positive, hard-working attitude as well as a habit of self-discipline through regular practice and lessons.
Whilst singing is certainly a physical endeavor that requires effort, it should always be performed safely and with comfort. If there is any pain or discomfort when singing, you should stop immediately. If such problems persist after resting the voice for a few days, then singers are advised to visit a doctor as continuous soreness could be a sign of a serious vocal problem such as nodules. The biggest culprit of vocal health problems is singing with bad technique. This can include shouting, straining when singing, or attempting advanced techniques such as distortion without qualified instruction. To help prevent the risk of injury or fatigue, singers should warmup before vocalizing and remain hydrated.
Your voice is the one instrument that accompanies you wherever you go. Polish it with in-home voice lessons. Professional instructors in Musika's network arrive at your home ready to teach you how to choose songs that fit your voice, maximize your singing performance, and care for your instrument. All you need is a piano or keyboard, music, and your willingness to work. Whether you sing classical, country, or R&B, we can help you polish your voice. Prepare for a professional performance, an appearance on a reality singing competition, or a solo at a local event when you take in-home voice lessons.

Darrell is A-Maz-Ing! He demands results from his students and therefore results come quickly. The time he spends teaching is intense and packed with great instruction. He is a tough teacher but offers lots of valuable instruction that is applicable for music as well as life in general. I highly recommend Darrell if you are ready for results!
Review by Andy Snyder
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.
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.

After moving from NY and parting from our amazing piano instructor, we thought we couldn't find a piano teacher close to what we knew. We are happy to say Musika matched us up with someone professional and friendly who enjoys teaching younger students. Thank you! We definitely recommend Kuan as a piano instructor :)
Review by Ryan Piveteau
Amber is personal and cares about her students. She is flexible in her schedule and maintains a professional attitude in her lessons. Her want for her students to succeed makes her excel as a teacher. She is very knowledgeable about music and extremely experienced. Additionally, she includes external activities aside from lessons for the students who wish to advance themselves externally. Really a great teacher who offers great opportunity.
Review by Richardpoplawski
I feel she is a very professional teacher and I have already recommended your company and her to my friends who have children that play musical instruments. My 8 year old son has never been so enthusiastic to play his violin. His skills have improved almost exponentially since we have began lessons with Lauren. Your company has exceeded my expectations and I am very happy to have found it online.

Lara is highly intelligent and knowledgeable in her profession. She is cheerful and personable, and has established a good rapport with students and staff alike. I have found Lara to be a highly competent, personable, patient, kind-hearted, and deeply caring person who is skilled professionally and interpersonally.
Review by Ginger
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.
Review by Brooklyn
Laura is a fabulous teacher. She explains concepts to me using concrete examples so that I can understand changes that I need to make to my posture, breathing, phrasing, etc. She makes warm-up exercises fun, and she's got a great sense of humor over all. Her teaching style is collaborative, more egalitarian (she respects what I already know and meets me at my level), tailored to my particular interests and strengths, and I always look forward to our lessons!
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.
